We live now in the age of TV--most of the best writing and filmmaking is happening on the small screen.

As Voltaire once said, all styles are good except the boring.

And ABBA. OMG, yes, ABBA.
I'm also, for fun mostly, a music producer dating back to the early 80s when I was more serious about it. Today I still try to maintain my producing/performing skills by dabbling a bit in my home studio I've built. Maybe when I have the time and temerity I'll make someone a pop star with my music if he or she can sing.
Here's link to a song I originally wrote in 1984 and recently upgraded it using modern recording tools and software. I just need a lead vocalist to complete it.
Food: Mediterranean peasant food and Mexican. I prefer simple peasant dishes over haute cuisine. My dear French Mom instilled in me proletarian principles in cooking that I cling to with all my heart.
Did I mention I write? The following are links to some of my better essays and fiction:
A Nightmare on 22nd Street - A memoir of the worst year of my life
A War Story - A memoir of my experience during the 1987 USS Stark disaster
Je suis auteur français - A brief biography of my famous French Great Uncle Marc Bernard
Goodbye, Mom - A brief essay from a momma's boy after losing her
Epilogue: The Avenging Midgets and Other Heroes in My Life - The last chapter of my first novel
The Shroud of Ernie - Humorous fiction
All Hail the Murder Machines - A brief essay expressing my views on guns in our society
