One of the things about being a writer is the realization that someone is going read your words. That person will then form an opinion of those words. Now if I was lucky (and if we all lived in a world of kittens, rainbows and unicorns) they will love what was written and praise my obvious genius to the heavens. But if they don't...well, the next thing you know I just might be tempted to hide under my bed with my pillow and a bottle of tequila and refuse to ever come back out. But let's be honest: As much as we creative types (or any types, really) try to take criticism in stride, rise above it, or in some cases deny it ever happened, it does happen—to all of us. And when it happens, we need to put the harsh words in perspective and re-access our will to live…our desire to create…our special purpose...or at least our sense of humor. Writing a bad review generally isn't fun. One of the things that I've discovered about expression is that I have no clue who is actually reading my article. I've had readers who have commented on my article, emailed me and that I've even met in person that found my article and knew things about me long before I knew them. I still am surprised when someone comes up to me and says they agree or disagree with what was written. Or even still a year later people are remembering what I wrote about them. I can’t apologize for being truthful or factual. I can however take credit for warning others about going places that offer bad service or hopefully stopping someone from making a fashion mistake.

Tips & Tricks Simple and Easy…..bringing out your best for hot summer looks doesn’t have to be rocket science. Check out this list:

Don’t: wide striped, over-processed, bleached hair (unless you are going to a ‘90s theme party) Do: toned, natural, colors. Regardless of lightness or shade, natural tones are always the way to go.. Piecy is ok, just don’t get carried away Don’t: a birds nest belongs at the top of a tree, not on the crown of your head. Do: investing in a quality root lift & hair spray is not a waste of money & will keep the ratting to a minimum Don’t: inches of grey roots, not ever good! Do: if you can’t afford to see your stylist regularly, consider a lighter shade or add highlights to your color. Don’t: helmets are out, unless you have a thing for Darth Vader Do: whether short or long, soft layered hair is always a sexy look Don’t: trying to seal those split ends by frying with a flat iron, not good Do: if your hair is split over your iron, don’t freak out. Curls are always sexy; try using a curling iron. It will give your hair a break from the flat iron, & refresh your look (2” barrel should do the trick) Don’t: flakes come in a box, not from your scalp Do: if you have scalp issues, don’t be afraid to ask for help from your stylist. There are plenty of prescriptive products your stylist has access to. Don’t: greasy, over waxed hair. Do: if you are wearing an edgy, textured look spend a little extra for the good stuff. Cheaper products overkill and leave hair with a greasy look Don’t: age…..I am not saying to throw in the towel, but you don’t want to look like you’ve been running around a college campus for the last two decades. Do: There is a sexy, hip, appropriate look for every age. Find yours

The Fashion Guy I hate it when you see girls who are not even in their teens wearing make-up, low-rise jeans and padded pushup bras. You are a child! Where are your parents and how are you able to purchase clothing like that? To make matters worse, we have the actual adults who want to dress like the teens. Their clothes are too tight and they have more bare skin showing than a nudist camp resident. I can’t decide which is worse; the young girl dressing older or the older lady dressing younger. I know everyone wants to look and feel sexy sometimes, but feeling sexy doesn’t mean wearing a dress that is simply too short. I don’t care if your legs are tone and butt cheeks are perky and firm. I don’t want to see your butt cheeks or your underwear. You’re not a hooker so why are you trying to dress like one? Do you think it is cute to carry your pet around town? If your answer to that question was yes, please slap yourself! Pets are animals. Dressing your dog, cat or whatever up in cute clothes to match your outfit is crossing the line. Taking your dressed up animal out with you to an event as an accessory is double crossing the line. Get a date, not a pet accessory! If you have a child this does not mean you need to wear cartoon characters. You don’t need to buy Mickey Mouse dresses or Hello Kitty shirts. Sure, the clothing is cute on the kid but you’re not a kid. If you don’t have a child and you’re wearing Winnie The Pooh there is something you should be told ASAP. Grow up!

