Everything Old is New Again: A Review of It Follows

micki allen

follows

Drop this enigmatic little thriller in any 70s or 80s creepfest and not only will its score feel right at home, but the budget and the story-line are likely to as well. The genius of It Follows is in David Robert Mitchell’s ability to take every (and I do mean every) horror cliche taught in the proverbial Scary Movies 101 class and amplify them with enough pure dread that completing this film is akin to taking a master’s class at the University of Psychological Thrillers.

Where the hell did this young pup (Mitchell) come from anyway? And, why have I never heard of him before? He obviously digested ample late-night horror shows as a kid because his knack for cloak-and-dagger paced suspense is remarkable. This is one talented writer/director, Folks. I suspect he is what you’d get if you magically mated John Carpenter and John Hughes. Carpenter for obvious…

Ego- Time to go.

Words dipped in Happiness

Ego, the trending topic in any relationship, always becomes the reason for a relationship to face inequalities and then indifferences and then they want only one thing, independence from each other.
So where this ego comes from?
It comes from the womb of hatred, that may be on anything, your work, your state of mind, or your partner’s popularity (in some cases). But remember, you can never clap with one hand. So one of them has to try to maintain the relationship by assessing the situations. Keep out the negative thoughts. Never let them come inside the mind. Because it rules over the heart and may destroy love from it. ONLY WHAT YOU EAT WITH YOUR MOUTH, REACHES YOUR STOMACH.

So we have to try to understand the position of our loved ones, try to control their anger, their depression show love to them, don’t let them feel lonely. Always…

How should I know when I meet a Christian?

fluidplans

These days it seems that the vast majority of people I run into that claim to be Christians simply are not..

What are they anyway?

Simply a person who attempts to live a good life?  Really, this is a pathetic definition of the most apologetic variety, in such a case every religion and even the irreligious (of which I count myself as one) contain Christians.  I think for now this type definition can be dismissed as so watery it has lost all import.  There is also the logical back-step (modus tollens) that those who are not Christians are not trying to live a good life.  This section make up most of the people that want to argue with an Anti-Theist, for the life of me I can not understand this as they ought know they are simply to pathetic to argue with.  I liken this to the spiritual person who…

Portuguese Inspired Lemon and Herb Marinade

Eloises Edibles

wpid-2015-05-19-11.52.09.jpg.jpeg

I created this marinade when I was thinking of what I wanted for dinner and couldn’t decide between a lemon and herb chicken breast or something with a little kick of chilli. My inspiration was obviously from Nandos famous Portuguese chicken (although my version tastes different to the bottles you can buy but the spirit is there).

The thing that I love about this marinade is that once you have made it, you can put it on chicken, pork, fish or even add a little bit of it in a stir fry of vegetables while cooking!

I like to serve the chicken with my “Easy Peas Bean Salad” and “No Mayo Slaw” 🙂

Makes: approximately 300ml of marinade

Ingredients:

Meat:

  • 2 large chicken breasts
