A Christmas Awakening: Recap

A Christmas Awakening: Recap

First things first, Happy New Year! We are only 3 days in, and I’ve already failed my first resolution. I thought it would be a worthy goal to post something every day.

The Lost Generation

History gave us “Generation X”, which in turn gave birth to “Generation Y”. Today’s rising youth are sometimes referred to as the “Lost Generation”. It is a retrospective reference to the disillusioned youth of post-WWI, viewed comparable to present-day. Two years ago, a creative and thought-provoking video was submitted to the AARP’s U@50 video contest. It received a standing … Continue reading

Dear Tom, What were you thinking?! You must have been temporarily impaired. It could happen. After all, you were having such a good time celebrating your recent “Big Love” Executive Producer success, maybe it was just too easy to lose track of the refills. Alcohol does that to people.
