In the case of the Friends of the Memphis Public Library, you might just find a book worth $1,250. That's how much the organization made off a 1968 first-edition of a science-fiction book called "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick.  More HERE.

Blade Runner 2017  by li xiang


Taking inspiration from the futuristic aural world of Ridley Scott's 1982 film "Blade Runner", composer and sound designer Gavin Salkeld has created a seamless sixty-minute suite of original music and sound effects that immerse the listener in the world of "Blade Runner". Featuring compositions inspired both by key scenes in the film and the film's original score by Vangelis, DANGEROUS DAYS is a bold and hypnotic experience.
