shoes for crews review

Falcon

Men’s, Black

Style# 6007

http://www.shoesforcrews.com

These Falcon shoes that are a size 9.5 Wide in Men’s were actually my second purchase  when I bought these on February 17, 2017. This was because I had ordered some Panther II shoes on October 9, 2016 that were not as comfortable. The positives to these Falcon shoes are that they are a definite improvement from the previous shoes that I ordered. Additionally, I currently am blessed to work at a University food service job that has quality work conditions yet also requires good non-stick shoes due to the fact that some of the floors can get a little slippery due to the high demand of food required to be served from the high volume of customers that sometimes come in during the week .These Falcon shoes do the job of helping to keep me slip-free when I take food back to the serving station that I work at andor haul dishes back to the dishroom (where it can sometimes get slippery despite best intentions). These Falcon tennis shoes stay comfortable for my feet both during my work shift and during the timeframe that I wear them walking to and from work.

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
Courage Under Fire stars Denzel Washington as Lieutenant Colonel Nathaniel Serling, Regina Taylor as Meredith Serling,Meg Ryan as Captain Karen Emma Walden, Lou Diamond Phillips as Staff Sergeant John Monfriez, Matt Damon as Specialist Andrew Ilario, Scott Glenn as Washington Post Reporter Tony Garten (as well as more actors/actresses featured in the film). I admit that it was an easy decision for me to check out the Courage under fire film because of the Magnificent Film that I saw last year that featured Denzel Washington (I went by the recommendation of a female coworker who admires Washington as an actor), and other actors/actresses in the Magnificent film. Nathaniel Serling has a challenging job of making sure to uncover the truth around what happened to Captain Walden while also balancing his family life with his wife Regina Serling who is naturally concerned about him. Andrew Ilario is one of the first men that Serling questions due to the fact that he was there and up close to Walden when certain events happened. Serling has an uncomfortable encounter with Monfriez that has him wondering why he is so defensive about what happened to Walden. Serling is also trying to sort out his own personal feelings around a recent event that happened when he gave out an order to Sergeant Patella (Sean Astin) that went much differently than planned. Nathaniel has to deal with all of this while also making sure to professionally and maturely handle himself around Washington Post Reporter Tony Gartner.

This review is from: The Ghost Writer (Amazon Video)
I unintentionally discovered this the Ghostwriter film at a Family Dollar store near where my husband and I reside but the dvd did not play properly once I got past the movie credits that were Letters to Juliet and Remember Me. As a result, I took a chance and bought this movie via Amazon video yet I am glad to have done so. The positives of the Ghostwriter film; As an aspiring writer it was fascinating to catch a glimpse into how the world of ghostwriting worked when the character of The Ghost (Ewan McGregor) is in talks for his next assignment with former British Prime Minister Adam Peter Bennett Lang (played by Pierce Brosnan). I recognized one of the characters named Rick Ricardelli (Jon Bernthal) who played an agent brokering/negotiating the ghostwriting deal because of his appearance in the 2016 Accountant film. Anyhow, The Ghost character (Ewan McGregor) realizes early on that his ghostwriting gig may end up being more than it initially appears to be when he meets former Prime Minister Adam Peter Bennett Lang, Adam Lang’s wife Ruth Lang (Olivia Williams) and Amelia Bly (Kim Cattrall) a personal assistant of Adam Petter Bennett Lang. A mutual friend of both the former prime minister and his wife died less than three days later and The Ghost (Ewan McGregor) must work under tense conditions to get the memoir completed that he was tasked to do. Of course, there are more plot points as well as actors/actresses involved in a who done it type of film. The caveats; While the film was well-done and a scandalous slant to their personal lives thrown in for realistic measure I was correct in my guess as to who was responsible for the whole debacle. My husband had a different idea on who he thought was responsible for the outcome but he acknowledged that I was correct in my initial who done it assessment but for a different reason than expected. I would have loved for both my husband and I to be surprised by who did it, not just my husband. I also did not like the ending and felt that it could have ended on a more complicated andor open to mystery type of note. Aside from those caveats, this was a brilliant film to watch. It is listed towards the end of the movie that this the Ghostwriter film is based on the book “The Ghost” by Robert Harris.

