Kirk Douglas died on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at the age of 103.

It’s a sad day when you lose such an important person in the film industry. We as inpiduals can’t help but look up to actors, directors, writers and singers in the entertainment industry. We see a bit of ourselves in the people we see on screen and we want to achieve some of their success, so it cuts deep when those people we look up to pass away.

Timeless actor and Hollywood legend, Kirk Douglas, born on December 9, 1916, died on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at the age of 103.

An icon of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Douglas starred in movies such as Champion, Spartacus and The Bad and the Beautiful.

Kirk Douglas had an immensely successful career as an actor, director and author, but he also was a father to another famous actor, Michael Douglas — which meant not only did he have a successful life, but also a fulfilling one. One of four of Kirk Douglas’ kids, Michael Douglas wrote a heartfelt message on Instagram to commemorate his father’s passing, explaining that his father, “To the world, was a legend, an actor from the golden age of movies who lived well into his golden years, a humanitarian whose commitment to justice and the causes he believed in set a standard for all of us to aspire to.”

Michael Douglas went on to say that to him and his brothers, though, Kirk Douglas was “simply Dad … to his grandchildren and great-grandchild their loving grandfather, and to his wife Anne, a wonderful husband.”

50 Inspirational Kobe Bryant Quotes On Hard Work & Letting Go Of The Fears That Hold You Back From Success

Kobe Bryant believed in overcoming his fears to become the greatest person he could be.

Kobe Bryant was a legendary basketball player, completing 20 seasons in the NBA and winning five NBA world championships with the Los Angeles Lakers before his retirement in 2016. Known to be one of the greatest basketball players of all time, he often went by his self-given nickname “Black Mamba” on the court, which, to him, reminded him of who he wanted to be when he stepped into each game. In a 2015 interview with Ahmad Rashad, Bryant explained, “When I step on that court, I become [Black Mamba]. I am that killer snake. I’m stone cold, man.”

Sadly, on the morning of January 26, 2020, Kobe Bryant — along with his 13-year old daughter Gianna (Gigi) and seven other victims — lost their lives in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California.

Kobe Bryant was born with a love and passion for sports — especially basketball. His father, Joe Bryant, had his own success in the NBA until 1983, and continued to coach professional basketball ever since, so Kobe Bryant started learning the sport when he was just three years old. After playing soccer for most of his childhood in Italy, he fully embraced the game of basketball when he moved back to the United States during his high school years — he soon earned national recognition, becoming the second youngest NBA player in history as he joined the Los Angeles Lakers.

Often compared to the likes of Michael Jordan and Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant got the chance to prove his talents through his 20-season career with the Lakers, earning the title of Most Valuable Player in the NBA in 2008, becoming an 18-time NBA All-Star and a member of the All-NBA Team 15 times.

Not only was Kobe Bryant an unstoppable basketball player, but he also made a name for himself excelling in business and becoming a successful venture capitalist. He lent his name to sports industry brands and invested millions of dollars in the technology and media industries, including a sizable investment in BodyArmor that paid off well after Coca-Cola purchased a minority investment in 2014.

Kobe Bryant raised four daughters with his wife, Vanessa — 17-year-old Natalia Diamante, 13-year-old Gianna Maria-Onore, 3-year-old Bianka Bella and Capri Kobe Bryant, who was born just last June.

According to an Instagram post dedicated to his …

28 Best Bo Burnham Jokes & Funny Quotes From His Best Comedy Shows

Goodbye sadness, hello jokes.

Bo Burnham is a man of many talents — he’s a comedian, musician, actor, director, and poet. He got his start on YouTube in 2006. However, he was posting funny songs on YouTube before it became a platform that really created celebrities and careers. He was simply posting silly songs he recorded in his high school bedroom to share with his friends and family.

Bo Burnham’s YouTube videos became a hit and now they have over 200 million views.

In 2008, he signed a four-year record deal with Comedy Central Records. He also released his EP, Bo fo Sho, that year. In 2009, he recorded a half-hour Comedy Central special and became the youngest comedian, at the age of 18, to release a special on the network. His full-length album titled Bo Burnham also came out that same year.

Burnham was born and raised in Massachusetts where he graduated from an all-boys catholic school called St. John’s Preparatory School. He was involved in the theatre program and worked diligently to be on the honor roll throughout his high school years. When he graduated in 2008, he got into New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts to study experimental theatre. However, he decided to not attend and instead focus on his comedy pursuits.

