Articulates the role black theatricality played in the radical energy of the sixties Black Performance on the Outskirts of the Left illustrates the black political ideas that radicalized the artistic endeavors of musicians, playwrights, and actors beginning in the 1960s. These ideas paved the way for imaginative models for social transformation through performance. Using the notion of excess—its transgression, multiplicity, and ambivalence—Malik Gaines considers how performances of that era circulated a black political discourse capable of unsettling commonplace understandings of race, gender, and sexuality. Following the transnational route forged by W.E.B. Du Bois, Josephine Baker, and other modern political actors, from the United States to West Africa, Europe and back, this book considers how artists negotiated at once the local, national, and diasporic frames through which race has been represented. Looking broadly at performances found in music, theater, film, and everyday life—from American singer and pianist Nina Simone, Ghanaian playwrights Efua Sutherland and Ama Ata Aidoo, Afro-German actor Günther Kaufmann, to California-based performer Sylvester—Gaines explores how shared signs of racial legacy and resistance politics are articulated with regional distinction. Bringing the lens forward through contemporary art performance at the 2015 Venice Biennial, Gaines connects the idea of sixties radicality to today’s interest in that history, explores the aspects of those politics that are lost in translation, and highlights the black expressive strategies that have maintained potent energy. Black Performance on the Outskirts of the Left articulates the role black theatricality played in the radical energy of the sixties, following the evolution of black identity politics to reveal blackness’s ability to transform contemporary social conditions.

Poetry. "Maybe Dennis Cooper and Jeff Clark and Eileen Myles and a few other divinities paved the way for some of Ben Fama's smartly contemporary tone, but the result is all his own: funny, horny, blas,,insouciant, complicated, allusive, and bristling with mixed messages—like a Baudelairean Dionysusincarnated as a reticent anesthesiologist under house arrest for unspeakable, thrilling crimes."—Wayne Koestenbaum "A text whose origins are mysterious as a mood ring, MALL WITCH's strange teenage magic is as much Facebook and tumblr as it is Brooklyn's makeshift clubs and pop-up art galleries. Fama's lyric-meme love poems evoke a present already passing, casting their spell with a winky smiley and 'pearlson a thin wrist. That's as far as [they'll] go.'"—Kate Durbin "The last day anybody had a right to be bored in the 21st century was the day before Beyonce made a Tumblr. Taking a paratactic plunge off of that Niagara Falls of content: past smiling yachts, royal photos of a bread called 'Hovis,' fleeting grasses, one feels profoundly that heaven has become aplace on earth. Even if it is, finally, Beyonce's world and we just happen to live in it, MALL WITCH makes a claim for our own magnificent productions of glorious ephemera. Perhaps they are only glorious as a crystalline booger that uncannily resembles Obama or, like, being in love. But MALL WITCH understands profoundly that glamour means enchantment, and enchantment is a virus. As we learn what consequences our technologies have on our mobile, booger-holding, bodies IRL, we're going to need works like MALL WITCH to be our mirror."—Brandon Brown "Which witch bewitches us in Ben Fama's MALL WITCH? Which twitchy young thing, which moll, might troll this mall? Fama's work suggests a flaneur of the twenty-first century, equally disposed to wander the virtual landscape of hyper-smooth curves that backdrops these pages (designed by Paul Legault and Joseph Kaplan) as the hallways and food court of Westfield Shoppingtown. The book's design and text are inseparable, making a catty chatterbox that wears its influences on its sleeve: Ariana Reines and Kate Durbin become brands alongside Four Loko, IKEA, and Blackberry. Part homage, part inside joke, these poems poke a manicured fingernail in this moment of self-presentation, self-consciouslydating themselves because, in true Narcissistic fashion, they would like to date themselves."—Amaranth Borsuk "The immediacy of a tender escapade as it arrows into your ardent third eye, it's here within the MALL WITCH, a window into the soul you thought you had ahold of. Ah, there's a poet behind this mirror big enough for two. Before I die / I want you to be new. It wasn't just a nice plan, it was a fucking miracle, so eat now and drink!! Don't be stupid by your jaw, come to know this as another real poetry!! Don't even run, just let the MALL WITCH nail you!!"—CAConrad

Dr. Walker lays out his program on how to become younger which he partly defines as having all or most of the attributes of youth, health, energy, vitality and perpetual laughter on the lips and in the eyes. The key to accessing both more energy and more vitality lies in changing our eating, drinking, and living habits. Dr. Walker encourages people to develop a very definite philosophy he calls Right Thinking, which is maintaining a positive outlook and positive thoughts about themselves and others. Together with the other principles outlined in his program, he offers readers knowledge that gives them the courage to make the changes necessary. Readers are given a brief yet concise introduction to different parts of our anatomy and how these systems work for and against us, depending upon the food we consume. Dr. Walker recommends changing old eating habits to include natural, nourishing foods. The use of juicing, fasting, and eating natural, organic foods in their unprocessed forms, including mostly raw fruits and vegetables, play an important role in maintaining good health. Through his personal observations, experience, and knowledge, Dr. Walker provides the information needed to stay younger.

