You are “On-Demand”

Breaking news…the world’s gone digital and it includes you! To in part quote Francis Ford Coppola, “…digital technology will allow 200 million people to tell their story…but unfortunately we’ll have 200 million bad stories.” Now, that is not a direct quote, but it is the basic point of that quote by Mr. Coppola over a […]

Get yer money right!

Ha…this is phrase used by Chris Rock in one of his stand-up routines…and I do LOVE me some Chris Rock. However, in this context, my point while related to Mr. Rock’s routine is much more about the health of your mentality and your day to day experience “while pursuing” a performance career. You see I’m […]

Friends of friends of friends…!

No this is not a Blog about your Facebook page or how many friends you have. It is, however, about the concept of the degrees of separation we laughingly fool around with in terms of Kevin Bacon and how we often view our “place” within our given location and being important to that domain based […]

Living it…forward!

All of my December blogs have a crossover feel to them and touch on similar concepts and subjects because this is the annual time of reflection, projected change and the New Year…YOU.

But allow […]

Passion doesn’t have to equal Profession!

At the end of the year, this may be the most important Blog you’ll ever read, both for your sanity and your lifestyle. You see, I too sat one day in a theatre alone watching a movie and said to myself, yep that is what I’m going to do. It was a huge life and […]

A Marianne Williamson New Year!

So at this point in the later part of January you’re finally getting “settled in” to the New Year. The Holidays are truly over, you’ve gotten back to town, maybe you’ve gotten rid of a few Holiday eating pounds, you’re officially back into your routine or whatever you call…

20 yrs. and 87 No’s: What’s your beef?

Labor of love. Passion, persistence, focus, vigor and purpose. These are all words and a concept we’ve been told for decades, centuries etc. etc. They sound great in a blog, in a movie, in a book, in a poem or a speech…but what are they really like…in the truth of life?

Why TV is now like Major League Baseball!

Now of course this will take a moment or two to clarify because many folks reading this may or may not understand the analogy right off the bat, because I do not presume that everyone knows…the backbone of baseball. But once you understand it, then I know you’ll
