Hidden America with Jonah Ray

SCOTT CRAWLEY - Tuesday, June 21, 2016

The travel documentary show has become very popular in the last 10 years. From the rise of niche cable networks, to well-funded Youtube channels, there are a lot of avenues that explore specific destinations all over the world. When I’m taking a trip I head right to the internet (or my cable box) to get a better view of my destination. Being able to see where you’re going is huge and has changed the game for tourists. We live in a world where the unknown can be frightening and can keep us from taking risks when we travel. Travel documentaries attempt to take some of the guess work out of traveling by giving us a clear view of what we can expect to see when we take a trip outside of our local bubbles.   More


Dear Jean-Claude Van Damme Letter

Dear John... Claude Van Damme,

Let me start by saying that I've always considered myself to be your #1 fan since I first witnessed you gracefully kicking ass on the big screen in “Bloodsport” when I was only 9 years old. I got into martial arts because of your influence, and my current career in the entertainment industry can easily be attributed to how I analyzed your films' editing aesthetics while growing up. All of my friends and family have accepted the fact that I can laugh WITH you during the self-deprecating times, and I’m always the first person to jump to your defense when someone laughs AT you... But this time around, you’ve made me cry. But just to clarify, they were definitely not happy tears in response to your uninspired performance in “Pound of Flesh”.   More
