WILL YOU VOUCH FOR ME?

What’s up UTC? I’m really excited to update you on my life and all things Hollywood. Fact is, this morning I got a letter from the Screen Actors Guild stating that I’m now “SAG Eligible.” If you recall in my last blog I mentioned that I got three SAG vouchers working on a film called […]

THE LESSONS OF OBAMA & McCAIN

The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these, you did for me.’ (Matthew 25:40)
McCain & Obama at Ground Zero…Awesome!
How honorable, that in the midst of this historic campaign, our two candidates can put the petty name calling, political pundits, and divides on American’s issues […]

BACK DOWN MEMORY LANE

I’m taking a break. No election coverage. No thoughts on the fall television season, the NFL or the upcoming MLB playoffs.
Today I’m remembering September 11, 2001.
I was invited to play in the John Starks celebrity golf tournament. John flew me in from Los Angeles to Long Island, first class, on American Airlines. That night, I […]

GIGS, GEAR AND
THE ART OF BEING A GENTLEMAN

My mind is running on overdrive lately. Work is kicking me in the hind parts so I’m looking for a new gig. On the other hand, I’ve been thinking that a 9 to 5 is for suckas and I should find an alternative route to bringing in some income. I have had a horrible time […]

BIRTHDAY AWAKENINGS

Usually around my birthday I go into hibernation in order to reflect on where I was the year before and where I want to be by the next earth day celebration. Last week, I felt like my brain was clogged up with all of these thoughts that were clouding my awareness. You know how […]

REFLECTIONS OF A FATHER

Matthew 10:33: “Who ever deny me before men, I will also deny before my father who is in heaven.”
The day has finally arrived. My daughter left home for college.
This time of the year thousands of young people are going through this same experience, but what makes this case unique is that […]

A STONE OF HOPE

“With this faith we will be able to hue out of the mountain of despair a Stone of Hope.”
- Dr. Martin Luther King, August 28, 1963
In his great “I Have a Dream” speech, Dr. Martin Luther King said the above words, that on today have major significance to me, as I like billions of people […]

FINDING MY OBAMA

I want a Barack Obama! After hearing his speech the other night I realized how much I love Black men with all their unexpressed pain and imperfections. I Love them ALL. They are so strong, tenacious and talented, some of which is unrealized. Sometimes Black men don’t see their full potential and that […]

THE POWER OF “NO”

There is a line drawn in the sand. That line is a threshold. On one side is who we are and just beyond that border is who we want to be and the life we desire. We face that line at any given time. We usually see it when there is an opportunity to grow. […]

Farewell My Summer Love

Someone once said that “all good things must come to an end.” Sad, but true.
UTC, I have had the opportunity to do so much while spending my summer here in California. I have been to a couple of parties, one in Compton, one in Hollywood. I’ve been to some nice restaurants, met […]
