JIMMIE LEE THE JERSEY OUTLAW DANGEROUSLY FUNNY- COMEDY REALITY TV
® LETTER FROM THE EDITOR Welcome readers to our Hollywood Monthly Magazine. On our Cover is The Jersey Outlaw, Jimmie Lee. Jimmie Lee has created a unique brand of comedy on the street in the vain of Don Rickles and Rodney Dangerfield. He combines one-liners, hilarious insults (never truly mean) and outrageous interactions with the public that are rarely politically correct - but it’s all good natured. A master improviser, Jimmie Lee’s comedy is a highly entertaining, high energy, over the top street performance that creates pandemonium and mayhem, as he travels all over the country with his comedy reality TV show, appropriately named, “Dangerously Funny”. We are also proud to feature Dr. Gamhom Nalanchang, better known to her patients as “The Ganja Witch.” Her name sounds like the title of a Hollywood movie, but it’s steeped in the reality of curing human illnesses through the medicinal properties of cannabis. Dr. Nalanchang is the President and Founder of “Cancer Hope Village” in Laos and Thailand. Believe me when I say she is fighting the good fight. Her commitment as a doctor to find a cure for cancer is the true Hollywood story. We are honored to have the amazing Dr. Gamhom Nalanchang gracing our Cover. As always, we thank all of you for your consistent love and support. We are who we are because of YOU. We wish you all peace and happiness!

Jimmie LEE THE JERSEY OUTLAW
“Dying is easy. Comedy is hard.” Whether that famous line is attributed to Donald Wolfit, Edmund Gwenn, Gregory Peck or Jack Lemmon, it makes NO SENSE to the original “ Jersey Outlaw-Jimmie Lee”. For Jimmie Lee, comedy is all too easy. It’s like inhaling and exhaling air. It’s how he communicates. That is to say, Jimmie Lee is a “Wise Guy”. You’re never going to get a straight answer from Jimmie Lee, you’re going to get a funny answer, sprinkled with “brutal honesty”. If he’s telling you the truth, you can’t get mad at him, right? Jimmie Lee has created a unique brand of comedy on the street in the vain of Don Rickles and Rodney Dangerfield. He combines one-liners, hilarious insults (never truly mean) and outrageous interactions with the public that are rarely politically correct - but it’s all good natured. 4 • HOLLYWOOD MONTHLY
Comedy Reality TV Star, Jimmie Lee-The Jersey Outlaw and his Hit Comedy TV Show Dangerously Funny, is one of the best rated comedy TV shows.
A master improviser, Jimmie Lee’s comedy is a highly entertaining, high energy, over the top street performance that creates pandemonium and mayhem, as he travels all over the country with his comedy reality TV show, appropriately named, “Dangerously Funny”. “Dangerously Funny”, Jimmie’s breakout YouTube Channel has filmed in Hollywood, South Beach, Las Vegas, New York City, Atlantic City and more.

“The Jersey Outlaw”, as Jimmie is known, travels the country and the world; he’s recently taken his comedy to the streets of London – with The Bandito Girls. What makes Jimmie’s show work so well is that he truly loves his audience. No one does this style of comedy anymore because no one really wants to interact with their fans. That’s what sets Jimmie Lee apart from the majority of entertainers today. “It makes me feel really good to see people having fun and entertained by my antics, and they are very engaged in what I’m doing. We’re now in Season 4 of Dangerously Funny and we’re making these reels just as funny as the previous seasons, and we got a lot in store with a lot of surprises, so don’t go anywhere”, says the old school comedian who has turned the world upside down with his comedy. He is the one and only Jersey Outlaw - Jimmie Lee.
Now, with all that said, understand this, Jimmie’s comedy is visceral. It’s real. It’s incredibly funny and as I mentioned, brutally honest. You’ll laugh about what he’s saying to you, along with everyone around you, but it’s going to sting. A typical scene involves Jimmie Lee exiting the Limo with his signature look ( leather jacket, dark sunglasses and security with the Bandito Girls ). And then the kibitzing with the crowds commences as Jimmie performs his brash, ad lib street style comedy, creating a scene wherever he goes. Jimmie’s off the cuff delivery, coupled with his dynamic persona are his signature trademarks. Nobody’s safe when Jimmie hits the streets. It is the craziest, no hold barred, most unpredictable comedy experience you will ever have. And you will LOVE IT !
Pandemonium and Mayhem on the streets with The Jersey Outlaw with high energy crazy over the top comedy.
As Jimmie Lee-The Jersey Outlaw says, “It’s all in the schtick, baby !”.

