RANT: America’s new sweetheart has a tough lab

Saturday, January 5, 2013

http://www.minnpost.com/arts-culture/2012/12/taylor-swift-walgreens-and-me

A marketing whore?

That’s a little “hard”.

Is that like a man is assertive and a woman is bitchy?

You have to admire that her net worth reportedly jump about 165M$ in the last year. And, that’s what they know about. Her merchandise sales and tie ins fly under the radar.

She’s really the successor to Reba who succeeded Dolly.

The only question is can she sustain it.

The stuff that I read says that there are 2 year transitions early in the “star career” early between 14 and 21. Then they begin to lengthen until they finally become decades. Cites of successful transitions are Betty White, Liz Taylor, Jodi Foster, and Madona. Cites of unsuccessful are Jenna Elfman, Lindsey, Pink, Barbara Striesand, Jane Fonda, and on and on.

It’s a tough business and the public is fickle.

I’d cite Lady Kazan, who technically had a better voice than her contemporary Babs, but lost out. Judy Collins succeeded over Jody Mitchell but couldn’t make the transition form Folk music to the Beetles.

I feel bad for people with a gift who’s gift for whatever reason can not make the leap. “Starving artist” is a cliche.

At the very least, someone like these people must “make hay while the sunshines” because at any minute the music can stop and they are left without a chair.

I think the thing that I admire most about a Taylor Swift is that she “knew” what she wanted to do so early in life and had the huevos to go for it. She sounded “sad” when she said she wanted to go to college but made a decision to forego it to pursue her career. Her “stones” came out when she passed on the record deal from RCA. (Wonder who, if anyone, got fired for that?) And, she had the chutzpah to sign with a start up record label as their Number One artist.

Amazing.

Shows me the nerve of a cat burglar. The savvy of a NYC three card mote dealer. And the Noblise Oblige of some one who’s living their dream.

Argh!

Sometime beauty makes to weep for what you are not.

‘Celebs gone good’: Taylor Swift named most charitable celebrity of 2012 after $4M donation

RANT: Taylor is not the marketing maven I thought she was

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Personally, I was astonished!

She is supposedly a “marketing maven”.

BUT!

She missed the boat — or someone did — with the Walgreen’s deal.

FIRST, She should have has a “display clause”. “Her” display was messy! Needed to be “straightened”.

SECOND, she should have INSISTED on a higher quality notebook.

(a) the paper used in her notebook was of flimsy quality; (not that I think it has to be great, but it was like tissue paper)

(b) it has no red margin line line normal loose leaf filler; (how much did that add to the bottom line!) AND

(c) I was expecting some “personalization”. (Since her audience is tweens, preteens, and at least one fat old white injineer I would suggest that the “notebooks” should have taken the opportunity to communicate something inspirational to all the young girls who hang on her every word and one fat old white guy injineer who wishes he was 50 years younger.)

If I was a “pop star”, then I hope I would try to “communicate” with my young girl fans?

Do I tell them to: (a) study hard? (b) close your knees and bring about world peace; or (c) figure out what you want to be when you grow up like I did and don’t let anyone distract you from your goal.

Out while being a dirty old man, a very young lady came and sat next to me. Maybe 12-14 years old. Before she sat down, she pulled up her jeans. No belt. Obviously, the pants sag as she walk. Not a hefty enough figure to hold them up. (Hey, it’s physics!)

So what’s wrong with wearing a belt or suspenders?

Just asking.

I never see Taylor Swift pull at her trou or dress. (She has people for that!)

Horace Mann School for the Deaf in Allston gets a personal gift from Taylor Swift

INTERESTING: Taylor Swift can turn the tables on the Trolls

Monday, September 3, 2012

Hey, Taylor Swift, here’s how to get sweet revenge
2:04 AM, Sep 2, 2012

*** begin quote ***

Internet trolls have hijacked an innocent contest waged by country megastar Taylor Swift. She will give a free concert and $10,000 to the school that gets the most votes online after “liking” her Facebook page.

Swift’s foes are urging people to vote for the Horace Mann School for the Deaf. Because there’s nothing more hilarious than using deaf children as the punchline to a lame joke aimed at poking fun at a superstar, right?

Swift has legions of public relations people, millions of dollars in income and an international career. Her new song, “We Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together,” is topping charts.

So the 22-year-old phenomenon does not need advice from a 51-year-old local news columnist in Nashville. But here’s some anyway: Babe, embrace this. Own it. Take the joke and turn it around on them. If the Horace Mann School wins — and, with the votes at around 25,000 so far, that looks pretty certain — you get on a plane to Boston and sing your pretty little heart out for them.

*** and ***

It would be a wonderful, generous gesture for her to perform there. After all, music therapy is commonly taught to deaf and hard-of-hearing children.

