“To be or not to be”.. Who??

I have been wandering countless times about my acting skills, for a couple of reasons: first, I had a few personal occasion (aka girlfriends) to rehearse with and, secondly, I believe I did a marvelous show at a conference some time ago, it was a large theater in Marrakesh that a vendor did rent for a convention.. great stuff..

However, and despite the fact I did enjoy both situations, I believe stepping in front of people may actually be a daunting task for most people.. all eyes on you, you feel like every word weights a ton whilst coming out of our shaky lips, and that bloody spot right on your forehead, hum, what about it????

Need no worry, now!! You can be the Brad Pitt of cyberspace, the De Niro of avatars, and by Jove you will be having your lifetime chance with Paul Verhoeven (ok, this appeals to your “basic instincts” then…)!!! The man will hold auditions on SecondLife….

I have always hated, truly, madly, deeply all reality shows, since I thought those were just a step towards unreality of acting, a showing off for the sake of some mindless mass of people .. now we are actually considering to step quite beyond that event’s horizon I believed was Big Brother, to have virtual actors in a virtual world….

I am puzzled..

But I also believe this is the sign of the changing times, and media most varied will cater for a different need set of a different mankind…

Change happens, someone said (more than once) that also s#@t happens, but that is another story…

So, what do we really need? Escapism from reality, really really that????

Escapism is mental diversion by means of entertainment or recreation, as an “escape” from the perceived unpleasant aspects of daily stress. It can also be used as a term to define the actions people do to try to help feelings of depression or general sadness.

Drugs did (do) the same… how come?
