23 Frampton, Hollis ON THE CAMERA ARTS AND CONSECUTIVE MATTERS: THE WRITINGS OF HOLLIS FRAMPTON (WRITING ART)
The MIT Press 2009 0262062763 / 9780262062763 Hardcover Very Good 
As Hollis Frampton's photographs and celebrated experimental films were tes ting the boundaries of "the camera arts" in the 1960s and 1970s, his provoc ative and highly literate writings were attempting to establish an intellec tually resonant form of discourse for these critically underexplored fields . It was a time when artists working in diverse disciplines were beginning to pick up cameras and produce films and videotapes, well before these prac tices were understood or embraced by institutions of contemporary art. This collection of Frampton's writings presents his critical essays (many writt en for Artforum and October) along with additional material, including lect ures, correspondence, interviews, and production notes and scripts. It repl aces--and supersedes--the long-unavailable Circles of Confusion, published in 1983. Frampton ranged widely over the visual arts in his writing, and th e texts in this collection display his unique approaches to photography, fi lm, and video, as well as the plastic and literary arts. They include criti cally acclaimed essays on Edward Weston and Eadweard Muybridge as well as a ppraisals of contemporary photographers; the influential essay, "For a Meta history of Film," along with scripts, textual material, and scores for his films; writings on video that constitute a prehistory of the digital arts; a dialogue with Carl Andre (his friend and former Phillips Andover classmat e) from the early 1960s; and two inventive, almost unclassifiable pieces th at are reminiscent of Borges, Joyce, and Beckett.

TERRY JONES'S WAR ON THE WAR ON TERROR: OBSERVATIONS AND DENUNCIATIONS BY A FOUNDING MEMBER OF MONTY PYTHON, Jones, Terry
26 Jones, Terry TERRY JONES'S WAR ON THE WAR ON TERROR: OBSERVATIONS AND DENUNCIATIONS BY A FOUNDING MEMBER OF MONTY PYTHON
Nation Books 2004 1560256532 / 9781560256533 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Terry Jones is known the world over as one of the beloved creators of the legendary Monty Python. But independent of the Python team, Jones has been writing columns targeting the Anglo-American response to September 11. His wit and venom are particularly focused on the messianic vernacular of Bush and Blair and the semantics of the "war on terror." As Jones writes, "What really alarms me about President Bush's ?War on Terrorism' is the grammar. How do you wage war on an abstract noun? ... How is ?Terrorism' going to surrender? It's well known, in philological circles, that it's very hard for abstract nouns to surrender." Terry Jones's War on the War on Terror proves that in times of high political anxiety, humor and irony are most potent antidotes to the spin emanating from the White House and Downing Street.

A CAST OF KILLERS, Kirkpatrick, Sidney D.
30 Kirkpatrick, Sidney D. A CAST OF KILLERS
Penguin 1987 0140100865 / 9780140100860 Paperback Very Good 
As he was researching his "official" biography of King Vidor, the late film director, Kirkpatrick made the discovery on which this true crime story is built. Vidor, planning to make a movie about William Desmond Taylor, murde red in 1922, set out to investigate the unsolved crime 45 years later. Tayl or had been a famous director of silents and his death was a sensation that ruined the careers of actresses Mary Miles Minter, Mabel Normand (the vict im's reputed lovers) and other Hollywood luminaries. Kirkpatrick skillfully leads the reader into Vidor's search as the director studies old files and questions people in the movie colony who remembered those involved in the tragedy. The result is a riveting mystery. In his dramatic reconstruction, Kirkpatrick uncovers Vidor's convincing evidence, never disclosed by the di rector, that Taylor was killed by the mother of ingenue Minter.

