By Rafael Fuchsgruber,Ralf Kerkeling

Vom Partykönig zum Extremläufer

Als DJ und Konzertveranstalter führte Rafael Fuchsgruber ein wildes und extrem ungesundes Leben – bis er eines Tages mit Verdacht auf Herzinfarkt im Krankenhaus liegt. Danach krempelt er sein Leben um. Alkohol und Zigaretten wandern auf den Müll, und er beginnt mit Anfang Vierzig wieder zu laufen. Gerade mal drei Kilometer sind es im ersten Versuch. Heute ist er der erfolgreichste deutsche Extremläufer in den Wüsten dieser Welt.

Running wild beschreibt biografisch das Leben Fuchsgrubers und seine Liebe zum Laufen. Der Ausnahmesportler nimmt den Leser mit auf seine Abenteuerläufe in die Wüsten rund um den Globus, bezieht Stellung zu Trainings- oder Equipmentfragen und gewährt Einblicke in seine Arbeit bei Konzerten mit großen Künstlern. Fuchsgruber blickt ehrlich und ungeschönt auf wilde und teilweise erschreckende Zeiten in seinem abwechslungsreichen Leben zurück.

Der Journalist Ralf Kerkeling begleitet Rafael Fuchsgruber und seine Läufer-Karriere seit einigen Jahren für different Laufmagazine. Zusammen beschreiben die beiden seinen Weg von Rock ’n’ Roll, Alkohol und vielen Partys hin zum Extremläufer.

By Omegh

No meio de um aparente diálogo, a Consciência da Existência viaja até a época de Jesus, onde nos revela a condição andrógina do Profeta e alguns ensinamentos não religiosos, mas em linha com a realidade atual.
Em outra viagem simultânea, a mesma Consciência recorre à vida dos iniciadores deste mundo, onde se desmistifica a existência de um deus criador.
Ali, nos relata os enfrentamentos na civilização dos Alos e de seus adversários, os Rags. Tudo isso em um mundo de andróginos, descendentes distantes de Jesus, que buscam decifrar a mensagem do seu profeta Lasio, e lutam para alcançar Gam, o céu de seus criadores.
Ao longo de seu caminho, a Consciência da Existência é testemunha de como os Alos redescobriram o prazer de acariciar seus corpos, fato perseguido e punido em suas crenças. Os Rags, entretanto, desenvolveram os Roths, máquinas aladas dotadas de inteligência biossintética, e os usam para reprimir o povo dos Umos que, no desejo de se protegerem se juntam aos Alos, compartilhando com eles o prazer de se tocar e a desmistificação de suas divindades...

El Kahal - Oro (Spanish Edition) by Hugo Wast

By Hugo Wast

Cuando pensemos de otro modo, ¿será tiempo todavía? Repitamos las palabras de Bernardo Lazare, cuyo testimonio es irrecusable: ''El día en que el judío ocupó una función civil, el estado cristiano se puso en peligro.''

Nadie como el judío está armado para esta conquista common, que no se realizará por l. a. espada, sino por el oro, el amia de los tiempos modernos. . En muchos pueblos se está librando ya los angeles gran batalla financiera, que primero conduce a l. a. problem, luego a los angeles guerra y, finalmente, a los angeles revolución. El judío l. a. fomenta, los angeles dirige, l. a. subvenciona y cuando ha hecho tabla rasa del estado cristiano, l. a. sofoca y se instala en el Capitolio vacío, a gobernar bajo los angeles inspiración del Kahal, precursor del Anticristo. los angeles Revolución rusa es un ejemplo real y completo. Y ésta es l. a. razón por l. a. que en todos los pueblos, el grito contra el que se ha levantado constante y enérgicamente l. a. voz de los Papas: ''¡muera el judío!'' haya querido ser sinónimo de ''¡viva los angeles Patria!'' Porque dos naciones no pueden coexistir en l. a. misma nación.

By Francesco Mandelli

Osnago non è come l. a.. O forse è l. a. a non essere come Osnago. O forse posti e luoghi non sono in grado di dividere e ordinare storie che sono di ogni dove e di tutti. Osnangeles è un pugno di tipologie umane, barbieri, pasticceri, spacciatori, robivecchi, anziani ma soprattutto ragazzi, come il rachitico Enrichetto, che tenta il suicidio regolarmente pur avendo, fortunato lui, il Fifty Malaguti. Osnangeles è un luogo dove il gergo giovanile si sposa con il dialetto, e dove le nuove parole del mondo, da leggins a transessuale, portano a un paese dove i pezzi del mondo che verrà si infrangono sulle coscienze in formazione dei suoi abitanti. Osnangeles è los angeles gioventù del nongiovane: una galleria di personaggi surreali, poetici, ingenui e divertenti lanciata insieme in una rincorsa verso scoperte, sconfitte e vittorie in una Osnangeles che piacerebbe (molto) anche a Los Angeles.
