I’ve never seen the show Fringe, except for a few minutes of its reruns that was once on a channel that is now called SCI, that use to be called Discovery Science. But I would like to see a few shows of it in the future, if for no other reason that to see Anna Torv in it. Because I gotta be honest, reading the synopsis of it online, was not an attention grabber for me. You would have to be either an X Files junky or a sci-fi junky in general, which I’m not to be into fringe.
Fringe is about this made up division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, that is run by the Department of Homeland Security. Well anyone in America familiar with the FBI and DHS, knows that the FBI is not part of DHS. So that is one problem for Fringe, but it gets worst for me. Because the Fringe unit so to speak on the show’s job is to investigate the abnormal. Crimes that can’t be explained, supernatural events. Which is just not my cup of tea.
I like cop shows and law enforcement show in general, especially if they involve detectives or other investigators, that are believable and based on realty. That is just who I am as both a Liberal and as a person that I’m into things that are believable and credible and go where the evidence takes me. And that is just not Fringe, but what Fringe looks like is another one of those trendy supernatural detective shows, part of that genre that the Sci-Fi Network and FOX made popular in the late 1990s and the last ten years.
Beautiful sexy German women, tall and with curves, which is pretty common for German women in Germany, or in Austria, or in America. And I’m not just saying this because I’m German myself, a German-American that is. But if you look at Pennsylvania, or the upper Midwest especially, but Ohio as well, you’ll see a lot of healthy looking women and a lot of healthy ethnic-German women as well. German-Americans are a large percentage of the American Midwest and roughly a quarter of the United States population as a whole.
With all os the sausages, beef, potatoes, egg noodles that the German people eat, we would have to be pretty curvy. Because food like that fills you up and sticks to your bones and when made right, makes you strong. This women who I believe is from Germany, would fit in very well in Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa to use as examples. Even with the German accent, because she wouldn’t sound a whole lot different from the people who already live there.
Miranda Lambert I believe is from rural Texas and looking at her background and her personality she’s about as country as a country girl can be. And I mean that in a good way, she’s real and she knows who she is and where she comes from. And isn’t ashamed of that and never afraid to be who she is. And I have a lot of respect for people like that. And I try to be the same way and hopefully I’ve succeeded. I know who I am and where I’m from and proud of it. And not or ever afraid to express it either because its real.
This is who Miranda is that she’s basically telling the world to “deal with it the best you can and accept it or not”. But she’s not changing who she is because she knows who she is. And thats the only person she knows how to be. Miranda Lambert is a real person not a phony wannabe something else that she’s not and she not changing who she is. I’m a what a call a blues rock fan, which is essentially classic rock mixed in with rhythm and blues. I’m a big fan of Eric Clapton and consider him the king of this style of music. I’m also a big fan of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band for similar reasons.
I also like Tina Turner and Dave Matthews as well as Sheryl Crow. As well as Jim Morrison, Jimmy Hendrix who I consider to be the best guitarist of all time. And Janis Joplin, Carlos Santana and Aaron Neville to a certain extent. Aerosmith is my favorite band and who I consider to be the best classic rock band in the world if not all-time. And they have a blues sound to they’re music to a certain extent, but they’re mostly a classic rock band with a great sound. And the best in the business as far as I’m concern. So when I here someone playing this style of music and they sound like they have a good idea what they’re doing, especially if you wouldn’t of guessed that they play this music, I take notice which brings me to Miranda Lambert.
Miranda Lambert is a country singer, or at least has thats in her background. But she has a hell of a voice for classic rock or even blues rock. And she mixes classic rock into her music and sometimes sings pure classic rock songs. She even has a version of Joan Jett’s rock classic, I love Rock and Roll. And if anything I think she sounds better singing it because I think she has a better singing voice than Joan Jett. Who I also have a lot of respect for who’s also a excellent classic rock artist. And who’s still going very strong now in her early 50’s.
Miranda Lambert has a song called Gunpowder and Led, which is what I would call a country rock, mixture of the two. For anyone who thinks they could never like a country singer or any other form of country music, listen to a few of them from time to time you might be positively surprised. Because a lot of them are not pure country singers and combine other sounds into their music. Miranda Lambert is an example of a country singer who has successfully made a transition from country to classic rock without forgetting who she is and where she came from.
There is maybe two songs from Shakira that I like that I’ve heard in English. I speak maybe two-hundred words of Spanish, so if someone is singing in Spanish, good luck to me and trying figure out what the hell the person is singing. Because I’ll pick up a few words here and there, not enough to give me a great grasp of the song. Unless it is an Americas song with the same music, but the person singing the song in Spanish. Then I’ll not only know what song they are singing, but probably be able to follow along as well.
Shakira has a few songs that I like. Whenever from 2002 and a couple of others with the titles escaping me right now. But she has a great voice and a great sound as far as her music. She has a hell of a band that almost sounds like blues rock or Latin rock. She would do very well performing with American classic rockers and hard rockers. And also she’s so damn baby-face adorable and gorgeous at the same time with a nice body. It is real hard for a straight guy anyway, not to check her out.
Shakira is a classic sexy baby. Baby-face adorable with real sex-appeal of a women and not a little girl. But she is also very talented as well and she has all of those things going for her at the same time. And then you put her on stage with that voice, that passion and body and then you put her in skin-tight leather jeans and boots, that is just the icing of a huge birthday cake. That makes you want to sit there and eat it the whole time and prey it never ends and goes away.
