Fumbling Towards Ecstasy

By JW Norton, published on Dec 27, 2006

I arrive late. No matter, things are already well under way on the dance floor. I stand off to the side, waiting to feel moved by the music. I warm up slowly. My body shifts and turns. I observe the sea of faces before me, some familiar. I am greeted by a mixture of smiles, looks of ecstasy, detachment, joy, kindness, even pain. I move faster: skipping, dancing, twirling, gyrating. The beat changes from a snappy latin number to a rap version of “Santa Baby.” I realize a broad smile has taken over my face. Here at Jo Cobbett’s “Fumbling Towards Ecstasy,” there are no wrong moves. People... (more)

No More Music From Paris Hilton

By Matt Hilton, published on Dec 26, 2006

British Media reports have stated that Paris Hilton's music career is over. Hilton, 25, released her debut album earlier this year. Although it was loved by many, it didn't do well on the charts. A source commented, "You don't need to worry about listening to any more music from Paris - there won't be any. Her career as a singer is going to be allowed to quietly go away." (more)

You are My Sunshine...

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Dec 22, 2006

...we receive through our retinas are more powerful than a plate full of noodles (yes, those bad carbs do have a good side affect after all). However, things like bright colors and light bulbs do hold influence. If you're feeling down during the winter, switch on some light and turn on some music in your home. Filling your surroundings with movement, life, and overall good vibes prevents you from falling into a blues funk. Even something as simple as downing some bright colors can stop the pity party. Vogue's November issue highlighted some of the new trends in "Resort Wear" in a ... (more)

Nothin' Wrong with a Little Imperfection

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Dec 21, 2006

...money that the thing that makes Dani-clones so appealing may have a bit to do with something every man or woman could use a heaping dose of: self-love. Spending the next fifteen years of my life party hopping, drinking, flirting sounds like a blast when it's neatly summed up in a three minute music video, but reality is that, for this Dish, it's a bit extreme. Not to mention, horribly exhausting. Maybe I'm maturing. Maybe I'm finally letting that little shy voice inside have a turn. Maybe I'm (gasp?!) starting to like me. Whatever the turn of events going on inside my pattering... (more)

George Clinton, Funk Star Extraordinaire Robbed

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Dec 20, 2006

...are those among us who will still go to great lengths to take video camera equipment from a 65 year-old man. Especially if that senior is George Clinton, funk star extraordinaire of the band George Clinton & Parliament/Funkadelic. The theft occurred during the shooting of Clinton's upcoming music video, "Bounce 2 This". The stolen video camera is said to have contained footage from the not-yet-released video. Although surveillance cameras managed to catch the thief on film, publicist Sandy Friedman said in a statement Tuesday the individual was unrecognizable amongst others gathered at... (more)

God Gave Rock n Roll to Him

By V, published on Dec 19, 2006

...on the Gulf of Mexico in the Yucatan. The room is comfortably full. The stage, with its red velvet drapes is tucked into one corner and, although theatrical, once you've set an upright piano and a drum kit upon it, it is tiny. An enthusiastic audience waits expectantly as one by one the musicians squish into their allocated spots. Matt, tall, strong and unassuming in his usual, relaxed uniform of button-down shirt, jeans and Australian-made boots, squats to wrestle with leads. Branden Harper on drums (who also co-produced the album) is completely obscured by a combination of his... (more)

Still a Little Bit of Your Song in My Ear

By Stephanie Michele, published on Dec 18, 2006

...top five concert-going experiences. If the opportunity comes your way, I highly recommend checking out Damien Rice and his band in person not just for his amazing integrity in his craft but for the chance to find some peace in whatever makes you sad. I have to admit my love for Damien’s music may be intensified by the manner and timing of which it was introduced to me. Every time I hear his voice or Lisa’s, (female vocalist in his band) I feel something, my heart drifts back in time where pieces of it still remain. Even though most will say his music is incredibly depressing, ... (more)

Viral Music Marketing Internet Success

By Jaci Rae, published on Dec 8, 2006

Being signed by a major label is not the prize card it used to be for many struggling musicians and indie artists. It's no longer the Yellow Brick Road that leads to the Land of Oz where your dreams come true so to speak. Conventional radio airplay, standard brick and mortar distribution and being signed by a major record label are no longer the only means of getting your music noticed. Because of the massive appeal of digital distribution and the easy and fast access to the Internet available now to most people, unknown musical talent now has a real chance at real success. Additionally... (more)

The Lion King at the Pantages in Hollywood

By Noa, published on Dec 6, 2006

Last night I went to see Broadway's award-winning best musical The Lion King, which is playing at the Pantages Theater on Hollywood and Vine until January 7th. This is the fourth musical I have been to but I must say it is by far the best. The most impressive things about it are the costumes and props. The creativity involved in making the animals come alive on stage was unbelievable! Far from the classic personification of animals in Cats, where actors simply wear little ears and makeup, the Lion King has revolutionized the creation of animal characters. The production uses many different... (more)
