On a Scale of 1-10, You're a Windows 98

(Sure, Pokémon Go has unveiled a buddy system, but who's yet to have one? Why it's................Ingress. They've yet to have to have a buddy, but your buddy is your friends on chat. Isn't that nice?)

VO: This is GSN The Know. The most informed and entertained blog in the United States of America. Now, from the WIlton-North building, here is the man about games, Pierre Kelly.

Me: Hello my Sqramble heads, don't you be no Scuare, because your computer or mobile device is in the right placer at the right time. This is GSN The Know. A twofer-one punch that's a stealer to other blogs that may lack the spontaneity. Add in a doubler of sass and a double doubler of information and you got a blog you just can't Let the cube rotate as we start with......

 The Starting Line.

Window Warriors is a little more than 2 months away. With Carson Kressley being a judge, Tai Beauchamp and Douglas Little will join the panel. Of course, Garcelle Beauvais will be the host, but we unveiled the contestants who'll be the.....Window Warriors. Here they come.....

Brittany Bush (27, Long Beach, CA) – Young, fearless, and already making waves in the industry, Brittany serves as a Visual Merchandiser in Los Angeles. Educated at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, she has experience in all kinds of mediums, from metal to resin, clay to rubber, wood and vinyl, to cork, glass, cement and brick. Brittany shines in her calculated mix of art and commerce, knowing that ultimately it’s her job to make the customer leave with product in their bag.
Edward Sajovic (32, Cleveland, OH) – Educated in visual display and exhibition design at The Fashion Institute of New York, and visual merchandising and marketing at The Laboratory Institute of Merchandising, Sajovic is a seasoned designer and artist with over 12 years of experience creating displays for high-end, luxury retailers. A self-professed “creative Craft-a-rella extraordinaire,” his tools of choice are glue guns, spray paint and glitter.
Erin O’Brien (41, New York, NY) – A stylist and window artist who has worked as a Window Artist, Prop Stylist and Prop Master for windows on New York’s 5th Avenue, as well as ad campaigns and e-Commerce, Erin is an energetic and experienced Display Artist who loves building windows that feature movement and small touches that make a statement. Her attention to intricate detail leaves the customer looking closer - making them think a little more than usual.  Trained by the Visual Image Team at the House of Chanel in Paris, her 20-year fashion industry experience has spanned a variety of major retailers. 
Gerardo Mellado (25, Guaynabo, Puerto Rico) – Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Gerardo moved to New York to pursue education and a career as an Exhibition Designer at the Fashion Institute of Technology. After graduation, he was hired as the Visual Coordinator for Armani Exchange, overseeing 200 stores worldwide and now serves as the Visual Procurement Manager for a large department store chain in New York. Gerardo enjoys telling a story through the unexpected - mixing old and new media, textures, and graphics for that “ah-ha” moment.
Shani Coleman (37, New Orleans, LA) -  A creative “jack of all trades,” Shani thrives in challenging environments that push her to create designs that are both captivating to the customer and brand relevant. Trained at Syracuse University in Fashion Retailing and Design Operations, she has worked in visual merchandising for a variety of retailers and is known for a fashion forward aesthetic which shines through in all of her work.
Spenser Zalkin (28, Carmel, IN) – With no formal training, Zalkin came into visual merchandising after impressing a department store manager while working at the company’s espresso bar. Formerly Director for Holiday Visual at The Plaza Hotel and now serving as a Visual Stylist for a large department store, he has a vast amount of experience in interior remodels, styling, pop up shops, floor sets, interior design, and fashion shows. He describes his design aesthetic as haberdashery with a twist, relishing in taking unexpected elements and having them interact with the mannequins.
Tara Meagher (26, San Anselmo, CA) – Tara has been focused on a career in visual merchandising since her teens and worked as an intern at Anthropologie while taking classes at a community college.  Upon realizing her life’s passion, she left college early and began working full-time for the retailer, quickly moving up through the company to become a Visual Display Coordinator and then a Visual Manager at Free People. She enjoys creating organic compositions and isn’t afraid to incorporate unusual elements, like repurposing old coffee pots to create a unique water fountain display.
Timothy Howe (49, Los Angeles, CA) – A self-taught “visual ninja” with a background in fine art, Timothy can do it all: designing, painting, sewing, drawing, building, sculpting, woodworking and styling. He began his professional career at Anthropologie in Chicago and has worked with a variety of retailers, eventually rising to the position of Visual Director. He enjoys constructing the props and styling his windows, infusing a bit of levity and surprise in his designs whenever possible.
Those are the Window Warriors and we can't wait to see what November has come premiere time.
On the way, Twitter changes it's GSN banner tune. That and the first 3 letters of the Circle K home scramble......after the break.
(song fades out)

(Quick fade out)
So we're back, but the other 3 letters of the Circle K home scramble will be during the 2nd intermission, but for now, on with the blog.
Twitter said adios to Winsanity and Hello to......Skin Wars. That's because Winsanity did premiere three months ago (to the date). Second, Winsanity ratings have been mixed, more bad than good.

The latest, colorful poster features Rebeeca Romijn, RuPaul, Ben Gleib, Donald Faison and the Soska sisters. There you have Skin Wars, Skin Wars: Fresh Paint, Idiotest, Winsanity and Hellevator. Although Skin Wars has not yet been renewed, this is a strong sign GSN has interest and that new episodes of both Skin Wars and Skin Wars: Fresh Paint will be back on GSN in 2017. Odd one out: Window Warriors. It will come day.
One report praises Idiotest as a game that confuses the smart people and the smart alike. This is why many game shows have stupid moments that will end up on Youtube.
Did you know that the host of Catch 21 is very rich? Well, this and 4 other facts prove it in this article.
Now the 2nd intermission presented by I feel good for fall season....don't you? Maybe this from our GTK gypsy quen Robyn Cage would help.
And what else feels good? The 3rd period.
Something is wrong with Buzzr. They're moving to Canada.......or is it? For that, we turn to the Password pediatrician, Dr. Buzzr.

VO: Dr. Buzzr is a graduate of Maple Heights Community College with a degree in game show classics. He is a lecturer in and around the Grimsborough area and contributed to many in the field of self-help for and He's been interviewed on many podcasts and has yet to appear in TV talk shows and daytime network morning shows. Dr. Buzzr is not an actual doctor, nor a Ph.D., in fact, he doesn't play one on TV. He's simply a game show fanatic who is a member of the Stephanie Thorpe foundation for New Media Excellence, the national Game & Reality foundation and the Stan Lee writers club. And now, coming from his office on the 6th floor of the Wilton-North building....Dr. Buzzr.
(song fades out)
Dr. Buzzr: Thank you Pierre Kelly. Buzzr isn't moving to Canada, however, FremantleMedia North America-backed digital multi-cast network Buzzr has expanded into the Canadian market by partnering with a local broadcaster.
Buzzr will provide a three-hour weekly programming block for Yes TV’s weekday mornings between 01.00 am and 04.00 am, starting today.

Me: I thank you for that kind report.

And it's all solved. Just a reminder that Nelly is in a 2-million dollar debt. I will extend the gratitude by downloading the Spotify app on Android and Apple Ios and play his song "Hot in Herre" to help pay it all off. Together, we will make a difference.
Don't forget to email me at,, Pierre Jason Kelly on FB and @Johnny_Arcade on twitter. Also I'm on Snapchat as MisterGSN and Instagram as Mister_WCW. We will return next Wednesday, and until we return, Play on playas.
