The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield. My Biggest Takeaways.

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST HERE: YouTube version: Reading and enjoying Eckhart Tolle’s ‘Power of Now’ inspired me to Google ‘best spiritual books.’ The Celestine Prophecy was one of those books. Siddartha, my last ‘biggest takeaways’ entry, was one as well.     The Celestine Prophecy plays out like a movie when listening to the audiobook version. Some of the dialogue intrigued me and moved me to highlight a particular text in the Kindle version of the book. The question which fascinates me, ‘why do we do what we do’ is brought up multiple times in this novel. I figure if I can find out why I do what I do, I can be a better, more understanding, and forgiving version of myself. Here’s a description of what this book is about   Here are some of my biggest takeaways. Do any of these passages resonate with you? Please let me know.

Thoughts?   Comments?   Do so below. YouTube Version Find the written version of Terminator Dark Fate here. Doctor Sleep SPOILER REVIEW and Thoughts Late 2018, director Mike Flanagan produced Haunting of Hill House on Netflix.   Very enjoyable, Doctor Sleep was his follow up.   After watching this movie, I couldn't help but sense that this seemed better suited for streaming.  The vibe and cinematography of Hill House were felt all over Doctor Sleep.  Except this production was a lot bloodier. What I didn't like: Not very scary.   Also, was Abra overpowered?    In the first, and halfway through the second act, Rose the Hat and her crew felt like a threat.  The scene when Bradley(Jacob Tremblay)is

Terminator: Dark Fate REVIEW-SPOILERS

Terminator: Dark Fate is an intense action thriller.   But if you've seen one Terminator movie you've seen them all.   The outliers in this franchise being the first Terminator film having a horror vibe and Terminator Salvation, which reverses the roles(for a time)between the machine(played by Sam Worthington)and the human resistance(led by John Connor).  Dark Fate includes ideas from past films.   Such as:  -Rev-9(the main antagonist)having a liquid form, and the ability to make spears from his body.      -Grace(played by Mackenzie Davis)is an augmented human; I felt was inspired by the human-Terminator combo from Salvation.     -Arnold being the sympathetic figure coming to the aid of the resistance.    -Strong female roles played by Linda Hamilton and actress Natalia Reyes. Sarah Connor does elevate the film.   The character's portrayal(I feel)is appropriate to how she'd react living through the experiences of the first two films as Dark Fate takes

El Camino Spoiler Review + Artwork

Count me in as a fan of Breaking Bad.   I enjoyed the series immensely and was excited to revisit this world.   But what we get with the here, El Camino is fun but not necessary.    El Camino takes place right after the series finale.    It's great seeing all the cameos of returning characters such as Mike, Badger, Skinny, Jane, and Walter White.   The late Mr. Robert Forster as Ed, the fixer, and his interactions with Jesse were a standout for me.   Others were with Todd (played by Jesse Plemmons), who is weird and creepy in his unique way.    There were times I thought he was going to rape Jesse.    The main antagonist Neil, played by Scott Macarthur, is great at being a dick.    I first saw him in HBO's Righteous Gemstones, where he was an entertaining villain. Aaron Paul, as Mr. Pinkman, does a great job here relaying the trauma he's dealt with over the last five seasons of the show.   Having lost multiple girlfriends, his abduction and being held prisoner breaks h

Gemini Man Quick Review plus ARTWORk-SPOILERS

Gemini  man is a fun action thriller.  Director Ang Lee shot this film at 120 frames per second.   The screening I would come to see was in 60 frames per second in IMAX 3D, and It looks incredible.    The backgrounds look painted.    Will Smith's younger version of himself did not look out of place amongst the other actors.    The visuals were sharp and smooth at the same time.    During the action scenes, the blending of CGI and reality was seamless.    This film has some impressive action scenes.   The stand out being the motorcycle sequence This isn't a story we haven't seen before.   In a nutshell, a soldier serves his country dutifully for years, now wants to retire, but knows too much and must be erased.   In Gemini Man, this basic premise was handled well.  A few spoiler notes; I don't disagree with Clive Owen's reasoning for creating clones, but couldn't he of used robots instead?   Also, I liked that Will Smith's Henry(who is presented as a no-

Joker Movie REView-SPOILERS

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST HERE: On this episode Jason G. and I review Todd Phillips Joker.   Based on the famous DC comics villain from Batman lore.   We both very much enjoyed this film but both felt it wasn't perfect.   Joaquin Phoenix's performance in the film is incredible and undeniable for sure.    Have you seen Joker?   Please post your thoughts, comments, feedback down below. I was anticipating this movie.   In my excitement, I drew my version of Phoenix's character here. We shot this right after the review.    Geez, we look tired.    Looking forward to the next movie night with Jason G.

Dancing Outside. Summer 2019.

