There is – and could only ever be – one Billy Bob Thornton: actor, musician, Academy Award-winning screenwriter, and accidental Hollywood badass. In The Billy Bob Tapes, he spins colourful tales of his dirt-poor Southern upbringing, his Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (fear of komodo dragons and antiques), his life, his loves (including his marriage to fellow Oscar winner Angelina Jolie), and, of course, his movie career. The Billy Bob Tapes is full of incredible stories and righteous philosophical rants, told with the help of his close friend, legendary country music star and bestselling author, Kinky Friedman. Put these two iconoclasts together and you get a story that’s not just a celebrity memoir, but a unique, hilarious and insightful pop culture manifesto.

(Book). Kinky Friedman has always maintained his Kinkster persona and hidden Richard Friedman from the public eye. Using one-liners, humor, and occasional rudeness, he follows the advice of his friend Bob Dylan to keep an aura of mystery. Author Mary Lou Sullivan spent many contentious days and nights at Kinky's Texas Hill Country ranch before he trusted her enough to open up and speak candidly. Best known as an irreverent cigar-chomping Jewish country-and-western singer, turned author, turned politician, Kinky has dined on monkey brains in the jungles of Borneo, supped with presidents, and vacationed with Bob Dylan in the tiny fishing village of Yelapa, Mexico. A satirist who loves pushing the envelope, he's been attacked onstage, received bomb threats, and put on the only show in Austin City Limits' history deemed too offensive to air. From the 1970s music scene in L.A. with Tom Waits and the Band, to political platforms advocating legalized marijuana, to friendships with John Belushi, Joseph Heller, Don Imus, Willie Nelson, Dwight Yoakam, and Billy Bob Thornton, this is the candid account based on dozens and years of interviews of the larger-than-life Texan who is still writing books and songs, recording albums, and performing for enthusiastic audiences throughout the world.

Ever wondered how Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie rose to stardom? Brad Pitt is more than just a pretty face, though. In addition to his good looks and acting talent, the Shawnee, Oklahoma native is also an admirable human being, having struggled to attain his success, and a person who gives back to society and is concerned with social issues. Pitt never graduated from university, dropping out two weeks before graduation, several credits shy of his degree. He packed his bags and drove off in his Datsun, whom he named Runaround Sue, leaving Missouri behind to try to make a name for himself as an actor in Los Angeles. The famous Angelina Jolie as we know her now was actually born as Angelina Jolie Voight, daughter of actor Jon Voight and actress/model Marcheline Bertrand. She was born in Los Angeles, California. When she was just 2 years old, her parents split up. Her mother moved Angelina and her brother James, to the Pallisades in the state of New York City. Angelina got bullied in high school for being too thin, for having scars, for not having a car, for wearing glasses and having to wear braces. She also got rejected in her pursuit of getting a modeling contract for the same reasons as her bullies said. For more interesting facts you must read the biographies! Grab your books now!

Cormac McCarthy and Performance

Cormac McCarthy and Performance

Thornton, Billy Bob, and Kinky Friedman. The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts. New York: William Morrow, 2012. Print. Tonkin, Boyd. “Cormac and the Camera.” Independent [London] 13 November 2013. Web. 12 September 2014.

Cormac McCarthy is renowned as the author of popular and acclaimed novels such as Blood Meridian, All the Pretty Horses, and The Road. Throughout his career, however, McCarthy has also invested deeply in writing for film and theater, an engagement with other forms of storytelling that is often overlooked. He is the author of five screenplays and two plays, and he has been significantly involved with three of the seven film adaptations of his work. In this book, Stacey Peebles offers the first extensive overview of this relatively unknown aspect of McCarthy's writing life, including the ways in which other artists have interpreted his work for the stage and screen. Drawing on many primary sources in McCarthy's recently opened archive, as well as interviews, Peebles covers the 1977 televised film The Gardener's Son; McCarthy's unpublished screenplays from the 1980s that became the foundation for his Border Trilogy novels and No Country for Old Men; various successful and unsuccessful productions of his two plays; and all seven film adaptations of his work, including John Hillcoat's The Road (2009) and the Coen brothers' Oscar-winning No Country for Old Men (2007). Emerging from this narrative is the central importance of tragedy—the rich and varied portrayals of violence and suffering and the human responses to them—in all of McCarthy's work, but especially his writing for theater and film.

Cormac McCarthy's work is attracting an increasing number of scholars and critics from a range of disciplines within the humanities and beyond, from political philosophy to linguistics and from musicology to various branches of the sciences. Cormac McCarthy's Borders and Landscapes contributes to this developing field of research, investigating the way McCarthy's writings speak to other works within the broader fields of American literature, international literature, border literature, and other forms of comparative literature. It also explores McCarthy's literary antecedents and the movements out of which his work has emerged, such as modernism, romanticism, naturalism, eco-criticism, genre-based literature (western, southern gothic), folkloric traditions and mythology.

Biography of legendary singer-songwriter Warren Zevon, spanning his nomadic youth and early recording career to his substance abuse, final album, and posthumous Grammy Awards As is the case with so many musicians, the life of Warren Zevon was blessed with talent and opportunity yet also beset by tragedy and setbacks. Raised mostly by his mother with an occasional cameo from his gangster father, Warren had an affinity and talent for music at an early age. Taking to the piano and guitar almost instantly, he began imitating and soon creating songs at every opportunity. After an impromptu performance in the right place at the right time, a record deal landed on the lap of a teenager who was eager to set out on his own and make a name for himself. But of course, where fame is concerned, things are never quite so simple. Drawing on original interviews with those closest to Zevon, including Crystal Zevon, Jackson Browne, Mitch Albom, Danny Goldberg, Barney Hoskyns, and Merle Ginsberg, Nothing's Bad Luck tells the story of one of rock's greatest talents. Journalist C.M. Kushins not only examines Zevon's troubled personal life and sophisticated, ever-changing musical style, but emphasizes the moments in which the two are inseparable, and ultimately paints Zevon as a hot-headed, literary, compelling, musical genius worthy of the same tier as that of Bob Dylan and Neil Young. In Nothing's Bad Luck, Kushins at last gives Warren Zevon the serious, in-depth biographical treatment he deserves, making the life of this complex subject accessible to fans old and new for the very first time.

ABOUT THE BOOK Angelina Jolie is an American film actress and activist. Daughter of actor Jon Voight, she is almost as well-known her for personal life as she is for her film career and humanitarian work. She has three children with fellow actor Brad Pitt, including a set of twins. The Jolie-Pitt union resulted in one of the most talked-about celebrity scandals of the last 20 years, as Pitt was married to actress Jennifer Aniston when he met Jolie. Though Jolie, Pitt and Aniston all deny that Jolie and Pitt had an affair while Pitt was still married to Aniston, the love triangle continues to appear in tabloid headlines. Jolie has frequently been listed as one of the worlds most beautiful women. In the early days of her acting career, Jolie was thought of as a wild child who frequently made shocking admissions and appearances, such as her fondness for collecting knives. Jolie is best known for her Oscar-winning turn as a mental patient in Girl, Interrupted, as well as her role in the successful Lara Croft: Tomb Raider series, based on the video game of the same name.

This resulted in issues with both depression and cutting herself. She entered into a sexual relationship with her boyfriend at the age of fourteen, and even had her boyfriend move into her house with her and her mother and brother. Even though Jolie did not receive much encouragement from Voight, she grew up with a sense of determination and ambition that would eventually make her one of the biggest stars in the world. The actress attended the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute when she was eleven years old and performed in numerous stage productions during her two-year stint at the institution.
