1.0 out of 5 stars Not For Feminists, September 10, 2014
As a feminist, I struggled to get through this book. Mikhail was your typical aggressive, possessive, take charge man. Even dubbing Raven "little one". Blech. The book also needed an editor as it misused tense and third person many times.

I purchased Tarte Flush about ten years ago. I loved the idea behind this, but the execution was poor. The consistency was way too sticky.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun, Even Though It's Info Dumps Galore, July 28, 2014
I do enjoy this show. However, there is one thing about it that drives me nucking futs (see what I did there). In film/tv/writing you're supposed to show, not tell. Many of the episodes have long dialogue-heavy info dumps. Like Freyja's dream of Killian in the pilot which she relayed to Ingrid. But I never actually got to see the dream. Show me the dream, don't tell me about it. And Julia Ormond's forced fake American accent leaves much to be desired. Yet, the show is still great fun! I don't watch a lot of television (other than BBC), because there aren't many shows that I care for. This is one of the only shows currently airing that I watch. Info dumps aside, I love this show! I can't believe that it got cancelled! I hope that the petitions and social media buzz are enough to get the show back on the air for a third season.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything I Was Looking For And Then Some! Deserves 100 Stars!, April 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Revelations Tarot (Cards)
For over 20 years I looked for what would be my ideal tarot deck. After many decks and just as many disappointments, I finally found the Revelations Tarot totally by accident. Yet, it turned out to be a happy accident indeed. Revelations is hands-down my absolute favorite deck.

First things first, this deck definitely feels like it's for advanced tarot readers. Yet, I think that people new to tarot could definitely hone their skills with this deck because the deck itself seems to be very intuitive and if one was to use hers/his intuition he/she could easily perceive the meanings of the cards. I believe that this is exactly what Zach Wong was going for based on interviews that he has done in regards to this deck.

I've used so many decks I can't even remember what some of them were called. However, I often felt that different decks almost took on a life and personality of their own, as well as absorbing lots of my energy as well. Most of the decks had pleasant and positive energy. There were a couple that felt unpleasant, but that's neither here nor there, since I don't use any of those decks anymore anyway. Yet, I bring this up because the vibes that I feel from Revelations are amazing. It's like, honestly, not to be believed how fabulous the vibes from Revelations are. It's like night and day when compared with other decks. I've also never really felt a connection to a tarot deck before. Not so with Revelations. I feel a strong connection to the deck.

The style of the art is unbelievably beautiful, illuminated and vibrant. The cards are so colorful and detailed. The images on the cards are very busy, which I love. I love it when artwork has like a lot going on in it. The style utilized in Revelations is reminiscent of art nouveau stained glass windows. All of the artwork is very flowing and sensual while still being tasteful and not being erotic, raunchy or sexy. The artwork here is just gorgeous. The cards are all double-ended, making interpreting reversals extremely easy as well as versatile since the reversed images use different moods and tones. It really is like having 156 cards in one deck.

The cards themselves are printed on thick card stock. Actually, this deck uses the thickest card stock of any deck that I've ever used. I get the impression that these cards are made to last. The cards are also slightly larger than what I've used in the past. They were a little hard to shuffle and spread at first because of the thickness and the size as well as the cards were kind of slippery at first. Yet, after several readings and breaking them in a little bit (like a new pair of stilettos) they fit me like a glove and became extremely easy to handle. The finish on the cards is perfect, not too matte and not too shiny.

I feel that this deck might also be "safe" for minors to use or to be used in a corporate environment since there aren't any images that are indecent. Actually, even cards that many tarot readers refer to as "dark", "morbid", "scary", "troublesome", or "unpleasant" such as Death, The Tower and The Devil here in Revelations are much more lighthearted in appearance.

On top of everything else, these cards are extremely accurate. Every reading that I did was spot-on. This is the most accurate deck that I've ever used.

This deck is everything that I was looking for and then some. I would give this deck 100 stars if I could. I finally found "my deck"! Razzle Dazzle!

