Dave Gorman: Modern Life is Goodish

Not a movie but a TV show

Purportedly a comedian, this Dave Gorman has a TV stage show wherein he walks us through his powerpoint slides that he's put a lot of thought into.

The last episode was a guided tour through the 'net app Tinder, in which he impersonated his wife to strike up a dialogue with someone who'd appropriated his (Dave's) photo for a fake account on Tinder.

Now this was all mildly amusing, I found it fascinating, not so much for the insight into Tinder and it's utility in this world of internet, after all, I've been in the web business since it started and nothing is new under the sun as they say.

But I did find enlightening,  the attitudes and also the degree (or lack) of understanding about how this all works.

Am I alone in thinking that the modern generation have become slaves to the  4.7-inch or 5.5-inch screen?

As many would understand, my generation knows how to change the spark plugs in an engine, any engine, we know how to tie down a load on the back of a vehicle so it doesn't depart at the first corner, we know, that dirty shoes can be taken off before entering a house, we know that if we are attracted to a woman and she's fluttering her eyelashes at us and running flags up poles, that it's usually OK to ask her on a date.

We also know, that if our first impressions of a woman, are that she's (using modern parlance) got her resting bitch face on, and is spitting tacks, that this is a sign of things to come and this person is probably best avoided.

We also know, that avoiding said individuals, does not constitue misogyny or male - female harassment.

We can usually light a fire, carry heavy loads, cook well enough to eat well and find intellectual escape in more alcohol than females generally approve of.

We also know, that due to the female of the species' avarice, that we can get a porn star like,  sexual encounter, for a sum of money. And whilst a percentage of females and some males may be providing this service under duress, the majority are doing it by choice, for the money, and a minority are doing it because they love the work.

It would seem to me that a variation of "the world owes me a living" is the modern generation's mantra, this is not just the older generations periodic dismissal of whatever younger generation there is at the time, my parents prolly felt the same' way about my generation.

In my generation, one may have aspired to be a rock star or an astronaut, or a president, or some similar high flier and if we did, it was with a sense, that some work would need to be accomplished to achieve said goal.

The modern generation, or Foofs as I call them, seem convinced that a slavish devotion to a smart phone will shower them with wealth and theretofore, fame and accolades.

K Khardashian is partly responsible, her Mother I think is a marketing genius, but all Kim has really done is make this:

*Note: whenever I see an ex waitress/actress claiming ill treatment or harassment in the news, I do the Google Image test and search the complainants name in images.google.com

Usually there are plenty of 'fake' images there purporting to be the person in question in pornographic poses, sad really, but, there are also usually, plenty of real images wherein the ex waitress/actress is revealing all, for the purposes of self publicity, or career advancement...

More on the deluge a la Weinstein/ read below, not what it first appears...

Jennifer Lawrence was made to take part in a 'nude line-up' of women

Jennifer Lawrence has been "degraded and humiliated" by Hollywood executives, revealing she was made to take part in "a nude line-up" of women.

The 27-year-old actress has opened up about the shocking lows she was subjected to when beginning her career, including forced to strip and stand next to "much, much thinner" women in an attempt for her to be shamed into losing weight.

Speaking about her career at Elle's 2017 Women in Hollywood bash at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles, California, on Monday, the mother! star said: "When I was much younger and starting out, I was told by producers of a film to lose 15 pounds [6.8kg] in two weeks.

"During this time a female producer had me do a nude line-up with about five women who were much, much, thinner than me. We stood side-by-side with only tape covering our privates.

"After that degrading and humiliating line-up, the female producer told me I should use the naked photos of myself as inspiration for my diet.

Lawrence said she approached a male producer about the line-up.

"He said he didn't know why everyone thought I was so fat, he thought I was 'perfectly f***able'.

"I let myself be treated a certain way because I felt I had to for my career." (Coss' comments: " I behaved in a certain way because I felt that would get me a career as a movie star and for that, I would do anything...") The above seems to be more about women fat-shaming each other.

    Coss' comments: Im sure that there are many amongst us, who have had gorgeous young things throw themselves at us, I've often wondered about and usually, mostly declined, these advances, mainly because, if she wakes up in the morning and regrets this, I'll be up on a rape charge or worse,  it doesn't seem that young women have changed their behaviour over the years...

    "This is a very different Hillary Clinton to the managed political performer. Candid, open and at times angry, the former presidential candidate talks about what went wrong and her fears for the future."

    ‚ÄčI saw the Hillary interview by Rachael Maddow on MSNBC, it went as you would expect, at one point I thought, I'd rather have Hilary handling the North Korea crisis than Trumperbelle and his Trumpanzees, but for the last 10 minutes of the interview, Hillary and Rachel just started spitting tacks about men, glass ceilings etc

    And this was before the deluge a la Weinstein.
