What can I say without being as repetitive as Lispy McSlobberfuck the ambulatory version of Ipecac? He lies a bunch, shoots pics of himself in the toilet like all celebs do, takes a train to set just like Brad Pitt, talks about how all "working actors" get up at 4am to make a 6:30am call time (no, if you were more than just wallpaper you'd be put in a hotel in the city you were shooting and wouldn't have to travel for 2 hours) shoots some video of his apartment with no furniture so he lays on top of dirty clothes, acts like a 15 year old in the back of a car while his "friends" in the front seats won't allow him to shoot their faces, and then walks along the streets of NYC crowing about how he's a celebrity and every one of the people (nobody even looks twice at him) he passes loves him, and wants to be him. God, this guy is getting worse and worse in the area of delusion. I really can't wait until he snaps. I just hope he only takes out his family, his moron friends and himself. For those of you in Philly, keep your heads down. More fucking delusion from Cock Gobbler himself, Arthur Kadyshes (rhymes with radishes)...
When I got back to the 215, I met some friends at Rouge for dinner and drinks (I wasn’t going to go out because I was so beat up, but my arm got persuasively twisted), and met a young guy who is a professional model and actor, and we had a very interesting and intense talk about The Craft and different ways of pursuing your dream. He is a trained actor having studied Meisner, Method, and under various tutelage of famous acting teachers and is a starch believer in the truest form of being a traditional actor, and has a very deep disdain for the “Reality TV World” that we live in now because as he said “They are taking food out of our mouths”. I argued with him that people like Arthur Kade are different in the fact that they are entertainers as well, and are very good at what they do, but are making millions, while trained actors like him are hoping for a big break, and the line between Reality and Traditional Acting is a significant one, but they are both forms of entertainment that take courage and balls to make happen. He said, “Eventually the pendulum will swing back and “The Craft will win out”, and my thoughts were, “The Craft is already winning out because there is freedom to be something more, show the world more, and be yourself in the process”. That’s what has been missing, and I could have never been what I have become 15 years ago because the rules were different, but the great minds, the ones that are sometimes ridiculed and hated like JFK Jr., Christopher Columbus, and James T. Kirk are the ones who are willing to bet their life on discovering a new continent and when they look out their window, they don’t see land, they see a horizon to discover. What’s funny is that the art of “The Modern Actor” that is being ushered in by superstars like The Brand is a combination of those two worlds because it is the story of a rising film and TV actor who does it in a “Reality Type” format because of this blog, and is not afraid to share all aspects of his life while pursuing his dream, and in my opinion that is the truest form of courage because I am doing in such a way that actors like him hate me and what I stand for, while famous authors, actors, producers, celebrities, models, and stars in “The Biz” call me a “Genius” and want to meet me and experience the Kadolution. He was the Anti-Kade, and there is nothing wrong with that, it just lacks courage and imagination, because in the end I am an explorer trying to find a new land that people don’t realize exists.
While at lunch with my friend at my favorite Korean place in the city, Miga, we talked about the discussion last night, and how I respected the kid, but he lacked the life experience to see that The Craft has evolved into something more than it was 15 years ago. I know that many actors with crazy levels of formal training and experience HATE Arthur Kade because of what I have accomplished (I even asked him, “How many brilliant actors and artists are there who can barely feed themselves while horrible actors like Keanu Reeves has a job?”), and how I am changing “The Biz” with my unorthodox approach, and I compared the situation to a kid going to Harvard, making Law Review, and working at a star firm, versus a kid who went to Temple, fucked the hottest girls in the hottest cities, but when the light shines brightest he becomes a star in front of people and has that “It” quality, and essentially will make partner at that same firm way before the Harvard kid because training and education don’t buy “Success”. That is what separates The Brand from the pack, because I bring the best of both worlds together and make The Craft stronger, more alive, more “Real”, and can honestly look in the mirror and know that I walked away from a six figure career and white picket fence life that 99.9% of the Gen Pop would give their right testicle to have to do it “My Way” and created a phenomenon called “The Journey”, actors behind me should thank me for opening up a new door of Art to prevail. One star marketing exec here in Philly told me a couple days ago, “I’m interested to see where this all goes” because we are watching history in the making watching a tremendous actor living “Kade Style” changing the way the Game is played
When I was THE star financial advisor at my old company, I would see kids who graduated from PENN, Cornell, Princeton, and Harvard who had this entitlement mentality and would look at guys like me and laugh, but couldn’t survive what I excelled at for even a month where I dominated at the higest levels for years, because I was better. I wasn’t smarter or more educated, but I was better because I was a Gladiator who could survive in the Jungle, while they would cry for Mommy because there was no caviar around, and I stayed up most of the night thinking about this kid and our talk and when I woke up it hit me. It wasn’t that he didn’t get it, it was that he hasn’t lived long enough to see it yet. I am him and he is me, and neither of us is wrong, it’s just that I am right.
Big Shout out to my fans on the hit show, “Glee”. Heard that a couple of you are following and a big “Kade Style” welcome to Kade Nation. Here are some pics for The Gen Pop of what it is like to be on a Production set. I also have a great story about “The Polar Bear” that I will share in my next post
