NYT Tells College Kids, They Can Be Film Producers…But Not How To Do This Trick

Four Steps to Choosing a College Major – The New York Times writes today, giving stupid advice to incoming students.  Why is this article stupid, one asks?  Easy: it is saying ‘Follow your heart,’ when choosing a career and ignore advice about the dangers of doing this and uses as examples, virtually all very connected, upper class Jewish success stories, most of which depend on the Media supporting them all.  Ahem.  Yes, you, too, can run around doing as you please if you are one of the Elites!  Just copy them!  Yup.  First, get deep in debt before trying this.

 

What I wish I’d known in college is that most people’s work shape-shifts in unforeseeable ways. I’ve learned this not just from statistics, but from sitting down with thousands of people in candid conversations about work, life and what it takes to forge something that matters to you. It started after college when I realized I didn’t have enough knowledge to decide what to do with my life.

 

Two friends were equally lost, so we started on a road trip of self-discovery, seeking out people who had found something they loved and asking them how they’d done it. That trip turned into Roadtrip Nation, a career exploration organization that produces, among other things, a curriculum for middle and high school students and a long-running public television series about finding meaningful work.

 

Two happy go lucky fellows ran around doing stuff and then get a fabulous career.  *cough*cough*  Yes, any ghetto kid can do the same.  Then, you publish a book and voila: you are rich and famous as it is turned into TV shows, etc.  Easy as falling off a chair…if you are connected, Jewish and not rocking any boats by writing the wrong words.

 

Mr. Gephard is Jewish.  He goes on to find similar examples just like himself and…they are, except one, all Jews and the one exception is a Lebanese of unknown origins and is most likely Lebanese/Jewish and his parents are both upper class top educators/scientists.  None rose from the slums.  All had great connections via parents and relatives and doors magically open for them all and look, you can be anything…so long as you are the ‘right people.’

 

For the Oscar-nominated director Richard Linklater, the noise said that the arts wouldn’t lead anywhere. Friends and family — people he respected — told him to go to medical or law school. But Mr. Linklater suggests you consider where these people are coming from. “Do they really want you to be a doctor? Do they really want you to be a lawyer?” he wondered. “No, it just sounds good.” Instead he realized: “I don’t want to live like them, you know? I don’t want their life. I remember just sitting there going, ‘O.K., I’m going to reject the advice and do the complete, polar, 180-degree opposite of what everyone is telling me to do.’ ”

 
Dropping out of Sam Houston State University after sophomore year, he took a job on an oil rig. He used his savings to buy equipment and take film classes at a community college. The auteur of “Boyhood” indeed defied the expectations of people at home.

 

I used to be married into a Jewish publishing family in NYC.  My in laws hated me because I wasn’t Jewish.  The last thing on earth they would do, was publish me.  On his deathbed, my father-in-law apologized for this.  But I was still very much an outsider and thus, locked out.  So was my non-Jewish sister-in-law, equally a non-person.  This is the level of discrimination within Jewish communities.

 

So how are outsiders going to get into Hollywood?  Hollywood needs non-Jewish actors and actresses so they are hired and fired and toyed with and used and then tossed aside but running the joint, working even at the lower levels, it is often a closed shop.  So the NYT telling everyone, ‘Just dream of being a filmmaker and you will have magic doors open up!’ is a rank lie.

 

All of the examples in this article come from high class backgrounds.  Why the NYT editors didn’t notice this imbalance which screws up the story badly, and suggest the writer go look harder at reality…HAHAHA.  The NYT is all about entertaining the 1% and making them feel good.

 

Confessions of a College Professor is not written by a highly connected ethnic guy who has all the inside deals, it is written by a math teacher who despairs as he struggles to make a living, teaching at the college level.  To get a better view of what is going on in the universe, reading all his articles is highly recommended.  And a very sad trek, too.

 

My college dreams were blasted to smithereens by the Real Rulers who suddenly, during the Cold War, while the Vietnam War was still raging, to kill all the language programs especially German and Russian, both of which I was studying.  Ahem.  Destroyed it utterly.  This is why our Rulers are so infinitely stupid today.  They know nothing, explaining why learning a language is important towards understanding the inner thinking systems of humans, they ignore because they have no desire to understand any humans, they want to force humans to obey commands.

