Are We Heros?

Posted by | No Tags | Uncategorized | No Comments on Are We Heros?

Posted by | No Tags | Uncategorized | No Comments on “Sound Of My Voice”

I’ve been watching a movie called “Sound Of My Voice” on amazon.com about a lady who is hidden in the basement of her “followers” and professes to be from the future. It’s freaky but a very well laid out scam (if it really is a scam). In the movie the lead investigators sneak into these meetings […]
