Check out 'Tipping Sacred Cows'

Check out ‘Tipping Sacred Cows’

I just finished reading a terrific new book, Tipping Sacred Cows, by my colleague and fellow author Betsy Chasse, one of the driving forces behind the movie “What the Bleep Do We Know?!” Betsy’s incisive wit and wisdom takes on a lot of widely accepted metaphysical and new age principles, affirming what works, poking holes in the ideas where necessary, and offering practical, reasoned reinterpretations when called for. Drawing from her own experiences, the author illustrates her insights with razor sharp observations and biting humor, making for a very entertaining read, especially for anyone who’s going through a period of transition and reassessment in his or her life. And don’t forget to check out the cocktail recipes at the back of the book — their presence will become apparent when you read what Betsy has to say! ...

How’d I Do on This Year’s Oscars?

With this year’s Academy Awards ceremony behind us, it’s time to take a look at how I did on my predictions for the winners in this annual competition, as first outlined in my previous blog, Who Will Capture This Year’s Oscars. And the result? A perfect score! Out of the six major categories, I got them all! Best Picture Projected Winner: “12 Years a Slave”Actual Winner: “12 Years a Slave”Result: Correct call This was the only major category that had any significant suspense associated with it, though “12 Years a Slave” was clearly one of the two frontrunners (the other being “American Hustle,” which, regrettably, was completely shut out on its 10 nominations). But, even though the film’s win wasn’t a surprise, it was not, in my opinion, the picture most worthy of top honors. My choice would have been “American Hustle.” I also would have been content with wins by “Nebraska,” “Philomena” or “The Wolf of Wall Street,” though they were all long shots at best. Best Actor Projected Winner: Matthew McConaughey, “Dallas Buyers Club”Actual Winner: Matthew McConaughey, “Dallas Buyers Club”Result: Correct call This was a slam dunk. McConaughey swept the best actor category in every major competition leading ...