32 Ladd, Jim RADIO WAVES: LIFE AND REVOLUTION ON THE FM DIAL
St. Martin's Griffin 1992 0312077866 / 9780312077860 Paperback Good 
This copy is signed by the author, and has what seems to be a coffee stain on the ffep,and to the page edges o/w a good readable copy, of this rare si gned copy; Not ony is Ladd, a L.A. disc jockey for more than 20 years, trapped in a 19 60s-1970s time warp, the golden age of rock, but he seems to be unaware of his own hype. He views pre-rock tunes as bubblegum music and those written after 1980 as corporate music for yuppiedom. He ascribes a nobility of moti ve, a power of intellect and virtually limitless talent to the top rockers, arguing that John Lennon, for one, "created some of the most enduring musi c of all time." If Ladd's uncritical enthusiasm for the era and its stars d oes not prove off-putting to discerning readers, the lyrics he quotes in ab undance will. Stripped of the music, the messages and sentiments expressed by the lyrics sound anything but profound. Photos not seen by PW. Copyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From Library Journal This account of Ladd's career as a Los Angeles FM radio disc jockey spans the late 1960s to the late 1980s. Ladd begins with a summary of the rise of free-form FM radio as an alternative to top-40 programming under Tom Donahue at KMPX and later KSAN in San Francisco. He masks many names and stations' call letters in pseudonyms, diminishing his book's value as a historical account. However, his story is by turns inspiring and infuriating, as we read of the creative new medium being gradually co-opted by its corporate ownership and forced into a strict programming format adhering to market rese

WOODY ALLEN: A BIOGRAPHY, Lax, Eric
33 Lax, Eric WOODY ALLEN: A BIOGRAPHY
Audio Renaissance 1991 1559271825 / 9781559271820 Audio, Cassett Very Good 
Few celebrities are as instantly recognizable as Woody Allen. Few are as no toriously shy. And perhaps none are as elusive: Is Woody Allen a comedian w ho wants to be taken seriously? Or is he a serious artist whose films happe n to be funny? The very fact that Eric Lax was granted access to Woody for four years in order to research this biography must be counted as a triumph . And what Lax has produced is a marvel of intimacy and insight: a book tha t traces Allen's career from his precocious start as a gag writer to his ap otheosis as a genuine auteur; a book that takes readers behind the scenes o f films such as Annie Hall, Hannah and Her Sisters, and Crimes and Misdemea nors; a book that overflows with Woody's candid opinions of his work, his p ersonal relationships, and his life.

Tod Lippy speaks to Spike Lee, Jim Jarmusch, Sidne y Lumet, Christine Vachon, David O. Russell, Nora Ephron, Tim Robbins, Fran ces McDormand, and many others. Editorial Reviews

38 MacDonald, Scott ART IN CINEMA: DOCUMENTS TOWARD A HISTORY OF THE FILM SOCIETY (WIDE ANGLE B OOKS)
Temple University Press 2006 1592134254 / 9781592134250 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A clean hardcover, no markings throughout, NOT an ex-library edition: From 1946 until 1954, 'Art in Cinema' presented programs of independent film to large audiences at the San Francisco Museum of Art and at the University of California, Berkeley. Directed by the filmmaker Frank Stauffacher, 'Art in Cinema's' programs were crucial to the emergence of the Bay Area as one of the centers of independent filmmaking. The society also published a book on the international evolution of avant-garde filmmaking - reproduced in this volume in facsimile form - and offered to its members and the public a coherent history of this important genre. Coupled with its companion volume, "Cinema 16" (also published by Temple), "Art in Cinema" provides cineastes, students, teachers and scholars with extensive, readable, fascinating documentation of one of the most important film societies in American history, and both books together proved an indispensable reference source for the very beginning of this country's love affair with independent film.

A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. In this New York Times-bestselling inspirational memoir, Camryn Manheim, Em my Award-winning costar of The Practice, chronicles her journey from a self -hating, "overweight" teenager, who desperately wanted to fit in, to a self -loving, fat activist who is proud to be a misfit. Wake Up, I'm Fat! shares her intelligent, candid, poignant, and often hilarious stories of being fa t in a society obsessed with being thin. Camryn takes us from her days as a motorcycle-riding hippie in Santa Cruz t o her enrollment at New York University's prestigious school of drama--wher e Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner broke the unspoken theater rules of size by casting her in the role of the ingenue--and finally to Ho llywood, where she dispelled the fallacy that large women can't be portraye d as sensual, sophisticated, and confident. Camryn's endearing honesty, sass, and razor-sharp wit will appeal to any reader who has ever felt like an outcast or yearned to make peace with their body.
