787 Cliparts 4

Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto is a collection of eighteen comedic essays on popular culture written by Chuck Klosterman, a writer for Esquire and Spin magazine. The book's unifying theme is that analytical thinking can be applied to consumer culture in the same manner that academics and critics have traditionally employed when writing about fine art and ideology.

Klosterman presents his essays as if they are tracks on a CD. Between each essay, or track, is an "interlude"—a short, entertaining blurb linking the essays. The following essays are included in Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs:

"Dance Monkeys Dance 4" by BillyWarhol [?]
Dance Monkeys Dance 4

* 1. This Is Emo : Klosterman recounts "fake love" we are conditioned to pursue, and the false, unbalanced nature of When Harry Met Sally.

* 2. Billy Sim : Klosterman describes his experience with the reality-mimicking videogame The Sims and how The Sims illustrates that "even eternally free people are enslaved by the process of living."

* 3. What Happens When People Stop Being Polite : The impacts of MTV's The Real World and how it led to the development of one-dimensional personalities.

"Visit from the Dead Dog 4" by BillyWarhol [?]

* 4. Every Dog Must Have His Every Day, Every Drunk Must Have His Drink : An ode to Billy Joel, particularly the universality of his album Glass Houses.

"Hello, Dave? ;)) 4 Liquid Lucidity*" by BillyWarhol [?]

* 5. Appetite for Replication : Klosterman interviews and spends a few days with the members of a Guns N' Roses tribute band, "Paradise City," and outlines the significance of tribute bands.

* 6. Ten Seconds to Love : An analysis of how American culture is upset with the unrealistic images of success it has created, as stemming from a discussion of the Pamela-Tommy sex tape.

"Electroland 4 WEB3D.0" by BillyWarhol [?]
Electroland 4 WEB3D.0

* 7. George Will vs. Nick Hornby : A rant against soccer (particularly among youth), claiming it supports Outcast Culture.

* 8. 33 : Klosterman explains how the 1980's rivalry between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics symbolizes all rivalries in life, including politics, religion, and race.

"Banksy Advert 4" by BillyWarhol [?]
Banksy Advert 4

* 9. Porn : An explanation of how the Internet has proliferated the porn industry, as per the need of the presence of the amateur and celebrity in our lives.

* 10. The Lady or the Tiger : A brief history of the cereal industry, and how Kelloggs was begun as a religious company, but now is a microcosm for coolness. The "cocoa puffs" in the title comes from this essay.

* 11. Being Zack Morris : An analysis of Saved by the Bell and how "important things are inevitable cliché."

"Hexstatic Deadly Media 4" by BillyWarhol [?]
Hexstatic Deadly Media 4

* 12. Sulking with Lisa Loeb on the Ice Planet Hoth : Why Star Wars is so overrated, and how it has come to represent basic morality.

* 13. The Awe-Inspiring Beauty of Tom Cruise's Shattered, Troll-like Face A discussion of the question "What is reality?" as answered by movies such as Vanilla Sky, The Matrix, and Waking Life.

* 14. Toby over Moby : How the Dixie Chicks are the new Van Halen, as they are one of the only pop bands with musical quality, and how Van Halen's teenage boys have been replaced by the Dixie Chick's teenage girls. Also how music taste is used to gauge coolness, and those who ignorantly say they like all kinds "except country" only say so to appear cool.

"Drink Moving 4" by BillyWarhol [?]
Drink Moving 4

* 15. This is Zodiac Speaking : A description of three people Klosterman has interviewed which have known or met serial killers, and an exploration of "What does it mean to know a serial killer?"

* 16. All I Know Is What I Read in the Papers : Most of the media's bias is accidental, and stories are mainly developed by circumstance and by the interviewee who calls the journalist back first. Also how sports reporters hate sports, and how newspapers are designed for those that cannot read.

"Gay Bar 4" by BillyWarhol [?]
Gay Bar 4

* 17. I, Rock Chump : Klosterman narrates his visit to the 2002 Pop Music Studies Conference by the Experience Music Project, and how it was largely an experience without rock and roll.

* 18. How to Disappear Completely and Never Be Found : A commentary on the Left Behind Series and the lifestyle of Evangelical Christians. The chapter title refers to the book How to Disappear Completely and Never Be Found by Doug Richmond.

Clyde Jackson Browne (born October 9, 1948) is an American rock music singer, songwriter, guitarist, and pianist, whose introspective lyrics made him the poster boy of the Southern California confessional singer-songwriter movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. In 2004, Browne was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by fellow American musical artist and good friend, Bruce Springsteen. Browne also received, in 2004, an honorary Doctorate of Music from Occidental College in Los Angeles, for "a remarkable musical career that has successfully combined an intensely personal artistry with a broader vision of social justice."

A precociously gifted songwriter, Browne signed a publishing contract with Nina Music, and his songs were performed by Joan Baez, Tom Rush, The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, the Byrds and Steve Noonan, among others. After moving to Greenwich Village, New York, Browne was briefly in Tim Buckley's back-up band. He also worked on Nico's Chelsea Girl, both by playing guitar and penning the classic song "These Days". After leaving New York City, Browne formed a folk band with Ned Doheny and Jack Wilce. Except from the previous short period of living in New York, Browne has, to this day, lived in Southern California.

In 1971, Browne signed with Asylum Records and released Jackson Browne (1972), which included the piano-driven "Doctor My Eyes", a Top 10 hit in the US singles chart. "Rock Me on the Water", from the same album, also gained considerable radio airplay, while "Jamaica Say You Will" and "Song for Adam" helped establish Browne's reputation as a versatile and original writer with a deep thinking, sometimes downbeat, but always romantic flair. During this period, he also toured with Linda Ronstadt.

