Baltimore Banners defenseman Randy Michaels has a reputation for hard-hitting, on and off the ice. But he’s getting older, and his agent has warned that there are younger, less-expensive players who are eager to take his place on the team. Can his hare-brained idea of becoming a “respectable businessman” turn his reputation around, or has Randy’s reputation really cost him the chance of having his contract renewed? Alyssa Harris has one goal in mind: make the restaurant she’s opened with her three friends a success. It’s not going to be easy, not when the restaurant is a themed sports bar geared towards women. It’s going to be even more difficult because their sole investor is Randy Michaels, her friend’s drool-worthy brother who has his own ideas about what makes an interesting menu. Will the mismatched pair be able to find a compromise as things heat up, both on and off the ice? Or will their differences result in a penalty that cost both of them the game?

?Paul-Gustave van Hecke (1887-1967) is een van de spraakmakendste culturele figuren die België ooit gekend heeft. De eigenzinnige Van Hecke – Pégé, Gust of Tatave voor de vrienden – was een duiveldoet-al die zich met wisselend succes roerde in de politiek en met zijn scherpe pen heel wat theaterstukken en films maakte of kraakte. Hij mag gerust ook de eerste Belgische modeontwerper genoemd worden.Maar bovenal was hij een echte kunstpaus. Hij promootte onder meer het werk van de expressionisten Constant Permeke, Frits van den Berghe en Gust de Smet, en de surrealisten René Magritte en Paul Delvaux.Vijftig jaar na zijn overlijden brengt Manu van der Aa Tatave en een halve eeuw Belgische kunstgeschiedenis opnieuw tot leven.

This indispensable volume collects, updates, and expands the best entries from his popular blog and features his inimitable take on everything from effective e-mailing to sucking up to preventing "bozo explosions."

Shhh...in the newest hardcover in the national bestselling Dead-End Job Mystery series, Helen Hawthorne quietly goes undercover at a local library to search for a missing masterpiece. Wealthy socialite Elizabeth Cateman Kingsley has hired Helen to find a missing John Singer Sargent painting, owned by her late father. After his death, many of Davis Cateman’s books were donated to the Flora Park library, and his daughter suspects the small watercolor—worth millions—was tucked away inside one of those dusty tomes. To search the stacks, Helen applies for a position as a library volunteer and discovers the library director has a catalog of complaints—from a mischievous calico cat named Paris to the mysterious disappearance of various items that some of the more imaginative staff are attributing to a ghost haunting the building. While her husband Phil sticks his neck out to find a missing necklace, Helen is on her own with no one to lend her a hand. When a dead body turns up in a parking lot, it appears someone is willing to go to any lengths to keep the treasure in the library quiet. Now Helen is bound and determined to find the killer as well as the painting—before she’s taken out of circulation herself.

A Tribe Called Quest • Beastie Boys • De La Soul • Eric B. & Rakim • The Fugees • KRS-One • Pete Rock & CL Smooth • Public Enemy • The Roots • Run-DMC • Wu-Tang Clan • and twenty-five more hip-hop immortals It’s a sad fact: hip-hop album liners have always been reduced to a list of producer and sample credits, a publicity photo or two, and some hastily composed shout-outs. That’s a damn shame, because few outside the game know about the true creative forces behind influential masterpieces like PE’s It Takes a Nation of Millions. . ., De La’s 3 Feet High and Rising, and Wu-Tang’s Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). A longtime scribe for the hip-hop nation, Brian Coleman fills this void, and delivers a thrilling, knockout oral history of the albums that define this dynamic and iconoclastic art form. The format: One chapter, one artist, one album, blow-by-blow and track-by-track, delivered straight from the original sources. Performers, producers, DJs, and b-boys–including Big Daddy Kane, Muggs and B-Real, Biz Markie, RZA, Ice-T, and Wyclef–step to the mic to talk about the influences, environment, equipment, samples, beats, beefs, and surprises that went into making each classic record. Studio craft and street smarts, sonic inspiration and skate ramps, triumph, tragedy, and take-out food–all played their part in creating these essential albums of the hip-hop canon. Insightful, raucous, and addictive, Check the Technique transports you back to hip-hop’s golden age with the greatest artists of the ’80s and ’90s. This is the book that belongs on the stacks next to your wax. “Brian Coleman’s writing is a lot like the albums he covers: direct, uproarious, and more than six-fifths genius.” –Jeff Chang, author of Can’t Stop Won’t Stop “All producers and hip-hop fans must read this book. It really shows how these albums were made and touches the music fiend in everyone.” –DJ Evil Dee of Black Moon and Da Beatminerz “A rarity in mainstream publishing: a truly essential rap history.” –Ronin Ro, author of Have Gun Will Travel From the Trade Paperback edition.
