Time To Spin and Win

my first question. What does Rocky Carroll, “Leon,” Director, NCIS, Matt Lauer, Stephen A. Smith and Paula Creamer have in common? Hairstyle? Tanning secret? Nope. Amount of scratch in their bank account? I am weary now. You do not know? Ahhh, and you were so close. The answer is SHOES. That is right. Shoes. Not just any shoes. Not those off-the-rack shoes, but shoes (like Rocky Carroll) wears that are so valuable that they cost more than my home! Real shoes here in America. Now The Godfather of Soul, James Brown, should be shimmying and shaking all over our marble floor as the soundtrack blares, “Living in Amer—i—ca, I, I . . .” Brown made a few truckloads of scratch from Sly Stallone/s wise decision to use Brown’s song on Rocky III or IV, one of the Rocky films. Or was it, John Rambo? Fact is, when I think too much, get dizzy and am no good for the rest of my shrimp and chicken take-out dinner.

Things get convoluted some times. Even our lives can become convoluted. But there is one place, one safe, special place where minds are clear and promises are kept from one night until the morning. That place is when a guy and girl have fallen in love underneath a full June moon while they sit lazily underneath a thick willow tree limb. Underneath the willow limb, I believe that the late Sadam Hussein himself if her were to stroll by the couple holding a Russian-made A-47 and ready to shoot every livign thing he sees, Saddam baby would stand no chance of wrecking this couple’s new-found love. By the way, the lucky guy the male part of this couple was seen wearing a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo’s that run a rural redneck like me to the tune of $12,000.00. Just get on the net and see if I am telling you a big one.

In my 65 years of living, that God my maker has loved me a lot to see me get to this age, I have never saw a pair of shoes that cost more than a decent used cars. Just drive to my hometown, Hamilton, Ala., and look-up any of our car lots and your mouth will be agape when you realize that I am right. $12,000.00-dollar cars everywhere—Buicks, compact Chevies, and a few Sellica’s thrown in to dress-up the worn-down car lot to make it look decent. This is a sad thing for what used to be a prosperous country as ours. I guess it was like most of things, a passing piece of time that just sailed from our sight

As For Mega-Actor, George Clooney

he proudly-wears George Cleverley shoes that cost him about $750 bucks, tax not inlcuded. Now here stalks a controversy that has been lurking behind the phrases in this piece, so does Clooney actually spend scratch on the Cleverley shoes or do the shoe merchants comp him each time that he wants to do another Oceans 22 or something and by the Cleverley shoe folks comping him with luxurious shoes they get free advertising on Clooney’s feet when he goes out to a free dinner which is also comped, and these adoring female fans instantly-stop, shake his hand and ask . . .

“sayyyy, Mr. Clooney, are those George Cleverley shoes that you are wearing?”

Clooney gives them that half-smile, shakes his head and replies, “uhhh, now, girls, uhhh, sure. These are Cleverley’s and they , uhhh, hardly cost me anything!” and bumbles away. Then he he gets away from the earshot of those adoring female fans, he mumbles, “works every uhhhhh, time—me wering the George Cleverley’s, Maybe I need to, uhhhh, do some Duluth Trading men’s underwear. . .if these folks balk at comping me for the underwear, all I need to do is look a certain way and they will know who I am and how important that I am, and could buy the nation of Italy if I wanted to, uhhhh, guess I will do another Oceans film without Brad, uhhh, yeeahh.”

We mortals, especially those who are male and 65-years-old, with a sick, struggling body, to be as wise are Cleverley’s and they , uhhh, hardly cost me anything!” and bumbles away. Then he he gets away from the earshot of those adoring female fans, he mumbles, “works every uhhhhh, time—me wering the George Cleverley’s, Maybe I need to, uhhhh, do some Duluth Trading men’s underwear. . .if these folks balk at comping me for the underwear, all I need to do is look a certain way and they will know who I am and how important that I am, and could buy the nation of Italy if I wanted to, uhhhh, guess I will do another Oceans film without Brad, uhhh, yeeahh.”

