Labor Day, 1969. Two recent Harvard graduates move to New York to edit a new magazine called the National Lampoon. Brilliant humorists Henry Beard and Doug Kenney presided over a team that within a decade transformed American culture and conquered the mainstream with a brand of subversive humor that provoked, offended, and often illuminated. With unparalleled access to the architects and impresarios of this boom, journalist Ellin Stein takes us behind the jokes to witness the fighting, partying, collaboration, and competition of those who led a rebellion of the self-consciously disenchanted. At its zenith the brand birthed the anarchic earthiness of John Belushi, the suave slapstick of Chevy Chase, and the deadpan wit of Bill Murray. Set against the roiling political and cultural landscape of the 1970s, That's Not Funny, That's Sick brims with insiders' stories while offering crucial insight into a raucous transformation in comedy that still echoes today.
Examines the evidence for and against the existence of UFOs, ETs, and alien abductions. He explores why the scientific establishment has discounted the evidence and how the U.S. government collected and then suppressed reports of seemingly inexplicable sightings of space vehicles and alien abductions. This wide-ranging exploration of all things off-planet includes UFO evidence between 1947 and 1965 as well as how the Cold War caused the major Western powers to keep that evidence out of the news, an examination of six well-documented abduction cases, the changing nature of UFO phenomenon from 1965 to the present, and a controversial analysis of the nexus between science, politics, and UFOs. Part history, part exposition, and part philosophy of science, this is a book that encourages readers to maintain an open mind when thinking about extraterrestrial contact; to think about the implications to the truth that we are truly not alone.
