March 26, 2010

I decided to take the plunge!   It ‘s me, a baseball cap, my favorite t-shirt and a webcam…Be afraid   Thank  G-d for my Uber fab friends who join me to chat.


Tis’ the season to forget that it “tis the season”… In fact, even after JUST taking some “me time” to give back to the community that has supported me in so many ways… I still must admit the Uber was sucked right out of MY Fab as I found I was having an A.M. (Atomic Moment)…Not a B.M. ( Duh you know what that is…. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwh!) over something as silly as…Well it was the LAST string of non-twinkling, five foot, multi-circuit… Annnnnnywayyyyyy,  this has become a season of forgetting not remembering.

  • Forgetting to say “Please” and “Thank you”
  • Forgetting that many of us do have enough while others will go without
  • Forgetting that holiday gatherings are about responsibility and getting behind the wheel of a car drunk is simply unacceptable
  • Forgetting that to give of yourself and your time is a precious gift that WILL make a difference

So for that, I want do something I rarely do, but it is in the name of an amazing cause and some very special friends… Max Ryan (Sex and the City II) and Kevin Sorbo (Hercules and Andromeda)… I am going to share a link from my new UCUNNBFF (Uber, Cool, Uber, Newsie, New, Best, Friend, Forever) Christine (Chris) Morrow of CNN – Her article and event is no less remarkable then the people who made it happen.

Tis’ the season so GET YOUR TIS’ ON!

Today there was a change in the weather…The heat didn’t quite  break, but something shifted… A reminder that while we can’t ignore that we are experiencing a time in history when it can appear that a great deal of humanity has been lost… We have in fact NOT lost our humanity and that very busy, talented and yes FAMOUS people do something remarkably selfless simply because they are caring, compassionate and good.

For anyone who has seen a play, acted in a play or been crazy enough to DIRECT  a play… You know what it takes to connect the dots and not create a power outage as you integrate sound, lights and egos!

I decided to take on a new work – Back To Eden, (Yuri Baranovsky) which looks at the random nature of the Universe against the  backdrop of a very dark and funny version of the story of Creation.  A little Adam, a little Eve and a dash of G-d (Who I decided to cast as a woman) and what do you get?   One hell of run!

I really do want to blog in detail about it when the process is completely over, but as we put the finishing touches on the production I have to thank Max Ryan.

Max is presently filming Sex And The City II where he plays the new uber fab/uber sexy boyfriend of sexual extrovert “Samantha” Kim Cattrell.

Putting my own spin on things I wanted to add a little star power to the piece and also create a looping voice over throughout the show from the King James version of the bible to continue to pit what “we” were taught and what audiences  will experience as they watch Eden.

Max Ryan – Sex and the City 2, Dark Moon Rising, Double Fault , The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen , The Hunchback took time out from a frantic schedule to tape several sound bytes.   Why?   Simple… He is one hell of a great guy


Can’t say how, can’t say when, just sayin’ thank you!  Exclusive photo you saw it here first.   Karma is uber fab I am blessed and always sharin my blessin’ with you

It was all Sex & Blood last night at the HBO Post Emmy party – with British action star Max Ryan (Universal’s “Death Race”)- the latest addition to the Sex And The City sequel (“crossing” Samantha’s path they call it!) and True Blood’s heart throb Stephen Moyers.

Just got a ping from Max and his “people’  You saw it her FIRST here

Can this guy please get a pimple?   We love ya MaxKM2V9442_2

Type, type, type – power outage, type, type SAVE work, power outage but who cares…Besides, discovering that writing goes far more smoothly when I save my work, I am also thrilled to be “coming to you” via my new Mac Book Pro… Which I will say nothing more about unless of course THOSE FOLKS at THAT COMPANY would like me to be their fabulicious new sponsor.


Two words – Max Ryan… One more word BFF (is that a word?)  Not only is Max a hell of nice guy he is also by all accounts a major hottie so to be ethical in my journalistic endeavors, he is more accurately my NMHBFF or (New Major Hottie Best Friend Forever)… Of course one would think that this would suffice and Max can now feel as if he has come full circle and his life is complete, but this is a man with goals and aspirations far beyond simply basking in the after glow of my anonymity.

First and foremost his list of accomplishments are far too long so please visit this guy or at least his resume at IMBD

Max first came across my radar in League of Extraordinary Gentleman (of which he is one), and later in Death Race where it became clear he was an “Adrenaline Junky”… With Dark Moon Rising and Double Fault in production and post production, this A Lister has a proclivity for the “D” movies…

…”Ready for a killer ride!” the tag line for Death Race could almost be prophetic as this man is a star on the rise.

So being the shy guy that I am (NOT) I had so many earth shattering questions to wow and amaze him with…First and foremost of course I wanted to know what is was like being a hottie (I know so shallow) yet sooooo necessary.

Max is a wonderfully insightful, humble and intelligent man with an edgy sense of humor that is not only endearing but clearly one of the many reasons he is quickly moving up the Hollywood food chain.

With no negative buzz that I could find (and believe me I looked, called, tweeted and …) his “need for speed” has obviously been kept in check as he builds the “Ryan Brand”.   One fan asked – “Why don’t we hear more about this guy?”   Good question and good answer… Max explains he is figuring things out on this side of pond and realizes he has a job to do off and on the set…”I need to be just as focused on promoting my projects and I think I have an amazing team behind me to make it happen”

Did you know about the Bond buzz?   Seems Max has a huge fan base, industry executives included that think he just might make a faboo 007…Would he do it?  Ah that would be a “yes” a big ol’ heapin, steamin portion of “YES”…

Needing to get back to the set Max did admit that although he would not change his life for anything and feels truly blessed…  He does realize that while he is not complaining –“Most people can phone in sick to work but my job is zero to hero no turning back.  You hit the set running and you don’t look back…”

This is a guy with a good head on his shoulders (and my lady friends confirm it is truly sweeeeeeeeeet!)

I can’t sing his praise enough…Talented, handsome, humble, focused, funny and best of all he called me…Ok now let me say that again…HE CALLED ME…Perhaps he secretly is overwhelmed by my nearly famous status and hopes some of well me will rub off on him?

Max –FYI don’t hate the player…hate the game you are all that and a bag of low fat chips and I can’t wait to see the gazillion projects poised and ready to catapult you into the stratosphere…The invitation to Thanksgiving holds and please call me the next time you get a damn pimple and cut yourself shaving.

P.S.  I have never interviewed anyone who I could quote as saying “Beauty comes from within and good hygiene is a monthly thing” – Deep and well kinda gross at the same time.  What a guy!
