Many hiphoppas labour to sustain Hiphop Kulture in their communities far from the big stages, world tours, and hit singles enjoyed by a shockingly few American hiphoppas. The creative labour of these few mega stars is calculated in billions of dollars. But for most hiphoppas, their creative labour may never get expressed in economic terms. Instead it is expressed in social capital, the production of collective and individual subjectivities, the bonds of love that build and hold communities together, and the healing of broken hearts, broken homes, and broken neighborhoods in broken cities. Hiphop Kulture is NOT a music genre, it is MUCH more, and exploring how the sharing of aesthetic resources builds community, and how situated learning plays a necessary role in cultural sustainability draws out questions that may lead to a model of community located cultural education, and a starting point for a critical pedagogy of music. "I ain't going to front, academics talking about hiphop scares me and often pisses me off. I'm protective about this culture like it's my own baby because it's meant so much to me and my close friends. In my less angry moments I do appreciate the fact that this culture still has so much to give to the rest of the world and that the next level is what we give back. Well, we need allies in this complex world to move things forward. As I've gotten to know Michael I consider him such an Ally and that his intent is firmly squared in empowering cats in the front lines. I also really dig the fact that he is committed to helping document the histories of those who laid the groundwork in the Edmonton scene. This is the respectful place to start. I look forward to bearing witness to Grass roots Hiphop reclaiming its voice and being at the forefront with academics supporting their community efforts." - Stephen "Buddha" Leafloor, Founder of the Canadian Floor Masters, Founder of Blueprintforlife.ca, Ashoka Fellow, Social Worker and an aging bboy! "Dr. Michael B. MacDonald's research into Hip Hop's pedagogical ingenuity have not only led us to the grassroots of Hip Hop's rich and vibrant global culture, but to the very Ethos of Hiphop. With bold examination, this exciting research stands at the forefront of contemporary post colonial Hiphop literature." - Andre Hamilton aka Dre Pharoh, Executive Director Cipher5 Hiphop Academy, Temple of HipHop Canada
Dan Hope has a list of ten wishes. Number 1 is for a new sister. Number 6 is for a swimming pool full of Coco Pops. And number 10 is for a dad who loves him.
Creating a broad, new vision of the 1930s, this highly readable social history shows that despite the hard times, Americans faced the Depression years with a characteristic resilience and optimism. Though more seriously affected by the Depression than Europe, Americans weathered hardship while European societies floundered, accepted dictatorships, or were caught in bitter ideological conflicts. Existing depictions of the era emphasize the negatives and overlook the diverse strengths of the American people, their ability to cope with temporary deprivation, and their triumphant retention of hope for themselves and the future of their society. Restoring perspective on the era, this book looks at Americans' solid value systems, their diverse support systems, their religious life, and the role of FDR and the New Deal. Although the New Deal helped undeniably, social and cultural resources played a major role in the stability of American society and the resiliency with which Americans withstood the severity of the Great Depression. Confirming this interpretation, McGovern takes a close look at numerous facets of American life-rural areas, great cities, the Okie Odyssey, labor, African Americans, ethnic organizations, radio and films, technology and design. All reveal sources of confidence, abundant energy, and robust action, typical of a hopeful people. This study attempts to explain the successes and achievements of Americans in the 1930s.
Want to Know What Really Goes On in the Navy? Well, Now Hear This! Any sailor will tell you sea stories relate bonafide historical events devoid of exaggeration or embellishment. Fairy tales, on the other hand, are well-fairy tales. It's easy to tell the difference between the two. Tradition demands fairy tales begin with "Once upon a time," whereas sea stories begin with "Now, this ain't no shit." The tradition of trustworthiness regarding sea stories is so sacred that no one can recall any instance in which someone questioned the veracity of a sea story. In the finest tradition of the United States Navy, Larry shares his navy experiences in A Ship-Load of Sea Stories & 1 Fairy Tale. Along the way, Larry answers all the questions you never thought to ask, including: What should you remember not to forget just before a jetliner lands on you? How do you avoid KGB kidnappers at lunchtime? What happens when you throw an egg through a radar beam, and what happens if you miss? Where's The Shrubbery Inn, and why is it so cheap? How do you cheat on navy exams, honestly? What's the best way to get stoned without breaking any regulations? Why do things get complicated when you enlist in the navy while wearing your army uniform? Why do economic forces indicate that a navy career is a better choice than an army career? What shouldn't you drink while watching Clint Eastwood in A Fistful of Dollars? Did peace ever rule the planets, and did love ever steer the stars? It's only fair to warn readers that the older Larry gets, the better he was."
"What were the constitutive acts in the making of a bishop and what was their significance?" In answering these questions, Professor Benson provides a new perspective on a crucial chapter in the history of ecclesiastical office. Drawing upon material from unedited canonistic manuscripts, as well as from Gratian's Decretum and theDecretales of Gregory IX, he traces aspects of the Church's constitutional doctrine and administrative practice from the early Middle Ages, which stressed the sacramental character of office, to the end of the thirteenth century, when ecclesiastical office was conceived primarily in terms of jurisdictional prerogatives.
