I rode without a saddle, feeling free and easy with silvery moonbeams spinning about my face. Darkness gathered behind me, erasing proof of my midnight trespasses, and like a meadow tap dance, only the subtle sound of clopping hooves testified I was there. I closed my eyes, bidding the wind to romance me with chilly kisses. The Veil of Azure Sequins is a tragically beautiful story of deception and intrigue--a chilling look into the broken mind that is both fragile and resilient.

This is possibly the most entertaining, surprising and enjoyable film book ever written. Thomson set himself the near-foolhardy task of writing one page each on 1000 of the films that he has particularly liked – or in some cases, abhorred. Some half-million words of funny, vigorous, wayward prose later, we are all the happy beneficiaries of his deranged labour. Always unexpected, never repetitive, ‘Have You Seen...?’ can be read consecutively – from Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein to Zabriskie Point – or dipped into over many years, and it is a masterclass in how to write about films and how to love them. Sometimes Thomson will be interested in the director, sometimes in the culture that made such a film possible at such a time, sometimes in the stars (always in the stars, to be honest), and sometimes even in the outrageous cynicism and corruption of most financial backers. ‘Have You Seen...?’ is crammed with great love stories, westerns, musicals, war stories, comedies, and dramas. It is as in awe of film noir as of silent farce, and adores Hollywood but also favours British, Japanese and European cinema: camp disasters, kitsch and pretention hold no fears. If Thomson has a bottom line it is his incredulity that so much that is so enjoyable and moving and worthwhile was ever made at all – and that thanks to DVD we can now watch it forever. ‘Have You Seen...?’ will redirect how you spend your evenings for the rest of your life – for the better.

Dorian Gray is the decadent archetype, anti-hero of Oscar Wildes only novel, an underground classic which scandalized society upon its publication in 1890. Gray is the debauched libertine who retains a veneer of eternal youth during decades of increasingly outlandish vice, depravity and corruption, while his portrait ages and rots in an attic. Here in its rare original incarnation, the overtly homoerotic Lippincott edition, it includes an appendix sampling Wildes later revisions, with an introduction by Jeremy Reed detailing the two editions and realigning the books position in the history of subversive underground fiction. With its outr elements of homosexuality, drug abuse and supernatural horror, this remains Wildes most extreme creation, a true classic of renegade literature. With a cover illustration by Aubrey Beardsley, this is the only available edition of Dorian Gray in its original, uncut form. Solar Nocturnal presents classic texts by key forerunners of modernism

Flamboyant and controversial, Oscar Wilde was a dazzling personality, a master of wit, and a dramatic genius whose sparkling comedies contain some of the most brilliant dialogue ever written for the English stage. Here in one volume are his immensely popular novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray; his last literary work, “The Ballad of Reading Gaol,” a product of his own prison experience; and four complete plays: Lady Windermere’s Fan, his first dramatic success, An Ideal Husband, which pokes fun at conventional morality, The Importance of Being Earnest, his finest comedy, and Salomé, a portrait of uncontrollable love originally written in French and faithfully translated by Richard Ellmann. Every selection appears in its entirety–a marvelous collection of outstanding works by the incomparable Oscar Wilde, who’s been aptly called “a lord of language” by Max Beerbohm.

Henry Jenkins at [email protected] (video) Vaudevillians used the term "the wow climax" to refer to the emotional highpoint of their acts—a final moment of peak spectacle following a gradual building of audience's emotions. Viewed by most critics as vulgar and sensationalistic, the vaudeville aesthetic was celebrated by other writers for its vitality, its liveliness, and its playfulness. The Wow Climax follows in the path of this more laudatory tradition, drawing out the range of emotions in popular culture and mapping what we might call an aesthetic of immediacy. It pulls together a spirited range of work from Henry Jenkins, one of our most astute media scholars, that spans different media (film, television, literature, comics, games), genres (slapstick, melodrama, horror, exploitation cinema), and emotional reactions (shock, laughter, sentimentality). Whether highlighting the sentimentality at the heart of the Lassie franchise, examining the emotional experiences created by horror filmmakers like Wes Craven and David Cronenberg and avant garde artist Matthew Barney, or discussing the emerging aesthetics of video games, these essays get to the heart of what gives popular culture its emotional impact.

