DOUBLE DVD SET CELEBRATING THE LIFE AND MUSIC OF DAVID BOWIE It s virtually all been said, and it will be said 100 times more, but perhaps what has been most shocking about the passing of David Bowie in the opening weeks of 2016 is the most brutal realisation the sad event bought home; that someone who long ago transcended into immortality actually dies like the rest of us. But the sadness will pass and the mourning will fade, and what we will be left with is arguably the finest musical catalogue produced in the rock era, a cause for celebration if ever there was one. This two DVD set plays a crucial part in the genesis of this celebration as it documents and develops the musical history of David Bowie from his earliest ventures in the industry through to his most daring and creative era when nothing appeared to be anything less than possible. Featuring rare and classic footage, interviews with the man himself and those closest to him throughout his career, plus live and studio performance archive, location shoots, news reports and comment from the finest journalists and writers, this collection will go some way to satisfying the huge demand for information and revelations - many previously unknown - about this most mysterious and enigmatic of musical and cultural icons.
Canada´s pre-eminent satirical commentator brings down the curtain on his hugely successful show in this instant number one national best seller.Rick Mercer can always be relied on to provoke a strong reaction - but what he said one fall day in 2017 truly shocked the nation. In a rant posted on social media, the great Canadian satirist announced loud and clear that the current, 15th season of the Rick Mercer Report - the nation´s best-watched and best-loved comedy show - would be the last. After more than 250 episodes, 250 rants and countless miles spent travelling the length and breadth of Canada to do everything from bungee jumping with Rick Hansen to whale watching with Measha Brueggergosman, it was time to move on. What he will do next is still unknown, and Canada eagerly awaits future developments. But meanwhile, we have this book to keep us going. This volume brings together never-before-published rants from the last five seasons of the show, plus a selection of the very best rants from earlier years. And throughout the book, in a series of brilliant new essays, Rick shares his hilarious, moving and at times hair-raising memories from the past 15 years. Remember when he and Jann Arden traveled by helicopter to a terrifying bat cave in a mountain? No - because that trip went so horribly wrong it never made it to the screen. Pierre Berton - what was really in that joint he rolled? (It wasn´t oregano.) What catastrophe took place in Norman Jewison´s bathroom? And can the show still go on when your director in charge is delirious from an allergic reaction? (Yes.) All this and more is revealed by Rick in some of his sharpest and funniest writing yet. 1.

It is autumn of 1938 in London. The Nazis have invaded Austria and are seizing Jewish assets, rumors of the Dachau concentration camp are clouding the air and, despite the cancer ravaging his body, an exiled Dr. Sigmund Freud spends his days anxiously clutching a Cuban cigar between his jaw and a large dental prosthesis he calls ´´The Monster.” He is doing just this when his daughter interrupts his forbidden indulgence with a scolding and news of a foreboding visit from SS Officer Anton Sauerwald. Rather than dragging the doctor into an interrogation room or confiscating the few luxuries Freud was able to secretly take away from Vienna, Sauerwald brings something far more dangerous into the household: a book more deadly than any weapon. Peter Blauner’s The Final Testament reminds us of the power of the written word and weighs the importance of intellectual pursuit against the question of moral responsibility in a time of panic and decay. 1.
