From the internationally best-selling author of Love Her Wild comes The Dark Between Stars, a new collection of heartfelt, whimsical, and romantic poems from Instagram poetry sensation, Atticus.  Atticus has captured the hearts and minds of nearly 700k followers (including stars like Karlie Kloss, Emma Roberts, and Alicia Keys). In his second collection of poetry, The Dark Between Stars, he turns his attention to the dualities of our lived experiences - the inescapable connections between our highest highs and lowest lows. He captures the infectious energy of starting a relationship, the tumultuous realities of commitment, and the agonizing nostalgia of being alone again. While grappling with the question of how to live with purpose and find meaning in the journey, these poems offer both honest explorations of loneliness and our search for connection, as well as light-hearted, humorous observations. As Atticus writes poignantly about dancing, Paris, jazz clubs, sunsets, sharing a bottle of wine on the river, rainy days, creating, and destroying, he illustrates that we need moments of both beauty and pain - the darkness and the stars - to fully appreciate all that life and love have to offer. 1.

Anyone Who Had a Heart: My Life and Music , Hör...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

One of the greatest songwriters of all time offers a frank and riveting account of his life and the stories behind the hits. Over the past six decades, Burt Bacharach's legendary songwriting has touched millions of devoted listeners all over the world. In Anyone Who Had a Heart, Bacharach steps out from behind the music to give an honest, engaging look at his life - from his work with Hal David, Dionne Warwick, Elvis Costello, and many others to his tumultuous marriages and the devastating fate of his beloved daughter. Growing up in Forest Hills, New York, during the 1930s and '40s, Burt Bacharach fell in love with music after sneaking into a Manhattan jazz club to see the legendary Dizzy Gillespie. After a stint in the Army during the Korean War, he toured the world with Marlene Dietrich, wrote an endless string of hits, scored numerous Hollywood films, married the glamorous movie star Angie Dickinson, and composed the music for the huge Broadway hit Promises, Promises. While he soared professionally, Bacharach's private life was dominated by the never-ending search for love - and the heartbreak that comes when it is lost - which is reflected in his greatest songs. His first three marriages ended in divorce. His long-running partnership with the late Hal David suffered a bitter split that lasted seventeen years. Throughout the highs and lows, Bacharach steadfastly pursued his muse - a quest that continues to this day. Anyone Who Had a Heart is the story of a man who has always expressed his deepest feelings through his music. Filled with the emotional power that defines Burt Bacharach's most unforgettable songs, his memoir offers a candid backstage look at show business as well as the personal struggles of an artist whose incredible body of work has earned him a unique position in the American cultural landscape. 1.

Acid For The Children - The autobiography of Fl...
28,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

The iconic bassist and co-founder of the Red Hot Chili Peppers tells his fascinating origin story, complete with all the dizzying highs and the gutter lows you'd want from an LA street rat turned world-famous rock star. In Acid for the Children, Flea takes readers on a deeply personal tour of his formative years and deftly chronicles the experiences that forged him as an artist and a young man. His dreamy, jazz-inflected prose makes the Los Angeles of the 1970s and 80s come to gritty, glorious life, including its potential for fun, danger, mayhem, and inspiration. It is here that young Flea, looking to escape a turbulent home, found family in a community of musicians, artists, and junkies who also lived on the fringe. In music he found a higher meaning, a place to channel his frustration, loneliness, and love when he and his best friends, soul brothers, and partners-in-mischief came up with the idea to start their own band, the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Acid for the Children is the debut of a stunning new literary voice, whose prose is as witty, entertaining, and wildly unpredictable as the author himself. It's a tenderly evocative coming-of-age story and a raucous love letter to the power of music and creativity from one of the most renowned musicians of our time. Flea is an Australian-born American musician and occasional actor. He is best known as the bassist and co-founding member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and co-founder of The Silverlake Conservatory of Music.

Nerves in Patterns on a Screen
31,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Movies offer us images (and usually sounds) that 'thr[ow our] nerves in patterns on a screen' (Eliot). In other words, they express the neurological hyperactivity of modern subjects. Films are affect machines, in this respect. Each has its own heartbeat (narrative highs and lows), dramatic expansions and contractions (montage), and changing patterns and light (cinematography). Viewers engage with these affect machines viscerally, such that we are like Charlie Chaplin who dives into the machine in Modern Times. As we move through these affect machines we identify with some characters and empathize with others and, in the process, engage in something dynamic and experiential. When the credits roll and the lights go up, we find ourselves suddenly out of this affect machine and, in many cases, restored, rejuvinated, ready to face (and/or challenge) the world again. In its overdetermined status as a modern art form generated by modern technologies and focused on modern dilemmas (even if the narrative takes place in ancient times, the themes are translated in ways that engage modern viewers), cinema exists in a web-like, rhizomic relationship with modernity. Rhizomes are like converging root systems all tangled together. They are non-hierarchical but interrelated in 'random, unregulated networks in which any element may be connected with any other element' (Bogue 107). Films are, themselves, rhizomes of form and content. In addition, they are rhizomes that not only arise out of modernity but also interact with modernity and within individuals in extended web-like relationships. The following chapters looks at films that have made impacts both in the history of film and, more broadly, in historical events of the Twentieth Century. Each chapter explores the ways in which modernity (the socio-historical, economic, and cultural context of the films) intersects with film content (character, plot, and various mise-en-scène elements that are part of the film's narrative) and with cinematic form (camera angles, shot types, editing, lighting, sound, and other cinematic elements that are not part of the story itself) in web-like, rhizomic relationships. The chapters are organized diachronically, for the most part, following the evolution of cinematic form from 1895 to the present. At the same time, each chapter will consider the diachronic (across linear time) dynamic whereby films influenced their time and vice-versa. By looking at the way audience's own understanding of characters or events were (and continue to be) influenced by, for instance, German Expressionistic settings or Russian Formalist montage, we can learn a lot about how subjects were (and continue to be) 'directed' to see the world and to view themselves in it. By honing this ability to view films critically and consciously through a study of over 20 important films produced from 1895-2013, we can begin to identify the elements that have made film among the most powerful art forms of the 20th century. Table of Contents Introduction Chapter 1 Arts of Exposure: From Still Photography to Way Down East Chapter 2 German Expressionism and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari: Chapter 3 Irrational Exuberance and the American Dream in Post-WWI American Melodrama: The Kid and The Jazz Singer Chapter 4 Formalism and Surrealism: Exposing Cuts in Battleship Potemkin and Andalusian Dog Chapter 5 From Mass Hypnosis to Mass Genocide: Triumph of the Will and Night and Fog Chapter 6 Restorative Fictions and the Convulsive Realities They Obscure: Stagecoach and Dakota 38 Chapter 7 Deep Focus in a Hall of Mirrors: The Hollow Core of Citizen Kane Chapter 8 Double Vision: The Truth about Lies in Alfred Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt and Maya Deren's Meshes in the Afternoon Chapter 9 Melodrama and Modernism: Chapter 10 Mirrors and Masks in Cléo from 5-7 and Black Girl Chapter 11 (Mis)representations and (Re)presentations of Race in Crash and 12 Years a Slave
