Living in Hollywood means that cinematically we’re either cultured in that Black Swan ballet way this Oscars season. Or, we’re debating about governments’ shifting power via ‘more fun’ corporate agencies and forms (Facebook) acting as government for ‘whoever,’ in The Social Network‘s popularity with Academy voters this year. Such questions are being talked about with many young people in Hollywood, in that exact same manner. It is their banter at Cafes.

No one really understands why James Franco, is even hosting the Oscars this year – let alone even being nominated in the best actor section. That’s got everyone double scratching their heads, like – “whose he screwing?” is what the kids are wondering out loud today. Don’t worry, no one wants to really know. But they like James overall. He’s seen as a bit of a pawn. Sometimes funny in this role too.

Teens and twenty-somethings are always so honest. Perhaps the most critical Hollywood film audience of all.

Thankfully, Hollywood is also about light-hearted fun, minus dark themed wickedness in film. It’s almost like when the global economy lights were turned down to dim, politicians have been told that by encouraging more spooky film themes and twisted pop culture, that this will make politicians shine brighter as angelic heroes of the people. Please! It’s not working.

To escape all that, thankfully, we have the comedy genre.

Just a genre where to be too deep, too political, too clever is considered a yawn, because all movie goers want, is a good laugh. Comedy provides that.

While blogging yesterday, a total stranger said to me, “I want to be your friend forever, like in my favorite movie Grown Ups.” I thought that was one of the best offers of friendship I’d ever heard. Said in the spirit of this film, their humor made me laugh. As the film is now on Blue Ray dvd, let’s revisit its story line then:

“Just because you grow older doesn’t mean you have to grow up! Comedy superstars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider are at their hilarious and outrageous best playing childhood friends who once played in the same basketball team who reunite one holiday weekend to relive the good old days. It doesn’t matter that these five guys are now respectable businessmen, husbands and fathers. Once they get back together, nothing is going to stop these kids-at-heart from having the time of their adult lives in this hilarious and heartwarming film that proves men will be boys from the people who brought you Click.”

One must always take advice from a Kevin. So alright then, I have my ears on. Let’s lighten up a little, get funnier and remember to laugh our no-no’s off, because that’s what life should be about more, in the world. I don’t know if there’s more problems in the world for today’s youth to face and deal with on Facebook, or whether we’re now just more aware of any problem instantly in an internet mediated age. Sometimes we need to laugh too. Joy is strength. Let’s do it!

Be a reservoir via Hollywood of life for kids. To put it bluntly, 2 million kids die each year because clean drinking water is what 1/6th of the world still need.

Let’s flow. Thanks people.

New mother, Padma Lakshmi of Top Chef and David Spade were spotted in the same car last night.

Spice and humor in a show biz friendship. Not a bad combo.