His next album, For Everyman (1973) — while considered of high quality — was less successful than his debut album, although it still sold a million copies. The upbeat "Take It Easy," co-written with The Eagles' Glenn Frey, had already been a big hit for that group, while "These Days" (actually written by Browne and first recorded by Nico in 1967) captured the essence of Browne's youthful, morose angst. The title track, meanwhile, was the first of Browne's studies of personal exploration, soul-searching, and despair set against the backdrop of a decaying society.

"eye remember this too" by lavenderlou [?]

Late for the Sky (1974) consolidated Browne's following, with some fans drawn in purely by the record's intriguing, Magritte-inspired cover. Highlights included the searching, heartbreaking title song, the elegiac "For a Dancer" and the apocalyptic "Before the Deluge". The arrangements featured the evocative violin and guitar of David Lindley, Jai Winding's outstanding piano, and the stellar harmonies of Doug Haywood. The title track was also featured in Martin Scorsese's film Taxi Driver. Around this time, Browne began his fractious but lifelong professional relationship with singer/songwriter Warren Zevon, mentoring Zevon's first two Asylum albums through the studio as a producer after browbeating Asylum head David Geffen into giving Zevon a recording contract.

"me" by lavenderlou [?]

Browne's disaffected, wondering character struck out even more starkly in his next album, The Pretender, which is arguably his darkest. It was released in 1976, after the suicide of his wife, Phyllis. The album features stronger production by Jon Landau and a mixture of styles, ranging from the Mariachi-inspired peppiness of "Linda Paloma" to the country-driven "Your Bright Baby Blues" to the near-hopeless sadness and surrender of "Sleep's Dark and Silent Gate". Title track "The Pretender" is Browne's magnum opus, a vivid account of romanticism losing the battle with the realities of day-to-day life. "Here Come Those Tears Again" was cowritten by Nancy Farnsworth, the mother of Browne's first wife Phyllis Major, following Phyllis' untimely death.

By then, Browne's work had gained a reputation for its compelling melodies, clear, honest, and insightful lyrics, and a flair for composition rarely seen in the world of rock and roll. He was often referred to as "a thinking man's rock star."

James Van Der Zee (June 29, 1886 - May 15, 1983) was an African American photographer best known for his portraits of black New Yorkers. He was a leading figure in the Harlem Renaissance. Aside from the artistic merits of his work, Van Der Zee captured the most comprehensive documentation of the period. Among his most famous subjects during this time were Marcus Garvey, Bill "Bojangles" Robinson and Countee Cullen.

"Harlem Portraits by VanDerZee*" by BillyWarhol [?]

Van Der Zee was originally from Lenox, Massachusetts; he soon traveled to New York with his brother and father. He was a skilled pianist and an aspiring professional violinist, but hated painting. The five-piece Harlem Orchestra was created by Van Der Zee, in which he also performed. He discovered photography as a hobby in his hometown of Lenox. At age fourteen he received his first camera from a magazine promotion. His interest with the toy camera led him to getting a slightly better camera with which he would take hundreds of photographs of the town and his family. He was only the second person in Lenox to own a camera, and he developed the images himself. This early start led him to a vast and prolific career documenting each decade in his unique style.

Moving to New York, music lessons were a prime source of income for Van Der Zee. At age 29, he worked as a dark room technician at Gertz Department Store in Newark, New Jersey. He would substitute as a photographer when his employer was unavailable. Patrons enjoyed his creative manner of shooting subjects. This encouraged him to open his own studio, Guarantee Photography, within two years, and he was immediately successful. In 1932, he outgrew his first studio and went on to open the larger GGG Studio, with his second wife as his assistant (since closed, but the building with its original sign can still be seen at Lenox Avenue and 129th Street in Harlem). In these studios, many visual techniques were employed using props, architectural elements and costumes in the tradition of the Victorian and Edwardian eras. So much time was taken in posing his subjects that he often only could do three sittings a day.

During the Great Depression, and as the availability of personal cameras severely lessened the need of professional photography, the gap was filled by shooting passport photographs and miscellaneous photographic jobs to make a living. After World War II, he survived via commissions and in the field of photo restoration.

National recognition was given to him at age 82, when his collection of 75,000 photographs spanning a period of six decades of African-American life was discovered by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. His photos were featured in 1969 as part of the Harlem on my Mind exhibition. From the 1970s until his death in 1983, Van Der Zee photographed the many celebrities who had come across his work and promoted him throughout the country. He was known to have brought the spirit of Harlem to life.

Works by Van Der Zee are artistic as well as technically proficient. His work was in high demand in part due to his experimentation and skill in retouching negatives and in double exposures. One theme that recurs in his photographs was the emergent Black middle class, which he captured using traditional techniques in often idealistic images. Negatives were retouched to show the glamor and aura of perfection. This would affect the likeness of the person photographed, but he felt each photo should transcend beyond the subject.

"WashroomSeXXX Always FUN!!" by BillyWarhol [?]
WashroomSeXXX Always FUN!!

Van Der Zee sometimes combined several photos in one image in order to present the scene as he thought it should have been. He did not limit himself to the studio, and photographed street scenes, funerals, parades, and children. In one case, he added a ghostly child to an image of a wedding to suggest the couple's future. A funeral image was superimposed upon a photograph of a dead woman to give the feeling of her eerie presence.

"ABSOLUT WARHOL* ;))" by BillyWarhol [?]

Van Der Zee was a working photographer who supported himself through portraiture, and who devoted time to his professional work before his more artistic compositions. Many famous residents of Harlem were included among his subjects. In addition to portraits, Van Der Zee photographed organizations, events, and other businesses.
