ONE-LINE RAVE REVIEW OF A MOVIE I HAVEN’T SEEN #21 – WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS

09/23/2010

I don’t expect I will find the time to see this movie.  Therefore, I love it beyond measure.

“As timely as can be, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps proves that Hollywood has its finger on the pulse of current events, and that Shia LaBeouf has found a way to star in yet another movie that we will see not because of him, but in spite of him.”  - Mr. Paul Maul, mrpaulmaul.com*

Have you ever had a friend who seems to have a problem listening to you when you speak? Well, you won’t have that problem with me, because in a podcast, I’m the one yammering on, and I am prevented from listening to you.  However, if you don’t listen to me, you will be missing out on pith.  And I mean pith like you read about.  Enjoy this audio wonder!

HOME MOVIES THAT HEAL PART SIX – DRAGGIN’ YOUR BUTT HOME

09/14/2010

Somebody has to put these life-changing videos up on iTunes, and it sure as hell isn’t going to be you, dear reader, is it?  But there’s no denying that having the chance to see these empow-WOW-ering daily mottos again will have some kind of influence on your day.  I am not saying exactly what kind of influence, however.  At any rate, here’s one about putting a bright spin on end-of-the-workday exhaustion.   Use it or lose it!

HALF-MAN/HALF-MILLIPEDE LIVING AN EMPOW-WOW-ERED LIFE!

09/03/2010

.

One of the truly rewarding things about being a motivational speaker is getting to meet the people(?) who attend your seminars.  At  a recent Shove it Upwards! speaking engagement, I was privileged to have been introduced to Manipede, an entity who is truly working with what he’s got to live a fully-actualized life!  We spent some special moments together backstage, and I learned of his incredible story: back when he was a human, he was bitten by a chemically-altered millipede, and all too soon began to take on the characteristics of the arthropod that had gnawed on his flesh.

Undaunted by this turn of events, Manipede is thriving: he stands before us now a proud, fun-loving individual.  A party animal and an unabashed ladies’ man (well, ladies’ Man-ipede), this inspirational creature is even the star of his own movie, The Burbank Playas Present: Manipede!

Perhaps only eleven or twelve of us will ever find ourselves being bitten by a millipede and transforming into a frightening half-human thing.  When that does happen, how we deal with it will be totally up to us.  But with this well-dressed, upbeat freak of nature leading the way, we will know there is only one way to deal with it: empow-WOW-eringly!

Thanks, Manipede!
