21 Dog Years, Doing Time at Amazon.com by Mike Daisey

Amazon.com is hiring and they're looking for freaks.


Something for the Ghosts by David Constantine

These poems are populated by the dead, the silent, the voiceless and the absent ...


Spike Lee: Interviews edited by Cynthia Fuchs

Some day critics will stop calling Lee the "black Woody Allen" or an "African-American filmmaker" (or even a "controversial" one) but simply acknowledge him as one of the most intelligent, articulate, and able filmmakers of our generation.


Media Unlimited: How the Torrent of Images and Sounds Overwhelms Our Lives by Todd Gitlin

. . . a sound overview of how we have become affected -- or disaffected -- by the media.


Heartbeat of the People: Music and Dance of the Northern Pow-wow by Tara Browner

the members of First Nation manage to maintain their sense of humor, bantering with wit and aplomb that go a long way toward reminding us that there are a few oases of ideas to be found in the vast wasteland of spam, scams, and bad sex that cyberspace has become.


A Dream of Wolves by Michael C. White

Mr. White depicts the people as they are, without a hint of condescension or judgment of those who choose to live in the mountains by their own rules.


Dave Matthews Band: Step Into the Light, Revised 2nd Ed. by Morgan Delancey

Their high caliber of musicianship allows them to improvise live, something many bands neither have the ability nor the willingness to do.


Anarchy by James Robert Baker

Sexual minorities have made progress but TV shows and beer ads only show that companies view them as a commercially viable group.


American Scream: the Bill Hicks Story by Cynthia True

The life of Bill Hicks is the definition of a life fulfilled.

Trading Spaces

The dynamic concept intrigued me from the start, but if the participants and crew weren't enjoying themselves, well, it would be like watching Martha Stewart.


Buffy the Vampire Slayer

As to the rejection of my understanding of the connection between lesbianism and witchcraft on 'Buffy', I have never said that BVS's creator or writers made a conscious (and consciously homophobic) decision to directly cast lesbianism as social pathology and physical addiction.
