These 'Goofy And Lovable' Photos Destroy Violent Pit Bull Stereotypes
Huffington Post - 2 months
A Florida pet photographer knows pit bulls have an image problem. Years of the dogs getting a bad rap for aggression have led many people to instinctively view any pit bull they see as scary and threatening. The stereotype contributes to pit bulls being the type of dog most likely to languish — and sometimes be euthanized — in animal shelters, and leads to policies like breed-specific legislation, which effectively sentences innocent dogs to death. That’s why photographer Adam Goldberg (no connection to the HuffPost senior editor) launched the Pit Bull Picture Project, a series of doggie portraits featuring both people’s pets and adoptable animals in shelters. The idea is similar to the celebrated work of Sophie Gamand, who photographs pit bulls in flower crowns. “I want people to picture Pit Bulls the way I do, as goofy and lovable dogs,” he told The Huffington Post in an email. “I find it so sad that they get a bad reputation in the media and have a harder time getting a ...

Jennifer Lawrence And The Problem With 'It' Girls
Huffington Post - about 1 year
I have never really been a fan of Jennifer Lawrence. One might even say that, over the past few years of her meteoric rise to fame, I have actively, enthusiastically disliked her. By actively disliked I mean something bordering dangerously on a kind of irrational hatred, the sort of irrational hatred we reserve for celebrities and people we don't know. I've always been bothered by the idea that someone is a "breath of fresh air" because she eats hot dogs and likes football. I found the novelty of Lawrence's "cool girl" persona grating. But I've realized my issues with Miss Lawrence have little to do with her, and everything to do with a Hollywood landscape so obsessed with "It girl" culture that it sets actresses up for failure and backlash.  Earlier this week, after Sunday's Golden Globes, Lawrence took some heat for  being rude to a foreign reporter in the press room who allegedly read a question to her from his phone.   "You can't live your whole life behind your phone, b ...

American Tragedy: Thousands Of Gun Deaths Since Newtown
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
One Month On the morning of his murder, Feb. 11, Devin Aryal, 9, dressed to the ticking of his race car clock. His collection of stuffed animals, won from those arcade claw games, stared back at him from their perch on his top bunk. Devin felt he had outgrown the cutesy animal prints that had adorned the walls of his Oakdale, Minn., bedroom. He was in fourth grade now, after all. Without telling anyone, he had yanked the prints off his walls one by one. He had yet to decide how to fill up the blank spaces. The night before, Devin had watched the Disney channel and played with his pirate gear and a couple of toy dinosaurs on his mother’s bed. He snuggled with her on the couch and watched more television. This had become their sleepy ritual. He’d explain the plot of the television show they were watching, or recount the highlights of his day -- a winning soccer goal, a new level beaten on one of his Nintendo DSi games. "The morning was usual," recalled Melissa Ary ...

The Price Of 'Freedom'
Huffington Post - about 4 years
WASHINGTON -- It was Christmas night when Sincere Smith, 2, found his father’s loaded gun on the living room table of their Conway, S.C., mobile home. It took just a second for Smith’s tiny hands to find the trigger and pull. A single bullet ripped into his upper right chest and out his back. His father, Rondell Smith, said he had turned away to call Sincere’s mother, who had left to visit a friend. His back was turned to the toddler, he said, for just that moment. Sincere was still conscious when his father scooped him up and rushed him to the hospital, just a few minutes away. Eleven hours earlier, Sincere Smith had woken up to Christmas -- the first that he was old enough to appreciate. His father remembered their last morning well -– his son ripping through wrapping paper, squealing with delight with each new gift -- his first bike, a bright toy barn. It was quite a sight seeing Sincere so happy around a cloud of crinkled wrapping paper. “We bought him a little ...

Adam Goldberg: Some (Unfocused) Thoughts On 'Girls'
The Huffington Post - about 4 years
So I decided to put some words down about the HBO show "Girls." I'm going to assume that anybody who is reading this has seen the show. And since I have no idea what I'm about to write, I'm just going to spit some stuff out and you can take the ride with me. Thought 1: I'm pretty sure I'm in love with Lena Dunham. Well, either I'm in love with her or I'm in love with her character, Hannah. I didn't know who Lena Dunham was until a few years ago when I was living in Los Angeles and a friend gave me a screener ("screener" is a fancy Hollywood term for a DVD) of Dunham's movie "Tiny Furniture." It's always more interesting to me to watch tiny (yep, I incorporated the word "tiny" into the description of this movie) movies rather than it is to watch "Ironman 8." The movie was a delight. Once the credits rolled on this cinematic art exhibit, my life was enriched for the better. In addition, I'd been introduced via a brightly lit LCD screen to a new creative and cultural force. ...

Adam Goldberg: I Know I'm Late, But Here Are A Few Words About 'Thriller'
The Huffington Post - about 4 years
Thriller turned 30 a few days ago. I'll be 30 in August. Michael Jackson's birthday was on August 29th. My birthday is on August 30th. The first album I ever owned was Bad. On compact disc. It came in one of those long cardboard cases that early CDs used to come packaged in. I vaguely remember, after having played that CD over and over and over again, my mom explaining to me that this musical god had produced another album that I wasn't even aware of. So I went out and got myself a copy of Thriller. I'm sitting in a conference room at The Huffington Post right now, listening to Thriller. It made sense to me to listen to the album while writing about the album. "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" is the opening track on the album. THE album. The greatest selling album in the history of recorded music. It belongs to everybody. But the experience I'm having, and have had thousands of times before this, belongs to me. "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" is my favorite track ...
