DISCLAIMER: 5¢ense Reviews are seeped in direct sensory experience. They do not pretend to be objective or conventional. By definition, they are inevitably subjective, and in fact may be completely arbitrary, biased or fictitious. The subjects of the reviews are also somewhat random: literature, art, music, food, movies, travel destinations, or any experiences that transcend, meld or deconstruct form or genre, or that engage or inspire the visual, aural, gustatory, olfactory and tactile senses (or simultaneously none of the above). This is not to say that 5¢ense Reviews need to make any sense.

Unless stated otherwise, these reviews, blatherings and ephemera are the opinionated
