'Music Man Murray' Gershenz Dies at 91
Forward - over 3 years
If you saw Richard Parks’ 2011 documentary short, “Music Man Murray,” then you’ll know that Murray Gershenz was looking for a long time to sell his famous used record business (also called Music Man Murray) and its collection of more than 300,000 records. Gershenz, who opened his landmark store on Los Angeles’ Santa Monica Boulevard in 1962, did finally manage to find a buyer. This past June, four tractor-trailers showed up and hauled away the records to New York, where Gershenz was born in 1922. Believing that his beloved collection was in good hands and would be kept together, Gershenz passed away just a couple of months later. The New York Times reported that he died at the age of 91 on August 28, leaving behind two sons, a daughter, two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren — and, of course, countless customers who appreciated his vast knowledge and extreme love of music of all genres. His wife Bobette Cohen Gershenz, who encouraged him to open the store and worked in ...

Dr. Corey Allan: Would You Want to Be Married to You?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The dominant question for humans isn't what's my purpose or why am I here, it's what's wrong and how do we fix it. This question shapes our worldview, our parenting, even our our relationships. We live in a fix it world. As if everything going wrong in the world can be "fixed." This idea is largely responsible for the consumerism in today's societies. If you believe there is something wrong or missing in your life, then some company or industry has a product that will correct what's wrong, or at least make you feel better about it. Watch any amount of TV and you'll be bombarded with this idea. The problem with this idea -- focusing solely on what's wrong is a black hole. When it comes to marriage and relationships, this type of thinking is common. How often do you hear or say "When are you going to...?" or "You always..." Arguments in marriage come along due to focusing on what's wrong. It's important to realize that in committed relationships, ...

    More Details Hide Details Starring in the film was James Dean, who played Jim Stark, a disaffected teenager who has moved to Los Angeles to start a new life, only to find more problems in his new home. After a show at the Griffith Observatory, Buzz challenges Jim to a knife fight, which Stark wins by subduing Buzz with his switchblade. During the filming of the knife fight, both Allen and Dean, aficionados of method acting, used real knives and Dean was injured when Allen lunged at him with his knife. The gang challenges Jim to a chickie run, in which two stolen cars will be raced towards a cliff and the winner will be the last one to jump out. Before the two are about to embark on their death race, Buzz and Jim stand at the edge of the cliff, looking down at the fall they might face if they remained in their cars to the end. As Jim questions why they are going ahead with this race, Buzz responds "You got to do something, don't you". Allen would later recall that his classic line was "the underlying question of each generation. Here we are: What do we do?". As the cars are heading to the cliff, Buzz attempts to jump out but is unable to escape when his leather jacket gets caught on the car door handle and is killed in the crash at the beach below.
