The Little Book Of Growing Up

Journalist, blogger and TV host La Carmina has been documenting alternative culture for years, and her new book, The Little Book of Satanism: A Guide to Satanic History, Culture, and Wisdom, aims to shine a light on a widely misunderstood phenomenon.

The book explores the different depictions and perceptions of Satan throughout history, leading to the Satanic Panic of the eighties and even today, contrasting with the outspoken progressive activism of the Satanic Temple.

The research process involved getting a number of dense academic sources, including books published about Satanism by the Oxford University Press. To distill all that into an accessible format for the general public was the biggest challenge.

But I was dying to get to Korea. I had become deeply interested in the culture and wanted to learn the language. Despite the fact that my parents had both been raised in Seoul, I had never visited growing up and felt I had a lot to catch up on. I was fresh out of college and depressed over the prospect of spending the rest of my 20s in the same state I had lived all my life. With no responsibilities tying me down in California and up for a new adventure, I jumped at the chance to go to Korea. Within a few hours, I had my fingers crossed and a flight booked to Houston.

On Halloween night, dusk hushed the little orange-grove-turned-subdivision street we lived on, and then, as porch lights and jack-o-lanterns glimmered one by one, costumed children ventured down walkways and onto sidewalks. The entire neighborhood transformed for two hours. It was magical.

Purpose Senior Designer Kim Caicedo, with the help of editor and friend Shannon Jordy, recently launched a successful Kickstarter campaign for The Little Book of Disorders, an 80-page softcover book on mental health. Written as a simple guidebook for anyone interested in learning about Mental Health, The Little Book of Disorders highlights eight of the most common mental disorders. It offers support and advice for parents, children, friends and family of individuals struggling with mental health. Full of original illustrations and typography, each section of the book is paired with pop culture references like Lord of The Rings and Batman to make this topic fun and easy to understand for all audiences.

Through the funds raised on Kickstarter, 100 books will be printed and donated to schools and other public institutions. Additionally, an event featuring artists and creatives will be held to raise awareness around mental health and the stigma surrounding it.

On the stairwell, he passed a maid in a white and black uniform. Wheeler saluted her and flashed a confident greeting; then as soon as she disappeared around a corner he picked up a bundle of soiled bed linen and carried it up the stairway. He explored until he found his way to the fourth floor stairwell within eyeshot of room 433 and watched through a crack in the heavy door until the little man with the dolly and trunk arrived.

Wheeler Burden was a new man. He gave little thought to his old twentieth-century clothing, which he had left like so much shed snake's skin in a pile beside the steamer trunk in the American's hotel room. He felt such immeasurable relief at being comfortably clothed and in cash, with no one staring, that, for the moment at least, he was able to disregard the fact that he was friendless, still without passport or any means of identifying himself, and that on this, his first day in 1897 Vienna, he had acquired a mortal enemy.

This one afternoon, he was giving her, as was the custom on those walks, a detail-rich and seamless version of the latest chapters of Ninety-Three, the Victor Hugo novel he was reading, or rereading. For young Stan Burden, his mother always conjectured, talking was discovery, so she would just let him ramble as she lost herself in figures from the recent prune harvest. She knew he was eccentric, flamboyant even, and she liked that. His free flow of ideas kept her good company, and she figured the outpouring was good for releasing all the pent-up male energy of growing up without a father.

Wheeler's mother had a well-earned reputation as a no-nonsense pacifist. Five years earlier, in 1946, her husband already dead in the war, she had made the unlikely move with her five-year-old son from their bombed-out London neighborhood to the small family farm in far-off California. Wheeler's father's family, the Boston Burdens, had given it to Wheeler's mother outright. It was a way to buy her off, to get her out of the way, a recompense for what she had been through, and a place to raise the family's only grandson, the last of the Burden line. Wheeler's mother, ravaged by war herself, had been glad to leave the gloom of her own and her country's loss, and the Boston Burdens had been glad to have her out of sight. The family, at least Wheeler's grandfather, had never accepted Flora. Regardless of how desperately she had loved his son and how she had left England to search for him almost as soon as the Allies landed in Normandy, it was clear to Flora that to the old patriarch Frank Burden she was little more than that English Jewess his son had gotten pregnant.

To call this a blend, however, is a bit of a disservice. Under the law a whiskey can be labeled a blend when it contains as little as 51 percent whiskey. A blended Bourbon, for instance, could be made from just over half straight Bourbon with the rest being unaged neutral spirits (think of grain alcohol). It also could be flavored or colored, a no-no for straight Bourbon.

When Zack Bush was growing up he spent his free time listening to jazz. Instead of imagining a career in law or medicine like so many of his classmates, the Miami native knew he would take a different path. Zack learned to play the piano and would speak with family and friends about one day owning a venue that would bring the music he loved to others. Zack is now the co-owner of Ball & Chain, a historic live-music venue on Miami's famed Calle Ocho, in the heart of Little Havana. Zack and his partners renovated and restored the nearly forgotten gem, famous for hosting 20th-century jazz greats like Chet Baker, Count Basie, and Billie Holiday. Today, musicians from around the world perform live on the Ball & Chain stage. In addition to Ball & Chain, Zack co-owns several other historic restaurants and bars.
