Sleepless in Hollywood : tales from the new abnormal in the movie business by Lynda Rosen Obst( Book )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By the author of the bestseller Hello, He Lied, a veteran producer takes a witty look at the new Hollywood. Lynda Obst returns to dish on the experts, tastemakers, and moguls of today's Hollywood and the movies they make. She describes how the movie business has lost its MO--and is now losing its talent to network and especially cable TV. With the collapse of the DVD market, the movie industry was crippled. The business reacted by producing tentpoles (mega-hits) or tadpoles (which nobody gets a chance to see). Why? Since the majority of their revenue comes from the foreign market, especially China and Russia, studios are no longer dependent on expensive stars or dialogue (i.e. writers). Special effects and 3D replace people. Obst speaks from the front lines. Her subjects are friends, moguls, former employers, mentors, and even relatives, who express their opinions with disarming bluntness and hilarity. Obst combines her experiences with insights from the smartest people in the business. In what Obst calls the New Abnormal (because Hollywood wasn't normal to begin with), studios are paralyzed. Can the movie business be resurrected? Can it once again make the movies that make us laugh, cry, and wish we could own the DVD? Obst is ready"--

Everything I want to eat : Sqirl and the new California cooking by Jessica Koslow( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jessica Koslow and her restaurant, Sqirl, are at the forefront of the California cooking renaissance, which is all about food that surprises us and engages all of our senses--it looks thoughtfully composed, tastes vibrant, and feels substantial yet refreshing. ln a city as diverse as Los Angeles, where everyone is known to be obsessively health-conscious and where dietary restrictions are the norm, the food at Sqirl invites both bacon-lovers and vegans to the same table. With this spirit of inclusion and accommodation, Koslow shares more than 100 fresh, market-driven, and flavorful recipes that can be adjusted to suit the needs of vegetarians, followers of gluten-free diets, or whomever you're sharing your meal with. Everything I Want to Eat captures the excitement of the food at Sqirl while also offering inspired ideas on how to make these dishes your own. It's an entirely new kind of cookbook and approach to how we are all starting to think about food: deeply personal and endlessly adaptable."--Jacket
