Aronofsky Makes Sequel With Mother!

spoiler alerts. not that it matters. read on: I remember Requiem for a Dream being a real downer which had shocking and degrading scenes because it was real. If Darren Aronofsky had followed that up with another hyper-realistic, life-is-horrible show he would have been the next Harmony Korine.  Instead he made Black Swan and sold out by…

French rap, a hidden gem

While rap music remains an American dominated genre’,  there are other countries and cultures where it thrives. In some cases, it even predates American rap, such as old school French rap. If you, like me, find “The Life of Pablo” pablum, then dust off these gems… MCSolar’s debut album in 1991 continues to influence French…

The rise of Isaiah Small, a local rapper

Describing himself as “music-minded,” Isaiah Small has been musically active since age 3, starting first on the piano, making it an easy choice for his favorite instrument. He also describes the piano as the main structure of everything musical, making it crucial for his music. However, despite his early attraction to music it was not…

The 27 Club

Jim Morrison of the doors, Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix are all legends in the music world, and as legends, they share a lot in common.  Unfortunately, these artists all died at a young age. What age? 27. Although the most notable, they were not the only music artists to die…

2013 Dodge Charger SRT8

What does 707 HP sound like? Hellcat most likely.

Yes, yet another Hellcat post. The Hellcat in fury, in either iteration (Charger or Challenger) is like hearing Wagner in the original Teutonic. Caterwauling and over-the-top. While the Tesla has insane power, what it lacks, and this is important, is sound. The wail of a fueled V8 in full tune cannot be denied, and while…

Hip Hop has a New King

Basketball and Hip-Hop In my mind, hip hop and basketball are inextricably related. While this is not exactly an earth-shattering insight, one makes me constantly think of the other. LeBron James, for example, was recently asked who was the greatest basketball player of all and he answered “myself.” When Michael Jordan was asked the same question he simply…

Breaking-Bad

Unfortunately, there are still some people who have not yet seen this series, and because of this we must forewarn you that this post will…

Grooviest Tuneage Online?

We once wrote a post about a burger joint called MyBurger. In a nutshell we said the concept was cute but the food was crap. This began a long and juicy line of comparo posts. Because comparisons become obsolete fast, we’ll start a new set now. On that note, because hamburgers cannot play musical instruments allow us to…

Musical Road Rage. Solved.

If you are traveling over the Holidays, groovyman offers a way to end arguments between “family DJs” during long drives. Because most people lack the time, talent or inclination to actually master a musical instrument, their “music” is actually a vicarious form of self-expression. So how do you choose music in a way that not only…
