This book is a clever satire with a serious social message: How poorly we treat each other in society and how this poor behavior weakens us personally and as a nation. The book critiques a wide array of everyday social behaviors and offers solutions on how to correct our uncivilized behavior. Dr. Mayer proposes a new social disorder (illness) he calls, Center Of the World Syndrome. Those who suffer from this he labels as COWS. He terms the solutions offered as: Tipping the Cows. John Mayer on: The Universal sign of friendship: Does this really mean anything anymore? When someone flips you off, do we really care? Tipping the Cow:…Blow fellow motorists a “kiss” when they salute you with that harmless finger…try it…you’ll get a bigger reaction. Conversation: Do ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ just not exist anymore? I don’t know where they went, but, poof! they disappeared right out of the English language. if you want to visit them they reside in dictionaries like sitting in a museum. Tipping the Cow: We have to stop responding to people who don’t request things from us in a civil manner. Parenting:… parents (who) place their needs and expectations before the children’s. They are Cow parents. why don’t children do things the way we want them to do them? Because they are children!… they are not finished products by definition. Mental Health Professionals: The Mental Health Field is a big, ripe grazing pasture for Cows. Parenting: it is absolutely uncivilized behavior of a society to allow such large numbers of youth to use drugs… How do we not allow our kids to drink and drug? we talk to them, we control them, model for them, mentor them and we punish (Ooops! not supposed to say that word, punish, now-a-days.) them for unacceptable behavior…talk to your kids…don’t let drugs be an unmentionable secret around the house--we need to let them know what dire consequences we will inflict upon them if they use drugs or drink.

Definitions of modernism have been debated throughout the twentieth century. But both during the height of the modernist era and since, little to no consideration has been given to the work of minority writers as part of this movement. Considering works by writers ranging from B.A. Botkin, T.S. Eliot, Waldo Frank, and Jean Toomer to Pedro Pietri and Allen Ginsberg, these essays examine the disputed relationships between modernity, modernism, and American cultural diversity. In so doing, the collection as a whole adds an important new dimension to our understanding of twentieth-century literature.

From the co-writer of the record-breaking BBC3 sitcom, Bad Education. 'Doctor, doctor, what do you call a book about comedy that tries to be funny, argumentative, wide-ranging, silly, weirdly personal and fairly well-researched?' 'Doomed to failure.' Bullets are violent. Jokes are violent. Can either be used for good? What is 'good'? A Good Bullet will make next to no effort to answer the last question because it's too hard. But it will have a crack at asking why and how jokes commit violence. Why and how they amuse us with things that otherwise cause us anxiety and pain. Why and how sex, war, history, death, insecurity, hatred and loss - all the good stuff - make people laugh. Illustrations by Jack Whitehall.

Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, and Andy Warhol all wrote fiction ? but there has never previously been a compilation of the prose of British artists. The Alpine Fantasy of Victor B and Other Stories brings together seventeen of Britain?s leading contemporary artists in one collection. Moving, humorous and sometimes deeply macabre, these stories deal with dementia, mortality, mass murder and madness. A young woman derails a Virgin train, killing twenty people, as an experiment in conquering death; a boy fakes an accident to get the attention of the girl of his dreams; an alpine hiker advocates murder as an environmental clean-up solution; and time goes backwards as we witness the ?unlynching? of a paedophile by the local neighbourhood watch. Challenging and expanding notions of art and what artists do, The Alpine Fantasy of Victor B and Other Stories is a haunting exploration of the impulses that drive today?s artists.
