Firepool - Experiences In An Abnormal World (Paperback): Hedley Twidle Firepool - Experiences In An Abnormal World (Paperback)
Hedley Twidle 1
R251 Discovery Miles 2 510 In stock

This collection brims with the imaginative, informative and comic personal narratives of Hedley Twidle. Twidle brings a sense of lightness, play and comedy to subjects that are often dealt with in predictable or self-righteous ways.

It chronicles South Africa during the ‘second transition’ – one in which the foundations of the post-apartheid settlement are being shaken and questioned in all kinds of ways.

Now We Are 40 - Whatever Happened To Generation X? (Hardcover): Tiffanie Darke Now We Are 40 - Whatever Happened To Generation X? (Hardcover)
Tiffanie Darke 3
R387 R305 Discovery Miles 3 050 Save R82 (21%) In stock

What happened to Generation X? Millenials dominate our Facebook feeds and people bang on about the baby boomers - but what about us? The lost generation, the middle youth, the middle child of today. Are we still cool?

Generation X? Remember them? The kids who believed they'd never grow up. The generation Douglas Coupland immortalised in his novel of the same name. The wry, knowing navel-gazers obsessed with cool and being cool who today are sandwiched between the boomers of the 60s and the millennials. Gen X'ers came of age against a backdrop of Britpop and the Spice Girls, Tarantino and Pulp Fiction, Madchester and the Stone Roses, acid house and rave, super clubs, Ministry and Cream. They holidayed in Ibiza high on hooch and E and never ever believed there'd be a comedown. So whatever happened to them? We turned 40. And as Tiffanie Darke points out in this witty exploration of the generation who defied generalisation, we're not handling it all that well...

Where once we wore floaty skirts and Doc Martins, now we're sporting Scandi fashion and 'interesting' trainers. We still party in Ibiza but now bodyboard in Cornwall. Where once mixtapes were the ultimate mating call, now we take selfies and swap Spotify playlists - all the while conspicuously wearing large Dr Beats headphones and casually leaving old packets of Kingsize Rizla lying round our open plan kitchens. More to the point, Gen X are now in charge. In government, in business and the creative industries. The most anti-establishment of generations has now become the establishment. But as tech overtakes the arts as society's great shaping force, Tiffanie ponders - does cool and its pursuit still matter?

If Gen X had it sorted, gave us Barack Obama and downward facing dogs, why is stress the new flu? Why are we working not for love anymore - or cool - but to avoid negative equity and depleting pension pots? In Now We Are 40, Tiffanie interviews some of the most iconic Gen X'ers such as Pearl Lowe, Richard Reed and Blur's bassist Alex James to look at how Gen X live their life in between being young and old, and how it feels to want to burn down the establishment only to realise that now you are the establishment.

Writing What We Like - A New Generation Speaks (Paperback): Yolisa Qunta Writing What We Like - A New Generation Speaks (Paperback)
Yolisa Qunta 1
R211 Discovery Miles 2 110 In stock

"We still dream, but the innocence of the promise of freedom is lost."

From the serious to the lighthearted, this book presents a snapshot of what smart young South Africans think about living in South Africa today. From black tax and whitesplaining, all the way to hip hop and kinky sex, it is provocative, fearlessly honest, and often very funny. Shaka Sisulu tackles being black and privileged, Simphiwe Dana pleads for mother tongue education, Yolisa Qunta shares lessons learnt from taking the taxi, while David Kau, Loyiso Gola and Sivuyile Ngesi provide comic relief.

Writing What We Like will spark debates in workplaces, in bars, and around the dinner table both in ekasi and in the suburbs for some time to come.

Why do most people know what an Ewok is, even if they haven't seen Return of the Jedi? How have Star Wars action figures come to outnumber human beings? How did 'Jedi' become an officially recognised religion? When did the films' merchandising revenue manage to rival the GDP of a small country?

Tracing the birth, death and rebirth of the epic universe built by George Lucas and hundreds of writers, artists, producers, and marketers, Chris Taylor jousts with modern-day Jedi, tinkers with droid builders, and gets inside Boba Fett's helmet, all to find out how Star Wars has attracted and inspired so many fans for so long.

Deon Maas
R226 Discovery Miles 2 260 In stock

Skreeusnaaks en uittartend soos net Deon Maas kan.

In hierdie boek ontsien Maas niks of niemand nie. Hy skryf onbeskaamd en doodeerlik oor allerlei eg Suid-Afrikaanse heilige koeie. Afrikaans op kampusse, selfies, baarde, banting, die Guptas en die sogenaamde Stellenbosch Mafia loop deur onder die uitgesproke skrywer se skerp pen. Sy blatante eerlikheid oor alles van mans se “menere” tot Julius Malema, gay huwelike en NG-dominees is verfrissend.

