Kelley's greatest hits:
  • David Sedaris: Live for Your Listening Pleasure

    "Overpriced and Undergood"

    Overall

    You'd have to be a HUGE David Sedaris fan to be happy with this purchase.
    But wait a minute - that's wrong. Being a HUGE David Sedaris fan is what made me hate this purchase. Because I've already heard/read everything in it on This American Life or in the New Yorker. And I've listened to his great stuff often enough to know that this is all very much his B game.
    So only buy this if you don't like David Sedaris at all.
    Or wait til Audible comes to its senses and sells it for $4.95. It has a pleasure content similar to that of a Mocha Grande so I think that price is fair.
    But 14 bucks is just stupid.

  • "With this faith we will be able to ..."

    8 of 14 helpful votes


    I was born after the 1963 Washington D.C. March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. I don't remember ever not knowing about Martin Luther King, Jr's August 28, 1963 "I Have a Dream" speech. Until I heard an NPR interview of Dustin Volz, who had written a story for The National Journal, I didn't realize that I hadn't ever heard the entire speech.

    The "I Have a Dream" speech is under copyright protection until 2038. The Estate of Martin Luther King, Jr. Inc. holds the copyright, and enforces it vigorously. Legally, it's entitled to, but there's a huge debate about whether morally, it should, given its historical importance. I'll leave that debate to others - I was more than happy to pay for this Audible to hear the entire speech.

    King, delivering the speech at the Lincoln Memorial 100 years after Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, gives the famous words "I Have a Dream" historic context, including the 1963 reality of segregation. He builds to a crescendo, with the encouragement of Mahalia Jackson, who can be heard on the Audible.

    There is so much more to this speech than the common excerpts we see and hear.

    It is the best speech I've ever listened to.

    [The title of this review is from a portion of the "I Have a Dream" speech.]

    "I have a dream today." On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King spoke these words as he addressed a crowd of more than 200,000 civil rights protesters gathered at The Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. Two months earlier, President John Kennedy had sent a civil rights bill to Congress, but it was struck down. Although Kennedy was concerned about the possibility of widespread violence during this protest, he realized he was powerless to stop it and embraced the movement instead.

    In this lecture, Dr. Hawkins presents some basic ideas, such as the fact that everything happens spontaneously and that nothing causes anything. Everything is an automatic consequence of the energy field. He shows how the power of one’s intention brings about manifestation, and how potentiality becomes actuality in and of itself because of the field. He explains the use of kinesiology, why people may not believe in it, and how the infinite field of consciousness instantly registers truth.

    Dr. Hawkins explains that everything is spontaneously being what it is and that nothing is causing anything. He talks about the pathway of negation and the Void, and goes into detail about karmic inheritance and how it affects our lives. Of great benefit is the information he supplies about relationships and the levels upon which they may exist, including the qualities of horizontal and vertical relationships (i.e., alignment vs. involvement). He goes into detail about the ego, how it loves suffering, loss, hatred, and even grieving, and the “juice” it gets out of that.

Intention, he explains, is not something you do, but an energy you're a part of. Not only do you emanate from the field of intention, but if you align yourself to it, your desires become fulfilled and you find yourself at peace.

Alec Baldwin gives a delightful over-the-top performance of James Thurber’s wonderfully silly classic tale of the day everybody in a small Ohio town thought the dam broke.
