    It's James Franco's time to shine. It's his weekend. This Sunday, February 27th, he will be hosting the 83rd Academy Awards with Anne Hathaway. It should be a great show. And, he is up for Best Actor for his outstanding performance as Aron Ralston in 127 Hours. What an accomplished man--and very busy as well.

    I bet he is in LA, right now, putting the final touches on his Oscar performance with Anne. While he's been prepping for that, I have been preparing as well. Because he'll be giving it his all, I thought I should too. I present to you my Franco Art. I have already posted Franco the Renaissance Man and Franco the Wizard of Oz. Here are the rest of my Digital Creations. You may think that I am obsessed with James Franco. To that I reply, you are correct! My Franco Fever may or may not pass. Only time will tell.

    I will continue to update this post as I add new images.

    Some of us are so thick with talent, it's almost impossible to spread ourselves too thin. We are gifted with an endless supply of unbridled ability and a drive that keeps us moving fast forward. In the entertainment world, Justin Timberlake and Beyonce Knowles come to mind. Both are triple—maybe quadrupole—threats. They sing, dance, act, and are generally nice, polite, and likable people. Unfortunately, most of us aren't the caretakers of such gifts—myself included. I am not blessed with any natural abilities. I am quite average at writing, athletics, and the arts. I can state confidently that I have only excelled in two arenas e.g. as a college student—top of my class, and as an anorectic—thinnest person not yet in the graveyard. Sadly for me, these two statuses were transitory. Unless one is very wealthy, the campus will need to be abandoned for the real world of employment. And there is no future for an anorexic person. Eventually she will enter a crossroads whereby a choice must be made to to ditch the disorder or shrivel up and die. Heroin addiction plays by those same rules.

    What I wouldn't do to have a respectable talent or two coupled with an insatiable ambition to succeed. Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Leonardo daVinci were all ripe with talent in many areas. But who comes to mind when we consider the present day? One person clearly fits the bill. His name is James Franco.

    That's right, James Franco is a modern day Renaissance Man.

    See how I did it​


    Franco is a film actor, director, screenplay writer, novelist, painter, soap opera star, SNL host, Oscar host, PhD candidate at Yale, Gucci model, performance artist, and bar owner. He can do drama e.g. 127 Hours and comedy e.g. Pineapple Express. He can play it straight e.g. James Dean or play gay e.g. Milk. His credits roll on. His talent seems endless.

    So, reflecting on his many accomplishments, I wondered what he should do next. Pilots license sprung to mind. It seems to be something that quite a few Hollywood types have added to their brag boxes e.g. John Travolta, Tom Cruise, Harrison Ford, to name a few. I suppose it isn't such a novel thing to do. But still... I could see him up for the challenge. So, I almost fell off the couch in mad-laughter when I read an article last night stating that Franco had indeed got his pilots license to prepare for his 2006 performance in Flyboys.

    Anyhow, I thought it would be amusing to make a list of 43 things James Franco should do before he dies.

    Here is My List:

    1. Play Morrissey in a feature film about The Smiths. Franco looks a lot like Moz as his film characters James Dean and Allen Ginsberg—sporting black rimmed glasses, chiseled cheekbones, and a fabulous saluting quiff.
