We've been told we don't embarrass easily, especially when it comes to cycling-related habits. We shave our legs religiously, wear more spandex than a gymnast, and don't usually think twice about a quick nature break alongside a busy road. However, we've heard stories of friends who were too embarrassed to walk into their local bike shop and buy a tub of chamois creme, comparing it to buying a dirty magazine from their local convenience store. It's really too bad, because Paceline's Chamois Butt'r Creme worth whatever perceived embarrassment it may cause.Chamois Butt'r is made from all natural ingredients with no perfumes or dyes. Its creamy texture reduces friction and fights bacteria that can lead to saddle sores. Chamois Butt'r also provides a cooling sensation, but unlike the Eurostyle Chamois Butt'r, it won't give you the distinctive tingling sensation. If basic, no-nonsense chamois creme is your preference, then Chamois Butt'r fits the bill nicely.Paceline Products Chamois Butt'r Creme comes in 4 ounce tubes or an 8 ounce jar. Product Features Volume: 8 ozSpray-On: noWaterproof: noSPF: Ingredients: Water, Mineral Oil, Ethylene Glycol Monostearate, Stearic Acid, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol, Sorbitol, Vitamin E, Vitamins A and D, Propylparaben, Methylparaben, Sodium Hydroxide, Aloe, LanolinRecommended Use: cyclingManufacturer Warranty:

$17.23 USD
Fifteen

Fifteen is the first new recording in six years from contemporary folk's most popular group, The Wailin' Jennys. An entrancing collection of cover songs, it includes tunes by Tom Petty, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton, and is their first new music since 2011's acclaimed album, Bright Morning Stars. For founding members Nicky Mehta and Ruth Moody, along with longtime member Heather Masse, Fifteen celebrates a 15-year musical partnership that has resulted in four award-winning studio albums and one live recording on Red House Records, three of which landed the trio on the Billboard charts, while garnering the band a worldwide fanbase. "They are all songs that are close to our heart for one reason or another or that feel appropriate for the times," says Moody. "Some are songs we've had arranged for a while but haven't had the chance to record. The others were brought to the mix for this record." Featuring their often-imitated but never surpassed vocals, The Wailin' Jennys cover nine of their favorite songs, opening with their starkly beautiful rendering of "The Old Churchyard," a triumph over death where the "clay will rise up," sung a cappella over a single droning organ tone, followed by their gorgeous full-band acoustic version of Tom Petty's "Wildflowers." Other highlights include their version of Emmylou Harris's "Boulder to Birmingham," their update of Paul Simon's "Loves Me Like a Rock" (from a women's point of view), songs by Jane Siberry, Warren Zevon, Patty Griffin and others. There's also an achingly beautiful, a cappella version of Dolly Parton's "Light of a Clear Blue Morning" that resonates as a call to hope in these troubled political times. All three band members sing and play a variety of instruments (acoustic guitar, accordion, banjo, ukulele) to create a shimmering tapestry of rich vocals and instrumentals. Additional musicians include Richard Moody (Ruth's brother), Sam Howard, Adrian Dolan and Adam Dobres. Produced by The Wailin' Jennys, Fifteen is a gorgeous feather in the cap of the band that has thrilled millions of listeners to A Prairie Home Companion radio.

$15.71 USD

This new CD from Dion features the highly requested radio hit "Shu Bop." "Shu Bop" sound like a "lost" recording that could have easily been slotted between "The Wanderer" and "A Teenager In Love." Dion also honors his Doo Wop roots with "In New York City." In addition to nine original compositions by Dion, two Bruce Springsteen songs, "Book Of Dreams" and "If I Should Fall Behind" (available only on this CD) showcase Dion in a more contemporary light. Review "...the best record he's made in years and one of the best records anyone has made this year." -- David Hinckley, New York Daily News, July 21, 2000 See all Editorial Reviews

"Bracing, head-clearing and ultimately inspiring. With rigor and wit [this] book show how millions of successful, hard-working Americans, often with the best of intentions, have helped build a society where birth matters more than brilliance. Impassioned, data-driven and focused on practical solutions, "Dream Hoarders" is a fine cure for an age of stale, cynical politics." - David Rennie, US Bureau Chief, The Economist "An important new perspective on equality and mobility from one of America's best-informed and most articulate commentators on that topic....Certain to enliven dinner party conversations among America's upper-middle class elite, so if you are in that group, this book is a must read."- Robert D. Putnam author Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis "Recently, scholars and social activists have set off alarm bells about the rising concentration of income among the top one percent.

