Talknology Tips for 12-29-2011: ‎"Find someone that isn't...

FROM A FACEBOOK FRIEND: Thursday, December 29, 2011

Talknology Tips: ‎"Find someone that isn't afraid to admit they miss you.

Someone that knows you're not perfect but treats you as if you are. Someone who couldn't imagine losing you.

Someone who gives their heart to you completely. Someone who says I love you and proves it.

Last but not least, find someone who wouldn't mind waking up to you in the morning, seeing your wrinkles and grey hair but still falls in love with you all over again..."

Bleakonomics: Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith's Top Term for 2011.

ASK RELEASES WORD OF THE YEAR: WOTY ®: Being a writer, I’ve found that there are not enough words created to cover the vast assortment of things that run though my mind. I’m sure it’s the same way for any other creative author. Therefore, in lieu of scouring the Dictionaries for ‘near misses,’ I have been creating new Terms for over 20 years now & placing them in my Stories, Press Releases & Correspondence. Now, as we near the Beginning of 2012 by closing out 2011, the Word that is most popular in is:


Which is derived from the word: Bleak + economics. By listening to all the major media broadcasts & seeing how so many People across the world are in a bleaker situation than they have ever been, this Term certainly fits the climate and culture of our Time. “Yes, it’s a good thing the year’s almost over. Putting this chapter to rest may improve our Fortunes in 2012. Let’s hope so.

Koopersmith (America's Premier Eventologist) advices Christmas' Date Change.

Hi Randi: I heard somewhere that Dec. 25 may not even be Christ's actual birthday date...and we have no way of really knowing. I think that after 365/366 days of 'messing up' and drinking/eating our way thru December, we need a clean slate to start it all over again, altho U can figure every day as a new beginning. What I think people should do is just set Xmas for the last Sunday of December -- that way they can party Fri nite thru Monday evening - straight thru, non-stop and it won't disrupt any week day plans or festivities. As 'America's Premier Eventologist' who has created over 1900 HOLIDATES TO CELEBRATE, that might not be too bad of any idea! Happy 2012 to you & yours, Randi! Cheers, ASK / Chicago - IL USA

ASK's 18TH Eco-Christmas® Day Celebraton: Dec 26, 2011. On the Count of 1: Shop till U drop.


Dateline: Monday, December 26, 2011

Oh, I’d be remiss if I didn’t post this as Today is the 18TH Eco-Christmas® Day Celebration – the real Day when Christmas Gift-Giving is celebrated. For you see, you commemorate the Spirituality of Christmas on December 25TH & you go out and buy gifts for your loved ones on the Day after (December 26) when the prices are lowest. After all, let us not forget that it’s the Spirit of Love, Understanding & Camaraderie that makes us humane – not a bright Red Ferrari sitting in the drive or a trip to the SoF: South of France. Those will only last so long, but if you must buy a Present for someone special, Today is the deemed Day in which to do so.

When this HOLIDATE ® was first fabricated in 1993 (as it takes 1 year to launch any good HOLIDATE TO CELEBRATE) the retail sales were never held before Christmas as they are today. With times being sluggish as they are, we’re looking at an entire NEW & DIFFERENT Eco-Christmas® Day, but the bottom line remains: Sales & Saving. It’s not only for the Frugal amongst us – it’s the new Way of Thinking, Preparing & Planning for the Future.

ECO-Christmas©1994: How to $ave BIG TIME for The Holidays by America's Premier Eventologist: ASK.

As posted on my BLOG:

ASK’s RECOLLECTIONS: Back in the early 1990s, I created a Seasonal Holidate called ECO-Christmas©1994 (whose theme was based on saving money and keeping with the Spirit of the Holiday – not to ‘GO commercial’ as so many people do, but to GIVE a gift; and ultimately enjoy the Day in the Company of those you love.

Afterwards, on December 26 – after U R done celebrating to go shopping – exercise and pick up some great Deals. However, within that 18 year span, the economy has changed radically as we all know. With people losing their homes, what can you buy – if you don’t have a roof over your head.

