A Meditation on Memory

A Meditation on Memory

Memory is one of the most precious and important things for us as human beings. It is through memory that we can recall what we lost and remember the past so we can take that knowledge in to our present to influence and affect our future. This meditation is meant to tap into our memories, touch on things from time ago, and allow us to flow in warmth and comfort in what has happened before. Find a comfortable position in…

Review: Doctor Who – “The Eighth Doctor: The Time War” Series 1

Review: Doctor Who – “The Eighth Doctor: The Time War” Series 1

The Time War is my favorite part of the Doctor Who mythos by a very large margin. It holds the most mystery, the most potential for amazing story-telling, and probably the most intriguing Doctors of all of his lives in the one who avoided the war as best he could but was forced to fall and the one who participated in the war fully to where he even refused the title ‘Doctor’. We all know the War Doctor, his series,…

Horror Movie Month: “Vampyr” (1932)

Horror Movie Month: “Vampyr” (1932)

“There exist certain beings whose very lives seem bound by invisible chains to the supernatural. They crave solitude. To be alone and dream – their imagination is so developed that their vision reaches beyond that of most men.”  Let’s end our Horror Movie Month with a movie that crosses boundaries in a similar vein as “House” from last year in that it’s a horror movie from the Criterion Collection. We owe so much in terms of horror films to the…

Horror Movie Month: “Hotel Transylvania” (2012)

Horror Movie Month: “Hotel Transylvania” (2012)

Originally, I never had any interest in seeing “Hotel Transylvania” whatsoever. I saw the cast, the premise, it’s low score on Rotten Tomatoes, and…

Horror Movie Month: The Classic Mummy Films (1932-1955)

Horror Movie Month: The Classic Mummy Films (1932-1955)

As we continue Horror Movie Month, we look at a continuation (or rather the distant past) of a series that I’ve already tackled earlier in the year. With the release of the new version of ‘The Mummy’ to critical disappointment and failure and every way, shape, and form, I thought it would be fun to look at the past of the Mummy in Universal form. I recently acquired the Blu-ray set of old Universal Mummy films from the black and…

An Electric Meditation 

An Electric Meditation 

I’ve always had a personal connection to electricity, electric currents, and lightning itself. It’s fascinated me ever since I was a child and I always felt at my best when I was around it especially during a thunder and lightning storm. As I’ve grown up in to an adult, that fascination / attraction has not waned especially as I’ve come to learn more about it. In a way, we as human beings are all electric and we all contain many…