Here he tackles one of the most urgent - inequality and how to solve it - and comes up with serious answers." - Jonathan Freedland, The Guardian "We have met the enemy, and he is us: we who were smart enough to pick the right parents and now occupy the high ground in post-industrial America. Richard Reeves makes his case brilliantly and--a tough act to pull off--engagingly." - Charles Murray, AEI, author of Coming Apart"Warning: Reeves' book will challenge some of your assumptions, no matter what your views are...Dream Hoarders will shake you up, teach you a lot and make you think much harder."  - E.J. Dionne Jr., Author of Why the Right Went Wrong Reading Richard Reeves on social mobility is like going for a good walk: he is bracing, head clearing, and ultimately inspiring. With rigor and wit, his new book shows how millions of successful, hardworking Americans, often with the best of intentions, have helped build a society where birth matters more than brilliance. Impassioned, data-driven, and focused on practical solutions, Dream Hoarders is a fine cure for an age of stale, cynical politics.―David Rennie, The Economist Richard Reeves has long been one of the most authoritative, insightful, and sage voices on the big questions gripping modern societies. Here he tackles one of the most urgent―inequality and how to solve it―and comes up with serious answers. ―Jonathan Freedland, The Guardian Recently, scholars and social activists have set off alarm bells about the rising concentration of income among the top 1 percent. Richard Reeves urges us to turn our attention to a wider slice of affluent Americans―the top fifth―and the result is a devastating empirical portrait of damage done to “the bottom eighty.” This captivating and stirring book is likely to make many of its readers uncomfortable.―Janet C. Gornick, Professor of Political Science and Sociology, Graduate Center, City University of New York, and Director, Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality Warning: Reeves’s book will challenge some of your assumptions, no matter what your views are. And he shows how innocent or even admirable actions in particular spheres can reinforce existing hierarchies. Dream Hoarders will shake you up, teach you a lot, and make you think much harder.―E.J. Dionne Jr., Author of Why the Right Went Wrong and Our Divided Political Heart An important new perspective on equality and mobility from one of America’s best-informed and most articulate commentators on that topic. Reeves provocatively turns the current policy debate upside down―not “how do we increase upward mobility?” but “how do we increase downward mobility?” Certain to enliven dinner party conversations among America’s upper-middle class elite―so if you are in that group, this book is a must-read.―Robert D. Putnam, Harvard University, author of Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis We have met the enemy, and he is us: we who were smart enough to pick the right parents and now occupy the high ground in post-industrial America. Richard Reeves and I differ on specifics, but Dream Hoarders rightly gets to the heart of things: if we treasure America’s traditional civic culture and want to see it preserved for future generations, the upper middle class has to recognize how much responsibility it bears for the culture’s plight and act accordingly. He makes that case brilliantly.―Charles Murray, American Enterprise Institute From the Inside Flap America is becoming a class-based society America prides itself on being a classless society, where hard work and talent get you ahead. A place where status is earned, not inherited. At least, that’s the idea. In fact, the United States is marked by a deepening class divide. Debates about inequality focus on the wealth of “super-rich,” or the top 1 percent. But as Richard Reeves shows, the most important and consequential gap in American society is the one between the upper middle class―broadly, the top fifth―and everyone else. The separation of the upper middle class can be seen in the income distribution, but also in family structure, neighborhoods, attitudes, and lifestyle. This is not just an economic divide but a fracturing of American society along class lines. Reeves shows how high-income parents are now passing on their class status to their children, threatening American ideals of equal opportunity and social mobility. Upper-middle-class children become upper-middle-class adults; class separation becomes class perpetuation. “For Americans,” Reeves writes, “this should set alarm bells ringing.” The upper middle class succeeds by accumulating skills and qualifications, but also by engaging in various forms of “ opportunity hoarding,” which make it harder for others to rise up to the top. These unfair mechanisms include zoning laws, college admissions procedures, and the allocation of internships. The result is a less competitive economy, Reeves argues, as well as a less open society. Inequality is natural, even desirable, when it results from fair competition. Class gaps that result from unfair advantage, however, generate legitimate resentment from those who are excluded. It is not too late to close the gap, however. Reeves outlines practical steps toward restoring opportunity and weakening class distinctions. This fascinating book shows how American society has become the very class-defined society that earlier Americans rebelled against―and what can be done to restore a more equitable social order.

