GURU JAY: TV Politics: Scandal And House of Cards

GURU JAY: TV Politics: Scandal And House of Cards | Lifestyle | Scoop.it
BY: GURU JAY TV Politics captures the reality of political science. And, I’m not talking about a reality TV show with Glenn Beck, Russ Limbaugh, or Don Imus. There’s a dark side to politics no one will talk about until now...

Politics is dirty. Are your hands clean? As a politician, your private life is made public like Facebook stock. Be careful. And, tread lightly.

Einstein was partially correct when he said, “politics is more difficult than physics." I’ve taken both politics and physics. Political classes are way easier than physics. But, politicians have a much harder job.

Political junkies get their fix from shows like Scandal and House of Cards. I call this trend TV Politics. TV + politics = high ratings. Are you a TV Politics fan? Read more @ GuruJay.com Facebook Twitter

GURU JAY: Thank Heaven I Don’t Have Ebola. I Got Saturday Night Fever!

GURU JAY: Thank Heaven I Don’t Have Ebola. I Got Saturday Night Fever! | Lifestyle | Scoop.it
Do you watch Saturday Night Live (SNL)? Can you believe this is the 40th year? What if SNL lasted to the 100th season?

SNL is the best live TV show. There are many copycats but make no mistake; there is only one Saturday Night Live. Creator Lorne Michaels built a respectable show for the ages.

Regardless of your preferences, you must respect SNL. It functions like a fraternity. Feature players are pledges; and Kenan Thompson is President of the Greek Council. Vanessa Bayer is Vice President.

SNL is in a rebuilding process. The show needs to remember their writers are only as good as their actors. Stop making casting changes. Stick to the script. And perform to the tee.

If Tiger Woods can come to a ruin, so can Saturday Night Live. Empires do collapse. And SNL is the Imperial Majesty of sketch comedy.

I’m a long time SNL fan. I won’t give up on the show because of one bad year. It’s like football. The team can stage a comeback next season.

Saturday Night Live discovers top triple threat talents. It’s not unusual for cast members to sing, dance, and play guitar or piano.

Did you know late night hosts Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers started on SNL? Conan O’Brien served as a writer. The show takes good care of their alumni.

Let’s talk about Andy Samberg, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler. All three former repertory players received their own TV shows. What if they were never on SNL?

Alumni Bill Murray, Eddie Murphy and Adam Sandler have had successful movie careers. Lorne Michaels is a miner, because Saturday Night Live finds diamonds in the rough. And Bobby Moynihan is a jeweler.

Jay Pharaoh owns a pawnshop. His Uncle Tim Meadows helps manage the shady business. While sister Shasheer Zamata trades in her jewels for dough, her brother Chris Rock explains why as a black man he loves diamond chains so much. Alec Baldwin Vs. Steve Martin

GURU JAY: The Case of Tom Cruise V. Matthew McConaughey: Who is the Best Movie Lawyer?

GURU JAY: The Case of Tom Cruise V. Matthew McConaughey: Who is the Best Movie Lawyer? | Lifestyle | Scoop.it

BY: GURU JAY

The Sandra Bullock and Julia Roberts Argument

Are you a fan of Sandra Bullock and Julia Roberts? I'm a big fan. I appreciate their acting as well as their philanthropy. I like how they present themselves.

But I’m baffled about this. Who is the best actress? I’m always on the hunt for the cream of the crop.

Even though I haven’t seen Gravity starring Sandra Bullock, I still believe she is the best in the world. Moreover, Sandra and Julia are 2 of the top 10 highest paid actresses. Bullock and Roberts have both won Academy Awards.

However, Sandra is the more perfect actress. I give her a 4.0 and Julia a 3.8. Sandra Bullock has an edge because of her diversity of roles.

If we’re strictly talking romances, Julia wins. But Bullock has proven she is the champion. Roberts and Bullock rank in my top 5 for best actresses.

Sandra took on more risks and challenges while Julia Roberts played it safe. Dare I say Julia leeched off Tom Hanks in Larry Crowne and Charlie Wilson’s War? Isn’t it obvious?