We mortals, especially those who are male and 65-years-old, with a sick, struggling body, to be as wise as serpents, yet gentle as doves, and instantly-realize what really goes on behind the lives of George Clooney and his George Cleverley shoes that men of his caliber wear to lucrative eaterries or maybe why Brad Pitt does not want to do anymore Oceans films. Just innocent, uncaring questions that we love to ask just to get a conversation birthed.Then another question that has rough hands begs to ask what brand of shoes does Kevin Costner wear? And this one, you might be shocked to know. Costner wears Justin boots with a Men’s Dutton Style and they (probably) cost him at $359,00 a pair. You know something? That term is so stupid, “a pair,” that it violates the English language. Who wears only one shoe? Why not just say, $56.00 for shoes. I understood that so fast that the speed of light came in second.as serpents, yet gentle as doves, and instantly-realize what really goes on behind the lives of George Clooney gives them that half-smile, shakes his head and replies, “uhhh, now, girls, uhhh, sure. These

Things have a sneaky way of changing during those humid summer nights long about mid-July, but these changes cannot keep a hot second to the changes that go with men’s shoes. Fast and sure is the best way to describe these sleek, shiny shoes worn by the Elite Men of our nation, and the world for that matter. But we can all agree that there is one change that we will never see: Al Pacino strolling down the Red Carpet wearing a designer-tux and tennis shoes. Maybe a few of his fans love him to much that they do not mind such shoes, but I do. I really mind it when a celebrity such as Pacino resorts to not caring what goes on his feet, well, with that sign, our nation and show business is facing big trouble.

Do You Watch Late-Night Talk Shows

those with guests who come on to sell their current book? I do not. When the “King of Late-Night TV” retired, I retired as well. The reason why is easy to understand. Johnny Carson will NEVER be matched in serving as the emcee of a late-night talk show or those daytime shows that are geared for just selling those cheap baubles and rings that are imported from somewhere in another part of the world.

Of all of the endless line of celebrities, both common and shiny, I can tell you that my favorite part of the show was when “Ol’ Blue Eyes,” Frank Sinatra, who only came on the Tonight Show (when Johnny Carson ran the show) would show-up wearing the most-expensive tuxedo and matching designer black leather pattern shoes, Sinatra would always let his left foot dangle left and right so much so that I though that this foot action was part of his act.

Maybe so. Maybe not. All I know is that I learned to appreciate his shoes, how shiny they were how they shined like new full-length mirrors installed only in the top floor of those such as: Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric and Clint Eastwood. Of course, I am not one to cast stones first, these stars earned their place in the spotlight as well as in front of their specially-made mirrors. But these lavish mirrors could not compete with Sinatra’s shiny shoes, which by the way, would have made a fantastic song title and verses. Sinatra could have sung it in his sleep and sell a few million copies with lttle or no effort.

Clooney and his George Cleverley shoes that men of his caliber wear to lucrative eaterries or maybe why Brad Pitt does not want to do anymore Oceans films. Just innocent, uncaring questions that we love to ask just to get a conversation birthed. But if you are a George Clooney fan, you already know that Clooney does not go in for small talk. Not even to his equals, if one runs into him at a very important cocktail party. But all these higher-up’s might receive is a half smile, a nod, a twist-of-the-head to either the right or left, and a quick walk away

Another interesting thing that I love about George Clooney and his George Cleverley shoes is that when he is sitting around chatting with other high-end, high-test celebrities who are in his upper league of popularity, fame, and fortune and the topic of their non-stop chatting is how Clooney and these rich, powerful, classy friends love to talk to each other about other rich and famous buddies and pals. Of course they all wear Clooney’s favorite shoes: George Leverly and even as Clooney is standing around and sometimes leans on his feet one at a time, you can hear his ankle bones crack and that is natural due to all of the tough acting that he has done over the years. So if you in the presence of George Clooney and hear a small crack a sound like the sound of firewood being chopped, so not worry. It just his George Cleverley shoes and ankles.

And since we are talking about George Clooney’s foot area, I will tell you that Clooney does not wear Argile socks of any form or fashion. He chooses to wear those dark blue or black nylon socks hat reach from his feet to past his knees. To him, I think that it just looks better and will not have that fashion worry about is pants being too short as fashion manufacturers will do when they have partied he night before, but not to worry. George Clooney does not put up with pants that are too short. I know that a faux pa like this would cause Clooney to lose his temper and say ugly things to Brad Pitt. Did you also know that Pitt does not wear George Cleverly dress shoes like George Clooney? Do not read anything in this sentence, I am only sharing an interesting fact with you.

