Come December 12th, Frank Sinatra would have celebrated his 100th birthday! An amazing singer who left a great body of work.

I'm in with this film. It's the first look at Jason Momoa of Game of Thrones, as Aquaman. In the comics, Aquaman was a founding member of the Justice League. Arthur, King of Atlantis, rules Earth's oceans, has super-strength and can talk with sea life.

And of course you have complaints that this is not the Aquaman fanboys are accustomed to. But Director Zack Snyder is going for a more gritty, dark, foreboding bad-ass feel and that's just fine with me. If Momoa doesn't embody that look, I really don't know who would.

Now a public park, the stone-faced Tudor mansion is a palace of dreams and illusions that was once the site of a double murder, involving one of the city's most prominent families.

“Hold fast to dreams
for if dreams die
life is a broken-winged bird
that can not fly.

Hold fast to dreams
for when dreams go
life is a barren field
frozen with snow.” 
― Langston Hughes, The Collected Poems

This article about the state of Black affairs is spot on!
We haven’t properly used our vast resources to remedy race-specific problems.

The tortured and haunting song “Take Me To Church,”coupled with the choreography by Jade Hale-Christofi, guides Sergei Polunin through a  series of furious ballet moves as if he's in simpatico with the pain in Hozier’s voice. David LaChapelle is brilliant in his artistry.The entire performance was a visual revelation.

#gigamansions #beverlyhills #belaire
This is hilarious to me. Multimillionaires fighting with billionaires over 20,000 - 90,000 sqft behemoths. I'm sorry, but I fail to see how the average person will have any sympathy about their stress, "invasion of privacy" and sleepless nights. This is what you call people who are painfully out of touch with real life. First World, 1% problerms!!!! Next! SMH!!!!!
Residents are squaring off against real estate developers over new, extravagant homes in Bel Air and Beverly Hills.

#50shadesofgreymovie   #jamiedornandakotajohnson  
For the life of me, I cannot understand why women would support a film that shows a man degrading, abusing and raping a woman. Please explain how that's erotic, romantic and sexy? Out in the real world, if Christian Grey were a real person, he would be part sociopath, psychopath and sexual predator. How on EARTH is someone like Grey the stuff dreams are made of when a woman wants a loving relationship!?!?!?! The more women try to move forward, along comes something like 50 Shades of Grey that proves we still have some within our ranks who are dragging us down with the weight of their utter cluelessness and stupidity. I read the book at the urging of my friends and trust me, I will never take their advice again. I screened the film a while back because of what I do for a living. And I knew from the very beginning when the film was released, it would be a blockbuster. Not because it's a great cinematic marvel or the acting is spectacular, but because of all the oversexualization, misogyny and blatant disrespect women are subjected to on a daily basis in one medium or another, some women have no idea what a truly great relationship looks like and many equate pain and abuse to love. They've become desensitized and complacent. Yes many say it's just a film, but there's a larger problem that needs to be addressed - - physical, mental and sexual abuse should never be accepted on-screen, on TV or in real life. Period, end of story.
“Fifty Shades of Grey” is not only heating up screens across North America, but lighting a fire under its competition as well. The Universal drama opened to $30.2 million on Friday on its way to a ...

#dumbassparents   #freerangeparenting  
Yeah and these parents have just told every pervert pedophile that they allow their kids to roam free unsupervised. No wonder some kids grow up to be incompetent, they were raised by incompetent parents. No 10 year old should be supervising his/her 6 year old sibling walking a mile away. Neither of them are capable enough to defend themselves from an adult(s). This is not about being a helicopter parent, nanny states or government intervention, this is about parents using common sense and obviously some of these so-called "free-range" parents are as dumb as a box of rocks. I don't care how many degrees they have. If they aren't going to look out for the overall safety of their kids, then they have left no other alternative but for someone else to do it for them. And if, God forbid, something happens to their children, they'll be in front of the media, crying and looking dumbfounded yelping about how could this have happened. There are no redo's when tragedy strikes. And to use a straw man's argument about what people did back in the day, means nothing regarding the society we live in TODAY!
An agency is investigating after parents allowed their kids, ages 6 and 10, to walk home from a park.