This is why I say “ Life over law” Law need to be natural and help people, if the law kill peoples , 1.Why is the doctor called The Ganja Witch and how long has she been using that name? GW I believe in Cannabis. I am involved in one of the most in against the prohibition of medical Marijuana in Thailand. I became “ Ganja Witch ” in 2018. 2.You believe in life over law. Can you explain this concept in more detail? GW I dealt with underprivileged patients who had last stage Cancer since 2010. I do what I can. I give my heart and soul to all my patients. In America and other countries they use cannabis to heal both kids and adults from autism , seizures, epilepsy, convulsion and last stage Cancer etc. However in Thailand , Marijuana is illegal but use in secret.

natural and has been assisting for us many years. 3.There is still a lot of controversy about medicinal marijuana? GW Yes , there is still plenty of controversy surrounding marijuana, Just recently in Thailand marijuana was legalized for medical use , knowledge this is important and that why I created “ Cannabis Witch Academy ”, to give people the knowledge about marijuana, usage and side effects. Everything in the world has two side good and bad. We use good for medical reasons but people still need to be aware of the bad side too. For example marijuana can impair your senses during a drive. I can say 60% of Thai peoples want to learn because marijuana has been the native and natural weed in our country for many years.
GW In Thailand we have had traditional herbal formulas that contain marijuana inside for 300 years but we could not use it because of the law. The world keeps moving , legalizing marijuana for medical use and recreation , This made me more interested sine I live in the na and I know Thailand has good quality marijuana. If Thailand lecombined the knowledge I gained from the US and applied it to Thailand , working with other doctors to cure our patients.
That is why I say “Life over Law”
7.Can you share some stories about your village and how rewarding it has been to work with the cancer patients?
GW Reward that I get from
cancer everyday for 10 years.
wonderful reward that I get. I also have cured last stage breast cancer, last stage kidney failure disease in Laos and I also made their family happy too.
for you as a woman to be as
than giving peoples back there life , My charity slogan is 5.How did you determine that by using CBD oils that it could help assist or cure certain ailments?
the world is yourself.
GW Before I gave this natural medicine to my patients , I used it to take painkiller every month for my period and Melatonin for sleep every night. Since I use CBD , I never used western medicine pills anymore because I know it has negative side effects on my kidneys and liver. Also, I did a lot of research in the US and shared case studies with my doctors friends. There were good results after CBD use , some cases we can see the results right away after CBD drops in 10 second with Seizuring and Epileptic patients. Also I have a lot of last stage Cancer patients that see a shrink with the tumor in 3 weeks. Which can be proven by blood test and tumors marker. HOLLYWOOD MONTHLY • 11

Grace in the Wings by Kari Bovee New York City, 1920 - Grace Michelle has everything she wants: A home, a family, and a future career as a costume designer for famed showman Florenz Ziegfeld, Jr.’s Ziegfeld Follies. Pretty good for a girl who once lived on the streets of New York City. But when her sister, Sophia, the star of the show, is murdered, Grace’s safe and protected life is shattered. "Not one page of this captivating tale bores, whether it's the latest scandal hitting the Follies or a glance between Grace and Chet. GRACE IN THE WINGS is the perfect blend of noir mystery, romance, action, and historical fiction, with a few comedic moments thrown in. GRACE IN THE WINGS is a page-turning 1920s mystery set against the smoky and sometimes seedy world of the famous Ziegfeld Follies." - Kent Page McGroarty for IndieReader

