RIP Helen Reddy

Art has a way of creating change in a way that few other things can.

Australian singer Helen Reddy passed away on Tuesday.

Her most famous song is the 1970’s feminist anthem, “I am Woman”.

The thing that I love about her song is that it reflects both the joy and the work that comes with being independent. It is also one of the OG feminist songs, paving the way for future female artists to express themselves and inspire the next generation of women.

RIP Helen Reddy. May your memory be a blessing to all of us who have walked on the trail you blazed for us.

Flashback Friday-Hercules: The Legendary Journeys (1995-1999)

The legend of Hercules has been around for thousands of years. The son of a mortal woman and the king of the G-ds, he has abilities that few have. He also has enemies who would love to take him down for good.

Hercules: The Legendary Journeys aired from 1995-1999. The show starred Kevin Sorbo was the title character and Michael Hurst as his best friend/traveling companion Iolaus. Together, they saved countless humans from vengeful g-ds and creatures that can only be found in the darkest reaches of the imagination.

Back in the day, I was a fan of this program. It was one of those shows that is very (and I mean very in every sense of the word), genre specific. As an action/fantasy program, it was entertaining and opened the door for the genre for the next ten years or so. Would it watch if it was on today? Maybe, but only for nostalgia sake.

Do I recommend it? Yes, sort of (if that makes sense).
