Dylan, Bob - Bob Dylan - 1941-1966 Tales From A Golden Age (Special Edition)
Dylan, Bob - Bob Dylan - 1941-1966 Tales From A Golden Age (Special Edition)
This is the first Dylan documentary in the series produced by UK-based Chrome Dreams. This one is far less necessary than the rest of the series. If you have watched "No Direction Home," then it really adds nothing much to what you know. Indeed, it suffers mightily in comparison to remainder of the series, which I have reviewed elsewhere.

Although released in 2004, it was obviously filmed at least somewhat earlier. The film appears to be standard definition video. Unlike the others in the series, this film also suffers from lack of access to Dylan's music. The film is interlaced with music that evokes Dylan, but which is a poor substitute. The producers seemed to have had no access to the album cuts of the songs. Additionally, simply by the nature of the time period covered, they seems to have had little access to any original, alternative, performances either.

This documentary features extensive involvement by Clinton Heylin. Mr. Heylin is, himself, a very controversial figure among Dylan critics. That said, I appreciate Mr. Heylin's own critical contributions, generally, and find his lack of slavish worship of Dylan refreshing. However, this film covers the period before the "Crash," and the title gives away the fact that the interviewees consider the period Dylan's "Golden Age." Any negative criticism is very muted and essentially consists of: "This album was great, but not as great as the one that came after."

It is important to understand that this documentary, like the rest in the series, attempts to cover the process of the making of Dylan's music, the critical response to it at the time of its release, and a reassessment of it with the passage of time. In that respect, I would have to say that it fails. The film covers a period that is well documented in print and on film and really offers nothing to anyone but the most casual of Dylan fans. I would have to say that it is unnecessary, except as the first segment in the rest of the series. Unlike the subsequent entries in the series, which I do recommend highly, this film offers little in the way of fascinating insights into the albums and songs.

Piña Colada Scent Professional Air Freshener Pads - Remove The Worst Smells with These Heavy Duty Pads (60 Pads Per Pack) (Piña Colada Scent)
I felt I needed to write my experience with this product to give customers more information to make a decision. I was excited I had found a cinnamon scented auto air freshener that some people gave good reviews. I could not give this a good review. I opened the package and took one out and it smelled somewhat strong. I put in my car with windows up and used the car later on. I could not even smell any cinnamon at all. I only smelled the bad smell I was trying to get rid of. I would not recommend this product at all, it is total waste of money and time. I am returning this item in search of a product that really works.

Pedí el libro por error en blanco y negro y lo devolví y pedí la versión en color. Asumo mi error al hacer el pedido, pero en mi opinión, este libro no tiene sentido publicarlo en blanco y negro, puesto que es una guía donde lo interesante es poder ver las fotos de los diferentes colores de las zapatillas Jordan.
Tened cuidado cuando pidáis este libro, y asegurados que estáis pidiendo el que realmente queréis.

Loved the product but expected it to be bigger than it was as I was going to use it as a table setting for the birthday boy's table. The item was made out of a strong plastic and had the same stance as the image. However it was only about 5 inches tall. My nephew loved it anyways as he was gifted with it after the birthday party. The container was filled with coins; it's a bank so it served a dual purpose.

These 6” x 4” books are perfect for a seven-month-old +. They are tiny enough for little hands, very sturdy and because of the glossy pages, they can be wiped down very easily. That’s a win-win especially with what we have gone through in 2020; cleanliness means everything! I ended up purchasing two boxed sets for my niece who is currently eight months old and using them daily. She can hold them, they are not too heavy.

I ordered this book which is part of a trilogy. It arrived packaged protectively and is in wonderful condition. I could not be happier with the transaction and will happily purchase from the seller again. Many thanks from a happy customer.