Cocktails

Vanessa Price Owner/ Butlers

If one had to pick their absolute favorite summer drink they may have a hard a time. Some top contenders might be an ice cold Coke, then again maybe it’s a Cherry Limeade from Sonic. Or, maybe it would be a pina colada with a pineapple wedge and cherry on top! Wait, maybe it’s a glass of Sangria with lots of fresh fruit. Yummm! But with the long days, warm nights and parties on the patio the best choice is obviously a Cherry Lime Tini…”it is better than Sonic”. The sweetness combined with the tartness is a perfect combination. Three Olives Cherry Vodka Sweet & sour Grenadine A splash of lemon-lime soda Fresh lime


Rumors

Somewhere in Amarillo the upper crust on Amarillo are dipping bread into various melted cheeses, and drinking beers whose labels they can barely pronounce. Somewhere in Amarillo a $10 bill will afford you the chance to enjoy a elaborate martini adorned with assorted fruits and crushed up mint leaves. Somewhere in Amarillo someone in a Earnhart shirt is bumping elbows with another person in a Kyle Busch shirt. Somewhere in Amarillo a tray full of shots are arriving at a table.

Rumors is fun because I don't feel I have to “perform”, by that I mean if I ever have to ask myself “should I do this here” I am performing. While I find nothing wrong with new ventures and allowing yourself open to new idea and activities its nice to now that no one will ever judge me if I wear a Tool t-shirt into their place of business.

Rumors also has specials during the weekends with $2 jager rumple tuaca on Thursday, Friday $2 crown and Sat night $2 SKYY.


MUSIC

New Woodstock.com Social Network Launches

Woodstock.com, Sony Music and Woodstock Ventures’ joint effort to make “the Web’s most comprehensive live music community site,” launched June 1st. The site is very similar thematically to concert-listing pages like Pollstar and Live Daily, except Woodstock.com allows users to add content like photos and show reviews on artist pages. Users can also make profiles, get recommendations and add friends like other social networks. Unsigned artists are also encouraged to sign up with Woodstock.com to promote their music and befriend users. Right now, other than the Woodstock name, the only other evidence of the legendary festival on the site comes in brief write-ups on the 1969, 1994 and 1999 fests, a sparse “Wikistock” page and a forum where Woodstockers can reminisce about Hendrix’s “Star-Spangled Banner” in ‘69 or looting the merch tent and starting bonfires in ‘99. The site also allows visitors to buy Woodstock-branded merchandise from their site’s store, which is run through Amazon.com, and promises people who sign up for Woodstock.com will get access to never-before-seen photos from the original festival. “Woodstock began as a dream and became a reality that exceeded our wildest expectations,” organizer Michael Lang said when the Website was initially announced. “That dream lives on and our hope is that Woodstock.com will harness the power of 21st century technology to the communal idealism and values that continue to grow out of Woodstock.” The launch of Woodstock.com is the first of many celebrations due this summer as the original festival hits its 40th anniversary. Original Woodstock performers like Richie Havens, Country Joe and Levon Helm are already scheduled to perform at the original site in August, and the Ang Lee-directed comedy Taking Woodstock is due to hit theaters August 14th.

