Proud to Be an Okie: Cultural Politics, Country Music, and Migration to Southern California

Proud to Be an Okie brings to life the influential country music scene that flourished in and around Los Angeles from the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s to the early 1970s. The first work to fully illuminate the political and cultural aspects of this intriguing story, the book takes us from Woody Guthrie’s radical hillbilly show on Depression-era radio to Merle Haggard’s “Okie from Muskogee” in the late 1960s. It explores how these migrant musicians and their audiences came to gain a sense of identity through music and mass media, to embrace the New Deal, and to celebrate African American and Mexican American musical influences before turning toward a more conservative outlook. What emerges is a clear picture of how important Southern Cal

Dirty South: OutKast, Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy, and the Southern Rappers Who Reinvented Hip-Hop Reviews

Dirty South: OutKast, Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy, and the Southern Rappers Who Reinvented Hip-Hop

Rap music from New York and Los Angeles once ruled the charts, but nowadays the southern sound thoroughly dominates the radio, Billboard, and MTV. Coastal artists like Wu-Tang Clan, Nas, and Ice-T call southern rap “garbage,” but they’re probably just jealous, as artists like Lil Wayne and T.I. still move millions of copies, and OutKast has the bestselling rap album of all time.In Dirty South, author Ben Westhoff investigates the southern rap phenomenon, watching rappers “make it rain” in a Houston strip club and partying with the 2 Live Crew’s Luke Campbell. Westhoff visits the gritty neighborhoods where T.I. and Lil Wayne grew up, kicks it with Big Boi in Atlanta, and speaks with artists like DJ Smurf and Ms. Peachez, dance-cr

Elvis and Gladys (Southern Icons)

Elvis and Gladys (Southern Icons)

Who on the planet doesn’t know that Elvis Presley gave electrifying performances and enthralled millions? Who doesn’t know that he was the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll? But who knows that the King himself lived in the thrall of one dominant person? This was Gladys Smith Presley, his protective, indulgent, beloved mother. Elvis and Gladys, one of the best researched and most acclaimed books on Elvis’s early life, reconstructs the extraordinary role Gladys played in her son’s formative years. Uncovering facts not seen by other biographers, Elvis and Gladys reconstructs for the first time the history of the mother and son’s devoted relationship and reveals new information about Elvis–his Cherokee ancestry, his boyhood obsession with comic books, and

City of Industry: Genealogies of Power in Southern California

City of Industry: Genealogies of Power in Southern California

City of Industry is a stunning exposé on the construction of corporate capitalist spaces. Investigating Industry’s archives, including sealed FBI reports, Valle uncovered a series of scandals from the city’s founder James M. Stafford to present day corporate heir Edward Roski Jr., the nation’s biggest industrial developer. While exposing the corruption and corporate greed spawned from the growth of new technology and engineering, Valle reveals the plight of the property-owning servants, especially Latino working-class communities, who have fallen victim to the effects of this tale of corporate greed.

8/18/2011 — San Diego = strange fume event occuring in southern California

Cross posted from my blog.. download the video directly there, and see the links etc.. : www.dutchsinse.com First a fresh lava field erupts off the coast of Oregon, then mystery plumes erupt from lava fields all the way up the west coast from Pisgah area north to the washington state line… a 6.0 magnitude quake hits Baja California, then a hill side in Santa Barbara (just north of Los Angeles) begins to smoke and steam… now.. due south in San Diego, we hear about the ENTIRE county/city having hundreds of people calling 911 to report the smell of “burning petroleum” . Since the hill side to the north of Los Angeles was reported to be “burning tar” from deep underground.. this leads me to believe we are seeing a very large seismic event take place on the west coast (when you factor in the above events of the past couple months). folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu quake.crowe.co.nz aslwww.cr.usgs.gov www.oe-files.de www.fs.fed.us pasadena.wr.usgs.gov earthquake.usgs.gov aslwww.cr.usgs.gov www.earthquakes.bgs.ac.uk earthquake.usgs.gov aslwww.cr.usgs.gov download.cnet.com www.volcano.si.edu hawaii.wr.usgs.gov cnt.rm.ingv.it www.emsc-csem.org www.emsc-csem.org www.emsc-csem.org earthquakescanada.nrcan.gc.ca www.goandroam.com earthquake.usgs.gov earthquake.usgs.gov www.showme.net www.nps.gov www.pnsn.org