3
$18.37 USD

An Amazon Best Book of March 2017: The preface of Ariel Levy’s memoir, The Rules Do Not Apply, is a knock-out. Though it’s the Cliffs Notes to her book/life, it’s written with such clarity that it transcends the searing pain and devastating loss that she’s about to chronicle: “I am thunderstruck by feeling at odd times, and then I find myself gripping the kitchen counter, a subway pole, a friend’s body, so I won’t fall over. I don’t mean that figuratively. My sorrow is so intense it often feels like it will flatten me.” With brawny and disarming candor, Levy weaves together the story of her life exactly as she was determined to live it – becoming a staff writer for the New Yorker, falling in love with her partner (“feeling molten and golden and saved”), writing their own vows (“gay marriage wasn’t even legal—we were making it up!”), becoming pregnant at 37 – and how it all came crashing down. Teeming with vitality and wit, The Rules Do Not Apply is a memoir sparkling with insight on grief and grit. --Al Woodworth, The Amazon Book Review “Ariel Levy’s 2013 essay ‘Thanksgiving in Mongolia’ is one of the best pieces of nonfiction I have ever read. If I taught a class on the essay, I would make every damn student memorize it. Levy, a staff writer at The New Yorker, has expanded on this essay into a full memoir out in March, The Rules Do Not Apply. I read it in one big messy gulp, because it is beautiful and heartbreaking and unruly and real. You should preorder it immediately so you can fall into her complicated, funny, and finely wrought world as soon as humanly possible.”—Lenny.com “A thoroughly modern memoir, the elements of The Rules Do Not Apply seem plucked not from the script of Girls, which has also been exploring reproductive issues of late, but Transparent—even Portlandia.”—The New York Times “In reflecting on her own life, Levy’s tone is deeply honest, and at the same time manages to not be defensive or apologetic about her decisions; she’s not judgmental, but remains highly inquisitive. It’s a delicate balance, one rarely pulled off. The through line is her struggle to see things as accurately as possible, to translate her gift for interview and narrative into something personally productive. . . . I loved Levy’s book, and have followed her work for years, which made interviewing her a slight struggle. I had to navigate around what personally resonated with me and what would mean a great deal to other. . . . If you take anything away from our conversation, I hope it’s that you should read The Rules Do Not Apply.”—Jezebel “Frank and unflinchingly sincere . . . A gut-wrenching, emotionally charged work of soul-baring writing in the spirit of Joan Didion, Helen Macdonald, and Elizabeth Gilbert, The Rules Do Not Apply is a must-read for women.”—Bustle “Levy has the rare gift of seeing herself with fierce, unforgiving clarity. And she deploys prose to match, raw and agile. She plumbs the commotion deep within and takes the measure of her have-it-all generation.”—The Atlantic “Cheryl Strayed meets a Nora Ephron movie. You’ll laugh, ugly cry, and finish it before the weekend’s over.”—theSkimm “[The Rules Do Not Apply] is a short, sharp American memoir in the Mary Karr tradition of life-chronicling. Which is to say that Levy, like Karr, is a natural writer who is also as unsparing and bleakly hilarious as it’s possible to be about oneself. . . . I devoured her story in one sitting. It felt, well, greedy. But ‘greedy’ is how the author characterises herself, so it seemed fine, hopeful even, to read her work in the same way, perhaps absorbing as I went a tiny bit of Levy’s remarkable resilience and appetite for life.”—Financial Times “It’s an act of courage to hunt for meaning within grief, particularly if the search upends your life and shakes out the contents for all the world to sift through. Ariel Levy embarks on the hunt beautifully in her new memoir. . . . The Rules Do Not Apply is a search for meaning, not reason. It doesn’t seek an explanation (outside of the medical one) for the death of Levy’s son, any more than it seeks to explain away the love, fear, frustration and other experiences and emotions that take place within her lifetime. Her grief becomes a new part of her—something to understand and get used to. . . . She’s brave and generous to share her story, which manages to be beautiful, even as it’s stark and wrenching.”—Chicago Tribune “I read The Rules Do Not Apply in one long, rapt sitting. Unflinching and intimate, wrenching and revelatory, Ariel Levy’s powerful memoir about love, loss, and finding one’s way shimmers with truth and heart on every page.”—Cheryl Strayed “Every deep feeling a human is capable of will be shaken loose by this profound book. Ariel Levy has taken grief and made art out of it.”—David Sedaris “Ariel Levy is a writer of uncompromising honesty, remarkable clarity, and surprising humor gathered from the wreckage of tragedy. Her account of life doing its darnedest to topple her, and her refusal to be knocked down, will leave you shaken and inspired. I am the better for having read this book.”—Lena Dunham “A great memoir is not a trip through someone else’s life but a series of long looks into your own. Ariel Levy’s book—grieving, hopeful, painful, funny—is that.”—Amy Bloom “It’s become a truism that feminists are living out our mothers’ unlived lives. But Ariel Levy seems to be living out the unlived lives of an entire generation of women, simultaneously. Free to do whatever she chooses, she chooses everything. While reinventing work, marriage, family, pregnancy, sex, and divorce for herself from the ground up, Levy experiences devastating loss. And she recounts it all here with searing intimacy and an unsentimental yet openhearted rigor.”—Alison Bechdel “The Rules Do Not Apply is heartbreaking, brilliant, and disarming, the kind of book that may change you. Ariel Levy writes with a beauty that is ferociously honest and with the fervor of an explorer. No one else has written so insightfully about the current legacy of feminism’s ‘lavish gift’ of freedom. Levy has a voice unlike any other. This is a devastating and inspired book.”—René Steinke
