There's lots of Cincinnati in music, blues and bluegrass and rock. This was written by a local author, but you can hardly kick a can downtown/OTR/Clifton without some story of (especially) musical excellence in the city. Really. CCM, Music Hall, The May Festival, we do have some musical roots here.

As far as on TV, I think the best you get is WKRP In Cincinnati. I'd argue that that's all we need.

Also, wasn't Harlem Nights (the Eddie Murphy movie) also shot here? There was some random DeNiro film shot here, too, that was a period piece.

I did read some diary of a dentist on Vine (late 19th century) somewhere once that was very interesting & creepy, I'll ask a friend if he remembers it. Lots of flies in that one.

Nothing I can think of on film. When the Museum Center opens up again, they had a neat section devoted to Cincinnati history.

If you come up with something, please share.

  1. Natural Capitalism - Creating the Next Industrial Revolution. Most businesses still operate according to a world view that hasn't changed since the start of the Industrial Revolution. Then, natural resources were abundant and labor was the limiting factor of production. But now, there's a surplus of people, while natural capital natural resources and the ecological systems that provide vital life-support services is scarce and relatively expensive. In this groundbreaking blueprint for a new economy, three leading business visionaries explain how the world is on the verge of a new industrial revolution.

  2. The Information Diet. The modern human animal spends upwards of 11 hours out of every 24 in a state of constant consumption. Not eating, but gorging on information ceaselessly spewed from the screens and speakers we hold dear. We're all battling a storm of distractions, buffeted with notifications and tempted by tasty tidbits of information. And just as too much junk food can lead to obesity, too much junk information can lead to cluelessness.

  3. Republic, Lost. With heartfelt urgency and a keen desire for righting wrongs, Harvard law professor Lawrence Lessig takes a clear-eyed look at how fundamentally good people, with good intentions, have allowed our democracy to be co-opted by outside interests, and how this exploitation has become entrenched in the system. Rejecting simple labels and reductive logic - and instead using examples that resonate as powerfully on the Right as on the Left - Lessig seeks out the root causes of our situation. He plumbs the issues of campaign financing and corporate lobbying, revealing the human faces and follies that have allowed corruption to take such a foothold in our system.

  4. Free: How Today's Smartest Businesses Profit by Giving Something for Nothing. A generational and global shift is at play—those below 30 won't pay for information, knowing it will be available somewhere for free, and in China, piracy accounts for about 95% of music consumption. Anderson provides a thorough overview of the history of pricing and commerce, the mental transaction costs that differentiate zero and any other price into two entirely different markets, the psychology of digital piracy and the open-source war between Microsoft and Linux. Although Chris Anderson puts forward an intriguing argument in this cheerful, optimistic book, many critics remained unconvinced.

>There is such an enormous economic impact to being an NFL city that goes way way beyond whether our team sucks or not.

True, but not in the way you intended.

More often than not, "stadiums and arenas rarely bring about the promised prosperity, and instead leave cities and states mired in debt that they can't pay back before the franchise comes calling for more" according to leading sports economics that study the impact of stadium construction. (Atlantic, 2012)

"NFL stadiums do not generate significant local economic growth, and the incremental tax revenue is not sufficient to cover any significant financial contribution by the city,” said Noll, a senior fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research. He has written articles and books and given talks on the public financing of sports stadiums. (Stanford, 2015)

"Hidden costs may include city or county [...] issuance of tax-free bonds that divert investors’ money away from school, road, and mass-transit infrastructure (Hamilton County, Ohio, issued tax-free bonds to fund the stadium where the Cincinnati Bengals play, and has chronic deficits for school and infrastructure needs as a result)." (Atlantic, 2015)

"In a 2015 study, Ted Gayer and Alex Gold of the Brookings Institution concluded, “Despite the fact that new stadiums are thought to boost local economic growth and job creation, these benefits are often overstated. Academic studies typically find no discernible positive relationship between sports facility construction and economic development. Most evidence suggests sports subsidies cannot be justified on the grounds of local economic development, income growth, or job creation.” " (Atlantic, 2015)

Dough looks a little rough, but not bad for a first time. A book I would suggest finding is https://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Pizza-Favorite-Recipes-Dessert/dp/0809233495/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1504453853&sr=8-5&keywords=pasquale+bruno Its a great beginners book with good recipes to learn the basics of dough making and sauce combinations.

