Volume 3 Sensual <br /><br /> The human mind is a complex body part, that can outpace many computers as its sorts out some rational behind what the receptors in the eyes relay.<br /><br /> An old adage suggests that a picture is worth a thousand word. This copy of Sensual from Arthur Weis is far more suggestive than a million words or so. Some of the images within this volume will transport you, almost the very section you glimpse at them. <br /><br />Your journey from there, is influenced by a sheer multitude of factors as you are transported far beyond the mere dimension of the black and white image. Your brain will add to the image, perhaps color, and other sensory facts. There is a large possibility that parts of the image will also dance through your dreams over the next few nights

<DIV>Believe it or not, Aggieland has witnessed a parade of musical icons over the years, each with an intriguing story attached. Picture a young Elvis Presley entertaining the Corps of Cadets at G. Rollie White Coliseum. Flash forward to the “Committee for Johnny Cash,” originated by students after the country singer’s post-Bonfire concert was canceled by the A&M administration amid controversy; despite official disapproval, the students brought him to perform off-campus.<BR /><BR /> Revisit the sunbaked Texas World Speedway in the summer of 1974 and Willie Nelson’s rowdy Fourth of July Picnic, complete with sex, drugs, and a grassfire that torched the car of a young Robert Earl Keen (who would later strike up a long-lasting friendship with fellow A&M student Lyle Lovett).<BR /><BR /> Rewind to Garth Brooks landing at A&M to end an enormous 1998 world tour with three sold-out shows in the newly completed Reed Arena. And many other musical legends have produced memorable moments in the area, including Nat King Cole, R.E.M., and the Ramones.<BR /><BR /><I>Live from Aggieland</I> explores these stories, including photography and first-hand accounts of the shows and events. The book demonstrates how popular music has enhanced the cultural perspective of Bryan–College Station and has provided students, graduates, and residents with lasting musical memories.</DIV>

Was für ein Leben! Mit den Beatles hat er sich für alle Zeiten in der Musikgeschichte unsterblich gemacht und begeistert bis heute Millionen Fans. Bereits 50 Jahre ist es her, dass er erstmals 1960 in Hamburg auf der Bühne stand. Sir James Paul McCartney kann auf ein bewegtes Leben voller Erfolge, aber auch auf Tragödien und Niederlagen zurückblicken. Der englische Musiker, Singer-Songwriter, Maler und Komponist wurde weltweit bekannt als Sänger und Bassist der Beatles, für die er neben John Lennon die meisten Stücke schrieb. Lennon/McCartney gilt als das erfolgreichste Komponisten-Duo in der Geschichte der Popmusik. <br /><br />Nach dem Ende der Beatles startete McCartney eine erfolgreiche Solokarriere und gründete mit seiner Ehefrau Linda die Wings. Seit den 1980er Jahren arbeitet er ausschließlich als Solokünstler. McCartney gilt heut als der erfolgreichste lebende Pop-Komponist überhaupt, sein legendäres „Yesterday“ ist der meistgespielte Popsong aller Zeiten. <br /><br />McCartney lebt streng vegetarisch und engagiert sich in vielen Bereichen, auch für die Rechte von Tieren. Seine gesamte Lebensgeschichte wird in diesem Buch hautnah sehr lebendig erzählt. Ende 2009 trat Paul McCartney mit seiner Band im Rahmen seiner Welttournee auch in Deutschland auf. Für 2010 plante er eine fulminante Abschiedstournee. Die Auftritte sollten an Orten stattfinden, an denen der Ex-Beatle noch nie gespielt hat, etwa am Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin oder auf dem Platz des Himmlischen Friedens in Peking.

<p><b>Includes an exclusive EP as a companion to the book!</b></p><p>John Oates was born at the perfect time, paralleling the birth of rock ‘n roll. Raised in a small Pennsylvania town, he was exposed to folk, blues, soul, and R&B. Meeting and teaming up with Daryl Hall in the late 1960s, they developed a style of music that was uniquely their own but never abandoned their roots. John uncovers the grit and struggle it took to secure a recording contract with the legendary Atlantic Records and chronicles the artistic twists and turns that resulted in a DJ discovering an obscure album track that would become their first hit record. This is not your typical rock and roll story. John was focused creating great music. Along the way he achieved incredible success, battling the ever-changing pop music landscape and coming to terms with complex managerial, business, and personal challenges.</p><p>Daryl Hall and John Oates have over 20 albums together, more than 60 million records sold, and 29 Top 40 hits. They are the most successful pop duo in the world and members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And yet John’s story has never been told. Relying on his many hand-written journals, he brings to light many fascinating stories spanning his entire life with a journalist’s eye and a poet’s heart.</p><p>In <i>Change of Seasons,</i> John shares his highs, lows, triumphs, and failures. He takes the reader on a wild ride through all the eras, personalities and music that has shaped him into what he is.</p>

A down-and-out musician chops off his hair to become a server at the top of the Hollywood food chain, discovering a cloistered world of money, fame, bad behavior and intrigue.<br /><br />Waiter to the Rich and Shameless is not just a peek into the secretive inner workings of a legendary 5-star restaurant; it is not just a celebrity tell-all or a scathing corporate analysis. It is a top-tier waiter's personal coming-of-age story, an intimate look into the complicated challenges of serving in the country's most elite, Hollywood-centric dining room while fighting to maintain a sense of self and purpose.<br /><br />Of the many millions of food service workers around the globe, only a tiny number ever ascend to a top-level position at a world-renowned restaurant catering to iconic celebrities, moguls and politicians. As one of those select few, Paul ("Pauli") Hartford is the first waiter to open the door into a cloistered, coveted world of money, fame, bad behavior and intrigue. He peels back the veneer of civility and culture at the nation's most preeminent celebrity hangout, the Cricket Room, in Beverly Hills, California. He exposes the epic human foibles of its elite clientele, the dining room's corrupt corporate culture, its clandestine culinary practices, and the heartbreaking struggles of its beleaguered waitstaff.<br /><br /><br />This keenly-observed story also traverses Pauli's ten-year evolution from a jaded, party-hungry rock musician who moonlights as a bartender, into a snobbish and pretentious waiter, and finally into a polished and sophisticated server who takes his job so seriously that it drives him to the brink of illness. Pauli finds himself at first seduced by his famous guests' glamour and self-indulgence, then accustomed to it, and finally appalled by it.<br /><br /><br /><br />For obvious reasons, some details and specifics about the real Cricket Room have been cleverly disguised, but discerning readers will easily connect the dots.<br />
