Totem Soup Update – Lazy Days of Winter

It has been a bit since I have made an entry. Work and lack of money has put my side projects on halt. Being a contract worker, I was snowed in for six days, leaving me without pay for those days. Family first is always the motto. I have been keeping busy with some pretty fantastic documentaries in my free time (along with playing Mincraft with my sons). Out of the dozens I have watched so far I can safely say I have 3 on my must watch list.

1. Religulous

IMDB Rating: 7.7/10 from 47,450 users
My Rating: 8/10
This one goes to a very blunt and harsh place. I really enjoyed this documentary because it was very funny to me, but I can see where it would be offensive to one of faith due to Bill Maher's lack of tact, at his discretion I am sure.

2. Your Inner Fish

IMDB Ratings: 8.6/10 from 97 users
My Rating: 9/10
This was very entertaining and informative. Very kid friendly as well! It appears to only have 3 parts:
Part 1. Your Inner Fish
Part 2. Your Inner Reptile
Part 3. Your Inner Monkey
All I have to say is I would love to see more of this!

3. The Unbelievers

IMDB Ratings: 7.2/10 from 2,965 users
My Rating: 8/10
This is a clip documentary, for the most part, of Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss traversing the globe and going toe to toe with theists. This is basically Religulous, but the back and forth between theists and atheists was more tactful. Overall an entertaining and educational watch as well.

That's it for now!
