The Way Of All Flesh (Everyman's Library Classics)

Samuel Butler (1835-1902) made one reputation during his lifetime with his Utopian satire Erewhon, and a second reputation after his death with The Way of All Flesh, published posthumously. This novel, the story of Ernest Pontifex, is a thinly disguised autobiography in which Butler brutally but hilariously savages the financial, sexual, familial and spiritual hypocrisies of late Victorian England.

The Winter's Tale

One of Shakespeare's most haunting and enigmatic late plays, The Winter's Tale is a fine example of Shakespeare's fascination with the dramatic genre of "romance"--the portrayal of magical lands, familial conflict and exile, and final reunion and reconciliation. Drawing on Robert Green's story Pandosto, Shakespeare's play tells the story of the middle-aged Leontes, King of Sicilia, and his childhood friend Polixenes, the King of Bohemia. Leontes mistakenly believes that his friend is having an affair with his wife, Hermione. In his jealousy, and consumed by "tremor cordis", he tries to murder Polixenes, who flees, and accuses his wife of adultery. Hermione gives birth to a baby girl, Perdita, who Leontes denounces as illegitimate, and casts her out into the wilderness. Hermione is ultimately proved innocent, but her son, Mamillius, dies of grief. Hermione collapses, apparently dead, and Leontes is left to pick up the tragic consequences of his actions. Time passes, and the action moves to Bohemia, where the lost child Perdita has grown up a shepherdess in the midst of "great creating nature". The final scenes of the play draw towards resolution and reconciliation between Leontes, Hermione and their lost daughter, culminating in one of Shakespeare's most moving final scenes. One of Shakespeare's most consummate plays, The Winter's Tale is a fascinating study of male insecurity and the relations between art and nature. --Jerry Brotton.

Actors and the Art of Performance: Under Exposure (Performance Philosophy)

Actors and the Art of Performance: Under Exposure combines the author's two main biographical paths: her professional commitment to the fi elds of both theater and philosophy. The art of acting on stage is analyzed here not only from the theoretical perspective of a spectator but also from the perspective of the actor. The author draws on her experience as both a theater actor and a university professor whose teachings in the art of acting rely heavily on her own experience and also on her philosophical knowledge. The book is unique not only in terms of its content but also in terms of its style. Written in a multiplicity of voices, the text oscillates between philosophical reasoning and narrative forms of writing, including micronarratives, fables, parables, and inter alia by Carroll, Hoff mann, and Kleist. Hence the book claims that a transdisciplinary dialogue between the art of acting and the art of philosophical thinking calls for an aesthetic study that questions and begins to seek alternatives to traditionally established and ingrained formats of philosophy.

Magnets and miracles. Loneliness and nostalgia in Pink Floyd's lyrics

Following "Dieci brani da ascoltare almeno una volta nella vita" ("10 songs you should listen to before you die") and the books on Tim Burton and Hayao Miyazaki, Jacopo Caneva's latest work carries out a short, but in-depth study on the concepts of loneliness and nostalgia in Pink Floyd's lyrics, from "The Dark Side of the Moon" to "The Wall". The young writer unveils the common ground of apparently different lyrics: the memory of Syd Barrett, the genius and first leader of the group, the "crazy diamond" who gave the band the name of Pink Floyd, delivering it to myth, disappearing in anonymity after troublesome years. The book is a tribute to the legendary English rock-band and a celebration of the recently released "The Endless River", a new album of previously unreleased songs.

Adventures of Power Postcards from the Set: How I Made an Epic Indie Film

POSTCARDS FROM THE SET: HOW I MADE AN EPIC INDIE FILM tells the story of the making of the cult comedy ADVENTURES OF POWER, an all-star movie about a mine worker who discovers an underground subculture of air-drummers that has the power to change the world. "One of the funniest films in recent years" - New York Magazine. "The best rock movie in many a year" - Neil Peart (drummer, RUSH).

The White Slave

The young filmmaker Rene Daalder and the architecture student Rem Koolhaas wrote the screenplay to Daalder's 1969 film De blanke slavin (The White Slave) in 1967/68. Taking inspiration from B-movies and Luis Bunuel, it is a hall of mirrors that toys with cliches and inverts them into campy provocations. A few years after the Eichmann trial, a man named Gunther Unrat arrives in the Netherlands looking for "good Germans" who helped fight the Nazi occupation. He quickly gets mixed up in a nefarious organization that inspires him to follow in the footsteps of the consummate "good German" Albert Schweitzer by setting up a camp for young Dutch women who think they are training to work in Africa as nurses. Blinded by idealism, he fails to see that his shady partners are scheming to sell them into sexual slavery. The screenplay soon develops into an absurd morality play, challenging all notions of political correctness, then and now. It has been translated from the Dutch by Laura Martz, while Rene Daalder has contributed a preface about the origins and background of the film.

