A song book that highlights that inside everyone there is a perfect and loving heart, and that if we uncover our perfection and recognise it in others we can change the world for the better. The song takes you through the personal journey of a little monster who discovers his self worth is not defined by his physical characteristics or by the definitions placed on him by others, but by how he allows his light and love to shine. Once he understands his own value he is able to see the perfection in others even when they are hurtful. He then goes on to show that if we all recognised the perfection in each other and acted from a place of love we can change the world to a better place. "Let us live the perfection that we are and uncover ourselves to shine like a star. Our potential never stops to spread love on this earth, it is why we are here, it is the reason for our birth."

The Singing Cowboys is a nostalgic, back-in-the-saddle examination of the musical B-Western films of the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s and the singing cowboys that made them so popular. The author, David Rothel, spent a fondly remembered portion of his youth sitting in the Lincoln Theatre in Elyria, Ohio, where the singing cowboys-Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Tex Ritter, and all the rest-played out their adventures and yodeled their songs on the silver screen. Thousands, perhaps millions, of youngsters from that era shared this common experience during their formative years. First published in 1978, The Singing Cowboys has been out of print for many years. Now, Riverwood Press in association with The Lone Pine Museum of Western Film History has republished the book in an updated, expanded, and repackaged edition. We hope you enjoy!

This book is about the fundamentals of live sound engineering and is intended to supplement the curriculum for the online classes at the Production Institute (www.productioninstitute.com/students). Nonetheless, it will be invaluable for beginning sound engineers and technicians anywhere who seek to expand their knowledge of sound reinforcement on their own. Written with beginners and novices in churches and convention centers in mind, this book starts by teaching you professional terminology and the processes of creating production related documents used to communicate with other sound engineers, vendors and venues. Subjects such as Signal Path and AC (alternating current) power safety and distribution are closely examined. These two subjects are closely related to the buzzing, humming and other noise related phenomena that often plague sound reinforcement systems. Chapters include an in-depth review of both analog and digital mixing consoles, their differences and similarities, and the gain structure fundamentals associated with the proper operation of either type of mixing console. Audio dynamic processors such as compressors, limiters and noise gates and their operation are explained in detail. Audio effects like delay and reverb are examined so that you can learn the basics of "sweetening" the mix to create larger and more emotive soundscapes and achieve studio-like outcomes in a live sound environment. Advanced mixing techniques, workflow, and the conventional wisdom used by professional audio engineers are explained so you don't have to spend years trying to figure out how these processes are achieved. Last but not least, a comprehensive review of acoustic feedback, and how to eliminate it from stage monitors and main speaker systems are detailed in a step by step process. This book will be especially helpful to volunteer audio techs in houses of worship, convention centers and venues of all types. It will bridge the gap between the on-the-job training that beginners receive and the knowledge and conventional wisdom that professional sound engineers employ in their daily routine.

It's 1937, the eve of World War II. At twenty-six years old, Rezsi Lehrer leaves Munkacs, a small charming city located deep within a remote corner of the Carpathian mountains and travels alone to the United States. War breaks out and Eastern European borders are sealed. Rezsi's family is trapped in Czechoslovakia and the packages she sends home are returned unopened. When the war ends, Rezsi discovers her parents, two brothers and scores of relatives perished in the Holocaust. Gypsy Music Street is the story of one woman's endless sorrow and guilt she suffers at the loss of her family, the family she left behind "to die alone." Yet she still yearns to return to her town, "the little Paris of the East," to see it just one more time. But after the war, countries borders are redrawn and Mukacevo is no longer located in Czechoslovakia. It becomes completely closed off within the iron grip of the Soviet Union and the political climate is one of Cold War. Mukacevo is off limits for travel. As the years pass, Rezsi reminisces, sharing her longing and grief about the past with her daughter Bobbie. And when she dies an old woman, her dream unfulfilled, Bobbie is driven by her own loss and grief to make this journey home for her mother, and for herself. Adventures in Budapest, Ukraine and Israel make Gypsy Music Street an enthralling memoir of love and loss. Yet, it is also a story of the overwhelming joy a daughter experiences when she travels back in time and discovers her own torn roots.
