    So much fun! They sound better live than they do on a recording. Adam Levine is a total show man!

And now a word from Batman......
Soundtrack for the end of the world. When POTUS, who has the ability to launch nuclear weapons, goes to the #UNGA and calls for the destruction of another country who also has nukes and an equally mentally ill leader, the only sensible thing to do is eat chocolate 🍫and turn up the Edith Piaf. 🚀
My dad (left) and his dear friend, Jay. We lost Jay last week and it's been heartbreaking. I've known Jay my entire life. His son Wes and I have been friends since the day we were born.
.
Jay was always so fun. He took Wes and I to the beach, the movies and he had the best laugh. .
When my dad and Jay were together they were like little kids, laughing and joking around.
.
Jay loved his Pepsi, his pets (especially his beloved German Shepherd, Chica) and most of all his family.
.
Jay had a heart as big as the San Joaquin Valley where he lived, raised his family and helped educate thousands of kids.
.
.We love you, Jay. Hope you and my pop are laughing together again. ♥️
Sending big ♥️ to @roche1300 and @kellyjacksonxo --hoping Papa Dave is on the mend and feeling better, soon!
Hang in there, Florida. And holding good thoughts for the SC crew (@plamotte & @olivier_blanchard) and Team Georgia (@connorlesniak & @jwmaldonado ) as Irma grooves up north! 👊🏽
If you love blues music, this album is worth a listen. I mean it's King James and all the deep feels. What's not to love?
Happy Birthday, Pop. Miss you something fierce.

My pal @joshshipp has a brand new book out for parents (teachers, uncles, aunts, youth leaders), “The Grown-Up’s Guide to Teenage Humans, a practical guide for understanding teens.
.

Harvard’s Center on the Developing Child found that every kid who succeeds in the face of adversity has had at least one committed relationship with a supportive adult. .
.

Josh’s message is simple, he wants to help parents be there for the kid in your life, and let them know that you see under the surface of their troubles. You see what they can be—and what they can be is amazing.
.

Be that one caring adult – that person who changes a kid’s life with a simple, caring act. It starts with you, and it starts now. 🎯
.

Once an at-risk foster kid, Josh was facing down a bleak future (go check out his TED talk on his YouTube) that was likely to include prison or homelessness—until he met the grown-up who changed his life. Enter Rodney, the foster parent, and caring adult, who refused to quit on Shipp and finally got him to believe in himself.
.

Drawing from his own experience as a teen expert who has been featured on @Oprah Winfrey Show, @goodmorningamerica, @nytimes, @MTV and even had his own tv series on @lifetimetv, Josh offers practical and achievable strategies for you to be that one caring adult.

I’m a big fan of @mattzhaig and his books. The best part is that he’s foremost a really good human AND then a great author. So when I heard about his new book, #HowToStopTime, I was really excited to get a copy when it gets released in the states.
.

But when I saw the cover art for the UK edition, I knew I couldn’t wait until February for the USA edition and risk not having the same great cover.
.

So, I tracked down a indie bookstore in the UK who was willing to send a copy across the pond, through the plains, and up and over the Rockies and the Wasatch to California--and today it arrived! The cover is beautiful and the book is really a great read. (No spoilers from me!).
.

But I will leave you this little bit of Matt’s keen observation on life in youth obsessed Los Angeles:
.
.
"The thing is....in California, the only way to look like you are getting older is to look like you are getting younger. If you can move your forehead over the age of forty then people become very suspicious.”
.
LA peeps, is he right or what?!
.
Thanks, Matt for sharing your talents, your stories and your tweets (seriously, go follow him on Twitter. He’ll keep you sane during the Trump Occupation)! UK friends, go grab this book. USA friends, look for it in February 2018.
.🎯

Today in Utah, a whole lotta awesome people are getting together to let LGBTQ teens know that they matter. Today, the silence ends.
.

In Utah, teen suicide remains the leading cause of teen deaths in the state. LGBTQ+ youth are more than eight times more likely to commit suicide when compared to their straight peers, and account for as much as 40% of the current homeless youth population.
.

Of this 40%, almost half of the youth cite family rejection, abuse, and abandonment as the leading cause. There’s no doubt that religion plays a major factor in a family’s decision to abandon and abuse their youth.
.

For this reason, @DanReynolds, the lead singer of Imagine Dragons, has decided to take action by creating the #LOVELOUD Fest, uniting musical artists and guest speakers in support and acceptance of LGBTQ youth.
.

All proceeds from this concert will go to the LOVELOUD Foundation which lends support to various Utah-based charities such as @encircletogether , as well as national charities, such as The Trevor Project. Each one of these organizations are dedicated to promoting acceptance and providing much needed resources to LGBTQ youth.
.

Be sure to follow @LoveLoudFest and #LOVELOUD on Twitter and Instagram today to see how many people are coming out to support teens and prove that LOVE TRUMPS HATE! ❤
When Irish eyes are smiling.
58 years ago, in Westwood, these two got hitched. Together, along with two kids, a bunch of cats and a whole lotta good times, (and a few bumps), they stitched together quite the adventure.

I miss you, Pop. But nowhere as much as your bride does. ❤
Yesterday was a tough day. I felt a pit in my stomach as I listened to the POTUS defend Nazi's, the KKK and other assorted deplorables.
.

This morning I was uplifted while listening to Heather Hyer's mother speaking at her daughters funeral. "You didn't silence her, you amplified her!"
.
I was uplifted by my conversation with @brandenharvey this afternoon. He is an amazing guy who's @goodgoodgoodco is all about highlighting the good in the world.
.
I'm uplifted by my BFF @stprovogirl and all the amazing work she does at @habitatforhumanity, literally changing lives for families in Utah.
.
Today I was even uplifted at @target watching a very annoyed tweenage sister as she patiently and sweetly tolerated her little brother.
.

The road ahead may be bumpy and there will be dark days, but if we are quiet and observant, we will always find opportunities to do good.
.
So start looking for the good that surrounds you. 🎯

King Weasel (that's me) had a very good birthday! Thank you to everyone for the love flowing through Instagram, Facebook, IM, DM and cards (like this awesome pirate card from Aunt Em)! I'm a lucky guy!

Hey. Looks like Hollywood is closed. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

Saw this cookie at @Starbucks and had to resist breaking into "Under the Sea." If @jenthaglund had been there, we would have reenacted the whole damn movie! (Miss yah, J!)
