Erykah Badu’s Entrancing Tiny Desk Concert Series!!!

Thee inimitable and truly uncomparable  R&B queen goddess Erykah Badu has always unleashed musique on her own waves throughout her illustrious 25-year career. Whenever she feels like it, she does it. A mantra that lives within the light of all authentic like artists. There is no light switch when it comes to honest creativity.

Although Erykah hasn’t felt like releasing any nuevo musique as of late since her crazy sexy cool stellar 2015 mixtape "But You Can't Use My Phone." But alas we don't need any new musique from Badu in order for her to partake in  a new web series of "Tiny Desk Concerts." The video recording is used for artists who usually are looking to hype up new musique. But again when you're an artist like Erykah, you do what you do when you feel like doing it. So she just felt like doing one. So she did.

Badu’s Tiny Desk Concert included oldies but goodies all across the board. Plushly she opened with the soulful “Rimshot,” from her classic first record Baduizm. And then she worked out a pensive yet beautiful version of “Green Eyes,” from her follow-up, 2000’s Mama’s Gun. There's a bunch of lovely delovely jazz instrumentation hyped up behind her adding only brownie points to thee whole arrangement.

Something you should make a point to do at some point in your life gals and gents is watch a sunset standing over a Malibu cliff or catching a live performance of Erykah Badu.  Dig out all the soulful yumminess right below!

Nicopop Bubble Pop Electric Track "'Elephant'

A young pop George Michael during his years in WHAM! or a modern-day cutie patootie Nick Jonas and his "Elevator", are often missed in today's pop-friendly radio mix. A male presence in the pop scene is sure lacking but one must not forget pop art culture influences are all around us at a constant.

Drawing inspiration from the visuals and stimulations of the early 2000s, an era we've been waiting for pop culture to start awareness of and bring reverence to such a specific, era-defining time in music culture.

The time for bubbly pop electric sunkist jams with fun hooks and melody comes served by an artist that goes by the name of Nicopop! An electronic artist, animator, and producer. He is basically the answer to a specific nostalgic decade of pop culture obsession. Including the birthing and revolutionary internet consumption and manifestation by the innovators that would later eventually propel what we see now and call as pop commercial social media.

Nicopop goes back to the days when Paris Hilton ruled the Hyde club streets on Sunset and Lindsay Lohan was Hollywoodland's IT actress. When Britney Spears decided to shave her head because after all, she's Britney bitch. Christina Aguilera released her iconic "Stripped" album.  And of course, there was the celebrity excess, superstar magnificence, reality television birthing, telephone dependency, curation addiction, and pendejas (look it up ya'll) being born.

Nicopop carves out a unique space in the electronic pop world, bringing back to life a classic sound with an upbeat new twist. The 2000's inspired tune is entitled “Elephant.” The track features thick pop beats, stellar finger-snaps, and video game-style samples. Remember when N'Sync, to Blackstreet featuring Janet, Samantha Mumba, Brandy, Avril Lavigne, Mandy Moore, etc all did such samples back in the early millennium. It's a sweet charged-up pop anthem, just like his contemporaries today, Poppy and Kim Petras are dishing out. Nicopop is one to look out for. And we sure shall!

“Elephant” is shiny and bright. With heart emojis and celestial eyes on our parts just like his cover artwork below! Hit play now on thee ItsNotYouItsMe hit parade.

To Fend Off Netflix, Movie Theaters Try 3-Screen Immersion

According to one of our preferred sources:

"Sit at the back of the movie theater, and it’s possible to see the appeal of ScreenX, the latest attempt to drag film lovers off the sofa and away from Netflix.

Instead of one screen, there are three - one at the front, and two on the sides - to add to the immersive experience you can’t get from the home TV.

First adopted in South Korea in 2012, the system is being launched in the U.K. and theater chain Cineworld plans to add over 100 new screens to the worldwide count of 151.

The technology is the latest attempt by cinema operators to attract film viewers amid the growing popularity of online subscription services like Netflix and Amazon Prime. They’ve ranged from 3D screens launched almost a decade ago to ultra-high resolution IMAX projectors and 4DX - which features moving chairs and real-life special effects like snow falling on the audience.

The focus on innovation has helped in the past. Since 3D was popularized at big cinema theaters in 2009 with the release of films like James Cameron’s Avatar, revenue has grown. Global box office revenue has increased by $14.4 billion in the past decade to $40.6 billion, according to Motion Picture Association of America.

But that growth seems to be fading and movie theaters are being overtaken by internet video. Revenue from internet video like Netflix is forecast to be the fastest growing part of the entertainment and media industry through 2021, according to consultancy PwC. Its estimated annual growth of 6 percent compares with a projected annual drop in cinema of 1.2 percent.

It’s unclear whether this latest innovation will help or stand out.

Cineworld says the idea is “it makes you feel like you’re sitting in the action.”

Robert Mitchell, a film journalist for Variety magazine, notes that was the point of 3D in the first place.

“In 2009, when films like Ice Age and Avatar were coming out, it was the great new thing,” he says. “That lasted for a couple of years until people started to realize that some films were being made that didn’t really use the enhancements well. And it started to put people off going.”

Love it or hate it, the number of cinemas that offer these new types of experiences grows globally every year.

“We’re really confident that by offering customers as much choice as possible that it’s going to bring people into the cinemas,” says Kelly Drew, an operations director at Cineworld." -

Hear the Kinks’ Previously Unreleased Song From 1968

Our psychedelic trippy rebel hearts are palpitating with excitement!

"The Kinks meditate on lazy days and mortality in “Time Song,” an unreleased track that’s on the band’s upcoming 50th-anniversary edition of The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, out October 26th via BMG.

“Time lives our lives with us, walks side by side with us/ Time is so far from us, but time is among us,” frontman Ray Davies croons on the song over a slow, hazy waltz of acoustic guitar and piano. “Time is ahead of us, above and below us/ Is standing beside us and looking down on us.”

Though the British band never included “Time Song” on a studio album, they performed the track live in January 1973 at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in London, England, celebrating Britain’s inclusion in the Common Market.

“When we played a concert at Drury Lane in ’73 to ‘celebrate’ us about to join what was called the Common Market, I decided to use the song as a warning that time was running out for the old British Empire,” Davies said in a statement. “This song was recorded a few weeks later but never made the final cut on the Preservation Act I album. Oddly enough, the song seems quite poignant and appropriate to release at this time in British history, and like Europe itself the track its a rough mix which still has to be finessed.”

The song, which Davies mixed in early 2018, will be issued digitally and as part of the deluxe box set and deluxe 2-CD versions of the reissue. It will also appear a limited-edition seven-inch with pre-orders of the box set via the Kinks’ official Music Glue store.

The box will also include five CDs featuring the remastered original album, B-sides, live cuts, other unreleased tracks and alternate versions, mixes and backing tracks; three seven-inch singles, a gatefold double-LP, various memorabilia and a 52-page hardback photo book featuring sleeve notes, interviews, photography and essays from the Who’s Pete Townshend and journalist Kate Mossman. Full details of the package are available at the band’s site.

Davies also reflected about the legacy of The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, the band’s sixth LP.

“I think The Village Green Preservation Society is about the ending of a time personally for me in my life,” he said. “In my imaginary village. It’s the end of our innocence, our youth. Some people are quite old, but in the Village Green, you’re never allowed to grow up. I feel the project itself as part of a life cycle.”
