„Don’t Trust Anyone Over Thirty“ ist eine satirische Videoarbeit, die Dan Grahams Analyse der Kultur der 1960er-Jahre fortsetzt. Begonnen hatte sie der Künstler 1981 mit dem Video „Rock My Religion“, einer Arbeit, die die Entwicklung der Jugendkultur seit den 1950er- und 60er-Jahren thematisiert. „Don’t Trust“ spielt in der Zeit Ende der 60er-Jahre, als die Hippies ihre Orte der „Gegenkultur“ in die beschauliche „Wildnis“ ländlicher Gegenden brachten. Graham hatte die Arbeit ursprünglich als Puppentheater ähnlich der „Muppet-Show“ konzipiert, als Bearbeitung eines historischen Stoffs zur Unterhaltung einstiger Hippies durch deren Kinder und Enkel.

Triple bill of British comedies starring Leslie Phillips. In 'The Man Who Liked Funerals' (1959) Simon Hurd (Phillips) takes it upon himself to raise the necessary finances to keep the local youth club open. But he uses a peculiar technique to do so - he attends funerals and blackmails mourners into giving him money by threatening to reveal unfortunate stories about them to the press. However, he may regret his pitches after potentially meeting his match... In 'Don't Just Lie There, Say Something' (1974) Phillips stars as Sir William Mainwaring-Brown, a Government minister with a roving eye who has just introduced a bill to combat libertarian behaviour in Britain. Sir William, however, is having affairs with both his secretary Miss Parkyn (Joanna Lumley) and Wendy (Anita Graham), the wife of an eminent reporter. A group of hippies who oppose the bill seek to derail his campaign by discrediting co-founders Sir William and his best friend Barry Ovis (Brian Rix). In 'In the Doghouse' (1962) Phillips and James Booth star as rival vets. After ten long years of training, Jimmy Fox-Upton (Phillips) finally qualifies as a vet and opens his own practice. Settled in London, Jimmy opposes the money-grabbing ways of his fellow graduate Bob Skeffington (Booth) and sets about exposing his lucrative equine export scam.

Book two of the continuing hilarious and often bittersweet real-life saga of Ellen Garrison and her husband as they adjust to life in a 29-foot travel trailer with two spoiled, incorrigible, small dogs. Self-proclaimed liberals, Ellen and her “old man”, struggle to fit in with their fellow (mostly right-wing) "Trailer Dogs", as they recover from devastating personal and financial losses. Often profane, often caustic, and frequently satirical, Revenge of the Trailer Dogs takes up where Garrison’s first audiobook left off, at “The Resort”, a trailer park populated by wackos, racists, Evangelicals, hippies, NRA enthusiasts, transsexuals, homosexuals, and lesbians, each with their own views and prejudices. Unexpected events and new authoritarian management at The Resort leave Ellen and her “old man” pining for friendlier pastures in the Pacific Northwest. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lyssa Graham.

A drama ripped from today’s headlines 1963: As European colonists flee the Congo, a witch doctor finds an abandoned child and teaches him the power of hatred. A hundred miles to the east, six American hippies on a joyride across Africa crash their VW bus into a cemetery. While they wait for repairs, they scandalize the local missionaries and Brenda Carter impulsively marries an African student. 2013: Brenda Carter brings Sarah, her deeply troubled granddaughter, to Africa to explore her roots and meet her grandfather, the man Brenda married and abandoned 50 years before. When a Peace Corps worker is murdered, a baby is kidnapped, and all contact with the outside world is severed by a torrential rain storm, Sarah becomes an unwilling investigator making the connection between the abandoned boy from the Congo, the truth behind her grandmother’s marriage, and 50 years of undercover CIA involvement in the politics of Africa. A compelling tale of Africa today where witch doctors co-exist with modern medicine, where warlords carry cell phones, and where one small nation stands at the crossroads of America’s War on Terror. 1.

Exploding the Phone: The Untold Story of the Te...

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.

This Is All a Dream We Dreamed: An Oral History...

In This Is All a Dream We Dreamed, two of the most well-respected chroniclers of the Dead, Blair Jackson and David Gans, reveal the band's story through the words of its members, their creative collaborators and peers, and a number of diverse fans, stitching together a multitude of voices into a seamless oral tapestry. Capturing the ebullient spirit at the group's core, Jackson and Gans weave together a musical saga that examines the music and subculture that developed into its own economy, touching fans from all walks of life, from penniless hippies to celebrities, and at least one U.S. vice president. This definitive book traces the Dead's evolution from its humble beginnings as a folk/bluegrass band playing small venues in Palo Alto to the feral psychedelic warriors and stadium-filling Americana jam band that blazed all the way through to the 90s. Along the way, we hear from many who were touched by the Dead—from David Crosby and Miles Davis, to Ken Kesey, Carolyn "Mountain Girl" Garcia, and a host of Merry Pranksters, to legendary concert promoter Bill Graham, and others. Throughout their journey the Dead broke (and sometimes rewrote) just about every rule of the music business, defying conventional wisdom and charting their own often unusual course, in the process creating a business model unlike any seen before. Musically, too, they were pioneers, fusing inspired ideas and techniques with intuition and fearlessness to craft an utterly unique and instantly recognizable sound. Their music centered on collective improvisation, spiritual and social democracy, trust, generosity, and fun. They believed that you can make something real, spontaneous, and compelling happen with other musicians if you trust and encourage each other, and jam as if your life depended on it. And when it worked, there was nothing else like it. Whether you're part of the new generation of Deadheads who are just discovering their music or a devoted fan w 1. Language: English. Narrator: Holter Graham, Fred Berman, Oliver Wyman, Arthur Bishop, Eliza Foss, Helen Litchfield, Cynthia Hopkins, David Gans.
