Dr Bronner’s Magic Soapbox Trailer

Adam has previously tested and reviewed Dr Bronner’s shower gel, but who knew in 1947 Dr Bronner was commited to a mental institution and promptly escaped (a bit like the A-Team. Probably) to set up his soap business. Now the subject of a documentary, the trailer is embedded below.

You can find more about the documentary at The Magic Soapbox.

100 Movies, 100 Quotes, 100 Numbers

An interesting 10 minute video, with 100 scenes from great movies, each with a numerical quote in them counting down from 100. If you have time to spare, it’s a great watch.

Taking Liberties

Taking Liberties looks like an interesting book that has now been made into a film, on a limited release across the UK. According to the website:

“Freedom of Speech. Right to Privacy. Innocent Until Proven Guilty. Prohibition from Torture. TAKING LIBERTIES will reveal how these liberties have been systematically destroyed by New Labour, and the freedoms of the British people stolen from under their noses amidst a climate of fear created by the media and government itself.”

It’s out now.
