Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) LP
Top-Produkt
26,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Named after Eurythmic’s best-known song, this sophomore, and multi award winning, album is so much more than one hit single, as Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox were perfecting their unique brand of electro-pop that defined the second great British invasion in the 1980s. Amazing to think that the budget for producing this masterpiece was only £4,800, borrowed from a bank manager to buy the recording equipment. Track Listing: Love Is a Stranger (2018 Remastered) I've Got an Angel (2018 Remastered) Wrap It Up (2018 Remastered) I Could Give You (A Mirror) [2018 Remastered] The Walk (2018 Remastered) Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) [2018 Remastered] Jennifer (2018 Remastered) This Is the House (2018 Remastered) Somebody Told Me (2018 Remastered) This City Never Sleeps (2018 Remastered)

Recaredo Cava Tribut Segona Plenitud 1996 Trocken
Highlight
299,00 € *
zzgl. 0,99 € Versand

Der einzigartige Jahrgangscava von 1996 wurde aus 80% Xarel.lo und 20% Chardonnay vinifiziert. Xarel.lo reifte über 10 Monate im Barrique. EIn Cava mit großer Komplexität und sehr breiter Aromapalette. Robert Parker's WineAdvocat lobt mit 97 Punkten: \"The 1996 Segona Plenitud · 20 Años De Crianzae is another unique and limited sparkling Cava from Recaredo. It's a blend of 80% Xarello and 20% Chardonnay that they produced for the change of the millennium and their 75th anniversary. The Xarello was aged in barrique for ten months, and the Chardonnay fermented and was kept in stainless steel. It has a very smoky nose, with plenty of yeasts, bread dough and toast, combining the notes from the barrel and the long aging in bottle in contact with the lees. It has lots of complexity of aromas and flavors, with a touch of mushroom that made me think of a Roquefort cheese. It's very tasty, different, with great complexity and youth. The bubbles are so integrated that they make it nicely textured. It's a white wine with just a spark. It's a game of acidity and bitterness, as they never play with sweetness, and it's what makes their Cavas unique. This is really complex and unique, even within their wines. The complexity and freshness make it really one of the best sparkling wines I have tasted from Spain. It was disgorged in February 2018, 240 months after it was put in bottle. They plan to release some 200 bottles as an oenothèque.\" (Luis Gutiérrez, April 2018)

Journey to 50: How to Live with Gratitude, Grac...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In a culture enamored with youth and beauty, the 50th birthday is often seen as a death sentence...in more ways than one. It's easy to see why. What used to be perky is now otherwise. What's trending now trumps wisdom. A once-healthy body now declares mutiny on any healthy choices. And, after years of putting others first, many find they are lonely, depressed, and lack meaningful work. On the eve of her 49th birthday, this generally hilarious and fun-loving author stood before a dark path, struggling to find purpose and joy. It was do or die, and it scared her. Early one morning (because she couldn't sleep...again), she asked God, "Why am I still here? What is it you want me to do?" "Focus on regaining your health - physically, relationally, emotionally and spiritually - and then write about it." So the journey began. In Russell's uniquely gut-busting style, Journey to 50 shares the real-life steps and tools Russell used to regain the joy in her life and to see age as a privilege. Her book covers: Overwhelming dread Open relationships (it's not what you think!) Optimal health Organic faith Outrageous fun Most of the greats in the Bible were given their "big adventure" in the second half of their lives. Why should it be any different for us? God doesn't want us to sit on the sideline any longer. (He knows how many hours we've put in watching little league!) It's time to reevaluate, to embrace the difference between giving up and letting go, and sit before God and plan out our next journey. Let the celebrating begin! 1. Language: English.

Terroir al Límit »Les Tosses« 2013 Rotwein Trocken
Bestseller
199,00 € *
zzgl. 0,99 € Versand

