Damn, Daniel!

You know how people say something isn’t true unless it’s true?

For example, speculation has been that Daniel Craig would eventually return as the iconic 007 after a long break following the  Spectre. That’s been what many people (including myself) have believed to be true for quite some time, in our minds.


Damn, Daniel!

Apologies, Mr. Craig/James Bond/007.

This is amazing news. While Sean Connery will always be known as the greatest James Bond in cinematic history, Daniel Craig has given the Scotsman a serious run for his money. Partly because Daniel Craig has brought unrivaled modernity, realism and grit to the character. But also in part because Daniel Craig’s James Bond is a more complicated and conflicted character with a relatable (as relatable as 007 can be) emotional range to how a normal person would react and think beyond the flashy gadgets and unforgettable catchphrases.

So, it’s officially one more film for Daniel Craig as James Bond. And that’s exactly what 007 fans have been saying since Mr. Craig’s brilliant first-go as the British spy in Casino Royale back in 2006. And we’ll keep on saying it…one more film…one more film…one more film, please.

Just don’t ask Daniel Craig that one question two days after wrapping Bond 25 (title TBD).

P.S. Remember when “Damn, Daniel!” was a Snapchat craze?

Only ONE SIDE Matters in Good vs. Pure Evil

The tragedy in Charlottesville, VA has been covered on the news by every angle, but only one side (NOT “many sides”) of this story matters:

The good men and women who stood up for equality and human rights for all people.

The people who bravely and proudly showed up in Virginia to protest against hate represented every American watching TV in shock as that tragedy unfolded. These counter-protestors stood up for what’s right against the absolutely vile, revolting, reprehensible and hellish views and flags of David Duke and his white supremacist followers. Those (insert your own choice phrases here) carrying Nazi flags and promoting white supremacy on American soil will burn in hell. These people are the scum of the earth and they are not only on the wrong side of history and humanity, but they are on the worst side.

At this point, many of us are left wondering how this happened in 2017? Why are these people filled with so much hate and pure evil? It’s physically painful to have to write about this event and subject matter. More so, it’s disturbing and utterly heartbreaking.

Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon spoke about Charlottesville last night. Like Mr. Fallon, I prefer not to dive into political issues too often on my blog (despite my passion for politics). However, some cases warrant a response, like what transpired this past weekend.

Well said, Jimmy Fallon.

President Trump’s multiple responses in Charlottesville’s aftermath, and his lack of definitive, immediate and obvious condemnation during the tragedy, have been shocking and chilling. The president speaks passionately about building a wall along America’s southern border. So why couldn’t he passionately deliver an equally and unmistakingly impenetrable rhetorical wall against David Duke and white supremacists during the Charlottesville protest and tragedy, during and immediately after?

It’s difficult to find words right now to react to the president’s real reactions to Charlottesville.

But shameful, tragically unreal and disgraceful are a start.

Happy Monday

It’s Monday. It’s time to wake up from the weekend (literally and metaphorically).

It’s time for TCB.

TCB: That Creative Brainstorm. There’s no better way to start the workweek.

And that’s how you take care of business.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

WHEATies: The Breakfast of Champions…Eventually

When will our grand “moment” in life happen? This is one of the biggest questions people want to know, along with finding our one true love. And for most people, both of these variables in life of paramount importance have no GPS option or Uber driver with an ETA. Nope, we’re the driver with no map on strange roads with no cell service in the making-it-up-as-we-go-along-in-the-dark approach.

Comforting? Not exactly. However, according to comedian Sebastian Maniscalco, patience is a virtue.

Plus, posing for a hilarious modeling picture will lead to your dream coming true…in 19 some odd years.

Congrats to Sebastian Maniscalco who finally made it to the big time in LA.

P.S. Find yourself some wheat this weekend and have your life changed!
