The Amazing Dr Clitterhouse VHS starring Edward G Robinson Humphrey Bogart Claire Trevor Allen Jenkins Donald Crisp

Why Buy A The Amazing Dr Clitterhouse VHS starring Edward G Robinson Humphrey Bogart Claire Trevor Allen Jenkins Donald Crisp?
A stylish, often amusing crime drama, this 1938 feature revolves around a central, improbable plot twist that consciously serves its casting against type: as the eponymous doctor, Edward G. Robinson, who had helped define the Warner Bros. style for gritty gangster sagas, jettisons his signature snarl in favor of a plummy, vaguely English accent that underlines his urbane sophistication. Dr. Clitterhouse is a creature of privilege who embarks on a criminal life not out of desperation, but rather through intellectual curiosity; instead of slouch hats and suits, he has marcelled hair and first appears in white tie and tails. He begins pulling off perfect jewel thefts as research into the criminal mind, but his gradual immersion in New Yorks shadowy demimonde of thieves and fences eventually finds the good doctor between those two worlds.

Robinsons principal foils stick closer to their studio strong suits. Humphrey Bogart is Rocks Valentine, a sturdy if familiar variation on the hoods and have-nots that were his early stock in trade at the studio. Bogarts fence and former paramour is Jo Keller, played by Claire Trevor as glamorous, streetwise, and otherwise decent, apart from her knack for larceny. When the doctor asks her to fence his glittering contraband, shes intrigued, and Clitterhouse, known to the hoods only as the Professor, becomes their strategist. Jo is clearly falling for him, while Rocks is visibly jealous of the fastidious strangers rising influence and romantic rivalry.

In keeping with its ultimately goofy premise, the story navigates some eccentric plot turns with an aplomb that can be credited to the solid cast (including other studio stalwarts such as Allen Jenkins, Ward Bond, and Donald Crisp) and the three principals, who would work off each other to much more riveting effect a decade later in Key Largo. –Sam Sutherland

Joy in the Morning by P G Wodehouse

Why Buy A Joy in the Morning by P G Wodehouse?
Trapped in the rural hell-hole of the Steeple Bumpleigh with his bossy ex-fiancee, Florence Craye, her fire-breathing father, Lord Worplesdon, her frightful Boy-Scout brother, Edwin, and her beefy new betrothed, Stilton Cheesewright, Bertie Wooster finds himself walking a diplomatic tightrope. With Florence threatening to ditch Stilton for Bertie, and Stilton threatening to trample on Berties insides if she does, things look black until Jeeves arrives to save the day. One of Wodehouses most sparkling comedies, replete with an attendant cast of tyrannical aunts, demon children and literary fatheads.

Wodehouse at his best
This is a great, funny book. It may be my favorite Jeeves & Wooster story.

Classic Jeeves and Wooster
Picture a story involving a snarl of relatives and lovers tangled in a web of misunderstandings. If tragedy ensues, you have your standard soap opera. If, on the other end, the results are more comic, you have a P.G. Wodehouse novel. I can’t really judge soaps, but it’s probably safe to say that they range from good to bad. With Wodehouse, however, the quality is almost always dead-on-great, and never more so than with his Jeeves and Wooster stories, as Joy in the Morning once again demonstrates.

As the novel opens, Bertie Wooster has just emerged from being in the soup once again. What this soup was and how he escaped it is the story that follows. In this case, Bertie is coerced into going to one of his least favorite places, Steeple Bumpleigh, home to his dread Aunt Agatha. (Is there a more terrifying figure in comic fiction than Agatha?) Her husband, Bertie’s Uncle Percival, needs Bertie to participate in a ruse that will help cinch a business deal. It is not a job that Bertie relishes, and the only the assurance of Aunt Agatha’s absence allows him to screw up the courage to make the trip.

Of course, there are complications. For one thing, Percival’s ward Nobby has fallen for Boko Fittleworth, and while the love is mutual, Percival – whose consent is needed for their marriage – has nothing but loathing for Boko. A scheme is needed to win over Percival, and Bertie will be recruited to play a part. Also at Steeple Bumpleigh is Florence Craye, an ex-fiancee of Bertie’s who is now engaged to the easily jealous policeman, Stilton Cartwright. An argument and a misunderstanding will find her re-betrothed to Bertie and him a target of Stilton’s wrath.

Bertie is a well-meaning but not-so-bright fellow who tends to get into trouble through accident and the manipulation of others. Left alone, life would be easy, but there are too many who force Bertie’s involvement. Fortunately, there is his valet, Jeeves, who is able to solve nearly any problem.

