    Janis Ian's The Tiny Mouse, Fantasy Faire SL & Brain Pickings's Children Books

    in Current Events

    This is the final week of National Poetry Month. I've been trying to attend at least one literary event in the greater Boston area. I attended a reading by Author Maxine Hong Kingston. Today's episode will focus on Janis Ian's The Tiny Mouse, Fantasy Faire in SL, Brain Pickings's list of 15 children's books. This Sunday, I'm hosting a special two-hour poetry event with a fellow writer at Fantasy Faire 


    Poetry at Fantasy Faire, April 23-May 3


    Celebrating its seventh year, Fantasy Faire 2015 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world. From Thursday, April 23 to Sunday May 3, treat yourself to eleven days of shopping, live music concerts, auctions, hunts, events and roleplaying as thousands of Second Life residents and creators bring their own visions together to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer.


    The Tiny Mouse by Janis Ian


    About Brain Pickings


    Brain Pickings is a cross-disciplinary LEGO treasure chest, full of pieces spanning art, science, psychology, design, philosophy, history, politics, anthropology, and more; pieces that enrich our mental pool of resources and empower combinatorial ideas that are stronger, smarter, richer, deeper and more impactful. Above all, it’s about how these different disciplines illuminate one another to glean some insight, directly or indirectly, into that grand question of how to live, and how to live well.

The auction produced several record sales prices, such as $650,000.00 for the 1907 Harley Davidson Strap-Tank, and $775,000.00 for the ex-Steve McQueen 1915 Cyclone. On April 8th at 7pm Central, join us as we sit down with Ron Christenson, head of the Mecum Motorcycle Division, and Mr. E.J. Cole himself to discuss the results of this monumental sale

    His specialty is eyeglasses and small electronics, but he will buy and sell anything he thinks might fetch a profit.
    Struggling with finding the "right" items and spend agonizing hours doubting his purchases and his pricing (like many eBay sellers)

    JAMES WILDER INTERVIEW

    in Entertainment

    Powerful and versatile actor, James Wilder has been garnering awards and shining reviews in his new independent film, "3 Holes And a Smoking Gun," in which he portrays a duplicitous, washed-up screenwriter. He was named Best Lead Actor at the Red Dirt International Film Festival, Best Actor at the Winter Film Awards and Independent Spirit Award at the Garden State upcoming Film Festival. The film was also awarded the prestigious Grand Jury Prize at the Red Dirt International Film Festival and Best Screenplay honors at L.A.'s Downtown Film Festival.


    James Wilder's indelible portrayals include an ambitious lawyer in the Emmy Award-winning drama "Equal Justice." co-starring Sarah Jessica Parker, and the charming but sleazy drug dealing seducer in the series "Melrose Place." The New York Times said "James Wilder, as Carl Isaacs, is a thoroughly malevolent character, one in whom evil, rather than insanity, prevails," regarding his portrayal of serial killer Carl Isaacs in the acclaimed Miramax film, "Murder One."


    The multi-talented Wilder started off as a street performer, who took his juggling three chain saws act from San Francisco to New York and Europe. He performed at the legendary Moulin Rouge in his mother's native Paris at the age of 14. He studied at the famed NY Actors Studio . If that isn't enough, Mr Wilder also designs exclusive leather jackets and jewelry, refurbishes vintage furniture that he finds at auctions and flea markets, collects classic cars and commits to acting projects only when it inspires. “3 Holes And A Smoking Gun” is one such project. and is also a formidable architect and clothing and jewelry designer. It seems there is little this dashing actor cannot do.

    Government Auction Specialist, Ian Aronovich, Reveals Bidding Strategies

    in Finance

    Ian Aronovich, Co-Founder and CEO of GovernmentAuctions.org, reveals government auction strategies with Heather Wagenhals, host and executive producer, of Unlock Your Wealth Radio. Tune in as the auction expert shares bidding tips and the advantages of government auctions.


    Ian began shopping government auctions for the bargains they yielded on the artifacts of the good life -- electronics, cars and jewelry. But instead of leaving with great deals, he came away with a business idea -- a website that lists auctions of government-seized and surplus items and foreclosures.


    Take notes during this educational conversation between Ian and Heather as Ian reveals what to avoid at auctions and how to stay away from items that are too high for a great deal.
