Movie Review: The “Pirates of the Caribbean” Films

Movie Review: The “Pirates of the Caribbean” Films

There are many film franchises that mean a lot to me personally. The Marvel films, the Robert Langdon films, the Harry Potter films, Monty Python, etc. But there aren’t many I have as much fond memories of and have had as much swashbuckling fun with as the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise. Starting back in 2003 with a gamble based on a Disney theme park ride, the ‘Pirates’ films have since swung in to history with many multi-million dollar films,…

The Year of the Doctor: The Fifth Doctor

The Year of the Doctor: The Fifth Doctor

Moving on from the titular Fourth Doctor and 70’s Doctor Who last month, we move in to the 80’s and perhaps a more colorful era of Doctor Who but with considerable more drama and intrigue for all involved especially as we get farther and farther along. Thus we come to the man with the celery stalk and a Doctor that has a very important place in my hearts, the Fifth Doctor (Peter Davison). THE FIFTH DOCTOR (PLAYED BY PETER MALCOLM GORDON…

This is mainly because there haven’t been any real songs that have really struck a chord with me this year so far or had quite as much meaning. This year has also been a bit more of a struggle externally and internally with other focuses and commitments for topics and entries I wanted to…

Top 15 Best “Last Week Tonight” Moments

Top 15 Best “Last Week Tonight” Moments

One of the best shows to come out of the past few years has been HBO’s ‘Last Week Tonight with John Oliver’. A late night talk show and satire program that covers the latest issues and important events of the day a la ‘The Daily Show’, it has been a source of absolute joy and positive vibes for me in the past year or so particularly with all of the political stress, drama, and current situation we are living in….

Mudras and Regen Yoga

Mudras and Regen Yoga

Yoga as a whole encourages exploration. We as yogis are constantly seeking new forms, tools, variations, and ways to improve our practices and by extension ourselves inwardly and outwardly. One of the strongest and yet most often overlooked items in a yogi’s arsenal is the mudra. A mudra is a simple symbolic or ritual gesture during a yoga or meditation practice that is meant to invoke something in particular that we are looking for. Having a strong place in Hinduism and…
