Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 My grandfather’s cellar was off-limits to everyone except him. It was his world, and he kept his dirty secrets there. I was a scrawny 13-year-old with freckles and a bowl cut, while my cousin Chad was a scrawny 12-year-old with freckles and buck teeth. We wanted to become detectives, spies, or private investigators when we grew up. #2 My grandmother, Beatrice, was force-feeding me meat loaf and Jell-O, which was mostly water. She came from a rich family and had tons of money in the bank, but she was so cheap that she would try to make a single Jell-O package last for months. #3 My grandfather had a tracheostomy, which meant that he had a hole in his throat from which his voice came out. He was always annoyed, and would sometimes bark at me and my brother. #4 I played in the backyard with my friend Aleusha, an Alaskan malamute, who was my only real friend besides Chad. I was also curious about my grandfather and his depravity, so I didn’t go to visit my father’s parents for about a week.

In Dissecting Marilyn Manson, author Gavin Baddeley performs a cultural autopsy upon Manson, examining the seminal influences and psychotic sources that have gone into making him the Frankenstein monster that he is today. With its heavily visual approach, the text and pictures create the impression of a pathological scrapbook, emphasising the idea of the performer being put under the knife, exploring the Manson mythos in an irreverent but authoritative manner. Each chapter exposes one gruesome angle after another, gradually revealing just what makes Marilyn Manson tick and why so many find him so compelling. Dissecting Marilyn Manson offers the legion of dedicated Manson fans an alternative look into his macabre and twisted world. This revised and updated edition continues dissecting up to the present day, analysing recent developments in Manson’s professional and private life, including his recent high-profile court case, marriage to fetish model Dita Von Teese, and creative forays into the worlds of art and film.

Religion has always played a special role in the life of the United States. This has been true at Puritan times and it is still true today. Apocalypse Soon? charts the sometimes open, sometimes hidden connections between US popular culture and religion. The book's essays offer a closer look on a wide variety of cultural phenomena that reach from Puritan millennialism to George Bush's appeal to the Christian right, from Marilyn Manson's Antichrist Superstar to the Christian metal band Saviour Machine, and from TV series like Family First, Dead Like Me, and Lost, to Christian diet and chastity programs.

Music in Youth Culture examines the fantasies of post-Oedipal youth cultures as displayed on the landscape of popular music from a post-Lacanian perspective. Jan Jagodzinski, an expert on Lacan, psychoanalysis, and education's relationship to media, maintains that a new set of signifiers is required to grasp the sliding signification of contemporary 'youth'. He discusses topics such as the figurality of noise, the perversions of the music scene by boyz/bois/boys and the hysterization of it by gurlz/girls/grrrls. Music in Youth Culture also examines the postmodern 'fan (addict)', techno music, and pop music icons. Jagodzinski raises the Lacanian question of 'an ethics of the Real' and asks educators to re-examine 'youth' culture.

This morning, Lieutenant Robert “Mac” Macdonald woke up in New York City along with the rest of 8.6 million people, with one goal in mind, serve and protect, and get home in one piece. If he had one single clue that every single truth he held dear to his heart was about to be dismantled. In one single day, a belief system that took decades to refine would be mangled beyond any recognition. However, all was not lost as into his life comes a beautiful woman, far beyond his hopes and dreams, an FBI agent with an incredible secret. They join forces as they tumble down a rabbit hole filled with violence, insanity, and the ancient question of humanity, why are we here. Even in the middle of this tornado, two hearts find each other and ignite a powerful love that just might possibly keep them alive!
