Caddyshack ($7) kicked off the 80s with a bang. The movie was awesome but the stories of the partying that took place during the filming are legendary. Directed by Harold Ramis and starring Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, and Bill Mary, this movie is about a very exclusive golf course that the primary character, Danny Noonan (Michael O'Keefe), works at. He's trying to raise money to go to college and his best chance is to win a caddy scholarship from Judge Elihu Smails (Ted Knight), the owner of the Country Club. Sub plots includes Ty Webb (Chevy Chase) who helps Danny understand his real goals, Al Czervik (Rodney Dangerfield), a millionaire who wants to buy the Club, and of course Carl Spackler (Bill Murray), the unhinged grounds keeper will do anything to kill a gopher. Caddyshack is a great flick and worth seeing all over again.
Genius and Heroin ($15) asks the provocative questions; what is the price you pay for brilliance? And why do so many of those considered to be creative genius' also have a self destruct button?

With full illustrations this book itself is addictive as you read through the messy lives of some of the most iconic figures that have played a part in our lives. It is entertaining and also thought provoking and tries to get into their psyche and discover why they took the path they did.

While maximum range on a single charge is expected to be over 300 miles. One of the most intriguing updates has to do with the charger.

They are also in the planning stages for optional equipment that will allow the Mission E to be recharged wirelessly through induction. Expect to see the Mission E hit the roads in a about 3-4 years.
