Pepsi's Challenge: New Show Review

Indra Niyoo CEO of Pepsico

This morning I was watching “Squawk on the Street” CNBC for my favorite Asian Businessperson, Melissa Lee. I wanted to find out if she was wearing boots today.

Moreover, I noticed there was a preview for a new show that premiered tonight called “Pepsi’s Challenge.”

The challenge is to see if PepsiCo can take over the world more or less.

I had to catch the first episode.

I caught a soundbyte from the CEO talking about Pepsi’s enormous goals with business expansion and making all products in the markets PepsiCo products, making every product available a PepsiCo product. PepsiCo is the hybrid combination of Pepsi and Frito-Lay, as well as other components such as Quaker.

So this new show will follow PepsiCo’s plans to conquer the globe. Google and Facebook have proven that a single company can control every aspect of our lives, so why can’t Pepsi control the world? Well, as for the show’s premiere, their presentation was not exciting. They presented a bland and mild approach to selling their show, and the overall storytelling was not something was super entertaining to watch.

It’s always fascinating to hear and think about how the mechanics of corporatism and individual companies can grow and capture financial wealth and widespread impact on human life.

Pepsi is launching plans to single-handedly take over the marketplace of Planet Earth, and this show did very little to make that exciting. Furthermore, there were not enough hot bitches in it. (My integrity fades so fast).

I love that the CEO is a woman from India, Indra Nooyi, for it is a great example that nothing is off limits for any woman in the workplace.

Very exciting ideas. Not a very exciting show.
"Pepsi's Challenge" airs on CNBC at at your locally listed time.

What the hell is this?

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to , single women are presented with

A new Skinshape LP is on the way as of October 28th! "Nostalgia" promises to delve into the world of motives and motifs. Will Dorey (AKA Skinshape) has described this particular track "High Tide, Storm Rising" as "the main theme song of a movie." And if you have read any of my prior posts, you know I'm a sucker for anything cinematic.  Here's a full look at the Skinshape "Nostalgia" track listing: 01. Theme For Lazarus 02. Better Chances 03. Dreams of Panama 04. Moonlight Walk  05. Albion 06. High Tide, Storm Rising 07. Turn Away 08. Bohanon's Cornucopia 09. Bad Dreams 10. Fish & Chips 11. Dawn I would try to include something about live shows, but the soulful likes of Skinahape simply prefer to record and NOT perform live, which is an interesting choice in today's world.  Once again, "Nostalgia" is out everywhere as of Oct. 28th.