Price: $2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Zany Rooms, March 20, 2017
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: Four Rooms (Amazon Video)
Four Rooms is a crazy yet watchable film that has the character of a bellhop by the name of Ted (Tim Roth) involved in some risky activities pertaining to his first night on the job. The Four Rooms begins with him attending to the needs of some women who are witches involved in a coven (Madonna as Elspeth,Ione Skye as Eva, Valeria Golino as Atheno,Alicia Witt as Kiva, Sammi Davis as Jezebel,Lilli Taylor as Raven,Amande De Cadenet as Diana. Jennifer Beals, Antonio Banderas, Marisa Tomei, Kathi Griffin, and Quentin Tarantino are some of the other people who feature in different roles within the movie. Events get crazier after Ted’s duties with the coven. The most hectic was probably the scene involving The Misbehavers (Antonio Banderas as the dad/husband, Tamlyn Tomita as the mother/wife, Lana Mckissack as Sarah,Danny Verduzco as Juancho, Salma Hayek, Patricia Vonne). In the misbehaviors scene the dad threatens and pays Ted good money to look after his kids and one can guess how that goes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Compelling Family Movie, March 20, 2017
This review is from: Moneyball (DVD)
I unintentionally came across this Moneyball movie at the Family Dollar store near where my husband and I live. This film stars Brad Pitt (Rusty Ryan in Ocean’s Twelve, The Big Short) as Billy Beane, Jonah Hill as Peter Brand an assistant to Billy Beane (I remember Hill most recently from the War Dogs film and Wolf of Wall Street). I admit that I did not know that Chris Pratt (first Guardians of the Galaxy,upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy 2 film etc)played in the film as a baseball player by the name of Scott Hatteberg until after he is introduced as part of the new team that is being assembled. The character of Billy Beane is also shown juggling his professional life while trying to raise his daughter Casey Beane (played by Kerris Dorsey) who he co-parents with his ex-wife Sharon Beane (Robin Wright who also plays in the House of Cards with Kevin Spacey). Of course, there are more actors/actresses who feature in the film and the following are some of the bonus features of the dvd; Blooper-Brad Loses It, Deleted Scenes, Billy Bean Re-Inventing the Game, Moneyball Playing the Game. The end of the film lists that Billy Beane turned down the Red Sox Offer of $12,500,00 and chose to stay in Oakland California. Some of the credits list that Bennet Miller directed the film, Brad Pitt produced Moneyball, and this film is based on the book by Michael Lewis. I am thrilled to say that this is another film that my husband sat with me to watch and also liked.

5.0 out of 5 starsMore Than Just An Art Recovery Expedition, March 20, 2017
This review is from: The Monuments Men (DVD)
This film The Monuments Men features an all star cast of people and even on the front of the dvd cover itself such as; George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville, and Cate Blanchett. All of the men and the woman play roles in having to recapture art that had been stolen by some of the Nazi soldiers in World War II. The movie also shares some of the hardships that they had to endure on their way to working to triumph over regaining the lost art. Some of the special features of the film; George Clooney’s Mission and Marshalling the Troops. The film carefully illustrates that one reason why the men were able to put up a good fight in spotting the art had to do with some of the men having extensive expertise in the field of art related to the art they were tasked to recover. This was one of the films that my husband watched and enjoyed with me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Author Mindset Guide, March 21, 2017
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
I start this review by making it clear that I am reviewing Creative Visualization by Nina Amir as an amateur reviewer who has a passion for writing. I found out about this book after I had seen it featured in a Writer’s Digest magazine article. Some of the following fun tidbits included in this book;Creating a writing schedule to stick to through Monday to Sunday with included time log with an accompanying exercise for focusing on the time blog to write (pages 56-57), a goal template sheet to use for writing objectives (pages 91-94) etc. Last, but not least, there are affirmations for a writer to encourage themselves such as: I’m a positive, joyous, and passionate person. I know I am good enough, have enough, and am enough to succeed. (pages 198-199). Of course, there is so much more in this book. I admit that for my dream and intent to be a writer also has to do with spiritual reasons. For instance, I notice that the more I write regardless of any positive andor challenging attention/judgement that I face the more I am able to be more in touch with both my rational thoughts as well as my intuition. Additionally, I have noticed that many of my dreams have taken on an increased spiritual andor mystical qualities the more that I write. I am blessed to have a job that allows me to take time off for spring break this week. As a result, this is going to give me an important headstart on reflecting on my writing goals for the rest of my current lifetime.