In 2010, Bo Burnham released his second album called Words Words Words and recorded his first live special, of the same name, and it aired on Comedy Central. That year he was nominated for “Best Comedy Show” at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards for his Words Words Words performance.

That year he also wrote, produced, and starred in an MTV reality show satire called Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous. Each episode focused on Zach rebranding himself in hopes to become famous and it was an intelligent subversion of the reality television genre. However, placing the show on a network among the reality shows he is poking fun of caused some viewers to not understand that it was satirical, thus it was not picked up for a second season.

Bo Burnham’s third comedy special and album, What., came out in 2013 on Netflix, as well as his YouTube channel. That same year he also released his first poetry book, Egghead: Or, You Can’t Survive on Ideas Alone.

His third stand-up special, Make Happy, was released on Netflix in 2016.

20 Powerful Judy Garland Quotes That Describe What Depression Feels Like

Someday I’ll wake up when the clouds are far behind me…

Judy Garland is a household name. We’ve met her in St. Louis, attended her Easter Parade and followed her over the rainbow. She ushered our lives into Technicolor with her angelic voice and all-knowing worldly naivety. She was the face of our childhoods.

But there is a dark history that we don’t acknowledge about Garland — she was deeply and wildly depressed. She attempted suicide multiple times, and spent much of her life in a dark place in her mental health, imagining a world she perceived better by her absence.

Mental health wasn’t talked about during her time — it was taboo and distasteful to expose your pain in public. Sadly, Judy Garland wasn’t given the help she desperately needed, as it was looked down upon and mocked.

Garland has often said that she lived for the crowd. She knew she was adored by her fans, and would do anything for them. But she also knew the difference between adoration and love, and more than anything she craved to feel loved.

In recent years, some of Garland’s third husband, Sid Luft’s, written accounts of her depression were found after his passing. A lot of them told detailed accounts of her suicide attempts.

“What demons inhabited her soul just when life seemed so rich and productive? It was a gigantic puzzlement that she would poison herself … and that the toxic reaction to whatever she swallowed would create an impulse for self-mutilation,” He wrote in his book, Judy & I: My Life with Judy Garland.

It is unbearably sad to think that a woman who brought us so much joy spent her life in so much pain. We must remember we are lucky to live in a day and age full of people who are working hard to normalize the discussion of depression and other mental illnesses. We must continue to work hard to pay attention to our loved ones, and make sure that they get the help they need.

We can only hope that Judy Garland finally found peace as she made her way over the rainbow.

Here are some of the most powerful Judy Garland quotes about depression, and what it feels like to be depressed and sad:

1. We all need to believe in the other side of the rainbow.

“I’ve always taken ‘The Wizard of …

54 Unforgettably Funny Jersey Shore Quotes About Love & Living Your Best Life

Gym, Tan, Laundry and hilarity.

On December 3rd, 2009 the world was forever altered. That was the day that the Jersey Shore first premiered. We were introduced to Paul DelVecchio or “Pauly D”, Jennifer Farley or “JWoww”, Samantha Giancola or “Sammi Sweetheart”, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Nicole Polizzi or “Snooki”, Michael Sorrentino or “The Situation”.

We followed these six wonderful weirdos around Seaside Heights, New Jersey as they spent their days working in a souvenir tee-shirt store and their nights drinking and partying excessively. They were almost Shakespearean in the way that they created words and phrases, and implemented them into the modern English language with such ease and grace that I think many of us have forgotten their original origins were rooted near the beaches of New Jersey. You may recognize phrases like “DTF” and “Granade”. They all washed up on those beaches with a margarita and a spray tan and a low tolerance for alcohol.

After three seasons of the Jersey shore, MTV execs decided to take the show on the road and head down to Florida for season four. This was moderately well received, so somehow a plan was put in place to do another season on the road. In Italy. Sensing that most of the cast identified as Italian, the idea was to highlight the juxtaposition of daily life in Italy vs. the daily life of Italian-Americans on the Jersey shore. It was the strangest season of all.

No matter where in the world we found our cast, we all tuned in to laugh, cry, celebrate, fight, drink, and fist pump with our favorite cast of characters. And I think I speak for all of us when I say, I don’t regret a moment I spent watching their show.

Here are some of the best Jersey Shore quotes from the cast of the hit MTV reality TV show that we’ll never forget!