Life has been turned upside down for too many of us. What’s particularly interesting to note now is that Retail Stores are giving sizable – if not huge discounts before the Holiday arrives to entice shoppers and big spenders to spend all the more. Now, U can also shop online. Whereby back in 1994 when ECO-Christmas©1994 (meaning to economize on your Xmas Gifts) was launched – barely any retailer was on-line and if they were – mall shopping was ‘The Rage’ anyway. The Change we are experiencing now, as we approach December 26 - the 18TH year Celebration of ECO-Christmas will show that many of those shelves will be bare, but the regifting and returns will surely fill them back up!

I would guess that since I do participatein my own Holidates (after all somebody has to see if they run well), I have saved about $22,000 the last 18 year. That’s nice. That’s something U can take to the bank and ‘bank on….’ Happy Holidays to all my Dear Friends here on Facebook that have made my Year a wonder! You’re the Best!

Cheers, ASK – 5:53 PM CST – December 23, 2011

December 23, 2011: 20TH Year Anniversary of The Formation of CAC: Cartoonists Against Crime ©1991.

20TH Year Anniversary of The Formation of CAC: Cartoonists Against Crime ©1991

So where were you 20 years ago today? Any idea? If you weren’t born, then you may not recall. If you happen to be a person who ‘rates’ experiences in their Life(times) as I do, then the day may stand out. And this is why December 23 (1991) stands out for me:

Today, Friday, December 23, 2011 is a date that I may not have seen. That’s because 20 years ago today @ 6PM exactly, I was beat up, robbed & left-for-dead in the lobby of my apartment building – 2 days before Christmas in 1991. Twenty Years. That’s nearly 1/3 of my life. What a shame if it would have happened – that I would have succumbed at the hands of a ne’er do-well, croppy and sweat bee who then grabbed my black tote bag and made off – with not too much – since I’m Jewish & wasn’t carrying a single Christmas Present.

Being a Victor & not a Victim is one concept that I have always kept in mind since that Ordeal happened. One of the Creative & Positive Endeavors that came out of that Incident was that I created CARTOONISTS AGAINTS CRIME ©1991 whose Motto was: CAC: We Draw Cartoons – Not Guns! ® which later developed into an international constituency of Cartoonists, Illustrators, Comic Artists and aficionados – and some of its members were even ‘in jail’ who were remorseful. Go figure that one out…Striking a nerve is what definitely happened with the Formation of this Group, bound and determined to deter Crime and the harsh realities of what can happen – in a moment or less.

At that time, Crime Prevention was #1 on President Bill Clinton’s Agenda. Being a Writer & local Personality, the Media immediately ran with my Story as I realized what happened to me could definitely happen to anyone else. Just returning home from work, one evening when I was ‘followed’ in to the lobby of my apartment by a stranger. IF I had only closed the wrought iron gate behind me & not ‘dilly-dallied’ in the lobby looking for my key to retrieve my mail, NONE of that horror would have happened.

Yet, it changed my life FOR THE BETTER.

Robin George of NBC – Channel 5 in Chicago did an interview. Harry Porterfield of ABC Channel 7’s ‘Someone You Should Know’ spotlighted by efforts launching CAC. Dahleen Glanton of the Chicago Tribune ran a lengthy & pictoralized Account in an April, 1992 issue of this Paper, rated as #6 in the nation. At my urging and/or suggestion, Mayor Richard M. Daley made October 25TH of each year: CARTOONISTS AGAINST CRIME Day ©1993 – in 1993. Governor Jim Edgar declared December 3 as ‘Day Without Crime’ © - also in 1993 for the Citizens of Illinois.

And, sorry to say: 20 years later, Crime is still amongst us. White Collar Crime is out of control. The Criminals seem to be getting younger, bolder, fiercer and the proliferation of hand-guns has sky-rocketed. If there’s a moral conscience left, it’s often not seen (enough). Still in all, it is every person (all of us – from the youngest to the oldest) who can make a difference and I urge and encourage all of you to take a stand in whatever Crusade you feel strongest about!

So, what can be done in 20 years besides:

Blinking 189,382,684 times
Sleeping 5502 Days away
Sleeping 130,054 Hours away
Hearing your heart beat 1,937,286,000 times
Eating 45,472 Meals (this does not include snacking)

A LOT: Knowing that each day is a Blessing, I began:

The Art of Event-Making
ASK’s Campaigns For Humanity ©1990

That today contains over 1900 Holidates to Celebrate covering 34 distinct Categories. There’s something for all of us to celebrate – LIFE itself – between all the commercizlized Events & Holidays that are considered ‘Traditional.’

