Andrew J. Lederer

In truth, there are scores of mice in Farmer Al's cartoons (as in other Terrytoons), but they are not mighty. The mightiness is reserved for the more or less human character at their center, not mighty as a character -- he is an oft-besieged man -- but mighty as a star.

One World with Deepak Chopra

Willem Dafoe never set out to be a famous actor; he wasn't a child who dreamed of a place in Hollywood. In fact, growing up, he didn't really have an answer for those who asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up.

Even many of us affected personally went on with life, doing little to ameliorate the suffering of those we loved. My father's lover, Jim Cox, died of AIDS in 1991. Sweet Jim. He gave me ballet lessons each morning when I was living with my father on Sugar Loaf Key in 1986.

These days, aside from writing for The Huff, amongst others, I basically survive on whatever royalties ASCAP's magnanimous computer feels like doling out each month for composing the theme to Jenna Elfman's last, short-lived CBS sitcom. But, life wasn't always this "amazing."

Uloop | Posted 07.16.2014 | College
Uloop

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is an incredible thriller like no other. It's much smaller in scale than its predecessor, but that only allows for it to tell a more intimate story. The political and family drama is intensely engaging and the action-packed climax is the most fun half hour you'll spend at the movies this summer.

I believe we all have much more to contribute than we acknowledge, especially at work. We often hide the best part of ourselves, thinking that no one wants to see who we truly are.
