A Winter Garden: Five Songs for the Season
A Winter Garden: Five Songs for the Season
Offered by Big_Box_Bargains
Price: $19.96
52 used & new from $0.01

4.0 out of 5 stars Something different for the seasonal music selection, February 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Classic Loreena McKennit sound on seasonal tunes. It's not really anything new but is a nice change for your Christmas collection. For people unfamiliar with her music, she utilizes a lot of eastern instruments so there is a feeling of foreign towns and antiquity to the songs that can either add to the Christmas/Solstice mood or completely throw me out of it depending on my frame of mind.


The Intelligent Body(TM) Feldenkrais Program Volume I & II
The Intelligent Body(TM) Feldenkrais Program Volume I & II

Price: $179.55

4.0 out of 5 stars Rest often, February 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Wildman's voice is just the right combination of soothing and instructive and there are no extraneous annoying noises on these lessons. They run about 50 minutes a disk. My only caveat is that if you have any issues like neck problems or such, be very careful using these at home without also visiting a practitioner: some of the early lessons on the back actually hurt me a little because of poses held for long periods while he talks. Remembering to just rest anytime regardless of what the guy tells you to be doing is important. Otherwise, these are the most comprehensive and clear lessons I've heard so far.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fit is critical, February 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Be careful when buying this for size! I have a 31" waist so I got a large, my sister has a 29" waist and got a medium. The medium fits us both, though a little snuggly and the large was hideous, hanging off me in the bust and shoulders and the most unflattering thing I've ever seen. The medium is pretty good looking though. So fit is crucial for this to look nice on. If you buy a size too big, it's terrible and not worth the money.
For all that, Patty does well made stuff and it's got a good lining, has pads in the bust and is fully finished. The fabric has weight too so it's not paper thin and see-through like so many knits today.

3.0 out of 5 stars For moving EMF fields only., January 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is great for use around the house to test appliances. For 'ghost hunting', it's not so useful. The meter records active changes in electromagnetic fields, not standing electromagnetic fields so it's usually not very useful. We've had better luck, both in the field and in the kitchen testing microwaves, with the silly red and black testers that have the loose probe.


Conair Soothing Sounds & Relaxation Clock Radio

3.0 out of 5 stars Product good, principle didn't work., January 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This works exactly as they say, to a point. I had just moved into a very noisy building and the neighbors, having a different schedule than me, kept me up all night for months. White noise was suggested for an antidote so I could sleep so I got this. It works fine as a clock though the light is quite bright and the noise choices are not bad. My only complaints are that the buttons are are so same-y that you cannot program or change or turn on and off in the dark. Also, the white noise, as it turned out, did not help me at all. having noise near me did not do anything to mask or distract from the noise upstairs and downstairs.
So product fine but for those new to the idea, be aware that noise masking doesn't work for everyone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bulky and stiff., January 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
While these fit per the chart, they fit very bulky and stiffly. This might be fixed after some washing and wearing but I didn't want to commit on the off-chance they stayed stiff and bulky so I returned them.


The Defenders of the Dead (Star Wars: Jedi Apprentice, Book 5)
The Defenders of the Dead (Star Wars: Jedi Apprentice, Book 5)
by Jude Watson
Edition: Paperback
55 used & new from $0.01

3.0 out of 5 stars Short, good but somewhat incomplete., January 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Written for kids, this is a decent read for adults interested in the back-universe of the Star Wars series but be warned it is by no means a complete story here. It reads like a segment of an ongoing series (which it is) and the tale told here is barely, but just, self-contained so while the narrative completes, any emotional tie-up is left for another book. I was sort of annoyed by that but kids won't even notice I think.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good option., January 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Upbeat without being cloying, this calendar is a good page-a-day. My only complaint is that there isn't a lot of room on the pages to write notes which is how I use these. They stay where I see them every morning before work and I write important notes on the pages. Otherwise, no complaints and definitely an improvement over interesting but useless knowledge or saccharine images of puppies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well-conducted short exercises., January 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very good short exercises that don't require hours of commitment. The instructor has a good calming voice without being so slow it puts you to sleep. A great easy way to get into Feldenkrais if you were wondering what it's all about and have upper body issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars From an adult perspective, these cartoons are way better than the movies. An all-time favorite show., December 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For all the adults who thought the Madagascar films were meh but loved the psychotic penguins, it's well worth checking out the cartoon series starring only the squad. Unlike the movies, the characters are fleshed out and each given a more rounded character so you can tell them apart. Also, the voice talent on the cartoon show is, in my opinion, far superior to the film work (no offense meant). Jeff Bennet, who voices a brainier version of Kowalsky instead of a commando that sounds like Clint Eastwood, is one of the funniest men working in voice right now and the rest of the cast meets him on par. The scripts are always amusing, sometimes bizarre and sometimes outright hilarious. From an adult viewpoint. There is far more in these to entertain adults than in the movies. Also, the episodes run 11 minutes long each so they're superb for short viewing. I just wish DreamWorks would release entire seasons on disk. The picture and playback on the disk is gorgeous.
