You know what sucks about the number of entertainers who died this year? I FORGOT SID CAESAR DIED THIS YEAR. Good Lord. And this group of six is just comedians. Lauren Bacall and Shirley Temple aren't even on it. Good riddance, 2014.

From Patton Oswalt: "I sat down and talked with Judd Apatow, Aidy Bryant, Nicole Holofcener, Jim Norton, Todd Glass and Maria Bamford about the 6 comedians we lost this past year. And this year was especially rough because, as awful as it is to lose a friend and colleague, this year we lost people who permanently changed what it is we all do. If we'd JUST lost Mike Nichols, OR Harold Ramis OR Joan Rivers? Any of those, alone? THAT would be awful enough. But to lose them AND Robin Williams AND Jan Hooks (who is in the pantheon with Dan Aykroyd, Phil Hartman and Will Ferrell) AND Sid Caesar? It's too much, sometimes. These people always helped when it became too much. I start to lose it at the 6:41 mark, and it seems like I recover. The editor deserves some kind of award because, in the actual conversation? I lost it. Completely lost it." #PattonOswalt   #comedy   #comedians   #NYTimes   #NYTMagazine   #NewYorkTimes   #NewYorkTimesMagazine   #RIP   #entertainment   #laughter   #grief   #tears   #sadness   #RobinWilliams   #JoanRivers   #SNL   #AidyBryant   #JanHooks   #SidCaesar   #ToddGlass   #MikeNichols   #MariaBamford   #HaroldRamis   #JuddApatow   #JimNorton   #podcast   #podcasts   #podcasting  #brilliance

This is very disheartening. Not only do we all have to worry seriously about the flu now, this means fewer people will have the confidence to get the vaccine next year, and the anti-vaccine crowd just got a nice big gift, tied with a gold bow. I wish they could get it together on this. Figure out how to produce it faster, so it can go into production later and they have more time to make sure they get it right? #flu   #vaccine   #FluVaccine   #FluShot   #vaccines   #VaccinesWork   #VaccinateYourKids   #medicine   #health   #science   #BadNews   #CDC

(Image from Veronica Rutledge's Facebook profile). The automatic reaction to the tragic story of the woman shot by her two year old son in Walmart would be to assume extreme stupidity on the part of the mother. If you were unaware of the story, 29 year old Veronica Rutledge was shot dead by her ...

Blogger & Social Media Consultant
Introduction

I am a writer with eclectic taste who has loved writing since I was a small child. I have extensive experience with writing non-fiction, including marketing copy for blogs, marketing copy crafted into tweets, heavily researched editorials and media criticism for my own blog, how-to columns, product reviews, recipes and more. I write freelance expository articles and editorials for the web, most notably for Textbroker.comGather.com, and private clients.

I worked for a year as the primary public relations representative for a local entertainment company in upstate New York, ADHD Entertainment, LLC. This involved using multiple social media platforms to promote the brand and its artists; this included ghostwriting tweets. I have experience running PR & social media for a financial blog as well, and have recently re-connected with ADHD Entertainment to copyedit and help ghostwrite a series of memoirs, among other projects including some modeling.

I am a May 2008 college graduate and am already published across the web, and I am looking forward to expanding my writing career, particularly on the Internet. I love news and media and I make sure to pay attention and read all different styles of writing with an open mind. I run a community center for the children of Baby Boomers, known as Generation XYZ, which combines blogs, discount shopping, business opportunity, entertainment and non-profits. Through the Twitter account associated with this company, I have created social media buzz and helped raise funds for pre-eminent non-profit organizations such as Doctors without Borders (Médicins sans Frontières), Baby Buggy, and charity: water.

My Bachelor’s degree is a Bachelor of Arts in English with a concentration in Rhetoric (and a minor in Theatre) from Binghamton University. Follow me on Twitter @TheGrottoTweets.
