Price: $14.96

4.0 out of 5 starsContract Specialist Dilemma?, August 27, 2015
This review is from: Aloha (DVD)
The movie Aloha contains movie trailers for Ricki and The Flash, Infinitely Polar Bear, Testament of Youth, and Insidious Chapter Three. Bradley Cooper stars as an ambitious military contractor named
Brian Gilcrest. Brian Gilcrest ends up unexpectedly falling for Captain Allison NG (Emma Stone) and unintentionally running into old flame Tracy Woodside (Rachel McAdams). The movie gives clues that things are about to get complicated when Tracy Woodside invites Brian Gilcrest for dinner with her husband John Woody Woodside (John Krasinski) and both of their children present (a big deal because this was shortly after her husband made it safe back from one of his missions). I understand that McAdams was only doing her job, but I was shocked at the directness of the plot. There are other actors that feature in the movie as well such as Bill Murray, Alec Baldwin, Danny McBride etc.

Rogue Elephants: One PR Girl’s Fight Through the Human Jungle
by Miss Jane K Hunt
Edition: Paperback
Price: $15.65

5.0 out of 5 stars Explanatory Career Autobiography, August 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
Rogue Elephants; One PR Girl’s Fight Through the Human Jungle by Jane K Hunt is a frank guide on the journey a Public Relations Specialist took on her way to accomplishing a significant deal in her professional life. I like that Hunt includes various angles around her job because the career of a Public Relations professional has several related names within itself as well as the capacity to work in many parts of the U.S. (i.e. brand execs such as those seen accompanying famous Hollywood celebrities, government relations, media relations, public affairs, communications specialist, communications director, Research Associates,consultant, communications manager etc.). Some of the following information included in her guide;
Page 41; Hunt shares her adventures in securing a place to live.
Page 113; Hunt’s professional fulfillment with being part of a Catering Student of the Year Contest.
Page 213; She recalls her experience around helping to handle the Royal Armouries Account.
Chapter 13-starts on page 246: The startup, initiation, and aftermath process is shared on what Jane K Hunt went through in order to open her own PR firm, including the moment of what was a “red tag on the bull’ moment on what made her even more determined to go through with keeping her own PR business going.

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
The $100 Startup; Reinvent The Way You Make A Living, Do What You Love, and Create A New Future by Chris Guillebeau is a book for those either looking for information on moneymaking ideas as a side hustle or as a main business. The following excerpts from the book; Page 47 covers details on the Grammar Girl podcast, pages 130 and 131 discuss the idea around a launch campaign, pages 160 and 161 feature the topic of self-promotion (or as the author calls is gentle self-promotion), pages 190 and 191 mention about creating a “hall of fame” and “referalls”, and page 257 touches on a morning group.

This review is from: Gatecrasher Classics (Audio CD)
Gatecrasher Classics is a three cd by various artists containing 17 songs on cd one, 17 songs on cd two, and 16 songs on cd three. It was interesting to see a song titled Stella on this collection and for some reason the songs Everyday, Happiness, and Bird of Prey musically pierced my soul right away. However, there is also multitude of other classic trance and dance songs on this Gatecrasher Classics set dealing with songs such as suburban Train, Push, Lustral, Solar Stone, Barber’s Adagio for Strings, Bullet In The Gun, For An Angel, Communication, Love Stimulation, Greece 2000, Silence, Rapture, and so much more.

