The Unstoppable Power of Rihanna

in Entertainment/Uncategorized by

 

It seems like April is the month of Rihanna! Here’s a brief rundown of what RiRi has been up to this month!

Work has been at no.1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 for nine weeks, thus  putting her past  the Beatles for most weeks spent at number one! She’s also at third most ever singles that got to spot number one!

 

She’s also killing it in the makeup world. Last week, Ri signed a 10 million dollar deal with LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton’s imageKendo division for her own makeup line called “Fenty Beauty by Rihanna.” Don’t get too crazy- the line is out in Fall 2017.  Rihanna also coached a gay fan come out to his family last week, and also was in Tribeca’s opening night doc The First Monday and by all reports stole the show. Go Rihanna go!

 

 

 

 

 

Check out Grey 8’s!

in Uncategorized by

Grey 8’s are  a Miami garage rock band, and bring with them not only the hazy Miami sunshine but all the Miami noir. They sound alternatively menacing and like you’re soaking up the sun on South Beach.  It’s cheerful ear candy for the cynical.  The band consists of  Danny Burns (Guitar/vocals), Dres David (Drums), László Piringer (Bass) and they cite their influence from the Delta’s Bukka White to Iggy Pop.  It’s easy to on paper write off the Grey 8’s as another SoFlo indie band but the Grey 8’s are distinctly different due to László’s Hungarian born sensibilities and the warbly, ominous vibes.  They’ve also played and collabrated with rap groups. Catch them playing in Orlando sometime, or give them a listen when you’re in the mood to wear all black while walking on the beach.

Bogota Music Market 2015: 5 Colombian Artists You Need to Know

in Uncategorized by

A mix of hardcore salsa, funk, hip-hop, reggae and ska, this nine-person troupe from the barrios of Cali (Colombia’s salsa capital) is hard-hitting, tight and electrifying live.

They doubtless were Thark warriors who had been sent out to capture us, and we breathed a great sigh of relief that they were traveling in the opposite direction. Quickly lifting Dejah Thoris from the thoat, I commanded the animal to lie down and we three did the same, presenting as small an object as possible for fear of attracting the attention of the warriors toward us.

We could see them as they filed out of the pass, just for an instant, before they were lost to view behind a friendly ridge; to us a most providential ridge; since, had they been in view for any great length of time, they scarcely could have failed to discover us. As what proved to be the last warrior came into view from the pass, he halted and, to our consternation, threw his small but powerful fieldglass to his eye and scanned the sea bottom in all directions.

As a first listen to the record, Zane Lowe debuted lead single “Giant Peach” as his “Hottest Record in the World” earlier this week. Chugging along on murky guitars, the track highlights the band’s gritty rock aesthetic alongside singer Ellie Rowsell’s vocal range. She hits the high yelps, the hushed poetics, and even the guttural growls. A “love affair” with the city of London, Rowsell says, “It’s a song to dance to, but also a song to lose your shit to.” Take a listen:

Evidently he was a chieftain, for in certain marching formations among the green men a chieftain brings up the extreme rear of the column. As his glass swung toward us our hearts stopped in our breasts, and I could feel the cold sweat start from every pore in my body.

We are committed to remaining by his side as a family for our champion.
We are committed to remaining by his side as a family for our champion.

And then the moonlight flooded the cave, and there before me lay my own body as it had been lying all these hours, with the eyes staring toward the open ledge and the hands resting limply upon the ground. I looked first at my lifeless clay there upon the floor of the cave and then down at myself in utter bewilderment; for there I lay clothed, and yet here I stood but naked as at the minute of my birth.

The transition had been so sudden and so unexpected that it left me for a moment forgetful of aught else than my strange metamorphosis. My first thought was, is this then death! Have I indeed passed over forever into that other life! But I could not well believe this, as I could feel my heart pounding against my ribs from the exertion of my efforts to release myself from the anaesthesis which had held me. My breath was coming in quick, short gasps, cold sweat stood out from every pore of my body, and the ancient experiment of pinching revealed the fact that I was anything other than a wraith.

Again was I suddenly recalled to my immediate surroundings by a repetition of the weird moan from the depths of the cave. Naked and unarmed as I was, I had no desire to face the unseen thing which menaced me.

My revolvers were strapped to my lifeless body which, for some unfathomable reason, I could not bring myself to touch. My carbine was in its boot, strapped to my saddle, and as my horse had wandered off I was left without means of defense.

 

Unable longer to resist the temptation to escape

This horrible place I leaped quickly

The crisp, fresh mountain air outside the cave acted as an immediate tonic and I felt new life and new courage coursing through me. Pausing upon the brink of the ledge I upbraided myself for what now seemed to me wholly unwarranted apprehension. I reasoned with myself that I had lain helpless for many hours within the cave, yet nothing had molested me, and my better judgment, when permitted the direction of clear and logical reasoning, convinced me that the noises I had heard must have resulted from purely natural and harmless causes; probably the conformation of the cave was such that a slight breeze had caused the sounds I heard.

I decided to investigate, but first I lifted my head to fill my lungs with the pure, invigorating night air of the mountains. As I did so I saw stretching far below me the beautiful vista of rocky gorge, and level, cacti-studded flat, wrought by the moonlight into a miracle of soft splendor and wondrous enchantment.

Few western wonders are more inspiring than the beauties of an Arizona moonlit landscape; the silvered mountains in the distance, the strange lights and shadows upon hog back and arroyo, and the grotesque details of the stiff, yet beautiful cacti form a picture at once enchanting and inspiring; as though one were catching for the first time a glimpse of some dead and forgotten world, so different is it from the aspect of any other spot upon our earth.

Unable longer to resist the temptation to escape this horrible place I leaped quickly through the opening into the starlight of a clear Arizona night. The crisp, fresh mountain air outside the cave acted as an immediate tonic and I felt new life and new courage coursing through me.

As I stood thus meditating, I turned my gaze from the landscape to the heavens where the myriad stars formed a gorgeous and fitting canopy for the wonders of the earthly scene. My attention was quickly riveted by a large red star close to the distant horizon. As I gazed upon it I felt a spell of overpowering fascination—it was Mars, the god of war, and for me, the fighting man, it had always held the power of irresistible enchantment. As I gazed at it on that far-gone night it seemed to call across the unthinkable void, to lure me to it, to draw me as the lodestone attracts a particle of iron.

Ready to Say Bye to Fashion Police?

in Fashion/Uncategorized by

What will E! do now that Kathy Griffin has followed along with Kelly Osbourne and has officially said BUH-BYE to “Fashion Police.” There is some say that the network might just pull the plug on the entire show. After only airing seven episodes, Griffin tweeted her resignation this past Thursday and followed up with saying the reason for her departure is because the show was “too mean spirited.” We’re all up for dropping anything that you don’t stand for. But with only Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski as the remaining hosts, the couches are looking a little too empty to continue anything without quick replacements. And to be completely honest, our mind still hasn’t wrapped around the fact that there’s no more Osbourne after her sudden resignation a couple of weeks ago.

It seems like E! has mucho work to do to determine whether it’s actually worth it to find two new compatible hosts to finish off the season. But this might be the sign that they needed to officially close the curtains on the show that holds the last memories of the beloved, late Joan Rivers.
