"Lisa "Suckdog" Carver has written widely on popular music, culture, and her own sex life. With Drugs Are Nice, she charts the birth of the movement she helped create, from the dizzying highs of European performance art tours to the genesis of the zine phenomenon." "When her drug dealer father calmly told fifteen-year-old Lisa he'd murdered a man, she knew any chance of a normal life was off. Soon after, she found herself on stage at a Veteran's Hall punk show, caterwauling while hitting things and people. Suckdog - called "the most interesting band in the world" by England's Melody Maker - was born." "Lisa Carver left the United States at the age of nineteen, becoming a teen publisher, a teen bride (to French musician Jean Louis Costes), and a teen prostitute. Hustler called Rollerderby "quite possibly the greatest zine ever," and the Utne Reader chose Lisa Carver as one of the "100 Visionaries Who Will Change Your Life." But when her baby was born in 1994 with a chromosomal deletion and his dad - industrial music maven and rumored Nazi Boyd Rice - became violent, Lisa realized the life that needed changing was her own." "Drugs Are Nice is about the generation that wanted to break every rule, then vanished without a trace. No one has made the right film or written the definitive book about them. Until now."--BOOK JACKET.

Do you remember these great pop stars and their hits? Deerhoof's The Man, The King, The Girl Butch Hancock's West Texas Waltzes and Dust Blown Tractor Tunes, Swamp Dogg's Cuffed, Collared and Tagged, Michael Head's The Magical World Of The Strands, John Trubee's The Communists Are Coming to Kill Us, John Phillips's Wolf King of L.A., and Michel Magne's Moshe Mouse Crucifiction? You will when you read Lost in the Grooves, a fascinating guide to the back alleys off the pop music superhighway. Pop music history is full of little-known musicians, whose work stands defiantly alone, too quirky, distinctive, or demented to appeal to a mass audience. This book explores the nooks and crannies of the pop music world, unearthing lost gems from should-have-been major artists (Sugarpie DeSanto, Judee Sill), revisiting lesser known works by established icons (Marvin Gaye's post-divorce kissoff album, Here My Dear; The Ramones' Subterranean Jungle), and spotlighting musicians who simply don't fit into neat categories (k. mccarty, Exuma). The book's encyclopedic alphabetical structure throws off strange sparks as disparate genres and eras rub against each other: folk-psych iconoclasts face louche pop crooners; outsider artists set their odd masterpieces down next to obscurities from the stars; lo-fi garage rock cuddles up with the French avant-garde; and roots rock weirdoes trip over bubblegum. This book will delight any jukebox junkie or pop culture fan.

Why the troll problem is actually a culture problem: how online trolling fits comfortably within today's media landscape. Internet trolls live to upset as many people as possible, using all the technical and psychological tools at their disposal. They gleefully whip the media into a frenzy over a fake teen drug crisis; they post offensive messages on Facebook memorial pages, traumatizing grief-stricken friends and family; they use unabashedly racist language and images. They take pleasure in ruining a complete stranger's day and find amusement in their victim's anguish. In short, trolling is the obstacle to a kinder, gentler Internet. To quote a famous Internet meme, trolling is why we can't have nice things online. Or at least that's what we have been led to believe. In this provocative book, Whitney Phillips argues that trolling, widely condemned as obscene and deviant, actually fits comfortably within the contemporary media landscape. Trolling may be obscene, but, Phillips argues, it isn't all that deviant. Trolls' actions are born of and fueled by culturally sanctioned impulses—which are just as damaging as the trolls' most disruptive behaviors. Phillips describes, for example, the relationship between trolling and sensationalist corporate media—pointing out that for trolls, exploitation is a leisure activity; for media, it's a business strategy. She shows how trolls, “the grimacing poster children for a socially networked world,” align with social media. And she documents how trolls, in addition to parroting media tropes, also offer a grotesque pantomime of dominant cultural tropes, including gendered notions of dominance and success and an ideology of entitlement. We don't just have a trolling problem, Phillips argues; we have a culture problem. This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things isn't only about trolls; it's about a culture in which trolls thrive.

The thought of having a crush on someone come into their lives. Thinking about sex and possibly testing the waters with drugs as well. It is hard for a parent to imagine their little child thinking along those lines, but it happens. At the age of twelve, children begin to test the waters never knowing the full consequences for their actions. What seems so simple and harmless is a silent act of destruction and possible death.
