The Player! Actor and musician Tim Robbins was born today! If you’ve never seen “The Player,” I highly recommend it. It’s a movie (within a movie) about Hollywood and some of its many facades. I am very happy that I’ve had the chance to tell Tim Robbins how much I loved that film and he was very cool.
Tim shares the same birthday as some other cool people including Red Hot Chili Peppers bass player Flea, The Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir, actresses Suzanne Sommers and Angela Lansbury as well as writer Oscar Wilde and Noah Webster (yes, the man that wrote the first US Dictionary).
Once and for all, please honor the purpose of Mandela Day by doing random acts of kindness, no matter how small, as often as you can. Together, we can make the world a better place.
My series of photos from Mandela Day, a 46664 Celebration, that took place at Radio City Music Hall in NYC on July 18, 2009 has been almost as popular as the event itself. I am pleased to show you all some worldwide exclusive photos from the grand finale all star jam.
