Giving Thanks - Actors & Directors

Friday, December 13th, 2013

So I just recently launched The Joshua James Project and I have to say, it was a surreal experience to look back over years and years of work…

Yet Another Post In Which I Tell You…

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

That I sadly must take yet another blogging break… I am writing like a mad beast, and the unfortunate tradeoff is that the blogging must wait… but I will have more to report, and soon, of that I promise you…

Just The Facts, Ma’am…

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Oh, the internets is so much fun, isn’t it?
Just so we’re clear, there’s a decided difference between facts and opinions… it seems that there’s more than a few folks battling on the internets who can’t seem to tell the difference between the two…

This Just In…

Monday, April 1st, 2013

The news of the day…
The NRA reverses its previous positions, comes out and baldly states that regulating firearms by requiring owner and operator licenses, safety tests and classes, background checks, will actually save thousands of lives and pledge to use their considerable clout to push the laws through Congress.
Congress finally agrees to chuck Obamacare […]

Friday Fight Scene - War of the Worlds

Friday, March 29th, 2013

Okay, so we’re back with this… today’s fight scene is a tad different than the norm… it’s the initial fight between Tim Robbins and Tom Cruise in WAR OF THE WORLDS… here we go…
