Nachtclubs und Diskotheken sind Epizentren der Popkultur. Seit Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts versammeln sich hier Avantgarden, die gesellschaftliche Normen infrage stellen und andere Ebenen der Wirklichkeit erkunden. Viele Clubs werden so zu Gesamtkunstwerken, bei denen sich Innenarchitektur und Möbeldesign, Druckgrafik und Kunst, Licht und Musik, Mode und Performance auf einzigartige Weise verbinden.Mit dem Buch Night Fever. Design und Clubkultur 1960 - heute erscheint erstmals ein umfassender Überblick zur Architektur- und Designgeschichte des Nachtclubs. Die Beispiele reichen von italienischen Clubs der 1960er Jahre, die von Vertretern des Radical Design geschaffen wurden, bis zum legendären New Yorker Studio 54, in dem Andy Warhol Stammgast war, vom Palladium in New York, das von Arata Isozaki entworfen wurde, bis zu neuen Konzepten des Architekturbüros OMA für den Nachtclub Ministry of Sound in London.Reich illustriert mit Abbildungen von Clubinterieurs, Plakaten, Flyern, Protagonisten des Nachtlebens und deren Mode begleitet Night Fever die Leser auf einer faszinierenden Reise durch Subkulturen und Glitzerwelten - auf der Suche nach der Nacht, die kein Ende nimmt.
Romance, intrigue, jewels, gold-laden tombs, ancient curses, Egyptian princesses, a dysfunctional British family, a heroic archaeologist, a conniving thief, a wicked and vengeful heir to a 4,000-year-old line of Egyptian kings all come together on the Nile in 1900s Cairo in a tale only L. Frank Baum - creator of the Oz stories - could tell with his adventure-tipped and action-filled pen. And no finer adventure and action-packed tale came from Baum's quill than The Last Egyptian: A Romance of the Nile. With her dying breath, Hatatcha, an Egyptian princess and grandmother to Kara - the last in the bloodline of Egypt's Ahtka Ra, the man behind the power of Rameses II - extracts from her grandson a promise to fulfill her desire for revenge on a British Lord who promised her marriage in London years earlier but cast her out - pregnant and ashamed - to return penniless to her meager hut in Abu Fedah along the banks of the Nile. In Hatatcha's final instructions, Kara discovers wealth beyond his imaginings in Ahtka Ra's treasure-filled tomb, and begins his rise from the desert's dust to the richest clubs and apartments in all of Cairo. And as he climbs the stairs to fame as Prince Kara, he plots his grandmother's revenge on the family that threw Hatatcha away, pregnant though she was with Kara's mother. As Kara rises to the pinnacle of Cario's society, he is accompanied by Tadros, a two-faced, ever-greedy accomplice, known as a dragoman, whose only desire is to line his pockets with Kara's gold, find Ahtka Ra's tomb, and play any game necessary to accomplish his goal. The path toward that goal runs right though the Consinor family - Lord Roane and his son, Viscount Roger Consinor, and Roger's young daughter, Aneth. It is the Consinors whom Kara seeks to ruin, even to the point of deceiving innocent Aneth. From the gaming tables of one of Cairo's most private clubs to the Ministry of Finance, to a blackmail-threatened marriage, Kara lays the groundwor 1. Language: English. Narrator: C. James Moore.

As Christian women, there is probably nothing more heartbreaking than seeing our children turn from God. We spend thousands of dollars, and sacrifice countless hours to VBS, Bible clubs, youth outings, church camp, and children's parties every year. We build elaborate stage sets, plan fantastic carnivals, and youth extravaganzas and bus in all the children and teens we can find in the hopes of leading them to Christ; and yet we are still losing them We see the grown-up children, the grown-up fruits of our outreaches, living as practical atheists. They walk and talk and act like the world, even loving the world, and though they claim to be saved, evidence of life in Christ is conspicuously absent. Even our own children are abandoning the faith. They have asked Jesus into their hearts and yet we see them turn from God at staggering rates. Statistics show that no less than half have turned from God by high school age and closer to two thirds by the time they finish college. What we're doing is just not working! In Why Are We Losing the Kids? you'll see where we have gone wrong and where to go from here. We can turn the tide on our failing ministry efforts! We can share the gospel without creating false converts or backsliders! We can keep the kids if we'll follow God's plan! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Diane Busch.

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 interview 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tiffanie Darke.
