5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Rock Beats, October 23, 2015
This review is from: Essential Toto (Audio CD)
The Essential Toto by Toto is another great collection for those who like 80’s music mixed with elements of classic rock because of their hits such as Hold The Line, Rosanna, Africa, and Pamela (which surprisingly I admit that I did not hear for the first time until 2008 when I was living in Norfolk, Virginia). There are also other fantastic songs within the collection of The Essential Toto by Toto that are not featured on certain radio stations (as far as I know such as Georgy Porgy, 99, I’ll Supply The Love etc).

Blow The Roof
Blow The Roof
Price: $6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars House Party Theme, October 23, 2015
This review is from: Blow The Roof (MP3 Music)
Blow The Roof by Flux Pavilion has multiple songs on this collection that have a house music and electronic beat. As mentioned in many of my previous reviews, I enjoy listening to Pandora radio and iheart radio (in addition to regular radio) for the widest range of music. However, I admit that I would not have heard of unique music by this artist had it not been for Pandora. I first of Flux Pavilion’s music from the I Still Can’t Stop melody. However, there are other great house and electronic songs on Blow The Roof by Flux Pavilion such as One, Two, Three and Starlight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eurythmics Classics, October 23, 2015
The Ultimate Collection by The Eurythmics captures the essence of quality 80’s hits of a synth pop and dance quality. Many may remember this group through their hits Sweet Dreams, Here Comes The Rain Again, Would I Lie To You etc(which are also within this collection). However, there are also other memorable hits on The Ultimate Collection by The Eurythmics available in this compilation that are not played as often on some radio stations such as “There Must Be An Angel.”

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
Food Lover’s Guide to Virginia; The Best Restaurants, Markets, & Local Culinary Offerings by Lorraine Eaton & Jim Haig is a guide to the various regions of Virginia mainly outside of the Northern Virginia area is a book good for Virginia prospective tourists and/or Virginia relocatees (whether 30 months or more from now or less time than that). For anyone looking at culinary destionations of Northern Virginia, good website resources would be the websites and publications connected to such companies as Northern Virginia magazine, Washingtonian magazine, and/or The Washington Post. Anyhow, Food Lover’s Guide to Virginia; The Best Restaurants, Markets, & Local Culinary Offerings by Lorraine Eaton & Jim Haig contains among the following;
A Micro Café Called the Dancing Tomato In Virginia Beach Virginia (starts on page 44)
The Tale of Three Chickens; The Listing of Three Chicken Restaurants in Portsmouth Virginia (Golden Skillet), Moseberth’s Fried Chicken (Portsmouth Virginia), and pollard’s Chicken (Norfolk Virginia) (pages 78-79),
Village Butcher shop in Virginia Beach Virginia run by brothers Brad & Johnny Hardison, a place listed to be called Delicate Oriental Grocery in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and French Bakery & Delicatessen in Norfolk Virginia (pages 98-99)
A section on Williamsburg Virginia (starts on page 117)

Campbell's Tomato and Sweet Basil Bisque Slow Kettle-Style Soups, 15.5 Ounce
Campbell’s Tomato and Sweet Basil Bisque Slow Kettle-Style Soups, 15.5 Ounce

5.0 out of 5 stars Affordable Soup and Delish, October 18, 2015
This 15.5 ounce container of Campbell’s Slow Kettle Style Sweet Tomato Bisque (Tomato & Sweet Basil Mix)is scrumptious and cooks pretty quickly. Additionally, this soup has the right amount of sweetness with a robust tomato flavor. I’m grateful that the place of my overnight job carries this because nights like tonight I do not feel like cooking and would much prefer having something that can be ready in less than 10 minutes when having more time to myself to relax before leaving for work. This Campbell’s Slow Kettle Style Sweet Tomato Bisque fits the bill because it is ready around 2 minutes via a microwave. I’m guessing that this Campbell’s Slow Kettle Style Sweet Tomato Bisque can be a standalone meal with pairing it with just bread and better. However, for me I admit to having this soup with Bar S Classic Corn Dogs dipped in honey batter (which my husband was able to have some corndogs ready for me within just 3 minutes) which paired perfectly with this Campbell’s Slow Kettle Style Sweet Tomato Bisque (Tomato & Sweet Basil mix)tomato soup.

Ultra Dance 14
Ultra Dance 14
Price: $12.99

5.0 out of 5 starsHigh Spirits Theme Club Mix, October 18, 2015
This review is from: Ultra Dance 14 (MP3 Music)
Ultra Dance 14 is a Various Artist collection of club and electronic music hits. There are a wide range of artist that would suit many people who listen to a vast range on the electronic/dance spectrum. Some of the radiant songs to play right away to get a feel of Ultra Dance 14 are Good Tine by Carly Jepsen (feat. Owl City), Chasing The Sun by The Wanted, All Night (Starkillers Remix) by Team Pitbull, Crave You (Adventure Club Remix) by Flight Facilities, Sparks (Turn Off Your Mind) by Nicky Romero and Alchemy (Above & Beyond Club Mix) by Above & Beyond. What I also enjoy about this music collection of Ultra Dance 14 is both the multi-faceted range of songs/artists on this collection and the feel good vibe that many of the music trances on Ultra Dance 14 epitomize.