The joy of reading a Jeeves and Wooster novel is Bertie’s delightful narration with its unique enhancements to the English language. This is a book that is pure fun with no great insights or deep characters. It may be fluff, but it is five-star fluff and a great diversion.

Another great Wodehouse offering!
We can forget the recession when we read Wodehouse – our problems seem so far away when we smile and laugh – and laugh you will do when you read this book. I really can recommend it with a warm smile.

Another collection that any Wodehouse fan will really love is the rather rare ‘Man of Means’, really witty and all about money!

A Man Of Means: 6 British Humor Classics


One of Wodehouse’s Best
Joy in the Morning, also published under the name of Jeeves in the Morning, is perhaps the best of the Bertie and Jeeves novels. I can think of no higher praise for any book.

All the elements for a successful Bertie and Jeeves novel are here: love affairs go off the rails, imperiling Bertie’s status as a bachelor; Bertie’s actions to right things fail; and Jeeves comes to the rescue. In addition, there are some special features: Bertie’s Uncle Percival, Lord Worplesdon, the second husband of Bertie’s Aunt Agatha (the one who, as I recall, “chews ground glass and conducts human sacrifices at the full moon”) makes his only appearance in the Wodehouse oeuvre, as I believe is also the case for Boko Fittleworth, whose actions go awry just as often as Bertie’s.

It’s all held together, of course, by Bertie’s extraordinary narration.

I have read this book perhaps a dozen times, and I still laugh aloud at least once on nearly every page.

Where To Buy Stand by Sly the Family Stone At The Lowest Price?

Stand by Sly  the Family Stone

Why Buy A Stand by Sly the Family Stone?
In 1967, Sly Stone was unabashed: his debut, A Whole New Thing, claimed high ground–it was new, big time. He knew it. By 1969, the newness was transformed, Sly was imploring listeners to Stand! and breaking new ground. The snarl of Dont Call Me Nigger, Whitey with its droning organ and wah-wah guitar had claws, it was unmistakable. And the full-on blast of harmonica, fuzz guitars, and horns that opens I Want to Take You Higher just cemented the claim: Music would unite and fight and kick and get you high. Everyday People almost seems an anomaly in this company, a breezy harmony vocal backing, simple piano framing, long horn lines, and a churchy chorus. Its the biggest hit from Stand!, a true pop gem. What you get with the rest of the album (and Slys early catalog overall) is sui generis. Sing a Simple Song has scouring, wordless shouts, a heavy beat backed by multiple voices half-atop each other, horn riffs jetting across guitar riffs, and an abrupt, scrambling end. Its a tight and tough embrace, an open door. Its 1969. –Andrew Bartlett

The pinnacle.
In 1969, Sly & the Family Stone finally found their voice with “Stand!”. Continuing his fusion of nearly all sounds he could find while redefining what funk was, leader Sly Stone crafted an album with no less than 4 charting singles, topped off by #1 hit “Everyday People”.

The album is dominated by something entirely new– Stone has taken the band’s funk sounds and injected some space, some openness into the music. Take the aformentioned “Everyday People”– it’s a funk song, there’s no doubt, but it’s got a breeziness to it that’s somewhat indefinable (that and an irrestible chorus shouted passionately by the band with Sly on top). Likewise title track “Stand!” has this same openness, almost a California pop song to its verses, again with Stone’s soulful vocal leading the way.

But there’s something else on here as well, an almost claustrophobically dense sound that’s beginning to emerge (and that would define the album’s followup “There’s a Riot Goin’ On”). I think in some capacity it’s evident everywhere, but it can most be heard in “Don’t Call Me N*gger, Whitey” and the 12 minute jam “Sex Machine”– a dark, bleak sound that doesn’t lend itself to open structure but somehow maintains the same irresistability that the rest of the material has. On the former, Sly Stone sings the chorus with a venom over the dense funk dirge, the latter is wholly instrumental, but in roughly the same vein. Both also feature Sly Stone singing through a vocodor run through a wah-wah pedal to extraordinary effect. One thing about them that’s definitely, even at their extended lengths (nearly 6 minutes and over 13 minutes respectively), both of them are incredibly intense and intriguing. Both also highly informed the future of music, be it Miles Davis’ superb ’70s records or pretty m uch the entire genres of soul, funk, r&b and hip hop.

Perhaps when the album does best is when it sits somewhere in between these– “Somebody’s Watching You” wiht its laid back groove and great dirty guitars ends up being one of the creepiest recordings on record and “I Want to Take You Higher” (a remake of “Higher” from a couple years ago) takes the claustrophobia and uses it to push ecstacy to new heights, proving to be downright overwhelming.

