A Dimland Radio ARRGH! Isn’t Regular Yoga Bullshitty Enough?
First there was yoga, a relaxing, meditative, no impact, stretching and strengthening exercise. It has its bullshit baggage, but if you can ignore all that it’s a decent way to exercise. But, then came:
Mommy and Baby Yoga. Puppy Yoga. Cat Yoga. Goat Yoga. Llama Yoga. If you prefer not to involve a baby or an animal in you stretching, there’s Yoga in a Himalayan Pink Salt Room. Hot Yoga. Ariel Yoga.
Not quite the marketing nonsense that strikes your fancy?
Well, now there’s Rage Yoga! Yoga in which you shout, swear, and rock out to some screamin’ guitar solos. I wonder what the next yoga marketing scheme will be. Underwater Yoga? Yoga in a Treehouse? Honey Badger Yoga?
As my wife said when hearing about Rage Yoga, “Shut up and do your stretches!”
Movie Recommendation: Joker (2019)
Amy, Hayden, and I saw Joker last Sunday. We really liked it. It’s not your typical comic book movie. It’s a character study of a man named Arthur Fleck who is dealing with mental illness and tries to fit in with a society that doesn’t take much notice of him. When it does it is to crap on him. He is slipping deeper into his illness. Society is also breaking down, mirroring Arthur’s descent.
Joaquin Phoenix was the perfect choice for the role. His performance is terrific. We may have another actor receiving the Oscar for playing the Joker.
