All good things must come to an end, so it's also true with our month of comedic actors in dramatic roles. When good things come to an end, you have to go out with a bang, and we do! This week we watched Stranger Than Fiction the 2006 Will Farrell film that co-stars Emma Thompson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Queen Latifa, and Dustin Hoffman. In this film we meet Harold Crick (Farrell) a cardboard boxed personality of a man that works for the IRS who hears narration in his head one day and finds out he's going to die. If you haven't seen this film, you've got to. So, sit back, relax and listen to our thoughts on 2006's Stranger Than Fiction. And no, this title is not indicative of our current societal climate.

Welcome back!! Love is in the air this week as the ladies discuss Netflix's romantic comedy "Entergalactic."!! Kid Cudi & Kenya Barris's animated film introduces "an ambitious artist, Jabari, attempting to balance success and love after he moves into his dream Manhattan apartment, and falls for his next-door neighbor." (Netflix) This is not a typical movie... more an artistic expression of storytelling through music and colorful visuals. What an experience! The ladies ultimately conclude that "Entergalatic" is visually stunning *stoner *film. A couple of highlights from this episode: Kat might have a crush, Moni didn't know Kid Cudi's real name, Moni & Kat agree it's a bad idea to smash your neighbors, and navigating corporate jobs, especially as Black artist, is especially painful!!

Welcome back!! The F.A.B. crew is ** finally** ready to board the ship to review sci-fi novel "Aftermath" by living legend, Levar Burton! This week's story takes the ladies into the future...or past, they can't tell. Published in 1997, this story is set in the years between 2015-2018. So the book is from the 1900's just like Moni and Kat, but still around today! Both Classics!! The plot is as follows "Civilization is teetering on the edge. The first African American president is assassinated by a white extremist—just four days after he is elected. The horrific tragedy leads to riots, financial collapse, and ultimately, a full-on civil war." (fable.co) Listen as they unpack the similarities of race relations of today, why Moni didn't finish the book and the fact that Kat would absolutely make sweet love to the person who rescued her (hypothetically from an organ harvesting, skin grafting murder factory) ....and why Moni wouldn't!

Economic depression, an enormous earthquake, and the assassination of a black President-elect have turned the country into a war zone. Four people, each as different and troubled as the next, are the nation's last hope. But can they overcome the devastation and build a new world?" -Good Reads About the Author: ***https://levarburton.com/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LeVarBurton#Awards, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LeVarBurton Show Notes: FAB Awards!!!

Welcome back! This week the ladies reviewed "Mexican Gothic" by Silvia Moreno- Garcia. (Warning, this episode contains spoilers for the book.) In this book, a family of in-bread colonizers living in a mold laced haunted mushroom house in the Mexico City country side, try to hold main character Noemi, and her cousin, Catalina hostage in this creepy hellscape. The Doyle family, originally from England, planned to use the women's wombs as incubators. The goal?... An effort to diversify their incestuous gene pool, while simultaneously preserving the twisted patriarch's tainted bloodline in an effort to obtain immortality! Gross and weird! It's giving serious Lord Voldermort vibes!!! Of course Kat finds a way to slide in a Star Trek reference, and they also have a fundamental disagreement on what they would have done at the end of the book.

Ralph has been researching the history of religion and the megalithic era for more than 40 years, and has brought many lost truths back to life. His eight books on revisionary theology claim to have rediscovered and identified all of the Old- and New-Testament events and characters within real history. With most of that history being based in Egypt. However, Ralph's first books explored the henges of Britain and pyramids of Egypt, and came to some equally unique and compelling conclusions. He claims that the megalithic monuments encode astronomical and cartographical information within their designs, which not only demonstrate the ancients had a great deal of technical knowledge, but also provide us with megalithic maps of the Earth. However, the precise meaning and import of those ancient maps is still unknown. - www.edfu-books.uk Now listen to all our XZBN shows, with our compliments go to: https://www.spreaker.com/user/xzoneradiotv*** AND NOW ***The ‘X' Zone TV Channel on SimulTV - www.simultv.comThe ‘X' Chronicles Newspaper - www.xchroniclesnewpaper.com

They should hand-pick ALL the other adults who have any access to their children, especially when they are confused and hurting!

As medications for tuberculosis became available, the need for the sanatorium waned. While the transition to nursing home care began in the 1950s, by 1971 it officially became a St. Louis County nursing home, known as Nopeming Nursing Home. By 2002, the county made the decision to close the facility, ending another chapter of Nopeming's history. Just a few years later, a new chapter began when the building was purchased by Frank Vennes Jr., a Twin Cities businessman now serving prison time for his involvement in Tom Petter's Ponzi scheme.

The Broads needed a break so we are re-releasing an oldie but a goodie about what a board interview entails. We will be back next week with new content and more great information. New York City is a unique place to buy real estate. Most of the housing stock are co-ops that require a buyer as the last step in the sales process to be interviewed by your neighbors known as the board. Hence, the dreaded "board interview" where buyers often have to grovel, donate their firstborn, or don an outfit that does not involve yoga pants. You may have heard horror stories about this. Well, we are here to tell you, they are all true. You've gotten this far with one more hurdle to go. Do you make it to the finish line?  We're talking about what to expect when you go before a co-op board for the interview in order to purchase the home of your dreams. Some questions are mundane, others can be off-putting. We'll prepare you for the unexpected and make sure you nail that interview. A few things to remember is that you will need to be prepared for anything, dress casual is best, don't ask any crazy questions, and get ready to be your most boring self who will happily answer questions with the end goal in mind. The goal being to get that approval from the board so that the next step is to close! These are the tips and tricks you can learn when you're working with a great agent who is going to get you through the process.