This reissue remasters the record and appends a handful of bonus tracks– mostly single mixes and a couple unreleased recordings and includes detailed liner notes. Sonically, this improvement is fantastic– the record is crisp and clear and presented as you’d like it to be. The only complaint I have is the choice to leave off singles “Hot Fun in the Summertime” and double A-side “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)”/”Everybody is a Star”. The three pieces were slated for a followup to “Stand!” that never materialized and ended up being stuck on a “Greatest Hits” record. While strictly speaking they don’t belong either here or with this record’s followup, it’d've been nice if they were included somewhere with this batch of remasters (for anyone looking, they can be found on “The Essential Sly & the Family Stone”).

Bottom line on “Stand!” is that it’s one of the great albums of it’s era, and together with “There’s a Riot Goin’ On” forms the peak of Sly & the Family Stone. This is essential listening. Highly recommended.

I WANNA TAKE YOU HIGHER! man, back in the day Sly was the bomb! If I remember correctly Sly was the first concert I ever saw, back in 197x at Madison Square Garden. I used to wear this album out. You can’t go wrong with this CD in your collection. Great songs with catchy arrangements, especially the horns. And oh so funky! C’mon now, you gotta have some Sly in your collection.

‘Stand’is where Sly & The Family Stone’s musical experiences onA Whole New Thing,Dance to the Music and Life gestated into something totally unique.Those albums found Sly waltzing over,under and around the funk;on ‘Stand’ he dives right into it.Of course most of us know the hits by heart-the title track,the punchy rock of “I Wanna Take Your Higher” and of course the immortal “Everyday People”.In fact what is so important here is that this marks the moment Sly became a full flegded album artist because the peppy “Somebody’s Watching You” is one of those classics-that-never-was-a-hit.As far as the funk goes there’s huge handfuls of that in “Sing A Simple Song” and “You Can Make It If You Try” alone.Still neither of those are enough to keep the totally dangerous “Don’t Call Me Nigger,Whitey” in check;it’s message is right on time with it’s us vs. them humor and NASTY fuzz bass.And as far as fuzz bass goes Larry Graham packs almost more into the instrumental “Sex Machine” then the song can handle,but of course it does in a FUNK OVERLOADED kind of way.If ‘Stand’ itself spoke to and about the cultural,racial and political issues in the world and in music in the late 60′s then the MEAN instrumental bonus “My Brain (Zig Zag)”,just showing the complete musical inspiration Sly and his band were during 1969-70.If truth be known that inspiration may have been his musical downfull soon to come.But while it lasted,it was amazing.’Stand’ is not only a classic funk album and a classic Sly release but a milestone in all of music of the 20′th century.

1919 Volume Two of the USA Trilogy by John Dos Passos – Save 22% Today!

1919 Volume Two of the USA Trilogy by John Dos Passos

Why Buy A 1919 Volume Two of the USA Trilogy by John Dos Passos?
With 1919, the second volume of his U.S.A. trilogy, John Dos Passos continues his vigorous and sweeping panorama of twentieth-century America (Forum), lauded on publication of the first volume not only for its scope, but also for its groundbreaking style. Again, employing a host of experimental devices that would inspire a whole new generation of writers to follow, Dos Passos captures the many textures, flavors, and background noises of modern life with a cinematic touch and unparalleled nerve.

1919 opens to find America and the world at war, and Dos Passoss characters, many of whom we met in the first volume, are thrown into the snarl. We follow the daughter of a Chicago minister, a wide-eyed Texas girl, a young poet, a radical Jew, and we glimpse Woodrow Wilson, Theodore Roosevelt, and the Unknown Soldier.

Highly Engaging and Entertaining Art
This second book in the U.S.A. trilogy seems more accomplished than the first. While I tend to believe this is because Dos Passos had gotten into the rhythm of the novel, it could be that, by the second book, the reader has become more acquainted with the experimental aspects. At any rate, this book, no less than the first, left me in awe. Dos Passos is a writer of the highest order.

While the first book focused more on economic issues in the lives of everyday Americans, this novel shifts focus to the war. Few of the primary characters are enthusiastic about the war and, thus, the cross-section of America presented cannot be said to be ideologically representative anymore than the first was ethnically or culturally representative. And yet the scope of the novel is broad. Again, Dos Passos’ subject is America rather than individual Americans. While the individuals are interesting, they are not essential as individuals.

Dos Passos’ ability to set a scene is as good as anyone’s. In the following, two characters from the first novel are sitting at a small café in Europe just after Eveline has asked an intimate question of J.W.

