About John Heck
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoHere comes the newly-improved JH biography (not that you really care but it's)...at a bargain-basement price!

I'm a Catholic raised - down-to-earth Brooklyn boy who thanks his Mom & Dad for who & where he is today. My Dad - so proud of Him! A decorated Marine who fought in the Korean War...I have his Marine Corp. jacket that honors his integrity and love for both his family and his country. I love and miss my Dad! My Mom - another kick-ass, wonderful person who gave me way too many hugs and kisses as a child...nah, she gave me everything a son could ever want...she still does. Although, she's charging me residuals for her services now...only kidding.

Graduated both Catholic Grammar School: Mary Queen of Heaven (Franciscan Nuns) Egads! Catholic High School; Xaverian (YO! Top Twenty Honor Student) Yeah...if I didn't graduate in the TOP 20 - I would have been more afraid of my Mom's Italiano disapproval (as opposed to my Dad yelling): "I don't give a crap what score you got on yer test today...just get outta the way of the TV set when I'm watching the GIANTS game, OK!" Needless to say - I loved my Dad! Moving on...to more boredom...

Graduated the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in 1974. Studied with choreographer/director, Bob Fosse, 2 years (ballet and modern jazz) before he passed away in 1987. Studied (tap & modern jazz) with Michael Bennett (1984-1986). Mr. Bennett died in July of 1987. Studied, for 3 years, with acclaimed actress, Uta Hagen (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf) & Lee Strasberg at HB Studios.. Graduate of NY University for credits (in the fields of): Editing and Cinematography.

Presently, writing a "draft" for an upcoming Off-Broadway musical and (yes, I am writing both LYRICS & music). Please, Mr. Producer - GET representation! An anthology (of my short stories & poems) will soon be peddled on the Barnes & Nobles market circuit. Will be appearing in the feature film : SHAME (to be realeased in February 2012) and...THANKS, MOM & DAD...the biggest influences in my life...I'm so glad you kicked me in my ass when I needed it the most! I love you both so much! I know I've grown from a pseudo-rebellious kid to an outspoken, vocal adult...and you still support me? Egads...the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.

I love you!

VISCERAL!
Blog Posted:8/26/2012 4:53:00 PM

 



Hey PSoupers & friends,

The VISCERAL contest is in full GEAR!

So many great writers here on this forum.


vis·cer·al/'vis(?)r?l/

Adjective:
  1. Of or relating to the viscera.
  2. Relating to deep inward feelings rather than to the intellect: "the voters' visceral fear of change".

A delusional MO-RON, on this site, tried to bang me down on this contest but - eat crow, BIOTCH! BTW - I blocked your idiocies. Condolences.

And CH - (aka, OCD Grandpa) I can shove a quilled calligraphy pen up my stinky, hairy sphincter (after a tequila and mojito hangover) and still write more eloquently and intelligently than you! Got that? Good.                        Moron.

On a lighter note, read the rules of the contest. And viscerally excite me!

Such the cad, 'tis I. Does anyone wanna challenge the Brooklyn boy?

WRITE!

Peace always, J

    I have more integrity than both you and your wife combined. Yeah...but can she write a PERFECT HAIKU? I THINK NOT! And neither can you! Best wishes, Grandpa Henderson, and, may I remind you - you have never commented on any one of my poems in the past. I have been off the Soup for sometime now. I may post a contest every once and awhile and sometimes I host a contest. Who are you? I've been on PSoup since 2005. Are you confusing me with someone else or are you having an Alzheimer seizure? WHO IS CHARLES HENDERSON? I think the mental disabilities lie in your eldered brain, not mine.

    And Cyndi - I couldn't give a shit if you entered my contest or not. BOO-HOO, I'm gonna friggin' cry. Like you've ever read or commented on any of my writings. REALLY? And who is referring to "peace?" Cyndi, you're so low-self esteemed pretentious- it makes me laugh! Odd comments? Get a good Orthodox Jewish therapist, pumpkin noodle. You need one! LOL!

    Hey Carolyn - I don't know you (and not that I want to). No avatar picture? Interesting...you were probably heinous as a child. A hair lip. Melanoma? Poor thing! A battery acid flushing? An apology? Do you know me? An apology should be made to your father...obviously he didn't wear a condom during that whimsical night when...oh well - OOOOPPS! Hey! Here you are! OH, yep (yawn) here you are. Enter my VISCERAL contest! If you dare! SMILES, J

    John....John! There you go again ...The other day you said that you are a gentleman... I think we have differences regarding the meaning or significance of this word. Come on... you're a nice guy, delete this blog. Ruben.

    This blog will self destruct before morning. Exactly what aspect of peace are you referring to? I think you didn't need to put up a definition. Your odd comments seems to sum up your contest. I will write a "visceral" poem, might even post it. But it won't find its way to your contest. PS- good luck on... whatever.

    Hmmm...is right. You did take your bi-polar, schizo-multi-personality disorder medications today? Didn't you, sweetheart? C'mon, be honest with me, Sybil.
