Starlight is an evil genius whose neither evil nor dominating the world. But he's a good Dad who supports his family working from home.

Celebrity Fame of Celebrity Frames

Something about sunglasses and distinct frames define some celebrities' images. Without the ubiquitous accessory, would their image suffer?

Some are lost without their glasses. Powerless and without a clue.

Howard Stern

The song "Irish Eyes are Smiling" was, I'm quite sure, not written about this man. I think he is brilliant, in fact so much so that he's often dealing business and needs to have his poker face, and his poker shades on to avoid any obvious "tells". You don't sign big contracts to get paid for talking like him without something really special. Somehow he and other Radio Stars like Rush Limbaugh avoid letting on that mostly they are freewheeling and ad-libbing while "in character", They make too much money to be honest- most of what they're passionately talking about is just BS to them (most of the time). I don't know how they can do it for so long, and so many people eat it up. I'm not criticizing, it's actually a compliment. They are like musicians who are improvising jazz for hours and hours each day. Somehow they appear to be coming up with new riffs and don't get recognized when repeating themes and ideas ad-nauseum.

Without glasses. I personally hate these types of pictures, where the photographer asks you to look down and be contemplative. It is as if they want you to appear overcome with trepidation. Usually in engagement photos.

I'm a high-functioning sociopath. I wear glasses because if you stare into my eyes you will see I'm staring deep into your soul, and within seconds I have you figured out. Get ready to be manipulated!

Power Shades

1953 - big shots such as the Shah Reza of Iran turn up wearing sunglasses whilst conducting important business. Subordinates scoff. Envious of how cool he looks in shades, secret operatives overthrow him for that very reason. Or not.

This little interview snippet with Legendary Jerry Seinfeld is pretty good. Sorry for the screenshot Jerry! The computer chose it automatically...

What fun is life if you're not making jokes all the time.

Here you see two multi-millionaire legends bemoaning how hard it is to be funny after you've "made it". Not very motivational for a rising humorist star (embellishment added) such as myself.

I'm totally 100% with him that he is always seeing the material because he wants to, whether it is publicly appreciated or not. Way to go Mr. Seinfeld, keep it up for your sake, and share it like I'm doing here on Hubpages for our sake! We'd love to hear it! OK, back on topic now.

'lil John

King of Crunk. Not my style, but hey, he's not asking me. The guy is a genius in his own right. I've got tremendous respect for his business and artistic acumen. I found a video of his, and am really not surprised to be impressed.

I won't say I like it, that wouldn't be good for 'lil John. So I'll say this- I hate it 'lil John. I hate your catchy tune, and I hate your videos, I hate your clear sense of humor. I'm not going to snap my fingers, nor do my step. I do have a step though. Most people haven't seen it. It's pretty good, such a rare occasion for me to demonstrate it. My crew just doesn't request me to do it, but they are missing out big time, because it's awesome.

Good choices after school

I learned to appreciate and respect 'lil John as I watched him scrap and win over and over again on the "Celebrity Apprentice" (NBC). He is one very smart dude, this King of Crunk.

Teenagers think they are smarter than their elders. They wonder why we laugh at the mere mention of such a ridiculous notion. Slash Snowboarder, left, and 'lil John, right, would agree today.

1961, actually a huge giant, JFK is on board with going to the moon and looking cool wearing shades. Here he plays the cool guy showing other giants which way the tiny human rocket will go to the moon. "Basically, up there, guys, real high up."

Imagine JFK today wearing "Google Glasses" (TM). Being a huge giant, you see what your 46 inch LED screen would look like mounted on his glasses.

Believe me, you look fly wearing these glasses. He is already absorbed into the images displayed. Watch out when he drives.

Here's what the guy above will be watching on his Google Glasses as he teaches Literature to your children in public school. I predict it now, it will happen later. Catch him doing it and he will be punished by being suspended, WITH PAY!
