Olivia Newton John Wellness And Healthy Living By Kimberly Burns, OTR/L, CLT “Did Sandy sell-out and become Danny’s leather clad dream or did she claim her sexuality and her inner self?” Unfortunately I did not ask this question.

Steve Mittleman Stand Up Comedy At Its Best Interview by Ed Bertha When LA’s Comedy Store hosted auditions for Steve Martin’s film ‘Roxanne’, dozens of great comics, Steve Mittleman included, faced a professional’s worst enemy, lack of time to prepare. The Store also had a limited number of spots for auditions. Steve stopped by anyway, someone cancelled, and he got the shot. After the auditions, the film’s producers asked for only one comedian they’d seen that evening. Before he knew it, Mittleman found himself hauling a fire hose around Canada playing the quirky fireman in Steve Martin’s hit film. Let’s […]

Giovanni Lunardi’s View of the World By Richard F. Corrigan It is said that to understand a man’s life you have to walk in his shoes. You can’t, really. But for the first time, you will be allowed to look through another man’s eyes. This is an invitation to view something you have never before been allowed to experience. It’s not scary, but it may cause you to gasp. Your jaw may drop, and you may hear yourself utter words like, “Unbelievable! Amazing! Phenomenal! WOW!” There is not any one of your friends or acquaintances you are even close to […]