Some of the well-known stories in this exalting kindlebook; Walt Disney, J.K. Rowling, Emily Blunt, Alan Rickman. There is also a happy outcome story in this kindlebook of a woman named Inas Khammi who immigrated from Iraq to San Diego, California. Her family was part of a religious minority group (listed as Chaldean Catholic) that was listed to have been heavily persecuted before fleeing for the U.S. She was given 345 dollars for her first eight months in the U.S. but she was determined to be more self-reliant. Eventually, a caseworker helped her with getting connected to another counselor who helped her with starting a childcare business. Eventually, she succeeded in making $6,000 a month. There was also a motivational example of the writer in the kindlebook who had to persist rejection from multiple places for nearly 10 years before their work was accepted for publication. This inspired me to make sure to create and finish a story as a writer that I would be willing to submit for at least 9-10 years or longer if necessary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Encouraging For Various Goals, March 20, 2017
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This audiobook from audible of Novice to Expert: 6 Steps to Learn Anything, Increase Your Knowledge, and Master New Skills by S.J. Scott,Greg Zarcone, and Oldtown Publishing packed an abundance of informative content in the span of just three hours and two minutes. I confess that I actually know and I’m very aware (both logically and intuitively) what I want out of my life in various areas. As a result, I am aware that my passion of writing is going to indirectly help in these various areas. However, I am still elated to have come across getting both the kindlebook and audible version of Novice to Expert: 6 Steps to Learn Anything, Increase Your Knowledge, and Master New Skills because of the various resources mentioned. I know that in addition to knowing what I want that I must knock andor go through the right/appropriate doors (metaphorically speaking)and this audible/audiobook gives me an outside the box way of doing so. There are details involved in uncovering the best classes and free resources to uncover in this goal (for example Lynda.com and massive open online courses for the classes, podcasts, joining groups related to the goal). I admit that the only caveat is making sure to consistently schedule in time for my goal and work it around my job that I am blessed to have. For instance, I did find some writing groups online that are close to where my husband and I currently reside through meetup.com (including even one of my facebook friends that are in one of the meetup groups pertaining to writing), However, I know that it is up to me to creatively find one that fits around my employment schedule andor decide to just join an online writing group. Additionally, my goal and intent to improve my writing is not just about becoming a published author but for other reasons I prefer to avoid disclosing for now but have to do with both practical (i.e. the way I express myself online, writing improvement when I enroll in future online courses etc.)and outside the box reasons. As a result, I understand how important is for me to listen to the audible again within the next 24 hours or less to digest the abundance of resources recommended in this guide. I like that there are even mentorship and coaching type of resources for if a person wants to turn to a mentor andor a type of life coach for advice related to their goal/endeavor.

Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race
Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race
Offered by Audible, Inc. (US)

5.0 out of 5 stars Radiant Audio, March 20, 2017
The audible version of Hidden Figures (showing the images of celebrities Taraji P. Henson,Janelle Monae, Octavia Spencer) caught my attention after I saw it featured online on a website that I was on. I decided to take a chance on it to broaden my mind. I am glad to have taken a chance on the audio despite the not so cheap price. One reason; the narrator shares one of the stories where one of the women admitted to have grown up in Hampton Virginia around successful role models who worked an accomplished living in field of education andor the federal government (NASA, National Advisory for Air Committee, mention of the Langley base in Virginia andor the sciences etc.) . This positively shaped her worldview on what was possible. Many of the women who applied at Langley were mentioned to come from accomplished employment backgrounds in education as well as having mathematical talents. There was mentioned that Langley employed multiple women in the field of computers. One of the women, Dorothy Vaughan is mentioned to have worked as a math teacher in Farmville, Virginia. Dorothy Vaughan’s in- laws were considered part of the financial upper-class in the area and mentioned to own a barbershop, a pool hall, and a service station. Their (Vaughan’s in-laws) activities made headlines at times through such media as what was mentioned in the audible version the Norfolk Journal and Guide. However, Vaughan was mentioned to be a modest person and aimed to carefully balance her family life with her career life. Vaughan’s academic accomplishments resulted in her becoming a valedictorian of her high school and attaining a full ride scholarship to Wilberforce University. The audio discussed that Vaughan performed so well to the point that one of the professors recommended her for a graduate program in Howard University. However, economic conditions after her graduation at Wilberforce University influenced Vaughan to hang up her graduate school dreams and pursue a career in teaching instead. She worked as a waitress at a hotel in Richmond Virginia until 1931 when she eventually moved on to her teaching job in Farmville Virginia. The audio shared that around this time Vaughan attracted the romantic attention of one of the area’s most eligible bachelors in Farmville Virginia. Of course, there are much more informative details in this audio. The Hidden Figures audible version by Margot Lee Shetterly, Robin Miles, and Harper Audio is a worthwhile purchase for people of various backgrounds (racial, socio-economic etc.) because of the theme of achieving success despite coming from a challenging environment/background as well as the abundance of historical information. I admit that I do not discuss my own full/paternal background not out of shame but more out of only knowing/being certain of my late biological mother and some of her background as well as showing some respect for both my adoptive father who is still alive and my late adoptive mother.

I admit that this song I Think We’re Alone Now by Tiffany played in one of my sleeptime dreams less than 18 hours ago. However, I remember also first enjoying this pop song when I was 7 years old (around the time I also got into Heaven On Earth by Belinda Carlisle) and I had even bought a cassette tape of Tiffany’s music around the time I was between 15-17 years old. Anyhow, I like this song I Think We’re Alone Now by Tiffany because of the light-hearted and summer like vibe of this song that is an elegant blend of an 80’s pop/dance mashup.

