  • Dean Cain My Last Christmas

    Oct 14, 2014 | 11 min
    After establishing himself as a talent to watch in episodes of "Life Goes On" (ABC, 1989-1993) and "Beverly Hills 90210" (Fox, 1990-200), actor Dean Cain made his name by donning the red cape for "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" (ABC, 1993-97). For several years, opposite co-star Teri Hatcher, Cain made the widely-played role his own. By opting to portray both Superman and Clark Kent as hunky heartthrobs in a contemporary romance, Cain helped pave the way for the mainstream acceptance of comic book superheroes. It did not hurt that he was a good-looking former athlete whose freak knee injury was all that stood in the way of a pro football career. After "Lois & Clark" left the a...

    Oct 14, 2014 | 34 min
    Bluewater Productions has a new comic book biography on the life of John Lennon as part of their popular Tribute series. Tribute: John Lennon, released this week is available in both print and digital. In the pantheon of musical legends, John Lennon is at the top of the mountain, if not the king of the mountain. From his time with the Beatles and his solo projects, he asked the world to ignore borders and divisions, and instead he encouraged the average person to embrace what brings people together. And when his life ended viciously from an assassin’s bullet in 1980, the music industry, and the world, lost an advocate for peace, love and true musicality. Comic book writer Marc Shapiro said h...

    Just another Jewish latchkey kid living in a cramped apartment in Queens with his mother and brother, Scott Ian occupied his time by reading comic books, skateboarding, and watching horror movies. However, after hearing “Rock and Roll All Nite” by chance on the radio, and seeing KISS live at Madison Square Garden in the late seventies, he knew he wouldn’t rest until he had tasted the limelight for himself. After cutting his teeth on Iron Maiden and Motörhead licks, Scott Ian and Anthrax would pioneer the hard-hitting, break-neck sound of the Thrash metal movement alongside friends and fellow metalheads in Metallica, Slayer, and Megadeth, who would eventually all play together on the legendar...

    In an age when government is mired in partisan gridlock, and intransigent politicians refuse to consider compromise, the relationship between President Ronald Reagan and Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill in the 1980s is often cited as a model of a more effective partisanship. As MSNBC host Chris Matthews shows in TIP AND THE GIPPER: When Politics Worked (October 7, 2014/$17.00 trade paperback), these two men, the liberal and the conservative, proved that convictions are a strength not a burden in moving the government forward.

From hosting countdowns to graduating to specialty features that were heard nationwide thanks to a program called Ten at Ten. The passion has been to invite the artist to share their story or someone was going to write it for them.

Pope Francis – the most beloved pope in ages – seems to be as serious about his Exorcism rituals as he is about his concerns regarding poverty. Not only has he dwelled much more on demons and Satan than his recent predecessors, Francis seeks to rekindle the Devil as a possible supernatural explanation for much of the world's ills.

  • Gary Wright Dream Weaver

    Sep 29, 2014 | 12 min
    Best known for his multiplatinum hits "Dream Weaver" and "Love is Alive," Gary Wright was at the high-point of his career during the golden age of rock in the 1970s. At age 33, he had already embarked on massive arena tour with Peter Frampton and recorded music with legendary musicians Eric Clapton, and B.B King, among others. Yet, even with all of this success, he still had many questions about who he was. Now, in his new memoir Dream Weaver, he shares his more personal, spiritual side. At the heart of his journey is a profound friendship with "quiet Beatle" George Harrison. Until Harrison’s death in 2001, the two wrote songs together, pondered philosophical issues, and traveled to India on...

Most are inspired by the glamour of getting free tickets, meeting actors and musicians, having dinner in fancy restaurants and blah blah blah. Very few get into the business of Radio to set up the stage.

Chris and I then met Scott Rockenfield and Eddie Jackson, and began collaborating on original music as well as some heavy cover tunes. We played some parties and roller rinks with different singers calling ourselves The Mob, but was not satisfied with that direction. We then met Geoff Tate, and asked if he would be interested in recording a demo of some original tunes. In the late summer of 1982 we recorded four songs during the graveyard hours at Triad Studios in Re...

How many people's lives have been destroyed by a bosses thoughts in a place made to throw things away? We're all guilty of thinking too much. But nobody supports your system of choice. Bosses have HR Departments and Dept Heads to back up their orders. Corporations fail because of too much thought and not enough sweat.

  • Carly Orosz Devil Music

    Sep 15, 2014 | 25 min
    It's always taken a little while for alternative music to be accepted by the mainstream, but the Satanic Panic towards metal in the 1980s was the biggest public reaction to music since the debut of rock and roll in the late 1940s. Afraid of heavy riffs and big hair, religious extremists pointed the finger at the scary music that was "ruining" the lives of their children. In the new book, Devil Music, author Carly Orosz explores this visceral public reaction to the heavy-but-harmless genre of 1980s hair metal. Telling the tale of one band's rise to stardom in 1980s Los Angeles, the book examines religious backlash towards the alternative music of the time and the "Satanic Panic" that overtook...

Brings more peace to our wandering souls than anything else on the planet. Thirteen years ago. I can't imagine the number of dogs and cats that were hugged too tightly.
