Victims of the modern age

We are victims of the modern age. We all are. Our ancestors, ancestors of man and womankind didn’t have to worry about the same things we do. Oh they had a lower life expectancy, no vaccines and Armageddon was going to happen every few years but not the same problems. No transfats, no hydrogenated oils, no radiation from cell phones, computer screens or microwaves, none of it. They were not 400 pound blobbers needing to be cut out of their home, they did not live a sedentary life, and of course it is hard to live a sedentary lifestyle when your food might migrate to a different area while you slept. The air was cleaner only polluted by natural smokes from forest fires and the occasional volcano eruption. But …..BUT, with all that said I don’t know if I would trade places with them if I had a choice. I mean they couldn’t order a large pepperoni pizza at 3am if they were hungry brought to your home and if they got a cold maybe they lived or maybe they died.

Lindsay Hollister

 actresslindsay hollister here is an interview i did with an actress for my old website
where are you from?

lindsay: I was born in Columbus, Ohio. But grew up in Pickerington, a suburb of Columbus.

how did you get into acting?

lindsay: I was always interested in acting, but wasn't able to take a class
until my sophomore year of High School.
The fall play that year had a part that was perfect for me
I auditioned and got it! Never looked back from that point on.

what was your first acting gig?

lindsay: About a year after I moved to LA, a role came up on the new hit show, Boston Public.
It was for an overweight female student who was beating up the kids who made fun of her.
The wrestling coach recruits her for the team and she finds success on the wrestling mat.
Even though I was non-union and inexperienced in front of the camera, I got the role. One of the best days of my life!
I went on to do three more episodes before my character died on the show.

tell me some of the things you have appeared in?

lindsay : Most memorable TV roles have probably been on Nip/Tuck, Joan of Arcadia, Law & Order: SVU,
Scrubs, Big Love, My Name is Earl and Cold Case.

what is next for you?

lindsay: I'm off to Montreal for a week in June to film an awesome scene opposite Steve Carrell in the big screen adaptation of "Get Smart"!
It's amazing, people will finally get to see me on the big screen!

The handy man can

I know this guy, a friend of my sister and he is a handy man of sorts or jack-of-all-trades if you will. He has fixed numerous things for my mother from fences to drywall to painting. He is surprisingly competent at most repairs although he loves to toot his own horn about the quality of his work. He is based in Richmond mostly but I think he would leave the state if someone wanted him. I made a web page for him online although I doubt anyone will ever see it.

Pen Pal

I have this friend that is in prison, I found her name on a pen pal prison sight and I started writing her. I don't know if people deserve a second chance after they commit a heinous crime, I don't know if I could be that forgiving if it had been my relative. I guess i should say why she is in jail.

some time ago she murdered a little girl...Autumn Wallace. Stabbed her like 50 times or something like that, she has never told me directly about her crime but I did some research on the internet, here is a link to a site about the case(court case). She got a little girl, the sister of a friend of hers I think, that was home alone to let her in and in the midst of robbing the house for things to sell for drugs and killed her. Rosie has told me she was on drugs during that period and that what happened was the influence of them. I was a bit shocked when I found out but I continued to write her. She seems remorseful for her crimes but either way she is on Deathrow in California. If you would like to write her here is her address for letters

Rosie Alfaro #w-45403
P.O Box 1508
Chowcilla, CA 93610

I encourage people to write prisoners to give them hope but be cautious you never know what could happen.

Terminator: The Sarah Conners Chronicles

I am a fan of the terminator series and all the movies except T3. Recently I recorded the terminator TV show, an original TV show based on the movies that takes place after the second one. So I watched and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the show, I found it very enjoyable. Summer Glau makes a good terminator from an original model series that is closer to human than the Arnold Schwartzeneggar type also she is female so that makes a different dynamic between her and John Conner. Sarah is played tough but a little more compassionate than in T2. Hopefully it will stay on the air long enough to catch a following