Price: $2.98
9 used & new from $2.98

5.0 out of 5 stars From The Breakfast Bar Section At My Job, October 25, 2015
These Nature Valley Breakfast Biscuits (Honey flavored 5 pouches of 4 biscuits, 1.77 ounce per pouch) have a slight hint of honey taste without being too sugary. I also liked the crunchy texture. These are the type of breakfast biscuits that are good as standalone treats or with some drink such as hot cocoa.

The music collection of The E.N.D.

A good mix for those who like dance and/or pop music from the early 2000’s era (2000-2010).

My Mom's New Boyfriend
My Mom’s New Boyfriend
DVD
Price: $2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars How Weight Loss Changes A Woman and Those Around Her, October 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
My Mom’s New Boyfriend centers around how both the life of a woman and her son change in a span of just a few years. Henry Durand (Colin Hanks) eventually joins the FBI and becomes shocked when he does not recognize his mother Martha Durand (Meg Ryan) who completely changed on both the outside as well as the inside once she lost a significant amount of weight. With her thinner body and increased self-confidence, Martha Duran decides to now call herself Marty and has an improved outlook on life. Marty (Meg Ryan) is enjoying considerable good luck in good fortune in her love life via attracting multiple suitors (including an Italian chef and a young college student) since losing weight. Marty is even enjoying an auspicious/affluent lifestyle in her financial life due to shrewd investments she made with her money in the stock market. Both her son Henry Durand and his fiancée Emily Lott (Selma Blair) are fascinated by Marty’s new outlook. However, Henry Durand becomes concerned for his mother once Tommy Lucero (Antonio Banderas) enters her life. Both Marty and Tommy Lucero mutually fall in love with each other, but Marty’s son Henry does have reason to be concerned for his mother. One scriptwriting element that I enjoy about the film My Mom’s New Boyfriend is that it capture’s a character’s metamorphosis as she gains a thinner body and a different outlook on life (which is a big deal to me because movies featuring women who have successfully lost weight are rare for understandable reasons around body costumes, makeup, screenwriting elements etc.). I also enjoyed how the scriptwriting in My Mom’s New Boyfriend captured how the characters in Marty’s life acted in regards to her weight loss (Marty’s son Henry, Henry’s fiancée Emily, and Marty’s boyfriend Tommy upon seeing some of her photos before she lost the weight and manifested her thin body). My Mom’s New Boyfriend is a movie also suitable for those who enjoy comedy films that take a humor type of spin on the FBI/CIA.

Anjunabeats Vol. 10
Anjunabeats Vol. 10
Price: $15.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Spiritual Club Music?, October 23, 2015
This review is from: Anjunabeats Vol. 10 (MP3 Music)
Anjunabeats Vol. 10 by Above & Beyond contains a varied chillout, trance, and electronic music mix on this compilation feat. various artists. I was overjoyed to here Home (Genix Remix)again even with a different version from when I first heard it on their Tristate collection (which I purchased back in June 2007). I enjoy the song Home due to a reason different from what most people think. Contrary to how I may appear to many, I’m actually very comfortable in my skin, my racial backgrounds, and even see the good within myself even as I’m in the process of increasing my self-love around my physical appearance and growing wisdom/intelligence. However, Home resonates with me because for me it is a tune about finding a sense of belonging and community even with my new age/occult beliefs and working towards increasing my self-confidence/self-appreciation (I have been fortunate to come across people who were willing to welcome me to their group despite my level of self-confidence but with the caveat that I give up my belief in past lives/reincarnation and give up my belief that even the most evil of souls do not have to permanently stay In a hellish afterlife and can eventually ascend to higher more heavenly realms and/or reincarnate back on earth). There are so many other brilliant songs on Anjuna Beats Vol. 10 by Above & Beyond such as England, Inception, Alchemy, Walter White, Believe In Me, Liquid Love etc. As another person online implied in a similar way, metaphorically speaking, Anjunabeats Vol. 10 by Above & Beyond sounds like a compilation that would be played in a music dance club in a heavenly afterlife (imaginatively speaking).

Offered by Pharmapacks
Price: $4.93
24 used & new from $0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars From The Cereal Aisle Of My Job, October 23, 2015
This Celestial Seasonings Fruit Tea Sampler (18 Tea Bags 1.4 ounce 40 grams) contains a delectable blend of Raspbaerry Zinger, Country Peach Passion, Wild Berry Zinger, True Blueberry, and Black Cherry Berry flavors. I enjoy each of the flavors within this Celestial Seasonings Tea pack set yet I’m pleasantly surprised how much I enjoy the Country Peach Passion, Black Cherry Berry, and the True Blueberry flavors. I usually just prepare the tea by putting some tap water in a coffee cup in my apartment microwave for three minutes either with the tea bag in the coffee cup so that the flavor can seep in the water as it is microwaving or sometimes I can also just put the tea bag in the water after it has been microwaved for three minutes and sometimes heat it for just one more minute (in case I left the water in the microwave a long time to do other things etc.). Either way, these Celestial Seasonings Fruit Tea Sampler (18 Count) tea packs can also be enhanced with a little honey in the heated tea.