Una edición espectacular, a mayor tamaño de las que estamos acostumbrados en el manga (el que tenía originalmente planeado Tezuka para publicar), con tapas imitando a piel. La historia engancha de principio a fin a lo largo de sus cientos de páginas. Combina páginas en blanco y negro con otras en bitono rojizo, tal y como aparecieron originalmente en el formato revista. Una joya del maestro de la historieta japonesa.
My Secret History
My Secret History
Outstanding biographical work by Theroux, couched as fiction to allow for creative license. The book takes you through the world of Andre Parent, a writer who travels Africa and Europe, living the surface life of an upstanding individual, concealing the secret life of an energized sexually charged vagabond.
Chapter 1 (Altar Boy) is about Andre's coming of age, and outgrowing his parents expectations.
Chapter 2 (Whale Steaks) covers his oscilation between his love of a slightly older girlfriend, and his fascination with someone from his parent's generation.
Chapter 3 (African Girls) talks about his adventures in the peace corps, largely oriented around sleeping with the local girls.
Chapter 4 (Bush Baby) is the continuing story of his adventures, including some encounters with a V.S. Naipul lookalike. (Interesting as Naipul was a major influence on Theroux's career)
Chapter 5 (Leaving Siberia) has a double meaning. It is about Parent physically leaving Siberia on a travel writing trip, and an emotional exit from Siberia after learning of his wife's infidelity.
Chapter 6 (Two of Everything) is about the double life that Parent lives - one with his wife, and another with his mistress. It chronicles an identical trip through India with both women. This is an example of him becoming what he had previously abhored.
The book is well written on several levels. It vividly takes you into the peace corps, and through Africa. It also has a lot of subtly, as the character first repeats his own mistakes, and then repeats the mistakes he dislikes in others. The disappointment with his eventual success (be careful what you ask for as you might get it) on both the large and small levels are told with a straight face, adding to the believability of the character.
The book is 500 pages of a quick energizing read. Well worth the time invested.

Die Karl May Reiseerzählungen sind immer wieder gerne gelesen. Etwas Schöneres kann man über einen Schriftsteller nicht sagen. Auch wenn alles erfunden ist, was ja auf eine große, rege Fantasie schließen lässt.
Fazit:
Meine Kaufempfehlung, leider werden die Bücher immer teurer.

1929 Vtg The Fairy Caravan Beatrix Potter Illustrations First Edition 1st Print
A little too much of a slow ramble. Some of the illustrations are a little too busy. But I'm glad Beatrix Potter found a home for her more personal tales. This is more for an adult seeking a child like escape. And I like reading it for my own bedtime story. I can't finish it, even though it isn't terribly long. I reflect on a few pages, then sail off to sleep. I take comfort in owning this book more than I enjoy reading it.
Dakota Farm (The Dakota Series)
Dakota Farm (The Dakota Series)
I'm with the other reviewer, this sucked! big time. You purchase a book, you expect a BOOK. This was an excerpt, I've read previews that were 5x's longer than this. disappointed. It felt like the mock up to a story. Over the years I've purchased her books because they were good,not great,but good. You saw the name and thought "I'll get that one, because it will at least be good", Not trash or straight porn, but good. Honestly these seasoned authors get to a point, where they feel that their following, is so great, that they can just throw anything out there an we will buy it, and be satisfied.This book, was unadulterated arrogance. Well lesson learned! Won't be buying again.
There are so many good, new authors out there, who'll give you a WHOLE book for your money..story line, character development, romance a little drama and a ending!! an yes even for .99 cents.
Hornet's Nest (Andy Brazil Book 1)
Hornet's Nest (Andy Brazil Book 1)
Readers: read this book for itself. Fiction reading is supposed to be entertaining, and this book definitely does that! Now, more detail. I am an ardent Patricia Cornwell fan, full disclosure. I've read all the books in the Kay Scarpetta series, and loved them all. Cornwell's writing style in the Scarpetta series is one thing, and in the Andy Brazil series, another. Scarpetta: unique, first person, deeply character-driven, filled with scientific detail, psychological, punctuated with escalating tension until the ultimate, thriller crime-scene-as-it-happens climax that you feel like you can't possibly live through. And then, the epilogue. Whew. Andy Brazil: filled with whacky characters you cannot HELP but love, rollicking, rolling scenes that made me laugh out loud, crime fighters galore and bad guys who - I love this - take a whooping, with all the white hats on top at the end. I guffawed so many times I lost count. The humor in this first Andy Brazil book is priceless! I think the book is wonderfully written and terrifically entertaining. It is NOT like Scarpetta, and shame on the editorial reviewers who made that comparison. I think it's genius when an author can create an entirely new voice for a new series.
JAN & JUL GRO-with-Me Adjustable Toddler Sun-Hat with UV Protection for Baby and Kids, Cotton
JAN & JUL GRO-with-Me Adjustable Toddler Sun-Hat with UV Protection for Baby and Kids, Cotton
Judging by the positive reviews for this product I must have received the wrong item. I ordered the woodland design which in the pictures shows colored silhouettes of forest animals like bears and deer and wolves. As you can see from the pictures I posted, that is not the design of the hat I received. I don’t even see that design of the hat I got among the options for the product. Plus it has some writing in bad English that says “Safart animats all good friends”. Also it does not have two toggle adjustments like the description but only one chin strap with Velcro that is not really adjustable.

