THE MOST PROFOUND, ESSENTIAL & REAL VOICE IN AMERICA. Musician, Poet, Prophet. His disquieting voice has the power to give ears to the heart. Like most natives raised on a reservation, John Trudell's early years were a case of living in America but outside of the "American Dream". The realities of poverty & racism instilled a heart-filled contempt for the notions of democracy & equality. The following years were spent searching for his place & purpose. 1969...the Indians of All Nations occupation of Alcatraz. Their national spokesman & national chairman of A.I.M., John Trudell, remained in the public eye & under constant F.B.I. surveillance. 1979...Trudell burns the flag at a Washington demonstration citing American "injustice & racism & classism" as a desecration of the flag & what it stands for. Less than 24 hours later, his home was burned to the ground killing his wife Tina, her mother, & their three children..."it was murder, they were murdered as an act of war... "The black period that followed was when Trudell began to find his voice as a poet, eventually merging his words with music in GRAFFITI MAN. His truth beyond poetry, awakens us between the distinction between illusion & reality, & activates the real connection between power: perception & spirit. "He was an inspiration to me...There wasn't an untruthful moment in his performance." -Michael Apted, Director, "Incident at Ogiala," "Thunderheart." "Probably the most charismatic speaker I've ever heard," - Bonnie Raitt. "He is a reality check. Justice is a fire that burns inside him. His spirit cries out for him. It makes him dangerous." - Kris Kristofferson. "AKA GRAFFITI MAN is the best album of 1986." - Bob Dylan.

A Memoir

Sober Stick Figure is a memoir from stand-up comedian Amber Tozer, chronicling her life as an alcoholic and her eventual recovery— starting with her first drink at the age of seven—all told with the help of childlike stick figures. Amber writes and illustrates the crazy and harsh truths of being raised by alcoholics, becoming one herself, stagnating in denial for years, and finally getting sober. As a teenager, Amber is an overachieving student athlete who copes with her family's alcoholic tragedies by focusing on her achievements. It quickly takes a funny and dark turn when she starts to experiment with booze and ignores the warning signs of alcoholism. Through blackouts, cringe-worthy embarrassments, and pounding hangovers, she convinces herself that she “just likes to party.” She leaves her hometown of Pueblo, Colorado to follow her dreams, and ends up in New York City, spending lots of time binge drinking, passing out on trains, and telling jokes on stage. She then moves to Los Angeles, thinking sunshine and show business will save her. Eventually hitting rock bottom, she has a moment of clarity, and knows she has to stop drinking. It's now been seven years since that last drink, and she's ready to tell her story. Sober Stick Figure is adventurous, hilarious, sad, sweet, tragic—and ultimately inspiring.

When Zozimos is banished by an evil witch (his stepmother!) from the kingdom of Sticatha-the kingdom he was next in line to rule-he trains at battle (if you call chasing after butterflies training), travels across stormy seas (thanks for that, Poseidon), slays golems and monsters (with a lot of help), charms beautiful women (not really), and somehow (despite his own ineptitude) survives quest after quest. By the love of Zeus, though, none of it brings him any closer to home! It does, however, make for one quirky, original, giggle-provoking graphic novel sure to appeal to any kid interested in Greek mythology, or merely looking for an entertaining read.

The Story of Emmett Chapman and the Instrument He Created

Emmett Chapman did more than simply create a new musical instrument (as if that's simple). He discovered, developed and refined a new way for musicians to interact with stringed and fretted musical instruments. Along the way, a community gathered around this new instrument and a rich, new musical vocabulary emerged. This is his story. The Chapman Stick is a 5 and 1/4 octave, stringed and fretted musical instrument played with a two-handed tapping technique. Both the instrument and the technique were created by American musician and inventor Emmett Chapman. To date there are thousands of Stick players all around the world creating new, innovative music with The Stick on some of the biggest concert stages, small clubs, coffee houses and even in their parent's basements. This is the story of the man who created this new musical instrument, his music and the community that has grown around both. ---------------------------------------- "Creation is a dream or an imagining about something existing that may never exist, but does exist in your mind and in your heart. It comes from your experience and it comes from stretching what you know is possible to include the improbable... In the dream somehow the new way of imagining away from a problem creates the solution that was never there before." - Emmett's childhood friend Bill Kettman discussing Emmett and The Stick. "I blended my creation-from-the-heart with the aspirations of other musicians, and almost got drowned out in the process. The rewards for such sacrifice may seem distant and less personal but are immense." - Emmett From Chapter 1 - Evolution: "The room is silent. The audience has remembered that dimmed house lights signal the beginning of a performance. Quickly, burbling conversations dry up. Attention focuses. In the instant between the end of old banter and the potential to begin anew, a rich baritone voice fills the auditorium from unseen loud speakers: "Would You Welcome Please..." (The voice rises ever so slightly, perhaps this is a question) "Would you welcome please, Emmett Chapman." The name comes on an exhale, a downbeat. The name is a release. Shoulders drop..." And with that, the story begins...

Greek tragedy has never been so funny Zozimos' journey to the kingdom of Sticatha has been anything but smooth. He's survived enslavement, battled golems and a ravenous Cyclops, and generally served as plaything to gods and goddesses looking for a good laugh. All for the sake of reclaiming the Sticathan royal throne--stolen from him by an evil witch, aka his stepmother. You'd think that a stickman would catch a break after all that, but you'd be wrong. Arriving home only brings crazy family members and a return trip to sea, where mercenary centaurs and giant boar gods keep Zozimos questing and readers laughing. It would all be an epic tragedy if it wasn't so funny.

Does Gender Matter?

Publisher: NYU Press

ISBN: 1479824127

Category: Political Science

Goes beyond transgender to question the need for gender classification. Beyond Trans pushes the conversation on gender identity to its limits: questioning the need for gender categories in the first place. Whether on birth certificates or college admissions applications or on bathroom doors, why do we need to mark people and places with sex categories? Do they serve a real purpose or are these places and forms just mechanisms of exclusion? Heath Fogg Davis offers an impassioned call to rethink the usefulness of dividing the world into not just Male and Female categories but even additional categories of Transgender and gender fluid. Davis, himself a transgender man, explores the underlying gender-enforcing policies and customs in American life that have led to transgender bathroom bills, college admissions controversies, and more, arguing that it is necessary for our society to take real steps to challenge the assumption that gender matters. He examines four areas where we need to re-think our sex-classification systems: sex-marked identity documents such as birth certificates, driver’s licenses and passports; sex-segregated public restrooms; single-sex colleges; and sex-segregated sports. Speaking from his own experience and drawing upon major cases of sex discrimination in the news and in the courts, Davis presents a persuasive case for challenging how individuals are classified according to sex and offers concrete recommendations for alleviating sex identity discrimination and sex-based disadvantage. For anyone in search of pragmatic ways to make our world more inclusive, Davis’ recommendations provide much-needed practical guidance about how to work through this complex issue. A provocative call to action, Beyond Trans pushes us to think how we can work to make America truly inclusive of all people.