Now That’s What I Call Music 31 has a wide range of music from the 2008/2009 era that touches on an eclectic range of music genres; If U Seek Amy by Britney Spears (representing the dance/pop genre), I Run To You by Lady Antebellum (representing the country genre), You Found Me by The Fray and If Today Was Your Last Day by Nickelback(representing the rock genre), Right Round by Florida, Pokerface by Lady Gaga and I Know You Want Me by Pitbull representing the electronic/dance genres. Of course there are more artists featured on Now That’s What I Call Music 31 as well’ such as Beyonce, Neyo,Black Eyed Peas,Pink, 3OH3, and Ciara feat. Justin Timberlake etc. I enjoy this collection because it reminds me of a period in my life where I truly believed that the sky was the limit and anything is possible when aligned with my intuition and higher self (which fortunately I’m gradually regaining back that belief). Anyhow, Now That’s What I Call Music 31 is a substantial music collection for eclectic music lovers because of the mix of music genres and artists/groups on Now 31.

Monstercat 022 - Contact
Monstercat 022 – Contact
Price: $8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Fusion of Futuristic Electronic and Dance, October 23, 2015
Monstercat 022-Contact is an electronic and discopop/house pop/futuristic pop compilation of various artists that run the gamut from the song The Difference Between Us and Aliens by Stephen Walking and Genesis by Protostar. What I enjoy the most about this compilation of Monstercat 022-Contact featuring various artists is the distinctive music found within this collection. From my perspective, Monstercat 022-Contact sounds like some music that could probably feature within some sci-fi fantasy story within a sci-fi themed party song and/or some sc-fi/futuristic tv episode featuring elements of a heavenly utopia and/or cartoon setting of some characters preparing for an upcoming event.

Ultra 2014 contains an eclectic range of dance, electronic, and house music hits on this compilation. Ultra 2014 also sounds like a compilation that could easily be played at a weekend party and/or a housewarming party with a club theme because of how sanguine the vibe of he first six songs are on the cd; Thinking About Yoy by Calvin Harris feat. Ayah Marar, Live For The Night by Krewella, Atmosphere by Kaskade, Boneless by Steve Aoki Chris Lake & Tuajmo, and the sixth song being Legacy by Nicky Romero feat. Krewella.

This Lucid 10 Inch Memory Foam Mattress-(Dual Layered Certi Pur US Certified Queen Size) is extremely comfortable. I’m so grateful that my husband and I got this mattress from my mother-in-law because this mattress is extremely soft and cushioned in a way to where it is effortlessly easier to fall asleep and provides sturdy support on my back. Of course, my husband enjoys sleeping on this mattress as well (one of the reasons pertaining to the mattress being spring-free and provides a supportive foundation without being too solid).

The music collection of Finest Selection The Greatest Hits by The Saturdays contain the perfect blend of dance, pop, and club music.

Exposure (Deluxe Edition) by Expose contains an abundant selection of dance/pop hits. I admit that I’m familiar with some of the music from Expose because of being exposed to hits such as Come Go With Me around the time I was 7 years old (I would playfully imagine myself as a singer during this time when I was singing this and other sings). Anyhow, there are so many other memorable pop dance hits on Exposure (Deluxe Edition) by Expose such as Let Me Be The One and Point Of No Return.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music Heart, October 30, 2015
One Love (Deluxe Version) by David Guetta features a strong music collection of dance, electronic music, and club music. I admit that my guilty pleasure songs from One Love (Deluxe Version) by David Guetta are Sexy (Feat. Akon), When Love Takes Over (feat. Kelly Rowland), Revolver (Madonna vs. David Guetta feat. Lil Wayne) and Toyfriend (feat. Wynter Gordon) because of the unabashed and thrilling melodies and lyrics to these songs. Additionally, One Love (Deluxe Version) also reads like a Who’s Who in the music industry (Fergie, Lmfao, Kid Cudi, Neyo, Will. I. Am. , Apl De Ap from the Black Eyed Peas, Estelle etc.).

Devil Without A Cause [Explicit]
Devil Without A Cause [Explicit]
Price: $8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Unadulterated Kid Rock, October 30, 2015
I preface this review by making it clear that I do enjoy Beyonce’s music and feel that whatever Kid Rock might have publicly said about her is really just him secretly admiring her as a musician/music performer. However, I was curious to check out the music collection of Devil Without A Cause by Kid Rock because I’m familiar with some of his music from back around 1998-1999 when I was finishing up high school. The first songs that I remember first hearing by Kid Rock are Bawitdaba and I Am The Bullgod through a local alternative radio station the frequently played Kid Rock’s music. I ended up hearing Cowboy some time later. What I enjoy the most about this music collection is that he is not afraid to honestly bare his music soul publicly even on controversial matters and in a storytelling type of format. For instance, in track 14 of the music mashup of Black Chick White Guy/I Am The Bullgod he recalls a tale (I’m not 100% sure if it is himself or someone he knows) of an interracial couple first getting together as high school students and basically does not sugarcoat that the female ended up pregnant by freshman year of high school after they hooked up several times throughout middle and high school (some conservative people may gasp when he admits to them even hooking up in one of their school bathrooms during track 14). He sticks around as she has his baby(a boy) but stress and life eventually tear them apart. Some time later, they reunite again after he is making more money and they get intimate again. She has two more children and one of them is a daughter that he thought was his. He does not put down the daughter and even remarks how beautiful she is but the complicated part is that the character in Kid Rock’s musical story finds out that the daughter is not actually his. They eventually break up again but the guy eventually raises the son as his own and loves him very much even to this day. With this storytelling aspect in just track 14 alone maybe he could meet up with R-Kelly (even though he is from another music genre but R-Kelly has released the soap opera like yet interesting trapped in the the closet chapters that can be currently seen on youtube) and Kid Rock can get ideas on how he can translate just track 14 (Black Chick White Guy/I Am The Bullgod)alone into a play.

