In Chasing the White Dog, journalist Max Watman traces the historical roots and contemporary story of hooch. He takes us to the backwoods of Appalachia and the gritty nip joints of Philadelphia, from a federal courthouse to Pocono Speedway, profiling the colorful characters who make up white whiskey´s lore. Along the way, Watman chronicles his hilarious attempts to distill his own moonshine - the essential ingredients and the many ways it can all go wrong - from his initial ill-fated batch to his first successful jar of ´shine. It begins in Monongahela, Pennsylvania, where drunk and armed outlaws gathered in the summer of 1794. George Washington mustered 13,000 troops to quell the rebellion, but by the time they arrived, the rebels had vanished; America´s first moonshiners had packed up their stills and moved on. From these moonshiners who protested the Whiskey Tax of 1791, to the bathtub gin runners of the 1920s, to today´s booming bootleg businessmen, white lightning has played a surprisingly large role in American history. It touched the election of Thomas Jefferson, the invention of the IRS, and the origins of NASCAR. It is a story of tommy guns, hot rods, and shot houses, and the story is far from over. Infiltrating every aspect of small-scale distilling in America, from the backyard hobbyists to the growing popularity of microdistilleries, Chasing the White Dog provides a fascinating, centuries-long history of illicit booze from an unrepentant lover of moonshine. 1.

(Legacy) 36 Tracks mit 30 Seiten Booklet. 2-CD-Begleiter zur Ausstellung ´Country Music Hall Of Fame And Museum´ ´Outlaws & Armadillos: Country´s Roaring´70s´. In Texas und in Tennessee waren die 1970er Jahre eine kreative Blütezeit, ein Zusammenfluss von Kunst und Fröhlichkeit, Whiskey und Poesie, unterstützt durch wildäugige Funkies, die sich in einer fantasievollen Umgebung wie Nashville´s Hillbilly Central und Austin´s Armadillo World Headquarters trafen. Charaktere wie Billy Joe Shaver,´Mysterious Rhinestone Cowboy´ David Allan Coe,´Texas Jewboy´ Kinky Friedman, Cowboy Jack Clement (der Pferde fürchtete und bequeme Schuhe trug), Waylon Jennings, und Buddha Willie Nelson, der sich in einer glorreichen Kulturkollision präsentierte, die einige der besten Aufnahmen der Country-Musik hervorbrachte. ´´Willst du mit dem Armadillo nach Hause gehen´´, sang Gary P. Nunn in seinem jetzt klassischen ´´London Homesick Blues.´´ Nunn sprach von Texas, wo das Opossum zu einem Signifikanten einer unbändigen Szene wurde, die Rednecks und Hippies, Old-School-Traditionen und psychedelische Tendenzen überbrückte. Armadillos und Hippies sind sich ein wenig ähnlich, weil sie verleumdet und angegriffen werden´´´, sagte Eddie Wilson, der den biergetränkten Austin-Schauplatz leitete, den er zu Ehren des Gürteltieres nannte. Gürteltiere schlafen gerne den ganzen Tag und ziehen nachts umher. Sie teilen ihre Häuser mit anderen. Die Leute denken, dass sie stinken und hässlich sind, und sie halten ihre Nasen im Gras. Sie sind paranoid. Aber ( meistens) überleben sie, irgendwie. Auch die Musik überlebt. Die Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum feiert diese Musik und die Menschen, die sie geschaffen haben, mit der Ausstellung Outlaws & Armadillos: Country´s Roaring´70s.

In the late 1970s, as Spain was adrift between the death of Franco and the rebirth of democracy, people were moving from the poor south to the cities of the north in search of a better life. But the work, when there was any, was poorly paid and the housing squalid. Out of this world of limited opportunities a generation of delinquents arose whose prospects were stifled and whose rebellion would be brief and violent. One summer´s day in Gerona a bespectacled, sixteen-year-old Ignacio Canas, known to his few friends as Gafitas, is working in an amusement arcade, when a charismatic teenager walks in with the most beautiful girl Canas has ever seen. Zarco and Tere take over his pinball machine and his life. Thirty years on and now a successful criminal defense lawyer, Canas has tried to put that long, hot summer of drugs, yearning and delinquency behind him. But when Tere appears in his office and asks him to represent El Zarco, who has been in prison all this time, what else can Gafitas do but accept. A powerful novel of love and hate, of loyalty and betrayal, of true integrity and the prison celebrity can become, Outlaws confirms Javier Cercas as one of the most thrilling novelists writing anywhere in the world today. 1.

