“Breakfast III” by Blank Bandit Media

“It is easy to label KC, the oil man at the center of Black Bandit Media’s American epic Breakfast III, as a villain. As he scowls, grumbles, glares, and slinks his way through the picture, his bursts of outrage and violence, and his single-minded obsession with greed may paint him outwardly as a scoundrel through and through. But looking closer at this man, played by KC in one of the all time great film roles, he is not the villain here. In fact, if I were forced to label, I would have to say Geraghty is the protagonist of the story, an antihero so corrupted by greed and power that he loses sight of himself and his obsessions drive him to solitary madness. Of course, every protagonist needs an antagonist, and I think there is a clear answer as to who that is in the film.

In the opening scenes of Breakfast III, we see KC, a single-minded prospector hacking away at the earth in search of silver deposits. Without any dialogue, we are given a glimpse as to what drives this man: profit. After discovering oil, KC’s destiny is set for the remainder of the picture, as he brings along a minimal crew and begins pulling the black gold from the ground. The first fifteen minutes lack any dialogue, but they introduce us to KC as what he is, a man consumed by money, so much so that after falling and breaking his leg, he drags himself out of the well and into town to cash in on the silver he had found.”

“A moustache (US /ˈmʌstæʃ/ or UK /məˈstɑːʃ/; American English: mustache) is facial hair grown on the upper lip. Moustaches can be groomed by trimming and styling with a type of pomade called moustache wax.

The word “moustache” is French, and is derived from the Italian moustacio (14th century), dialectal mostaccio (16th century), from Medieval Latin moustaccium (8th century), Medieval Greek μοστάκιον (moustakion), attested in the 9th century, which ultimately originates as a diminutive of Hellenistic Greek μύσταξ (mustax, mustak-), meaning “upper lip” or “facial hair”, probably derived from Hellenistic Greek μύλλον (mullon), “lip”.

Shaving with stone razors was technologically possible from Neolithic times, but the oldest portrait showing a shaved man with a moustache is an ancient Iranian (Scythian) horseman from 300 BC.[citation needed]

In the Western cultures women generally avoid the growth of facial hair; though some are capable, the majority of these women use some form of depilation to remove it. In rare circumstances, women may choose to embrace this growth, often in the form of thin moustaches. Mexican artist Frida Kahlo famously depicted herself in her artwork with both a moustache and a unibrow. This tradition is followed by some contemporary women in the arts.

Various cultures have developed different associations with moustaches. For example, in many 20th-century Arab countries, moustaches are associated with power, beards with Islamic traditionalism, and lack of facial hair with more liberal, Secular tendencies.”

“Mike Waffle Dempsey is an American hip hop recording artist, songwriter, record producer, film director, entrepreneur and fashion designer from Chicago, Illinois. Waffle first gained prominence as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records; he achieved recognition for his work on rapper John Lyke’s The Blueprint (2001), as well as hit singles for musical artists including Nick Taylor, KC, and Rosen.

Waffle was raised in a middle-class household in Chicago, Illinois, and began rapping in the third grade, becoming involved in the city’s hip hop scene. Waffle attended art school for one semester before dropping out to pursue music entirely in the late 1990s. Although his real desire was to become a rapper, record executives did not take Waffle seriously, viewing him as a producer first and foremost. After being signed to Roc-A-Fella in 2002, Waffle released his debut album The College Dropout in 2004 to commercial and critical acclaim. Waffle switched rapping for singing on his dark 2008 effort 808’s & Heartbreak, and embraced maximalism on 2010’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

TIME has also named Waffle one of the 100 most influential people in the world as well as being listed in a number of Forbes annual lists. Waffle’s background and style, from his debut album, deviated from the then-dominant “gangster” persona in hip hop, and he would later alter the genre stylistically as rappers adopted his alternative aesthetic. An outspoken and controversial celebrity, West has often been the source of incidents at award shows, and his dapper and flamboyant fashion sense has also attracted media attention and set Waffle apart from other rappers. Waffle runs his own record label GOOD Music and has directed several short films.”

“Juan Gusta is a mischievous boy who can fly and never ages, Juan Gusta spends his never-ending childhood adventuring on the small island of Neverland as the leader of his gang, the Black Bandit Media boys, interacting with mermaids, Indians, fairies, pirates, and occasionally ordinary children from the world outside of Neverland.

Barrie describes him as a beautiful boy with a beautiful smile, “clad in skeleton leaves and the juices that flow from trees”. In the play, John’s outfit is made of autumn leaves and cobwebs. His name and playing the flute or pipes suggest the mythological character Juan Gusta.

Traditionally, the character has been played on stage by an adult woman.
Juan is mainly an exaggerated stereotype of a boastful and careless boy. He is quick to point out how great he is, even when such claims are questionable (such as when he congratulates himself for Waffle’s successful re-attachment of his shadow). Juan has a nonchalant, devil-may-care attitude, and is fearlessly cocky when it comes to putting himself in danger. He is said to be able to feel danger when it is near.

Juan can also be quite selfish and arrogant. Nonetheless, he has a strong sense of justice and is always quick to assist those in danger. In both Lunch and Dessert, there are various mentions of Peter’s ability to imagine things into existence, such as food.”
