Dark Days by D. Randall Blythe Pdf

Lamb of god vocalist D. Randall Blythe finally tells the whole incredible story of his arrest, incarceration, trial, and acquittal for manslaughter in the Czech Republic over the tragic and accidental death of a concertgoer in this riveting, gripping, biting, bold, and brave memoir. On June 27, 2012, the long-running, hard-touring, and world-renowned metal band lamb of god landed in Prague for their first concert there in two years. Vocalist D. Randall "Randy" Blythe was looking forward to a few hours off--a rare break from the touring grind--in which to explore the elegant, old city. However, a surreal scenario worthy of Kafka began to play out at the airport as Blythe was detained, arrested for manslaughter, and taken to PankráPrison--a notorious 123-year-old institution where the Nazis' torture units had set up camp during the German occupation of then-Czechoslovakia, and where today hundreds of prisoners are housed, awaiting trial and serving sentences in claustrophobic, sweltering, nightmare-inducing conditions. Two years prior, a 19-year-old fan died of injuries suffered at a lamb of god show in Prague, allegedly after being pushed off stage by Blythe, who had no vivid recollection of the incident. Stage-crashing and -diving being not uncommon occurrences, as any veteran of hard rock, metal, and punk shows knows, the concert that could have left him imprisoned for years was but a vague blur in Blythe's memory, just one of the hundreds of shows his band had performed over their decades-long career. At the time of his arrest Blythe had been sober for nearly two years, having finally gained the upper hand over the alcoholism that nearly killed him. But here he faced a new kind of challenge: jailed in a foreign land and facing a prison sentence of up to ten years. Worst of all, a young man was dead, and Blythe was devastated for him and his family, even as the reality of his own situation began to close in behind PankráPrison's glowering walls of crumbling concrete and razor wire. What transpired during Blythe's incarceration, trial, and eventual acquittal is a rock 'n' roll road story unlike any other, one that runs the gamut from tragedy to despair to hope and finally to redemption. While never losing sight of the sad gravity of his situation, Blythe relates the tale of his ordeal with one eye fixed firmly on the absurd (and at times bizarrely hilarious) circumstances he encountered along the way. Blythe is a natural storyteller and his voice drips with cutting humor, endearing empathy, and soulful insight. Much more than a tour diary or a prison memoir, Dark Days is D. Randall Blythe's own story about what went down--before, during, and after--told only as he can.

Dark Days by Kerry Pither Pdf

" That's what happened to four Canadian Muslim men accused of terrorist links. One of them, Maher Arar has been fully exonerated by a public commission of inquiry. Now Dark Days chronicles the shocking story of how three other Canadian men experienced similarly devastating ordeals. One of these men, Ahmad El Maati, says that despite everything that's happened, "I always remember that we are the lucky ones. Since 9/11 so many others have just disappeared, or are still in secret prisons, with no right to ask questions. At least we have the right to ask questions about why this happened. At least we might get answers.""--pub. desc.

Dark Days by Kate Ormand Pdf

The future world has been divided into sectors—each the same as the other. Surrounded by thick steel fences, there is no way in and no way out. Yet a cyborg army penetrates each sector, picking off its citizens one by one, until no one is left. Behind the sectors’ thick walls, the citizens wait to die. Few will be chosen to survive what’s coming; the rest will be left behind to suffer. A new world has been created and its rulers are incredibly selective on who will become a citizen. They want only those with important roles in society to help create a more perfect future. Sixteen-year-old Sia lives in one of the sectors as part of a family that is far too ordinary to be picked to live. According to the digital clock that towers high above her sector, she has only fifteen days to live. Sia’s seen the reports and knows a horrific death is in store for her, but she is determined to make the most of her final days. Sia refuses to mourn her short life, instead promising herself that she’ll stay strong, despite being suffocated by her depressed mother and her frightened best friend. Just when Sia feels more alone than ever, she meets Mace, a mysterious boy. There is something that draws Sia to him, despite his dangerousness, and together, they join a group of rebels and embark on an epic journey to destroy the new world and its machines, and to put an end to the slaughter of innocent people. Aimed at 13- to 17-year-old readers, both boys and girls, Dark Days has subtle themes of environmentalism, government corruption, and teamwork. In the similar vein of The Hunger Games series, the gravity of Sia's situation with only fifteen days to live, will help bring some common teenage issues—friendship, self-esteem, budding romance—to the forefront. Sia is a strong female character who becomes a true leader, a good roll model for teenagers.

