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.

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.

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 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.

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).
