I knew that one day I would eventually get around to creating a podcast. It’s the first step toward getting my TV show out of the notebook and into something real. But that’ll be done another day. Right now, podcast. Why now? I had a close encounter with a seemingly closed mind on twitter. Someone I had thought was level headed, fair, balanced and all that.
Someone whom I now see as perhaps overly sensitive, quick to judge and possibly paranoid.
I wonder ((?)) what would she think of Alyssa Milano’s “Evolution” video posted on my tumblr at http://dave-lucas.tumblr.com/
iAuthor Tom Hobbs @Kindlemojo has written an e-book he often promotes with the tweet “The Novel that proves: You can’t cure stupid!”
Perhaps that’s applicable here.
It all started with a pop music video.
Below you’ll find the link to my podcast which details the events and my stance.
UPDATE January 6, 2016 ::: Just got this email —> “Since you are on the FREE Buzzsprout plan, episodes older than 90 days will be deleted. The following episodes are scheduled for deletion before the end of your current cycle on February 5th.” So if it is past that date and you are reading this, you’re out of luck. If I re-post the podcast elsewhere, I’ll link to it here.
Are you concerned about “Cultural Appropriation” ?

It’s catching on. Whatever it is, it’s a breath of fresh air to see people whose cheese may have been moved, press on, continue to think out of the box, and make style a personal statement and a win-win situation with liberty and justice for all!
Think substance. Think ‘Cult of Personality.’ Think SIGNATURE.
Do you have a ‘signature’ all your own? A ‘signature’ can be one of the most powerful marks of our existence on Earth’s physical plane.
You probably know someone like this: I know somebody who has ‘trademark colours’ of red and black. Wardrobe. Personal possessions (like mobile phone and netbook). Vehicles. Red and black.
That particular application of red and black serves as an ‘abstract’ signature. Contrast it against a more ‘static’ one that envelops a personality – you’d know Bill Clinton or Karl Lagerfeld or Kim Kardashian immediately if you saw one of them walking down your street. There’s also what I call a ‘blind’ signature – you wouldn’t know him if he stepped on your big toe, but if I told you “that was Jesus” or “that was King Arthur” who just walked by, you know those guys via ‘blind’ signature.
So get out there. Show a little inventiveness. Come up with a little style all your own. Create a SIGNATURE. One that is totally YOURS and yours only, a brand that no one else can claim or take away.
But DO NOT be a copycat! Don’t be a Lady Gaga that everyone will say “oh she stole that from Madonna” – Don’t be a Stevie Ray Vaughn “Oh look, he plays guitar just like Hendrix” and “he wears the same kind of hat Hendrix wore.” Strive to be known as YOURSELF. Do not imitate or emulate somebody else!