If you are looking for other genre books set in Cincinnati, these are a few I'm familiar with.

Have you read Mosaic 17K? It's a cyberpunk book based in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati. Really captures the area IMO. Good stuff.

Also Queen City Jazz, which doesn't really fit comfortably in a genre. Not really my cup of tea, but might be worth the read. Very surreal. Has kind of a 1970s sci-fi vibe to it.

And the Kim Harrison Hollows novels, which are urban fantasy. IMO, she didn't capture the area at all well. It came across as super generic midwest large city. And she described the town I live in all wrong, not even a little bit right. Possibly the most well known series of books set in the area.

This is a pretty elementary understanding of urban sociolgy. If you're actually interested in the topic, I'd suggest reading up on what some professionals who have spent their lives studying the topic have to say about it. This text is a good start.

u/Hepcat10 · 1 pointr/cincinnati

You should read this book. It will make you a better driver, and make you more accepting to other drivers.

Those people zooming to the head of the line are actually doing it correctly, and (believe it or not) actually helping alleviate traffic.


u/mizary1 · 2 pointsr/cincinnati

There is a radio dramatization of the book out there... it was pretty good.

Curtis Sittenfeld is a native of Cincinnati and set her modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice, Eligible, in Cincinnati. Part of the fun of reading it, for me, was noting all the fun Cinci landmarks, big and small!

u/TheGoshDarnedBatman · 4 pointsr/cincinnati

I hesitate to say you should feel bad per se, but gentrification is becoming a major issue in urban areas. It's nice when upper-middle class white people take it upon themselves to "renovate" areas, but the people who were there need to go somewhere.

If you're still on the "the homeless are only homeless because they are lazy" train, let me suggest Nickel and Dimed. It's a great exploration of poverty in the United States, although it's a bit dated now.

A year ago I posted this thread mining ideas for strange, unknown, "secret" places in and around Cincinnati. Based on your responses (and suggestions from other family members and friends), my mother wrote this book (and my father did all the photography). She went and visited like 80-90 places and this is the result.

EDIT: I got a PM asking for the link to the book. Here it is on Amazon.

Looks like you can also buy it on Joseph Beth's website, and this one does NOT show any sort of shipping delay

Her website
The book's Facebook page

She has some events coming up so you can check those links.

Edit about Amazon
My mom's publisher on Amazon:

>This is Amazon being Amazon. We have no input as to what they show for availability on any of our book product pages. They always order a few copies to start and after a few weeks ramp up more reasonable quantities. The availability should change to "In stock" with a normal statement about delivery time, in a week or so.

I've been reading The Power Broker. It's an interesting look into corruption in government, and public works projects, and it's also very well written. It's a bit long but I'd recommend it.

u/Cincyguy50 · 1 pointr/cincinnati

I have this one - "Cincinnati - A Pictorial History" by Marilyn Green & Michael Bennett https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/0898654777/ref=la_B001KMM0P0_1_1_olp?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1484766334&sr=1-1

It seems to be out of print, but there are used options (for cheap) on the above website. The book is 244 pages, many photos per/page throughout, depicting scenes and history from 1788 to about 1985, with stories and photos. Don't know if you can get it for Saturday, but it's a very nice coffee table sized book either way. Publisher was The Donning Company 1986 - ISBN 0-89865-477-7

[This book] (http://www.amazon.com/Hoops-Nation-Americas-Pickup-Basketball/dp/0803262353) only mentions place in the area - the Oakley Playground in Hyde Park (corner of Paxton and Taylor).

Granted the book is ten years old and traveling basketball players could not possibly hit every court in the area, but thought it was worth a mention.

You won't regret reading The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins.

u/chanceoksaras · 1 pointr/cincinnati

Read his old one, it has gems like women aren't fit for office because the Bible says so.

Not sure about in-person lessons but if you strike out, check out this course. This vocal teacher has taught some top metal vocalists.

u/Handeaux · 1 pointr/cincinnati

If so, I highly recommend the book by Linda Fisher & Carrie Bowers. They did a lot of work sorting myth from fact. If you read anything about the old West, you know there's often more myth than fact.
