Harrison Ford - Never the Hottest

Posted by ParisCollective | Views: 735
“I was always very grateful I was never 'hot,' ... In the entire length of my career, I haven't been the hottest, the No. 1, the most adored. I've always been somewhere down from the top, so I've never had to suffer being knocked off the top.”
- Harrison Ford

No more weddings.

Everything begins with an idea.  It might not be the brightest, it might not be groundbreaking, and you are most likely not the first to think of it, but it might be something worth working for. It might be something you are meant to see through. It might just BE something.

I have an idea. I have this idea that I might be really good at editing. In my experience doing something you love, usually makes you pretty good at it. Invested. Passionate. So I decided I would open up shop. I am going to find pieces from all over, bring those pieces to one place, and make them accessible to like minded people. Pieces I chose. Handpicked. Love.

My problem is I am a YES person. YES I will show at NYFW. YES I will give the MC Hammer pants a try. YES I will bake your wedding cake (almost always regret that one). And so here I am, YES I really think I can do this. After all how hard can it be? I'm not reinventing the wheel. Buy some old stuff, mark it up, flog it at the local flea market. Have a lovely time.

Turns out it's a teensy bit more complicated than that. I can't speak for the rest of the world, but here's how it goes in Los Angeles...

First you'll need a Sellers Permit (thats an hour or so online). You need to register your ficticious business name (thats a trip to the court house, get prepared to wait). Next you post an ad in your local paper (It's an old school law that makes your business legit, and I kinda love that it's never been changed). Some merchandise requires a police permit. I require two police permits and one state. That involves an orientation at the police department and a whole load of forms. You gotta get your business licence (City Hall for that one). You need to open up a bank account. You're going to need a federal tax ID and you have to handle your income tax etc. And thats not even half of it. Every time I visit a new office, I find out I need a new permit / license / form. There are City laws, County laws, State laws and Federal laws. It's a lot to follow, and it's not like you're handed a list. You're essentially covering your arse blind. And I am a company of one. Add an employee to that payroll and it's a whole other can of worms.

Is it worth it? YES. To me, so far, it is. Because all the red tape is only making me want it more. The anticipation is fantastic! I am literally chomping at the bit to buy my first load of old junk. And I have to say, all in all, the government officials have been kind and helpful. Especially at the Board of Equalization. They're my favourite. Thanks Sarah. 

By the time I sell my first piece, I will have achieved something great. I think it will be a moment in my life. Another goal I just went for. I am proud of that. Point is, if you like my blog and you like my taste, it's going to be available shortly. As long as no one else gets married. My oven needs a break.

More to come. ;-)

LITTLE KID EXPECTED IRON MAN
NOT ROBERT DOWNY JR!! 


Robert Downey Jr. made a toddler cry because he wasn't the 'real' Iron Man.The actor - best known for playing the superhero and his billionaire alter ego Tony Stark - left 18-month-old superfan Jaxson Denno in floods of tears because he wasn't wearing his character's trademark red and gold suit in public.












Heather Denno, Jaxson's mother, was left to console her sobbing son, who was devastated to discover his favourite Marvel comics hero was a work of fiction.She told People magazine: 'He was fine as soon as he talked to him. [He] was so confused because I kept telling him it was Iron Man and he knew it wasn't. Well, not Iron Man in the suit.'

Peeping Tom Installs Hidden Cam in Bathroom

Posted by HorrorBBQ | Views: 791

Christopher Galt, 25, admitted voyeurism after footage taken from the device showed him installing and checking on the equipment on several occasions.

Householders became aware of the camera when they spotted a green flashing light coming from the extractor vent above the bath.

Initially they thought it was some kind of alarm but on closer inspection they discovered it was a USB camera. DC Steve Jenkinson, of Lancashire Constabulary’s public protection unit, said: “The people who discovered it checked to see what was on the camera.

“When they saw that it was themselves they were shocked and immediately reported it to the police.”


CREEPER INSTALLS 

CAMERA IN BATHROOM 

A peeping Tom installed a hidden camera in a bathroom to spy on people using the facilities. 

Fucking Gross! 

Galt, of Wentworth Avenue, Inskip, near Preston, was arrested but denied he had been using the camera to spy on the householders, telling officers he had installed it to check if his dogs had been damaging the bathroom.

However he later pleaded guilty to voyeurism at Preston Crown Court.

The householders, who lived in a rented property, left the house that day and have since found other accommodation.

DC Jenkinson said it was not possible to say exactly how long the camera had been hidden in the bathroom but it could have been there for a number of months.

Galt was handed a community order and ordered to undergo two years supervision with the probation service.