“Music belongs to all people, and all people have the right to music experiences,” wrote Patricia Winter, a music therapist, in an online article.

Children with hearing impairment, with or without hearing aids or cochlear implants, connect with music. They feel the vibrations. They “hear” lyrics through sign language. Touching the neck of someone singing helps them improve speech skills.

What better revenge would there be for Swift than having photos of sweet deaf children touching her as she sings posted all over the same Internet that’s trashing her?

And one more thought, based on Swift’s own lyrics.

She’s right: People do indeed throw rocks at things that shine. But when you take the high road, they can’t hit you.

*** end quote ***

An EXCELLENT response. 

Rub the trolls nose in it and do good works while you do it.

Sounds very Taylor-esque!

Maybe she good give a duplicate prize to the Number #2 runner up.

I love this idea. When handed lemons, make lemonade.

Webcast it and enshrine yourself as America’s sweetheart. Like Bob Hope or Lucile Ball.

LOL!

FUN: Tongue-in-cheek advice for Taylor Swift

Sunday, August 12, 2012

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/08/04/advice-for-taylor-swift-for-her-romance-with-conor-kennedy.html

*** begin quote ***

Do: All the driving. Leave aside whether you believe in the mythical Kennedy Curse, thought to have plagued the family for generations. Think not of Mary Jo Kopechne, the would-be lady friend to Ted Kennedy who died at the bottom of a tidal channel in Chappaquiddick in 1969 after he took a wrong turn and drove them off a bridge. Think not of JFK Jr., who died in 1999 while piloting his own plane, taking his wife and sister-in-law with him. Think not even of Kerry Kennedy, who blamed a recent car wreck on a seizure. Teen boys are the most dangerous drivers in America, accounting for 30 percent of the total cost of motor vehicle injuries in the country. Why tempt fate? Better yet: Hire a chauffeur.

*** end quote ***

In my earlier “advice”, I was worried for “America’s sweetheart”, the poetess laureate of puberty. The Kennedy’s are not what I’d call a “model of faithfulness”. How they are labeled “Catholic” defies my common sense? But, then if I was a bishop, I’d be suing for false advertising. 

I pray that she comes through this with a worst some good song material. 

Argh!

Being an old “SWIFTIE” has its angst.

Andrea and Scott Swift were married 25 years ago, having their daughter Taylor and her younger brother Austin.

The couple allegedly split sometime within the past two years, but have remained mum on the sensitive subject, according to an unconfirmed report by Star magazine via RadarOnline.com.

“The Swift’s stopped wearing their wedding rings,” an insider said speaking to Star. “They haven’t filed for a divorce because they don’t want it to damage Taylor’s career.”

Sure it does.

The gal needs to find her one true love.

The big thing is do we call it “Taylor-negger”, “Pat-wift”, “Patta-Tail”, “SwiftaSwarrz”, or will we have another great “revenge song” from the Princess of Puberty?

She reminds me of when I was young such a long long time ago. When I was one of the young and beautiful. At least in my own mind.

One concern I have is marital fidelity doesn’t run in the Kennedy genes; nor Schwarzenegger ones. So, as an old “swift”, I’d advise her to be extremely suspect of their intentions. 

She’s not fifteen any more. And, lest she wind up plucked and thrown aside like Abigail, i’d use the aspirin method with these clan of philanderers! Joe Kennedy, Kerry Kennedy, Michael Kennedy, Kennedy nephew William Smith, Skakel, … chips off the old block — Bootleg Joe, JFK, RFK, and Teddie.

Either that or bring her Mom and Dad on any date. 

Remember Martha Moxley, Mary Jo Kopechne, and countless others. That came out a lot worse than wear and tear.

 *** end quote ***

I’m surprised for a social media maven, Miss Swift, who made her mark by pioneering on MySpace / Facebook / Twitter AND who usually has great rapport for her fans, lets her “label” block this video.

It is a stunning failure.

Let’s not kid anyone, she’s the prize “cow” in their “barn”. You tell me if she pitches a hissey fit — which I have never heard of her doing — that they won’t do what she wants?

Unbelievable!

Just doing that ONCE for the FIRST time would even make a bigger impact on the “label”. Bet that would be online in two shakes of an inet admin in one hand and graphic artist in another. THe label head would be grabbing huevos to please the prize “cow”!

Please!?! <<making a real prune face in disbelief!>>

I also read that the “label” was concerned that performing for WalMart might damage her “image”. I think trying to “kinda partially hide” is a bigger dent.

She has slipped a couple of notches in this old Swiftie’s estimation. She’s generally pretty astute and comes across as caring. I’ve no way of knowing, but that’s the image that they seek to project.

Restricting the video is contrary to that image.

imho …

… but then I’m just a fat old white guy injineer, who thinks that WalMart for all it’s faults and flaws ain’t Amerika’s biggest problem. (Politicians are!)