Doctor Strange (2016) (Plus Bonus Features)
DVD
Price: $19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected Events Leading To Unexpected Discoveries, March 17, 2017
I actually purchased the digital version of Doctor Strange (2016 Bonus Features) and watched this film today with my husband. Fortunately, both of us enjoyed the film and towards the end of the film my husband explained how the infinity stones connect to this film, the Thor films, Guardians of the Galaxy, and some of the other Marvel characters involved (Captain America, Iron Man etc.). Additionally, the character of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) makes an appearance and his brother Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston) is briefly mentioned. There are a multiple number of brilliant plot points and acting sequences in this film to where it is tricky for me to pinpoint the moments that were the most poignant to me. However, what I do feel confident in saying is that the spiritual and emotional connection between Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams) is shown in a powerful manner. Dr. Strange’s life changes dramatically when he seeks help through Karl Modo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton). An unexpected event had caused Strange to seek out assistance and he found out about the “Ancient One” through one of the men that he had turned away in his past (Jonathan Pangborn played by Benjamin Bratt). Modo and the Ancient One eventually help him despite their first impressions of him. Background information on Kaecilius (Mads Mickkelsen) is also mentioned within a few days of Strange meeting both the Ancient One and Modo after the Ancient One admitted that she trained him but he took what she taught him to a different place than she expected. Strange is also introduced to Wong (Benedict Wong) who explains some of the books in a private library that Strange is allowed into. Strange’s initial meeting with Wong is also a little uncomfortable as well, yet Strange eventually builds rapport with Wong and even persuades him to give famous celebrity/musician Beyonce a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beneficial Ted Talk Audiobook, March 17, 2017
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
It was an easy decision for me to purchase the audible version of Ted Talks Storytelling; 23 Storytelling Techniques from the Best Ted Talks by Akash Karia because I had purchased the kindle version of this book on November 6, 2016. Akash Karia explains why making a speech or talk into a storytelling format creates a more complex and stimulating speech. Karia also helpfully explains why conflict can make a story more exhilarating to read andor listen to (he cites the Titanic movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet other actors/actresses etc. as how the conflict made the film more interesting). This was important for me to hear in this audible version because it helped me feel guilt-free about all of the times I have used conflict in my freestyle story writing when I blog (however, due to karmic andor spiritual reasons I strive to change names, locations, andor physical locations due to my increased intuitive/logic awareness that more people than I may have initially realized view my freestyle stories online as each day passes). I even unexpectedly came across an online article less than 18 hours ago that featured an online commenter who had a similar name to one of the characters that I used from an online name generator for one of my recent freestyle stories who had overcame a little challenge to triumph over.

This kindlebook of 3 Juicy Writing Projects To Inspire You For Life by Stella Duncan is perfect to look at for a quick read and some storytelling ideas. I was thrilled to see Stella Duncan’s inclusion of music as one of the ideas because I had already been following my logic and intuition with using music in some of my writings regardless of how I am judged for doing so. What was even eerie was that my husband had told me less than 9 hours ago about spotting an article online related to one of the events that I wrote about in one of my freestyle stories less than 24 hours after I had wrote and showed him the freestyle story.

Climate Change [Explicit]
Price: $9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling To Listen To Whether You Are a Pitbull Fan Or A Newbie To Pitbull’s Music, March 17, 2017
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
Climate Change by Pitbull is perfect if you frequently like to listen to club, dance, andor electronic type music with hints of pop thrown in. Each song on Climate Change is fun to listen to, yet I admit that two of the songs that I greatly enjoy on Climate Change are ones that I also found exciting to listen to when I first heard them (Bad Man feat. Robin Thicke, Joe Perry, and Travis Barker) and Greenlight (feat. Flo Rida and LunchMoney Lewis). However, I would definitely look out for music videos to other songs from the Climate Change collection as well because I feel that beginning Climate Change with We Are Strong (feat. Kiesza), featuring such carefree/light-hearted songs as Educate Ya (feat. Jason Derulo) and ending with the Can’t Have song gives this music collection a valiant feel. I have been purchasing some of Pitbull’s music since the summer of 2011 with his Planet Pit collection. However, newbies to this music may still enjoy this collection if they enjoy pop, dance, andor club tunes. A good way to gauge if you might enjoy this collection is if you listen to and like some of Pitbull’s previous songs such as Timber (feat. Kesha), Hotel Room Service,Enrique Iglesias I Like It song (feat. Pitbull), Give Me Everything (feat. Neyo, Afrojack, Nayer), and Hey Baby Drop It To the Floor (feat. T-Pain).

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mystical and Political Side of Depeche Mode?, March 17, 2017
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: Spirit (MP3 Music)
It is important to keep an open mind when listening to Spirit by Depeche Mode because the music on this album is a different music quality from maybe some of the their love songs that they are known for (Personal Jesus, Just Can’t Get Enough, Strange Love, A Question of Lust, I Feel You, In Your Room, Only When I Lose Myself, Halo etc.). This album is more of a music energy that can be symbolized as their song Heaven (from their 2013 album release) meets Condemnation, Walking In My Shoes andor People Are People. I confess that I enjoy their relationship type songs the most from Spirit (Cover Me, So Much Love, and a machine remix version of So Much Love if you have an Amazon music subscription), yet I would keep an open mind to hearing some of their other songs andor watching music videos that may feature other songs on Spirit.

