      With Halloween on its way, all of the spooky horror films are all the rage.  Movies like IT Chapter Two and Annabelle Comes Home are out in theaters, scaring audiences nationwide.  October is that time of the month for spookiness everywhere.

       And speaking of spookiness, there’s a provocative new documentary that is soon to be coming out later this month.  It’s about the horror and disturbing trends happening within college campuses around the country. This documentary is known as No Safe Spaces.

       No Safe Spaces stars comedian Adam Carolla and radio talk show host Dennis Prager (also creator of PragerU) as they travel the country talking to experts, both from the right and left wing, about free speech around college campuses.  The documentary will cover topics about safe spaces, free speech, college protests, comedians, and other ideas. Despite growing up from completely different backgrounds, both Dennis and Adam share the same concern for where the country is heading.  Some of the featured guests interviewed include Tim Allen, Ben Shapiro, Jordan Peterson, David Rubin, Van Jones, and many others.

       The film is set to hit theaters only in Arizona (both Phoenix and Scottsdale), but future dates and cities will be announced soon.  Either way, No Safe Spaces will be easily accessible nationwide.

       Halloween is just around the corner, so why not watch No Safe Spaces to get spooked by the mere insanity that is happening within college campuses.  It’s a major PR nightmare that is sure to have you chilled to the bones. Safe spaces, speaker protest, comedian cancellations, oh my!

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie


       Welcome back to MakeSandcastlesNotWar folks!  I took a bit of hiatus these past few weeks, what with work being busy and Columbus Day Weekend approaching.  Now that the long holiday weekend is over with, its time to get back to blogging.

        For the record, I binge-watched through a lot of great stuff on Netflix during my days off.  But one of the most anticipated films that I was looking forward to was El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.

       El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie was the sequel film that left off after the final episode of Breaking Bad.  It takes place right after Jesse Pinkman rides off from the cage he was held captive in.  Jesse Pinkman first rides over to Skinny Pete’s house to reconnect with him and Badger. He stays with them to refresh for a while.  After that, he meets up with various old friends to plan his escape from New Mexico.

       This sequel film was just absolutely amazing.  El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie tied up many loose ends between Jesse Pinkman and the other characters he worked with during Breaking Bad.  There are various flashbacks including some disturbing ones of when Pinkman was held captive.  Better yet, there is even one sequence when he meets up with Walter White (guest starring Brian Cranston, of course!).

       If you have seen all of Breaking Bad, then you definitely got to check out El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.  This film answers all of those burning questions you had after the last episode of the series.  I won’t give away the ending, but I will say this – it’s the ending that Jesse Pinkman deserved, driving off in that El Camino.

Customer Service PR Nightmare


Today’s post starts with this story (#Storytime) – I was heading over to the 7-11 about a week ago to grab some lighters.  While in there, I stood in line behind one other person.  There were idly chit-chatting on some random business, no real deal for me.  I was bit antsy waiting for the lighters, being that I had to get ready for an event later on.

After a few minutes I finally asked someone over to take my orders.  Once I got the lighters, the cashier rudely asked me if I needed anything else.  I swiftly replied with no and headed back to my place.

That ends my story.  With that, I can only say one thing folks – this is not a good sign.  We are dealing with a PR nightmare for the traditional business skill known as customer service.

Customer service has been on the decline these days.  Not only has the satisfaction level decreased, but even the need for human customer service is dropping as well.  We are replacing ambitions human beings with state-of-the-art robots that take orders through algorithms.

As a PR man myself, I have seen this type of bad customer service occur in all kinds of industries.  Restaurants, clothing stores, and even cannabis dispensaries performed some kind of bad customer service during my time there.

The obvious problem would be to place the heat on the person who gave bad customer service in the first place.  That person, whether it be restaurant server or bud tender, gave you bad service and therefore should live with the blame.  They are the ones at fault.

But doesn’t this seem all too obvious?  What about the actual training geared towards the customer service itself?  There is the part about actually learning customer service in the first place.

And just like that, the solution to our horrendous customer service PR nightmare is shifting the work on the actual training on customer service rather than the person.  Tweaking the training course on customer service will provide a better idea both for the employees and customers alike.

With that, we must all learn the skill of customer service.  If not, well, you’ll have a robot waiting to replace you.

Ryan Murphy really has been dominating the TV game this October.  American Horror Story: 1984 is already taking off well and The Politician was the first dip into Netflix.  Whether it be a streaming service or cable, Ryan Murphy has a lot of great series all around.

Interestingly enough, The Politician isn’t the only TV series Ryan Murphy in stores for Netflix.  He is also planning to release another TV series that centers around the glitz and glamour of Tinseltown.  This future project is known as Hollywood.

Hollywood will take viewers into the Golden Age of Tinseltown, showcasing stories from the 1940s.  Its about the young and optimistic world of Hollywood back when it was starting to take off.  The first story will center around Rock Hudson, who will be played by Jake Picking.  Some of the other cast include Darren Criss, David Corenswet, Jeremy Pope, Jim Parsons, Joe Mantello, Dylan McDermott, and Patti LuPone.  You can expect to see Hollywood when it releases on May 2020.

This was really exciting to hear.  While the premiere date is a half a year away, it is still exciting to hear of Ryan Murphy creating yet another series for Netflix.  The Politician was already amazing to watch and Hollywood will be just as amazing.  I already read about Rock Hudson’s life in All That Heaven Allows: A Biography of Rock Hudson by Mark Griffin (which I reviewed on here) and I’m looking forward to see this play out in the new series.

If you already binge-watched The Politician, then don’t worry – the glitz and glamour of Hollywood will be coming to Netflix next year.