FAST-FORWARDING TO DAY: With a background in The Arts & Event-Making, I am creating the 7-Part Literary, Cinematic & Toymatic Franchise known as:

SKiN: Sacred Kinship in Nature™
How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race ©2009

that is a natural Extension of the Cartoon Empire that I built in the formation, development and distribution of CARTOONISTS AGAINTS CRIME ©1991.

After all, when there’s something that needs to be fixed, Fix it! It will be interesting to see what unfolds next…

Childhood Obesity: A Kid's Book designed NOT to weigh you down. Quote of ASK: Dec 22, 2011 - 12:58 PM

As seen on the Facebook Page called: Children's Book, operated by Author Jay Jay Jackson.

Children's Book: ‎"Mommie, What Is Healthy Food?" Dedicated to the "Childhood Obesity Crisis" Campaign starts in January 2012! Get your copy of my new children's book and start your year off right! — with Michelle Obama and Secretary Arne Duncan.

As 'America's Premier Eventologist & EAT-Ventologist' I know it's all too easy to get fat and remain fat. The answer is quite simple. Eat less and move. There are all sorts of interesting fun and 'moving' things to do. If U can afford (or your folks), a bike is a terrifically mobile way to get around; be green and a way to peddle off frustration and get in some fresh air that is mandatory. If U don't bike during the winter - or prefer not to (dependent on the climate U live in), get a stationery bike. Exercise with some friends in a gym - the local YMCA has plenty of room. And, if UR a spiritual kid, begin a program at your school, synagogue, church, etc. where a portion of your weekly meals are sent to 3rd - 4th world countries where there is no food. Let your conscience be your guide when it comes to eating. The lighter U feel; the more energy U may have. So glad U R addressing this issue with "Mommie, What Is Healthy Food?" But let's not forget our fathers, too - as everyone in the family has to know what should & should not be eaten...all in moderation, of course! Cheers, ASK:

Who's feeding THE STARVING this Holiday Season?

As posted on my Facebook Page:

AMERICANS, if I see 1 more TV Food Commercial or Facebook Food Posting here, I’ll just scream-out-loud. And my Yelps are guaranteed to break the Sound Barrier-at-large. After all, U got to love these times of the year here in the United States of America when We eat more in a Week than some Kids in poor Countries eat in a Year & then Experts wonder why so many of us are overweight if not just plain morbidly obese. And about those starving Kids in 3RD World Countries -- weren’t they starving 40+ years ago when many of us were growing up? Maybe in 2012 we’ll get our Priorities screwed on right…I certainly hope so.

Siluri: Latest TOY Addition on The SKiN: Sacred Kinship in Nature Scene & Scenario.

THE FOLLOWING WAS SENT TO THE EDITOR IN CHIEF OF THE TOY BOOK in New York City after the Purchase of a terrific Re$ale Toy @ Unique on Western/Howard in Chicago, IL USA @ 8:52 AM CST. Once more infomation & his Manufacturer arereceived, Siluri's Pictures will be posted here:

* * * * * * *

RE: ASK/Chicago: A TOY Question from the Heartland 4 U!

TO: Ms. Jackie Breyer
Editor in Chief/ The Toy Book/ Specialty Toys & Gifts

Hi Jackie:

Happy Holidays 2 U & your Staff! I can't think of anyone who has a neater job than you do - except me, as I have collected TOYS since I was born - 59 years ago and now use them as my characters in my books & movie scripts. I even have the trike I rode when I was 6 & can still 'fit my tousche on it' - ah, that's when they really made seats suitable!

I went to your site for some FUN -- but have a heavy-duty question to ask of you. Hopefuly, U will have a moment. So you will know & understand: Part of my 'MESSAGE' in my creative writings (that expands to books & movie scripts) is to give RESALE TOYS a 2nd chance - it's like adopting a kid and/or a pet. Toss-Aways are somebody, too, in:

Koopersmith's Kreative Kingdom & Kalendar
A Return To Utopia.

