At first I was hesitant because I can't believe that there is such as thing as learning crochet in just one day. But I promised my sister that I will support her out because she's expecting. I gave her the book and it was really simple to understand. The instructions are very clear. This is now one of her favorite hobbies.
I have gotten several beginner crochet books for free on my Kindle. This one is hands down THE BEST. The directions are clear; the pictures are good. I highly recommend is to every beginner!!!!
In my childhood my granny taught me how to crochet.. I've already forgotten a lot of things but I've decided to take it up again. It's a clearly-written tutorial for beginners. It runs about the types of yarn, hooks, patterns, ere are unbelievable illustrations that create the whole process much easier. I hope I'll master crochetting very soon with the support of this book. Crochetting helps me to abstract myself from everyday routine. Recommended.
A amazing book to begin with, once I saw the detailed instructions, the images that assure you do the right thing and the various patterns taught in this book, I recommended it to whomever wants to learn this e author wrote it excellent and the title is accurate!
A nice book for beginners. Teaches quite few techniques and easy starter projects. I'm not a beginner and was hoping for a few more projects but am not sorry I chose this book.
There are several projects from very simple to intermediate. The pictures are very helpful. I think any beginner would be very satisfied with this book because it covers everything you need to know.
It really works. In one day I was able to crochet a men's watch hat. The picutres and explainations in the book helped me a lot. Thank you. The book is highly recommened.
> A wrong timeline, but a hilarious adventure! I remember seeing the French ver of this movie on the tv when I was a kid, but don't recall much other than two men from the medieval in the roads of the modern world. Somehow I found this, and after some research I chose this ver to watch which I thought simple to understand, as well as for the reason some updates were created in this. Well, I know nothing can beat the original, but for those haven't seen the original, this is not a poor one. Quite an enjoyable movie with a easy theme and a easy adventure. Seems a very familiar concept, but surely a special product. Jean Reno was brilliant and so his sidekick and other supporting characters. Top notch jokes, felt like I had some loud laughs after a long time. Of course, there are some flaws, but minors, like relocating from Europe to the US since it is a Hollywood production. It is a time travel theme in fantasy. There's no time machine, instead a wizard behind the adventure through the time. A excellent family film. It's not about prediction, since watching the first stage you would know what follows it and how it all ends. So you're relieved from guessing items and can sit back relaxedly and have fun it as much you can. It is your average film, but if you're seeking a amazing comedy, then it is surely above that. There are thousands of masterpiece comedies, this is not one of them, though must see from this genre. 7/10
Patti Smith's book is beautiful, and moving - a poem to art and friendship. Charting her relationship with photographer, Robert Mapplethorpe from the time she bumps into him in late 60s Greenwich Village to his untimely death in the latest year of the 80s, it provides a vivid and fascinating insight into the alternative Fresh York arts stage of the times and the wonderful evolution of her very unusual musical is is not a biography or a rock and roll `tell all.' It is a very human memoir of the highs and lows of a friendship, a relationship and a mutual commitment to artistic vision. Smith's basic concern in this book is painting a true and complex picture of life as an artist and of Mr Mapplethorpe and her life with him in it. The atmosphere and changes of these two decades in Fresh York, the luminaries at play in it, her childhood and adolescence before she arrived in the huge city, the melody stage she almost accidentally became part of through her poetry and her eventual family life outside the town are stirring and evocative backdrop.What is quite surprising, for someone who has been a somewhat confronting artist at times, is the relative naivety and wide-eyed sense of wonder in her early story. Her prose is extremely literate and novel-like. She is deft in her portrait of Mapplethorpe as a beautiful, vulnerable soul and a sometimes selfish and difficult, conflicted person. And at the same time, she ensures she is just as probing of her own personality. Her focus is on two people, rather than on any examination of celebrity or hedonistic expose of fame - though that flavours the story without pulling focus. In the end there is something transcendent and kind of wistful about 'Just Kids'. You wouldn't even need to know who these two people are to have fun this book. It is never anything short of riveting.
Just finished the book a few days ago. First off, I have never heard of these two artists and had never been interested in their genre of art and music. But since I lived during the 60's and 70's close to Fresh York and Philadelphia I thought it might be a amazing read. Actually, I fell in love with these two characters and could not place the book down. It is extremely well written and portraits literally what two determined struggling artists would be going through. To follow their calling and live initially in such depressing circumstances to fulfill their dreams of "making it" is truly inspiring. And yes, a number of names mentioned in the book were familiar to me. This is an perfect book about determination and sacrifice in pursuit of art.
