"Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye" is the most important song I've
ever released, because the subject is a matter of life or death.
The fact is, bullied teens often commit suicide.
That's why iconic pop singer Taylor Dayne and
legendary DJ Paul Oakenfold have both joined me
in this special project.
All net proceeds from video views, song streams and downloads of
"Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye" will go to anti-bullying charities.
Peace and Love,

Holocaust Remembrance and Chanukah Special Broadcast!!

At only 16 years old, a junior, in high school, it was on December 11, 2008 when Amanda Suzanne Brownell tried to take her life in a bathroom at Del Mar High School in San Jose, California.

Jefferson's three examples of our unalienable rights in the Declaration of Independence are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Happiness is the state of Felicity.
It has been said that it's not how much we have but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness (Charles Spurgeon).
Lincoln added most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.
The top 10 things that come mind that make me happy are (not necessarily in the order of importance):

THE GIVER- THIS IS A POWERFUL MOVIE ON WORLD PEACE, TODAY AND THE FUTURE. DON'T MISS IT.
The Giver. As I watched the Press Conference in awe for this outstanding movie team, I was fascinated with the author of the book Lois Lowry and the screenwriters Michael Mitnick and Robert B. Weide. How did they weave her book to make you realize how stupid war is; How Deceitful the Elders (the political leaders) could become and how wonderfully innocent and intuitive our youth are?
The result of this books screen adaption, which is drenched in "the light and the darkness of life" (As suggested by Marcello Padilla, Good News Film Producer), is that our youth SAVE US from OURSELVES, THE GROWN UPS. They see the brighter tomorrow and have the strength to make changes..BRAVO…to them, they … [Continue reading...]