“Eveline sat looking at him [J.W.] with her lips a little apart, her cheeks blazing. `Maybe it’s taken the war to teach us how to live,’ he said. `We’ve been too much interested in money and material things, it’s taken the French to show us how to live. Where back home in the States could you find a beautiful atmosphere like this?’ J.W. waved his arm to include in a sweeping gesture the sea, the tables crowded with women dressed in bright colors and men in their best uniforms, the bright glint of blue light on glasses and cutlery. The waiter mistook his gesture and slyly substituted a full bottle for the empty bottle in the champagnepail.”

This is as close as most of the characters get to introspection. The characters of this novel, as most Americans yesterday and today, live their lives rather than ruminate about them. Where J.W. perhaps regret his focus on work and material things over relationships, other characters’ lives are ordered primarily around relationships or the moment rather than about succeeding in any traditional sense.

One character sums up his view after breaking up with a girl he had impregnated: “Gee, I’m glad I’m not a girl, he kept thinking. He had a splitting headache. He locked his door, got undressed and put out the light. When he opened the window a gust of raw rainy air came into the room and made him feel better. It was just like Ed said, you couldn’t do anything without making other people miserable. A hell of a rotten world.”

It may be a hell of a rotten world, but in Dos Passos’ hands, it is a beautiful one all the same. Dos Passos’ vision can seem barren of the hope and optimism usually associated with the “American dream.” Dos Passos is not interested in the popular illusion, however, but in America as it was lived by ordinary people. This trilogy may be the true height of American literature. At the least, it should be considered essential reading.

While this book could be read alone, to fully appreciate the connections between characters, you must start with the first book in the trilogy, THE 42nd PARALLEL. I highly recommend doing so. The U.S.A. trilogy is a truly astounding literary achievement and should be read as a piece.

The one thing that enslaves people more than any other to the servitude of war is nationalism
Those words, written by John Dos Passos while serving as a Red Cross Ambulance Driver during the First World War, provide the underlying theme for “1919″, Volume II of Dos Passos’ “USA Trilogy”.

Dos Passos is one of the (now) lesser known literary giants of the first half of the 20th-century. At the height of his fame in the 1930s he found himself on the same pedestal as Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Faulkner. By the time Volume III (The Big Money) was released in 1936, Jean-Paul Sartre hailed him as “the greatest writer of our time”. Edmund Wilson’s review went so far as to claim that Dos Passos was “the first of our writers, with the possible exception of Mark Twain, who has successfully used colloquial American for a novel of the highest artistic seriousness.” Dos Passos’ literary reputation began to change during the Spanish Civil War. Dos Passos, along with Hemingway and many other literary figures including George Orwell, made his way to Spain to assist in the Republican cause. Like Orwell, Dos Passos was deeply affected by the brutal infighting amongst Republican supporters. In the case of Dos Passos he was deeply distressed by murder of a friend (anarchist and Johns Hopkins Professor Jose Robles) apparently executed by Stalinist cadres for his nonconforming radicalism. Hemingway mocked Dos Passos for his unmanly concern for his friend. Dos Passos reports that he told Hemingway that “the question I keep putting to myself is what’s the use of fighting a war for civil liberties, if you destroy civil liberties in the process?” Hemingway replied “civil liberties, [__ _ _ ]. Are you with us or against us?” It is no surprise that Dos Passos’ next book was criticized severely. The New Masses magazine referred to it as a “crude piece of Trotskyist agit-prop”. Dos Passos never reclaimed the popularity he had achieved with the USA Trilogy.

1919 takes up where “42nd Parallel” left off. President Wilson, despite his 1916 campaign slogan “He kept us out of War” had taken the United States to war against Germany in 1917. Many of the characters found in 42nd Parallel, including Eleanor Stoddard, J. Ward Moorehouse, Eveline Hutchins, and Joe Williams find their to France. Along with a few new characters, their lives intersect and divert throughout the war and the subsequent peace talks at Versailles. With the exception of J. War Moorehouse these are all relatively `little people’ who have no real influence on the course of events but who simply must endure them.

In addition to the stories of these fictional characters, 1919 is interspersed with mini-biographies of real people, newsreel clippings that place the story in a social a political context, and a series of autobiographical sketches in which Dos Passos steps out from the story and provides his own personal context to the times. The writing is terse and enjoyable. The highlights of the book for me were his biographical sketches. His mini-biography of Woodrow Wilson (“Meester Vilson”), J.P. Morgan, Theodore Roosevelt and Joe Hill say more about those men than many full length biographies. His closing biography, of the Unknown Soldier (“The Body of an American”) picked from among the unidentified American casualties of the war,is a beautiful, politically charged piece of writing.”

