MÖTLEY CRÜE’s TOMMY LEE Is Enjoying ‘The Golden Years’ Of His Life: It’s Been Pretty F**king Rad’

Mötley Crüe was one of my favorite bands when I was a teenager…even now. The band itself retired a couple of years ago, with a big farewell tour, but each member continues to make music on their own (with a couple of collaborations between Nikki Six and Tommy, for the movie “The Dirt”).

This video by Ben Coleman is a self-reflection of Tommy Lee’s days in  Mötley Crüe, his regrets, his “retirement” and why he creates …as told by Tommy himself.

Preparing for the Future When Your Child Has Autism

Most capable adults take their ability to plan for the future for granted. When we are younger, we can dream and aspire to be what we want. To prepare for that, we study hard or gain skill.

Later, we have children, and we pass this trait on to them.

But, what if our children don’t have the capacity that we have, and have challenges? What can we do? What would you do?

Monday Morning Rambling…

Good morning from Tokyo!
Nothing serious, just a life update, because Facebook threatened to un-publish my page if I don’t post something on here…so here goes.
 
My son Alex has nine days of school left, before his school’s summer vacation. He is doing great, can read and write both hiragana and katakana. He was trying his best to teach me some, as well! He is a powerful little guy, and we couldn’t be more prouder.
 
My work and writing are going along. Work itself keeps me busy, moving around Tokyo, but I’m thriving. I think. The kids and parents are both great, showing lots of love and support.
 
“George” is coming along good…got almost eighteen A-4 sized pages written…with more to come. It’s definitely going to be my most complex story, as far as characters and story-lines go. I’m getting better at my back story, but not trying to put all my creative eggs in one basket right away. Need to save some nuggets for later, right?
I’ve been tossing around the idea of publishing all of my “other” (ok, forgotten and neglected) short stories into one book…why do you think? I may just do it, anyway. I still have the option of re-publishing them individually later, anyway. We’ll see. I’ve got so many other projects that have really fallen by the wayside, and I shouldn’t have done that. Some I put alot of work into, like “Ryo” (the screenplay that I had written, based on my children’s book, “The New Neighbor”)…and I really have to get back into it.
“Ryo” is different from my books, because it would involve casting, directing, filming on location, etc. It would be without a doubt my biggest project to date. So, if anyone may be interested in collaborating, let me know. Just make sure you’re in the Tokyo area, and free weeknights and weekends!
 
That’s about it…any comments? Please leave them, following the post, thanks!
 
Everyone have a good one…
