Owl and the Pussy CatUnited Kingdom 1 subscribers add
Thank you for visiting my podcast page! This and other NEW material is NOW available from the iTunes shop! You can easily find it by entering "Owl Cat" in the iTunes Search.
The SciFi Opera is a carefully selected, hand-picked troupe of actors and musicians and children who carefully recite recipes and stuff by ancient nonsense poet Edward Lear. Their first critically acclaimed CD of the most popular work also features some orginal songs and some unashamed tributes, in the context of Lear's work, to such popular artists as The Queen, Monty Python, Spike Milligan, Gilbert & Sullivan, Elvis Presley, Brian May, Mr Kipling and Status Quo. The inspiration for the work is that mysterious place discovered by Edward Lear which he called "The Great Gromboolian Plain" which hosts that most most famous of arborial legends: The Bong Tree. It is of course, the land to which the Owl and the Pussy Cat sailed. No live animals were injured in the recording of this CD. Unless you count the one playing the guitars who thought the headphones were a bit loud.
Jack and Jill by Louisa May AlcottIndia 1 subscribers add
Louisa May Alcott, more famously known for her Little Women series, takes a familiar nursery rhyme and creates a whole novel out of it in one of her last books Jack and Jill: A Village Story. Though she continued to publish under the penname AM Barnard, this book probably marked the end of a particular writing phase in 1880.
Jack and Jill is set in the fictional Harmony Village. On a December afternoon, the youngsters of the village are out enjoying the bracing cold and snow. The bright winter shines down as they have fun skating and sledding. A group of spectators sits on the fences, watching their more active friends zoom past on toboggans or skates. A shiny red sled comes hurtling past, carrying a tall, golden haired lad and a tiny, black haired girl. They are the inseparable friends, Jack Minot and Janey Pecq, nicknamed Jack and Jill by the villagers in keeping with the famous rhyme. Disaster strikes when Janey (Jill) compels Jack to coast down a perilous slope. The two are seriously injured and the rest of the story follows their convalescence and consequent growing into maturity and adulthood.
Apart from the entertaining and educational story, Jack and Jill also tackles several important social issues of the day. Children's health, the transition from childhood to adolescence, the importance of emotional support during illness and the life-changing consequences of our impulsive actions are some of the themes that are explored in detail in this entertaining yet thought provoking novel.
Filled with interesting characters and Alcott's typical spiritual underpinnings, the book also looks at that crucial stage of human development – Adolescence. This phase, with all its emotional and physical changes, the angst and joys, the rebellion and the learning are all wonderfully portrayed through many of the characters like Molly Boo and other friends of Jack and Janey.
Many of Louisa May Alcott's stories and novels are based on autobiographical elements. Her father, Amos Bronson Alcott was a spiritual healer and teacher who compelled his family to adopt an unconventional and experimental lifestyle in a commune. The young Louisa was a rebel and chafed under the tough child rearing practices favored by her father. Some of these features can be seen in her fictional characters like Jo March. In this particular book, Jack and Jill too, where Janey Pecqt's mettlesome personality is finally “tamed.”
As an early forerunner of the “tough love” philosophy of child rearing, Jack and Jill is indeed an interesting and entertaining read.

Peace On Earth, Good-Will To Dogs by Eleanor Hallowell AbbottNorway 1 subscribers add
“If you don’t like Christmas stories, don’t read this one!And if you don’t like dogs I don’t know just what to advise you to do!For I warn you perfectly frankly that I am distinctly pro-dog and distinctly pro-Christmas, and would like to bring to this little story whatever whiff of fir-balsam I can cajole from the make-believe forest in my typewriter, and every glitter of tinsel, smudge of toy candle, crackle of wrapping paper, that my particular brand of brain and ink can conjure up on a single keyboard! And very large-sized dogs shall romp through every page! And the mercury shiver perpetually in the vicinity of zero! And every foot of earth be crusty-brown and bare with no white snow at all till the very last moment when you’d just about given up hope! And all the heart of the story is very,—oh very young!For purposes of propriety and general historical authenticity there are of course parents in the story. And one or two other oldish persons. But they all go away just as early in the narrative as I can manage it.—Are obliged to go away! Yet lest you find in this general combination of circumstances some sinister threat of audacity, let me conventionalize the story at once by opening it at that most conventional of all conventional Christmas-story hours,—the Twilight of Christmas Eve.” (excerpt from the text)