Marilyn Jacob left her native Australia just one day shy of Valentine’s Day (February 15) with just 100 dollars in her pocket and a head full of Hollywood dreams with a one way ticket to California. Marilyn was able to secure a lot of modeling jobs in her hometown of Perth Australia because she looked like the popular lead singer of the Divinyls  in the music video to the controversial hit song I Touch Myself. It was a rough going 3 months in San Diego as she set about going to modeling jobs. Finally, Marilyn Jacob’s lucky break unexpectedly came when she unexpectedly met a man at a San Diego Community College who looked like one of the singers in the Too Close music video by Next named Theo Mills.  He has been happily married to Nessa Mills for the past 25 years. Nessa looked like one of the dancers from Flo Rida’s Right Round music video.

Nessa and Theo Mills taught different art classes from the San Diego Community college that they both  were instructors at. They were close friends with two adopted sisters named Veronica and Aileen Webb who had been adopted by two former park workers in Canada who were curious to start a new life in California. Veronica resembled Miley Cyrus from the Party in the USA video while Aileen resembled Sam White from the +1 music video by Martin Solveig (feat. Sam White).  Veronica and Aileen Webb were encouraged to start their own public relations agency at the age of 30 and by 35 both women were netting at least 3 million dollars a year in taxes for themselves despite only having associate degrees in history when they started their joint agency. The two sister’s work was attracting the attention of Hollywood types because a multiple number of their advertisements were inspired by the Mad Men television show, but they were able to make them into their own brilliant creations.  Just yesterday, Veronica and Aileen Webb found out that one of their ads was going to be used in an upcoming Hollywood movie. This film actually required a role for a 45 year old woman from Australia due to a joint project that Australia and Hollywood were working on. Where Marilyn Jacob came in was the fact that Theo Mills shared that he and his wife Nessa were approached by the sisters if they knew of someone for the role. Marilyn Jacob had just completed an online bachelor’s degree in California that she started in Australia just last month and she was inquiring about opportunities to get drawn by an artist at the colleges for money when Theo overheard Marilyn. Marilyn mentioned to him about her past success as a personal trainer as a side gig to her modeling that helped at least seven women lose major weight and regain their thinner figures. He was understandably unsure until his wife Nessa, who taught marketing online in the summers, was impressed by Marilyn Jacob’s online marketing degree that she started 7 years ago with a 3.9 grade point average while juggling a full time job and living in two different places (Australia and then California). The month of June was approaching and Nessa whispered to her husband Theo to at least give Marilyn Jacobs a temporary chance to work in the ad campaign as a model (that was being spearheaded by the Webb sisters) for at least the month of June and July.

End time

Aisha Thomas is relaxing by the beach with her amazing husband  Elliott Thomas.  He actually reminds her of the song Halo by Beyonce when it comes to their marriage. They have won a relaxing trip to Walt Disneyland complete with paid lodging in a storytelling contest that Aisha entered. Aisha is relaxing next to her husband Elliott as she looks at inspiring stories online of Giada De Laurentis in Pop Sugar, Julia Louis Dreyfus, and a list of successful female chefs. Aisha realizes that many of these women tapped into living a life in alignment with their divine live purpose even without them realizing it.

Aisha notices that the song Dreams by Van Halen plays in what appears to be a pop up mobile home right on the beach just a few yards from her. She sees a version of herself serving food out of this mobile home type trailer and is being visited by someone dressed in a frog/toad prince costume. Aisha figures out that this food is some specialty she is making (such as Subway specializing in sandwiches, i.e. Mcdonalds specializing in burgers etc.). However, before Aisha could figure out the food she is serving as a small business owner she is gently woken up by one of her husband’s loving kisses.

More From Pitch Perfect
More From Pitch Perfect
Price: $7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great If You Like a Diverse Range of Pop Music, March 11, 2017
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
The More From Pitch Perfect (original motion picture soundtrack ) has a strong collection of upbeat and spirited hits. I was already previously familiar with the cheerful tune Cups (Pitch Perfect’s When I’m Gone) by Anna Kendrick (from the summer of 2013) and the ebullient Keep Your Head Up by Andy Grammer. However, it is also great to see an interesting mix of songs from various artists on this collection (Martin Solveig, Nicki Minaj, Outfit etc.).

