“Stop My Crisis”

Is your insurance giving you a hard time? Is your mortgage through the roof? Is “adulting” just not going well for you? Well, #HipNJ might just have the answer you’re looking for. Vivian Gaspar’s “Stop My Crisis” is your ultimate guide to survival when life just isn’t going right. Gaspar, both an author and producer, paid a visit to the studio to tell us a little more about her book and talk show of the same name.

Of the large selection of crisis topics that she covers, Gaspar said, “There’s something for everyone, including billionaires.”

Impressed with Gaspar’s experience and expertise, co-producer Ron Rossinick, who also came to the studio, reached out to Gaspar in hopes of co-producing the talk show. Gaspar has been involved in television since 2003 while Rossinick has sufficient backgrounds in video production and business, so their abilities came together well. They enjoy the creative freedom and control that comes with co-producing “Stop My Crisis.”

So you want to stop your crisis? You can view “Stop My Crisis” Thursday nights at 10:00 p.m. and Friday mornings at 9:30 a.m. on princetontv.org. The broadcasts are also archived on YouTube, Vimeo and soon on Apple TV.

Making The Hip New Jersey Studio – EPISODE 4

#HipNJ has launched our own mini reality series, Making the Hip New Jersey Studio! The series details our quest to craft the perfect studio setting and getting it to the place where we truly believe that it can be.

We hired New Jersey-based graffiti artist Shawn Mack, who was sent back to the drawing board after showing Lisa his first design plan. Now, he comes back with a new design that Lisa loves and approves.

“In order to create anything on any wall, it starts with a sketch,” Mack explains. He takes us through his creative process, and gets to work on the wall. “You have to come up with your own formula that works best for you,” he says.

Despite the toxic fumes throughout the office, great progress is being made.

Mack runs CreativSite, specializing in creativity and custom design work for interior/exterior, canvas and more. To learn more, check out their website, “like” them on Facebook, and “follow” them on Instagram.

To see what happens next, be sure to stay tuned. New episodes will be released every Wednesday on our official YouTube page.
