A Beatles Role Play!

Hello my dears! I just wanted to plug a Beatles-related community of mine here, see if some of you might be interested.

Nothing Is Real is a Beatles role play community! It partly deals with mature themes, which is why we are friends only, but you can of course join just to read the threads. We are open to gen, het and slash. AUs are accepted, but not original characters. The game is mostly centred around the Beatles but any character even loosely connected with the 60s or 70s art scene is welcome, really.

It's a 'no strings attached' sort of role play which basically means that you can apply for as many characters as you want, Beatles, Beatles wives or friends and there can be as many players as we want, even for the same characters. You can also choose your time and space span, build it up through several threads or jump from one thing to the other freely. It fact it isn't a well-built rp as much as a den, a place for you to meet other role players and start threads freely with the ones you like.

If you are interested in role playing in the Beatles universe, don't be scared to have a look around at the rules and introduction posts, and message me if you have any questions! Role playing is pretty much like reading/writing fan-fiction, except that you do it with one or several other people, which is always good fun, unexpected and stimulating. Hope to see you around!

Electro Rock Act Paris And The Hiltons Releases "Reading Journals, Part One: Puzzles Of Ithaca"

Phil Jourdan of the UK electronic rock act Paris and the Hiltons announced the release his third album, "Reading Journals." The album is being released in three stages, and upon completion will boast 22 tracks. The first installment, "Reading Journals, Part One: Puzzles of Ithaca" features 7 songs that are based loosely on William Faulkner's book Absalom, Absalom.
Commenting on how his latest album is different from the prior two, Jourdan responded, "This album really has scope. It's a twenty-two track work and includes jazz, rock, electronica, weird avant-garde stuff, ballads, jams, IDM beats, and so on. It sounds different from what people would have expected from us, but I think it sounds better, too. And the focus on literature is important as well, because it let us go in a direction that most people don't think of going." He continued, "Basing the album on works of fiction meant I had to reread things, figure out what I wanted to focus on, and discard themes in those books that I knew were important but that didn't particularly move me."
"Reading Journals, Part One: Puzzles of Ithaca" is available for download at Bandcamp.com at http://parisandthehiltons.bandcamp.com/album/reading-journals-part-one-puzzles-of-ithaca. "Prettyface Tinybruise" and "Fracture and Slice" are both available for purchase at iTunes.

Eliot Wayne - "Lost In You"


Eliot Wayne’s “Lost In You” is absolutely “music to the ears.” The video shows the 3 member Austin, Texas band performing “Lost In You” and trust me, if you like rock and roll, or if you like great music at all, then this is a video to watch. “Lost In You” was written by Eliot Wayne, who also plays guitar and sings lead vocals. Nick Louis is on bass and Brannen Temple is on drums. The band calls their brand of music “new alternative heavy blues rock,” but whatever you call it, you have to call it good. Well written lyrics with really crisp rock and rock music and good harmonies make “Lost In You” a winner for both the band and the viewer.

Tony Adamo - Groove Therapy

San Francisco Bay area singer/songwriter Tony Adamo delivers some of his best work to date with his remake of Tower of Power’s “Groove Therapy.” “Groove Therapy” is a cut from Adamo’s CD Straight Up Deal, and this is a vibrant, earthy track with a definite 70s feel and all the funk you can handle. The horn section features members of the original Tower of Power horn section, and Tony smoothly delivers the “therapy,” musically speaking, that is. The “doctor” is definitely in the house. With crisp music, a nice guitar solo break, and the band at the top of their game, “Groove Therapy” comes together in a style that most can only envy. Adamo seems to have fun with this track with his deep, sultry, and commanding voice, and the expertise from the horn and percussion sections put the song into overdrive.