Joan Jett hasn’t been a great rocker chick for the 1970s, or the 1980s, or the 1990s, the 2000s, or today. She’s been a great rocker chick for all of those decades and times, because she has a style and brand that is of her own that she has perfected and made work for going on forty years now. She first hit it big in 1977 or 78 when she was still a teenager and has been going on ever since. And her music is about herself and her own life and what she has experienced. And is real and she isn’t someone who tries to be anyone else or has copied anyone else, or has needed to. She’s the ultimate American original.
Songs like Hate Myself For Loving You and I love rock and roll, are about her and her own life. Her own experiences and not some copycat of some other performer that has made it big, or has just made it big and trying to copy of that so they sound hot or cool as well. She’ll never be mistaken for a girl band performer, the female version of a boy bander that became popular in the late 1990s. Because she has her own act and her own style. And wouldn’t want to be part of that anyway.
Joan Jett is the ultimate rebel with a cause, because there really isn’t any other rocker chick you can compare her to. Not least as one who has been nearly as successful and has been as successful for as long as she has. I’m not a huge fan of hers, I like a few of her songs, but the thing I respect most about her is how real she is and original she is. Who does her own thing whether it is considered hot or awesome by the pop culture establishment, or not. And she’s taken a lot os risks and has been very successful as a result.
I first saw Alannah Myles black velvet in late 1990 or early 1991 when I was a freshmen in high school. And I was blown away by the video. The blues rock sound was about as good as anything I’ve ever heard from Eric Clapton and Bruce Springsteen, my two favorite blues rock artists. I was also blown away about how sexy Alannah looked in the video. The concert footage of the video with her in that black leather motorcycle jacket and the black leather chaps over black denim jeans and the black leather biker boots. She looked like a classic rocker chick in the video and way rocker chicks should look.
VH1 played this video from when it came out in 1989-90, to early 1992 or so and the song did very well. But the thing that I’ve never understood about Alannah is how come her career isn’t bigger. With that beautiful blues sounding voice that goes great with blues and classic rock and how well written Black Velvet was written. I’m not an expert on the music business obviously, but you would think those qualities and her beautiful sexy look, would’ve led to more opportunities.
Alannah Myles career to me at least is a “what could’ve had been”. Because she is a talented writer and singer, but her career just quite hasn’t taken off. Joan Jett who I do like, whose been in the business going on forty years now, is not as good as Alannah. They have slightly different sounds and Joan is more of punk rocker than Alannah. But Alannah has a better voice and has better music, but right now over twenty years later , she’s basically a one hit wonder. She is known for Black Velvet and that is about it.
The only thing this video is missing and it could at least arguably be viewed as important, is a picture of Blake Lively herself. And I’m really talking about her face to show the audience that this is really Blake Lively in this video and not someone else perhaps pretending to be her. But assuming that was Blake Lively in this video, you can see why sexy celebrities perhaps especially female ones are so popular in skinny jeans, especially with boots and why they get so much attention in that combo while they are out in public. Perhaps especially on Facebook and YouTube. But also why so many celebrity interest bloggers and I’m not one of them for the most part, but why they blog about celebrities sexy women especially celebrities in their jeans and boots. Because when they wear that combo people notice right away and their jeans and boots get noticed right away. Which is great business for everyone involved.
This song is a good song in the sense that it has a good beat and rhythm to it. Very uptempo and a good enough band for it. But I believe the main reason why Gloria Estefan broke up with The Miami Sound Machine is because she was too big for them. She was a soon to be a superstar and her band was basically a local band that didn’t do much more with their careers after she left them. I believe the only memorable moments from the 1-2-3 video is Gloria Estefan herself. She just looked and sounded incredible. She really is a beautiful, adorable, sexy woman when she looks good. And checking her out in that black leather jacket, the blue Levis, the black leather chaps, the black leather boots. She looked like this gorgeous sexy biker chick at a rock concert. And this video moves so fast with Gloria moving all over the place having a great time and moving with her band.
Gloria reminds me a lot of Alannah Myles in her Black Velvet video from 1989 where she’s wearing the black leather biker jacket with black leather chaps over black denims , with the black leather boots. And both Gloria and Alannah have great voices as well and just makes for a very entertaining music video. The other memorable thing about this video is that it was shot at the Miami Arena in 1987 or 88 before Miami had either an NBA or NHL franchise. Just wish she did more videos like this and did them as a solo artist in the 1990s and now she’s not only be seen as a great singer, but very beautiful and sexy singer who has great talent, but also looks great. Similar to how Alicia Keys and Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Shakira and many other great female musical artists are seen today. But there will always be 1-2-3 and this concert is also available on YouTube and you can buy it on DVD as well and be able watch her sing and move around all you want.
A short but sweet video of a sexy female driver. I love women like this who prove they can do traditionally male jobs, but who are actual women. And shows that women can be women, meaning feminine and not have to be, lets say dykes in order to do jobs like this. We see this cowgirls and biker chicks as well. With very feminine and attractive sexy women who fit in very well in these cultures, because they are from it, part of it and know it. And don’t act butch and are trying to be like guys doing these jobs. But are sexy feminine attractive women who also happen to be truck drivers. Because perhaps that is the business they grew up with their fathers, or simply decided they wanted to do on their own.
’ll be real honest and say that I’m not that familiar with Cherie Currie other than I know she’s friendly with Joan Jett and they perform together. But she sort of sounds like the female version of Alice Cooper. But a much more feminine voice and a much better voice. Alice is more of a heavy metal headbanger and perhaps the current king of leather and leather jeans at least in rock and roll. Especially since Jim Morrison passed away in 1970. Cherie sounds to me more like a hard rocker and not a classic rocker and perhaps has a similar sound as Joan Jett. Her Cherry Bomb to me sounds like Warrant’s Cherry Pie from 1990-91. She definitely has a solid sound and I’ll check her out more in the future.
