looking forward to being attacked

Filed under: books, pics — brentabousko @ 3:37 am

overread:

The best part of this book is the gleeful enthusiasm of the author about being attacked. The chapter on how to handle obscene phone calls sounded so much fun it actually made me sad that no one makes obscene phone calls anymore. The pictures are great too, and not just for the relentless seventies fashion or the one attacker who is inexplicably wearing a beekeeper hat in all his shots.

Beauty in Decay - The Art of Urban Exploration (book cover)

http://www.gingkopress.com/08-pho/beauty-in-decay.html

“Take nothing but photographs, leave nothing but footprints.” This is the unspoken rule of urban explorers, who sometimes risk their safety, police records, and even their lives to explore abandoned buildings, sewers and storm drains, transit tunnels, utility tunnels, high-security areas of inhabited buildings, and even catacombs such as those in Paris, Rome, Odessa, and Naples.

Although these urban explorers usually work solo or in small teams, they collectively put forth a ground cry against a modern culture that embraces the new, polished, uniform, and mundane. Urban explorers find the beauty — layers of graffiti by years worth of writers, multi-hued peeling paint, antique objects, someone’s initials left in the dust on a broken stained glass window — and physical manifestations of memory that abandoned, impermanent urban spaces can hold.192 pages, Hardcover, 10 &#xBC” x 10 &#xBC” (260 x 260 mm)
200 illustrations, English
Beauty in Decay features the best in full-color, panoramic photographs from urban exploration — or Urbex — around the world. Overgrown industrial complexes, disused lunatic asylums, abandoned palaces and forgotten monasteries are showcased, and paired with clear-sighted, poetic text.
ISBN: 978-1-58423-420-3 $ 34.95

Hellbent for Cooking : The Heavy Metal Cookbook

Filed under: books, foooooood — brentabousko @ 9:08 pm

http://www.amazon.com/HELLBENT-COOKING-Heavy-Metal-Cookbook/dp/0979616379

With this delicious collection of favorite basic recipes by heavy metal bands from around the globe, Annick “The Morbid Chef” Giroux declares war on junk food, and fires up the flame for a special heavy metal feast.

Hellbent for Cooking feeds voracious appetites with a varied menu of over a hundred recipes from thirty countries, including Yorkshire Pudding from England, Beer Pizza Crust from Germany, Spaghetti Barracuda from Italy, Fårikål from Norway, Country Lamb Exohiko from Greece, Churrasco from Brazil, and Mushroom Steak à la Jack Daniel’s from the United States.

The dishes are legendary, and so are the bands. Feel the heat of thrash metal pioneers Sepultura, Kreator, Anthrax, and Nuclear Assault; the proto-metal heavy rock of Thin Lizzy, early Judas Priest, and Uriah Heep; the slow-cooked doom of Pentagram and Saint Vitus; and the extreme cuisine of underground pioneers Autopsy, Death, Repulsion; and Norway’s infamous black metal chefs Mayhem and Gorgoroth.

Raise your infernal fork for madman Chris Reifert’s Mummified Jalapeño Bacon Bombs, then sample Roast Beef with Green Beans prepared under the watchful eye of Udo Dirkschneider of Accept. Try After the Bombs’ Speed Metal Vegan Tofu, or Eyehategod’s favorite New Orleans Blood Red Beans and Rice.

Afterwards, Doro Pesch of Warlock serves her Black Forest Cake, and Richard Christy from Death pours his trademark cocktail, the mighty Viking Testicle. Now for anyone with a taste for metal:  The kitchen gates are open—grab your weapons of mass nutrition and let the feasts begin!

Description
Audio Length: 3 hours and 54 min.

This title has not been rated.

Version: Unabridged

 

The initial success of the Beastie Boys at Def Jam with the rude, crude, and multiplatinum 1986 debut Licensed to Ill had been unlikely enough; a trio of white Jewish kids and their white Jewish producer became hip-hop’s biggest stars overnight by offering a primal fusion of metal, rap, and teenage rebellion. But Paul’s Boutique abandoned the producer, the label, and the formula, instead smashing apart hundreds of old records and pop-culture references, then Scotch-taping them back together in unexpected new combinations. With a trio of unknowns at the production controls, it was a suicidal way to follow up a number-one hit.Not only did Paul’s Boutique transform the Beastie Boys from frat-boy novelty to hip-hop giants, its groundbreaking collage of rhyme and recycled soundbites made it one of those rare releases that forever alters the course of popular music.

Through interviews with Mike D, the Dust Brothers, and legendarily reclusive producer Matt Dike, among others, Dan LeRoy uncovers the story of this outrageous era in Beastie history.

Dan LeRoy writes regularly about music and politics for The New York Times, Rolling Stone, National Review online, Alternative Press, and Vibe, and he is the co-author of 20 Years of Mountain Stage (2003), a history of NPR’s musical variety show. His book The Greatest Music Never Sold was published in 2006 by Backbeat.

33 1/3 is a new series of short books about critically acclaimed and much-loved albums of the last 40 years. Focusing on one album rather than an artist’s entire output, the books dispense with the standard biographical background that fans know already, and cut to the heart of the music on each album.
