Death and the Rock Star

https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/death-and-the-rock-s...
The untimely deaths of Amy Winehouse (2011) and Whitney Houston (2012), and the 'resurrection' of Tupac Shakur for a performance at the Coachella music festival in April 2012, have focused the media spotlight on the relationship between popular music, fame and death. If the phrase 'sex, drugs and rock'n'roll' ever qualified a lifestyle, it has left many casualties in its wake, and with the ranks of dead musicians growing over time, so the types of death involved and the reactions to them have diversified. Conversely, as many artists who fronted the rock'n'roll revolution of the 1950s and 1960s continue to age, the idea of dying young and leaving a beautiful corpse (which gave rise, for instance, to the myth of the '27 Club') no longer carries the same resonance that it once might have done. This edited collection explores the reception of dead rock stars, 'rock' being taken in the widest sense as the artists discussed belong to the genres of rock'n'roll (Elvis Presley), disco (Donna Summer), pop and pop-rock (Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse), punk and post-punk (GG Allin, Ian Curtis), rap (Tupac Shakur), folk (the Dutchman André Hazes) and 'world' music (Fela Kuti). When music artists die, their fellow musicians, producers, fans and the media react differently, and this book brings together their intertwining modalities of reception. The commercial impact of death on record sales, copyrights, and print media is considered, and the different justifications by living artists for being involved with the dead, through covers, sampling and tributes. The cultural representation of dead singers is investigated through obituaries, biographies and biopics, observing that posthumous fame provides coping mechanisms for fans, and consumers of popular culture more generally, to deal with the knowledge of their own mortality. Examining the contrasting ways in which male and female dead singers are portrayed in the media, the book discusses the gendering of death an

Gates of Fire

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/audiobook/gates-of-fire-5...
NATIONAL BESTSELLER - "An incredibly gripping, moving, and literate work of art, rarely does an author manage to re-create a moment in history with such mastery, authority, and psychological insight." - Nelson DeMilleAt Thermopylae, a rocky mountain pass in northern Greece, the feared and admired Spartan soldiers stood three hundred strong. Theirs was a suicide mission, to hold the pass against the invading millions of the mighty Persian army. Day after bloody day they withstood the terrible onslaught, buying time for the Greeks to rally their forces. Born into a cult of spiritual courage, physical endurance, and unmatched battle skill, the Spartans would be remembered for the greatest military stand in history-one that would not end until the rocks were awash with blood, leaving only one gravely injured Spartan squire to tell the tale."A novel that is intricate and arresting and, once begun, almost impossible to put down." - Daily News "A timeless epic of man and war. Pressfield has created a new classic deserving a place beside the very best of the old." - Stephen Coonts

Nolen

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/nolen...
We have all heard of vampire. The legends vary and so do their abilities and weaknesses. Nolen is the first whose origin is explained scientifically. He is as real as any product of evolution, and like anyone, he struggles to survive the cruel and deceptive society of which we all find ourselves victim from time to time. Despite possessing the inhuman abilities of vampire, Nolen still finds himself fallen prey to betrayal and a tragic fate. Society molds us all to be more alike than we realize. Most of us feel the need to segregate; as our self image shines brighter, the more unique we feel that we have become. Nolen is only a fictional character in a metaphoric sense, as he represents the effects of our demanding and often cruel culture. We have all seen the world through his eyes and we have all fallen victim to some kind of discrimination at one time or another. I feel a strong connection with Nolen, as he struggles to understand and sometimes undermine the bleak direction of humanity. We label ourselves with fancy words, such as sophisticated and intelligent, but I think we can all learn valuable lessons from Nolen's primitive past. I would like to see a world where everyone stops to think about heir actions before they just followed along with the mainstream. I currently live in a smaller college town in North Carolina. It's large enough to be attractive to a younger, open-minded crowd and small enough that you can reach out to the masses when you have something to say. I think it's a good starting point to introduce Nolen and hopefully a place that will welcome him, as they have welcomed me thus far in the two years that I have lived here.
