PLAYBOY : THE COMPLETE CENTERFOLDS

Description

With the first Centerfold, who just happened to be the radiant Marilyn Monroe, Hugh Hefner masterminded a cultural icon: Playboy's Playmate of the Month. Now, for the first time ever, Playboy has gathered together every Centerfold from every issue into one luxurious collector's edition. In this breathtaking tour de force, Playboy has gathered every Centerfold from every issue of the magazine since its debut in 1953. You'll see Centerfolds who went on to become big stars, such as Jayne Mansfield, Stella Stevens, Jenny McCarthy, Anna Nicole Smith, and Pamela Anderson. Printed in chronological order, these photographs - more than 600 of them - reveal an unprecedented view of our evolving appreciation of the female form, from the '50s fantasy of voluptuous blondes to the tawny beach girls of the '70s to the groomed and toned women of today.


Author

Hugh M. Hefner is editor-in-chief of Playboy magazine. Along with introductions by Hefner and art critic Dave Hickey, literary luminaries Robert Coover, Paul Theroux, Robert Stone, Jay McInerney, Daphne Merkin, and Maureen Gibbon comment on each of the six decades the book spans, speaking to the social mores and cultural climates of the times.

Description

"The piano ain't got no wrong notes!" So ranted Thelonious Sphere Monk, who proved his point every time he sat down at the keyboard. His angular melodies and dissonant harmonies shook the jazz world to its foundations, ushering in the birth of "bebop" and establishing Monk as one of America's greatest composers. Yet throughout much of his life, his musical contrbution took a backseat to tales of his reputed beharior. Writers tended to obsess over Monk's hats or his proclivity to dance on stage. To his fans, he was the ultimate hipster; to his detractors, he was temperamental, eccentric, taciturn, or childlike. but these labels tell us little about the man or his music.

In the first book on Thelonious Monk based on exclusive access to the Monk family papers and private recordings, as well as on a decade of prodigious research, prize-winning historian Robin D.G. Kelley brings to light a startlingly different Thelonious Monk - witty, ingelligent, generous, politically engaged, brutally honest, and a devoted father and husband. Indeed, Thelonious Monk is essentially a love story. It is a story of familial love, beginning with Monk's enslaved ancestors from whom Thelonious inherited an appreciation for community, freedom, and black traditions of sacred and secular song. It is about a doting mother who scrubbed floors to pay for piano lessons and encouraged her son to follow his dream. It is the story of romance, from Monk's initial heartbreaks to his lifelong commitment to his muse, the extraordinary Nellie Monk. And it is about his unique friendship with Baroness Nica de Koenigswarter, a scion of the famous Rothschild family whose relationship with Monk and other jazz musicians has long been the subject of specultation and rumor. Nellie, Nica, and various friends and family sustained Monk during the long periods of joblessness, bipolar episodes, incarceration, health crises, and other tragic and difficult moments.

Description

Originally conceived to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Columbus' discovery of America, the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893 was one of the largest (633 acres) and most influential aggregations of human talent, energy and industry ever assembled. More than 27 million visitors entered the grounds (now Jackson Park) to marvel at the exhibits and displays housed in some 200 buildings, including those of 79 foreign governments and 38 states. Although the Fair had its share of "firsts" (original Ferris wheel, first midway, Edison's kinetoscope, etc.), its chief marvel was its architecture. It is that aspect which is emphasized in this striking photgraphic record.

Beginning with an overview of the fair's planning and conceptual stages, Stanley Appelbaum's well-resarched text then proceeds to a fascinating discussion of the personalities, regional rivalries and intense controversy surrounding the Beaux-Arts architecture (the "White City" style) of the fair, including its enormous impact on subsequent American architecture. The contributions of such outstanding architects and firms as R. M. Hunt, McKim, Mead and White, Frederick Law Olmsted and Peabody and Stearns are described.

