Ever Met An Honest Motivational Speaker


“What you’re doing in life isn’t working and that’s why you’re here. So what I have for you today is a system of tools that will empower you with more tools that equip you for the success and fortune I never achieved doing something I secretly gave up on. Yes, I’m only doing this shit now because I know what failure tastes like and I might as well make a fast buck while keeping myself from offing myself. Of course you don’t know this because I’m applying my own tools right now! Now if you’ll open your power booklets to page one, or how I like to say, power page one…”

10 documentaries that’ll open your heart

1)  A Matter of Taste: Serving Up Paul Liebrandt

Meet Paul Liebrandt: A young Chef from England who carries himself like a struggling poet and rock star from the mid 90s. When Paul arrives in New York City to achieve his goal of being an executive haute cuisine chef, he’s up against a slowdown in the haute cuisine segment, corporate chain restaurants and food critics that couldn’t care less. Finding work gets harder and harder with each employer either saying he’s over qualified, or difficult to work with. This documentary quietly asks the question; “Is it more important to be true to yourself, or compromise who you are?” Scene to look out for: Paul gets hit on and doesn’t know how to respond. A scene later, he shyly tells the camera, “I’m, I’m married to my work.”

How To Play Hipster Monopoly

1. $50 each for everyone with a beard. Friends without beards get $45 and must wear a minimum of seven colors that don’t match.

2. No rolling the dice. Ever. Move one space at a time because you have a retro bicycle and one of your parents never hugged you.

3. One players (non-hipster) owns all the property and gets to roll three dice. For every double rolled, the richest player gets to move two more times, twice. Sorry that you took art in school more seriously than math.


4. When you do pass ‘Go’ pay interest of what your student loans are at 12% per month per smile. Again, sorry about the math.

5. ‘Go to Jail’ is now replaced with ‘Go to Jail and write a self-published memoir.’ After finishing writing each chapter, you get to roll the dice. A double gets you out, but seriously, no one’s reading your memoir. Continue reading

I expected a lot from this play and it delivered so much more

Last Sunday, I saw the play DIRTY running at the Zephyr Theater on Melrose Ave. and it’s been on my mind ever since. It’s simply incredible and completely delivers the modern day American dream with unstoppable texture and great dialog. A married couple with everything to lose decide to create the first ever porn company with integrity and morals before profits. Go watch something real and funny is what I’m saying. I’m a nobody to give reviews, so I’ll just let you click here and read them yourself. Fuck the reviews, just go watch it. The lead Max Lesser was perfectly cast, I couldn’t take my eyes off the effortless Anna Konkle, Sumiko Braun (recently seen with Halle Berry on CBS’ EXTANT) delivered as always and then some with her beauty and vulnerability. Go watch it before it becomes super popular because that way, you can tell people that you knew about it and will come across classy and all sorts of intelligent. Kidding aside, DIRTY is the best play I’ve seen and I know it’ll be a long time before I see something this funny and honest. Oh and the Zephyr Theater serves wine at the intermission so take cash.

Seven Christmas Movies with Christmas in the Background

With Christmas approaching, the classics such as a Christmas Tale, Home Alone etc will start airing on TV. Here are some incredible movies that often get ignored but still deliver heaps of heartwarming Christmas spirit.

While You Were Sleeping (1995) – A modern take on Sleeping Beauty. The first draft of the screenplay originally had a leading male working the ticket booth who falls for a girl in a coma. So glad they changed it. Far less creepy and more Sandra Bullock is always the way to go.

Trading Places (1984) – Just a little bit over 100 years when Mark Twain’s ‘Prince and the Pauper’ enters the public domain, this modern take comes along with two of the funniest actors in the primes.

The Family Man (2000) - It’s an updated version of Mr. Destiny which was a take on It’s A Wonderful Life, but there’s a certain sweetness this movie delivers in spades.
