“Be so passionate that people think you might be a little insane.”

Day dreaming in ink

Screen-shot-2010-11-26-at-10.53.56-PM

  1. The most beautiful thing you can do is smile.
  2. Embrace whatever genre of music you enjoy listening to. Don’t let anyone tell you it’s “not music.”
  3. But just know there will never be a better song than “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins.
  4. It’s ok to think another woman is beautiful.
  5. Don’t be catty to other women. You’ll need them when we all overthrow the world together.
  6. Don’t let any man convince you that he is powerful enough to change you.
  7. Even if he bought you dinner, you owe him nothing. 
  8. The amount of pride you feel when you look good in your bikini for 20 minutes is far less than the happiness Taco Bell can bring you. I promise.
  9. Develop a lust to see the world around you.
  10. It’s ok if you don’t want to play princess or put on makeup.
  11. But it’s ok if you do, too.

Through Oct. 8 and 9, Paramount Pictures allowed college press an amazing opportunity to attend the “Jackass 3D” pre-screening and interview the stars of the film.

The crew reunited for their 10 year anniversary to make “Jackass” in 3-D.

The all star cast includes: Bam Margera, Johnny Knoxville, Jason “Wee Man” Acuna, Preston Lacy, Dave England, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Ryan Dunn, Ehren McGhehy and the director Jeff Tremaine along with multiple guest stars.

On Oct. 8, I attended the press pre-screening of the movie at Mann’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

At the showing, the audience was provided with complimentary soda and popcorn.

As the theatre quickly filled up everyone was given the option to sit in the regular theater seat or a “D-Box” motion seat. I took the “D-Box” seat and enjoyed the action as if…

With less than four seconds left on the clock and his team down by one, Gibbs took the inbounds pass and dribbled twice before a quick step back shook his defender long enough for him to get a decent shot off at the buzzer.

Seton Hall was ahead for much of the game against Villanova, which was considered one of the best teams in college hoops and a likely number one seed in the NCAA tournament heading into this week.
