  1. Episode 7 was really very bad. Kali's character was one-dimensional (+ wouldn't she have an American accent by now?) and her companions were just a collection of bad costumes/ hairstyles. Also, why bother putting on masks to commit crimes if you're going to have distinctive hair allowing you to be identified from a mile away? Everything the episode was trying to do was put into the dialogue very on-the-nose. It just didn't succeed. Better to skip 207 rather than try to imbue it with purpose/quality.

    Look for a soy milk that is B-12 fortified if you can't get around to buying/taking B-12 supplements. And pumpkin seeds have a decent amount of iron...

    I was trying to side-step suggesting that religion was a better cure than psychiatry. Enchantment to me can include a sense of excitement or a feeling that even if one is deluding oneself in creating a positive aura around something, it's ok. Still reading Moore's Jerusalem right now- seems pretty clear that he believes in predestination. Overall I'd take Jodorowsky as my oracle over Moore, as the latter is a bit more pessimistic.

    No joke I think we do suffer from a yearning for magic. Or the world loses its magic when you're depressed. Enchantments > diagnoses

    Alejandro Jodorowsky (dir. El Topo, The Holy Mountain) wrote a book about giving ritual or poetic tasks to people in psychic distress. It's called Psychomagic: The Transformative Power of Shamanic Psychotherapy. (only problem is some of the quests he prescribes could likely get a patient arrested...)

    Have yet to find what I consider to be a good therapist. Psychiatrists seem to just be all "mmm-hmm, mmm-hmm, here's your SSRI script" and therapists seem to mostly sit there when I talk and then offer insights that are transparently just an expression of their own filters. I think I'd be better off consulting with an all-seeing Oracle who could send me on a quest...

    Awesome. Awesome to the max.

    There's a happy phenomenon of people paying for the car behind them in the drive-through as a random act of kindness. I'm assuming that's what happened.
  8. Stoned Heart has noticed that Rory is nearly always filmed so as to conceal her body below the waist.
  9. RB2G stole a single black jelly bean from Jelly Belly headquarters in Fairfield, CA. Little did he know it was the one bean to rule them all and it is inexorably bending him to its master's will.

    (Spoilers) FX The Americans v.3

    Okay, so Episode 3 was pretty great and my Pastor Tim theory is wrong. Much better this way. Good thing I'm not writing this show.

    Uh yeah, exactly, just speculating. I never watch the promos as a rule, so I'm not sure how long they'll take to resolve the Pastor Tim plotline. Pretty sure it's not going to be "Ok Paige, I guess we'll have to go murder Pastor Tim as a family while the FBI agent next door babysits your brother."

    So in episode 3 we discover that Pastor Tim has been a KGB asset all along? Either from his mouth or Gabriel's? I thought we were going to get it when Elizabeth sat with Gabriel but they stuck with her mom's death and the germ warfare handoff SNAFU. "So, we're planning on killing this youth pastor our daughter outed us to, whaddaya think?" "Hold that thought, Nadezhda. He's one of ours." Guess that's not very dramatic. Hmmm.

    The Realms of Men need to get the alchemists working overtime on building wildfire reserves. You need to rig up towns, cities and holdfasts with wildfire so you have a last resort tactic to avoid swelling the ranks of the army of the dead. Burn yourself, save the realm!
