Punk Rock Saved My Ass

Жанр: love_short
Автор: Jane Mackay
Here are the true stories from people whose lives were transformed and empowered by the frenetic, questioning, creative energy of punk rock; stories and poems written by people from the USA and Europe, sharing their unique vision on what it means to be punk. Written by musicians, teachers, artists, librarians, nurses, bakers, parents, and social workers, the stories are funny, sometimes tragic, and always surprising. Punk Rock Saved My Ass explores the strength of the punk movement to positively impact an individual's life by providing a community to those who feel lost, by rousing a person to do it herself, and by inspiring all to push the boundaries of their own creativity. You may never listen to a punk rock song again the same way.

Go Figure

Жанр: love_short
Автор: Rick Carle
It's Mayberry RFD meets Breaking Bad when a small town Opie-like boy become a big time drug dealer. This is the semi-true story (selected changes to protect the innocent and the guilty) of Rick Carle, raised with strong upstanding Midwestern values, until he takes a bad turn and travels down a crooked road. Join him on the wacky, sometimes heartfelt, often humerous ride that includes his encounters with State Patrolmen, Hell's Angels, and other unsavory characters. His outlaw journey should have landed him a 30-year stretch in the state pen...so how did Rick end up one of Ft. Dodge, Iowa's leading citizens instead?

Forty Days Off Facebook

Жанр: love_short
Автор: Ryan G. Beale
Death, divorce and dysfunction were ripping apart author Ryan Beale's life and tormenting his fragile state of mind. During one random evening while he sat reflecting in his downtown Chicago apartment he decided to set a goal for himself: to hit the master reset button in his life. However, he had one seemingly innocent distraction that kept him from confronting the wounds that were breaking his heart and mind. The next forty days, which started as a therapeutic experiment, turned into a monumental life-changing experience. Ryan challenges himself to look deeper within his being than ever before. He keeps a detailed account of the roller coaster of emotions that he wrestles with throughout this forty-day journey, one that ultimately (and first, unknowingly) leads him to begin living the life he had always dreamed of. The true account of this young man's personal struggle will move readers and empower them to reflect in ways that will open their minds to a sense of potential renewal within their own lives.

Fashioning Globalisation

Жанр: love_short
Автор: Wendy Larner
Drastic changes in the career aspirations of women in the developed world have resulted in a new, globalised market for off-the-peg designer clothes created by independent artisans. This book reports on a phenomenon that seems to exemplify the twin imperatives of globalisation and female emancipation. A major conceptual contribution to the literatures on globalisation, fashion and gender, analysing the ways in which women s entry into the labour force over the past thirty years in the developed world has underpinned new forms of aestheticised production and consumption as well as the growth of work-style businesses A vital contribution to the burgeoning literature on culture and creative industries which often ignores the significant roles taken by women as entrepreneurs and designers rather than mere consumers Introduces fashion scholars and economic geographers to a paradigmatic example of the new designer fashion industries emerging in a range of countries not traditionally associated with fashion Takes a fresh perspective on an industry in which Third World garment workers have been the subject of exhaustive analysis but first world women have been largely ignored
