Knight Defenders Victoria Sue 2016-01-29 Gwen wanted to believe that her real first name - Guinevere - was nothing more than the byproduct of her father's obsession with the legends of Merlin, an obsession that had cost him his job and ultimately ruined both their lives. Yet, when she encounters a monster in a dark alley bent on killing her and meets Lance, her movie-star gorgeous rescuer who explains the truth about them and who he is - Lancelot, from King Arthur's court - there's no way she can believe that he's just some insane man who claims to still be answering King Arthur's battle cry after fifteen hundred years, especially when she meets the other knights and discovers she is being targeted by beasts sent to hunt them long ago by the evil witch, Morgan Le Fey. Gwen is pulled into a battle for her life. But as the pieces in a complex plan put together by Merlin himself fall in place and Gwen with the knights pursues the source of Morgan's evil, she is soon afraid for much more than her life, for Lance wins her affection, and soon her heart. Is it a true love? Will Lancelot still fight for Guinevere? Will he pick up his sword as he did for hundreds of years, or will he realize that despite his vow, he didn't really love Gwen but a medieval queen that had been dead for over a thousand years?

This Ain't the Summer of Love Steve Waksman 2009-02-04 "Waksman brings a new understanding to familiar material by treating it in an original and stimulating manner. This book tells 'the other side of the story.'"—Philip Auslander, author of Performing Glam Rock: Gender and Theatricality in Popular Music "While there are a number of histories of punk and metal and numerous biographies of important bands within each genre, there is no comparable book to This Ain't the Summer of Love. The ultimate contribution the book makes is to provoke the reader into rethinking the ongoing fluid relationship between punk, a music that enjoyed considerable critical support, and metal, a music that has been systematically denigrated by critics. This book is the product of superior scholarship; it truly breaks fresh ground and as such it is an important book that will be regularly cited in future work."—Rob Bowman, Professor of Music at York University and author of Soulsville USA: The Story of Stax Records "Debunking simplistic assumptions that punk rebelled and heavy metal conformed, Steve Waksman demonstrates with precisely chosen examples that for decades the two shared strategies and concerns. As a result, this important volume is among the first to extend to rock history the same much-needed revisionism that elsewhere has transformed our understanding of minstrelsy, blues, country music, and pop."—Eric Weisbard, author of Use Your Illusion I & II

Metal Rules the Globe Harris M. Berger 2011-12-27 During the past three decades, heavy metal music has gone global, becoming a potent source of meaning and identity for fans around the world. In Metal Rules the Globe, ethnographers and some of the foremost authorities in the burgeoning field of metal studies analyze this dramatic expansion of heavy metal music and culture. They take readers inside metal scenes in Brazil, Canada, China, Easter Island, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Malaysia, Malta, Nepal, Norway, Singapore, Slovenia, and the United States, describing how the sounds of heavy metal and the meanings that metalheads attribute to them vary across cultures. The contributors explore the dynamics of masculinity, class, race, and ethnicity in metal scenes; the place of metal in the music industry; and the ways that disenfranchised youth use metal to negotiate modernity and social change. They reveal heavy metal fans as just as likely to criticize the consumerism, class divisiveness, and uneven development of globalization as they are to reject traditional cultural norms. Crucially, they never lose sight of the sense of community and sonic pleasure to be experienced in the distorted, pounding sounds of local metal scenes. Contributors. Idelber Avelar, Albert Bell, Dan Bendrups, Harris M. Berger, Paul D. Greene, Ross Hagen, Sharon Hochhauser, Shuhei Hosokawa, Keith Kahn-Harris, Kei Kawano, Rajko Muršič,Steve Waksman, Jeremy Wallach, Robert Walser, Deena Weinstein, Cynthia P. Wong

Hip Hop Aesop J. Scott Fleming 2016-06-10 We know fables mostly as those morality stories going back to a 550 BCE Greek slave named Aesop. We still admire them as a source of human-nature wisdom. They were once used to induce good behavior in children. Cautionary tales today come in the form of medicinal side-effect warnings."Hip Hop Aesop" is meant to be in the Aesop tradition. It may lack the moral instruction, but it relies on the same animal wit and wisdom. We hope we have followed the Aesop rule of "being useful to life and true to nature." Aesop lived about the same time as the Buddha, so we like to think of our stories as Zen-like, if they're like anything.We think of the book's artwork as more inspiration than illustration. It speaks for itself and goes its own way with the fables which were written first and then sent to Scott to do what he would with them. It's called artistic license in some places. We think this lack of collaboration helped fable and image to each speak in its own language.
Tokyo Listening Lorraine Plourde 2019-07-17 Tokyo Listening examines how the sensory experience of the city informs how people listen to both music and everyday, ubiquitous sounds. Drawing on recent scholarship in the fields of sound studies, anthropology, and ethnomusicology and over fifteen years of ethnographic fieldwork in Japan, Lorraine Plourde traces the linkages between sound and urban space. She examines listening cultures via four main ethnographic sites in Tokyo—an experimental music venue, classical music cafes, office workspaces, and department stores—looking specifically at how such auditory sensibilities are cultivated. The book brings together two different types of spaces into the same frame of reference: places people go to specifically for the music, and spaces where the music comes to them. Tokyo Listening examines the sensory experience of urban listening as a planned and multifaceted dimension of everyday city life, ultimately exploring the relationship between sound, comfort, happiness, and productivity.
Heavy Metal Deena Weinstein 2009-08-05 Few forms of music elicit such strong reactions as does heavy metal. Embraced by millions of fans, it has also attracted a chorus of critics, who have denounced it as a corrupter of youth—even blamed it for tragedies like the murders at Columbine. Deena Weinstein argues that these fears stem from a deep misunderstanding of the energetic, rebellious culture of metal, which she analyzes, explains, and defends. She interprets all aspects of the metal world—the music and its makers, its fans, its dress code, its lyrics—and in the process unravels the myths, misconceptions, and truths about an irreverent subculture that has endured and evolved for twenty years.