1. It’s always good to break your only rule.

“My only rule: Never fall in love at the Jersey Shore.” Ronnie Ortiz-Magro

2. The lows were low.

“You have to remember that reality shows capture your worst moments.” Nicole Polizzi (Snooki)

3. Everyone loves the situation.

“Everybody loves me, babies, dogs, ya know, hot girls, cougars. I just have unbelievable mass appeal.” Mike Sorrentino (The Situation)​

4. Laser tag is famously 18 and under.

“If that b*tch still plays laser tag,

40 Insightful Life Quotes By Author & Playwright Tony Kushner

The Great Work Begins.

Tony Kushner is a playwright, screenwriter, and author. If you are not familiar with his work, then I highly recommend you dive into one of his plays. His two-part play, Angels In America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes, is regarded as one of the best contemporary American plays. Kushner even won a Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1993 for Angels in America.

Angels in America is a seven-hour two-part play: Millennium Approaches and Perestroika. It is about the outbreak of AIDS in New York during Regan’s presidency and originally premiered on Broadway in 1993, but was recently brought back to Broadway in 2018.

In the recent production, Andrew Garfield played the leading role of Prior Walter, Nathan Lane portrayed real-life villainous lawyer Roy Cohn, and both won Tony Awards for their portrayal. If you are looking for a way to watch Angels in America right now, you are in luck because it was also turned into an HBO miniseries and Kushner wrote the script for it.

Aside from Angels in America, Tony Kushner also wrote other plays like, A Bright Room Called Day, Homebody/Kabul, Slavs!: Thinking About the Longstanding Problems of Virtue and Happiness, Hydriotaphia, as well as the book for the musical Caroline, or Change.

Tony Kushner also began writing for film in the early 2000s. In 2005, he co-wrote the screenplay for Munich which was directed by Steven Spielberg. In 2008, he worked with Spielberg again and wrote the screenplay for Lincoln, which was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay and The Oscars and the Golden Globes.

In 2016, he helped write the screenplay adaptation for the play Fences by August Wilson and worked alongside director Denzel Washington. In 2018, it was said that Tony Kushner would reunite with director Steven Spielberg to write the screenplay for West Side Story.

It seems as if Tony Kushner is always writing, but what makes him unique is that he is always re-writing. When Angels in America was revived on Broadway in 2018, he was still making significant changes to the script even during its run. Now, his play that he wrote in 1985, A Bright Room Called Day, is currently off-broadway at the Public Theatre and he is still revising it. Every night, the actors have someone off-stage to be on book for them because of how often …

15 Elton John Quotes About Music & Some Of His Most Famous Song Lyrics About Love

The Rocket Man’s best sayings.

The flashy and flamboyant Elton John is one of the most successful solo artists to grace the Earth. His mass success saw him sell over 300 million records, produce more than fifty Top 40 hits, and have 27 top 10 singles, including nine number one songs. He collaborated with lyricist Bernie Taupin to create songs that blended styles of rock and pop.

Born Reginald Kenneth Dwight in March of 1947, Elton grew up in a semi-conservative household. His parents’ affinity for music proved to be a good environment for developing his talent. At age three, Elton had taught himself how to play the piano, his instrument of choice.

John’s ascension in music came in the early 70s. Number one songs became a regularity for the singer/songwriter. His live shows garnered attention as he would wear lavish, over-the-top outfits and his iconic glasses. Of these outfits, he said “I wasn’t a sex symbol like Bowie, Marc Bolan or Freddie Mercury, so I dressed more on the humorous side, because if I was going to be stuck at the piano for two hours, I was going to make people look at me.”

Taking a break from music later that decade saw Elton announce that he was bisexual. This was not well received at the time, and the singer was taunted for his sexuality. He later came out as gay, and became an icon for the LGBTQ community.

The 80s and 90s saw Elton become an advocate for AIDS awareness. An issue which hit close to him, as he acknowledged he could have contracted the disease and lost friends to it.

Elton John’s accolades and awards are seemingly endless. He has won multiple Grammy and Brit awards along with a Tony and an Academy award. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. Four years later, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.

An astounding career for an astounding man. Elton John and lyricist collaborated to make some iconic songs. Here are some of the best Elton John quotes and song lyrics from some of his most famously known music:

1. Music heals.

Music has healing power. It has the ability to take people out of themselves for a few hours.” — Elton John

2. Feeling pain.

Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won’t heal? Your
