(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoHere comes the newly-improved JH biography (not that you really care but it's) 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 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!

Hey PSoupers & friends,

The VISCERAL contest is in full GEAR!

So many great writers here on this forum.


  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?


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? 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.
