Furby
Furby

Okay, okay, so
Furby
was last Christmas. Then again, it's such a fascinating (and learning) thing, that it certainly does belong at Brainstor(e)ming! You can even pick up the Furby Trainer's Guide for good measure.
Glider Pro
Glider Pro CD

Fly your Glider through the many houses of this newer version of an old favorite. You can even pick up more player-designed houses around the Net. Why would I feature this at the Brain Store? All I can say is that it's fun, and it really does involve a lot of physics/engineering! CD for Mac by Casady & Greene.
Green Eggs and Ham  So, we all love Dr. Seuss, but this is the computer book with additional activities. So, let's eat!  The Game of LIFE  Now, I remember playing this back when it was just a board game, but of course, that was the age before personal computers. The Game of LIFE is a classic, and this version has been well-received for it's graphics and other amenities. (CD for Win from Hasbro Interactive)
Where is Thumbkin?  Great for the younger crowd (toddler - K), all 26 children's songs on this CD lend themselves to activities.  Triple Play 2000  Batter up! Triple Play 2000 offers your chance to be in the major leagues. CD for Win95/98 from Electronic Arts
Clue II: Murder At Boddy Mansion  A lot of us played Clue on a board, but our kids will play it on the computer and across the 'net. Of course, you can get the movie for even more fun.  Goren's New Bridge Complete  Long considered the "Bible" of contract bridge, this is a must have for any person who even considers playing the game.

Book Feature
Time, Love, Memory
Time, Love, Memory: A Great Biologist and His Quest for the Origins of Behavior by Jonathan Weiner is the tale of Seymour Benzer, one of the great geneticists, characters, teachers, and men of our time. This is the story of a scientist and his fascination with nature, and it's told by an author who has aolready won a Pulitzer Prize for his previous book (The Beak of the Finch). Palm IIIx
Palm IIIx
I did find a Palm III in my mailbox, and I am quickly becoming addicted. Everyone I know who has one loves it. This system is the Palm IIIx portable connected organizer.
The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat. A collection of clinical tales from Oliver Sacks, the famous neurologist. I have reviewed this title in this month's Cape Horn. APC BF280C Back-UPS 280 Battery Backup and Surge Suppression An APC uninterruptible power supply (UPS) instantly switches your computer to emergency battery backup power and allows you to work through brief power outages without data loss or downtime.
Vox: A Novel This novel from the early 1990s caused quite a stir when it first came out. Indeed, even now the reviews are mixed (just take a look at Amazon.com). However, it is a thought-provoking treatment of the anonymity that things like a party line, and yes, even an Internet chat room, can provide. American Heritage Talking Dictionary 4.0 Classic A new experience in dictionaries, one that talks back. Now, be sure of the pronounciation (and the definition) before you use the word! CD for Win by The Learning Company.
The New Quotable Woman A collection of quotes by women by Eline Partnow, assembled in a manner similar to Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, although, unfortunately, most of these won't be as familiar to most people. However, it's a good source of quotes and ideas, just the same. Chicago Manual of Style One of those "must have" books for anyone who writes for a living, especially if you need to reference a number of unique sources of information.

Music Movies
Arlo Guthrie
Arlo Guthrie: Alice's Restaurant
Arlo Guthrie: Alice's Restaurant
This CD is just one of those classics that is a wonderful story, and a lot of fun. The title track tells the story of the "Alice's Restaurant Massacree," which is rather a favorite of folk people all over the world.
Can't Take It with You
You Can't Take It with You
The perfect antidote for Dilbertian cynicism is Frank Capra's masterpiece, You Can't Take It With You (1938), starring Jimmy Stewart as a financier's heir in the Depression who gives it all up for Jean Arthur and her kooky family.
Natalie Cole: Unforgettable Natalie gets to pair up with her father on the title track, for a truly wonderful combination! This special edition package contains the UNFORGETTABLE CD, an additional CD with Cole's version of "The Christmas Song" and a video featuring the "Unforgettable" video and "The Christmas Song." The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit If you want the 50's version of life in the corporate (and World War II) trenches, try Gregory Peck in The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit (1956) as an executive who faces a choice between family and career while waxing nostalgic for the simplicity of his service in Italy.
Al Hirt: Bourbon Street Parade A collection the late trumpeter Al Hirt's great Dixieland numbers, including "When the Saints Go Marchin' In." He'll be missed. 9 to 5 The 80's feminist revenge movie 9 to 5 (1980), starring Dolly, Jane, and Lily, starts a trend brought to a climax by Thelma and Louise. Dabney Coleman is terrific as the obnoxious boss giving the good ladies a hard time.
Mel Tormé: Concord Jazz Heritage Series A lot of people will also miss Mel Tormé, who died on June 5th (the day this page was designed). This collection from the Concord Jazz Heritage Series was just released last year. L.A. Confidential On a more serious note, one of the best movies of 1997, L.A. Confidential (or get it on DVD) gives us the inside scoop on corruption in L.A., with dynamite performances by Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce, and especially Kim Basinger. Who knew she could act? Try the book by James Ellroy for an extra layer of conspiracy too hot for Hollywood.
