Well, well, well. Here we are. The day on which I had to reset my challenge the first time around. Did I make it past this day? What if I told you our snack on the set of 9-1-1 was In-N-Out? Ask yourself this: what would you do?Read More »

Top 15 Films of 2015

If you were ask me tomorrow at 5:00pm what was my favorite movie of 2015, I’d tell you a different answer rather than if you had waited until after supper. 2015 was that close for me, and ended up being one fantastic year for cinema, yet only was half expected.

One without ambition has to wind up without success, right? This is the way we were taught. My father was and still is a master diesel mechanic, oft-explained by a few peers, much like Luke Skywalker amongst once great Jedi.
