Primer is set in the industrial park/suburban tract-home fringes of an unnamed contemporary city where two young engineers, Abe and Aaron, are members of a small group of men who work by day for a large corporation while conducting extracurricular experiments on their own time in a garage. While tweaking their current project, a device that reduces the apparent mass of any object placed inside it by blocking gravitational pull, they accidentally discover that it has some highly unexpected capabilities - ones that could enable them to do and to have seemingly anything they want. Taking advantage of this unique opportunity is the first challenge they face. Dealing with the consequences is the next.
STEHKONZERT ? The British Jazzexplosion ? forum jazz e. V. präsentiert: THEON CROSSDie renommierte britische Zeitung THE GUARDIAN widmete im April 2018 der brodelnden Londoner Jazzszene einen großen Artikel. Einer der neuen Stars ist der Tubist Theon Cross 27, der etwa dem Sound der Band Sons of Kemet um den Saxophonisten Shabaka Hutchings seinen melodiös-massiven Herzschlag verleiht. In seinem Stil kreuzen sich die Walking-Bass-Lines eines Paul Chambers mit Einflüssen aus Clubsounds wie Garage, Grime und Dubstep. Die Tuba fristete ein Nischendasein im Jazz, doch Theon Cross hat ihr Image gehörig entmottet. Auf seinem Debütalbum ?Fyah? zeigt der Londoner Musiker, wie vielseitig das Instrument ist, von melodischen Bassklängen bis groovendem Funk.Activate heißt der Opener auf seinem Album. Ein Wort, das sich vielfältig übersetzen lässt: Mit aktivieren natürlich, aber etwa auch mit freischalten, auslösen, in Gang setzen, entsichern oder erregen. Wer das Stück einmal gehört hat, weiß wie passend der Titel gewählt wurde. ?Für mich ist die Tuba ein äußerst vielseitiges Instrument?, sagt Theon Cross. ?Sie lässt sich sowohl als melodischer Bass wie auch als Perkussionsinstrument einsetzen. Interessant finde ich auch, dass der akustische Klang der Tuba manchmal ganz ähnlich wie die Synthesizer-Sounds in der elektronischen Musik klingt. Sie ermöglicht mir, eine Vielzahl von Stilen in meine Musik zu integrieren? Keine Frage: Theon Cross wird am 24. September die Besucher mitreißen und das FORUM Merzhausen zum Kochen bringen. Das Quartett wird mit Tuba (Theon Cross), Drums, Saxophone und Gitarre zu hören sein.?A consistently exciting, and undeniably impressive, album that combines an edgy, urban, contemporary urgency with supreme musicality?. (The Jazzman)

For years, Elizabeth Lyons has been asked how she does it all. Whether she's negotiating a truce between her 10- and five-year-old while eulogizing goldfish, swinging a sledgehammer in her garage-to-be-nursery, bribing her twins to keep their pants on in the grocery store, planning her product line, strategically placing carrot seeds in her garden, receiving life lessons from her oldest daughter, or explaining to her kids why a fellow post office patron has pierced nipples, Elizabeth has discovered that the secret to navigating the land of euphoria and hysteria is a carefully crafted set of rules - for herself! You Cannot Be Serious is a contemporary and humorous roadmap for "doing it all" that any woman can relate to for untying her own "nots." And for moms who lie awake at night wondering if their sanity will remain intact until the kids move out, Lyons provides a girlfriend-to-girlfriend guide, not just for getting through each day, but for being able to say with conviction, "I love my life." "Elizabeth is Tina Fey channeling Dear Abby while raising five kids and running a syndicated advice column." (Jenna McCarthy, best-selling author) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elizabeth Lyons.
