Do you know why I rarely ever update my journal entries anymore? It's because most of you don't give a damn to reply to them after all the efforts it takes to post said updates. Don't get me wrong, I understand we all have better things in life to do but it would be nice to see some activity now and then. =o)
I will however post this one update that as an avid Knight Rider fan, I feel deserves to be displayed wherever my attentions dwell because it's not just about me, it's about making a difference for a cause greater than myself. Living proof Knights of the West Coast aren't afraid to lead by example and "Give Back" to sick children who need heroes to believe in.
Knights of the West Coast, the only recognized/televised Knight Rider replica car club in history raised and donated a historic $4,000.00
for Children's Hospital Los Angeles
through raising money specifically for charity during the Knight Rider Reunion event that took place last October. While other Knight Rider fan events claim to care about making a positive difference, we are the only club that shows living proof that we deliver, something I am very proud of.
You know the really sad thing about this though? Knight Rider Online the so called #1 fan site on the internet refuses to even acknowledge this gesture ever took place and went to great lengths to avoid promoting and or supporting our efforts with Knight Rider Reunion
either before, during, or after Knight Rider Reunion which is the only current officially licensed fan event ever produced. I think this hobby needs less ego driven nonsense and more unity but some people out there like KRO think competition is more important. Sad.
I think as someone who is a tremendous supporter of one man's dream, you Knight Rider fans who like to "+fav" my work should know about these self centered attitudes that exist in this hobby from the likes of Knight Rider Online, Knight Rider UK, and The Foundation.net.
You want to go to a good Knight Rider fan forum board where you're free to express your mind, discover how to build replica KITT cars, and know about the best upcoming events? Google search Knight Rider Revolution
and join up. It's the only KR forum board, I personally recommend and approve out there. I'm not just a fan of it, I'm a member.
I have always created works of art to help and inspire others, not just to boost an ego or take people's money by offering inferior products or broken promises. I do this stuff for the passion of it, all you can do is lose money year after year but I do it so fans like you can have artwork to collect or display on your walls. For seven years I have dedicated my life to preserving one man's dream and bringing this epic series closer to the fans who admire it through my art, through my heart, and the many friendships I have made with the cast/crew of the series. Now having reached what I feel is the highest peak a fan of this cult classic can possibly reach, I step away from the world of talking cars and purple deserts to pursue my own story and explore my world of Aiemara(tm)"Knight Rider represents all that was good in the world, exciting, and real. I'm proud to have been a part of its legendary history and prove that one fan can make a difference."