You Should Mortgage Your Home

and take your wife or husband and fly to Italy, George Clooney\s favorite home away from home. Clooney, of course, married large. His wife’s name is Amal Clooney (née Alamuddin; Arabic: أمل علم الدين‎; born 3 February 1978) is a Lebanese-British barrister at Doughty Street Chambers, specialising in international law and human rights. Wouldn’t you know it? She specializes in world-wide laws and human rights, but what about animal rights? Now, laying down all humor, this fizzles me. Ms. Clooney could be a master of any college course, but not animal rights? This chaps my thighs. I will not lie. This is also very sorry of Amal.

If you follow Clooney while he is with Amal or not, when he walks to one of the numerous outside cafe’s, both members of this modern-day Power Couple are always dressed in the finest designer casual wear that their money can buy. Or should I say “comped?” This would make more sense. Who ever heard of George and Amal Clooney ever, and I mean, ever reaching to get their credit card to pay for anything that they wanted to buy? Let me answer that. No one. I would go as far, since we are talking about comping, I would bet that the Clooney’s also get their hundreds of designer shoes “comped,”and there is a sensible reason for this: any company, no matter what is being sold, should be able to “comp” the well-to-do because this simple gesture creates money and customers.

A vacationing couple from St. Paul, Minnesota is walking down the sidewalk looking at the sights when the wife, “Jance Parker,” says in an excited tone to her husband of 33 years, “John William Parker,” “hey, John! Do you see that store? The one there that is supposed to “comp” their famous customers. Reckon they will?”

To which husband “John” (who is very disgusted), “What? Now Jaice, you have read too many Hollywood Gossip magazines. Wake up and smell the roses! We ain’t nobody famous and we would have to pay our hard-earned retirement money if we want to buy us a pair of matching oversalls.”

So the firm lesson about this brief conversation teaches us that we the commoners, cannot, will not, and should not expect merchants in any town anywhere in the world to “comp” the likes of us, the commoners.

Before I Disappear

just let me share this last observation about men and their expensive designer shoes. Let’s face a cold, true reality that affects the Clooney’s, Costner’s, Pitt’s, and Smith’s. These celebrities are the Elite Personalities while the newscaster, Katie Couric and Clint Eastwood live a little below the Popularity Gauge and life for them is normal and quiet.

And did you know, take George and Amal Clooney for instance, that when these two are on a two-week vacation in Italy, their favorite city in the world, they have to be careful about what they eat, say, and the clothes and shoes that they wear. I bet that you did not know it was this way for these two Elite Personalities, did you? Well, let’s continue forward and learn a little bit more.

The Clooney’s love to dine in a bistro, a lovable, quaint and busy outdoor restaurant. But you couldn’t tell it from how George and Amal present themselves in pubBoth are adorned in designer robes that one of the wealthy oil sheik’s “comped” the twp as a gesture of friendship to get George and Amal to visit with this powerful dignitary and discuss filming their next movie: “Rum and Rummer,” a story about two men who love to drink—everywhere they go, work, friends’ homes and sometimes in public transportation areas. The police show compassion on them because the cops know that the two drunks are not bad people and win the hearts of everyone around them. At the film’s end, the two are talking to a very nice alcohol minister who has cured the two, “Danny Rum” and “Larry Rummer,” who now have (with the help of a rich aunt) bought a busy night club and while the two do not drink, they rake in the cash. This comedy mixed with a light drama was written, directed and produced by George Clooney. The same production crew that filmed the Oceans film, is doing this one for George. Early viewings from New York, Paris and Los Angeles have all said that the film is headed for Oscar.

But the main idea about the Clooney’s dining in their favorite bisro is about the neat way that the Clooney’s have disguised themselves in order to not get run-over by the hordes of loving fans who want autographs, getting to touch the famous duo, and having their photo taken with George and Amal, all because they have worked very hard to achieve stardom, or should I say, super stardom? At any rate, George and Amal know how to receive and give their friendship to thousands of folks that hail from Italy to Russia, Germany, to most points in the United States.

George is dressed in their typical oil sheik disguise—RayBan sunglasses; robe, turban, and his suer-expensive George Clevrley dress shoes in a sharp black color. But due to the fans all clamourng on the ground to see and touch his shoes, he keeps his feet hidden underneath the table to keep the couple safe from the crowds. Oh, and George sometimes opts to wear a gray beard to complete his sheik disguise.

Did I just say that George and Amal achieved this gigantic-amount of stardom due to their film and Broadway theater work? Sure. But the main reason that George came to fame the quickest was him always wearing those sharp George Cleverley shoes.
