Ronnie wrenchBiscuit
in Entertainment

In this video you experience the heart and soul of 21st Century Rock Music. The song was written around a Betty Dodson commentary on clitoral stimulation. I used her spoken word for the verses and added a short chorus that rocks the Plimsole. Of course Rock music doesn't rock without elements of sex, drugs, or anti-government sentiment. Here I focused exclusively on sex, with innuendo and images of women from a variety of angles. I really like sex! Don't you? Groucho Marx even makes a cameo appe...

It's So Far Out, The Way Out Is In

M J Steel Collins
in Culture

I remember the moment George Harrison first caught my attention. It was during the run-up and broadcast of The Beatles Anthology documentary series in 1995, when I was 13 and "Free As A Bird" was constantly on TV. George looked rather enigmatic, so somehow I got drawn in. He might also be responsible for killing my Robbie Williams crush by being rather easy on the eye, and witty in interviews. Such is the way of teenage hormones! But it did go beyond the usual whims and ways of the teenage pop i...