Come on, Miss Taylor, free the video.

p.s., We now know why she couldn’t go to that sick kid’s prom. Boy! Have some WalMArt marketing execs missed a HUGE opportunity? I can think of a half dozen ways to spin this into a BIG win for everyone!

Dumb seems to be going around lately.

FUN: Evaluating Taylor Swift as Sandy version 2.0

Overheard: Taylor Swift should star in a ‘Grease’ remake
CNN (blog)

Lately, I’ve thought Taylor Swift could probably [play Sandy], because she’s very talented. And my daughter, I’ve always thought she could.” What do you think of the idea of a “Grease” remake? And do you agree that Taylor Swift would be a good pick?

Overheard: Taylor Swift should star in a ‘Grease’ remake

*** begin quote ***

It’s probably only a matter of time before “Grease” joins “Footloose” and “Dirty Dancing” as classic films being remade for a new generation, and Olivia Newton-John knows it.

The 63-year-old actress told “Showbiz Tonight’s” A.J. Hammer that she’s not opposed to the idea of a “Grease” remake, and even has an idea on who could star in her role as Sandy:

{Extraneous Deleted}

*** end quote ***

# – # – # – # – #   

63? She can’t be. She’ll always be that demur timeless “Debbie Reynolds as Tammy” girl who morphs into one hot “every boy’s fantasy”. If she is 63, what does that make me? OLD!

And, I just realized I missed my chance (in my dreams) to win her heart!

Argh!

I would advise Ms. Swift — as if she needs advice from a fat old white guy injineer — to be very careful. I believe that she can pull off the role of pre-transformation tightly-emotially-wrapped Sandy with ease. BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), she might need a body double to out “hot” Olivia Newton-John’s Sandy as the more-tightly-physically-wrapped “trampy” vamp. I think that would be hard to beat. Boob job or not!

FUN: Taylor Swift wins twice

Monday, April 2, 2012

Stayed up too late, two nights in a row.

Saturday night, watch FLOTUS present Ms. Swift with the “Big Help” award. The two were obviously fans of each other.

(But I did think the acceptance speech was awkward, but heart felt. Maybe the little girl is growing up and can’t just wing it anymore.)

(Yeah, I know. No life watching the slime show.)

I thought FLOTUS was a good sport when the slime flew. Some commenters on the UK site thought she was the devil incarnate. Fair’s fair. While I don’t like her politics, she did well inspiring little kids. And I heard nothing political in her words. And, it seemed like her girls were having a ball.

Sunday night, ACM entertainer of the year (again). (She owes it all to Meridith the cat. That probably sent all the tweens and teens to voting.) Sad that she was dateless. But she showed real class with her “shout out”.

(It’s reported that she’s promised to make it up to the sick young man in the hospital. I bet it’s even better than the ACMs.)

So other than admitting I have no life. It was two fun evenings.

(Who else could be “entertainer of the year” when she blew them all away in dollars earned?)

Oh well, what will she accomplish next?

(And, she was a knock out. Eat your heart out all the dumb guys who let her get away. Good jokes about “Denver sacrificing a virgin” and Swebow on the ACM.)

Cancer-stricken N.J. teen to miss date with Taylor Swift

CHERRY HILL, N.J. – In his second bout with cancer, 18-year-old Kevin McGuire won over the Internet and Taylor Swift.

Now the fickle fight will keep the high school senior from Stratford, N.J., from accompanying the superstar to Sunday night’s Academy of Country Music Awards.

Hours after being in “great spirits” Thursday, and a day before his planned departure to Las Vegas for the show, McGuire was dealt a 103-degree fever and taken to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, according to his mother, Vicki McGuire.

The Break-Up Story

*** begin quote ***

Sometimes, I get tired of love stories. So here’s the story of how my ex and I broke up.It was Saturday, March 12th, 2011, and I remember because it was the first official day of Spring break. I was a sophomore in college at that time, and I had just begun a recovery process that was going to take about a year to come to fruition.

I was recovering from over 4 months of ulcers and IBS, which played a part in me getting panic disorder a few weeks after I started the spring semester. It had gotten to a point where I had to go on medication, and a week after I started taking meds was Valentine’s Day. My ex and I were in a long distance relationship, so he sent me a card in the mail saying how he would support me during this hard time, and how he would be there for me.

*** end quote ***

Wonder how I’d have felt if I’d lost my soul mate. Kinda like a feel now. I’m sure that a God who’s all good would not let that happen (i.e., you never meet that soul mate).

