Babes in Toyland: A Musical in Three Acts (Classic Youth Plays of the Broadway Stage)
Babes in Toyland: A Musical in Three Acts (Classic Youth Plays of the Broadway Stage)
It was probably 1950 when the obligations of a family dinner forced me, then a six-year-old, to turn off a telecast of "Babes in Toyland." All my subsequent life has been spent wondering what happened next in that story. A few decades ago, I tried to borrow a copy of the libretto, specifying as carefully as I could to Inter-Library Loan that I did NOT want any "adaptation" -- and they sent an adaptation anyway! Now at last, thanks to this Theatre Arts Press edition, I have learned what it was really, originally, all about. And very different indeed it is from its multitudinous adaptations!
Since becoming enthralled with this version of "Babes," I have learned that the basis for this 2018 edition is the Copyright libretto, which was submitted fairly early in the process of shaping the show to the stage. In many ways it differs even from Constantine Grame's restoration of the 1903 first run in Chicago: and every such revision and adaptation I have yet examined weakens the story out of all recognition. In the Copyright libretto, it emerges as a gripping coming-of-age story, full of vital characters, with one of the strongest endings I have ever encountered outside of Chaucer and Mickey Spillane. Apparently by the time it opened on Chicago, it had already been adapted to something coy and cutesy that never gets all that far beyond Mother Goose Land.
I am old enough, and knowledgeable enough about my parents' and grandparents' generation, that I caught most of the 1903-era jokes, and found them by and large deliciously funny, though many more of them than one might expect seemed aimed primarily at the grown-ups in the audience. I fell in love with the principal character, Alan (who doesn't even make it at all into a number of the adaptations), and Roderigo and Gonzorgo are probably the most memorable henchmen ever, at least until the advent of the Minions. Perhaps readers will be surprised to find the Toymaker, the character who sings the famous "Toyland, Toyland, Dear Little Girl and Boy-land" number, turning out to be a villain even more wicked than Uncle Barnaby.
There are some typos -- e.g., very often "friends" should be read as "fiends." Some at least of these may go back to the original Copyright typescript from which the book edition was transcribed. It is almost always easy enough to see what was intended.
For me, this was fifteen dollars very well spent, and a key addition to my home library.
The New Buffettology: Warren Buffett's Proven Techniques for Investing Successfully in Changing Markets
The New Buffettology: Warren Buffett's Proven Techniques for Investing Successfully in Changing Markets
I like both Buffettology and Buffettology II as books I can go back, skim through, and find straightforward ways of examining the worth of stocks. I give it 5 stars as being excellent for steering you to good investments. But don't assume every other method and every investor is as stupid as the book claims: it will lead you to value this book's opinion alone too much.

In Buffettology II, I'm sure many novice investors come away with the idea that EVERY major investor is an idiot and that through Warren-like value-investing methods you will have a tremendous advantage on the rest of the market. They also treat long-understood investing phenomena, like a long-lasting competitive advantage, as if it's only being revealed to the world through this book. For example: "...we'll let you in on one of Warren's best kept secrets. He figured out that some, but not all, companies have what he calls a "durable competitive advantage."" HE figured out? Ben Graham and Phil Fisher were writing books about it while Warren was just getting out of college. Phil Fisher's "Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits," published in 1958, goes to great length explaining the situations to look for in which a company has such an advantage.

I'm glad such a thing is discussed in the book while at the same time I'm outraged the authors LIE to me to make the book look more unique and valuable. EVERY chapter includes some kind of thing like that which makes you wonder at the authors' motives.

Why do they need to lie and exaggerate if they're really providing the best way for the average person to evaluate stocks without going through the whole, formal, "asset value, earnings power value, growth value" math calculations required by advanced methods as per Greenwald, et al's "Value Investing"?
Art & Science of Value Investing: Invest Like Billionaire Warren Buffett
Art & Science of Value Investing: Invest Like Billionaire Warren Buffett
My review...by Robert W. Johns.

I purchased this on kindle and it arrived on my device without any problem...

This book was fun and informative. I bought this to see how Mr Thompson thinks, as the
are few books available which are actually written by individuals working in Value investment
based money management, running other peoples money as such.

I have been a value investor for five years full time and was looking for something to fill some gaps
and as a reference point. This book simply delivers, the section on discounted cash flows would be
invaluable to someone just starting out in qualitative analysis and understanding future business cash flows.

Scott writes with a relaxed and honest candor, never becoming pretentious or overbearing. It is evident he
has a genuine passion for Value investing and this shows in the highly complementary description he gives
of famous Value investors.

These kind of things are what got me into this industry, the is a considerable amount of kindness, honesty
and integrity found in the famous past, present professional practitioners of this investment approach. No doubt
many other such individuals will be the same in the future. There's a good introduction to Scott's influences and sets
a nice theme for the book.

Sometimes even those with an excellent memory can benefit from reading what they may have forgotten in time and
this book is one of those great reference guides to keep you mind sharp. The author has an MBA and in many countries
it can be difficult to hold a relevant MBA and be a value investor just down to the practicality's of it all. Therefore his line
of thinking has been of a benefit to me.

All in all i definitely picked up a few golden nuggets throughout the text and some insights making the purchase worth while.
Most of the big ideas are well represented here and beginners would do well to read this book before the classics to get
a good framework for how the goal posts have changed with market efficiency.

This reviewer would be happy to see this text in a university coarse. Although
such a coarse would undoubtedly require more material. Value investing cant be taught in a
day but you can get the bug that fast!.

I had heard of Philip L. Carret, but not in detail. There is a section with a transcript on his personality and style. This was
the highlight of the book for me as he had an incredible money management record and i am interesting in learning more.

So i have withheld one star as customary for me. I only give 5 stars to a few people and those people are Ben Graham
, Charlie Munger and of coarse Warren Buffett. My only criticism is that the book contains many quotes. Who actually originally
said some of these things first i believe may have been in some instances lost to the hands of time. I may well be wrong
and this is simply nitpicking.

No Filter: The Inside Story of Instagram
No Filter: The Inside Story of Instagram
Sarah Frier's debut book is an excellent read about the history of Instagram. Her in-depth reporting reveals numerous details about how Instagram was founded, the vision that set it apart from other similar apps at the time, the acquisition by Facebook, and the painful tensions that later arose and led the founders to eventually leave. You get the inside perspective on Silicon Valley culture and the personalities and strategies of not just Instagram, but also Jack Dorsey at Twitter and especially Mark Zuckerberg at Facebook.
As much as this reveals the inner workings of everyone's favorite lifestyle app, it also delves into Mark Zuckerberg's philosophy on growth and competition and the "family" of companies he owns - Instagram and WhatsApp. The story doesn't just provide a narrative of the history of these companies, but also gives important context about where they might be going - especially as they face grave concerns related to privacy and competition.
Writing style is great and easy to read.
I would also recommend this book to anyone feeling pressure about their public Instagram persona. This book shows how much the perfect lifestyle you see in posts is not just fake, but carefully developed and curated by marketing and design experts to make money for influencers and the brands they represent.
The Valley of the Gods: A Silicon Valley Story
The Valley of the Gods: A Silicon Valley Story
Holy cow, she loves really long sentences- the kind where the author has a million different thoughts and wants to put them all together because, you know, sometimes I think I'm Jack Kerouac writing stream of consciousness so my sentences just go on and on and on, and by the end you have no idea what the hell I'm talking about.