Welcome Reality by the group Nero features some brilliant electronic hits that run the gamut from Promises and the opening of 2808. There are multiple club/electronic hits on this music collection. However, Nero’s musical soul is greatly enhanced with the passionate love songs of Crush On You and My Eyes.

5.0 out of 5 stars 35 Tim Mcgraw Originals, October 30, 2015
This review is from: 35 Biggest Hits (MP3 Music)
35 Biggest Hits by Tim McGraw contains among some of the best and heartwarming country songs from Tim McGraw’s career such as It’s Your Love (feat. Faith Hill which fortunately is also one of my husband’s fave songs from Tim Mcgraw that reminds him of me), Just To See You Smile, I Like it I Love It, For A Little While, My Best Friend and more hits. I enjoy the romantic and uplifting vibes from many of these songs. I admit that I’m also previously familiar with Tim McGraw’s music both because my husband introduced me to a greatest hits collection by Tim McGraw around 2002/2003 and I also first heard the song Indian Outlaw by Tim McGraw on the radio inside a car back around the mid 1990’s (around sometime between 1994-1995 because my late adoptive mother was an intense fan of country music and country living).

This review is from: Caligula (Amazon Instant Video)
I’m normally a person who prefers to watch feel good, happy and peppy type of movies, but something compelled me to check out the movie Caligula to expand beyond my own biases and how I perceive the world in order to take my creativity to another level (especially for my scriptwriting and authorship goals). The film Caligula opens with the following quote; What Shall it Profit a man if he should gain the whole world and lose his soul (listed to be from Mark 8:36). The film Caligula then shows the film to be listed as a Bob Guccione and Penthouse Films International Presents Caligula. Anyhow the movie Caligula stars Malcolm McDowell as Caligula, Helen Mirren as Caligula’s wife Caesonia,Teresa Ann Savoy as Caligula’s sister Drusilla, Peter O’ Toole as Caligula’s granduncle Tiberius, and John Gielgud as Tiberius’s political advisor and friend Nerva. One of the strong plot points of the movie Caligula is that it is shown why others view Caligula the way they do because of the way he treats even the men who were most loyal to him. Caligula’s wife Caesonia and his sister Drusilla are probably only among a few of the people that Caligula shows some humanity towards. This is important because the movie features a scene where Caligula’s sister Drusilla did not want Caligula to marry Caesonia because she was considered not attractive in the conventional sense, too old, and too extravagant (a spendthrift). The movie actually shows the character of Drusilla hoping to dissuade her brother Caligula from entering into a romantic liaison and/or possible long-term partnership with Caesonia by also explaining how promiscuous Caesonia is (but that only draws Caligula towards Caesonia even more).

Musique Vol. 1 (1993-2005) by Daft Punk contains a pristine music collection of electronic hits such as Harder Better Faster Stronger, Robot Rock, and One More Time. I admit that I forgot which song I first heard by them, yet I at least remember hearing Around The World by Daft Punk back around 2001/2002 when I was still in Japan and I eventually made the connection (as with many others) that Kanye West’s Stronger is inspired by Daft Punk’s Harder Faster Stronger (not that there is anything wrong with that especially since I’m guessing West probably got permission to sample Harder Faster Stronger by Daft Punk for his Stronger song).

The Secret Circle: The Complete First Season
DVD

5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanted Writing, October 30, 2015
I admit that I checked out this tv series of The Secret Circle Season One because I read online that Gale Harold is featured in this series (after I saw him in another tv series). Additionally, The Secret Circle tv series appealed to my tv watching genre preferences due to my confessed interest in the occult and with movies/tv series featuring witches. Anyhow, The Secret Circle tv series (season one) features some good music of which I’m not sure if a music soundtrack is available for the tv series (one of the songs that plays near the beginning of the Secret Circle series is Young Blood by the Naked & Famous). Anyhow, The Secret Circle follows the tale of a teenager named Cassie Blake (Britt Robertson) who reluctantly accepts that it is part of her destiny to be a witch after she meets other teenagers in her new hometown (Chance Harbor Washington) who have also lost a parent. Adam Conant (Thomas Dekker) and Diana Meade (Shelley Hennig) work the hardest to convince her to join their secret coven. The teenage coven also includes other members as well such as Melissa Glaser (Jessica Parker Kennedy), Jake Armstrong (Chris Zylka), and Faye Chamberlain (Phoebe Tonkin). Charles Meade (Gale Harold) is the father of Diana Meade and is definitely not the harmless person he initially appears to be on the outside. There are more actors/actresses of course who contribute to the TV series The Secret Circle Season One (I was just intuitively going by what I logically felt would be strong details to share).

Phoebe and Prue at first get off to a rough start at the beginning of the series, especially over what appears to be some trustfund guy that appeared to indirectly affect their bond. However, Piper helps serve as the mediator and bring Phoebe and Prue to get along.

Sofia The First (Season One) opens with an event of the Kingdom’s princes riding on flying horses. Princess Sofia loves her family, friends, and her life. However she would like to enter the derby herself and asks Sir Gilliam one of the organizers if she could join.

