Music Box: Out Of The Frying Pan, Into The ARCADE FIRE

***** They remain one of the few hipster "cult" bands who deserve the (sorta) mainstream success that they've (sorta) acquired. But how "cult" is a band, really, when your last two CDs lived at the upper realms of Billboard's Top 200 album charts? Their 2007 release, NEON BIBLE, debuted and peaked at #2 - and … Continue reading Music Box: Out Of The Frying Pan, Into The ARCADE FIRE

Imma Let You Finish, But Kanye West Has Some Of The Most Random Tweets Of All Time…Of ALL TIME

I can't imagine any one of his 400,000+ Twitter followers (including yours truly) not having a chuckle or two (or twenty) at his oddball stream-of-consciousness (and, natch, pompous) tweets, - which are more akin to Tracy Morgan's 30 ROCK Tracy Jordan persona than he'd probably ever like to admit - but suppose Kanye West's twitter … Continue reading Imma Let You Finish, But Kanye West Has Some Of The Most Random Tweets Of All Time…Of ALL TIME

Dear God, Are You There? It’s Me, Jeffrey. Hello? Knock Knock!

Years ago, after the heinous Dr. Laura Schlessinger spewed her typical anti-gay rhetoric on the masses via her call-in radio show, an online “Dear Dr. Laura” letter was written inquiring about other biblical no-no's. The “Dr. Laura” was changed to “Dear President Bush” when George Jr. used gay marriage as a platform to rile the … Continue reading Dear God, Are You There? It’s Me, Jeffrey. Hello? Knock Knock!

Music Box: All You Single Ladies…Don’t Bother

  Despite lyrics that sing, "There's a she-wolf in your closet, open up and let her free...let it out so it can breathe..."  there's nothing closeted here.  What makes Andrew Foster's proudly gay, almost frame-for-frame cover of Shakira's totally stupid "She-Wolf" video so refreshing is that, where Shakira took her unintentionally hilarious choreography way too … Continue reading Music Box: All You Single Ladies…Don’t Bother
