*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?

Whoever 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.

These reviews appeared in the Village Voice between November 1998 and winter 2003. "Jerry Saltz is the best informed and hair-trigger liveliest of contemporary art critics, tracking pleasure and jump-starting intelligence on the fly. Jerry's fast takes usually stand up better in retrospect than other people's long views"---Peter Schjedahl. "Jerry Saltz looks at art from the perspective of the viewer, the ignorant, the lover, and the enemy. His writing is overwhelmingly passionate, yet without sentimentality. His words pierce the content and beauty of each work of art to test its endurance in time and memory"---Francesco Bonami, Curator, 2003 Venice Biennale.

From 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.

New York Times best-selling author Cornel West is one of America's most provocative and admired public intellectuals. Whether in the classroom, the streets, the prisons, or the church, Dr. West's penetrating brilliance has been a bright beacon shining through the darkness for decades. Yet, as he points out in this new memoir, ''I've never taken the time to focus on the inner dynamics of the dark precincts of my soul.That is, until now.Brother West is like its author: brilliant, unapologetic, full of passion yet cool. This poignant memoir traces West's transformation from a schoolyard Robin Hood into a progressive cultural icon. From his youthful investigation of the ''death shudder''to why he embraced his calling of teaching over preaching, from his three marriages and his two precious children to his near-fatal bout with prostate cancer, West illuminates what it means to live as ''an aspiring bluesman in a world of ideas and a jazzman in the life of the mind.''Woven together with the fibers of his lifelong commitment to the prophetic Christian tradition that began in Sacramento's Shiloh Baptist Church, Brother West is a tale of a man courageous enough to be fully human, living and loving out loud.

Jesus 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.

"Sixteenth-century clergyman Francis David said, 'There have always been many opinions about faith and salvation. You need not think alike to love alike.' At interfaith or secular gatherings, a widely diverse population needs to share a common language of love, respect, justice, peace, and hope. When our faith differences are acknowledged and supported, we are more likely to find ourselves united." - from the Introduction For interfaith gatherings, collection of nearly 80 prayers. Prayers are grouped for easy reference, including Ordinations and Installations; Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Events; Dedications; Unity and Diversity; Peace and Justice; Gratitude and Remembrance. Focus is on what people of all faiths can share Practical advice on prayer making is presented in 3 opening chapters on how to address the holy, creating sacred space with prayer, and how to close prayers. Though prayer itself is universal, many traditional prayers are not accessible to people of all faiths. Occasions of public prayer, often occurring at secular events, are most successful when they welcome all that are present. A fitting prayer must invoke a sense of the holy and provide a common ground of belonging for everyone. In this inspiring collection, Annie Foerster presents a wealth of useful guidance on crafting universal prayers, along with an abundant sampling of beautiful prayers of all kinds, for adaptation or for use as they are. Beneficial for clergy, lay ministers, anyone participating in interfaith worship and readers who want to write prayers of their own.
