Leslie Phillips Box Set
13,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

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.

It is May 1971 and Archdeacon Sidney Chambers is walking in a bluebell wood with his daughter Anna and their ageing Labrador, Byron, when they stumble upon a body. Thrust into another murder investigation, Sidney discovers a world of hippies and psychedelic plants, where permissive behaviour seems to hide something darker. This is the first of many disturbing secrets that Sidney unearths: a celebrated photographer is accused of rape; a priceless religious text vanishes from a Cambridge college; and Sidney's own nephew goes missing. Endeavouring to fit his clerical duties in around the demands of sleuthing, Sidney continues to reflect on the divine mysteries of love, life and faith, while wrestling with the earthly problems of parish scandals, the challenges of parenthood, and a great loss. 1.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Remember those long sultry summer days at camp, the sun setting over the lake as you sang "Kumbaya"? Well, Mindy Schneider remembers her summer at Camp Kin-A-Hurra in 1974 just a wee bit differently. Not a Happy Camper chronicles a young girl's adventures at a camp where the sun never shines, the breakfast cereal dates back to the summer of 1922, and many of the counselors speak no English. For eight eye-opening and unforgettable weeks, Mindy and her eccentric band of friends - including Autumn Evening Schwartz, the daughter of hippies, who communicates with the dead, and the sleep-dancing, bibliophile Betty Gilbert - keep busy feuding in color wars, failing at sports, and uncovering the camp's hidden past. As she focuses on landing the perfect boyfriend and longs for her first kiss, Mindy unexpectedly stumbles across something infinitely grander: herself. Hilarious, charming, and glowing with nostalgia, Mindy Schneider's memoir is a must-listen for anyone who's ever been to summer camp, or wishes they had. 1. Language: English.

Exploding the Phone: The Untold Story of the Te...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

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.

Wildcat! The Films of Marjoe Gortner
26,96 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

FROM REAL-LIFE CHILD EVANGELIST TO ON-SCREEN PSYCHO HIPPY! Born in sunny Long Beach, California, Marjoe Gortner found early fame as a child evangelist, ordained at the age of four and travelling the revival circuit across America, where his Pentecostal preachings helped bring him to national recognition as something of an infant freakshow. After a period of inactivity throughout his teenage years, Gortner returned to the pulpit in his mid-twenties, using his name and past fame to expose the fraudulent side of preaching, via the Oscar-winning 1972 documentary Marjoe. Gortner used the publicity and notoriety generated by Marjoe as his springboard to Hollywood, launching a new career as an actor, which saw his charismatic good looks put to work in a string of cult exploitation, disaster, sci-fi, horror and drive-in action films, including Earthquake (1974), Bobbie Jo and the Outlaw (1976), Food of the Gods (1976) and the galvanising psychological thriller When You Comin' Back, Red Ryder (1979), where he excelled in the role of Teddy, an angry Vietnam vet out to show the inhabitants of a small New Mexico diner that not all perceived hippies chose to live by a credo of peace and love. Filed with rare photos, stunning movie poster art and interviews with those who worked alongside him, Wildcat! The Films of Marjoe Gortner takes the reader on a journey through the celluloid career of a man whose childhood was often as strange and outrageous as the films and television shows he appeared in.

Bennington Girls Are Easy: A Novel , Hörbuch, D...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Charlotte Silver dazzles with a ruefully funny coming-of-age novel that follows two recent Bennington grads who are determined to make it in the Big Apple. Bennington College, founded in 1932 as a suitable refuge for the wayward daughters of good families, maintains its saucy reputation for attracting free spirits. There, acres outnumber students, the faculty is composed of fading hippies, and clothing is largely optional. Or, as J. D. Salinger put it in Franny and Zooey: A Bennington type "looked like she'd spent the whole train ride in the john, sculpting or painting or something, or as though she had a leotard on under her dress." Cassandra Puffin and Sylvie Furst met in high school but cement what they ardently believe will be everlasting friendship on Bennington's idyllic Vermont campus. Graduation sees Sylvie moving to New York City, where, later in their 20s, Cassandra joins her. These early, delirious years are spent decorating their Fort Greene apartment with flea market gems, dating "artists", and trying to figure out what they're doing with their lives. The girls are acutely and caustically observant of the unique rhythms of the city but tone deaf to their own imperfections, which eventually drives a wedge between them. Equal parts heartfelt and hilarious, Bennington Girls Are Easy is a novel about female friendships - how one word from a confidante can lift you up or tear you down - and how difficult it is to balance someone else's devastatingly funny lapses in judgment with your own professional and personal missteps. 1.

Do you always feel stressed?Are you always anxious about the future?Do you feel like your brain never turns off?Stop right there. Take a second and take a deep breath. We are about to embark on a life-changing journey.When it comes to relaxing and resting the body, most people do this quite well. However, when it comes to relaxing the mind, many individuals struggle and cannot seem to give the mind the relaxation it needs.Many individuals think that meditating is something only Buddhist monks do. Others see it as some artsy-fartsy marketing scam or, even worse, something reserved for hippies blown away on drugs. To meditate is to observe thoughts and feelings without judging them, says John Kabat-Zinn. Meditation could be like a gymnasium where we train to let thoughts and feelings pass without clinging to them, a bit like "opening ourselves to life" without pretending anything and also without doing or observing anything else. The moment we realize that we have become hooked on a thought and we refocus, we are meditating. In fact, the Tibetans called the place where they meditated gompa, which means nothing other than "training room".To meditate is to put your mind in the same place as your feet. If you understand that every time you bring your mind to the present, you inhabit your body, you are no longer on autopilot; you are meditating. You will see that meditating, in essence, does not take time. Meditation has become common to many people. Even people working for Google have their daily meditation space to improve creativity, humor, performance, and group connection.For someone that is new to the meditation space, desiring peace, relaxation, and clarity...listening to a guided meditation is the best thing you can do for a beginner.So, make sure you have got yourself a nice pair of headphones or earphones, tuck yourself into bed, close your eyes, and prepare for a new world of relaxation.P 1.