Some Kind Of Beautiful
Some Kind Of Beautiful
DVD
Price: $6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Saw This Movie Mentioned In A Magazine (I think it was Ok mag) At My Job,August 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
Some Kind of Beautiful Stars Pierce Brosnan as a college professor named Richard Haig who tries to initially seduce Olivia (Salma Hayek) while still dating her grad student sister Kate (Jessica Alba). Admittedly, Richard did not know at first that Olivia and Kate were related when he first laid eyes on Olivia inside a fancy looking Dublin hotel (or was it a bar/restaurant as well). Anyhow, this is the least of his worries as Olivia meets up with both Kate and Richard while discussing her love life with author Alan Sloane (Robert Mailhouse). Richard’s father Gordon (Malcolm McDowell) foreshadows the scandal that is about to happen by the way that Richard and Gordon say goodbye to each other. Olivia politely avoids telling Kate about Richard hitting on her at their first actual meeting. However, this is the least of Richard’s worries as he finds out that Kate is pregnant and is about to have his baby. Kate got a job with a venture firm in Los Angeles and successfully persuades Richard to follow her to California (which seems easy enough because Richard considers Kate beautiful, ambitious, and bright). Things start out idyllic when Kate gives birth to their baby Jake (Duncan Joiner). However, Richard’s life gets turned upside down when Kate decides to leave him for another man named Brian (Ben MacKenzie). Around this time, Olivia catches her writer amour with her gynecologist (she finds out later that her writer man only went with her to the gynecologist sessions to see the gynecologist). Olivia creatively channels some of that heartache towards becoming a writer herself.

The Best of Real Life Send Me An Angel by Real Life captures the innermost stirring music musings of the classic and Extended remix version of Send Me An Angel, Always, and No Shame. This Real Life collection is good for those who are open to listening to 80’s music.

Something Better [feat. Lady Antebellum]
Something Better [feat. Lady Antebellum]
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Introduced Via A Norfolk Virginia Radio Station, August 27, 2015
Something Better by Audien feat. Lady Antebellum is an electronic song that communicates the message of expecting and believing in one’s ability to have better things in life (I’m guessing in relation to relationships or what to expect spiritually in life).I admit that this was one of the first electronic country music mashup songs that I’ve known in a while to feature both a popular country music act and electronica, until my husband politely corrected me and explained of the bluegrass melodies of Avicii’s Hey Brother feat. Dan Tyminski (my husband has a country soul due to his upbringing but he also enjoys classic/modern rock and dance/electronic/trance music as well). Anyhow, Something Better by Audien feat. Lady Antebellum is perfect for eclectic music lovers who enjoy electronic/dance music mashups with other genes such as this song.

Fight Song
Fight Song
Offered by SONY Music Entertainment Downloads LLC.
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Resilience Anthem, August 27, 2015
This review is from: Fight Song (MP3 Music)
Fight Song by Rachel Platten appears to be a positive anthem about going after and believing in your goals and/or dreams regardless of what people say around you. I do like how the lyrics make it clear that the narrator explains how she has a lot of fight left in her to go after what she wants regardless of the number of people who believe in her and how her power is now turned on.

Baby, I Love Your Way
Baby, I Love Your Way
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Unconditional Love Anthem?, August 27, 2015
Baby I Love Your Way by Peter Frampton is an uplifting classic rock love song that appears to me to be about a tune about being with someone where the relationship only gets better with time. The lyrics of I Wanna Be With You Night and Day symbolize the closeness of such a union. However, I had to say my thoughts on the Peter Frampton version because this classic rock version is sung in a romantic way where the singer lets his love know in an implied way that there bond is so strong that the could be around each other easily all day. I admit that I like this song so much that it is tricky for me to say which version I like the most (in addition to the Peter Frampton version there is also a version by Big Mountain).

Powerful (feat. Ellie Goulding & Tarrus Riley)
Powerful (feat. Ellie Goulding & Tarrus Riley)
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Original Electronic Romantic Beat?, August 27, 2015
Powerful by Major Lazer Feat. Ellie Goulding & Tarrus Riley is a compelling song about being around someone who has a powerful effect on your whole state of being (I’m guessing in an indisputably beneficial way). Powerful combines elements of electronic music and dancehall. I admit to initially finding out about this song through the Pride radio station on iheartradio.

