5.0 von 5 Sternen Controversial Would Be An Understatement For This Movie, 31. Juli 2015
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Casino Jack (DVD)
I admit that I found out about the Casino Jack movie from a Washingtonian Magazine article that features recent 2015 coverage of Kevin Spacey. This movie dvd version of Casino Jack includes photos of Kevin Spacey (as Jack Abramoff), Kelly Preston (Pam Abramoff), Jon Lovitz (Adam Kidan), and Barry Pepper (Michael Scanlon). The movie plot centers around what is listed to have been inspired by true life events as Jack Abramoff and his associates (Kidan, Scanlon etc.) were creating deals as lobbyists. However, the beginning of the movie does foreshadow a little what may happen. For instance, there is a scene where Abramoff and Scanlon are frustrated at being turned for one of the casino deals. The frustration is not what opens the door to the scandal, it is what the men are talking about doing to Bernie Sprague (Graham Greene)one of the casino members who were not in favor of retaining their services (which makes the name calling allegations tame compared to just that one act of revenge). Then things get even more complicated when the character of Abramoff is shown being let go from his job at the firm Preston Gates and Ellis, His shock is understandable due to this happening at what looks to be a highly regarded restaurant that serves top notch sushi. His natural progression of then going to work for Greenberg Traurig was to be expected. However, the movie shows that what may have indirectly affected what later happened to him was his drive to open and maintain two successful restaurants and what he did to try to keep the money flowing. For instance, the movie showed that he took Adam Kidan on as a business partner. However, things start to unravel when questions arise as to certain money balances and Kidan hires one of his mob men to “deal with and/or handle” Konstantinos Gus Boulis (Daniel Kash). Despite his best intentions, Abramoff’s daughter Sarah Abramoff (Hannah Endicott Douglas)gets a glimpse as to what may happen to her father in a scene where he is trying to pitch a script to what appears to be Hollywood area professionals who approve and spearhead certain scripts to made into movies. One of the bright spots to the film, Pam Abramoff is shown standing by her husband Jack Abramoff through both the good and adverse times, and I saw on an online aboutdotcom website that they are still married to this day. Some of the extra bonuses attributed to the Casino Jack dvd; Casino Jack; A Director’s Photo Diary, Gag Reel, and Deleted Scenes. For instance, A Director’s Photo Diary by the late George Hickenlooper features 85 different takes on what went into the creation of Casino Jack that are listed to have been compiled from May 23, 2009 to June 24, 2009 (these 85 takes featured the takes on how he felt in relation to the making of the movie when it came to collaborating with the various actors/actresses featured in Casino Jack). Additionally, screenwriter Norman Snider is among the various people discussed in this bonus feature. With these bonus features, there is so much detail just in the 85 feature take that could take up the length of at least two reviews.

