LRFW and non-profit organization partner to make 'big' influence

LRFW and non-profit organization partner to make 'big' influence

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW) is proud to announce that a new non-profit partner for LRFW 2011 is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arkansas (BBBSCA). Brandon D. Campbell, founder and executive director of LRFW, selected BBBSCA because of their significant contributions to improving the lives of children in our community.

Campbell knows the difference the organization makes in the lives of children because he too has been directly influenced by the organization.  From age eight to eleven years old, Campbell was a "Little."
 
"The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arkansas provided me with so many great eye-opening first time experiences, so I think it's only fitting that I help give other children their first major fashion experience," Campbell explains.

Playing pirate just isn't fun anymore

Playing pirate just isn't fun anymore

The first question that comes to mind is, "Why in the world would they make another Pirates movie?" The first one was fun, the second one too long, and the third one too confusing for a film that was based on a theme park ride. The franchise seemed to wrap itself up nicely, so why would they make another one?

The answer is money. The studio knows that people will go see it. I read that Johnny Depp was paid $55 million to resume the role of Captain Jack Sparrow, which brings me to two conclusions: either he had no interest in playing the role again and that was that magical number of zeros it took, or he is such a smart man that he knows how much money a fourth "Pirates of the Caribbean" film would make and that the studio knew it would sink without him manning the wheel.
