Beds are Burning DAP Tales

Integrity: Firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values.
You'd be surprised to see how many people think they utilize that characteristic. The word is of great interest to me lately because I am writing about a character with unshakable integrity that hinders his own personal development. His integrity regressed into a moral stubbornness that became a hindrance. I try to maintain personal integrity. Keeping promises is so difficult when it involves your pocketbook. Maybe I really should take that business loan. There is so much I want to do artistically, but the phrase 'Starving Artist' is so very real.

To DAP or not to DAP for Brian Bonsall

Brian Bonsall, who played Andrew 'Andy' Keaton 'Family Ties' as well as Alexander Rozhenko, the son of Worf on 'Star Trek', has really changed. Makes me too afraid to know what these poor Hollywood kids have to go through when they are seen as a paychecks instead of a people.
It is amazing the twists and turns life will take. In hindsight, I suppose anyone would be able to come up with explanations as to why Brian Bonsall ended up the way he has in 2013. Frankly, if you had a sitcom in the 70's and 80's, one would, pretty much, be surprised you were alive and/or screwed up. DAPs to you Brian Bonsall! You lived.

Personally, after listening to it, my belief in the band, Green Day, has been re-enforced. Big DAPs to you Green Day, you're still king of your genre.
