Vampirism as a (Timeless) Image : Interpretation of Angela Carter´s Radio Play Vampirella: Sabrina Kreppel
Following a breakout year for Liz Brasher, including cross country tours with rock and roll legends The Psychedelic Furs and The Zombies as well as Red Wanting Blue, today she´s announced her follow up to her Outcast EP from earlier this year with her debut full-length album coming on Fat Possum Records January 18th, 2019. Today sees the first taste of the new album with Love Feasts before Brasher heads back on the road with The Psychedelic Furs for an east coast run this fall. Speaking to the single Brasher says Love Feasts is a stream of subconsciousness that came out of me in maybe 10 minutes. It was fast. I had been reading poetry, the book of Jude, and doing a lot of self-reflecting. In turn, it came out as a mixture of beautiful imagery wrapped in darkness. It´s not about any one particular thing. It´s a song you can look at from different perspectives and still find new meaning over time. At its core it begs the listener to be watchful of who they let in to their intimate space. It also asks them to always forgive when they have been wronged (the inevitable). To undergo purification, reconciliation, and ultimately completely letting go of what has happened. Liz Brasher´s debut album showcases her robust voice, accompanied by her technical guitar playing and allegorical songwriting, with her inspirations stemming from a myriad of musicians, wandering from Pops Staples to surf guitar icons The Ventures. Brasher has a punch to her playing on record, but when it comes to her live performances, she is an absolute powerhouse show stopper. Brasher distills this passion and vigor into eleven powerful tracks on her debut LP. Liz Brasher´s Painted Image sees this fiery vocalist and band leader digging into her past and present to create music that is as timeless as it is refreshing. Hers is a diverse sound rooted in the influence of Brasher´s two homes: her adopted hometown of Memphis; and her childhood stomping grounds in rural North Carolina, where she was raised in a musical, multi-ethnic household that influences every aspect of her creative work.
DescriptionThe solos in this collection present a myriad of moods on the guitar. They were written to be very expressive, contemplative pieces which could be performed in a variety of secular and sacred settings. Most of them are from three solo collections previously released, entitled Guitar Meditations (MB22029), Guitar Airs and Ballads (MB22039) and Timeless Solos for Guitar (MB22041). Some of the pieces were scored for 7-string guitar; however, they can also be performed on 6-string guitar—indicated are the alternate 6-string pedal tones in the tablature part. Many of the solos use a cross-picking technique alternating higher position closed strings and open strings, resulting in a ´´harp-like” effect. The included tablature parts allow for a clear presentation of this effect and clarify where on the fingerboard these passages should be played. A number of the pieces are in Dropped D tuning, highlighting the rich resonance that tuning gives the instrument. All of these solos may be performed by the classical or fingerstyle guitarist or, as originally performed, with a pick. Explore the diverse moods presented in this collection and make full use of the many avenues of expression offered in these pieces! A companion dual CD is available with all 25 solos included.
´´Gems and Gemstones´´ features nearly 300 color images of cut gems, precious and semiprecious stones, gem-quality mineral specimens, and fine jewelry to be unveiled in the new Grainger Hall of Gems at the Field Museum in Chicago.

Stoicism is often misunderstood merely as enduring hardship without complaint, but this is a modern misconception. The ancient Stoics had a much more complex view of life and the world. In Stoicism, we’ll look at the full story, including: The history of the ancient Stoics The nature of good and evil, virtue and vice The difference between the things we can control and the things we can’t Living in the present while dealing with fears of the future Logic and practical reasoning Stoicism´s role in the development of a new state of mind Stoicism´s role in the discovery of a new consciousness How to hold to ancient beliefs in a modern society We all want to live a good life. We want to do our part, enjoy life, and do some good in the world. It sounds simple - and in some sense it is - but tying the big picture to everyday life is often hard. We’re bombarded with images and stories about people who are more beautiful than us, richer than us, more famous than us. We face a world of human frailties - ours and others - that often make life difficult and unpleasant. But we get to decide who we are. We get to decide how we’re going to look at our mistakes. We get to decide how we’re going to look at the insults and injuries others inflict upon us. We get to decide what is important and what is not. In this audiobook, I explain how Stoicism is far richer and deeper than simply enduring hardship without complaint and provide a road map for applying classic Stoic principles in a modern world. My comprehensive guide is an exploration of Stoicism in clear and common language suitable for nonacademic audiences, while also providing a practical guide for living your best life. In it, you’ll learn how to prioritize the things you can control. You’ll learn how to acknowledge insult, injury, and your own p... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Adam Day.
