              Travis Barker's soul-baring memoir chronicles the highlights and lowlights of the renowned drummer's art and his life, including the harrowing plane crash that nearly killed him and his traumatic road to recovery--a fascinating never-before-told-in-full story of personal reinvent...ion grounded in musical salvation and fatherhood.After breaking out as the acclaimed drummer of the multiplatinum punk band Blink-182, everything changed for Travis Barker. But the dark side of rock stardom took its toll: his marriage, chronicled for an MTV reality show, fell apart. Constant touring concealed a serious drug addiction. A reckoning did not truly come until he was forced to face mortality: His life nearly ended in a horrifying plane crash, and then his close friend, collaborator, and fellow crash survivor DJ AM died of an overdose.In this blunt, driving memoir, Barker ruminates on rock stardom, fatherhood, death, loss, and redemption, sharing stories shaped by decades' worth of hard-earned insights. His pulsating memoir is as energetic as his acclaimed beats. It brings to a close the first chapters of a well-lived life, inspiring readers to follow the rhythms of their own hearts and find meaning in their lives.

              The game of Exquisite Corpse is simple- two or more people create an unpredictable artwork by folding the paper to hide each contribution, leaving only small connective lines for clues. The unfolded page reveals a finished collaboration-sometimes wacky, sometimes twisted, and alw...ays unique. With this book, you can create your own Exquisite Corpses, with friends or on your own, because the pages are already packed with potential collaborators. Here are dozens of remarkable cartoonists, illustrators, animators, and tattoo artists waiting for you to complete their drawings. You might find yourself creating art with a renowned fabric designer (Wesley Mancini), a Pulitzer-winning TV critic (Emily Nussbaum), the Tony-winning costume designer for Hamilton (Paul Tazewell)-or one of your favorite musicians (Grace Slick, Moby, Robby Krieger of the Doors, Chris Frantz of Talking Heads). Other pages invite you to test your wordsmithing skills, using a single sentence to launch a story. You'll spin tales with bestselling authors Chuck Klosterman and Aimee Bender; rock stars Rivers Cuomo (Weezer) and Gavin Rossdale (Bush); TV writer and producer Jane Espenson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer); and legendary actor Stephen Fry, to name a few. Andre Breton and his fellow surrealists developed this imagination-bending technique more than a century ago, and it's still a hit at parties today. The works of art you create with The Beautiful Book of Exquisite Corpses will shock and delight you-all resulting from a long-distance partnership like nothing you've experienced before.

              In this highly entertaining snapshot of a wild-frontier moment in pop culture (Rolling Stone), discover the wild and explosive true story of the early years of MTV directly from the original VJs. Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter, and Martha Quinn (along with the late J. ...J. Jackson) had front-row seats to a cultural revolution--and the hijinks of pop music icons like Adam Ant, Cyndi Lauper, Madonna, and Duran Duran--as the first VJs on the fledgling network MTV. From partying with David Lee Roth to flying on Bob Dylan's private jet, they were on a breakneck journey through a music revolution. Boing beyond the compelling behind the scenes tales of this unforgettable era, VJ is also a coming-of-age story about the 1980s, its excesses, controversies, and everything in between. At last--the real inside story of the MTV explosion that rocked the world, in all its giddy excess, from the video pioneers who saw all the hair, drugs and guitars up close. VJ is the wild, hilarious, addictive tale of how one crazy moment changed pop culture forever (Rob Sheffield, New York Times bestselling author).