90 Minutes in Heaven: A True Story of Death and Life
90 Minutes in Heaven: A True Story of Death and Life
by Cecil B. Murphey
Edition: Paperback
Price: $11.27
1852 used & new from $0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars I Understand That I’m Not The Target Audience For This Book However, August 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
One of the reasons that the book 90 Minutes In Heaven by Don Piper with Cecil Murphy appealed to me is stemmed from part of my intent to increase my understanding of both traditional religion and new age ideas on heaven towards my intent of writing under a username (that definitely is not going to involve the word star). Some of the strong and compelling points of this book;
Piper goes into what he saw and felt during his time in heaven for chapter two.
Pages 78-79 capture his truth of admitting that there was a time where he wanted to go back to heaven and found little comfort in various psychiatrists trying to talk to him on how he was doing.
Pages 130-131 and 134-135-Piper’s discussion with a man who was one of the many who helped pray him back to life and their sense of spiritual urgency. Piper also recalls that whoever might have been holding his hand during the car crash was a benevolent spirit from heaven (i.e. maybe an angel).
Pages 148-152; Other members of Don Piper’s family recall what went through their minds and hearts during and in the aftermath of the events surrounding his recovery (i.e. Piper’s children Nicole, Joe, and Chris as well as his wife Eva).
Pages 166-167; Piper shares how he met his wife Eva at Louisiana State University and the dramatic story of how a person at of his events unexpectedly died soon after at just 20 years of age (to the shock of multiple students who knew him).
The only catch is that there are only some pages out of the 207 page book that covers his time in heaven, however it was still a gripping read. There is more that is tempting to say about this book, but my conscience is guiding me to put aside my own personal spiritual biases out of consideration for the author, other reasons, and a major confession on one major reason why; I admit that I controversially believe in the idea of various realms within heaven and hell even with my interest in the new age and occult arenas, but I believe that there are spirits that are allowed to ascend from the lower darker realms (i.e. the realms in what is called hell) after a period of time depending on the person’s soul and intent to spiritually grow (kind of how a reformed criminal is allowed out of prison after showing the potential to change, but my heart and conscience is guiding me to avoid publicly sharing more within this review). However, I’m still grateful to have come across this book because it helped remind me that I’m more than how I feel on my human ego side when it comes to sometimes feeling prejudged based on my perceived work in progress intelligence/progressing wisdom and a reminder to instead be more grateful/self-confident for what I already have (in addition, the book served as a healing reminder for me to more carefully have my spiritual life be more of a prominent guide as I pursue certain career goals).

5.0 out of 5 stars Alternative Rock Song About a Dream Lover?, August 20, 2015
This review is from: Dreams [Explicit] (MP3 Music)
Dreams by Beck captures the element of meeting and being around someone who makes you feel high on life. The singer admits to strongly feeling passion for a person who makes them feel high and is basically a person of their dreams.

Back Together [feat. Nicki Minaj]
Back Together [feat. Nicki Minaj]
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical Reconciliation Plea?, August 20, 2015
Back Together (feat. Nicki Minaj) by Robin Thicke is a tune where the narrator singing the song is admitting to the moments in life where they were with someone and how it shaped them as a person in life. It is as the title says a polite ode highlighting the implied benefits of getting back with someone who could be good for you.

High By The Beach [Explicit]
High By The Beach [Explicit]

5.0 out of 5 stars Risky Exploits By The Beach?, August 20, 2015
High by The Beach by Lana Del Rey does give off a summery vibe of someone wanting to start a new chapter in their life in an extreme way. A person must be secure in their own love life before hearing the song due to how Lana Del Rey mentions her love life in High On The Beach.

Breathe

5.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing New Age Chillout Song, August 20, 2015
This review is from: Breathe (MP3 Music)
Breathe by Blue Stone is a tune that combines new age and chillout melodies that take you to a peaceful and mystical world (musically). The music to Breathe by Blue Stone is very serene and soft which adds to a song that is also good for relaxing and/or meditating.

