Η εγγονή: Isländernes Lovbog I Fristatens Tid. Text I, Volume 1... (Quick, quick, slow – Η λέσχη χορού Lietzensee #1)

by Annemarie Nikolaus Χριστίνα Ντρέκου

Η Μαντελίν Λαγκράνζε, η εγγονή του προέδρου της «Λέσχης χορού Lietzensee» θεωρεί τον κοινωνικό χορό ως μια απλή πολιτισμική τεχνική, την οποία μαθαίνει χωρίς μεγάλη φιλοδοξία. Και τότε συναντά τους χορευτές Square Dance της λέσχης. Και η καρδιά της μαγεύεται όχι μόνο από τον χορό, αλλά και από τον Caller της ομάδας, τον αμερικάνο Κρις Ράινχαρτ. <P><P> Ο Κρις συναρπάζεται από την πρώτη στιγμή με την Μαντελίν. Εκείνος όμως είναι ο προπονητής της ομάδας κι εκείνη είναι ανήλικη. Γι΄αυτό αγωνίζεται ενάντια στην ολοένα αυξανόμενη στοργή που αισθάνεται για κείνη και απαρνιέται τα συναισθήματά του απέναντί της. <P><P> Ενώ η Μαντελίν με την αδιαλλαξία των δεκαεπτά της χρόνων προσπαθεί να αποπλανήσει τον Κρις, ο παππούς της κάνει ότι περνά από το χέρι του για να τον εξορίσει διά παντός από το σωματείο κι έτσι να απομακρύνει τον έναν από τον άλλο.

The 10 Cent Chocolate Tub

by Mike Mcgann

10 Cent Chocolate Tub will take you back to the 1950's and 1960s when life was uncomplicated. There were three channels to watch on a black and white television set showing Sid Caesar, Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, Howdy Doody, Milton Berle, fifteen minutes of Nat King Cole, The Lone Ranger and The Toast of The Town. Radio stations were AM only and played Elvis Presley, Doo-Wop music, Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, Patti Page, Chubby Checker and The Four Seasons, long before The Beatles came to America. The small things in life were exciting to a city boy who grew up to be a broadcaster, a Vietnam veteran, a minor performer and a dad! Everyone has family stories, crazy relatives, funny incidents, memories of how good things were back then and dreams of how they should be. The 10 Cent Chocolate Tub gets it's name from a huge chocolate ice cream cone sold by Bard's Dairy in the 1950s in Pittsburgh at a time when a young boy, who wore rummage sale clothes and ate surplus cheese, was only allowed a nickel vanilla ice cream now and then. This is about the quest for life's finer things like ice cream anytime you want it, playing the radio loudly, crying at a sad movie, falling in love, heartbreaks, kissing your children goodnight and loving every minute of it.

The $11 Billion Year

by Anne Thompson

"This chronicle of 2012 is a slice of what happened during a watershed year for the Hollywood movie industry. It's not the whole story, but it's a mosaic of what went on, and why, and of where things are heading."What changed in one Hollywood year to produce a record-breaking box office after two years of decline? How can the Sundance Festival influence a film's fate, as it did for Beasts of the Southern Wild and Searching for Sugar Man, which both went all the way to the Oscars? Why did John Carter misfire and The Hunger Games succeed? How did maneuvers at festivals such as South by Southwest (SXSW), Cannes, Telluride, Toronto, and New York and at conventions such as CinemaCon and Comic-Con benefit Amour, Django Unchained, Moonrise Kingdom, Silver Linings Playbook, Les Misérables, The Life of Pi, The Avengers, Lincoln, and Argo? What jeopardized Zero Dark Thirty's launch? What role does gender bias still play in the industry? What are the ten things that changed the 2012 Oscar race?When it comes to film, Anne Thompson, a seasoned reporter and critic, addresses these questions and more on her respected daily blog, Thompson on Hollywood. Each year, she observes the Hollywood machine at work: the indies at Sundance, the exhibitors' jockeying at CinemaCon, the international scene at Cannes, the summer tentpoles, the fall's "smart" films and festivals, the family-friendly and big films of the holiday season, and the glamour of the Oscars®. Inspired by William Goldman's classic book The Season, which examined the overall Broadway scene through a production-by-production analysis of one theatrical season, Thompson had long wanted to apply a similar lens to the movie business. When she chose 2012 as "the year" to track, she knew that box-office and DVD sales were declining, production costs were soaring, and the digital revolution was making big waves, but she had no idea that events would converge to bring radical structural movement, record-setting box-office revenues, and what she calls "sublime moviemaking."Though impossible to mention all 670-plus films released in 2012, Thompson includes many in this book, while focusing on the nine Best Picture nominees and the personalities and powers behind them. Reflecting on the year, Thompson concludes, "The best movies get made because filmmakers, financiers, champions, and a great many gifted creative people stubbornly ignore the obstacles. The question going forward is how adaptive these people are, and how flexible is the industry itself?"
