Finally, I'm Going to be a Movie Star

Since I don't have much else to do, I figured that becoming a movie star would be fun. After all, it looks like they're having fun, especially on that red carpet. Yesterday I wrote about my work together with Michael Moore.

He only needs to do that interview he promised and then I'll be all set.

But he hasn't called and my contact person just left his team.

So, when another film team from Hollywood called me a month ago and asked if I wanted to participate in a movie which was going to premier either at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2007 or in Cannes, I figured, this is it. I've got my shot at stardom.

And then, when I learned that the guy who contacted me was nominated for an Oscar in 2003, and his producing partner won the Oscar that year for Best Documentary with BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE, I was sold.

Apparently, he also won the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2004 with FAHRENHEIT 9/11.

And I didn't feel bad about working with the competition. After all, if Michael Moore doesn't call back about "Sicko," I figured I could work with these guys.

And contrary to Moore, who hasn't yet shown up, these guys did fly in from L.A. last week. We spent an afternoon together and they learned a lot about growth hormone that they had no idea about and so did I.

My biggest surprise came when one of them pulled out a package with growth hormone which he had ordered from a compounding pharmacy on the net. If it wasn't fake, I'd guess that pharmacy had replaced the manufacurer's label on the bottle with their own.

I had no idea you could simply go on the net and get that stuff, including syringes and needles.

So what about the movie?

I'd love to tell you about it, but they asked me to keep the content confidential. So that's what I'll do.

But come next year, I'll go to the premier and write all about it, just like Arianna so famously spends her time. Come to think of it, because that is what Arianna Huffington does, I'll probably not do that.

Feels kind of cheap and vulgar.

But I will go.

If I get tickets.

Cheap and vulgar is what Arianna does best. Remember when she ran against Arnold Schwarzenegger for Govenor?

Schwarzenegger saved his attacks for Bustamante and Huffington. At one point, Schwarzenegger took a shot at Huffington for targeting the Bush administration as the source of the state's problems.

"If you want to campaign against Bush, go to New Hampshire," Schwarzenegger said.

The tension between the two peaked when Schwarzenegger began to cut Huffington off and she said, "This is the way you treat women, we know that. But not now."

Schwarzenegger replied, "I just realized that I have a perfect part for you in Terminator 4," getting laughs from the audience - but a rebuff from the moderator.

After the debate, Huffington said the "Terminator 4" comment was an offensive reference to a scene from "Terminator 3" in which Schwarzenegger's character stuffs a female robot's head into a toilet.

"That was such a clear and ambiguous indication of what he really thinks of women," she said.

Schwarzenegger, by contrast, said the debate was "a fantastic experience" and described Huffington as "entertaining."


It sounded more like she was jealous of Arnold's connections since he did blockbusters and she could only get roles in movies like EdTV.

That's probably why she puts so much effort into hyping Hollywood on her site, she's trying to make some more deals.

I wouldn't worry about being the same if you wrote about it, the thing is HOW you write about it right?

But be careful about the kinds of deals those producers make and what sort of promises they make, since it's well known what they mean when they say "Trust Me" in Hollywood.

I think you should make a point of walking right up to Ariana and introducing yourself - live and in person like. The look on her face alone could be worth the trip.

(She shouldn't be hard to find either, as she enjoys blogging every last detail of her (mis)adventures at such gatherings.)

Arianna, the Paris Hilton of the blog world.

What was that???

Oh, no worries. It was just the sound of my HuffPo account being locked down.

Go for it Doc, you'll look great in the tux!

Arianna's true colors are revealed by her latest post in which she criticizes Israel's actions from a strategic perspective, not a moral one. Of course, any moral argument would have to identify Israel as the genocidal killing machine it is, and this would alienate her from Hollywood's power brokers.