Dit is vlymskerp, omstrede en onvergeetlik.

`Dear Sir, I have never before been so incensed by a T.V. programme that I have tried to telephone from my home in the country to protest. I am sorry your number was engaged, but not surprised, as no doubt hundreds of other decent citizens were also telephoning at the same time...' For anyone who regularly feels tempted to put pen to paper, I'm Sure I Speak For Many Others is an alternative history of the BBC, from its triumphant broadcast of the coronation in 1953, to that Tynan moment, the controversial That Was The Week That Was, and the groundbreaking Grange Hill. Stretching across over forty years of programming, these never before seen letters represent the joy, the fury and the wit of the nation.

Koos Kombuis vier vanjaar sy sestigste verjaardag, en hoewel die musiek- en skrywerslegende ietwat ouer en wyser geword het, is sy kommentaar op sosiale en politieke sake nog net so skerpsinnig soos altyd. In sy jongste rubriekeversameling kom 'n verskeidenheid onderwerpe onder die soeklig, soos die stommiteite van politici, die irrasionele vrese van Afrikaners wat nog in die laer skuil, die sensitiewe ego’s van plaaslike musikante, en die wanstaltigheid van amptenare wat die banaalste vorme van burokrasie in stand hou. Maar Kombuis presteer nie net as satiriese kommentator nie. Sy ode aan sy oorlede moeder en die nostalgiese herinneringe aan sy kinderdae sal lesers diep ontroer. Bowenal verteenwoordig Kombuis se kritiese stem daardie Afrikaners wat hulleself beskou as trotse burgers van die globale dorpie – hulle wat susji kan geniet sonder om 'n gesigspier te vertrek! Ver in die wereld, sushi! is 'n keur uit die rubrieke wat tussen 2005 en 2015 verskyn het in publikasies soos Rapport, De Kat, Taalgenoot en op LitNet en Netwerk24. Kombuis-bewonderaars kan nie genoeg kry van die skrywer se sonderlinge humor, verhelderende insigte, kompromislose eerlikheid en meevoerende styl nie.

Matthew Worley
R436 Discovery Miles 4 360 Within 8 - 15 working days

'No Feelings', 'No Fun', 'No Future'. The years 1976-84 saw punk emerge and evolve as a fashion, a musical form, an attitude and an aesthetic. Against a backdrop of social fragmentation, violence, high unemployment and socio-economic change, punk rejuvenated and re-energised British youth culture, inserting marginal voices and political ideas into pop. Fanzines and independent labels flourished; an emphasis on doing it yourself enabled provincial scenes to form beyond London's media glare. This was the period of Rock Against Racism and benefit gigs for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and the striking miners. Matthew Worley charts the full spectrum of punk's cultural development from the Sex Pistols, Buzzcocks and Slits through the post-punk of Joy Division, the industrial culture of Throbbing Gristle and onto the 1980s diaspora of anarcho-punk, Oi! and goth. He recaptures punk's anarchic force as a medium through which the frustrated and the disaffected could reject, revolt and re-invent.

When Bethany first propped her camera on a stack of books and pressed record in 2009, she didn't realise her life was about to change-forever. After uploading her first video to YouTube at just thirteen years old, Bethany quickly became one of the Internet's go-to beauty, style, and lifestyle vlogger. Since then, she has filmed countless room tours and tutorials, travelled the world, experimented with hundreds of DIYs, designed her own clothing line, gone on an international tour, competed on Dancing with the Stars, and created health, beauty, and wellness content for multiple platforms. But before Bethany found her #MotaFam online, life wasn't looking so great: After being intensely bullied in school, the already shy Bethany retreated further into her shell, suffering from crippling anxiety and a lack of self-confidence she just couldn't shake. From growing up on a dairy farm in small-town Los Banos, California, to figuring out how to overcome anxiety and find her voice, to finally breaking out of her shell and learning to forge her own positive path, Make Your Mind Up is more than just a heartwarming memoir or lifestyle guide-this is a portrait of Bethany's life, exactly how she lives it.

THE NAUGHTY NINETIES: The Triumph of the American Libido examines the scandal-strafed age when our public and private lives began to blur due to the rise of the web, reality TV, and the wholesale tabloidization of pop culture. In this comprehensive and often hilarious time capsule, David Friend--an editor at Vanity Fair--combines detailed reporting with first-person accounts from many of the decade's signal personalities, from Anita Hill to Monica Lewinsky, Lorena Bobbitt to Heidi Fleiss, Alan Cumming to Joan Rivers, Jesse Jackson to key members of the Clinton, Dole, and Bush teams. THE NAUGHTY NINETIES also uncovers unsung sexual pioneers, from the enterprising sisters who dreamed up the Brazilian bikini wax to the scientists who, quite by accident, discovered Viagra--and dozens more.
