A Hat a Kayak and Dreams of Dar: Terry Bell
DAS BESTE AUS DER E.O.F.T. 10/11! Jetzt auch auf Blu-ray! Auch wenn Ihr es nicht für möglich gehalten hättet: Man kann • eine Big Wall Free Solo klettern, • 300 Tage allein auf einer einsamen Insel verbringen, • einen 56 Meter hohen Wasserfall mit dem Kajak hinunterfahren. Wie das funktioniert, haben Euch Kajaker Tyler Bradt, Xavier „Robinson“ Rosset und Kletterstar Alex Honnold in der E.O.F.T. 10/11 gezeigt. Bei „Dream Result“, „300 Days“ und „Alone on the Wall“ ist die Gänsehaut jedenfalls schon vorprogrammiert. Weniger Nervenkitzel, aber mehr Kletterspaß gibt es in „A Bit of a Rough“, und bei „Follow Me“ wird es die Mountainbiker unter Euch nicht allzu lange vor dem Fernseher halten. Wir wünschen Euch viel Spaß mit den besten Filmen der E.O.F.T. 10/11 - und ganz besonders mit unserer E.O.F.T.-Retrospektive „The Spirit of Adventure“, die natürlich auch auf der Blu-ray zum zehnjährigen Tourjubiläum nicht fehlen darf.

I climbed into my orange plastic Kayak and zoomed off to the green shallows of Young Cove. Just what is it that makes paddling this waterway such pleasure? Sometimes I think it is the kayak music. That is the musical sound of the hull traveling through the water on a quiet day. It is constantly changing and it is always calming to me. As I come to the end of the cove I notice that there is no evidence of the shipwreck which had been rusting and disintegrating in the shallows for more than a decade. I don´t know who owned the boat, but it is like the couple thousand boats which are abandoned along the 2,000 miles of shoreline in Puget Sound. Somebody´s dream had died and the wreck became a persistent reminder of that failure. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joseph B. Campo.

A daring, firsthand, and utterly unscripted account of crisis in America, from Ferguson to Flint to Cliven Bundy´s ranch to Donald Trump´s unstoppable campaign for President - at every turn, Pulitzer-prize winner and best-selling author of Detroit: An American Autopsy Charlie LeDuff was there. In the fall of 2013, long before any sane person had seriously considered the possibility of a Trump presidency, Charlie LeDuff sat in the office of then-Fox News CEO Roger Ailes and made a simple but prophetic claim: The American people were at breaking point. The country was going broke and on high boil. No one in the bubbles of Washington, DC; New York; or Los Angeles was talking about it - least of all the media. LeDuff wanted to go to the heart of the country to report what was really going on. Ailes balked. Could the hard-living and straight-shooting LeDuff be controlled? But, then, perhaps on a whim, he agreed. And so LeDuff set out to record a TV series called The Americans, and, along the way, ended up bearing witness to the ever-quickening unraveling of The American Dream. For three years, LeDuff traveled the width and breadth of the country with his team of production irregulars, ending up on the Mexican border crossing the Rio Grande on a yellow rubber kayak alongside undocumented immigrants; in the middle of Ferguson as the city burned; and watching the children of Flint get sick from undrinkable water. Racial, political, social, and economic tensions were escalating by the day. The inexorable effects of technological change and globalization were being felt more and more acutely, at the same time as wages stagnated and the price of housing, education, and healthcare went through the roof. The American people felt defeated and abandoned by their politicians, and those politicians seemed incapable of rising to the occasion. The old way of life was slipping away, replaced only by social media, part-time work, and o 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charlie LeDuff.

What do a kayak, a wine barrel, and a tractor have in common? They´re all weapons in the hands of three determined women! When the FBI asks the Sleuth Sisters to attend a retreat for ´´Love-Able Ladies´´, Barb opts out, unwilling to spend a weekend celebrating the joys of being some man´s ´´little wife´´. Retta is eager to go since the venue is a swanky vineyard/inn on the Leelanau Peninsula, north of Traverse City, Michigan. Never a fan of large groups of strangers, Faye would rather stay home, but since Retta needs a ´´wing-woman´´, she doesn´t get a choice. Their assignment is to assess the possibility a retreat attendee might cooperate in an FBI investigation. Dina Engel is launching a line of high-fashion clothing, and the feds hope that means she´s separating herself from her drug king-pin father. The sisters will try to get to know Dina, hint the Bureau is interested in a meeting, and provide her with a safe way to contact them. Though the setting is lovely and the inn is all that Retta imagined, things quickly go bad. Murder, kidnapping, and a mysterious plot involving Dina´s fashion show plunge Faye and Retta into danger. The sisters are separated from each other and threatened with death if they don´t cooperate. Retta finds it hard being isolated and alone. Faye has to decide which people around her are enemies and which are innocent retreat attendees. Sensing trouble, Barb shows up, but she soon faces a choice between being shot and drowning in Grand Traverse Bay. It doesn´t seem possible that all three sisters can survive the dream-weekend-turned-nightmare. Still, this is the fifth Sleuth Sisters adventure, and listeners know these women don´t give up easily. Sit back, have a glass of wine, and learn a little more about sister power! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anne Jacques, Laura Bednarski, Judy Blue.