However, Sofia the First wants to break tradition and enlists the help of her father. He asks James to help his sister train for the derby, but it is complicated by one of the other riders Hugo making fun of Sofia for even daring want to enter the Derby. Just this episode alone has a positive message of going after what you set your mind to with strong determination. Sofia The First Season One is great for both casual tv watchers and aspiring writers/scriptwriters because of the uplifting vibes/message affiliated with Sofia The First.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Unexpected Positive Message, October 30, 2015
The Way You Move (Club Mix Explicit) by Outkast feat. Sleepy Brown is an appealing song that basically is a mix of club music (as it lists in the title), R&B, and dance. The title of the song pretty much sums up the song’s meaning, yet I also interpret the song to symbolize liking many things about a person. I admit that I first heard The Way You Move by Outkast (feat. Sleepy Brown) back around 2003 when I was living in California. One of the positives about this song is that women of various shapes, sizes, skin complexions, hair textures/hair lengths,and personalities are featured in the online music video that is currently available for free viewing (which to me the online music video sends out a powerful/healing indirect message of why it is helpful to think highly of yourself regardless of how you are externally seen and/or perceived).

Please know that I understand that both Kimora Lee Simmons and Russell Simmons have successfully moved on with their love lives. This dvd caught my interest initially due to the feature of publicists and Kimora Lee Simmons self-confident and enterprising persona. This dvd of Kimora Life In The Fab Lane Season 1 is a spellbinding foray into her entourage and her life. Dvds like this are an important study because it is common knowledge that women as successful/accomplished as Kimora Lee Simmons do not always allow the public into their lives via either a dvd or book. I’m grateful that she did because I unexpectedly obtained more various life insights out of the dvd that what I initially expected to get. The following are some of the riveting scenes/information in the dvd Kimora Lee Simmons; Life In The Fab Lane Season 1;

Veep Season 1 stars Julia Louis Dreyfus as a zealous and energetic Vice President Selina Meyer who enjoys her job and has many workers surrounding her who keep up on the day to day communications of what goes on in the white house (multiple employees that perform different communications/public relations specialist roles). One of the scenes involves the planning around getting ready for a political fundraising event. There are multiple cultural references as well such as Simon & Garfunkel, The Washington Post, Doogie Howser etc. Anna Chlumsky plays as Amy Brookheimer, one of Meyer’s right hand assistants and I noticed that Kate Burton (from the tv series Scandal) also makes an appearance in Veep. I admit that Veep Season One, while fictional and based on the idea of Selina Meyer (Julia Louis Dreyfus)starting as Vice President, does underscore from my perspective that I feel that our country is ready for a female president (Hillary Clinton). I’m normally for whoever is the best person for the job (regardless of whether they are Republican or Democrat) but I currently prefer to avoid saying why I prefer to vote for Clinton over who currently looks to most likely win the Republican ticket; Donald Trump (especially since I would otherwise feel like a a hypocrite because I reviewed a book by his daughter Ivanka Trump back in January 2015 before I even knew for sure that Trump was certainly running for president and a Travel & Leisure magazine subscription magazine back in February 23,2011 for the February 2011 Travel & Leisure magazine issue that also featured an article about Ivanka Trump on page 40).

I first heard of some songs by Linkin Park around the summer of 2001 when I was stationed in Yokosuka Japan (there were some people on my ship playing music from Hybrid Theory and they seemed to enjoy it). Anyhow, Hybrid Theory by Linkin Park contains an immaculate blend of rock and hip-hop beats that strongly beat out the melodies in the songs. Many are probably familiar with Linkin Park’s songs such as One Step Closer, Crawling, and In The End. However, there are some other intense songs on Hybrid Theory by Linkin Park such as Runaway and A Place For My Head that have deep compelling meanings. For instance, I take the message of Runaway to be similar in the vein as Cult of Personality by In Living Colour in that it is ok to seek knowledge and wisdom from other sources and people as well as from within yourself (while making sure to be careful to run what you learn through your own intuition/logic while being careful to avoid easily following uncritically).

The Storyteller by Carrie Underwood showcases her impeccable singing voice and this music collection does live up to the Storyteller title. Even some of the just casual listeners of country music would enjoy hits such as Renegade Runaway, Heartbeat, Smoke Break (for instance Smoke Break touches on the situation of multiple people doing their best to make an adequately financially stable living with tough determination), What I Never Knew I Always Wanted etc. Storyteller by Carrie Underwood is perfect for the many who are familiar with any of Carrie Underwood’s previous music and/or are eclectic music listeners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mischief Among Communication Directors?, November 5, 2015
West Wing Season One has various well-known actors and actresses such as Allison Janney, Martin Sheen, Rob Lowe etc. West Wing Season One is also a good tv show to watch for those who like to watch career trends related to public relations, advertising and/or ideas for career scriptwriting. For instance, there is a scene where Rob Lowe, a White House communications director, is temporarily assigned to entertain a group of grade schoolers who won an essay contest. He gets nervous and wants to find out which kid is related to someone who he is trying to impress. It turns out that the teacher of the class is the one he has to be concerned about because she ends up correcting him in regards to what he says about the Roosevelt Room named after Theodore Roosevelt (in real life there is a U.S. navy aircraft carrier also named after Roosevelt; i.e The USS Roosevelt). There is also a reference made to the USS Eisenhower (which I found interesting because I had been stationed on that ship before during part of my time in the U.S. navy). West Wing Season One in no way related to who I see becoming the Presidential nominees (it is obvious that it looks like that Trump is going to win the Republican nomination while Clinton wins the Democratic nomination, I do prefer for Clinton to win yet I understand that this is not the review for me to elaborate doing so).

