A Bad Man Gets Badder My name is Harald Runestorm. In real life, I help children with their homework and volunteer in a library project for homeless refugees (due to a probation order), but in my spare time, I log into the World of the Greenwood and kill people for fun. Sometimes I torture them too, and I generally rob them, but other days I stay in my tower and craft things. One day, from a shady informant, I heard about a shipment of ore going through the woods. It seemed the Druids Guild was taking its gold to market, so I thought I'd take it off them. I've always hated hippies, with their 'respect the woods' and 'pet butterflies' attitude to life. I wanted them to respect my sword and pet my fist. My Runefist that is. With their face. I went down to the woods to teach them a lesson about pain and loss. Then I learned a lesson myself. A LitRPG short story (15,280 words!) set in The World of The Greenwood MMO. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Damon Alums.

Die Hippie-Bewegung als friedfertige Rebellion der Jugend ist in den 60er Jahren in den westlichen Gesellschaften entstanden. Langhaarig und farbenfroh gekleidet, protestierten ihre Anhänger gegen die ihrer Meinung nach spießige und sinnentleerte, einzig auf Wohlstand und Konsum ausgerichtete Kultur ihrer Eltern. Ihre von gesellschaftlichen Zwängen und Tabus freie Lebensauffassung wurde von der älteren Generation oft als Provokation empfunden. Tatsächlich waren die Blumenkinder auf der Suche nach einer humaneren Lebensweise, nach Harmonie mit der Welt und mit sich selbst. Matala an der Südküste von Kreta war ein Zentrum der Bewegung. Der Fotoband Mythos Matala fängt in Bild und Text ein, wie Jugendliche aus aller Welt in den Höhlen an der malerischen Bucht von Matala damals nach ihren Vorstellungen und nach ihrer Devise love & peace ein einfaches und glückliches Leben zu führen versuchten. The hippie movement was the playful, peaceful side of the 1960s counterculture. Its unkempt, psychedelically clad proponents rejected their parents¿ "square¿ culture, with its self-serving creed of prosperity, and the "squares¿ were repelled by the hippies¿ subversion of societal norms and taboos. But the flower children were anything but naysayers. Troubled by the shadows of war and longing to feel a sense of harmony with the world they lived in, young people took to the road in search of self. And for quite a few of them, the journey included a stop in Matala. The Myth of Matala commemorates that unforgettable time. Lavishly illustrated with historic professional and amateur photos, the book shows young people from around the world as they attempted to live up to their ideals of love and peace by reducing life to its elements. In the primitive cave dwellings of Matala, a picturesque bay on the south coast of Crete, bliss was there for the taking ¿ if sometimes only for a few weeks.

Girl With Dove: A Life Built By Books , Hörbuch...

This audiobook includes an exclusive interview between the author, Sally Bayley, and a mentee of Sally’s, Georgie Newson, who first met when they read Jane Eyre together. They talk about the stories that have been woven into the book, the reflective nature of literature, the influence of Jane Eyre on their lives and much more. Sally grew up in a dilapidated house by the sea where men were forbidden, her childhood world filled with mystery and intrigue. Hippies trailed through the kitchen looking for God - their leader was Aunt Di, who ruled the house with charismatic force. When Sally’s baby brother vanished from his pram, she became suspicious of the activities going on around her. What happened to Baby David and the woman called Poor Sue? And where did all the people singing and wailing prayers in the front room suddenly go? Disappearing into a world of books and reading, Sally adopts the tried and tested methods of Miss Marple. Taking books for hints and clues, she turns herself into a reading detective. Her discovery of Jane Eyre marks the beginning of a vivid journey through Victorian literature, where she also finds the kind, eccentric figure of Charles Dickens’ Betsey Trotwood. These characters soon become her heroines, acting as a part of an alternative family, offering humour and guidance during many difficult moments in Sally’s life. Combining the voices of literary characters with those of her real-life counterparts, Girl with Dove reads as a magical series of strange encounters, climaxing with a comic performance of Shakespeare in the children’s home where Sally is eventually sent. Weaving literary classics with a young girl’s coming of age story, this is a book that testifies to the transformative power of reading and the literary imagination. Mixing fairy tale, literary classics, nursery rhymes and folklore, it is the story of a child’s adventure in wonderland and search for truth in an adult w 1. Language: English.

