Casting Call - The BBC 411

You've probably noticed that there haven't been a whole lot of casting calls for people living outside of North America. Well, all you British readers are in luck because the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) has a whole bunch of shows that are looking for lots of different people. So no matter what your interests may be, there's a good chance the BBC has a show just for someone like you!

Casting Call - Dumb and Dumber

Of course, one of the most popular types of reality shows are those that feature ordinary people doing stupid things (along the lines of Fear Factor, for instance). Dick & Dom in Da Bungalow is one of the more popular Saturday morning shows in Britain, and the program is gearing up for a new season. They're basically looking for anybody that can do a stupid human trick, so if you've always been proud of your ability to sing Complicated backwards, step right up for your 15 minutes of fame!

Casting Call - Sing Your Heart Out

If you're a fan of American Idol but don't quite have the vocal cords to be the next Clay or Ruben, you might want to give a new show called Can't Sing Singers a try. They're looking for contestants from Liverpool, London, Birmingham and Cardiff that make William Hung sound like Christina Aguilera, so don't worry about it if all the neighborhood dogs come around whenever you start singing. Auditions start August 2004, and there'll be a live television broadcast of the finalists this December.

Casting Call - Let's Get Tough

Do you think you're tough? What about your family? If you answered yes to both, then you're probably an ideal candidate for Britain's Toughest Family. The show is looking for families that are willing to try different activities, from sky diving to swimming in ice-cold water. If one of your parents is afraid of spiders, this is definitely not the show for you! But if your idea of fun is spending an afternoon bungee jumping with your fam, then Britain's Toughest Family would love to hear from you.

  • If any of these shows sound interesting to you, head on over to the official BBC site, www.bbc.co.uk, for more information (you'll also find lots of other programs that are looking for people there, too)!

    Dear Dish-It In The Forums

    SmartSunnyShadow
    I feel like that too. My best friend will always hang out with her 'new friends' that I have a really bad opinion about. My friend will treat me rudely all the time and sometimes make fun of me with her friends. But, when I needed her the most in my life, she was there for me, and I told her how I felt. She says that she just wants to hang out with more people and apologized, people can be a little teasy at times.  Also, after seeing each other for a long time, people make new friends and start hanging out with them more, it doesn't mean that she doesn't like you.  This may be different for you, but just tell her about it, she will have to know you feelings at one point.  Hope I helped you.

    Nothing happened between us. I just feel like I'm not important to her.

    Did something happen between you two in the past? If so, I feel like she might have some unresolved issues with you that you need to discuss with her. And, time doesn't always mean a lot. I've gotten closer to someone before compared to someone whom I had known for 8 years.

    Dear Dish-it,                          Me and my friend just started talking again, and it seems like she regrets it. She'll leave me for the people she has only known for a couple of months, when I've been friends with her for a year. Also, she gets annoyed with me, and I don't know what to do.

    I'll be honest, I don't think that it's very fair that you're placing so much blame on your mother. Cancer is very hard to heal in any animal or person. She may of been able to help one spot, but that doesn't mean that she was going to be able to heal the rest. There's a slim chance that they could of made it through, but it's probably for the best that she put him down. Cancer is a painful thing to go through for dogs and humans alike. It would of been worse to push it. As for the depression, I understand where you're coming from with it. It's a difficult thing to go through and it makes things hard to do. I've struggled with things in the past and sometimes still do, so take my word on this: Eat. What. You. Can. Don't starve yourself. Don't binge. Don't do anything. Keep eating. Your health matters too. You need to find things to do, like hobbies (drawing, reading, writing, ect.) and spend time with friends when you can. At least talk to your friends, don't push them away. They're there for you, even when they might not know how to be. Don't be ashamed to cry, it's perfectly fine too. It's a better alternative of getting things out than a lot of things you could be doing. Do not, under any circumstances, start cutting. Take it from someone who's dealt with it on a personal level in several ways, do not start it. It is not something you "won't get addicted too" and it will not be a "one time thing." Do not try it. Do not start it. Do not try to find "softer" alternatives to cutting. Self-harm is not a fixer, it does not help anything. It isn't something to be ashamed of. It's a personal issue along with mental illness. But it is a very big deal. "And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help?" There isn't always a place to help. Sometimes it won't do the things we wish it would.
