Are you in a relationship with your smartphone?

I have recently joined the 'Dark Force' and am now a proud owner of, yes, an iPhone. While having the 'world' at my fingers tips has made my life seem more productive, I began to wonder. Is it really?!   After AsapSCIENCE video, 5 Crazy Ways Social Media Is Changing Your Brain Right Now, I am not so sure. I've embedded the video below.

Hercules (2014) – Movie Review

Hercules 2014 with Dwayne Johnson I recently saw Hercules in 3D at the IMAX theatre in a fit of sheer boredom with no expectations.

Overall, I actually enjoyed the film and found it very entertaining. (more…)

The Void

Living in a world of pure imagination. But what comes when the imaginary world becomes more real than reality. Perhaps you come to understand that reality isn't real. Only Illusion. But then again, So is imagination. There's nothing to cling to. Only Self. However, the self is only a shadow of the real you. Only Illusion. And you are left with nothing. Falling into a void. Terrified of losing everything you clung to for fear of this moment. The moment you realize that you're already lost. No more points of reference. No more shapes, forms, and ideas. Nothing. (more…)
