This weekend we are walking to support No More Homeless Pets in Los Angeles! We are with the Dog Pack for Angel City Pit Bulls, which works in particular to educate, advocate, and celebrate this wonderful and often misunderstood breed! We will proudly be walking with our own personal ambassador, Brucely Draven, The handsomest hunk in town. Johnny Badass jokingly refers to him as “Bad Dog” because no matter how bad he tries to make him, this dog just keeps on being good. Anyway here’s our page if any friends or family out there would like to support our efforts and help the dogs of L.A. this weekend. Every little bit counts! Thanks!
The trailer for the feature film, Zombie Hamlet, is now up on itunes. I am not in the trailer, but in the film I do a mean Charlton Heston impersonation, and I must admit, its pretty darn funny! Let’s just say my scene looks something like this, but with a funny little twist.
(by the way, the beautiful Stephanie Lemelin plays the Linda Harrison role)
Here is a link to the trailer on itunes, Check it out!:
The film was directed by John Murlowski. Here is the synopsis:
First-time director Osric Taylor finally manages to get his dream film financed, Shakespeare’s HAMLET–set against the epic backdrop of the American Civil War. He heads to a small town in Louisiana to start filming when production funding suddenly dries up. Osric agrees to take up southern matron Hester Beauchamp’s offer to finance his movie as long as he throws some zombies in the film to attract a wider audience. When Hester suddenly dies mid-shoot, and with the local sheriff and ambitious news reporter Shine Reynolds hot on his trail, Osric is thrust into precarious and hilarious situations in a desperate effort to keep ZOMBIE HAMLET alive.
Let me know what you think!
What is NKLA you ask? It stands for ‘No-Kill Los Angeles’… and I couldn’t be more excited! NKLA is a coalition of animal welfare organizations and passionate individuals, led by Best Friends Animal Society. (Our non-profit, Angel City Pit Bulls, is of course a coalition member).
Please support the NKLA campaign by spreading the word and maybe even buying one of these awesome T-shirts! I can attest that the material is VERY comfortable and it fits great. Thank you for supporting this awesome campaign!
Here is an excerpt from NKLA.org (please visit for more info!):
We are the best friends of animals. We are a movement. We are a coalition of organizations and passionate individuals dedicated to making Los Angeles a no-kill city. Last year more than 17,000 healthy or treatable animals were killed in L.A. City Shelters. Each one an individual. Each one a loving pet worth saving. 17,000. That number should be zero. And it can be. There is a solution, but only if the people who care work together. Join us and help make L.A. into NKLA.
Angel City Pit Bulls will be at the Best Friends Super Adoption this weekend. Please come hang out and support us and other great animal rescue organizations including my new favorite campaign: NKLA!

SEEKING FOSTER FAMILIES! A theme of this event is “no pets left behind” – Angel City Pit Bulls supports the many shelter groups that will be at the event with their animals looking for homes. The best way we can support our shelters is to help them achieve their goal of no pets having to return to the shelter after the event. The only way we can do that, however, is to have foster homes ready and waiting! Are you able to offer a temporary safe haven for a pit bull in need? Then, we need you! Visit our page about Fostering today by going to our website:
We cover all expenses, food, supplies, training, and any medical needs. Help us save lives by joining our foster family today!
SEEKING VOLUNTEERS! Are you interested in coming and helping us for the day? We love our volunteers, and are always looking for more! Thanks to our generous sponsors, Einhorn Insurance, every new volunteer with receive a complimentary Angel City Pit Bulls t-shirt!

Bruce Lee inspired me to take up martial arts, and start my career in the film industry. What many people do not know, is that many of Bruce Lee’s philosophies are very similar to those that I teach in Krav Maga. Here is a thoughtful quote from Bruce Lee and I couldn’t agree more with it.
We must be able to take on any form, improvise, and adapt to our environment while defending ourselves. Here is how Bruce Lee compared that concept, to being like our most important resource, water…
Everyone needs to know how to do Krav Maga, even cartoons! Check out Bart Simpson getting a lesson in Krav Maga! Love this!
I hope to see him in one of my upcoming courses, but for now, its just funny to watch him get his butt kicked:
I recently attended a great event called 4 Days 9 Dogs put on by ‘Hollywood Least Wanted’ (Hollywoodleastwanted.org)
Here is a picture from the event beautiful actresses Stephanie Lemelin and Kaitlin Doubleday:

Please support Hollywood Least Wanted, here is what they are all about:
Hollywood Least Wanted is a 501c3 non for profit arts organization whose goal is to make a difference in the community where it exists, both in Hollywood and in the larger Los Angeles community. HLW sponsors produces and publicizes charitable arts events that raise funds for organizations that serve the underprivileged, victims of abuse, homeless teens and abandoned animals, as well as other deserving recipients.
Hollywood Least Wanted marries its founders’ passion for the arts with their commitment to improving the community where they live. Co-founders Rachel Schmeidler, Merritt Hicks and Brigid Ryan attended Carnegie Mellon University together, where they bonded over their shared passion for the arts and their desire to transcend the traditional boundaries between the performing and visual arts. After graduation, they moved to Los Angeles, where they became aware of the gulf between the glamour and celebrity of Hollywood and the reality of poverty and suffering that afflicts so many in Los Angeles.
Hollywood Least Wanted started with events to benefit homeless and abandoned animals (a passion of Rachel’s) and has subsequently expanded its focus to include events that assist the homeless, runaway teens, and other worthwhile causes. HLW is always looking for new partner organizations with whom it can collaborate on innovative charity arts events. Hollywood Least Wanted’s founding board members also include Katy Winn, a photojournalist specializing in fashion and entertainment, Ju Park, managing partner of Parsus LLP, a Los Angeles law firm.