Wild Ones: A Sometimes Dismaying, Weirdly Reass...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Field notes from an age of extinction, tracking the ever-shifting meaning of America’s animals throughout history to understand the current moment. Journalist Jon Mooallem has watched his little daughter’s world overflow with animals - butterfly pajamas, appliquéd owls - while the actual world she’s inheriting slides into a great storm of extinction. Half of all species could disappear by the end of the century, and scientists now concede that most of America’s endangered animals will survive only if conservationists keep rigging the world around them in their favor. So Mooallem ventures into the field, often taking his daughter with him, to move beyond childlike fascination and make those creatures feel more real. Wild Ones is a tour through our environmental moment and the eccentric cultural history of people and wild animals in America that inflects it - from Thomas Jefferson’s celebrations of early abundance to the turn-of-the-last-century origins of the teddy bear to the whale-loving hippies of the 1970s. In America, Wild Ones discovers, wildlife has always inhabited the terrain of our imagination as much as the actual land. The journey is framed by the stories of three modern-day endangered species: the polar bear, victimized by climate change and ogled by tourists outside a remote, northern town; the little-known Lange’s metalmark butterfly, foundering on a shred of industrialized land near San Francisco; and the whooping crane as it’s led on a months-long migration by costumed men in ultralight airplanes. The wilderness that Wild Ones navigates is a scrappy, disorderly place where amateur conservationists do grueling, sometimes preposterous looking work; where a marketer maneuvers to control the polar bear’s image; and Martha Stewart turns up to film those beasts for her show on the Hallmark Channel. Our most comforting ideas about nature unravel. In their place, Mooallem forges a new and affirming visio 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fred Sanders.

Evangeline Murray, a young widow from Ohio, is recruited by the Women’s Freedom Movement to represent the spirit of modern womanhood by plunging over Niagara Falls in a barrel. Evangeline eagerly embraces her fate, until she begins to understand the risk she is taking. Joshua McClaren, a veteran of World War I, and the best boatman on the river, reluctantly agrees to launch the headstrong Evangeline. Joshua has seen hundreds of bodies surface in the whirlpool below the falls and has faced death on the battlefields of Flanders, so he has no respect for the charming, impetuous Mrs. Murray. Before the barrel can be launched, each of them will have to face their own demons and the Niagara River will claim another life. Inspired by true stories of the falls, Whirlpool is a thrilling romance.  The Serbian Solution A kidnapping, a woman’s suppressed deadly memory, a nation’s future at stake....In a drug-induced dream in a US hospital, Lizbeth retrieves a suppressed memory from her European childhood that leads to her own kidnapping and a wild chase across England and Wales in the company of a reluctant American doctor.

Environmental Problems Faced By Kovalam Beach
39,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Beach Tourism is the most important tourism sector in Kerala. The long coastline of Kerala is inextricably entwined with the culture, life and tradition of the state. Memories of early seafarers and traders have faced, but boats of various types and styles have survived. Kerala`s beaches, or Kovalam to be more specific, were rediscovered by back-packers and tan-seekers in the sixties. Hordes of hippies followed in the seventies. That started the transformation of the casual fishing village into a busy tourist destination. In 2002, there were 66 hotels in Kovalam and that too in a place that is just 16 km from the state capital Thiruvananthapuram. The beach is not just a favorite holiday destination, it's our favorite place to live. Around the world, coastlines have been steadily turned into new housing and tourist developments and many beaches all but disappear under flocks of holiday makers each year. This intense human presence is taking its toll on marine life.

'Intelligent and highly nuanced… This book may bring tears to your eyes.' -- San Francisco Chronicle Journalist Jon Mooallem has watched his little daughter's world overflow with animals butterfly pajamas, appliquéd owls-while the actual world she's inheriting slides into a great storm of extinction.

With propulsive curiosity and searing wit, and without the easy moralizing and nature worship of environmental journalism's older guard, Wild Ones merges reportage, science, and history into a humane and endearing meditation on what it means to live in, and bring a life into, a broken world.

Disruptive Play: The Trickster in Politics and ...
27,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Disruptive Play: The Trickster in Politics and Culture journeys from ancient folkloric appearances of Tricksters such as Raven and È¿ù-Elegba, to their confined role in Western civilization, and then on to Trickster's 20th century jailbreak as led by dada and the hippies. Disruptive Play bears witness to how this spirit informs social progress today, whether by Anonymous, Banksy, Bugs Bunny, or unrevealed mischief-makers and culture jammers. Such play is revolutionary and lights the path to a transformed society. Original Play is the frolic and noncompetitive play that animals and human babies do in order to have fun and to keep on playing...not to win or to lose. It is a substance of the universe that occurs in all life. It is the behavior by which love and belonging are expressed, given, and received. When play moves into contest or other roles and rules, with winners and losers, it becomes Cultural Play. Issues of ego and narcissism are issues for Cultural Play, not for Original Play. Disruptive Play occurs in the rare times when the rhythms of Original Play suddenly appear in a political or cultural setting, settings conventionally fraught with Cultural Play. Like driving a clown car across the field during an official NFL game. Or Raven tricking Chief into releasing the sun, the moon, and the stars into the sky. Or a surreptitious Banksy graffiti that invades a museum or the public commons. Tricking power into performing an act of love. Disruptive Play: The Trickster In Politics and Culture connects knowledge from mythology, folklore, popular culture, art, politics, and play theory to make its casethatto be playful means not taking power seriously. At critical mass, power collapses and leaves us swimming about in the waters of the amoral Trickster.New values emerge and could lead to some version of the dystopia that currently drenches popular culture. Or, if people can discern between the authentic contact and exhilaration of play, and branded, mediated, alienated pleasure, then we just might stumble and frolic our way to the Play Society. Disurptive Play is ideal for enthusiasts of the human condition and those who hold out for the vision, however slim, of the Play Society.