5.0 out of 5 stars Contemporary Pop?, March 11, 2017
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
I admit that Sheeran’s affiliation with Taylor Swift and an online mention of being connected before to Ellie Goulding indirectly influenced me to give this collection a chance (due to me enjoying some songs by both women).The Divide Deluxe Music Collection by Ed Sheeran is perfect to get if you enjoy the Shape of You song due to the romantic vibe of the songs on Divide. The only catch is that it would be beneficial to have an eclectic music interest due a multiple number of the songs being a musical genre departure from a tune from one of his previous collections (Sing). For instance, How Would You Feel (Paen), Barcelona, and Supermarket Flowers are some of the multiple well thought out tunes on this collection, just with quieter overtones.

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: Deep South (MP3 Music)
I admit that I already understand that I am probably different from what the intended target audience is for this Deep South music collection by Josh Turner. Yet, for me getting this collection is worth it because of the range of meaningful songs on this collection that I can keep in mind as a writer. For instance, the songs Never Had A Reason and One Like Mine appear to touch on the perspective of a person having an enduring and strong love for someone. All About You reminds me of the Your Man song (each of these songs are original in their own way, what I mean by the similarity is the seeming message of a person romantically in love with someone at least temporarily blocking out a portion of their time to spend with that special someone). Hometown Girl appears to be about wanting a down to earth female that reminds the singer of home in a happy way. Of course, there are also other worthwhile songs on this collection that touch on the varied facets of love and life.

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
As mentioned on some of my past online writings, I utilize Amazon music, Pandora radio, iheartradio, local radio, and various online sources for new and past music. I unintentionally/unexpectedly heard of the song By Your Side by Jonas Blue feat. Raye (Abbey Road live version)just this past Thursday night on my personalized favorites radio station on iheartradio. This song caught my attention right away because of the beautiful vocals and upbeat pop music to go with what appears to be a meaning of communicating how much a person means to you in your life.

This Is Love [feat. Eva Simons]

5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Club Love Song?, March 11, 2017
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
I remember first hearing the song This is Love by Will.i.am feat. Eva Simmons around the spring/summer season of 2012. The music to This is Love has a fun club feel and has the vocals of a woman who is also featured in the entertaining club song Take Over Control by Afrojack. It is an easy choice for me to buy This is Love by Will.i.am feat. Eva Simmons because of the fact that I have previously enjoyed and reviewed the That Power song feat. Justin Bieber on November 26, 2015 on Amazon and the Scream and Shout song feat. Britney Spears (February 3, 2013) on Amazon.

This review is from: Lydia [Explicit] (MP3 Music)
This catchy rock riff Lydia by Highly Suspect grew on me after multiple times of listening to it on the radio (local rock radio station in the Washington D.C. area). The mp3 song version that I am reviewing has an image of what looks to be a military officer being embraced by a female (my husband showed me the shoulderboard clue). Anyhow, I admit that I am still in the process of figuring out the full meaning of this song yet I enjoy this song because of the terrific vocals and quality background music go to with a song that obviously appears to be about some woman who had a significant impact on the meaning of this song.

The Accountant

DVD
Price: $4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars More Than Just His Job Title, March 11, 2017
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: The Accountant (Amazon Video)
I disclose that I decided to take a chance on seeing the Accountant after I noticed it was available through a notification on my Amazon kindle. This Accountant film turned out to be both multi-faceted and much to my surprise showed the humanity of the character of Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck). Obviously, the plot is carefully crafted to show why Wolff is as complex and distant to even other people around him who show friendliness and warmth. Emotional plot sequences are created to illustrate the people and events that shaped the early lives of Christian Wolff and his brother Brax (Jon Bernthal). For instance, there was an incident involving both of Wolff’s parents that influenced the character development of him and his brother throughout their lives. There is also a glimpse on how a character by the name of Francis Silverberg (Jeffrey Tamboor) influences how he knows some of what Christian Wolff knows. Additionally, the characters of Raymond King (J.K. Simmons) and Marybeth Medina (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) are looking into Christian Wolff’s life for certain reasons. However, both the lives of Wolff and Dana Cummings (Anna Kendrick) change when they cross paths with each other (not in the way one would expect). Wolff happens to be very gifted in his accountant job, which helps him get hired by Lamar Blackburn (John Lithgow) for an important project. The Accountant film also shows how Christian Wolff is much more than what he appears to be on the initial surface.

This review is from: Love (MP3 Music)
The Love song by Lana Del Rey appears to touch on the carefree quality of being in love and enjoying the carefree aspects of life. I do also like that the vocals shine through superbly in this song and the music genre of this song is very unique as it sounds like it would go on a vintage pop list.

