Girls - HBO

By Austen Brooks Let’s talk about sex: in five episodes, we’ve seen three of our four Girls in the act and one get close. Writer/director/star Lena Dunham’s scenes are the most explicit, to the point of discomfort; but then again, so is the rest of the show. Is it Dunham’s goal to suggest that...

Norah Jones - Little Broken Hearts

By Kenneth E. Oquist The title track “Little Broken Hearts” off of Norah Jones’ new release features a shimmering guitar effect. It’s kind of slow, but this does not hurt it, and you just notice it. “Happy Pills” is the single and a good choice, featuring a pop guitar sound. “Out on the Road”...

Meat Loaf - Hell in a Handbasket

As the title suggests, the latest release from Meat Loaf, Hell in a Handbasket, finds the long-time rocker disgruntled — as many of us are at times. Sure it’s a cliche, but it’s not surprising that it is now the title of his new album. I was figuring on the usual fare from Meat...

Toby Keith - Clancy's Tavern

The first single “Made in America” off of Toby Keith’s new release ‘Clancy’s Tavern’ is a pretty good song that has been out awhile.

Song Ideas

Here are some song ideas I feel should be written. “Wardrobe Failure”.  I  am very confident this is self explanatory. I mean let’s get real here. “Your Love Affair is a Train Wreck”. I don’t think this needs too much explaining. “You and Her Are Him and Hurricane”. No chaos or bad feelings are...