Life's Been Good
Life’s Been Good
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars The Positives of Life, August 20, 2015
This review is from: Life’s Been Good (MP3 Music)
Life’s Been Good by Joe Walsh is a classic rock song that reflects on the singer’s life and how he powerfully expresses in a truthful tone on how he has had it good in life. He also sings about some of the crazy moments in the song while underscoring how those circumstances have also supported how life has been good to him.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Different Side of Pitbull, August 20, 2015
This review is from: Dale (Audio CD)
I had to give Dale by PitBull a listen because I was thinking about learning Spanish (a female coworker inspired me) and felt it helpful if I go with a musician who I’m familiar with and whose music I enjoy. Due to most of the lyrics being in Spanish it is obviously most likely to be enjoyed by people who enjoy dance/pop music who either already are familiar with Spanish and/or those who are not familiar with the Spanish language but were curious to get a music set containing Spanish lyrics in order to increase an understanding of the language in a fun way (I like the El Party song the most on this cd, though there are other good songs on Dale by Pitbull).

MONEY Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom
MONEY Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom
by Tony Robbins
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $15.40
124 used & new from $5.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Money Ideas, August 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
Money Master The Game; 7 Steps To Financial Freedom by Tony Robbins caught my attention due to my own interest in simultaneously increasing my savings and income. There is some informative and animating information in here such as how people making at least $750,000 or more plan to never retire on pages 34-35(due to doing work that is either a match for their passions and/or income aspirations), page 183 getting past one’s own beliefs/fears/getting to a better state etc,the case study of one of Robbin’s friends who has had a successful career as a screenwriter (page 194) and his interviews with different money masters as well as more details. I admit that this book also caught my attention because I’m in a situation where I’ve already accepted (regardless of other’s judgements) that my student loans may possibly only be repaid by around the year 2035. However, increasing my personal savings and personal income is a top priority for me because the standard advice for my husband and I to live with family members would not benefit us because they live in states where it is extremely even more competitive and more complicated just to get a minimum wage job (compared to where my husband and I live). Yes, it is common knowledge that there are many ambitious and hardworking adults that save more money to live with their families. However, it is also common knowledge that there are some adult people who have also moved in with family members but were not able to get back to living on their own due for whatever various reasons having navigating the cost of living and availability of jobs (and I notice that they are rarely given a public voice in the media compared to the other group). Additionally, the one thing that I intuitively do know is that it is my destiny to legally do whatever I can to ensure we (my husband and I) are able to continue to independently live on our own regardless of how I’m judged.

Anthem (Original Vox Mix)
Anthem (Original Vox Mix)
Price: $0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Amorous Dance Trance Tune, August 20, 2015
Anthem by Filo and Peri (Original Vox Mix)is a meaningful love song about the singer remembering a person who impacted his heart in a powerful way by admitting that the song is about a girl in his life who got away. The upbeat dance music and the ardent lyrics of the song culminate in a tune that symbolize a rapturous aspect of being in love. I admit that I first heard of the song through the pride radio station on iheartradio.

Sway
Sway
Price: $0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Salsa and Dance Unite, August 20, 2015
This review is from: Sway (MP3 Music)
Sway by the Pussycat Dolls is a song that celebrates the whole idea of dance and moving to a beat. Sway combines elements of salsa, dance, and pop. Due to the unique and direct nature of Sway, this song is best for those who have previously liked and/or enjoyed the songs such as Don’t Cha and/or When I Grow Up.

Come To Me Featuring Nicole Scherzinger (Explicit Album Version) [Explicit]
Come To Me Featuring Nicole Scherzinger (Explicit Album Version) [Explicit]
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Mix of Electronic, Dance, and R&B, August 20, 2015
Come To Me by Sean Diddy Combs featuring Nicole Scherzinger is another song that I also heard around 2006/2007. The woman in the song is basically saying that she is romantically interested in a man but that he must get to know her first before she decides how to proceed next. This is also another brilliant music collaboration that I’m very surprised did not get more attention around the time it was released on the radio in the area of Florida where I lived (through the navy).

Last Night Featuring Keyshia Cole (Amended Album Version)
Last Night Featuring Keyshia Cole (Amended Album Version)
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars R&B song involving the complexity of Love, August 20, 2015
Last Night by Diddy feat. Keyshia Cole is a song that I first heard around 2006/2007 when I was living in Florida. The vocals and collaboration between Keyshia Cole and Diddy create a powerful dramatic song about the complexities of love and a person coming to terms with what is going on in their love life.

