Ein einsamer Mann, der nach dem Unfall seines Partners beschließt, sich das Leben zu nehmen; zwei Cowboys, die einander ihre Liebe gestehen und sie doch geheim halten müssen; junge Männer, die ihre Gefühle füreinander im Tanz ausdrücken; coole Typen in Glitzerhöschen, die im christlichen Männerwohnheim Turnübungen vollführen und dabei eine Schwulenhymne singen ... All diese Augenblicke haben eines gemeinsam: Sie sind besondere Gänsehautmomente in Filmen und Serien. Paul Senftenberg präsentiert die für ihn stärksten, schönsten, emotionalsten, aber auch tragischsten Momente aus über 80 filmischen Werken. In einer Sammlung von Essays greift er Klassiker wie ´´Brokeback Mountain´´, ´´Milk´´ und ´´A Single Man´´ auf, scheut sich aber nicht, auch unbekanntere filmische Perlen vorzustellen. Durch einen persönlichen Zugang zeigt er neue Blickwinkel auf und erstellt verständliche Analysen, die zuweilen mit entlarvender Ironie versehen sind. Dabei verfasst er keine Best-of-Liste filmischer Werke, sondern vielmehr eine Hommage an die stärksten Gänsehautmomente des schwulen Films. Mit ´´Gay Movie Moments´´ werden magische Momente der Filmgeschichte in den Köpfen der LeserInnen wieder lebendig.

The Sixties ended a year late - on New Year´s Eve 1970, when Paul McCartney initiated proceedings to wind up The Beatles. Music would never be the same again. The next day would see the dawning of a new era. 1971 saw the release of more monumental albums than any year before or since and the establishment of a pantheon of stars to dominate the next forty years - Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Marvin Gaye, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Rod Stewart, the solo Beatles and more. January that year fired the gun on an unrepeatable surge of creativity, technological innovation, blissful ignorance, naked ambition and outrageous good fortune. By December rock had exploded into the mainstream. How did it happen? This book tells you how. It´s the story of 1971, rock´s golden year.

The Gay Science (The Joyful Wisdom) is one of Nietzsche´s greatest books. His wonderfully fertile mind roams over mankind, his thoughts, his emotions, his behaviour and his weaknesses with remarkable clarity, with insight - but also with humour! In this work are 383 separate paragraphs, some short, some long, but all singular observations - the epitome of his famous aphoristic style. ´Morality is the herd instinct in the individual.´ ´The world is overfull of beautiful things, but it is nevertheless poor, very poor, in beautiful moments.´ Being intellectual, he declares, is not equivalent to ´taking things seriously´: why not laugh while thinking! When should one be an Epicurean and when a Stoic? Nietzsche may be best known for Thus Spoke Zarathustra (The Gay Science was published in 1882, a year before Zarathustra, and actually contains its opening paragraph!) but with its potpourri of comments, some wild, some sharp, some rather odd, it is totally different in tone. The Gay Science represents the Friedrich Nietzsche one would want to meet. All of the 77 poems included by Nietzsche in The Gay Science have been placed at the end of the main text, to be enjoyed by dedicated Nietzscheans. The aphorisms and poems are persuasively read by Michael Lunts. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Lunts. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/dhrm/000026/bk_dhrm_000026_sample.mp3.

Dear Cary meets Confessions of a Video Vixen in this searing memoir of drugs, sex, and old school R&B from the wife of legendary soul icon Marvin Gaye. On her 17th birthday in 1973, Janice Hunter met Marvin Gaye - the soulful prince of Motown with the seductive liquid voice whose chart-topping, socially conscious album What´s Going On made him a superstar two years earlier. Despite a 16-year-age difference and Marvin´s marriage to the sister of Berry Gordy, Motown´s founder, the star-struck teenager and the emotionally volatile singer began a scorching relationship. One moment Jan was studying high school history; the next she was accompanying Marvin to parties with other pop stars, lounging with Don Cornelius on the set of Soul Train, and helping to discover new talent like Frankie Beverly. But the distractions and burdens of fame, the chaos of dysfunctional families, and the irresistible temptations of drugs overshadowed the love they shared and their marriage disintegrated. Silent since Marvin´s tragic death in 1984, Jan at last opens up, sharing the moving, erotically charged story of one of music history´s most fabled marriages. Unsparing in its honesty and insight, After the Dance reveals what it´s like to ride shotgun on a wave of fame and self-destruction with a tortured genius who helped transform popular culture and whose artistry continues to be celebrated today. 1.

It´s the hot topic of the moment. Christians, the church, and the Bible seem to be out of step with modern attitudes towards homosexuality. And there is growing hostility towards those who hold a different view. So is God homophobic? And what do we say, and how do we relate to to both Christians and non-Christians who experience same-sex attraction. In this short, simple book, Sam Allberry wants to help confused Christians understand what God has said about these questions in the scriptures, and offers a positive and liberating way forward through the debate. 1.