    “They know nothing, explaining why learning a language is important towards understanding the inner thinking systems of humans,”

    YES! I find it fascinating that all languages are gated. Each gate guards kinship and friendship ties. As you pass each language gate, you get closer to the person speaking.

    The Asian languages even have multiple uses for the same words. Even inflection changes the meanings. Imagine all the opportunities for denial of what was really said. Imagine how carefully words need to be chosen. Yet the grammar is strikingly simple with very little indication for past imperfect.

    I had just gotten past beginning Mandarin when my money ran out. Classes for anything are ridiculously expensive. I saw little reason to take out loans.

    I also wanted to add that English does not have these built in gates. Everyone is an insider unless you start using euphemisms.

    The directness of it leads to greater understanding in communication. But does not teach speakers the greater art of social etiquette.

    uses as examples, virtually all very connected, upper class Jewish success — We are not suppose to notice. And this is in a land of 95 million ‘discouraged workers.’
    Hollywood needs non-Jewish actors and actresses so they are hired and fired and toyed–well I was passing FOX Studio, near Beverly ills last nite. The new films or shows are ‘Negro Worship’ as most of the huge billboards were heavily Black.

    Sites of Interest– vigilant citizen.com and SBPDL.

    remember the jews of hollywood had Morgan Freeman play God.

    and EMS, thanks for yr personal stories. I always assumed that you had beena professional writer. Now I know why you were frozen out.

    Anecdote. In the 1980s massage school cost 100.00 and one could get licensed. Now its like 30,000.
    Why? Massage schools are now allowed to qualify for student loans [to30k, I assume]. There are now so many ‘for profit’ schools.
    ITT just closed.

    “Why is this article stupid, one asks? Easy: it is saying ‘Follow your heart,’ when choosing a career and ignore advice about the dangers of doing this and uses as examples, virtually all very connected, upper class Jewish success stories, most of which depend on the Media supporting them all.” These Manipulators MUST say this! Why? What IF they told the truth? College enrollments likely would drop; who is dumb enough to spend HUGE sums of money and go THOUSANDS of dollars in debt–and then get a part-time job as a barista at a coffee shop??!! And of course, since you can’t afford to live on your own, you live at your parents. Geez, what a deal.
    And what if you tell aspiring college students that, if they were to put their college tuition into a safe form of a retirement account, they would have MORE money at age 59 1/2 than any college education income boost would over the course of a working career? Solution? I’ve said this before and will say it again here: SLASH taxpayer funding to as close to near SERO as possible!!! Let these debtmongers work another profiteering angle. Throw these thieves running our University systems into the “real world”!! Let them scape by like everyone else must. They don’t have a problem with doing THE EXACT SAME THING to their former students. Give these rip off artists a dose of their own medicine!
    As for being a Producer in “The Industry” as they call Showbiz, being born jewish is a BIG plus. The Money people that fuel the business, the Producers in the biz AND many of the casting agents and Talent Agencies have a very heavy jewish influence. There are just barely enough goyim in the biz so that people can say Show biz isn’t COMPLETELY owned by jewish folks. (But if you are in the biz and you piss off the jewish folks, kiss your a## in the biz good bye.)
    As for blacks dominating TV and movies, it’s true! The Industry has a very distinct focus on hiring anybody but white actors. This also explains why they like to hire folks from the UK and Australia. Gotta kill that Actor Union, ya know. You don’t challenge jewish power.

    ZERO not SERO. Sorry Elaine, get an ‘edit’ feature!

    Ahem. Yes, you, too, can run around doing as you please if you are one of the Elites! Just copy them! Yup. First, get deep in debt before trying this.–

    Ask Yoko Ono how to be a suck sex in show biz.
    Its who you go to bed with.

    My #8 is ‘Joel Stein in LA Times, Jews Run Hollywood.’

  9. ziff

    i thought you just had to go to yale

  10. Petruchio

    @#8 and 9: “Jews run Hollywood”. In other shocking news, it was discovered that birds fly, fish swim and…a fat baby poops. Being a member of the Tribe is a big advantage in show especially, but the media generally.

  11. Petruchio

    “a big advantage in show [biz].”
