Click on image for fullsize Last night I was listening to two keyboardists whom I'd like to get more familiar with. Dave Brubeck and Bill Evans. Doing a library search for Brubeck, I came across an lp called "Time Out." When I tried to place an order for that CD through the library, I got... Continue Reading →
So it took me a while to get around to watching this movie. I suppose the promo image for Donnie Darko was a bit of a turn off. Someone in a hoodie looking ominous with fire in the background. I imagined it was like Firestarter (which I haven’t seen… but you get the idea). All... Continue Reading →
Here's a Q&A I did last month at Allexperts.com, where I've been volunteering for many years. The Q&A deals with meditation and other factors contributing to a sense of unwellness or wellness. I can't reproduce the post here for copyright reasons. But I can link to it. http://en.allexperts.com/q/Meditation-2544/2014/7/unable-objective.htm Related articles Past life recall and 'enlightenment'... Continue Reading →

One of the more interesting things about volunteering at AllExperts.com is that I've come to realize that quite a few everyday people experience paranormal phenomena. Perhaps because these folks can be anonymous, a virtual outpouring of the unusual comes in on a fairly regular basis. Here's a Q&A that involves several possible paranormal phenomena and...

Not too long ago someone asked me at AllExperts.com about all those people who claim to see recurring numbers in their lives. Clearly some think the whole idea is pure hogwash while others take it quite seriously. Some of the theoretical problems with the idea are discussed here: Why do millions claim that they "keep...

Here's another question at AllExperts.com. I'm not a blind debunker of all things paranormal. But with these types of issues I always stress the importance of looking for natural answers to supposedly paranormal phenomena.
