Jimmy Hollywood

Okay folks it's time to get live and serious on King Baran Blog and give you a bit of the real TRUTH!  I still have a VCR and I still watch videos on VHS all the time!  If you don't have a VCR you are missing out on buying movies for the real cheap!  I'm talking like twenty five cents for a movie!  Yup, that's right, movies for a quarter!  I just watched Jimmy Hollywood and I thought it was a great flick!  If you are interested in Hollywood at all, this is a great flick for you because you can see some shots of the Hollywood area that looked different and real to me.  That is something you might not get from other movies.  It shows the true grit!  This is a great flick about Hollywood and a great movie about making movies!  Click the Amazon link below to check it out for yourself!

The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar

The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More is a fantastic book written by Roald Dahl.  I first came across this book when I was probably about 12 or 13 years old, but the book is so good an adult would find it interesting and enjoyable.  It really is a must read for any age because the stories are just incredible!  The book is a collection of seven short stories, and I think the best one is the story of Henry Sugar.  Does anybody out there know if the story of Henry Sugar is true or not???  It is really hard to tell if this fantastic story is fiction or truth!  Whatever your age, The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More is an incredible read!  Click the Amazon link below to purchase your own copy of this grand book!

Sucker Free City

I saw this film several years ago, and I thought it was absolutely excellent!  I believe this film was actually created as a pilot for a television series that never got made, but the film really blew me away.  I thought there was some very cool music and images, with a unique look at San Francisco.  Although the film is fiction, it offers a very slick look at contemporary urban life and race issues.  A must see as far as I'm concerned!  Click the Amazon link below to purchase your own copy of this very cool film!

Free Stuff on the Internet!

One thing that I really like to do is look for free items on the internet that can be sent through the mail to my home.  A site that I have found that is fun to look through for freebies is Totally Free Stuff.  They add new links daily to lots of free stuff on the internet.  Just be careful though, because a lot of their offers are not really "free," there are a lot of surveys and other hoops that you have to jump through to find the true freebies.  I've been using this site for probably about 5 years now, and I've had a lot of fun with it, so I think it's worth checking out!

L. Ron Hubbard's The Problems of Work

As an artist, my life has taken some strange turns, and I haven't really followed many of the conventional rules of the American ladder of "success".  I had major difficulties holding a regular type job, and I became an artist for this reason and several other important factors as well.  I recently came across a book entitled The Problems of Work, written by the creator of scientology, L. Ron Hubbard. I recommend the book for anyone that has struggled with the world of employment because it provides insights about work, jobs, and life that actually are useful.  Click the Amazon link below to purchase your own copy of L. Ron Hubbard's The Problems of Work.

Geronimo - An American Legend

I just finished watching the film Geronimo - An American Legend.  I must say that it is a very good film!  It reminded me of a classic American Western.  The scenery of the American Southwest was incredible and the music was also great!  It is an important film because it deals with American History and it also deals with how Native Americans were treated.  The film boasts great performances by Jason Patric, Gene Hackman, Robert Duvall, Matt Damon, and Wes Studi as Geronimo.

Ocean Grove New Jersey

I went to Ocean Grove this morning to pray again.  Whenever I feel down in the dumps about something I go to the beautiful town of Ocean Grove, NJ.  It is a beautiful Christian oasis, and in the summer they hold Sunday mass at the Great Auditorium.  There are also all types of other events and programs throughout the year that can bring spiritual growth.  I have recently been going through a separation from my girlfriend and I have been very sad.  I have been praying to Christ frequently to try and find my way through this.  When I go to the Great Auditorium in Ocean Grove I feel connected to Christ Consciousness as I pray and it helps me to deal with the pain.  It is a beautiful and magical place and I hope to see YOU there!