The telephone marks the place of an absence. Affiliated with discontinuity, alarm, and silence, it raises fundamental questions about the constitution of self and other, the stability of location, systems of transfer, and the destination of speech. Profoundly changing our concept of long-distance, it is constantly transmitting effects of real and evocative power. To the extent that it always relates us to the absent other, the telephone, and the massive switchboard attending it, plugs into a hermeneutics of mourning. The Telephone Book, itself organized by a "telephonic logic," fields calls from philosophy, history, literature, and psychoanalysis. It installs a switchboard that hooks up diverse types of knowledge while rerouting and jamming the codes of the disciplines in daring ways. Avital Ronell has done nothing less than consider the impact of the telephone on modern thought. Her highly original, multifaceted inquiry into the nature of communication in a technological age will excite everyone who listens in. The book begins by calling close attention to the importance of the telephone in Nazi organization and propaganda, with special regard to the philosophy of Martin Heidegger. In the Third Reich the telephone became a weapon, a means of state surveillance, "an open accomplice to lies." Heidegger, in Being and Time and elsewhere, elaborates on the significance of "the call." In a tour de force response, Ronell mobilizes the history and terminology of the telephone to explicate his difficult philosophy. Ronell also speaks of the appearance of the telephone in the literary works of Duras, Joyce, Kafka, Rilke, and Strindberg. She examines its role in psychoanalysis—Freud said that the unconscious is structured like a telephone, and Jung and R. D. Laing saw it as a powerful new body part. She traces its historical development from Bell's famous first call: "Watson, come here!" Thomas A. Watson, his assistant, who used to communicate with spirits, was eager to get the telephone to talk, and thus to link technology with phantoms and phantasms. In many ways a meditation on the technologically constituted state, The Telephone Book opens a new field, becoming the first political deconstruction of technology, state terrorism, and schizophrenia. And it offers a fresh reading of the American and European addiction to technology in which the telephone emerges as the crucial figure of this age.

Recent years have seen a revival of the heated culture wars of the 1990s, but this time its battle ground is the internet. On one side the "alt right" ranges from the once obscure neo-reactionary and white separatist movements, to geeky subcultures like 4chan, to more mainstream manifestations such as the Trump-supporting gay libertarian Milo Yiannopolous. On the other side, a culture of struggle sessions and virtue signalling lurks behind a therapeutic language of trigger warnings and safe spaces. The feminist side of the online culture wars has its equally geeky subcultures right through to its mainstream expression. Kill All Normies explores some of the cultural genealogies and past parallels of these styles and subcultures, drawing from transgressive styles of 60s libertinism and conservative movements, to make the case for a rejection of the perpetual cultural turn.

"You don't have to accept the 'death sentence' offered by other medical systems," Dr. Morse has told thousands of patients over the years. Since 1972, he has directed a health clinic in Florida, successfully helping people cure themselves of cancer, diabetes, M.S., Crohn's disease, along with both brain and nerve damage. His "miracle" approach is fully detailed in this comprehensive book. The cause of illness is poison (acidosis), i.e., toxins from our food, water and air. No genuine healing can proceed in such a toxified environment. Morse's system is to treat the cause of illness, not the symptoms! The Detox Miracle Sourcebook shows you how to use raw foods and herbs as of the primary means of detoxification, healing, and ultimate regeneration of weak or diseased cells. This book is called a "sourcebook" because of the vast reference material it contains. The author presents a complete overview of every bodily system and every organ. He details the causes of "breakdown" in each system and recommends natural means - raw foods and herbs -- for cleansing, and then strengthening of each part. Comprehensive charts and tables specify the sources for and uses of vitamins, major minerals, trace minerals, cell salts, herbs, fruits and vegetables, essential oils, phytochemicals. His chapters on what to expect as you detoxify are especially valuable. Morse describes the natural "side effects" (from the mild to the extreme) of releasing toxins from the body. He explains in commonsense terms how to encourage this "healing crisis" while at the same time maintaining overall balance in the body. He also offers dramatic accounts of how his own patients have healed themselves of chronic and acute conditions by using these methods. Two detox "miracle" diets are offered as the core of his natural cleansing system. He offers suggestions for the use of fresh juices, recipes for raw foods and a selection of cooked dishes that will gently ease even the timid into the process. Other outstanding features include: lists of the toxic chemicals commonly found in foods, air, water; a massive glossary of medical and nutritional terms; a Resource Guide for where and how to acquire healthy foods, oils, bodycare products, educational materials, etc.; an extensive Bibliography.
