According to this wonderful PSA, snorting cocaine is 100% equal to shooting yourself in the head. Don’t believe me? Hit play and get scared straight! Produced by Edward Sicard. Featuring […]

Self-Help Sunday

April 3, 2016

I ran across a great post on Quartz that was reprinted from LinkedIn: Almost everyone who is unhappy with life is unhappy for the same reasons If you will read, you will immediately see how it can be helpful in recovery.  In brief, it’s all about setting expectations, thinking positive, and being realistic. Your expectations, more than […]

Recovery Road – New Teen Drama About Rehab

January 23, 2016

The ABC Family Channel rebranded and transformed itself into the FreeForm Channel this month in an attempt to gain a new audience who may have viewed the original name as being too family friendly and expected offerings to be tame or worse – boring. Recovery Road is one of their first new original programs to […]

John Stamos on Recovery

January 16, 2016

John Stamos seems like he has been around forever.  He was on General Hospital when I was in College back in the days of Luke, Laura, and Rick Springfield.  It was the most popular show in the world for my demographic.  He was hard to miss. Once I left college he started on Full House , became a […]

Bad timing this morning, posting this Bowie story I worked on over the  weekend.   Not five minutes after hitting the publish button did I learn the news of his passing.  I thought about taking it down, but decided to leave it.  He will be missed.

Belated Bowie Birthday

January 11, 2016

Happy Belated Birthday to David Bowie who turned 69 last week.  Bowie was afraid he would not make it to age 30 due to cocaine addiction ; which he kicked around the time this video was made.  He is one of my favorite artists and this is one of my favorite songs.   This performance aired live on […]

Can’t Feel My Face

January 5, 2016

I like to keep up with new music, but I generally stay away from pop music, the music you hear on terrestrial radio and made popular by our youth.  Looking at a Billboard Top 40, and I do time from time; I might have heard four or five of the songs.  If a title I don’t […]

Drug Wars – A New Hope

December 21, 2015

I went and saw Star Wars this weekend and left the theater satisfied  knowing that the direction and future of my beloved movie series seems to be in good hands under the new regime of Disney and company.  Better yet, that’s the feeling I am getting on Michael Botticelli; who along with the new Star […]

Scott Weiland R.I.P.

December 5, 2015

Unfortunately Scott Weiland was as famous for being a drug addict as he was for being the lead singer of two great bands, the Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver.  He goes now to the great gig in the sky… I hope. He tried many times to get his demons under control, succeeding at taming them for brief periods, but sadly, in the end […]

I Am Chris Farley

December 1, 2015

I caught the new documentary about comedian and Saturday Night Live star Chris Farley on Spike TV over the holiday weekend and despite the way it glosses over the ugly side of his addictions, its worth a watch if you can catch it for free like I did. Claiming to be the “definitive biographical film” about the […]

One Thing Leads To Another

November 28, 2015

Short, but to the point. “LEAD” shows how one thing leads to another. Following the wrong people, seeking approval, and chasing the dragon. It’s like a mini “Requiem for a Dream” LEAD from Matt Sears on Vimeo.
