As an ordained Deacon of 22 years, it truly amazes me how Deacon Bernard Swift can put into writing all the concepts and truths that he shares to help others live a healthy and intimate relationship and spirituality with our God. It compels me to delve deeper into the very depth of my inner self. —Deacon Fred Von Voight Deacon Bernie Swift’s recent spiritual book, Will Thinking It Is Make it So?, is a must read for the Christian soul. It is a brilliant and simplistic explanation of how thought plays a powerful role in one’s relationship, or lack there of, with our Creator. —Tom Keysor, a Lord’s daily Altar Server, Lector, Eucharistic Minister, International Pilgrimage Tour Host, and humble believer in the true faith - Catholicism

The evil that triumphed during that long-ago summer in Whitfield is festering now in the unsuspecting town of Logandale. Only Sam and Nydia Balon, lone survivors of the ancient horror, know the signs—the putrid stench rising from the bowels of the earth, the unspeakable, inexplicable atrocities, the hideous, horrifying Beasts—that mark the foul presence of the Prince of Darkness. Only they have the weapons that can pierce . . . The Devil’s Heart Once the carnage begins, there’s no time for anything but terror. Hollow-eyed, hungry corpses rise from unearthly tombs to gorge themselves on living flesh and spawn a new generation of restless Undead. The very demons of Hell cavort with Satan’s unholy disciples in blood-soaked rituals and fevered orgies. The Balons have faced the red, glowing eyes of The Master before, and they know what must be done. But there can be no salvation for those marked by . . . The Devil’s Touch

Remembering the Man and Those Who Surrounded Him

Author: Charles E. Dagit, Jr.

Publisher: Transaction Publishers

ISBN: 1412851238

Category: Architecture

Page: 144

View: 3487

Few people in the history of art and architecture have planted a seed of inspiration that grew to become a towering oak of lasting influence. There are those, particularly colleagues and students of Louis I. Kahn, who would say that he was one of these people. Certainly Kahn was one of the foremost architects of the twentieth century, designing such famous landmarks as the National Assembly Building in Dhaka, Bangladesh; the Salk Institute in La Jolla, California; and the Kimbell Museum in Fort Worth, Texas. In this commemorative volume, Charles E. Dagit, Jr. shows the power and influence that Kahn displayed at the University of Pennsylvania department of architecture in the 1960s. Since Dagit knew Kahn personally, this is a factual history as well as a glimpse into Kahn’s personal wisdom and humanity. Beginning with a prelude that starts with the author’s undergraduate years at the University of Pennsylvania, Dagit launches readers on an intellectual journey of how he first met Kahn. From there he details his experiences with Kahn and explores Kahn’s interactions with Penn faculty members, including Mario Romanach, Robert Le Ricolet, and Aldo Giurgola. This first-hand account sheds fascinating new light on one of the most prominent architects of the twentieth century.

Music of the Avant-garde, 1966–1973

“Source: Music of the Avant-garde, 1966-1973 brings its extraordinary, historical explorations and experimentations to a new audience of contemporary music devotees, researchers, composers, students, and educators. This welcome volume reproduces Source's original, provocative issues in an unparalleled repository of articles, scores, graphics, photos, editorials, and reviews, featuring contributions by some of the 20th century’s leading experimental and pioneering composers and performers. Larry Austin and Douglas Kahn have provided us with a true gem and an invaluable resource for future study.” —Elainie Lillios, Associate Professor of Composition at Bowling Green State University “Source was an audacious piece of new music entrepreneurship that could only have happened in the 1960s. I well recall discovering it in the stacks at the university library, flipping the pages and learning that you could just jump right off the edge of the known musical world. This was not a journal that provided information or mere perspectives on new music: it showed you the music itself. It brought you into direct contact with the excitement, provocation, beauty, audacity, ingenuity, and insight of the leading experimental musicians of the day. You might be offended, intrigued, inspired, amused, baffled, but the point was that you were right in there, seeing what was going on and deciding for yourself what you wanted to make out of it. How wonderful it is for this liberating historical moment to be reincarnated; who knows what musical adventures this re-publication will inspire.” —James Pritchett, author of The Music of John Cage “This long awaited reissue of important documents from the late 1960s, including graphic scores, essays, and articles, is an indispensable anthology of cross-disciplinary ideas about music and composition. This is a fascinating treasure trove of musical counterculture, absolutely relevant today.” —Christian Marclay, visual artist and composer “Source was an essential document of its time, a music magazine that made beautiful music—and beautiful art. This was one of the reasons why I was delighted to be able to reissue all the recordings on a three CD set on Pogus. This book now puts all the print issues in one’s hand, bringing us as close to having Source again as we are ever likely to get." —Al Margolis, Pogus Productions (www.pogus.com) “There was a glorious moment at the cusp of the 1970s when all our musical road maps became obsolete overnight. Young composers relied instead on the accounts of voyageurs, many of which were printed in the pages of Source. Austin and Kahn’s meticulous compendium carries us back to that heady, pre-Web time when anything seemed possible.” —Nicolas Collins, Editor-in-Chief, Leonardo Music Journal
