Bobby Axelrod: The Man With No Heart?

Hello, all! Hope 2017 is treating you all well. I’ve managed to make it about half way through the brutal winter here in the arctic tundra known as Minnesota. It won’t be that long until warm weather will return!









Aside from counting the days until Spring, I know that we are all waiting, with baited breath, for the season two premiere of Billions! February 19th can’t get here fast enough. I’ve been keeping myself busy with re-watches of my favorite holiday gift, Billions on DVD! (Shout-out to Mr. Dazzle for knowing exactly what I wanted. I don’t think he even had to read my shopping guide…)

Can you wear out a DVD? I hope not.

In my first couple articles written for the blog, I delved into what the three zones of the body correspond to. For a quick and dirty recap: Mind, Heart, Body (I usually prefer vitality). Mind, your head. Heart, your chest. Vitality? Your pelvis. And within each of these zones, lies mind, heart and body breakdowns of their own. From head to toe, within all of our appendages, as well, macrocosm to microcosm, these three elements are all present. It’s a fascinating study that I hope to learn to teach, myself, one day!

Top Damian Lewis Moments 2016:
White House Correspondents Dinner

Happy belated Christmas, everyone! I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season. Minnesota has been quite chilly and snowy this winter, we are totally living up to our bitter, tundra-like reputation!

Painfully accurate.

Since it’s been far too dangerous to venture outside, I’ve been hunkered down inside, hiding under a blanket, getting some awesome posts written! I’m pleased to bring you a moment from the tall one’s year-specifically from Saturday, April 16th, when he headed to Washington, D.C. to attend the 2016 White House Correspondents Dinner.

This black tie shindig, thrown by the Washington Correspondents Association, happens annually at The Washington Hilton. This year marked the 102nd anniversary of this dinner! You can read in great detail about the history of this organization, and it’s relationship with the White House and the president, both present and past. The stated goal of the gathering is stated as such on their website:

“Proceeds from the White House Correspondents’ Association annual dinner go toward scholarships and awards that recognize aspiring and accomplished journalists. Auctions and raffles of WHCA DINNER tickets designed to raise money for other organizations or for commercial purposes are against the policy of the WHCA.” Continue reading “Top Damian Lewis Moments 2016:

The Many Faces of Damian Lewis, Part II

Sometimes an actor will find themselves type-cast, and the reasons for this can vary greatly. It can be the fault of a narrow-minded industry, a lazy agent, an iconic role that they find impossible to be divorced from, or simply from the actor’s own lack of range.

We are all lucky to be fans of a man who has not experienced this. Damian has had the pleasure of embodying many different types of men. And while so many of these characters have some sort of overlap(just how many times has he put on a military uniform now??), he has used his incredible skill set to create a different, iconic character in each role. Specifically, I want to talk about how he uses his body language to create believable characters that resonate. Continue reading “The Many Faces of Damian Lewis, Part II”

OK, maybe he’s not your favorite guy. But he’s the favorite guy here at the blog that bears his name. Continue reading “The Many Faces of Damian Lewis, Part I”

Life with Charlie Crews – Series Wrap Up


Hello-Holliedazzle here! Welcome, one and all, to the Life with Charlie Crews series wrap up!  In this post, we’ll all be weighing in with our highlights (and lowlights) the entire series of Life.  Let’s jump right in, shall we?


At the center of Life lies the heart and mind of a man who gets his life back, along with a $50M settlement and his LAPD badge, after 12 years in prison for a murder he did not commit. Charlie Crews is quirky and charming and funny, but vulnerable and even sinister at times. He’s a walking proof of the wide range Damian Lewis can deliver as an actor. No wonder New York Magazine calls him “the you-can’t take-your-eyes-off-him star” in Life. Damian takes a good network show and elevates it to another level.


So what do I talk about when I talk about the BEST of Life? Continue reading “Life with Charlie Crews – Series Wrap Up”
