Hey! Your blog is pretty sweet. Would you check mine out and tell me what you think? Thanks in advance!
Thanks! You know, there are a lot of really good blogs out there written by some really talented people and I’m constantly doubting whether I can measure up to my peers…but your message was a real vote of confidence. Your blog is also really sweet! I like the part where you take your pants off while I watch. Hey, do you like Zooey Deschanel?
There is an epidemic going around that I would like you all to be aware of.
This specifically concerns my friends in the comedy community.
Each day, more people fall victim to this horrible, horrible, disease, and I pray you will not be next.
It’s called the Wacky Headshot.
YOU DON’T NEED IT!, funny people! Just have a headshot that makes you look good. And if it’s comedy, yeah probably smile and wear bright colors. But the silliness and pandering has GOT to stop.
Say NO to goofy facial expressions!
Say NO to outfits that make you look like a well-dressed hobo!
Say NO to “concept headshots” of you doing things like feeding a chicken or riding an escalator railing!
You know how you can prove to a casting director that you’re funny?
By being funny in an audition.
You know how you can get an audition?
BY NOT HAVING A FUCKING ANNOYING-AS-SHIT HEADSHOT GODDAMNIT.
IMPORTANT AUTHOR’S NOTE: This post is written solely in regards to people who use Wacky Headshots for legitimate submissions. I have no problem with them being taken when it’s just for fun. Hell, we all love being funny and looking pretty, so take as many “just for goofs” ones as you like. And put them on Facebook so I can see and comment.
Just don’t staple a resume to the back and take them around town.
Peaking at #5 on the charts, “Baby” is Justin Bieber’s most successful single to date. No other single has entered the top ten.
Smash Mouth has released three singles that have done better than Justin Bieber’s most successful one.
Jennifer Paige released a song called “Crush” in 1998 that did better than Justin Bieber’s most successful single.
LFO’s “Summer Girls” also charted better.
Other artists who have had more successful singles than Justin Bieber include Savage Garden, Natalie Imbruglia, K-Ci & JoJo, Sisqo, Sonique, Samantha Mumba, Crazy Town, S Club 7, Blu Cantrell, Willa Ford, 98 Degrees, and Lou Bega.
And I know what you’re going to say. And you’re right.
It’s not about the music.
Clearly it isn’t, because I challenge any of you to name more than one Bieber song. The songs being released are irrelevant.
What this is really about, what this has always been about, what is the most important part of all this, is that our country is turning a 16-year-old boy into a sex icon.
And therefore, there will no doubt be rape allegations before he can legally buy alcohol.
Two and a Half Men is a god awful show starring a woman-abusing drug addict, and yet it is still the highest rated comedy on television.
I really wish the 100-year-old mummies who watch it had access to internet or at least a remote control so they could change the channel from CBS long enough to see what a horrible, horrible human being Charlie Sheen is and then maybe they’d stop.
