Holy Shit! World Premiere of WHEN I SING. Part 2: Thank you Robin Russin
One week from today, my life’s story, WHEN I SING, made with my life’s savings, and a lot of help from my friends (sing that line like Ringo), will premiere at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival. Hoo Ha. (And my jaw is clinched at 5 am as I write). How self-absorbed is it, when […]

GRAMMY MEMBERS RESPECTFULLY SIGN PETITION FOR TRANSPARENCY.
“I’d like to thank the members of the Academy”, is generally how one’s acceptance speech begins in all of these award shows. But which members of the academy, (who all pay their dues) are they thanking? Is the awards process a democracy? How do they choose from the thousands of brilliant and not so brilliant […]

Grammy’s change the rules again…because of the way James Comey treated Hillary Clinton.
As Ronald Raegan would say, “Well, there you go again.” I learned, as someone nominated for a Grammy, that getting awards can be as bad, and full of shit as politics. Ya know how bills are passed that have a lot of pork and earmarks? Well the latest from the Recording Academy is filled with […]

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY FOR NON-MOTHERS
This is an encore of a blog I wrote 4 years ago…and it still rings true today. If you don’t have any kids, and it’s Mother’s Day, things can get weird. No flowers. Eventually I thought I’d get a bouquet. Of course celebrating the due respect and love to my Mom is wonderful every year! […]

It’s the last 24 hours of my 56th year. What the fuck?! Somebody please take the foot of the accelerating aging pedal! I go from being invincible to – “Holy Shit, I’m looking in the mirror at an adolescent trapped in old lady’s body!” I still have tons of energy. I don’t think like an […]

SHEN YAWN – I MEAN YUN
What a fucking disappointment! I want my money back! DO NOT WASTE YOURS. I could have seen Bill Maher for less!!! I was really excited, especially after all of the hype about this show. I saw the Shanghai Acrobats in Shanghai, and I figured it would be as impressive, slash, mind-blowing, and I’d splurge, since […]

Jon Stewart: America’s Majority Needs You Back! (A letter to Jon)
For those of you who know, love and respect Jon Stewart’s work, there is no explanation for the title of this blog. For those of you who have been brainwashed and have no clue how brilliant he is – your loss. Dear Jon, Fuck the farm animals! Not literally…and not even figuratively – just get […]

OPENING FOR MIKE MCDONALD-NICEST GUY IN THE BIZ.
I have never met a nicer “star” than Michael McDonald, who prefers to be called Mike. From his roadies to engineers to band members, they were the nicest people I have ever worked with…as The Opening Act. (Also the name of my documentary!) Did you know that some “stars” have it written in their contracts […]

It’s ironic that most of you will read my anti-social media via social media. The fact is that social media is a complete ruse. It has sucked in a large portion of the population to participate in nonsense. And the worst – or best part about it (depending on how your life is) is that […]
