To everyone whose been alive within the past week, Yes, Kylie Jenner is pregnant. Yes, I'm excited but there are more important things to worry about. Bringing a child into the world is a glorious thing - I hope to one day experience this as well, but there are some very important things going in our world. Let's name a few: American soldiers are still in Middle-Eastern countries, natural disasters are growing daily and destroying homes, and athletes are protesting patriotism. Why are we hung up on this pregnancy? This might be bringing a glimmer of hope to our country, it's doubted but still worth a shot, we have bigger issues to deal with. American industry is falling daily and our political system is currently dying as the days go by. We need help. As happy as I am for Ms. Kylie...

Dear Mrs Kennedy and esteemed colleagues, As a Star Wars fan I cannot thank you enough for giving us so much more to celebrate and appreciate. I write this letter out of love for Star Wars, and from the bottom of my heart and I hope it finds you well. Now is a wonderful time to be a Star Wars fan - we get to have the originals and prequels, and now we are fortunate enough to look forward to the sequels and all the other new content that's being produced. The excitement over the announcement that Episode VII was in the making was massive! I would scour the internet for any information I could find (I still do) and it was such a blast to be part of this new incarnation of the franchise (it still is). However, I remember many a concerned Google search about the status of the prequel...

Hi my name is Donald Henny and this is the story of how Bruce Springsteen got to play my bass; My 1963 Fender precision bass. Mike Appel and I have been friends for over 50 years we played together in a band and Greenwich Village in 1965 call "The Balloon Farm". I thought the band was leaning to the commercial end of the business and I wanted to be more avant-garde so Mike and I parted ways. Then in the early 1970s Mike called me and asked me if he could borrow my bass guitar because he was doing a session with his new discovery Bruce Springsteen and needed some Punchy Bass lines for a few of the songs in the album. So I brought the bass over to 914 Studio on 9W I walked in told the receptionist who I was and was told to walk through the door of the studio. When I got inside and looked...

MR. TOM HIDDLESTON, PLEASE RESPECT OPHELIA Dear Mr. Hiddleston, I'm a girl that discovered you through the character of Loki and began to search for webpages and videos to know more about him and you. In some interviews I found that you said Loki "needs Prozac and a lot of therapy", "is a damaged psychopath", "is intelligent yet broken", "needs TLC". I took Prozac and went to a lot of therapists because of depression and anxiety and that really stunned and saddened me, because I felt my suffering publicly belittled and mocked through a character I wanted to love. Why "damaged psychopath"? To act upon anger, pain or ambition, to make wrong choices doesn't mean to be mentally ill. Why "intelligent yet broken"? Is "broken" synonym for "stupid"? You said...

Last year God revealed my purpose, so I am in the process of launching a career as a Cultural Inclusion Coach Consultant and Inspirational Social Change Speaker. I know without a doubt that this is my calling, because it was my career goal to become a psychologist, I studied for years and I was a year away from receiving my doctorate. That goal was put on hold indefinitely.  Moreover, I  suffer from anxiety and social anxiety, so pursuing a career in which public speaking is involved would not have been my choice, but God's plan overruled my own.   In the meantime, in order to launch my career, I need to seek those who will be willing to open doors that I am unable to access. Therefore, while conducting a Google search on starting my own business and other relevant information. I by...

Dear Walt Disney, Disneyland, a place that’s filled with joy, laughter, and known as the happiest place on earth. But, is it the happiest place if you end up being broke because you just spent $1000 on a pass? Since the day you created this land, more than 600 million guests have visited the resort. Last time we recorded, in 2012 averagely 44,000 visitors would come per day. I myself,have been a passholder for most of my life, 13 years exactly. Ever since I was a passholder, I enjoy your creativity and imagination: the fun attractions, thrilling rides, great parades with our favorite disney characters, and performances with booming fireworks. Disneyland is a place where I made fun memories with my friends and family. Sadly, this year is my first year not owning a pass, and I can...

An open letter to Avenged Sevenfold: Hello, this is one of your loyal fans. I've been listening to Avenged Sevenfold for about 7 years now. I’ve listened to every album you guys have put out, starting with Nightmare, and till this day Nightmare is one of my favorite albums of all times right before City of Evil. I love the vivid guitar riffs of Synyster Gates, the thundering drums of the Rev. However, this letter isn't about that. This is a letter distressing my concerns on the lack of impact of your latest album. At first “The Stage (song)” seemed promising as the eargasmic guitar riffs of both Zack and Gates and the excellent drums of Brook Wackerman. But when the full album was released I found that the vivid guitar riffs present in previous album in City of Evil, yourself titled...

I recently watched the movie "The Shack" with my wife. I've never read the novel that this movie is taken from, and so my comments are based purely on the content of the movie itself, and not any specific passages from the book. Since any excerpts from the book that I might take theological issue with do NOT appear to be in the movie, it doesn’t deter my appreciation for the fact that this can be a great springboard into many useful conversations about God and how He works in our lives. I was actually quite pleased that, for once, a mainstream movie with a “Christian” theme didn’t have the bulk of its message watered down to fit into a Hollywood agenda. The themes of “why God allows bad things to happen to good people,” “dealing with the guilt and shame of our sinful behavior,” “...

Dear Karan Johar, Shame on you! First for taking a casual ‘coffee show’ comment and making into a ‘moment of the show’, and then outrageously venting your heart out against one of the most talented actresses of today’s times at a forum such as LSE where she wasn’t co-invited or had an opportunity to put up a defense. If you felt so strongly about the ‘nepotism’ comment, why not respond to it on your show in a face-off? Why not walk out or have your invitee walk out? Leave behind the negative energy there and then? Second, for having the limited artistic capacity to take the comment literally as offering your ‘brothers, sisters, daughters’ roles in films you make. In that limited discretion of yours in understanding the noun you have completely omitted the ‘close friends’ who...
