Dead Medium

image

       Peter John is an up and coming author from Kent, Uk . Though he has enjoyed writing since boyhood he has only just started to devote more time to this craft. His new book, Dead Medium, is certainly a wonderful testament to the time he has spent. It’s a character driven , sometimes comical, and endlessly witty novel about a medium who dies and discovers that the dead want to talk to the living just as badly as we do them. May Elizabeth Trump must become a medium for the other side and deal with her own death as well, which makes for a page turner that keeps you wanting more with its originality and inspired plotline.
     Peter took the time to let me know exactly how he got started writing, it turns out it was a punishment at first, but one that opened his eyes to the love of writing down your own ideas. As it turns out he gathered his inspiration for this story when he took a family member to see a medium, while there he sat pondering about what may be going on inside the room they were in, and one thing led to another until May Elizabeth Trump was born! Apparently although she can speak to the dead she is still cynical about things unproven. May insists on fact over ideals and her cynical nature is part of her charm.
       Dead Medium is a book that you for sure don’t want to skip up. Right now its on sale for kindle at the awesome price of $2.99! So for under 5 bucks you could be finding out exactly how it is that a dead medium does get in touch with the living? What barriers does that break down? How much faith does it bring to those living to know of life after death? Guess you’ll have read and ring out…

The Simpsons tapped out is a freemium game. Free to download and play, but with purchases that you can make in the game to enhance your gameplay. The donuts in the game are what costs money, and without them you do miss out on some cool stuff, but what you get free is still totally worth playing for. I myself am a player at level 43. I have been playing for a little over a year and so far have gained about forty characters and tons of free items just for playing. They give friend points in the game for clicking on houses in your friends town each day, so far I’ve won five friend point prizes just for clicking! The Simpsons is so popular because of the references to the show in the game. You get the actual buildings, characters, and even pets from the series in your own town. The characters can make you money when you send them on “quests” and you buy land expansions, houses, and other things that the game explains along the way. By far the best character has been the shows creator Matt Groening. He comes into the game late but the interaction between homer and himself is priceless.

When you start, you have literally nothing but trash from a nuclear waste fallout, Homer cleans up the waste and you get to building Springfield back into existence. You find characters along the way as you’re building your town and they help you out, while complaining a bit. Soon your town starts to look like it could actually be a place to go. A sense of accomplishment washes over you, comfort knowing that you’re an amazing game player. Miraculously you did it all without having to spend any of your hard earned cash unless you just wanna. I hope more people start playing it really is an awesome game. Just look at what your town can be!

So go now to your local app store/center and download The Simpsons Tapped Out, start tapping, and feel the smile that’s on your face…..you’re welcome 🙂

Up-cycled fork bracelets that will amaze you.

image

John Marchello is from Ann Arbor, Michigan and he spends a lot of his time crafting stunning pieces of jewelry from old silver forks and spoons. He makes bracelets, rings, and art out his repurposed stock, and has sold almost 12,000 of his creations on Etsy. How truly inspiring is it that he can take some so simple and make you think about it for days just with a glance? My breath was truly taken away when I read that these beautiful bracelets were being made from average forks. The best part is, its affordable! His creations range in price from $20 to $100 and are worth every cent. No doubt I will be owning one as soon as humanly possible and it will be something that I cherish for a long time. It isn’t often that someone is so insanely creative, and John has taken it to the next step. I think one of his spoon rings would be perfect for a promise ring! Of course you know I had to include a link so you guys can go order for yourselves! Here is his shop link: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MarchelloArt

Snow White…The Mirrors Revenge

                           Jay Hartlove- Writer

So what’s the rest of Snow Whites story? We have all been dying to know, and Jay Hartlove has given us his answer in his screenplay continuing the classic Grimms fairy tale with his own brand of twists and turns. He has brought to life a musical in which the real villain in Snow Whites world is a revenge seeking mirror previously thought to have been on Snow Whites side. In the mirror is the trapped soul of a sorcerer bent on revenge against Snow White for the sins of her father.
Along with a great plotline this play will also be graced with the musical stylings of Kristoph Klover and Margaret Davis of the Celtic fusion band, Avalon Rising, as well as an original track done by Roman opera star Alexandra Montani. To learn more about Avalon Rising click here: http://www.flowinglass.com/avalon/.

With a wide variety of cast and crew members it’s sure to make a colorful play, as well as likable if only because it plays on our sentiment for the original story of Snow White. I am sure that they won’t have any trouble filling seats once it starts playing in the theater. It’s uniqueness and originality are sure to set it apart from whatever the mainstream is up to these days. I say bravo to you all, break a leg! I am sure we will be hearing from you in the near future and I can’t wait to see how You’ll be doing.

Current Country

Ryan Lee is a native of the small town of Cherokee Village , Ar. He has spent most of his life on country back roads and in creeks up to his knees, so when he said his dream was to sing country music, there wasn’t much surprise from the people around home. The question seemed to be whether or not he would succeed as a country music artist. “A lot of people have told me it’s never gonna happen” he says, but in the past couple years he is slowly but surely proving them wrong. He has a new hit single that he has debuted on not just one but two radio stations. The single is called “Don’t let this moment pass”, its a duet sang by Ryan Lee and Alison Heath, a Missouri native who lent her inspiring vocals to the track and made it into the well rounded song that its become. Ryan says “Alison has a great voice, we were both so excited to sing this song together, and she just takes it to a whole new level and really makes it great”. Ryan also has a solo single called “Chains” which he says is one of the songs closest to his heart. He can’t say everything that he has going on, but he is a liberty to say that he is only going up from here. You can stop by Ryan’s Facebook page and give him a like by going to : https://m.facebook.com/RyanHammArtist . (Lee is his middle name) I am really looking forward to more music from him in the future, make sure we show him some support guys! Good luck Ryan.

Here is the link to Ryan Lee’s sound cloud page, where you can hear both of the singles I’ve mentioned. : https://m.soundcloud.com/ryan_hamm/ryan-lee-dont
