Video: Imagine All The People - A Song of Hope by James Gottfried

The following is from James Gottfried. The video is AMAZING. Please watch and share it.

I am happy to share with you the debut of the "IMAGINE ALL THE PEOPLE" music video! #imagineallthepeople

We are living in a very different world right now and we need human connection more than ever. So this project gathered 80 people together virtually to offer their voices of hope to those who feel isolated, sad, disconnected, alone, even those who are strong but could use the boost. This video contains a mashup of 4 songs that inspire togetherness, love, strength and camaraderie. As you watch this, sing with us, smile with us and know you are not alone. Share this so the whole world will know that there will be a tomorrow, that there is hope.

Special thanks to everyone who participated in this project! I hope this inspires other to engage in their own creative outlet!

Comfort TV For Your Coronavirus Quarantine - Xena (Of Course!)

The coronavirus is making Netflix and quarantine into the new Netflix and chill. Google, IBM, Microsoft and loads of other companies are encouraging employees to work from home. If you’re one of these lucky few, we know you’ll be diligently typing from 9 to 5 even if you’re in PJs or a birthday suit. Commutes suck, but working from home can make you go a little stir crazy.

Normally, popping out to a coffee shop or bar would keep you from feeling like a modern digital hermit. However, sipping a latte through a straw while wearing a respirator isn’t a great look. If you’re feeling cooped up and stressed out but can’t leave the house, a marathon of your favorite TV shows may be the best medicine. Besides, your boss will never know. Here’s a list of 10 of the best bingeable comfort TV series to help you keep calm and carry on.

'Xena: Warrior Princess'

Lucy Lawless dominated TV, the ancient world and our adolescent sex fantasies in six glorious seasons of Xena: Warrior Princess. It may be campy and so '90s, but between Sam Rami’s humor, the incredible guest stars and that kiss, you’ll be watching this one on repeat no matter what happens with the coronavirus.

5 TV spin-offs that eclipsed their originals Including Xena!

From 'Frasier' to 'The Simpsons', we'd argue that several spin-offs have surpassed their predecessors. If you go back through the history of the small-screen, we’d argue that several spin-offs have surpassed their predecessors. Here’s our pick.

Just like the aforementioned Frasier, Xena was only supposed to have a brief tenure on television. In fact, the original intention was for her to appear as a villain in just three episodes of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys’ first season. It didn’t take long for its creators to see the massive potential in the character, though.

Not only did they turn her into a hero over this three episode arc, but work immediately began on the spin-off series, Xena: Warrior Princess, which debuted less than a year after Hercules’ pilot. The six seasons and 134 episodes of Xena went on to make much more of a cultural impact, too. Thanks to the help of its devout fanbase, star Lucy Lawless became an icon, it was followed by its own comic-book series, and was a huge influence in the direction of other television series, especially when it came to the depiction of female characters.
