R.Kelly’s sexually charged Black Panties is pretty much the dream soundtrack for any porn film. R. Kelly likes to think he’ll contribute to next year’s population with his baby-making, R&B songs, but where this album lacks in romance, it over compensates in raunch.
The 13 track album, featuring collaborations with Kelly Rowland, Ludacris, Jeezy, and 2 Chainz, has a few standout tracks, that may or may not be because of the absolute ridiculous lyrics about vaginas, cookies, and making funny faces in a mirror because it's fun. The songs could be instant classics depending on your level of prudeness.

It's that time of the year again- the Grammys have finally announced the 2014 nominees for its 56th annual awards ceremony, which will air live on January 26th. To no surprise, but very much deserved, Daft Punk have scored four nominations in the following categories: Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Best Dance/Electronica Album.
Having already won six Grammys, Skrillex has stepped aside to allow artists such as Disclosure, Pretty Lights, Duke Dumont, and Armin van Buuren a shot at winning the prestigious award. 2014 will also see the return of past nominees Calvin Harris and Kaskade, who will be at heads with one another in both "dance" categories.
In every age, and on any frontier, an explorer needs his navigational tools. In so much, the technology of exploration has evolved quite radically over the centuries. We went from the cross-staff, to the back staff, from the compass, to the GPS, and so on and so forth. As human beings we have a natural instinct to explore; we want to find new places where there’s cool stuff, and plenty of action. Now, thanks to the digital age, the wireless age, and the digitally witless age, we no longer have to explore alone. There’s an app that connects every pub bar fly, pub crawler, and high end alcoholic and lets them instantly share their discoveries. Its a little marvel of technology called Untappd.
