RIP Richard Attenborough


R.I.P Richard Attenborough. You breathed life into many characters, including my favorite John Hammond, the fictional creator of Jurassic Park. Thank you Mr. Hammond for sharing your dream to capture the imaginations of an entire planet. Most people don’t realize what the movie Jurassic Park means to me, and how every aspect of it has inspired me and my career. It is the one movie and soundtrack that makes me feel like a child again, in 2nd grade, watching wide-eyed in the theater, wishing Hammond’s dream was real. “Creation is the act of sheer will” and with that, you “spared no expense.” Dream on, Mr. Petticoat Lane.
