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.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
