Last night, the website of a certain individual was brought to my attention. Now, I will begin by stating I have never met this person, nor do I have any reason whatsoever to project any ill will towards them. However, after browsing through this person’s various blog entries/photos/videos, I do have to say the impression left in my mind is one that warrants this entry. Not wanting to give said person any more publicity, I’m going to use an alias for him. Let’s call this gentleman Carthur Tade.
The reason behind the use of this alias? It seems that Mr. Tade adheres to the age-old saying of any publicity being good publicity. This is evidenced the most browsing through his press/media tab, which lists all the articles that have been written about him. A quick scan seems to indicate that the majority of these articles were written in a negative connotation. There is even one article from a website where the citizens of Tade’s home state promise to be nice to their apparently rival state if said state will take Mr. Tade. And that is merely one of the several articles.
Moving on to one of the other tabs, labelled the Tade Scale. This scale, created by Tade, is what he uses in determining the attractiveness of a female. Beginning at a 10, naturally, he then counts down to number 6, where he stops the list, claiming that women below that number do not deserve such an honor like being rated by Tade. How sweet.
And then there are his blog entries. The ones that I was able to read through (Note: Do not read the entries before bed. You will have some crazy dreams) seem to indicate a large amount of self-esteem/ego in Mr. Tade. I have to say, the entries are fantastic. It’s like getting a peek into the mind of the kid in high school that you knew was a punk, and consistently let him know he was a punk, and yet he continued to keep on keeping on. Mr. Tade has entries on his preferences in female grooming, elite clubs, the desire to own a high-end automobile, and his acting endeavors.
Oh yes, Mr. Tade also acts.
He has apparently been taking meetings with top acting coaches, all of whom see that “something”. Of course, those coaches will see that “something” in everyone when the first check clears. The entries on his background work for an upcoming feature film are riveting. Simply. Riveting. Nothing better to start your day than with a play-by-play of a movie extra. They served you breakfast, you say? Nice.
All told, I have nothing personal against Mr. Tade. Even though he may come off as arrogant, I’d like to believe that the passion he has for acting is real. And in the acting world, it is necessary to display that arrogance on occasion. But not the whole time. C’mon, Mr. Tade, let us in a little. Let me know a time where you didn’t get into that hot club in the Big Apple. Let me know about a time where you slipped up on a word. Heck, let me know about a time where you stubbed your toe. We’re all human*, so knock down that big ol’ superiority-complex built wall and let us in.
*There is debate as to whether this website is the website for a true-blue person, or if it’s an extremely elaborate hoax. I choose to believe it is real, if only for the fact that the most absurd things are based in reality. Like gravity. What’s up with that?
