Martin In my years in this industry, easily 80% of the notes I’ve gotten from BS&P have been with regards to nudity and sexuality. The rest were mainly profanity and logos.

It is universally praised as one of the greatest shows ever produced, and some critics claim that it is a better quality program than HBO’s higher-profile series’ The Sopranos and Six Feet Under.

Nashville Notes - Day 2 (Part 2)
3/13/2012 The Grand Ole Opry We left for the Opry in the late afternoon, after eating at the local Logan’s Roadhouse. The seats we purchased were on the second level balcony, and we had a very good view of the stage.

I Love This Song Of Ice and Fire!
The other day I tweeted this statement: I’m 422 pages into #AClashofKings. I haven’t so thoroughly enjoyed a book series since Harry Potter. You can quote me on that! -@JesseBlume28 I thought I’d take the time to elaborate on that a little bit more. To say that I was a big Harry Potter fan as child is like the saying that Antartica is rather cold, or that the surface of...
