Inception will twist your mind, in the most delcious way... I am almost embarrassed to admit that I left the moive theare liteally looking over my shoulder and wondering if I was in a dream, and then if it were mine or someone elses. Inception is a thriller, but with... Continue reading

I loved the book In fact, I loved the book so much that when this movie came out I organized my whole day around seeing it! However, I was disappointed. It's not that Julia Robert's does not have a mega-watt smile, she does. However, nothing could lift the incredible boredom... Continue reading

Angelina Jolie, as Evelyn Salt, is every man and every woman's secret dream (come on admit it!), a super-sexy-svelte-siren who is also James Bond. I dare you to not be engrossed in this picture, not because of the story, what was the plot again... but rather because of Jolie's exquisite... Continue reading

For our 'girls day out' my friend and I decided to visit Ocean Grove. Ocean Grove is a gorgeous, quaint, town on the Jersey Shore. From the minute we arrived we were captivated by the plethora of boutique type stores, as well as the open air dining choices. We worked... Continue reading

I found Lori Gottlieb's book, Marry Him, when scanning the new arrival shelf at the local library. The jacket was attractive, the title was odd and I added it to a collection of other books selected for further perusal. I have to admit being a little halfhearted about the subject...

Sex and the City worked because it combined, Carrie Bradshaw's angst's and insights, with the milestones and merits of living in New York City. Although we knew things were over the top, we enjoyed living vicariously through Carrie and her bosom buddies, as they navigated the often gritty issues of... Continue reading

Directed by Billy Wilder, The Apartment is a social moral comedy set in 1959. Although there is a decided lack of character development, the story is relatively complex, engaging the viewer on many levels with plots and twists between the central characters. In 1960, The Apartment garnered an Oscar for... Continue reading

The 1960’s were a time of national unrest in the United States. With the protests against the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights Movement citizens were challenging traditional values and the power and authority of their Government. It is in this cultural milieu that the movie Dr. Strangelove was conceived.... Continue reading

When I was a little girl my parents told me I was going to live forever. They weren't lying to me or telling me a fairy story. In fact they believed they were telling me the "Truth." My parents were Jehovah's Witnesses and they raised me to be a Jehovah's... Continue reading

Wow, I just discovered Linda Woods! Not only is this art great, AND you are a member of my favorite place the Omega Institute, BUT you are still human, because you forgot the "A" from your name! There is hope for me yet. Loved this article about Copy Cat Bitches... in answer to some comments above, copying is when your totally take and rip off someone else's art, inspiring is when you perhaps work in the same genre and draw from the "style" of the art.

I think my first feeling after reading just a few pages of this book was envy. Envy that I had not created this witty, acerbic, insightful, and naughty book. This was quickly followed by utter relief and awe that someone as brilliant and talented as Rebecca Miller created this amazing... Continue reading

I like a man who can keep me up all night. David Baldacci used to do that. When I first discovered Baldacci I feel in love with his mind. His labyrinthine plots, and end of book surprises always left me guessing as well as gasping for more. It was a... Continue reading

I know it's shallow, but I just didn't know if I could sit through a 70's movie complete with drab colors, weird wardrobe, and outdated social concepts. My fears were completely unfounded. What a film! My heart ached for Donny Baker's character, played magnificently by Edward Albert, to find the... Continue reading

Letters to Juliet did not disappoint. In fact, that's not fair. Not only did it not disappoint, it was a beautiful, magical, inspiring and optimistic romance movie that gave us what we wanted most, belief in love that, once ignited, never ends. Continue reading

I am so stressed about us not having a big month in sales. I don't want to seem "difficult" but frankly the only "big month” I can see myself having is an increase in size. Of course the fact that I cannot afford to buy food, because we have no... Continue reading

My family was quite into organized religion although I always felt they were closet hippies. Trips to homeopaths, cutting edge acupuncturists, alternative medicine, an attempt at a private school, and my mom's penchant to read Russian literature probably inspired that feeble hope. Although, being brought up with their beliefs provided... Continue reading
