Well, one place on the internet says 2016 and another says on this day in 2014 but hey, either way, it's always a good time to check out #HenryAndMe. ☺️ https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/B01JMD8TOY/ref=atv_dl_rdr
It's also National Thrift Shop Day so I gotta shout out Screaming Mimis! Screaming Mimi’s - and of course Laura Wills, the owner - totally inspired me. I shopped all around the city and always went back to Screaming Mimi’s because it had this fun approach to fashion. It had humor, it had wildness, it had sexiness, it had the old-movie vibe. And I had always felt like I was born in an old movie. To me, the whole Screaming Mimi’s look wasn’t just a style—it was a movement. Do you have any cool thrift shops where you live?

I’ll never forget in 2005, when I was presented by the Human Rights Campaign with their National Equality Award, for my advocacy for equality for the community. When I accepted the award I decided to sing “True Colors” because I’m not a speechmaker. Afterward, I went backstage and there was a woman just sitting and staring. It was Judy Shepard. We locked eyes, and Judy started crying, and we hugged for a good moment. It had been so profound to hear her speak about the son she had been robbed of. We started talking and what we eventually did was take the Matthew Shepard Foundation's purple “Erase Hate” bracelets and put them on special cards that shared information about Matthew and the foundation, with a special message from me. Matthew had said he wanted to get into politics, and in the end, through his mother, he did. Happy Birthday Judy Shepard! Thank you for all that you do. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

I can't believe it's been 19 years since The Opportunists came out! Did you see it? - Chris Walken, Actor Christopher Walken, Peter McDonald. https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/0PDLT9947O6C0YY6RJ59XN0IWV/ref=imdbref_tt_wbr_aiv?tag=imdbtag_tt_wbr_aiv-20
Originally I wanted to write it alone and then I realized, fat chance I’ll have the time to write the way I was imagining I would be able to write. I don’t know what I was thinking, but you see stories about writers where they go for a walk, they come back, they type all day. Jancee Dunn is a rocker. She worked for Rolling Stone and she had written her own memoir, so I felt that she was perfect for me. I’m not Ernest Hemingway. I’m gonna write how I talk. I’ve always felt even as a songwriter that the rhythm of speech is in itself a language for me. It's #BookLoversDay. If you haven't read my memoir yet, click here to get your copy! It's good. I swear. ☺️📝📚