The crazy part is that the navy commander had unexpectedly died after eating a rib meal where he was invited by the president (no the president did not do it). Anyhow, NCIS Season one is great for anyone who enjoys watching military themed television shows.

Downtown Abbey Season 1 is listed to open during the time period of April 1912. Right away, I recognized that one of the actresses (Margaret Natalie Smith) who plays Violet Crawley from the Harry Potter movies (Minerva McGonagall). There are so many twists and turns in this series as the various workers of Downton Abbey interact with each other and the family that they are employed for. It also shows how some of the family members are capable of humanity. For example, there is an episode where one of the servants is about to drive away from the mansion due to his leg not working properly. However, one of the decision makers of Downton Abbey decides to stop him and prevent him from going partially out of what seems to be his concern for an employee who shows promise but is still working through an obvious health issue.

On My Mind by Ellie Goulding is a memorable pop and electro song that appears to be about someone and/or a happenstance that stands out in your mind. I read an article online where there was media speculation on who may have inspired the song On My Mind. I believe Ellie Goulding’s statement when she explained that the song is not inspired by who many think the muse is (Ed Sheeran). However, for spiritually karmic reasons, I prefer to avoid further explaining my thoughts on who and/or what inspired On My Mind by Ellie Goulding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unintended Outcome?, October 30, 2015
I intend to watch the 2015 film Our Brand Is Crisis sometime within the next 14 days. However, I followed my intuition to check out the documentary that the 2015 movie is based on in order to get a stronger understanding of what is happening and to help me further understand and enjoy the 2015 movie of Our Brand is Crisis (starring Sandra Lee Bullock and Billy Bob Thornton) when I go to watch it. I admit that shocked is probably an understatement a person can use to describe what is listed online to be Our Brand is Crisis from the year 2005. The following are some of the facts that I was able to write down from the Our Brand Is Crisis Documentary (any that I left out was done with harmless intent as I was also doing my best to relax a little while watching Our Brand is Crisis documentary);
The Film opens February 2003-Anti government riots break out in the streets of La Paz Bolivia. One Year Earlier February 2002; Greenville Carville Schrum (GCS) a political consulting firm in Washington D.C. is contacted by MNR Party Candidate Gonzalo (Goni) Sanchez De Lozada an MNR Party Candidate. One of the Scenes then flashes to Jeremy Rosner GCS Pollster & Chief Strategist.
Then the screen flashes Boynton Films Presents In Association with The BBC, Films Transit, Urban Empire, and The Slough Pond Company a film by Rachel Boynton. The film lists that Goni Sanchez was a Bolivian businessman raised in the U.S. From 1993 to 1997 he was president of Bolivia one of the poorest countries in Latin America. As president, Goni opened Bolivia to foreign investment in a controversial program called capitalization. This capitalization move was unpopular with many Bolivians but garnered him international praise. Now In 2002, Goni was running for president again as one of 11 candidates. He hired a team of American political consultants to advise his campaign on polling, campaign management, strategy, and advertising. The consultants flew to Bolivia to help Goni communicate his message to the people; James Carville GCS strategist, Stan Greenberg GCS pollster, and they showed Carlos Mesa the VP candidate to Goni’s presidential candidacy. There was a pop culture reference of Winnie The Pooh. Other details; Tad Devine an Advertising consultant for GCS was featured, Tal Berstein GCS consultant, Mauricio Balcazar Goni’s Press Advisor, Then there is a tv ad where Goni states; Carlos mesa and I have prepared an emergency plan, restore social security, invest money in gas for youth education because Bolivia had more natural gas than any other country in Latin America; they were planning public works to create jobs and stop the crisis, goni and mesa’s message at the time; were planning public works to create jobs and stop the crisis, the economy must be managed with honesty and seriousness, its not time for radical change or irresponsible experiments. Further quotes affiliated with Goni; we can stop the crisis and return hope to Bolivia. Then who appears to be one of Goni’s PR (press men) says yes it can be done with a photo of an old man smiling and the Spanish saying Si Se Puede (yes it can be done). Goni;s campaign headquarters is shown and his political rival Evo Morales an MAS Party Candidate; Then there is a female journalists’s luncheon at Goni’s home, an informed female journalist posed this question to Goni at the luncheon; they say indigenous leaders are stealing some of the MNR’s traditional voters, supporters of the MNR’s national revolution in 1952 what do you think, Goni’s Reply; It’s a strange phenomenon, very authoritarian, leaders like Evo Morales force communities to vote a certain way, we’ll challenge this in the elections, you can’t say to a town if I don’t win here the indigenous leaders will punish you.
More Details in the Our Brand is Crisis documentary; Manfred Reyes Villa NFR Party Candidate, part of Reye’s statement; A President must be sensitive, he must travel throughout the country listening to the people we no longer want to see 800,000 children working in the streets selling candies, polishing shoes, or washing cars, that must be the Boliva of the past, the Boliva of the old, Cochabamba you allowed me to change this city as its mayor, now I ask you to help me change our beloved Bolivia so we live with sovereignty, dignity, and care for one another. Then the documentary moves to a scene at the home of Carlos Morales-Goni’s campaign manager. Another scene at what is listed in the documentary to be called the Marketing SRL in Bolivia shows the citizens (a forcus group)of Bolivia mentioning this about Goni for the purpose of the American political communication consultants collecting polling information; Remember when Goni was president what did he do? Social Security, health insurance, educational reform, capitalization, what do you think of capitalization and Goni/ He says capitalization created jobs, it didn’t, it brought investments, foreigners came took our jobs and left us with nothing, Goni thinks the last time he was president everything was pink, just great. Now Goni wants to do everything the same, which is bad, our governments haven’t met our basic needs; education, housing, jobs, that’s why we feel discontent. Then there is a scene showing Manuel Rocha- U.S. Ambassador to Bolivia. Election Final Results; Goni-22.5%, Evo-20.9%, Manfred-20.8%, fast forward to 7 months after election February 9, 2003-Goni admits that the country of Bolivia is at a crossroads and implied that changing the income taxes are a way to get the money flowing in Bolivia again. The Our Brand is Crisis documentary listed these tax proposals from Goni; If You Earn 1000 BS (143 dollars a month at the time) then the tax is 15 BS (2 dollars per month), If you earn 2000 BS (285 dollars per month) the tax is 140 BS (20 U.S. dollars at the time; 2003).

