  • Rex Sikes Movie Beat chats with actor Clint Howard

    in Film

    Clint Howard, actor, has a career spanning over fifty years,and over two hundred film and TV shows.  He has spent his entire life entertaining us in a variety of interesting and unique roles. From childhood roles in The Andy Griffith Show and Star Trek to of course, the hit TV Show Gentle Ben, Clint was a well recognized personality by the time he was ten.Making the transition from juvenile to adult actor was no problem for Clint. Cult classic Rock N Roll High School and horror genre Evilspeak showed as an adult he could be versatile and affective. Whether Clint works in comedy classics like Waterboy, the Austin Powers film series or a hilarious episode of Seinfeld, he comfortably slides into dramatic roles such as Apollo 13, Frost/Nixon and Alabama Moon. Recently, Clint can be seen in the campy, B Horror title, Bloodrayne Third Reich and Rob Zombie's Lords of Salem. He's also put on the producing hat, teaming with long time colleague Gavin Grazer on an indie comedy. Born and raised in Burbank, California, Clint has always balanced his professional career with a 'hometown' oriented life. He continues to live with his wife Melanie in Burbank and stay active in the community. Stay tuned to Rex Sikes Movie Beat for other great archived interviews, cast and crew listings, events, festivals, premieres, and more at rexsikes.com

    Why Own Your Career?

    in Jobs

    Why are we born to own our careers?


    -Our ancestors had to be resourceful and creative to feed themselves and survive.


    -Work in its current form is a new invention and the rare exception in history, not a natural human state.


     


    How has the world of work changed?


    -The traditional career paths and assumptions are no longer valid — e.g. that big corporations will take care of loyal workers who automatically move up in a career escalator — due to at least two (interrelated) macro forces:


    -(1) Technology (automates jobs, changes the nature of jobs, and makes it easier to offshore jobs), and


    -(2) Globalization (increases competition for jobs).


    -“Professional loyalty now flows ‘horizontally’ to and from your network rather than ‘vertically’ to your boss.”


    -“Networking has been replaced by intelligent network building.”


    -“Searching for a job only when you’re unemployed or unhappy at work has been replaced by always be generating


    -opportunities.”


    -And much much more!

    Writing Warrior Radio Episode 1

    in Lifestyle

    Keith Kareem Williams is the author of 11 books & currently working on his 12th. He still resides in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York where he delicately balances his time between his responsibilities as a single father as well as the challenges of being a full-time author.


    “In interviews, one of the most difficult questions I’ve been asked is, ‘What genre are your novels?’ because honestly, I never write with any particular style in mind. I enjoy blending styles and mashing different genres together in interesting ways. Basically, I pen whatever is in my heart and soul. However, if I had to describe my style I would use musical terms and say that I write Urban, Hip-Hop, fiction with the rhythm of Reggae that crashed into Heavy Metal and then began to bleed Neo Soul.”


    One of the things I'm most proud of is how my children look at me with pride because I'm accomplishing my goals and doing the things I set out to do with my career. They recognize and respect my passion. I write constantly and I already have the titles & plots lined up for my next 69 novels. This is what I do and I'm just trying to let the rest of the world know this. My ambition is to become as legendary as some of the writers I admire. I believe that a GOOD writer pulls you into their story. A GREAT writer makes the world around you fall away as you read. The LEGENDARY writers tell stories that become a part of you and linger long after you've read the last line of the last chapter. It was once said that, the pen is mightier than the sword. I say to my fellow AUTHORS: Let's advance our craft until it's mightier than guns, grenades, bullets & nuclear bombs. If not, then put your pen down and fall back. Those of us who are serious about this will run you over as if we were riding in tanks." – Keith Kareem Williams

    One on One with Rod Colon - Live Career Management Coaching

    in Jobs

    Many people out there are in pain.  Their financial situations are dire.  They have lost their jobs, their life savings and in many cases, their self-respect while chasing around looking for a new position.


    It's that "chasing around" part that started to bother me many years ago, long before today’s economic turmoil started creeping toward critical mass.  It became obvious to me that far too many people were conducting their job searches in an illogical and self-defeating way.  They were lured into the easy, deceptive world of Internet job boards where hunting for a job simply meant finding an interesting opening, uploading a resume and cover letter, clicking a few buttons, then waiting for a response. 


    But the folly of this approach is that the job board, at best, is nothing more than a piece of software.  It cannot engage in meaningful two-way communication with humans.  Without a human-to-human “networking” component in the equation, how can anyone expect to get meaningful results?


    This is the connectionless void in which so many people have spent thousands of hours toiling their lives away in the false hope that a database somewhere in cyberspace would electronically ride to their rescue, find them a job, reinstate the flow of money into their households, and make things right with the world again.


    How much more wrong could they have possibly been?

    in Writing

    Allison’s passion for words began in early childhood, she had always been fond of reading about life, love, poetry and short stories. As she matured, she challenged herself to hone her craft, exploring various story lines and navigating into the tumultuous world of adult relationships. Nothing prepared her however for her venture into Urban Literature.Allison’s first experience with Urban Lit began when she, as an avid reader received a message from one who promoted for a brand new unknown publishing company and was seeking assistance in promoting novels. Allison jumped at the chance and was soon an official Street Team/Pep Squad member of the Cartel Publications. Allison’s first venture into self publication “Broken Promises Never Mend” became available in paperback in January 2010.  An amended version of which was released June 2010 in paperback, which features a new cover. It premiered on Amazon for Kindle, as of June 2010 as well. Allison learned various lessons while putting this novel together.


    Allison is currently focused on a collection of other works slated for release in 2016, under her  imprint “Full of Essence Publications”. The idea to reinvent herself came about with prayer and the desire to be so much more than she already established herself to be. In 2013, Allison Grace was signed to an independent publisher “Sevyn McCray Presents” spearheaded by Sevyn McCray and David Weaver of SBR Publications. Her novel under that imprint PrePaid Mistress debuted at number 5 on the Amazon Bestsellers list for African American women’s fiction. She followed up with the sequel Prepaid Mistress 2 and also revamped her ebook series Bitch Clique Reloaded into a full length action packed standalone. in 2015, Allison released an emotionally charged novel focusing on domestic violence and addiction entitled Blaque Widow.