The book then becomes a building-by-building walking tour of the fair - imaginatively reconstructed with the help of 128 sharply reproduced rare contemporary photographs, printed on fine coated stock, and a concise, fact-filled text. The placid basins, ponds and Lagoon that graced the fairgrounds lend a serene aura to these priceless views of the great buildings and sights of the fair: the Beaux-Arts glories of the Administration and Agriculture Buildings; Daniel Chester French's statue of the Republic; the Columbian Fountain by Frederick MacMonnies; the Golden Door of Louis Sullivan's Transportation Building; the Peristyle; Mary Cassatt's mural in the Woman's Building; the pure classiscism of the Palace of Fine Arts (now the Museum of Science and Industry); numerous state and foreign pavilions, and of course, the Midway - the first separate amusement area at a world's fair, and the reputed location of Little Egypt's celebrated danse du ventre.

In the concluding section, the author touches on other memorable aspects of the fair and its times; the Panic of 1893; the Pullman Strike; famous visitors (Archduke Ferdinand, the Spanish Infanta, etc.); cultural and social congresses, and finally, the disastrous fires that ultimately destroyed many of the buildings. For social and cultural historians, Chicagoans, and anyone interested in the special magic of a world's fair, this book is a loving and nostalgic look back - to a time bathed in the golden light of the fin-de-siecle years, when a colossal spectacle of human achievemen in art, science and industry captured the world's attention for one magic and unforgettable moment.

Navy Pier

Navy Pier

Located just to the north of the mouth of the Chicago River, Navy Pier endures as a 3,000-foot-long exclamation mark in the Chicago tradition of public works.

Municipal Pier (renamed in 1927 to honor navy veterans of World War I) represented a compromise between the hopes of Daniel Burnham in his Plan of Chicago for two recreational piers and the city's desire for a modern harbor facility. The design by architect Charles Sumner Frost offered a little of both, with twin two-story freight and passenger sheds along with classically designed buildings at the head and foot of the pier, including an auditorium. Resting on a foundation of over 20,000 wood pilings, the pier opened in the summer of 1916 at a cost of $4.5 million.

The pier has been a jail for draft dodgers in the summer of 1918; the site of two annual Pageants of Progress (1921 and 1922); a terminus for lake excursion ships; and a convention center.

During World War II, the U.S. Navy used the pier as a training center. Afterward, the pier proved a ready facility for the University of Illinois. More than 100,000 students attended classes from 1946 to 1965.

The pier was in serious decline by the early 1970s. A refurbishing for the 1976 bicentennial revived interest in the pier, and in 1989, the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority oversaw a $200 million renovation. The result is much as Burnham envisioned, with the pier again a site for recreation.

At End of Act II:

The grand and dastardly scheme was to construct an organization to control/monetize the Orphans - might they get away with it? It seems they might - in fact everyone seems to be playing the role that was laid out for them by Google et al. As seen in the New York Times today, they may be getting what they want: "Laying out a path forward, the [Justice] department said some of its antitrust concerns could be mitigated by 'some mechanism by which Google's competitors' could gain comparable access to orphan works." If so, the plan to control and monetize would be left in place.

If this happens then we are being played for fools in someone else's play. And that will hurt access to books and book culture - past, present, and future.

With the Justice Department objection, we are just where the Google+TradeLawyers may have hoped we would be. The question now is: do we play the concluding Act III of this saga according to their script or do we build a competitive and rich digital world?


Please grant me a moment to explain.

Act I: Google makes secret agreements with libraries to scan all books, calls it "search," is greeted as a savior. When the details come out and are quite dark, it is too late as people remember it as a good thing.

Act II: Google is sued (surprise!) and secretly negotiates for maximum rights with as small a number of lawyers as possible. Having it be a class action is the stroke of genius - the parties get to rewrite copyright law. Google+TradeLawyers make a backroom deal - Google would get to solely control the out-of-print book world (most of the books of the 20th century) and the lawyers from the Authors Guild and the AAP would share tens of millions of dollars. Seems like a tidy deal. But there are two troubles - copyright and anti-trust. They need an act of Congress or the Justice Department to bless their cabal.