The use of the Camera Eye, biographies, and newsreels create a literary mosaic that leaves the reader feeling he is in the middle of a multi-media experience within the confines of a book. Later generations of writers have adopted this technique to great success. E.L. Doctorow’s Ragtime is a case in point. (Doctorow wrote an appreciative foreword to this edition.)

1919 is a worthy successor to 42nd Parallel that leaves this 21st-century reader with a feeling that he had stepped back almost 100 years to a different time and place in American history. I would only note that his book will not be appreciated unless one has read “42nd Parallel”. It is an investment in time that no reader with an interest in political (or politicized) fiction will regret making.

Great book – problematic edition
This is a great book – arguably the best of the trilogy, although it should be said that none of these books really stands on its own; U.S.A. is a single book in three volumes. Compared to other versions of Dos Passos, Mariner’s quality paperback editions leave a great deal to be desired. Even the Signet mass markets featured the original Reginald Marsh illustrations, which add a great deal of texture to the experience of reading the novel. I don’t know why they weren’t included here. Their absence almost feels pretentious, part of a general move toward the more respectable, ‘literary’ QP format, after Signet’s humbler, plebian MMs. Moreover, Mariner’s 1919 is littered with printing errors, sometimes two or three in a paragraph. Given the fragmented nature of [much of] Dos Passos’s text to begin with, Mariner’s contribution of spelling mistakes and other typos can make a conscientious reader feel paranoid. Read the book, but seek out another edition.

Sexy New York girls captured in all their wild cuteness
Suds, stockings, panties, roller skates, a bra tug or war, and some of your favorite porn stars like Joanna Angel and Dana Dearmond are just some of the delights that await you in much-admired photographer Brenda Staudenmaier’s debut book. While most of the models have the trademarke Buring Angel punk tattoo look, some complete with a snarl, there are also some very cute, but still sexy, shots – fellating a curling iron, licking a happy face lollipop, baring everything against a graffiti-covered wall or on a rooftop with New York City as the backdrop.

The range of photos and types of models is remarkable, and while they certainly have things in common, Staudenmaier seeks out each girl’s special charm, whether a look or a body part or a pose or setting. These photos are vibrant, daring, bold and sexy, without ever resorting to clichés. There are girls with guns and girls in latex. There are lots of very cute pairs of underwear. I’m partial to one stunning redhead and many of the two-girl sets. All of these photos, taken for the site Burning Angel, are very direct; though posed, they have a candidness about them that lets the models’ beauty, as well as their quirks, shine through. My favorites here are ones I call the “whoops” photos, ones where the girls are looking at the camera like, “Whoops, I forgot I had my clothes off. Silly me!” There’s something slyly sexy about those shots, like Barely Legal girls gone wild in a way Joe Francis would never condone. They’re wild because they allow themselves to be, and so does Staudenmaier.

Beautiful, Sensual, Punk!
This book is definitely great. I am a huge punk, rock and roll fan and the photographs of these girls are beautiful. I was very impressed when I got it in the mail from amazon, I assumed it would be bigger and with a dust cover, but it was a nice beautiful portable durable hardcover book shrink wrapped so when you open it, its in mint perfect brand new condition, and no annoying dust cover, just a good quality book.

This is a must have for all punk rock type girl fans. The pictures are very beautiful in good quality. There are so many different themes of girls outside, girls inside, girls with guns, almost every girl has a tattoo or a whole body full of them and are very interesting to look at the tattoos and their style, girl on girl kissing and stuff, girls in latex, girls holding goldfish, but “The Lovely Brenda” the photographer, does an amazing job of mixing the color of the girls clothes and body with the surrounding background so it matches perfectly. 90% of the girls in the book were beyond beautiful, and of course everyone has their own tastes but there were a few girls I was like, blah bad picture and unattractive girl, but I love the book and recommend it definitely.

On a last note, PLEASE do not buy this for your 13 year old son. This is not a book of just models like you’d see in teen magazines, these girls are naked. Breasts, and other female parts are completely visible and pointed out! Keep in mind its for adults, and shouldn’t be kept where kids can get it or they’re gonna start asking questions they are too young to ask!

Mad Sexiness for the Book Shelf
This book is a must have for any fan of Burning Angel or Graffiti. A perfect collection of Brooklyn’s finest starlets posed provocatively often in front of some of the best street art in the US.

Brenda’s photography is well known to anyone that has read Vice Magazine’s popular “Do’s and Don’ts” column. Her work with Burning Angel has helped define the alt porn world.

Basically, if you like beautiful girls with tattoos, attitudes and incredibly sexy bodies then buy this book!
