  • Born to Run af Bruce Springsteen E-bog Born to Run af Bruce Springsteen

    Bruce Springsteen fortæller ærligt om sin næsten 50 år lange karriere i en stærk selvbiografi, der udgives på den samme dag, 27. september, over hele verden. Den ikoniske sanger og musiker Bruce Springsteen har i al hemmelighed skrevet på sin selvbiografi de seneste syv år. Han begyndte at arbejde på den i 2009 efter at have optrådt med The E Street Band til Super Bowl.I Born to Run beskriver han sin opvækst i Freehold i New Jersey imellem ”poesi, fare og mørke”, som det, der har næret hans fantasi. Han fortæller levende om sit stædige behov for at blive musiker – fra hans tidlige dage , hvor han var kongen over alle barmusikere i Asbury Park til dannelsen af The E Street Band. Med hudløs ærlighed taler han også for første gang åbent om de personlige kampe, der har inspireret ham til at skrive sine bedste sange og afslører, hvorfor sangen Born to Run har langt dybere selvbiografiske lag, end man tror. ”Det er noget underligt noget at skrive om sig selv”, skriver Bruce Springsteen i bogen.”Men i et projekt som dette har forfatteren givet læseren et løfte om at vise, hvem han virkelig er. Det løfte har jeg forsøgt at leve op til i denne bog”. Og det er ikke bare tomme ord, at han her viser sig, som han er. Born to Run er en sjældent ærlig og indsigtsfuld selvbiografi, hvor Bruce Springsteen ikke bare tager læseren med gennem sin ikoniske musikalske karriere, der strækker sig over næsten 50 år. Men også gennem en personlig historie fyldt med den form for kærlighed og svigt, tillid og usikkerhed, kampe og succes, som alle kan spejle sig i.

  • Dansk i skred af Jørn Lund E-bog Dansk i skred af Jørn Lund

    Smartphone og app er eksempler på ”ikke-danske” ord, der er blevet en selvfølgelig del af det danske sprog. Samtidig forsvinder andre ord. Næsten ingen yngre mennesker ved, hvad en bødker laver, hvad en nefalygte er for noget, eller hvad en gylp skal gøre godt for. Hvem husker de stille piger? Og hvad vil det sige at være bjergsom eller undseelig? Ord og vendinger kommer og går. En gang vidste de fleste, hvem cirkusministeren var, men nu er forestillingen slut. Til gengæld kan man drikke sig i hegnet, hvis man da ikke er arbejdsramt. Betydninger ændrer sig. Hvem husker fluesmækkeren som betalingsmiddel? Ændringer af udtalen kan skabe afstand mellem generationerne; der har nærmest rejst sig et oprør mod de yngre skuespilleres hængemuledansk. Det er lidt awweligt.Medierne er ved at afskaffe samtaler til fordel for forudsigelige verbale hanekampe, og mange pædagoger forskanser sig bag stadig skiftende modeudtryk; snart har de deres læringsrum helt for sig selv!I Dansk i skred fører Jørn Lund muntert og skarpsindigt sine læsere gennem mange forskellige sproglige landskaber, fra Karen Blixens Afrika til magtens korridorer, fra erhvervslivets bonede gulve til krejlernes kræmmermarkeder og atleternes arenaer. Sproget spejler samfundsudviklingen på godt og ondt. Velkommen til 52 lystrejser i selskab med en kyndig guide.

  • Otto Leisner - Et liv i H.O.P.L.A. af Henrik Vesterberg E-bog Otto Leisner - Et liv i H.O.P.L.A. af Henrik Vesterberg

    Humør, Oplysning, Populær musik, Livsglæde og Aktivitet - "H. O. P. L. A." - hed et af Otto Leisners mest elskede tv-programmer. De fem ingredienser var lige efter Leisners hoved og de grundlæggende værdier, han styrede efter gennem hele sit 91 år lange liv. I mere end 40 år var Otto Leisner indbegrebet af uforpligtende og begavet underholdning for hele familien. "Pladeparade", "Krobal", "Den Gyldne Pil", "Fup eller Fakta" og "Kvit eller Dobbelt". Otto Leisners programmer samlede i årevis danskerne foran skærmene i antal, man i dag kun ser til de helt store sportsbegivenheder.I denne bog fortæller Henrik Vesterberg historien om den musik- og teater-begejstrede amagerdreng, der voksede op i beskedne kår og ad snirklede veje fandt sin helt egen plads inden for de gryende elektroniske massemedier.I radioen i 1940'erne og 1950'erne og på tv helt frem til 1980'erne udførte Danmarks første og største tv-stjerne et stort pionerarbejde, der nok sikrede ham popularitet, men ikke var fri for omkostninger. I lange perioder var Otto Leisner lige så forkætret og hadet af kultureliten, som han var elsket og afholdt af den brede befolkning.Historien om Otto Leisner er samtidig fortællingen om underholdningens historie i Danmark fra 1930'erne til opgøret med Danmarks Radios monopol i 1980'erne.

