How to get on a Reality Show

reality-tv2

I have been watching reality shows for a few years.  The main shows I watch are “Ice Road Truckers”, “Deadliest Catch”, “Extreme Loggers”, and just recently, “Gold Rush”.  The one thing all the characters on these shows have in common is “They ALL whine.” They take “whining” to the highest level and the best of the best on these shows is the commentator.  When the characters begin to taper off on whining the commentator jumps in and starts projecting on everything that can go wrong will go wrong.  As the show progresses the commentator points out what one of the characters is doing while you watch and tells you what that person is doing wrong or “might” be doing wrong.

There is some general whining that covers all of the shows.  Like for example “I have been up for 48 hours about to fall asleep standing.”. “What do they expect, I am new.”, I miss my family.”, “If I don’t get home soon I will go crazy.”, “How can I work in this terrible weather?”, “It’s to cold.”, “It’s to hot.”, “We are not making any money because Joe parted his hair on the wrong side of his head.”, Yada, Yada, and Yada.

Now if you really want to get on one of these shows you need to specialize your whining.  If it’s “Deadliest Catch” or “Tuna Time” you need to study the art of fishing in the ocean.  “Tuna Time” is a new reality show and I think all they did was use the old scripts from “Deadliest Catch” because they sound like they are using the same whines.  “We are not catching any fish because the captain does not know what he is doing.”, “How can the captain expect us to work in this storm?”, This is storm is making the deck slippery and it’s getting too dangerous to work.”, “I am a greenhorn, what do they expect from me?”, “If everybody would work as a team we could get rich in just a few weeks.”, and Yada, Yada.  On “Extreme Loggers”, “The “skidder” is broken and I can not get loaded.”  The saw broke and we are at a standstill”, “That 10 ton tree almost hit me when it fell.”  “The boss wants me to climb to the top of that 200 foot tree and cut the top off.”, and Yada, yada.  On “Ice Road Truckers”, “If I go too fast I could end up in a ditch or run off the side of a cliff.”, “The heater is not working in this rig.”, “The road is a sheet of ice and my tires are losing there traction.”, “I have to be in Nogascatuwan by midnight tonight with this load.”  “It’s snowing so hard I can barely see past the hood of my truck.”,  and Yada, Yada.

It’s probably fairly easy whining about the job, but what these characters are really good at is whining about making tons of money in a short period of time and how dangerous their job is.  I wonder if it ever dawned on them that the more dangerous the job the more money they make.  I don’t think so because the whine about making thousands of dollars in just a few weeks.

So now go out and find a really dangerous job where you make tons of money is a short period of time, study the industry and get to specializing your whines so you can zero right in on the subject matter.  Be sure to study the history of the industry and the disasters so you can have something to refer to if you get so good at whining you become a commentator.  When the show slows down they always go back to something terrible that happened in a given industry history.  For example on “Tuna Time” they mention “The Perfect Storm” on every show and sometimes several times during each show.  They always compare it to what is currently taking place and they always find a crew member or two who was “fishing” in the same decade as when the storm took place.

Now, go out there and get that great job and don’t forget where you got the tips on your new career.  Be sure to mention the “Alboutnothing” when you’re on camera spewing out the greatest whines in the history of reality TV.  The sad thing is “The Curse of Oak Island” used to be “whine” free, but the commentator recently has been whining and repeating old show history.

Opera Browser Review and other AAN stuff

My long vacation is over an it’s time to report on what we have been doing and the many interesting places we have been both on-line and off. I have been screwing around with Firefox and Chrome both of which pissed me off so we read about Opera and so far we find it to be perfect for our needs.  We are on it now and so far so good.

We have been living on Twitter for several months supporting the anti-Trump folks and pushing for the #calext (California becoming its own country) proposition. We like #calexit because the point is we don’t want some moron like Trump determining our present and future.  We also have been organizing the Reiki folks world wide to send healing energy to the victims of the recent hurricanes and earthquakes. I once lived in Florida and would not go back, but the folks there have taken a beating and we care.

Recently we discovered that several dating sites contain hundreds of scammers of various types and we have names and will be doing some blogs on what we experienced and solutions. Right now if you are on a dating site and the person you are talking to lives in Ghana and they are asking you for money to get a new cell phone or some other expense then they are probably a scammer. Google “Ghana scammers” and look on YouTube you might just see something disturbing.

We are happy to say that we are still smoke free and have helped other to become the same way. Motto “Smoke cigarettes is like holding a gun to your head and pulling the trigger on a gun that shots a slow moving bullet.” You will suffer and your family will suffer right along with you.

We still watch So You Think You Can Dance, Deadliest Catch (Less), Americas Got Talent (Addicted to Heidi), Pawn Stars, every Golden State Warriors game (Eat your heart out Chicago), every Raiders game, some 49’s games (they need to win us back), The Voice (Less), X Factor, just to list a few.

We are also going to be reporting on some medical experiences that we have currently (Noting major) and have researched. We consider ourselves blessed that we did not have any issues other than shortness of breath after we quit smoking but what we found was he inherited one called Orthostatic hypotentension which has no cure but can e managed, and another called Polymyalgia Rhueumatica (PMR) and 20% of PMR patients have Temporal Arteritis and we are in the 20%.  Then for our followers who have met us here is a little tidbit that will probably make you smile. Between quitting smoking and the medications we have gained some weight after 65+ years at no higher than 150 we now weigh in at 190. At least we have leveled off here. (Hope you did not injure yourself when you fell off your chair Aaron). We must add that Stanford Hospital and The Stanford Medical Group have been beyond outstanding is every phase from the supporting staff to the amazingly talented doctors.

Of course there is more, but we have a craving for Cheeto’s and need to go find some.

We have nothing else to report except to say to everyone we hope you and your families are all well and we send you many blessings. We hold ourselves grateful having met so many great folks and knowing some very special people.
