"I remember seeing the first part of the film adaptation of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness. The book was beautifully written, sending the reader into a deep, dark jungle, with strange things lurking about just beyond sight;…"
There was an idea stuck on my head in this week. I went with some of my friends in the theater and we saw a movie. The movie was "Ana Karenina" inspired by the book of Leo Tolstoy.

"As a side bar, I was told years ago that when Playgirl magazine was first published, men for the first time got to feel what it's been like for women forever it seems. (No one of either gender can compete with the perfect air-brushed…"
""I'll also add: if there needs to be a change, the leaders of the change should be members of the group. For self-appointed guardians to decide for other ethnicities what they should be offended by seems pretty demeaning."
"The whole "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me" thing is B.S. I remember meeting a woman in her 80s a few years ago who shared with me that when she was a child she was called ugly, and that stuck with…"
