  While responding to accusations that she’s a tyrant lying about the dangers of COVID, Renae Moch, public health director in North Dakota, asked a pertinent question: “Why would I want to do that?” This, to me, is the strangest thing about the resistance to common sense that is now making a bad situation much worse. It’s stranger than the argument about freedom, which lacks the self-awareness to notice its own compliance, evident in the belief that a retweeted meme counts as independent t...

Force 5 Records – “The Ruckus Mixtape, Vol. 2” (Mixtape Review)

Force 5 Records is a Milwaukee based hip hop record label founded in 2002 by The DRP. However, it wasn’t until 2017 after returning from a 3-4 year hiatus where the label became the powerhouse that it is today by bringing a handful of big underground names on board from Bay Area horrorcore veteran Mars to the late Saint Dog of Kottonmouth Kings fame. They put out a showcase mixtape that same year called The Ruckus Mixtape but as Force 5’s roster continues to grow over time, it’s only right for ...

La Scala Cancels Staged Opening Night, Will Do Gala Instead

Of Long-Gone Jazz Clubs And Race

Oral histories suggest that jazz musicians have related to each other with more ease than can be found in other parts of the culture. At the same time, there’s no doubt that venues in general were hostile to racial mixing. So the degree to which jazz — the music and the business — contributed to a progressive model of race relations is an open question, one that generates many different opinions. – ArtsFuse

Taylor Swift: The Long Pond Studio Sessions review – cosy campfire confessions

The pop star’s Disney+ movie about quarantine album Folklore reveals the potency of her songwriting, though it’s hazy on any ‘pandemic epiphanies’Pre-pandemic, few artists were so keenly attuned to the music industry’s calendar as Taylor Swift. She timed her album releases for awards contention and singles to sustain her world tours; the promotional cycle for 1989, released in 2014, seemed to go on for years. With coronavirus, that “circus” – as she puts it on Mirrorball, one of a few songs on h...

Stevie Ray Vaughan Gives a Blistering Demonstration of His Guitar Technique What made Stevie Ray Vaughan such a great guitarist? If you ask Metallica’s Kirk Hammett, a devoted student of the blues, it’s “his timing, his tone, his feel, his vibrato, his phrasing–everything. Some people are just born to play guitar, and Stevie was definitely one of them.” This may come as disappointing news to guitar players who want to sound like SRV but weren’t born with his genes. Hammett assures them it’s possible to approximate his ...

listening to joni: #16: taming the tiger

Taming the Tiger, 1998Taming the Tiger is markedly different than Joni's previous album, Turbulent Indigo. Where Turbulent Indigo is dark, intense, and enigmatic, and the lyrics largely topical, this one has a light, lyrical feel, the music shimmering and weightless, the lyrics more personal. Many critics regard it as Joni's best "latter day" album, perhaps because it's more accessible. I wouldn't go that far -- Turbulent Indigo and Night Ride Home are both better, in my view -- but Taming the...

Frank Zappa’s unreleased archive revealed in Alex Winter’s years-in-the-making documentary

When Alex Winter approached the widow of rock musician and composer Frank Zappa with his pitch to make a documentary on the man and his music, he was thrilled when Gail Zappa said yes. What her agreement meant, though, was an entirely different kind of delight and dilemma. “I didn’t realize that I was going to be getting access to the entire vault,” says Winter, who in addition to directing films is, of course, an actor most famous as Bill S. Preston, Esquire from the “Bill & Ted” comedy trilogy...

9 neue Parfums für gemütliche Winterabende zu Hause

Sagen wir’s, wie es ist – dieses Jahr war merkwürdig. Doch hat es uns eine wichtige Lektion gelehrt: Es kann nie schaden, genau zu wissen, womit du deine Stimmung in Sekundenschnelle ein wenig anheben kannst. Vielleicht hilft es dir dann, deine Lieblingsserie anzumachen oder ein heißes Bad einzulassen. Aber ist dir auch schon mal aufgefallen, dass vor allem Düfte echte emotionale Superkräfte entfalten können?  Der Geruch von Plätzchen im Ofen, Kerzen, Glühwein – nichts sagt deinem Hirn so deutli...

Fernbeziehung: 11 süße Weihnachtsgeschenke für dein*e Partner*in

Fernbeziehungen sind nicht leicht – vor allem nicht zurzeit und nicht zur Weihnachtszeit. Am liebsten würdet ihr jeden Winterabend gemeinsam eingekuschelt vor dem Fernseher verbringen und euch einen romantischen Weihnachtsfilm nach dem anderen anschauen. Aber leider bleibt euch aufgrund der Distanz nur der süße Gute-Nacht-Anruf vor dem Schlafengehen – mehr Nähe ist da einfach nicht drin. Deshalb ist das beste Geschenk, das du deinem Partner oder deiner Partnerin an Heiligabend machen kannst, wa...
