Highbeams: Keep Meaning It

Highbeams: Keep Meaning It

“Either Way” gets going in a way very few here do, snapping along, truly Americana poppy and just this side of almost too noisy in the production…its wonderful cacophony. And “Window, f. Jenny and Sky,” the song that ends the album, is a back and forth acoustic dripping sorry-for-myself tune. Again the harmonies are just too perfect really and we go out nice and soft with Jenny and Sky lending their female vocal harmonies into the mix to end Keep Meaning It truly like the Highbeams mean to…perfectly.

Early on in the film when Cooper’s character, “Jackson Maine” first meet Lady Gaga’s “Ally,” she sings the classic “La Vie en rose,” in a drag club, that’s included here…showing off Gaga’s strong voice. “Maybe It’s Time,” written by four-time Grammy Award winner, singer-songwriter of The 400 Unit, and former member of Drive-By Truckers, Jason Isbell, is performed by Cooper in that same club setting, just him singing with an acoustic guitar.

Cher: Dancing Queen

Cher: Dancing Queen

There is no denying that these ABBA tunes are great. Better pop tunes might not have ever been written actually. And having an icon of Cher’s status wailing round these, even with the over use of Auto-Tune, makes Dancing Queen a fun listen. The lady isn’t breaking any new ground with these versions, but it’s Cher-does ABBA, what more do you need?

Lenny Kravitz: Raise Vibration

Lenny Kravitz: Raise Vibration

On his 11th studio album, Raise Vibration we once again Lenny Kravitz smashing through with positive messages and defiant stance in heavy rock and roll funk tunes. Opening with the trash-beat, sing-able chorus of funky rocker “We Can Get it Together” into a decidedly 70’s funk groove of “Low,” mostly with Kravitz singing over a drum backing on the verses, we get into the groove early here.

THE SEX FILES: Get ‘It’ Reading Books

THE SEX FILES: Get ‘It’ Reading Books

You know how fond I am of erotica in print and picture form. These days when we can all too easily roll over Clips4Sale or YouPorn to catch a snippet and get done what needs to get done, it’s nice to take some time pouring over printed images and text. Be they in magazines or books, pictures of stories, even some non fiction, there is something ‘old school’ naughty about turning pages that’s so fun. It slows down the masturbation time, for one thing, having to lift at least one of your hands to turn a page, and if you haven’t flipped through the book before taking your slower gander, with each page comes a surprise.

Bouncing Firm Bottoms, Bared Pecks And Bulges: The Sex Files Visits NYC Comic Con

Bouncing Firm Bottoms, Bared Pecks And Bulges: The Sex Files Visits NYC Comic Con

I happen to think it is very cool when young women and even men (although I don’t level that much consideration on young men, seeing that I’m a hetero guy) bare their bodies in superhero outfits, and cosplay costumes. Down at the sprawling geek-fest that happened at our own Javitz Center the weekend of Oct.4th-7th, all manner of comely, firm and beautifully bouncing body part was revealed in latex, Lycra, leather and it was a display that warmed my heart,

The League of One: Dispatch

The League of One: Dispatch

A “911, what’s your emergency?” questions opens The League of One’s latest, Dispatch. Here we get the trio of Will Maeder, singing and playing guitar, The “Rev” on bass and lending his backing vocals and Billy Grant manning the drums, hitting straight and true the trio certainly influenced by lots of great heavy rockers gone before them.
