Classicism’s prehistory begins in 4th millennium Middle East; from this point developing – via oral resurgences – in Egypt, Crete, Greece, Rome and Europe where it dominates... More > – if challenged by the Picturesque – until the middle of the 19th century, when it slides into becoming a costume from when a new way, called Modernism, emerges; the two competing over the next century in a sort of peace, based on the failure of the tabula rasa and on discovering the vitality of the city as a beneficent chaos.  There follows a sort of free-for-all, the weak and the strong embraced in a sort of dance.  Buried in this overview are passions of great intensity: Leonardo’s “Vitruvian man”, Bugs Bunny and Duchamp’s “bottle-rack”.   Enough time has elapsed to review this development, to understand this long tradition, to see how this tradition re-emerges as Modernism within Post-Modern Classicism at the end of the 20th century.  In the 21st century, all bets are off! < Less

Tales of Old Cullman County, Alabama By Robin Sterling
Paperback: $45.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
When people think of Cullman County and its history, often the first things that come to mind are its German ancestry, Ave Maria Grotto, strawberries, Jim Folsom and Guy Hunt. But there's lots... More > more. Organized in 1877, the county is the second youngest county in the state. Despite its relative recent creation, Cullman has a rich and often tumultuous past. Few remember the old stage road, ghost towns, and struggles along the railroad line. Then there's the little known Cleveland County, the Bug Tussle Mail Fraud Caper, a vanished railroad line, and the man who foretold of a railroad wreck at Holmes Gap. These, and other little known, secret, and hidden topics make up the history of Cullman. This book is not a definitive or comprehensive history of Cullman, but attempts to fill in a few of the gaps and illuminate topics skimmed over or skipped in other books. Those who think they know the history of Cullman will be surprised and amazed at what they find within these pages!< Less

For many years, the Khmer Rouge, a communist regime, had been training soldiers in the forest and creating an army to take over the country of Cambodia. On April 17, 1975, the Khmer Rouge paraded... More > through Phnom Penh, the capitol, to exterminate the city of “bugs”. People were first told that they would temporarily have to leave their homes for three days. Some of the adults knew better than to believe this story because rumors had been spreading all over Cambodia about the terrible things occurring in villages and towns. People from the villages and towns had been coming into Phnom Penh and living in parks or any open area in the capitol because their homes were taken over or destroyed by the Khmer Rouge soldiers. Cambodia was a peaceful and self-sufficient country, full of people who only desired peace. We came to believe the propaganda being told because there was not an alternate option. Questions became fears, fears turned into belief that the Khmer Rouge soldiers would protect us.< Less

Author and musician Mitch Alden wanted to record a new CD. Months after running a personal best at the 2009 New York City Marathon, he decided a new full-length CD would be his next goal. During an... More > early spring run, however, the marathon bug emerged from winter’s grip and took a bite out of him. As he ran, he formed the crazy idea of combining his passion for singing and running into one epic experience: he could record his CD at a friend’s studio in Chicago and race the Chicago Marathon immediately afterward. Though he knew he could accomplish each individually, he wondered if his body would be able to withstand the many high-energy days in the studio only to race 26.2 miles when he was done. Alden shares his thoughts in Musical Miles, a memoir that is equal parts running, music and life lessons. It covers Alden’s four-month training journey for the 2010 Chicago Marathon, exposes the mind of a passionate and driven independent artist, and attempts to answer the question of why we run.< Less

When arriving in Rio, the position and the company had collapsed. Without any knowledge of the Portuguese language, no personal or business connections or prospects for employment, we were... More > immediately destitute. We were ejected from our hotel with only the clothes we wore. For a time, we lived secretly in an office building which was illegal to be in after dark. What food we ate was pilfered off of left over plates at outdoor cafes, or taken from a storage closet full of canned sardines from the importers office whose floor we slept on. After many months we were offered work at a bug infested English Yacht across the bay from Rio. At last we had a bed and food! The description of our lives with unbelievable challenges sufficed our love... (Humorously written) Eventually we were offered remedial work in the Brazilian Interior (Jungle) Life in the Interior, and the incredible adventures. All kept in a diary, became worthy of writing this book.< Less