So today I found the most incredible 3 foot long by 28 inches (from arm to arm) Salamander TOY @ Re$ale that I immediately picked up -- ALL MINE -- for Sequel 5/Book 5. What a glorious TOY! However, I like to know WHO manufactured them. It's not that UR ever going to find the specific designer that created that special TOY-- but the previous owner had cut the NAME TAG off...& I am totally miffed and baffled. I've seen 10s of 1000s of TOYS the last 59 years, but NEVER one like him. His Name is SILURI as I know he's from the SILURIAN PERIOD. I do my research. AND: Yes, all my TOYS (even my furniture) is uniquely named.

ANYWAY, Ms. JB., can you - do you - are you planning to have a web page devoted to OLD(er) TOYS and who designed them -- like an archive for people like me who are 'just that curious?' That would be so very helpful. As I toted SILURI around the Re$ale Store -- people's eyes popped open -- they (these were grow-up adults) just had to pet his head! It was quite an experience. I should have had a camera team following me around & about.

U always know U hit a positive chord when People react this way...even B-4 reading the Story and/or seeing the Movie. That's good! That's an indicator that you've struck a nerve...Plus, in a cold city -- where many people are NOT that friendly, TOYS seem to have that Special Something that breaks thru the Ice, whether it is DecemBURR or not!

AND BEING A GIRL, I know you will enjoy this one. Siluri is beige in a reptile print pattern. While shopping, I also found a pair of Stuart Weitzman Heels in this exact motif. Yes, I will be doing a FOTO SHOOT with him in a few days. Can we be starting a new Trend: Dressing like your TOYS - there's a possibility here - it's not the First Time I've done it! Total Cost of my Spree: $6.55 for a million dollars worth of Ideas. I guess it does pay to get up early.

IN CLOSING: Yes, that was my Query & Adventure for the Day: The 19th of Dec. Any help you can shed on this Dilemma of what TOY company created Siluri would be most appreciated! I O U 1!

I sincerely hope you & your Team have a most delightful & toy-filled Holiday, Jackie!

Facebooking THE RELIGION OF FUN® by Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith - Chicago's Very Own

GETTING CREATIVE IN THE SNOW: After 59 years & 16 years of those now devoted to being tired of Email, I’ve gone back to construct a HOLIDAY Card which is nearly & almost done! Needless to say, it’s being sent out to the Top 100 People that I feel can give the due reverence & respect to:

SKiN: Sacred Kinship in Nature™

its due. And yes, I did have to stand in line at the Post Office waiting for the Stamps (as I only use designer stamps – none of these boring forever stamps); and print up certain excerpts & fillers as well as mail out the very important 4 page Theory of the BOOKLET which has a fun & funky title affixed to it – something that is non-denominational since this is everyone’s Season to give gifts; get gifts and regift.

IF you happen to be wondering what the Title is, I can tell you that it is something I have incorporated into my Life for the last 59 years & helps us get along for the long haul. Entitled: THE RELIGION OF FUN® -- it’s a motto to live by as We enter 2012…

Copies will be on my Blog, KOOPERSMITHin’ at:

However, I did cheat – I sent copies of THE RELIGION OF FUN® to the top 200 newspaper/mags/columnists of my choosing – after all FUN is universal and is exactly what I plan on doing next…after I finish up this post. U should, 2!

How 10 Plush TOYS R Workin 4 The Weekends - Thanks 2 Huey Lewis & The News...

MY BREAK-THROUGH IN THE ARTS. Besides writing up my YEAR END IN REVIEW (which is now over 9500 words in the making), I have been creating the

SKiN: Sacred Kinship in Nature™
How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race ©2009 – Holiday Card

for this year & everything was going NO WHERE FAST. I have extremely particular taste when it comes to how they MUST BE PRESENTED. That’s all there is to it & them. Special Toys that are eliminating RACISM, deserve a Special Treatment.

Then, I did something quite unexpected of moi– that would be called in clinical circles as letting the LEFT SIDE OF YOUR BRAIN take over. I merely took the Collaged Photo of the 10 TOYS & placed them in a horizontal vs. vertical format & not only did they all fit in, they appeared all the better!

IN OTHER WORDS: When was the last time U tried squeezing 10 TOYS’ Pix into a 2 X 4 inch square? That vantage point gives the card an entirely different feel. That made my day! One step closer to the finished product(ion).

Last year, THE TOYS’ Holiday Card was a Calendar in which they ‘only celebrated’ the Weekends of 2011 – a spin-off of the hit song WORKIN FOR THE WEEKENDS by the incomparable Huey Lewis, but this year – like all years had to be unusual & different. Huey is online at:

Therefore, Art Lesson #1 is: If the graphic duzent fit one way, try the other! U just never know when U’ll find that perfect match-up!

