Shirley Manson Returns With Hunger

Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson is back lending her soothing vocals to this sort of haunting new single "The Hunger."  I've been missing Shirley, so it's nice to throw her back into my rotation. 

Manson gets together with Serj Tankian of System of a Down, who composed music for the rock musical Prometheus Bound which is currently running at the Oberon in Cambridge, Mass.  Take a listen.

Just Can't Get Enough: Drugs. Hookers. Tweets. Winning.

 What we've learned:  Drugs are bad, but winning feels so good.


1. Successful; victorious.
2. Attractive; charming: a winning personality; a winning smile.
3. Charlie Sheen.

Winning Quotes:

On being high:  "I probably took more than anybody could survive. ... I was bangin' seven-gram rocks and finishing them because that's how I roll, because I have one speed, one gear. ... I'm different. I have a different constitution, I have a different brain, I have a different heart. I got tiger blood, man. Dying's for fools, dying's for amateurs."

On being high: “I am on a drug. It's called Charlie Sheen. It's not available, because if you try it once, you will die and your children will weep over your exploded body. Too much?.”

On Sobriety: " Look at me! Duh!"

On Porn Stars:  "They're the best at what they do and I'm the best at what I do. And together it's like, it's on. Sorry, Middle America. Yeah, I said it. "

On partying: "I mean, what's not to love? Especially when you see how I party man, it's epic. The run I was on made Sinatra, Flynn, Jagger, Richards, all of them, just look like droopy-eyed, armless children."

On partying with him:  "I've exposed people to magic. You’ve been given magic. You’ve been given gold."

 On Himself: "I’ve got tiger blood and Adonis DNA."

Bottom Line:  "Winning."

Why the World Needs Vicki Leekx

Yes, I am JUST getting to this mixtape despite it's New Year's Eve release.  If you are not familiar with M.I.A.'s highly energetic persona, and some might say politically chaotic views, where have you been?  She's sheer madness, a genius!  If you listen up, you'll find this mix crossing into her usual ways.... a fresh, dizzying electro party!  Be invigorated!

MCR: Not So Goth Anymore

My Chemical Romance is back with new stuff, but it's not what we're used to hearing.  Gone is that sad, gloomy goth that resonated through frontman Gerald's anguised body.  Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys the new album is fiery red hot just like Gerald's new hair.  It's synthrock at it's finest.  

Key tracks:  Bulletproof Heart and S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W (listen here)

Bear Down: Good Jay or Bad Jay?

Jay Cutler, the Chicago Bears "franchise" quarterback...... not this wrestler, GROSS

is so hard to figure out, why waste our time.  

Cutler has had his share of ups -n-downs last season and this.  He's got a bad reputation, he pouts, he throws interceptions, spends alot of time on his back (not entirely his fault), BUT also has a gun for an arm, can scramble a bit, plays with diabetes  (that's toughness), and he DOES smile occasionally showing us that he maybe does care just a little bit.  Does the bad outweigh the good? Or vice versa?

Entering his first playoff game, it's any given Sunday, which means we might just see any given Jay out there. 

Happy Jay

Sack Back Jay

Intercept Jay

We might even see all three Jays? 
 We just don't want to see this Jay....
Bedtime Bear

My prediction:   He will be solid, because he doesn't give a damn about his bad reputation!

Black Swan Review

"If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self." - Napoleon Hill

Dark & Powerful is the only way I can describe this psychological thriller.  Natalie Portman has always been one of my favorite actresses and she doesn't disappoint! Like a G6, she blew up in this role.  Mila Kunis, also a fav, was delightfully twisted as well.  The movie struck a cord, mainly because of the emphasis on control.  I, myself, have always struggled with much so, I even had the damn word inked on my neck as  reminder to "let go" and "live a little." This was a reminder again that you can be on the highest possible stage but the secret of success is learning how to use pain instead of it using you.  On that note, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this masterpiece.
