For the past several days it's been hotter than FIFTY jalapeño peppers!!!!! If the temperature's 90, the humidity is 190!!!!! It's gotten so hot even I turned on my air conditioner! And, believe me, that's sayin' somethin' 'cause I virtually NEVER turn the dang thing on! As I type, it's off and I'm just sittin' under a ceiling fan. But, if I start to feelin' sweaty, it's comin' back on again! Goodness gracious!!!!!!
Truth be told, I'll take the heat over the cold EVERY day of the freakin' week! Tomorrow, I'm spendin' a LOT of time in a pool! Yep!

Well, tonight kicks off my third year, moderating Q&A screenings at HollyShorts Film Festival. I'll be doin' my thing tonight and tomorrow night. No, I don't have a professional videographer to record me, but I'll hand my phone over to someone in that darn audience and ask them to record me! I hope he/she has a steady hand! :)

Heck, I may even have one of MY short films in it!!!!!!!

As the old saying goes: "Nothing lasts forever." And so it was with D23, the Disney expo that takes place every other year, celebrating everything Disney! I had a blast working the event this year as I did two years ago. In 2015, it's my goal to work the event as the moderator of any number of the event's panel discussions. I've gotta make that happen. SOMEHOW! SOME WAY! And I WILL!

Juan Pablo Galavis
ABC is touting Juan Pablo Galavis as the first NON-WHITE "contestant" on their "reality" show franchise, THE BACHELOR. Non-white??? Really, ABC? Okay, so he's of hispanic descent, fine. But he's a WHITE man of hispanic descent! GIMME A FRIGGIN' BREAK!
If ABC wants to "hire" a non-white contestant, and he has to be hispanic, why not use the services of the fella below. I mean, there'd be absolutely NO arguments about his being NON-WHITE! Geez!

The Dexter Jackson Classic - 8/3/2013
NPC Los Angeles Championships - 7/20/2013
Hey, to my eyes, whether he wins or doesn't win ('cause there's no such thing as "losing" if you dare to participate in anything), he's ALWAYS a WINNER!!! His motto is "Next Level Up." And that's precisely where he's going!