This book really is all over the place. And I wanted to like it (obviously, that's why I paid fifteen big-boy dollars to buy it.) But I was continually going back to reread sentences three or four times to figure out what the hell she was saying. And there's a constant tangential train of thought where a new topic is brought in mid-paragraph, and you're like, "I'm sorry, what?" I stopped reading at the 30% mark (chapter 3 , maybe?)

Heed the warnings of the bad reviews and save your money. Do not be lured in by the simple one-line five-star reviews that say this book is the best thing ever. It's not even close. I'm sad. I miss my fifteen dollars.
Slaying Goliath: The Passionate Resistance to Privatization and the Fight to Save America's Public Schools
Slaying Goliath: The Passionate Resistance to Privatization and the Fight to Save America's Public Schools
Diane Ravitch’s book is a powerful weapon describing the fight between David, representing the resistors—the advocates of public schools, and the corporate Goliath, the disruptors—advocates of privatized education. I’ve learned a lot from this beautifully written and engaging discussion about the rise and fall of the disruptors and hopeful victory of the resistors. But I missed a satisfactory explanation of the underlying cause of this struggle.

In telling this story Diane Ravitch rightly points out: 1) that the root cause of low performing schools is poverty, and 2) unlike the earlier rich who wanted to reform and improve the public schools, the new wealthy disruptors (Goliaths) don’t trust the public sector which includes “government schools” and they don’t trust local control, so they use philanthropy and the promotion of charter schools as devices to control under the guise of helping and 3) for the disruptors profits are more important than students.

In addition to the above three points Ravitch poses, what I believe the central question of the book on page 140 “Why were the billionaires so eager to open charter schools whose results were not different from those of public schools and for which there was very little demand? Why not put their millions into fighting for better funding for public schools, where the vast majority of students are?” but she never really answers her question. Instead, she left me with inciteful stories of the fight between David and Goliath. I was hoping for an answer that also pointed to the underlying cause of the battle—the economy.

What’s missing in this analysis is the sinister C-word (capitalism) the privatizing, isolating, profit-maximizing engine and creator of vast inequality that sets the stage for the battle between Goliath and David. We need a chapter on the relationship between capitalism and public education. Despite the excellent stories “Slaying Goliath” in uncritically accepting capitalism as the norm will only propose reforms that will eventually fail as did the new deal.

By approaching problems with schooling through an analysis of capitalism resistors will be able to act more effectively in their battle with Goliath, for they will see: 1) where poverty comes from (the class struggle and growing inequality) and 2) how Goliath, in his frenzy for profit and growth considers schooling to be a training ground for compliant workers and consumers 3) why Goliath has grown so powerful and can influence education, the economy, and government through lobbying and control of the media.
The First Apple: Sold by Steve Jobs from his garage in 1976, discovered in a storage auction 28 years later
The First Apple: Sold by Steve Jobs from his garage in 1976, discovered in a storage auction 28 years later
This is an odd book. After the author buys a rare Apple-1 computer at a storage unit liquidation auction, he descends down a rabbit hole of learning about the people who originally created it, as well as the people who bought the originals or collected them later.

Apple-1’s are indeed rare; only a few hundred were originally made, and most of those were traded in (and later destroyed) as their owners eagerly exchanged them for more capable Apple ][‘s. Only a few dozen Apple-1’s are thought to still exist, and some have recently traded hands for hundreds of thousands of dollars. This book focuses entirely on this one original Apple product; so if you’re looking for a more general history of the company, its people or products, this isn’t it.

There isn’t much of a narrative thread to the book; it’s mostly a series of interviews of people connected with the Apple-1, either in the ‘70s when it was created or currently as collectors. Some of the stories are interesting, and do re-create Silicon Valley in the early ‘70s; a very different place from what it is now. The writing in the book is uneven, I noticed several misspellings (or perhaps transcription errors, e.g. “bite” instead of “byte” when referring to computer memory). He does have a useful glossary in the back for non-technical readers. Photographs of the people, places and products discussed would have been a welcome addition.

shop4ever Re-Elect Trump 2020 Make Liberals Cry Again Women's V-Neck T-Shirt Political Shirts Slim FIT
The shirt itself fit great but the sleeves were way too tight. My bicep is only 10" around. I would expect a small to have some room but it is cutting off the circulation. It relaxes a little bit as I wear it, but as soon as I wash it again at super tight. Otherwise I really like the look of the print and the color of the shirt, I just only wish the sleeves were a little bigger. Maybe it's just this shirt, maybe someone else wouldn't have the same problem. I am only speaking from my experience.
Aretha Franklin - Greatest Hits: 1980-1994
Aretha Franklin - Greatest Hits: 1980-1994
Aretha Franklin est toujours dotée de sa voix exceptionnelle que l’on retrouve ici principalement sur des morceaux de soul ou légèrement disco.
Ce « Greatest hits » a été notamment classé en 1994 en Grande Bretagne (#27 UK), on y retrouve 10 hits UK-US dont 9 hits UK sur 13 et 8 hits US sur 10 pour la période annoncée. Il est peu compréhensible qu’il manque 4 hits UK et 2 hits US sinon que ce sont souvent des duos. Enfin les principaux y sont :
- « Freeway of love » (#03 US) en juillet 1985 puis (#51 UK) en mai 1986,
- « I knew you were waiting for me » (#01 UK) en février 1987 puis (#01 US) en avril,
- « Jump to it » (#24 US - #42 UK) en octobre 1982,
- « Willing to forgive » (#26 US) en juillet 1994,
- « Who’s zoomin’ who » (#07 US - #11 UK) en décembre 1985,
- « A deeper love » (#05 UK) en mars 1994,
- « Get it right » (#74 UK) en 1983,
- « Another night » (#22 US - #54 UK) en mars 1986,
- « Jimmy Lee » (#28 US - #46 UK) en février 1987,
- « Jumpin’ Jack Flash » (#21 US - #58 UK) en novembre 1986.

On retrouve une bonne reprise de son succès antérieur indémodable « You make me feel (Like a natural woman) » suivi de l’excellent slow « I dreamed a dream ». Sa version de « Jumpin’ Jack Flash » est aussi bonne mais ne vaut tout de même pas l’original.

Bob Dylan: Unplugged
Bob Dylan: Unplugged
Unfortunately, there is a scarcity of excellent content for the many electronic platforms currently available to those who appreciate music. I have only found 4 concert DVDs that capture the power of the artist. This DVD is one of them. The other 3 are: Crosby, Stills & Nash - The Acoustic Concert; Roy Orbison - Black & White Night; and James Taylor - Live at the Beacon Theatre. Fortunately, someone had the foresight to capture this 1995 concert recorded at Sony Studios. The colors, camera work, and lighting are the best I have seen on any concert DVD. The DVD looks amazing on a modern flat screen TV. The same goes for the excellent recording of the musicians. They will be watching this DVD 100 years from now assuming civilizaton does not destroy itself before that time arrives.