So where are we? They drafted a settlement that is completely self-serving, while short-changing authors, publishers, libraries, other countries, and Internet companies (if you don't believe me, please read the words of hundreds of well-reasoned objections to the suit). The Justice Department did the right thing to cry anti-trust foul about the *two* monopolies that are proposed: Google and the Books Rights Registry. But interestingly, Google could only make a settlement where they were the only beneficiary because this was done as a class-action suit. This bizarre circumstance means they could not offer their protection to any others because the others were not party to the suit and they wanted a small room to negotiate in - you can only commit others with a law or judicial approval. So they set out to allow their monopoly to be blown and still rule the day. Yes, they seem to have set this up so that they win if the Justice Department objected and said "anyone has to be able to get the deal that you got." (This idea of non-exclusive access is consistent with the rhetoric that Google has been slathering on the media for the last several months.) And then, voila, Google would fall back on the 2nd tier monopoly, the Books Rights Registry, to allow them to control all out-of-print books. Justice would then look like they got something, when in fact, they did not.

Not following me? Sorry, but let me take another shot.

Let's say the Justice Department says "anyone else should be able to do what Google has just negotiated for itself" and allows the judge to approve this complicated mess-of-a-settlement or goes to Congress who obliges with a law to that effect. Then, Google, with a five-year head start, and setting out the rules of how the Books Rights Registry works, gets to be the only compelling offering for libraries to subscribe to. If you get a five-year head start AND write the rules of the game, then if you lose, you are an idiot. And if there is something we should all be sure of, these lawyers are not idiots.

So how do we know if we are being played? At the end of the day, if the Books Rights Registry is allowed to control and collect money for the Orphan Works, then we have been had.

Remember, this is all about controlling the Orphans, or out-of-print works. These works are those that are too expensive to research to figure out if they are the property of publishers or authors or even if they knew they would want them accessible. The contracts are often hard to track down and they are not making money anyway. If an organization gets to control the orphans, then they can determine who can have a complete library and on what terms.

The Book Rights Registry that has been designed by this cabal, which would be controlled by a few of the lawyers that wrote this settlement, would control the out-of-print/Orphan works and be able to charge whatever they wanted for them.

The Internet Archive

Google, who has said they have scanned 10 million books, is off to a healthy head start. A subscription service of bundled services will favor those with the most books, hence Google wins.

So what should we do to change this outcome?

Only one thing needs to be changed: Don't let anyone control the Orphans/Out-of-print. Only if an owner comes forward and prove they own a work (with penalties for overreaching, and not just weak anyone-can-claim-anything-with-no-negative-consequences as it is proposed now) then they can negotiate for money. Otherwise Orphan/Out-of-Print works can be used by anyone, say, for non-commercial use. This is roughly how the Orphan Works legislation works, which almost made it through congress last session. But it should not be surprising that these guys are trying to substitute a closed system for that open approach.

Walter Benjamin | The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction


What would happen if no one controlled the orphans? Is would be best for the industry, best for libraries, publishers, authors, and best for the general public.

» Even Google would be better off because they would be able to make the Orphans available to everyone not just to subscribers. (Remember, they are an advertising based business.)
» The AAP would also be serving their publishers because Google would not be the only game in town to negotiate with.
» Libraries would be better off because they could digitize, preserve, and provide access to millions of digitized books for researchers historians scholars and the general public.
» The Authors Guild would be better off because they could build membership by offering to negotiate on authors behalf with many parties.
» Many author associations and registries would compete to provide good services to those that sign up with them.
» Authors would be better off because this would help create a diverse ecology of publishers, libraries, and readers.
» The general public would be better off because they would leverage many search engines and many reading devices to buy and borrow digital books from many different booksellers and libraries.
» The only loser is the Books Rights Registry, but it does not even exist yet. This would be the World Wide Web of Books that we have been dreaming of rather than a Monopoly of Books. Google has helped build momentum - let's take it the rest of the way without blowing it. This could be done by Congress or the Justice Department - both of which are working on this right now.

