The whole situation began when Duncan Dougal was hiding out in a dumpster (it’s a long and smelly story). Stuck in the garbage, he discovered proof that even though the kids drove off the alien named Broxholm the year before, there is still an alien-in-disguise working as one of their seventh-grade teachers! But which teacher is it? That’s the mystery Duncan must solve to protect the school - and himself. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tyler Aitken, The Full Cast Family.

There are plenty of normal, decent women out there. This book isn't about them. This book is intended for the men who worked steadily over the last 20-plus years, helped their wives raise the kids, attended all their plays and sporting events, mowed the lawn, took out the garbage, fixed the sink, were patient and understanding during that "time of the month", and fully expected to be married for the rest of their lives. Then out of nowhere and for no discernable reason, the women they'd loved, honored, and cherished for the last two-plus decades couldn't stand the sight of them and would do anything, (yes, and I mean anything) to get out of the marriage. If this is what you're going through, then you need to read this book. Why? Because I have been where you are now and you're going to need to know what to expect, how to react, how to defend yourself, and how to cope with what might very well be the most difficult period of your life. 1.

Boo is the highly anticipated debut novel from one of the most incomparable voices in Canadian literature: Bang Crunch author Neil Smith. Oliver Dalrymple, nicknamed Boo because of his pale complexion and staticky hair, is an outcast at his Illinois middle school - more interested in biology and chemistry than the friendship of other kids. But after a tragic accident, Boo wakes up to find himself in a very strange sort of heaven: a town populated by only 13-year-old Americans. While he desperately wants to apply the scientific method to find out how this heaven works (broken glass grows back; flashlights glow without batteries; garbage chutes plummet to nowhere), he's confronted by the greatest mystery of all - his peers. With the help of his classmate, Johnny, who was killed at the same time, Boo begins to figure out what exactly happened to them (and who they really were back in America) through this story about growing up, staying young, and the never-ending heartbreak of being 13. 1.

Dan Gabriel got bit by the comedy bug early in life. Dan grew up immersed in the world-famous San Francisco comedy scene where his mom took him to comedy shows when he was just in grade school. While other kids were trading Garbage Pail Kids, Dan was trying to make his friends listen to Steve Martin albums on his travel-case record player. In college, he stepped up on stage for the first time and was instantly hooked. Ignoring his studies, Dan spent his nights at any open mic night or comedy event he could find. After graduation he began opening for his heroes like Dave Chappelle, Mitch Hedberg, and George Lopez. Since then Dan has worked his way from opening act to nationally touring headliner. Now considered a veteran jokesmith, Dan has appeared on CBS’s Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Showtime, Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, CBS’s Star Search, and NBC’s Late Friday, just to name a few. He was an award-winning writer for Thugs on Film on BBC America and the Winner of the L.A. Take Out Comedy Competition. Take Out opened the doors for Dan to co-develop and host the hit first season of Asia Street Comedy, on AZN TV.

In this riveting audio, an award-winning Canadian author delves into the gritty, gruesome details of the most notorious spree killers, school shooters, and serial killers the world has ever seen. (Hear how Edmund Kemper decapitated his mother's head, used it as a dartboard, and then cut out her voice box and placed it in the garbage disposal.) "Cold Blooded Killers is a blood-curdling collection of some of the most famous and the least known multiple-murder cases. I primarily bought this book as a source file for my own writing as I find the information to be well-informed and easy to read. The very human stories in this massive collection are filled with the tragedies of the victims' encounters with the abnormal criminals who most of us thankfully avoid in our day-to-day lives. Some very eclectic selections and some well-known cases are presented to us by a writer who is always striving to advance in his True Crime expositions. The thing I like most about this author's true-crime writing is that the victims are never forgotten and the murderers are not sensationalized but portrayed for what they really are, sociopathic cold-blooded killers." (William Cook) They will feel that their own lives are over, and aim to take as many people with them as they can. Once their killing spree is over, they most often either commit suicide, or force the police to use deadly force against them, in other words, suicide by cop. Cold Blooded Killers is a set case files, ranging from kids who killed their parent(s), to rampage spree killers, school shootings, and serial killers. This is the author's second collection. 1.

In this challenging book, the author of the celebrated best-selling How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying (which inspired the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical), provides a daring and amusing antidote to those Doomsday prophets who believe that man is destined to destroy himself and planet earth. Shepherd Mead quickly proves that "natural" isn't necessarily good; demonstrates how to use "population" against people (or just how many can we stand?); and describes how to become a scourge of environment-busters. Highlighting his narrative with amusing and telling anecdotes, Mr. Mead discusses new energy concepts, sophisticated waste disposal systems that reclaim everything (even the garbage), frozen and instant electricity, multispectral photography, and some far-out ideas of his own in the area of communications and do-it-yourself ecology. In a lighter vein, he suggests a Pleasure Index as a replacement for GNP (Gross National Product); describes how we can keep people from a future that's already in the past; how the future home can be an electric and electronic paradise (or hell, depending on the individual viewer); electric education and the university in decades to come; improving people through "germinal choice"; benevolent brainwashing; the Shepherd Mead Symbiotic Super Box, transduction, and advanced cloning. Then there's the very special Magical Population-Reducing People Crib (it's really wild and guaranteed to discourage childbearing); Super Sports Heroes of the Future (part man and part animal - like the greatest middle distance runner in history who won an Olympic gold medal and the Kentucky Derby. And he can run with or without a jockey. Or the great Australian female high jumper who qualified with two kids in her pouch, but was later disbarred when she was caught shaving). Sexual-social problems in the future also come under the keen scrutiny of Mr. Mead. What will become of sin when we have plea 1. Language: English. Narrator: Randy Hames.
