Premiere "Erdogan: Dictator's Republic"
by Ryan & Joe Heilman
Congrats to my friends Joe & Ryan Heilman, a couple of very brave guys, on the premiere of their documentary on Turkey's Erdogan this weekend.
Crazy fact, Erdogan had these two permanently banned from the country when his regime found out about their film. Their behind the scenes stories are absolutely astounding!
Unfortunately, most of the people attempting to fight the oppression in their country are either in prison, facing death or have been killed for attempting to speak out.
Fun fact, Alfred Molina provided the voiceover for this film.
Smarter Social Media Lecture
I'll be guest lecturing at El Camino College to provide students with ways to better utilize social media to enhance their professional profile.
When the world was introduced to social media, methods to use these tools became a free for all. Of course, that resulted in a lot of positive, negative and unexpected outcomes for its users. I aim to help professionals avoid typical pitfalls in hopes that they'll be able to use these tools to advance their careers.
Thor Ragnarok Activation
Have you heard about this super indie film out of Australia called Thor Ragnarok? Oh, you have? Well that helps me with my job then.
I'll be taking point on several special Thor Ragnarok activations across the country this coming week! I don't want to let the Hulk out of the Banner too soon so I'll wait to share what we have in store once we launch these special events for fans next week.
"I shall respect Rex.
I shall never misuse Rex Kwon Do.
I shall be a champion of freedom and justice."
Halloween 2017 | Rex Kwon Do
It's hard to believe that it has been 13 years since we were introduced to the hero we all needed but didn't deserve... Rex from Napoleon Dynamite.
I'll be blunt with you - with all these stand alone superhero movies coming out these days, I'm shocked no one has optioned an origin story on Rex. The fact that Diedrich Bader hasn't had the opportunity to reprise this role is a travesty.
That is why I've decided to pick up the mantle of Rex this halloween. Although I propose a twist... Since I have a beard, this will be Rex in his darkest timeline. Rex Kwon Do was bought by the competition (Billy Blanks and his Tae Bo Body Shape Fitness Instructional Videos), Starla left with all the money, and Rex has entered the underground world of backyard wrestling. Will Rex reclaim his role as a champion of freedom and justice or will he fall prey to the temptations of the world?
Find out... Halloween 2017!
