The Hide

With movie production these days - one is easily entertained but most story lines don't make you think.   The majority of popular flicks are just too easy to follow & predict. 

In a small minority of the film industry, you find that rare treasure that gives you intrigue, tense on the edge of your seat entertainment, and a complete twist of what your perception of the film's plot is.  Going in to most films, I already have the development, plot, climax, and ending usually mapped out in my mind - and for the most part I'm right on target.  It's rare that a film not only surprises me, but surpasses my expectations.

'The Hide' did just that ... It is brilliantly written! I normally do not go for films that are dark.  It's just not my thing, although I've seen a handful and the ones that don't go too far over the edge for my liking.

I have to say 'The Hide' although promises to be dark, is so ingeniously written that you're too caught up in the story line to notice.  You're taken there and part of the story.  And the dark overtones aren't so harsh that I wasn't able to bear them.  However do not take this film lightly because the twisted and macabre nature of character Roy Tunt will take your mind for a spin.  



This film is all it's cracked up to be.  It has won many awards, from multiple film festivals across the world, in the U.S. and Europe.  John Schwab, the film producer, did a exemplary job taking these characters and film and developing them into a masterful piece of entertainment.

This is a must see!  You can pre-order it now on Amazon at this link.  If you're a film buff - and like intrigue, suspense, and surprise - you will love love love this film.

Undercover Boss Eye Opener

This past week I watched Undercover Boss, which featured Retro Fitness and one employee in particular, who got fired.  Normally Undercover Boss shows a few employees, with great stories and good work ethic, and sometimes there may be a few problem employees.

In this last issue, it seems all anyone is talking about is that one problem employee, named Jacqueline, who was a shining example of what bad attitudes are really about, and was about as bad as they come.

Jacqueline, who on the outside, seemed like a clean cut decent person until she opened her mouth to speak.  And this girl wasn't just rude ... she was abusive to everyone around her. 

As if it wasn't bad enough that she was completely unprofessional and had no compassion for anyone around her at work ... she then turned into the flippant, defensive, careless girl, who talked back to the CEO of the company when he tried to explain his grievances with her.  She passionately denied anything he was trying to explain to her, …

Brian Naranjo - A Celebrated Man

It's Saturday...

It's Saturday, and at this very moment a few hundred miles north of me, my friend is grieving the loss of her husband.

It's Saturday and this week has felt like an eternity.  I've moved through this week with such a heavy heart.

And I feel guilty for being trapped in this fog of sorrow, as I'm not the one who lost my life long partner of over 20 years. I'm not the one who just got my husband back from Afghanistan, only to lose him to an unexpected death.


I can not fathom how my friend is coping, walking step by step through the process of burying her soul mate at the tender young age of 39.

Brian Naranjo would have been 40 years old on February 29th, 2012. Brian Naranjo would have his whole life ahead of him.  He would have been celebrating a marquis year, when you're supposed to reflect on where you've come and what you have left to do. 

In reading his Facebook wall, as I'm inexplicably drawn to it, I've read the many memo…

No, Dude! I Really Don't Want to See That!

Yesterday was one for the books ... 
I was in a meeting with a sales manager at a car dealership, which was almost coming to a close when someone from the lobby alerted the manager that someone had driven up on the lot.  From the look on his face, I could tell that whoever this person was - was not exactly welcome.
He promptly apologized and excused himself so that he could deal with the person we'll call 'Dude'.  Within seconds I heard Dude and could tell that he was high maintenance from the commotion in the lobby.  He had not only shown up in a test drive truck but had a ton of his belongings inside and a trailer hitched to the back.
Patiently, I waited inside hoping that whatever went down wouldn't be a 'situation' as the energy felt in the dealership was a bit heightened.
A few minutes later, the manager returned to process a paperwork for Dude when Dude stepped into the inner office for a quick question.  I smelled him before I saw him as smoke rolled in…
