IS IT HARD WORK THAT PAYS OFF?

   

IS IT HARD WORK THAT PAYS OFF?



Disclaimer: At some point, we all need to put in our time and grind in order to build experience and tolerance. My thoughts following this disclaimer are for those who have already made a few steps up the ladder.

I've recently hit a crossroads with the ideology behind the saying, "hard work pays off." My beef isn't so much with the saying because when you work hard, the work will speak for itself. Right? I think in the world that we're in now, the HOW is not so much, if at all, important when the end result of your efforts are what really determines your value.

ie. You can spend 60 man hours on a project and deliver a presentation that lands you a petty pat on the back and a "nice work" e-mail OR you can spend 50 hours binge-watching a new Netflix original in your underwear while a college student you paid $100 dollars to, creates the same presentation. Which in the end only cost you 10 hours or so. Ya' know, to cover the introduction to an NDA, hosting the onboarding dinner, supervising and revising the presentation until their work was presentable.

You get the same petty pat on the back and the same "nice work" e-mail. Nobody got pissed at you for not putting your already fragile relationship on the back burner to finalize those graphics. You didn't get scolded for missing a family event. In fact, you find that everything was actually better than ok.

Maybe it's time to build a team? Maybe it's time to be more RESULTS driven. I'm of the impression that some of us develop a super-hero complex. Have you ever noticed how some parents put themselves last? Like, really last. Like, when everyone else is dressed up and neat but Mom looks like she stuck a fork in the toaster-kinda-last.

That's the same thing. That is a person sacrificing themselves, their appearance, their happiness to give all of their focus and attention to one thing. Here's the pill that is hard to swallow: NO ONE ASKED THEM TO.

Don't hate me. Wait a minute. Just take a second to register this. The kids can wait. They really can. Mom doesn't have to feel bad for spending an extra $20 on her nails or some extra money on her hair and outfit. The kids didn't ask you to do that. That is the super-hero complex I'm talking about. Where you feel you need to over sacrifice to deliver on something. When all that matters is that you all look presentable as a family and have a good time.

No one asked you to put in 60 hours on the project. You just did it. To save a day that really didn't need saving. The kids didn't stop and ask you to NOT do something for yourself. Drop the complex. Sacrifice doesn't make you a hero. It makes you bitter.

I think the new saying should be, "results pay off."

VENOM MOVIEGOERS ARE PISSED..

   

So, here's the thing about Venom: Get as many friends as you can, go to the theater, buy tickets for Venom, then have the time of your life as you laugh and laugh.

Now, I do want to make it clear that I think Venom is not a good movie, but I also want to make it clear that I had the time of my life watching it. I think in a couple of years Venom could be the type of movie that sells out midnight showings as people come up to the screen and act out their favorite parts - like a Rocky Horror Picture Show type of thing. My point is, if you're in the right group and right frame of mind, Venom is really fun to watch.

Oh and at one point Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock and Venom even kind of make out.

Alright, now that that little detail is out of the way (there's a lot going on in that scene, but I won't spoil all the details), this sounds like a good as time as ever to jump right in. (Also, in case you haven't figured it out yet, I am fascinated by this movie. If a behind the scenes tell-all ever comes out, I will be the first in line to buy it. Okay, that's hyperbole. Most likely I'd just buy it on Amazon, or whatever, and not wait in any kind of a line at all, but you get the point.)

Eddie Brock (Hardy) is the host of his own web-based journalism video series. Basically, if something is fishy going on around the San Francisco or Oakland area, Eddie Brock will be there to investigate. He works for some sort of larger conglomerate that sets him up with a big interview for his show with local tech wunderkind, Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed). There are rumors that Carlton Drake has been running experiments on homeless people that have resulted in a few deaths.

Eddie confronts Carlton Drake about these rumors, they are denied, then Eddie immediately loses his job and his fiancé, Anne, played by Michelle Williams. (Anne breaks up with him because Eddie looked at some top-secret documents on her computer that proves these deaths, which also resulted in Anne being fired from her job as an attorney.) Also, I love the idea of "rumors tests are being run that killed people." Could you imagine if, say, these rumors existed about Elon Musk or someone like that? "Hey, you can't deny the success he's had, now if he can only shake these pesky rumors that he experiments on homeless people and kills them."

Eventually one of Carlton Drake's scientists (Jenny Slate) sneaks Eddie into the lab. It's there he discovers the experiments being done to combine humans and alien symbiotes. And it's here that Eddie meets an alien symbiote named Venom who attaches himself to Eddie. (Best known as first Spider-Man's cool new black suit in the mid-1980s, Venom would eventually become his own character. Because the Marvel Cinematic Universe is currently using Spider-Man in its storyline and Venom is not part of the MCU, Spider-Man isn't even mentioned.)

Most of Venom is Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock walking around with that weird Venom voice from the trailer in his head saying stuff like, "I'm hungry, Eddie." Or, "I want to eat a brain, Eddie." After a scene in which Venom does eat some brains, he and Eddie swim across the bay, Venom spits Eddie out, then proceeds to give Eddie a lecture about what a huge loser Eddie is. At one point Venom calls Eddie a "pussy."

How High 2 Is On Its Way Starring Lil Yachty

   

How High 2 Is On Its Way Starring Lil Yachty

It looks like Lil Yachty will soon be flexing his acting chops. In a video posted to his Twitter account on Tuesday (Sept. 25), Lil Boat announced that he'll be starring in the long-awaited sequel to the 2001 film How High-How High 2.  "I got some exciting news for all my fans and all my haters out there, and all the smokers," Yachty, who recently teased a new album, said. "I want to be the first to announce that we are in production of the long-awaited sequel of How High 2, starring me, you know what I'm saying?" For those who know Yachty, he may seem like an odd choice for a film about marijuana, given that he doesn't smoke or drink. However, according to MTV, Lil Boat will be acting as the character of "Roger," who is the entrepreneurial younger brother of one of the main characters. No word yet on who will be the protagonists of the film just yet-but with any luck, maybe Method Man and Redman will make their return. The film is set to hit theaters in 2019. How High 2 started filming in Lil Yachty's hometown of Atlanta today. Not only will it be a short commute for the 2016 XXL Freshman, but he's also be among friends. The CEOs of his label, Quality Control, Kevin "Coach K" Lee, and Pierre "Pee" Thomas, will also reportedly be credited as executive producers of the film, as will Yachty. -Via XX
