Description :


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."

Description :


Pink Floyd tapped into the deep roots people have in philosophy, psychology, religion, literature, and history, and their 1973 album The Dark Side of the Moon continues to appeal to people after almost fifty years. This book explains how the album evokes and resonates with so many cultural chords in all of us. "More Than Music is a rigorous examination of one of the most enduring records of all time, Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon. Analyzing the album from many different avenues, the book provides clear correlations of the music and lyrics to many aspects of human culture, from ancient times to the present. Each song is examined line by line to show how the album evokes and ties together themes from myriad philosophical, mythological, psychological, religious, historical, literary, and other cultural sources. The book shows how William James and Carl Jung, Ecclesiastes and Kierkegaard, D.H. Lawrence and T.S. Eliot, Horace and Orwell, Jesus and Buddha, Beethoven and Strauss, William Blake and Jean-Paul Sartre, The Beatles and Gilbert and Sullivan resonate throughout The Dark Side of the Moon. They are among the most powerful sources of who we are and why. Coming to see how the album knits together so many diverse elements into a seamless whole, the interplay of many factors that make up society is illuminated. This book will give readers a new way of looking at how the factors of philosophy, religion, psychology, mythology, literature and poetry, history and politics derive meaning and depth from each other. Readers will never listen to The Dark Side of the Moon the same way, but they’ll never look at the underlying factors the same way again, either.

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.

Description :


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.

Description :


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.

In the mysterious lands of Manoa, Xacul claims he is a god, but is he really the one causing the rumbling and fire spouting from the ground? ExcerptIt was stiflingly hot in the submarine's tiny cabin. The steady pound of the screws was a throbbing ache. Coh Langham, his scarred hawk face set in lines of restless boredom, stared out the port at the featureless muck that rolled endlessly away under the searchlight, "Krim," he said abruptly, "you're crazy."Simon Krim, hunched like a shaggy black bull over the tiny control panel, spoke without taking his eyes from the sea-floor. "What's the matter, Langham? Has the thrill petered out?""Thrill!" Langham's strong brown body, stripped to dungarees, hitched angrily lower in the seat. Yes, he had expected a thrill. He had hated seeing Krim again; it took him back to a time he wanted to forget. But Krim had asked him, and he, at a loose end and restless as always, had accepted. Hunting a sunken continent with a submarine was something he hadn't done before. It looked exciting.The excitement had resolved itself into three weeks of hellish monotony, heat, and inactivity, and utter boredom.Simon Krim grunted. "That's all you think about, isn't it? Thrills. Your father was a hard-working archeologist, my best friend. And you spend your life crashing planes and climbing mountains, having adventures."There was an edge to his voice; his hairy body gleamed with sweat, and there were tight lines around his mouth.Coh Langham's blue eyes went hard under the scarlet cloth that held back his damp fair hair. "My life's my own, Krim. My father certainly never got much out of his!"

Writing The 100 Greatest Rock'n'Roll Songs Ever was a labor of love. Written while on Sabbatical leave from my day job, it is one listener's snapshot of the genre, from the mid-'50's to the present, filtered through my personal life experiences. My purpose for writing this book was to acknowledge the major role that the music has played in my life. My wish for the reader is to stimulate memories of your own favorite songs and of the rock'n'roll vernacular and experiences shared by many of us.

Description :


David Childress, popular author and star of the History Channel show Ancient Aliens, brings us the incredible tale of the German flying disk known as the Haunebu. Although rumors of German flying disks have been around since the late years of WWII it was not until 1989 when a German researcher named Ralf Ettl living in London received an anonymous packet of photographs and documents concerning the planning and development of at least three types of unusual craft—craft which we would classify today as UFOs or flying saucers. Ettl went on to make several television documentaries based on the material in the packet and released most of the documents and photos to researchers in Austria and other parts of Europe. What the Ralf Ettl document dump shows us is what many have suspected for a long time: that WWII did not end in the manner in which we have been told, and a remnant of the Nazi military—particularly the SS—continued to operate flying saucers and submarines around the world in the decades after the end of the war. This activity—involving a flying saucer known as the Haunebu—was particularly notable in South America, but it ultimately involved all the continents of the world including Antarctica. Join Childress as he shows us the secret files involving the Haunebu, the Vril craft, the Andromeda craft, and others. Includes a 16-page color section. Over 120 photographs and diagrams.