Do It
Do It
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Dance And High Energy Pop Tune, August 20, 2015
This review is from: Do It (MP3 Music)
Do It by Nelly Furtado is a song that I first became familiar with after seeing it featuring on an MTV Europe music awards show around 2006/2007 (I think it might have been an MTV music awards show in Germany). Basically Do It by Nelly Furtado is a song about being around someone who makes your heart race and/or gives you butterflies in your stomach (metaphorically speaking).

Love Sex Magic
Love Sex Magic
Offered by SONY Music Entertainment Downloads LLC.
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Dance and R&B Come Hither Tune, August 20, 2015
This review is from: Love Sex Magic (MP3 Music)
Love Sex Magic by Ciara feat. Justin Timberlake is a daring song that touches on being with a person that pretty much makes your heart and/or pulse race. Basically, the song appears to also be about pursuing someone through the lense of an outgoing personality due to the lyrics being symbolized on what they plan to do with each other.

Feel Alive (Revolution Remix) [feat. DJ Poet]
Feel Alive (Revolution Remix) [feat. DJ Poet]
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Feeling Vibrant/Excitement of Life, August 20, 2015
Feel Alive by Fergie feat. Dj Poet and Pitbull is a tune about doing what a person can do to help them feel more alive in life. The musical collaboration with Feel Alive also adds to the meaning of aiming high in life and enjoying life regardless of what is going on externally.

Lucky
Lucky
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Seeing the Positive In Life Regardless of Suprises?, August 20, 2015
This review is from: Lucky (MP3 Music)
Lucky by Lucky Twice is a song that contains good vocals and appears to be another euro-dance song that is also most enjoyable for a person who is either secure in their love life and/or accepts their love life. This is because the song deals with a singer getting past the shock of their love life turning out differently than expected.

Renegades
Renegades
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Catchy Bluegrass and Indie Rock Tune, August 20, 2015
This review is from: Renegades (MP3 Music)
Renegades by the X Ambassadors appears to be a tune about living life without apologies and marching to the beat of one’s own dream and making the best out of life. The song is also a respectful ode to people considered eccentric such as with the lyrics all hail to the underdogs.

Cecilia And The Satellite
Cecilia And The Satellite
Price: $1.29

5.0 out of 5 starsIndie Rock Love Song, August 20, 2015
Cecilia And The Satellite by Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness basically is a musical narrative of how the singer has experienced many things of wonder in their life. However, the various unique moments in their life does not compare to how a certain person has made them feel since they appeared in their life.

I am previously a little familiar with some of Trisha Yearwood’s music because around the time I was 11 or 12 there was a brief period where my late adoptive mother and older adoptive sister would frequently play the songs She’s In Love With The Boy and That’s What I Like About You (probably from a cassette that one of them had). She shows a vast emotional range on the cd with both her duets such as Prizefighter feat. Kelly Clarkson, Walkaway Joe (feat. Don Henley), and In Another’s Eyes (feat. her husband Garth Brooks) as well as the non-duets with tunes such as I Remember You, Perfect Love, How Do I Live etc.

Mos (Ministry of Sound); BBC Radio 1’s Dance Anthems Ibiza is a two disc set of twenty songs on each disc that run a festive music feel of genres mixed from Trance, Dance, and Electronic. Various artists are featured on here (Avicii, Tiesto, Nero, Royksopp and Robyn, Coldplay, Calvin Harris, Alesso, Hurts, David Guetta, Showtek, Vassy, Lana Del Rey, Duke Dumont, Jax Jones, Basement Jaxx and more. My only caveat is that the vocals used for Avicii’s Lay Me Down song are ok, yet I was surprised to not hear the version that contains Adam Lambert’s vocals.

