The Mamas and The Papas waren 1966 mit ihren Hits „California Dreamin’“, „Monday, Monday“ (davon wurden 3,5 Millionen Singles verkauft, 7. Mai 1966 Platz 1 der US-Charts erreicht), „I Saw Her Again Last Night“ und „Words of Love“ die erste US-Band der neuen Popmusik mit überragendem internationalen Erfolg – „Amerikas Antwort auf die britische Rock-Invasion“ (Lillian Roxon). Mit seinem jüngsten Werk legt Matthias Blazek erstmals im deutschsprachigen Raum eine ausführliche Darstellung dieser wohl populärsten Erscheinung der Flower-Power-Zeit vor, flankiert von zahlreichen, bislang weitgehend unveröffentlichten historischen Fotos, Illustrationen und Faksimiles. Wie kein Zweiter vermag Blazek Geschichte erlebbar und spannend darzustellen und den Leser in seinen Bann zu schlagen, wie er in zahlreichen Veröffentlichungen bewiesen hat. Plastisch und eindrucksvoll breitet der Flower-Power-Fan, der selbst bereits seit 1985 bei der hannoverschen Band Crown of Creation mitwirkt, in seinem jüngsten Werk ein Stück Musikgeschichte vor dem Leser aus.

You'll get detailed descriptions of all major types of interactive stories, case studies of popular games (including Bioshock, Fallout 3, Final Fantasy XIII, Heavy Rain, and Metal Gear Solid), and how players interact with them, and an in-depth analysis of the results of a national survey on player storytelling preferences in games.

1600 Kilometer - in 10 Tagen - zu Fuß! Unmöglich? Nicht für Ultramarathon-Läufer. Denn: Für diese ist ein normaler Marathon nur Aufwärmübung. Sie laufen 50-Meilen-Rennen, 100-Meilen-Rennen und mehr. Sie laufen über 24 Stunden ohne Rast und ohne Schlaf. Sie treiben ihren Körper, ihren Geist und ihren Willen weit über das äußerste Maß an Schmerzen und Strapazen hinaus. Warum? Läuferlegende Dean Karnazes hat in seinem Buch seine ganz persönliche Lauf-Geschichte aufgeschrieben. Ein mitreißender, emotionaler Bericht, der nicht nur einen Einblick in das Seelen- und Trainingsleben eines Extremsportlers gibt, sondern den Leser auch dazu motiviert, den Mut zu haben, die eigenen Träume zu leben.

Digital Games, YouTube, and Virtual Performance

Why don't Guitar Hero players just pick up real guitars? What happens when millions of people play the role of a young black gang member in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas? How are YouTube-based music lessons changing the nature of amateur musicianship? This book is about play, performance, and participatory culture in the digital age. Miller shows how video games and social media are bridging virtual and visceral experience, creating dispersed communities who forge meaningful connections by "playing along" with popular culture. Playing Along reveals how digital media are brought to bear in the transmission of embodied knowledge: how a Grand Theft Auto player uses a virtual radio to hear with her avatar's ears; how a Guitar Hero player channels the experience of a live rock performer; and how a beginning guitar student translates a two-dimensional, pre-recorded online music lesson into three-dimensional physical practice and an intimate relationship with a distant teacher. Through a series of engaging ethnographic case studies, Miller demonstrates that our everyday experiences with interactive digital media are gradually transforming our understanding of musicality, creativity, play, and participation.
