Arbitrary Rules, Terrible Waiters, and NEVER Use Social Media to Sign Into Third Party Apps

May 31, 2021
Don't you hate it when people create arbitrary rules, or at least enforce legitimate ones arbitrarily? When someone has it in their power to do good by you, help you out greatly, and for some arbitrary reason they just DON'T? Today Curtis talks about a recent encounter with an organization that did just that and how he got his way in the end.
 
Curtis also talks about why you should NEVER use your social media or other account credentials to log into third party apps and services.

PART II–How To Be More Productive and Accomplish Things That Seem Difficult or Impossible

PART II–How To Be More Productive and Accomplish Things That Seem Difficult or Impossible

May 17, 2021

Picking up where he left off last week, Curtis outlines a few more items in his tried-and-true, SIMPLE (but not necessarily EASY) formula.  No psycho-babble or self-help, rah-rah nonsense.  Just real, practical stuff.

Avoiding much of the minutiae involved in some of the steps, he discusses a the following additional aspects of the formula:

GIVING YOURSELF A TIME LIMIT  (Helping to propel the tasks forward and eliminate procrastination)

STARTING THE GAME!  (Why some people can't seem to just get STARTED)

MOMENTUM  (Part of the main crux of the formula is building momentum.  Without it you will accomplish very little.)

DEVELOP A SWAGGER  (Making "Kick it in the Teeth" a way of life)

Fighting With Stallone: Hollywood Stuntman & Actor Jeff Bornstein Shares His Stories

Fighting With Stallone: Hollywood Stuntman & Actor Jeff Bornstein Shares His Stories

April 19, 2021

My guest today is perhaps one of the most well-rounded performers and entertainers that I know.  He's been a stunt man and stunt coordinator, body builder, actor, and producer for approximately 50 different feature films, shorts and television series over the past 30 years.  He is also a retired U.S. Army  Military Intelligence Communications specialist and and amateur radio (HAM Radio) operator.  And if that isn't enough, he is also an award-winning magician, and has performed some 700 shows at the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA, in addition to completing four world-tours with Armed Forces Entertainment.  Sometime in the mid 2000's, he formed an entertainment organization for veterans known as Operation Bravo--an organization that is dedicated to bringing the highest quality of entertainment to the U.S. Armed Forces both local and abroad--Through Operation Bravo he has performed some 500 shows for U.S. Troops, and he has a bazillion challenge coins to prove it!. 

He's gotten knocked out by Sylvester Stallone, beaten up by Jean-Claude Van Damme, shot at by celebrities and killed on America's Most Wanted, fallen out of buildings, been set on fire, crashed cars on freeways, and has performed a blindfolded mind-reading act for many years with his wonderful and lovely wife Kimberly (originally from Oklahoma), who absolutely steals the show with her incredible southern charm, lightning-quick wit, sense of humor, and mind-reading stunts.

 

IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS:
 
  • what got him started doing stunts professionally in the movie industry
  • the time he played softball with the cast of "Happy Days" and his very special encounter with Henry Winkler (a.k.a. "The Fonz")
  • his time performing a tour during Operation Iraqi Freedom
  • his service in the U.S. Army
  • how he was knocked-out cold by Sylvester Stallone while filming a fight scene on a bus for the movie "The Specialist."
  • ...and more!
