Good Day Fuckers! Class is in session. Be seated.
Hollywoodland. A place of many names: Tinsel Town. Hollyweird. Hollyhood. And my personal favorite Hell's Anus--I coined that one. What's not to love about this entertainment wonderland? A place where true American dreams can flourish. H'wood attracts people from all over the world in search of gold. It's a place where classically trained actors set aside their soul to audition for roles like "Black/Hooker"--there was an actual audition for a film only days ago with this breakdown. I wish I were kidding.
Lamebrained cum stained princesses, will tell you that Hollywood isn't about who you know, rather who you blow. I suspect the sale of dental floss spiked as the Thirty Mile Zone expanded. Grossed out by that? Well Hollywood is a gross place students. In order to survive here, you've got to have the skin of a rhino, and the heart of a butterfly. Heaven forbid you should be a plus sized actress--at best, you'll be cast as the a-sexual best friend. Mexican? You're cast as a vato/gardener (sort of like Hooker/Black Girl). Puerto Rican? You're a Mexican. Dominican? You're too dark to be considered Latino. Brazilian? Whites only. Asian? Tech geek--or gun wielding shop owner. Native American? Well, lets hope you have casino money.
Shit for brains band geeks become powerful men who make all the decisions. They swing the tipping point in the direction of their choosing. It adversely affects what you see and don't see. Enter Donald Bogle:
You all should go home and give thanks to the god you love for such a great fucking teacher Donald Bogle. His work has greatly contributed to the preservation of Negro Cinema.
I'd like to conclude my lecture with a snippet from one of my favorite films The Landlord featuring one of the best ensembles in cinema...Diana Sands, Pearl Bailey, Lee Grant, and Bo Bridges. Also a snippet from the original Imitation Of Life starring Fredi Washington. I thank you for attending class. And as always, keep your pipe loaded, and don't forget to pull out.
Via con dios amigos.
