Gotta Get Theroux This (eBook, ePUB)
8,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From much-loved documentary maker Louis Theroux comes a funny, heartfelt and entertaining account of his life and weird times in TV. In 1994 fledgling journalist Louis Theroux was given a one-off gig on Michael Moore´s TV Nation , presenting a segment on apocalyptic religious sects. Gawky, socially awkward and totally unqualified, his first reaction to this exciting opportunity was panic. But he´d always been drawn to off-beat characters, so maybe his enthusiasm would carry the day. Or, you know, maybe it wouldn´t . . . In Gotta Get Theroux This , Louis takes the reader on a joyous journey from his anxiety-prone childhood to his unexpectedly successful career. Nervously accepting the BBC´s offer of his own series, he went on to create an award-winning documentary style that has seen him immersed in the weird worlds of paranoid US militias and secretive pro-wrestlers, get under the skin of celebrities like Max Clifford and Chris Eubank and tackle gang culture in San Quentin prison, all the time wondering whether the same qualities that make him good at documentaries might also make him bad at life. As Louis woos his beautiful wife Nancy and learns how to be a father, he also dares to take on the powerful Church of Scientology. Just as challenging is the revelation that one of his old subjects, Jimmy Savile, was a secret sexual predator, prompting him to question our understanding of how evil takes place. Filled with wry observation and self-deprecating humour, this is Louis at his most insightful and honest best.

Friday Black
9,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

An excitement and a wonder´ George Saunders ´The fiction debut of the year. Bravo young man. We await your encore´ Mary Karr ´The writing in this outstanding collection will make you hurt and demand your hope´ Roxane Gay Racism, but ´´managed´´ through virtual reality. Black Friday, except you die in a bargain-crazed throng. Happiness, but pharmacological. Love, despite everything. Friday Black tackles urgent instances of racism and cultural unrest, and explores the many ways we fight for humanity in an unforgiving world. In the first, unforgettable story of this collection, The Finkelstein Five, Adjei-Brenyah gives us an unstinting reckoning of the brutal prejudice of the US justice system. In Zimmer Land we see a far-too-easy-to-believe imagining of racism as sport. And Friday Black and How to Sell a Jacket as Told by Ice King show the horrors of consumerism and the toll it takes on us all. Fresh, exciting, vital and contemporary, Friday Black will appeal to people who love Colson Whitehead´s Underground Railroad, the TV show Black Mirror, the work of Kurt Vonnegut and George Saunders, and anyone looking for stories that speak to the world we live in now.

Micro Arts History 1984-85 Computer Generated A...
4,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In this exciting and colourful book, find out about the origins of modern computer art and graphics, including AI text generation done the old way. ´´Micro Arts has produced some stunningly original work.´´ Personal Computer World 1985. A lot of new digital technology arrived in the 1980s, including microcomputers or micros, cheap personal computers for home use. ´´I think this period is something of a lost era in digital art. It´s definitely a good idea to be engaging with it. ´´ Sean Clark, Computer Arts Society, Fellow BCS 2019 Complete with many colour images from the genrated art and animations, scans of the complete print magazine, and examples of generated stories from the text program. Micro Arts released many computer art compilations on cassettes, with generative abstract art, story text generators (´Cow Boils Head´), SCUM Manifesto feminist animation (Valerie Solanas), Duchamp animations, slow art and math/data art. All of the art programs, and many articles from the Micro Arts print magazine, were placed on Prestel teletext in 1985, so the software could be downloaded nationally from a TV set. ´´The alternative society is still throbbing at Micro Arts.´´ Sinclair User 1985. Micro Arts artists also created video titles for clubs like Manchester´s Hacienda, Sheffield´s Leadmill, and Network21, the infamous late night pirate TV channel featuring icons like Leigh Bowery, Body Map and the London alternative fashion scene. A mix of art, new technology, the club scene, and education, Micro Arts was an exciting part of the computer democratisation of the 1980s. This illustrated book is an illuminating and informative look into the 1980s micro computer scene, with the arrival of the all-new Sinclair ZX Spectrum, BBC Micro, Apple Macintosh, the IBM PC, alongside a gaudy and extrovert visual culture. The book has images from the unique art programs and a detailed history of Micro Arts, a full copy of the first and only edition of the print magazine, and contemporary reviews and context. There is also a gallery of stills from the many generative computer art programs. ´´Inspiring. All worth thinking about and testing for yourself.´´ A&B Computing 1985.