Dark Days by Roger Reeves Pdf

A crucial book that calls for community, solidarity, and joy, even in—especially in—these dark days In his debut work of nonfiction, award-winning poet Roger Reeves finds new meaning in silence, protest, fugitivity, freedom, and ecstasy. Braiding memoir, theory, and criticism, Reeves juxtaposes the images of an opera singer breaking the state-mandated silence curfew by singing out into the streets of Santiago, Chile, and a father teaching his daughter to laugh out loud at the planes dropping bombs on them in Aleppo, Syria. He describes the history of the hush harbor—places where enslaved people could steal away to find silence and court ecstasy, to the side of their impossible conditions. In other essays, Reeves highlights a chapter in Toni Morrison’s Beloved to locate common purpose between Black and Indigenous peoples; he visits the realities of enslaved people on McLeod Plantation, where some of the descendants of those formerly enslaved lived into the 1990s; and he explores his own family history, his learning to read closely through the Pentecostal church tradition, and his passing on of reading as a pleasure, freedom, and solace to his daughter, who is frightened the police will gun them down. Together, these groundbreaking essays build a profound vision for how to see and experience the world in our present moment, and how to strive toward an alternative existence in intentional community underground. “The peace we fight and search for,” Reeves writes, “begins and ends with being still.”

38 Dark Days by Melchizedek Maquiso Pdf

Set on the country’s few month’s old “revolutionary government “, and amidst the euphoria over the victory of the 1986 People Power Revolution, 38 Dark Days is a microcosmic picture of repudiating the much touted ideals that the latter fought for by the action of the former. This novel is a day to day account of the struggles of an academic community that filed a peaceful protest against the surreptitious appointment of somebody to replace the current president. It mirrors the pain, frustrations, and growing hopelessness amid a reticent determination to fight and bring their pleas to the powers that be, locally and nationally. The pervading plea was simply to insulate the academe from political interference so that excellence rather than mediocrity become the norm to inspire them, uphold integrity rather than opportunism, and strengthen institutional structures to withstand political meddling, among others. The roles played in the protest by the local and national politicians, educational leaders, local media (print and broadcast), the military (local and regional), the court of justice , and the local community contribute significantly to paint a gripping view of the crisis that develops. These and their ramifications rock the state college in Metro Ciudad showing a vivid interplay of societal forces and its consequences. The 38th day is not the end all, though. In effect, the events like the search for a new college president to follow days after, turn out to be lengthened shadows of the agony and the painful compromise that had marked the past days. Has the ethos of opportunism, incompetence, and indifference prevailed? Light moments were skillfully interwoven in the story. These serve as catharsis and energizer to keep aflame the hope despite the adversities, while injecting lessons on crisis management on the personal, social, or institutional level. xxx

The Dark Days by Joseph Njoroge Wanjohi Pdf

In Central Kenya there was a village called Kiria-ini. The inhabitants were all faithful to the customs of the tribe. Everyone was faithful to his station in life as decreed by the customary laws. The villagers were a happy, pleasure-seeking people, content with this way of life. That is, until a brutal tribal war brought disintegration, new values, or no values at all. As such, the terrible, dark day followed. In this stirring new book Joseph Njoroge Wanjohi presents an unforgettable story based on his personal experiences growing up in Kenya and watching inter-tribal war destroy all that he cherished.

Love the Dark Days by MATHUR Pdf

Set in India, England, Trinidad and St Lucia, Love the Dark Days follows the story of a girl, Dolly, born of mixed Hindu-Muslim parentage in post-independence India. When she lives with her grandmother, member of an elite Muslim family, whose history is one of having colluded with the brutality of the British rule in India, Dolly unconsciously imbibes her grandmother's prejudices of class and race. As the dark child in her family, this makes her feel that she does not belong, leading to an over-anxiety to please the adults around her. That feeling of unbelonging is repeated when her family migrates to multicultural Trinidad, made up of people from many continents, where she encounters Indian people, several generations away from India, who have a very different sense of themselves, who appear contemptuous of what they see as her airs and graces. She begins writing about her experiences as a way of trying to make sense of them. In her darkest hour, she meets Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott, who encourages her, when she visits him in St Lucia over a weekend, to leave the past behind and reinvent herself.
