Just off the set with Digable Planets and Ro James, among others at the Wolf Creek Amphitheater, for ATL’s Funk Fest, Erykah Badu is bringing the heat to the Lakefront Arena in New Orleans this Memorial Day weekend on the 28th.
Rest In Power Brother Prince Rogers Nelson… On April 21st last year when Prince passed away, the loss was felt around the world for days afterwards, as exemplified by these photos below:
Some Must See’s for me this year ranging from horror, to reality to fantasy, I’m just dropping trailers of those that apply…
Any given car owner that’s ever paid attention to law enforcement practices, knows that there’s a spike in tickets issued by police, during holiday season. This is a nationwide practice. Any precinct across these 50 states would deny it, but practically any given person’s 3 to 6 degrees of separation of knowing a cop, confirms it.
My initial idea for this piece was to describe those in its title. I became part of a stream that featured them instead, enabling us to read their thoughts, as they scribed their ideas and beliefs themselves. From a friend’s Facebook page who realized she’s going to have to re-evaluate some friends…
The city of Boston should be thanking their lucky stars for the wholesome home-style delicious culinary goodness of Flour. I don’t usually write blogs about food, this will be my third, because I think it’s warranted. The tale of good food MUST be shared.
Bruno Mars is without question a Funk-A-Teer! He recently wrecked stages at the Grammy and iHeart awards, kicking off an International tour later this month, this weekend he does two nights in Vegas. I’ve been feeling Mars’ music since his collaboration w/ B.o.B. on “They’ve Got Nothing on You.” Now he’s a worldwide sensation.
The handwritings been on the wall for some time now. Once the advent of legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes came into existence, the evolution of decriminalization and recreational use, was on its way – now it’s arrived.
“Jitney” is a triumph for the great playwright August Wilson, director Ruben Santiago-Hudson, the cast and Broadway! It opened this past Thursday and features a brilliant ensemble cast.
Blink-182, Gallant, Lukas Graham, Mike Posner, PartyNextDoor and SOJA are all among the Grammy Award nominees for 2017. Recently I did an article on the fact that Blink has never won a Grammy. The veterans in music among those mentioned, it’s their first time among Grammy nominees, I’m hoping their CD “California” is their “Golden Ticket” for Best Rock Album. http://museumofuncutfunk.com/2016/10/03/didnt-blink-182-win-a-grammy-a-musical-yorn/
Did you know pharmaceutical ads are illegal in other countries? Before the Affordable Care Act aka “ObamaCare,” health insurance was unattainable to millions in the U.S., but has been free in every other country for years. Commercials about drugs and new pills; the substitution of NARCAN as opposed to a junkie weening off heroin and the constant bombardment of remedies for erectile disfunction is out of control.
So I have either heard these albums in their entirety and listened to them incessantly; heard one or a few tracks; heard of or know of the artist; LOVE the artist, or got a recommendation to listen to the album, from a fellow music enthusiast. Steeped in FUNK, Blues, Jazz, Gospel, Rock, Pop and Hip-Hop, this is Thee (in no particular order) FUNKALICIOUS List of Music for 2016 – ENJOY!!!
I don’t believe the The Recording Academy will deny selecting Halsey or Lukas Graham for Best New Artist at next year’s Grammy Awards.
Although Adele is primarily noted for her voice, it’s all about the lyrics and music, that make a song. As popular as she is today, my love for her has grown, since she initially took the world stage. Dreezy has taken the world of music by storm and has been hailed as the “Princess of Chicago Rap.” Her album “No Hard Feelings” dropped this past summer, and she’s also featured on Aluna George’s track “Mean What I Mean,” from his latest, “I Remember.”
They actually haven’t. A band that’s been around since 1995, they’ve performed at the ceremony, presented there, even announced Tom DeLonge returning to the band there.
I find I have to search for new music every year. Apart from those that are promoted heavily, generally consumers are left in the dark, unless they go surfing online or hear about something by word of mouth. Last year one of my favorites, that seems like it will never stop getting exposure, is the song “Rise Up” by Andra Day.
Apparently it’s a delusional fabricated term to give a solicitor a license to keep calling at hours you asked them NOT to call. At least that’s been my recent experience with Sirius/XM Radio. Seriously Sirius – I won’t be blasting “Yacht Rock” or “BackSpin” any longer.
Morgan Freeman stars in a remake of “Ben-Hur.” It hit theaters last week and delivers the story in half the time of the original that starred Charlton Heston. Freeman takes on the role of “Ilderim,” a character that wasn’t in the original version, although I imagine there was one that was equivalent to it.
Above all, I’m grateful for my blessings, I can truly say that. This coward that took the lives of so many innocent people in Orlando should not be called a terrorist. It was a horrific occurrence, and while I do consider acts of violence terrorist acts, this weakling for lack of better description isn’t worthy.
Living 57 years is great, but if he were still here, he’d be 58. The ‘Controversy’ concerning his estate is a disgrace. People with a ‘Dirty Mind’, making claims to what he created, ‘Must Be Something in the Water They Drink.’
