8 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 1,127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary chronicles the transformation of The New York Times newsroom and the inner workings of the Media Desk, as the Internet redefines the media industry by surpassing print as the main source of news. At the heart of the film is the burning question on the minds of everyone who cares about a rigorous American press, Times lover or not: what will happen if the fast-moving future of media leaves behind the fact-based, original reporting that helps to define our society? This up-close look at factors and actors that produce the "daily miracle" of a great news organization is a nuanced portrait of journalists continuing to produce extraordinary work under increasingly difficult circumstances

Fountains of Wayne by Fountains of Wayne (Musical group)( Recording )

4 editions published in 1996 in Undetermined and English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fountains Of Wayne: Chris Collingwood (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Adam Schlesinger (drums, guitar, keyboards, vocals). Additional personnel: Danny Weinkauf (bass); Dominique Durand (background vocals). Recorded at The Place, New York, New York between January and April 1996. Fountains Of Wayne provide the essential missing link between the Raspberries and Green Day: sunny, harmony-laced choruses and pure-pop song structures with a gritty, Buzzcocks-like edge provided by distorted guitars and strident drumming. Songs like "Joe Rey" and "Barbara H." strike the perfect balance between sweetness and bite. The band, from Wayne, New Jersey, is the brainchild of vocalists/multi-instrumentalists Chris Collingwood and Adam Schlesinger. Schlesinger was the composer of the Beatlesque title song of the film "That Thing You Do," and the songs on the band's self-titled debut (all Schlesinger/Collingwood cowrites) update that tune's amiable power-pop quite agreeably. The frothy pop hijinks are backed up by a keen sense of humor, as on "Leave The Biker," which finds the protagonist exhorting the object of his desire to dump her bad-boy beau in favor of his nerdish cool. The gentle, poignant "She's Got A Problem" is an affecting, sympathetic ballad that recalls the granddaddy of nerd-pop, Jonathan Richman. The coup de grace comes with "Please Don't Rock Me Tonight," a clever twist on rock and roll cliches that sounds like a sequel to the Records' classic "Starry Eyes."
Le come back by Marc Lawrence( Visual )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in French and English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il y a des jours avec et des jours sans ... et puis il ya Alex Fletcher. Aussi quand la plus aguichante reine des hit-parades demande au chanteur pop "has-been" des années 80 de lui écrire une chanson, il saisit cette offre comme un come-back de la dernière chance. L'ennui est qu'Alex jour plus facilement avec des notes de musique qu'avec les mots. C'est alors qu'entre en scène Sophie Fisher, la jeune fille qui s'occupe de ses plantes. Captivante et excentrique, elle a le verbe haut en couleur et "la main verte" pour les paroles. Ensemble, ils font tout leur possible pour obtenir le succès de cette chanson - et découvrent que si l'on veut écrire la chanson d'amour parfaite, on tombe alors facilement amoureux
