Hello and welcome to The Aidan Mack Show!

I’m Aidan Mack, your host here! It’s great to have you all here today.

I hope all the viewers at home had a wonderful Halloween, I know I did!

You know the “Queen of Halloween” aka supermodel Heidi Klum. She is a Halloween Fanatic! Every year, she gets really creative and goes all out for her Halloween costumes. Over the years, her outrageous costumes have made their mark in history.

(picture appears on wall of Heidi Klum in 3 different costumes side by side)

Look at these pictures. These are just some of her costumes. How awesome?!

First you have, her head to toe gold costume! So cool! Then you have, her cadaver costume. You know the Human Body Exhibit where there are displays of people without any skin. You can literally see every vein and every layer of muscle. It’s a real trip! If you haven’t g one, I suggest you do! Anyway, the exhibit inspired her costume and she killed it!

Also, that one year she was Ironman, walking around like the boss that she is!

She really goes above and beyond when it comes to her Halloween costumes!

(A picture appears on wall of Heidi Kulm dressed in a Jessica Rabbit costume)

And one of my personal all-time favorite! Is when she dressed up as Jessica Rabbit. OMG. She looked perfect. When I saw her, my eyes jumped out of my head. I couldn’t believe it; she was a dead ringer for Jessica Rabbit as you all see in the picture! Amazing, right?

(A picture appears on wall of Heidi Klum dressed as the forbidden fruit — an apple)

And also, I have another personal favorite. The Forbidden Fruit. She was dressed in an apple costume, and during this time she was pregnant. She was smart using an apple to hide the baby bump, and it had a snake wrapped around it! How amazing does she look? You couldn’t even tell she was pregnant in this photo; her pregnancy was hidden here! Might be something you would consider when you’re pregnant and not sure what to wear for Halloween. Maybe be an Apple?

Throughout this year I was dying to know what she was going to dress up as for Halloween this year….

Wait….something evil is lurking and it’s night time…OHHHH MYY A WEREWOLF.

(A picture appears on wall of Heidi Klum dressed as a werewolf wearing jeans with a red and yellow letterman jacket and werewolf mask)

CHECK THIS OUT! UNREAL SHE LOOKS JUST LIKE ONE. Look at this makeover, definitely took hours to get this look. Looks awesome! It must be nice to be able to afford that!

Thank you for watching my show! Before we wrap up I just want to say thank you to Casey and Domenick for interpreting for me.

Thanks guys!

(The two interpreters appear signing, “Thank you, Bye!” (music fades)

The Aidan Mack Show logo appears again. (dark blue and black background) with a cartoon figure of Aidan Mack in a black dress and heels holding up the ASL hand shape for ‘I Love You,’ standing next to three shopping bags (pink, blue, and yellow) lined up in size order with the website: www.aidanmack.com below.)

(A white screen with social media websites appears directly after.)

My heartfelt for Tribeca…

Hello, and welcome to The Aidan Mack Show!

I’m Aidan Mack, your host.

It’s great to have you all back with us for another episode.

I wanted to start todays show with something enlightening, however, I think it is important to shed some light on a tragic event that recently took place in New York City, a city that is dear to my heart.

A tragic event happened at a downtown Manhattan bike path, located in Tribeca, which also happens to be a place where I often ride my bike from the Bronx to Brooklyn.

I love this beautiful route is because there is so much to take in. There are several bars and restaurants as well as areas to people watch and sunbathe.

This area has so much to offer. It’s a great place to bike, go for a run, walk, or even rollerblade through.  Overall, its a great place for outdoor fun and relaxation.

However, I can’t believe this man. Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov (say-fullo sai-puv) made the terrible choice of getting into a rented Home Depot truck and actually running over pedestrians.  8 people were killed, and 11 were injured riding down a bicycle path. I mean c’mon, really? I’m devastated by this news and even more-so because it happened on Halloween. My heart is torn by this.

Of those effected by this tragedy, 6 people were visiting from Argentina for a high school reunion. 5 were murdered, and 1 person survived. Imagine being the 1 survivor and realizing all 5 of your friends were murdered during a vacation.

Just imagine going through that or being in the survivor’s shoes. This is truly horrific.

I thought it was really nice that the President of Uzbekistan,

———-pause———-

Shavkat Mirziyoyev (shav-kat Mirz-yo-yev), good luck to my interpreters on pronouncing that one. Anyway, he took the time to address the tragedy.  He stated that he would be there by all means necessary to support and work closely with the United States in matters regarding this case.

Imagine a bike path that you used to feel safe on, without a worry in the world. I never had the thought of being injured or killed cross my mind. But now, it is a place that gives people who used to ride along, walk, or run the path an uneasy feeling.  Its unfortunate that it has become an unsafe area. But again it is up to us as New Yorkers to not let this tragedy define us, but to reclaim the safety of a place we all enjoy.

I want to send my….strength. My… that light within me to all of you. And again, my strength.  By strength I mean support, encouragement, and all of my positivity to you, the families, the friends, the survivors never give up and keep pushing.  I know a lot has changed since Halloween and many of you will never look at October 31st the same.   We’re all here to support you and we’re behind you every step of the way.

Thank you for watching my show. Before we wrap up, thanks again to my interpreters, Casey and Domenick for their interpretation and imagine what they had to go through with the pronunciation of these names.  Ugh, I feel for them. And that’s a wrap!

Every year I dress up and celebrate this spooky celebration. This year I had a list of food and stories and video for Halloween, but I never got to them because … I been so busy focusing on my show and my projects. I know! I got it, folks – that I need to balance my personal and professional life. I am working on it. Trust me.

So, sorry to have been away from this website for such a long time. My intention is to keep it filled to overflowing with projects, ideas, information, entertainment, inspiration, and reflection.

Since The Aidan Mack show moved to a different location from White Plains to Manhattan, I’ve had to devote more time to set things in motion and get my new show up to snuff. I want it to be the same high quality that made you fans in the first place. Things are coming along and I’ll keep you posted about airing times, but in the meantime, I intend to stay in touch through this website sharing information and experiences with you all.

While waiting for my show to be greenlighted, I decided that I will go ahead and set up a mini studio at my home so I can video myself with a nice background and share information, news, and tips without pausing. It will be like a friendly visit. As the old song says, “Come on a my house,” until we can get the studio version up and running. It’s exciting to watch this project grow, and although it is just beginning to bud right now, I know it will soon be a garden in full blossom, and you’ll be there to enjoy it.

There are two projects I have been working on: 1) set up a foundation and 2) stage a fundraising event.

With the foundation, I have board members and we have our bylaws. I also wrote the business plan. The only thing I need to do now is find someone to help fill out the forms. It requires a lot paperwork to get this non-profit activated. It is so complicated to fill these out and it is important to make sure the information is accurate. The process is time consuming and expensive, but I have every faith that I can bring to fruition. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

Meetings are underway and my committees are getting together to do fantastic work. We’ve decided on a two-year plan to reach our goals. I am gratified with their interest and their passion. Think good thoughts for us. We are willing to do the work, we have the inspiration, now a prayer or two might help.

With closing, I will commit to writing and posting video on my website once or twice a week from now on. If I am busy, please know that I am out there trying to make a difference or doing something that I hope will benefit you all in the future. You know I hate excuses, so there will be no excuse for me not to write or post a video.