How the Winners of THE TOTY: TOYS OF THE YEAR AWARD® practice The Religion of FUN ®.

Just Wondering About…THE RELIGION OF FUN®

Screenwriter – Author – Eventologist - Promoter
Chicago – Illinois 60660-1319 USA

DATELINE: Wednesday, December 14, 2011 – 1:15 PM CST

Are TOYS Jewish? Can there be Jewish TOYS?

For the most Part, TOYS are non-denominational.

Like PETS, TOYS will love you unconditionally whatever you do or don’t do; have or don’t have; & say or don’t say, but without the Furry Hair Balls, constant Barking or Meowing, long Walks in the Cold or messy Cleanup. Much like your Family DOG or CAT (pictured below for The FUN of IT - however you define IT - being as vague and remote as IT can be), PETS are FUN & reflect Core Values so many of us lose and yearn to regain.

In KOOPERSMiTH’S KREATiVE KiNGDOM, this Theory proves to be the CATALYST in a DOGMATIC Way that is designed to wipe-out & eliminate RACISM with its own meaningful Methodology via a 7-Part Literary, Cinematic & TOYESQUE Series entitled:



2012 begins Year #3 of this Franchise. Launched in early 2009 & consisting of 4 Books & 4 Movie Scripts (for a Total Lot of 7) that have been diligently penned since SKiN’s™ Inception on Thursday, January 29, 2009 @ 8:44 AM, the next Step in this CreatiVEnture® is to get that ‘Big Break.’ To enlighten & entice you, this Package features a festive Hanukah Card (a Pop Culture Collectible, indeed) commemorating the 2149TH Celebration of the Festival of Lights (as of 2011) for those of you tabulating those fast & fleeting Years.

HOW TO PROCEED: Please check-out the Tuesday, November 1, 2011 Edition of my Blog, KOOPERSMITHIN’® entitled:

Moving 11 Lovable TOYS into DreamWorks Animation.

The Start of a Movie-Making Dynasty that erases Racism. How YOU can help.


to see how you can get involved in this worthy Humanitarian & Cross-Cultural Effort where We collectively (for once & for all) are not instantly judged by The Color of Our SKiN Shades & Tone, but upon the Criteria of more genuine Feelings, Thoughts & Sentiments.

For all that I know, if TRoF: THE RELIGION oF FUN® binds People, then We know that TOYS (playful and play-filled as they inherently are) are The Root of that Pleasurable Experience. Religion can (for the most Part - as History has proven) separate a Population of People (in an ironic Way) since all Religions are based in The Belief that only One God hails ‘supreme’ whether We individually do or don’t believe in His Existence. The Choice is strictly personal. TOYS’ tend to bond themselves to whatever Situation they find themselves in & work their Way through all Events to a ‘happily ever after.’ Whether the Human possessing THE TOY is a practicing Jew, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Deist, Hindu or Atheist, a TOY spells out Excitement + Enticement by bringing Life to a Scene/Scenario. Philosophies peculiar to Humanity can be portrayed via a TOY (as its Vehicle) that could not be utilized in any other Manner. Owning a TOY opens a Door in Communication, not found in Humanity itself. TOYS are undeniably capable of teaching Tolerance.

The Rodney King Approach to ‘Getting Along’ is simple. Humans (as a self-sustaining Species) just do not possess this Trait. TOYS do. Selfish & cruel (to obtain their own TOYS in ‘The Local Playground of Life’) Humans overlook ‘The Best in Life,’ sorrowful as that Statement is, till now with the Introduction of SKiN™.

To reiterate, TOYS are what they are. What you see and what you get in a TOY is THE STORY of One’s Lifetime. As Transformers, TOYS can become Leaders & Role Models in The Battle to eliminate Racism as I have so thoughtfully done in my 7-Part BK & 7 Movie Script Dynasty called:


The Basis of SKiN™ rests upon three commanding (3) Topics that require Attention while raising the Consciousness of every Individual. SKiN’s™ Appeal, Precision & Results rest in the Actions THE TOYS® make; the Words THE TOYS® speak; & the Messages THE TOYS® convey. This TOYS all perform, resolving to flush away and vanquish the Incivilities (Failings, Faults, Flaws, Frailties & Frustrations) of Man’s Human Nature. The Blanket of Insecurity evaporates & thus, Strife-in-Life is then removed. Striking-out-Strife is their Slogan. Better Morals are restored & firmly cemented into place.

