The Channeling Continues: No Dearth of Speakers From the World of Spirits

Since stumbling upon Jane Roberts who began the Channeling Craze way back in 1970 I find that I can't get enough of the fact that there are a huge group of people (Some would say) making an excellent living talking in a funny accent and presenting more or less the same scientifically unproven (ie; in magnetism two positives always repel each other) Law of Attraction formula.

Anyway here is (a modern Channeled Spirit?) Bashar:

Candy Darling Can't Swim

 One of the most Famous and Tragic Personalities to emerge from Andy Warhol's Factory
Was the self-created Classic Movie Star Candy Darling.

 Here is Candy in an Interview:

Highly recommended is the Tragic, Fascinating and Well-constructed Documentary "Beautiful Darling" from James Rasin.
(I just watched on NetFlix.)
Here is the Official Trailer:

The title of this post highlights what I consider to be the marrow of the sadness of this short driven, complex life.

Bang! Bang! The "Mafia" Video Game Series

For an overview here is the Mafia VG Wiki
 I am  really proud to  be part of this nerve-rattling Crime Netherworld.

I got the chance to work on Mafia 2 doing a bunch of Gangster Voices under the direction of the great Jack Scalici.
Here we are in the Booth.
Actor Paul Parducci and Jack Scalici in the booth for  Mafia 2
Gamers love this one and for good reason. It is loaded with great characters, excellent dialogue and a robust period world.
Here 's a Review Boatload from MetaCritic

Mafia 3 is being prepped now so I have my fingers crossed!
 (No better way to work off stress then spending a couple hours a day getting to play a real bad guy.)
Here is probably the best place to stay up to date on all things M3
Have a Great Day-
And Don't Rat on Your Friends-

PS: I will ever be grateful to the  Very Stand-up Guy Brian Bloom for recommending me for this job!

The Banana Post or "The Only Banana Resource You Will Likely Ever Need."

I love Bananas.
High in Fiber
Low in Calories
Rich in Potassium
They are in many ways a perfect food.
But I'm not the only one.
Here is a veritable avalanche of links to some of the best Banana Information on the web.
From Food Matters.
The Great Folks at LIVESTRONG.
From Huffington Post we have unusual uses for Bananas.
From one of the most famous names in BANANADOM.
WISEGEEK has something to say on the subject as well.
And from Underground Health.
Finally from MDHealth.
Okay then at this point you are well on your way to being a world class expert in the uses and benefits of this noble yellow fruit.
I wish that you all Top Banana status!
