MONDAY 6 to 8 p.m. — “E-Book Extravaganza” for new owners of e-readers, iPads or smartphones, at North

Amis’s ‘Career Move,’” Hayes will touch on the country’s current love of celebrity over substance. Amis’ short story finds the nation vaunting poets. Producers fly them to Tinseltown, angling for merchandising and production rights while screenwriters schlep their work to literary magazines (read: highbrow periodicals that give as much attention to literary successes and missteps as People gives to the marriages of Jennifer Lopez). The free lecture and session is 7 p.m. Wednesday at

Moseley’s songs all together now

D

enton singer-songwriter Taylor Moseley has named his latest project Lil Red Button. It’s a small-sounding title for a box set chock full of music.

Taylor Moseley has enough music to fill seven discs. The Denton musician celebrates the Denton release of his box set, Lil Red Button, at Hailey’s Club on Saturday

TURN IT UP Best bets for music this weekend

Moseley releases the box set at a couple of free shows Saturday night, first at Banter and then over at Hailey’s Club. The seven discs include his EPs, Your Own Preamble, The Last Drop and The Snow Came in February; and fulllength recordings Influence, At the Moment, Taylor Moseley and B-sides Never Happen. Moseley’s folksy sound is introspective and, well, in no real hurry. With a voice reminiscent of Gordon Gano, Moseley approaches vocals as a suggestion, rather than an exact science. He started making music in school, burned out of Ryan High School before getting a

Fest solicits local ideas for topics for documentaries

T

he Thin Line Film Fest is looking for input from Denton folks. The upcoming festival, now in its fifth year as Texas’ only documentary festival, will include a filmmaking race — the Docu-Denton 7K. “Documentary filmmakers will make a film in 7,000 minutes,” said Joshua Butler, the festival founder and director. “The race starts on the first Friday of the festival and they have to finish the following

topics — assigned in a drawing — will be partially developed by festival officials. “When people find out you work in the film industry, they always say, ‘I have this idea for a

movie.’ They always have an idea. In the Docu-Denton 7K, those people can submit those ideas and they might actually get to see it become a short film,” Butler said. Festival officials will vet the topics, then make sure sources will be available for interviews during the race. “We really want to get the community involved,” Butler said. “We have some control over what gets into the drawing, so the filmmakers are getting ideas that are already partially produced. And I think people will be surprised that the crews can make good films in a limited amount of time.” — Lucinda Breeding

It’s at once raw and dreamlike, specific to a particular, personal rite of passage yet relatable in its message of being true to oneself.

Davis), will set Alike down a traditionally straight, female path, but this budding relationship only complicates matters further. Simultaneously, Alike’s home life is deteriorating, as her police officer father (Charles Parnell) begins keeping suspiciously late hours; it’s a subplot that bogs things down and feels like a distraction from Alike’s journey, a device to add tension. But Alike’s story is inspiring to see: Oduye is both melancholy and radiant in the role, and she makes you long for her character to finally find peace. Bradford Young’s awardwinning cinematography gives Pariah the gauzy, gorgeous feel of an urban fairy tale.

A change will do you good: Mix up your routine, broaden your mind with classes By Lucinda Breeding | Features Editor Admit it. You’ve been wanting to take a pottery class for years now. Or you’ve huffed and puffed away on the gym treadmill, wishing this fitness thing were somehow more fun. You don’t always hear much about them, but lifelong learning courses are perennially available at the area’s three college campuses — Denton’s University of North Texas and Texas Woman’s University and Corinth’s North Texas Central College. All three schools honor the idea of a town-and-gown partnership by bringing in teachers with special expertise so that locals can learn to dance, fix a car or throw a serving bowl without the hefty tuition that comes with more committed study. Each college’s continuing education center has already lined up a spring semester of courses that just about anyone — whether they’re retired, a stay-at-home parent or a full-time employee — can fit into their schedule. Take a look at some winners we found in course catalogs.

