More Money is Great But the Goal Should Be to Enjoy It

For years, I tried to stretch my money to its maximum potential. Moving money across different online savings accounts for better rates, taking money out of my checking account as soon as it’s there, paying bills on the last possible day to get more interest,…, the list goes on. Basically, whatever you can think of to earn a few extra dollars or two of interests, chances are good that I’m doing it. My motto was simple – a dollar is better than no dollar. It was fun at the beginning, but as the ...

Creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda was in the middle of writing the songs for Disney’s upcoming animated film Moana. And the cast and crew had taken on the seemingly impossible task of filming their show for a feature film that had no distributor and no studio over the ...

‘We Are Freestyle Love Supreme’ Trailer: Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hip-Hop Improv Group Takes the Spotlight

If you remember watching the early days of the American version of Whose Line is it Anyway? in the late ’90s and early 2000s, you probably recall a game in which performer Wayne Brady would essentially freestyle his way through a song based on a suggestion from the audience. But he wasn’t the only one doing hip-hop improv around that time. There was also Freestyle Love Supreme, a small improv group comprised of future big names like Lin-Manuel Miranda.
