1 A Cynic's Guide to a Rich and Full Life

DiGiorgio, Mario Hardcover

Brand New 

Emerging, prize-winning comedian Mario DiGiorgio gives tongue-in-cheek advice on how to be more self-centered, cynical, and most importantly, hilariously inappropriate. Dance like nobody's watching. Then apologize to those who were. Tape record your mother's laughter. Play it at your father's funeral. Help a child plant a garden. They have no idea what pot looks like. Write down three things that were great about today. I know, neither can I. DiGiorgio's as dry as a martini at the Tanqueray distillery, as caustic as a Drano milkshake, as funny as a banana peel on the floor of the Republican convention. -The Austin Chronicle. For a comic who's still a baby in the business, Mario's got no hacky shit in his act. -Nick Dipaolo, comedian. With a degree in advertising, Mario DiGiorgio moved to Austin, Texas from New Jersey, and began writing comedy in between a dozen restaurant jobs. Eight months after his debut on stage, he won a contest as The Funniest Person in Austin; was a finalist at the HBO/Aspen Open Call for stand-up; and was a finalist in Comedy Central's Laugh Riots competition. Mario was also featured on Comedy Central's Premium Blend in 2006 and performed at the prestigious Just For Laughs festival in Montreal.

2 Absinthe & Flamethrowers: Projects and Ruminations on the Art of Living Dangerously

Gurstelle, William Paperback

Brand New 

Want to add more excitement to your life? This daring combination of science, history, and DIY projects will show you how. Written for smart risk takers, it explores why danger is good for you and details the art of living dangerously. Risk takers are more successful, more interesting individuals who lead more fulfilling lives. Unlike watching an action movie or playing a video game, real-life experience changes a person, and Gurstelle will help you discover the true thrill of making black powder along with dozens of other edgy activities. All of the projects—from throwing knives, drinking absinthe, and eating fugu to cracking a bull whip, learning bartitsu, and building a flamethrower—have short learning curves, are hands-on and affordable, and demonstrate true but reasonable risk. With a strong emphasis on safety, each potentially life-altering project includes step-by-step directions, photographs, and illustrations along with troubleshooting tips from experts in the field.

4 Pocket Guide to Mischief

King, Bart Trade Paperback

Brand New! 

The greatest leaders and geniuses in history were mischief makers. They were the brave women who looked at how unfair the world was and said, “I can do better than that.” They were the stalwart men who saw stupidity and asked, “Why do we have to do it that way?” And they were the delightful children who ganged up on the neighborhood bully and hit him with wet noodles until he said, “Uncle!” Yes, history's mischief makers had the courage to point out that things like slavery, global warming, and turtleneck sweaters are bad. And they also pulled off some of the greatest hoaxes and practical jokes of all time. Their achievements include the Boston Tea Party, the “War of the Worlds” radio broadcast of 1938, and the Cheese Whiz Disaster of 2008. In honor of them, we introduce The Pocket Guide to Mischief, the perfect addition to any prankster's collection, as well as a fun-filled how-to for the budding troublemaker in all of us. Author biography: Bart King, the perpetrator of The Pocket Guide to Mischief is also the author of the national bestseller, The Big Book of Boy Stuff. (It was Amazon’s bestselling children’s book for a whole day!) Bart subsequently co-authored The Big Book of Girl Stuff with his five sisters and 50 former students. This title won widespread acclaim; if you are skeptical (and you should be) please see its product page.
