Book Recommendation: Shambling Towards Hiroshima

Shambling Towards Hiroshima This is probably the most whacked-out book I have ever read.  It is satirical in nature and focuses on WWII, Reptilian Creatures, and Hollywood.  The main character, Syms Thorley, is thrust out of his B Hollywood movie and into a rubber…

Movie/Documentary Recommendation: The Loving Story/Loving

Loving Story The life of Richard and Mildred Loving, both reluctant to be the face of interracial marriage, sort of mirrors how well this movie did in the Box Office.  Let’s just say the gross total doesn’t cover its production costs as of today. …

Documentary Recommendation: Great Human Odyssey

Great Human Odyssey I learned how resilient and strong our Homo sapiens sapiens ancestors were after watching this.  The rough terrain, unrelenting weather, and scarcity of food they endured and survived really make us the smartest bipedal animals in existence.  I watched all the…

Book Recommendation: The Devil’s Guide to Hollywood

The Devil’s Guide to Hollywood Dare I say this recommendation might be reserved for bathroom reading?  I say this because it is written in such a way that it could be read in short spans of time since much of this book is structured…

Book Recommendation: The Dress Lodger

The Dress Lodger It’s been a long time since I was awed at a writer’s technique and word usage.  The sentences seemed to jump off the page for me when I read The Dress Lodger.  They got a lot of distance and hit my…

Book Recommendation: Not Dead & Not For Sale

Not Dead & Not For Sale Most of us know about the passing of STP frontman, Scott Weiland.  It was plastered everywhere and anywhere especially in The United States.  Groupies and fans mourned the loss of a great singer and song writer, but in…

Movie Recommendation: Contagion

Contagion I was away longer than I wanted because the circle thing in the picture below.  It made sure to let me know it had invaded my body and then some.  It knocked me down where I had to rest in bed and basically…

Books Recommendations about Writing

Book Recommendations about Writing      I came across some books when I rearranged my shelves that might help writers improve their writing if you are up for the challenge. It dawned on me how much of this material is common sense and quite simple…

Documentary Recommendations

It’s Time to Get Serious Again!!! You will get a sense of my interests as many of these are the same subject.  While this list doesn’t even scratch the surface, these are the ones that stood the test of time.  My apologies for not…

Movie Recommendations

It’s Time to Laugh!!! Sneakers is a caper movie about five hackers.  It has some slapstick comedy and is well-paced.  My favorite character is the blind soundman played by David Straithairn.  The car scene was priceless.  Robert Redford and Ben Kingsley are good.  Dan…