3.0 out of 5 stars Guilty Pleasure, March 21, 2014
This review is from: Reign, Season 1 (Amazon Video)
I enjoy this show. It's a guilty pleasure. It's historically inaccurate when it comes to attire and attitudes, but this is historical fiction. It's allowed to reinterpret history in order to tell a story that is compelling and relatable. Bash never existed. I realize that some people might take offense to the inaccuracies, but I say, if the show gets teens interested in history, who cares about the inaccuracies? If you enjoy this show check out other historical fantasy/historical fiction: Black Adder, Black Butler, Black Sails, Danergous Liaisons, Dark Ages, Da Vinci's Demons, Elizabeth, Game of Thrones, Le Chevalier D'Eon, Let Them Eat Cake, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Shakespeare In Love, The Borgias, The Duchess, The Libertine, The Patriot, The Tudors, The White Queen, Valmont, Vikings, etc. Outlander (starts soon on Starz) and Turn (starts soon on AMC).

I loved this title! I especially loved how it was formatted! It looked like an actual print book instead of an eBook. Plus it had cats in it, what's not to love?

I tried all of the techniques in this book for my photography business. None of them worked for me. Maybe they'll work for someone else.

Perhaps I wasn't the intended audience. I found a few other titles specifically for promoting indie books to be much more useful.

1.0 out of 5 stars Could Do With Some Editing, January 11, 2014
This review is from: Decollages (Kindle Edition)
I was excited about this book, but was very disappointed with it. It was in dire need of an editor. The grammar was atrocious. I felt like I was reading broken English that had been dumped into Google translate. I figured that the author was most likely German while I read the book since her English reminded me of e-mails that I have received from the Germans I have worked with. Then I saw that most of the authors other books were in German and I was not at all surprised. I believe that the author needs to hire someone who's native tongue is English to edit this and make it something palpable for an English audience since the way that it is currently written is very ambiguous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Take On The End Of The World, July 5, 2013
This review is about the movie itself, not the DVD. I had high hopes for this film when it was first released, but all of my friends told me that they heard that it was awful, so I did not go see it. Now, I wish I had gone to see it in the theatre. This is now one of my favorite movies of all time, because it is brilliant. It is essentially a buddy / odd couple dramedy set against the end of the world as a compelling backdrop. It is very bitter-sweet. This film takes you through the broad range of the emotional spectrum from enthusiasm, excitement, fear, fun, happiness, joy, love, nostalgia to sadness. The movie starts with Dodge (Steve Carell). His wife leaves him when they find out that the world is going to end, as in an asteroid dubbed 'Matilda' will destroy the Earth in a cataclysmic collision in three weeks time. Dodge is an introspective middle-aged man. While everyone else is just partying and enjoying their final three weeks, Dodge seems to just want to spend his remaining time doing something meaningful and special. He meets his neighbor, Penny (Keira Knightley), who is very outgoing and talkative. Despite their age difference and the vast differences in their personalities, the two strike up an unlikely bond. They escape out of urbania when a riot breaks out and go in search of Dodge's long lost love and Dodge has also promised Penny that he will get her on a plane so that she can spend her final days with her family in England. I do not want to give any spoilers, but the ending is truly delightful.

In a sense, this film kind of fits into the Visionary category, because I came away from this movie with more than just having been entertained and escaped from everyday life. This movie tackled a really huge question... What is the meaning of life. Usually philosophical films that take on that whopper of a question are fairly serious (not counting Monty Python's The Meaning of Life)... And Seeking a Friend For the End of the World breaks the mould by being really funny in a clever, intelligent, ironic, satirical, subtle and witty kind of way. I think this film is very charming.

The difference between this movie and the average Hollywood blockbuster, is that this story actually has heart. At times I laughed hysterically and at others I cried my eyes out. The performances here by both Carell and Knightley are fantastic. Keira Knightley especially shines. The soundtrack is also amazing.

In my personal opinion, Seeking a Friend For the End of the World is lightyears ahead of other end of the world and natural disaster films (because it has heart) like Armageddon, Dante's Peak, Melancholia, The Day After Tomorrow, This is the End, Volcano, 2012, etc. The only end of the world / natural disaster film that even comes close to being on the same level as Seeking a Friend For the End of the World is the Core... Another movie which I love while most people thought it was average. I highly recommend this film for someone looking for something that differs from your average ho-hum Hollywood flick.