This one is going back and I will try again, maybe I’ll receive what I actually ordered.

I reordered the item and actually received the right hat. It is just like the description and it has 2 toggle adjustments. I like that it also has a small buckle on the chin strap so if the kid starts pulling on the hat (like mine does) the strap will release without my toddler being able to strangle himself. Also the fabric is light and feels very comfortable.
Creative Economy Entrepreneurs: From Startup to Success: How Startups in the Creative Industries are Transforming the Global Economy
Creative Economy Entrepreneurs: From Startup to Success: How Startups in the Creative Industries are Transforming the Global Economy
Too many talk about the importance of creativity, few do it, and even fewer grow a creative ecosystem and economy. The authors and founders of Creative Startups are doers in the creative economy. Through Creative Startups, over 450 jobs have been created across five global sites and over 90 startups. Within their experiences so far, nearly $50 million in investment capital has been raised to support the creative startups.

More than being instigators of creative economies and ecosystems, they lead by example in what they created and by sharing their lessons and insights in their book, Creative Economy Entrepreneurs. This book delivers many examples of entrepreneurs who tapped into their creative spirit and then gathered a diverse team to make it a reality. While some investors stay away from creative entrepreneurs, others realize less risk resides in the creative economy. The authors, Loy and Aageson, share why interconnectedness is essential to supporting the entrepreneurs and innovation. When a cluster builds around similar creative initiatives, momentum gains, even in tough economic situations. Supporting innovative clusters is one motivator and powerful example of the creative economy.

Creative Economy Entrepreneurs is much more than a guide or blueprint for developing and supporting innovation in different communities. It also shows the power of collaboration, partnerships, clusters, diversity, and more. Cities, universities, and others community developers can learn a great deal from Loy and Aageson in what they have shared in their book and in the work they have done.
Dickies Women's Relaxed Fit Straight Leg Cargo Pant
Dickies Women's Relaxed Fit Straight Leg Cargo Pant
100% cotton as labeled. As you can see from the pictures I put them on as soon as I unboxed them - stickers, hilarious middle creases and all... (creases came out with a spritz of water and a tumble in the dryer.)

I frequently fluctuate from a 2 to a 6, so I got a size 4... it fits as expected. The inseam said it was 34 and mine is 32, so I knew they would run longer, but I'm only buying these for some heavy duty work, so rolling them is good enough for me (but Dickies brand is worth tailoring if need be in my opinion- they have always been exceptional quality.) They are comfortable, thick, and don't feel as if they will stretch in funky ways.

Fashion-wise... they look worse in the photos. They actually look fine in person. Also, I like the little detailing of the 1 belt loop being a strap and the little red threading detail on the right back pocket above the logo. They have cool red threading on the inside as well, not that that makes a difference. It's nice that the back pockets have snap closures too. - EDIT: side pockets have Velcro closures.) If I don't irreparably damage them while working, I would certainly wear them in public. (Looks like a good start to a Kim Possible halloween costume too. )

