All 20 episodes from the sixth and final series of the hit comedy drama series set in New York. In 'To Market, To Market', Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) is getting so nervous about her date with Berger (Ron Livingston) that she decides to go on a Sim-u-date to calm her nerves. 'Great Sexpectations' sees Carrie realising that the passion she and Berger feel for each other doesn't translate to the bedroom. In 'The Perfect Present', Carrie is concerned by Berger's hostile reaction to his ex-girlfriend's voicemail message. In 'Pick-a-Little, Talk-a-Little', Berger reacts badly to Carrie's jokey criticism of his new novel. In 'Lights, Camera, Relationship', Carrie and Berger's relationship starts to look even more fragile when Carrie gets a big advance for her book just as Berger's option is dropped by his publisher. In 'Hop, Skip and a Week', Berger and Carrie drift even further apart and he finally dumps her - by Post-it note. In 'The Post-it Always Sticks Twice', Carrie vows to her friends that she won't badmouth Berger - but when she runs into some friends of his the temptation proves irresistible. In 'The Catch', Charlotte (Kristin Davis) gets married to Harry (Evan Handler). 'A Woman's Right to Shoes' finds Carrie's new Manolos being stolen at her friend's baby shower. In 'Boy, Interrupted', Carrie runs into an old high school boyfriend, who is in town to attend a local psychiatric facility. 'The Domino Effect' sees Big (Chris Noth) back in town for an operation. In a feverish delirium he opens up to Carrie - but on recovery becomes his usual cool and closed-off self. In 'One', Carrie meets Aleksandr Petrovsky (Mikhail Baryshnikov) at a hot new art exhibition. In 'Let There Be Light', Carrie stays over at Aleksandr's apartment and the two become an official item. In 'Catch-38', Aleksandr tells Carrie that he has a daughter in Paris, and that he doesn't want any more children - leaving Carrie to wonder if, at 38, she's willing to give up a man for a baby she may or may not want to have. 'Out of the Frying Pan' sees Carrie walking out on Aleksandr when, during a conversation about Samantha's (Kim Cattrell) breast cancer, he mentions a friend of his who died of the illness. In 'The Cold War', Carrie arranges for her friends to meet Aleksandr, but he doesn't show up, and it turns out he's anxious about his forthcoming exhibition in Paris. In 'Splat', Carrie accepts Aleksandr's offer to accompany him to Paris. In 'An American Girl in Paris (Part Une)', Carrie, left to her own devices on the streets of Paris while Aleksandr prepares for his exhibition, is missing her friends and her life back home. In the final episode, 'An American Girl in Paris (Part Deux)', Carrie returns to New York and her friends with Big after he tracks her down in Paris and they realise they are meant to be together.

Unless you lived through the 1970s, it seems impossible to understand it at all. Drug delirium, groovy fashion, religious cults, mega corporations, glitzy glam, hard rock, global unrest-from our 2018 perspective, the seventies are often remembered as a bizarre blur of bohemianism and disco. With Pick Up the Pieces, John Corbett transports us back in time to this thrillingly tumultuous era through a playful exploration of its music. Song by song, album by album, he draws our imaginations back into one of the wildest decades in history. Rock. Disco. Pop. Soul. Jazz. Folk. Funk. The music scene of the 1970s was as varied as it was exhilarating, but the decade's diversity of sound has never been captured in one book before now. Pick Up the Pieces gives a panoramic view of the era's music and culture through seventy-eight essays that allow readers to dip in and out of the decade at random or immerse themselves completely in Corbett's chronological journey. An inviting mix of skilled music criticism and cultural observation, Pick Up the Pieces is also a coming-of-age story, tracking the author's absorption in music as he grows from age seven to seventeen. Along with entertaining personal observations and stories, Corbett includes little-known insights on musicians from Pink Floyd, Joni Mitchell, James Brown, and Fleetwood Mac to the Residents, Devo, Gal Costa, and Julius Hemphill. A master DJ on the page, Corbett takes us through the curated playlist that is Pick Up the Pieces with captivating melody of language and powerful enthusiasm for the era. This funny, energetic book will have readers longing nostalgically for a decade long past.

