I was at the THE TODAY SHOW on May 19 08 and Kevin Spacey is a classy and professional person. If he was mad at the producers of the Today Show he did not show it in front of the many fans cheering him. He waved to the crowd and was very aprecitive of his fans.

MY my MY my ....TISK TISK , How the women are all over you. I can see a catfight in the mix of all of this. Someday, probably. Its always the ones who have the variety of creative collections in the minds of some artists , like me , to experience a gift , from a child , consider me a Einsten , I always go back to him when I need to feel understood in personality and talent. So will you consider this a communicative way to exchange ideas for the world of exppression and to express the beauty of life through art and creative , inventers. Sad , me, yes too much it is a brainstormers hell, and it weight heavier , as life goes on, You as an extremely gifted actor and performer , are to above your kind , ahaead or behind , yes your above it , like my gift ,I never realy had to learn it , I always had it. It teached me to enjoy it , I know its a blessing and im given it for purposes still comes to arriving in . Found mySelf , turning around for the many vast reasons , unfortuneatly , you have a great part in my motivation , moving my direction to start putting pieces together , through the roles you chose in a sequence of three roles.those characters that realy made my life stop, and weep for 2 weeks , I wanted to just crawl under a rock, My brain started storming ,and is the most complex series of thought im the vessle of its ship you sail the seas , perhaps someday, soon, you will let me present, or to just look at what i got , if not interested, I t would only be in respect of includeing you in the thought first . you were a major contribution to the cause, and it goes into three different areas that the industry has not seen for along time. A fresh new story for stage , and projects for well ,i wont say, but it s all about who i am and what you played in part of my arriving to take charge , I have 150 talents all in arts ,sculpting painting ,music, instruction and copywrighting, costumes, props , and make -up artist. I write poetry, better than a novel meaning it just comes out to whisper in my ear please me , it flows into a simple form of thought, im pleased. Not that any book Idea i have isnt good, its grand and just trying to piece it all together overwhemls me then i need a small break to breath and not emotional get the better of me.Im too old for this type of artisty stay inside, I am alicve to carry it and it carries me and its been my hand and foot and my secret aantidote. I need t and it needs me too. Allot to bear , I a comidean only to release stress in a creative way , and to like yyou impersonate. that is when i knew i had to research what kind of person you were your films have effected me greatly enough to change my vision , correct my steering . thank you, then davis letterman came on one night and i laughed suprizingly with delight cause you were so light and an easy yoke , you tickeld my fancy , need more of that stuff, then all the pieces collaborated simillar scenes and just by a habit of mine to visualy snapshot pics write them down the experience of ours was weird and documented how thiese thing were so wild , brainsormin me a crying woman almost 40. gee i hope im not going through no pre mentopause , im ready for that nightmare. its a wonder i have no kids , yipee for noww, i cant see my self with a child today , i live for the now, ., but i also have illstrations for a childrens book and a nother comical book and comic stripps, wrote the transcribe for a famous songwriters website and my story needs to be at least checked out in respect for where your going with it in the goals of the art and entertainment industry, I need to be , I answered my own question, you were the one asking, Im one that likes the other compontent, im a conceptual thinker writer artist designer , college and teaching developing the lesson plans the instruction booklets , taking me where , here for now . Youve made such a impact on my life, and you deserve any profitable monies by doing so , cause THIS IS THE BIG ONE "Your loyal slave,Ive been norty, show me a lesson or two. lolRenee']Renee Whaley
