Get the Word 'No You Can't' Out of Your Way and Climb Higher in Your Success!

By Jaci Rae, published on Dec 1, 2006

...you can do it! "No" seems to have a million different feelings attached to it, depending on how ‘no’ is interpreted. It also depends on the person’s perceptions when he or she hears the word. Sometimes it can stop you in your tracks especially when it pertains to your music, which is part of who you are. No seems to mean or be interpreted as: 1. They don't like what I have to say or sell. 2. They don't like me. 3. What's wrong with me? 4. What did I do differently than the other person who got the yes? 6. I must not be as talented or knowledgeable as... (more)

The Superficial Male: Bionic Biceps Meet Personified Pectorals

By maceo manhattan, published on Nov 21, 2006

...years of introspection and thought to understand why I killed myself to get the results I got. Finally I realized that my insecurities about life were really getting to me. Through talking to a therapist and consulting my family, I began to rebuild my body. This time from the inside out. Music became my x-factor and allowed me to dig deeper and find my spiritual. Today I continue to go to the gym with the vigor I once had when I was 16. Working out now is about having fun and getting results. My biceps, pectorals, my behind, and my body are forever indebted to my soul and its quest ... (more)

God, Chalk Hill and a Theatre in the Round

By Steven Lane, published on Nov 18, 2006

... then we would turn around start peddling up that hill again. Even today, I can still feel that sweat and the heat. Right at the top of the peak, about 200 yards off the street, was a real honest to goodness roadhouse. Big old dirt parking lot with motorcycles and hot rods parked outside. Country music and rock and roll filtered out to the front where me and my friends would sit and watch for the fights that were sure to come. It would have been around 1955 and I would have been about 8 years old. Right next to the roadhouse there was a dirt road that went up the side of an adjacent hill. It... (more)

Plenty to Do, See on Third Street

By Josh Marks, published on Nov 16, 2006

...of a revitalization project which should integrate the shopping center more into the Promenade and offer more retail and dining choices. With the gentrification efforts came chain stores such as Urban Outfitters, Barnes & Noble, Gap, an Apple computer store and the original Starbucks Hear Music Coffeehouse. Some residents are concerned independent businesses are being pushed out by the chains, but for now there is still a good mix of local and national stores and restaurants. There is a popular farmers market every Wednesday and Saturday along Arizona Ave. Broadway Deli (1457 Third... (more)

A Place Called the Bla-Bla Café

By Jaci Rae, published on Nov 15, 2006

...to do anymore, the title fascinated me. A Place Called the Bla-Bla Café sounded like a mystery thriller that had the essence of old time Hollywood intrigue. Once I was given a brief outline of what was inside the book, I was captivated and I knew I had to review this book. Being in the music industry myself, I was ashamed to say I had never heard of The Bla-Bla Café so I set to learn about it by reading this book. I can say this with certainty that once you pick up this book, you won't want to set it down, as I couldn't. Outlining not just the names and history of superstars ... (more)

Coming Zune!

By Ariel, published on Nov 12, 2006

...the end of this year 2006 is definitely high-tech. It took Microsoft 5 years to react to the Apple's iPod, but the wait is now over: the Zune is here. The highly anticipated MP3 player will offer a 30GB hard drive, WiFi connectivity, and a very large 3.0" screen to watch movies, TV shows or music videos. The Zune will also feature an FM tuner, something missing from all the iPods. The device itself is slightly larger and bulkier than an iPod video and will therefore not be suitable for joggers who will most likely stick with their iPod nanos. Microsoft designed the Zune on the... (more)

Motley Who?

By Glenn T, published on Nov 10, 2006

...and I have to say that it was one of the best concert experiences of my life. That being said, Motley Crue was largely a disappointment, or perhaps my expectations were too high, while Aerosmith looked and sounded as though they were just rounding into their prime (with two substitute musicians and lead singer who is about to turn SIXTY!). I was looking forward to the show as a child of the early nineties; Class of '92 to be precise. Motley Crue was a secret, guilty pleasure of mine. My parents, along with countless others, were convinced that Motley Crue was "devil-worship... (more)

The End of the Record Shop?

By Alethea, published on Nov 6, 2006

...I bought several CDs and left, not sure if I was ready for one of the last records store chains to close, but not sure if I was going to miss it either. What did Tower in? Some could say it’s the super cheap priced mega-stores that carry everything, from furniture to clothes to music. They don’t offer much in terms of variety but you can find mainstream CDs at super cheap imported prices. Others may say it was the age of the internet. There’s no room for record stores when there’s Ipods, MP3 players, internet radio stations, burning, ripping and... (more)

"Wow Wow Wee Wa, It's Nice"

By Charles Harmison, published on Nov 6, 2006

...for the fist time I have ever seen, cannot maintain a straight face underneath that massive . . . well I won't give it away. The only other weak point of this movie was its soundtrack, which seemed, at times, almost attached at the last minute as if as an after thought. The Kazakhstani music was much better than the American songs and it was unfortunately extremely limited. This was surprising since the music in Ali G was one of its strongest features. I will say in comparison to Ali G, as a movie script, this is a much stronger film. It is clear that Cohen either has... (more)
