The Hate Continues...

 Post Represents: Friday, January 4, 2012
  
The last time I heard from this hater was on May 2, 2012. Now he's back with vengeance. This is his hate response to my recent press release I sent out. 
Motown

Your IMDb ranking is 3,669,352. Your talk show from Tampa is  ranked 543,483. Starving in Hollywood is ranted 97,607.

My production company is ranked - 668 out of over 1 million Companies on IMDb. My personal ranking is 3,119. My personal best is 1,292. My present projects - Creatures of the Night is ranked 4,086. Who is the Bloodiest Royal? which is are in  pre-production is ranked - 44,689.

My 20 year old wife - R---- has the #1 film company in her homeland of Russia. The Kremlin actually is funding her projects.

Our infant daughters IMDb rankings are - 108,065 and 115,690. They are clearly higher than you.

In early December, the VP of LCO contacted me and signed me. Last week, they signed my wife. 

People who are not in the industry may think you are great. Hollywood has no use for you. Face the facts.

We have 4 cats. All of our cats are better ranked then you. My one cat Nyx, is ranked 71,104.

I am a professional. I am filming in LA in a few weeks. TAKE ME OFF YOUR EMAIL LIST. I do not have time for amateurs and wannabes. 

Final Thoughts

I hope you were amused from this as much as I was.

Press Release - The Late Night Experiment with Motown Maurice

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Late Night Experiment with Motown Maurice will
be the entry 
game changer into late night
Self proclaimed Future of Late Night Television adds another chapter to his relentless pursuit with an episodic web series entitled, The Late Night Experiment.

LOS ANGELES, CA. (Jan 2, 2012) – On Christmas day, the season finale of The Late Night Experiment with Motown Maurice went live on Youtube. The finale ended a six part series which co-stars Mark Sipka, Julio Hanson, Raj Jawa and Kevin C├írdenas. In the final episode, the spokes model for Fashion Fair cosmetics Nassali Kiggundu makes a brief cameo appearance. 

The Late Night Experiment fits in the genre of comedy, drama, adventure, reality and mystery. Each webisode retells portions of Motown Maurice’s ongoing pursuit to claim his throne in late night television. In the making of this series, no late night talk show host was spared. Whether you’re a veteran like David Letterman or a legend plotting a comeback such as Arsenio Hall, Motown Maurice sets the record straight by indicating who his rivals are.

Originally, The Late Night Experiment was submitted as a pitch pilot to the New York Television Film Festival last summer (June 2012). The pilot was designed to forever revolutionize the look and feel of a late night television talk show with Motown Maurice’s comedic and innovative point of view.

Confidence of acceptance to the festival was extremely high among Motown Maurice and his team. NYTVF was hence considered as Motown Maurice’s long awaited pathway into the arena of late night.

When the results to the festival came in (August 2012), disappointment temporally defined the pitch pilot and the entry into late night remained unknown. In the spirit, of keeping The Late Night Experiment alive, a Youtube channel and Facebook page was created with the intent of uploading a series of comedy skits and parody’s. After the first video was submitted, the list of ideas began to line up in the form of a story. Therefore, the most practical approach was to transform the concept into an episodic web series.

The Late Night Experiment with Motown Maurice web series version is a real time extension of his first installment into late night television. On January 23, 2010, The Motown Maurice Show was born in front of a live studio audience and broadcast on WTTA MyTV Tampa Bay.  

Now, the quest continues in Hollywood in the format of a web series. Each episode reveals the trueness of his adversities and the morality of his crusade is clear. There is no blueprint on how to become a nationally syndicated late night talk show host. The answer to this feat is unknown. Therefore, Motown Maurice is left with no option but to "Experiment."

About The Late Night Experiment with Motown Maurice


The six episode web series of The Late Night Experiment is available now online at: www.Youtube.com/LateNightExperiment or www.MotownMaurice.com. Hilarious outtakes and a two part documentary are coming soon.

Final Thoughts of 2012

Post Represents: Monday, December 31, 2012

2:58PM EST

Its new years eve and I don't have the greatest appetite. I'm in my parents living room trying update my blog and I feel like I'm forcing myself to eat this left over turkey sandwich my mom just prepared for me. It taste great but there is a lot on my mind. At this moment most of whats on my mind is personal. Today makes one week since I've been back in Tampa. Most of it has been spent distort and annoyed. All inspired by one particular person and her inability to communicate since I left L.A. Hmmmm, interesting. Logically, when you add up all the pieces mostly I'm being lied to.

From from a crusaders point of view, I know what this means. The purpose of this particular individual in my life/quest has been fulfilled. Short term appearances has been an ongoing theme of my journey. In many ways I'm used to it. I'm built for it and I'm designed for it.

With my left hand rubbing across my forehead and temple I really don't want to write right now.  There is so much to write about 2012. All of it has been positive. Positive at least until this last week of December. I just want to rest and be lazy but I can't. I've already spent a majority of my time being lazy I want more of it. For right now, I'm going to return to my other blog assignments and return to this post later.

5:45PM EST

I can't do it. I've tried my best to write. I have so much inside of me that I want to express in writing but I don't have the energy or drive to write at this moment. As a result, I'm gong to categorize all my conclusive thoughts for 2012 into video. Enjoy!

Friday with Papa, Malcolm and Martin

Post Represents: Friday, December 28, 2012 


A day devoted to my blog evolved into a black history flash back.  As I blogged, my father joined me near by signing late Christmas cards. Knowing how much he loves to hear speeches of Malcolm X, I suggested we listen to some on Youtube and excitedly he agreed.

Mom, checking her email we'll representing my 2010 The Motown Maurice Show shirt.
Papa and myself getting work done and listening to Malcolm X.
This is the very first speech we listened to which followed by many others.


Malcolm X Speech: 'Stop Singing, Start Swinging!'

This speech below set the mark for the night. After playing several different versions of Malcolm X, I suggested we play Martin's Mount Top Speech. When it was over I was shocked at what I seen.


Martin Luther Kings Mountain Top Speech:
