Tola Talks with Actress/Producer Stephanie Drapeau

Kudos to re-launch of Tola Talks…we had a titillating show yesterday talking Hollywood film and TV roles with the lovely and talented, Stephanie Drapeau.

Plus, before I introduce Stephanie at 27:41 minutes, I kick-off the show with some Presidential advice on how to solve homelessness and get every United States resident off the streets. I also give out the Get Your Shit Together Award to none other than The Trump Administration.

We also observe a moment of silence for the victims and families of those who perished or were injured in Las Vegas in the worst mass shooting in our nation’s history, as well as for the way-too-early passing of one the great rock-and-roll legends of all time, Tom Petty.

Here’s the MP3, and tune-in next Monday at 4p PST for another great show!

 

Movie Theme Song to Boulevard Zen – Music Video

For Flashback Friday I’m taking you back to December 9, 2009 and to the premiere of my Yoga-inspired film, Boulevard Zen. What a magical night that was, with super fond memories beginning with the drive over to The Silent Movie Theater with my very talented co-star and associate producer, Stephanie Drapeau. We sang our butts off to its catchy theme song, Life’s Boulevard, composed and performed by award-winning singer/songwriter, Erick Macek.

Here’s the music video with a panorama of my amazing journey in Hollywood. Enjoy – R

Celebrate the Small Victories

My 13 year-old niece texted me yesterday after her basketball game that I would be proud she scored 4 three-pointers and a basket. I was beyond proud and impressed her to keep taking those shots and always believing in every one you take – and to take time mentally to celebrate life’s “small victories“.

Because they are victories. Like my niece’s excellent shooting, or closing that important deal at work, or helping your children with homework, or exercising every day this week (or any number of days).

Why not reinforce your daily accomplishments with some good mental ju-ju! And just like the Oscar winners are celebrating their victories today – CONGRATS to all of them and Best Picture ARGO! – take some time each day to celebrate your small victories, whatever they may be.

And perhaps my dear friend and leading lady Stephanie Drapeau and I may not have walked the Red Carpet at the Academy Awards this year, here we are at the premiere of the heartfelt movie CAMP, benefiting Royal Family Kids.

Enjoy – R
