Socialist Realism: Examining the corpus of Body Vibes wellness claims


Have you heard of Body Vibes? Metaphysical and religious speculation aside of course. The words are somewhat counter to the prevalent drum beat of Trump Russia I know but I found Body Vibes website and their wellness products after a blurb on Gwen Paltrow over at CNN. Then the “REAL scandal” broke around 8:30 p.m.… Continue reading Socialist Realism: Examining the corpus of Body Vibes wellness claims

Historiography and the limits of naturalism: Thoughts on privacy, propaganda and free speech


I do feel secure in presuming that I'm not the only American who didn't vote in 2016. I also feel no guilt watching President Trump on TV, reading his Tweets, listening to his "alternative facts," or learning more about how his decisions and actions ruffle and offend my fellow human beings at home and abroad.… Continue reading Historiography and the limits of naturalism: Thoughts on privacy, propaganda and free speech

Flashback 2015: Apothecanna’s THC infused Spa products


Where there's smoke there is fire and the cannabis cloud over Colorado appears to be lingering like smog on a otherwise clear day. Cannabis proponent Apothecanna has positioned itself beyond the pale, as an adjunct measure in pain management and only time will tell if they can remain straight enough to keep their wellness branding intact.

Like many of us around the world, I'm watching President elect Trumps press conference. Am I the only one staggering over the idealism in play? Apparently not: this news conference is being held in part over stock market fluctuations related to some of his comments. I'm not ready to speak to what I'm hearing point… Continue reading REPEAL AND REPLACE: “We’re doing THE DEMOCRATS A SERVICE.”

The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin Review


Random Musings: Global Decentralized Money is real...? I'm sitting in bed, watching The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin. I've had a small business idea brewing for awhile. I remember seeing a news blip in 2013 about the first bitcoin crash. I'm truly stunned at how far it's come. There is SO MUCH information in this… Continue reading The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin Review

WTF? “Mother! Must you always have a needle in hand?”


I saw the new Allied trailer last night and immediately, I thought of Ralph Fiennes. Who is "channeling" whom? I loved The English Patient folks. Still do. I also can still quote the screenplay for Interview with the Vampire. Something is sketchy film goers, let us all ponder. Where is Ralph, as his brother asked… Continue reading WTF? “Mother! Must you always have a needle in hand?”

Product Reviews: Murad Active Radiance Serum


I've been working for Massage Envy just shy of two years. Massage Envy uses Murad skin and body care products exclusively and so far, the only Murad product line I've tried is Environmental Shield. Why only one? Because it's that good. I rely on public transportation. This means that I am exposed to harsher elements… Continue reading Product Reviews: Murad Active Radiance Serum
