TINA “KNOWLEDGEABLE” PEDEN’S WACKY-ASS BUSINESS IDEAS & VENTURES FOR CHRISTMAS TIME IN THE NYC! (LIGHTBULB 4)


Hey Broadway, Lincoln Center or Radio City Music Hall but in particular Radio City Christmas Spectacular, I couldn’t help but notice that some of your Christmas productions are really quite beautiful!

However……….

I have also noticed that some of your Christmas productions have also taken a big-ass dose of ex-lax and become quite regular.

And Broadway, Lincoln Center or Radio City Music Hall but in particular Radio City Christmas Spectacular, sometimes that regularity shit ain’t good.

I mean, come on ya’ll, it’s Christmas and it’s the Big Apple for Christ’s sake!

Ya’ll bitches really need to shake it up and show the world that NYC still has some kick-ass Christmas cred.

And low and behold, I, Tina Knowledgeable Peden, am here to help ya’ll with that.

Hey!

Red and green lightbulb!

Hey Broadway, Lincoln Center or Radio City Music Hall but in particular Radio City Christmas Spectacular, have you hallowed bastions of Christmas glory ever considered doing a special Xmas version of the hit 1986 song, Yah Mo B There by Michael McDonald and James Ingram?

To further bolster my yuletide business lightbulb, check out these kick-ass holy spiritual lyrics:

Yah Mo B There!

(Song Lyrics By James Ingram/Michael McDonald/Rod Temperton/Quincy Jones)

(Verse 1)

Heavenly father watching us all
We take from each other and give nothing at all
Well it’s a dog-gone shame
But never too late for change
So if your luck runs low
Just reach out and call his name, his name

[Chorus]

Yah mo be there (up and over)
Yah mo be there (up and over)
Yah mo be there (up and over)
Yah mo be there (up and over)
Whenever you call

(Verse 2)

Never be lonely lost in the night
Just run from the darkness
Looking for the light
‘Cause it’s a long hard road
That leads to a brighter day (hey)
Don’t let your heart grow cold
Just reach out and call his name, his name

[Chorus]
Yah mo be there (up and over)
Yah mo be there (up and over)
Yah mo be there (up and over)
Yah mo be there (up and over)
Whenever you call

(Verse 3)

You can count on it brother
‘Cause we’re all just finding our way
Travelling through time
People got to keep pushing on
No matter how many dreams slip away
Yah will be there

(Verse 4)

Well it’s a dog-gone shame
But never too late for change
So when your luck runs low
Just reach out and call his name, his name

Yah mo be there, I will be there
Yah mo be there, When you need a friend
Yah mo be there, yeah ill be there whenever you call

Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Now ain’t those song lyrics beautiful but cool!

And you know

Broadway, Lincoln Center or Radio City Music Hall but in particular Radio City Christmas Spectacular what would be even cooler?

It would be oh so cool to see a Jesus look-a-like and a big ol’ jolly Santa look-a-like up on your big-ass stages performing the song Yah Mo B There at Christmas time in front of the masses!

It would definitely be something different and break you out of your ex-lax regularity shit cycle.

I’ll tell ya’ NYC that even I would pay big money to see Jesus and Santa doing a soulful rendition of the song, Yah Mo B There while at the same time shakin’ their booties and gettin’ down with their good selves to this song.

(P.S. That’s some ultra-funny but ultra-inspiring shit!)

So Broadway, Lincoln Center or Radio City Music Hall but in particular Radio City Christmas Spectacular do yourselves a big-ass favor and get off of your ex-lax asses and immediately license the song, Yah Mo B There for a musical production, pay the astronomical licensing fee, write a kick-ass musical number, rehearse the heck out of it then when the time is right, i.e. November 9th – December 30th start performing the hell, pun intended and sorry Jesus, outta that baby! And watch the yuletide dollars come rolling or should I say, prancing in!

By the by, Broadway, Lincoln Center or Radio City Music Hall but in particular Radio City Christmas Spectacular you NYC giants might also want to consider teaming up with Lance Manufacturing, LLC because they are the owners of the Archway Cookies brand in order to sell their ever popular Bells & Stars Christmas Cookies during your holiday musical performances and in exchange Lance/Archway could put photos of either Broadway, Lincoln Center or Radio City Music Hall but in particular Radio City Christmas Spectacular on their cookie packages to further promote your Christmas holiday performances. That way you’ll have profitable but tasty Christmas dollars prancing in at Xmas every year! And what a lovely yet delicious Christmas tradition that would make!

