View: 9802*Silent Scream!* Kass Kennedy is nobody's idol. She does forget the lyrics. She's not a gleek. The x factor? Not her! Read her lips: She has the right to remain silent. Just try telling that to her dad. Because he's totally lost it this time, demanding Kass audition for a TV talent show. Which would be slightly less than death-by-embarrassment if Kass could (duh!) actually sing. And if even the smallest part of her craved the spotlight. Stardom is her dad's dream, not hers. But he's so fragile, she's afraid he just might crack if she doesn't go through with his latest, craziest plan. Not helping: Her hopelessly MIA mom. The budding criminal mastermind also known as her kid brother. And amateur shrink Izzy and used-to-be-sweet Char, who've gone all frenemies over a boy in brown boots. (Don't ask.) It's only rock n' roll? If only! Inside, Kass is screaming, but no one is listening. How loud does a girl have to shout to be heard?

View: 5954Affe auf zwei Rädern: Der Affe Coco lebt bei seinem Freund, dem Mann mit dem gelben Hut. Er ist aufgeregt, denn heute vor drei Jahren ist er aus dem Dschungel hierher gebracht worden und darf deshalb am Abend mit in den Zirkus. Aber vorher erhält er ein Fahrrad als Geschenk und da er schon Rad fahren kann, probiert er sich bald an kleinen Kunststücken. Doch schon bald wird ihm langweilig und er fährt auf die Strasse, wo er gerne einem Zeitungsjungen hilft, die Zeitungen auszuliefern, bis er Jungen am Bach sieht, die Schiffe fahren lassen, worauf er die restlichen Zeitungen zur Flotte faltet und schwimmen lässt. Auf seiner spontanen Weiterfahrt landet er schliesslich im Zirkus, rettet einem kleinen Bären das Leben und darf seine Kunststücke zeigen, bevor er mit seinem Freund wieder nach Hause fährt. Der eher betulichen Geschichte mit den süsslichen Illustrationen sieht man an, dass sie aus den fünfziger Jahren ist. Ob es wirklich nötig ist, bei dem heute so breiten, künstlerisch starken Bilderbuchmarkt Rückgriffe auf Oldtimer zu machen, ist fraglich. Es gibt Klassiker, bei denen man sich eine Neuauflage wünschte, das vorliegende Buch gehört nicht dazu. Ab 5 Jahren, ***, Monika Hedinger.

Writing the Comedy-Centered Screenplay

View: 486Whoever wrote "Make 'em laugh!" knew that it's easier said than done. But people love to laugh, and good comedy will always sell. With the help of this complete and entertaining guide, writers and would-be writers for film and television can look forward to writing comedy that goes far beyond stereotypic jokes and characters. In Laughing Out Loud, award-winning screenwriter and author Andrew Horton blends history, theory, and analysis of comedy with invaluable advice. Using examples from Chaplin to Seinfeld, Aristophanes to Woody Allen, Horton describes comedy as a perspective rather than merely as a genre and then goes on to identify the essential elements of comedy. His lively overview of comedy's history traces its two main branches—anarchistic comedy and romantic comedy—from ancient Greece through contemporary Hollywood, by way of commedia dell'arte, vaudeville, and silent movies. Television and international cinema are included in Horton's analysis, which leads into an up-close review of the comedy chemistry in a number of specific films and television shows. The rest of the book is a practical guide to writing feature comedy and episodic TV comedy, complete with schedules and exercises designed to unblock any writer's comic potential. The appendices offer tips on networking, marketing, and even producing comedies, and are followed by a list of recommended comedies and a bibliography.

A history of gay and lesbian activism in Australia
Author: Graham Willett
Publisher: Allen & Unwin
View: 4983From law reform to Lesbian Sex Wars, from Young Gays to Grey Gays, via demos, drag and dancing. For 40 years, Australian lesbians, gay men and their friends have struggled to change the way homosexuals are treated and thought about. And they have been remarkably successful. Laws dating back to King Henry VIII have been repealed in all states and territories. But even before that was achieved, demands for full legal equality had moved on to the public agenda; the points of view of homosexual men and women became part of mainstream media. In transforming society, lesbians and gay men have also transformed themselves. The old attitudes of fear and self-loathing are gone. Gay Pride is now a powerful force in the lives of millions. The communities that have been forged along the way are a significant part of Australia's rich multicultural mix - and major players in the economy. Living Out Loud is the first full-length account of this remarkable movement and the first to attempt a national perspective. Lively, thoughtful and often surprising, this is a story of events and people who changed society.
Author: Joyce Meyer

View: 941Jesus said, 'You must love the Lord your God with all your soul, mind and strength; and love your neighbour as yourself.' If you had to choose a single verse in the Bible that is a formula for successful living, this would be the one to live by, says Joyce Meyer. Many Christians get mixed up about love. They know they should love God, they know they should love others - but they don't understand what it means to love themselves. Joyce believes that this misconception is one of the greatest pitfalls in the Christian journey. Loving oneself in a balanced, healthy manner is essential in order to have healthy relationships with God and others. Through these inspiring and thoughtful devotions, readers will learn: How to fall in love with God because of who He is rather than what he can give us. Why we cannot truly love ourselves until we truly love God. Why we must love ourselves in order to love others - because it's impossible to give away something you don't possess. Practical ways to put these principles into action and enjoy richer relationships. This powerful volume combines the trademark practical teaching, sound psychology and useful insights that Joyce Meyer is known for and will form a firm basis for devotions for years to come.
