Als Vegan-Straight-Edge bezeichnet sich eine kleine und bislang in der Forschung wenig beachtete Gruppe Jugendlicher, die hauptsächlich in der Hardcoreszene verankert sind. Es werden zwei schon einzeln betrachtet extreme Lebensweisen miteinander vermischt. Straight-Edge beinhaltet sowohl die Ablehnung aller legalen und illegalen Drogen als auch promiskuitiven Verhaltens. Veganismus lehnt wiederum die Ausbeutung der nichtmenschlichen Tiere und somit jeglichen Konsum tierischer Produkte ab. Wie kommt diese Verbindung zustande? Worin liegt der Anreiz einer solch abstinenten Lebensweise im Jugendalter? Welche Auswirkungen hat dies auf die Bewältigung der Entwicklungsaufgaben? Die Arbeit geht diesen fragen nach.

From his days as a club face alongside Philip Sallon, Marilyn and Steve Strange, through the years of global pop superstardom with Culture Club, his rebirth as a world-class DJ, as a leading light of musical theatre with the award-winning Taboo, a cutting edge photographer and a confrontational and acclaimed fashion designer, one of the many things you can say about George is: he's never stood still. It's been one hell of a trip. A decade and a half ago, George was coming to terms with the fall-out from serious drug addiction, the failure of his relationship with Jon Moss and the collapse of Culture Club.For lesser men this would have been the end but for George it became the start of a period of remarkable reinvention. Told with George's trademark biting wit, brutal honesty and sparkling insight, this book reveals the whole story, reappraising his rise to stardom and all the madness that followed.He talks about his solo singing career, his initiation into the dance music scene, and his role as the driving force behind theatrical sensation Taboo.George also discusses the achievement of the apparently impossible task of reuniting the famously fractious Culture Club. It is only now, many years on from the glittering, glossy Eighties, that George makes an insightful and often hilarious assessment of the impact of that extraordinary era.

Scharfzüngig und wunderbar komisch Kennedy Marr ist ein Autor der alten Schule. Irisch, zynisch bis zum Anschlag, ein Borderline-Alkoholiker und Sex-Süchtiger. Sein Mantra lautet: hart trinken, gut essen und jede Frau flachlegen, die bei drei nicht auf den Bäumen ist. Mittlerweile als Drehbuchautor in L. A. ansässig, flucht er sich durch die kalifornische Literatur- und Filmszene. Doch sein verschwenderischer Lebensstil bringt ihn an den Rand des Bankrotts, bis sich unverhofft eine Lösung anbietet. In England wird er für einen hoch dotierten Literaturpreis vorgeschlagen. Um an das Geld zu kommen, gilt es allerdings, mehrere konfliktbeladene Auflagen zu erfüllen.

Righteous jive for all you weedheads, moochers, b-girls, gassers, bandrats, triggermen, grifters, snowbirds, and long-gone daddies. Much of the slang popularly associated with the hippie generation of the 1960s actually dates back to before World War II, hijacked in the main from jazz and blues street expressions, mostly relating to drugs, sex, and drinking. Why talk when you can beat your chops, why eat when you can line your flue, and why snore when you can call some hogs? You’re not drunk–you’re just plumb full of stagger juice, and your skin isn’t pasty, it’s just caf? sunburn. Need a black coffee? That’s a shot of java, nix on the moo juice. Containing thousands of examples of hipster slang drawn from pulp novels, classic noir and exploitation films, blues, country, and rock ’n’ roll lyrics, and other related sources from the 1920s to the 1960s, Straight from the Fridge, Dad is the perfect guide for all hep cats and kittens. Think of it as a sort of Thirty Days to a More Powerful Vocabulary for the beret-wearing, bongo-banging set. Solid, Jackson. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Wilkinson Era at Oklahoma

Football tradition at the University of Oklahoma still runs strong, as does the record of forty-seven consecutive victories that legendary coach Bud Wilkinson and his players set in the 1950s. Approached but never equaled by teams such as Washington, Miami, and Texas, the streak contributed to the acclaim Wilkinson garnered by amassing an impressive three national championships (1950, 1955, and 1956), twelve consecutive conference titles, twenty-three straight wins on opposing fields, Top Ten rankings for eleven successive years, and a thirty-one game winning streak before the unforgettable “forty-seven straight.” Forty-seven Straight details how the record grew, season by season, as told by sixty-one of Wilkinson’s players during interviews with Harold Keith, the university’s sports publicist who witnessed all 178 football games during the Wilkinson era at OU. The players recall Wilkinson’s and his staff’s style, methods, and strategies while vividly recalling their most dramatic games. The scholastic integrity of Wilkinson’s program, which included high academic standards and graduation rates, produced a successful group of career-minded players.
