Joseph Gordon-Levitt Had A Blockbuster Summer


Joseph Gordon-Levitt has certainly grown up. He was one of the stars of the television comedy 3rd Rock from the Sun back in his teens. He shed that image with critically acclaimed roles in films such as Mysterious Skin and Brick. This summer he starred in the blockbuster film Inception. These photos (by Norman Jean Roy) are from the August issue of Details. Let me know what think of them.














P.S. I wanted to keep you guys updated with what's going on in my life. I went yesterday to my local community college. I am going back to school this upcoming spring semester. I will be a returning student since I went to this particular school years ago. Quite a few of the courses I once took still count and will transfer so I won't have to retake them. I do have to take the math placement test. I'm not looking forward to that. I was never good in math at all. I hate to think of how much I've forgotten now. I'm taking it in a couple of weeks. The first of November is early registration for the next semester. I did quality for financial aid so my tuition and books will be covered. I'm both scared and excited. I never thought I would be going back to college again. I do know that I've always regretted that I never finished before. I've never been able to get that great of jobs due to only having a high school diploma. I know that I need to further my education, especially with the current economic climate in this country. It's the best thing I do. I do feel weird going back at age 40. I know that many of the students are young enough to be my children. I've got the will and drive to make it work. It has to work. There aren't a lot of options otherwise. I do ask that you would continue to keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I appreciate it. Thanks.

Zac Efron Takes On Hollywood


I wanted to share these recent photos (by Norman Jean Roy) of Zac Efron from the August issue of
Details. Zac's been known as a young heartthrob starring in such movies as the High School Musical franchise, Hairspray & 17 Again. He's now been trying to cast off that image to build a more long lasting career in Hollywood. Last year he starred in the film Me and Orson Welles. He recently starred in the film Charlie St. Cloud. This photo shoot is a little different from the usual ones I post. I'm usually posting pictures of guys dressed up. What do you think of these photos?













P.S. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers. I really appreciate it. This has definitely been a difficult time in my life. I've been so stressed out. I'm really nervous about the future. I'm not quite sure yet what I'm going to do. I am putting in some job applications. I'm also seeking out some short term work even if I can't find anything more substantial. I'm really considering going back to college. One of the biggest regrets of my life is that I never finished college. I know that's been the main reason in my life why I've gone from one dead end job to another. It's time for a change in my life. I'm almost 40 years old. I can't keep on going on like this. I'm seriously considering going back to college to further my education. I believe that's the best thing for me to do. I'm talking with my family, friends, church, etc. about my studies as well as trying to find some work. Please continue to keep me in your thoughts and prayers. It means so much to me. Thanks. Take care. God bless you.

Fernando Verdasco Is A Spanish Ace On The Courts


I'm not sure how many of you know who Fernando Verdasco is. I wanted to take the time to introduce him to my readers here. Fernando is a Spanish professional tennis player. The 26 year old is the second highest ranked Spaniard (ranked #8) in the world after Rafael Nadal (the world's #1 and my favorite tennis player). Here are some photos (by Nathaniel Goldberg) of Fernando from the September issue of
GQ. Anybody a fan of tennis? Any a fan of Fernando? What do you think of these photos? I love all of these, but for some reason I'm really digging the last photo.





P.S. I wanted to let everybody know that posts from me right now might be few and far between. I was laid off from work on Tuesday. I've got to find a job now. I'm really nervous because the job market is so tough right now. There just aren't a lot of jobs out there right now. I think I'm going to check out the job search engine on I do ask that you keep me in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks so much.
