Normally I avoid political commentary on my blog… but this just cracked me up! Run, sweetheart, run! http://www.redlasso.com/ClipPlayer.aspx?id=566f38d3-f06d-4291-a36c-1dbfbcd96acb
Ruttt roooo. Madonna‘s new album Hard Candy has hit the Internets and is available from all the usual suspects. I’m not telling ya’ how to get it. You know where she is. Go find her! She’s sticky and sweet. Full review coming next Tuesday!
OH…MY…GOD…NEW…MADONNA! VIDEO!!! She’s baaaaaaaaaaK! HOT HOT HOT. Feverish. Enjoy! Black smoke monster giving chase included.
Well done Madge!
Alright, I’m kinda biased to Miz Jackson. However her last album was a stinker. A few hot tracks but nothing to write home about. Well it’s 2008. Strap grandma down. It’s Janet’s latest — Discipline. Woah! It’s definately the soundtrack to the summer. Or my sex life. One of the two. Here are my favorite tracks.
- “Feedback” - The first single… hot hot hot, new sounds for Janet.
- “LUV” - Great beat, screams Pharrell.
- “Rock with U” - MY FAV!! OMG. Ohhh ohh. Strobe lights make everything sexy. Kylie Minogue eat your heart out. This will make you dance!
- “2nite” - Powerful, can the radio handle it? Probably not. Love the highs. Although a little cluttered, still good.
- “Greatest X” - 90′s throwback, tear factor
- “Good Morning Janet” - OK, OK it’s an interlude track but it’s techofun
- “Play Selection” - Stop it! Another interlude. Who’s she talking to??
- “The 1″ - Missy Elliot and punchy beats and layering, damn!
- “Curtains” - Soulful, slow and powerful
So bottom line. Listen to “Rock With You” and shake your butt. Janet’s back.
As a Hitchcock
fan nut I must say these are very well put together. Look it’s Jodie Foster in the Birds! Jodie Foster!!
Psycho, Vertigo, North by Northwest (my all time favorite Hitchcock movie) and the like at the link…

It’s about time someone figured out how to build a vehicle powered by Pink Floyd and smoke machines. Now if only we could get Trent Reznor involved…
MTV, in a three part series, has outlined 2007 and the things that will lead to the eventual death of the record industry as we know it. Highlights include Madonna, Trent Reznor and Radiohead. Parts two and three show us how artists make money in other ways and the future of music distribution.
On the evening of the Wild West Film Fest I present a spooky delight to put fright in your night. Happy Halloween!
“Said to be the first fully interactive bar in the world, 24 will feature computer controlled projections that can transform images and video on a blank canvas wall with the click of a switch. There will also be hundreds of LED lights installed that will give the venue over 1,000 different color combinations. ”
