one stop shopping


It is a new year and I made a promise to myself  to learn and design a word press site so I could finally keep up with all that is going on in my crazy head/world.

Well… I did it!

Please feel free to come look around. Read a little. Shop a little. Look at a video or two. You know… kick the tires and take it for a spin like the good old General Lee or Jonathan Kent’s faithful work truck.

At you will find info on past shows, shows that are coming back soon and some that may never come back. There are videos and music and interviews and stores and links to bands and composers who made smothered possible.

It will also tell you when I’ll be somewhere like at the tribeca hilton next Monday and Tuesday for the pre party and premiere of the 2nd season of Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots.

In short… I am only going to go to from now on at least 90% of the time so I can keep up with this ever changing world of technology that we find ourselves living in.

I know that some will be upset with this decision but it was either get in manageable or let the whole house of cards fall down.

I prefer it this way. Hopefully you will to. If not… well… a wise man once said that you should never trust someone who everyone agrees with because that person is lying.

I liked that guy. Smart fella. Anyway…

Feel free to comment on my blogs or drop a note right there on my site. I’ll get to everything that comes here as quickly as possible and respond to most. Be patient with me though as I am still figuring out what the hell a widget is and how it effects my life!

BTW… I reserve the right to post your comments on my blog. In fact… I think it does it automatically and randomly. So be yourself, Always.

I am going to be honest on the blog. Up front and sometimes blunt. I’m going to be that way because that’s the way I am. Often times people want to put people into a box that they design for them. Not for me. No more of that from 2014 and on.

In the spirit of honesty I am putting what I’m told by many is the worst picture ever taken of me right here for all to see. It happens to be one of my favorite pictures of all time. See..? Odd. Here it is:


Some will be enlightened occasionally, some offended occasionally. I can’t help it. I am going to write my blogs the way I write my screenplays: From the heart. From experience. From my often odd perspective.

Hang on. It’s going to be a heck of a ride!

Happy New Year!

  1. I like the photo. I’ve ALWAYS thought you look good with facial hair. Although you look like you just got out of bed here, LOL I’m going to be honest here, I’ve always thought you have a wider upper lip, that is suitable for a mustache. Don’t take that the wrong way. I love ya with all my heart, but I will tell you when you look like shit, and when you don’t.

  2. you are a man of many talents, thanks for putting yourself out there for all to see. I have to admit it isn’t my favourite photo of you either, but there isn’t 1 in many a year of me that I like either. good luck with this and thanks for sharing!

  3. It’ll take some getting used to for me, but I am sure I’ll get there. Thank you for keeping us in touch with all your going on’s still. Best of Luck with all you do.

  4. seems your not the only one needing to learn a new website. i haven’t figured this one out yet either lol. like do i need to make an account like u do for facebook or twitter lol.

    1. Word Press has a function where you link your blog to your FB and Twitter and ??? It’s made life much easier for me already. I write and answer in 1 place for all those accounts!

  5. Nice blog. There are so many people that are two-faced in this world. They show one for the world to see and then they show another that isn’t very nice. What I don’t understand is how someone can do that? I’ll try and explain further. Why would someone be sickly sweet to someone just to get something they want and then turn around and stab them in the back later? Example: I see some people who look nice on the Internet and those people may even talk to fans of a certain celebrity and then turn around and cut that person’s fans down because they think that that celeb’s fans shouldn’t be upset with all the goings on especially when things are done out of the blue. Jeez! I don’t know why those people feel they have to have power over those people (fans)? I don’t get what power trip they are on but they need to stop it and freaking relax or go somewhere else and have their little power trip. Plus I think they might even be jealous when a certain celeb pays attention to his or her fans and talks with them and they can not stand that. lol I’m a good girl I really am. I have heard whispering’s about some people on a certain Beach Body team and those whispering’s don’t put that team in a good light. I know you are always trying something new John. You’re like a kid in a candy store. lol I love it. You once told me, “Be careful who you alien yourself with,” Now I am giving you that same advice back. Now Kimberly is stepping down off her soapbox one of which people would like to kick out from under her. lol Not going to work. I love the new site. It’s snowing on your site. lol My son the computer programmer was even tripped out about that. lol 🙂 🙂

    1. Thank you. I like this not much better than the other. Much less abrasive. The snow is a nice touch that wordpress provides. Sadly… it will stop snowing here on the 4th. Unlike New York!

  6. You can’t let the whole house of cards fall down. I’m so excited about seeing that nasty Jim Cryer again. I love horror and am really looking forward to “Smothered.” As for that picture, I like you better when you smile. LOL

  7. Some of these things sound d*mn familiar! Why is that? We really are two of a kind. It looks good. It sounds good. Let’s keep inspiring, pushing and teasing each other.

  8. I love it and congrats on Word Press. I have a big jar for 2014! I am putting every surprise I’ve had in writing, all nice notes, new things I’ve tried, goals I’ve achieved and much more in it. Then in 2015…I will open it up and read them all. Kind of a Gratitude Jar. I am all about embracing the positive.

    1. Don’t ever change, John. The best gift that you can give yourself is to be authentic and true! That is one of the greatest qualities that you have that I admire!

    1. Always Be Who You Are even if it does Up Set people,Be Honest to Your Self,Most of all.There has to be Honesty if Your Not Honest with your self and others how can You help them ? Think about..
      You will always Be My Hero,No Matter what..