Because these TOYS are Front-Runner Favorites to whomever sees them and because this Flock & Selection of TOYS aim to go where no other TOYS have gone before; and to achieve Goals that many Humans cannot tackle, they have been chosen to collectively receive:

For the Time of your Life, these TOYS say IT all as they eliminate Racism; dispel the Mixed Signals & Ironies Humans receive every Day while getting to ‘The Heart’ of what really matters.

PONDERiNGS: What Human Shortcoming is more important to focus upon than The Elimination of Racism? IT is not only The End Products of Books, Movies & lively TOYS all lined up on a Shelf, IT is the Ideas, Ideals & Ideologies that SKiN™ projects, portrays and places into motion that will change faulty Outlooks, trigger better Behaviors & propel solid Societal Change. With The Groundwork of:


being firmly laid, now a distinct Possibility exists (with your Help) that this Milestone for Humanity can be reached in (each of) our Lifetime(s). The Stage is set. IT is hoped that my Efforts here will inspire you to join me in this most noble of Causes. Please contribute in whatever Way you can in order to move PROJECT: SKiN™ towards Fruition.

SPECiAL REQUEST: PROJECT: SKiN™ needs the Assistance of a major Production Studio (sympathetic to great Humanitarian Causes & the Jewish Culture). Can you walk-in this Project to DreamWorks Animation SKG or another Film Facility that can do this great Enterprise Justice? At this Time, that Liaison is destined to advance the Cause of my monumental Undertaking & Quest, one that concerns us all every Day of our Lives & solidifies the Continuation of our Species. I may be reached at the following Locales to discuss PROJECT: SKiN™ in full Detail.

LOGiCAL CONCLUSiON: "Yes, THE RELIGION OF FUN is FUN, universal & nothing less. The FUNDAMENTAL Cause of FUN is to share & spread IT via THE JOYS that TOYS cast. Enough said! Bring on THE TOYS! Let’s play…”

COUNTDOWN TO 60: Today I'm 59 & 4 Months old. Seems like only yesterday I was entering Kindergarten with Miss Fritz (before Miss became Ms.) and didn't have a care in the World. But Life's been good and so much better than it has been for lots of others who are making 'bad news worse' and we know who those folks are and aren't. As I watched parts & portions THE TODAY SHOW with Matt Lauer, Ann Curry & Al Roker, someone in the Plaza proudly held up a sign saying: "I'm 60 Today!" That's definitely the W to do it - be proud of every day you a right & writeous way! Maybe I'll do the same thing in 8 Months -- and include a Bit of Skywriting as well.

SKiN's Fifth Sequel gets its Opening. All in a Night's Rest.

Attn: Movie Producers: Well, ‘IT’ came to me in a Dream – this Morning while rolling over. IT means an ‘idea,’ of course. I now have the Opening Sequence to SKiN’s 5TH Sequel of 7. 4 are done already. Back in the day (of July, 2010), ANTS already beat out 3,164 other scripts in a Hollywood international screenplay competition. I was not even going to begin writing this till mid-2012, but low and behold – the ‘fragment’ came in so crystal clear that I got up; pulled myself out of bed and wrote it down – immortalizing it forever. I wonder what was IN my mind to even make me think that of that particular opening? I’m certainly glad the brain works when I’m not. Ah…now only 119 more pages to go…then, all those rewrites. I’m glad Christmas & New Year’s Eve are long-long weekends for this year, aren’t U! Cheers, ASK 12-8-2011 – 3:22 PM CST

ASK on: When The Queen calls...


A very, very dear Friend of mine that I have been Friends with since early 1992 – coming up on 20 years now - sent me an Enote Facsimile – it was what he received from:

from Her Majesty’s Command…
to a Reception.
At Buckingham Palace. The one off the River Thames. Pronounced ‘TEMZ.’
The Buc Palace that’s located in JOE: Jolly Old England.
It’s later this Week.

