Wow A Reality Show That’s Actually Good! – abc’s Shark Tank

I don’t watch a lot of T.V. But when I do its CNBC Fast Money, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Colbert Report, Fareed Zakaria’s GPS, and my NFL team (Eagles of course). And even with¬† that being said, I can watch most of these online now.

This new show by Mark Burnett the creator of, well, a crapload of reality shows including Survivor and Apprentice has his best one yet. ¬† It’s called Shark Tank and it’s essentially The Apprentice meets American Idol. People pitch their business Ideas in front of would be investors (including Daymond John creator of FUBU) in an intimidating atmosphere. If you have a business idea and have plan to execute it, this show is a really good depiction of what you may encounter (without the dramatic background music).

I’m always open to anything that sheds light on US media bias.

This flick specifically portrays U.S. media bias against Hugo Chavez, but in a broader way, any leader who happens to favor their people over U.S. corporate interests.

Micheal Jordan Gets Inducted in Hall of Fame

There’s no i in team, but there’s an i in win.

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

This vividly portrays how all that crap about going to school and getting a good job and a successful career isn’t what it’s cracked up to be for some. I really feel for some of the people in this video-well actually only the married couple- the rest not so much.

I have a year left in college with $80,000 in loans (sigh) and I’m at the point where I’m wondering what to do with my life. I have an inkling feeling that blogging won’t be able to pay the bills next year.

Don’t get me wrong though, I’m happy that I did go to college. I’ve just come to realize that the reasons they sell you to go to college (education and/or degree) aren’t as valuable as the life lessons people can come outta college with.