I've watched dancehall dancers for years. They still inspire me while I attempt to copy their dance moves.   Original Version. But watching myself dance, the truth is I don't move like the dancers that I want to emulate.    And I'm slowly coming to accept that. All due respect to the creators of the dances, this is my expression, my version, my body language.   That might rub people the wrong way; I may be doing the dances incorrectly, I'm sorry.    But I don't apologize for being me or my dance voice. I enjoy dancing to dancehall.    It's one of my joys in life. Youtube Version(different music)

Ad Astra, Dark Crystal AOR REVIEWS, Invisalign and More.

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST HERE. On this episode I review Ad Astra, Brad Pitt's latest film.    I also review Netflix's fantasy series Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.    There are spoilers for both, please be forewarned.    Correcting my teeth.   It's a journey I've recently begun by signing up for Invisalign.    I breakdown what the beginning of this journey has felt like and why I'm doing this. Finally, writer Mark Waid and artist Peter Krause put together one awesome comic series called Irredeemable.   There were two quotes in the run that really resonated with me and I share that here.

Ad Astra Movie Review (SPOILERS)

Ad Astra is a space drama which I enjoyed but wouldn’t sit through again.   What I liked; the moon pirates.   Can we get a full feature on that?   Also, the 70’s-80’s sci-fi vibe when Roy Mcbride(Pitt)was on Mars.  Especially when he was in the ‘comfort room.’   The psych evaluation tests which determine if one is fit to serve.   The soundtrack was great as well.  It gave weight to awe-inspiring visuals while in space or during a ship's launch.    Finally, the father-son themes and Pitt not choosing to go down his father's path, which seemed to be the case for a while in the story. However, I prefer Interstellar and Gravity to Ad Astra if we are comparing similar films.   Space madness is introduced in Interstellar, and it is an element in the narrative here.  It seems the longer you are in space you might become crazy.  Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones characters had shades of that, but it didn’t stop them from trying to achieve their respective missions. Overall, the fil

Beginning the Journey of Correcting my Teeth-Invisalign.

September 2019 On September 11, 2019, I began my Invisalign journey. When I was younger, I wasn’t crazy about getting braces.  The dentist had suggested them multiple times.    Most of my life, I’ve been shy when it came to girls/women, and I thought having braces would kill my confidence more so.   My best friend in high school had the metal braces, and I remember him sitting behind me in class breathing funny.  I never found myself attractive to the public, but privately I like the way I look.  Artists and painters brushstrokes are unique.  I consider all of us being the works of a unique illustrator(G-O-D, our sky buddy).  In saying this, having a big nose, going bald in my 20’s, my crooked teeth, I've come to accept.   July 2019 I learned that one’s teeth shift throughout their life, and as I’ve gotten older, it’s affected my dental health.  My biting myself(inside my mouth) happened often and severely.  Grinding my teeth when I slept, didn’t help either.

Jillionaire's Chicken and Beer Party 2019. Brooklyn, NYC

I've been to this party for the last two years, and it's never disappointed. With these recent party videos, I've been trying to be more intentional in capturing friends and familiar faces.  Why? Because of Micro Don's passing.  Here today, gone tomorrow.  We never know how much time we have left on this planet. Events like this make me so happy to be alive. To dance amongst friends have the best of times.  Moments like these are what I feel make life worth living. When it comes to dancing at parties, I admittedly can have an ego.  I want people to follow me, all eyes on me.  When I don't get that I, sometimes, might feel less than.   It's something I'm trying to work through. I wanted to thank and give credit to DJ Fade, Dutty the French, and the gentleman behind the 15th Parish documentary for shooting this event from their point of view.  Max Glazer for a beautiful speech honoring Micro Don's memory and making us dance.  Jillionaire f

Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance REVIEW

I saw the 1982 movie(on Netflix)in preparation for this series and found it lacking, which is weird because the world is so full of substance.    But as this series presents, there was more to be explored. This Netflix exclusive takes place before the movie, but I preferred Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance to the film.   Fleshing out these characters, the unraveling of the story, the history of the world was wonderful.   However, I admit it didn't grab me until the 2nd episode. I was surprised at how many times I got emotional watching this.  Specifically, the parent-child relationships.    Reinforcing the power of the human voice evoking emotion, whether it would be in an animated film like 'Up' or a series made with puppets showcased here. The fantasy world first introduced back in 1982 is more realized in this show.   If you're a fan of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, you won't be disappointed.   One of the locales called 'Stone in the Wood' r


LISTEN TO THE PODCAST HERE Jason G and I saw It Chapter 2.    We both enjoyed it but felt the first film was superior.     Some of Jason's thoughts(THERE ARE SPOILERS BELOW): -He's read the book and said this movie was too faithful to the book, comparing it to the Watchmen film.    This isn't a good thing. -Jason enjoyed the ensemble of the adult Losers' club even saying, if there were an Oscar nomination in this category, this would win. -Stephen King connected universe?    He shares some insights he's learned regarding this story being related to Mr. King's Dark Tower book. Late night movie review   My thoughts: -This film wasn't necessary.    Unless you're a completist and want to discover how the rest of the story plays out. -Is Pennywise and alien?    This wasn't explained well. -The movie does drag at points. We discuss all this and more in this episode.    Please post your comments and feedback below. It was my
