teacher web find your teacher - iCarly: Season
iCarly: Season One, Vol. 1
In the spirit of Wayne's World, Carly and her best friend Samantha "Sam" Puckett turn a boring school assignment into a fun, creative and hilarious web-show. When their friend Freddie accidentally leaks a video of their antics on the web, Carly, and average 13-year-old girl, becomes an unlikely online celebrity. Embracing her popularity, Carly convinces Sam, her co-host and comedic sidekick, and Freddie, their technical producer, to turn "iCarly" into a weekly show where they can finally do and say whatever they want! iCarly is a convergent entertainment experience that unites the TV screen and the web for kids. Throughout the show, Carly will encourage viewers to post their own originally created content relating to the context of each show. Solicited content may become part of a future iCarly episode, or included in Carly's online webcast, making iCarly the first scripted show on all of TV to incorporate original kid-created content.
iCarly is an appealing tween sitcom that marries television with web programming and offers viewers a chance to submit their own content for possible inclusion in future episodes. When Carly gets in trouble at school for posting an unflattering flyer of her teacher, her punishment is to record the school talent show auditions and post them online. As it turns out, Carly is innocent and was just covering for her best friend Sam, who really posted the flyer, so it's only fair that Sam join her in her punishment. Freddie, who has a huge crush on Carly and just happens to be a tech wizard, also decides to join them and help tape the auditions. The somewhat painful experience inspires the three teens to wish for an opportunity to produce their own show and determine their own programming--an idea that soon blossoms into a plan for a weekly web show. Since Carly's dad is stationed overseas in Europe, her 26-year-old brother Spencer, who's a rather unconventional artist and an even flakier authority figure, is in charge and he gives them the go-ahead. Soon the three teens are regularly hanging out in Carly and Spencer's apartment, eating everything in sight, producing their weekly web show, and gawking at whatever unusual sculpture Spencer happens to be working on at the moment. Things are never dull as Carly and her friends work to increase viewership. They pursue a write-up on an influential Internet site run by a very unusual tyrant, broadcast from a haunted apartment on Halloween, pay back a mean teacher by making a fool of her online, and set a world record for the longest continuous webcast. And then there's all the usual high school drama, like figuring out who to date, what to do for a science project, and how to get good grades--by any means. Real teens are invited to share their special talents on icarly.com, and some of the submissions will be included in future iCarly episodes. Like most teens' lives, iCarly is full of energy, humor, and lots of craziness. (Ages 7-13) --Tami Horiuchi
Solar system, arachnid style
No one paid much attention when the spider first showed up at school. Sure, he was a bit too small to fit the standard desk, but the teacher was accustomed to meeting students' special needs. She set him up with a shoebox, which she placed on his desk top, and allowed him to climb the walls or pipes or blackboard if he had trouble following the lessons.
Other than a few boys threatening to squish him (which really, was not that unusual for new kids) the spider's life in school was fairly uneventful. Until the day he turned in his science project.
"What's this?" the teacher asked.
"It's my model of the solar system," the spider said proudly. He'd been up half the night spinning it, and then out all morning coaxing dew drops into just the right places. He might not have been as talented as his classmates when it came to sports, or math (having eight legs, he found the whole business of counting to 10 using fingers and toes completely confusing and confounding, and had trouble moving past that) but here, in the world of science, the spider felt he truly excelled. He held up his model so that tiny images of forest and sky could be seen in the droplets, suspended upsidedown, signifying everything.
He smiled his widest spider smile, excepting praise. But the teacher said, "Oh, no. This is all wrong. I mean... where is Earth? Where is the sun? I don't see any labels on your planets and... really... why are there so many globules? And why aren't they arranged in a straight line, the way we taught you?"
The spider wanted to answer that, from his perspective, this WAS an accurate model of... not just the solar system, but the whole universe. He also wanted to point out that... even with eight eyes... his vision was not his primary sense and he mainly saw blobs of dark and light.
But he didn't say these things because he'd learned that people, in general, did not want to hear them. They did not want to know about other, different ideas and perspectives. In school, they simply wanted you to tell them what they'd told you.
So the teacher stood there frowning, not even remarking on the brilliance of the spider's work; the effort he'd invested; the way he'd captured the whole wide world in tiny glistening droplets. And the spider knew right then that school was not the place for him. He dropped to the floor, scurried out of the building and headed back to the forest.
"What did you learn at school today?" his mother asked when he got home.
And the little spider looked up at her, all eight eyes brimming with tears. "Everything," he answered. "Today I learned everything I'll ever need to know about people and the people world, and that's quite enough. I'm not going back."

With the latest installment of our ''Hard-To-Find 45's on CD'' series, Eric Records tackles a broad topic - love songs. After all, most songs are love songs - all about wanting it, finding it, losing it, and every step in between. And, we've got that covered, from John Denver's heartfelt tribute to his wife, ''Annie's Song,'' to Ronnie Dyson's frank discussion of bedroom politics, ''(If You Let Me Make Love To You Then) Why Can't I Touch You?''
What makes Hard-To-Find 45's on CD Vol. 13: The Love Album really special, though, isn't the love part, it's the hard-to-find part. Sure, these are all love songs, and nearly all of them were Top 20 hits. But, trying to find these on any other CD collection is like trying to find a date at 10 o'clock on a Saturday night - not easy, and very expensive!
No less than six of these songs are making their CD debut in one form or another! Two of them - Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds' ''Winners And Losers'' (1975) and ''Do What You Wanna Do'' by Five Flights Up (1970) have never appeared on CD in any form, anywhere. Others, like The Avant-Garde's pop-psych paean ''Naturally Stoned'' (1968), make their stereo debut. (By the way, guess who was in The Avant-Garde? Future game show host Chuck Woolery!)
Like all of Eric's ''Hard-To-Find'' series, this volume embraces the marvelously eclectic nature of popular music. Its 19 tracks cover more than a decade of prime-time pop, from the swooning ''Love Me With All Your Heart'' by the Ray Charles Singers (1964) to Roger Whittaker's poignant ballad, ''The Last Farewell'' (1975). Included in that span is one of the most sought-after love songs of all time - Paul Stookey's ''Wedding Song (There Is Love)'' - in its original hit version.
But nowhere, however, is that eclecticism more apparent than in a foursome of songs expressing love for God - all unexpected Top 20 smashes in an arena not known for its reverence. We have famed songwriter Kris Kristofferson's quietly awestruck ''Why Me,'' the Edwin Hawkins Singers' ecstatic ''Oh Happy Day,'' and Miguel Rios's ''A Song Of Joy'' (1970), based on the climatic final movement of Beethoven's 9th Symphony (making its U.S CD debut, by the way...). And then there's the most unexpected hit single of all time: ''Amazing Grace'' by The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards (1972), which forced teenagers coast-to-coast to listen to bagpipes - and like it!
Hard-To-Find 45's on CD Vol. 13: The Love Album is built from original single versions on original master tapes, painstakingly engineered for crisp, vibrant, stereo sound. Like its companion volume, Hard-To-Find 45's on CD Vol. 14: 70s & 80s Pop Classics, it includes a detailed, illustrated 12-page booklet by well-known music author Greg Adams.
