Just When You Thought Taylor Swift Was Finished Remaking “All Too Well,” Here’s The “Sad Girl Autumn” Version

In the nine years since Taylor Swift released Red, “All Too Well” has become one of her best-loved songs despite never being released as a single. So when she re-recorded the album this year, she naturally made “All Too Well” a big focus of the project. Specifically, she released the long-rumored 10-minute version of the song, giving it a music video and performing it on SNL. And now, in the wake of “All Too Well” and “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)” and “All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylo...

Aesop Rock Is Unstuck In Time

Aesop Rock first rapped over a Blockhead beat 24 years ago. At least, that was the first time that Aesop Rock rapped over a Blockhead beat on record. The Long Island rapper and the Manhattan beatmaker had become friends a few years earlier at Boston University. By the time Aesop self-released his 1997 debut album Music For Earthworms, Blockhead had already dropped out of college, though Aesop was still there. (He’d graduate a year later.) When Aesop made Music For Earthworms, he hadn’t yet becom...

NY Lawmakers Introduce Bill Limiting Use Of Rap Lyrics As Criminal Evidence

Two New York state senators are introducing legislation this week to limit the admissibility of rap lyrics as evidence in criminal trials. Rolling Stone reports that the proposed “Rap Music On Trial” bill from Brad Hoylman (D-Manhattan) and Jamaal Bailey (D-The Bronx) will set a new high bar compelling prosecutors to show “clear and convincing evidence” that a defendant’s rap song, video, or other “creative expression” is “literal, rather than figurative or fictional.”

Essen und Sex sind definitiv zwei absolute Highlights im Leben. Und weil das gemeinsame Abendessen ja ohnehin schon ein fester Bestandteil des Datings ist, ist es auch gar nicht so weit hergeholt, das Essen in dein Sexleben zu integrieren, um frischen Wind ins Bett zu bringen.  Fetische im Zusammenhang mit Essen – wie zum Beispiel das sogenannte Sploshing (bei dem lustvoll auf Essen gesessen wird) – sind sicherlich Geschmackssache, aber die Verbindung zwischen Sex und Essen an sich ergibt total...
