I found out about this series because of Alexandra Boylan who told me her brother Alex was doing a new show. I tuned in and the tears started flowing.
I’m Filipino and lived in the Philippines when I was young. I went back with my Dad in 2005 and these people’s stories really hit home for me. I feel a connection with them in so many different ways and my heart goes out to all of them.
Thank you Alex for bringing their stories to us. You are amazing!!!!
Today I am grateful for the amazing “geek girls panel” ladies…aka) Kristen Nedopak, Leah Cevoli, Stephanie Thorpe, Jessica Mills, and Crix Lee. (And extra grateful shout out to Dane Storrusten for being the awesome token man making sure tunes were playing and wine was flowing.)
Tonight I got together with all of these awesome gals that I was on the “geek girls” panel with at Comikaze this past month. We had a fantastic time and continued to plan our world domination!!! Muahahahah!!! Just search #geekgirlshottubparty on twitter and you’ll see what I mean.
We had the great honor of listening to wonderful film, tv, theater, and social/new media professionals talk about changes in the industry, being artists, and the pursuit in general. (We even got to see the awesome Ben Whitehair in action!)
It was a fantastic day full of great information and a wonderful positive vibe.
Thank you Risa and all of the awesome actors I got to hang with!
I participated in the Body Heart Campaign as a “positive role model” when it was just beginning, and I am so incredibly in awe of the amazing things that Amber has done with it in the last year and a half!
This is such an incredibly important campaign that is all about liberating women and helping them stop…
"the WAR inside their bodies. We currently live in a world that supports an unrealistic definition of beauty - in order to change this mentality, we MUST take the time to change ourselves.
Through education and exploration, bodyheartTM provides participants with practical steps to discovering peace and a new-found passion for the body they have been given. Designed to illuminate and inspire each woman to see the ART of her own form, bodyheart is more than a workshop - it is a transformational experience uniting empowered women to embrace and embody a new example of true beauty…”
I absolutely LOVE what Amber and this campaign stand for.
After having a very successful open photo shoot in NY, Amber is now doing one in LA! Check out the info here!: http://bit.ly/tXsybG
Thank you Amber for being AMAZINGLY AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
I am half Filipino and spent time living in the Philippines as a child. I went back with my father in 2004 and the poverty there rocked me to my core. This is such an important film that needs to be made.
Thank you for making this documentary. My heart goes out to all of my Filipino brothers and sisters, especially those who in spite of all of the hardships they endure, still have time to laugh and love.
Well…unfortunately I missed yesterday, but instead of beating myself up, I’m going to say that yesterday I was grateful for the movie “In Time” (although not perfect, it was still very fun), and today I am grateful for the IAWTV writer’s workshop.
Both “In Time” and the writer’s workshop fueled me creatively. I love seeing movies that make my imagination run wild, and also love being able to read writer’s incredible works in progress.
Thank you to all of the creative minds out there specifically those who make rad sci-fi movies and those who are members of the IAWTV.
Today I am grateful for Sara Borck, Matt Borck, and Adam Littledale.
Sara and I have been friends forever….since we were like, eleven. She is one of those friends who, no matter how long it’s been, it’s like not a day has gone by since we last spoke and I love her dearly. Adam, her brother is incredible and I’ve known him just as long and consider him family. And Matt, her husband, I’ve known since before they were “Sara and Matt.” I love all of these three wonderful people, and Barry and I were honored to entertain them in our home tonight. They are truly family to me and I can not gush about them enough, Love, love, love xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