Here’s an analogy to put things in perspective for you: Tom Hanks is to Julia Roberts, what Tom Cruise is to Cameron Diaz. I have nothing against Cameron. I wrote about her.

The point is Sandra Bullock’s skills are superior to Julia Roberts right now. Five years ago this wasn’t the case. Julia Roberts was better then.

Who remembers Pretty Woman and Erin Brockovich? Don’t forget about The Blind Side. Imagine Julia and Sandra in the same movie.

At the end of the day, I put my money on Sandra Bullock. She is a hard worker who is consistent. And, she looks amazing at 50.

Tom Cruise V. Matthew McConaughey

I wonder why Cruise uses the shortened form of Thomas and why McConaughey doesn’t go by Matt. Do you know the answer? I ask because Matthew’s last name is long enough.

Just like Schwarzenegger, I “Googled,” and “Binged” his name for correct spelling. Let’s give him a nickname. How about Matt Mack?

Like his height, Tom Cruise’s name is short.
You love Tom because he is a miniature Matthew. Matt is beloved for his taller stature. Anyway, they have many similarities.

Is it coincidental that these actors portray Hollywood’s finest lawyers? What if they starred in the same film? Picture this: (closed captioned) The Ultimate Lawyer Movie starring Matt McConaughey and Thomas Cruise.

The Trailer Script

In The Ultimate Lawyer Movie Matt and Thomas are prestigious lawyers in a head to head battle. Both have distinguished law practices in Beverly Hills. Who will win in the case of Cruise V. McConaughey?
Written, Directed, and Produced BY: GURU JAY

I bet you that movie would gross $1 billion. Tom and Matthew are basically walking ATMs. Moreover, their fan bases span the whole globe.

They are two world heavyweight champions in the acting arenas. Matthew’s a southern boy who will seduce you with his charm. Tom’s charisma on a scale of 100 is 97.

The best movie lawyers eat charisma like cereal. George Clooney’s good. Have you seen Michael Clayton? Movie lawyers come in all types. District Attorneys are my favorite. (S/O Harvey Dent)

Of course, Tom is a top 10 actor. I don’t want to take away from his brilliance. But, why isn’t Matt on the money list? He’s won an Oscar but it seems the executives refuse to pay the piper. Let that be a lesson to actors who’d do anything for a trophy.

Lincoln Lawyer

McConaughey plays Mickey Haller, a criminal defense attorney, in Lincoln Lawyer. I’ve seen this movie twice. If you’re thinking about studying law, see this film first. You might change your mind either way.

Lawyer movies pose a real danger to America’s workforce. Everybody wants to go to law school after seeing the famous “You Can’t Handle The Truth” scene. Legal dramas such as Law & Order and Suits are also guilty of selling us pipe dreams. 40 million attorneys filing motions is the last thing we need.

Do all lawyers want to be doctors? Well, some attorneys call themselves doctors of law? Seriously, since lawyers sue hospitals, they’re all too familiar with the medical/financial benefits rewarded to brain, heart and plastic surgeons. What is more, it’s true that every doctor wants to be a trial lawyer.

Foot physicians (podiatrists) dine alongside dentists, vetenerians, optometrists, ear doctors and chiropractors at the millionaire’s club. Tom Cruise and Matthew McCanoughey inspire us to make millions while enjoying our passion.

A Few Good Men

A Few Good Men is perhaps the best courtroom drama ever. Ironically, only a few films can compete for top honors. A Few Good Men blurs the lines because it’s also a military movie.

Tom Cruise plays Judge Advocate Lieutenant Kaffee. Jack Nicholson is the infamous Colonel Jessup. Demi Moore also carries out her duties in the film. If you like courtroom dramas and army movies, then look up A Few Good Men.

John Girsham’s A Time to Kill borrows from To Kill a Mockingbird. It’s an updated version of Harper Lee’s classic. In the movie, Matthew McConaughey defends Samuel L. Jackson. The lead actress is none other than Sandra Bullock.

