    View the full documentary on Aeon Video: http://aeon.co/video/society/you-cant-always-get-what-you-want-a-short-film-about-a-us-president/ President of the United States is the one of the most powerful jobs in the world, but as this series of intimate phone conversations released by the Johnson Presidential Library illustrates, it’s still a job, and annoyances such as tech issues, awkward small-talk, and being over-scrutinised by colleagues are all part of a day’s work. Animated using archival photographs, You Can’t Always Get What You Want is a revealing look at the office of the President in the rare moments that aren’t usually subject to public scrutiny, as well as the life and times of Lyndon B Johnson during the tumultuous 1960s. The film’s director Scott Calonico holds a BSc in Radio/TV/Film production from the University of Texas at Austin and an MA in International Journalism from City University, London. His short films have been shown at numerous festivals in the United States as well as being purchased by networks such as Comedy Central. Director: Scott Calonico Language: English Executive Producer: Jeff Radice Website: www.scottcalonico.com For more short documentaries visit Aeon Video: aeon.co/video/

      New York book launch Sept 24 2014 (Corner Bookshop) of Jonathan Darman's LANDSLIDE. (Apologies for the Nam June Paik color;) Also- though the readings seem more focused on Reagan the book equally explores how Lyndon B. Johnson's public profile was sidelined in the media because of the John F Kennedy assassination in 1963. http://cornerbookstorenyc.com/event/nyc-launch-of-landslide-with-author-jonathan-darman/ http://www.randomhouse.com/book/36868/landslide-by-jonathan-darman
