Journey, Memes, and Nick Cannon: to work with but my soul won't allow me to be in Nick Cannon business with corporations that attempt to frown on 1 hr Facebook Mentions freedom of speech, censor artists, and question cultural choices. Not to get too detailed but this isn't I write this from a deeply saddened and dolorous the first time executives have attempted to "put me in mindset. After days of deliberating over some my place" for so called unruly actions I will not stand extremely disappointing news that I was being for it. My moral principles w easily walk away from the millions of dollars they hang over my head. It's threatened with termination by Executives because of never been about the money for me, what is difficult a comedy special that was only intended to bring to walk away from is the fans, the people who love me communities closer together, I was to be punished for on the show. This hurts tremendously. Ifelt like I was a joke. This has weighed heavy on my spirit. It was apart of the fabric of our great nation every summer, brought to my attention by my "team" that NBC representing every culture, age, gender, and believed that I was in breach of contract because I demographic. Now for the rug to be pulled from underneath me and to be publicly reprimanded and had disparaged their brand. In my defense, I would ridiculed over a joke about my own race is completel ask how so? Or is this just another way to silence and wrong and I have to do something about it. I have control an outspoken voice who often battles the fought many battles in my career and have never been establishment. Recently many of my mentors have afraid to go up against the system. I have mulled over cautioned me that soon "The System" would come my process for days and felt it was best to once again speak my mind about an unjust infrastructure that down on me because was speaking too many truths treat talent like they own them. Maybe it was my and being to loud about it. I had no idea that it all mistake for signing the contract in the first place, in would hit so close to home. find myself in a dark which I will take full responsibility and have already place having to make a decision that l wish didn't taken action to restructure my own team of advisors have to, but as a man, an artist, and a voice for my now have to set out on a journey of freedom as an community I will not be silenced, controlled or treated artist. As l was quoted in a recent interview, "You can't fire a Boss and that is the essence that I possess. So ke a piece of property. There is no amount of money worth my dignity or my integrity. I have loved hosting wish AGT and NBC the best in its upcoming season but can not see myself returning. As of lately l have AMERICAS GOT TALENT for the last 8 seasons even questioned if ant to even be apart of an watching talented, brave, and courageous Americans industry who ultimately treats artists in this manner accomplish their dreams in front of millions has been Most of us don't realize that there are 6 major corporations that control 90 percent of media i nothing but a joy, and everyone has been a pleasure America and the amount of minority executives i dismal. With this being the case, true equality in our always be a "do as ndustry is impossible. There w sayu mentality that mirrors society's perception of and minorities, and only a few will stand up women against it. proudly stand as one of those few, and will gladly take on whatever repercussions that come ve art and entertainment too much to watch with it t be ruined by controlling corporations and big business. I believe It's our duty as artists to make a if it's one act at a difference and create change even time.

Poop, Roomba, and Rugs: love it with a caveat November 4, 201 By Previously my wife and l read the post about someone's Roomba trailing through dog poop. We laughed and didn't think another thing about it Let me tell you how yesterday went. While at a training for work l receive a text message from my 10 year daughter Dad, please call me the floors are dead.' I assumed that auto correct had gotten involved and was trying to figure out what it had corrected from. Also in the back of my mind l assumed our 14 year old lab Dalmatian mix had passed away, only to be found by our daughter. attempted to call my daughter with no answer and then called my wife. My wife had received the same text and had talked to our daughter Our lab is fine, our daughter was not. It appears that during our absence our 85 pound Band-dog mastiff had a bit of stomach distress. This in its self isn't a big deal as pet owner we understand that periodically "poop happens." What caused our very articulate 10 year daughter to become stymied was the fact that Rudy (our Roomba's name at 1415 hours started his tour of duty Roomba's name) at 1415 hours started his tour of duty Our daughter entered the house at around 1430. Rudy had been diligently cleaning our house for 15 minutes give or take. It seems that he had made a bee line towards the piles of dog stomach distress and then gleefully in a poop filled rampage "cleaned" the house. don't know if dog excrement somehow is a super boost to Roombas (much like speed boosts on video games or if Rudy somewhere deep in his programing has a code built in that basically states "if dog mess is found, crank all operations up to 11 But it appears that in a very small bit of time he had somehow traversed into the master bedroom, the hall way, kitchen and of course the living room As any Roomba owner knows they travel in spiral patterns, they bump into walls and furniture and they stop and spin looking for dust or hair. This built in patterning is truly effective in the elimination of pet hair, dust and small bits of debris. This patterning also seems to mimic the path a three year old hopped up on red bull and given an open full paint can, would have. If you keep the afore mentioned three year old in mind and substitute poop for paint that is what we are looking at. Roombas also have a small propeller like, brush attachment. This attachment sticks out in front of the Roomba. Its' original purpose appears to be reaching into corners where the round Roomba cannot reach. Unfortunately, this attachment also seems to have the ability to violate the known laws of physics by flinging poop in all directions, angles around corners, inside locked cabinets, and oddly straight up in the air to hit a 12 foot ceiling. So give that three year old a fan and let them swing it around as much as possible So back to our daughter, as she entered the house she was struck by a smell that could only be described as Cerebos's backyard after being fed Taco Bell and shock, she looked down, up and around and observed the poopy Pollock patterning on the walls. She immediately went further into the house, (where she got the strength of will will never know to find her phone to text her parents Before she could reach her phone, a poop flinging Rudy turned the corner and the chase was on. I don't know what happen in the time between our daughter being spotted by the poop flinging Rudy and the text message because she refuses to talk about it. She was able to stop the rampage by disabling Rudy and moving him to the backyard. After which she sent the text. I do have a theory on why she sent the "floors are dead" text. She being a normal 10 year girl has yet to witness anything close to the atrocity she saw. Given that she could only process the thought "the floors are dead" In hopes we would call and she could articulate the carnage Back to my wife, I didn't get all the above information until after the event. I was talking to my wife when she initially entered the house. All heard was the garage door open about 20 seconds of silence, a very soft "oh God" and then her telling me "it's bad, I'll call you back.' In her shock, she forgot to hang up the phone and for the next 5 or so minutes l could hear snippets of "How did it get there? Why, Oh man we might need to buy a rug, we just put in new floors, Oh God arrived home at around 1830 hours. Our house smelt of beach and cleaning fluid. My wife and daughter both freshly showered, both sitting down, both having only what can be described as a 1000 yard stare.

My wife did say three words, "He is outside tried to take Rudy apart as much as light and my stomach would allow. As it stands right now some of his parts are soaking in a solution of bleach and water. I am hoping through the next week l will be able to thoroughly clean his outsides and insides So if I was to rate the Roomba l would highly suggest it others. We love the little guy, he has cleaned our floors without compliant, been a source of entertainment, and reduces our work load with our pets do have to add one caveat. If you own pets only allow the Roomba to work while you are there. Or you will spend a week cleaning out at poop filled Roomba 1,404 of 1,445 people found this review helpful Helpful Not Helpful Another Roomba-pet-mess review.
