In his ongoing quest for great sex--and maybe, just maybe something more--Alex has had enough rock-hard men, anonymous hook-ups, and kinky parties to make his blog, www.thegreatcockhunt.com, worth all the attention it's been getting. Now Alex pens his first novel, taking his blog fans back to his "early" days in college and discovering how he became the hot gay stud he is today! With so many memories and fantasies still lingering from college, Alex gears up for a satisfying trip down cock memory lane. With his friends Lizzie and Tommy, he wants to find out who got married, who came out, and of course, get some tail while he's at it. . . The adventures begin when Alex sees his old flame with a new boytoy--and hooks up with both of them. But where there's history, there's complication, and Alex's never-ending pursuit for great cock takes him on a no-holds barred journey of guy-swapping, seducing straight dudes, mind-blowing orgies, and marathon-sex sessions that only rev him up for his next wild encounter. . .
At this very moment, you are surrounded by sound. Pause for a minute and try to listen to it all: the chatter of a passing conversation, the gentle whoosh of air vents, noise from a nearby street, someone turning the pages of a book, birds chirping in the trees. We rarely pay attention to everything we hear, but every noise in our environment has the ability to change our mood, decrease our productivity, even affect our health. While sound can heal, both emotionally and physically, it can also hurt us. In this engaging book, bestselling author and music expert Don Campbell (The Mozart Effect®) teams up with Alex Doman, a specialist in the practical application of sound, to show how we can use music and silence throughout our day to not only change how we feel but alter how we physically function. The authors delve into more than a decades' worth of research, from studies on aging to groundbreaking brain science, in order to illustrate how noise affects us for better and for worse. Walking readers through every aspect of their daily lives -- from the morning commute to getting a restful night's sleep -- Don and Alex provide practical advice and exercises so you can create perfect soundtracks for every task, combining music you already love with new favorites. In addition, the authors share nearly one hundred active links to music, video, and downloads in the book that help support their advice and show how others use the inspiring force of music to improve their lives. Combining the joy of music with the strength of science, Healing at the Speed of Sound(tm) will set you on the path to a full, rich, and truly harmonious life.
Insurgent Encounters illuminates the dynamics of contemporary transnational social movements, including those advocating for women and indigenous groups, environmental justice, and alternative--cooperative rather than exploitative--forms of globalization. The contributors are politically engaged scholars working within the social movements they analyze. Their essays are both models of and arguments for activist ethnography. They demonstrate that such a methodology has the potential to reveal empirical issues and generate theoretical insights beyond the reach of traditional social-movement research methods. Activist ethnographers not only produce new understandings of contemporary forms of collective action, but also seek to contribute to struggles for social change. The editors suggest networks and spaces of encounter as the most useful conceptual rubrics for understanding shape-shifting social movements using digital and online technologies to produce innovative forms of political organization across local, regional, national, and transnational scales. A major rethinking of the practice and purpose of ethnography, Insurgent Encounters challenges dominant understandings of social transformation, political possibility, knowledge production, and the relation between intellectual labor and sociopolitical activism.
