What Do You Watch After You Binge Gilmore Girls

Watching documentaries is one of my favorite activities. I think they are a great filler of the void Agent Carter or Orange is the New Black leaves behind. They can be left playing in the background for noise or you can really pay attention and learn something new. The versatility of documentaries is wonderful! But how do you decide what to watch? Here is a list of several documentaries I have watched that I think should be seen by everyone- in no particular order.

1.) Blackfish

This is an ivocotive study on how animals are treated in captivity. The documentary focuses on orca whales and SeaWorld, which has advocated for keeping these animals contained. It really makes the viewer think about why these animals have sometimes become violent. While the content is extremely sad, it has generated quite a bit of response from the audience. I think it's a very relevant documentary- even after being out for three years. Very worth a watch!

2.) What Happened, Miss Simone?

Focusing on the life of prolific female artist, Nina Simone. The audience is given an intimate look not only into her career, but also the emotional and psychological trauma that existed in her life. It is a really fascinating watch that needs to be seen by everyone! Love!

3.) Hot Girls Wanted

We all know about the adult film industry, but this documentary really says some intelligent things to say about the state of it. Relevant stars provide commentary about their experiences. It also explores the harsher realities for these performers. For the women involved in their industry, it can be a dark, unkind place, and it gets your attention from the start.

4.) Ballet 422

I am in love with anything related to ballet, so when I found this documentary I was hooked. This centers around the New York City Ballets creation of their 422nd ballet. Following the journey of Justin Peck- soloist and choreographer, the documentary deviates from standard fair. Throughout the documentary, it is a more simple take on this type of film, which leads to the appeal of it. It is a very easy and informative watch. Love it. Hands down one of my favorites. I've watched it so many times.

5.) Twinsters

This is a documentary that just made me happy to watch it. Two girls adopted from South Korea connect through social media and form a friendship. It is another documentary that just was a joy to watch. Seeing the connection between these two girls form is wonderful.

If you have never watched a documentary before, join the fold!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