Artist and muse, muse and artist. Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe shared a love that built the foundations and scaffolds for their artistic careers and far outlived their romance. Patti tells their story in a voice that's intelligent, direct, and self-aware. Highly recommended if you're in the mood to contemplate what it takes for a couple of scrappy children to dedicate their lives to art, or what it takes to love someone exactly the method they are, or celebrity gossip from the '70s.
I'm neither a fan nor very familiar with Patti Smith beyond her put in melody history, but I thoroughly enjoyed her acc of her relationship with Maplethorpe and the evolution of her musical career. I do recommend this book to both fans and those interested in the evolution of an artist.
I agree with most reviewers who found Patti Smith's memoir of her early years in Fresh York and her acc of her relationship with artist/photographer Robert Mapplethorpe to be moving. Besides her depiction of her muse-artist relationship with Mapplethorpe (each was the other's muse), I liked reading about Fresh York in the 70s, a put and a time like none other. This book seems to fall into a genre I'm finding especially compelling these days--the dual biography. These tend to be less bogged down by detail and obtain right to the essence of what makes their topics biography-worthy. If you're interested in dual biographis of artits, check out Tom and Jack: The Intertwined Lives of Thomas Hart Benton and Jackson Pollock and Elaine and Bill [de Kooning]: Portrait of a Marriage (now out of print).My warning to Kindle readers: The Kindle edition does not contain any of the photographs found in the print edition. These aren't essential to understanding Smith's narrative, but it would have been nice to see them as I was reading the book, especially since some were likely Mapplethorpe's.
I could not place this book down. Beautifully written and deeply private and emotional. I grew up while Patti and Robert were, but in a completely various reality. I have known of Patti since she emerged as a musician in the 70s, but the rest of her story is fascinating and somehow wonderful. Thank you Patti for sharing - I am so moved and in love all over again with your singular artistry.
I enjoyed the book, but in a voyeuristic way. The icons of that era are all on display or pass through its chapters. I was struck by the character worship that Smith and others had for Andy Warhol -- who is an ethereal presence throughout much of the book, but never really seen -- and Bob Dylan and others. The dangerous behavior of Mapplethorpe and his associates that was the norm for those times, and the scruffy and scrappy day-to-day existence of a lot of of the key figures of that era, are graphically portrayed. I would have loved more pictures and even some audio links in the Kindle edition, and wished I could have seen and heard more of the happenings and people described by Smith, whose writing style is direct and unpretentious. One marvels that she ever created it through that era of her life physically and mentally intact.
I like it... though I think the fawning reviews are overdone. Patti Smith can write and has some cool stories, but this isn't a book that's going to give you amazing insight or change you. She happened to be in the center of rock & art movements, so she tells the stories of people you've heard about. Her love affair with Robert Mapplethorpe has created people think she somehow has the key to understanding that era. I don't think she does, nor do I fee this will stand the try of time as a amazing read. I can't search any reason this won a National Book Award (other than the fact that "Patti Smith is cool.") Again, I liked it. I just think the praise is overdone.
Just Children by Patti Smith is a rare small gem. To me, Patti Smith has always exuded a punk rock swagger, an only half-bridled aggression. I see her, and I see only the hard, sharp angles of her. And Robert Mapplethorpe: leather, whips, unapologetic sex acts with a peculiar defiant dignity to them. Both of them are monsters who seem to have been launched straight from the scene, fully-formed and antagonistic right from the start.But they weren't. Just Children is a memoir by Patti Smith about her time living in Fresh York with Robert Mapplethorpe while they were both shaking off the dull scraps of adolescence and trying to break out as artists. Strewn throughout the book are pictures of them as very young excitable artists-in-training joined at the ith's prose reads like a soft-focus fairy tale. The sections set in the Chelsea Hotel, especially, have an almost Dickensian quality to them; they read as a quaint story full of larger-than-life characters, most of whom have hearts firmly of gold. Reconciling this wistful retelling of her youth with the persona I associate with her was intriguing to say the least. And obviously I am not the only one who found the disconnect between Patti Smith's presence and her internal life jarring - there are locations in the text where she discusses how those around her took her for a lesbian (she is straight), or a junkie (she seems not to have experimented with pot until she'd moved out of the Chelsea). Her prose is light and airy, and her memories sepia-tinged and wholesome, despite the fact that anyone who knows the history of that stage knows just how much death and self-immolation is event just off screen. Patti Smith herself seems to have waltzed through it unscathed, and her writing dances along the edges of the darkness that her stage held*. Without the debauchery, the excess, the Chelsea Hotel in the 70s reads as an almost Victorian e book is structured in a circle: it opens with the moment Smith hears of Mapplethorpe's death, then jumps back in time before they have met. Smith discusses her teenage pregnancy and the process of giving her kid up for adoption, her failure at teacher's school, and her time on a Fresh Jersey assembly