Product Description

Johnny Appleseed was an American folk hero. Sort of a legend, but he really did live in the American pioneer days. He traveled across the Midwest and with his younger brother Nathaniel, planted at least 100, 000 apple trees some of which are still living and are at least 200 years old.<br /><br />They wore ragged clothes without any shoes and both lived in poverty their entire lives. They believed in God and wanted to do what they felt God wanted them to do. That was to plant apple trees for the people of America.<br /><br />Both brothers were kind to all animals and they ate no meat or dairy products. In other words, they were vegans. In this play they meet an escaped slave and stayed with her as friends.Johnny never married and remained celibate all his life. They never owned a home of their own. They enjoyed hardships. In their beliefs, the more difficult their life here on earth was, the easier would be their journey to heaven after they died.

How to play? The company is going, everyone draws on the map and read aloud what awaits them. Everyone laughs. You can play alone. In the morning, you pull out a map and read what you will get today. This type of playful horoscope in verse. No relation to horoscopes in the usual sense, the game, of course, does not. There is nothing like this in the world. At least, I have not met. The name of the game «Predskazayka» also came up by himself. What will happen to you today, today?

Planet Nibiru, known to the ancient Sumerians and spoken about in their writings on stone tablets thousands of years ago has returned from its long orbit around the sun. This time, the inhabitants of Nibiru, the Annunaki, a race of huge winged gargoyles, plan on reaping that which they sowed on their last passing. Twelve-thousand-years ago, the Annunaki changed Humanity, evolving them, enslaving them. They bred with the female population, creating creatures similar to themselves, yet wingless. However, after a revolt, the Annunaki flooded the Earth, leaving behind their offspring who migrated underground and left Humanity to evolve to its present state. Now, the Annunaki have returned and with them is their desire to rule the Earth, enslave Humanity and harness their souls. <br />Jack Savage, a veteran NYPD officer, and long-time dabbler in Enochian Magick, a system of magick utilizing hierarchical angelic beings, is contacted by Enav, a commander of the good angels, who cryptically tells him of an impending apocalypse. <br />The Annunaki begin their invasion by launching global electromagnetic pulse nuclear bombs followed by thousands of rectangular ships landing in and around New York City. With erratic-dimensional movement, they coalesce and form a great wall around the metropolis and build a central tower. The Annunaki emerge from the ships to begin their vicious rule. <br />As New York City is brought to its knees, Savage flees into the subway system where he sees the dire consequence of being ruled by the Annunaki and their children. Freeing captives awaiting death, Savage is propelled to taste the blood of the Nephilim, evolving him into a being with talents similar to that of Earth's new masters. That is, the ability to separate his soul-body or astral body from his physical body at will and move through interdimensional space. As New York’s citizens are herded towards the central tower, and the souls of the deceased are confined within a glowing orb on top of the tower, Savage uses the ability to form a resistance. With Gilmore Boyle, his overweight cynical partner, and Ol’ Willie-be-Good, a crack-addicted Vietnam veteran, Jenny and Cindy-Lou, and a team of officers from the Emergency Service Unit of the NYPD, Savage defies Earth’s new overlords and the Nephilim. Savage calls upon the good Enochian Angels to wage war upon gargoyles. Yet, the gargoyles are not what they seem, for they are just pawns in a war of good against evil. It is soon discovered that the evil Enochian Angels have possessed the bodies of the gargoyles, granting them a vehicle to function and rule the physical world. The Annunaki’s intent is not to enslave Humanity, but rather to exterminate it, leaving evolution and genetic manipulation to create ever more powerful creatures for them to inhabit by way of a substance nicknamed, the Gray Ash. As it falls from the sky, its inherent interdimensional property causes the quick evolution of a host of foul creatures and insects with sentient like qualities. Savage, knowing the fate that awaits them will use any means necessary to defeat and prevent the harvest of Humanity.

For Singer/Songwriters, it's all about the live show. Everything else that you want in today's music business is dependent on you having a great live show - not just good or even very good - GREAT! <br /><br />This book is mainly addressed to the solo singer/songwriter because in these rough economic times in the music business, one of the best ways to make a living is to be a self-contained singer/songwriter who owns the melody, the lyrics, the voice, the song arrangement and the recording master.<br /><br />The only thing that has changed in the music business is the loss of the major income stream from record sales and the manner in which the audience is receiving and consuming recorded music. But as far as singer/songwriters and live performances are concerned, HOW TO ENTERTAIN AN AUDIENCE HAS NOT CHANGED. The audience still wants to be entertained no matter how well or badly the record business is doing.<br /><br />Caveat 1: The 101 WAYS are not guaranteed to make you a star, only to increase your chances of success; hence, the book’s title. <br />Caveat 2: This is not a “How To” book; this is a “What To Do” book. Each page states the direction to take. HOW you do them is up to you.<br />Caveat 3: None of these instructions by themselves will change your life or your career. However, the more of them you adhere to, the better.<br />Caveat 4: Although the Table of Contents topic headings in which these 101 WAYS are set up may seem random, they’re not. It’s pretty much arranged in a step-by-step manner to build upon what’s come before. <br />Caveat 5: It’s not about who has the most talent; it’s about who wants it more and will work harder to get it - the real secrets to success. <br />

Nowaytobeme è un percorso nella vita dell’autrice. Il titolo, che tradotto significa “non puoi essere me”, indica proprio la sua unicità, ma allo stesso tempo la complessità di essere come lei, che pur vivendo una vita normale e ripetitiva, cerca di distinguersi sempre e di realizzarsi.<br />La sua passione per la musica e la sua inaspettata maternità, nonché la grande delusione che le provoca il suo matrimonio fallito, la portano ad osservare le persone che la circondano con un occhio più critico e con un sarcasmo e un cinismo di difesa. <br />L’autrice descrive dei personaggi “tipo” che hanno fatto parte della sua vita, sia direttamente che indirettamente, come Gli Uomini di Merda e le Donne di Merda, che divide in sottocategorie a seconda delle loro peculiarità; ironicamente e in modo molto confidenziale, mette a nudo alcune caratteristiche della nostra società, che rendono difficile da sopportare le semplici giornate , criticando di fatto l’egoismo e l’ignoranza diffusa di fondo.<br />Un libro apparentemente frivolo, acido, che nasconde però l’insofferenza di una donna che vorrebbe fare di più, ma che non riesce a farsi strada; un libro in cui chiunque viva le sue giornate nella routine, si può rivedere. E’ un elogio alle persone semplici, alle esistenze semplici, che in realtà, sono proprio il motore del mondo e dei meccanismi che ci rendono sereni, tristi, insoddisfatti o esempi di successo e che nascondono tesori o tragedie per niente banali. E’ una spinta a vivere sé stessi al massimo delle potenzialità, a guardarsi intorno e a fare dell’empatia la propria ispirazione per migliorare ed essere felici.<br />Riconoscerete anche voi, tra chi vi circonda, alcuni dei personaggi presenti nel libro e troverete divertente associarli ad una categoria; ne riderete prendendo consapevolezza di come chi vi ruota intorno abbia un ruolo positivo o negativo nelle vostre vite, che pur essendo semplici, “normali”, si rivelano decisamente complesse e che vi rendono in un certo senso gli eroi di questi tempi bui.

<p>Translation and film adaptation of theatre have received little study. In filling that gap, this book draws on the experiences of theatrical translators and on movie versions of plays from various countries. It also offers insights into such concerns as the translation of bilingual plays and the choice between subtitling and dubbing of film.</p>
