the man who was born in the stars

The Wise Men of the World quoting Astrology
  • Albert Einstein: “Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It taught me many things and I am greatly indebted to it.”
  • Isaac Newton: (said in defence of astrology, to sceptic Edmund Halley)“I have studied the matter. You sir, have not”.
  • Benjamin Franklin: “Oh the wonderful knowledge to be found in the stars. Even the smallest things are written there…if you had but skill to read.”
  • President Theodore Roosevelt: he kept his horoscope mounted on a chess board in the oval office. When asked about it he would reply... “I always keep my weather eye on the opposition of my seventh house Moon to my first house Mars.”
  • JP Morgan, America’s first billionaire: “Millionaires don’t use astrology, Billionaires do.”
  • Plato: “Perhaps there is a pattern set up in the heavens for one who desires to see it, and having seen it, to find one in himself.”
  • Donald Reagan, formerly Ronald Reagan’s Chief of Staff said: “It’s common knowledge that a large percentage of Wall Street brokers use astrology.”
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson said : “Astrology is astronomy brought down to earth and applied toward the affairs of man.”
  • Sir Francis Bacon, the father of modern science: “The natures and dispositions of men are, not without truth, distinguished from the predominance of the planets.”
  • Shakespeare: he said in the person of King Lear... "The stars above govern our condition." He follows that with "I was born sir, when the crab was ascending, all my affairs go backwards."
  • Von Goethe: wrote an astrological description of his birth...”These auspicious aspects, which the astrologers subsequently interpreted for me, may have been the causes of my preservation.”
  • Dr. Carl Jung: “Astrology is assured recognition from psychology without further restrictions, because astrology represents the summation of all the knowledge of antiquity. The fact that it is possible to construct, in adequate fashion, a person’s character from the data of his nativity, shows the validity of astrology.”

“Trials of the Darksaber” gave us so many delightful insights into lightsaber combat and I am so happy for it.

1. It confirmed the “lightsabers have weight” argument that was postulated after TFA: the looping energy gives resistance against the hand, demanding extreme focus and skill.

2. The energies of a lightsaber blade call to one another. This was my favorite revelation, as it explains that age-old gripe about “Why don’t they just slide the blade down, there’s no handguard!” and “The blades wouldn’t lock like that!” It also points out why a combatant can’t just extinguish the blade to break a lock and then flip it on again for a kill–there’s more to it than two lines in space. The lightsaber is an extension of the Force and its wielder, and seeks to match other energies.

This also explains why a lightsaber can catch Force Lightning–the dark magical energy is drawn to the magical blade.

3. Lightsabers are now officially magical objects. The Darksaber straight-up BIT Sabine when she was being reluctant with it, and even seemed to influence her emotions–while I am not dismissing her emotional triumph throughout the episode, I am positing that the weapon helped to channel her feelings.

This revelation is also, of course, not only relevant to the Darksaber. This could explain why Jedi and Sith don’t just turn off their opponent’s weapon or rip them from their hands–the weapon itself will resist. This would also conform to the Rey Skywalker hypothesis in that she was able to call Anakin’s lightsaber to her hand because she, too, is his grandchild–born of the man who wielded it first. The sword chose her.

Sentient lightsabers could even give further insight into the legacy of the Kyber Saber, but that is a matter for another day.

Today, 71 years ago, was born the man who completely changed my life! 

Today, after so many years of passion and love, I’d like to tell him that I miss him  terribly, that he’s always my greatest joy, that his voice cures my sad days, that he is and will always be irreplaceable, unique. 

Today, Fred, I want to tell you that you’re loved by so many, that the memory of you will never be forgotten, that you changed the music universe and you still inspire a lot of people. 

Today your star shines a little more.

Happy birthday, my love! I was born to love you❤♛

Star Trek — WonderTrev AU (Series)

Star Date 2265. Diana of Themyscira, daughter of Hippolyta, protector of mankind lives to see humans evolve beyond war. Born a goddess more than 4,500 years ago, Diana did her part to rid the Earth of invasion during an age when they were most vulnerable. Now she travels to distant galaxies to live among peoples who are stranger to her than man was the first time she sailed to their shores. Some humble her with advanced understandings of peace. Others cling to war, so she must carry sword and shield.

The gods lead her to an unoccupied planet so alike Themyscira she aches. There, she establishes a society of New Amazons. Women-spirited lifeforms from all corners of the universe make their home there. They elect their queens, they study ancient texts, and they fight in the style of the greatest general the Amazons have ever known. Diana is their reveared goddess of truth. She is beloved, but she is held apart. 

The Federation finds Themyscira by accident. A Klingon warship shoots down a pod ejected from the starship Enterprise. Diana rescues the lone figure inside. When she sees him, a thousand years fall away. Captain Steven Rockwell Trevor returns to her as Captain James Tiberius Kirk. Steve. Jim. Instead of a book of poisons, he has a powerful crystal he must deliver before war sweeps the Federation. The differences mean little.

She knows those blue, blue eyes. Brash, honorable, self-sacrificing — he is her heart made whole again. He calls her home Paradise Planet and approaches its glowing waters with a boyish fascination. On the beach, he remindes her how to sway. Yet, even with a holo as proof, he finds it difficult to believe in reincarnation. He tells her it doesn’t matter if he can’t remember — he believes in her.

With him at her side, she leads his crew and the Amazons into battle. Ares is alive again in the body of a Klingon general. Diana almost loses her love again, but Ares’ stolen lightning hits the crystal first, giving Jim back his life as Steve. Together, they defeat the god of war for a second time. The Amazons invite their enemies to Themyscira, where they reform the war-minded. 

Diana accepts an invitation to board the Enterprise and makes a home for herself in the arms of her captain out among the stars.

I want to tell you a story.

I want to tell you a story.

I’ve been a good kid all my life.
Was an overachiever, was smart. People liked me, I was told.
I had friends. I never really knew that though. Because
I was always in trouble.
With authorities.
Specifically.
MEN.
I didn’t know what the dynamic was. I just knew I was a “fuck up.”
Any time I stood up for myself when I was being wronged, I was punished.
Any activity I loved, they would find a way to take it away.
Any time I was myself, it was bad.

And because of this, I never let myself have the good things.
I never let myself even experience joys, even as I was creating them.

As I climbed greater heights, I was told it was because of XYZ, but never
because I was talented, smart, diligent, thoughtful, kind.
It was because I was being given things.
Because I was cute.
Or a girl, and cause you know, we’re “In” right now.
I worked very very hard.
I work very hard.
But my whole life, I thought, “When will I be good enough. Why am I so bad?”
And I’ve hated myself.

Flash forward to me, at 30, premiering a movie I wrote, directed, starred in.
People really loved it.
Something born in my brain, but mostly my heart, made it a very long way
To be watched by strangers in a beautiful theater.

A man who I grew up with, a man who spear-headed this bad dynamic in my life,
said to a friend of mine, after people left the theater
“You know, Noël never knew how to behave.”
He said it as a joke, I’m sure, as it’s often presented,
When someone wants to tear you down with a smile.

I was very sad to hear this.
That even at the height of my success so far, I’m still not good enough.
I’m a misbehave-er. For valuing myself. And my voice.
For telling a kind story. About fucking up and forgiving people.
I was crushed.

I’ve been very heartbroken.
And I’ve sat in it for a few days.
Like I’ve sat in it my whole life.
But this time, something different happened.
The sadness started to transform.
And with it, some identity started to break down.
This victimhood. Of being told me, my essence,
my being, is wrong.

And in it’s place, a new emotion has started to develop.
I think they call it “RAGE”

This past week,
I feel like an animal.
I am a fury
at every man who has told me
being great is being bad.
Doing what I love, connecting with people, and expressing myself
is wrong.
At every PERSON who has internalized violence, misogyny, or injustice as TRUTH
and locked people up inside of it.
For every person who doesn’t see me for me,
Or who can’t see any CHILD, or WOMAN, or OTHER who sees things as they are.

I am a madness toward anyone who doesn’t recognize how incredibly powerful
I am.
We all are.
AND HOW PRECIOUS we are.
KINDNESS is not a weakness. LEADERSHIP isn’t BADNESS.
And neither is my ANGER.
My anger isn’t bad, it’s the truth.

I am very mad. I will let it pass, but I am allowed to be
enraged by all that has been taken from me.
And all the ways I’ve been told I was wrong,
When I’ve been right all along.

Who was Elizabeth Short?

“…she [Elizabeth] knew I was bashful and liked to see my face turn crimson. She would say ‘We ought to go dancing together’ and then get so drunk the boys would have to carry her out. But she was a nice girl”

- Bob Pacios on Elizabeth Short

Before her horrifically mutilated corpse was discovered in a weedy lot in January 1947, Elizabeth “Betty” Short was a nobody. Born to a working class family in Medford, Massachusetts, young Betty always dreamed of being a movie star. At age fifteen she was forced to move to Florida for her health, and there she formed many crushes on the handsome Army men and officers who frequented the storeroom where she worked. One man - Maj. Matt Gordon - promised to marry Betty once the war was over. Following her dreams of stardom, Betty moved to Vallejo and then to Santa Barbara, where she tried to break into the movie scene. Instead she was arrested for underage drinking and shipped off again to Florida.

In 1945 Betty was left heartbroken when her sweetheart, Matt Gordon, was killed in his fighter plane just a week before the end of the war. She had told her friends they were engaged and ready to have children, but recieved a nasty shock when Matt’s parents informed her that their son had sent them a wedding announcement while he had been abroad - and the woman wasn’t her.

In 1946 Betty Short again upped sticks to California, this time settling in the movie-making capital of the world - Los Angeles. Her striking good looks earned her a few roles as an uncredited extra, but Betty’s habit of sleeping until noon and spending her afternoons drinking meant she wasn’t as dedicated as other girls when it came to finding acting work. Nevertheless, she practised different accents for hours in the mirror, and would often ask her roommates to stand in for a male actor while she played the part of leading lady.

About a year before her murder Betty began dressing exclusively in black, and wearing a white flower in her hair (contrary to popular belief the flower wasn’t a dahlia). Since she was often broke Betty began going on dates in exchange for drinks and a meal, but did not resort to full-time prostitution as many sources claim. She adored dancing in nightclubs and listening to live bands, and often had to be carried home on the shoulder of her current dance partner at the end of a long night. She was well known to bartenders in Los Angeles for her habit of charging drinks to strangers. She was never seen without her velvet purse that she carried Matt Gordon’s letters in.
Just a week before she went missing Betty visited a friend in Santa Barbara with news she had scored a movie role. “She was happy” the friend later recalled “because this guy had offered her a few bucks to stand-in for his movie. She thought it was her big break. We went out dancing and she told all the bartenders they were going to see her at the movies, that [she] was going to be a big star”. Less than two weeks later, Betty Short was murdered.

Zeus and Family Modern AU

-Zeus is the CEO of a multi billion dollar company.

-He’s one of those totally insane CEOs who’s always cliff jumping and spelunking and extreme camping in the arctic.

-He’s constantly cheating on his wife Hera, who he’s known for so long and so well that she’s basically her sister, and she knows about all the affairs but doesn’t file for divorce.

-He has two sons with her, Ares and Hephaestus and Ares is the rich play boy who loves guns and violence while Hephaestus is at MIT getting a degree in Mechanical Engineering and Design.

-He has a few other kids too, his daughter Athena was born before he married Hera, and she’s now a professor at Harvard and is getting a nobel prize in literature for her book on Ancient Greece.

-Then there’s Artemis and Apollo, the twins with one of Zeus’s mistresses, a model named Leto. Artemis is an olympic athlete and Apollo’s a movie star and recording artist.

-His son Hermes is business man who was raised far away from Zeus and is trying really hard to make it without telling everyone who his father was.

-His youngest son Dionysus is the wild child because Zeus raised him all on his own. He does a lot of partying and drugs and having sex and has gone to rehab multiple time.

-He has a ton more children and they’re always popping up all over the place cause the seem to be exceptional at doing weird things and whenever they pop up Hera just shakes her head

-Hephaestus’s girlfriend is Aphrodite, a model who he met through his dad. She’s going to design school in Rhode Island. Her and Ares have a little thing on the side.

-Zeus’s older brother Poseidon used to be a marine biologist but now he just sits on the beach and surfs all day and no one knows how he gets his money.

-Hera’s older sister Demeter is a gardener and farmer and whenever her daughter’s not off with her bad influence of a husband, Zeus’s brother Hades, Persephone helps her run the farm.

-Hades and Persephone run a funeral home and morgue, all wrapped into one and Demeter hates it.

If you gonna like someone, like a sex symbol. The original is always the best. Rudolph Valentino (1895-1926). Born in Italy, travelled to USA aged 18, starred in many silent Hollywood Films. Check out Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse 1921. Sexy Tango included. Failed marriages, incorrect rumours about his sexuality and an untimely death aged 31. Oh Rudy a truely passionate man who never found love himself. (sigh)

I think my favorite thing about the AOS cast is that you can watch the three movies and actually see the way that they grew into the role like

  • Chris going from being a little shit who wants to get a rise out of people aka the Kobiyashi Maru scene to a Captain plagued by his past and refusing to lose anyone else
  • Zach’s eyebrow raise (which is on fucking point the whole time but in Beyond it is so Leonard Nimoy it hurts)
  • Karl’s little homages to De and learning the way to hold his face/mouth to convey such Bones level exasperation
  • John doing that fucking smile when he sees his family that is literally just SUlu like he went from a quiet character in the first reboot and piloted a ship that hadn’t run in decades
  • Zoe’s glare in every single movie that could cut a man in half but also saved my life
  • Anton going from a nervous, somewhat stuttery Chekov to the navigator of the Enterprise who saves the goddamn day with Jim 
  • Simon has always been the embodiment of Scotty but the way he looks at the Enterprise like it’s the love of his life and he’s so reluctant to leave her like he was born for that role 

Idk i’m just emotional and proud of my children 

Born from Stars - pt. 3

[A/N: Here it is! Part three to the Star Child AU! It’s shorter than what I’d like, but @alienslovetea reminded me that I have to leave you guys wanting more! I hope you enjoy it! Give some feed back if you want~

Part I     Part II 

Part III


Leandro – Lance, the boy reminded himself – walked into Garrison, carrying his bags in both arms. He had said goodbye to his family earlier in the day before he boarded his flight to the United States of America. “Where’s the office…?” He mumbled to himself, his Cuban accent thick. He wandered around until he found something that looked like the office. “H-Hello?” He called from the window leading into the office. A girl looked up, and walked over.

“Hello, can I get your name?” She asked, looking through a list of names.

Lance smirked flirtatiously, “The names Lea- Lance. Lance McClain,” He deflated once he realized that he had changed his name, it wasn’t like it was his fault that some people couldn’t pronounce POC names, so he needed to change it to make it easier for them.

The girl smiled fondly, apparently used to people flirting with her. “Your room number is 67, your roommate is Hunk Garrett,” she said, handing him a card that had his face on it – it would be his I.D. Leandro stared at the name on it. Lance McClain. He supposed he should start getting used to calling himself Lance. He smiled at the woman before he followed the directions to his room. When he walked in, Hunk was already there unpacking his things into the dresser he chose.

“You must be Hunk,” Lance said, smiling at the bigger boy. The boy turned to him, and smiled widely.

“Ye-Yeah, I’m Hunk! Hunk Garrett! Well, my name isn’t Hunk, but my name is hard to pronounce so I just go by Hunk,” the guy rambled slightly, making Lance automatically like him because he was in a similar situation.

“Well, now’s a good time as any to tell you my name isn’t Lance, it’s Leandro, but I needed to change it so people would be able to pronounce it here,” Lance told the boy in front of him, setting his stuff down on the unclaimed bed.

“Huh,” Hunk said, cocking his head. “Both of us go by different names for the sake of other people. Although, I do like the name Hunk. Do you want me to call you Leandro?”

“No, I need to get used to being called Lance, to be quite honest.”

Thus, began the first friendship Lance had that wasn’t from his school back in Cuba. They got along very well, Lance often cooked with Hunk whenever they had the free time to do so. When the first semester came and Lance found out that he was only a cargo pilot, he wasn’t as upset as he thought it would be. Okay, that’s a lie. Ever since his family told him that he literally fell out of the sky, Lance had been dying to go to space as a fighter pilot. To be closer to the stars. Suddenly his childhood obsession with going to space made sense – he wanted to be closer to where he came from. For a while, Lance was confused why a falling star would birth a child, but then the more he thought about it, the more it made sense.

Like a human, stars are born, then they grow old, and finally die. Unlike humans, stars form black holes when they die. Lance wondered if that meant anything to him, as someone who fell out of the sky as a shooting star. What would happen when he died?

To distract himself from such thoughts, Lance began a rivalry with Keith Kogane, the star Fighter Pilot. He started it on the basis that ‘he got to be a Fighter Pilot, and I didn’t,’ and let it fester from there. It worked mostly, Lance rarely thought about his origins after he began the rivalry – but then Shiro and the rest of the crew on Kerberos disappeared – or died, but Lance refused to believe that the man he looked up to was dead. He himself came from space, how hard was it to believe that an alien took the crew – though Lance thought all of these things, he never spoke them out loud. Not even to Hunk, who quickly became his best friend. After Shiro disappeared, so did Keith, and there left the distraction and slowly the thoughts about where he came from and how it happened started popping up.

Then suddenly, Lance was a Fighter Pilot, with Hunk as his Engineer, and a boy called Pidge Gunderson as his Technician. Pidge and Lance got along, but it took some time in order for the two to get past their differences and realize just how similar they were to each other. Although they failed the simulation every time, Lance knew it was because he was starting to go lax – to worry more about the things going on inside his head than actually working his way through the simulation.

Even more unexpected and sudden, Shiro came back. Albeit, falling out of the sky – and for one heart stopping moment Lance thought that there was going to be another someone like him – but it was even better, it was Shiro, and suddenly they were flying into space in a giant blue lion to save Earth and the rest of the Universe. Suddenly his dream of finding out where he came from wasn’t so unlikely, and it was even a high possibility.

New dad Liam Payne speaks about fatherhood for the first time
Liam Payne, 23, couldn't resist gushing about his newborn with Cheryl, 33,, as he took time to speak to fans outside of a restaurant in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Fans went wild after Cheryl’s hairstylist Dayaruci shared a snap of a baby clutching his hand - fuelling speculation as to whether it was her child. 

And elsewhere, Liam Payne, 23, couldn’t resist gushing about his newborn, as he took time to speak to fans outside of a restaurant in Los Angeles on Tuesday. ‘He’s great, he’s good. I love him and I miss him a lot,’ the One Direction star, who is currently working on new music on the west coast, reportedly told a fan. 

Liam’s gushing comments over his new bundle of joy was made during his outing to Beauty & Essex restaurant in Hollywood. The British hunk looked incredible as he displayed his extravagant body art in a silk bomber jacket and skinny jeans.

After months of swirling pregnancy rumours, Liam and Cheryl confirmed the birth of their son on Saturday 25 March with a sweet Instagram of him cradling the tot. 

And now fans are eager to catch a glimpse of the new arrival, which caused them to melt down as they took to social media to question the identity of the infant uploaded onto Instagram by hair stylist, Dayaruci.

Cheryl’s mane expert wrote 'Sweetest’ across the snap of the child in a baby carrier, adding some Easter themed emojis. 

The image has since been reposted by several fan accounts, with followers commenting in their droves about whether the picture could be of Cheryl’s child.

Fans shared, 'Is this baby Liam and Cheryl’s son?’, and 'So, it is real?’ and 'OMG! I’m so looking forward to seeing your face.' 

The star opted for an unusual jumper for his latest social media post, which appeared to be printed with the images of cartoon pirates and monsters all over. Sweeping his hair to one side, the new dad then appeared to grab onto his the middle of his trousers as he smouldered for the camera. 

Clearly feeling fierce as he posed in his bathroom, he captioned the shot for fans with the alluring words: 'Gucci on my…’

One fan posted: 'That’s not their baby. It can’t be. It looks too big to be their baby who was just born.' 

A representative for Cheryl has confirmed the child is not theirs. 

 Meanwhile, Liam has been sharing a number of edgy selfies to his Instagram page over the last week. The One Direction star, 23, clad himself in a baggy sports hoodie for a brooding snap on Saturday - which saw him pose in the mirror with his hand clutching his crotch.

Perhaps experimenting with a new look now he has become a changed man as a father, Liam has shared a number of grungy selfies for fans this week.

 In another snap posted on Friday, the star powerfully stared down the camera from the comfort of his car, with his hair coiffed high above his head. 

Meanwhile on Wednesday, the Wolverhampton native appeared to channel his inner Ali G as he posed in a varsity jacket, beanie and his beloved gold chain. Pulling the hat across his face, to flash a chunky watch to fans, the singer wrote playfully beside the image: 'Mask off ayy’

Liam has been displaying a grungier look as of late - just three weeks after the birth of his first child with girlfriend Cheryl, 33.

The Promise This singer had gushed beside the image: 'On Wednesday 22nd March Liam and I became parents to an incredibly beautiful, healthy baby boy, weighing 7lb 9 and looking like a dream. Although he still doesn’t have a name he is already stealing hearts. We are all madly in love and overwhelmingly happy with our little arrival. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers around the world. A day that now has a different meaning to me forever.’

Liam then took to his own Instagram to share the same snap, writing a touching tribute to Cheryl beside the same candid image. 'My close friends and family know there are very few times when I’m left speechless… wow! I’m incredibly happy to welcome our new baby boy into the world, it’s a moment that I will never forget for the rest of my life and my favourite memory I have so far. I’m completely in awe of his incredible mother and how she has been the whole way through this, she’s really made my dreams come true. We haven’t named him yet but he’s already capturing hearts including mine. I feel very blessed.’

Liam and Cheryl first met on the X Factor in 2008 when he was auditioning at the tender age of 14 while she was a judge - before embarking on a romance at the start of last year.

✗ Delicious
Imagine your OTP, based on this text post: ‘Okay, so I’m a waitress at this restaurant that’s open really late and it’s nearly 1am and this family comes in and I’m so tired that I handed their BLIND SON a menu and he’s like “ah… thank you… I’ll just… read this” in a serious voice and I fucking snorted.‘

Who Is Chinese Power Ranger Ludi Lin?

The presence of Ludi Lin as Zack, the Black Ranger can only have benefited “Power Rangers” in landing its May 12 release date in China and improving its prospects at the box office. Lin is young, sporty and Chinese.

But the Fuzhou-born star is no mere English-speaking Asian makeweight. Lin boasts a strong filmography in China, and his role in the Lionsgate fantasy is as super-heroic as the other characters.

And from a man heavily into snowboarding, scuba diving, Muay Thai and jiujitsu martial arts: “Acting and sport have many things in common. They challenge the performer. There can be no deception.”

Merlot: Alright, but I am not a storyteller. You have been warned. 

Merlot: Once upon a time, there was little girl, who lived in a castle far far away. This little girl was no ordinary girl, she was a princess, trapped away from the world. Her mother tried to keep her from the common folk, but some how one lonely soul was able to break his way through. Stumbling across her kingdom he fell for the princess instantly. Many days and night were fought for the young man to keep her hand, but on one not so special day, the princess came to him in the cover of moonlight. Her bright eyes glowing in its rays, they vowed to one another that they would be together forever, in this life time and all the others that would follow. Someday, somehow, they would find each other, no matter what the obstacle. Their vow was very powerful, and together they created a monument to their love. A child born of beauty and heart, who would forever be theirs to cherish…

Merlot: Oh! Shooting star! Did you see that?

band!gmw / instagram au

With Riley and Isadora on guitar, Lucas on bass, Zay on drums, and Maya on vocals, the John Adams Misfits have been dominating the billboard charts with their fresh, alternative rock sound. 

Maya Hart - Dubbed as the ‘rebellious lead singer’, this fiery blonde has eased her way into the heart’s of all media outlets and has certainly done her rounds in networking with other bands/artists.

Riley Matthews - As a die-hard Knicks fan, this bubbly brunette is always honored to play Madison Square Garden. She absolutely hypnotizes the crowd with her powerful guitar solos and is known for her bright stage presence, flower crowns, and shiny pink guitar.

Isadora Smackle - ‘The saucy genius with the mouth of a sailor’, is what Rolling Stones calls her. As the newest member of J.A.M, she still has a lot to prove, but as a musical composer, her art really speaks for itself.

Zay Babineaux - With titles such as, ‘Rock & Roll’s finest’ and ‘Newcomer of the Year’ it’s hard to play down Isaiah’s role in J.A.M. Not only is he the main composer, he’s the glue that holds the band together.

Lucas Friar - Although he is known as the heartthrob of the band, his expertise on the bass speaks volumes. This Texas-born rock star is bringing bass guitar back in style.

Farkle Minkus - He’s the man who made it all possible. Farkle has started his own record label under his father’s company to sign J.A.M, a talented group he’s proud to call his friends. As band/tour manager, he works to keep them at the top of their game.