Entertainment With A Social Conscience WRITTEN BY ANTHONY EWART By the time you read this article on BK Fulton and Soulidifly Production's incredible new film "1 Angry Black Man," you've probably been swept up in the viral sensation of BK's recent virtual commencement address for VCU's da Vinci Center. It’s the first in the history of the venerable program. The multitalented Vivica A. Fox has already posted BK's commencement address with a YouTube link on her Twitter page and people everywhere are talking! In just over 16 minutes BK makes you understand why ignoring people who are considered "marginalized" is one of the biggest mistakes anyone can make. The simple truth is that none of us go a single day without being impacted by someone on the margins.Through BK's smooth tenor tone reading his own words with a score from Sim Stevenson - Grammy winning producer - and images curated by Queon "Q.” Martin who understudied with Martin Scorsese, we are taken on a journey through history, where BK illustrates countless amenities and modern conveniences we take for granted. He eloquently highlights several life-changing inventions such as lights and machines that allow for fresh produce that were created by women and people of color. In 16 minutes BK Fulton's commencement speech can change the world. The address is both uplifting and inspiring. One Top 25 University President said it was "the best commencement address of the 200 or so he has heard in his 40 year career!" I'm going on notice that I think BK's VCU commencement address should be included in all of our schools when dealing with subjects like acceptance and tolerance. And if you want more than BK's 16 minute VCU commencement speech, just look to his Soulidifly Productions, because everything BK Fulton talks about in that commencement address is what Soulidifly Productions believes in and stands for. The philosophy for BK and Soulidifly Productions is simply that the truth will set you free. Whether it frees you from your own bondage, or helps you realize that NO ONE can contain you or stifle your growth "if you know your history." If you know who you are and where you came from who can tell you anything different? Real truth also breeds compassion. It's no surprise that all hate is based on lies. Racism is based on lies. Bigotry is based on lies. Sexism is based on lies -- please send any chauvinists you happen to be aware of BK's commencement speech. You'll get a call back. Trust me. 22 • HOLLYWOOD MONTHLY
So now we have BK and Soulidifly's latest masterpiece: "1 Angry Black Man," written and directed by Menelek Lumumba. This is an award-winning film that has now been acquired by Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen's Entertainment Studios. Freestyle has acquired the U.S. and International rights to "1 Angry Black Man" for a worldwide digital and DVD release on June 5, 2020. "1 Angry Black Man" tells the story of Mike Anderson, a senior at a quintessential New England liberal arts college who is eight weeks away from graduation. In the film, Mike gets into a heated classroom discussion on one particular day where his literary heroes (James Baldwin, August Wilson and Zora Neale Hurston, among others) are being scrutinized. The class discussion and Mike's "pent-up emotions” from a recent interaction with local police causes his temper to boil over — anger ensues. "1 Angry Black Man" is a tense examination of boundary-pushing conversations about cultural and sexual identity and the political correctness college students are forced to come to terms with and hopefully overcome if we're ever going to be a nation of love and peace. This is the debut feature of writer/director Menelek Lumumba. Emmy-nominated Hans Charles ("13th," "Wu Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men") was the cinematographer and co-producer with partner Caroline Onikute for Align Pictures. BK’s Soulidifly Productions financed the film and BK and Monty Ross were executive producers.

The film features a stellar ensemble cast including Miguel A. Nunez, Jr. (“Life,” “Juwanna Mann”), Amanda Jane Stern ("Amish Witches: The True Story of Holmes County"), Tim Moriarty ("Manifest"), Ramon Nunez ("New Amsterdam," "Bull"), Daphne Danielle (upcoming "God The Worm”), and introduces Keith Stone as "Mike Anderson." As always with BK's style, he believes the answer is in communication. Understanding the backstory of things is essential. "1 Angry Black Man" is about understanding the psychology of what makes "this" black man angry, and by understanding this character maybe it will help you to have tolerance and compassion for everyone. We all have our stories and we all want to be loved and respected. That's really all there is to it. As a society we've made things very complicated but BK Fulton and Soulidifly Productions are helping us set things straight. And that VCU Commencement speech by BK I've been raving about, it's also drawn praise from noted historians like Henry Louis “Skip” Gates, Jr., leaders at Stanford University and the family of Lewis H. Latimer. VPM (PBS) will air an edited version of the speech later this month. There is also SoulVision.TV which launched on Valentine’s Day of 2020. You know what to expect from this: Positive, uplifting, extraordinary programming to help you on your journey of self-growth, exploration and your pursuit of excellence. You can download the SoulVision.TV app on any mobile device. It’s free! Yes, the man is giving it away. If that’s not enough from his Soulidifly Productions, BK is also a poet, a singer and a composer. Another fantastic film from 24 • HOLLYWOOD MONTHLY
Soulidifly Productions, "LOVE DOT COM: The Social Experiment” (trending on NETFLIX) is also having great success with its recently released Soundtrack, of which BK wrote two songs and sings on the last track. The soundtrack is available on all digital platforms worldwide. Whether you refer to BK Fulton as a "Renaissance Man" or a "Media Polymath," understand one thing: all of BK's brilliance is dedicated to elevating our social awareness and us having compassion for each other. So, he appreciates the titles, but "our peace and happiness" is what he loves most. BK’s Soulidifly Productions is what we call “WOKE!"