It’s a night affair. It deals with the fact that this Gent has been 1 of England’s leading Movers & Shakers in The Arts/Sciences & Exploration since the 1960s. He is also an accomplished Author. Just plain ACCOMPLISHED in every Degree of ‘The Word.’ Ah, to live vicariously! How much more exciting can Life get? And, U thought this was neat – U should see the OFFICIAL ‘Entry Card.’

What will he wear?
What will they serve?
Will he curtsy? Do people practice their curtsying B-4 they meet The Royals?

Can he excuse himself and go sauntering thru the entire Castle? That’s what I would do!

This is Stuff I never think about because I’m too busy working on my 7 Book & 7 Movie Scripts called: SKiN: Sacred Kinship in Nature™
How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race ©2009

But it certainly gave me a Rush of Excitement! And, this wonderful Event that my Friend will be attending made me think: If I were to ‘arrive’ after ‘placing’ the above Project who’d Palace would I want to invade?

What a Rush!

Response #1:
Q of: Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith
And, HE can reply by 'just' emailing The Palace - the Royal Email is listed towards the bottom...sets me to thinking now.

Andy Roonery & Pearl Harbor: 70TH Year Anniversary on Dec. 7, 2011

As posted on my

It’s also the 1ST Month Anniversary that one of our Favorite Americans, ANDY ROONEY of CBS’ 60 Minutes died. I always think about Dates, being ‘America’s Premier Eventologist’ & whatever all that contains so I think of Dates & how significant they are in our Life and Lifetimes. Andy, as I recall, participated in WW II. It would be interesting to have heard what he would have said about the 70TH Anniversary – esp. since he was only in his 20s when he went overseas. I would suspect he’d be saying that WAR is no place for men, women or children and the best war fought is none at all.

Why you should endorse USC Shoah Foundation Institute Visual History Archive.

ASK’s Endorsement: IF you never lived beyond 1930, U may not have heard of the horrific Genocides that happened to what we call Civilization across our Planet. IF you never lived beyond 1930, then you definitely are not reading this FB notice. Thanks to TV, Radio & The Internet, we’re MORE in touch and in tune with one another than ever before. However, many things happening today – starting with our World Wars during the 1900s are NOT pretty – or humane to say the least. All of Civilization has been ‘founded’ on the annihilation of Populations of Peoples & Animals. AND, We consider ourselves (and these Acts) ‘human.’ I beg to differ. I often wonder about that.

However, the valiant Efforts of USC Shoah preserves the Sentiments of the Survivors who have witnessed first hand these Acts of Abhorrence against each Other. After all, We must strive to keep the History alive so that those Atrocities do not happen again. This is why I highlyencourage you – esp. at this Time of Year when the major Religions celebrate their holiest of Holidays to take some Time and investigate what USC Shoah Foundation Institute based in Los Angeles is doing. Only then, will We – well, just maybe, We will be able to find Peace here on Planet Earth. For the Sake of Humanity: You, Me, Us & Future Generations: Let’s hope so – although it will take more than Hope to pull us through.

ON FACEBOOK AT: USC Shoah Foundation Institute: On the Web at:

Help build support for the Genocide Survivors who have shared their Testimonies with us by sharing our Facebook Page with your Friends.

Koopersmith explains 3F: Faux Fur Fridays® - Year #4.

Faux Fur Fridays® - officially begins today! It’s got to be FAUX FUR – it’s got to be a Friday. And, it’s better when the weather is cold. I’ll be out and about tonight, dining shopping and hanging out via the Faux Fur Jacket that gave this HOLIDATE ® its start in October of 2008. And that was when I met Robert Verdi of She’s Got The Look while he was in town looking for Models 35 & older. Well, I qualified (by a few years). I wore a knee length leopard jacket; belted and it really did make a statement. Verdi jumped off the stage and tried it on – after he got me OUT OF IT, of course. With a reaction like that, I knew that 3F would become a big hit – esp. in my Haute Couture Holidates to Celebrate. It’s not how you look, it’s when you wear FAUX FUR that makes the difference. Fridays are a great start to that Fun Time, as Friday marks the start of our Weekends. I’m out of here!

