7 Tips on How to Find an Honest Coin Dealer

Before you buy coins online, it's vital to research the seller. There are several ways to do this. Using your local coin store, attending local coin shows, or visiting a coin auction site can all be good places to find a trustworthy dealer. But regardless of the method, you'll need to practice due diligence and find a reputable dealer. One of the best ways to do this is by looking at completed listings on websites. When you look at these listings, you'll see how much the coins sell.

What Are the Benefits of Advertising?

Advertising has many benefits, but none outweigh the costs. Sir William Leverhulm once said it was "educational" because it aimed to educate buyers about new goods and ways of life. It also helped break inertia, forcing people to let go of old habits. Advertising also increases the utility of given commodities. Because it emphasizes the qualities of the good, consumers will be more likely to purchase it if it has higher utility. Here are 7 advantages of advertising your businesses.

"Better Nate Than Ever" Teaches Important Lessons

Life is often hard for the young and musically inclined. A glut of heavy competition and a lack of interest in the public makes roles very hard. Many children may even give up on their dreams and end up unhappy. That's where movies like "Better Nate Than Ever" come into play. 

What is "Better Nate Than Ever?" 

This film is a recent release by Tim Federle, an actor, and author who also wrote the book upon which this movie is based. His goal when creating the movie was to show a young and musically interested young person overcoming difficulties to reach their dreams. Federle dreamed up Nate Foster, an average 13-year-old boy with big dreams of becoming the next Broadway musical star. 

The only problem is that Nate isn't too popular in his school. Kids pick on him, his teachers mostly ignore him, and his chances of landing a big role in school musicals are next to nothing. The most popular kids always get the lead roles, even if they can barely sing, and mostly take theater and performance classes as an easy A. Nate, instead, always gets pushed into the chorus. 

All of these setbacks have him in a tough spot emotionally, and he's struggling to feel important. Many kids throughout the nation have these same feelings. They are taught to feel special and that they matter by well-meaning teachers. However, the reality of high school politics and popularity contests often leave many of these children behind, lost in confusion and unable to cope. 

Nate's Big Plan

Federle's book and film paint a fun and engaging story of one boy's attempt to break past these struggles to become the success he wants. That's because his best friend Libby comes up with a big plan. The two of them will go to New York City without letting anybody know to try out for "Lilo and Stich: The Musical." This selection of the musical is both comical and appropriate, considering the story's themes. 

The original "Lilo and Stitch" movie focused on a confused and isolated young person, someone who didn't feel at home anywhere. She finally gets a new best friend, an alien who is as literal an outside as she is metaphorically one. The two go on amazing adventures and discover a higher sense of purpose along the way. The parallels to Foster's drive are obvious. 

As you'd imagine, things don't go as planned. Federle keeps the plot brisk and clean, moving his characters quickly from one destination to the next. He gives the audience just enough time to reflect (and laugh: the film is quite funny) before moving to the next big scene and hilarious set-piece. 

That pause is important here. If the movie had just barreled over each plot point, its messages would be lost. Federle and the cast wisely let each point settle a moment, giving the expected teen audience just enough time to connect with each point and use it to plan for a better and happier life for themselves. And, hopefully, to learn to never stop chasing their dreams.

Random Rambling - Dating, Exercising, and Writing

It's another sleepless night for me for many reasons I will not go into, and, no, it doesn't have anything to do with my caffeine intake, though I did brew a cup just a few minutes ago. Once again, my mind is practically running on a different cylinder than my usual norm and listening to Taylor Swift's Fearless rerelease. (Yes, I am a Taylor Swift fan. Enough said.) There are too many things I need to catch up on and several new ideas I would like to focus my attention on. If there were only more hours in a day, then maybe I could get more things accomplished. Or if I would solve my procrastination issues then, I would have plenty of time to do all things I want to do.

{Late-At-Night Rambling} - Hammer Glamour & Online Dating

Thanks to a lack of sleep and drinking a bit too much caffeine, my mind is currently running on totally different cylinders tonight. Instead of writing reviews and articles, I'm watching clips and interviews of older actresses on Youtube. Yes, I know that might sound a bit weird, but I sort of having a reason for it. I've been a Hammer Films fan since I was a little bitty kid, but my fascination with these gothic films has increased ever since I got my hands on the Hammer Films: The Ultimate Collection Blu-ray set from Mill Creek Entertainment. And I cannot exactly explain it, but a chain reaction took place. I bought several Hammer movies on DVD and Blu-ray from Scream Factory and Warner Archives and several VUDU digitals. Then I ordered the books "The Art of Hammer: Posters From The Archives of Hammer Films" and "Hammer Glamour: Classic Images From The Archives Of Hammer Films." The latter title is all about the gorgeous actresses who appeared in those films. I'm not naming names, but I have developed an infatuation with at least three of these women, even though they are all old enough to be my grandmothers.

{Random Rambling} - Dating Apps and Interabled Relationships

Having a chronic disease or disability can put a strain on your relationship with your family and friends, and it can also affect your love life. Being single can be depressing enough by itself but can be even worse when you have a medical condition. Hollywood and the media love to glamorize love stories and show us that only people with perfect bodies with zero issues can fall in love. In reality, this isn't true at all. Nobody is perfect, and every one of us has our weaknesses and flaws. We are all human beings, and all of us want to be appreciated and loved.

BDSM in Fifty Shades of Grey

I was channel surfing and came across the edited version of Fifty Shades of Grey starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, and to my shock, I learned the movie is already five years old. Wow. Where does the time go? It seems like yesterday the film was playing at my town's one-screen theater, and it caused a bit of commotion. Why? Well, the theater usually plays only PG or PG-13 films, so a Rated-R flick was a big deal for a small midwestern town.
