I've always been a fan of classic films, film making in general has always been magical to me. And nowhere does it's history lie more deeply engrained than Hollywood. I remember watching the That's Entertainment series as a child and being completely entranced by the snapshot into the archives and insights into what happened behind the camera.

When visiting Los Angeles it's hard to decide which area to call home. Are you more Bellini's in Beverley Hills or happy hour in WeHo, the pavements in Downtown or the sand of Long Beach. And if you think area is difficult, the next step is choosing the right hotel. Los Angeles has something for everyone, and on my most recent trip, I discovered that there's no place quite like Farmer's Daughter.

Hi, my name is Paul Klein; and I'm in a band, that you've probably never heard of, called LANY. Recently, we wrote a song titled "where the hell are my friends." I knew that loneliness was a very #relatable sentiment, but it wasn't until we released the song that I understood its actual scope. Loneliness is an epidemic of the internet generation. It's sad, it's interesting, and it's very real.

On this day in 2014, my husband Tim and I exited the LAX immigration offices for the first time as US residents. It was a momentous move that involved selling our home in the beautiful British countryside, leaving all family and friends, uprooting our businesses, shipping our entire house contents and flying two whippets over the Atlantic.

Pick Up Artistry? Exploitative and Fraudulent

I sometimes meet some of those that attend these seminars in my psychiatric clinic. I take it seriously because a lot of people think it's a bit of fun and it's not - what it is - is exploitation of people with low self worth and often extreme naivety coupled with the hope that it's the answer to their dreams.