Hallelujah and Amen!

And another P.S. Broadway, Lincoln Center or Radio City Music Hall but in particular Radio City Christmas Spectacular if you really want to break out of your ex-lax regularity shit cycle, you might also want to consider performing two other Michael McDonald songs for your Christmas productions.

Perform the song, I Keep Forgetting, with a Jesus look-a-like, a Santa look-a-like, and a female vocalist of your choice wearing Blues Brothers type hats and call the group “The Heavenly Hats.”

And perform the song, Sweet Freedom, with a Jesus look-a-like, a Santa look-a-like, and a male vocalist of your choice wearing Blues Brothers type red, white and blue hats and call the group “The Heavenly Hats.” And don’t forget to add in a dancing Statue of Liberty!

That way you’ll have three kick-ass Christmas musical numbers to represent and give kick-ass cred to the NYC!

Really take a bite out of the big candied apple at Christmas time this year!

HOW TO ACCEPT A SICK OR AGING LOVED ONE!


Let’s face it, our first reflex reaction when it comes to hearing something negative is to deny, deny, deny!

No, it can’t happen to me or someone that I love. It only happens to other people.

Next, we cry, then we get mad but eventually we come to the final phase in the grieving process which is acceptance.

Whether the final outcome is good or bad, accepting the inevitable or things that we cannot physically change can not only set us mentally free and give us a unique sort of peace of mind but it can also give us one of the greatest gifts of all, power.

Acceptance gives us the power to get our asses out of bed and fight!

With this new fighting spirit and attitude adjustment, here are a couple of tips to help further aid the acceptance of your sick or aging loved one:

Make Your Sick Or Aging Loved One Do As Much As They Can Do For Themselves!

And I stress the word, “make!” Sometimes good ol’ fashioned encouragement is not enough. Sometimes a person has got to put their foot down. So, do not, I repeat, DO NOT LET YOUR LOVED ONE SIT ON HIS OR HER ASS! If your loved one is physically able or having periods where they are not feeling too nauseous or sickly, make them do certain things for themselves such as light house cleaning or paying the electric bill online. Who cares if they complain, let them! Who cares if they get pissed off at you, let them! Making your loved one do as much as they can do for themselves not only benefits you but them as well by giving them a sense of purpose and renewed sense of self-worth and can help alleviate those feelings of helplessness, even though they may not be able to see it. Bottom line: Make your sick or aging loved one do as much as they possibly can do for themselves!

Seek Out Assistance If You Need It!
Remember, there ain’t no shame in asking for help when you need it regardless if it is only a five minute ride to the doctor’s office. Everybody needs help at some point in their lives and no one person can do it alone all the time. Let’s face it, there are alot of people out there like me who are squeamish when it comes to needles and blood. So i’m a person who definitely needs help when it comes to those things. Get the picture? So ask for help when you need it. Whether the help you seek is from a professional care giver service, an independent home health aid or friend and family members, ask for help if you need it no matter what. Don’t be afraid to ask for help even if your sick or aging loved one doesn’t want you to or gets mad. In this case, compromise or find some common ground by being discreet or choosing together a person or persons that can assist you.

Try To Provide Care For Loved Ones At A Time Most Convenient For You!
I will stress the word, “try.” I know that some people may find that this sounds selfish or self-serving and that this may not be at all entirely possible or realistically in the cards but if you can, try to provide care for your sick or aging loved one at your convenience. It’s good for your psyche. For instance, if you work an eight hour shift, try to take at least a 1 to 2 hour break in between completing tasks for your loved one. Because again, let’s face it, nobody truly wants to work a full-time shift then come home and work another part-time or full-time care giver shift without having some much needed rest or downtime in between.

Don’t Forget To Take Care Of Yourself Too!
So many times we are so busy taking care of someone else’s needs that we neglect our own which is one of the worst things that we can do. If we don’t take care of ourselves then who is going to take care of our sick or aging loved one. They need us as much as we need them. So here’s your personal kick in the ass! Remember to take as many rest breaks as you can throughout the day. Try to eat as healthy as you can and get as much physical exercise too. And if you happen to pass by a pastry shop with a delectable looking chocolate cake in it, go in there and buy yourself a piece. Spoil, reward and do little things for yourself! After all, you deserve it and your sick or aging loved one deserves it too.
