Famous or Satisfied?

Famous or fulfilled? Successful or satisfied? Popular or Contented? Rich or comfortable?

What is the definition of success? Does it change throughout our life stages or do we run the same routine over an over again?

This is more a message of self investigation I suppose. When you get to a stage of life and start to question direction or choices.

What makes you really happy? And is happiness enough? Or more to it, do we truly strive for contentment, joy and satisfaction...

You can buy happiness. A fancy car, a tasty meal or a exotic holiday but do these this sustain you? Do they have the ability to be in tune with your core values and belief system?

Maybe... maybe not...

How To Achieve A Goal

It is often said that a way to achieve a goal is to state it, make it real and believe in it.

I have a goal to interview a famous actor. I chose this particular actor because of his status, his work ethic, his path to Hollywood 'A' list staus that was not some overnight success.

To put it bluntly he was not 'Famous By Morning'.

So who is this actor? Well that i'm not going to say just yet but he lives close to me when not travelling the world filming major motion pictures... will keep you posted.

Why "Famous By Morning"?

why or how did I come up with the domain name ?

Well Famous By Morning has a number of sources:

1. While i was watching one of the 'Idol' shows where they go through the auditions. Many of the contestants would plead and beg the judges that it was there only shot at making it to singing stardom. It struck me that many people want to become famous without really working that hard at it. More for the fame and star recognition than the development of the art or themselves.

2. Youtube... watching people do all sorts crazy stunts, weird videos or some really clever stuff and getting instant worldwide recognition really made the notion of being famous "by morning" seem possible.

Below is a singer from a reality tv show that has talent, personality and skill but still struggles to break through... what is missing?

Singles embrace cuddle parties

"Lonely hearts tired of online flirting this Valentine’s Day might want to consider the ultimate antidote to virtual relationships — cuddle parties"

Just like Billy Crystal said in When Harry Met Sally... "Men and women can't be friends" and by the same token... men cant cuddle... they'd have to cross the line. It's in their nature.

So by all means go to a cuddle party girls, but dont be surprised when you feel 'stanley' pop in to say hello!

Or you could try the "Jagg Off"... check it out here:

Win Money... Get Famous... Simple!

Well it's a shameless self promotion for my website... i admit that. But it has the possibility of being one heck of a lot of fun!!!

This is where wild and crazy ideas that would normally not be tolerated/accepted in general society can not only be acknowledged but even better... rewarded!

I have an idea myself and it involves a guy 'mooning' the camera and he will be the 'dot' in the 'dot com' ....

Follow this link below if you want to have a crack (pardon the pun)...

OK... So He's Not "Mr. Personality"

he's a great motocross and dirt bike suspension tuner but, as a presenter for a tv program... i'll leave you to be the judge.

The first clip is about setting race sag for you dirtbike:

The next clip talks about suspension tuning. Now it is also an example of not monitoring audio when footage is being taken. I was given the tapes for this segment and asked to cut it together before the show MXtv due... THE NEXT DAY!!!!! there was no chance/time to re-record audio. The only way to cover the annoying hum that couldn't be filtered out was with a music track. Makes for a complex and busy video. Check it out:
