The Story of Kiss's Destroyer and the Making of an American Icon
Author: James Campion
Publisher: Hal Leonard Corporation
(Book). How does an underground oddity become a cultural phenomenon? For over 40 years, the rock band Kiss has galvanized the entertainment world with an unparalleled blitz of bravado, theatricality, and shameless merchandizing, garnering generations of loyally rabid fans. But if not for a few crucial months in late 1975 and early 1976, Kiss may have ended up nothing more than a footnote. Shout It Out Loud is a serious examination of the circumstance and serendipity that fused the creation of the band's seminal work, Destroyer including the band's arduous ascent to the unexpected smash hit, Alive! , the ensuing lawsuits between its management and its label, the pursuit of the hot, young producer, a grueling musical "boot camp," the wildly creative studio abandon, the origins behind an iconic cover, the era's most outlandish tour, and the unlikely string of hit singles. Extensive research from the period and insights into each song are enhanced by hundreds of archived materials and dozens of interviews surrounding the mid-'70s-era Kiss and its zeitgeist. New interviews with major principals in the making of an outrageously imaginative rock classic animate this engaging tale.
The Integration/Participation Strategies and Sense of Home of First- and Second-Generation Women of Moroccan and Turkish Descent
Author: Melanie Eijberts
Publisher: Vu University Press Amsterdam
Category: Social Science
Women of Moroccan and Turkish descent in the Netherlands are often portrayed as oppressed, non-integrated victims. It is deemed that their Islamic faith and their alleged lack of sense of home in the Netherlands are obstructing their integration. However, this research shows that many women try to integrate, some explicitly because of and not despite Islam. Their definitions, needs, and strategies of integration and their integration experiences vary though, depending on the combination of their generational status, educational level, ethnicity/nationality, and age. This variation is not reflected by policies and how society treats them, which hampers their integration. Furthermore, many women do feel at home in the Netherlands. Nonetheless, the more they integrate, the greater their exposure to assimilative pressures. This can diminish their sense of home, thereby thwarting their integration process.

Tony Bell...Kiss Army membership number Z2192 - is a hopeless case, who fell in love with rock music during his teenage years. He was desperate for a piece of what was happening, and he wanted it right there and then. So, he borrowed Wylie Coyote's rocket powered roller skates, picked up a guitar and lit the fuse. Nobody told him that the road to rock and roll stardom curved as the canyon approached, and it really was a long way down. His fall was cushioned by some great times, and some great friends. By the time he hit the bottom, he had managed to open a beer, and tease his hair perfectly. When the dust settled, he picked up his pen, opened another beer and wrote it all down.

I am not homeless- I'm just someone who can't go home With these words, the young man known as Guttersnipe begins his account of two years spent living on the streets of Canterbury. Amongst the struggles he must face every day there is one that he never anticipated; that of boredom and how to occupy his time. Acting on a friend's advice on how to combat this problem, he begins to write his thoughts down each day. He records his observations, his ideas, his memories and his own life story. It is these writings that form the basis of The Guttersnipe Journals. Guttersnipe's story does not simply focus on the hardships that keep him apart from society - but rather he finds the common threads of human experience that bond us all together. It is a story that everyone should read.
Adopted into the Cherokee tribe as a teenager, William Holland Thomas (1805–1893), known to the Cherokees as Wil Usdi (Little Will), went on to have a distinguished career as lawyer, politician, and soldier. He spent the last decades of his life in a mental hospital, where the pioneering ethnographer James Mooney interviewed him extensively about Cherokee lifeways. The true story of Wil Usdi’s life forms the basis for this historical novella, the final published work of fiction by the late award-winning Cherokee author Robert J. Conley. Conley tells Wil’s story through the recollection of the old man’s memories. Wil learns the Cherokee language while working at a trading post. The chief Yonaguska adopts the fatherless Wil, seeing to it that the boy dresses like a Cherokee and, for all practical purposes, becomes one. Later, representing the Eastern Band of the Cherokees in their negotiations with the federal government, Wil helps them remain in their ancestral lands in North Carolina when most other Cherokees are sent off on the Trail of Tears to the Indian Territory. Thus, Wil becomes popularly known as the white chief of the tribe. He continues making money as a merchant and in 1848 is elected to the North Carolina state senate, where he assists in the creation of a railroad system to serve the copper mines in neighboring Tennessee. During the Civil War, he leads a Cherokee battalion in the Confederate Army and tries to persuade his cousin Jefferson Davis to expand the battalion of fierce warriors into a regiment. His achievements make his admission into an insane asylum all the more tragic. The Wil Usdi of Conley’s story is in increasingly bad health, mistreated in a mental institution that to twenty-first-century readers is little more than a jail. He dreams of women and warfare and boyhood games of stickball. Yet even in his demented state, Wil is proud of his accomplishments and never loses his conviction that Indians are “more human than whites.” Weaving together the disconnected stories of Wil Usdi’s life, Conley’s blend of thorough research and imaginative prose gives readers a deep sense of post-removal Cherokee history.
I give you all fair warning; this story is mine. There are many like it, but this one is mine. I am my best friend. It is my life. I am an AIDS survivor and a Marine. I must master my rifle. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my rifle is useless; without my rifle, I am useless. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. Before God I swear this creed, my rifle and I are defenders of my country. We are masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life. So be it, until victory is Americas, and there is no enemy but peace! Be prepared to get pissed off, begin to hate, begin to love, want to get violent. This may cause seizures, cause you to attack somebody, have you attacked, begin to question things, and quite possibly find yourself living a great life in reference to mine. You may also learn how to live without malice in your heart. I would suggest this book be placed in an adults hands, but if youre an addict or if youre thinking of using drugs, read further regardless. I also suggest anyone who is living with HIV/AIDS have a look also. I learned to relinquish my weapons and step aside, can you? I firmly ask you again, do not enter!

As I began to write the declarations and decrees of a warrior, God said I had to become one. Becoming a warrior is a process, a journey that you grow, develop and mature into. This book gives you the track and method to use to get started. So whether you're a beginner or advanced, you will be inspired, strengthened, and motivated, to move forward, into God's realms of success. Declarations and Decrees: What are they? How do they work? How do I apply them? Where do they come from? Declarations and Decrees have been illustrated and demonstrated throughout the word of God. They are more than just words compiled together. Its' an authoritive order, a rule of regulation having the force of the law behind it. The force of the law of God's word. In Job 22: 28 Declare and Decree a thing and it shall be established unto you. We are to be imitators, to echo, pursue and follow after our Lord. This book teaches you how to do just that. Born into a Christian home, I was saved and baptized at an early age, then filled with the Holy Spirit, as a young adult. My husband and I have been married for 35 years. We have two children. We have served as cell leaders, and at present, deacons and choir ministry. We are currently serving in Restoring the Foundation Ministry, A deliverance ministry that sets the captives free.
