From my wonderful publisher Open Books…
Only 2 days remain until the official release of ReelRoyReviews, a book of film, music, and theatre reviews, by Roy Sexton!
Please note that, in addition to online ordering, the book currently is being carried by Green Brain Comics in Dearborn, Michigan and by Memory Lane Gift Shop in Columbia City, Indiana. Memory Lane also has copies of Susie Duncan Sexton’s Secrets of an Old Typewriter series.
Here’s what Roy thought about 12 Years a Slave: “…a haunting portrait of an America in which religious fervor (and hypocrisy) corrosively coupled with economic disparity prop up a cruel caste system whereby our humanity is a commodity traded too easily for blood and cash.”

i haven’t seen this, but i know it is supposed to be amazing. i can’t bring myself to see any more pain and suffering right now. maybe in the spring?
it actually comes out on dvd in the next week or so – should make for a slightly less grueling experience, I suspect
that will make it easier to digest roy. i know it’s a story that needs to be told. –
and time for the as don calls it “genocide” of animals since the beginning of time to be addressed…civilization will have arrived when we stop practicing violence toward and condescension directed at and disregard for the suffering of all living beings whatsoever. it all started when mankind crawled out of the slime and started walking upright…and felt all superior. I love the quotes featured in each installment of this countdown here.
Very well said. Man’s need for “superiority” has led to all the world’s evils. Hopefully, one day we will all finally wake up
