Undo It by Dean Ornish-My Biggest Takeaways + a Mixtape

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST HERE.. In this episode, I discuss my biggest takeaways from Dean Ornish's book 'Undo It.'     Most days, I practice a vegan diet.   Other elements in my diet include fasting and oil, gluten-free foods.    Why?   I find this combination keeps me slim and full of energy.   Eating is a relaxing time for me; it happens at night, six hours before bedtime.   If I did it any earlier, it would slow me down from running errands.   To keep hydrated, I consume only water throughout the day.    I was encouraged to read this book because Dr. Ornish promotes a vegan diet.   But there's more.   He and his wife Anne also advocate a longevity lifestyle by loving more, stressing less, and moving more.  One of my big takeaways(I discuss more in this episode)from the book contends eating mindfully and not watching TV.   How it can rob one of the pleasures of tasting the food and knowing when you are full.   I suffer from this.   I love watching TV and having dinner si

The Man in Black Vs. Johnny Silverhand and Friends-Action Figure Photography

In my latest set of action figure pictures, I have the 'Man in Black' played by Matthew McConaughey from the 2017 Dark Tower movie, facing off against Johnny Silverhand played by Keanu Reeves from 2020's Cyberpunk 2077 game.   Johnny is accompanied by Psycho and Tiny Tina from the Borderlands series of video games.   Finally, I have  Star Trek Next Generation's Jordi Laforge as a blue alien.    Most figures are from Mcfarlane Toys, exceptions being the Man in Black(Diamond Select) and Jordi(Playmates).   The diorama is from Extreme Sets wave 2 Control Center, which is inspired by 1980s Transformers cartoons. This picture with the broken glass, comic book style, panel is my favorite!   It adds another level of excitement to the photo. I used an Apple Pencil, Ipad Mini, Canon G5X, and the Procreate app to put these together.   I also used elements and filters at Canva.com to spruce up a pic or two.    I often have these types of confrontation or surprised themed shoots wh

Gears 5, Alan Wake, Quantum Break, Alien Isolation. What I'm playing right not on Xbox Game Pass.

YouTube version. These titles are games I recently finished or played on Xbox Gamepass.     Gears 5.    In the 2nd half of 2020, I downloaded and played this latest Gears game months after its release. Having played Gears 1-3, I enjoyed the visceral feel those games provided. The gunplay, the exploding enemies, it's satisfying. Give me great alien, sci-fi-action, and I'm in.      Destiny 2 became available in September 2020, and I started pouring hours into that game, putting Gears 5 down for a while. I never played Destiny but noticed my younger brother playing the first iteration back in 2014. Early last year, I had completed the Halo Master Chief Collection and wanted more Bungie goodness. After finishing a campaign or two in the looter shooter, I noticed that the game never ends, and I wanted to play a story from start to finish. Gears 5 was cinematic and, at times, intense. The first playthrough was challenging; the second was a great time. Jack's(your companion drone)

Three, Great Horror Comics you can Read Right Now!

YouTube Video. At the beginning of 2021, I did a Google search for the best comics of 2020.   Several websites had similar titles ranked, and Immortal Hulk, Gideon Falls, Ice Cream Man were three choices. There's plenty more I will be showcasing on this blog, these being the first three titles. These were all thankfully available in some form on Comixology Unlimited.  For $6 per month, the various titles I can read across several publishers are fantastic.   I also enjoy when a comic property has an upcoming movie or TV show, Comixology makes those original stories available on Unlimited. The only graphic novel on this list currently available through Comixology was Immortal Hulk.  Gideon Falls and Ice Cream Man were their single, first issues. Here are my impressions of these three titles; there will be spoilers. Marvel Comics Immortal Hulk Volume One.   I've never read the Hulk comic through this lens.  Bruce Banner is killed multiple times throughout this book, but the Hulk d