New Reviews: Dave Matthews Band, Neil Young and Jeff Buckley

The Dave Matthews Band returns today with Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, which earned a four-star review in our new issue. Rolling Stone’s David Fricke calls the LP the band’s “most electrifying album yet.” The record serves as a tribute to saxophonist LeRoi Moore, the “GrooGrux King” of the album title who passed away in August 2008 following an ATV accident. DMB huddled in a New Orleans studio with Green Day producer Rob Cavallo for a set of songs that boast big electric guitars and a classic rock feel which compliment its multi-layered funeral parade sound. Highlights include the catchy first single “Funny The Way It Is,” the Pearl Jam-esque “Time Bomb” and the brawny “Why I Am.” DMB fans may have waited four years for Big Whiskey, but that’s nothing compared to the lengthy chunk of time Neil Young devotees have put in awaiting his long-in-the-works. The good news: it was worth it. The 10-disc anthology box set received a four-and-a-half star review from Rolling Stone, with Will Hermes saying of the extensive first volume of Archives, “Once you get started searching the discs’ submenus for rare photos, yellowed newspaper clips, import-only 45 sleeves and lost radio interviews, you may suddenly find the sun has set and the tea kettle has boiled dry.” Stacked with unreleased songs, demos, live performances, well-utilized Bluray technology and so much more, Archives is a must-own for any Young fan, and should keep them occupied well past the day of the second volume’s release.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs Bring Grit and Glitter to Chicago Tour Opener Yeah Yeah Yeahs reworked their scrappy punk sound to brilliant effect on their third album, It’s Blitz!, incorporating rich keyboard textures and displaying an increased fragility on a handful of moodier cuts. But despite the musical shift, the trio sounded anything but delicate as they launched a national tour at a near-capacity Aragon Ballroom in Chicago on Tuesday. Karen O, decked out in tiger-print tights and a patterned kimono, was a blur of movement, spewing streams of water (on both herself and at the audience), stomping on foot pedals to trigger blasts of confetti and incorporating enough frantic dance moves to make Bruno Tonioli’s head spin. The frontwoman appeared to find inspiration in everything from Tai chi to Jazzercise to epileptic seizures (if the weather outside the venue was any indication, it’s likely she tossed in some sort of tribal rain dance as well). Diminutive guitarist Nick Zinner provided a perfect foil to Karen O’s Technicolor presence. Dressed head-to-toe in black and sporting a dramatic haircut, the wiry musician looked as though he’d sprung directly from Tim Burton’s imagination and played as if he’d committed the entire Cramps discography to memory (fitting then that the group tore through a gloriously sludgy version of Lux Interior and Company’s “Human Fly”). Zinner made his instrument roar like a jet-engine on a majestic “Runaway,” laid down a loose torrent of riffs on the bad-acid flashback of “Art Star” and colored a shimmering “Skeletons” with scraping walls of guitar noise. The trio, anchored by ever-steady drummer Brian Chase, benefitted from the presence of touring guitarist-keyboardist David Pajo (Slint, Zwan), who played on more than half the cuts and shaded the songs with everything from acoustic guitar to waves of electronic feedback to sonar pings of synthesizer. Still, Karen O owned the evening, her near-constant Cheshire Cat grin advertising the fact that she relished every second of her 70 minutes onstage. Whether donning a black leather jacket for the hardened electro-groove of “Zero” — a song whose calls to “get your leather on” sounded like a leftover rallying cry from Chicago’s just-concluded International Mr. Leather — howling like a woman on fire on “Man” or dressing like a nimble Luchador for the discotheque-ready “Heads Will Roll,” the singer remained a charmingly outsized focal point throughout. Just take her word for it. As she sang on “Cheated Hearts”: “Sometimes I think I’m bigger than the sound.”

Rare Tim Buckley Live LP With Unreleased Songs Due in August Nearly 34 years after his tragic death, a live recording of folk legend Tim Buckley will finally reach fans’ ears when Live at the Folklore Center, NYC - March 6th, 1967 is released on August 25th on NYC’s Tompkins Square label. Buckley’s performance at the Folklore Center — a gig attended by only 35 people that was thankfully recorded by folk impresario Izzy Young — will be presented in its original running order. The set will also include an unpublished interview with Buckley by Young. Featuring mostly tracks off Buckley’s 1966 self-titled debut and his 1967 follow-up Goodbye and Hello, the live recording also contains six Buckley compositions that have never before been released on any studio or live album: “Just Please Leave Me,” “What Do You Do (He Never Saw You),” “If The Rain Comes,” “Cripples Cry,” “Country Boy” and “I Can’t Leave You Loving Me.” After releasing nine albums ranging from folk to avant-garde over the course of nine years, Buckley died of a heroin overdose in 1975 at the age of 28. Buckley’s son Jeff went on to become an acclaimed singer-songwriter in his own right, releasing the classic album Grace in 1994. Like his father, Jeff Buckley died too young, passing away the age of 30 after an accidental drowning on May 29th, 1997, 12 years ago today. A collection of Jeff Buckley’s live work, titled Grace Around the World will also be released soon.