  • Manden, der ville reparere verden med musik af Daniel Øhstrøm Spar 11% E-bog Manden, der ville reparere verden med musik af Daniel Øhstrøm

    Henrik Goldschmidt kunne roligt hvile på laurbærrene: Han er en internationalt anerkendt musiker og har optrådt på de største scener i verden. I begyndelsen af 1990'erne satte den igangværende flygtningekrise imidlertid tanker i gang. Da Goldschmidt på et tidspunkt boede i Israel, blev han konfronteret med palæstinensernes skæbne bag hegn på vestbredden. Ideen om at etablere et mellemøstligt fredsorkester, Middle East Peace Orchestra, der bringer jødiske, muslimske og kristne musikere sammen, opstod. I 2010 lykkedes det at åbne en københavnsk musikskole, Goldschmidts Musikakademi, hvor børn med forskellige etniske, religiøse og sociale baggrunde kan mødes om at synge og spille. Siden er der åbnet afdelinger i Aalborg og på Udrejsecenter Sjælsmark. For intet kan som musik nedbryde skel mellem mennesker."Manden, der ville reparere verden med musik" er både en personlig beretning om at finde vej gennem livet med et talent, der forpligter, og en familiehistorie om at overleve pogromer og flugt uden at give slip på sin identitet og kultur. Verden kan måske ikke repareres, men har brug for en smule håb og musik.Henrik Goldschmidt (født 1959) er oboist, ansat i Det Kongelige Kapel og initiativtager til Middle East Peace Orchestra samt Goldschmidts Musikakademi. Han har fortalt sin historie til Daniel Øhrstrøm (født 1979), som er forfatter og journalist ved Kristeligt Dagblad.

  • Sfærernes harmoni af Hans Buhl E-bog Sfærernes harmoni af Hans Buhl

    For de fleste moderne mennesker har fysik og musik meget lidt med hinanden at gøre. Fysik opleves af mange som svært og verdensfjernt, hvorimod musikken er en behagelig og naturlig del af vores hverdag. Men fra oldtiden og helt frem til romantikken har musikken og fysikken befundet sig i en naturlig og kreativ vekselvirkning. Musikken blev opfattet som noget, der rakte langt ud over dens nuværende status som kunst eller underholdning. Siden oldtiden havde den nærmest været betragtet som essensen af den fysiske verden i den forstand, at musikken afspejlede den himmelske harmoni og livets variation og kompleksitet. Derfor er musik gang på gang blevet brugt som metafor i forståelsen af den fysiske verden. Samtidig har videnskabsmænd til stadighed studeret – og forsøgt at forklare – tonernes indbyrdes struktur såvel som musikinstrumenternes funktion. Faktisk er musikteori en af de allerældste naturvidenskaber, idet den har rødder helt tilbage til det 6. årh. f.Kr., da Pythagoras for første gang forbandt visse musikalske intervaller med bestemte talforhold. Helt op i renæssancen indgik musikteori som en selvfølge i den “naturvidenskabelige” del af de lærde skolers grunddiscipliner.Indhold:

  • Richard Wagner. Et musikantproblem af Friedrich Nietzsche E-bog Richard Wagner. Et musikantproblem af Friedrich Nietzsche

    Den verdensberømte filosof Friedrich Nietzsches angreb på komponisten Richard Wagner, der ifølge Nietzsche havde involveret sig selv for meget i den populistiske bevægelse Völkisch og antisemitismen. Nietzsche mener, at Wagner er udtryk for en større samfundsmæssig "sygdom", nemlig den nihilisme som filosoffen selv har beskrevet udpræget i sine egne værker. Kritikken står i skarp kontrast til Nietzsches tidligere skrifter om Wagner, der hyldede komponisten for at udfylde et betydeligt behov i musikken for at bevæge sig ud over det analytiske og lidenskabløse.Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) var en af de vigtigste filosoffer i moderne filosofi. Han var stærkt kritisk overfor herskende samfundsnormer og skrev kritisk om blandt andet moral, religion og kultur. Nietzsches udtalelse "Gud er død" er blevet ikonisk og betragtes i dag som et udtryk for filosoffens bekymring over Vesteuropas udvikling i hans samtid.

  • Ansigt til ansigt af Ingmar Bergman E-bog Ansigt til ansigt af Ingmar Bergman

    Ingmar Bergmans manuskript "Ansigt til ansigt" fortæller historien om en kvinde, der udadtil lader til at have det hele: en strygende karriere i erhvervslivet, et godt og solidt ægteskab med en kollega og alle de materielle goder, man kan ønske sig. Netop på grund af hendes livs øjensynligt så solide fundament er det både ufatteligt og uhyggeligt, hvor hurtigt hendes sammenbrud overvælder hende, og hvor langsomt og pinefuldt genopbyggelsesprocessen forløber.Ingmar Bergman (1918-2007) var en svensk teater- og filminstruktør, der med sine mange film og mere end 150 teateropsætninger igennem det meste af sin karriere vakte international opsigt. Bergman skrev langt de fleste manuskripter selv og udgav bøger indeholdende blandt andet filmmanuskripter ("Filmtrilogi" fra 1963) og refleksioner over og repræsentation af sin kunst ("Persona" fra 1967).

The goal is for the reader to leave the work with a new sense of priceless value.

