Today I re-launched my blog as the entry point to all of my journalistic efforts that focus on entertainment, film, sports and world travel. The title is the inspiration of my daughter who’s had a front-row seat to my work. My traveling nature is inspired by my father, John W. Childress III, a physicist who made his last overseas trip to Bejing, China, where he heard the news they had just received the Olympics. My movie passion began with my Mom, Dr. Odile Claude, who encouraged me to watch old Elvis films on Sunday afternoons and other flicks. She gave a mean rendition of “Bali Hai” from South Pacific. And I was born in Hollywood and raised on the Lakers. This blog is where all of this love merges.
