Well, well, well. Looks like cancel culture is hitting harder than ever in light of current events. Everyday on Twitter, another celebrity or “public figure” falls victim to #cancelculture or #ThisPersonisOverParty.
Cancel culture is mainly a hot trend on Twitter exposing and shaming people for . . . basically anything. The target ranges from famous people to influencers to businesses and corporations.Continue reading “Cancel Culture”
Freebird is a nice, mostly lighthearted read for everyone. The poems are short and not overly complicated, which can be refreshing in these times of uncertainty. In other words, it’s a good quarantine read.
Freebird is divided into six parts: life, time, humanity, relationships, mind, and self-love. Some poems have a universal message, but most feel like a glimpse into the writer’s mind and life. Poems like that of “Existence” exemplify the universal feeling of tiredness. On the other hand, poems like “Fog” have that air of childhood nostalgia, a yearning for simpler times.
I don’t usually read books of poetry, but I chose this one for a change in my reading diet and am glad I did. The pages themselves are pleasant surprises with their doodles and sketches as visuals for the topic in each poem. The doodles range from cute to fun to silly to sometimes serious, adding to the overall entertainment aspect of the book.

This weird movie starring Colin Farrell chronicles a man, and others like him, checking into this hotel for single people. During the application process, they each have to choose an animal they’d like to be turned into. If at the end of the 45 days stay they’re still single, they’ll be turned into that animal and sent out into the world.
It’s a dystopian movie. Only couples can enjoy the city, taking trips and cohabitation. If you’re seen alone, authorities ask for papers proving you’re in a relationship. Also, at the hotel, it’s all about routine.
Scenarios are acted out by the staff, presumably, every morning as to how and how not to act in relationships and how women are safer from danger when accompanied by a man.
I wasn’t being held at gun point when watching this, but it sure felt like it.Continue reading “RVW The Lobster Movie Review”
You can read my full review on Reedsy Discovery: https://reedsy.com/discovery/book/reinventing-hannah-jack-ori Below is an excerpt of my review.
At my age, and having not experienced extreme sexual assault, I don’t think I’m the target audience for this book. However, I think a young adult audience and survivors of sexual assault may gain more from this book than I did. The reigning message in this book, which is rape doesn’t diminish one’s value as a person and brings about lots of complexities. Granted it’s a sensitive subject, is handled well at first. However, it encompasses the entire plot of the story to the point I began to wonder if any closure or solution would be reached over the course of 300 pages.Continue reading “Reinventing Hannah Reedsy Book Review”
