Today marks the second Anniversary of the publication and launch of John Holmes: A Life Measured in Inches hosted by Book Soup in Hollywood, California. It is also the 66th birthday of our book's legendary and infamous subject - John Curtis Holmes. To commemorate this occasion, Jennifer and I look forward to the fall release of our bio in an audio version that will initially be available as an mp3/download. (We recorded the book over a week at my home in Southern Ontario, in July.) This will be the book's third format, in addition to paperback and kindle available at http://www.amazon.com/John-Holmes-Life-Measured-Inches/dp/1593933029
We would also like to remind readers that for those interested in an autographed softcover of the biography signed by both authors, we have three available copies. For more information, you may contact us through our webmaster at: email@example.com or our personal e-mail address at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Leo birthday Trivia:
Under the Zodiac, John Holmes was born a Leo and often referred to himself as a "Triple Leo". Here are some rather interesting and entertaining characteristics that constitute people who are born under the Leo sign. Many of these same characteristics would describe my late father-in-law, who was born on August 9th. :)
The Leo type is the most dominant, spontaneously creative and extrovert of all the zodiacal characters. In grandeur of manner, splendor of bearing and magnanimity of personality, they are the monarch's among humans as the lion is king of beasts. They are ambitious, courageous, dominant, strong willed, positive, independent and self-confident.
In his or her relations with others the Leo type is open, sincere, genuine and trusting. They are outgoing, spontaneously warm hearted and plain spoken, though never lacking in kindliness.
Leonians think and act bigger than others would normally dare; the ambitiousness of their schemes and idealism sometimes daunt their followers. If Leonians meet with setbacks they thrive on the adversity.
Their faults can be as large in scale as their virtues, and an excessively negative Leonian can be one of the most unpleasant human beings imaginable, displaying extreme arrogance, autocratic pride, haughtiness, and excessive hastiness of temper.
Leo's have a strong sex drive and are so attracted to the opposite sex that they find it hard to be constant; they can be so intensely sexual as to become dissolute. They may have numerous love affairs for their love of pleasure and beauty is liable to drive them from one attractive partner to another. They are very much inclined to deceive. Their marriages may fail for the same reason, yet they are sincere and generous to their lovers while love lasts...
Add to them a passion for luxury, a lust for power and emotional indulgence. If artistic, Leos can become stars of stage or screen.
- RIP John
