In the not-too-distant future, some 30 years after the final war, a solitary man walks across the wasteland that was once America. A warrior not by choice but necessity, Eli (Denzel Washington) seeks only peace but, if challenged, will cut his attackers down before they realize their fatal mistake. It's not his life he guards so fiercely but his hope for the future; a hope he has carried and protected for 30 years and is determined to realize. Driven by this commitment and guided by his belief in something greater than himself, Eli does what he must to survive–and continue. Only one other man in this ruined world understands the power Eli holds, and is determined to make it his own: Carnegie (Gary Oldman), the self-appointed despot of a makeshift town of thieves and gunmen. Meanwhile, Carnegie's adopted daughter Solara (Mila Kunis) is fascinated by Eli for another reason: the glimpse he offers of what may exist beyond her stepfather's domain.

Publisher: Booktrope

Seller: Libertary Company


In rural Missouri in the 1970s, thirteen-year-old Pearl Swinton has just had her first mystical vision. There is no place for Pearl’s “gift” in the bloody reality of subsistence farming and rural poverty. As her visions unfold, she must find her way in a family and a community that react with fear and violence. When Pearl discovers that her Aunt Nadine, the family shame, has a similar gift, she bicycles across the state to find her. That trip unexpectedly throws Pearl into a journey to save her runaway sister and sends her into a deep exploration of herself, her visions, and her visceral relationship to the earth. Told with fierce lyricism, Earth is a story about the importance of finding one’s own truth and sense of self in dire circumstances and against the odds. It is also a story about the link between understanding ourselves and our relationship with the earth.  In this first of the four-book Elemental Journey Series that will follow Pearl across continents and into adulthood, Caroline Allen introduces a form of storytelling that is unflinching in its honesty, filled with compassion, and underscored with originality. Includes a thought-provoking Book Group Guide.

Allen Iverson Signs With Stance Socks

Allen Iverson officially retired from the NBA two years ago, but his influence is still potent. So it makes sense that A.I. has signed with Stance to be the sock brand’s latest ambassador. 

Stance made the announcement today (May 28), and the Virginia native joints Klay Thompson, Chandler Parsons, Dwyane Wade and more in becoming one of the brand’s official endorsers.

Says Stance:

Simply put, Allen Iverson is the uncommon thread. Over the course of a 14 year NBA career, Iverson averaged a staggering 26.7 points, 6.2 assists and 2.2 steals per game. The long-time Philadelphia 76er was voted onto 11 All-Star teams, was named NBA MVP in 2001 and is a surefire hall of famer. As impactful as his game was on the court, though, the 6-0 dynamo made an even bigger cultural dent off of it. The native of Virginia brought cornrows, tats and headbands to the NBA. He brought style, attitude and hip-hop to the league. More than that, he brought them to pop culture. In short, Iverson made it OK to be yourself, to be uncompromising, to be real. He made it OK to be uncommon.

Can’t hurt A.I.’s bottom line to get another dependable check coming in. Peep Stance’s exclusive interview with Iverson below.

8 Stories From The New Allen Iverson Doc That Will Make You See The Superstar Differently

Just as there have been few, if any, NBA players as electrifying as Allen Iverson, there have also been few, if any, as controversial.

He may be the player who crossed over Michael Jordan in his rookie year, but off-court drama has swirled around the former MVP since he was a high school superstar in Virginia. He was arrested as a teen for a bowling alley fight, stirred up controversy by injecting hip-hop style into the NBA and made headlines for talking about practice.

But a new documentary on the NBA legend’s life, simply titled “Iverson,” attempts to put those moments and more within the context necessary to truly understand why he made the decisions he made. More often than you’d expect, it ends up we weren’t told the whole story.

The film, which first aired Saturday on Showtime, is also the directorial debut of Zatella Beatty. In a phone conversation with The Huffington Post, Beatty admitted that when she first began working on the film ten years ago, she wasn’t sure what the final product would look like. What it became, however, is a powerful film that turns the typical narrative ascribed to Iverson on its head.

Throughout the film, stories emerge of a person who is quite different than the man depicted by the media over the last two decades, all of which help to show one of the NBA’s most enigmatic players in a whole new light.

Here are just some of the stories that might change the way you see the NBA legend.

1. As a child, Iverson protected his best friend, a white boy in a predominantly black project, who was picked on because of his race

Iverson said in the doc that his best friend, Jamie Rogers, was often teased because he was white, so Iverson looked out for him. “That was my little partner,” Iverson said.

Rogers’ mother confirmed as much in the doc, saying Iverson often watched out for and took care of the younger kids. Iverson also loved to teach Rogers sports tricks.

“The first time I ever met Bubba Chuck [Iverson’s nickname] he asked me did I ever play football? And I told him I didn’t know anything about football. And he said, ‘Put the ball like this and just throw it!’ And I just threw a perfect spiral,” Rogers said in the documentary.

“He could teach anybody,” Rogers said. “He just wanted you to be good.”

