Now in paperback, after five months on the New York Times bestseller list, with more than 1.5 million copies sold, Joel Osteen’s Become a Better You inspires readers to live a life filled with hope, purpose, and victory.
This movie is about a millionaire called Evan Holloway, who publishes a magazine called Passion. That's a good thing, because millionaires pay a lot of taxes, and then the government uses that money to take care of those who are less fortunate. Also, while I prefer Joel Osteen-books myself, publishing printed material is OK by me, if it's educational. And this one seemed to be, since it's called Passion, and I think we all have a passion for something (the film's title is just a very clever pun, by the way, the Passion magazine isn't actually about murder).
6th Full-Length Album. Devildriver overlord Dez Farara will readily acknowledge the basic tenet of heavy metal is to achieve the essence of power and complete freedom. At the most base level, it’s a concept that can manifest itself in the form of a high-speed joyride or defeating one’s antagonists, be they Frank Frazetta-rendered warriors or the guy/girl who was looking at your lover too long at the biker bar and now has a concussion and a collection of broken pool cues. On Devildriver’s sixth release, Winter Kills, the band certainly didn’t skimp on the riffage, the idling-dragster tempos or the sheer sonic drive that makes them one of heavy music’s respected outfits. Winter Kills is all about the creation of flashover moments to empower people with hope and affirmation—or at the very least, the inspiration for people to create great work and engineer their own meaningful universes. This ain’t no tired Tony Robbins posi-posturing or Joel Osteen’s cartoony, cash-and-Christ posing. The world got more oppressive, and Devildriver are stepping up their game to keep hope alive in the most bone-powdering, cochlea-bleeding, neck-snapping way possible.
The Stranger is the fifth studio album by American singer-songwriter Billy Joel, released on September 29, 1977, by Columbia Records.
