Dahmer vs. Gacy (directed by Ford Austin) suggests the premise that DNA from serial killers could help the military develop an advantage in warfare: a cold, killing, human machine composed of evil DNA. This ´´Franken-warrior´´ would make modern warfare much more manageable. The problem is that live clones or ´´reproductions´´ of the original serial killers have to be kept in prison on the military facility while their DNA is being harnessed for this ´´higher purpose´´! All havoc is wrought when an accidental laboratory fire allows two of those remorseless killers to escape on a killing spree. You know who those killers are! 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. M.

As many know, Game of Thrones takes its story from many influences: the War of the Roses, Catherine de Medici, Norse and Celtic myth as well as medieval ballads. Modern readers find parallels with politics, the corporate world, and conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan. Will the story end like Lord of the Rings or completely invert it? How about King Arthur? Pop culture and parody author Valerie Estelle Frankel examines the sources and predicts a Game of Thrones ending for each one. What will the Ragnarok ending look like? Or the Narnia ending? Who will live, who will die, and how goofy can the war of ice and fire possibly get? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tamara Marston.

´´Imagination is the highest kite that can fly.´´ - Lauren Bacall A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history´s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors´ American Legends series, listeners can get caught up to speed on the lives of America´s most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, learning interesting facts long forgotten or unknown. It´s exceedingly difficult to think about Lauren Bacall without also thinking of her famous husband, Humphrey Bogart. After all, it is no accident that Bacall was entirely unknown before starring at just 20 years old with her future husband in Howard Hawks´ famous film To Have and Have Not in 1944. And of course, Bogart´s infatuation with the young actress helped ensure she would continue to be cast in movies with him moving forward. ´´Bogie and Bacall´´ are just one of a number of legendary romantic screen duos in film history, and there have been other famous screen couples who made headlines off the set as well, but few compare in terms of success. In the wake of their first film together, Bacall and Bogart captivated audiences in other films during the decade, including The Big Sleep (1946), Dark Victory (1947), and Key Largo (1948). Even though they didn´t appear in a large number of films together, the popularity and cultural significance of these films solidified the status of ´´Bogie and Bacall´´ as one of the premier romantic couples in film history. When Bogart died in 1957, Bacall was still in her 30s, yet from 1957 onward her name scarcely surfaces in popular culture, as though Bacall was simply wiped away with her late husband. 1.
