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."

In his own humorous style, Knoxville News-Sentinel columnist Sam Venable takes us through the seasons on the calendar. He has been celebrating the seasons since he was a child and recognized four seasons--Christmas, Birthday, Out-of-School, and In-School. Since then he's added a few more to his calendar--dove, duck, deer, rabbit, quail trukey, trout, fly fishing season. You get the idea. As Sam said, I was able to cram 28 months of activity into each 12-month period. This collection of columns includes celebrations of Groundhog Day to summer to election day to the snows of winter. Cartoons by Martin Gehring spice up the pages and add a special touch of celebration on their own.

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.
This comprehensive anthology of New Zealand poetry in English spans more than a century of verse-writing. It reveals the richness, variety and range of styles and voices to be found in the body of New Zealand verse in English. Established figures such as Curnow, Baxter and Tuwhare are givenstrong selections. Some previously neglected figures such as Jessie Mackay are rescued from obscurity, while contemporary poets are generously represented. With an eye to both fairness and range, editors Bornholdt, O'Brien and Williams have compiled a collection of New Zealand poetry remarkable asmuch for its diversity of poetic forms as its wealth of voices.
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.
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.