I respect McConaughey for his role choices. Matthew could have been a major action star on par with Bruce Willis. Instead he kept his art pure. Hence, he is an Oscar winner.

You’d think that action movies give Tom Cruise a clear advantage. To the contrary, drama and action are totally different genres. Additionally, Tom and Matt have unique styles.

Tom is aggressive and Matthew’s more assertive. Tom is the guy yelling in the courtroom. Matthew uses tactics in to trap and confuse his witnesses.

Your Honor, I object

Have you noticed in movies and TV, the trial lawyer always stands and says, “Your Honor, I object?” Sometimes the witness says, “I plead the fifth.”

In the case of Tom Cruise V. Matthew McConaughey...After carefully weighing the evidence (movie clips, filmographies, and opinions) Judge Guru Jay has a verdict…I rule in favor of Mr. McConaughey.

Jennifer Aniston Vs. Angelina Jolie: Why Angelina Should Kiss Jennifer's Feet

Angelina Jolie stole Brad Pitt from Jennifer Aniston. It’s okay though, because Aniston is laughing last. Although Brad and Angie make the perfect couple, Jenni is my BFF.

In the long run, I rank Jennifer Aniston higher than Angelina Jolie because of the sitcom Friends. The TV show was on air for 10 seasons. So Jenni doesn’t have to work. The actress has more royalty checks than Prince William.

In the short term, Angelina Jolie is quickly becoming the go-to-girl in Hollywood. Did you know that she’s making a name for herself as a director and producer? You have to respect the lady’s prowess but don’t discount Ms. Aniston’s career. I’m tired of Jolie lovers bashing in Jenni’s head.

Jennifer Aniston was bigger than TV. Is Angelina Jolie bigger than movies? Maybe...
No one addresses this but I will. Brad Pitt made Angelina Jolie famous. That’s right: I said it.

When Angie was going with Billy Bob Thornton she was on the D-List. After jumping on Brad’s bandwagon she made the B-list. I’m not going to get into how she made the A-list. All I can say is: her moves were carefully calculated like a Bobby Fischer chess match.

You see, she helped Billy Bob more than he helped her. Jolie started seeing Brad Pitt when he was big. Let’s go a little further. Jennifer Aniston made Brad Pitt famous.

19 Best Black and Latina Actresses

19 Best Black and Latina Actresses | Lifestyle | Scoop.it
BY: GURU JAY Paula Patton’s portfolio is a solid body of work. Déjà vu is my favorite. Her big break came with Mission: Impossible IV- Ghost Protocol. Have you seen it?

I predict Paula will win an Oscar. Does she remind you of the girl next door? She is the lead actress in the long awaited Warcraft movie, based on the addictive game. Zoe Saldana is the best science fiction actress. I like her in the Star Trek franchise as well as Avatar. Sources say her performance in Guardians of the Galaxy is top notch.

Rihanna reminds me of Zoe Saldana. They both have the ‘look.’ Watch Colombiana when you get the chance.Jessica Alba owns the night as much as Eva Mendes. Alba is a younger Cameron Diaz. In her own right, Jessica has established herself as a household name.

Jessica gives a good performance in Good Luck Chuck. Alba should stick to romantic-comedies. To paraphrase a plumber: “If it ain’t broke, I’m not fixing it.”Gabrielle Union has all of Hollywood talking. First of all, she looks like a model. And, she struts her stuff with the best of them. I’m sure she can give Candice Swanepoel some pointers.

Why is Gabrielle Union undervalued? I want to see her in more movies. The Omaha sweetie is 'like a diamond treated like glass.'You decide. Who are the best Black and Latina actresses?

If you like my content, please follow me on Pinterest. It’s a whole lot of fun. Check out some of my pins here.

GURU JAY: Elite Latino Comedians: The Best in Show Biz

GURU JAY: Elite Latino Comedians: The Best in Show Biz | Lifestyle | Scoop.it
Long before the YouTube dislike button was created, comedians were booed off stage. Like my dad says: “it’s a hard job but somebody’s got to do it.” Comics constantly receive disrespect.

