Topic: Selling Out??
Message: Posted by: Rupert Bair (Nov 8, 2007 10:33AM)
My name is Matt Colman, I push boundaries professionally.

Every audition I've ever done in my life I've either got it or I've won. I've never been unsuccessful in an audition.

For more of a joke when my agent sent me an application form for the latest big brother with rising talent from the uk my ego took over and gave every question in the form a cynical, humored or random reply.

The next day I get a phone call saying how impressed they where with my application (!)

They wanted to let me know they where going to probably short list me for the auditions.

The next few days I wasn't sure if I really wanted to do it...

Theres pros and cons and a nice amount of cash to be won at the end.

But is it selling your soul?

What if I didn't have as much control as I needed to be the person I am?

They contacted me earlier and I let them down.

It would be a bit like tedious trying to invent "improved" material for 2 weeks. There might get to the point where I couldn't be funny and I'd be exposed for the fraud I am.

TV land can interpret you differently with choice editing, they can manipulate what the viewers see...it could of been a career ruiner!

Then I think...maybe a lot of good could of come from it....

No, it's more like selling your badonkadonk. Which all of us do, eventually. It's just a question of price and maintaining your dignity while you're doing it.

If I were you, and I got the call, I'd do it. And I'd spew some occasional Haiku dedicated to my friend Jeff, and I'd confuse everyone in the container by saying, "That was Josh #2, not Josh #1, you silly cow! And I'm an expert on cows. So spank me." Or something like that. Feel free to steal my lines, if you want.

Seriously: I don't know how young you are, but if you are under 30, do it, and think about the consequences later. Maintaining dignity might be difficult (leave your sponge balls at home: the cameras see EVERYTHING), but not impossible.

Prostitution only hurts the victim.

Don't be a victim.

Be Matt, Matt Colmann. Badonkadonk Matt Colmann.

I've got a new video project that should be ready by xmas! If its any good I'll be sending it off to tv land. I think that will be better for me.

I was thinking about two Germans called the frenches who like bread...what do you think?

Johnathan...getting paid I don't believe is selling out, when what you are producing garbage because people above you need you to i.e low forms of entertainment that is diluted and not up to your usual standard...then I believe I'd be selling out...what I think it would come to being on reality t.v...

I'm having a crisis. I spelled Matt Colman with two N's instead of one.

I'm going to go kill myself now.

Right now I'm seeing a dark tunnel. Dark, dark, dark...and at the end of the tunnel I'm seeing...

Orange Juice....

Doesn't make any sense.

Your half dead, which is all we really need to be able to touch you.

WARNING: This is the most sensible post I will ever make on these forums...You have been warned.

I'm quite glad you didn't go for it in the end Matt, I know you would have give it your best to really screw the program up, but I reckon people have been there to do that before. The power of the censor makes them look like attention seeking puppy maulers and the 'container' comes out on top.

You work hard at what you do, I'd rather see you spend 20 years in the shadows than spend 15 minutes prostituting yourself on national TV.

Nice Haiku Jeff!!

This is thefirst thread I have posted to without reading ANY of the above posts. So...am I right?
Message: Posted by: Corona Smith (Nov 8, 2007 03:21PM)
That depends if you read any of the below posts.


Matt, I think Fauna Gob is probably right. You are young, handsome, talented, knowledgeable about the Cow terrorist threat, first try Rich, then try infamous.

Spanish Big Bother contestants went all anarchic and communist, everyone else toad the line.

Awh, that was beautiful Corona =) I'm buying you the annotated Clamant Merrill cow party guide for xmas.
Message: Posted by: rossmacrae (Nov 8, 2007 04:10PM)
Every darned post above (well, most of them) makes sense. I think youy should be guided, in particular, by the one that advised:

"Badonkadonk Demons
I've got a jar of dirt
This is Haiku"

But seriously, I think you dodged a bullet. If the show you mentioned was anything like the ones that have recently become popular in the U.S., you would have had to sign a contract making you (in effect) the indentured servant of the producers for the remainder of your career.

Matt, you should have done it. If it turned out to be a bust ... such is life.
Plus, you're too young to be a sell out. ;)

Yes, but it's easier to start my own cult this way.

There's no problem: she's still got one leg. I've heard Paul has the ashes of the other one in a locket he wears on his neck.