MUST THINK AHEAD OF THE
COVID-19 Coronavirus is changing the landscape of the World. It’s impacting everyone. This time is not ideal for anyone. Things are rapidly shifting, and there is a lot of uncertainty around what the future holds for our health, our communities, and many other aspects of daily life. No one can leave their house in some places and anxiety levels of everyone due to the pandemic is very high. Now you may be thinking, “well obviously”, but what many fail to notice is that this pandemic quarantine situation that is going currently will have a major influence on kids, especially teenagers. Being a teenager is difficult no matter what, and the Coronavirus disease is making it even harder. Let’s look into the mind of the modern teenager, from my perspective. First things first, the main thing controlling our minds is hormones. I wish I could say that this was not true, but it is. This makes us do things randomly. Sometimes we also end up breaking down and crying or punching a wall. This reaction is because of our heightened emotions that are also caused by hormones. Needless to say, all teenagers are not like this. Some teens have fewer or more emotions.
26 • HOLLYWOOD MONTHLY
Now the only thing that make us happy are the ones we love and our passion. We look forward to hanging out with friends during school and other activities. Bonding with peers is one of the essential developmental tasks of adolescents. Then we like coming home and seeing our family. This process keeps it balanced for us. Imagine having to physically be 6 feet away from your friends when you get the 5% chance to see them because of social distancing and the seriousness of the situation. It’s tiring. So what happens you may ask. Let me tell you. I believe this reaction is similar to a bag of popcorn. In the beginning, when you put it in the microwave, it does not move, but after some time, the kernel starts popping until the bag is full. It’s the same process with teenagers in quarantine. When teenagers first start quarantining themselves, they get adjusted to the new setting. After some time, the anxiousness and stress that we developed due to lack of social life causes our emotions to go crazy and start popping off. The Coronavirus crisis hits teenagers very hard. Since we are shut inside our homes, running low on snacks and people to talk to, the motivation levels are sinking. This is taking a toll on our health, behavior, and academic performance. Many teenagers are losing interest to do anything, which is understandable, but it is also a waste of opportunity. When we had school and times to hang out with friends, we had no time to focus on ourselves. Now is the perfect window to try a new hobby, focus on self-care or fix our health, mentally and physically. We have this time to learn how to love ourselves and others with no distraction. Right now, we can fully experience the free time that comes with quarantine.
This concept of Coronavirus has left us all startled and confused. Many of us are locked inside our homes wondering when it will all be over. It is critical to see the good that is occurring to keep ourselves from drowning in the bad. The virus providing an opportunity for doing many things better. Because many people are shut away, the Earth is improving. To name a few, air pollution is slowing down, water pollution is clearing up, and nature is blooming. We also have time to connect with ourselves. Do not forget, we are the most creative and innovative age group. Focusing on ourselves and finding ways to use the new-found time in a productive way is going to have positive impact on our future. We can’t control COVID, but we can control what we can focus on, how we can spend our time and energy, and the choices we make. Consider this crisis moment as an opportunity presented to us. Let’s think ahead of the times and make the best of this situation.

