At dinner last night, my good friend Bruce Buffer was telling me that he had Jean Claude Van Damme, the "muscles from Brussels" on his Podcast.
Roland Dupree wasn't a household name. But "legendary" fits. As a performer, a teacher and as a real life success story, he deserves to be remembered and honored among Hollywood's greatest not only because of what he accomplished, but how he accomplished it.
I love passionate people. I am inspired by people who fly without a net, who would rather perish than compromise their integrity and devotion, who do not cease from exploration, who do not have a Plan B.
Creative writing is easy, and anyone can do it. All you have to do is follow these simple steps.
We open with Shawn going to Kaitlyn's hotel room to ask if she loves him, and she says she's falling in love with him, after giving him a look like, "Um, the producers told you not to ask me that."

"PlantPure Nation" presents a compelling case and offers a simple solution to pervasive health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and obesity. This film is part of a grassroots movement that will hopefully inspire people to make healthier, scientifically based decisions about how they fuel their bodies.
I don't want the Grateful Dead to mean anything beyond the moment in which I listen. I don't want the music to do anything other than unroll itself into present time, to happen, while I am lucky enough to be there.

Inside Out is a wall-to-wall wonder, good news for anyone who despaired that the animation studio, Pixar -- after numerous missteps -- had lost its mojo, and who, frankly, would've rejoiced in any glimmer of the ol' Pixar verve now.
