LOVE IS THE DRUG
Roxy Music’s 5th release Siren is arguably their best albums and could be considered one of the best glam rock albums ever, if only for the hits “Love Is The Drug”, “Both Ends Burning” and “Just Another High”.
Perhaps their finest hour, consistent and thematic, and released almost 45 years ago. All said, Siren has aged very well. Their last album Avalon comes close, although it belongs to an entirely more mainstream family. Continue reading “”

A simple car shoot video rig is ideally compact, lightweight, and easy to use. It’s also hopefully not too expensive. After all, it’s your vision and message that will determine the success of any film more than anything else.
Whatever rig you choose, you don’t really want to compromise much on quality – for the camera, the lens, monitor or the audio mic. Continue reading “”

Well, I ventured out the other day to fly my DJI drone. It lost connection with my controller, hit a tree, and fell 75 feet to the ground. Fortunately, the only things that broke were the four propellers, which are easily replaceable. Believe me, flying a drone is not for the faint of heart! Continue reading “”
Tracy Chapman broke the airwaves in April 1988 with this song and others on her self-titled album. Singles from the record, like “Fast Car” and “Baby Can I Hold You” are still relevant today. The CD, or better yet, the record or the elusive 12″ single discs, are audiophile grade music. Check it out. Continue reading “”