Soontrans Ergonomic Office Chair PC Gaming Chair Racing Chair for Gaming Computer Chair,E-Sports Chair with High-Back,Adjustable Headrest and Lumbar Support (Polar White)
If you thought buying a chair was an easy process...you were wrong. Lets start off by just clicking buy on Amazon. Okay. Nothing too bad yet. Fast forward to getting the chair. Okay its the wrong color. Maybe they can fix that easily. Well, another wrong color replacement a few days later and their support is no closer to solving the problem. Saying Amazon has to send any other replacement due to them not getting reimbursed for Amazon's mistake. Which to be fair, checks out at first and even second glance though I can't confirm Amazon is to blame for both mistakes. With that being said, the seller refused full refund after offering a 3rd chair. Because if you can't get it right the first two times, just try it again...right? Amazon forced a full refund on the seller and now I have 2 chairs and didn't pay for them. Which would be a good deal if the padding on the armrest didn't wear down after a couple weeks and if the screw on the right arm rest stayed screwed in. But one stripped screw and the strongest threadlocker on Amazon later. That problem is solved.

So where do I stand with this purchase? Well aside from quite literally the worse purchase experience in terms of getting what I paid for, and even support that shifted blame more than actually helped me get the chair I wanted. The chair works, and the quality is good enough as I think mine is more defective than the average with the armrest and stripped screw. But this leads back to the fact that I never should have gotten this specific chair ANYWAYS so this could all have been avoided. With that being said, if I had to challenge the seller into fixing this experience. It would be to send me a blue chair, like what I ordered and never got. Originally, the first two chairs in the wrong color and a full refund was fine. However, that was very much before the quality issues. That doesn't fix the fact my chair is technically defective and I wasted a lot of time on support emails or Amazon's call center. This is much more a review on the lack of accountability and overall terrible support than the product itself. But again, with that being said. If I were to get the correct chair to fix the quality issues, I would update this to reflect their efforts. But until then, this will remain the worse product experience I have ever received.

Alen BreatheSmart 45i Air Purifier for Large Rooms up to 800 Sqft, H13 True HEPA, Air Quality Auto Sensor, Removes Allergens while Eliminates Bacteria, Germs, Mold, Odors, in White
Habe das Gerät seit einem Tag im Betrieb und bin bisher begeistert. Der Alen BreatheSmart 45i macht einen sehr wertigen und robusten Eindruck, ähnlich wie ein Gerät aus der Medizintechnik. Der Luftdurchsatz durch den Filter ist bereits in der kleinsten Betriebsstufe, in der der Ventilator kaum zu hören ist, enorm hoch. Es ist ein sehr gut durchdachtes Gerät, die Inbetriebnahme und Bedienung sind einfach und intuitiv. Der Filter gab bei Inbetriebnahme keinen Geruch ab.

Mir wurde zunächst irrtümlicherweise ein Gerät ausgeliefert, das für den Markt im UK bestimmt war und daher nicht den passenden Netzstecker für deutsche Schuko-Dosen hatte. Das Problem wurde sehr professionell, schnell und umstandslos von Alen International zu meiner vollkommenen Zufriedenheit gelöst.

TWIZZLERS - Caramelo de regaliz, fresa, 7 onzas (paquete de 12)
The Twizzlers were hard to chew. Taste and feel like plastic. I took a chance at using a different vendor for these than I usually do and am disappointed. The Twizzlers themselves are advertised as being a low calorie snack, which it is not. Just 4 pieces gets you 100 calories and over 20 carbs. Bringing the entire package (2.5 servings) to about 250 calories and 56 carbs.

I had hoped for a refund because I just don't like the product. However, these for some reason are
non-returnable.

I purchased this kit solely for the PRIMING CLIP to use along with the bulk 600ml kit listed on Amazon as “Printer Ink by BCH - to Refill Inkjet Cartridges: Envy, PhotoSmart, OfficeJet - Create Laser-sharp Text and Vivid Color with High Yield Standard Bulk 600 ml.” Unfortunately, it was INCOMPATIBLE with the priming clip as the notches above the ink cartridge does not allow it to ‘pop’ in place so ink can be primed. Also, I would recommend using a kit that has SYRINGES for better control and so the amount of mL could actually been drawn properly to avoid overfilling ink.

The listing should say that it is INCOMPATIBLE for priming HP 62 cartridges.

BCH, if you’re reading this, please feel free to send me a replacement Primer Clip that I can actually use. Thank you.

Me llegó enseguida, al día siguiente de comprarlo.
