1. Avion Anejo
You may have seen this Tequila in a episode of Entourage. It must be cool right? Anejo is aged in American Oak for two years giving it a smooth, too cool for the night taste. approx $60
The issue with tequila becoming so popular is the terrible pricing. Needless to say we found an affordable alternative for the student…or real person lifestyle. Refreshing and light, Espolono Blanco makes for the perfect summer drink. approx $25
Any tequila with a name meaning “dangerous” in Spanish is worthy for the night. Perhaps it could be the big, black bottle that gives the excitement. However, you will enjoy this, and you will have fun. approx $56
Only 2 days till we hit the road to see The Femme Fatale Tour starring the legendary Britney Spears! I saw her Circus Tour a couple years ago and wasn’t impressed at all! Her whole presence/performance was flat.
I didn’t know what to expect when i bought The Fatale tickets this year. But after a Britney video binge I’m more excited than ever to see her in concert! Below are HQ videos of her recent tour leg in Montreal. She was incredible!
After previewing some of the sets I think this is the best I’ve seen Britney in years. Miss Spears is dancing faster & hitting each move hard. She’s engaging, present and powerful in each character & her body is smashing! Her team did a really great job flattering her post mommy body with the costuming. They even pre-recorded a backing track to make her sound live (unlike Circus the music was all CD edit).
This is going to be a night to remember – and we’ll probably party it up somewhere on Church St (Toronto) at an ‘unofficial’ Britney Spears after party!
Listening to Lady Gaga’s next single is an enjoyable experience.
‘Judas’ is extremely good.
Imagine a highly evolved, Titanium-plated ‘Bad Romance’ from the year 2511 travelling half a millennium back in time to save music from a tidal wave of ‘in the club’-obsessed pop drivel, and that’s ‘Judas’. We love this song so much. It’s pop in all the right ways, it’s noisy in all the right ways, it’s brash and bombastic and funny and audacious and stupid in all the right ways, and it’s smart in all the right ways, too. [FULL]
What is the BPM?
Somewhere in the region of 130. Yes, you will be dancing to this song.
Is it actually about Judas out of The Bible or is it pretending to be about Judas when in fact it is about something else?
The first time Lady Gaga played us the tune she told us that in broad terms it was about being in love with the worst guy you’ve ever met, but as you might expect there’s more to it than that. “It’s about leaving your darkness behind in order to come into the light,” she added the other day. “I have a lot of things that have haunted me from my past – choices, men, drug abuse, being afraid to go back to New York, confronting old romances – and Judas represents, for me, something that is bad for me that I can’t escape. I keep going back and forth between the darkness and the light in order to understand who I am.” So, very broadly, the main portion of the song is about Gaga in private and the middle eight is about Gaga in public, two themes that are explored elsewhere on the album too.
Is it better than ‘Bad Romance’?
It’s too early to say yes but it’s too close to rule it out.
Does it actually sound like ‘Bad Romance’?
Well, ‘Judas’ is to ‘Bad Romance’ as ‘Bad Romance’ was to ‘Poker Face’. It’s a new experience in familiar territory, like dancing in your favourite club after it’s had a new soundsystem fitted. The nods to ‘Bad Romance’ are deliberate – Gaga told us that while sometimes it’s important to push herself in new directions, as she does throughout the album, “sometimes I do count my stripes and make sure they’re all there, and ‘Judas’ was one of those records. I wanted it to be an evolution from where I’ve been before but in terms of the formula I wanted there to be something about ‘Judas’ that reminded people of what I’ve done in the past”. So there’s a post-chorus like the ‘Bad Romance’ “whoah-oah-oh” bit (here it’s “whoah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh I’m in love with Ju-u-das, Ju-u-das”), there are some ra-ra post-chorus hook bits (“Juda-Judas, Juda-Judas, Juda-Judas, Juda-Gaga”) and the song unfolds similarly too: post-chorus, post-chorus hook, song slams in with verse one, then pre-chorus, big explosive chorus out of nowhere, then back down to post-chorus, post-chorus hook and so on.
Is it better than ‘Born This Way’?
We think it is 2.5x better than ‘Born This Way’. ‘Born This Way’ could/should only have been the lead single from the album, and it does make more sense in the context of other album tracks, but ‘Judas’ is more up our street. It’s a pop song that’s happy being ‘just’ a pop song and it immediately feels more ‘proper Gaga’ – whatever that really means – than ‘Born This Way’.
Does it sound like any songs by other notable recording artistes?
Will some people dislike it?
Yes, and it is important that these people are able to accept that they are wrong. They will need your love and your respect while they come to terms with this difficult truth. Do not pity them, just offer them your help.