Gods and Monsters (Widescreen Collector's Edition)
Gods and Monsters (Widescreen Collector’s Edition)
DVD ~ Ian McKellen
Price: $6.02
62 used & new from $1.56

5.0 out of 5 stars Dramatic Film With Poignant Acting, March 11, 2017
I unexpectedly spotted this Gods and Monsters dvd less than a week ago at a Family Dollar store near my apartment. The movie turned out to be more heartstring pulling than I thought yet also a high quality movie. The beginning of the dvd lists that this film is in association with Lions Gate Films, Showtime, BBC, Flashpoint, and is inspired by the novel “Father of Frankenstein” by Christopher Bram. The beginning of the film shows both the character of Clayton Boone (Brendan Fraser) and James Whale (Ian Mckellen) going about their daily routine. Clayton Boone is getting ready to go to work while James Whale is shown going about his house and interacting with his housekeeper Hanna (Lynn Redgrave). Less than a half hour into the film, Whale shows a shocking side to him that even raises the eyebrow of one of the professionals named Edmund Kay (Jack Plotnick) who is visiting to interview him about his work involving Frankenstein. Of course, there are more pivotal plot points in the movie and more actors/actresses that also contribute (such as the scene where one of Boone’s ex girlfriends has him thinking of the direction that his life has taken). The ending took me by surprise, which was one of the few caveats that I had about the film, yet it is just a small caveat because I understand that this film is based on a true story. Some of the dvd bonuses accompanying the dvd version; Director’s commentary, the making of Gods and Monsters, Theatrical Trailer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something For Many People on Now 28, March 11, 2017
I confess that I am previously familiar with this range of tunes across the dance, pop, and rock genres due to the fact that I heard many of them through local radio and television when my husband and I were living in Norfolk, Virginia (through the U.S. Navy). Songs such as Shake It by Metro Station represent the pop/dance genres, In Love With A Girl by Gavin DeGraw represents the pop/rock genre, the Beat It song by Fall Out Boy feat. John Mayer represents the rock genre, Pocketful of Sunshine by Natasha Bedingfield represents the pop genre, Lollipop by Lil Wayne feat. Static Major represents the R&B/hip-hop genre, Break the Ice by Britney Spears (dance genre), Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis (pop genre) etc. Now 28 is a fantastic varied artists music collection for eclectic music listeners.

Seeking Heaven: Sound Journeys into the Beyond
Seeking Heaven: Sound Journeys into the Beyond
by Eben Alexander
Edition: Audio CD
Price: $19.99
38 used & new from $10.51

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Collection Regardless of Whether You Intend To Create Heaven on Earth for Yourself, March 5, 2017
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
I must preface this review by making it clear that I am creating this review as a resourceful amateur author/writer who is sharing this Seeking Heaven collection that I bought back in February 2015 from Amazon US. Additionally, at the time of the purchase I did not want to believe that I may have to reincarnate back on earth ever again even with having multiple blessings in my current life such as a loving husband, strong spiritual faith, my basic needs provided for etc. (due to my logic/intuitive awareness that I am always going to be judged in this current lifetime by how smart I’m perceived to be andor my physical attractiveness regardless if I want it this way or not). However, things have positively changed since Feb. 2015 in various areas of my life where I am more accepting of the possibility that I may have to reincarnate back on earth in a future lifetime. As a result, I listen to the three cd collection of Seeking Heaven: Sound Journeys Into the Beyond by Eben Alexander M.D. with Karen Newell as a way to help me decompress and see/experience more through the eyes of my soul/spirit. The good on this cd collection; The sounds on the cd are very calming and there is a good transition at the end of some of the journeys while gently letting the listener know when to wake up. However, the caveat is that the well-intentioned talking throughout the cds could have also been channeled more to remind the listener how long the talks on each of the three cds may last before going in to the journeys involving the background music (in case a person may want to listen to three cds interchangeably before going to sleep more often). For instance, on future cds, cd one could include a talk on track one will be talk for five minutes discussing what the cd is about while the other two tracks will be at least 15 minutes long of the background music, and so forth for the other two cds or whatever number of cds a future collection contains (it doesn’t have to be exactly this way, yet I just wanted to give a gentle suggestion). Aside from that caveat the Seeking Heaven journeys are a worthwhile purchase.

