A Wasteland Companion - M. Ward

The good things, you know? Good barbecue, a long afternoon with no particular plan and no particular need for one, getting dressed for the first football game of the season, drying off after a great day at the beach. M Ward is right up there for me, his smokey smooth voice going down easy, his twangy guitar magical in my ears. This is him at his finest, melodic and smooth, with great lyrics. I was hooked by the time I got to "The First Time I ran Away", but my favorite track has got to be "Wild Goose", which just settles into the right groove and never leaves. "Pure Joy" ends the album with a smile, and my wife likes this one best. This is a can't go wrong album for fans of folky,indie goodness.

Unleashing Your Inner Party Planner to Entertain Friends and Family

Book obviously was just released and I pre paid for this book and couldnt wait for this book to arrive and when my book finally arrived I was so excited and I love this book. This book was put together very nicely, I like how she informed us of her childhood (where her party motivation came from) at the beginning that was quite nice. Lots of ideas in here, I have not read the whole thing book yet... But... So far the book has impressed me! I love watching her shows because she has inspired me so much that I even realized I was always the person to make others a better life but not my own. I now do not put myself on the back burner and become a better person for myself and other. I love the way she works with colors with not only fashion but also in designing colors for rooms as well. I have made changes in our home and it has been changed for the better. I love Tori's books and shows. Please keep them both going!!!

Catching Fire (The Second Book of the Hunger Games)

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

I clasp the flask between my hands even though the warmth from the tea has long since leached into the frozen air. My muscles are clenched tight against the cold. If a pack of wild dogs were to appear at this moment, the odds of scaling a tree before they attacked are not in my favor. I should get up, move around, and work the stiffness from my limbs. But instead I sit, as motionless as the rock beneath me, while the dawn begins to lighten the woods. I can't fight the sun. I can only watch helplessly as it drags me into a day that I've been dreading for months.

By noon they will all be at my new house in the Victor's Village. The reporters, the camera crews, even Effie Trinket, my old escort, will have made their way to District 12 from the Capitol. I wonder if Effie will still be wearing that silly pink wig, or if she'll be sporting some other unnatural color especially for the Victory Tour. There will be others waiting, too. A staff to cater to my every need on the long train trip. A prep team to beautify me for public appearances. My stylist and friend, Cinna, who designed the gorgeous outfits that first made the audience take notice of me in the Hunger Games.

Unsur-Unsur Penyajian Teater Nusantara

Seni teater bukan hanya sebuah pertunjukan lakon yang dibawakan berdasarkan bahan seadanya dan dibawakan dengan kesertamertaan (improvisasi), tetapi berdasarkan naskah yang sudah dipersiapkan terlebih dahulu. Oleh sebab itu, seni teater berhubungan erat dengan seni sastra. Antara seniman teater dan sastrawan memiliki hubungan yang saling menguntungkan. Bagi para seniman penggarap teater, lakon teater bisa terus diproduksi karena adanya naskah sebagai bahan baku pertunjukan yang merupakan hasil karya para sastrawan.Sumber cipta karya seni teater dapat berasal dari asal muasal terjadinya tempat berbeda, seperti kisah terjadinya Gunung Tangkuban Parahu, terjadinya Candi Prambanan, dan terjadinya Danau Toba. Ada pula kisah yang di dalamnya mengandung kesejarahan (sage), contohnya kisah Ken Arok dan Ken Dedes. Selain itu, ada kisah tentang kepercayaan tertentu (mite), seperti cerita Nyi Roro Kidul dan ada kisah tentang kelucuan seseorang, seperti kisah Si Kabayan dan kisah Pak Belalang.

Dilihat dari bentuk penyajiannya, lakon bisa disajikan dengan berbagai cara, yaitu didongengkan atau dituturkan (teater tutur) dengan cara dibacakan. Dilihat dari media ungkap yang digunakan, ada yang menggunakan media gerak tari (teater tari); menggunakan media musik (opera, operet. atau teater musikal); dan menggunakan media bahasa (verbal); balk dialog (percakapan antardua orang atau lebih), maupun monolog (percakapan hanya satu orang).
Selain memiliki keragaman bentuk, lakon dalam sastra Indonesia jenisnya juga bermacam-macam. Ada jenis lakon tragedi yang bersifat kesedihan. Tragedi berasal dari kata tragedia (bahasa Yunani) yang artinya 'lenguhan kambing jantan ketika disembelih'. Adapula jenis lakon komedi, yaitu jenis lakon yang bersifat lucu, membuat penonton tertawa, atau menertawakan sebuah peristiwa. Komedi berasal dari kata komedia (bahasa Yunani), artinya kegembiraan atau sukaria. Selain itu, ada juga jenis lakon yang merupakan perpaduan antara tragedi dan komedi.
