  • American sign language for babies & toddlers…
    ★★★★★

    Here are 200 signs which are not too complex and geared towards young children but will be a fun addition to any adults vocabulary. Again, probably not super applicable to daily conversations IRL but it's nice to be able to sign colors, numbers, abc's and I particularly enjoyed "Kangaroo".

  • Drawdown : the most comprehensive plan ever…
    ★★★★★

    This is a sort of encyclopedia of two page spreads detailing different industry changes or innovations that are under way or need to become more mainstream. Not geared towards the individual unless you happen to have money or alot of land or want to become a career switcher and harness and sell natural energy. Still, if you have any amount of power and influence it's easy to skim through and you can be an over night expert on what companies are on the yes list and which practices need to be tossed out. Five stars for trying to address the topic but again unless you are a CEO or Mayor there's not going to be change solutions for individuals.

  • You want it darker by Cohen, Leonard,
    ★★★★★

    Leonard Cohen's very dark album. "Hineni Hineni, I am ready my lord"  so haunting and mature you will play it over and over. Like a jewish, multi-lingual Johnny Cash.

  • A New day in old Sana'a
    ★★★★★

    A true art film capturing womens' hidden roles as it pertains to middle eastern culture, reputations, and society. Mild subtle family themed plot twists and muslim mosque melodies will haunt you till you pause the movie and look up the cost of flying there.

  • Gul?ba gai?ga
    ★★★★★

    A woman (Rajjo) battles against a crooked politician (Sumitra Devi) in order to create a sanctuary for abused women in her country. Much singing, dancing, and fighting ensue. I enjoyed it as far as Hindi films go but the corruption and sabotoge tactics at the end don't make for a Hollywood happy ending so I consider it an adult themed movie.
