This movie is so funny and I have seen it a few times and it is still funny.

ART OF THE WEEK

Broken Lamp

What do you do when a lamp that you like breaks.

Well, if you are like my very creative friend Carole.

You make a beautiful Christmas decoration out of it.

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON  OF THE WEEK

Bryant Greene

Bryant is no longer with us, but he is one of the best people I ever met. The first film I ever made, I wrote a part for him; but, he was reluctant to appear in a film so my friend Jerome played the role of Bryant Greene in the film. 

Jerome and Bryant did not know one another, but Bryant told me he was once at a meeting where they were both in attendance. Bryant told me he walked up to Jerome and said, “You don’t know me, but I am Bryant Greene.” I wish I could have been there for that meeting.

Anyways, I did get Bryant to appear in another on of my films – Perceptions. If you want to see Bryant in action, check out this short film.

  JOKE OF THE WEEK

CHARACTER TRAITS

The following my be an extreme example of thinking positive; nevertheless, it is important to think positive.

SOCIAL TRAITS

I can appreciate the challenges single people face with trying to meet people and date during a pandemic; but, I hope it doesn’t come down to this.