Inferno
Inferno
DVD
Price: $4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars More Novel Than I Expected, March 5, 2017
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: Inferno (Amazon Video)
I confess that I was indirectly influenced to check out the Inferno movie after seeing it recommended to me through an ad on my Amazon kindle less than three months ago. I was initially undecided about seeing the film yet the writer in me reasoned that taking a gamble on buying the film would at least give me some ideas/perspectives for my writing regardless of how the film turned out. I am glad that I went with this feeling because Inferno turned out to be much better than I expected. Some of the following reasons why I am glad that I took a risk in purchasing the Inferno film regardless if it ends up on Amazon Prime or not; Felicity Jones plays the character of Sienna Brooks, a woman who becomes pivotal to the growth of Tom Hanks Robert Langdon character via her actions through the dangerous situations they encounter. Within minutes of the film starting, I immediately also recognized her from the 2016 film Rogue One; A Star Wars Story and I noticed that the assertive spirit that she projected in the Star Wars film is definitely also shown in this film. Additionally, I have previously caught Tom Hanks in various films such as Catch Me If You Can, Saving Mr. Banks, and Captain Phillips. In each of those three films mentioned, Hanks had projected characters that think outside the box based on the situations that they were in. In Inferno, Tom Hanks was also given a character that had to successfully think outside the box at the expense of the lives of him and the Brooks character being in danger. I normally lean more towards heaven themed films when watching supernatural/spiritual films, yet seeing a film made more towards the dark side (there are references made to Dante’s Inferno, Dante’s death mask etc.) unexpectedly helped me understand as a writer the value of facing/dealing with the shadowy sides of life. For instance, both Tom Hanks and Felicity Jones are forced into roles where they are forced to recount to each other the grim/dangerous situations that they have faced as they find certain clues to a virus/plague that may hit. Then one of the characters is faced with a surprising plot point checkered by adversity that leads to a positive development in their personal life and professional life. I just wish that the ending had a less up in the air type of quality.

The Magic Path of Intuition
The Magic Path of Intuition
Price: $8.69

5.0 out of 5 stars At First, March 5, 2017
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This kindlebook of The Magic Path of Intuition by Florence Scovel Shinn and Louise Hay caught my attention due to my increased focus on strengthening/increasing my intuition. Additionally, I am fortunate to have purchased the Game of Life kindlebook for just 99 cents yet I wanted to look at intuition kindlebook as a primer before taking in the Game of Life kindlebook. Anyhow, in the Magic Path of Intuition, affirmations are provided for increasing your faith and accessing the power within yourself (I am also understanding as increasing your self-belief). I admit that her take on lining up your dreams in accordance with your divine plan helped remind me/helped me understand even further why sometimes things turning out differently than expected in certain situations can often yield greater blessings/good luck/good fortune. I admit that I respectfully disagree with the author’s take on why a person catches a cold because it could also sometimes be that the person needs to relax andor rest more and the body could just be sending the cold as a way to force the person to allow themselves to rest more guilt-free. However, I did like the author’s example about what one of the women she knew did when she wanted to recoup thirty thousand dollars. This kindlebook was a little different from what I expected in the area of intuition, yet this kindlebook helped lead me to some information that I was looking for on intuition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Innovative Kindlebook, March 5, 2017
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This kindlebook of Steal Like An Artist; 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative by Austin Kleon is a mentor type of guide in written form. However, despite the title, the author carefully explains the difference between what he means by the title in order to stay plagiarism-free. Good advice such as going to the library (fortunately there are multiple libraries in the area I reside), starting a logbook, choosing what to leave out, keeping your day job, keeping a praise file, the benefits and freedom in obscurity, and more are mentioned. Kleon also helpfully gives an explanation for why you want to encourage the writer in you to flourish/develop with little concern as to the outcome of your work andor how you are publicly judged (in his validation is for parking section). From my perspective, this kindlebook is also extremely helpful because sometimes there is going to be other people with the same first name as you andor interests who also write online. However, the way you gather ideas, what you like and dislike, your personality/temperament, how you glean inspiration as a writer etc. is going to differ from even another person who shares your first name, has similar interests etc. A kindlebook such as Steal Like An Artist; 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative by Austin Kleon comes in to fill the need for resource inspiration ideas.

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
I admit that I discovered this dazzling music collaboration of C’mon (Catch ‘Em by Surprise) by Tiesto vs. Diplo feat. Busta Rhymes online as a recommended video to me through youtube. I decided to take a chance on this song of Tiesto and Diplo collaborating with musician Busta Rhymes due to enjoying and being previously familiar with some of Tiesto’s other music collections/songs (A Town Called Paradise, Club Life Vol. 4 New York City, In Search of Sunrise 5 Los Angeles, 643 Love’s On Fire Song feat. Suzanne Palmer) and previously enjoying the Be Right There song by Diplo & Sleepy Tom in 2015 (I believe is a music nod to Don’t Walk Away by Jade). Anyhow, the high energy beat and the strong vocals by Busta Rhymes ,with the music of Tiesto and Diplo, make it a catchy dance/trance tune that seems to be an amusing song about showing others that you are more than you may appear through ways that are unexpected.

College Park Diner
9206 Baltimore Ave
College Park, MD 20740
My husband and I stopped by College Park Diner in College Park Maryland just yesterday.  My husband chose the sweet tea with country fried steak eggs and enjoyed his meal. I selected a sprite drink with a large omelet that had various toppings such as cheddar cheese, bacon, eggs, various other toppings etc. with home fries, toast, and some jelly. My order came pretty quick (around 11 minutes) and still came out tasty and my husband’s order came out shortly after. The meal was affordable as I only paid $25.55 after taxes for both of the meals of my husband and I.
