What is THIS all about?

New people ask me what I do.

My usual answer is that “I’m an Actor, Author, and an Entrepreneur”.

And then I wait…

Most people ask about the “Actor” part, because they want to know if they’ve seen me (they have) and to see if I’m “famous” enough to get excited (sometimes).

If they ask more, they find that they’ve seen me on TV and in many commercials, like this one:

The “regular” people just giggle about my sort of fame, and it ends there. I get to know that these people are more often than not people who let other people ell them what to do, and have that “Sheeple” thing going for themselves.

Nothing wrong with it, that’s just how it is.

Some people ask me about being an Author. They are also asking to see f they’ve heard of a book Ive written, but often they have a book they want to write, and are looking for advice on actually getting it out.

Often these people are artsy, but have a little bit of guts too. I tell them about the several books Ive written, and about my most well-known one:

But it’s the ones who ask abotu being an Entrepreneur who get the whole story,

Because to me, it’s all the same thing- ways to create VALUE in people’s lives. To me, being an Actor is about being an Entrepreneur through giving performances. Being an Author through writing.

But the REAL focus of my Entrepreneurial efforts is to be FREE.

It’s to NOT work for someone else, but to create the life that I want to live.

And often, these people also want to be free.

So, I help them do that by understanding several ideas, and help them USE what they learn through building an online business.

Whether I’m auditioning for a part, previewing a book, or creating websites, it’s all to provide value.

So, if you’re of the third category, and would like to learn how to be FREE to earn income on your own terms- without having to beg some boss for your livelihood, 

Then the banner on the side “Free Video” and hear my friend’s explanation of how we help people become Entrepreneurs.

Or, you could just watch videos of me on TV.

Or, you could buy one of my books,

And if you decide after that, you’d rather live life on your own terms too, then click the side banner.

 

The “Lost” Star Wars Bloopers are FOUND!!!


Star Wars geeks rejoice! This is the lost video that was recently found of the Star Wars Bloopers you wish you’d seen in the past 35 years! 

Han Solo, Princess Leia, Obi Wan Kenobi, Chewbacca- all of them appear in footage you haven’t seen!

I mean, it’s not as fun as a Star Trek Blooper reel, but hey- George Lucas fans will have to take what they can get!

A Lobbyist and a Senator Walk Into A Restaurant… Joke?


We are constatly talking about how our government is failing us. We itch and moan, and yell and scream, but sometimes it takes comedy and art to really get the message across.

After all the hoopla about the government shutdown, and the bribery, and Obama being a secret muslim, maybe it’s time we look at the bigger picture.

What the waiter does at the end is my favorite.

Holy Crap- Russel Brand just won me over BIG TIME.


I haven’t liked Russell Brand’s comedy… I just haven’t ever found it very good or creative. 

And now- WITHOUT jokes, I just listened and watched him blow away a snarky interviewer for a full 10 minutes with RAPT attention:

“If we can engage that feeling and change things, why wouldn’t we?” Brand crescendoed. “Why is that naive? Why is that not my right because I’m an ‘actor’? I’ve taken the right. I don’t need the right from you. I don’t need the right from anybody. I’m taking it.”

How Low Wages Cost The TAX PAYER…

I had neveer thought of this.

If 50% of low wage workers get government assistance, then that means that the TAX PAYER is paying their bills. And the only reason that is happening is because the fast food companies pay so little that they can get record profits.

In other words, THE TAX PAYER actually pays 50% of the workers' salaries, and then let the company keep the profits!

So, exactly WHO is getting the government money?

So, if YOU had a company, and you could keep your profits instead of paying your workers, you would, right?

THAT'S THE PROBLEM.

I had NEVER heard it that way before, and it was enlightening to me.

Banksy in NYC



I stopped by the Banksy art piece near the WTC. The piece depicts the world Trade Center (Ground zero) during the attack on 9/11/2001. The explosion you see is actually a flower. Using a flower, the universal symbol for peace as an explosion is effective.

The Disgusting Thing The Government Did While We Weren’t Looking.

Looney Tunes. The shutdown cannot end until ONE SPECIFIC PERSON says so now. That's not democracy, is it?

Not even the most senior GOP congressperson, Speaker of the House John Boehner, is allowed to do it, without permission from his own guy.

This is BONKERS. The guy in charge of the GOP can't end the shutdown… watch:

Also, there's a great explanation here:

WHAT THE HELL?

Bob Orci talking about a new Star Trek TV series… MAYBE

They SAY Star Trek might come back to TV, basically because of the successes of Sleepy Hollow and AGENTS OF SHIELD… but I'm not holding my breath.


Well, I would love for a good Trek to come back, but I wish I could get JOSS WHEDON to write it!

I really didn't enjoy ENTERPRISE, despite that the fanboys are so loyal they pretend to like it,
I have to admit to really not caring about anything that happened on it.

I DO however, like the JJ ABRAMS ones, even though they're totally crazy; I think it's just a sign of the times. The more calm stuff just doesn't work on today's crowd. How can we get Captain Kirk and Shatner involved, etc… now I'm just dreaming.

Anyway, read the rest of the article (although I pretty much told you everything)

Bob Orci is reportedly talking to CBS about a new Star Trek TV series:

Converting an indian to christianity, Religion and Ignorance

So, apparently, no one can tell if this is just brilliant acting, or seriously messed up kids.
Unfortunately, I think it’s the latter:

The question becomes: How does ignorance play a part in Religion?
What if the answer is that Religion RELIES on ignorance? That Religion cannot exist without Ignorance?
My favorite moment is at 8:57 when Sara just makes a decision for them…

Old Spock versus New Spock race To The Club

I got this from my friend Jenny Lando, who saw it on io9.com, which is doing a little cross promotion with the Star Trek Into Darkness movie.

There is no such thing as a Star Trek/Nimoy fan who doesn’t like this commercial for a German car:

Old Spock and New Spock, Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto

I mean it has Bilbo Baggins, the young whippersnapper gets his comeuppance, and there are Star Trek lines galore…!

The tag from the Audi YouTube:
What happens when old school goes head to head with new school in a battle of speed and wits? Leonard Nimoy takes on newbie Zachary Quinto and his all-new Audi S7.