Chicago, IL USA:

ASK ANNOUNCES ON DECEMBER 1, 2011: The Launch of: THE EVENTOLOGY HALL OF FAME ® that will consist of the 1900 Holidates to Celebrate that I have been creating since Wednesday, July 25, 1990. December 23 willsoon be here and it marks the 20TH Year Anniversary of my Founding of CARTOONISTS AGAINST CRIME ©1991 that greatly assisted in the prioritization of the Roots of Eventology that now consists of HOLIDATES in 34 different Categories that have received international exposure since their Inception. Since many of these are already inked into:

How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race ©2009

this HALL OF FAME will allow them to take on a life of their own since the above 7 books and 7 movie scripts are now comprising a great deal of my time and effort. And, the Writings – all 1900 of them and their vaious Promotionals, Photos & miscellanea should not be lost in the Decades to come. More will be posted on my blog: Koopersmtihin at:

The Top Cross-Cultural Books & Animated Movies to erase Racism for 2011 & Beyond.

December 1, 2011 UPDATE TO THE NOVEMBER 1, 2011 POSTING:

Well, it’s December 1st. Where I live, we spell that as: DecemBURR. But no matter how you spell it, it’s cold out. Let it be known that there are Ways to get around & keep warm ‘n toasty that if you don’t have a Cabana in a warm(er) Place than Chicago. The way I do it is to stay in, focused and write.

Plus, it’s mandatory to set some Deadlines B-4 U. Mine was to write out a complete Document(ary) about what my 7 Books/Movies called:


are all about & give that Project a full Month to ponder & produce. Now that the Holidays are nearly here, that designated and allocated Time Period is over with. The Task is 95% complete. In retrospect, I can & will admit that it was:

A terrific Project and goal to set for a Writer;
it became a great Marketing Tool and Way to see what’s gotten done since I undertook this entire Endeavor (basically its Theme is to erase Racism) that I began on January 29, 2009;

it now shows me what needs to be done – that ‘Perspective Thang’ is in usage now;

plus, it’s given me the Chance to say that on November 1ST when the original posting of:

Moving 11 Lovable TOYS into Dreamworks Animation. The Start of a Movie-Making Dynasty that erases Racism. How YOU can help.

was posted on Koopersmithin, my BLOG, it read as only 1494 Words. Today, that Figure stands at the 8,969 Mark, meaning 7,475 Words of Ideas were crafted & drafted and typed into place. That’s approximately: 298.96666666666664 Words per day.

But as We all know: IT’s the rewriting & editing that’s ‘The Killer’ as my friend, Cal would say.

One of my Clients did need some help this Month. He wanted to rush through a Business Letter that was to be his ‘Calling Card’ for a huge Project that was taking (in total) 17 years of his Life. This was 1 of those on-going Projects we often hear about. Because of this Writing where every Week, something else was presenting itself to me; as more Ideas seeped in, I was able to tell him to slow down & work systematically.

The ‘Oh, I should have had a V-8’ Syndrome: The worst possible scenario is that you seal-up the ‘proverbial envelope’ and then remember: “Oh, I should have said...” But then, I guess that’s why there are Sequels and Part 2’s!

And, I knew he knew what I was talking (or typing) about.

Since early November, my Goal for Today, Thursday, December 1, 2011 was to have posted this Paper (in its entirety on my Blog), but my Editor stated the 3 Messages are strong enough to sell to Animation, TOY, Women, Arts & General Interest Magazines. That was rather nice to hear.

However, if you wish to read:


of it, PROJECT: SKiN™ is still found on November 1, 2011 – at:

The Fun Part is next – doing the Artwork – with these 11 Characters – Toys.

And as for it being December 1 of 2011…I’m still wondering what happened to 1968. Is anyone else?

Remembering CARL on World AIDS' Day: 2011

ASK ON: Remembering Carl: I haven't seen anyone post anything about December 1 being World AIDS' Day. I remember my friend, CARL, who died of the Disease back in 1985. He was such a great guy. Lived on my floor; was a great deal younger than I am; was a Cake/Dessert Chef at The Drake Hotel and 'was wild' by all accounts. He was born & raised in Ohio; moved to Chicago since his lover lived here; and we had some of the best times. We'd go to lots of estate sales; pretending we were extremely 'upscale & affluent' and for the most part we fooled lots of people. But it was no joke that when he died, there was something worse there lurking for so many more people who'd die of that horrific disease. Oh, I think of Carl even if it's not World AIDS' Day - he's 1 of the few that U meet in life that is worth remembering.
