Heart Full of Soul: An Inspirational Memoir About Finding Your Voice and Finding Your Way (English Edition)Heart Full of Soul: An Inspirational Memoir About Finding Your Voice and Finding Your Way (English Edition)"With a Bible belt twang and a shock of gray hair, American Idol winner Hicks resembles nothing less than the other tweeny pop stars churned out by the television megahit. In this inspirational autobiography, Hicks reveals that, before capturing televised glory (and more votes than George Bush in 2004), he spent years playing to nearly-nonexistent road house audiences. Though his passion is for soul music, Hicks's life reads more like a discordant country ballad: formative years were spent shoplifting Otis Redding music, fabricating report cards and distinguishing between the 'teddy-bear drunks and mean drunks' in his family; later, he turned to blind ambition and dime-store mantras like 'embrace my oddness' to keep himself singing to empty venues. Behind-the-scenes Idol dirt is spare; Hicks discusses feelings of isolation while taping, the infamous purple jacket and the songs he chose to sing, but says little about relationships among other contestants, fans or judges. Still baffled by his sudden fame, Hicks has a charmingly humble, if not particularly dynamic, voice best summed up in his standard reply to people who stop to tell him he looks an awful lot like Taylor Hicks: 'Yeah, you know, it's funny, I get that all the time.'"

My life has been all about believing in what lies just around the corner. After winning American Idol and recording my first commercial album, it still feels like the best is yet to come.

For the longest time, during some rough boyhood years in Alabama and the grind of performing on the road, the odds against me were discouraging. But there was always a voice inside telling me it was going to get better.

Mom and Dad certainly started out with good intentions, but early on, as their marriage went south and I went in whatever direction was necessary to avoid the fallout, I realized my life was going to be up to me.

Thinking back, my first step toward singing for a living was stealing an Otis Redding album when I was nine. What I heard on that platter was life-changing, and pretty soon I was learning to play the harmonica, which, I can assure you, didn’t attract many female fans—in fact, any fans at all.

I eventually decided that not being taken seriously can be a good thing. It stokes the fires. Maybe the reason I like soul music so much is that it inspires with its pain. The best artists, like Ray Charles, reach out and say, “You’re not alone, brother.”

In all my years on the road—trying to make it in Nashville and those Southern honky-tonks known as the “Chitlin Circuit”—I never thought it would take an act of God to push my destiny into the right groove. But as you’ll hear, it was nearly getting washed away by Hurricane Katrina that led to my Idol tryout. And what happened next was a little bit like when Alice dropped down that rabbit hole—just substitute Simon Cowell for the Mad Hatter.

In Heart Full of Soul, I share some life stories that will hopefully inspire you—give you a sense of my philosophy and how it drove me. For example, I talk about my good friend who died in a tragic accident and the prediction he made that tugged at my thoughts throughout Idol’s qualifying rounds. I also discuss what it was like when I realized Eminem has it right: when you only have one shot, you’d better lose yourself in the music.

A lot of great fans lined up behind me the night of the Idol finale. This book is about the strange path that led me to that pop-culture moment, and the sharp directional changes that occurred after that phenomenal night, including touring America, producing an album, and experiencing that two-sided gig known as American celebrity.

I hope that some of the lessons I’ve learned along the way will help you, especially if the shot you’ve been yearning for is just around the corner.

However an increase in police shootings of black men, a contentious presidential election and rising xenophobia forces a perfect stern of a face off between investigative law enforcement and the controversial revolutionary activists. As the nation's capitol and seemingly the century itself descends into chaos will Ashanti's strong stance for equality gather multicultural unity, or be dismantled entirely?

Assaut sur le central 13 [Ãdition Simple]Assaut sur le central 13 [Édition Simple]: Remake du film de John Carpenter, ce film du français Jean-François Richet choisit un angle d’attaque et des partis pris narratifs qui assurent un spectacle des plus divertissants. Une séquence d’introduction mouvementée, une mise en place de l’intrigue originale, un casting extrêmement homogène et l’on se dit que Richet est l’homme de la situation, créant une belle atmosphère et maîtrisant son récit durant la plus grande partie du temps. Moins convaincant dans l’action pure, il sait cependant se montrer assez efficace pour ne pas avoir à rougir de la comparaison avec l’original.

Le film est présenté dans une édition collector très pertinente, notamment grâce au commentaire audio du réalisateur qui offre un modèle d’intervention : enthousiaste et précis. Le making of, les coulisses de production – moins intéressants – sont accompagnés de 5 scènes coupées qui montrent l’évolution qu’a subi le film pour être le plus efficace et direct possible. www.ecranlarge.com
