Category: Mindless Diversions

Mindless Diversions is a place to discuss movies, books, films/TV, games, or any other entertainment/lifestyle stuff, without the constant internet bickering over personal political and religious preferences. There are plenty of places on the internet for that.

Occasionally, politics and religion will come up anyway – human art and entertainment often address them – and that’s fine, too, as long as your primary intent is to talk about the art – not to give your political opponents a stealth poke in the eye.

Comment threads that stray into politics or religion will be monitored closely, and, if you get a mod telling you “No politics,” or “No religion,” that’s what it means.

Mindless Diversions strives to be a place for people to come together, not be split apart.

Treat each other kindly.

Maybe the cruelty to animals is that they were left out of the production.

Sunday Morning! Balzac’s Wild Ass’s Skin

The Balzac streak continues with a supernatural tale built on the fantastical conceit that our energies can be used to fulfill our desires or squandered and lost.