Happy MLK Day Everyone! With all of the police brutality, discourse, unrest and divisiveness, remember Martin Luther King's message of peace, equality, unity and opportunity for all. Don't allow the dream of this remarkable, iconic man to die. Keep thriving for success, keep pushing forward toward the mountaintop. It's within sight, we simply must concentrate our efforts and gain the strength to do what's necessary to get there.

Introduction
I want to build my media and entertainment empire before I have to start wearing adult diapers.
Bragging rights
Something crazy always comes out of my mouth and I have the ability to make people feel better because of it. I can even walk and chew gum at the same time...go figure! I was recently given the Commanders Award , Recognition of Excellence from the University of Southern California Trojan Battalion. We filmed their Ranger Challenge, documented what it takes to become an officer in the US Army. We were right there in the rain, cold and mud with the officers in training. What a memorable shoot and experience.

Overnight service was paid for. So I waited all day and no UPS. On-line it said that the package was out for delivery. Then I called around 6:30 and got a rep and they said it would be delivered tonight, Tuesday 1/8/15. Then around 7:30 pm. I spoke with a so-called supervisor and he called this deplorable center on Blaine Street where the package was coming from and he said the driver had the package and that it would be delivered tonight. Well, the office is closed and if they don't have my code or telephone number, how they going to get in. He then told me that I should wait outside for an undetermined amount of time for the driver. Now I'm furious. I called back to speak with a another supervisor and he called this Blaine Street location and they told him that the package wouldn't be delivered tonight but would be delivered tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon between 2:30 and 6:30 pm. They expected me to waste another day. So I called back a 3rd time and spoke with a supposed female supervisor, she called this Blaine Street center and spoke with Wes and he told her that the package would be delivered on Wednesday too and there was no way I could get the package in the morning after it was their screw up. UPS is the absolute WORST delivery service you can possibly use and don't use them if at all possible. They lie, they give misinformation both on the phone and on-line, their customer service is atrocious and they absolutely DO NOT stand by their guarantees of on-time delivery and overnight service. DONE with them for good.!

The Next Door Lounge is a nice little gem that's quite nondescript from the street, however once inside, you are pleasantly surprised at the sheer enormity of the interior. The service is great, the food is very good but one thing, we went on a night when the band was playing completely random and vulgar music. Profanities spewing like liquid and because the atmosphere is circa 1920's speakeasy, we were all wondering what was that about??? It was definitely not the establishment's finest moment. Other than that incident, I would highly recommend The Next Door Lounge because it was a treat to have fun at a place that wasn't formulaic and boring.

Three times in a row, the number 7 passed my stop and didn't pick us up. They arbitrarily pass one stop, then stop at another. I teach special courses at the college level sometimes and 3 times I was at the stop in more than enough time, but 3 times now I was late to class. This madness has to stop. I have reported this and nothing has changed. You cannot and must not operate a bus service like this and think people are just going to continue to take it. The representative I spoke with before, acknowledged that many people have complained about the number 7 on Pico, but offered no solution, no compensation, no call-back from a supervisor as I requested...nothing. And don't get me started on those nasty, unfriendly, vitriolic drivers. If they don't want the job, then there are 1000's of people out there who would be glad to take their place. When my husband and I first moved to LA years ago, the number 7 was a dream line and we were used to taking public transportation because we're from the East Coast. But when some suit at their headquarters decided to screw around with the line, it's been a nightmare. They cut back on the number 7 as if everyone is within walking distance to the Rapid 7. And that is ridiculous in itself. There have been many occasions when the Rapid 7, was either almost empty or slightly full. The geniuses decided that the people who exclusively ride the number 7 didn't need as much service. Isn't it always some fool who doesn't know what they're talking about because they don't ride the bus. I had to walk back to my home and get my car on more than several occasions because the number 7 is unreliable.