2. Iverson’s football coach helped him turn his life around

After Iverson failed the eighth grade, he moved into the home of his football coach, Gary “Mo” Moore.

“I went from the projects, to a real house. It was a big difference,” Iverson said of the home in Hampton, Virginia.

Later, after discovering Iverson had missed 69 days of school, Moore grabbed the child and threw him on top of a car. “I wasn’t going to allow him to fail,” Moore said.

Allen called it a wake-up call. Moore would become Iverson’s personal manager.

“I never had a biological son, but I felt that sort of connection with him,” Moore said.

3. Iverson was actually a class clown in high school

Home videos show footage of Iverson doing impressions, dancing and joking around — a far cry from the fierce competitor people often saw on the court.

“He was a kid that would sing on the bus,” Janet Bailey, Iverson’s math teacher said. “But not in the class. He’s was quiet in class.”

4. Home video footage shows Iverson wasn’t actually the main aggressor in the bowling alley fight that almost cost him his career

After a 1993 fight started in a bowling alley between a group of white people and Iverson’s friends, the basketball player was identified as the main assailant. But home footage actually showed the teenager leaving the scene.

Just 17 at the time, Iverson was nevertheless tried as an adult. Charged and found guilty with three counts of maiming, the national basketball prospect faced up to 60 years, but was sentenced to 15. Ten were suspended.

“People wanted to make an example of him,” Mike Bailey said.

“That was true injustice,” his wife added.

5. Iverson says he owes Tom Brokaw — yes, Tom Brokaw — a lot

Brokaw covered the story of Iverson’s incarceration and interviewed him from jail. Brokaw said he thinks it helped to get people to look at what was going on and see Iverson’s case differently.

“I got a lot of love for NBC, Tom Brokaw,” Iverson said. “He did a lot for me, and I appreciate him and I owe a lot him for that.”

Iverson was granted conditional clemency by then-Virginia Gov. Douglas Wilder shortly thereafter.

6. Georgetown didn’t actually recruit Iverson. His mother convinced coach John Thompson to let him join the team

After Iverson’s legal troubles, recruiters stopped calling.

“I never recruited Allen at all, they recruited me. I was a little reluctant in the beginning,” then-Georgetown basketball coach John Thompson said.

Thompson said it was Iverson’s mother “more than anybody” else that convinced him to take a chance on her son.

“Coach Thompson saved my life,” Iverson said.

7. Iverson now admits “99 percent” of his fights with Philadelphia 76ers head coach Larry Brown were his fault

“Ninety-nine percent of them were my fault,” Iverson said of the “riffs” he and Brown got into. “We clashed at times but I knew that the love was always there.”

Croce added that Brown never wanted to be “the bad guy,” and he was the one who had to suspend Iverson for missing practice.

“Highly talented, highly sensitive, highly headstrong individuals that come from two different worlds” was how former 76ers president, Pat Croce, described the pair.
iverson larry brown

8. Iverson’s famous “practice” speech is much less ridiculous if you know the entire context for it

Say “Iverson,” and one of the first thing people will probably say back is “We’re talking about practice?” Ironically enough, most people don’t know that Iverson wasn’t only talking about practice when he was talking about practice.

But what many have said in the film is that Iverson’s words were clipped into a salacious sound bite. Iverson explains in the film that he wasn’t discounting the value of practice, as it seemed. Instead he felt that he felt it was “silly” to talk about practice rather than the bigger picture, which for him, included the recent death of a friend and a playoff loss.

“I’m upset for one reason, man. Cause I’m in here. I lost. I lost my best friend,” Iverson also said during the press conference. “I lost him. And I lost this year … and then I’m dealing with this, right here.”

Man Charged With Assault After Alleged Disturbance At Woody Allen Movie Set

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A man accused of throwing furniture on the set of a Woody Allen movie in Rhode Island’s capital has been arrested and charged with assault.

Providence police say the man tossed a chair and assaulted security guards Tuesday on the set, which is near Brown University. Security guards tell WPRI-TV the man went to the set and began asking “weird questions” about the movie’s stars, who include Emma Stone, Joaquin Phoenix and Parker Posey.

Allen has been filming in Rhode Island since last month.

Police identify the man as Mark Spiridakos. They say he ran from the set and was tackled and then was taken to a hospital with a head injury.

Spiridakos can’t be reached for comment in the hospital. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.

Stacie Lane, Parke Allen

This beautiful dark slut with oversize boobs is lying by herself in the sauna, masturbating furiously. She begins by probing her clit and fingering herself and then progresses to fucking herself with a massive dildo. However, she just can’t seem to get herself off. Just then, another black chick enters, with long, straight black hair and equally big juggs. She takes over, expertly using the dildo to get the first tramp off good. Then the second girl stands up while the babe who has just cum kneels in front of her and licks her twat. Then they take turns masturbating each other with a variety of sex toys until they’ve both orgasmed.
