In Die Ou Met Die Snor By Die Bar vertel die superster-rapper Jack Parow van sy lewe en al sy wilde, mal avonture.
Die storie begin agter die Boereworsgordyn en maak draaie in plekke soos Onrusrivier, The Lollipop Lounge in Randburg, Mitchells Plain, België, Nederland, Londen, Los Angeles, Hollywood en Moskou.
Daar is sappige staaltjies oor wilde partytjies, warm bokkies, dodgy plekke, trance-paarties en avonture in jacuzzi’s, en hy lig ook die sluier oor sy ervarings met onder andere rofstoeiers, skoonheidskoninginne, polisiemanne, hipsters in nagklubs, ’n sanger wat hom wou bliksem, ooms wat hom van verhoë gegooi wil hê en ’n stewige tannie wat met ’n krieketkolf op hom afstorm.
Parow beantwoord ook taai vrae wat al deur mense aan hom gevra is, soos: Is dit waar wat hulle sê van ’n man met ’n lang pet? En: Hoe kry jy dit reg om jou snor so te hou dat girls dit onweerstaanbaar vind? Hy vertel die stories agter sy gewildste songs en draai nie doekies om oor wat hy van ’n klomp goed dink nie, soos die ‘ou’ Afrikaans en die ‘nuwe’ Afrikaans, die lewe in Suid-Afrika en wat dit regtig beteken om ’n rapper te wees. Die boek bevat ook die lirieke van baie van sy treffers en talle foto’s wat nog nooit voorheen gesien is nie.

This book takes you beyond the traditional boundaries of muted, delicate and translucent watercolour to create rich, vivid images, not only with watercolour on paper, but with other media and materials, while still retaining a watery feel and enhancing and expanding the possible textural effects. The projects showcase a mix of water media in familiar and unconventional, experimental ways. These include paint, ink, coloured pencils and fabric dye, with texture mediums forming part of the repertoire. While watercolour paper is used a fair amount, canvases, board and drafting paper or vellum are also incorporated. Some really simple, structured techniques have been covered, which can be followed step by step to achieve a very similar outcome and are suitable for crafty projects. Readers are also encouraged to use the more spontaneous and less controlled techniques (illustrated step by step), to further their own creative path, develop a sense of adventure, learn to take risks and work with their 'happy accidents'. There are lots of things one can do with unsuccessful work and the author has included ideas for incorporating discarded endeavours into new art work. Filled with fabulous ideas for both artists and crafters, even the absolute beginner will be able to play and experiment along with Water marks.

The outspoken actress, talk show host, and reality television star offers up a no-holds-barred memoir, including an eye-opening insider account of her tumultuous and heart-wrenching thirty-year-plus association with the Church of Scientology.
Leah Remini has never been the type to hold her tongue. That willingness to speak her mind, stand her ground, and rattle the occasional cage has enabled this tough-talking girl from Brooklyn to forge an enduring and successful career in Hollywood. But being a troublemaker has come at a cost. That was never more evident than in 2013, when Remini loudly and publicly broke with the Church of Scientology. Now, in this frank, funny, poignant memoir, the former King of Queens star opens up about that experience for the first time, revealing the in-depth details of her painful split with the church and its controversial practices.
Indoctrinated into the church as a child while living with her mother and sister in New York, Remini eventually moved to Los Angeles, where her dreams of becoming an actress and advancing Scientology’s causes grew increasingly intertwined. As an adult, she found the success she’d worked so hard for, and with it a prominent place in the hierarchy of celebrity Scientologists alongside people such as Tom Cruise, Scientology’s most high-profile adherent. Remini spent time directly with Cruise and was included among the guests at his 2006 wedding to Katie Holmes.
But when she began to raise questions about some of the church’s actions, she found herself a target. In the end, she was declared by the church to be a threat to their organization and therefore a “Suppressive Person,” and as a result, all of her fellow parishioners—including members of her own family—were told to disconnect from her. Forever.
Bold, brash, and bravely confessional, Troublemaker chronicles Leah Remini’s remarkable journey toward emotional and spiritual freedom, both for herself and for her family. This is a memoir designed to reveal the hard-won truths of a life lived honestly—from an author unafraid of the consequences.

Amy Purdy, who inspired a nation on Dancing with the Stars and has been called a hero by Oprah Winfrey, reveals the intimate details of her triumphant comeback from the brink of death to making history as a Paralympic snowboarder. In this poignant and uplifting memoir, Dancing With the Stars sensation Amy Purdy reveals the story of how losing her legs led her to find a spiritual path. When the Las Vegas native was just nineteen, she contracted bacterial meningitis and was given less than a two percent chance of survival. In a near-death experience, she saw three figures who told her: "You can come with us, or you can stay. No matter what happens in your life, it's all going to make sense in the end." In that moment, Amy chose to live. Her glimpse of the afterlife-coupled with a mysterious premonition she'd had a month before -became the defining experiences that put Amy's life on a new trajectory after her legs had to be amputated. She wouldn't just beat meningitis and walk again; she would go on to create a life filled with bold adventures, big dreams, and boundless vitality-and share that spirit with the world. In 2014, Amy-the only competitor, male or female, with two prosthetic legs-claimed a bronze medal for the U.S. Paralympic team in adaptive snowboarding. She then became a contestant on season eighteen of Dancing With the Stars, and viewers were captivated as the girl with bionic legs managed to out-dance her competitors all the way to the finale. Amy's journey is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the capacity we all have to dream bigger, defy expectations, and rewrite our stories. Amy was given a second chance for a reason-to use her life to inspire others. Her powerful memoir urges us to live life to the fullest, because we are all a lot more capable than we could ever imagine.

Lady Gaga is a once-in-a-decade artist, and the rare instant celebrity whose appearance can become a cultural event. No other music star of the last decade combines the talents Lady Gaga possesses: she’s a genuine singer, composer, songwriter, designer, and performance artist, who uses technology and social media to shape her art and career. In the space of fifteen months, she has become a demographic-smashing pop icon with global reach and impact.
Not since Madonna’s breakout success in the mid-eighties has the world witnessed the advent of a pop-culture provocateur who mixes high-and-low culture, the avant-garde with the accessible, “downtown” authenticity with the sheen of glamorous artifice. She has quickly formed a symbiotic relationship with her rabid fan base who have taken to dressing as she does, imitating her hair and make-up in tribute. Gaga, too, is a cultural shape-shifter, allowing her fans to project their needs, wants, confusions, and desires onto her.
This is a must-read for Gaga fans, who, devoted as they are, know next to nothing about who she is and how she got that way, as well as for anyone who has heard Lady Gaga on television and the radio and is curious about America’s latest over-the-top cultural success story.
