This was the TED Talk video that was shown right before I went on at TEDx Istanbul and the only thing I was thinking was how am I going to follow this guy…LOL!!!
It’s definitely worth the watch…enjoy!!!
I encourage everyone to answer the same question for themselves!!!
James Duane, a professor at Regent Law School and a former defense attorney, tells you why you should never agree to be “interviewed” by the police without your lawyer.
Not one to only offerÂ one side of the story, check out the police officer of 25 plus years response…it’s quite revealing… (more…)
Me speaking about “Thank You And You’re Welcome” with the lovely Angela Yee on June 3, 2009.
Minutes before going live, I noticed how calm I was…I mean really freaking calm!Â It was almost as if it wasn’t happening in real life and was still just a figment of my imagination.Â I was amazedÂ by howÂ the 4 minute segment felt more like 4 seconds.Â But that’sÂ normally what happens when you getÂ really caught up inÂ your moment.Â (more…)
This is a snippet ofÂ me at the Publishing Prep’s Literatti Panel Discussion: Secrets to Self-Publishing Success.
This is a snippet of my presentation at the NY State Senator Craig Johnson’s Black History Month Event held on February 26, 2009, in Elmont, NY.Â

And as always….dare2bU!
This is the last one…it was such a good conversation, that I had to post. It’s very rare for me to capture someone having a paradigm shift in real time due to my philosophies of life…and believe me when I tell you…they were ready to shut me down!!!
For all those who have read our books, this is a good example of how I apply them in life. Moments like this really get me amped to speak in front of people!!!
I really like this interview because I was able to use principles fromÂ my books in real time…enjoy!!!

…soÂ I ask you, is that necessarily a good thing!!!
My thoughts on the Obama’s 30 minute presentation.
This is the first episodeÂ of the BMT (Business Minds Thinking) Series.Â Episode 1Â featuresÂ the mega successful, yet very low key artist KAWS.
In the BMT series, the objective is to have a conversation based on the same 3 questions with various people who are successful in their field. The goal is to reveal that behind every success…there is a business mind thinking!
Behind the scenes withÂ me discussing the meaning ofÂ some of myÂ art with Jeff Thedore, Jersey Journal’s Arts Editor.
I really dig doing these!!!
…and this makes sense to me!!!
Kinetic Sculpture at the BMW Museum
And with that said, I’M CURRENTLY BOOKING SPEAKING DATES!!!
I’ve really, really, really taken my time in creating a very powerful as well as interactive presentation of my proven techniques of combining both critical and creative thinking, with one key idea…Become Better! And not to give too much a way, I’ve titled it…”Thinking Changed My Life!”
If you have a organization, business or school who you think can benefit from such a presentation, please contact Armand Harris (email@example.com) for further details.
PLEASE NOTE: I’m pretty sure that my appearance fee is much more feasible than Will’s…for now, LOL!!!
WARNING: Before you click play, be sure your mind is open!!!
Unfortunately, I can relate to this sceniroÂ all toÂ well…but I’m getting better ever day, soÂ please be patience withÂ me.
With that said, do you think any relationship could survive with that type of direct communication that has no hurtful intentions to them?
Doesn’t life seem to get easier once your goal is set?
I can’t stress it enough…know your audience!!!
Doug Pray’s documentary “Surfwise” is the tale of two parents who raised their nine children in a 24-foot camper – an experience their daughter would later describe as “like weird monkeys in a small monkey cage.”
Dorian “Doc” Paskowitz and his wife, Juliette, both avid surfers and radical thinkers, lived as nomads for decades with their eight sons and one daughter. In a rattletrap camper, they crossed the U.S., eschewing schools and living off the grid. “I just wanted my kids around me, surfing with me, education be damned,” says Paskowitz.
Now this is one of those type of movies that really requires you to open you mind. Although the concepts are very complex, the presentation is done in a very simplistic method.
Some of my not so smart friends think that I’m a weird-o because I get a slight erection when I watch stuff like this!!!
Yep, this is actually one of the many ways that I like to have fun…playing with a wooden puzzle from ThailandÂ just because the box said “Test Your Genius”.
NYC – Sherry Bitting, Senior Public Relations & Marketing Manager/Complex Magazine and me discussing my blog and books.
Please pardon the bad lighting (I know at times it looked like I’m in the witness protection program)…this was me experimenting with a new camera. I felt compelled to share when the content turned out so good!!!
This art exhibition at the Freud Museum in London examines cultural fear and paranoia in the Western world.
The artist in me found this video just freaking inspirational!!! I couldn’t help but love how this creative expression invokes the masses to think…and better yet, to reveal their thoughts! All types of concepts came to me while watching!

That’s way too much power for one woman to have……and I must admit…I’m kind of jealous!
(Thank You And You’re Welcome toÂ www.atribecallednext.com where I jacked this the video)
This is what happens when someone is blessed with a lot of confidence but not so much…uhmm, I’m really trying to be polite here…lets just say good sense and/or a dental plan.
Please peep the book that he’s is holding!
WARNING: This video from 1974Â will change how you look at pop culture!
This isn’t meant to be a diss…but it is what it is.
…I know a gang beat down when I see one!
The idea of Pedaled Phone Calls was created for those who live in parts of the world where cell phones are still a luxury. Here in America, these three wheeled bikes are usually used to sell ice-cream, pop-corn, or hot dogs. But in Nicaragua, the same kind of vehicle brings a pedal powered mobile to the people in need of making a call. Ten minutes of pedaling produces an hour of battery life.
ThisÂ videoÂ proves my previous point perfectly…THE MEDIA IS NOT BASED ON REALITY!Â Â
Now I do give props to the creators ofÂ the video.Â I really dig how they made a clearly “don’t try this at home”Â video lookÂ so amateurish.
Now for all the “Little Johnnys” who actually think that by putting onÂ a pair ofÂ sneakers by Kobe Bryant will some how allow them to leapÂ over a car speeding towards them…uhmm…I’m sure the entire medicalÂ profession will beÂ leapingÂ withÂ joy byÂ your decision!
This was one of my first clients when I started my first business, ‘S.T. grafics’ from my living room in Chicago.Â He’s always been a funny dude, especially when he goes off the cuff during his routine.Â He told me that he once used one of my joke…and of course for this blog’s purposes,Â my joke brought down the house.Â In this clip, watchÂ howÂ he puts the interracial couples on blast…not like there’s anything wrong with that, but I’m just saying!Â

IÂ participated inÂ a couple of the editing sessions for this one, so I guess it’s no surprise that I really like how it turned out.Â Once again, Kanye and Hype tapped into their genius creating another instant classicÂ videoÂ that will soon be the new standard!
P.S. – Hype, thanks again for sharingÂ the pics…and you know which ones!
I think this is a great example of the power of perspective and why it’s important to make the necessary efforts to see things as they truly are. This really applies in regards to dealing with the media. We are constantly being hammered with the extremely limited perspectives of others. (more…)
