Been a bit busy updating my site today. Still got a lot to do, if anyone has any suggestions, let me know.
My flat is now for sale, so anyone you know who's looking, let them contact me. This has to go asap.
This week been very busy, just flew by. Every moring, as I travel by bus to work, I take the newspaper at the bus. The article that still is in my head is the one regarding the new X Factor series. The newspaper was stating people are being exploited. True, however, when they go to the program, they actually do sign and agree they can be ridiculed.
Two years ago I had the papers to join "Britain's got Talent". There was a contract included. Signing this would mean I would loose the rights to them about whatever I would be auditioning with. Also stated literally I would agree they would be able to exploit my performence.
Now I do not know what is written in the contract of X Factor or American Idol, America's got Talent, but it would not surprise me it would be included.
If someone does agree with these terms, who are we to judge. If you ask someone to jump into the water, the other person has the choice : to jump or not to jump. Whatever, it will be THEIR choice.
My choice was that I did not wanted to loose the rights to my act I've performed for so many years. Most of the kids who've seen the act must now be young adults. (am I getting old :P ). Back then I was performing under the name Alan Ventrilo.
Hope to hear your thoughts.
Have a great weekend.