Jordan Wolfson: Ecce Homo Le Poseur Jordan Wolfson 2014-02-28 This book, which sold out almost immediately upon publication, is a reprint of the catalogue produced on the occasion of Wolfson’s 2012–2013 exhibitions at REDCAT (Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater) in Los Angeles and the Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst (S.M.A.K.) in Ghent. Entitled Ecce Homo/le Poseur, the S.M.A.K. presentation marked the most comprehensive survey of Wolfson’s work to date. The volume’s eponymous title effectively expresses the artist’s interest in the ego and its image as well as destabilizing differences between life and imitation, reality and imagination. Anchored by full-scale color plates of Wolfson’s three animations—video stills, details, and installation views of the ambitiously conceived Con Leche (2009), Animation, masks (2011), and Raspberry Poser (2012)—the book provides a critical framework for the artist’s vast and varied practice. Images are given context by illuminating scholarship by Esther Leslie and Linda Norden, and a conversation between Aram Moshayedi and Wolfson brings their analyses to ground. Also included is a letter personally addressed to the artist by Philippe Van Cauteren. In Wolfson’s words, his work is “about reaching a place of displacement and control within the space of viewing”; this text exists as an embodiment of that ever-evolving vision, which considers the developments of digital and analogue animation as essential to the histories of modernism and modernity, and posits them as responsible for shaping and relaying the concerns of sculptural and pictorial modes of representation, and defining our relationship to both images and objects.
Japan Pop: Inside the World of Japanese Popular Culture Timothy J. Craig 2015-04-08 A fascinating illustrated look at various forms of Japanese popular culture: pop song, jazz, enka (a popular ballad genre of music), karaoke, comics, animated cartoons, video games, television dramas, films and "idols" -- teenage singers and actors.

Music in Japan Bonnie C. Wade 2005 Music in Japan is one of several case-study volumes that can be used along with Thinking Musically, the core book in the Global Music Series. Thinking Musically incorporates music from many diverse cultures and establishes the framework for exploring the practice of music around the world. Itsets the stage for an array of case-study volumes, each of which focuses on a single area of the world. Each case study uses the contemporary musical situation as a point of departure, covering historical information and traditions as they relate to the present. Visit fora list of case studies in the Global Music Series. The website also includes instructional materials to accompany each study. Music in Japan offers a vivid introduction to the music of contemporary Japan, a nation in which traditional, Western, and popular music thrive side by side. Drawing on more than forty years of experience, author Bonnie C. Wade focuses on three themes throughout the book and in the musicalselections on the accompanying CD. She begins by exploring how music in Japan has been profoundly affected by interface with both the Western (Europe and the Americas) and Asian (continental and island) cultural spheres. Wade then shows how Japan's thriving popular music industry is also a modernform of a historically important facet of Japanese musical culture: the process of gradual popularization, in which a local or a group's music eventually becomes accessible to a broader range of people. She goes on to consider the intertextuality of Japanese music: how familiar themes, musicalsounds, and structures have been maintained and transformed across the various traditions of Japanese performing arts over time. Music in Japan is enhanced by eyewitness accounts of performances, interviews with key performers, and vivid illustrations. Packaged with an 80-minute CD containing examples of the music discussed in the book, it features guided listening and hands-on activities that encourage readers toengage actively and critically with the music.
Anti-Security Mark Neocleous 2011 Security has reached an analytic blockage. The more security seems post-political, post-social, or even post-modern the more it escapes analytic scrutiny. The more security attaches itself to innumerable social relationships the more it becomes the very glue that binds social reality. Social problems become security problems while projects of pacification continue to be legitimized under the rubric of security. To be against security today is to stand against the entire global economic system. If security has become the dominant, perhaps impenetrable concept of our times, then we must start entertaining the impossible. We must begin asking: what would doing anti-security look like?

No Surrender Hiroo Onoda 2013-12-04 In the spring of 1974, Second Lieutenant Hiroo Onoda of the Japanese army made world headlines when he emerged from the Philippine jungle after a thirty-year ordeal.

This book was translated into English the following year and has enjoyed an approving audience ever since.

The Biopolitics of Gender Jemima Repo 2015-10-01 This title provides a theoretically and methodologically new and distinct approach to gender through the frameworks of biopolitics and genealogy, theorising it as a historically specific apparatus of biopower. Through the use of a diverse mix of historical and contemporary documents, the book explores how the problematisation of intersex infant genitalia in 1950s psychiatry propelled the emergence of the gender apparatus in order to socialise sexed individuals into the ideal productive and reproductive subjects of White, middle-class postwar America.