Instead, a bunch of throw away outtakes and filler material have been included. The author made a poor selection, and I can't give it more than 2 stars.
Absolute Java (6th Edition)
Absolute Java (6th Edition)
Very useful book. I have had this assigned as a textbook for a Java class in college and loved it. It thoroughly goes through each concept used in OOP and has great reference material for Java syntax and methods. My favorite part of this book are the abundant challenges at the end of each chapter. These challenges are great for practicing coding on Java which is always the best way to learn a language. Renting now but will buy shortly in the future!

TCL 10L, Unlocked Android Smartphone with 6.53" FHD + LCD Display, 48MP Quad Rear Camera System, 64GB+6GB RAM, 4000mAh Battery
The TCL brand is really hitting where it counts. I was looking for a phone with a large screen that didn't cost an arm and a leg. So I turned to the TCL 10L. The phone is great but not with it's setbacks. Now this is a budget phone but they didn't sacrifice were it matters. The 6GB RAM offered definitely makes up for the lower spec processor. I didn't have any problems scrolling through the menus, playing games (PUBG, COD) and streaming videos. The storage is on the medium size 64GB but it's expandable via micro SD which makes up for it. The reception works great on this phone even though it doesn't support band 71 on the LTE bands, never had a call drop and video calls were amazing. We're this phone makes cutbacks is on the camera. No night sight, slow motion videos are super blurry, auto camera has to be super close to the object and in good light source to get a nice picture, portrait works as intended. Selfies are ok. There's also no fast charging and with the large battery in it, makes for long charging time, about 2 hours from 10% to full. Now the good thing is it uses stock Android for system management (think something like the Pixel phone) it runs very smooth. The screen is beautiful with their porpietary NXT vision enhancement. Honestly I can't wait to buy the 5G version of this phone because it will come with better cameras and better processor. But for the price this phone is amazing! Don't hesitate to buy it with confidence that you are getting a great product.

Great buy! I only gave 4 stars based on the fact of the blue and purple being very hard to read on the grey, definitely not a deal breaker though. Very soft, comfortable, true to size and has a complimenting fit for women as well. Every time I wear it I get tons of compliments with good reason because it’s great quality and so heartfelt. Highly recommend!
The Gift
The Gift
I consider this movie one of my top three favorite movies of all time. It also changed my life. The idea that you can be married to someone and not see them for who they really are, not understand who you're really dealing with. The wife did something incredibly brave at the end of the movie and this is what in significant part spurred me to take the same action in my own life. I am really grateful that I saw this movie at the time that I did.

It's like in the movie when Gordon says he believes that bad things in life can be a gift. That has always been the case in my own life - the bad things happening are what has woken me up and given me the motivation and/or necessity to change my situation. Had these "bad things" not happened, I would not have gotten something/somewhere which is so much better.

From the trailer, it looks like some sort of generic thriller. This couldn't be further from the truth. In reality, the movie is so much deeper than that and goes in a completely different direction than one is expecting. The movie is incredibly thought provoking and, at least in my case, life changing.

See this movie!!

Zebra F-301 Ballpoint Stainless Steel Retractable Pen, Fine Point, 0.7mm, Blue Ink, 12-Count
I loooooove these pens, and finding a steady supply of them on Amazon has been a God-send.

I buy them a dozen at a time, and sprinkle them liberally all over my car, home, and work office. They are great. They write without fail (I don't scream at them like I do others, saying, "YOU HAD ONE JOB!!!"). They're smooth, and the fine point makes my writing look great.

And honestly, pens in general are awesome, aren't they? You can be GOD LIKE in all that you create with them. I mean, you can write the greatest literature the world has ever seen from your sweet little blue-inked Zebra pen.

If I wasn't a happily married man, I'd want to marry these. But then again, I'm a little crazy. But these at about a $1 a piece...puh-leeeze! Such a freaking bargain.

Get them.

All or Nothing
All or Nothing
If you want to watch full games and film go to NFL Gamepass. The show is rated Mature. I am tired of all these people who want their children to enjoy a product put out for mature people and give bad reviews because of it, not helpful. Let them watch cartoons or something. And if you wanted this to be a documentary on the concussions of the Arizona Cardinals, sorry to disappoint, there is other things out there for that.
Now if you want to see what a full season and postseason is like for a team in the NFL (not just meaningless preseason games) this is it right here... You can feel the heartbreak, the victories, the pain of the players. It gives you another perspective of what the game means to a lot of people. It also allows you to see deeper into who these players are, some people complain about the cookie baking, cooking, and changing diapers, well I say we get enough of the bad apples on the news and everyone is all over these guys when they screw up, it feels nice to see that they are real men, with real families, and a lot of heart.
As a die hard Cardinals fan:
I love this team, and I really wish Larry gets his ring. No man deserves it more than him in the NFL.

Alpha Rider Case Oil Drain Plug For Yamaha Warrior Raptor Wolverine Big Bear YFM350 YFM 350
I bought this immediately after trying to change the oil on a 2002 Yamaha Warrior 350 I had recently picked up. The OEM drain plug was stripped out to the point I couldn't get any socket on it. I had to remove mine with a dead blow hammer and a cold chisel. This is a perfect fit and replacement. It even had spots on it in case the nut get stripped out and you have to chisel it off. The OEM did not, and was a pain to get off.
BLACK PANTHER [Blu-ray]
BLACK PANTHER [Blu-ray]
While I ranted and yelled about how stupid it was for the Academy to nominate Black Panther for best picture there are a few things that must be said.

After a string of just ok MCU films that seemed to be nothing but, filler and non serious stories, Black Panther arrives and gives us a truly deep MCU film everyone (regardless of skin color) can get behind. This film is a truly great story that talks about shaping your destiny and deciding what you want to be. Add to that some incredible set pieces, costumes and characters and you get one of the best MCU films in the library. This movie was a truly fun ride regardless of the missteps we get in the third act but, I was truly satisfied with the end product.

Black Panther paves the way for more great films in the MCU and I am glad that this one brought us back to a reminder as to what makes the MCU so great.

This is hands down the best and most useful Christmas present I have ever given my husband. Not only are they excellent pizza cutting scissors, they are good for everything. They are nice and sharp and do every job you can think of. They come apart easily for cleaning, and can go in the dishwasher with no issues. They have been used daily since Christmas and have been in the dishwasher 50 times easily, and they still look and feel brand new! Glad I spent the extra money to finally get a good pair of scissors for pizza and more!!
A Santangelo Story: A Bonus Story (Lucky Santangelo Book 11)
A Santangelo Story: A Bonus Story (Lucky Santangelo Book 11)
This is suppose to be a novella, which generally has a beginning, middle and end. This was more of the first 2 chapters of a book and didn't have a real end.
SPOILER:
Bobbie likes a girl who is hard to get, finally gets to date her then sleeps with her, then she asks "are you going to pay my rent" to which he says no, then she never sees him again, then she disappears. His friend dates her roommate and says at one point she (missing chick) returned and got her stuff and left. Near the end, he runs into this now former g/f of his buddy at the airport who says only his buddy was at the apartment when the mystery lady returned and got her stuff.... hmmmmm.
His sister comes to town and dates the same buddy then chicken's out of any physical thing with saying she's not feeling well had thinks she has a cold coming. Buddy gives her a woman's sweater to warm her then she goes back to her brother's in a cab. Later at the airport Bobby notices the sweater she's wearing belonged to missing g/f...... the end??? Oh well he thinks??

