More Info Modeling Life: Art Models Speak about Nudity, Sexuality, and the Creative Process
by Sarah R. Phillips

A fascinating consideration of the work of life models and the models’ own perspectives on their craft.

This is a book about life modeling. Unlike the painter whose name appears beside his finished portrait, the life model, posing nude, perhaps for months, goes unacknowledged. Standing at a unique juncture—between nude and naked, between high and low culture, between art and pornography—the life model is admired in a finished sculpture, but scorned for her or his posing. Making use of extensive interviews with both male and female models and quoting them frequently, Sarah R. Phillips gives...

More Info The Philosophy of the Coen Brothers (Philosophy Of Popular Culture)
by Mark T. Conard

In 2008 No Country for Old Men won the Academy Award for Best Picture, adding to the reputation of filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen, who were already known for pushing the boundaries of genre. They had already made films that redefined the gangster movie, the screwball comedy, the fable, and the film noir, among others. No Country is just one of many Coen brothers films to center on the struggles of complex characters to understand themselves and their places in the strange worlds they inhabit. To borrow a phrase from Barton Fink, all Coen films explore "the life of the mind" and show that...
More Info How to Improve Concentration and Focus: 10 Exercises and 10 Tips to Increase Concentration
by Vivian Sandau

If you’re looking to improve your concentration and focus, then this book is for you!

Most people today have the attention span and focus of a hyper-caffeinated squirrel chomping down on methamphetamines like tic tacs. We hop from unfinished project to unfinished project, flit around piled-up work by giving in to accessible diversions at the drop of a hat, and so on and so forth – until we're left with ever increasing piles of work and ignored responsibilities, and basically as much control over our minds as a junkie going through withdrawal. But instead of playing slave to our minds, we...

More Info The Bounty of the Sea: and the Perils she brings
by Andrew Weiner

As long as there have been records kept, there have been stories of the sea. Some of the stories have been good and are filled with happiness, others have shown the hard life that the men on the front lines of the fishing industry have and some are so heartbreaking if a man is lost at sea.

Growing up in Gloucester meant fishing and salt water was injected in your blood at birth. Some kids were born with a rod and reel, some were born with trawling nets, others with traps or deep sea rigs. It didn’t matter, you simply knew how to do it. You knew the difference between a jig and a #8 hook and...
