The Criterion Reviews: “Shoah” (1985) 

The Criterion Reviews: “Shoah” (1985) 

When I decided to start reviewing Criterion Collection films, I knew some of them were going to be extremely difficult to get through. That was proven true with my very first Criterion review of “Night and Fog” a few months ago. But never in my mind did I ever think I would come across a film that would be difficult to even review much less watch and of course I chose one such film as the one to watch and look…

Yoga Themes: The Root Chakra

Yoga Themes: The Root Chakra

“There is deep wisdom within our very flesh, if we can only come to our senses and feel it.”  ~Elizabeth A.

We feel as if the world is coming apart at the seams, disconnected, afraid, and unfocused and we need to find our footing and…

Song Lyrics: “We Are” by One OK Rock

Song Lyrics: “We Are” by One OK Rock

The first Song Lyrics entry of the year comes at a time when we need it most.

Review: “Doctor Who: The Diary of River Song” Series 2

Review: “Doctor Who: The Diary of River Song” Series 2

We begin our 2017 Doctor Who Big Finish reviews with the second set of adventures involving our favorite time-travelling archaeologist River Song. Though this is technically a 2016 release, the physical CD sets are yet to be released due to a production error so I’m counting this as a 2017 release. “The Diary of River Song” Series 2 is one that I’ve been intensely curious about the more and more I heard about it. If you’ll recall way back in…
