Tournament of Tease & a Giant Dildo

•April 3, 2009 • Leave a Comment

I could not belive my eyes when a lively burlesque dancer came on stage with the biggest black dildo I have ever seen! This performance was part of Whoopee Club’s Tournament of Tease which took place at Bethnal Green’s Working Men’s Club.

Walking in to the delightfully delapitated room, I was pleased to find a diverse crowd of young, middle aged and one old man – probably a regular who has been coming for the past 20 years.

Back to the dancer with the dildo: The story goes how she is trying to find true love but keeps getting her hopes dashed…that is, until ‘Chuck’ comes along. Yes, it was shocking to see the little red bow tie around ‘his neck’ and even more surprising to see the dancer starting to get off on it, whilst wearing dildo nippletassles.

Yet there was something completely acceptable about this spectacle. I don’t really know why or how but anyone who is brave enough to date a giant dildo on stage is good enough in books. The onlookers laughed and cheered and I couldn’t think of a better way to end a hectic Thursday.

YouTube pulls music videos in Germany

•April 1, 2009 • Leave a Comment

Posted on Music Week 12:15 | Wednesday April 1, 2009

YouTube has started blocking music video content in Germany, after falling out with collecting society GEMA.

The video sharing site’s decision mirrors its decision last month to stop blocking premium music video content in the UK, after failing to agree royalty rates with PRS For Music.

YouTube’s agreement with GEMA apparently ran out last Thursday and the two sides have been unable to agree a new deal, with YouTube EMEA director of video partnerships Patrick Walker telling Der Spiegel that GEMA’s rates are 50 times higher than those demanded by PRS.

GEMA disagrees, however, claiming that YouTube has not given it the transparency it wanted.

AMY’S NEW SONGS NOT UP TO SCRATCH

•March 24, 2009 • Leave a Comment

(From CMU Daily 24 March 09)

Now, I should start by saying that this story is based on quotes from an unnamed source who spoke to The Sun, but reportedly Island Records aren’t happy with songs Amy Winehouse wrote in St Lucia for her third album. Apparently the heavily reggae-influenced songs feature some pretty dark lyrics and the label feel that the change of musical direction coupled with a bombardment of lyrical misery might be too much for the singer’s fans. Although, given that the music on her last album, ‘Back To Black’, featured a new musical style and some fairly dark lyrics, I’m not sure how likely this is to be true. The source does reckon these lyrics are particularly dark, though

But anyway, the source told The Sun: “Amy was very productive during her stay in St Lucia. She wrote a hell of a lot of songs, but the majority of them just aren’t hitting the mark. She seems to have ditched her trademark vintage soul sound and is now heavily influenced by reggae. Her bosses don’t think it’s a wise move to change her style so sharply and have told her that”.

On the subject of the lyrics, they added: “The lyrics are very dark indeed. While she’s known for her confessional style and has been very successful with it, many of the tracks are near the knuckle. Everyone understands that Amy is an artist and she must be true to her instincts. In the past, she’s written frequently about broken hearts and boyfriends, but this time round she’s delving into harrowing terrain”.
