      Review of High on the Hog                         I started watching a docuseries last night and I cried so hard, my chest still hurts today. I can’t wait to watch the rest of it. This show blew everybody away in just one season, and another season is in progress. A 2021 Peabody Award winner, the show chronicles the journey of African slaves from their hometowns to America, and the show details how their food influenced American cuisine all over the South and into Texas. A trailer for this amazing show is here:   As a white person, I can…

    Tarot with Lady Saoirse

    Tarot with Lady Saoirse Litha 2023     Bright Blessings! In the last article, I had some tips for reading tarot, and how talent is required. No matter how much you read and how many classes you take, if you are not intuitive, doing psychic readings is not something you will excel at. So that brings us to a question then. How do you get a tarot reading from somebody else? You would think all you had to do is pick a random reader, then pay them, and everything else would be perfect. Sometimes, it works out that way, but sometimes it doesn’t. There are a lot of reasons that…

    A Memorial – Interview with Lord Shadow by Lady Saoirse

    Bright Blessings. I have mentioned my Priest in more than one article for PaganPagesOrg. I have talked about things he has told me, rituals we have done together, and our relationship. For those who have not read, I will tell you a bit. We have become as family to one another. Lord Shadow is basically my Dad/Priest/Friend, as he refers to himself. I met him through a friend of his who I was studying chaos magic with when I was a new witch. Lord Shadow and I hit it off, and I was told a lot about his experience, wisdom, and expertise from more than one person. When I decided…

    My Name is Mo’Nique   Bright Blessings, film and tv watchers! I am reviewing something that had me in tears in ways I never expected. I have not been a fan of this individual simply because I watched this individual raise holy hell about things regularly, and I considered them to be a bucket of rage and a bitter individual who quite frankly seemed like a negative individual who I just would not want to be in the room with. And that was my opinion of Mo’Nique and I was wrong. However, I’m not stupid. I have watched her as a fashion icon, and am aware that the older she…

It starred veteran actors and some rising stars and won the love and respect of viewers internationally. It is called the Woman King and you can watch a trailer here:     Before…

      Somebody Feed Phil Bright Blessings Viewers, Or should I say foodies? I admit, there is one type of show or film I love just as much as I love horror, and that is food shows. This particular show I’m reviewing today was started in 2018, and was extended to a total of six seasons, which stopped being produced in 2022. It has been shot all over the world, and it earned two real TV awards, and two Emmy nominations. It is called Somebody Feed Phil, and here is a trailer you can watch:     Before I begin bragging on the show and revealing its magic, let me tell…
