Obama takes a turn at reality TV in Alaska


BUT



With stupid Bear Gryllis or whoever.   It should have been a Kilcher. I don't think this Bear dude's even an American.



EDIT:  He's not!  :LoudMouth:  :angry:

I honestly think some of the inconsistencies is because she tells part of the stories in bits and pieces and not as a whole. I just quickly googled and found these two old interviews:

This is a from a teleconference from 2000 promoting Chasing Down the Dawn:

http://articles.mcall.com/2000-11-03/features/3334388_1_jewel-book-deal-vw

Quote
Interviewer: `In your book you say that you made a decision with your mother to leave your apartment and move into separate VW vans.`

Jewel: `Mm-hmm` (indicating affirmatively).

Interviewer: `Can you explain that a little bit? Why would you move out of your apartment and into separate VW vans?`

Jewel: `It's better than living in the same one. I didn't actually have the money for a van at first. I lived in a little Datsun 550 hatchback and then borrowed some money from a friend to get a van. It explains in the book, it tells the whole story about me getting fired from my job and not having the rent.`

Interviewer: `Did your mother move into a van at the same time?`

Jewel: `Yeah, yeah. It was sort of a show of solidarity. She knew I was trying to do music, but I had very little time for it because I was barely making rent and couldn't afford food, much less toothpaste. You know, she could have gone and gotten her own apartment, you know, and made a living, too, but to make a show of solidarity and encourage my music, she did the same, and you know, it was a really great and very productive time in my life.`


And this is from 2007/8 promoting Fast Cars & Superstars:

Quote
Q: What was the first car you ever owned?

A: It was a little Datsun 510 hatchback that a friend gave me and thatís the car I ended up living in actually when I ended up homeless.

Q: Iíve read a couple different accounts about you living in a Volkswagen van.

A: It was first my car and then that car got stolen, then I borrowed $1,000 from somebody to buy this van.

I got kicked out [of the place I was living] because my rent was due and Iíd been late on rent. Every penny was going to rent. I couldnít even afford food or anything and I was scraping food off of peopleís plates where I worked as a waitress.

I had another job answering phones somewhere and this guy, the boss, asked me to have sex with him and when I turned him down, he decided not to pay me my paycheque and my landlord kicked me out ícause I couldnít pay the rent. Thatís how I ended up living in my car.

First she said she just borrowed the money, then she said the car was stolen and she borrows the money. That doesn't really seem inconsistent, just her basically being straight forward. I dunno. I guess we'll see what she says in the book. :)

I know the story is relatively consistent from the 2000s - it's the 90s where it's all muddled.

ESPECIALLY the tone of it all.

Quote
"It was one of those things where you get bad job after bad job and you don't know what you want to do with yourself and you have the rest of your life to face consciousness. . . . Finally I just decided to move into my van and try to do something that I liked," she says, her smile giving way to a giggle, "and it worked!" Her 1979 Volkswagen van became her home.

Her mother, Nedra Carroll, says by phone from California, "It was my suggestion that we move into our respective vans and cut all this overhead. We would chose sites, park together, open our doors and have tea."

The difference in tone was enough to spawn this, too: http://www.cracked.com/article_16989_6-inspiring-rags-to-riches-stories-that-are-bullshit.html

Anyway, that was my quick google and most of what I've heard comes from the concert stories that have DEFINITELY changed w/r/t that event, although I wasn't able to google those. :P

Ah, young people. :flower:

It wasn't great, but most comedy is p terrible. They're young people struggling for views.

I don't have a sense of humor, so I never know for sure if something's funny or not. :p

Comedy is one thing, but youtube comedy is something else! :lol: I don't trust most youtube users because the majority seem to try SO hard to be funny that it just comes off as embarrassing. But I'm "old" now, apparently, so I guess I just wouldn't get it. ;) :grandma:

I honestly don't get "college humor". I have a pretty good sense of humor, but I can never find this stuff very funny.  :grandma:

Random musing whilst listening to the tail-end of 0304 in the car today.

In 'America', the f-bomb is censored - but was there ever a version released with the expletive actually included?

I'm guessing not, but there's a small chance that my CD is some kind of clean, international version, or something.
