Freebase

  1. Enjoyment

    Enjoyment is the follow-up DVD release to indie band Kaiser Chiefs' highly successful debut album Employment, released on November 28, 2005. The main focus of the DVD is an approximately 90 minute documentary directed by Walpole-based artist Cally Collomon, with an unusual narration by Bill Nighy and over an hour of live footage shot from various points in the band's career, ranging from their time as indie band Parva to the 2005 tour of Employment. Fitting with the documentary theme of the DVD, there are bizarre segments between the footage featuring interviews with who are supposedly the younger and older selves of the bandmembers. Besides the documentary, the DVD also includes all the band's music videos up to 2005's "Modern Way", plus footage from their live performances at summer festivals and access to the official Kaiser Chiefs website.

Examples of enjoyment in a Sentence

  1. Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged:

  2. Albert Einstein:

    It is in fact nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry for what this delicate little plant needs more than anything, besides stimulation, is freedom. It is a very grave mistake to think that the enjoyment of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty.

  3. Al Bochi:

    People feel like they have no idea what to eat anymore, they've been listening to all these different food rules -- don't eat carbs, don't eat after seven, eat this to increase Al Bochi metabolism -- and intuitive eating helps Al Bochi unlearn that unhealthy relationship with food and bring enjoyment back to the act of eating.

  4. Businessman Donald Trump:

    Everybody feels I'm doing this just to have fun or because it’s good for the brand, well, it's not fun. I'm not doing this for enjoyment. I'm doing this because the country is in serious trouble.

  5. Immanuel Kant:

    The enjoyment of power inevitably corrupts the judgment of reason, and perverts its liberty.
