Child actor Hannah Marks grew up to write and star in ‘Banana Split.’ Oh, and she directs now, too

Hannah Marks turned 24 while directing her first feature film – though she says she looked even younger than that. “So definitely, in the first few days, people did not realize I was one of the directors,” Marks, who is now 26, says of “After Everything,” the 2018 release she co-wrote and co-directed with Joey Power. “Like, there were a few days of people asking me to get them coffee and stuff, and I was like, ‘I can’t; I’m busy.

So How's The Quarantine Going For Everybody?

I thought I might use the blog to create a little diary of the Coronavirus quarantine. Sure... this might not be entertaining for you to read, but since everything going on right now is quite unprecedented I figured it might be interesting to look back on at some point in the future, hopefully when things are a bit more "normal."

Kenny Rogers, Who Brought Country To Pop And Sang With The Muppets And Dolly Parton, Has Died At 81

Rogers was the original country star selling out arenas, long before Garth Brooks or Shania Twain in the 1990s. “Rogers’s popularity stemmed partly from his genial persona and rugged good looks, but also from his ability to inhabit his material, which, he often said, was of two main types: love songs like ‘You Decorated My Life’ and narrative ballads like ‘The Gambler’ and ‘Lucille.'” – The New York Times