5.0 out of 5 stars From The Beauty Section of My Job, August 20, 2015
I preface this review by acknowledging that I understand that men and women of various hair types and lengths epitomize beauty. As for me I prefer to keep my hair longer because it is actually easier to get a wide variety of hairstyles out of my length on my income and the amount of time I have to wash, condition, and style my hair (I have hair that must be washed and conditioned at least 5-7 times a week regardless of whether I chemically straighten it or keep it curly and regardless of hair length). This Clairol Herbal Essences Long-Term Relationship Hair conditioner (23.7 ounces) is listed to contain juicy pomegranate essences and is perfect for moisturizing hair. I enjoy the pleasant fruity fragrance that it leaves on my hair.

I first heard of the classic song of Downtown by Petula Clark around the time I was 8 years old when my late adoptive mother was playing this song in the car with other family members and I present (on our way to what I think was some type of family party). Anyhow the lyrics evoke a blithe and lighthearted mood because it is a positive tune about getting outside and enjoying the sights and sounds of downtown when a person is exposed to the natural tests of life.

These Boots Are Made For Walkin by Nancy Sinatra is a bold pop song about a singer expressing in an assertive way of what she plans on doing with her boots. The music to the song is also well-timed with when she expresses with the lyrics how one of these days her boots are going to etc. etc.

This review is from: Melophobia (MP3 Music)
Melophobia by Cage The Elephant is a rock musical set that I was curious to hear after listening to some of their music featured on a local rock radio station and due to my husband greatly enjoying the song Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked. Anyhow Melophobia has the sentimental and strong Cigarette Daydreams and Come A Little Closer on the Melophobia collection. The indie rock vibe of Black Widow and uniqueness of Teeth added to the strength of Melophobia by Cage The Elephant as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Final Masterpiece From The Late Aaliyah, August 20, 2015
This review is from: Aaliyah (Audio CD)
Aaliyah by Aaliyah is a music set that combines romantic sensibility with moments of creating entertainment out of life. I greatly enjoy the songs One In A Million and Try Again and it is good to see More Than A Woman in this collection (because More Than A Woman is a radiant love song in a similar spirit as Try Again and One In A Million). We Need A Resolution (Featuring Timbaland) and Rock The Boat are also gratifying songs, although I was pleasantly surprised on how musically strong the rest of the songs on the Aaliyah by Aaliyah set was as well. I’m a little bit previously familiar with Aaliyah’s music because she was extremely popular during the time I was in middle school and I remember seeing her Romeo Must Die movie during my senior year of high school and a few months before I went away to bootcamp (through the U.S. navy).

X by Ed Sheeran is a romantic music set containing many of the quirky tunes that are currently pretty popular such as Singing, Thinking Out Loud, and Photograph. There are also some meaningful tunes that as far as I know have not yet received ample radio play but are still enjoyable to listen to such as Afire Love.

O Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack is a music set that my husband first purchased (around the time that the movie was released)when he was still stationed in Iceland (during his time in the navy). There are multiple songs on the O Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack that are elevating (my personal favorite song on this cd is Track number 8 Keep On The Sunny Side while my husband’s favorite track from this soundtrack (even with my husband’s naturally optimistic disposition)is number five I Am A Man of Constant Sorrow. Overall, the O Brother Where Are Thou soundtrack is good for either people who are eclectic music lovers and/or those who liked the O Brother Where Art Thou movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drama and Suspense Combined, August 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
I admit that one of the reasons why I saw the Captain Phillips movie had to do with the fact that I happened to still be in the navy (stationed in Norfolk Virginia) when the incident surrounding the MV Maerks Alabama occurred, and as with millions of others I heard of the story (that this movie is based on) through the news media. The Captain Phillips movie opens with Captain Richard Phillips himself (Tom Hanks) and his wife Andrea Phillips (Andrea Keener) getting ready for work in Underhill Vermont and leaving around the same time as they discuss various matters surrounding what is going on in their life. The movie also shows the area (Eyl Somalia) where the pirates such as Abduwali Muse (Barkhad Abdi)and Nour Najee (Faysal Ahmed) gathered. The Captain Phillips movie showed that even before MV Maersk Alabama disembarked from the Salalah Port Oman that Captain Phillips himself wanted many of the entrances to the ship closed the night before it went underway at sea. Before the pirates embarked the ship Captain Phillips and his crew initially tried calling U.S. Maritime Emergency but nobody picked up. However, they then called the Martime Trade Operations in Dubai and then got ahold of the U.S. Maritime Emergency line (In Northwood UK) the next day. The movie also has references to USS Bainbridge, USS Halyburton, and men from a Seal Staging base in Virginia that were all necessary to dispatch to deal with what happened. The situation was extremely serious to the point where communications between Admiral Michelle Howard and one of the ship’s commanding officers was orchestrated in a way to carry out a plan that was necessary to help prevent Captain Phillips from reaching the shores of his capturers. A medical professional by the last name of O’Brien was seen treating Captain Phillips during the movie and towards the end the following information is listed; Richard Phillips returned to Vermont on April 17, 2009 and was reunited with his family. Abduwali Muse was convicted of piracy and is currently serving 33 years at the Federal Correctional Complex in Terre Haute Indiana.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Unexpected Discovery, August 20, 2015
This review is from: The Grand Budapest Hotel (DVD)
Truthfully, I was looking for another dvd at my job to watch when I unexpectedly came across this movie. The Grand Budapest Hotel contains various action sequences that definitely keep you on the edge wanting to find out more. The front of the dvd cover has multiple famous celebrity names that are attached to this movie (Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Jude Law, Owen Wilson and more names etc). The Grand Budapest Hotel opens with a popular and gifted concierge named Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes) who is shown saying farewell to a wealthy and refined older lady named Madame D who loves him very much (Tilda Swinton). Gustave H also takes a young apprentice named Zero (Tony Revolori) under his wing. Gustave’s life starts to change dramatically after Madame D dies. Clues start to abound on what Gustave could be in for once he meets Madame D’s son Dmitri. Gustave admits to Dimitri of a relationship with Madame D that was more than just friends. However, Dimitri does not offer any sympathy to Gustave and rather chastises him for his romantic preferences for both men and women (through this scene alone the movie starts to paint the emotional tension that is starting between Dimitri and Gustave). The Special Features of this dvd include Mendl’s Secret Recipe (they actually show how to make one of the dessert confections from the movie), Cast and Wes Anderson’s Featurettes, and Stills Gallery.

Shaun the Sheep The movie was an obvious choice for both my husband and I because it was my husband himself who introduced me to the Shaun the Sheep series around 2009 (when we lived in Orlando, Florida). Anyhow, Shaun the Sheep ends up being a movie about Shaun The Sheep having to mastermind rescuing his farmer after a vehicle the farmer sleeps in goes into the city. What complicates matters is that Shaun the Sheep and his group have to navigate around a fanatical animal control worker named Trumper.

Astute operative Gabriella Teller (Alicia Vikander) ends up having to work with both Solo and Kuryakin simultaneously. Additionally Kuryakin and Teller have to pose as a couple, with Kuryakin suprising himself on how protective he gets of Teller. Their job assignments require them to work with individuals such as Victoria Vinciguerra (Elizabeth Debicki)who is is highly intelligent, beautiful, and evil all at the same time as well as Alexander Vinciguerra (Luca Calvani) and a relative of Teller named Uncle Rudi (Sylvester Groth).

This review is from: Notes from Heaven (Paperback)
Notes From Heaven by Robert Frandeen is a book that author apparently written from communications that he transcribed from a spirit in heaven. It is a quick read that does send a positive message that a person who believes in the spirit realm is not alone while they are truly on earth. There is riveting insight that I gleaned from this book that basically implies that heaven is actually a place where many of the spirits are actually engaged in some type of meaningful work.

I recently had the lemon strawberry French toast from this Columbia Heights ihop (along with eggs, sausage, bacon, hashbrowns with cheese and a sierra mist drink)which turned out to be toothsome. The server was also friendly and made sure that we (a friend that I went with)got our food in a reasonable timeframe. However, the cost and having to control what I eat are the only two reasons why I only go to Ihop occasionally.
