Emotional Plague: The Root of Human Evil
Emotional Plague: The Root of Human Evil
by Charles Konia, M.D.
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Truth, 24 Jun 2014
Medical orgonomy, orgonometric equations, functional thinking and armouring will come like seemingly random bolts out of the blue to any casual reader intrigued by the title and cover blurb of this exceptionally readable and well argued book. If you are reading this review and haven't purchased or begun to read 'The Emotional Plague' I would suggest that a well directed foray into the writings of Wilhelm Reich and a read through of Dr Elsworth Baker's 'Man in the Trap' would help you orientate yourself. Dr Konia is probably the most experienced and knowledgeable medical orgonomist currently practising today and although he provides a comprehensive introduction and orientation section at the start of 'The Emotional Plague' I suspect that for many readers previously unaware of orgonomy it may be insufficient for them to fully understand where he is coming from and why this book can help us all and generations to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful movie, 20 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Angel-A [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
A life-affirming tale about lost soul Andre (Jamel Debbouze) facing the truth about himself, making changes and painfully forcing himself to truthful action and a long overdue connection with reality - all with the help of a fabulous angel (Rie Rasmussen). Sounds heavy? Not a bit of it. It is a joy from beginning to end and the protagonists Andre and Angela are never less than engaging, endearing, sympathetic and real, oh, and Paris has never looked more beautiful. Recommended. You will laugh, you will cry, etc, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Into my arms!, 16 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Louise Bourgnoin as Adele carries this movie all the way with a quirky charm and charisma that brings to life perfectly the humour, bravery, determination and sex appeal of the eponymous author and adventurer. The other characters, part-human, part-cartoon in their appearance and mannerisms back her up to the hilt. It is full of little moments and facial expressions that kept me smiling and chuckling between the action packed CGI assisted scenes. Brilliant fun. Please bring Adele back for another fabulous adventure soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little more to say, 5 Aug 2013

This review is from: Room In Rome [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
This is a beautiful, complex, emotional movie that drew me in and made me feel I was actually in the hotel room with the characters. It is layered like an onion with a centre of rushing, gushing honest immediacy and a feel for what is truly real in life. I cried, I laughed and it made me feel simply wonderful. I won't ever forget this one. The final scene is genius. It's a little masterpiece.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old school war film with hidden depths, 30 July 2013
This review is from: White Tiger [DVD] (DVD)
This movie both annoyed and exhilarated me. Good production values, excellent acting and unpredictable twists and turns. I felt throughout that I must be missing some deep psychological undercurrents though and am still pondering the more mysterious elements of the story. It's a movie that stays with you for a while. The White Tiger itself is creepy in the extreme.

Yes they used real WW2 vintage vehicles plus, I would think, a modern tank, such as a Leopard I perhaps, with a suitably disguised superstructure, for the White Tiger itself. That is refreshing in itself in a world awash with CGI. After the final confrontation between the super human tank god worshipping Soviet tanker and the ghostly White Tiger, the movie appeared to start to sink under the weight of imagery and philosophy that I simply could not fathom. Something about the universality of war I think. Who knows? The final scene, whilst meaningful was something of an anti-climax. A good film none the less. I recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality and top value, 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For purely economic reasons, referred to sufficiently in other reviews, I recently ditched my multibladed, vibrating, lubed shaving 'system' in favour of a good quality trad safety razor and brush and some of these blades. After taking a few tips on how use a safety razor I am now completely sold on safety razor use and have actually started to enjoy the ritual of shaving again. These blades give me 7 to 10 good shaves - they might last longer but why risk a cut using a blunting blade? I thoroughly recommend them. Top quality and top value.

A nice looking, very reliable, budget price watch that muggers will probably be inclined not to rip off your wrist - and that's got to be a plus in this day and age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime swing, 8 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You won't find small combo swing performed better than this. Most of the numbers were recorded in the mid to late 1930s heyday of Goodman's big band and find the musicians at the pinnacle of their respective games ('in their pomp' as the young uns say nowadays). Many critics carp that Goodman's perfectionism robbed a fair old proportion of his big band recordings of the vitality that would otherwise have been theirs - maybe, but the band could still swing. That musical micro-management is not so evident in these trio and quartet recordings where Goodman was one amongst true equals when it came to musicianship. Marvel at the multi-talented Lionel Hampton, the supreme musicality of pianist Teddy Wilson's contribution, legendary Gene Krupa's powerhouse to feather-touch drive and sensitivity on the drums and of course old man Goodman's soaring, tooting, infinitely expansive clarinet. Wow!

This game might be white whiskered by now, but it still hasn't been topped for atmosphere and user friendliness. If you can get it, buy it. Recommended.


Where's the Truth?
Where's the Truth?
by Wilhelm Reich
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 27.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Reich - the forgotten saviour, 8 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Where's the Truth? (Hardcover)
The third and last in a trilogy of volumes of the forgotten natural scientist's diaries. Best to read the definitive biography on Reich by Myron Sharaf called 'Fury On Earth' before you read this. Taken alone or out of sequence and with no context or knowledge of Reich's work, this will probably make for a confusing read. Wilhelm Reich had had one hell of a life by the time these diary entries begin and things weren't about to get better for him. Mankind's fear about the work he was doing and the truths that work was revealing were escalating to make the scientist's final years difficult in the extreme. This comes over poignantly throughout 'Where's the Truth?'.
