‘Jurassic World’ Review: The Park Is Open and Full of Dumb People

When all you care about is money, bad things happen. That’s the message of Jurassic World, where greedy theme-park executives hoping to spike attendance engineer the “Indominus Rex,” a genetically-modified dinosaur that immediately turns on its creators and runs amok. Designed as a cautionary tale about the dangers of building a meaner, badder monster purely for the sake of profits, Jurassic World works equally well as a cautionary tale about doing the same thing in movies. All of the rationalizations provided by Jurassic World’s employees — “Consumers want them bigger, louder, more teeth.” “Somebody’s gotta make sure this company has a future!” — could have been taken directly out of the mouths of the studio executives who approved this gene splice of a reboot and a sequel. Their creation — the Indominus or the movie, there’s basically no difference — is as advertised; huge, mean, and visually striking. But this experiment is not without consequences.

Rayman Reviews Get On Up, The Story of James Brown [REVIEW]

I'll admit doing a movie about legendary James Brown is appealing, it's also almost impossible to do it justice in a mere 2 hours and 20 minutes. That being said, I began watching with high hopes. After watching the flick, my only hope was to get my money back.

Take a Ride on the Lake Superior & Mississippi Railroad

Recently Mrs. Rayman, my brother in law Rick, and Gus went for a ride on the Lake Superior & Mississippi Railroad train. The route the train took was scenic, and everyone had a wonderful time. The coolest part of the whole trip though, was the kindness of the entire crew. The engineer and conductor were Gus's favorite, he still talks about them. They went out of their way to insure that everyone had a wonderful time.

Keith Richard’s Childrens Book ‘Gus and Me- The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar’ Hits the Stores Today

I'm really excited about this book for a couple reasons.

It's refreshing to see a side of Keith few people realize he has. The book is available today, September 9th.

Living The Blues, Canned Heat’s Story of Music, Drugs, Death, Sex and Survival [REVIEW)

Over the years I've read hundreds of books on music, but in all honesty, this is by far the best, and most thorough I've ever read. Where many other band books may briefly touch on the dark side of music, my friend, Fito de la Parra holds nothing back. He tells it exactly as it was, with brutal honesty.