Ina Wroldsen: HEX The PodcastNorway 1 subscribers add
My name is Ina Wroldsen and I am in your ear to tell you about HEX The Podcast.
I’ll be talking to you about myself, my creative process and what inspired my new EP, which is also called HEX. This solo project of mine has been a long time coming. I grew up behind the scenes, where, for the past 10 years, I made a career writing music and lyrics for other artists.
I got to dive undisturbed into the art of song writing, work with such talented people and experience both failings and success, all the while being completely invisible to the public eye and I wouldn’t change it for anything. However, this podcast isn’t about what I did, it’s about what I am going to do...
I have always been into bodies of work. I like stories and I think that was my biggest challenge when I was working full time as a songwriter, I simply couldn’t tell my whole story without total honesty and control. HEX is the first attempt at making a body of work in in the way that I like them and I wanted to make this podcast to tell you about what went on inside my head when I was thinking up these songs – this whole idea of HEX really.
I read all the time. Reading is good for thinking. Reading is my escape from reality.
I particularly love reading history and Folklore, it has always been a great interest of mine. Whilst folklore isn’t considered History per se, in 12th century Norway, we had actual written laws regarding folklore characters like trolls. It didn’t matter if the trolls were real, because people’s fear of them was real.
The HEX EP has 4 songs and each song has been given a character from Scandinavian folklore, each character was at some point in time conjured from human fear. I have played around with them and tried to renew the phobia they represent by placing them in our modern society, but you can’t really modernise fear. Because fear changes nothing but the shape of its exterior. At its base, it is as merciless, mind crippling and blinding as it has always been.
I’m looking forward to taking you on the journey of HEX with me.

Beyond Good and Evil by Friedrich NietzscheIndia 1 subscribers add
Beyond Good and Evil, by Friedrich Nietzsche
A searing indictment of concepts like “truth” and “language” Beyond Good and Evil, by Friedrich Nietzsche is a deeply thought provoking book that forms one of the keystones of modern thought and politics.
In this book, Nietzsche takes the position that our subservience to fixed perspectives that are forced on us by our language and our ideals make us incapable of perceiving reality. He propounds the theory that ideals are not fixed but change over time, often dramatically, and end up becoming the exact opposite of what they originally were. For instance an abstraction like “good” could mean anything depending on who is using it. Wars have been fought, people have been silenced, disease and destruction have been let loose based on what is considered “good” by certain countries and people in power. Hence, the meaning and interpretation of words really depend on the will that chooses to manipulate them. The will in turn is subject to a shifting and eternally changing viewpoint, based on the power and status of those who operate it. Nietzsche then goes on to propose a new way of thinking that goes beyond such concepts like “good” and “evil.”
These and other such concepts are a bold and revolutionary way of looking at the way human beings reflect, act and justify their actions. We begin to see the world not in terms of just linear, black and white or binary terms but as a more complex, multidimensional entity, where sometimes contradictory concepts seem to coexist.
Beyond Good and Evil is divided into nine chapters with an epilogue entitled “Aftersong – From the High Mountains” a long narrative poem in which the narrator calls upon his friends to join him on the mountain top. However, when his friends arrive, they don't recognize him. He has become hard and aggressive after living for so long in such inhospitable terrains. They begin to leave one by one and the narrator waits for new friends to arrive, as he realizes that concepts like friendship can never be fixed or eternal.
Friedrich Nietzsche was born in the old Prussian province of Saxony. His father died when Nietzsche was a child and he was brought up by his mother and her family. He attended a private school with famous contemporaries like Wagner, Krug and Pinder. His interest in music and languages was encouraged by his mother and he joined the Schulpforta where he studied several languages and got a firm grounding in poetry and music. He went on to study theology and philosophy and later joined the Prussian army. He was injured in the war and after leaving the army, began to work as a professor in Basel, Switzerland. From this time on, he was plagued by ill-health and with financial and emotional support from his friends, began to devote time to writing and compiling his thoughts on philosophy. He suffered a mental breakdown and finally died of multiple illnesses in 1900.
Many great Western philosophers like Heidegger, Foucault and Sartre owe a great deal to Nietzsche other writers like Shaw and Yeats based many of their imaginative writings on his thoughts. Freud was another pioneer who was heavily influenced by Nietzsche's concepts. Beyond Good and Evil is indeed a great addition to your collection of philosophical books.
