The Crossroads Moment: Fame and the deals made to attain it...
#1
Hmmm 
So by now we've all heard about people 'selling their soul' to be famous and all that kinda stuff...

It's called the "Crossroads Moment" and it's been talked about a lot by some people who were presented with the opportunity but turned it down in order to maintain their moral fortitude.

Here's a video about it by a well known YouTuber who isn't afraid to discuss these kind of topics:



I've talked about this a little bit in some other threads, which I'll quote below...

Never a free ride. If you don't stick to the agreements, they kill you. And sometimes it's creeper... they don't do it for years. But they always eventually do. Kinda like that one scene in V for Vendetta...

Like one day your time is just up and you either kill your own self, or they have somebody come and suicide you.

In my opinion, when one is offered "The Deal" and they accept, but with a few caveats, then there are a few options they probably have...

One is to simply be killed when they go against the set rules of the agreement. Two is that they may agree to "commit suicide" once their deal is up. Three is that they might just have their entire career ruined and be rejected by 'the system' as a discredited crazy person, who gets to keep their life.

Now let me just say this...

These are the situations involved in the OLD GUARD fame paradigm.

With the internet, anybody can be famous...

The rules have changed.

That's not to say that someday the forces of evil won't win out and the internet might be controlled to a point where they have their old rules set up on the new platform...

But for now, it's the wild west. 

Anyone can be famous on the internet, for good reason or for no reason at all.

This is the gateway to scot-free fame today. I pity the people who are still trying to get on TV, get into modeling, get into movies, or get into the music industry via the old guard paradigm...

It's astounding to me that people are still brainwashed into it and actually still see it as some type of gateway.

Alas, they do. People of all ages still do.

While they're dirtying their hands doing fucked up shit to be famous for nothing, those of us who master the internet are able to have whatever we want and answer to fucking NO ONE, make deals with fucking NO ONE, and keep our hands clean. 

Teehee! Sucks to be the old guard!

But...

Don't get me wrong. I'm sure there are a few old guard famous people out there who don't have terrible souls and bloody hands and whatnot.

They're few and far between, of that I'm certain.

I'm sure they exist...

The only question is...

Do they have a 'suicide countdown' hanging over their heads?

And if they do...

Is there a way for them to escape into the new paradigm?

I wonder who will be the brave ones to attempt such a feat.

Giving away your fortune (or most of it) is another method of avoiding the deal...

What she kept belongs to the kids who will have to make their own choices.

very true but usually they go for low hanging fruit, something priceless; your children or family-total mafia mindset.
Then you're fucked. I can imagine how many good people have been turned because they loved their family. 


Don't it feel good to not be famous? It's like they're slaves but people see them as gods because of marketing.

Also the president of Uruguay  gave away all his money earned from the government away and lived
out in the country on a modest farm.

"It's a common grumble that politicians' lifestyles are far removed from those of their electorate. Not so in Uruguay. Meet the president - who lives on a ramshackle farm and gives away most of his pay.

I wondered if Tony Bourdain pissed off the wrong people. He was always jabbing at super powerful people on Twitter. Those in power don't care if us peons run our mouths. But when you have a large audience and can't keep your mouth shut, they tend to shut it for you. Him and that Kate Spade both died in very similar ways.