It’s time to show some respect. This is my tribute to Elite Latino Comedians. Here are the Best in Show Biz…Cheech Marin

The great Cheech Marin heavily influenced George Lopez. Heck, Lopez stole his theme music. Harold & Kumar pays tribute to Cheech & Chong.

Stoner flicks are a huge success in Hollywood. With the right mix of talent, these comedies will make millions at the box office. Also, consider the merchandising effect.

Cheech can live off his name. Celebrities love to say, “Do you know who I am?” If you’re a celebrity, you can survive from all the free stuff coming your way.

Cheech Marin crowned himself as the Original Latin King of Comedy. He is a V.I.P. in the comedy world. Many of Dave Chappelle’s marijuana jokes come from Cheech.

GURU JAY: Why Madonna Must Answer to Lady Gaga And the Texas State of Music

GURU JAY: Why Madonna Must Answer to Lady Gaga And the Texas State of Music | Lifestyle | Scoop.it
BY: GURU JAY In 5 years, Madonna must answer to Lady Gaga. The telephone will ring and Gaga is on the line. Will Madonna accept the call? If not, Beyoncé is about to bust her out of jail.Gaga’s music registers 9.9 on the Richter scale. Go for cover because when the lady rocks it’s an earthquake.

If I’m having a party Lady Gaga gets the first invitation. Then I’ll invite Miley Cyrus, Rihanna and Katy Perry. It’s all a matter of preferences.

I prefer high quality entertainment. In the words of James Brown “we’re gonna have a funky good time.” I like Lady Gaga because she’s comfortable in her own skin.

She’ll wear her birthday suit anywhere. She digs deep down in her soul when she performs. Can you name a better performer?

Would you rather go to a Lady Gaga or Katy Perry concert? I am a Katy Cat but I am also a Big Little Monster. Katy stays in the safe zone.

Gaga takes you on an adventure. Now, Katy is the perfect wedding singer. I can imagine my future wife walking down the isle while Katy Perry hits a high note. But, make no mistake Lady Gaga will perform at my bachelor party.

Wonder Woman

There’s TV Politics and there’s Music Politics too. Lady Gaga appeals to an adult audience. So she makes riskier music than Perry.

If Katy Perry is rated PG 13, Lady Gaga is rated R. Okay, I’m not saying Katy gets a free pass. I just think Gaga gets sacked a lot.

I didn’t understand the Tony Bennett affair at first. Now, it makes perfect sense. Gaga is his Wonder Woman and Bennett is her Batman.

Guru Jay's insight:

Clothes are a basic need. Fashion is a want or desire. Luxury is a gift.

My motto is… to each his own. Pick your poison.  If you want to look nice, by all means dress for success

Fashion is poisonous. Walk into a fashionista’s closet; and, you’ll swear it was a warehouse. You’ll find belts, boots, scarfs, and anything fashionable.
Aim to be the best dressed. Mark Twain said: “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.” So invest in a nice wardrobe.

Your apparel says a lot about you. You are what you wear. Do you wear tacky clothes? Are you wearing mismatched shoes?

We all have a sister who splurges on the fancy things. She owns 100 pairs of shoes. And, she is part owner of Zappos. Shoes are the main suspects.

The question is how can someone spend so much money on luxurious brands. In my article, I hope to answer this question and more. I’ll show you how celebrities are culprits.

