Am 9. August ist es endlich so weit: Das heißersehnte dritte Album der White Lies wird veröffentlicht. ´´Eigentlich wollte die Band einen Horrorfilm drehen, herausgekommen ist aber ein Killeralbum,´´ titelte das NME Magazin kürzlich über die neue Musik der Londoner. Die ersten Details in aller Kürze: BIG TV wird ihr dritter Longplayer heißen, welcher von Ed Buller (u.a. Suede, The Courteeners) produziert und in Belgien aufgenommen wurde. Als erste Single wird There Goes Our Love Againvom neuen 12 Tracks umfassenden Longplayer veröffentlicht. Die Single besticht durch ihre klare Struktur, sphärische Klänge und eine gefühlsstarke Hook. Ihr Debütalbum To Lose My Life, das im Januar 2009 erschien, verkaufte sich weltweit über eine Million Mal und sorgte für den Durchbruch des Trios (#1 in UK). Es folgten ausverkaufte Tournee und Support-Auftritte für Coldplay und Kings of Leon sowie Longplayer Nr 2 Ritual (2011 - Top 10 in Deutschland).

Two of our greatest TV writers tackle the beast of American television to find the single greatest show ever made. While working at the Newark Star-Ledger, Matt and Alan created a popular column debating the merits of then-current television. They went to successful careers as critics but the debate raged on and now comes to an epic conclusion in TV (THE BOOK). Like Bill Simmons did in The Book of Basketball, Alan and Matt have established The Pantheon of top TV shows using a complex, obsessively all-encompassing ranking system by which to order and stack them up against each other. With a mix of lively entries on critically acclaimed and commercially successful classics such as Seinfeld, The Sopranos, Star Trek, The Simpsons and Twin Peaks and illuminating essays on short-lived favorites such as Taxi, Freaks and Geeks, and My So-Called Life, TV (THE BOOK) is sure to spark conversation and debate among readers. TV (THE BOOK) is a must-have for long-time television and film buffs and for young enthusiasts who, fresh off their latest Netflix binge, are looking to expand their knowledge of the medium and wondering what show to start streaming next.
Seit 2006 läuft ´´Germany´s Next Topmodel´´ im deutschen Fernsehen. Viele junge Mädchen fiebern Jahr für Jahr mit den Kandidatinnen mit. Kein Wunder: Sich vom Alltagseinerlei in die große weite Welt der Mode aufzumachen, im TV und auf dem Laufsteg von allen bewundert zu werden, ist für viele der große Traum. Jaqueline Thießen hat genau das erlebt. 2013 war sie Kandidatin der Staffe ´´Life Edition.´´ bei Germany´s Next Topmodel, schaffte es unter die Top 10 - und war heiß umstritten. Denn die bekennende Christin unterschied sich allzu deutlich von ihren Mitstreiterinnen: Statt zu zicken sucht sie Versöhnung. Statt zu jammern suchte sie pragmatische Lösungen. Und statt mit ihren 17 Jahren die jugendliche Verführerin zu geben, punktete sie mit mädchenhaftem Charme. Gespickt mit Tagebuchauszügen, Fotos, Motivationssprüchen, Reflexionsfragen, Gedichten und immer mit dem Blick auf Gott erzählt sie, was sie hinter den Kulissen von GNMT erlebt hat. Ihre Botschaft an alle jungen Leserinnen: ´´Du bist schön, so wie du bist! Gott hat dich wunderbar gemacht.´´ Kandidatin Jaqueline Thießen erzählt exklusiv, was sie hinter den Kulissen von GNTM erlebt hat und macht Mädchen und jungen Frauen Mut, zu sich selbst zu stehen!

SHORTLISTED FOR THE WILLIAM HILL SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR PRIZE. SHORTLISTED FOR THE JAMES TAIT BLACK BIOGRAPHY OF THE YEAR. THE BRITISH SPORTS BOOK AWARDS SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR. WINNER OF THE PEN/ESPN AWARD FOR LITERARY SPORTS WRITING. THE TIMES SPORTS BOOK AWARDS BIOGRAPHY OF THE YEAR. The most comprehensive and definitive biography of Muhammad Ali that has ever been published, based on more than 500 interviews with those who knew him best, with many dramatic new discoveries about his life and career. When the frail, trembling figure of Muhammad Ali lit the Olympic flame in Atlanta in 1996, a TV audience of up to 3 billion people was once again gripped by the story of the world´s most famous sporting icon. The man who had once been reviled for his refusal to fight for his country and for his fast-talking denunciation of his opponents was now almost universally adored, the true cost of his astonishing boxing career clear to see. In Jonathan Eig´s ground-breaking biography , backed up with much detailed new research specially commissioned for this book, we get a stunning portrait of one of the most significant personalities of the second half of the twentieth century. We are not only taken inside the ring for some of the most famous bouts in boxing history, we also learn about his personal life, his finances, his faith and the moments when the first signs of his physical decline began to show. Ali was a symbol of freedom and courage, a hero to many, but this is also a very personal story of a warrior who vanquished every opponent but was finally brought down by his own stubborn refusal to quit. An epic tale of a fighter who became the world´s most famous pacifist, Ali: A Life does full justice to an extraordinary man. ´ Ali: A Life is the business - 640 pages of patient scholarship and intelligent reassessment written in crackly prose´ Giles Smith, The Times ´[A] richly researched, sympathetic yet unsparing portrait ... Ali: A Life is an epic of a biography´ Joyce Carol Oates, New York Times