Terroir al Límit... Bei dem enthusiatischen Weinmacher Dominik Huber ist der Name Programm, denn hier wird die hohe Kunst des Terroir-Weins geradezu zelebriert. Alle Weine stammen von hochgelegenen Kleinst-Parzellen, während der gesamten Vegetationsphase greift man so wenig in den Weinberg ein, wie es nur irgend geht. Strikte Handlese in 10-Kilo-Boxen, manuelle Auslese der besten Trauben, Gravitationspresse, schonende Vinifizierung und Ausbau im Fass sind hier selbstverständlich. So entstehen einige der schönsten Priorats überhaupt , nur vergleichbar mit großen Burgundern und den Einzellagenweinen von Mas Martinet. Der Les Tosses stammt von alten Carineña-Reben aus einer 1,2 ha großen Südostlage mit rotem Schiefer 600m ü.d.M in Torroja del Priorat. Ein konzentrierter und kraftvoller Rotwein, aus der Cariñena-Traube von fast 100 Jahre alten Reben, der mit sehr viel Eleganz und Feinheit ausgestattet ist. Mineralische Anklänge von Graphit, betonen die Frische. Moschus, Gewürze, Lakritze und florale, sowie balsamische Noten geben einen ersten Eindruck von der Komplexität und Intensität des Weines. Am Gaumen kraftvoll, mit superfeinen Tanninen und sehr langem, aromatischem Finale. Luis Gutiérrez von Robert Parker's WineAdvocat vergibt stolze 96 Punkte für diesen Wein: \"The top Cariñena is the 2013 Les Tosses, which for Dominik Huber is the pure expression of graphite and cherries, from an ancient plot on black slate soils fermented with full clusters and a short maceration and matured in oak foudres for two years. There was a volatile whiff and that sensation of warm slate that really transported me to the character of the roads in Priorat. There's also something that made me think of iron and raw meat. It's all relative of course, because compared to most other Priorats, this would feel extremely elegant and floral. The palate has even more of that tactile sensation of the graphite, with abundant, albeit extremely fine tannins and showing great balance....

Laws of Form
24,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Laws of Form by G Spencer-Brown new English edition: At last this all-time classic has been reset, allowing more detailed explanations and fresh insight. There are seven appendices, doubling the size of the original book.This new edition of G Spencer-Browns all-time classic comes with previously unreleased work on prime numbers as well as on the four-colour theorem.Most exiting of all is the first ever proof of the famous Riemann hypothesis. To have, in print, under your hands and before your own eyes, what defied the best minds for a century and a half, is an experience not to be denied.Preface to the new English editionAs is now well known, Laws of Form took ten years from its inception to its publication, four years to write it and six years of political intrigue to get it published.Typically of all unheralded best sellers from relatively obscure authors, it was turned down by six publishers, including Mark Longman who published my earlier work on probability. Even Sir Stanley Unwin refused to publish it until his best author, Bertrand Russell, told him he must.This crucial recommendation was not achieved without intrigue, and required me (not unwillingly) to sleep with one of Russell’s granddaughters, who asked me in the morning, ‘What exactly do you want from Bertie?’‘To endorse what he said about the book when he first read it in typescript,’ I told her.‘He never will!’ she exclaimed. ‘You’ll have to twist his arm, you’ll have to blackmail him. How can I help?’The next few years were spent in vigorous arm-twisting and incessant blackmail from us both. One of her threats was to invite me to Plas Penrhyn as her guest while Bertie and Edith were away in London. This sent Bertie into a paroxysm of terror of what the neighbours might think. He also had an irrational fear of spoiling his reputation as a mathematician, which was not good anyway, by recommending a book that had not yet been tried by the critics. He seemed totally unaware that any book he recommended, however ridiculous, would have no effect whatever on this.When we finally got him cornered, in my next visit to Plas Penrhyn, he carefully avoided mentioning the subject during the whole of my stay, and I considered it too dangerous to mention it myself. The next morning I was due to depart while Bertie and Edith were still in bed, and I thought I had failed miserably. But no! I missed my train because they had not ordered me a taxi to the station, which was their way of telling me that my visit was to be prolonged by another day.The evening of this extra day came, and still nothing was mentioned. Ten o’ clock bedtime arrived, and I thought I had failed again, when Bertie suddenly said, ‘What exactly do you want of me?’‘To endorse what you said about the book three years ago,’ I told him.‘You must remind me what it was,’ he said.I produced a verbatim report of his remarks, neatly typed out, and thrust it in his face.‘Are you sure this is all you want?’ he said. ‘Don’t you want me to write a detailed introduction to the work, as I did for Wittgenstein?’I told him that that would be very nice, but that this was all I needed just now.He contemplated the page of typescript for a moment, and then a wicked gleam lit up his face, and he rubbed his hands.‘Supposing I don’t?’ he grinned.‘Then,’ I heard myself saying, ‘it might delay the publication for a year or so, but the book will still be published in the end, and you won’t be associated with it.’‘Oh,’ he said. ‘I never thought of that. How would you like me to sign it?’There is no stronger mathematical law than the law of complementarity. A thing is defined by its complement, i.e. by what it is not. And its complement is defined by its uncomplement, i.e. by the thing itself, but this time thought of differently, as having got outside of itself to view itself as an object, i.e. ‘objectively’, and then gone back into itself to see itself as the subject of its object, i.e. ‘subjectively’ again.Thus we are what we see, although what we see looks like (and is) what we are not.This incessant crossing of the thing boundary, to look at it from one side and then the other, is called scrutiny, which as a small child was I told is not polite, because by scrutinizing a person or thing we shall notice uncomplimentary (same sound, different word) qualities of the person or thing that it is rude to mention or think about.At the age of three I discovered that most people, from what they told me, could stop themselves from thinking these rude thoughts, which is I suspect why ordinary people do not usually do mathematics, where you have to repeatedly cross and recross the thing boundary. In fact Laws of Form is the book I wrote simply about doing just this and nothing else.When the book finally came out, in 1969 April 17, its effect was sensational. The Whole Earth Catalog ordered 500 copies, which was half the edition, and other big dealers followed suit. The first printing was sold out before it reached the shops, and the publisher had to order a hurried reprint to meet the demand.Nobody had seen anything like it. Here was an upstart author explaining the mysteries of mathematics that the so-called greats of the science in the last 8000 years (at least) had never noticed, and in language that a child of six could follow.Having achieved my life’s ambition of composing and publishing a nearly perfect work of literature by the age of 46, I was suddenly confronted by the problem of what to do with the rest of my life. I knew, and so did everybody else, that I could never top this achievement, so with what significant purpose could I carry on?One thing I could and did do was learn some mathematics. One of many reasons why the book is so famous is because I did not know any math, apart from school stuff, when I began to write it. I had to teach myself, and with me, my readers, as I went along. In ten years I had learned enough to become a full professor in the University of Maryland, although I still thought I knew very little. Math is almost impossible to master without personal tuition, and I was lucky to strike up friendships with D H Lehmer and J C P Miller, both, as it happened, experts on Riemann’s hypothesis, in which I had no interest whatever, nor in analytic number theory in general. It was only on being told by my former student James Flagg, who is the best-informed scholar of mathematics in the world, that I had in effect proved Riemann’s hypothesis in Appendix 7, and again in Appendix 8, that persuaded me to think I had better learn something about it.I am an intensely competitive person, which comes from being repeatedly told by my mother that I would never be any good. This forced me to spend my whole life attempting to prove her wrong. The tragedy of it is that however brilliantly I performed, it made no difference. Nothing I could do would change her mind. I beat her at chess when I was four, and all she did was refuse to play with me ever again, rather than admit that I was good.If you solve a famous unsolved problem by mistake it doesn’t count. You have to say ‘I am going to solve this problem,’ and then solve it. So I had to spend another ten years learning analytic number theory, which I hated, in order to secure and objectify what I had done, and make it presentable.The result is so fascinating that it made the effort seem almost worth while, and the problem was so difficult that solving it gave me nearly as much pleasure as writing Laws of Form. The world of analysis is completely different from anywhere I had explored, the science of continuous variation rather than discontinuous jumping. And since Riemann’s problem is solved by a marriage of the two, although the achievement of a solution cannot quite top what I did in Laws of Form, it runs it a close second, if not an equal first.

