Hurley has a blog. Jorge Garcia, who plays Hurley on Lost, has a personal blog that's just like yours. He doesn't talk about his day job, and instead posts regular updates on what he did for thanksgiving, adventures in gardening, his dog Nunu, and everyday rat problems. He also sings. Surprisingly honest, funny, and approachable.
Frank Hurley. You may be familiar with his work for Shackleton on the Endurance. Magnificent stuff, but only a fraction of what he was capable of. After the ice, he went to Europe where he did some of the most haunting photographs of WWI. Click the pictures to continue the series- they defy selection. (He did reluctantly create some fakes for the propaganda effort, but most of his stuff is straight and the better for it.) After the war he continued to travel, and for those with some time on their hands, the Australian government has been good enough to put a few thousand items of his work on line here)
