We live in a world of extreme polarization. We are constantly bombarded with opinions and arguments. As a result, church culture can become segregated from the rest of the world.

But Jesus walked on both sides of the dividing line. He spoke with religious people, and he ate with town rejects. What if God’s truth is somewhere between the division?

Unbalanced takes a close look at what we’ve separated over, what the church has gotten right and wrong, and where Jesus stands in the middle of it all.

3. The Pink Marine: One Boy’s Journey Through Boot Camp To Manhood

by: Greg Cope WhiteNorman Lear
Release date: Feb 07, 2016
Number of Pages: 265

Read Review
The Pink Marine is the story—full of hilarity and heartbreak—of how a teenage boy who struggles with self-acceptance and doesn’t fit the traditional definition of masculinity finds acceptance and self-worth in Marine Corps boot camp.

“An inspiring memoir that displays a balanced, surprisingly reverent view of the Marine Corps and military service.” Kirkus Reviews

When Greg Cope White’s best friend tells him he’s spending his summer in Marine Corps boot camp at Parris Island, South Carolina, all Greg hears is ‘summer’ and ‘camp’. Despite dire warnings from his friend, Greg vows to join him in recruit training.

He’s eighteen, underweight, he’s never run a mile-and he’s gay.

Greg’s sheltered life hadn’t prepared him for military service. A prince out of water, he packed five suitcases since he’d never been away from home for thirteen weeks. The U.S. Marines stripped him from all of that, shaved his head and put a rifle in his hands.

At first he struggles to keep up, and afraid his secret will be discovered. But midway through, the desire to survive and become a Marine trumps fear. He learns that everyone, just like in the real world, comes into the service feeling ‘different’; possibly prejudged for the color of their skin, their weight, their poverty–some have even chosen boot camp over jail.

Can a flighty, 112-pound, unmanly Texan transform into one of the few, the proud, the Marines?

Will Greg even survive?

Advanced Praise for The Pink Marine

“A great story beautifully told-surprising, funny, courageous and inspiring.” David Hyde Pierce

“Greg is as inspirational as he is hilarious–I love this book!” Margaret Cho, Comedienne (Dr. Ken, Drop Dead Diva)

“Marine Corps boot camp was the toughest thing I ever did. I had to cope with being skinny, weak, and timid in a place that demanded strength, confidence, and fearlessness. But I didn’t have to cope with being gay or having to hide who I actually was… The Pink Marine is a wonderful book and I’m proud to be Greg Cope White’s fellow jarhead.” Jim Beaver, Actor/U.S. Marine (Justified, Deadwood)

“For five years, on a television show called Covert Affairs, I had the privilege of pretending to be a member of the U.S. military. For six years, in the United States Marines, my friend Greg pretended to be straight. He wins. The Pink Marine will inspire you, make you laugh, and remind you of what’s important in this life.”  Christopher Gorham, Actor (Covert Affairs, Popular, Ugly Betty)

“If you’re searching for the next great memoir, it’s arrived. Greg Cope White’s The Pink Marine is both funny and relentlessly honest. If we have any reason to celebrate the imposed silence of President Clinton’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, The Pink Marine is it. If Greg had talked back then, we wouldn’t have this book now. The Marines got a great soldier out of it. And we civilians got a great author.” Peter MacNichol, Actor (Numb3rs, Ally McBeal)

Fisher Stanton, Valley High School’s Nantucket wannabe, has a cheating girlfriend. When he hires Darcy Walker to chase her to a local club, in true Darcy fashion she stumbles upon a dead body. Thing is, this body has secrets…and Darcy’s mysterious friend, Jaws, and the reporter, Tito Westbrook, have a vested interest. Both enlist Darcy to find the person responsible who has eluded them for years, but Darcy doesn’t solve crimes for free anymore–especially where Jaws is concerned. Knowing Darcy’s Achilles heel, Jaws blackmails Darcy into working for him.

In a true test of wills, Darcy and Jaws battle head-to-head—Jaws needs Darcy to help him end a bitter grudge war; Darcy needs Jaws to divulge the mystery surrounding her mother’s death. Haunted by a past that shapes her present, Darcy will stop at nothing to get answers. Even if it means breaking the law and being disloyal to her new boyfriend, Dylan Taylor, in the process.

DEFCON DARCY gives Darcy’s demons a name and ties up loose ends that make Darcy into the verb that she is. What she thinks she knows as truth, isn’t. What she wishes wasn’t true…is.

The problem is, when your life goes DEFCON 1, not everyone lives to tell about it.

Teacup is an acquisitioner, not a thief. Admittedly, the nuance doesn’t play well with the town authorities, but as long as the kids get fed and nobody notices the little odds and ends that keep disappearing, he can ignore his nagging conscience. Unfortunately, staying gainfully employed has become increasingly difficult ever since his misunderstanding with the assassins’ guild.

When the dark guild sends a pair of magii to polish him off, Teacup decides there’s no shame in seeking sanctuary in Fortrus, a city built up around the greatest abbey of the Paladins. He’s always preferred a quiet retreat anyway. Loaded down with dark relics, his kids, and an injured knight, Teacup takes to the road in search of safety, redemption, and a good night’s sleep.

But, safety isn’t the soup du jour. The city of Fortrus is in upheaval when Teacup arrives, and the Paladins are at the center of it, and neck deep. With his back against the wall and the assassins’ guild closing in, Teacup begins to wonder if wits and wee-sized weapons will be enough . . .

