Halloween (2018) - review, spoilers

Halloween (2018) - review, spoilers

Hey readers! This entry is a bit different. Together with A, i went to see the latest installment of the Halloween franchise. I thought I could post a review of the movie too, just like I used to. However, there's a twist to this review: A wrote it, and not me. This will be obvious as you continue reading the entry. I will put her words in orange as she mixes spoilers with her thoughts on the movie. If you wonder what I thought of the movie, my answer is simple: i pretty much agree with everything she says. I liked it, and i can't say there was something particularly disturbing... maybe the beginning...

Shadowscapes Tarot – Seven of Cups

Shadowscapes Tarot – Seven of Cups

Hello again for another divination guide session. Or something like that. Some cards are easier to interpret compared to others. The Seven of Cups in the Shadowscapes Tarot deck is one of the easy ones. Or is it? What do we see? In the Shadowscapes deck, the Seven of Cups is mostly blue in color. There is also a bit of white and a bit of golden/yellow. Almost in the middle, we see a couple standing on a cliff. The cliff seems to be trailing off into a faraway mountain cliff. This mountain has a castle on it. There is a closer mountain with another castle at its top. The female figure looks up to...

Hello and welcome to another tarot card interpretation. Or sorts of. This is the Seven of Swords in the Shadowscapes Tarot. As if the title didn't already say it. But here I am, repeating myself because ... I'm not sure why. What do we see? This card is mostly purple with hints of muddy blue and yellow. and white. My eyes look first at the lightest parts of the card. And this is when i realize that the white part is actually a swan. The bird is with its back at the viewer, wings spread and looking to the right. I don't think the swan is trying to take flight. It looks rather startled, or perhaps...

Hellooo~~~~ Let's continue with the tarot card interpretations, shall we? We have a long way to go, and I have 2 extra decks to interpret here for you. Remember that what I'm about to say is just my opinion, and is not a set-in-stone interpretation. I also want to mention that I may not know or understand the meaning of all the elements on this card. The Hierophant is the 5th card in the Major arcana. What do we see? The predominant color is a vibrant yellow. The next color is green, and then purple or lilac. Upon a closer look, we see there is a tree with a human face and arms. He looks displeased....

Hello again! Another tarot card interpretation is here! I hope soon i'll have another movie or book review as well. I have quite a few of those in the works, so. Ok, so if you want to see this card in all its glory, you can go to the official page. Otherwise, you'll have to rely on what i say and show you. What do we see? One of the first things we see is the dominant color, a dark hue of blue with white in the middle. The blue part looks like swirling clouds. Crows fly into that swirl. Lowering my gaze, i see a male angel figure - he has a white wing (his left one) and a wing that appears to be...

Final Recipe (2013) - review, spoilers

Hi all! It seems I was hit with new ideas for this blog: writing my impressions on movies or series I watch, books I read, and .. well, I don't play video games. This is a movie from 2013 and it's a South Korean and Thai production. This is a drama about growing up, family reuniting, and it has a happy ending. There are also a couple of more funny scenes, but comedy isn't on the menu of this movie - see what I did there? I watched a version dubbed in Chinese [most likely Mandarin, but I can't be sure at this point], though originally English was also spoken in the movie. The movie was also subbed...

Fantasy Island (2020) - critique and spoilers

Hi all! Today we take a look at a movie, after quite a bit of time. This post first appeared sometime in 2020 on the old site/platform. Just because it's quarantine time due to the virus (in mid April when i started writing this), doesn't mean we can't watch movies anymore. So, we watched Fantasy Island, and I have opinions (who nobody asked for, of course). I only recognized 2 actresses in this supernatural horror, Maggie Q (as Gwen Olsen). and Lucy Hale (as Melanie Cole), and one actor, Michael Rooker (as Damon). I actually wouldn't really call it horror, but a thriller for i didn't get scared...

Shadowscapes Tarot - Eight of Pentacles

Shadowscapes Tarot - Eight of Pentacles

Hello, all. Let's learn more about the Eight of Pentacles from the Shadowscapes tarot deck. What do we see and what does it mean? The main color of the card is green, pointing to money and abundance. On this card, we see a big black and red spider building his web. He is close to what appears to be its center. He used a nearby tree branch as the basis for his web, as well as a rather thin whimsical grass-blade for a second side. We don't see the 3rd point of support, which makes me think this spider is not as wise as we would assume. His web also has some holes and doesn't seem 'perfect'. Any wind...

Shadowscapes Tarot - The Wheel of Fortune

Shadowscapes Tarot - The Wheel of Fortune

The Wheel of Fortune is a rather important card, in my opinion. It's classic meaning refers to destiny, fate, turning points, movement, change, patterns, and cycles. This card reminds us that "what goes around comes around." What do we see? The main color is yellow, with hints of blue and purple. In the center of the card there is a big wheel/circle decorated with what seems to be Celtic knots, a sun/star right at its center, surrounded by a what looks like a stylized snowflake. Half of the wheel looks faded, though it's probably some mist or fog that gives this impression. The other half has better-defined...

Ciuc Radler Raspberry and Lemon "Beer" - Taste testing

Hello everyone! This is another taste testing ... entry! Today we're taste testing the Ciuc Radler Beer Raspberry and Lemon "beer." Here we have a beer with no alcohol content, but with raspberry and lemon flavor! DISCLAIMER/WARNING! please don't drink alcohol and drive. And please don't drink too much either! We went out searching for a small decoration that was supposed to be 50% off. The store did have the item, but not this promotion. They had a promotion of buy 3 themed items, pay just for 2 of them. On our way back, we stopped by the grocery store and i suddenly wanted some beer, but nothing...
