A couple in Southern England has been seriously putting the WHAM! BAM! in the Thank you ma’am! According to Kelly “The Screamer” Norris’ neighbors, the 29-year-old comes louder than a freight train. Even after the other apartment residents obtained a court order in 2006 to lower the volume on her bumpin’ music, slammin’ headboard, and x-rated dirty talk, she still refused to comply when she got down. Now, we here at the Frisky can appreciate a woman who likes to be vocal, but she’s been teaching a six year old who lives in the building a whole new set of vocabulary words. And Norris has also been giving them more than just an earful, she’s also showing an unwanted eyeful by sunbathing nude in the communal backyard. Man, this chick’s got balls! So how did her neighbors finally beat her off? They cleverly decided to apply for an injunction to ban her boyfriend, Adam Hinton, 32, from visiting her apartment. In court earlier this week, the ban was granted and Norris was also fined $600 for loving too loud (but I think we can all agree that finding a man who makes you scream is priceless.) Although, maybe she should think about moving…into a sound proof place with blind neighbors. [The Daily Telegraph via Fark] Keep reading »

French band M83 sounds kind of ’80s, which is what summertime should sound like, in my opinion. I had Nathan take a listen to their synthy song “Kim and Jessie.” Too bad neither of us can roller-skate, otherwise, we’d totally replay this video over and over and over and over and over until we learned all of the skater girls’ moves. We’d obviously have to wear matching outfits, too.
Catherine: So, we are in the ’80s, undressing.
Nathan: Wait, is this porn? Keep reading »
Do you recognize the name Daniel Powter? I didn’t. He was the guy who sang the song “Bad Day,” which you’ve heard everywhere in the last couple years (“‘Cause you had a bad day, you’re taking one down/You sing a sad song just to turn it around…”). Since Daniel Powter’s not really famous, and “Bad Day” was no “Umbrella,” what made it so popular? The BBC’s magazine investigated…
There’s very little detail about the “you” in the song. He/she stands in line for coffee, and goes for a ride, and that’s about it. This makes it universal.
It’s about a sort of bad day, not one that involved people dying or not having money to buy food.
The song structure is extremely simple, and the lyrics use “we.” Both of these are things that attract advertisers to a song for use in commercials.
And that’s about it. I apologize for getting the song stuck in your head. [BBC] Keep reading »
Nas’s latest album was released today after much ado about the title. He ended up going with the subtle Untitled. Maybe he toned it down because the songs do the talking. Keep reading »

When it’s sexy time, it’s also time to take off your clothes and put on some sweet tunes — like the Pixies, right? Cause you know when I put on the Surfer Rosa record it is time to get busy. Sadly, now my hip, hot record collection favorites are being marketed towards new parents so they can bring the classics of classic rock to their kids. Awwww…ugh. [Simcha, you know you think that baby with the headphones is a-dor-a-ble. -- Editor] Rockabye Baby is a company dedicated to turning the rock, metal, and pop songs you like to do it to into precious little lullabies. That’s right, the same jams that put you in the mood for baby makin’ have been remade for your little bundle of joy. Creepy! When the album you lost your virginity to is on the list (i.e. Nirvana’s Nevermind) it just seems like another sign that you’re are supposed to be squeezing out lil’ screamers by now. But alas, for those actually with mini-me’s the music series features great artists like Led Zeppelin, No Doubt, Bjork, Radiohead and yes, even Metallica, Tool, and Queens of the Stone Age all done over again soft and sweet for nap time. Nicole Richie and Scott Baio spin them for their celebuspawn, because after all, it’s never to early to teach your kid how to headbang to a xylophone heavy rendition of Nine Inch Nails’ The Hand That Feeds.