“You can’t be afraid. It’s not right to be afraid. It’s as if you don’t trust the Lord with our lives. I’m not a big Bible Banger, but it seems rude to joggle God’s elbow. Like a little kid, who has no concept of what is happening.” — character “John” in CHURCH 10●19●62 Volume 2 Page 206

“My love, were it in my power, I would sadly grant thee this boon. But, we have to continue to follow His Plan for us. Let’s go forth and speak no more of this. Who ever is last will be last. It will be His choice; not ours. We’re but humble custodians of His temple on earth. It’s not our place to trump His plan. Whatever that plan be, know that I will be with you to my last breath.” — character “John” in CHURCH 10●19●62 Volume 2 Page 399

My soul mate passed on about a year ago. So, I can somewhat empathize with what your feeling.

All I can say is, that like I’m doing, is to pick up your burden — if I was a better Catholic, I’d say “cross” — and move on.

Not easy. I use a lot of music by Taylor Swift — stop laugh at a poor fat old white guy injineer — which I find strangely empathetic to my life.

Hope I made you laugh!

A Hug From Taylor Swift Part 2

http://youtu.be/ws6OW4VtiV0

A Hug From Taylor Swift Part 3

http://youtu.be/E2mVJW6PpgQ

# – # – # – # – #

Learnings from the Taylor Swift’s Auburn video

1) YouTube and Verizon have issues

Watching a YouTube video is a mess. You can figure out what the technical dimension the problem is. Users don’t have access to the diags necessary to tell where or what the problem really is. What’s worse one always has to be suspicious that either or both have their “thumb” on the scale. Verizon to sell FIOS or 4G. YouTube to extract payment from the ISPs.

2) YouTube software

Try resetting a video to someplace other than the beginning. Doesn’t work for me. But shouldn’t it DL the file to you so you can play it over and over. You shouldn’t need a utility or another site to collect it for you. Plus why can’t we have one open standard for video.

3) Assumption

You have to admire the innovation of these two Auburn guys, and one webmaster, for their ability to capture the essence of the inet and social media. Taylor Swift gets kudos for finding them, challenging them, and making the event. Of course, if I made 35M$ last year, I’d take a chance. Maybe not! It could have been a bust. So there was some risk in it for her. She could have been playing to an empty house. Not very likely. She could have leaked it to her fan base minutes before and I’m sure the tweens and teens would have packed the joint. I know I’d have gone. Everyone won. They got their hug; she got the buzz.

4) Make it happen

You have to admire these fellow’s ability to “instantiate” their vision. The Eastern philosophies always suggest that vision precedes actuality. These fellows demonstrated that principle. Or is it a meme? You have to visualize the end and the Universe will “make it so”. To steal a Star Trek line.

5) Noblese oblige

Taylor Swift exemplifies this meme. She could have, but never has, sat in her tour bus and counted her pennies. How to say one of her CPAs wasn’t doing this for her ( i.e.: “Taylor, do realize what this is going to cost you?” “So, how much is five million hits on YouTube worth in terms of paid downloads?”)? She seems propelled by human emotion. But buzz does translate to dollars, so she can be ‘frisky’. Knowing that the “buzz” is worth gazillions. That doesn’t diminish her. She really is an icon.

6) Fun

You have to be “hard hearted” not to enjoy the serendipity of the whole scenario. Other than a “young girl skirt” around some rowdy college students, one would be hard pressed to find a flaw in the whole video. Marginally, one can feel bad for the campus and her security people who had to make her safe. You can see the expressions on their faces that they were not happy on what should have been a sleepy afternoon. You have to wonder how the many folks who were “locked out” felt? Sorry, but I always look at the silent majority feels. I’d have been the 350+1!

# – # – # – # – #

I’m told the skirt is not that short. Guess it’s my Catholic school upbringing when the girls would roll down for school and roll up for dismissal.

There is so much to learn from this whole “thing”; it’s stunning.

Biggest thing is that Taylor Swift has a natural sense of “playfulness”. For a super star to play along with the gag is impressive. I’m sure that her marketing people thought of this as a marketing bonanza.

It demonstrates that principle of intention. That is that everything begins with an intention.

Clearly, they never knew how it was going to work out, but they defined the end state and pursued it.

The joy of both the guys and the star. It’s obvious and palpable.

Leaders create their reality.

It’s well know that I have a tremendous amount of respect for Taylor Swift. I’m not some dirty old man; just old. I think she’s got a lot of attributes worth emulating. The recent bikini picture upset me. Not for the suit or that it’s on the net, but she looks anorexic.

So, I pledge $100 donation to the charity of her choice for her to gain ten pounds.

I’ll even take a picture of her eating fast food. (If you listen to the “food police”, that will make you instantly fat.)

You look at pictures of her from 2004 to today and you can see the girl get thinner by the year.

Now she looks like a death camp inmate.

So, I hope she can “plump” up a little. She doesn’t have to become a heifer. Just make it back a few pounds.

Think of all those young girls with body image issues.

Hope her Mom speaks to her frankly.
