BOOM BUST BOOM Film Will Blow Your Mind

  BOOM BUST BOOM the new documentary about the global economy will blow your mind. When I agreed to attend a press screening with my documentarian, anarchist-leaning hubby Joel Sucher I expected a boring doc about the economic collapse of 2008, but the moment the film opened with Monty Pythonesque animation I knew we’d entered the land […]


Blog Content Stolen? Take The Road Less Traveled and Do This

  This is a happy story about stolen blog content and photo quotes. When I launched Boomer Muse in 2008, photo quotes were at the beginning of their popularity.
