Bragging rights
I drove my 1989 Nisssn pickup (with over 450K miles on it) all the way to central America with my blind dog. I worked for the sound genius George Massenburg for 4 years (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Massenburg) and met some of my most admired rock stars. I produced a tv pilot that won best comedy, best director, and best actor at the international TV fest in Los Angeles, starring Jay Thomas, Tim Matheson, and Sharon Lawrence.

Great experiment. 
 
Once a group of 50 people was attending a seminar. Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each one a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.

Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.

At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon.
Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.

The speaker began— exactly this is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.

Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness. And this is the purpose of human life.

Please help us spread the word!  This is a grassroots movement and we can use all the help we can get! 
 
Please help the +Unofficial Google+ Film Festival

I've built an amazing event that is available to everyone for free that features +Google+  and I need your help getting the appropriate press so the world will attend and enjoy the festival.

I have included links to two press releases below.  Can you help promote the festival?

I built this festival with a zero budget have worked tirelessly for the last three years to put this all together.  Everyone who has helped has donated their time and expertise for free.  I just don't have the PR team in place to successfully get the word out in time, nor do I have the budget to pay them.  

The year has to be successful in order for me to take this festival to the level that I envision for the future.  If you can please forward this information to your contacts in the press, blogs, radio, television, or even your contacts at Google, I would be very grateful.

Join us as we "Celebrate Cinema With The World"