Guru Jay's insight:
What do Justin Timberlake and Beyoncé Knowles have in common? How are they different? Why does JT get a free pass, while Queen Bee gets a bad rap? For starters J.Timberlake and Beyoncé started from the bottom. NSYNC and Destiny’s Child launched their careers to the moon. The impact of JT and Queen Bee will live on forever. Music is like bubble gum. It sticks with you. Do you ever find yourself listening to the same 1 song over and over? Timberlake and Knowles make memorable music. If you don’t memorize the lyrics, you will remember the beat. If you ask me, Beyoncé is the best vocalist bar none. Justin can’t touch Beyoncé as far as dancing. Still, he has massive sex appeal. And sex sells. Here’s where the story gets foggy. Beyoncé used to sing about love. Now, she exclusively sings about sex. Do you want your children to listen to Beyoncé? Do you want them to memorize Beyoncé’s lyrics verbatim? She might not want to be a role model, but she is highly influential. Music used to be subtle. Now anything goes. Singers swear like Popeye the sailor man in real life. We have to ask ourselves how far is too far? What should we do when someone crosses the line? Timberlake is guilty too. But, he gets a free pass. Beyoncé gets a bad rap. I guess it is due to a double standard. As an adult, I don’t mind Timberlake or Beyoncé’s suggestive songs. But I don’t want my children listening to them. Parents are the answer. We need to step in and monitor the situation. Music making doesn’t have to go down a narrow road. There’s plenty of room for success and error. JT and Bee are successful entertainers who’ve traveled a long journey. Justin Timberlake has yet to rise to the height of his fame. In fact, he’s still growing. In comparison, Beyoncé is bigger than ever.

GURU JAY: Fandom: Are You A Fan, Fantastic or A Fanatic? #Beliebers #Directioners

GURU JAY: Fandom: Are You A Fan, Fantastic or A Fanatic? #Beliebers #Directioners | Lifestyle | Scoop.it
BY: GURU JAY

Are You A Fan, Fantastic or A Fanatic?

Who is your favorite celebrity? Who do you follow on Twitter? Are you in a fan club?

Are you a fan, fantastic or a fanatic?

Justin Bieber, One Direction, and Miley Cyrus have huge fan bases. I’m sure you’ve seen hash tags such as #Beliebers #Directioners and #Smilers. You see singers are popular on Twitter largely due to YouTube. Every musician has a VEVO.

RihannaVevo is the most viewed channel on YouTube. It’s not a coincidence that Rihanna is also a Twitter sensation. The petite Barbados babe calls her fans the #RihannaNavy.

She is one of my top 5 favorite pop stars. Very few can compete with her consistency. Rihanna is a reliable hit maker. Every year she puts out edgy music videos.

Rapper Eminem has 18.6 million Twitter followers. And this number is constantly growing. The 41 year-old Detroit native is defying logic. It’s been reported that the rapper and Rihanna are in a relationship together.

Check out this video ‘Stan.’ It addresses fandom. This is one of Eminem’s best songs.

If you have a talent make sure you use it. If you want to be a celebrity, you need diehard fans. Check out How to Be Famous. If you follow the steps you’ll be a superstar!

Fanatics are crucial to celebrity brands. Demi Lovato calls her fans ‘Lovatics.’ Oprah Winfrey’s brand names include Harpo, O’ (magazine), and Owners (network).

Lady Gaga’s ‘Little Monsters’ and Katy Perry’s ‘KatyCats’ are at each other’s throats. They’re too competitive for their own sakes. It would be nice to hear a Gaga/Katy duet.

FANDOM

Fandom first started with Elvis Presley. Elvis was a musical genius. The King of Rock and Roll is still held in high regard. He is the Las Vegas legend.

You can make a good living impersonating Elvis. Work on your hair, dance moves, and singing style. Elvis Presley was truly one of a kind.

Marilyn Monroe was more than a sex symbol. She was the face of Hollywood. Her image is still recognized.

Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, influenced a generation of music artists. Copycat celebrities sample his songs. ‘Imitation is the best form of flattery.’

Robin Thicke is accused of stealing Marvin Gaye’s music. Thicke’s Blurred Lines uses Marvin’s sound and hook. Due to this, Robin is in legal trouble. Marvin Gaye’s family is mad.

Beliebers, Directioners, and Lovatics dominate Twitter. In this day and age, it is very important to have a strong Internet presence. I do what I can on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. It’s all about connecting fans with a network.

Lady Gaga’s #LittleMonsters and Katy Perry’s #KatyCats are highly effective. There are far too many fan-bases to name them all. But I want to highlight the best ones.

I like Miley Cyrus’ Smilers. They are a loyal bunch. Loyalty is a rare asset. I remember how loyal her fans were to her when she had a health scare. The Smilers posted ‘get well soon’ messages all over the social media sites.

