45 Simple Pleasures That Money Cannot Buy

November 14, 2016 | No Comments » | Topics: Life, List |

Accidentally overhearing someone say nice things about you.

Laughing soo hard you don’t even make any noise.

Songs that bring you back to great moments in your life.

Those random good-hair days when you just feel beautiful or handsome.

Realizing you were smiling the entire time you were talking to someone, right after you hang up the phone.

Laughing hysterically with your friends, then pausing momentarily, looking at each other, and then laughing hysterically again.

Sleeping right next to someone you truly love.

A certain smell that instantly takes you back to another place or time in your life.

When the song on the radio ends right as you pull into the driveway.

The feeling you get when a group of friends all laugh really hard at one of your random jokes.

That instant when the thing you didn’t understand suddenly makes complete sense.

Seeing the person who makes your heart race, even if its just for a few seconds in the hallway.

The kind of friend you can say “I love you” to without implying anything but a deep platonic friendship.

Hearing a song that you haven’t heard since your childhood and realizing you still know all the words.

When someone unexpectedly remembers your name.

The feeling of ‘clicking’ with someone else’s personality instantly, and being able to talk about anything even if you’ve only known each other for a few hours.

When questions on an exam give away the answers to other questions on the same exam.

Laughing so hard you start to cry.

Cracking up so much while you’re trying to tell a funny story that you can’t even speak, and everyone else can’t help but laugh along with you even though they haven’t got a clue what you’re laughing about.

When nobody else uses the public restroom the entire time you’re in there.

Sitting outside during a thunderstorm. The sound of the thunder, the flash of lightning and the smell of rain to remind you of the beauty of nature.

Popping bubble wrap.

That instant when the thing you didn’t understand suddenly makes complete sense.

50 Books You Need To Read Before You Die

June 18, 2015 | No Comments » | Topics: Books |

books you need to read before you die

50.  In Cold Blood by Truman Capote —” Considered by many critics to be the original non-fiction novel, this 1966 book details the brutal 1959 murders a farmer, wife and two children in rural Kansas. Capote deftly takes the reader into the minds of the two parolees who committed the crimes and describes the effects of their actions on the local community.

49. The Teachings of Don Juan by Carlos Casteneda —” First published as a work of anthropology, this mind-altering journey documents Casteneda’s apprenticeship with the Yaqui Indian Sorcerer Don Juan. It is almost impossible to not feel totally transformed about the true meanings of reality after reading this sometimes shocking story.

48. Animal Farm by George Orwell —” This is a novella with a very large message. Although it was first published in 1945, Orwell’s allegorical tale about a group of pigs that take control of a farm and attempt to shape a new society still creates haunting comparisons to present day political struggles throughout the world.

47. The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka —” This 1915 novella is consistently cited as one of the seminal works of short fiction. Kafka deftly takes the reader inside the mind and life of a traveling salesman who awakens one day to find that he has been transformed into a horrible creature.

46. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens —” It’s hard to pass up reading a book that has sold over 200 million copies since its 1859 release. A gripping tale that is set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution defined by the often brutal historical events that caused the pheasant’s revolt against the aristocracy.

45. The Naked and the Dead by Norman Mailer —” This was Mailer’s first published novel that has been in consistent demand since its 1948 release. A well-crafted story blending military action with deft character development.

44. Deliverance by James Dickey —” After reading this novel, many people will probably never want to go canoeing in the Georgia wilderness. A disturbing look into brutality, survival and the psychological aftermaths of lives that have been traumatically altered forever.

43. The Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy —” There are few living writers today who can match the mastery of the English language and prose that Conroy presents in this 1986 novel revolving around the traumatic events of a South Carolina family. There are numerous passages in this book that people will want to reread just to experience the sheer joy of words well-written.

42. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley —” The futurist themes in this novel are still relevant today even though the book was published in 1932. Huxley sought to deliver a frightening vision of the future and did so with stunning clarity.

41. A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking —” This landmark science masterpiece is surprisingly readable given its exotic realms that range from the big bang theory to what happens when the universe ends. As should happen with all great science essays, the reader is forever altered after reading about how creation works and what the concept of time really means.

40. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo —” This sweeping 1892 French novel contains both factual and historic events while following the lives of several characters over a seventeen-year period in the early nineteenth century. The main focus is on the struggles of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his path to rebuilding his reputation in a time of both excessive wealth and crushing poverty.

13 Documentaries For People Who Usually Don’t Like Documentaries

October 9, 2014 | 2 Comments » | Topics: Documentary, List, Movies |

Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2011)

I had to start off by mentioning Jiro. Not only is this documentary fantastic, but it’s one of the more recognizable titles in this list. I have friends who either never watched, or claimed to hate documentaries, but ended up loving this movie. I think it’s a great jumping off point into the genre. Jiro Dreams of Sushi chronicles the life of Jiro Ono, an 85-year-old sushi chef who runs one of the best sushi restaurants in the world. However, as much as this is a film about the quest for gastronomic perfection, it’s also a film about family, legacy, personal sacrifice and how all these things fit together (or don’t).
