All I Need to Know About Filmmaking I Learned From The Toxic Avenger is Back In Print

New York, January 6, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) Returning to print, it’s ALL I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT FILMMAKING I LEARNED FROM THE TOXIC AVENGER by Lloyd Kaufman (director of The Toxic Avenger, and Poultrygeist) and James Gunn (writer of Dawn of the Dead and writer/director of Tromeo and Juliet).  It’s the book that Lloyd Kaufman wrote that James Gunn wrote.  Mr. Gunn’s career has flourished since All I Need to Know was first published in 1998, and now he’s one of Hollywood’s most sought after screenwriters and has an eagerly awaited film, Super, on the way.  Meanwhile, Lloyd Kaufman’s career has festered and has gone nowhere since 1998.  So we are pushing James Gunn here in hopes that you will review this classic book.

Mumbai, 6th December, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio / Online PR News) Eminent author and columnist Shobha De will launch, ‘P.T.O’, A Book Comprising 100 Inspiring and Humorous Quotes at Gallery BMB,Mumbai. The book is Siddharth Reddy’s debut book and a unique effort. The book has already been applauded by several dignitaries and media about its refreshing look at life.

The author began writing this book in hope to remind us, as we bustle through life, about the bigger meaning of what it truly means to be alive. To find the potential within each one of us, and in each other. To celebrate what makes us unique and what connects us as entities sharing the same existence. To find out what sets our hearts on fire, and instills peace in the mind. To encourage ourselves to see the magnificence that lies in all the potential in the universe and to create the possible out of what seems to be impossible. Having a sense of humour while we are at it only makes the whole process ultimately and uniquely human.

Suketu Mehta's Maximum City: Bombay Lost and Found | Aamir Khan in Film by Danny Boyle

By B. McEwan

Brooklyn, NY, Dec 8, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) This book is aptly titled because everything about Bombay/Mumbai does indeed sound "maximum." Twenty-three million people in a space that should accommodate more like 10 million. People living in extreme poverty, sleeping on the city's footpaths and bathing near an open sewer. Police shooting suspected criminals on sight, in what are euphemistically called "encounters." Commuters falling off the morning train because they are, literally, hanging onto the outside of the car by their fingers and toes. Bollywood film stars consorting with criminal gang members and throwing lavish parties where just the hors d'oeuvres would feed a poor man for a month.
