  1. Hey James, what is the name of that JFK documentary?

  2. Hey guys, thought I’d let you know I recently read (and finished) the Arnold Schwarzenegger bio Total Recall. It was a ripper, worth a read. There is more to Arnie than you may expect. He’s a smart guy with a really interesting story. So Joel get cracking and finish it off.

  3. Im getting it!! #Inspired
