I’m Still with Her | My Pledge to You

FRUSTRATION I strongly opposed Trump – and repeatedly denounced his candidacy, his campaign, his rhetoric and his platform of hate. I compared his ideas about immigration, the “inner cities” and his proposed ban of all Muslims to the intolerance of Vladimir Putin, and the anti-Semitism of Adolf Hitler. I denounced his selection of Mike Pence as a vice […]

I’m with Her | My Foundation

Introduction There are times in our lives that give us pause for reflection. These moments are unique opportunities to explore – and celebrate the people in our lives. These people could be relatives, friends, teachers, colleagues or so much more. In them, we may find our own most admirable qualities – because they are our […]

Coming Soon: Jurassic Pixar!

This morning I had a great idea! To take my new Tyrannosaurus Rex figure (from the Jurassic World toy line, available now for about $15) on a journey into Pixar’s world! Here’s a sneak peek – the first image for a new blog to be released before Jurassic World arrives in theaters!

A Media Comment: Animated Feature ≠ “Kid’s Movie”

Have you seen DreamWorks’ How to Train Your Dragon 2 yet? If not, do so – it’s a fantastic animated feature that, in a roundabout way, is the basis for this post.  While I was surfing Facebook, I saw Moviepilot Animation’s article:  So Let’s Talk About How To Train Your Dragon’s Gay Character.  Upon completing the […]

Michael Sam: The Draft & “The Kiss”

NOTE:  I would like to first begin by saying that I believe the clip of Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend after being drafted into the NFL runs too long. I believe the media’s extended take and subsequent, unedited airing created an artificial feeling that some have construed as a “gay agenda” publicity stunt. Michael Sam […]
