Review of “Prescription for Life: Three Simple Strategies to Live Younger Longer”

Book Review by Ginger Marin as posted to Goodreads in 2015.   I’ve read many nutrition and diet books and articles over the years and I have to say I was not very impressed with Dr. Richard Furman’s “Prescription for Life” mainly because I was expecting something new. This book, however, reads like a nutrition treatise for the complete novice as it largely advocates a … Continue reading Review of “Prescription for Life: Three Simple Strategies to Live Younger Longer”

Award of Attorneys Fees: The False Non-Equivalency

No one forces any party to get an attorney. It’s for that party’s own convenience.  On the other hand, the party litigating pro se (self represented; also “pro per”) usually does so for lack of funds to pay for an attorney.  The party with an attorney saves his/her own time and effort; the party without any attorney must work full-time as his own attorney.  He … Continue reading Award of Attorneys Fees: The False Non-Equivalency

The Amazing Hacksaw Ridge and Andrew Garfield

Here it is February 2017 and it’s time for the Academy Awards to be broadcast this Sunday.  The awards’ season opened with people jumping up and down over La La Land for who knows what reason. The movie sucks. I guess people forgot what really good musicals are like. It wasn’t that long ago when “Chicago” hit the screen. Now that was a great musical. … Continue reading The Amazing Hacksaw Ridge and Andrew Garfield

2016 Oscars Telecast Sucked

Emmy®-winning live television producer David Hill and Oscar®-nominated producer-director Reginald Hudlin produced the 88th Oscars telecast on Feb. 28, 2016.

James Bond Songs: Book Review

The James Bond Songs: Pop Anthems of Late Capitalism by Adrian Daub My rating: 2 of 5 stars As I was reading “The James Bond Songs”, I kept wondering for whom did the authors write this. For die-hard James Bond film fans? No, it’s too stiff and technical for them. For musicians? Perhaps. For film music composers? Definitely. But even then this book is so … Continue reading James Bond Songs: Book Review

The Film “99 Homes” Dramatizes America’s Big Banks’ Mortgage/Foreclosure Fraud

Remember when the Occupy Wall Street movement went global? And when we were constantly being bombarded by stories about the institutionalized fraud and scams perpetrated by the big bank mortgage/foreclosure industry and their independent contractor cronies? How is that the ire of “the 99%” amounted to nothing? When Senator Bernie Sanders said Wall Street controls Congress, he was right on the money. The film “99 … Continue reading The Film “99 Homes” Dramatizes America’s Big Banks’ Mortgage/Foreclosure Fraud
