Ashley is an award-winning journalist/author/blogger who has written for Playboy, Toronto Star, Movie Entertainment, Sports Illustrated, Maclean's and others. He's interviewed various "leaders" in their fields, including: Oscar winners (Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Lawrence, Alicia Vikander, Jane Fonda, Mira Sorvino, Geena Davis, Anthony Hopkins); Grammy winners (Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Ice Cube, Pete Townshend); MVPs in sports (Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Wayne Gretzky, Kobe Bryant); and, business leaders (Amazon's Jeff Bezos). He has an upcoming novel, REJEX, coming out on Pulp Hero Press. And he has written several episodic TV shows, appeared on CNN, and blogged for Mademan, Medium, GritDaily and HuffPost.
My upcoming novel, REJEX, imagines that “On a hidden planet somewhere in the galaxy, there's a culture clash between a heartless, high-tech society and a world full of ancient magick. Led by a teen rebel called Aiya, a band of rejected outliers revolts against a bullying Big Brother.”
Superbly talented and glamourous British actress Thandie Newton glides into the Press area for Emmy winners — she’d just scooped up the Supporting Actress in Drama for her role as Maeve in Westworld. She’s all elegance in a bubblegum-hue, one-shoulder, Brandon Maxwell gown. Seemingly unprepared, she’d just cracked up the live audience at the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, opening her Emmy acceptance speech with: “I don’t even believe in God but I’m going to thank Her tonight.” Newton is nothing if not always honest and feisty even in a couture dress.

“It was a personal epiphany. A few years ago, I was staying in a Ritz Carlton hotel and accidentally found a red LED lighting spot on the mirror over the washbasin. I touched it, then a TV program magically showed up on the mirror. I discovered it was a waterproof mirror TV. After that, I consciously checked what televisions they used in hotel bathrooms I was visiting. I soon found that luxury, new or refreshed hotels were increasingly using mirror TV’s or waterproof TV’s in their bathrooms. Some installed the mirror TV’s over the washbasin, some installed the waterproof TV’s (non-mirror) near the bathtub. I realized that the waterproof TV would be a growing trend for the bathroom, including at home, in wet or humid environments — bathroom, kitchen, pool area and even a spa, And you could continue watching your daily news or blockbuster entertainment programs!” — Luke Liu, co-founder of visual display manufacturer, SWI/ShineWorld Innovations.