Curt Newton leads his valiant band of Futuremen in the thrilling campaign to preserve a priceless Lunar heritage! From the pages of classic pulp, Captain Future flies into action, displaying the most exciting aspects of science fiction. Although modeled to a degree after Doc Savage, Captain Future is also the ultimate space opera hero. Coming complete with not only a tragic, yet inspiring origin story driving him into defending interstellar justice, everyone and everything Curt Newton encounters is colorful, vibrant, and over the top, definite trademarks of the best space opera. Although an orphan, Curtis Newton´s parents left him with gifts that would most definitely lead to him becoming Captain Future, the superman of the spaceways. His mother, Elaine, provided him with his mission, to become the protector of the solar system, to fight for justice wherever it may take him. Roger, his father, not only passed on incredible genius and scientific skills, but he provided him with three caregivers that would grow to be the greatest team a space faring hero could have - the Futuremen! The Futuremen all have their origins in the Moon Laboratory that is both home and headquarters to Captain Future. Referred to as a ´´citadel of science´´, the Moon Laboratory is designed in a circular fashion and contains quarters for the Futuremen, even though not all of them, such as Grag, actually require rest. A reference library containing the vast knowledge of the universe, the Brain´s personal lab, a large room that serves as both workspace and social area with a glassite window as ceiling, and many other rooms make up the Moon Laboratory, definitely the perfect place for an interplanetary hero to call his own. Rocket into science fiction adventure and discover new worlds. Ripped from the pages of the spring 1942 issue of Captain Future magazine, ´´Outlaws of the Moon´´ is read with wonder and excitement by Milton Bagby. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Milton Bagby.

This new fantasy-adventure series from N. D. Wilson, best-selling author of 100 Cupboards, pits a misfit 12-year-old against a maniacal villain with a deadly vendetta. This one-of-a kind story is a must-listen for fans of Brandon Mull and Soman Chainani and the start of a thrilling tale from a masterful storyteller. Sam Miracle´s life is made up of dreams - dreams where he´s a courageous, legendary hero instead of a foster kid with two bad arms that can barely move. Sometimes these dreams feel so real, they seem like forgotten memories. And sometimes they make him believe that his arms might come alive again. But Sam is about to discover that the world he knows and the world he imagines are separated by only one thing: time. And that separation is only an illusion. The laws of time can be bent and shifted by people with special magic that allows them to travel through the past, present, and future. But not all of these ´´time walkers´´ can be trusted. One is out to protect Sam so that he can accept his greatest destiny, and another is out to kill him so that a prophecy will never be fulfilled. However, it´s an adventurous girl named Glory and two peculiar snakes who show Sam the way through the dark paths of yesterday to help him make sure there will be a tomorrow for every last person on Earth. 1.

Before smartphones, back even before the Internet and personal computer, a misfit group of technophiles, blind teenagers, hippies, and outlaws figured out how to hack the world’s largest machine: the telephone system. Starting with Alexander Graham Bell’s revolutionary ´´harmonic telegraph´´, by the middle of the 20th century the phone system had grown into something extraordinary, a web of cutting-edge switching machines and human operators that linked together millions of people like never before. But the network had a billion-dollar flaw, and once people discovered it, things would never be the same. Exploding the Phone tells this story in full for the first time. It traces the birth of long-distance communication and the telephone, the rise of AT&T’s monopoly, the creation of the sophisticated machines that made it all work, and the discovery of Ma Bell’s Achilles’ heel. Phil Lapsley expertly weaves together the clandestine underground of ´´phone phreaks´´ who turned the network into their electronic playground, the mobsters who exploited its flaws to avoid the feds, the explosion of telephone hacking in the counterculture, and the war between the phreaks, the phone company, and the FBI. The product of extensive original research, Exploding the Phone is a groundbreaking, captivating book. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Johann North.