Listener's Guide to Free Improvisation (Paperback): John Corbett Listener's Guide to Free Improvisation (Paperback)
John Corbett
R328 Discovery Miles 3 280 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Improvisation rattles some listeners. Maybe they're even suspicious of it. John Coltrane's saxophonic flights of fancy, Jimi Hendrix's feedback drenched guitar solos, Ravi Shankar's sitar extrapolations--all these sounds seem like so much noodling or jamming, indulgent self-expression. "Just" improvising, as is sometimes said. For these music fans, it seems natural that music is meant to be composed. In the first book of its kind, John Corbett's A Listener's Guide to Free Improvisation provides a how-to manual for the most extreme example of spontaneous improvising: music with no pre-planned material at all. Drawing on over three decades of writing about, presenting, playing, teaching, and studying freely improvised music, Corbett offers an enriching set of tools that show any curious listener how to really listen, and he encourages them to enjoy the human impulse-- found all around the world-- to make up music on the spot. Corbett equips his reader for a journey into a difficult musical landscape, where there is no steady beat, no pre-ordained format, no overarching melodic or harmonic framework, and where tones can ring with the sharpest of burrs. In "Fundamentals," he explores key areas of interest, such as how the musicians interact, the malleability of time, overcoming impatience, and watching out for changes and transitions; he grounds these observations in concrete listening exercises, a veritable training regime for musical attentiveness. Then he takes readers deeper in "Advanced Techniques," plumbing the philosophical conundrums at the heart of free improvisation, including topics such as the influence of the audience and the counterintuitive challenge of listening while asleep. Scattered throughout are helpful and accessible lists of essential resources--recordings, books, videos-- and a registry of major practicing free improvisors from Noel Akchote to John Zorn, particularly essential because this music is best experienced live. The result is a concise, humorous, and inspiring guide, a unique book that will help transform one of the world's most notoriously unapproachable artforms into a rewarding and enjoyable experience.

The definitive monograph of Oehlen's work to dateOften wryly funny and just as smart, Albert Oehlen's paintings play the medium for all it's worth--and then some. After realizing that the so-called death of painting freed him to explore "the number of aspects through which one could expand painting," Oehlen started work on a wide variety of figurative and non-objective offerings, in what he has called his "post-non-figurative" art. The artist continuously challenges himself, setting up rules that force him to overcome convention and his own routine in order to arrive at a satisfying image. During his career he has chosen to paint in primary colors only or in gray, to integrate mirrors into his canvases, or to start on computer paintings when the first PCs became available. In his most recent work Oehlen expands painting through the use of advertising posters whose in-your-face aesthetics he transforms with subtle brushwork. Never without a touch of tongue-in-cheek humor, his work seems to be winking at us as it dares us to change the way we perceive an image.
This XL monograph covers the entire scope of Oehlen's oeuvre: Roberto Ohrt discusses the early years, when Oehlen came into his own alongside Kippenberger, Buttner, and others, part of a scene that broke rules in art and rock music. Klaus Kertess examines the years from 1988 onwards, when Oehlen saw himself more self-consciously as a painter and started his first abstract works, then continued to probe the limits of the medium. Martin Prinzhorn and John Corbett take a close look at aspects of Oehlen's iconography, and Oehlen discusses his computer paintings in a conversation with Corbett. An exhaustive biography and bibliography round out this comprehensive study. While Oehlen fans will rejoice at the publication of this breathtaking book, no one with an interest in contemporary art should pass up this unique opportunity to discover Oehlen's remarkable body of work.
Following on from the Collector's and Art Edition, this is the trade hardcover edition.

People have been writing in Scots for over 700 years, but the spelling of Scots has never been fixed, with many words, like buik, buke, book, appearing in a variety of forms. Drawing on the Corpus of Modern Scottish Writing, this volume provides a comprehensive survey of the spelling system of Older and Modern Scots, illustrating how this orthographic system has developed partly in response to historical shifts in pronunciation, and partly as a result of social and political change. Spelling Scots acts not only as a wide-ranging reference book to the changing orthography of Scots, but also as an outline of the active interventions in the practices that have guided Scots spelling. The book shows how canonical writers of poetry and fiction in Scots from 1700 to the present day have blended convention and innovation in presenting Scots in literary texts, and it explores the influence of key writers such as Ramsay, Fergusson, Burns, Scott, Hogg and Stevenson. Introducing an innovative method of tracing the use of key spelling variants in a corpus of Scots writing, the book discusses the implication of this method for promoting wider literacy in Scots. This volume should be a standard reference volume in libraries of institutions where literature in Scots is studied. It offers a detailed survey of why literature in Scots exhibits such a broad range of variant spellings.