There are still a few things money can’t buy. Love is one, cool is another. But while love can be left to fate, cool doesn’t need to be. Though it may seem like something you’re born with, cool is actually a code, and you’re holding the key to the code in your hands. It’s all a matter of getting the right facts straight: Why is Jackson Pollock important? What handbag will get you upgraded at the airport? Who is Jacques Derrida and why does he matter? Covering everything from fashion and design to art and philosophy—all in entertaining, fact-filled bites—Nancy MacDonell has assembled the ultimate cheat sheet. In the Know is nothing less than a one-volume guide to navigating life with style and flair.

The Picture of Dorian Gray is the story of one beautiful, innocent young man'sseduction, moral corruption, and eventual downfall.And, oh yeah: it's also thestory of a really creepy painting.We meet our three central characters at the beginning of the book, when painterBasil Hallward and his close friend, Lord Henry Wotton, are discussing thesubject of Basil's newest painting, a gorgeous young thing named Dorian Gray.Basil and Henry discuss just how perfectly perfect Dorian is--he's totallyinnocent and completely good, as well as being the most beautiful guy ever towalk the earth. Lord Henry wants to meet this mysterious boy, but Basil doesn'twant him to; for some reason, he's afraid of what will happen to Dorian if LordHenry digs his claws into him.However, Lord Henry gets his wish--Dorian shows up that very afternoon, and,over the course of the day, Henry manages to totally change Dorian'sperspective on the world. From that point on, Dorian's previously innocent pointof view is dramatically different--he begins to see life as Lord Henry does, as asuccession of pleasures in which questions of good and evil are irrelevant.Basil finishes his portrait of Dorian, and gives it to the young man, who keeps itin his home, where he can admire his own beauty. Lord Henry continues to exerthis influence over Dorian, to Basil's dismay. Dorian grows more and moredistant from Basil, his former best friend, and develops his own interests.One of these interests is Sybil Vane, a young, exceptionally beautiful,exceptionally talented--and exceptionally poor--actress. Though she's stuckperforming in a terrible, third-rate theatre, she's a truly remarkable artist, andher talent and beauty win over Dorian. He falls dramatically in love with her,and she with him.For a moment, it seems like everything will turn out wonderfully. However, thisis just the beginning of Dorian's story. Once he and Sybil are engaged, her talentsuddenly disappears--she's so overcome with her passionate love for Dorianthat none of her roles on stage seem important to her anymore. This destroysDorian's love for her, and he brutally dumps her. Back home, he notices asomething different in his portrait--it looks somehow crueler. In the meanwhile,the distraught Sybil commits suicide, just as Dorian decides to return to her andtake back his terrible words.Sybil's suicide changes everything. At first, Dorian feels horrible... but he ratherquickly changes his tune. On Lord Henry's suggestion, Dorian reads amysterious "yellow book," a decadent French novel that makes him reevaluatehis whole belief system. The protagonist of the book lives his life in pursuit ofsensual pleasures, which intrigues Dorian. From this moment on, Dorian is achanged man.Dorian starts to live as hedonistically as his wicked mentor, Lord Henry, does.The only thing that documents this turn for the worst is the portrait, whichalarmingly begins to exhibit the inward corruption of Dorian's soul; thebeautiful image changes, revealing new scars and physical flaws with each ofDorian's dastardly actions. As years pass, the man in the picture grows more andmore hideous, as Dorian himself stays unnaturally young and beautiful. Rumorsstart to spread about the various people whose lives Dorian has ruined, and hisformerly good reputation is destroyed.On Dorian's 38th birthday, he encounters Basil, who desperately asks his formerfriend if all the horrifying rumors about him are true. Dorian finally snaps andshows Basil the portrait, in which the horrible truth about his wicked nature isrevealed. Basil recoils, and begs Dorian to pray for forgiveness. In response,Dorian murders Basil, stabbing him brutally. He blackmails another of hisformer friends into disposing of the body.Dorian retreats to an opium den after dealing with all of the evidence, where heencounters an enemy he didn't know he had--Sybil Vane's brother
