[How To] Download from Deezer
Deezer is a site where you can search for english songs, create playlists and listen to them. And now, you can download as well, at least unofficially. This method is for Firefox(1). Here are the steps:
- Install DownloadHelper add-on and restart Firefox.
- Open 'Customize Toolbar' dialog, find the icon for DownloadHelper and drag it onto the toolbar at the top.
- Right click on the icon -> Preferences -> MediaReq tab -> add 'php' as a supported extension. [Thanks John]
- Go to deezer.com, play a song that you want to download, and you should see DownloadHelper's icon being animated (spinning) now.
- Click on the down arrow on the icon (not on the icon itself), then click on cacheDiffusion.php and in the Save file dialog, name it to whatever.mp3.
Note that it is not possible to download more than one song (like all the songs in a playlist) at a time from this site.

Atkinson On Film
I'm Roland Atkinson, a Professor of Psychiatry at the Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. Before coming to Oregon, I trained and worked in West Los Angeles for several years. What a feast for a film nut! Katherine Hepburn sitting down in front of me at a Saturday matinee. Spotting Burt Lancaster or Lee Marvin at the old Bel Air Country Store (gone now, sad to say). At UCLA, taking care of Alfred Hitchcock's wife, Alma, during her annual medical checkup when I was an intern; and hearing Dr. Ralph Greenson discuss his psychiatric treatment of the late Marilyn Monroe.
I see 200 or more feature films a year, counting theater screenings and DVD/VHS. I review films - from a psychiatric and psychological perspective - for several professional publications, including the nationally distributed monthly, Clinical Psychiatry News, published by the Elsevier International Medical News Group. My reviews are enriched in style and substance through conversations with my partner, Jo Ann Weaver, a discerning film observer in her own right and a terrific editor.
I have also advised advanced student and professional scriptwriters on creating authentic portrayals of psychiatric and substance use disorders and their treatment through a pro bono program sponsored by the Entertainment Industries Council. E.I.C. is a non-profit, Hollywood-based organization supported by the commercial film and television industries; its efforts to advocate for authenticity of substance abuse portrayals in films and teleplays have been supported by grants from the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Michael Eric Dyson
Dubbed "the Hip-Hop Intellectual" by critics and fans for his pioneering explorations of rap music in the academy and beyond, Michael Eric Dyson is uniquely situated to probe the most compelling and controversial dimensions of hip-hop culture. Know What I Mean? addresses salient issues within hip hop: the creative expression of degraded youth that has garnered them global exposure; the vexed gender relations that have made rap music a lightning rod for pundits; the commercial explosion that has made an art form a victim of its success; the political elements that have been submerged in the most popular form of hip hop; and the intellectual engagement with some of hip hop's most influential figures.
