Is the era of heroes dead? These conspiracy theorists would have you believe so, as their hypotheses concerning under the radar actions involving the government and it's various subsidiaries remain somewhat believable, although unheard of. It all depends on the one viewing them, or you the reader, and the only individual who is worthy of categorizing them as true or false is also you, yourself. In my mind, I accept what is believable to me, rolling with the realities as best as I can. In other words, there's no way of proving them right or wrong, and in any case we're all just in a simulation, so what's it matter? Just use your imagination.
Netflix is home to a bounty of amazing documentaries, from TV mini-series or full-fledged features, and they're often some of the most interesting around. One of the more approachable and proliferated topics of discussion is, of course, crime as can be seen in their new addition of The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story (which I highly recommend, despite it not being a documentary per say). True crime documentaries—and I mean true crime—are hard to come by nowadays, but as you might expect there are an abundance hidden within the deep, dark recesses of the immense Netflix library.
Donald Trump is not new to the world of controversy, fake news and White House media coverage. In fact, his name and face have most likely appeared in practically every daily newspaper, news telecast, and mobile video ever recorded since his 2017 inauguration. Much to his chagrin, when panning the camera from his overzealous self-proclaimed politics and ideas, one might eventually catch a glimpse of his wife Melania Trump, seen hovering by the corner, looking rather dolled up for an event unnecessarily sanctioned. Assessing President Trump's first year in office is no easy task, but if we take a quick and simple look at the ridiculous things Melania Trump has ever said, we may get a small glimpse into the ways his family operates. To start, I'll give you what I feel is her least ridiculous quote, spoken on the Today Show when asked what habit she wishes Trump would cease:
Political satires are some the most poignant and blunt of all artistic endeavors that which seem to make fun of the natural order. Without political comedies, like the beloved Saturday Night Live skits and MAD Magazine spoofs, how could we truly express ourselves in the light of our own democracy? As such, we can look to some of our most talented individuals for their satirical insights and comedic slapsticks pertaining to the governance of our own country.
The breakout show that began all the way back in 2005 still continues to excite us by drawing audiences into the literal skulls of their fictionalized villains. They aren't always based on real life criminals, but boy when they are it's an episode of insanity like never before seen. That's not to say the best Criminal Minds episodes are all ones that depict real-life serial killers, it's just to point out that the real, heart-stopping eps are the ones that showcase the best terror, thrills, and villainy ever depicted by the show in their attempt to profile a predator.
You're in the Army, now! Chances are you're unsure of what to pack before heading off to basic training, and that's not a bad thing. Not every recruit will be as prepared as the next one, and even fewer are mentally ready for the hardships awaiting them. Even after you have checked and rechecked your various necessity lists, undergoing a strict look at your packed belongings is key to maintaining the correct packing list when headed to boot camp. It's nothing to fear, basic training is a great way to learn about yourself both in a mental and physical connotation, so you have nothing to worry about.