RUBIN WRIGHT’S “LA WATER”
The Greatest (PROVEN) Vodka you will ever Taste BY ANTHONY EWART In Martin Scorsese's 1995 film "Casino" Robert De Niro plays a "gambling expert handicapper" hired by the mob to take care of their Vegas casino -- and save them money. There's a high body count in this movie but De Niro's character survives it all as people drop dead (with mob assistance) around him. De Niro's character was kept alive because he had an asset, something the mob "needed." He wasn't expendable. You can survive in Hell unscathed if you have something the Devil wants. During America's dangerous period of prohibition of alcohol, when bootleggers traversed mean backwood streets and took forest shortcuts to deliver the coveted "moonshine" our country craved, Rubin Wright's Great, Great Uncle Oscar was a "moonshine connoisseur." He was able to survive -and thrive -- in these volatile times because Uncle Oscar had something "everybody" wanted: the best moonshine. Now, everyone wants Rubin Wright's "LA WATER VODKA" building off the history of his Great, Great Uncle Oscar's moonshine legacy, Rubin was inspired and took it upon himself to create his own unique recipe and make this Ultra Premium Vodka. At the beginning of Rubin's humbling journey from Beloit, WI to Los Angeles making LA WATER VODKA the hidden 30 • HOLLYWOOD MONTHLY
gem that it is was his main priority. He is greatly supported by his Grandmother, parents, wife and not forgetting his great friends Matthew Ankrum, DeShawn Cobb and Steven Williams. Rubin has developed LA WATER VODKA under two simple principles: (1) carry on Uncle Oscar's legacy and make it into an unrivaled Ultra Premium Vodka; and (2) share it with the world's truest of vodka connoisseurs. Rubin has dutifully carried out these two principles and has built LA WATER VODKA into the finest Ultra Premium vodka "experience." All it takes is one taste of LA WATER VODKA to win you over. On Rubin Wright's word, just one taste… After 5 years of tasting and promoting LA WATER VODKA at only the top events in Los Angeles the feedback from their fanbase tells them that this is a once in a lifetime spirit ready for the masses to consume. I've never met anyone as driven as Rubin Wright and I've never met anyone as proud of their family heritage as Rubin is -- and with good reason. LA WATER VODKA is truly an experience. The story of Uncle Oscar's moonshine is incredible, and Rubin Wright's LA WATER VODKA will make you a believer.

According to Ayurveda drinking copper enriched water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach helps balance all three doshas (Kapha, Vata and Pitta). "Professor KEEVIL'S work is a modern confirmation of an ancient remedy. Researchers reported last month that the novel coronavirus causing the COVID-19 pandemic survives for days on glass and stainless steel but dies within hours after landing on copper. In 2015, Keevil turned his attention to corona virus 229E, a relative of the COVID-19 virus that causes the common cold and pneumonia. Once again, copper zapped the virus within minutes while it remained infectious for five days on surfaces such as stainless steel or glass.

Family members only with whom you are emotionally attached , remember knowing people all your life doesn't means understanding them. Avoid blames and grudges make healthy boundaries in any relationship, good for both sides. Caring for your loved ones doesn't mean taking charge of their problems, giving unsolicited advice. With out this emotional intimacy, family contact becomes a burden, because no one is comfortable spending that much time with a stranger. Emotional honesty is equally needed from both sides. nurture your relationship, friendship by being kind, listen them, be open, build intimacy, show that you can be trusted.
and indulge yourself in an alternate hobby. *Spend some time with Pets, Kids, their innocence and undemanding attitude boost your happiness and reduce your stress. Sometimes be silly. Laughter and a cheerful outlook Laughter has long been held as the "Best Medicine" and in fact, science has now found that every cell in the body has a receptor for the substances produced when we are happy. Every cell is therefore influenced by how we feel. Our first line of defence against any disease is therefore Happiness. After all it isn't always easy to stay positive, especially as life can throw all sorts of things at you.
*Find your hobby/passion in life the one that touches your inner child to make it happy and peaceful.
Look presently how we are facing global pendemic ,lots of stress, when everyone is trying to protect themselves from the pandemic virus with gloves and facemask, the next most effective measure we can take is to avoid stress and try to adopt ancient secrets for health care, home remedies to enhance our immunity.
Do it with full energy and enthusiasm. And if this is not possible in present scenario use a planner and pen down how you can get it
