"A deeply felt and largely compelling portrait of an age that indelibly marked everyone who took part in it. Indispensable for understanding the culture of the '60s and the music that was at its heart." - starred review, "Kirkus Reviews"In 1966, at the ripe age of 22, Richard Goldstein approached "The Village Voice "with a novel idea. "I want to be a rock critic," he said. "What's that?" the editor replied.It was a logical question, since rock criticism didn't yet exist. In the weekly column he would produce for the"Voice, " Goldstein became the first person to write regularly in a major publication about the music that changed our lives. He believed deeply in the power of rock, and, long before it was acceptable, he championed the idea that this music was a serious art form. From his unique position in journalism, he saw the full arc of events that shaped culture and politics in the 1960s--and participated in them, too. He toured with Janis Joplin, spent a day at the Grateful Dead house in San Francisco, and dropped acid with Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys. He was present for Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech, the student uprising at Columbia, and the riots at the 1968 Democratic Convention. He was challenged to a boxing match by Norman Mailer, and took Susan Sontag to her first disco. Goldstein developed close relationships with several rock legends--Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison, to name two--and their early deaths came as a wrenching shock, fueling his disillusionment as he watched the music he loved rapidly evolve from a communal rite to a vast industry--and the sense of hope for radical social upheaval fade away."Another Little Piece of My Heart "is the intimate memoir of the writer as a young man with profound ambition. It is also a sweeping personal account of a decade that no one else could provide--a deeply moving, unparalleled document of rock and revolution in America.

    If you get a free domain name from Squarespace, you actually own it and so you can take it with you even if you decide to leave the platform. You just have to make sure you pay the annual registrar fee so you get to keep the domain name.

    In terms of design, I'd suggest either Squarespace or Wix. Both have really great looking templates to make your site look professional. But in terms of ease of use (which sounds important to you), I'd suggest testing out Weebly. This is not to say that Squarespace or Wix are not easy to use Р they are. But I just find Weebly very intuitive to learn and use. They're all very capable website builders!

      2. Even if you -do- throw money at them advertising exclusively to iOS system users (i.e. via Facebook ads), it's a much lower conversion rate. I usually see the Фecho' on Amazon, not iBooks, even if I ONLY target iOS users and ONLY put in a direct link to iTunes.

    How about setting up a blog to list the academics who publish in such journals?
