...too much fun. In 1906, the Federal Pure Food and Drug Act regulated the distribution of the drug. And in 1970, the Controlled Substance Act made it extremely illegal. When I think of all the great athletes this insidious drug has taken down â€“ guys like Darryl Strawberry, Steve Howe, Hollywood Henderson, Lawrence Taylor (although it never seemed to affect his play), Ken Caminiti, and of course, our good friend Dwight Gooden â€“ it makes me even sicker. Why couldnâ€™t these men have fought off this terrible drug? How could they have let it take over their lives? Those... (more)
EXT. THE PEARLY GATES, HEAVEN - DAY There are a group Catholic priests milling about in front of a pair of very large pearly colored gates. One priest is talking into an intercom attached to the gates. PRIEST #1 "Hello, GOD are you there?" POV OF PRIEST#1 FACE Priest #1 looks to the rest of the group. PRIEST #1 (CONT'D) (uneasy) "There's no answer." WIDE SHOT OF GROUP OF PRIESTS The group looks around, up and down, for a sign of GOD. One priest responds: Priest #2 "For Christ's sake, he's gotta be here, this is Heaven, try it again." Before Priest #1 can try again, there is a booming,... (more)
It was 9:38 in the morning on February 28, 1997 when two gun men marched out of the Bank of America in North Hollywood and rained hellfire upon the LAPD. Larry Eugene Phillips Jr., 26, a former real-estate grifter, and Emil Dechebal Matasareanu, 30, a 283 pound man who suffered from painful seizures, strode out through the glass doors wearing black masks and full black gear over layers of bulletproof armor with numerous belts of ammo around their waists. They brought immediate destruction bullet by bullet to the North Hollywood neighborhood as they fired an estimated 1100 rounds of armor piercing... (more)
It seems that Kermit the Frog was right when he said, â€œItâ€™s not that easy being green.â€ Sunday Nightâ€™s Oscarâ„¢ awards ceremony was lauded by Leonardo DiCaprio as the first ever â€œGreen Oscarsâ„¢â€. Supposedly Hollywood is really into this whole do everything it can to stop global warming. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences even gave the Best Documentary Award to An Inconvenient Truth and Best Original Song to Melissa Etheridgeâ€™s I Need to Wake Up. Perhaps the title of that song is advice that some of Hollywood needs to take itself lest they be labeled â€œhypocritesâ€.... (more)
Hollywood-Cloudy skies greeted me as I awoke on the morning of February 22nd, 2007. This did not put a damper on my plans to attend the special news conference to hear the line-up for the 29th Annual Playboy Jazz Festival.
Invited musicians, media (print, radio, internet and T.V) and music industry representatives were amongst the V.I.P. guest in attendance at the Playboy Mansion for the press conference.
The Hamilton High School Academy of Music directed by Dan Taguchi entertained the crowd with a set of straight-ahead jazz.

... Goreâ€™s crockumentary won the award for best documentary. It was up against a documentary about the war in Iraq â€“ more truthful material was contained in ten seconds of this movie than Al Gore has ever said in his entire life. So, again, why did the movie win the award? Because Hollywood is full of misguided, misinformed miscreants whose job it is to entertain the public â€“ not tell the public how to think or vote. Hollywoodâ€™s sole mission in life right now is to hate George W. Bush. Instead of succeeding at this, Hollywood has only showed itself to be a... (more)

...rooms. #I'm not supposed to deny myself." #Lose 10-pounds in a week!" "Eat all you want and lose weight." "I'm big boned." "Healthy menu options." "Low-Carb." "Low-Fat" "Burn more calories." "All-Natural" "Healthy" "I don't eat that much." "All the stars in Hollywood are doing it." This health crisis is lies agreed upon. As much as I would like to blame the food industry for their sexy commercials about cuisine that one should rarely if never eat, the "forbidden fruit" which has never seen a tree, it's not all their fault. As much as I would like to... (more)
It would seem that there is no longer such a thing as the "Hollywood ending". Unless of course, nervous breakdowns, rehab, suicides, and murders are what's to be aspired to. These days, to sit through Entertainment Tonight or Access Hollywood means exposing yourself to half an hour of dramas and tragedies, as well as the intimate moments of other people's lives. Most recent in the news is the death of model and actress Anna Nicole Smith, who gained notoriety by marrying a man fifty years her senior. Although Anna Nicole had given birth to a baby girl this year, an event that causes great joy... (more)
Following on the heels of Hell, Johnny Blaze roars into the box office with over 52 million over the four day President's Day weekend. Despite being panned by critics, the comic-book adaption "Ghost Rider", starring Nicholas Cage and Eva Mendes, was fireproof, helping Hollywood out of a box office slump with overall revenues burning up for the first time in six weeks. "Ghost Rider" delivered Hollywood's biggest opening so far this year, topping the $34.2 million debut for "Norbit." "Ghost Rider" was the best opening weekend ever for Cage, beating the $35.1 million debut of "National Treasure."... (more)