Free the Orphans -- stay tuned for Act III

RYAN NYP --Spirit of St. Louis-- over Paris in 1927

Lindbergh Does It! To Paris in 33 1/2 Hours; Flies 1,000 Miles Through Snow and Sleet; Cheering French Carry Him Off Field - New York Times, May 21, 1927

RYAN NYP draft

When the Ryan NYP Spirit of St. Louis classic airplane was introduced in 1927, the United States was poised on the brink of an aviation revolution. The aftermath of the flight was the "Lindbergh boom" in aviation: aircraft industry stocks rose in value and interest in flying skyrocketed. New designs were appearing, the stock-market was strong, and the nation, immersed in the giddy whirl of the 1920s, was ready to embrace a new hero.

All of these circumstance were glued together on May 20, 1927, when young Charles A. Lindbergh set off alone in his tiny, silver Ryan NYP monoplane, the Spirit of St. Louis, from Roosevelt Field, Long Island, in solo transatlantic flight to Paris (5,810 kilometers (3,610 miles) between Roosevelt Field on Long Island, New York, and Paris, France; flight time: 33 hours, 30 minutes). He had no navigator, no radio, and only the simplest of maps. Lindbergh's subsequent U.S. tour in the "Spirit of St. Louis" demonstrated the potential of the airplane as a safe, reliable mode of transportation.

When Lindbergh took the NYP on a goodwill flight to Central and South America, the flags of the countries he visited were painted on the cowling.

Following the U.S. tour, Lindbergh took the aircraft on a goodwill flight to Central and South America, where flags of the countries he visited were painted on the cowling.

Charles Lindbergh with the Spirit of St. Louis
The Ryan NYP monoplane, Spirit of St. Louis, is inextricably
linked with American aviator Charles Lindbergh. On May
21st 1927, the 25-year-old flier made the first nonstop
solo flight across the Atlantic, from New York to Paris.
(Time: 33.5 hours)

Most people believed that Lindbergh couln't possibly make the dangerous flight, which had already claimed many lives, including those of the famous ace Charles Nungesser and his navigator, Francois Coli. The trans-Atlantic flight was long and hazardous, and the Ryan had only a single engine.

But Lindbergh knew the nine-cylinder Wright Whirlwind radial was extraordinarily reliable, and he trusted it -- as well as himself.

New air route opened

NYP - Spirit of St. Louis | Registration: N-X-211 After a hazardous take-off, Lindbergh spent 33 hours and 30 minutes in a sleepy haze, well described in his 1953 book, The Spirit of St. Louis, but he overcame all obstacles to reach Paris and win the $25,000 Ortieg Prize (A prize offered by New York hotel owner Raymond Orteig to the first aviator to fly an aircraft directly across the Atlantic between New York and Paris). Although worried that there might be no one at the airport to meet him, Lindbergh landed to a huge crowd crazed with enthusiasm. The feat thrilled the world and after landing at Le Bourget Field in Paris, he suffered instant world fame and would remain in the public eye for decades. The Ryan, too, entered legend.

Lindbergh's Ryan NYP, which he called the Spirit of St. Louis, was designed by Donald Hall under the direct supervision of Lindbergh.

Ryan M-2

It is a highly modified version of a standard -- and rather pedestrian -- Ryan M-2 strut-braced monoplane, powered by the reliable Wright J-5C engine.

A long wing was built and a huge fuel capacity was installed. Because the fuel tanks were located ahead of the cockpit for safety in case of an accident, the plane had no windscreen.

NYP in flight

Visibility directly forward was impossible. If the pilot wanted an immediate view of what was ahead of him, his options were to use a periscope on the left side, or else bank the airplane and crane his head to look out from the side window. Lindbergh loved the airplane, even though it was

unstable and notoriously unpleasant to fly. He always used the term "we," meaning the plane and himself, when he referred to the flight. The Spirit of St. Louis hangs today in the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.

Spirit of St. Louis was named in honor of Lindbergh's supporters in St. Louis, Missouri, who paid for the aircraft. NYP is an acronym for "New York-Paris,"
the object of the flight.
