On May 24th, “The Lazarus Effect” by director Lance Bangs and executive producer Spike Jonze premieres on HBO, YouTube, and Channel 4 (UK). By taking the ARV medicine – 2 life-saving pills that cost around 40 cents a day – in as few as 40 days, the medicine can help bring people back to life. Aids has killed more than 20 million people in Africa. In 2002 only 50,000 people had access to the medication due to its high cost. Today, thanks to reduced costs and increased access, more than 3 million people in Africa are now receiving treatment. Still, 3,800 people die every day in sub-Saharan Africa from AIDS. “The Lazarus Effect” film shows that this needn’t be the case. Source: http://www.joinred.com/
I liked it, especially the twist at the end.
If you haven’t seen Who Killed the Electric Car, check it out.
For everyone who has Google’d themselves, this movie is for you (hint: everyone has probably Google’d themselves at least once). Office Space is one of my favorite movies and in it Michael Bolton proclaims that the famous singer is a “no talent clown” (he actually added another a word in there but this is a family oriented blog) ever since he became famous and stole his identity/name. Can you imagine having someone ultra famous with your exact same name? Luckily I reserved jeremyperson.com years ago and Jeremy#2 below has jeremyaperson.com (bet he hates me). If you are a Jeremy Person, I want to talk to you. It is so strange to think we have the same name. When I was in Portland over the weekend I was going through one of the “Street of Dreams” condos and one of the agents had his card on a desk with the name of “Ryan Person”. I haven’t met another “Person” outside of my family so if you are a “Person”, contact me!