COVER STORY A TOOL KIT FOR BETTER RELATIONSHIPS

TAKE A BREAK FROM THE TREADMILL

What: “Achieving Success With Difficult People,” a University of North Texas minicourse Where: online When: Wednesdays and Fridays, from Jan. 18 through Feb. 24 Register: by Jan. 12 at www.ed2go.com/unt/ online_course/sdp/syllabus/Achieving_ Success_with_Difficult_People.html Fee: $89

What: “Swing Dance,” a course on the World War II-era dance for teens and adults Where: TWU’s Dance and Gymnastics Laboratory Building, located on Bell Avenue just north of Administration Drive When: 6:30 p.m. Mondays, from Jan. 23 through March 26 Register: www.twu.edu/ce/CommunityDance.asp Fee: $70

If conflict is inevitable, then learning how to work through it — and maybe even prevent it — could soothe a lot of ruffle-prone feathers. This online course is taught from a corporate point of view. But “tanks,” “exploders,” “snipers” and “know-italls” are also found on the other end of the customer service support line, around the family dinner table and among church committees. This UNT course is designed to help employees, relatives, bosses and volunteers learn how they can get out of a relational rut through learning how to best communicate with the bullies and jerks among us. And if a student should recognize that she’s a classic sniper? Well, a little self-awareness can be a good thing.

Texas Woman’s University offers community dance classes every year for all ages. Adults can learn how to dip, twirl and land safely from a lift to the sounds of Big Band jazz. Swing is a high-energy partner dance that gets pairs bebopping, Lindy Hopping and jitterbugging to blaring horns — though competitive dancers can swing to hip-hop if it has a proper backbeat. The class doesn’t require students to join with a partner, but swing dance is built for people who cut a rug without reservation. To see a full schedule of dance classes — which are set to meet weekly, Monday through Friday — visit www.twu.edu/ce/Community-Dance. asp. Adults and children can try ballet, tap, jazz and hip-hop.

GO BOWLING

ONE-POT MEALS, ON THE GO

What: “Basic Ceramics: Pottery,” a course for all skill levels Where: at NCTC’s Gainesville campus, 1525 W. California St. When: 1 to 4 p.m. Thursdays, from Jan. 26 to March 8 Register: by Jan. 23 by either mailing or hand-delivering payment and registration form to the Gainesville campus. The registration form is on Page 53 of the spring catalog at www.nctc.edu/LifelongLearning/documents/ completedschedulespring2012.pdf. Fee: $139

What: “Dutch-Oven Cooking,” a course in cooking in a Dutch oven Where: The local NCTC campus at 1404 Corinth St. When: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 28 Register: by April 25 by either mailing or hand-delivering payment and registration form to the Corinth campus. The registration form is on Page 53 of the spring catalog at www.nctc.edu/LifelongLearning/documents/ completedschedulespring2012.pdf. Fee: $55

This course will show aspiring potters how to handle clay and how to throw clay on a wheel to make a vessel. Most of the class time will be dedicated to throwing wheel forms. The pottery wheel is considered to be a fussy tool that requires neophytes to get comfortable with it before finding the best speed and techniques for the individual artist. All students need to bring with them is an open mind, and be dressed in grubby clothes. Pottery on the wheel is muddy work — hands will get dirty.

No, this isn’t a class to teach gourmands about how to make the best of that pricey Le Creuset Dutch oven. This class is to teach campers and backyard adventurers how to make a meal with a pot or two, some nice, hot coals (or canned fuel) and fresh ingredients. This class will cover stews and dishes that revive the body on a camping trip, or meals that feed a fleet of enthusiastic drivers and passengers as they return to the RV campground. Students can bring their own Dutch ovens — heavy cast iron pots that roast meats and heat stews slowly and yield full-bodied flavors — or use one provided by the instructor. And chances are, home cooks can make the same recipes on the stove top with an indoor Dutch oven.
