THINGS BOGANS LIKE: TRIBAL TATTS TO REALITY TV. BY E. CHAS MCSWEEN ... [ET AL.], McSween, E. Chas
41 McSween, E. Chas THINGS BOGANS LIKE: TRIBAL TATTS TO REALITY TV. BY E. CHAS MCSWEEN ... [ET AL.]
Hachette Australia 2011 0733626696 / 9780733626692 Paperback Fine 
A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: The word bogan has a bad rap; first impressions are still associated with flannelette, VB, utes and mullets. But this would be wrong. The bogan has advanced and needs new explanation, evolution has cursed (or blessed, depending on your thinking) us with a modern version. The bogan with money. The bogan with aspirations. The bogan with Ed Hardy t-shirts. The new bogan will not rest until it owns a plasma TV so large that Rove McManus becomes six feet tall for the first time.Today s bogan defies income, class, race, creed, gender, religion and logic. Now the bogan is defined by what it does, what it says and, most importantly, what it buys. Those who choose to deny the bogan on the basis of their North Shore home, their stockbroking career or their massive trust fund choose not to see the real bogan. Many bogans are affluent and perhaps are working in that same stockbroking firm and sharing a Corona with you over Friday night drinks. They set themselves apart by their efforts to stand out by conforming as furiously, and conspicuously, as possible.The authors, six self-confessed snobs, have drawn on their friends, family, neighbours, workmates and that guy who always jumps the queue at the bar, to show the evolution of the much-loved Australian bogan, their modern desires, and how we can either join them or mock them. This will be a groundbreaking sociological publication and, far more importantly, the perfect Christmas gift for anyone who has ever bought a Buddhist-themed water feature, Ed Hardy t-shirt or watched Today Tonight.

44 Moon, Susan Ichi Su THE LIFE AND LETTERS OF TOFU ROSHI
Shambhala 1988 0877734615 / 9780877734611 Paperback Near Fine 
This collection of spiritual advice from Tofu Roshi of the No Way Zen Cente r, including a running commentary from narrator and disciple Ichi Su concer ning her complicated relationship with the master (she is not even sure if Tofu is a man or a woman), pokes gentle fun at New Age believers. In his an swers to readers' letters, Tofu gives out free-wheeling counsel that ranges from the practicalfor the concerned parents whose daughter is trying to co nvert their cat to a strict vegetarianto questions of deep philosophical na ture: "Why is there something, rather than nothing?" and "What is the meani ng of life?" Tofu has remedies for everyone in this diverting book, but oft en, "like a basketball that teeters a long moment on the rim, only to fall outside the Hoop of True Understanding," it is difficult to ascertain just what Tofu has prescribed. There is a breath of scandal here, too, because i n the sacred bowels of the No Way Zen Center, Ichi Su and Tofu are discover ed passionately shaving each other's heads. Moon is coauthor of Risking Pea ce.

46 Moore, Michael DOWNSIZE THIS! RANDOM THREATS FROM AN UNARMED AMERICAN
Harper Perennial 1997 0060977337 / 9780060977337 Paperback Very Good 
Americans today are working harder, working longer and yet for most of us, in this time of ruthless downsizing and political cronyism, job security, a decent standard of living and a comfortable retirement are becoming harder and harder to find. In this brilliantly funny and right-on-target diatribe , irreverent everyman Michael Moore gives his own bold views on who's behin d the fading of the American dream. Whether issuing Corporate Crook trading cards, organizing a Rodney King Com memorative Riot, sending a donation to Pat Buchanan from the John Wayne Gac y fan club (which was accepted) or trying to commit former right-wing congr essman Bob Dornan to a mental hospital, the in-your-face host of TV Nation and director/star of Roger & Me combines an expansive wit with biting socia l commentary to make you think and laugh at the same time. In hardcover, Downsize This! stormed the bestseller lists of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle and others. Given Michael Moore's enormous -- and growing -- constituency, this trade paperback edition brings his unique perspective on the nation to an even greater audience.

54 Roy, Hattersley BUSTER'S DIARIES
Little, Brown 1998 0316645923 / 9780316645928 Hardcover Near Fine/Near Fine 
A crisp clean hardcover, no markings throughout, no an ex-lib: 'Un-put-downable, highly amusing...A perfect Christmas present' - DOG WORLD 'A must read for every dog owner' - SUNDAY TRIBUNE Ireland 'When Buster the cross-bred Staffordshire Bull Terrier was attacked by a goose belonging to the Queen, his resulting act of self-defence (from which the bird never recovered) was so widely misreported in the press that Buster became an instant celebrity. One court appearance and a GBP75 fine later, Roy Hattersley and his companion were consigned to the criminal ranks. But that was not the end of the matter, as journalists pursued the pair through the parks of London. Determined to put his side of the story forward, Buster decided at last to put paw to paper and his Diaries, as told to Roy Hattersley are the result. From his lowly beginnings as a street pup and rescue dog, Buster charts his heady rise to the sophistication of SW1. Hotels, living with The Man and mealtimes that She dictates are only a few of the obstacles Buster has to negotiate. But negotiate them he does and despite momentary lapses in his 24-hour memory, the three learn to live together as a family. Light-hearted and humorous in tone, Buster's Diaries was never meant to be a serious treatment of animal psychology; yet it does offer the odd thoughtful comment on a British society which often seems to revolve around dog ownership and the tabloid press. A good wind-down book, this story offers you a leisurely stroll towards the happy ending where Buster finally adjusts to the rigours of owning The Man. It should certainly succeed in its aim to convince everyone th

In the last half of the twentieth century, personal ads exploded in myriad publications from coy gay ads of the 1950s to colorful ads in the alternative presses of the 1970s. Today, more and more people are paying for a chance at love. From the best and the worst, the hopeful and the hopeless, the bitter and the sweet, the romantic and the lustful-never before has a collection like this been assembled from so many decades past.