Miley Cyrus is great at interacting with Smilers. The way Justin Bieber engages Beliebers is unreal. To date, JB has over 27,000 tweets!

Do celebrities get on your nerves? Yes, they do sometimes. But thanks to technology, we can get the inside scoop. Now we’re able to Google everything.


Most celebrities appreciate their fandom. Some celebs just show it better. To tell you the truth, I couldn’t tell you the difference between a Directioner and North West before joining Twitter.

I haven’t been on Twitter for six months and I’m already getting benefits. I love how my followers re-tweet me. That means they’re listening and I’m interesting.

Can you imagine Elvis Presley using social media? He would have 100 million Twitter followers. Without a doubt, social networking strengthens your fan base.

Do you think Reality TV could survive without the World Wide Web? The Kardashians based their careers off a viral Internet sex tape. Paris Hilton also gained notoriety from a naughty movie.

I never was a big fan of Reality programs. Now, I’m somewhere in the middle. Reality Shows- I can’t live with them; and, I can’t live without them.

Do you know watch Duck Dynasty? I know people who watch the A&E show religiously. I’ve seen a couple shows myself; and, it’s not bad.

I think TV is in good hands. It’s nice to see a good mix of sitcoms, sci-fi, dramas, action, and reality. I also enjoy educational programming and documentaries.

Do you watch Cosmos? Astrophysicist Neil Degrasse Tyson has a big following of geeks, nerds and exhibitionists. However, the Kardashians and Ducks likely have the biggest Reality TV fan base.

Highly rated shows like the Big Bang Theory, Game of Thrones and House of Cards carry a ton of weight. Still, remember that the celebrity or brand is only as good as the fans. The fan is always right.

Science Fiction and Fantasy fans take fandom to another level. Have you heard of Firefly’s Brown Coats? Are you a Star Wars fan or a Trekkie?

Fan clubs take on many forms. Conan O’Brien calls his followers TeamCoco. You’ll find many celebrities that use Team as a hash tag. Whether the clubs are official or unofficial, they achieve the same goal.

Music, movies and television all require an audience. The entertainment industry will not survive without fans. That’s why brands bombard YouTube with ads. Don’t you hate it when the ad is longer than the video?

Click to read The Importance Of A FanBase & How to Grow One. I suggest you think like a celebrity. Why? It’s simple. Celebrities earn a good living. Just watch your expenses.

GURU JAY: Top 33 Triple Threat And Multi-Talented Celebrities

GURU JAY: Top 33 Triple Threat And Multi-Talented Celebrities | Lifestyle | Scoop.it
BY: GURU JAY

Celebrities need thick skin in order to survive the tough entertainment world. First of all, they are monitored non-stop. Did you know celebrities have more privacy in prisons than in their own homes? That’s why Justin Bieber doesn’t mind NOT passing go (directly to jail).

When celebs walk outside TMZ starts flashing cameras and asking questions. These days the Paparazzi cross lines with yellow tapes. They’re ruthless, I tell you!

But still, there’s not a celebrity on earth that would trade places with the average Joe. Planet Hollywood is a place where stars shine and fans collect autographs. Rehab is about the only place a celebrity can hide.

For the most part, celebrities are treated like royalty. And, they receive endless royalty checks. ‘Jerry Seinfeld’ makes millions from his syndicated sitcom.

This blog post pays tribute to the top triple threat and multi-talented celebrities.

Why am I so harsh? According to Dancing with the Stars everybody is a celebrity. If this is the case, who wants to be famous?

I want to be a millionaire instead.

DWTS functions like Twitter. As a consequence, the show is in decline. It’s losing because it serves a minority. The best shows cater to the majority.

Do you watch DWTS religiously? Are you seeing what I’m seeing? What do you like most about the show?

Don’t get me wrong. The show is watchable. There were many high points and bright moments during the premiere.

However, the hosts are capable of providing better entertainment. Why do we need two hosts anyway? Tom Bergeron can host the show all by himself.

Also, I don’t mind the judges individually but they lack teamwork. It’s about DWTS first, and the hosts and judges second. Listen up, DWTS…
