Daily Deals: 1,000 Recordings to Hear Before You Die and Dead Runner
Today Amazon offer 1,000 Recordings to Hear Before You Die by Tom Moon for $0.99 as usual for Dealy Deals.
The musical adventure of a lifetime. The most exciting book on music in years. A book of treasure, a book of discovery, a book to open your ears to new worlds of pleasure. Doing for music what Patricia Schultz—author of the phenomenal 1,000 Places to See Before You Die—does for travel, Tom Moon recommends 1,000 recordings guaranteed to give listeners the joy, the mystery, the revelation, the sheer fun of great music.
This is a book both broad and deep, drawing from the diverse worlds of classical, jazz, rock, pop, blues, country, folk, musicals, hip-hop, world, opera, soundtracks, and more. It’s arranged alphabetically by artist to create the kind of unexpected juxtapositions that break down genre bias and broaden listeners’ horizons— it makes every listener a seeker, actively pursuing new artists and new sounds, and reconfirming the greatness of the classics. Flanking J. S. Bach and his six entries, for example, are the little-known R&B singer Baby Huey and the ’80s Rastafarian hard-core punk band Bad Brains. Farther down the list: The Band, Samuel Barber, Cecelia Bartoli, Count Basie, and Afropop star Waldemer Bastos.
Each entry is passionately written, with expert listening notes, fascinating anecdotes, and the occasional perfect quote—”Your collection could be filled with nothing but music from Ray Charles,” said Tom Waits, “and you’d have a completely balanced diet.” Every entry identifies key tracks, additional works by the artist, and where to go next. And in the back, indexes and playlists for different moods and occasions.
Dead Runner is a game for your Kindle Fire. Today only you can get this app for free.
Your Worst Nightmare
Imagine waking up in a dark forest, surrounded by the sounds of the wailing souls trapped in the haunted trees. The howling wind is delivering a chilling message of evil, drawing closer by the second. The cold whispers of the forgotten souls tell you to run as far as you can, as fast as you can, before it’s too late. You cannot hide or stop, for it can see you, find you, and take you.
Run to Save Yourself
Step into the dark and dreary world of Dead Runner. Your aim is to run as far and fast as you can without slamming yourself into a tree or a stone, but fast enough to avoid getting caught from behind. Navigate through the haunted forest, around the head stones and shadowy trees, by tilting your device to change direction. As you flee, you will encounter “tragic stones” throughout the forest, memorials to those who preceded you…and lost. When you are overtaken or hit an obstacle, you will receive a score for your efforts, and find it nearly impossible to not try again…and again…hoping to survive.
3 Bone-Chilling Game Modes
Where the game lacks in bells and whistles, it makes up for it with its supremely creepy sound effects and imagery. You can choose from three different game modes to immerse yourself in a nightmare at a frightening speed, including Distance, Chase, and Points mode.
Earn dozens of chilling achievements for your heroic efforts, each categorized by game mode, such as Grave Digger, Close Call, Pedal to the Metal, and more. In the game’s settings, you can adjust the sound volume and control the tilt sensitivity to suit your device.
Hopefully you’re not afraid of the dark…
