Bear Essential Reviews: Disney's Tomorrowland

Disney's Tomorrowland is the latest in the company's Theme Park related movie line. The trailer, released earlier this year, really had me excited and yet concerned at the same time. Staring George Clooney as Frank Walker, we journey from the Past to the Future, to Today and then back to the Future in an adventure that has a very deeply routed "Disney" message.

Bear Essential Review: Supergirl Series Trailer

The small screen sure is getting crowded with all these superheroes! It is truly the Golden Age to be a Geek. On today's Bear Essential Review, we are taking a look at the Supergirl series trailer. Supergirl will be flying onto your television screens in November 2015 on Monday nights. Available only on CBS.

What is PrEP? Truvada

This is a repost from Feb 12th but I think it needs to be shown again because how many people still don't know the importance of Truvada. I have been very active with educating everyone on social media about the importance of being on PrEP (Truvada). If you are Gay, Straight or whatever and sexually active, you need to know what PrEP (Truvada) is and the benefits of this game changing medication. I am not a doctor and don't give medical advise. But I know how this medication has given me a peace of mind for almost a year. Please ask your doctor today about Truvada (link provided below).

Gilead, the maker of Truvada, offers a Co-Pay Discount Card available on their website. It is FREE!


Bear Essential Review: the muppets trailer

I'm back with another Bear Essential Review! I have been a fan of The Muppets since I was a little Kidlet.

Well, they are back this Fall with a brand new show. I can't wait. Let's take a look at the trailer and get my reaction on today's daily vlog!

Medical Insurance Is Worthless

American Medical Insurance is horrible! I think I had a stroke when I opened my hospital bill from Florida but I wont go and get that checked out because I can't afford it now. I basically don't think I can afford to breath and I sure can't afford to die. Talk about a rock and a hard spot.

Labels, Labels, Labels

I have noticed a growing trend in the Millennial Generation recently. The Millennials, in general, do not like to be labeled when it comes to their sexuality, politics and overall characteristic of their personalities. My generation, Generation X, tend to embrace social labels and fought to take back words that were once thought of as negative or abusive. So I went out and asked some Millennials what they thought about Labels. My findings are very interesting.
