The legendary Bernard Manning comperes while fellow stand-up veteran Colin Crompton is ‘Mr Chairman’ at the Wheeltappers and Shunters Social Club – the friendliest working men’s club in the North. Amid the boozing, bingo and committee announcements, the show features rising stars and evergreen entertainers, contemporary acts and international stars – and the occasional musical oddity. For the first time on home-video format, this release presents the complete second series, in which Roy Orbison, P.J. Proby, Marty Wilde, Russ Conway, Matt Monro, and dancer, choreographer and UFO star Peter Gordeno can be found rubbing shoulders with the Amazing Bavarian Stompers and some 'exotic' dancers! Although the ‘club’ was a humorously authentic studio mock-up, this forgotten treasure of 1970s light entertainment programming – building upon the highly successful live-audience format of The Comedians – brought the quickfire comedy, musical variety and convivial atmosphere of a typical Clubland concert night to a national audience. Providing a showcase for several future household names, Wheeltappers and Shunters Social Club proved a ratings winner between 1974 and 1977; this second series was first screened in 1974 and the set also includes that year’s New Year’s Special.

Fyodor Dostoevsky, the author of Crime and Punishment, once said, “We all come out from Gogol's 'The Overcoat.'" The story centers on an impoverished clerk who is dedicated to his job as a routine copyist but not recognized for his hard work. Younger clerks mock him for his dedication. His threadbare overcoat is mocked as well. He saves up to buy a new one and wears it for one glorious evening, only to have it stolen that night. He dies soon after from his great loss. Thereafter, his ghost is reported to haunt that part of St. Petersburg where the coat was stolen. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Deaver Brown.

Don't mock Constantine's dog. Princess might weigh only six and a half pounds, but she's tough - so watch your ankles. Be warned: If she doesn't like you, then neither will Constantine. Except he kind of likes Aria, even though Princess would prefer to bury her in a hole. Could it be because Aria has secrets? Lots of them, and they all have to do with the danger stalking Bitten Point. People are missing, and some have turned up dead. Monsters are roaming, and not just the swamp at night but the streets, too. At the heart of the mystery is a bite-sized woman, a woman Constantine wants to hug tightly in his coils and keep forever. A cold-blooded snake, Constantine can't help but crave the warmth that is Aria, but can he keep her out of mortal danger long enough to make her his mate? Contains mature themes. 1.

Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F--k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland. California Book Award-winning author Adam Mansbach’s profane, affectionate, and radically honest verses perfectly capture the familiar - and unspoken - tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. In the process, he opens up a conversation about parenting, granting us permission to admit our frustrations and laugh at their absurdity. Beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny, Go the F**k to Sleep is a book for parents new, old, and expectant. Due to its explicit language, you probably should not play it for your children. Feel free to share the link to this page with tired parents and other people who could use a good swear and a laugh. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Samuel L. Jackson.

Recommended by the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Entertainment Weekly, Bustle, Book Riot, BuzzFeed, Bust, LitHub, The Millions, HelloGiggles, and UrbanDaddy “The author you need to read now.” (Chicago Tribune) “To say this collection is transgressive, provocative, and brilliant is simply to tell you the truth.” (Roxane Gay, author of Hunger and Bad Feminist) Smart, humorous, and strikingly original essays by one of “America’s most bracing thinkers on race, gender, and capitalism of our time.” (Rebecca Traister) In these eight piercing explorations on beauty, media, money, and more, Tressie McMillan Cottom - award-winning professor and acclaimed author of Lower Ed - embraces her venerated role as a purveyor of wit, wisdom, and Black Twitter snark about all that is right and much that is wrong with this thing we call society. Ideas and identity fuse effortlessly in this vibrant collection that on bookshelves is just as at home alongside Rebecca Solnit and bell hooks as it is beside Jeff Chang and Janet Mock. It also fills an important void on those very shelves: a modern Black American feminist voice waxing poetic on self and society, serving up a healthy portion of clever prose and southern aphorisms as she covers everything from Saturday Night Live, LinkedIn, and BBQ Becky to sexual violence, infant mortality, and Trump rallies. Thick speaks fearlessly to a range of topics and is far more genre-bending than a typical compendium of personal essays. An intrepid intellectual force hailed by the likes of Trevor Noah, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Oprah, Tressie McMillan Cottom is “among America’s most bracing thinkers on race, gender, and capitalism of our time” (Rebecca Traister). This stunning debut collection - in all its intersectional glory - mines for meaning in places many of us miss, and reveals precisel 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tressie McMillan Cottom.