Blogger beeta said...

anonymous (last),
I was wondering why they keep removing the posts critical of Israel so quickly on THP, I guess Arianna is trying to have her cake and eat it too. And then Bill Mahers post remains for a couple of days. They say that Mel Gibson may be forgiven by the Jewish community in time, but he may never get another movie deal.
So, what does she want from hollywood? She wants to be an actress? or just get invited to the parties or play with the big boys?

Blogger Argon said...

Well since the last movie she was in was in 1999 and she's only been on a few TV shows since then like Hollywood Squares, Real Time, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, I doubt she wanted to be an actress.

I think she'd rather be a politician but since she can't get elected after trying a few times I'd say moogirl was right and she's settled for being the Paris Hilton of the blog world. and just get invited to all the parties to hobnob with the bigwigs.

I wouldn't count Mel Gibson out just yet, since money talks in Hollywood. He's already proved he can finance his own movies and he's still got drawing power to make money off them. So I doubt that everyone will turn him down to share in a stake of the pie just because of a few badly chosen words he's apologized for. As they say, nothing can ruin your career in Hollywood except getting caught with a live boy or a dead girl.

Huffington is to the spirit of the Blog community as George Bush is to Compassionate Conservatives. I can accept that she is a frantic attention seeker, a fraud, and the Webster poster child for "hypocrite" but what does it say for the hundreds of myopic bloggers that turn a blind eye to their sponsor?

Blogger Moogirl said...

Hey Shootmeister,

When you say sponsor, what do you mean? What sponsors? Inquiring Moos want to know!

Blogger shooter45 said...

MooGirl, your brain was what caught my eye in the first place, but when it starts "inquiring" look-out!, my hair's on fire!
O.k, I'm calm now. "Sponsor would be Arianna. She's the sponsor of the Blog, no? Those bloggers, and there's a couple of hundred of them, I think, either don't "Know," or they put a clothes-pin on their nose and write, diverting their eyes, just thrilled that they have a forum that will have them. I think most of them "know" but when it comes to the morality of appearing on a site "sponsored" by a duplisitus, pulsating, narcistic, manipulating, fraud, they're struck with paralysis. They lift their eyes from their keyboards, give a guilty look toward their neighbors, then say "you first." No takers? No sweat, I'm cool. Type, type, type.....

Except for Greg Gutfield, the lone voice of disention but he only has something intelligent to say once in a long while and seems satisfied to use reverse psychology to bait people and just laughs about it when they react blindly. It doesn't improve the situation, it just makes Greg look as pathetic as the people he laughs at.

Blogger Moogirl said...

Ohhh, I get it now. So does Arrianna have sponsors? I mean, does she answer to anyone or is she the Queen Bee? And narcissism doesn’t begin to describe the writers over there. I think that’s what turned me off in the first place. They are all so self-important and they think they’re so clever. Hell, WE’RE clever-er than they are! (clever-er?) Better to stick with the Queen Bee than to be deemed uncool!

Ya know they remind me of that clique back in high school. You know the ones, always so busy convincing everyone else that they were as cool as THEY thought they were.

But what really drove me away were the commenters Talk about the last bastion for the dregs of the earth. I’ve read more intelligent comments on the back of the bathroom stall door!

Ok, I’m done.

Oh yeah, PS. Beeta is now calling us Moo-Shoo. I love it! She may be the clever-er-est of all!

Ok NOW I’m done.

Blogger shooter45 said...

Aw c'mon MooBabe, you're done when I say you're done. And I just put a fork in a meaty part and you ain't even rare yet. Bonnie and Clyde ain't got nuthin on Moo-Shoo! there's a whole lot of Hell that needs Raisin, so let's put down the doobies and go help the lost Pilgrim Peter Rost.

Blogger Moogirl said...

I thought I took all the sharp objects away from you...

And Pilgrim Pete ain't lost, in fact, I think he's on the verge of finding himself!

Sure hope he picks "King of the Blogosphere" as his future endeaver. I hate it when my rants are homeless!

Now please, step away from the fork and get to typing!
