Book Rec from Earl

Posted on in Book, OverDrive/Libby.

Black Gun, Silver Star by Art T. Burton

The Life and Legend of Frontier Marshal Bass Reeves

Earl says: “If you’re looking for a real Old West hero look no farther than Bass Reeves. Everyone has heard of Wyatt Earp, Bill Hickok, and Bat Masterson. Bass Reeves was a United States Marshall for over thirty years. Listen to this audiobook and learn about why many who study the Old West consider Reeves to be one of the best lawmen of his time.”

Dark Comedy Films or What the Heck Did I Just Watch? from Eric

Posted on in Hoopla, Kanopy, Movie.

All of these titles and more are available through Hoopla

Housebound: A young woman is placed under house arrest in her childhood home. A series of uncanny experiences lead her to believe the house is haunted by a great evil. The truth is perhaps more disturbing.

John Dies at the End: After experimenting with a strange new drug known as Soy Sauce, college drop-outs Dave and John find themselves in the unlikely roles of heroes trying to save the world from an otherworldly invasion. This film is filled with bewildering twists and distressing developments right up until the end.

What We Do in the Shadows: Mockumentary style tale about a group of vampires who have lived together for hundreds of years trying to fit into the modern world. Daylight and crucifixes are one thing, but rent and the chore wheel might be as bad. Or worse. (Also available on Kanopy)

Brazil: If you love the antics and offbeat humor of Monty Python but wish there was more dystopian tragi-comedy, appalling characters, and unsettling visuals then you will appreciate this 1985 film from Python alum Terry Gilliam. Terrorism, a bureaucratic police state, mistaken identity, and a love story of sorts will keep you guessing and unnerved throughout.
