  • Selling the upside of the Coffee habit. RealSimple (undated)
  • New movie. When I bookmarked the following Sci-Fi short film a few weeks ago, I had no idea it would resemble this Guillermo del Toro film: The Shape of Water. Remarkable. A theme and maybe a peek into our amphibious past/future/present. Review via The Atlantic
From the description: In a world choking on pollution, reliant upon oxygen masks for survival, a sea creature may be the key to humanity's survival. His name is "Adam" ... The Space Between Us

The film won four awards at the 2015 edition of the Scifi Film Festival in Australia.

Booked for January, 2018 - Paul Davids is back. This time he's sharing some of the wild stuff he experienced as a guinea pig in a CIA mind-control experiment.

John Selby and Paul Jeffrey Davids, the authors of Blowing America’s Mind: A True Story of Princeton, CIA Mind Control, LSD and Zen, were among Princeton University students in the late 1960’s who got tangled up in these secret experiments at the nearby New Jersey Neuro‐Psychiatric Institute’s Bureau of Research.

To paraphrase the language on their site, if it took the authors '50 years to de-condition their own minds and remember what was done to them at the Institute and Princeton in 1967, it might indicate the subversive power of memory-blocking research.' - Website
