Just Finished Reading "Chant and Be Happy" #books

On the 30th of April, Queensday in the Netherlands, the movement organized a meeting in the Amsterdam. I was given the book Chant and Be Happy: The Power of Mantra Meditation to read by a friendly Hare Krishna who was walking by. (Although he could have been .)

With interviews with John Lennon and George Harrison it is not just an interesting book, but also a book of historical interest.

Just Finished Reading Clive Barker's "Books of Blood" #books

I love Clive Barker's style, so when I found Books of Blood Omnibus: Volumes 1-3 and Books of Blood Omnibus: Volumes 4-6 for UGX 14800 (approx. EUR 5.055[1]) while I was in Kampala I bought them. These are an omnibus edition of a series of 6 books which contained most of the short stories Barker has written, all are inspired by fear of the unknown.

You might think sleepless nights are a thing of the past, they aren't! A must read!

Just Finished Reading "Who Will Cry When You Die?" #books

Who Will Cry When You Die? is another book by which I received from my girlfriend.

The book is filled with short punchy wisdom, and life lessons. The book made me realize that one of the goals is to make a difference for others.

A good book to dip into daily.

Just Finished Reading "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari" #books

My girlfriend gave me The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma, it is a fantastical book, a fable within a fable. The Monk suffers much of the same issues as The Celestine Prophecy, with the exception that The Monk doesn't pretend to be a novel.

I would certainly read this book again.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in 2 Parts #books #movies

I was just reading Warner Bros. and the Magic World of Harry Potter and saw that the last Harry Potter book will be in two parts. Obviously this being the last story they need to stretch it out as much as possible.
  • Spring 2010: The theme park attraction, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, will open at Universal Orlando Resort, Orlando, Fla.
  • Holiday 2010: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1, based on the final novel, is scheduled for theatrical release.
  • Summer 2011: The final movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2, will be released.

Fair Use #copyright

allows non-free images to be used under the terms of . In the case of the photograph below I can use it as I am discussing the photograph and not the contents, in other words used in a transformative nature.


IANAL and TINLA but this post, and the wikipedia entry Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the 1979 Hostage Crisis, are examples of fair-use. Although if this photo was included in an article about the Iran hostage crisis this would not be an instance of fair-use.

So could I freely include a photograph just by discussing the photograph?

Did you write down what made you happy today? #happy

I read a book to my god daughter. We practised doing handstands, made pictures on the pavement with chalk, and played with a ball.
