Summary : There is a familiar phrase... "Things are not always what they seem." As I grew older I began to notice that it should have read, "Things are not always what they have been taught to be." Throughout our lives we are often faced with small philosophical adjustments. We humbly change beliefs that we once so confidently held into newer, more accurate versions. But sometimes, like a violent burst of thunder, we are suddenly forced to rethink some of the very foundational beliefs we inherited from those we love and trust the most. There is a time for a hundred small steps, and a time for a dozen large steps. Then there are bold and daring paradigm shifts. This book is for those whose radical theological shifts are now moving them from some of the more traditional teachings to some of today's more progressive concepts, and observations. The old information is NOT all the information. Every generation has proven this. Ours will be no exception. If the band you're in is starting to play different tunes, then this could be the book in which you say, "Oh Dorothy, there's no coming back from this."

Summary : The endurance of Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon on the Billboard Top 100 Chart is legendary, and its continuing sales and ongoing radio airplay ensure its inclusion on almost every conceivable list of rock's greatest albums. This collection of essays provides indispensable studies of the monumental 1973 album from a variety of musical, cultural, literary and social perspectives. The development and change of the songs is considered closely, from the earliest recordings through to the live, filmed performance at London's Earls Court in 1994. The band became almost synonymous with audio-visual innovations, and the performances of the album at live shows were spectacular moments of mass-culture although Roger Waters himself spoke out against such mass spectacles. The band's stage performances of the album serve to illustrate the multifaceted and complicated relationship between modern culture and technology. The album is therefore placed within the context of developments in late 1960s/early 1970s popular music, with particular focus on the use of a variety of segues between tracks which give the album a multidimensional unity that is lacking in Pink Floyd's later concept albums. Beginning with 'Breathe' and culminating in 'Eclipse', a tonal and motivic coherence unifies the structure of this modern song cycle. The album is also considered in the light of modern day 'tribute' bands, with a discussion of the social groups who have the strongest response to the music being elaborated alongside the status of mediated representations and their relation to the 'real' Pink Floyd.

Summary : Friedrich Kittler (1943–2011) combined the study of literature, cinema, technology, and philosophy in a manner sufficiently novel to be recognized as a new field of academic endeavor in his native Germany. "Media studies," as Kittler conceived it, meant reflecting on how books operate as films, poetry as computer science, and music as military equipment. This volume collects writings from all stages of the author's prolific career. Exemplary essays illustrate how matters of form and inscription make heterogeneous source material (e.g., literary classics and computer design) interchangeable on the level of function—with far-reaching consequences for our understanding of the humanities and the "hard sciences." Rich in counterintuitive propositions, sly humor, and vast erudition, Kittler's work both challenges the assumptions of positivistic cultural history and exposes the over-abstraction and language games of philosophers such as Heidegger and Derrida. The twenty-three pieces gathered here document the intellectual itinerary of one of the most original thinkers in recent times—sometimes baffling, often controversial, and always stimulating.

Summary : Studies of opera, film, television, and literature have demonstrated how constructions of madness may be referenced in order to stigmatise but also liberate protagonists in ways that reinforce or challenge contemporaneous notions of normality. But to date very little research has been conducted on how madness is represented in popular music. In an effort to redress this imbalance, Nicola Spelman identifies links between the anti-psychiatry movement and representations of madness in popular music of the 1960s and 1970s, analysing the various ways in which ideas critical of institutional psychiatry are embodied both verbally and musically in specific songs by David Bowie, Lou Reed, Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper, The Beatles, and Elton John. She concentrates on meanings that may be made at the point of reception as a consequence of ideas about madness that were circulating at the time. These ideas are then linked to contemporary conventions of musical expression in order to illustrate certain interpretative possibilities. Supporting evidence comes from popular musicological analysis - incorporating discourse analysis and social semiotics - and investigation of socio-historical context. The uniqueness of the period in question is demonstrated by means of a more generalised overview of songs drawn from a variety of styles and eras that engage with the topic of madness in diverse and often conflicting ways. The conclusions drawn reveal the extent to which anti-psychiatric ideas filtered through into popular culture, offering insights into popular music's ability to question general suppositions about madness alongside its potential to bring issues of men's madness into the public arena as an often neglected topic for discussion.

Summary : Featured Book Trailer of the Day, Shelf Awareness "While the novel addresses serious themes of life and death, survival and living, romantic love, and friendship, FOAMERS is an incredibly enjoyable, rousing read." --Loudmouthkid62 (Maura E. Lynch blog) "Foamers is a worthy addition to the canon of postapocalyptic fiction, and like the best of such books, at its heart it’s a frontier novel, brutal and exciting, celebrating individualism and self-determination. It’s also a hell of a lot of fun." --Tim McLoughlin, author of Heart of the Old Country "When a screwed-up flu vaccine mutates much of humanity into mindless beasts, 'Trust your intelligence' becomes the leitmotif of a group of survivors. Fast-moving, violent, and vividly imagined, Foamers creates a dangerous world made disquietingly believable." --David Poyer, author of Stepfather Bank and The Cruiser "It's as if The Stand had a head-on bus collision with Night of the Living Dead. I want to look away, but I can't stop reading." --John Koloski, author of Bloodblind, book #1 of the Empyres trilogy Part of Akashic's Kaylie Jones Books imprint. Terminally diagnosed with Huntington's disease as a child, Kade gave up on living a productive existence. He spent most of his time preparing for the Primal Age, even though he knew the end of the world wouldn’t happen in his shortened lifetime. In Kade's twenties, the United States is being ravaged by the Feline Flu. After the Flu hits pandemic levels, a vaccine is released to the public. Viewed as the last chance to stop the virus, over ninety percent of the population receives the vaccine within a single day. The vaccine takes on a life of its own and deprives the recipients of their higher functions, leaving them with only their primal urges. These bloodthirsty monsters become known as foamers because of the red foam that forms around their mouths when they hunt. As the world as he knows it descends into the Primal Age, Kade finds that he is not only useful, but is expected to lead other survivors. His group is constantly assaulted by foamers and a warmongering paramilitary unit. In an unrelenting fight for their lives, his group is forced to redefine humanity in a world without law.

Summary : "Every once in a while an author arrives with the rare talent to combine reality with romance. This is Janis Reams Hudson." —RT BOOK REVIEWS The stigma of his heritage has made Hawk accustomed to ridicule in Comanche County. Shunned by nearly everyone in town, he finds comfort in the one person who always accepted him: the beautiful Abby McCormick. But even as their childhood friendship blossoms into a passion neither of them can keep at bay, they know that Abby's father will never accept their love. Then, after an evening with Abby, Hawk is ambushed and beaten. Believing him dead, Abby spends four years mourning him. But when, against all odds, he storms back into her life, her hope for a love that never had a chance to truly be realized is restored. Hawk has returned for more than Abby, though. With his sights set on revenge, will he miss his second chance at the love that is right before his eyes?
