The bizarre truth to top-secret experiments in time travel and invisibility. In 1943, a U.S. Navy ship vanishes during a secret World War II experiment gone horrifically wrong. The ship vanished and traveled through time, setting off a number of events that continue today, spilling over into the Montauk Project, a continuation of the Philadelphia Experiment. Surviving researchers from the Philadelphia Experiment met in the early ´50s intent on continuing their work on manipulating the electromagnetic shielding used to make the USS Eldridge invisible to radar and to the naked eye. The intent was to use a magnetic field as a means of psychological warfare. Initial proposals were rebuffed by the U.S. Congress, fearing the dangers of the research. The experiment continued with support from the DOD and funding from a large cache of Nazi gold found in a train by U.S. soldiers in France near the Swiss border. The train was destroyed, and all the soldiers involved in the discovery were killed as part of a cover-up. With funding in place, work allegedly began at a decommissioned base in Montauk, New York, under the name of the ´´Phoenix Project´´. Discover the science behind experiments involving walk-in implantation, time travel, mind control, invisibility, mind machines used to develop and control paranormal powers, and much more. Hear a complete breakdown of the Philadelphia Experiment and the Montauk Project from those who were there to witness the events. This true, yet unbelievable, story is one they do NOT want you to know. You will be terrified, shocked, and amazed by experiments performed on human beings and the incredible history of the Philadelphia Experiment. Over five hours of the darkest black operations, government cover-ups, and conspiracies! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Al Bielek, Preston Nichols.

Rare und echte Audioaufnahmen aus den Archiven der Parapsychologie, von okkulten Phänomenen, Exorzismen, Seancen... The Anthology Spectra Ex Machina brings together rare documents pertaining to so-called occult phenomena, most of them taken from little-known archives. In the course of three volumes, this series traces an audio history of parapsychology through the exploration of spiritualism and haunted houses (vol. 1); musician mediums (vol. 2); experiences of extrasensory perceptions (clairvoyance, psychokinesis, etc.) and electronic voice phenomena (vol. 3). The documents gathered here are, by their extravagance and far-fetched aspects, more than the mere objects of belief one would be tempted to reduce them to. They are vestiges of aberrant phenomena, fossils of an unknown civilization buried in the depths of the unconscious that are revived, in a way, when we listen to them. They can be understood as ´´works,´´ in the full artistic sense of the word, and constitute a kind of ´´cabinet of sound curiosities´´ that is worthy of aesthetic interest. Sometimes imbued with a disconcerting dramatic intensity, these documents bear the features of an authentic time machine, placing the listener in the position of a witness of the time immersed in the dim darkness of the experimental hall. And it is at that precise moment that the aesthetic power of these archives takes precedence over their probative value. Their somewhat old-fashioned charm, maintained by the surface noise of magnetic tapes and old wax disks, gets stronger with each listen.
An enormous and completely fascinating collection of anti-sartorial photographs of street life by the Dutch conceptual artist/street photographer. From Amsterdam to New York and Paris to Shanghai, these photographs, taken over a period of more than twenty years, provide a cumulative portrait of the people of the twenty-first century. A magnetic panoply of images, this cult object has a place in the library of every photography book collector as well as anyone interested in contemporary culture. Democratic, apolitical and unique, the archive of thousands of images offers an engrossing and engaging cross-section of society.
The very word ´´digital´´ has acquired a status that far exceeds its humble dictionary definition. Even the prefix digital, when associ ated with familiar sectors such as radio, television, photography and telecommunications, has reinvented these industries, and provided a unique opportunity to refresh them with new start-up companies, equipment, personnel, training and working practices - all of which are vital to modern national and international economies. The last century was a period in which new media stimulated new job opportunities, and in many cases created totally new sectors: video competed with film, CDs transformed LPs, and computer graphics threatened traditional graphic design sectors. Today, even the need for a physical medium is in question. The virtual digital domain allows the capture, processing, transmission, storage, retrieval and display of text, images, audio and animation without familiar materials such as paper, celluloid, magnetic tape and plastic. But moving from these media to the digital domain intro duces all sorts of problems, such as the conversion of analog archives, multimedia databases, content-based retrieval and the design of new content that exploits the benefits offered by digital systems. It is this issue of digital content creation that we address in this book. Authors from around the world were invited to comment on different aspects of digital content creation, and their contributions form the 23 chapters of this volume.
Arthur Godfrey, The Romance of Helen Trent, Our Gal Sunday, The Goldbergs, President Roosevelt´s Address to Congress, Amos and Andy, Joe E. Brown, Major Bowes, Louis Prima, and more all in a row! This is a recording of a full broadcast day, remastered (from the National Archives transcript disks) by Joe Bevilacqua. On Thursday, September 21, 1939, radio station WJSV (CBS) in Washington, DC, recorded their entire broadcast day - from sign on to sign off. This was before the advent of magnetic recording tape, so transcription disks were used. The overall quality of these disk recordings is good to excellent except for a few spots of noticeable distortion and dropout. This collection is the complete broadcast day of the Columbia Broadcasting System´s radio station WJSV AM, Washington, DC, September, 21, 1939, recorded in part because of President Franklin D. Roosevelt´s address to Congress. This 25th special session speech covered FDR´s plans to change existing neutrality laws in light of the coming European war. You will hear everything as it was the day it was recorded - that includes the pops and crackles, the station breaks, and the technical difficulties, along with all the music, comedy, drama, soap operas, a quiz show, war news, baseball, and advertisements that were aired on September 21, 1939. Let this One Day in 1939 be your personal time machine as you travel back to those days when 15 cents would buy a hamburger, a six-pack of Coke cost a quarter, and the future was on display at the 1939 New York World´s Fair. More details: WJSV originally came on the air in 1926 as WTRC in Brooklyn, New York, then was moved to Arlington, Virginia, the following year and became WJSV in 1928. CBS bought the station from the previous owner in 1931 and officially moved the station to Washington, DC, although the transmitter site remained in Virginia. CBS made WJSV its affiliate in the nation´s capital. A 1. Language: English. Narrator: Arthur Godfrey, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Joe E. Brown, Major Bowes, Agnes Moorehead, Louis Prima.

Ted Hughes, poet laureate, was one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. He was one of Britain´s most important poets, his work infused with myth; a love of nature, conservation, and ecology; of fishing and beasts in brooding landscapes. With an equal gift for poetry and prose, and with a soul as capacious as any poet in history, he was also a prolific children´s writer and has been hailed as the greatest English letter writer since John Keats. His magnetic personality and insatiable appetite for friendship, love, and life also attracted more scandal than any poet since Lord Byron. His lifelong quest to come to terms with the suicide of his first wife, Sylvia Plath, is the saddest and most infamous moment in the public history of modern poetry. Hughes left behind a more complete archive of notes and journals than any other major poet, including thousands of pages of drafts, unpublished poems, and memorandum books that make up an almost complete record of Hughes´ inner life, which he preserved for posterity. Renowned scholar Jonathan Bate has spent five years in the Hughes archives, unearthing a wealth of new material. His book offers, for the first time, the full story of Hughes´ life as it was lived, remembered, and reshaped in his art. It is a book that honors, though not uncritically, Hughes´ poetry and the art of life writing, approached by his biographer with an honesty answerable to Hughes´ own. 1. Language: English.