I became interested in knowing more about the Limitless TV Series season one after seeing in a magazine article that Bradley Cooper endorses this TV Series. This was enough to convince me because my husband and I first watched the Limitless movie together when it was released back in 2011 and I even own a Limitless dvd (which I admit to buying last year). Anyhow, the Limitless TV series (Season One) opens with Brian Finch (Jake McDorman) running from FBI agent Rebecca Harris (Jennifer Carpenter). Finch’s life gets dramatically altered once one of his professionally accomplished friends gives him a drug that helps to dramatically increase his brainpower/mindpower. What complicates the issue is that he finds that there are multiple people that take the drug, including a character named Adam Honeycutt. Bradley Cooper also features in the Limitless television series as U.S. Senator Eddie Mora.

Jeff Jones President of MCKinney, Jeff Larson, VP of Subway Global Marketing, and Suzanne Greco VP of Research & Development are some of the people also featured in Pitch Season One. Of course, there is more to Pitch Season One than what I just wrote.

Retrospective; The Music of Mad Men contains a wide range of relaxing vintage, chillout, and classic hit music that is perfect for relaxation. I’m lucky to have found out about this music set from being on a mailing list affiliated with the AMC channel (and I admit that I was advised to watch the Mad Men show from talking to a freelancer that I met at an Orlando Florida Abraham Hicks seminar back in May 23,2009 after they noted my interest in public relations/advertising). There is a wide selection of eclectic music artists featured on the music soundtrack of Retrospective; The Music of Mad Men such as; My Special Angel by Bobby Helms, Don’t Think Twice Its All Right by Bob Dylan, Cest Magnifique by Christina Hendricks, The End of The World by Skeeter Davis (though it is hard for me to unsee the image from my mind regarding the Girl Interrupted movie that this song is affiliated with and featuring the late Brittany Murphy, Wynona Ryder, Angelina Jolie etc.), Shahdaroba by Roy Orbison, Zou Bisou Bisou, The Beach Boys, and more music on Retrospective; The Music of Mad Men (feat. various artists from different music genres).

You’ve Got A Book In You; A Stress Free Guide To Writing The Book of Your Dreams by Elizabeth Sims covers areas such as Planning Your Book and Setting Off Your Journey As An Author (starts on page 97), A Stress-free Guideline Stormwriting example featuring the characters Zoe, Jim, Lt. Halsey, Senator Carson (pg. 188), Interviewing Yourself About Your book (page 241) and more. This book of You’ve Got A Book In You by Elizabeth Sims is important to me because I strongly believe it is part of my life purpose and destiny to at least write on the side regardless of what others think and what is included in this book helps keep me accountable. For instance, I received a great intuitive idea to write freestyle at least 4 times a week while doing the actual book on the side regardless of what I do as my main job and regardless of when my works are published with little care as to whether my writing generates attention while I’m alive. However, I admit to have slipped up on the 4 times a week this week on my freestyle writing goal and know that it is ok to allow myself a chance to rest from writing until after my birthday this Sunday, but to jump back on the metaphorical writing horse by next week. Books such as You’ve Got A Book In You by Elizabeth Sims are portable forms of spiritual encouragement to me regardless of how my professional life unfolds.

