3 BRINKLEY, DAVID. Everyone Is Entitled To My Opinion.
Alfred A. Knopf, New York: 1996. 0679450718 / 9780679450719 First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. 
In this one-of-a-kind book, we get the undiluted Brinkley. He marvels at government regulations that require paint cans to bear a label reading "Do not drink paint." He nominates Richard Nixon as Official U.S. Government Scapegoat. He commiserates with an Oklahoma mayor who must earn extra money by collecting beer cans and claiming the deposits. He commemorates absurdity - and hence suffers fools gladly.

5 BURKART, PATRICK. Music And Cyberliberties.
Wesleyan University Press. First Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Musicians and music fans are at the forefront of cyberliberties activism, a movement that has tried to correct the imbalances that imperil the communal and ritualistic sharing and distribution of music. In Music and Cyberliberties, Patrick Burkart tracks the migration of music advocacy and anti-major label activism since the court defeat of Napster and the ascendancy of the so-called Celestial Jukebox model of music e-commerce, which sells licensed access to music. Music and Cyberliberties identifies the groups—alternative and radical media activists, culture jammers, hackers, netlabels, and critical legal scholars—who are pushing back against the "copyright grab" by major labels for the rights and privileges that were once enjoyed by artists and fans. Burkart reflects on the emergence of peer-to-peer networking as a cause clŹbre that helped spark the movement, and also lays out the next stages of development for the Celestial Jukebox that would quash it. By placing the musical activist groups into the larger context of technology and new social movement theory, Music and Cyberliberties offers an exciting new way of understanding the technological and social changes we confront daily.

7 CARTER, ALAN; TYLER, STEVEN (FOREWORD) Radio Free Boston: The Rise And Fall Of Wbcn.
s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The definitive story of the pioneering rock radio station that galvanized a city and a generation. Blaring the Cream anthem "I Feel Free," WBCN went on the air in March 1968 as an experiment in free-form rock on the fledgling FM radio band. It broadcast its final song, Pink Floyd's "Shine On You Crazy Diamond," in August 2009. In between, WBCN became the musical, cultural, and political voice of the young people of Boston and New England, sustaining a vibrant local music scene that launched such artists as the J. Geils Band, Aerosmith, James Taylor, Boston, the Cars, and the Dropkick Murphys, as well as paving the way for Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, U2, and many others. Along the way, WBCN both pioneered and defined progressive rock radio, the dominant format for a generation of listeners. Brilliantly told by Carter Alan—and featuring the voices of station insiders and the artists they loved—Radio Free Boston is the story of a city; of artistic freedom, of music and politics and identity; and of the cultural, technological, and financial forces that killed rock radio. Currently a DJ and music director at WZLX in Boston, CARTER ALAN was a DJ at WBCN for nineteen years. He is the author of U2, Outside Is America, and Life on the Road.

12 DOMINGUEZ-RUVALCABA, HECTOR & CORONA, IGNACIO (EDITORS). Gender Violence At The Us- Mexican Border: Media Representation And Public Response.
University of Arizona Press, Tucson 2010. Reprint Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The U.S.-Mexico border is frequently presented by contemporary media as a violent and dangerous place. But that is not a new perception. For decades the border has been constructed as a topographic metaphor for all forms of illegality, in which an ineffable link between space and violence is somehow assumed. The sociological and cultural implications of violence have recently emerged at the forefront of academic discussions about the border. And yet few studies have been devoted to one of its most disturbing manifestations: gender violence. This book analyzes this pervasive phenomenon, including the femicides in Ciudad Juarez that have come to exemplify, at least for the media, its most extreme manifestation. Contributors to this volume propose that the study of gender-motivated violence requires interpretive and analytical strategies that draw on methods reaching across the divide between the social sciences and the humanities. Through such an interdisciplinary conversation, the book examines how such violence is (re)presented in oral narratives, newspaper reports, films and documentaries, novels, TV series, and legal discourse. It also examines the role that the media have played in this process, as well as the legal initiatives that might address this pressing social problem. Together these essays offer a new perspective on the implications of, and connections between, gendered forms of violence and topics such as mechanisms of social violence, the micro-social effects of economic models, the asymmetries of power in local, national, and transnational configurations, and the particular rhetoric, aesthetics, and ethics of discourses that represent violence.

20 LECHNER, JACK. Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You.
Crown Publishers, New York: 2000. 0609606816 / 9780609606810 Uncorrected Proof. s Softcover. Very good condition. 
Thirty-two years after Charles Sopkin chronicled his hilarious adventures in his classic book on the state of television in the 1960s, Seven Glorious Days, Seven Fun0Filled Nights, Jack Lechner recounts what it was like to lock himself in his apartment for a week and plug in to the new multichannel universe, watching twelve TVs for fifteen hours a day. Part social history, part memoir, Lechner's account is filled with endless waves of infomercials and infotainment, A&E and MTV, Bob Dole's erectile dysfunction and the curious world of daytime soaps, occasional brilliance like The Simpsons, and the increasingly bizarre exploits of Jerry Springer, Howard Stern, wrestling, and other mind-numbing fodder. Can't take My Eyes Off of You is a funny, and somewhat scary, commentary on our meid-soaked society.
