‘They’

Posted by ebonywood on January 9, 2009

Who are ‘They’? Why are ’They’ always to blame?   

I find myself doing it all the time. I hear other people doing it all the time.

‘They’ did it to us?’

‘They wanna keep us down, so we won’t know the truth’

‘They’ don’t care about us decent, law abiding citizens. ‘They’ just walk all over us.

‘We won’t get nowhere because ‘They’ have a glass ceiling there.

 

They know what they’re doing.   Who’s ‘They’?

 

I think I’ve just decided I hate the word ‘They’ more than the other word I used to moan about. Yeah, I know.  I still haven’t told you why the Dictionary has the definition of that word all wrong. We’ll get there.

 

Try a ‘ting, right.  The next time the word ‘They’ is said without a proper reference point in your conversation, break it down! Put pressure on the word, reveal what’s behind it. And I bet you’ll start finding more solutions rather than creating more problems.

 

I should be a f***ing Life Doctor. And take my own advice. Anyway, I was thinking –

 

They should get together, twenty, thirty maybe forty of them, in a hall or a large conference room. And under the heading of  ‘Moving Forward’, the chosen chair person should say, Right, from now on, 20% out of every ticket that is sold to members, customers, sponsors, coming through our doors, will be put into an account. It don’t matter which Bank it is. It could be Natty West, or anyone of them. But after the Banks chosen, the only valid question they should then come up with is, “what we gonna do with all this money?”

Then they should say, “We’ll take all this money and pay something towards a bright boy or girl’s school fees, allocate a family and pay off all their debts (if they believe they have the ability to maintain good credit and thrive). Find a package deal and send a group of  ‘knife and gun crime youths’ around the world for a while…….

 

…..Wait, wait, wait! Just hold on Ebonywood. Who are ‘They’?

 

‘They’ are the DJ’s, the respected Community Radio Stations, The Club Owners and Entertainment Promoters.

 ‘They’ know who they are……

How big is your potential? Part 3

Posted by ebonywood on January 4, 2009

Remember what I said about the Pound? Remember what I said about actions speaking louder than words? Well here’s the real deal for Ebonywood Studio Productions and the mission to serve our friends and families.

 

First, I want to ask you, do you want a Feature Film Production Company, making big commercial films that represent you? 

 

Secondly, do you want to see more images and stories, for longer periods of screen time that reflect your life/existence? 

 

Would you want to be a part of a huge, diverse and powerful organisation that is run/owned by Black British people, that excludes no-one?

 

By the way, when you watch our film Jingle Blues Jingle Bells, tell us if you think the cast is fairly balanced, even though all the leading characters are Black.

 

Trust me. If we can prove there is demand, then your colour will and can command!

 

We know ‘Jingle Blues Jingle Bells’ is a seasonal film. But, it is a historical move, which we should all be a part of. It will take continuity and consistency to ensure the company’s success.

 

We need you to focus your energies (£), here to back and support our move smoothly into our next feature film.

 

By buying a copy of Jingle Blues Jingle Bells, your  ‘symbol of support’, will be doing two things…………..

 

My Mother’s just called, she really needs my help. I’ll back as soon as I can. Please don’t go too far away. This is very important.

How big is your potential?

Posted by ebonywood on December 30, 2008

The largest mountain in the world

The largest mountain in the world

After I asked the question about God and his Son, a fish bone got stuck in my throat. It could’ve killed me. My wife said, “Good!” What was that about?

The fact that I asked that kind of question? Or the fact that I was eating too fast?

There is nothing wrong with asking questions. No matter what it’s about? Only you set the boundaries to your curiosity. In fact, the bigger the question is the bigger your potential. And here is a question I have asked myself continually, ever since I heard it……

“If the Almighty is the Almighty and nothing is impossible for Thy power, can the Almighty then create a Rock that the Almighty cannot lift?”

I’ll say it again for clarity, and not because I think you’re stupid.

“If the Almighty is the Almighty and nothing is impossible for Thy Power, can the Almighty then create a Rock that the Almighty cannot lift?”

This is all leading somewhere. To where actions speak louder than words, because I believe in SOLUTIONS and not PROBLEMS. So for that very reason alone, I will give you a small gift. The answer to the question on New Years Day.

I like a bit of suspense.   Do you?
