A YouTube killer.
As Steemit is run by bots, I don't see how d.tube could be any good.
Yet another buddy cop movie, but this time instead of
<random race> it is an Orc, and instead of
</random><random drugs> it's magic.
An adequate movie.
- Men grow unhappier after retiring, overtaking at age 85, NHS survey reveals.

A dying guy writes about how awesome he had it, and gives advice to his children.
It takes almost half of the book to mine more than two interesting points. It is a glaring reminder of how important it is to have a solid first chapter. Instead, chapter after chapter this book keeps promising something interesting, forcing the reader to cling to the "I'm dying" parts to hope for something better.
For people who stick it out, there is a lot of fluff which I was able to trivially summarize with two pages of bullet points. That's nothing to sneeze at, so I suppose this is worth reading for some, though I won't recommend it.
- A continuation of his lecture Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams.
You are chained to things that make you unproductive. Unproductive not only in terms of your responsibilities but also your desires. They are a strain not only on your time but also on your peace of mind.
Unplugging targets a wide number of associated things, freeing up time and considerations to be put toward things which are specifically-desired. Instead of effort being put toward problems, passion is put toward desires.
This action is meant to take the whole day, and be regularly repeated. It is meant to be a defined branch of time management and a fundamental philosophy.

There is a spectrum, of sorts, of creativity. Writers are particularly aware of this, and the culture describes two ways of writing. One side is more unplanned, and the other side is more structured.
It can also be called something like "contemplation" or mental relaxation.
However, I don't meditate. I appear to have created something else. Perhaps "Focus" is a better word. I will consider this, and perhaps my notes will be moved somewhere appropriate.
A coming of age story of a class of students learning poetry in an unorthodox way.
While I recommend and like this, it not great.
Something about it makes it feel somehow inelegant or simple, perhaps even predictable. Perhaps it stood out in its era, and it caught me at an impressionable moment for my first viewing, but as I watch it again it doesn't grab me much at all. I think this would be weakly-mandatory for creating a well-rounded movie-learning experience in someone young.

A documentary on, and interviews with, Edward Snowden.
I suppose it has some interesting material, and certainly the topic is great, but as a viewing experience this movie is boring as fuck.
