Non-Active-Activism

I’m a lot of things… but an “activist” isn’t one of them.

You are not likely to see me holding a sign that says “Down with &*#?!” any time soon or anywhere close.

I’m more or a guy that is “for” something rather than “against” something.

May people aren’t “for” things because there is positive effort in being a “for” person and it seems that human nature leans more toward the negative, or “against” posture.

Blah, blah… and… blah.

Here’s what I do… because I am a “non-activist.”

I saw a film about a certain oil company that apparently did some major damage in our gulf coast some years ago that likely destroyed the fishing business and the families that depended on it.

By the way… if you are someone who loves fish and the business is destroyed you can always go get lesser fish from some store somewhere for a greater price. As the consumer you/we have many choices. As the fisherman… if your waters are contaminated… you’re screwed. No livelihood… no food on the table… no college education for junior.

That’s bad stuff. It’s hard enough being a fisher family without adding a mutant, inedible catch to the equation.

But I digress… Continue reading Non-Active-Activism

All,

It is a new year and I made a promise to myself  to learn and design a word press site so I could finally keep up with all that is going on in my crazy head/world.

Well… I did it!

Please feel free to come look around. Read a little. Shop a little. Look at a video or two. You know… kick the tires and take it for a spin like the good old General Lee or Jonathan Kent’s faithful work truck.

At thejohnschneider.com you will find info on past shows, shows that are coming back soon and some that may never come back. There are videos and music and interviews and stores and links to bands and composers who made smothered possible.

It will also tell you when I’ll be somewhere like at the tribeca hilton next Monday and Tuesday for the pre party and premiere of the 2nd season of Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots.

In short… I am only going to go to thejohnschneider.com from now on at least 90% of the time so I can keep up with this ever changing world of technology that we find ourselves living in.

I know that some will be upset with this decision but it was either get in manageable or let the whole house of cards fall down.

I prefer it this way. Hopefully you will to. If not… well… a wise man once said that you should never trust someone who everyone agrees with because that person is lying.

I liked that guy. Smart fella. Anyway…

Feel free to comment on my blogs or drop a note right there on my site. I’ll get to everything that comes here as quickly as possible and respond to most. Be patient with me though as I am still figuring out what the hell a widget is and how it effects my life!

BTW… I reserve the right to post your comments on my blog. In fact… I think it does it automatically and randomly. So be yourself, Always.

I am going to be honest on the blog. Up front and sometimes blunt. I’m going to be that way because that’s the way I am. Often times people want to put people into a box that they design for them. Not for me. No more of that from 2014 and on.

In the spirit of honesty I am putting what I’m told by many is the worst picture ever taken of me right here for all to see. It happens to be one of my favorite pictures of all time. See..? Odd. Here it is:

Some will be enlightened occasionally, some offended occasionally. I can’t help it. I am going to write my blogs the way I write my screenplays: From the heart. From experience. From my often odd perspective.

Hang on. It’s going to be a heck of a ride!

Happy New Year!
