My Thoughts on Kim Kardashian

By maceo manhattan, published on Dec 13, 2006

As a fellow Middle Easterner nothing is more humiliating than watching Kim Kardashian speak to the media. I heard her name a couple times via the radio and television but nothing was quite like seeing her talk on "Access Hollywood". In all my years of being exposed to American airheads including white wash Middle Eastern American airheads, never have I come across such an ill-informed prude of a person. In day of age where Iranian woman in the U.S. are becoming doctors, lawyers, and pharmacists Ms. Kardashian appears to have tipped the other scale and gives a horrible impression of the Middle... (more)

The Art of

By maceo manhattan, published on Dec 1, 2006

Let me start by saying that I have been affiliated with the nightlife scene for five years now. Believe or not I have managed to never due drugs and avoid drinking 99.9% percent of the time. I will save that story for another time. So lets explore the club business for a moment. What are the elements involved in making a Hollywood club successful: 1) Shareholders 2) Promoters 3) Drug Dealers 4) Police Officer/NARCO (on and off duty) 5) Models and affiliated pretty people and 6) Celebrities. Basically, a restaurant entrepreneur will seek out investors from all walks of life. These investors... (more)

The Superficial Male: Bionic Biceps Meet Personified Pectorals

By maceo manhattan, published on Nov 21, 2006

Yes, I go to the gym at least five days a week. Uh huh, I drink protein shakes like it is an elixir from the fountain of youth. Right on, I like to lift big weights and have strong biceps, pectoral and a pronounced lower body. Does that make me superficial, sophisticated or both? As a youth growing up in Los Angeles, I must say I was behind the curve when it came to procuring a rock solid physique. I was definitely not under or overweight, but I did not make the football team either. Rather I was a 6 feet tall 160 pound peppermint stick never drank, nor smoked, or used any drugs. It was not... (more)

"My Beef with Borat"

By maceo manhattan, published on Nov 21, 2006

So let me get this straight. There is child of an orthodox family who went to orthodox schools who is now bashing his on roots to make millions of dollars? I love it! Call Sacha Baron Cohen a genius, call him unorthodox, call him even crazy, there is no denying that the man knows how to create a character and adapt to situations. When 'Ali G.' flopped at the box office, Sacha Baron Cohen went to his next character “Borat”. He perfected it over a span of eight years and was able to capitalize on it with a movie budget of only 17 million. As I dressed the role of “Borat” for Halloween,... (more)

Myspace: outer space, out of place, or in taste?

By maceo manhattan, published on Nov 20, 2006

Fox interactive media made headlines a year ago when it announced its half a billion dollar purchase of Myspace. Industry analyst estimate that there investment has doubled if not tripled thanks to aggressive marketing leading to more corporate sponsorship and a base of members that exceeds 125 million. Having been a member on and off for two years now, I constantly question my motives and the motives of Fox. Is Myspace truly your myspace or is it your space? Opening the Myspace webpage is like walking thru an x-rated virgin of Times Square in earlier morning hours. There are a plethora of dating... (more)

Iranian-American Inner Revolution

By maceo manhattan, published on Nov 20, 2006

Let me be brutally honest. I am not a big fan of the Iranian community. For starters being acknowledged by a fellow Iranian has more to do with what car you own than with being a good person. Do not get me wrong, I am very proud to be an Iranian American as well as an Iranian Jewish American. I must though note that there are a lot of stuck up Iranian Jewish kids out there (most of them Jewish) who have a lack of respect for authority and so forth. At the same time, one just needs to walk into an Lapd office to feel the "foreign like" feeling that emerges between the "citizen" and "officer".... (more)