Ministry of Sound Drive is a two disc collection with a diversity of dance, electronic, and pop songs that have 20 songs on each of the cds. A current listing of the wide variety of music tunes and songs can currently be found on Amazon UK.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Euphoric Love, 31. Juli 2015
Rezension bezieht sich auf: So High (MP3-Download)
So High by Starchaser feat. Lo-Fi Sugar (Martin Roth Remix) appears to be a euphoric trance song about a person who wants to spend time and/or have some type of light hearted get together with a person they care about. The lyrics So High appear to be about someone who elicits the feelings of butterflies in the stomach (metaphorically speaking).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Can Have Various Meanings, 31. Juli 2015
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Take Your Time (MP3-Download)
Take Your Time by Sam Hunt is a quirky country song that touches on the idea of getting to know someone from a stance of just seeing where it goes in a light hearted way. The video to the song, although still good, gives the song a different meaning due to the song including the well-meaning story of a woman who has a baby that she loves a lot. Anyhow, I admit that I first heard of Take Your Time through iheardradio via a radio station based out of Norfolk Virginia and then some days later via two different radio stations (on the same day within two hours of each other) in the Washington D.C. area.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Romantic And Spiritual Side of Depeche Mode?, 31. Juli 2015
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Exciter (Audio CD)
Exciter by Depeche Mode is another cd that is part of my husband’s collection (which he first purchased when he was still stationed in Iceland via the navy through 2001-2002). The Exciter collection starts out with an optimistic vibe via Dream On. I Feel Loved is also another tune that touches on a more hopeful type of meaning, as a way of the benefits of feeling loved through both challenging and good times. Exciter by Depeche Mode is a spellbinding type of alternative rock music collection that can leave an eclectic music listener with the enjoyment of getting different meanings and/or deeper meanings from the songs each time they listen to a music set such as Exciter.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dido’s Heart, 31. Juli 2015
Rezension bezieht sich auf: No Angel (Audio CD)
I confess that I first heard Here With Me on a radio station around September 2000. However,No Angel by Dido is also one of those music sets that brings back positive memories for me of music cds I was listening to around the time I first met my husband (we met 2002 , got engaged 2003, and married 2004). No Angel by Dido has the well-known Here With Me and uplifting Thank You. There is also other meaningful songs such as All You Want (although I admit that Take My Hand is also one of my faves from No Angel by Dido). Either way, No Angel by Dido is perfect for eclectic music lovers who also listen to pop music from the late 1990’s, early 2000s.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unadulterated R-Kelly, 31. Juli 2015
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The R.in R&B Collection Vol. 1 (Audio CD)
R In R&B Collection 1 by R. Kelly is another magnificent 18 song music set that features many of the songs that skyrocketed his fame and popularity due to the appeal to a wide audience such as on tracks one-Bump and Grind (where part of the song is sampled on a 2015 Ministry of Sound music collection). A person must also have an open mind and/or be comfortable in their sensuality to enjoy this collection because of the racy meanings in Your Body’s Calling, Track 9, and Fiesta (feat. Jay Z, Boo, and Gotti) etc. and more. R-Kelly also expresses versatility in some of his other song themes such as the spiritual areas in I’m Your Angel (duet with Celine Dion) and I Believe I Can Fly. Overall, R In R&B Collection 1 by R. Kelly is a fantastic music set for eclectic music listeners of the 1990’s and early 2000’s time periods. My only caveat was that I was surprised not to see Snake on this collection (a song that I first heard in California via a music collection that refers to a dance). I’m previously familiar with a multiple number of R-Kelly’s songs due to his music being popular among my classmates during my middle school years, his music also played on both the radio and tv during my high school years (he even made an appearance in the parking lot of a grocery store that I worked at in high school from a radio station, but I could not get out there among the large crowd to see him because there was not a temporary relief person to cashier in my place). Last, but not least, I must give credit to being somewhat familiar with him from both a younger sister and working around a former navy coworker (female) who greatly enjoyed his music.


Ultimate Toni Braxton
Ultimate Toni Braxton

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unabashed Emotion, 31. Juli 2015
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Ultimate Toni Braxton (Audio CD)
Ultimate Toni Braxton features multiple hot hits from Tony Braxton’s career showcasing music both from the 1990’s and 2000’s such as Another Sad Love Song, Breathe Again, You Mean The World To Me, How Many Ways, You’re Makin Me High, and more. I admit that I’m previously familiar with some of these songs because her music was very popular on some of the radio stations in Illinois that I was listening to during middle school, in addition to seeing her music featured on television such as with the previous mentioned songs that I just listed. Nonetheless, Ultimate Toni Braxton is a strong 18 song R&B music set for the many who are previously familiar with any of her songs and/or eclectic music listeners who also listen to 1990’s/early 2000’s music.

  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Writing Primer, 31. Juli 2015
The Freelance Writer’s Bible: Your Guide to A Profitable Writing Career Within One Year by David Trotter is a perfect guide for aspiring writers. Page 27 covers the topic of how to get past and/or break though obstacles towards writing, page 140 covers areas to look into for writing such as greeting cards, short fiction and poetry, Clarifying your purpose, audience, and strategy (pages 211-213), and sample strategic marketing plan. Guides like this are important to someone like me because I made a promise to my husband that I would only be a writer on the side (regardless of how much money my writing makes) and my intent is to write both books and scripts under a pen name (for reasons I prefer to avoid elaborating on via this forum). Guides like The Freelance Writer’s Bible are pivotal to a novice such as myself who has a lot to learn both in writing and doing so under a pen name (at the least one for my book writing and another pen name for my script writing).
