I never saw B.B. King perform live or ever met him in person, yet I carry with me a lesson that he taught me many years ago. What B.B. taught me is that it is not so much talent that lifts us up, but rather it is the story of our "inner man" and character that ultimately defines us.
I am honored to present exclusive audio of a Q&A with Citizenfour Director Laura Poitras, which took place as part of the Talking Pictures program at the 2015 Palm Springs International Film Festival.
"Should one be so lucky to find something they are good at, then pursue it with full passion, man." Spot-on advice from one of the world's most sought-after producers Daniel Lanois, who forwards wisdom from the legendary Brian Eno.
Everybody is equal and you are not supposed to ever make anybody feel that he/she is worth less than you. If you are able to look at everyone with love, the butterfly effect will start to work, and you will be making a difference.
The incomparable Betty White was honored over the weekend with a lifetime achievement award at the Daytime Emmys. And what a lifetime it has been. Her career started in 1939, she won her first Emmy in 1952, and she is still working regularly today.
While We're Young follows in the footsteps of the majority of Baumbach's work, as it succeeds admirably in achieving its apparent goal of being yet another terrifically mediocre film.

Still Alice is not a public health poster. It is the powerful story of a young, smart, witty, vivacious, and beautiful Columbia University linguistics professor.
A few years ago I worked on a project that was tied to Days of Our Lives. For those of you who grew up with soap operas (or maybe still try to catch them from time to time) you know that this show has been on the air for 50 years.
Having been an acting and success coach for the past 28 years, I've noticed that people, now more than ever, are confusing a dream with a wish. There is a BIG difference. It's like night and day.
An authentic artist creates beauty that lifts us up to the highest within us. The Creativity of such an artist comes from his or her connection to the Divine Source, which is therefore able to make a truly constructive contribution to humanity.
Mary Lambert isn't just open about being a lesbian. One spin of plucky single "Secrets" lays bare the singer/songwriter's struggles with weight, bipolar disorder, a dysfunctional family and much, much more. Says Lambert with a laugh, "I'm severely out!"
I caught up with Alex some three months ago on the cusp of "the awards show season."
I'd like to be Ariana Grande's puppy, if only for a day. I first saw Sirius Black on Ariana's Instagram, a big-eyed mixed breed adopted bouncing ball of curly black fur, ensconced in a soft tan leather seat on a private jet.