  • Witch's Lament af William Gregg Spar 15% E-bog Witch's Lament af William Gregg

    Jimmy has been struggling with schizophrenia for quite some time. He has been in and out of the hospital before, but he is still stuck in a level of denial that is difficult for anyone to grasp, especially himself. When he is submitted to the hospital yet again, several factors come into play. He rationalizes discontinuing his medication compliance. He justifies brash, unsuitable behavior. He victimizes himself. He refuses help from others.Then a beautiful woman comes into his life. She is the representation of Jimmy's every desire, and he falls for her in every way. She inspires him to become an even greater man than he believes he can be. He would never let go of such a woman. No man would. But she tempts his soul in ways that only the most beautiful temptress in the world possibly could. She challenges his belief in everything. She creates a need in him for her that only he can fully comprehend. She seems to hold the key to his integrity and his sanity. Because of this woman, Jimmy is able to accomplish goals he never thought he could achieve. Because of this woman, he has a renewed perspective on life. Because of this woman, he has a severe confidence that no one can take away. But, because of this woman, Jimmy is slowly reverting back to a state of paranoia, fear, anguish, and despair.Eventually, schizophrenia catches up with him again and this puts him at odds with the ones who love him most. He is tormented by his past, and he can not see a way into the future. Somehow he must do the one thing that he never can seem to do. Somehow, he must see himself.

  • Fijian at Heart af Veena Rathi Spar 18% E-bog Fijian at Heart af Veena Rathi

    Rugby with the stunning Fiji team not only gave me the opportunity to experience diversity in the highest form but inspired me to share my experiences living in Fiji a paradise and well known tourist destination once known as the way the world should be also sharing my experiences living in the USA the most prosperous powerful nation on Earth, while having a blast in one of the most vibrant cities of the world, Las Vegas. Growing up as a child on a copra plantations owned by part European families I lived a fun and exciting life with some challenges and was influenced by the European culture and their language and religion A year at high school in an Indian dominated society saw me struggling to adapt to this environment attending high school with students mainly ancestors of the indentured laborers who were very competitive which made me strive for higher standards through discipline. My personality allowed me to connect with people easily and the opportunity to take part in a carnival gave me exposure not only to be in the public eye but to enhance my leadership skills and to meet with prominent people including the governor general of Fiji Ratu Sir Penaia Ganilau who later became the president of the country. Anthony Robbins the world known motivator and owner of the exclusive Namale plantation resort who I met personally inspired me to improve the quality of my communication through his book unlimited power which helped me to deal with many sensitive issues like depression, death and suicide and gave me the power to be a great leader by having a great bonding power that helped me to connect with my people to bring the best out of them. The life at an exclusive world known 5 star resort gave me the opportunity to meet the famous world environmentalist Jean Michael Cousteau and to get a taste of luxury and pampering and also to experience the hospitality of the Fijian people who are dedicated to providing outstanding service with a personal touch making Fiji one of the best tourist destinations of the world. Destiny and a true love story brought me to the USA the land of hope exposing me to a quality of life with high standards and gave me an understanding of the American dream which is about owning your own home while learning to adapt to a new environment and family and a career in banking, Recognition which is a key element in this society saw me with a gold medal presented in Hawaii for my outstanding sales and customer service skills giving me a chance to be part of a royal celebration of excellence and then becoming one of the leaders of the bank managing in a dynamic and changing environment. My inspiring management style helped me to overcome many challenges including managing people through so much change in an economy that was constantly declining and a massive lay off and with the so many opportunities out there I am now going to think a big picture, take a different route to break new ground and will find a whole new world to conquer.

  • From the Inside af Russ DiBella Spar 17% E-bog From the Inside af Russ DiBella

    In 1978, when music found its way into Russ DiBellas life largely by way of external circumstances, a natural progression of sorts began to unfold which would eventually marry his affection for words with a nascent interest in drumming and lyric writing. What began as a teenage rite of passage his first rock concert would spawn a lifelong passion for all things music, manifesting itself in ways both deliberate and unanticipated. Part memoir and part backstage pass, From the Inside is actually written from the perspective of an outsider looking in although very often and surreptitiously from within. With a detailed history of how music became such an actively integral part of his life (even before an awareness of his parents unintended influence) and an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at several concerts (to include a respectable gathering of drumsticks along the way), DiBella recounts with enthusiasm and occasional humility more than thirty years of experiences as admirer, accomplice and collector. Less a narrative about unofficial access to rock stars, From the Inside sneaks a peek behind the proverbial curtain to discover some of the inner workings of live concerts. Meeting drum techs, guitar techs and other assorted crew and band members and observing load-ins, soundchecks and even a few shows from the other side of the stage offers an intimate look at activities otherwise inaccessible to the typical concert-goer. Not wanting for moments of rocknroll flash, encounters with rockers Mick Jagger, Eddie Van Halen and Neil Peart as well as country artists Brad Paisley and Montgomery Gentry among many others provide additional insight and add elements of celebrity to this otherwise personal account. Clearly written with an appreciation both for music and those artists whove inspired, From the Inside is the story of a life examined through the lens of music.
