Cheech Marin writes candidly about growing up as a wisecracking kid in south central LA, resisting the draft, and his chance meeting with Tommy Chong--and how they formed one of the most successful comedy acts of all time, breaking up, reuniting, and still performing together to this day. Cheech the storyteller takes the reader on a wild ride along his strange and wonderful path to fame that saw the son of a policeman become the face of the recreational drug movement. He describes his early artistic aspirations to become a potter, his brief stint as a magazine reporter when he interviewed Little Richard, and his surreal and unlikely ascent to the top of the comedy world. Cheech also details how his passion for Chicano art led him to assemble the world's finest private collection, and how he bested the likes of Anderson Cooper to win Celebrity Jeopardy! Written with his trademark comedic flair and replete with colorful characters both famous and obscure, this is a fresh, funny, and unstintingly honest account of an incredible life and career that represents a "new high" in autobiography.--From book jacket.

Capability Brown : designing the English landscape

March 22, 2017
Phibbs, John, author.
280 pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 32 cm
Lancelot 'Capability' Brown's designs are organic, weaving gestures of color and perspective into the features that the country already afforded. So natural are his designs, and so perfectly do they complement the houses within them, that for many a Capability Brown landscape is the epitome of the English estate. His gardens and parklands as much as the houses themselves would become icons of British country life. Published to coincide with the tercentenary of his birth, this book illuminates fifteen of Brown's most celebrated landscapes. Including rarely seen archival drawings that shed light on Brown's process, this book serves as a guide to Britain's most beloved landscapes and an exploration of the masterful mind behind their creation.
