Music is where memories lives. It's a gateway to any place you want to travel. Before there can be a past. Music has to be allowed to grow in your present. For there to be memories. Art allows you to endure discoveries. In this modern age of silently wading through ipods and notebook downloads. The disappearances of the musician continues to grow. To be requires the need to be liked. For the moment is all so many try for. When in reality...rarely if ever does a moment become a lifetime when a face book liking is the best you can offer the maker of the key that generated a present memory. Melodime. Pictures of a reason. The physical act of holding true to the escape. A given platform that takes the human imagination into the jagged corners of the present meeting tomorrow. Having the courage to want to be found on your digital device. Not just today...but any day you the human need desires to hold onto a moment... a little bit longer than just being liked.

I've always been addicted to bartenders. It has nothing to do with the alcohol. Bartenders are real. That's how they make tips. They're conversation. That's how they get return customers. Bartenders are psychologists. That's how they fix themselves by using other people's problems.

It's not everyday that "Luck" steps up from the shadows and turns the corner. Only to bump into the purpose, rhyme and reason as to why you became who you are. The magazines were flooded with his pictures. Bedroom walls bled his posters. His music had attitude strong enough to be cranked up then spread out across the neighborhood via 8-track tapes to 45's and albums. The bad ass that Eddie Money is...is the very reason why I had to do everything possible to make sure the world knew who he was. I became a 1970's Radio Disc Jockey. To make things even more dangerous. I was the crazy ass night jock that knew of only one rule. You made them up the very second the final boss walked out the door.

#1 New York Times Best Seller, Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War Fmr. Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates Discusses His Service Spanning Two Administrations. WHAT: From the former secretary of defense, a strikingly candid, vividly written account of his experience serving Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Before Robert M. Gates received a call from the White House in 2006, he thought he’d left Washington politics behind. After working for six presidents in both the CIA and the National Security Council, he was happy in his role as president of Texas A&M University. But when he was asked to help a nation mired in two wars, he answered what he felt was the call of duty. In this unsparing memoir, meticulously fair in its assessments, he takes you behind the scenes of his nearly five years as a secretary at war: the battles with Congress, the two presidents he served, the military itself, and the vast Pentagon bureaucracy; his effort to help Bush turn the tide in Iraq; his role as a guiding, and often dissenting, voice for Obama; the ardent devotion to and love for American soldiers – his “heroes”—he developed on the job. However embroiled he became in the trials of Washington, Gates makes clear that his heart was always in the most important theater of his tenure as secretary: the front lines. Duty tells a powerful and deeply personal story that allows us an unprecedented look at two administrations and the wars that have defined them. Get the book

One of very few people that physically need an introduction. He's been nearly every place we've looked and didn't realize he was standing next to us on the screen. From a live comedy stage to prime time television, movies, music and even a school teacher. A master at dead pan comedy with quotes that perfectly infect the next seven generations. He says, "I will rule the apocalypse. I know exactly what needs to be done, what you need to keep and what you got to let go of. People are the same. If you're nice in life, you'r probably going to be nice in the apocalypse. It's all about survival. [on the craft of comedy] Keep grinding your axe because you can get rusty. Every joke has a life and it'll dictate it's life to you. So your responsibility is to bring that joke alive each and every time." The Comedy Zone Charlotte

Wouldn't it be great if we could walk through life and shop for the things that would make it unforgettably beautiful. Today more than ever...friends and family members say, "Wow...I guess we've reached the point where the body starts to fall apart." And when it happens it's completely natural to get mad at God. And yet he keeps loving you unconditionally. What would you say if God took the hand of a willing student and taught him how prepare millions of men and women around the world how to prepare for cancer. Pat Williams, senior VP of the NBA's Orlando Magic, is an extraordinary man. Considered one of America's top motivational speakers and leadership authors, he has completed 58 marathons in the last 13 years and climbed Mount Rainier. So when Pat was told in January 2011 that he had multiple myeloma, a rare and incurable blood cancer, giving up was not an option! Arming himself with faith, family and great doctors, Pat beat all the odds! His latest book, The Mission Is Remission (HCI Books) is an empowering resource for anyone facing a cancer diagnosis. Pat makes a captivating guest. Please read the following press release and let me know if I may schedule an interview with one of the nation's most inspiring speakers. Thank you. The Mission Is Remission: Kicking Cancer With Faith, Courage And A Fighting Spirit "Pat Williams has generously opened up his life and taken us inside his cancer battle. In this book, he shows us how to face cancer with courage and a can-do attitude. He also shows us how to get the most out of life, even while battling cancer." --from the foreword of The Mission Is Remission by Arnold Palmer Deerfield Beach, FL, February 24, 2014 - Pat William's world changed on January 7, 2011. After a thorough physical checkup the words "everything looks good—except there's something in your blood work we're not sure about" were spoken and Pat was diagnosed with a rare and incurable blood cancer, multiple myeloma. Up until then, Pat Williams had achieved some impressive numbers in the scoreboard of his own life: he's run 58 marathons, is the father of 19 children, and has lead 23 teams to the NBA playoffs, taking the Philadelphia 76ers and the Orlando Magic to the finals five times. Now he had become one of the millions of people experiencing cancer. Williams called on his faith and fighting spirit and his mantra became "The mission is remission." After a stem cell treatment and rounds of chemotherapy, he succeeded in the fight of his life: the myeloma can no longer be detected. Williams shares his story and the six essential healing factors that helped him win his battle. He reveals how he was buoyed by faith, family, and a different kind of defensive team--his doctors. With pragmatic and motivating tips, plus advice from other cancer survivors, The Mission Is Remission will be an empowering resource for anyone facing a cancer diagnosis. Today, in addition to his work with the Orlando Magic, Pat spends many hours on the board of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, responding to emails and taking calls from others affected by cancer. He is a master motivator, change agent, and champion at heart; this is his rallying cry to inspire, educate, and lead others on to victory. Having worked with Pat Williams on a number of books published by HCI, I can promise you that he is one of the most favored and called-back authors - from the sports jockey to faith-based journalists to the national TV talk show circuit and more. I invite you to get to know this remarkable man who has written about many popular heroes but finally discusses the most personal story of all--how he must now be the hero in his own life.
