Checking in again this week to let you all know that we have our very first guest bloggers appearing for Great Stories starting the week of April 29th, and continuing through the week of May 6th. It has always been a goal to have this blog offer up some opinions outside of what the proprietors of Great Stories, Inc have to offer, and we are excited to begin this pursuit featuring two very good friends of ours. Please indulge me for a couple of moments of your time as I give a little preview of who your blog authors will be in the next couple of weeks!
Jim Cannizarro is no stranger to the blog world, and had his own blog dedicated to movies, a major passion of his. His blog was active through 2005 until pursuits both personal and professional took him in other directions, but he was eager to brush off his great writing talents and theatrical insights for us. Born in Philadelphia in 1965, Jim moved to the New England area quite a few years back. His love of movies is so deep that he can recite every Best Picture winner since the inception of the Oscar ceremonies at will! He is also not just a fan of this creative medium, but also a trained actor. Jim had leading roles in community theater productions of The Odd Couple, Flowers for Algernon, and A Christmas Carol to just name a few (and close to twenty productions in all). He is also no stranger to both big and small screen with appearances in a major hollywood movie, A Civil Action, as well as the independent production Romeo and Juliet, and local commercials. We are not sure what his plans are for his blog entry, but we know that it will be an interesting read during the week of April 29th!
Robert Fossey, a fellow Stonehill College graduate of mine and dear friend of over twenty years will be making a guest spot appearance during the week of May 6th. Fiercely loyal to his friends and to the creative works that inspire his imagination, Robert is sure to bring an enthusiasm to whatever topic he chooses. He’s a devotee of George Lucas, Lord of the Rings (for which he even has a credit on imdb.com), and the artwork of Joe “Mad” Madureira. And he is a fine artist in his own right, published in a college magazine, whose work will also be featured by the Great Stories brand in the future. With a mind full of incredible ideas and the talent to put them into action, we at Great Stories have hopes that you will one day find his work available in a commercial capacity in a time not too far away.
Thank you all for welcoming these fine people into the Great Stories family and giving them a chance to inspire you.
See you next week for our May movie previews. Summer blockbusters start here!