line in a brisk and somewhat sanitized fashion; again, there seems to be in her writing a distaste for discussions of the negative, of the hard and bleak moments of her life. From there, the book jumps forward to her first meeting with Mapplethorpe, their sweet and heartfelt romance, the small poverty-stricken life they build together, and how hard they worked to evolve their relationship with each other when their life trajectories began to diverge. The book ends with a far jump into the future, back to those latest few weeks of Mapplethorpe's life and ends with his inevitable death, right back where the book ven that the book is told from Smith's perspective, it is perhaps not surprising that her motives and desires are clear throughout, but over the course of the book Mapplethorpe becomes more and more opaque. A boy who seems easy when she first meets him grows into a man full of contradictions. The person whose viewpoints and life goals seemed to mirror hers so closely at first winds up yearning to be part of the social circles that Smith herself actively avoids. It became increasingly unsettling as I read the book. What does he obtain from her that keeps him around? How does he see her and their ever-changing relationship? Very small is explored here in the text, and Smith herself seems to take their relationship at face value, as a thing complete in itself with small context surrounding it. It just is for her, and her wholesale acceptance of it is so radically various from the method I, personally, live out my significant life-altering relationships that it was hard for me to understand at times what their relationship was exactly. But there is an authenticity to her writing that explains the halcyon haze through which she remembers that time of her life. That period, above anything else, was her period with Robert Mapplethorpe, for whom she had a love so total and accepting it is essentially blank, without specificities, and all the hardness of that time is drowned out in remembrance of him.Just Children is, like most memoirs, ultimately a work that says as much or more about its author than the topic matter itself. The story there is as much in the telling as it is in the content. And it's a fascinating look into the mind of a woman who is so very various than the person I assumed her to be. It is a love letter to the late Robert Mapplethorpe, but it's a love letter to her young self, as well. I can't support but want there had been some balance to it, some acknowledgment of the difficulties of living so poor, or of loving a man who seems to fall into and out of and into and out of love with her, or of the pain of watching her mates obtain consumed by drugs right in front of her, but that's not the book she wrote. It may not be a book she's able to write. I can't support but think of her as an unreliable narrator for her own life, but ultimately that's what we all are. It's hard to tell the bald truth about your own life. It might be impossible. But still, the unanswered questions nag at me. I found this book absolutely fascinating, but when it was over, it felt insubstantial. But that doesn't mean it's not worth reading.*Swimming Underground by Mary Woronov of Warhol's Factory squad is a bird's eye acc of the dark addictions Patti Smith seems to prefer to hold just out of frame. I highly recommend it, too, and it works as a very interesting counterbalance to Just Kids.
The book wasn't a biography of Robert Mapplethorpe or Patty Smith. The stories went from one to the other. They were close, but it didn't mean one pined for the other. It didn't prevent them from going off on their own. I wasn't sure how close they would they get. I think the writing was very good. I thought it would be more than episodes.
Staff is responsive and is genuinely concerned about making a amazing application to support people. I have been successful already as a donor and a loving couple is going to be a family soon. I never would have met them without this app. Its an wonderful opportunity to support people.
Seems like a really amazing application without the unnecessary restrictions that usually come along with this sort of thing. Too poor there's no one in my zone though. This application has potential, they need to shop themselves more so this becomes popular. I know there are people near me wanting this same thing because of www services like co-parents.
For it just being an app, I'm surprised how a lot of people wish to support one another. For me, going through an agency felt to impersonal and it got very pricey, but with this app, I obtain to talk one on one with people who are willing to support me achieve my dream.
This application is going to be awesome once more people join. It's such a amazing free method to connect with others. Some find functions need to be improved and it will be extremely useful. The founders are very responsive to messages and interested in hearing feedback. Love it!
Perfect idea! Thanks to the creators who continue improving it. BtW I had some questions and they answer really quick! The Application works fine and give us a possibility to search a potential donor. Hope people take this seriously ... Is about people's dreams and life's.
Think it's a amazing idea for an application just a pitty it doesn't work. Logged in with Fb asked for my zone then wouldn't allow me obtain past the first screen were I had to add my gender and dob etc. If it helps, im using a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 - from one developer to another :)
Sweet app. I'm begin to parenting and potentially being a donor so very satisfied there's now an simple and free method to discover the possibilities of helping others as well as starting a family. Some of my mates have fertility problems too, now that we are in our 30s its fairly common,so I'm def going to tell them about the application as Ive seen all types of people on there offering to support out. Thanks for taking the initiative
