Who cares about the suffering--existential, financial, or other--of those who blindly mismanaged our monies into this ever-expanding, nay, verily bottomless pit of debt?

Fueled by a mass layoff, a thumb drive, and a rocket-scientist-cum-analyst who really understands the numbers, the last night of good times on Wall Street unfolds as rung by rung, up the executive ladder, travels news that is -- apocalyptic. For viewers who still have no idea of how 2008's meltdown happened, this film is one fiction that will make it ever so much more real

Lolita by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Recording )

35 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it was published in 1955, Lolita immediately became a cause célèbre because of the freedom and sophistication with which it handled the unusual erotic predilections of its protagonist. But Vladimir Nabokov's wise, ironic, elegant masterpiece owes its stature as one of the twentieth century's novels of record not to the controversy its material aroused but to its author's use of that material to tell a love story almost shocking in its beauty and tenderness. Awe and exhilaration--along with heartbreak and mordant wit abound in this account of the aging Humbert Humbert's obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze. Lolita is also the story of a hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar America, but most of all, it is a meditation on love, love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation

Still life at the Penguin Cafe by Simon Jeffes( Visual )

6 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(The Penguin Cafe Orchestra) This programme celebrates the music of the Penguin Cafe Orchestra which, in the words of Simon Jeffes caters for an audience "capable of enjoying Wilson Pickett, Beethoven, the Rolling Stones, choral music from West Africa, Bach, Stravinksy, Irish bagpipe music and even Abba on the odd occasion". (Still life at the Penguin Cafe) The idiosyncratic music and imaginary world of Simon Jeffes, founder of the Penguin Cafe Orchestra, prompted David Bintley to create this ballet, set in a cafe where penguins resemble people and people resemble penguins. Here, an exuberant cabaret is presented by a succession of exotic creatures. The inventive and amusing choreography, enlivened by Hayden Griffin's ingenious sets and costumes, also highlights the plight of the world's endangered species. The Royal Ballet performs in this studio recording
