Coming soon on Ten Minutes in Tinsel Town…
I am thrilled to death to have as my Halloween Special Guest, a real life Hollywood horror expert!
Joe Moe is an expert in horror having been a published writer, producer and designer of films and having worked in special FX makeup. He was best friend and caretaker of the late Forrest J. Ackerman, who is best known as the world’s greatest private collector of memorabilia from horror films, science fiction epics, and monster movies.
Joe really knows his stuff! He is the editor of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine which has inspired Steven Spielberg, Tim Burton, Peter Jackson, Stephen King, John Landis, Ray Bradbury and many more. He currently promotes a national horror convention called Mad Monster and he is the editor in chief of Mad Monster magazine. Joe edits the retro issues of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine and the auction catalog for Profiles in History, the leading auction house for movie memorabilia.
Join me on Spreecast.com and be in the LIVE audience for this special thirteenth episode of Ten Minutes in Tinsel Town…if, you dare!
Joe and I will discuss horror from classic literature and how it has influenced writers of today’s scary movies.
Do YOU have questions for the master of horror, Joe Moe?
I was inspired by this letter I received that I will share with you. I hope that it helps you in your time of need my friend. These are concepts that I believe, they give me hope when I can’t explain things. When you ask for prayers (positive vibes, good mojo, a universal or cosmic hug) this is where I go…
Dear Friend, Prayer has the power to transform our fear into faith. Prayer reminds us that we are never alone. Everything we are, body and soul, is in the hands of God. God’s presence fills the universe, and He is as close to us as our own breath. No matter what pain sends our way, with God by our side, we can find the strength to confront our fears. With God accompanying us on our journey, no matter what the path, no one walks alone. God invites us “not to be afraid.” The Lord tells us throughout scripture that He is with us, and so we need not fear. In Christ, Father Pat Father Patrick J. Tonry, SM Spiritual Director Marianist Mission Province of the United States
Yesterday is gone.
Tomorrow has not yet come.
We have only today.
Let us begin.
~Joseph Cardinal Bernardin
Do not fear, for I am with you. Do not be afraid for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you… Isaiah 41:10
For Laura and Christine
From Blogging to social media, to becoming a life coach and writing and self publishing a book, and now having a video podcast – Carolyn West has been there for me through it all. She wrote the forward for my book and came through for me at the final hour. This was fitting since she is the one person that I told about my dream who believed in me, encouraged me and held me accountable. She motivates, inspires, leads, and demonstrates how to be an entrepreneur and a fantastic mom all at the same time. I don’t know how she does it. But she does, very well. She is the kind of Super Star I believe in. She is a celebrity in my World. There isn’t anything she can’t do. Crafts, check! Events, done! School Council, she is on it! Book club, but of course. Women’s group, she started one. Conference speaker, yep, she does it. In fact, she co-produces an annual blogging conference, too. Oh yeah – she just finished doing a work out boot camp and now she is starting a 100 Day Challenge.
This was a long interview, it was quite enjoyable and incredibly informative. So, as they say, grab a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy this episode of Ten Minutes in Tinsel Town as you get to know, Carolyn West:
Carolyn has three wonderful, smart and well mannered daughters. She manages her household with her husband, two dogs, three kids, and a cast of colorful characters, er um… her extended family. She heads up campaigns for bloggers through Collective Bias. She started her own social media consulting business and she is the leader of So Cal Lady Bloggers, which by the last count has over 750 members – all of whom turn to her for direction and advice. Knowing what a huge task that is, she partnered with another blogger, Melissa Dell and together they have grown the group which has doubled since they started working on it together.
A former interior decorator who had to travel to Hawaii on business as a regular routine – this little lady is a power house. Carolyn will long be remembered for her contribution to blogging and social media and has Super Mom status being well known for her hands on active role in her daughter’s schools, their activities, and in the community in which she lives.
She is someone you can count on. She is kind and thoughtful. She is the legendary, Carolyn R. West of This Talk Ain’t Cheap.
Funny how when you get to know someone online and you cross that bridge to friendship, you miss out on the discovery of what makes that person tick.
This is why I looked forward to our interview.
What do you like to do for fun?
“I spent my free time with my kids… going to lunch or a movie. I’m finding that as they get older, they are actually really fun people to hang out with.”
What projects are you working on right now?
My life right now is trying to juggle working from home and managing life as a mom with three busy daughters. That’s a project in of itself. I’m not working on any specific projects right now other than my job as a Campaign Leader with Collective Bias and running SoCal Lady Bloggers. Oh, and I recently started a Social Media business with Melissa Dell, called Social Elements Media, where we teach small businesses how to use social media.
How can my viewers connect with you?
What is your favorite Hollywood Hot Spot?
I don’t spend time in Hollywood, but my favorite place to eat outside of Santa Clarita (because there isn’t much worth talking about here) is The Hummas Bar in Tarzana. It’s awesome and they make homemade pita bread that is to die for. I could live on bread.
