Have Yourself a Non-Capitalist Christmas
Christmas is a worldwide holiday, known as a time of cheer and family. I haven't really seen it as that in a long time though? I do see, however, tons of adds from big stores lauding great deals for toys and decorations to be the bigger, better Christmas celebration from the time the clock hits 12:00 a.m. on November 1st. That's all it is, for two months up until the actual celebration. Get more light-up deer, get a huge tree, get tons of presents, BUY TONS OF THINGS.
Blinded by Belief: What to Expect When Mercury Goes Retrograde This November
On November 16th, at 5:50 AM, Venus will turn direct in the goddess’s home sign of Libra, at 25 degrees, helping us find clarity in our relationships, and move forward with what the retrograde taught us.
Either it was funny to view life through the tiny lenses of their devices, or they knew something I didn't know as I entered through the train doors. I plop into the nearest seat.
'Doctor Who' Fans Brand Chibnall’s Series 11 as Mediocre Due to Average Scripts and Wrong Changes
Doctor Who has always been a massive hit with its fans ever since the show first launched way back in 1963 with William Hartnell as the First Doctor. Since the very first series, the time travelling alien, the Doctor, from the planet Gallifrey has had many stories told across all of time and space. He’s met historical figures, as well as going to the very end of the universe.
REVIEW: 'Doctor Who' (11:6) "Demons of the Punjab"
"Demons of the Punjab," is by far, the strongest episode of the season so far. The only episode to rival it is "Rosa," and there's a clear indication that this new version of Doctor Who is strongest when presenting historical, socially aware stories rather than escapist adventures. More cynically, I might point out that these two episodes are the ones with the least involvement from show-runner Chris Chibnall. "Rosa" was co-written by Malorie Blackman, while this has a sole writing credit for Vinay Patel. On the other hand, the episode feels very much a part of the new Who. While there has been quite a variety of stories in just these six episodes, series 11 still feels consistently part of one vision for the programme. Chibnall has stated he's using the open writing room approach to brainstorm ideas, and while this episode seems very much the work of Patel, others doubtless had influence.
Home? (Chapter 11)
Jerry's blood fills the air and runs under the sole of my shoe, soaking the predominantly white colour of the sneakers with a tint of dark red. His gun lays beside him, shining under the blinding and electric light that brightens up the room, as if it is reminding that I am one of the reasons for his death. I can't help feeling guilty, even though he deserved it. A question now lingers my mind like a hidden predator awaiting for fear and confusion to settle into my weakened brain: Is Max really dead? Or was he trying to scare me?

'First Man' Review
One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. Damien Chazelle (director of La La Land and Whiplash) reunites with Ryan Gosling once again but not to be a jazz pianist—he's going to the moon and this movie is amazing.
Blueprints for a New Society
This will be a rather ambitious 600 words, but I am definitely up for the challenge. I want to briefly outline some of the key factors that I feel are an essential part of moving ahead in a sustainable, harmonious way as a loving and creative human society.
Review: "Calypso" - 'Star Trek: Short Treks' Episode Two
As much as I found to enjoy with the first Short Treksepisode "Runaway," this is so far beyond in terms of quality and content it scarcely seems to be part of the same series. A two-hander set centuries after Discovery, yet still strongly linked to the primary series, "Calypso" benefits from some excellent acting, stylish direction, and a compact and effective script.
The moon is of huge significance in the field of Earth science, controlling tides and seasons with its gravitational pull. In some respects, it symbolises man's ability to aim higher than our ancestors ever thought possible, and the exploration of worlds beyond our own.