Rocket 88: Classic Singles

What you are about to read is the personal opinion of a team of music fans, journalists and editors on a wide variety of music tracks. Although, while that's what they're called in the post-iTunes world, back when they were first recorded and released, the songs discussed and celebrated in this book had been collectively known as 'singles', and came engraved on slabs of shellac (between 1949 and 1958 or so) and vinyl (from 1955 to 1995 or so). The singles of the latter half of the 20th century were two-sided, with the designated 'A' side being the version that record companies wanted radio stations and jukeboxes to play, and considered to be commercially stronger than the 'B' side (which often appeared only on a single's 'B' side and wasn't usually included on any subsequent LP release). Please bear with me if this is all a little 'duhhh' for those of you old enough to have grown up owning singles, and caring desperately whether your single was going to make the charts each week; there are now at least two generations of music fans for whom the idea of having to leave the house, travel to a specialist store, and ask someone if they could listen to a single before buying it--and receiving a physical object, wrapped in a specially designed sleeve when they hand over hard cash--is plain weird. You try telling kids today that you had to physically hunt out music and travel vast distances just to hear anything other than mainstream pop music, and they will probably laugh at you. They'd probably ask 'Why should you care so much?'

Hopefully, this book will help explain some of why music fans of the rock 'n' roll era and beyond care so much about music. The singles included are not listed in any kind of charts format, nor is it a list of singles you must hear before you die. Many of the singles included here were not the biggest-selling records of the year of their release. However, all of them are considered important milestones in the history of popular music, and all meant something to the writers who've chosen to highlight them. The singles included in this book add up to a short history of popular music as viewed from the hip side. There are major, mainstream hits in here, but equally there are the marginal but inspirational singles which never sold in any significant number outside of the home state of the record label who released it. There are no wilfully obscure singles to be found in this book, although there are some arguably perverse choices for 'Single of the year'. Who'd agree that 'My Boy Lollipop' deserves the accolade for 1964 ahead of 'A Hard Day's Night?'

Prepare to be intrigued, amazed, possibly irritated -- but always inspired to search out copies of each single in order to hear the magical sounds of each year between 1949 and 1999.

The Making of Tornado Chasers: Behind The Scenes Of The Groundbreaking Documentary Series

In The Making of Tornado Chasers, filmmaker Ken Cole gives you a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the treacherous production of the documentary series Tornado Chasers, which follows Reed Timmer's chase team during the historic 2013 tornado season. Including behind-the-scenes anecdotes and first-hand accounts of the tragic events in Moore and El Reno, Oklahoma, Cole tells his personal story through a series of logs covering pre-production through the series premiere.

Ken Cole (author) is an award-winning filmmaker and seasoned storm chaser. Throughout his career Ken has documented over fifty tornadoes, often from close range. His projects have featured renowned weather personalities including Reed Timmer, Jim Cantore, and Ginger Zee. Ken studied meteorology at the University of Oklahoma, and later pursued documentary filmmaking as part of his graduate work. In 2006 he directed the PBS documentary Tornado Glory, his first work featuring Reed Timmer and Joel Taylor. Ken then contributed to the Discovery Channel's Storm Chasers series, and went on to direct the award-winning short film "Heaven's Rage." Most recently, Ken served as executive producer for Tornado Chasers - a groundbreaking documentary series and two-time Webby Award Honoree.

Reed Timmer (foreword) is well-known as the most successful and extreme storm chaser in the world, having intercepted over 500 tornadoes and a dozen powerful hurricanes during the last decade. Reed starred on Discovery Channel's Storm Chasers, and is now featured in the documentary series Tornado Chasers. Reed has constructed three armored vehicles, called "The Dominator" fleet, to withstand the powerful forces of a tornado. He also the author of Into The Storm, covering his early career in storm chasing.

It's Alive!: The Science of B-Movie Monsters (Chicago Shorts)



The B-movie monster--be it gap-toothed gorilla, ripped-from-time dinosaur, overstretched arachnid, or another outrageous anthropomorphic fantasy--has thrilled moviegoers for decades, and firmly sunk its claws into popular culture. In It's Alive!, Michael LaBarbera delves into the science behind these characters' construction, from the biology surrounding tyrannosaurid postures in Jurassic Park and King Kong to the questionable physics employed by The Incredible Shrinking Man. Accompanied by a treasure trove of images from old movie posters and stills, and ranging from the 1930s to such recent films as The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the latest installments of the Alien franchise, It's Alive! cleverly uses science to remind us that the best parts of moviemaking might indeed be magic-for all creatures, great and small.

