Joey L. Dowdy’s “THE CASTING COUCH!”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 16, 2015 by JJgroove01

A Good Lay in The Hay, Is That Really The Hollywood Way? There is one major mistake I see so many people make coming to Hollywood? What is it? They come unprepared. There is no doubt they arrive with a dream, which is great. However, most have no real strategy for how they’ll turn that dream into a reality.  So they fall prey to attaching their belief system to age old theories. Like, some believe they’ll make it’s simply by getting a lucky break. While others think, it’s all about being at the right place at the right time. Some even think it’s all in who you know. Then there are those who believe you can skip go, head straight to the casting couch, and catch the green light by sleeping with the right producer.

Wait, don’t try to pretend like you haven’t heard that before. Nonetheless, it’s safe to say, sure, all these sound feasible. But the question is, are they sufficient enough to get you to where you want to go? I would say, “Most Definitely Not!” Yet, listed below are four tips I think will.  In fact, if applied, you shall stand out in the crowd. So Get Ready, Set, Groove!

TIP #1. Prepare! *I don’t believe in luck. Yet I do know that opportunity is very much so attracted to those who’ve done the prep work; and are ready to accept what it has to offer.

TIP #2. Deliver The Goods! * I think if you’ve got the goods ( skills, looks, talent & personality) you will mostly, at some point in your life, end up being in the right place at the appointed time.

TIP #3. Know This: Sooner or Later Things Will Happen! *There’s no doubt in my mind that you’ll get to know some important people if you do this, get really good at what you do. Then things will happen just like the late great poet Maya Angelou said.  She quotes, “Do the thing you love to do; and do them so well that others won’t be able to take their eyes off you. And all other tangible things will come as a result.” 

TIP #4 Don’t Play It Cheap! *So that means you really don’t need to spend your precious time and energy trying to short-cut your way to success by lounging out on the casting couch. I mean why settle for playing it cheap when you have  talent, and I’m assuming you do? Then be the real deal, and let them shine. Know that “a good lay in the hay isn’t what will lead The way” to your Hollywood, Bollywood, or even Dollywood dreams. Groove ON….http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B00LF3DA3U

 Their main objective is to scope and try to psych out their competition. Their strategy is to approach select people who they feel could possibly be a threat to them and then put a little nervous fear, and/ or intimidation, under their feet. Or even perhaps scare them away so that they, the predators, stand a better chance of getting the job. Or so they think. Does it work? I would say, hmmm, sometimes. How does it work? Check this out. They often go up to the people they’ve selected…….What happens next will amaze you, Read ON…http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B00LF3DA3U

Joey L. Dowdy’s “SPINNING OUT OF CONTROL!”

THINK. SPEAK. REACT!

  A Sneak Peek Excerpt From Get Up & Groove Book 1

 Step Into Greatness! Perform!

EXERCISE yOUR MINd!

“It made the wheels of my mind spin out of control every time it aired.

It was something that happened later during my early teen years. It was a reaction I had to a public service announcement or slogan that I heard on the radio, entitled “A mind is a terrible thing to waste” supporting the United Negro College Fund. Somehow hearing this message had a dramatic effect on me. How so? It captured my attention, and made the wheels of my mind spin out of control every time it aired. Why was this? Well, that’s the ironic part. I felt their message was totally inappropriate, demeaning, and a bit over the top. Please, let me explain. For one, I couldn’t believe they used words in it like “terrible” and “waste.” I thought to myself, “How dare they be so judgmental, bold, and harsh.”

For instance, I thought the judgmental part was their assuming this would happen to every kid. Also, I totally disliked them using the word “terrible” because it sounded so bold and brass. And I couldn’t believe they had THE NERVE to use the word “waste.” Why? It bugged me because it’s something I constantly heard my parents say I should never do. So as you can see, that commercial totally didn’t fly with me. In fact, it annoyingly got under my skin. Each time I heard it, it gave me a creepy feeling, as well as a deep sense of conviction. It felt like the UNCF was spying on me. It seemed as though they knew something about me that I didn’t. And boy, I was starting to feel the discomfort through every fiber of my being. It was like their commercial was purposely being directed towards me. However, here’s the trick: let the truth be told, it was directed towards me.
