Yesterday while researching Hollywood’s dark little secret that it harbors powerful pedophiles and predators, I came across an interview that Howard Stern did with Rich Cronin, the singer from 90’s boy band LFO and holy shit, what an interview! First and foremost, Rest In Peace. Rich died from his battle with Leukemia in 2010. Secondly, I’ve been a Howard Stern listener for almost 20 years and I have to say that this interview is one of the greatest interviews I’ve heard on the show and a lot of that credit goes to Rich, who is an amazing story teller. The majority of the interview focuses on Lou Pearlman, the guy who created The Backstreet Boys, Nsync, LFO and many of the other boy bands of the 90’s and whaddaya know, the guy is a creepy predator who created these boy bands to take advantages of young boys, and it gets you wondering about who are the Lou Pearlman’s of Hollywood? As you start to dig into these matters, you’ll come to the realization that on the surface Hollywood is glitz and glam, but deep in its crevices, below the casting couch, there exist a dark and dirty place, where kids are abused by powerful producers and where parents turn a blind eyed in the name of maintaining their child’s career. Is it any coincidence that so many child stars become fucked up adults??? Just something to think about. Enjoy the interview, its hilariously insightful and disgusting at the same time.

Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.
