Glazer: The Fame Game, How to Play it to Win!

Most people dream of becoming famous…

Maybe not on the national or global stage, but at least in their community, at work or school. I think most of us daydream about being “on top,” the quarterback on the field in the Super Bowl. The pretty face on the cover of People magazine. The star of our own TV series or big movie. The lawyer always on CNN. Maybe even the President of The United States.

And for a chosen few who work hard, have some major luck, are born with the skill or talent to get there –

    Read Becker’s “Denial of Death”.

    Perfect occidental explanation of motivation. Freud said all motivation is from sex, Becker, said death, and explains it really well. Fame, is that striving. In Henry the 5th, Shakespeare has Henry, at prayer, beg god before the battle (Agincourt) “…please god, all things stay, for me.” Nothing stays, there is only nothing and nothing is change. More fear, more effort. Becker died right after he wrote the book. There is some irony.

    Didn’t mean to get too boring, but for me, the only glimpse of sanity, insight and understanding and they are fucking far and few between for me, is in Oriental beliefs that go back 7500 years.

    If you see the buddha, kill him.

    Your gonna hate me for ramblin on, but you kinda brought it up. I apologize–but…

    I think Hemmingway killed himself because of the very things you wrote about today, not per se, just the idea. The hoplessness. An indiffernt god if he even exists.

    In “A Farewell To Arms” the protaginist sits in front of a fire, adn watches ants crawl on a peice of wood that is gradually being engulfed by flame. The guy has water in a tin cup he is NOT drinking. He thinks he could put the fire out but doesn’t just sits there. He doesn’t hate the ants, he just doesn’t care. The ants die.

    Hemingway blew his brains out. Couldn’t take it. He wanted, like we all do, for …”all things to stay, for me.”

    Sorry, you started it, I am going to work.

    One more thing Really sorry, Becker does not have a solution, or suggestions. His book is a perfect explanation of the mechanics of fear and result. The book just stops. Dead. Like him. Like us. stops. weird…

    This drivel, from the column and from chuck, sounds like the idle meanderings of people with so little of importance going in their lives that they wonder why they need to be around anymore.

    Life isn’t about what you can feel for yourself or what things you can do that will be remembered after you are gone. Whether there is an afterlife or not, we are going to be nothing more than mmentary cogs in a life machine that is going to be running for perhaps millions of years from now. What can and should be measured as we go along is not what we can do to be remembered, but what can be do to keep the line of man’s movement through time always striving to reach upward. The ants died, but they maintained their pace because they had a task to do — regardless of their known ultimate fate.

    Sleep well…

    Thats just it. Obviously you have no need for a self examined life. That doesn’t mean that others don’t.

    chuck, just make sure you have the rope loosely tied around your nutbag in a self-releasing square-knot so after they find your carcass in the closet they’ll assume you had some higher purpose, like poetically taking your own life rather than just jerking off.

    I think Ptolemy was also the one who said you should be arrested if you cheat on your wife…or something similarly stupid

    One has to admire Stallone, for the fact he did Rocky 6 and Rambo 4 and they were both hits. Hollywood thought they were dumb ideas and he was too old. I think both did near l00 million worldwide and cost under 25 to do. Smart guy.

    BEAVIS: Shut up Ptolemy.

    PTOLEMY: I like to blow up lizards!

    BEAVIS: Shut the fuck up Ptolemy. Arn’t you supposed to be in school?

    God can’t believe I’m doing this. PaulKC, Glazer is a big name in the media in these parts. Like you I am not a fan. Reason, I believe he really is a John Dillinger/Jesse James. While they became legendary names, they were outlaws and crooks, Glazer seems to think thats o.k. I don’t. My kids shouldn’t. Christ are kids one day gonna be Glazer and whatever his partners name is, playing out back?

    You can’t say he’s nat kinda famous, he is. Doens’t make him right.

    I’ve seen Glazer asked for his autograph in bars, restaruants, book signings and even at the KC airport. He is kinda a well known guy, for a part time asshole. Kiddin Craig, I told you I thought you were alright. Besides I now have a fulltime boyfriend. So life is good.

    KCPaul guy, I had a not so high opinion of Craig Glazer a few years back. After hearing him on radio shows all the time and reading about him, I gave him the benefit of the doubt, bought his book, loved it. I am a former police officer. I must say this read his book, you can tell its true and from the heart. You can’t help pulling for him, he went through alot of crap, we all do, and was a pretty brave man. No I don’t want my kids, they are grown now, but a young kid to emulate him, but he is damn impressive. So I agree with the others, he is of note and a Kansas City historical figure.