Hair To Dye For; A How To Color Guide by Penny Baptista (listed to also be available in Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, and Italian editions) contains a wealth of information for those who are ready to take the color plunge. The following is some of the helpful information included in Penny Baptista’s coloring book; Haircolor can be divided up into five categories based on the way color interacts with hair; temporary, semi-permanent and demi permanent, permanent, high-lift, natural organic colors, levels and tone (in relation to how light or dark someone’s hair color is and how to tell their level), hair color application techniques, and more. I’m psychologically ready for whatever positive and/or negative attention I would get for lightening my hair, but I had to make sure that I was permanently ready to give up on using chemical relaxers on my hair even though I plan on only coloring my hair once every 6 months (reluctantly I admit to understanding firsthand what Chris Rock meant when he joked about women who are addicted to the relaxers in his 2009 Good Hair documentary). Fortunately, my husband loves me how I already am (even with how much I currently weigh) but he is also supportive of me lightening my hair. However, I admit to also having the courage to lighten my hair from the following music videos; Keyshia Cole’s red hair in the music video Give It Up To Me ft. Sean Paul, Keyshia Cole’s red hair in the music video Last Night feat. P. Diddy, Keri Hilson’s hair in the music video Lose Control ft. Nelly, Rihanna’s hair in the music video Cheers Drink To That feat. Avril Lavigne, Mary J. Blige’s hair in the music video Just Fine, Beyonce’s hair in the music video Drunk In Love feat. Jay Z, Kat De Luna’s hair in the music video Drop It Low, blonde curly haired model in the music video Hotel Room Service by Pitbull, the blonde curly haired model in the music video Gasolina by Daddy Yankee, Jennifer Lopez’s hair in I’m Real (Alt version), The Red haired dancer in Yo No Se by Pajama Party, and Hips Don’t Lie by Shakira ft. Wyclef Jean. I admit that I also obviously take back a past facebook post that compared one famous female with two other celebrities after she dyed her hair blond (I don’t consider the facebook post I wrote to be negative, but I could have stayed more neutral about her decision to lighten her hair).

I reluctantly admit that I purchased Real Housewives of D.C. Season One back in August 11, 2011 when I originally and previously had my mind made up to permanently live here in the D.C. area no matter what and partially due to a curiosity in how some of the D.C. area residents from the wealthier socio-economic classes live. A preview of some of the information from some of the participants on the Real Housewives of D.C.; Stacie is a Real Estate Agent who has attended Harvard Business School, she has a real estate portfolio of 150 million dollars and makes at least 25-30 million dollars in real estate per year. Stacie has been married to her husband Jason for 12 years and has a daughter named Catherine. Participant Lynda runs a top modeling agency in the Washington D.C. area and has 4 children (Lynda’s work has brought her into contact with ambassadors and dignitaries, she has a boyfriend named Ebong). Michaele Salahi has done modeling and organized events pertaining to charity events, meetings, dinners. Another contestant Cat is married to a White House photographer and another participant named Mary Amon’s whose husband who was invited to an event hosted by Washingtonian magazine for his fashion sense. Real Housewives of D.C. Season One feature candid thoughts from some of the D.C. housewives on why there are clashes. For instance, at one of the dinner parties there is a chef (Cheo) that is invited to make the meals and some of his clients have been known to be Janet Jackson, Tyra Banks, and Patrick Ewing. The dinner party host gets to know one of the guests and right away there are clashes in regards to differing opinions on Tyra Banks, President Obama, and former President Bush. Additionally, speaking of President Obama, the Real Housewives of D.C. Season One also includes two people (Michaele Salahi, Tareq Salahi) that have a controversial media distinction of being part of the 2009 U.S. state dinner security breaches.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Price: $9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A Well Intentioned Plan However, November 5, 2015
The Nightmare Before Christmas centers around the character of Jack Skellington. Skellington is well-known in his world of Halloweentown. However, he wants to do something different for the tradition of Halloweentown and has an idea to try to take on the role of Santa Claus. Skellington manages to use his leadership skills to convince other Halloweentown residents such as rag doll Sally and the Mayor of Halloweentown to help him with his plans for Christmastown. The Nightmare Before Christmas is a comical family movie filled with a little bit of dark humor. For this aspiring writer/scriptwriter I also saw character development around what can happen if a person may try to do something, even under the best intentions if they were actually wired for something else (i.e. Jack Skellington is made for Halloweentown and actually has a big heart of gold but wants to change up his life by spearheading Christmas traditions). For me, watching The Nightmare Before Christmas is interesting timing because I’m in the process of deciding between two long-term career goals that may affect how my life turns out in the 2030’s when I’m in my 50’s (one is filled with more excitement, higher pay comparable to what I had while in the U.S. navy for repaying my student loans, and opportunities to work anywhere even within the company I currently work at but the only catch is that it would require more schooling, entry into the field is more exclusive/competitive, and/or may or may not fit with what my soul’s natural gifts are while the other idea seems to fit with my soul’s makeup and is more wide open with less barrier to entry,but does not seem as exciting, higher pay in the long-term is not guaranteed for repaying my student loans, and less job stability/job security). Anyhow, the film The Nightmare Before Christmas is also one of those type of movies that actually leaves you smiling and feeling uplifted after watching it even with the setting being Halloweentown and the animation that comes with the film.

The Good Wife Season One features the character of Alicia Florrick (Julianna Marguiles) who unexpectedly has to both revamp and reinvent her life once her husband Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) gets caught in charges related to corruption. Fortunately, Alicia Florrick has some professional skills as a lawyer that come in handy as she works to rebuild her life and that for those around her (i.e. her kids and her mother in law who steps in to help her out). As she works to re-establish her professional credibility she also is forced to deal with some of her husband’s professional rivals and/or enemies. Of course, there are many more actors and actresses who contribute to season one of The Good Wife (I was just listing the information I was intuitively guided to share). Nonetheless, The Good Wife is great for those who enjoy tv shows that include themes of professional empowerment.