Really??? That's it? Then it goes into the first few chapters of "Drop Dead Gorgeous" which I read quite awhile ago but same "Buddy" is dating/living with a friend of Bobby's from high school with 'Hollywood actor parents".....

So I guess this "novella" is a lead into this book but with all the hanging parts wasn't a complete novella or short story, just an intro to the book I guess.
Considering I got it for free I still feel ripped off, as it wasn't a complete story and not the Jackie Collins writing I'm use to.
Over the years I've read all her books and seen the few TV movies made on several of them.
But this isn't worth the price paid and I would advise anyone not to bother getting this even at the cost of free!
My spoiler above basically told you the entire story!
Don't bother!
No Rest for the Dead
No Rest for the Dead
I* cannot give one author any credit on this one book. I have to give credit for about twenty well-known and bestselling authors who collaborated as a team, to pull off this compelling and powerful mystery. Once I was finished with the first chapter, I kept on reading until I finished the entire book........Former homicide detective Jon Nunn, had that one case that haunted him for ten long years. Being the arresting officer at the time, he always had his doubts about Rosemary Thomas killing her husband Christopher Thomas. He never had gotten over this particular case and because of it, he lost his wife Sarah and his job, as in the process. He always felt that Rosemary was innocent but the district attorney including the prosecutor and the judge pushed for a guilty verdict and her excution just to hasten their own personal goals and pursue their political careers. In other words, they didn't give a damn about Rosemary Thomas and after ten years, it still eats away at Jon Nunn no matter how many times he tries to forget. That is why, he is so stunned when he receives an invitation of a memorial in Rosemary's name at the museum where Christopher Thomas was once curator. Jon could never stand the late Mr. Thomas. He was crude, obnoxious, greedy and a complete womanizer. But Rosemary was no killer and he was going to prove it either way. Through some of his talented probing, he discovered that everyone who was invited to this shindig tonight were also present at Rosemary's execution. Something told him that whatever was going to happen at this memorial was going to be highly important. After Jon arrived, he watched everybody with a keen eye but he never expected what he was about to hear. It seems Rosemary on the morning of her execution wrote a letter and entrusted it to her best friend Belle, with instructions to be read in front of all friends and witnesses by Belle herself on her tenth anniversary. Jon couldn't believe couldn't believe in what he was hearing because it doesn't get any better than this. He stares and let's his detecting take over and soon not long after, the whole and ugly truth slowly surfaces to the top. Now he has a mission and he will not stop or relent in any way until the day comes when he can clear Rosemary's name and finally to bring back the Jon he used to know, to wash away all the guilt and cleanse his soul but most importantly, to like himself once again!...............thank you♡♡
Bowdrie (Louis L'Amour's Lost Treasures): Stories
Bowdrie (Louis L'Amour's Lost Treasures): Stories
Louis L'Amour what a fine writer. A man who actually lived and practiced what he wrote. Every adventure featured Chick Bowdrie, Texas Ranger, who rides the lonely by himself and his mountain bred horse.
Each and every adventure has a lot of action and
Bowdrie checks places where the incidents happen collecting evidence, also he speaks with town's people gathering evidence by the party he's looking for. It's called western style detective work and a bit of forensic science used which would be a long time coming, this is the beginning. Great adventures every one of them a quick read and plots are the same "find the bad men"but that's were the similarities end. A great author who was able to write and incorporate the lives of those brave folks settling the west.

Anything written by Louis is wonderful. I am of course first and last a western fan and Louie is the best western writer of all time
He always has colorful characters and he has traveled the land he writes about.
And lets face it He has had John Wayne in a couple of movies based on his books. Not to forget Sam Elliot and Tom Selleck
As you can see I really really enjoy Louie L'amour books. I own them all in paperback
But find books on the Kindle so much easier to carry with me and of course easier to read because you can size the print as you need it
Please, Read, Enjoy a break from whatever it you need a break from
The Witches (1990)
The Witches (1990)
After 9 years of waiting, I finally get to see this film as it was shown in the theater!
The film itself is excellent: who isn't interested in a film featuring the world's Head Witch?
Who, when she takes off her face/upper body mask, is everything you could hope for in a witch?
Now for the notes on the BD:
This is an MoD BD (so far as I can tell). This means that it is similar to a DVD-R:
a) the aspect ratio has been correct on every DVD-R so far, and the MoD BDs appear to be maintaining this tradition
b) the quality of the source materials is not always as good as might be wished; in this case, however, I saw no problems; still, other reviewers did, and to them I say: this is how it is with Mod BDs/DVD-Rs
c) Warner Archive DVD-Rs tend to have a menu with two choices ("Play" and "Trailer") this BD has a main menu with a third choice ("Subtitles"); the popup menu is the same, and does activate the subtitles, which turn out to be English SDH; the film is a chapter every 2 to 3 minutes or so, possibly inherited, so to speak, from the pan-and-scan DVD (Warner Archive DVD-Rs mostly have one chapter every 10 minutes).
These discs are not made for elitists. They are not made for those who value special features. They are made for people who want to /watch the movie/. And who have been waiting a long time to do so. They are films whose market cannot support the effort required for a full-scale DVD (never mind BD), but a smaller market for them does exist.
My advice on these is this: if you have been waiting and waiting for the film, buy it. The chance of it coming out on a full-scale DVD or BD is nil, for what market there is is being exhausted by the DVD-R/MoD BD. But if you are picking a few films from a list of films, all of which you want to own eventually, pick the full-scale DVDs/BDs first. You can always buy these when you either get desperate for them or run out of other films to buy.
Western Classics Collection Volume I: Riders of the Purple Sage, The Light of Western Stars, The Rainbow Trail
Western Classics Collection Volume I: Riders of the Purple Sage, The Light of Western Stars, The Rainbow Trail
Without a doubt Riders of the Purple Sage is the best western ever written. And Zane Grey is the best author to have ever penned the story of the American West. Along with Heritage of the Desert these two rank one and two for me. Some would say Zane Grey is old fashioned and out of date, but this is not true, if one wants to read good romance, good action, good social interaction and psychological stories, with excellent and brilliant descriptive backgrounds as to the time and the place and the area where these stories take place. This particular edition I found unique in its design and lay out which makes for easy reading. I highly recommend it to anyone, especially to the women out there, as ZG writes a lot of this story from a woman' perspective. The Light of Western Stars is one of my favorite Zane Grey romances. And when easterner Madeline Hammond gets off the train near midnight and things begin to happen right away, you know that this is going to be a good one. Gene Stewart, the other half of the romance is a man's man with the traditional western values but who has at first kind of lost his way because of drinking too much. But that gets straightened out through the love of a woman. The cast of characters includes some cowboys, old time cowboys, you will never forget. There's an animal, a magnificent horse, in the story; an automobile, driven by a cowboy who loves to go fast and scare his passengers, and this plays a vital role in the climax of the story as only Zane Grey can describe and tell it. This is another of his books which take place in contemporary times, written when these events were playing themselves out along the US-Mexico border. This is another of his books which is told primarily from the woman's perspective and would indeed appeal to the female reader; it's NOT a bang, bang shoot'em up with street duels and impossible violence, but realistic characters and events. It's a great book for anyone to enjoy, a historical romance set in the West; not a "western". The Rainbow Trail brings closure to the novel Riders of the Purple Sage. It answers the question, What happened to Jane and Lassiter? But more importantly, it opens up a new series of events and characters that a reader can identify with and become emotionally involved with. Zane Grey knew how to get the reader hooked and then keep him on the line to the finish, just like he knew how to fish for world record sharks in the ocean. With the back drop being the desert and plateau and canyon country of Utah and Arizona which Zane Grey could so vividly and memorable describe in words no other author has managed to emulate, he tells a story so unique and compelling that I am sure when it was published no one could resist to read it, especially since it brought Riders to a conclusion. Standing alone, it holds up just as well today. A defrocked minister comes west after hearing the story of Fay Larkin, and Jane and Lassiter, from two of his parishioners and decides to hunt for them, and in so doing find himself and his God. The twists and turns he faces in his search make for good mystery and good romance. Overall, these are three of Zane Grey’s best novels, and I highly recommend this collection.
Tales of lonely trails
Tales of lonely trails
TALES OF LONELY TRAILS, by Zane Grey (1922, and republished in 1986 and 1988) is a most important nonfiction collection of Grey's own first person accounts about his numerous adventures in the wild outdoors of the American West. They are not only his accurate descriptions of several distinctive and very diverse geographical locations, but also these accounts demonstrate his writer's methodology of later incorporating such descriptions of real geographical places into later works of fiction. The first of five articles is entitled "Nonezoshe", the Indian name for the Rainbow Bridge, once almost inaccessible, but now a National Monument which can be seen today by boat along the manmade Lake Powel on the Colorado River. Grey visited it in March 1913; Teddy Roosevelt in August of that same year. Both, as two of the few non-Indians who at that time had seen the now famous stone arch, wrote about their adventures in getting there by an arduous, dangerous overland route in which some pack animals slipped to their deaths over what Grey named as the "Glass Mountains". Grey's descriptions and his Navajo guide as a prototype were adapted to fit into his later stories such as THE RAINBOW TRAIL (1915), the sequel to his famous RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE (1912), and again in, perhaps, his best novel, THE VANISHING AMERICAN (1925).