Long Legs and Tall Tales is a comic memoir about a naïve, goodie two-shoes, Midwesterner who tosses aside her conservative business suit and college education, leaves the safety of suburbia behind, and hesitantly sets off to become an international, sexy showgirl supreme. Follow her into her dressing rooms around the globe, as she learns to survive and then thrive (in stilettos, no less) in the wild and wonderful world of entertainment. With a virtual VIP All-Access Backstage Pass, readers get a sneak insider peek into two of America’s most iconically sexy and spectacular institutions—Playboy and the Radio City Rockettes—like never before. But wait! There’s more. The book also chronicles highlights of Kristi’s wacky journey from obscurity to fame including:

*her humble tutu and tiara-loving beginnings at her local “Dolly Dinkle” dance schools
*her awkward stretch into modern dance amid the danger and excitement of New York City
*mortifying corporate party performances (including dancing as half of the Brooklyn Bridge and knocking over patrons with her big buttress)
*musical theatre and movie escapades in and around Hollywood
*homespun fun in the Ozarks as Buddy Ebsen’s hottie Beverly Hillbillies sidekick
*jet-setting and bar-hopping with real live Playboy Bunnies
*her horror at sashaying on stage in a G-string
*going overboard for love on a cruise ship, and
*shaking her tail feathers for President Bill Clinton.

From the sweaty, smoky nightclubs of Singapore to the sizzling Las Vegas strip to the snowcapped mountains of Alaska and beyond, these behind-the-scenes, high-kicking high jinks rival the euphoria of thunderous applause. Having spent over 12 years strutting her stuff as a professional entertainer, including logging in over 1,200 performances (and 240,000 kicks) as a Rockette and touring overseas with the steamy Playboy’s Girls of Rock & Roll, Kristi has juicy secrets and shenanigans to spill. Through stories of her sparkling success despite mortifying missteps, the book aims to inspire readers to light their spark, pursue their passion, and shine brightly as the stars they truly are.

On Columbus Day of 2010, the love of my life, my wife of fifteen years, died suddenly of a double pulmonary embolism. This is the story of a man shattered by loss who somehow comes back to life. It’s a memoir and a survival guide, with humor and a breezy irreverent style that mitigates the sadness. It’s about relationships and finding love again; about insomnia and a mind that won’t go to sleep. And it’s a love letter to my wife who’s no longer here. And through it all, the quest for the perfect cocktail as an antidote to, as the subtitle says, “life’s pummeling.”

In the tradition of Post Secret and Other People’s Love Letters, a crowdsourced compilation of letters, stories, and art work about the modern state of love and relationships, edited by rising filmmaker and beloved YouTube vlogger Will Darbyshire.

“What would you say to your ex, without judgment?”

This is the question filmmaker and vlogger Will Darbyshire posed to hundreds of thousands of his closest friends on YouTube. Seeking closure after a tough break-up, Will was driven to strike up an intimate conversation with his online audience, and to get at the heart of one of life’s unknowable yet universal mysteries: love.

Over a period of six months, Will posed a series of questions to his audience and asked them to reveal their innermost feelings about their own romantic experiences in the form of hand-written letters, poems, photographs, and emails.

The result is a curated collection of responses that are, at turns, funny, dark, confessional, awkward, comforting, and uplifting. This Modern Love is a compelling portrait of individual desires, fantasies, resentments, and fears that reminds us that, whether we’re in or out of love, we’re not alone.

Homophones are words which sound the same but have different spellings/meanings. Given their nature, they may create confusion in everyday communication, and that is why they are ideal candidates for joke making.
Perfect to kill time, on a rough or sunny day, this collection contains 200 original homophone jokes that will surely please any punster.
Although the book is safe for most ages, some jokes (without being vulgar) are not suitable for young readers, so parents are advised to read it beforehand.
The Key to Joke Comprehension provided at the end of the book is very useful especially for non-native English speakers.
Here are some examples of the homophone humor you can find in this book:

When do Tories accept Whigs?
When they get bald.

How does an anteater describe a termite mound?
A vile ant house.

What happens to famous drum players when they die?
They become cymbals.

If Louis XIV was the Sun King, how come all historians speak only about his reign?

For his entire successful activity, the iguana breeder was given a pat on the back.

A vampire, a werewolf and the Detroit Police Department’s most incompetent Inhuman Crimes Unit officer walk into a bar.

Oh, and so does the CEO of a pharmaceutical company which is hiding a terrible secret.

And also the charismatic pastor of a Detroit mega-church/casino who is enraged that the corpse of one of his flock may have been reanimated as part of a mafia-run zombie fight club.

And let’s not even get into the young pharmacology researcher conducting a controlled experiment to figure out why men never call her for a second date.

In The Bone Eaters, newly minted private eye, Nick Slipwick, joins forces with Lieutenant Amato to unravel these mysteries. They discover more than they expect: vampires weren’t driven from North America 200 years ago after all, the werewolf fences that surround every town and city may not be as effective as everyone thinks, and a creature is stalking the night who is completely unlike all of the regular monsters you learn about in social studies.

And not just because he is somewhat obsessed with Dirty Dancing.

The Bone Eaters is a fast-moving, genre-skewering comedy, lovingly satirizing horror, mystery, and ‘chick lit.’ The novel brings together multiple interwoven story lines into a fun and satisfying conclusion. Just like we’re praying George R. R. Martin does.

The Bone Eaters: 50% humor, 50% horror, 50% mystery, and 50% romance. It’s twice the entertainment of a regular book.