Ebert's Bests (Chicago Shorts)

Roger Ebert is a name synonymous with the movies. In Ebert's Bests, he takes readers through the journey of how he became a film critic, from his days at a student-run cinema club to his rise as a television commentator in At the Movies and Siskel & Ebert. Recounting the influence of the French New Wave, his friendships with Werner Herzog and Martin Scorsese, as well as travels to Sweden and Rome to visit Ingrid Bergman and Federico Fellini, Ebert never loses sight of film as a key component of our cultural identity. In considering the ethics of film criticism--why we should take all film seriously, without prejudgment or condescension--he argues that film critics ought always to engage in open-minded dialogue with a movie. Extending this to his accompanying selection of "10 Bests," he reminds us that hearts and minds--and even rankings--are bound to change.

Selling Your Film Outside the U.S.: Digital Distribution in Europe

This is the second volume in the "Selling Your Film" case study book series. While our first book, Selling Your Film Without Selling Your Soul, focused on U.S releases and case studies, Selling Your Film Outside the U.S. takes a deep dive into digital distribution (and distribution generally) in Europe and provides several case studies of films released there.

The series began in 2011 as an attempt to encourage transparency in an industry that has always been quite reluctant to do so. Three years later, we are proud to have led the charge towards this goal, and we are encouraged that others are embarking on other projects that attempt to do the same.

Within the pages of this book, you will find marketing and crowdfunding strategies, real distribution budgets, community building activities and detailed ancillary and digital distribution revenues for independently produced films.

By stripping away the mythology surrounding independent film distribution, we aim to present a more realistic picture regarding how filmmakers can earn revenue--and when they cannot--from a variety of release strategies. While there is no one model that will work for a particular film, the books in this series highlight a multitude of new techniques filmmakers are using to directly connect their films with audiences, effectively reach them through the power of the global Internet, and build a sustainable fan base to last throughout a career.?

One of the chapters in this book employs the phrase "Carpe Diem." In the context of digital distribution, this has dual meaning. First, in a harsh world that can tire of one thing and move onto the next in the blink of an eye, we encourage filmmakers to jump into action and formulate a viable and expedient distribution strategy as their films move from the festival circuit onto a larger arena. Second, the digital distribution space is a constantly changing one, where platforms come and go at an astonishing rate. Therefore, it is important that filmmakers not only empower themselves by learning how to navigate the landscape of digital distribution, but by keeping this knowledge up to date as well.

To that aim, we offer Selling Your Film Outside the U.S.--containing chapters by The Film Collaborative co-executive directors Orly Ravid and Jeffrey Winter, marketing strategist and social media expert Sheri Chandler, filmmaker, author and media strategist Jon Reiss, and Wendy Bernfeld, managing director of the European content curation and licensing company Rights Stuff BV.--as the starting point for any filmmaker (whether they are U.S.-based or not) who wishes to explore distributing their film in Europe.

James Bond à la OSS 117: A Laugh A Minute! (Steve's LOL! Book 3)

Here's a fun article on two obscure but hilarious movies that go into my personal list of Cult Classics.

Under the Greenwood Tree (New Wessex editions)

Hardy, Thomas. Under the Greenwood Tree or The Mellstock Quire: A Rural Painting of the Dutch School. Introduction by Angela Thirlwell. Wood Engravings by Peter Reddick. London, The Folio Society, 1990. 15 cm x 23 cm. XX, 172 pages. Original, illustrated hardcover with gilt lettering on spine. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. Slight wear to spine and spotting on page edges. Clean inside with solid binding. Under the Greenwood Tree: A Rural Painting of the Dutch School is a novel by Thomas Hardy, published anonymously in 1872. It was Hardy's second published novel, the last to be printed without his name, and the first of his great series of Wessex novels. Whilst Hardy originally thought of simply calling it The Mellstock Quire, he settled on a title taken from a song in Shakespeare's As You Like It (Act II, Scene V). (Wikipedia) Thomas Hardy was born in a cottage in Higher Bockhampton, near Dorchester, on 2 June 1840. He was educated locally and at sixteen was articled to a Dorchester architect, John Hicks. In 1862 he moved to London and found employment with another architect, Arthur Blomfield. He now began to write poetry and published an essay. By 1867 he had returned to Dorset to work as Hicks's assistant and began his first (unpublished) novel, The Poor Man and the Lady.

The avenue is obstructed by a rough stage, temporarily erected for the performance of amateur theatricals, and which screens the lake from view. There is a dense growth of bushes to the left and right of the stage. A few chairs and a little table are placed in front of the stage. The sun has just set. JACOB and some other workmen are heard hammering and coughing on the stage behind the lowered curtain. MASHA and MEDVIEDENKO come in from the left, returning from a walk.

Then, when she thinks she's on her way to her first seedy trick, Phoenix winds up locked in a limo with no way out. She wakes up in an illegal brothel in New Orleans. Phoenix vows she will find a way to destroy Antoine, the owner of the brothel. Instead of being Antoine's prostitute, she'll become his lover, his confidante, and pretty soon, his manager. And then, when he least suspects it, she'll bring the entire house down. She better be damn good. There will only be one chance. **Content Warning: This book is a drama meant for those over 18 and contains explicit scenes.
