In 1986, twenty-year-old Christopher Knight left his home in Massachusetts, drove to Maine, and disappeared into the woods. A remarkable tale of survival and solitude--the true story of a man who lived alone in a tent in the Maine woods, never talking to another person and surviving by stealing supplies from nearby cabins for twenty-seven years. Many people dream of escaping modern life, but most will never act on it. This is the remarkable true story of a man who lived alone in the woods of Maine for 27 years, making this dream a reality-not out of anger at the world, but simply because he preferred to live on his own. A New York Times bestseller In 1986, a shy and intelligent twenty-year-old named Christopher Knight left his home in Massachusetts, drove to Maine, and disappeared into the forest. He would not have a conversation with another human being until nearly three decades later, when he was arrested for stealing food. Living in a tent even through brutal winters, he had survived by his wits and courage, developing ingenious ways to store edibles and water, and to avoid freezing to death. He broke into nearby cottages for food, clothing, reading material, and other provisions, taking only what he needed but terrifying a community never able to solve the mysterious burglaries. Based on extensive interviews with Knight himself, this is a vividly detailed account of his secluded life-why did he leave? what did he learn?-as well as the challenges he has faced since returning to the world. It is a gripping story of survival that asks fundamental questions about solitude, community, and what makes a good life, and a deeply moving portrait of a man who was determined to live his own way, and succeeded.
Erscheint im Digipak. Gitarren Ikone Zakk Wylde veröffentlicht das kommende, lang erwartete Album Book Of Shadows II". Die furchtlose intropektive Melancholie und Melodie vom Vorgänger "Book Of Shadows" halfen dieses Album zu einem von "Rolling Stone's Most Anticipated Albums of 2016" zu machen. So leidenschaftlich und wild seine Arbeit mit Black Label Society oder so groß seine Erfolge als ehemaliger Lead Gitarrist von Ozzy Osbourne auch sein mögen bietet "Book Of Shadows II" doch einen tiefern Einblick in die Seele eines der allerliebsten Vertreter der Hard Rock Community. Wylde hat fieberhaft an neuem Material gearbeitet seit er mit Black Label Society die "Unblackened" Herbst Tour hinter sich gebracht hat. Alle Songs von Book Of Shadows II wurden schon wie seine letzten Veröffentlichungen in Wylde's legendären Home Studio, dem Black Vatican, aufgenommen und produziert."
Favela Rising is an explosive and inspirational documentary about Rio de Janeiro's most violent favela (shantytown) and the revolutionary vision of a man who against all odds rises to enhance his community. Haunted by the murders of his family and friends, Anderson Sa is a former drug-trafficker who turns revolutionary in Rio de Janeiro's most feared slum. Through hip-hop music, the rhythms of the street, and Afro-Brazilian dance he rallies his community to war against the violent oppression enforced by teenage drug armies and sustained by corrupt police. At the dawn of liberation, just as collective mobility is overcoming all odds and Anderson's grassroots AfroReggae movement is at the height of its success, a tragic accident threatens to silence the movement forever.Shot over a two-year period, Matt Mochary and Jeff Zimbalist's extraordinarily powerful and life affirming film celebrates the strength of the human spirit in the face of human-rights violations, social injustice, and unexpected adversity.

Heading into its fifth season, Community is a smart, exuberant comedy that is consistently ranked as one of the most inventive and original half-hours on television. This ensemble comedy centres on a tight-knit group of friends who all met at what is possibly the world's worst educational institution - Greendale Community College. At the centre of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, The Soup ), a fast-talking lawyer who was caught with a phony college degree. Disbarred until he could earn a legitimate degree, Winger chose Greendale, thinking he could breeze through the mediocre school without a hitch. However, he soon found himself the reluctant leader of a disparate group of misfits, all stuck at Greendale for different reasons.
