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?

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-Lawson, send it

"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

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement
