Stay Inspired During Hard Times 

Ways to stay inspired in Quarantine.  

Part 1 

Isolation for some people can be very depressing. Is it because those people haven’t learned to sit in silence and embrace themselves ? I have always adored being alone in my room with my thoughts. I feel deeply that my thoughts are my friends and my feelings are my companions. The most crucial part of Quarantine is searching for your piece of happiness within your own four walls. Remember what it was like to play make believe ? Let the world be your stage and perform for your four walls. Nurture your fears, worries, childhood heartbreaks. Write love letters to the moon and fold them up and put them under your pillow. Or write a letter of thank yous to God, Mother Earth, a friend, a parent, or your future self. Reflect on all of your accomplishments and put on a record and dance freely in your room. Commit to finishing those books that have been on your shelf for ages. Hug your dog closely and with your touch show them how special they really are. Make your room your sanctuary. Your room is a womb, a cocoon. When the world feels as though it’s ending your room will hold you. You are blessed if you have a home, a family, a friend, unconditional love, water, food and your health. Our life is what we make of it. Isolation could either be a depressing slumber or it can be an awakening filled wonderland. Reach for the stars and please never give up on your dreams. The dream you had when you were little and when you still believed. Please live out that dream for that little you.  

Part 2 

Lately I have been having the most vivid nightmares and I think so much of it stems from the fear of the unknown. In my book titled Emotional Overdose I talk in detail about the pain that dwells within my heart about the unknown. It will be out later this year. The unknown will always be what pains me. Where my anxiety stems from. I believe that dreams truly are the closest gateway to ones soul. I believe that if you learn how to dissect them and to analyze them you are gifted. Dreams are the most insightful psychologically, cinematic, in depth way to decode your heart and mind. Dreams are filled with symbolism. During this quarantine I encourage you to write down your dreams. Keep a dream log. Whether it be a dream app, a journal or notes in your phone. When a dream or nightmare moves you good or bad write it down. My dreams are prophecies and I am barely tapping into the power they have. They are little blessings that have tried to warn me about future experiences I would have to endure. Write dates down and every detail you can remember. Dreams are a crystal ball if you allow yourself to take the imagery to heart and seriously. I hope your dreams are filled with so much love and hope. Please remember that the beast within your dreams isn’t real.  

The following is a short excerpt from my short story about dreams.  

A catholic school girl ditches class and ends up in the Underworld. Made up of pastels and 6 eyed freaks. The tangerine monster wraps his tongue around her neck creating a noose. She is swallowed whole and makes a bed inside the belly of the beast. She sleeps without nightmares now. For she has looked into the eyes of her darkest fears.  

Part 3  

In this time get to know your pet on a deep soul level. Take your dog on a walk and talk to them. Have a picnic with them in your backyard and give them a head massage. When I give my little dog V a head or neck massage I see him relax and it is so rewarding. I talk to him all the time and I tell him that I love him. Give your pet that long bath they are in need of. Make doggy treats that you think they would enjoy. Devote an hour a day to fully focusing on your pet and giving them a dose of the love they give you.  

Love and light

The Joker 

The Joker: Movie Review

By: Starla Starshine


I feel deeply that in every lifetime I’d be a clown. Since I was tiny I was a clown. I 
believe that all true performers are clowns. One of my greatest inspirations from 
the time I was five was Lucille Ball. I love Lucy has been my sunshine on the 
bluest days. Sammy Davis Jr. said “God wanted the world to laugh and he 
invented you Lucy.” Thats all I have ever wanted to be for humanity. I remember 
being in high school and feeling depressed. I would get through sixth period by 
looking forward to when I got home. So that I could eat pizza and watch I Love 
Lucy. I love her dearly as my Mother Clown. The people who know me best know 
that I will sing and dance in public and I will talk in different accents to strangers 
and that is my souls medicine. I am the eternal jokester. I find so little in life 
pleasurable. But being silly and loud and free has always been my serenity. 
Clowns are selfless. They will put on a mask and they will sing a song or dance 
just so that you don’t have to feel the way they do inside. I don't think I have ever 
known anything as poetic as that. Tragedy and comedy blend together like a 
pastel day dream. 
I adore very few modern day actors. Joaquin Phoenix is my favorite. His portrayal 
in the newest Joker film is absolutely exquisite. I could watch him dance on 
screen forever. Cinematically it is everything I long for in a film. He plays Arthur 
Fleck a clown who dreams of dabbling in Stand up. Arthur has a laughing 
condition. At times he breaks out in a maniac like laughter that he cannot control. 
People think that he is laughing at them or having some kind of breakdown. It hits 
home for me because my brother has a type of seizure that looks like he is 
laughing intensely. It looks like he has just heard the funniest joke in his life but 
really he is having a seizure. It has given me PTSD. I am so sensitive to him 
laughing now. I see my mom also struggle with PTSD from witnessing his 
laughing seizures. Something in his brain is set off and its like every emotion 
comes out on his face at once. But he isn't laughing he is struggling. It is a very 
hard thing to witness. I feel for Arthur walking around in the world with no one by 
his side. All he has is a little card he holds up when the laughing is really bad. No 
one to protect him or to be his voice when he cannot speak. The people in the 
film aren't empathetic. They look at him like he's a freak. I will always be hyper 
sensitive to the underdogs of society. 
We as people have to treat the broken like they are a walking miracle. Because 
they could've killed themselves and they didn’t. I heard Steve Jobs say something 
about how once we are 25 we become guardians of The Earth. I believe that so 
much. We are very responsible for the vibrations we give off. For the love that we 
give. You can’t be an asshole all of your life. It’s time to grow up. To care about 
who you are in a society that depends on love and kindness towards one another. 
Compassion is sometimes all a human being is searching for. It is what Arthur 
was craving most in life. 
He struggles with mental health and the system doesn't do much to help him. He 
is bullied the entire film and finally he snaps. He shoots his bully right in the 
head. Who is to blame ? Is it his healthcare ? Is it his sick and deranged mother ? 
Or is it all the different people who made him feel so small. Who made his 
existence into a joke. When all he wanted was to be seen. I am repulsed by what 
bullying does to people. Do better as people and treat people as sensitive souls 
who… might be on the verge of losing it at any moment. Best film I’ve seen in 
ages. His wardrobe, green hair and clown makeup is truly to die for. Joaquin 
Phoenix dressed like a clown dancing on the verge of insanity.. it doesn't get 
better than that.

Handmaids Tale- Movie Review By Starla Starshine 

Handmaids Tale 

Three years ago I was in an elevator at the Beverly Center with Elizabeth Moss. It was right before Handmaids Tale season 1 came out. Now it’s my favorite show and basically the only show I’ll re watch for fun. I’ve always been so fascinated with cults. Is it because I have never understood why anyone would believe anyone 100 percent ? I feel that I am so alpha that hardly anything in life could get me to submit fully. Cults and religions are made up of delusions and fear. Delusional sheep are god awful to be around (pun intended) I wonder what made these people so susceptible to being brainwashed ? What makes a person abandon everything they once knew and submit to someone else’s propaganda ? Charles Manson looked like someone’s creepy uncle waiting to molest you and call you his special girl. I’d understand like a little... if he looked like Jim Morrison and spoke of only peace and love and gentle poetic rebellion. But who would follow a Charles Manson ? A lost child wanting to belong ? The truth is the world is run by Charles Manson’s. They come in all different shapes and sizes. It’s not the “Devil” you have to be worried about. It is people all around us. People masquerading themselves as lovers, as dreamers, as politicians. From the time we are tiny we are taught to obey. But I’m here to remind the children and people in general to question everything. Question authority and why authority feels the need to demean your thoughts and ideas. Question “leaders”, question politicians, question the beliefs you have been conditioned at any age to believe. This does not mean become an extremist who hates one political party. This means let your brain bloom and do not let yourself be conditioned by ANYTHING. The media is a cult, politicians should always be questioned. Pastors, priests, bishops, saints should all be questioned. Do not become a sheep who is blind to freedom of thought and freedom of expression. Let your rebellion against society and the patriarchy be about love and not about revenge. Write a poem, sing a song, seek an asylum that helps you heal and does not manipulate you. In my book Emotional Overdose I write about a girl whose life was severely disturbed by a religious father who behaved like Jim Jones. The Handmaids Tale isn’t some crazy show that liberals and feminists created because they are crazy. It’s very much a true story that so many women are currently still living in, in 2019. Women aren’t free everywhere. They are still slaves in so many religions. They are still treated like second class citizens and they are the ones who are in pain. Be the June from Handmaids Tale in your own life and reach out and protect each other and look out for the children. She’s a beautiful fictional example of how we all should be. She is selfless and she is resilient and she understands what power she has to change the lives of so many women and children. Be like June. I adore Elizabeth Mosses portrayal of June Osbourne. I aspire to be more like her character.

Emotional Overdose 

Brief Synopsis  
Paragraph 1 is a brief explanation of why Starla spirals into madness. Here i mention the 
medical terms for what she was experiencing. Such as Hypochondria, PTSD, Generalized 
Anxiety Disorder, Panic Attacks, Insomnia and Back pains brought on by all of the above. 
I give a brief mention of Starla’s brother “Sheridan” and his trials and Epilepsy Diagnoses. 
Paragraph 2 I list some of the main characters that are the most cinematic and climactic. 
Paragraph 2 is all about Starla’s 51/51 hold at the psych ward and rehab visits. 
Paragraph 3 is all about the Birth of Starla. The moment A Star(La) is born. This is where 
Starla will give her huge performance. This is the end of the film. Here we will create Starla’s 
Disco for the Damned (a modern day version of studio 54 meets Rodney’s English Disco) 
Rodney is the famous DJ who is iconic at K.R.O.Q. He is the DJ who first played Starla’s music 
when she was 15. If we are lucky we can get him to be in the film. He was like a Dad to Starla. 
He can introduce Starla just like he has introduced countless Rock Stars on stage. The 
atmosphere will be the most happening spot, a place where all inhibitions are left at the door 
and beautiful and weird looking hippy, Vampire, Tranny, muses unite. My dream feel for Starla’s 
Disco for the Damned is a place where fairies and humans collide. They will all be “Starshine 
children”. Like modern day flower children. Starla's Disco for The Damned is Starla’s own 
club that births the ERA OF STARLA. 
SYNOPSIS 
Starla Starshine is a singer and performer at the peak of her youth and rise of her career, 
when everything comes crashing down due to a decade of emotional disturbances and 
depression. Starla has been able to bottle her pain and mental illness up until her big brother 
Sheridan is diagnosed with Epilepsy. This is the moment Starla descends into madness 
because she can no longer pretend to be ok. Sheridan has also dealt with a decade of feeling ill 
and having a weak immune system. He has spent all of high school in an out of the hospital. He 
has been a medical anomaly up until his Gran Mal seizure. As Sheridan convulses on the floor 
the light and spark in Starla’s life turns to darkness. For all Starla has ever known for comfort 
besides her parents is her big brother Sheridan. Starla’s mental health reaches an all time low 
when her Hypochondria and PTSD are combined. Starla lives in constant fear she will also 
suffer from Epilepsy. Epilepsy is her biggest fear because it is the epitome of losing all control. 
This is the start of level ten panic attacks and back pains brought on by extreme stress. She 
spends the majority of her nights in hell or by the toilet vomiting because the physical pain 
accompanied by the emotional pain is unbearable. Starla is 20 years old and she is witnessing 
her big brothers demise along with her own. Starla and Sheridan like twins feel so deeply for 
each other. When one is happy the other is happy. When one falls they both fall. The two spiral 
together and Starla’s mother Maura runs from one room to the other trying to make sure one of 
her children doesn’t die or give up. A mother is only as happy as her saddest child. With both 
her children struggling to stay alive, Maura gives up her career and becomes a full time mom 
and nurse to her children. 
Starla spends her nights in her bathtub with excruciating back pain. Insomnia, Anxiety, PTSD 
and Hypochondria are Starla’s world and only friends. She begins to isolate herself until she no 
longer leaves her home. She remains in a heavily medicated world without dreams. Starla is in 
permanent fight or flight mode. This is when Starla’s madness escalates and leads her to 51/50 
hold, psych ward stays and rehab visits. This is where we are introduced to a motley crew of 
beautifully, demented and broken characters. Like Ro the girl in love with the girl inside of her 
head. Like Midge the lady with DID Dissociative Identity Disorder who suffers from alcoholism 
and refuses to let go of the people, “the alters”, who live inside of her. Like Jane the girl who 
grew up with a Jim Jones type father. The fanaticism and mentally disturbed side of religion and 
control lead Jane to create her own reality. She created her own escape, in the form of a man 
named Jim. A man, the love of her life, who only Jane can see. Like Warren and Peyote two 
dream boats on a ship sailing to a psychedelic sunset that is nowhere near reality. We sail away 
with these young people who have lives interrupted by an emotional overdose of feelings and 
experiences. Here we see Starla navigating her own demons and attempting to stay sane even 
though she is surrounded by people who have gone mad. Here we see the inner workings of 
mental hospitals and the blurry lines between staff and patients. Starla’s only addiction is 
escapism and here we see how that alone almost destroyed her. She begins to come down and 
panic when the high of running away loses its thrill. The walls of the dreamy beach house begin 
to close in on her and she realizes quickly nowhere on earth is as safe or as green as her 
childhood home she runs away from. 
Starla hitchhikes home. She writes and records an album called Starla’s Disco for the Damned. 
It is her love letter to the broken. Starla is born. She is the living, breathing, human embodiment 
of starlight. Starla performs her song Alive and gives a theatrical, moving performance. Sheridan 
and Maura are in the audience. Starla and Sheridan look at one another and that is the last 
frame of the film. That moment symbolizes the re brith of both character lives.

 

Podcast Brief 

Torvad and Starla join forces to collaborate on a Podcast dedicated to all things entertainment. While also shedding a light on mental health struggles and Epilepsy awareness. The witty banter of these two siblings is what sets them apart from others. They are extreme opposites who share the same love for being one another’s greatest and life longest friend. Torvad is a gentle introvert with a love for terrible films and gaming. Starla is an in your face, extrovert who is a lover of dramas and art films. Torvad suffers from epilepsy and Starla suffers for him. When one of them is down they are both down. This podcast is a celebration of life. When Torvad was in a coma for ten days Starla sang to him. She told him to wake up because it was only a bad dream. She said she would be waiting for him. This podcast is for all of the broken hearted people who are now waking up from a long terrible dream. The dream is now.

THE TORVAD & STARLA PODCAST TRASCRIPT 

spl1_ 

welcome mortal to the realm of Torvad, the invincible Dragon and my sister Starla, the mortal where we do our podcast. Now take a seat because you're stuck here. So grab a snack. Just don't take my cheesets. It's because those are mine. 

spk_0 

Hi, everyone. I'm so happy to be here with my brother today. I'm here to bring you all the latest news and health and entertainment. When we started planning our podcasts, we had no idea we would be hit with the quarantine ordered by the government. We don't want to talk about the virus or what's going on because we know you already get an earful of it daily. Please stay strong pause that have been safe. Actually, we're gonna share lives and talk about different ways to survive trials in our lives. 

spk_1 

Well, at least you made things some positive, that's for sure. So even better, I'm gonna be talking about terrible movies and a lot of other fun things in the industry. So let's get started. 

spk_0 

This is our first podcast. So you will be learning a little bit about us and who we are and why we decided to do this. 

spk_1 

Okay, So tell me a little background about yourself. 

spk_0 

I'm a singer songwriter. I've been singing since I was 13 and I wrote my first song at 13. I've studied film at U. C. L. A. I'm really passionate about film and music together, and I'm going to be releasing my second album in December. I'm also going to be releasing a book about people who deal with all different mental health struggles, and that's gonna be called emotional overdose. 

spk_1 

And what compelled you to get into the music and film industry? 

spk_0 

I think it's just something that chooses you. I don't think that you really choose it, because it's not something that's really fun or something that's obviously easy. It's really hard work. And from the time I was five, I remember I would be in a car and I would just imagine me on stage what close I'd be wearing, what music I'd be singing. And I was really directing my own little film, my own stage performance and who is 

spk_1 

your favorite director and why 

spk_0 

I have bases with directors. So I'm actually much more moved by actors than I am directors, because for me, the actors everything 

spk_1 

and what profession would you have chosen if you wouldn't be in this industry? 

spk_0 

You know, I've only ever thought of being a singer and songwriter or working on film sets. But I think if I wasn't doing what I'm doing, then I think I would have done something with true crime. I think I'd really want to delve into the minds of serial killers. I would definitely do something with that. 

spk_1 

I think that'd be pretty fun, actually, because there's so much going on in the industry, too. And also, if heaven existed, what would you want God to tell you? When you go up to those gates? 

spk_0 

I think I would want him to say that I did a really good job. 

spk_1 

I wouldn't doubt that he's going to say that 

spk_0 

and that it's all gonna be a good time once you got there. 

spk_1 

Yeah, well, I'm sure he won't have any issues with telling you that you did a great job. So 

spk_0 

thank you, I hope. Ok, now it's time for Tor bad my brother to answer some questions. What inspired you to start your own podcast? And who do you take inspiration from? In the industry? 

spk_1 

Well, with lost celebrities. They got inspired by different people that they grew up with. And in my situation I would usually be in the car and listen different people in radio and they were able to talk about whatever was on their mind. That was really cool, actually, to be able to express yourself, however you want to. So I think that's definitely were started. 

spk_0 

Yeah, I think that it's interesting that the podcasts world, I think that it's made for the introvert, and it's this whole avenue now of people who had so much to say. But, you know, they didn't necessarily want to be out and about saying it 

spk_1 

well, especially if you're in school. You are very shy and you don't know how people are gonna interpret what you say. So you stay quiet for the most time, like I did and I usually just was around my friends, and that's how I express myself because everyone had their own way to live, and I just was very shy in that sense. But radio, you can do ever and say whatever you want, and you're gonna have an audience for that reason. And I thought that was really cool. 

spk_0 

I don't know how we came from the same mom, because my whole life I have been so unfiltered and I've always had toe watch what I say because I didn't have any fear of saying what I wanted to say. 

spk_1 

I couldn't agree more that honestly, 

spk_0 

you've seen me say what I have to say so many times, and it's like, Why did I say that? So if you could sit in a room all day and speak with one person that are alive, who would it be? 

spk_1 

I'd have to say it would be the Crocodile Hunter because I was always a fan of how he could go out and see all the different animals and just have different adventures being able to save different endangered animals. And I always wanted to be that kind of person to be able to save different things that were out there that were endangered. And to have that energy and love that he had for them. I definitely would love to be there 

spk_0 

were would you be scared, though toe like a wrestle a crocodile? 

spk_1 

Honestly, I see it as an opportunity more than anything because once you learn exactly how to tackle the situation. It really isn't as dangerous as you think is, especially since crocodiles they have a hard time opening up their jaws. So that's why when you put tape around them, their jaw muscles are actually really weak. So once you have them secured, they aren't a problem at all. 

spk_0 

But why are we taping them? 

spk_1 

You take them so that they don't have a chance to maneuver their heads in order to move or bite you. 

spk_0 

Yeah, but why? Just what? Why are we doing it though? 

spk_1 

Just to move them from one place to another? Maybe you don't want them to that location. Oh, yeah. Yeah. So it's just one of those things were It's just a safety precaution. Just like arresting someone in putting handcuffs on them. 

spk_0 

Yeah. I mean, my dream in life has always been toe hold the tiger cub. You know, now with the Tiger King documentary knowing what the breeders dio and you know me wanting to hold that cub for a minute when that cub ages out, which is six months and up, you know, sometimes they get rid of them. For me, it's not worth that. I'm so tourney. Because I always wanted to go to this one place in Myrtle Beach. Benigno. It's run by this weird cult leader who won the Cubs age out Cubs, you know, aren't there anymore. 

spk_1 

Well, it just depends on where you're looking, Teoh. See the Cubs also, Unfortunately, yeah, a lot of them are mistreated in different areas. But you just have to know and research different places where you can see them in whatever way you can. 

spk_0 

But this was the place that I, you know that people know to go dio, but now it's exposed. Yeah, I was actually rated in December of 2019. So we'll see how long these places stay. 

spk_1 

Yeah, well, there's always volunteering at zoos and stuff also 

spk_0 

that they're mistreated there, so I wouldn't want to go there. 

spk_1 

Well, you could always go to Africa and go on a safari, 

spk_0 

and I'll be eaten. 

spk_1 

Well, I never said it was gonna be safe either. 

spk_0 

See, there isn't. I just wish there was one place on earth that was so ethical that was so loving that was so nurturing. Just one of these places, you know, that's all about protecting the species, not breeding them for $2000 just discarding them when they're not a baby anymore. I do share a passion for the animals. 

spk_1 

I say you could go to Canada. 

spk_0 

I want to go. Just in general. I want to live in Canada. 

spk_1 

They have maple syrup. They're all the maple syrup you would want. Okay, 

spk_0 

We're not talking about food. Well, we're not know. Oh, okay. My whole life, he fantasizes about food. I'll be talking about something, and then he just decides to talk about food. 

spk_1 

I like Golden Corral. They have a lot of food. 

spk_0 

Let's like my biggest fear in life when I was little. I don't know. For some reason, I don't know if my soul is just the most dramatic Bujji human who ever lived like I'm pretty sure I'm Joshua Gabor. I don't know if in my past life I had to eat buffet food every day and I'm just repulsed by or in my past life, I was a queen. But ever since I was a little, I didn't know the difference of, like, above bay and, you know, a super super super nice restaurant. But I just remember my brother love to go to hometown buffet. He just loved it. And I was just like, There's nothing for me to eat here. 

spk_1 

Well, you don't know what's good. 

spk_0 

No lie until I don't I don't really want to be anywhere where they're like going to give me my piece of ham from the pig. 

spk_1 

Well, I guess we'll just settle with Taco Bellman. 

spk_0 

I don't want to go there, but let's see, What does her epilepsy diagnosis mean to you? 

spk_1 

Well, it means that I have to fight even mawr in order to get through life. Because there's a lot that I'm gonna have to go through and get better at because there's a lot of limitations that I have at this point. And I just have to be happy that I'm in the position time in because I could be dead. A lot of people are not given that chance again. 

spk_0 

Yeah, you're definitely gonna have toe share your journey and everything you've been through the past 10 years with with epilepsy. Do you have any comforting advice that you give to people with this condition? Well, 

spk_1 

I would definitely say that you have to try and not be stressed too much because epilepsy, of course it comes from your brain and hyperventilation is one of the biggest causes off getting seizures. And so you have to avoid stressful situations, especially. And in my case, it was a lot of family tension. It was a lot of dramatic issues that happened in life, financial things. It was just too much for me to handle for the longest time. We're after a while, I didn't know I was gonna have seizures until they finally happened. And while eventually once they do happen, then you know that you need to get them fixed. That's easiest thing. Luckily, um, because it's so tough when you don't know that they're gonna happen. Because once they do happen, that's the scariest moment. So just try and be as calm as possible. That's really all you can dio. At this point, 

spk_0 

you're definitely gonna have to devote a whole podcast on your 10 year journey. But I've seen you go through everything, and I've never seen anyone with an outlook like yours. 

spk_1 

Yeah, that's for sure. 

spk_0 

What superpower would you have if you could have one? 

spk_1 

Um, I would have to say that I would like to have super strength. 

spk_0 

You already have super strain. 

spk_1 

Well, I know, but no more super strength. You 

spk_0 

could literally chuck me to Africa. 

spk_1 

Well, in this case, I'd like to be able to save people and be able to lift cars and just be able to help people in different situations. Like if a building is falling down, I can at least hold the building long enough for people to get out of it. Things like that that people wouldn't be able to normally do. I would think that would be one of the best things for sure, especially if you're in construction or something. Whereas it's a lot harder to be ableto lift things. Well, I would naturally like to be able to help those people to make things a lot easier. 

spk_0 

Yeah, that's true. I would want to care a broken heart. What color is your aura? 

spk_1 

Mine, I have to say, is green because not only do I love the color green, but it comforts me also is a color that represents health, nature, animals, and it definitely suits me. I would think. 

spk_0 

I think my aura changes colors a lot, but I definitely have always been moved the most by dark blue. And I think it's my love for water 

spk_1 

and my eye color 

spk_0 

guy. Your eyes are green blue. 

spk_1 

Well, it's a good combination. 

spk_0 

Do you believe in love at first sight? I 

spk_1 

definitely think that there is that situation that happens because I've seen it many times and I've seen many people on Lee be with one person in life, So I definitely think that that's true. It doesn't happen for everyone, but it is definitely there. 

spk_0 

Yeah, I believe that to do you believe in reincarnation, and if so, what would you dream of being? 

spk_1 

I do, and I definitely want to be a shark. 

spk_0 

Also, you want to be a shark, and I want to be a blue whale. So I will see you around OK, in the next life. 

spk_1 

That could definitely be interesting. Well, that was fun. 

spk_0 

So I'm gonna review Handmaid's Tale. Three years ago, I was in an elevator at the Beverly Center with Elizabeth Moss. It was right before Handmaid's tale. Season one came out, I think around then. Now it's my favorite show and basically the only show I'll rewatch for fun I've always been so fast. The needed with colts. Is it because I've never really understood why anyone would believe anyone 100%? I feel that because I'm so Alfa and set in my ideas, hardly anything in life could make me submit fully. Colts and religions are made up of delusions and fears. Delusional sheep are God awful pun intended. I wonder what made these people so susceptible to being brainwashed? What makes a person abandoned everything they once knew and submit to someone else's propaganda? Charles Manson looked like someone's creepy uncle waiting to molest you and call you a special girl. I'd understand a little if you look like I don't know Jim Morrison and spoke of only peace and love and a gentle, poetic rebellion. But who would follow a Manson? Ah, lost child wanting toe belong. The truth is, the world is run by Manson's. They come in all different shapes and sizes. It's not the devil you have to be worried about. It's the people all around us, people masquerading themselves as lovers, as dreamers, as politicians from the time we were tiny were taught to obey. But I'm here to remind the Children and people in general to question everything. Question authority and why authority feels the need to demean your thoughts and ideas. Question leaders question. Politicians question the beliefs. You have been conditioned at a very young age to believe this doesn't mean become an extremist who hates one political party. This means let your brain bloom and do not let yourself be conditioned by anything. The media is a colt politician should always be questioned. Pastors, priests, bishops ST Should all be question. Do not become a sheep who is blind to freedom of thought and freedom of expression. Let your rebellion against society be about love and not about revenge. Write a poem. Sing a song seeking asylum that helps you heal and does not manipulate you. In my book Emotional Overdose, I write about a girl whose life was severely disturbed by a religious father who behaved like Jim Jones. The Handmaid's Tale isn't some crazy show that liberals and feminists created because they're crazy. It's very much a true story that so many women are currently still living in 2000 and 20 women aren't free everywhere. They're still slaves in so many religions, there still treated like second class citizens, and they're the ones who are in pain. Be the June from Handmaid's Tale in Your Own life and reach out and protect each other and look out for the Children. June is a beautiful fictional example of how we all should be. She's selfless and she was resilient, and she understands what power she has to change the lives of so many women and Children. Be like June. I adore Elizabeth Moss is portrayal of June Osborne. I aspire to be more like that character each day. 

spk_1 

That was a great story you had share. Starla. I mean, thank you. I really have to go check it out now. 

spk_0 

It's really good. I mean, I think you'd like it. It's there's not a dull moment. And the season four, which I'm not sure if that will be the last one, but it will be out in April. So I always look forward to April because that's the new season of Handmaid's Tale. 

spk_1 

Okay, well, it looks like you reviewed something good. Well, now it's time for me to review something bad. Okay, Okay. Well, the movie I picked this week is called Garbage Pails. kids. Oh God. And it's basically a parody of the Cabbage Patch kids. Not a good parody at all, because it has a 0% on rotten Tomatoes and has a 0% in my head because it is one of the worst movies I've ever watched. And it was only in theaters for a week and only made $1000 while it was in there pretty much after five minutes, I wanted to turn it off, but I knew that in order to review it, I had to watch the whole thing s. So I went through and watched it. And basically it's about a boy named Dodger who is bullied by a group of guys and is thrown into a dumpster and then in his antiques shop, run by his grandfather. He sees a trash can that's using some green who's so he's told not to open it, and he opens it anyway, so all of a sudden, these creepy kids come out of trash can. They're basically aliens, and pretty much one of them likes a fart. One of them, like 

spk_0 

so Ah, 

spk_1 

one of likes to eat toes. I'm goingto, and another one has snot coming down 

spk_0 

Everything. I'm scared of NFL. I gotta 

spk_1 

finish this, You know, it's part of the podcast. So basically, I watched it with my friends and I told them you're gonna watch this the whole way through because we're going to review this no matter how bad it is. And unfortunately, one of them fell asleep during it and the other one somehow got through it, which is really a surprised. But in the end, they woke up and told me, Yeah, I had nightmares the whole time. So thanks a bunch for that. Pretty much this girl named Tangerine. She uses the kids in order to make clothes. So if you can have a fashion show and Dodger, he's in love with her, but he realizes that she is using him. So the kids actually helped him show just how terrible the person she is. So in the end, they end up becoming friends with each other. And that's basically the movie. And I'd have to read it a seven out of 10 because it was great, 

spk_0 

because it's so bad. It's good. 

spk_1 

Yeah, it's one of those films basically. 

spk_0 

Well, I would give it a negative rating but we know you love that. 

spk_1 

Yeah, so it was supposed to get a sequel, but that got can't because of how horrible it was. And then on top of that, the director came back in 2016 and want to do a reboot. But its reputation was still so bad that that got scrapped also 

spk_0 

definitely means whoever wrote it was for sure. Hi, I'm not on anything, and I probably could think of things like this to 

spk_1 

now. I'm going to review Read Did redemption to this game. It's put into a version of the Wild West, and it's done by rock star. Who are the guys that did Grand Theft Auto? And it's a very interesting game because you're part of, ah group of outlaws that's run by crazy guy named Dutch. And basically there's so many things to do in the game. You can spend hours just doing nothing. Essentially, you can go fish hunt, do side quests and not even touch the main quest at all. The best part of the game is that you're not truly alone because you have your horse to go around with you. You have different people, toe associate with You can go in plant things yuk unbilled cabins everywhere. Your character, even Kenly lose weight, gain weight. It's just There's so much to the game that it was so immersive. I felt like I didn't do anything after about 100 hours. And really, there's so many more things to cover you just lose yourself in the environment. It's amazing. So I definitely recommend trying out. It has online. Also, there's race. Is there so much that's in the game that I definitely recommend it? It's a five out of five. In my opinion, 

spk_0 

it sounds fine. Definitely sounds like something to check out. It is You're an expert at that. So everyone check out red Dead redemption too. 

spk_1 

So then that is our podcast day. Thank you, Starla. 

spk_0 

Thank you. Tor bade me Iook A partners.
