Yuyen Garden

I had to go twice! That is how startled I was when I first saw the Yuyen Garden. There were fish and statues and arched passageways, ancient tiles and dramatic trees. One viewing was never going to be enough. It was some two hundred yen to go in. After walking through tables after tables of strange…

VANCE JOY: JOYFUL LAMENTATION FROM A SONG BIRD.

Its not easy to infuse a story in a set of words that should, at most, take two minutes to get through. Its even harder to make those words resonate with a shared life lesson. When we find music that does so, it is undeniably beautiful. It echoes in our hearts and makes our dance more…

What’s wrong with Suicide Squad?

Seriously? Are you asking? Or do you mean What was the worst thing about Suicide Squad? Let me start us off by saying, I just didn’t believe in Joker and I think we need to believe him. The late Heath Ledger did it right. He had the perfect amount of crazy in front of a mind that was…

DCs Legends of Tomorrow. REVIEW

I had fond memories of hope that this would in fact be an extraordinary journey through science fiction and the world of superheroes. But instead, it was not. DCs Legends of Tomorrow has nearly brought me to new depths of depression. There is nothing extraordinary or exhilarating about its first season. In fact, it is so…

Life In A Day. REVIEW

It started with a call out by Scott Free Production house, which caused over 80,000 people from across the world to submit videos of a single day. July 24th 2010. It was in the bid to create a time capsule of how the world was, is, and will probably be remembered, and have that shared from generation to generation as…

Selfies

They have taken over, haven’t they. I on the other hand, am still not quite certain of their purpose. Especially with those funny stories emerging of people stopping their cars by the side of the road just to take a selfie. In the middle of town! A place that is largely not popular at all. If…

Anime: The Most Iconic Characters

The world of animation is vast and addictive. There is a powerful story out there for every sort of person. Its all about how manga is written and therefore, what emotions it evokes in us. Personally I have never fallen in love with a character like those in the world of Japanese animation. And the only…

Celebrity 1, Science -374

There is a fine distinction between what is good and what is bad. Better yet, what should be celebrated and what should not. But, like many media outlets, we as a species are very unclear about that. The entertainers are everything in today’s society. While in the past they were largely considered jokesters, out to…

Writer is, what Writer does

To be a writer is very simple. You must ignore the silence, doubt, self-pity, forebearing despair and a desire to slap the world right. So you can achieve anything. The long hours are meant to blend together, not stand out. After all, a writer is the one who listens to the world. Especially when it doesn’t want…

After The Flag

Through the temple, through the palace, we were always after the flag. Visiting China, is the most fascinating trip I ever took. The famous places I heard about in stories and television were right before me, much more artistic than I would have ever imagined. I was there, in Beijing, walking around and smiling at…

The Great Musicians

Music is a complicated form of earthly celebration. Not because of the writers and the singers but the listeners who decide what goes where. The bright lights, the pretty girls, the repetitive music is always chosen above the rest. And the rest of the world doesn’t seem to have a choice after that. We face…
