What is there not to love about Agent Dale Cooper? This is a great piece of memorabilia for Twin Peaks fans. Nothing ground-breaking or chilling, but fun just the same.

Living and dying with bravery and honor is at the heart of Hagakure, a series of texts written by an 18th-century samurai, Yamamoto Tsunetomo. It is a window into the samurai mind, illuminating the concept of bushido (the Way of the Warrior), which dictated how samurai were expected to behave, conduct themselves, live, and die.

The Muad'Dib's jihad is in full swing. His warrior legions march from victory to victory. But beneath the joy of victory there are dangerous undercurrents. Paul, like nearly every great conqueror, has enemies - those who would betray him to steal the awesome power he commands. Paul himself begins to have doubts: Is the jihad getting out of his control? Has he created anarchy? Has he been betrayed by those he loves and trusts the most? And most of all, he wonders: Am I going mad?

it's very soothing. very logical. very affirmative. I'm just getting started with it, but I'm sure I got my money's worth. warning: this is not for trolls. there are no special effects or pixie dust. like anything in life, the true power of change is within the listener. these recordings simply bring it to the surface.

Zen Buddhism is commonly misunderstood, and this is because people do not understand how Zen is different than Buddhism. It is often seen as a religion when it is not, and this sets people up to misunderstand what Zen can be and how it can be incorporated into your life. Zen can be used in conjunction with other religions, but it is more concerned about the present. Zen is something that is a way of life and healthy habits.

this is the kind of stuff we wrote about in our creative writing classes when I was an adolescent. also, the 2nd story would've really got me off if the narrator actually sounded middle aged. otherwise, it was worth the $$$.
