       Well Folks, Folkies, Folkish and Folklike,
It's been exactly 10 years tonight, since I first created this blog, went online and began publishing my articles, reviews, poems, the novelette etc.... Hope you've enjoyed stopping in to visit, and checking on what's new from time to time. At this point I'm not sure if I'll continue to do this, but if I do, you'll see something new posted; eventually. Regardless, I want to say Thank You in whatever country or continent you're sitting in. This has been very enjoyable, and a lot of fun for me.

All The Best,
Antonio G. Pereira

        Tom Laughlin was one hell of an Actor and Filmmaker. He made the films, 'Billy Jack' (the mysterious and mystical Native American Vietnam Veteran protector of a very progressive Freedom School, based in the southwestern United States), 'The Trial of Billy Jack' (the explosively powerful sequel to Billy Jack), 'The Master Gunfighter' (a standout, highly unusual Western, filmed with exquisitely beautiful and gorgeous Cinematography); and finally 'Billy Jack Goes To Washington' (made in the aftermath of Watergate, and which had great difficulty being released to movie theatres, at the time). There is a Box Set of the Complete Billy Jack Films. 'The Master Gunfighter', you can find on a separate DVD. All of these films are required viewing for Historians and Film Students, who want to be educated about what went on in this country, back in the Post '60s/1970s era. Very powerful and moving. Especially 'The Trial of Billy Jack'. Tom Laughlin did this country a great favour. A Patriot if there ever was one!

The Day We Said Farewell To Ali

The Day We Said Farewell To Ali

The day we said farewell to Muhammad Ali

I'll never forget

For the rest of my life

At the end of the service

On that stage

There were Representatives of every Continent,

Religion and Country on this Planet

Who stood up at that moment

And brothers and sisters....

POWERFUL MAGIC

Generated at that moment in History

Something the likes of which....

I don't know if we'll ever

Bear Witness to, again

        The Drama Book Shop {a wonderful Book Store here in the city} graciously posted my review of Victor Spinetti's autobiography {which I purchased there many years ago} on their website. This is a Book Store from the old school, where you can spend all day and come back for more the next day! http://www.dramabookshop.com/book/9781861059437

And as this is John Lennon's birthday, a perfect day to post this!

Sharing A Joke With Frank

Sharing a joke with Frank
at some little table
in a cafe (Is this France?)

Laughing uproariously
Gail is sitting next to him
Some joke or little phrase
one of us gave the Punch Line to
And every couple of seconds
after we thought about it again
helpless laughter

Dusk
The liquid refreshment flows
and we're still laughing
at that stupid Punch Line!
My God
I'll never forget this evening (you folks are so much fun) and you.