Best-selling author Suzanne Brockmann blends high adventure, harrowing drama, and heart-racing passion into thrilling novels of suspense. Whether tackling danger or wrestling with desire, her elite heroes and heroines never fail to give their all in stories that soar above and beyond expectations. Now, in her electrifying 10th Troubleshooters novel, Brockmann takes us into the storm. In a remote, frozen corner of New Hampshire, a Navy SEAL team and the elite security experts of Troubleshooters Incorporated are going head-to-head as fierce but friendly rivals in a raid-and-rescue training exercise. Despite the frigid winter temperatures, tension smolders between veteran SEAL Petty Officer Mark "Jenk" Jenkins and former cop turned troubleshooter Lindsey Fontaine after an impulsive night goes awry. And then suddenly Tracy Shapiro, the Troubleshooters' new receptionist, vanishes while playing the role of hostage during a mock rescue operation. Teaming up with the FBI to launch a manhunt in the treacherous wilderness, Jenk and Lindsey must put aside their feelings as a record snowstorm approaches, dramatically reducing any hope of finding Tracy alive. The trail is colder than the biting New England climate until a lucky break leads to a horrifying discovery - a brutally murdered young woman wearing the jacket Tracy wore when she disappeared. Suddenly there is a chilling certainty that Tracy has fallen prey to a serial killer - one who knows the backwoods terrain and who doesn't play by the rules of engagement. In a race against time, a raging blizzard, and a cunning opponent, Jenk and Lindsey are put to the ultimate test. Risking everything, they must finally come together in a desperate attempt to save Tracy - and each other. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Patrick Lawlor, Melanie Ewbank.

When her husband left her, she didn't feel sexy anymore, so on a whim she decided to go to amateur night at a strip club. For an amateur, she sure takes it like a pro! She gets five guys off, and she has her first anal sex and her first double penetration in an all-out gangbang sex extravaganza! Warning: This audiobook contains very explicit descriptions of sexual activity during a gangbang sex encounter. It includes oral sex, deep throat, first anal sex, double penetration, cum shot facial, ass to mouth, and gangbang sex. It is intended for mature readers who will not be offended by graphic depictions of sex acts between consenting adults. Here is a preview: The announcer said “Now, let’s give a warm welcome to our next contestant Mary Jane.” It wasn’t like I was going to use my real name. I climbed slowly on stage and the music I picked out began to play. I was shell shocked and looking out at a sea of faces. I began to move to the music slowly, and started to run my hands over my body suggestively. I heard someone say, “Take it off” and out of the blue I reached over to the table a grabbed his glass of beer. He looked on and they all watched me drink a little from the glass, and then I poured the rest over the t-shirt making it literally see through. You could now see my bra and I began to get catcalls and whistles. I pulled the t-shirt up and revealed my well-toned abs to their lustful faces. I worked it up and over my bra and then tossed it to the side. People started to cheer and it only made me do even more. I reached for my bra and pulled it off exposing my firm 36 B’s and hard nipples to the crowd. I knew by then that all my inhibitions were melting away and I reached for the zipper of my jeans and shimmied out of them, like a snake shedding its skin. I looked down and saw that my panties were soaked and looked up at the crowd and put my hand to my mouth in mock surprise. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jennifer Saucedo.
