With a Cast and Crew of Thousands, the Talkies Come to:

Downton Abbey: A New Era (2022) The general release of this film was yesterday, so I took the missus to the movies for her birthday (which is actually today). We haven’t been out to see a film in almost two-and-a-half … Continue reading

When a Memory Turns into a Nightmare

Requiem (2018) We started watching this eerie series last night on Netflix. Ordinarily, I stay away from ‘gothic thrillers’ but this one has an interesting vibe to it: the classical music in the soundtrack. . In a way, I can … Continue reading

A Collaboration that was Recorded on Music Videos

Bryan Adams (November 5, 1959) & Lysette Anthony (September 26, 1963) I knew she was someone I was familiar with, but I’d forgotten her name, over the ensuing years: Lysette Anthony. She ‘starred’ (and was featured) in several of Bryan … Continue reading

Crossing Over with…

John Edward (October 19, 1969) I’ve been a fan of John Edward from 2000 (and, yes, we got to watch this TV program in England). The delivery is rapid-fire, with seemingly impossible hits, and some delayed misses, and plenty of … Continue reading

‘Cause He’s the Cashman…

Cash Peters (June 6, 1956) He styles himself ‘the English Channel’. That’s an interesting body of water. He has a couple of YouTube channels, one of which I’ve shown on previous posts, Soul Crossings with Cash Peters. It’s a unique … Continue reading

I Kid You Not: The Boys are the Clue…

The Stranger (2020) This is the second Netflix mini series that we’ve watched that was adapted from Harlan Coben’s books. I won’t go into the twists of turns of the plot, but needless to say it’s a good binge watch. … Continue reading

All Things Bright and Beautiful…

All Creatures Great & Small (2020) We’ve been watching this new adaptation of James Herriot’s books on PBS on Sunday nights, season two. I have always wondered why we needed a new version when the original BBC series was perfectly … Continue reading

Shaped by the Potter’s Wheel

Rupert Spira (March 13, 1960) This man looks familiar, although I’d never heard of him before yesterday. The title is inspired by his love of all things pottery. I suspect he’s approve of my use of the metaphor that we … Continue reading

Is This the Real Thing, or Just a Fantasy, Too?

Dorothy Eady (Omm Sety) (January 16, 1904 – April 21, 1981) My friend, Ian, sent me the link to the History Channel’s page about Dorothy Eady, last night. I’d heard of her before, but actually didn’t pay her any attention, … Continue reading

I Could Have Sworn I’d Written about This Years Ago

David Bowie (January 8, 1947 – January 10, 2016) Is this one of my prime examples of the Mandela Effect? I even remember discussing the fact that David Bowie‘s birth time of 9:00 am should actually be 11:50 pm, as … Continue reading