[See Photo: ZG and Nas Ta Bega, his guide to Nonezoshe (at Google images, Los Angeles Times copy). This photo was misplaced at the wrong page of the 1922 edition of TALES as "Which is the Piute", p.113. Various photographs in the first edition were improved in the 1986 and 1988 versions. ]

Likewise, the articles on "Colorado Trails", "Roping Lions in the Grand Canyon" and "Tonto Basin" are also Grey's personal experiences from which he drew material for several other works of fiction. This collection ends with "Death Valley" which served as material for his desert stories as well as gives readers an indication of his influence on social issues of his day. His description of the operations of the borax factories in Death Valley led quickly to improvement of those working conditions because of the publicity of his firsthand account.... So, add this as an indispensible adjunct to your reading of Zane Grey novels. You can't go wrong - and you will be amazed at the vividness of his descriptions when you happen to visit one of these places today.

Our 11 y/o is finally enjoying to read because of these books. I haven't the slightest clue as to what they are about, but he sure does and he loves them. No more fighting to get him to complete his 1 hour of mandatory reading/day. Often times, he can put the books down ( I am slowly buying him the monster collection of Naruto books that he has wanted.
Reflections of Yesterday: A Novel (Debbie Macomber Classics)
Reflections of Yesterday: A Novel (Debbie Macomber Classics)
Very disappointed in this book. I am a Debbie Macomber fan for many years now, but this book did not seem like one of her books. There is not a person in this story that I thought was any way decent except Glen. The others were all out for their own agenda and didn't care who was hurt in the meantime. Angie and her Dad screamed at each other through out the whole book.Simon acted like we would expect a spoiled rich kid to act.The "sex scenes" were not handled as a Macomber book is usually. She doesn't usually " go there" with so much detail. For those of us who are not used to her "going there" this was a big disappointment. I for one don't want to go there,Is this one of her very early books? Maybe that is the problem. Angie's father is dying and she calls the person that he has hated all his life to come and " comfort her" and "comfort her he does" Simon and Angie are two totally selfish people.Poor Glen,he loves Angie so much and she just crushes him, but then askes him to help her take care of her father. The ending in this book is awful but I can't say I didn't expect it. What a disappointment!!!!
The Wingless Bird [DVD] [Import]
The Wingless Bird [DVD] [Import]
This film (a mini-series, I think) is a marvelous period piece, with carefully chosen settings and beautiful period clothes. The irresistible ingredients of this story are good character building, wonderful taste and great accuracy in the setting, good and handsome actors and actresses, war (World War I) and romance. To these ingredients we may add a whiff of Cinderella, and even a pinch of Jane Eyre in the characterization and evolution of Agnes and one of the male characters. We follow the progress of Agnes from dependent -but clear minded- girl to strong, determined woman on whose decisions seem to depend the well-being, and even the life, of those dearest to her, as she proves herself to be a strong, intelligent, no non-sense person. What I most liked about the story (appart from the setting and clothes) is that we see everything from Agnes' point of view, so we know the reasons for her choices and decisions and we see through her eyes her (and other character's) actions and mistakes. The only exception to this are the scenes set in the trenches of World War I, but it is all right, since war is a rupture of the ordinary rythm of life. Highly recomended even if you don't like romance (neither do I).
Hermann Hesse: Das Leben des Glasperlenspielers (German Edition)
Hermann Hesse: Das Leben des Glasperlenspielers (German Edition)
Leicht zu lesen ist diese Biographie, die sicher für den interessierten „Laien“ geeignet ist. Für den Kenner dagegen bietet die Lektüre wahrscheinlich nichts Neues. Der Autor schreitet das Leben von der sehr schwierigen Jugend des eigensinnigen Hermann, die von ständigen Kämpfen mit den Eltern und Lehrern geprägt ist, bis zum sanften Tod im Jahre 1962 ab.

Dass Hesse ein sehr zurückgezogener, ja eigenbrötlerischer Mensch gewesen ist, war mir schon vorher klar. Überraschend ist aber für mich, wie jähzornig bis zur körperlichen Agression Hesse sein konnte, um „dann aber von einem Moment zum anderen einzulenken oder einfach wortlos wegzugehen.“ Unwillkürlich hat man als Leser des „Siddhartha“ oder „Narziss und Goldmund“ einen ganz anderen Eindruck von dem Autor. Man stellt sich einen weisen, abgeklärten Menschen vor. Jedenfalls wird dieser Eindruck kräftig korrigiert. Hesses Persönlichkeit hat viel von dem Gegensätzlichen, Abgründigen, den Seelennöten, der Auflehnung gegen die unwahre Norm und das Zeitgeistige, das sich ganz besonders in den Romanfiguren Dostojewskis wiederfindet. Kein Wunder, dass er diesen Autor besonders schätzte.

Nein: Hesse war mehr als ein Einzelgänger, er war besessen von seiner Berufung als Dichter. Diesem inneren Drang musste alles in seinem Leben untergeordnet bleiben. Eine künstlerische Existenz, die mit viel Leid, verletzendem Zurückstoßen und Einsamkeit erkauft wurde. Vor allem auf Seiten seiner drei Frauen. Aber Hesse wäre nicht Hesse, wenn es nicht auch die andere Seite gäbe: das volle und naive Hingeben in die Freuden des Lebens.

Die letzten 20 Lebensjahre werden von dem Autor doch recht kurz abgehandelt. Sollten diese Jahre wirklich so ereignislos gewesen sein? Für denjenigen, der sich aufgrund seiner Werke auch mit dem Menschen Hesse befassen will, ist das Buch als erster Zugriff sicher geeignet. Danach mag jeder selbst entscheiden, wohin der Leseweg führen soll. Lieber doch wieder zurück zu den Werken des Nobelpreisträgers Hesse oder weiter und tiefer in die Beschäftigung mit diesem großen Schriftstellerleben
Harry Styles
Harry Styles
Anyone who has followed One Direction, and specifically Harry Styles, won't be too surprised by the direction of his solo album. He has always been known in the band as "the old soul" and his influences are Fleetwood Mac, Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Paul Simon, and alternative rock rather than R&B, urban, pop, and electronic than his other band members have taken. This album represents him very well.

I think so many people associate One Direction with " What Makes You Beautiful " and immediately dismiss them as boy band fluff. The first two albums are NOT my favorites as I'm a 40-year old mom of boys. I wasn't dragged to their concerts, but found them after their appearance on The Late Late Show. Harry caught my attention immediately, not his looks but his low, raspy voice. Color me curious, I used Prime to listen and was surprised to discover they had some excellent songs (Harry-specific compositions include Walking in the Wind, If I Could Fly, Olivia, Stockholm Syndrome, Where Do Broken, Something Great, Happily, also see Through the Dark, 18, Fool's Gold, Once in a Lifetime, Fireproof, and What A Feeling for a small sampling of adult-friendly songs). The singles (and their management) may have pandered to their youngest fans, but they are enjoyable for older fans too...you just have to give them the chance.

Needless to say, I was really excited to see what Harry would do away from the constraints of his band and label. And he has truly flourished and quite literally blossomed as a solo artist. He's always been the quirky one and a solo album gives him the opportunity to shine. "The Pink Album" finds him (somewhat) exposed and vulnerable with his lyrics. As opposed to some fans, I don't dissect the lyrics looking for hidden meanings, but just listen for the enjoyment of some good music. And there are many standouts. In fact, the only one I tend to skip is "Sign of the Times" simply because I've heard it so much. There are plenty to chill to (Meet Me in the Hallway, Woman, From the Dining Table - WOW!), some sweet ones (Sweet Creature), and the rollicking ones (Carolina - current fave, Only Angel, Kiwi). The only complaint I have is on Ever Since New York, whose live version on Saturday Night Live, had some muscle behind it - the studio version is much more laid back, I kept waiting for the gritty vocals and his higher notes but they never came.

He's certainly not the first gender-bending artist but the aesthetic of the album suits him (he's already quite iconic and he's only 23). I truly think he's got "It" and has a lot of potential for someone so young. Don't dismiss him, give him a chance, he's quite the charmer and "Harry Styles" proves he's got the vocals and songwriting skills to go along with his hair, dimples, and high fashion!

I am soooooo upset I bought this mug for 2 huge reasons! First one to finally replace my large mug that broke, and secondly because I love harry potter. So the package comes and I about bolted out of my front door to get it due to the fact I am so pumped for it ( plus I am a coffeeholic) I open the box after thanking the ups driver who just brought me my new prizes posession, and but what do I find a mug which I look at curiously because this looks waaaaay to small to hold 20oz! So I am like huh i know i ordered the right thing let's put water in it and check with my measuring cup, guess what it tells me its 8 freaking ounces, now I am sitting here crying my eyes out because it's just not been a good year I had a set of twins one who has very serious medical needs and two it's the first thing I have broke down and purchased for myself in almost a year something solely for myself to enjoy and have my moment of peace and quiet in the morning while I prepare myself for the day which I never know what lies ahead in. I sure hope that this situation can be made right and people will get EXACTLY what they have ordered because we have all heard the horror stories about this issue of not getting what was described. You never know how much a simple product can mean to someone!

MacArthur's Luck: Part Two: Running the Table (The Fortunes of War Book 2)
Alright, this was not the most well-thought-out re-issuing of a previous version. Yes, the first 3 reviewers are correct, it's the last half of the previous full edition.

But I honestly don't see this as a "scam" - come on, this is A WHOLE THREE BUCKS! - some agent or tech made an honest mistake in not immediately explaining just what this version was (the large previous all-in-one somehow didn't work well in the Amazon publishing process). I regard MY $3 as a modest contribution to an author who gave us a book worth a lot more than that. And who damn sure won't make this mistake again.

And, it's/they are still a good book and really good alternate history.

It's a terrific value for someone coming to the series fresh.

I've pre-ordered Volume 3 and strongly encourage anyone with an interest in AH, or in good, thinking history in general, to get all 3 books. You'll have a great read, learn more than a little, and only be out seven dollars total. (Personally, I'm also looking forward to Beria getting his the same way Heydrich did ... one can hope.)
Count Your Way Out! Math Mazes (Dover Children's Activity Books)
Count Your Way Out! Math Mazes (Dover Children's Activity Books)
My two kids (age seven and eight) are homeschooling this year, and I'm using this book to incentivize their other schoolwork. When they've finished their math and reading and such they get to do mazes! There's a wide range of difficulty so there's really simple mazes and really challenging ones, depending on your kids' level. They start at about the five year old difficulty (or kindergarten) and go up to ten or eleven year old (or fifth grade) difficulty. I also really love the stories that go with these mazes, I get the kids to practice reading for practical reasons, and they feel like the mazes are 'just fun' even though they're practicing and learning logic and math skills. Great resource!

Artificial Intelligence & Data Science: 2 Books in 1: The Ultimate Beginner's Guide on Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Machine Learning
Artificial Intelligence & Data Science: 2 Books in 1: The Ultimate Beginner's Guide on Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Machine Learning
I am new to a job that has a lot of projects that utilize AI and ML. I was looking for a "for dummies" kind of resource that would get me spun up quickly. This was not it.
I bought the Audible version so I could listen on my commute. I have equal problems with the book/content and the narrator.

The narrator is so stilted sounding I actually wondered if the book was being read by some AI/automation program. But if it's a person, he's terrible. Several common words/names are misprounounced, the speed of reading is jerky and 'skips', and the tone of the reader is downright condescending at some places, and robotic in others. It's distracting and frustrating, and even if the book were well written, the narration would be enough for a 1-star review.

The book, and I admit I only made it about an hour or two in, is terribly written. Even after an hour+, I didn't learn anything, there's no real organization, and the content is extremely repetitive. Repetitive to the point that I wondered if my audio book had "skipped" because the same anecdote or example is given, using the same words, multiple times. The author lost all credibility with those errors.

This purchase made me vehemently wish I could return digital purchases. This was a huge waste of money/credit, and I don't recommend it for anyone.

気軽に組めるというコンセプトは良いです。従来の模型作りは手間がかかりますから。出来上がりもいい感じです。

注意点ははめ込みにくい部品が結構あること。私もかなり破損してしまいました。ライト含む顔回りはきちんと部品を奥まではめ込みましょう。でないとボディに取り付ける際にボディとの間にスキマが出来ます。私は顔回りのユニットを接着剤で固定してしまったので、どうして隙間ができるのか分析するためにもう一回ばらす過程で破損しました。

あとドアノブとタイヤ周りの黒い部品を折ってしまいました。ドアノブは両脇の突起が穴に入りにくいのでつい強く押した際に真ん中を押してしまいパキッとなりました。タイヤ周りの黒い部品は、一つの穴がどうしても入らず、穴を広げようとして一旦外すときに折れてしまいました。

大きな部品はスナップフィットでもはめやすいのですが、後半に増えてくる小さい部品はスナップフィットに向いていません。普通の接着剤を使う方が格段に楽です。したがって、最後の方は加速度的にストレスが溜まります。ダメそうだったら、じっくり穴を広げるなどしてやりましょう。結局壊れた部品が多過ぎて、カスタマーでそれぞれ買うと高くなりそうなので部品取り用にもう一個買ってしまいました。涙

I had no issues setting up this printer and I am basically a hapless Luddite. The only thing that stymied me was when the diagram told me to remove a piece of foam and tape inside the printer. Spent 10 minutes trying to find something that was not there. The printer is the quietest printer I have ever heard. You do not place the ink cartridges into the printer until you have charged up the battery, which took about an hour. There are only 2 ink cartridges for this printer. The exterior of one has a pink top and the other has a black top. You place each one next to its corresponding color inside the printer and pull the plastic piece whose color matches the cartridge over top of the cartridge until it snaps onto the two horizontal tabs on the top of the cartridge. You must com0lete either the online setup or the setup with the included disk for the scanner to work. I set up online since my laptop has no CD or DVD slot. The online setup worked well. You just sit back and let it do its thing. I only plan on using this printer when I travel so it will not get constant use. I like its compact size. It is so small it even qualifies for Sprint Airlines "personal item" to carry onboard without charge. UPDATE: I have taken this on 2 trips and TSA never asked to see it or have it turned on when I put it through screening at the airports. The printer works very well. I know I use it more on trips more than it is designed for, about 300 pages printed a week and the same number of pages scanned, (the manual says it is designed for 300 printed pages a month) but it has never jammed or even hiccupped. It is still new but with the heavy usage I think if there was a problem it would have surfaced by now.

I purchased this warranty package when I bought a bluetooth speaker. The speaker died in three months. I tried to get a refund from the manufacturer, but the warranty was voided just a few days before it died. I contacted this company, and filled out the information needed. When I submitted my claim, the website took me to a page that read: "Your item may be under warranty from the manufacturer," with no option to continue, or proceed with the claim. I am left with no other option, but to leave terrible reviews for, both, that bluetooth speaker, and this warranty package.

I LOVE the BeeGreen Reusable Shopping Bags! I’ve tried different reusable bags with varying success, but these are by far my favorite. The nylon material is strong, lightweight, and compact. They roll up so small that I can easily fit one in my jacket pocket or purse. My favorite things about this particular set are…
1. The zip up case keeps all the bags neat and organized. There are 10 bags in a case about the size of a makeup bag with a handy loop that hangs on my shopping cart. The case also keeps the bags tidy in the trunk of my car.
2. These bags hold A LOT. Since I have so many bags, I ask the cashier to pack them light, but there’s room to put in a lot more and the seams are reinforced, so I’m comfortable they won’t fall apart.
3. The bags have a sewn-in elastic to secure them when I roll up the bags. It’s so quick and easy, I actually roll the bags up as I put my groceries away rather then setting the bags aside to be rolled up “later.” :)
4. They hold up well in the washing machine, unlike other types of bags I used before I found BeeGreen bags.
5. They are CUTE!
Spinning in the Old Way: How (and Why) To Make Your Own Yarn With A High-Whorl Handspindle
Spinning in the Old Way: How (and Why) To Make Your Own Yarn With A High-Whorl Handspindle
I have several books on hand-spinning and this is THE best. My only complaint is lack of photos but that would jack up the price and isn't really necessary. The illustrations do a good job as is. I learned to spin on a high-whorl spindle by buying one and doing the spinny thing with my fingers - this book shows how you get WAY more spin by spinning it (in the old way!) up or down your thigh. At first this sounded hokey. I thought I had a good spin using my fingers. I was wrong. Now I'm a convert to thigh-spinning! (I know it sounds weird, but this author knows what she is talking about!)

The book also talks about how you can use cheap and inexpensive things as spinning tools. I like the author's idea of keeping it simple and portable. I also like the section on plying - lacking in a lot of books. The author actually tried a bunch of ways and rated them for ease, and then tells how to do it in the easiest way. That's useful.

I love the book and would recommend it to anyone. If you don't have a drop spindle yet, BUY THE BOOK FIRST, then shop for your spindle when you know something about the difference between a good, useful one and a bad one. I had to get rid of my first "beginner" spindle - it wobbled, had a bad hook, and no notch.

I purchased the first iPhone and has have had one ever since. From the first iPhone it was obvious a case was needed to protect your investment. While they have definitely become significantly tougher over the years particularly in its ability to survive immersion in water… Such an expensive vital tool that goes everywhere with us it pays to invest in the case. Quite literally as I have sold my last several iPhones on eBay recouping hundreds of dollars and one of the reasons I am able to do so is my phones have been in pristine condition even after 2 to 3 years of constant use and multiple drops.
A week ago I finally upgraded to the promax 12. And that same day I purchased a case this time on Amazon. I wanted a case ASAP and I needed to order within an hour so that The case would be here two days later ... I narrowed it down to 3 quickly and decided on this case. At 1495 I thought how can I go wrong if I don’t like it I’ll use it for a while and buy something different...
However I quickly realized this might be one of the best cases I’ve ever owned ..certainly for the money.
The last couple of iPhones I’ve owned I’ve utilized a rubberized slip on case with screen protector applied directly to the iPhone glass. Well a case that completely enclosed is the iPhone provide more protection they typically are both gear and add more width and weight send do you want any device you carry with you constantly.
But this case do utilizes too tough poly carbonate shields to enclose the front and back of the iPhone they are so thin and light weight they add almost no width or weight along the edges is the crucial bumper that absorbs the shock of a fall on the iPhones edge, it provides the crucial raised raised bumper in the front and back to protect the phone when face plants. And well the iPhones are much better at surviving complete immersion in water I still funeral more comfortable in situations where my self and my phone might end up in the water with an iPhone that’s encased completely.
Another nice feature of this case is that you can still see your iPhone while not critical when compared to protecting the device, the fact that people bought a particular color phones only to cover it up with a case always seemed pointless.
Compared to the slip on silicone cover I’ve used on my last several iPhones this case
1. Adds less weight and width
2. Does not require the extra cost and hassle of the screen protector
3. Provides additional protection by completely encasing the iPhone
4. Doesn’t “hide” the color of your phone
And it does this for $14.95!

Koomus Pro CD-M Universal CD Slot Magnetic Cradle-less Smartphone Car Mount Holder for all iPhone and Android Devices, Single
[UPDATE April 18, 2016: It has almost been 5 months since I have owned this product. I have been using this phone holder every day for my work commute (2hrs per day). I have kept it in the CD slot ever since I have bought it. I have been noticing some very minor color changes of the protective rubber coating. It appears that it has turned to a lighter grey color due to long-term sun exposure (does not look bad at all...mind you, this is just my inner critic observing things). We'll see how much the color changes as the hot summer days approach. Needless to say, this does not affect the form, fit or function. For those who are still skeptical about the magnets interfering/damaging the smartphone, be advised that there is no danger. I have been using the same iPhone since then and all of the features work as intended. No drop in GPS signal, cell coverage, Bluetooth signal, etc...it all works seamlessly, even while attached to the magnetic phone holder. I hope this update was helpful in relieving any doubts. I see that the price has dropped since I have gotten it. You'd be crazy to not give this product a try!
PS: I'm an engineer and I believe this is a well designed product. Very strong, durable and doesn't stick out too far to cause that unwanted pendulum "bobble" affect every time you hit a bump or crack in the road.
FYI: I did NOT receive this product for free from Koomus in the hopes of an unbiased review. This was bought with my own money. :-)

[ORIGINAL REVIEW (Dec. 5, 2015):
I purchased this Koomus Pro CD-M phone holder because I was looking for an easy way to mount my iPhone 6 in my car. To be honest, I was a bit skeptical of this magnetic contraption and how it would be inserted into the CD slot. I did a bunch of research into this model and the affects that magnets have on the modern smartphone. My results were that the magnet would not cause any damage to the phone. You do not have to worry about losing any files because your phone has SSD (solid state drive). I know that the average person would think that any magnet is bad for electronics. Computers with hard drives can be harmed by a strong enough magnet because hard drives use magnetism to store information. SSD's on phones (and now in many computers) do not use magnetism, rather they use semiconductor technology. Therefore, you have nothing to fear with this magnetic phone holder deleting any media on your phone. Also, this does not affect your GPS apps (Apple Maps or Google Maps). I use Google Maps and the magnet does not interfere with its functionality. The GPS uses satellites, not a compass, to navigate.

I have been using this phone holder every day for my hour commute to work since I've purchased it a week ago. I have an Otterbox Symmetry case on my phone and I put both metal plates between the phone and the case. The rubber coating on the magnet prevents any scratches. The phone will literally not come off of the holder unless you get into an accident or if someone knocks it off. I accidentally hit a few potholes this week and my phone didn't move at all. The ball-axis that the magnet sits on is firm as well and can be easily adjusted. The push button that keeps the holder fastened inside of the CD slot is firm and ensures a tight grip.

I am happy that I chose this phone holder. It takes zero effort to use and it is a lot more convenient than the standard phone holder with a spring-loaded claw. I would recommend this phone holder to anybody and everybody.

Let me say the packaging is great. Very classy. Makes you think tour getting some expensive product here. I added honey as I cannot stand the taste of licorice. I know this sounds dumb but it makes me gag. I am drinking in hopes it will help a sinus condition that I have been battling for years. I will admit without the honey it is not too bad of a taste but still hard for me to get down. Honey makes life easier

These semi-flavorless plastic lumps are my very favorite candy in the world. I knew, with 100% certainty, every jujubes carrying store in New Orleans. Once upon a time, approximately last year, I was having a bad day. I had been hit by several cars (New Orleans does not have good drivers), and was PMSing like nobodies businesses. I went to New Orlean’s 7 jujubes carrying drug stores. Nothing. I found a jujubes tracker online that said jujubes were near. They were not. I went to every drugstore and box store in New Orleans, Metairie, and Kenner. Jujubes were gone. I cried hysterically in a CVS parking lot. For a while I found a shop that sold jujubes filled cookies. I would buy the cookies and break the jujubes out and eat them. It was an expensive way to get a fix, and the jujubes were too soft after having been baked. My life was in shambles.

Thank you. After a year of searching, I finally found real, rock hard, filling ruining jujubes. I feel complete. Don’t you dare ever run out. Really. Wtf will I do then? Eat jujyfruits? Gross. Anyway, thanks!

**edit 10/2, nearly 4 months later; this is holding up 100,000,000,000x better than I’ve ever had a coir mat hold up after 3+ months. Not much shedding, and it’s the literal front door mat so it gets stepped on regularly. I’m going to apply another coat of the Scotchgard cans I used in my below review. Yay!**

...have you ever had these coir mats before, only to find that after a couple months outside they're shedding like crazy, faded beyond belief, and no longer look good whatsoever?

Yeah. Me too. My husband is positively sick of me purchasing door mats left and right, more than quarterly. I think he believes I just love throwing money in to the wind. After a while you realize you probably should have learned your lesson and stopped buying the same material.

Well, we're beekeepers now, first season as of 2020, and I wanted to add a touch of bee decor here and there... this mat showed up in my search on Amazon and I unfortunately feel head over heels in love with it. I typically try not to buy mats at a price point higher than $10-12 on sale at Target, JOANN, Homegoods, etc., but for $17 I decided I just needed to make it work. Now, there aren't any blogs or Pinterest posts I could find on how to lengthen the life of natural coir/coconut fiber mats that are out in the elements, especially in the sweltering heat of the Midwest (KCMO, where you at?!) -- so I decided I would chance it and use items on-hand to try and prolong the color and life of this. I took my two cans of Scotchgard, first one was the Water & Sun Shield, and gave it a good long spray over every fiber, twice over. Second one was Heavy Duty Water Shield, applied the same way I did the first can. Now, I've only had the mat out for a week, but we've had all kinds of weather already, enough to do some damage, and I'm thrilled to say it still looks brand new.

Since I stare at this little bundle of mat-love every day, I'll definitely be reminded to post updates every couple weeks or so. Stay tuned for those! It's absolutely adorable and I love it!
