Swing Kids is the story of a group of teenagers coming of age in in Hamburg, Germany, in the 1930s, as the Nazis exert more and more control over German society.
The Swing Kids are the counter culture that find common identity in listening to the banned American Swing music.
One of the greatest jazz albums of all time.
Sometimes Mingus is a bit too avant garde for my taste, but this album is tightly focused.
I took it out of the library by random when I was 15, and I still love it 40 years later.
Includes, "Good Bye Pork Pie Hat", Mingus's haunting tribute to great tenor, Lester Young.
There aren't many albums like this. It defined modal jazz.
Perfect balance between the musicians.
Still remember when I bought it on vinyl, back in college.
I'm still listening to it 40 years later.
The liner notes said that Duane and Greg Allman studied this album during their formative years.
Clamptite is a tool that lets you make strong clamps using only wire.
It fits my minimalist philosophy.
I love being able to use a common material like wire in so many situations.
Just yesterday, I used it to make a neat clamp in the handle of my son's amplifier.
I like what I've seen from this company.
Looking forward to getting one of the S1s for our next camping trip.
Charge during the day, use during the night.
Can also charge with cell phone charger if the sun isn't cooperating.
d.light also contributes solar lighting to the 3rd world. Could be a real life changer to someone without electricity
This knife is always in my pocket.
I use it a dozen times a day.
Mostly to cut tape, open packages.
The scissors are surprisingly handy. Tweezers too.
I used to think the tiny blade was useless, but the fact is, I always have it in my pocket, so I always have it available to use.
