The Emanuel Brothers

Rahm Emanuel has just been crowned the most powerful man in Washington by GQ magazine on their top 50 list. Along with orchestrating the asswhipping the Democrats gave the GOP for house seats in 2006, he’s Chief of Staff to President Obama, and was also senior adviser to President Clinton back in the day. When observing his success and his brothers Ezekiel, and Ari (who they base Ari Gold from Entourage on), one can only assume upbringing had a lot to do with their success.

Here are some clips of the brothers talking about life growing up:

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 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.
