Gene Summers Art Architecture from the Author: Werner Blaser. The first presentation of Gene Summers' architectural and artistic achievements. The teachings of Mies van der Rohe and his respect for the effects of space and material has had a great influence on the American architect and artist Gene Summers. Thanks to the technology of the day and Summers' own creative talents, he was able to help transform Mies' visions into built structures. For 16 years Gene Summers was a close colleague of Mies, heading his office and working with him on many projects including the Seagram Building in New York, Bacardi's office buildings in Cuba and Mexico, and Krupps' offices in Essen. Also working independently. Summers created projects for C.F Murphy Assoc. such as the McCormick Convention Centre and the Malcolm X College in Chicago. Later with Ridgway Ltd. he was responsible for the the acclaimed restoration of the Biltmore Hotels in Los Angeles and the Canada Business Center (Orange Country, Canada). Familiar with bronze as a building material, Summers used this knowledge to design elegant furniture and household objects before devoting himself entirely to this area of art. This volume is the first presentation of Gene Summers' architectural and artistic work, surveying the many areas which include wood and water colours where he was active. Phyllis Lambert, founder and architect of the Canadian Centre for Architecture, and President of the International Confederation of Architectural Museums, provides an enlightening introduction to his work.

Excerpt: "Blue Moon" is a classic popular song. It was written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1934, and has become a standard ballad. The song has been covered as a released single by artists such as Billie Holiday, Mel Torme, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan and Cliff Richard. In popular culture, the song has featured in musical films such as Grease and "Blue Moon" is sung by Crewe Alexandra fans, whilst also being regarded as the anthem of Manchester City Football Club. The lyrics presumably refer to an English idiomatic expression: "once in a blue moon" means "very rarely." (The origin of the expression is unclear; see article "blue moon"). The narrator of the song is relating a stroke of luck so unlikely that it must have taken place under a blue moon. The title relies on a play on words, since blue is also the colour of melancholy, and indeed the narrator is sad and lonely until he finds love. Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart were contracted to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in May 1933. They were soon commissioned to write the songs for Hollywood Party, a film that was to star many of the studio's top artists. Richard Rodgers later recalled, "One of our ideas was to include a scene in which Jean Harlow is shown as an innocent young girl saying-or rather singing-her prayers. How the sequence fitted into the movie I haven't the foggiest notion, but the purpose was to express Harlow's overwhelming ambition to become a movie star ('Oh Lord, if you're not busy up there, /I ask for help with a prayer/So please don't give me the air . . .')." The song was not even recorded and MGM Song #225 "Prayer (Oh Lord, make me a movie star)" dated June 14, 1933, was registered for copyright as an unpublished work on July 10, 1933. Lorenz Hart wrote new lyrics for the tune to create a title song for the 1934 film Manhattan Melodrama: "Act One: /You gulp your coffee and run;/Into the subway you crowd./Don't breathe, it isn't allowed." The song, which was also titled "It's Just That Kind of Play," was cu

Catch That Rockabilly Fever from the Author: Sheree Homer. Rockabilly, a musical designation coined by Billboard magazine in the mid–1950s, is a rambunctious rhythmic style combining the liveliest elements of country, gospel, and rhythm and blues. Popularized by such performers as Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and Ricky Nelson, rockabilly has been a major influence on the music of Bob Dylan, the Beatles and Bruce Springsteen (among many others). This book captures the essence of life on the road and in the recording studio through interviews with many of rockabilly’s foremost artists. Among those sharing their experiences are Jerry Allison and Sonny Curtis of the Crickets, Sonny Burgess, Wanda Jackson, Glen Glenn, the Collins Kids, Charlie Gracie and Deke Dickerson. Also included are several rare publicity photos.

People From Duncanville Texas from the Author: Source Wikipedia. Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 27. Chapters: Elliott Smith, Joe Greene, Chet Edwards, Greg Abbott, Gene Summers, Tim Urban, Tamika Catchings, Mike Bacsik, The Rebels, Luis Y ez, The Shelton Brothers, Perry Jones, Greg Ostertag, Jos Burciaga, Jr., Tim DeLaughter, Todd Ritchie, Chad Allen, Barry Foster, Jill Marie Jones, Keith Creel, Eric Hacker, Bob Muncrief, Richie Whitt, Brandon Fahey, Ray Crockett, Tiffany Jackson, Mychal Sisson, David Nied, Ricky A. Williams, Cliff Bartosh, Sterling Davis, Steve Gibralter. Excerpt: Steven Paul "Elliott" Smith (August 6, 1969 - October 21, 2003) was an Academy Award nominated American singer-songwriter and musician. Smith was born in Omaha, Nebraska, raised primarily in Texas, and resided for a significant portion of his life in Portland, Oregon, where he first gained popularity. His primary instrument was the guitar, but he was also proficient at piano, clarinet, bass guitar, drums, and harmonica. Smith had a distinctive vocal style characterized by his "whispery, spiderweb-thin delivery" and use of multi-tracking to create vocal layers, textures, and harmonies. After playing in the rock band Heatmiser for several years, Smith began his solo career in 1994 with releases on the independent record labels Cavity Search and Kill Rock Stars. In 1997 he signed a contract with DreamWorks Records, for which he recorded two albums. Smith rose to mainstream prominence when his song "Miss Misery"-included in the soundtrack for the film Good Will Hunting-was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Original Song category in 1998. Smith suffered from depression, alcoholism, and drug addiction, and these topics often appeared in his lyrics. At age 34, he died in Los Angeles, California from two stab wounds to the chest. The autopsy evidence was inconclusive as to whether the wounds were self-inflicted. At the time of his death, Smith was wor...

Mies Van Der Rohe from the Author: Franz Schulze. This comprehensive biography tells the compelling story of how Mies and his students and followers created some of the most significant buildings of the twentieth century. It traces Mies's European career in its progression to avant-garde modernism, where his work was materially rich but of modest scale, to his second maturity and world renown in the United States, where he invented a new architectural language of "objective" structural expression. Reveals new information about his relationships with women, and gives voice to dozens of architects who knew and worked with (and sometimes against) Mies-- many of them from the unique oral history collection of the Art Institute of Chicago's Department of Architecture.

National Parks And Rural Development from the Author: Gary E. Machlis. Protecting land in parks is often seen as coming at the expense of rural economic development. Yet recent events such as the contentious debate over the development of Canyon Forest Village on the south rim of the Grand Canyon suggest just the opposite: healthy natural systems can be enormously valuable to rural economies.National Parks and Rural Development offers a thorough examination of the interdependent roles of national parks and the economies of rural communities in the United States. Bringing together the thinking and views of economists, historians, sociologists, recreation researchers, and park managers, the book considers how those roles can be most effectively managed, as it offers: a wide-ranging review of history and important concepts in rural development and parks management five case studies of rural development near national parks that identify lessons learned, principles applied, mistakes committed, and advances made personal essays from leaders in the parks management field For each section, the editors offer introductory discussions that provide context and highlight key points. The editors also provide a detailed conclusion which summarizes policy implications and presents specific recommendations for improving rural development and park management policies.Case studies include: Cape Cod National Seashore, Alaskan parks and wilderness areas, Yellowstone National Park, the Grand Canyon, and three parks in the Pacific Northwest (Mt. Rainier, Olympic, and North Cascades).ational Parks and Rural Development is a unique synthesis and guide to solving conflicts between the needs of human communities and nature near federal lands. It will be an important work for agency personnel, nongovernmental organizations, and students and scholars of rural economic development, public policy, environmental economics, and related fields.
