4.0 out of 5 stars Truth is scarier than fiction, October 30, 2008
This review is from: Aftermath: Population Zero (DVD)
These days, with so many people on the planet, there have been many a day when I thought that there were simply too many of us, and how grand it would be if a good many simply disappeared into thin air. However, after viewing National Geographic's "Aftermath - Population Zero", I realized just how devastating, and deadly, matters would quickly turn out there should the on-going maintenance of key places on the planet cease even a short period of time.

Intentionally or not, humans have set-up shop here on this planet in such a way that should a large proportion of us suddenly disappear due to some unforeseen event the demise of the remaining survivors would be sudden and swift.

Once this dvd starts it will have your attention and you will learn a great deal about things that you had not even considered before. Unless you're one of those who believes that ignorance is bliss, the small price you pay for owning this dvd is worth the knowledge and insight it offers in return.

4.0 out of 5 stars The quest for the perfect tarot deck continues, March 23, 2008
This review is from: The Quest Tarot (Paperback)
My only concern before purchasing these cards was how they would feel in my hands. As a collector of a number of decks, I've discovered that there are very few decks that can be considered the perfect fit. Surprisingly, this deck was not only the right size I was looking for but the cards are made of a material that is not only flexible but will withstand much use, this is clear. In fact, these cards do indeed offer everything they say they do.

However.. I was not pleased with the court cards at all. Though they carry SOME of the familiar characteristics of the original deck's people, they are for the most part NOT the same at all. For starters, all the court cards have been renamed, and although this itself is not difficult to learn, for some reason the relative position of page to knight has been switched, as well. I don't understand why this added confusion was necessary. The real problem for me lies in the fact that the images for each court card are so unclear as to make it hard to disguish one court card from another when working with them in less than brightly lit areas. Certainly, when studying each one up close one can see a great deal of work and detail put into each one, yet none of this is of any use to the reader if they can't at a glance know which card they've just turned over. For someone just starting out who isn't in the habit of using their intuitive sense to interpret each card as its turned over, this may not be a problem at all, but for someone who's been working with the cards a very long time, and relies on quick intuitive insights when interpreting, the court card images are simply too dark and diminutive, and fail to stand apart from the other court cards as they do in other decks.

Overall, I DID like the deck. It does have many positives--it is clearly very beautiful--but it will never constitute as one of my favorite decks for the reasons mentioned above.