The Best of Richard Matheson The definitive collection of terrifying stories by “one of the greatest writers of the 20th century” (Ray Bradbury), edited by award-winning author Victor LaValle Among the greats of 20th-century horror and fantasy, few names stand above Richard Matheson. Though known by many for novels like I Am Legend and his sixteen Twilight Zone episodes, Matheson truly shines in his chilling, masterful short stories. Since his first story appeared in 1950, virtually every major writer of science fiction, horror, and fantasy has fallen under his influence, including Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Peter Straub, and Joe Hill, as well as filmmakers like Stephen Spielberg and J.J. Abrams. Matheson revolutionized horror by taking it out of Gothic castles and strange cosmos and setting it in the darkened streets and suburbs we recognize as our own. He infused tales of the fantastic and supernormal with dark explorations of human nature, delving deep into the universal dread of feeling alone and threatened in a dangerous world. The Best of Richard Matheson brings together his greatest hits as chosen by Victor LaValle, an expert on horror fiction and one of its brightest talents, marking the first major overview of Matheson’s legendary career. “[Matheson is] the author who influenced me most as a writer.” -Stephen King “Richard Matheson’s ironic and iconic imagination created seminal science-fiction stories . . . For me, he is in the same category as Bradbury and Asimov.” -Steven Spielberg “He was a giant, and YOU KNOW HIS STORIES, even if you think you don’t.” -Neil Gaiman For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators. About author(s) Richard Matheson (1926-2013) is the New York Times bestselling author of I Am Legend, Hell House, Somewhere in Time, The Incredible Shrinking Man, A Stir of Echoes, and What Dreams May Come, among others. He was named a Grand Master of Horror by the World Horror Convention, and received the Bram Stoker Award for Lifetime Achievement. He has also won the Edgar, the Spur, and the Writer’s Guild awards. In 2010, he was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame. In addition to his novels, Matheson wrote screenplays, and he wrote for several Twilight Zone episodes, including “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,” based on his short story.
