Sometimes it can be maddening how connected everything and everyone is; how many people overlap on your Facebook pages or how your “current” is all too often a friend’s ex. It can sometimes feel like the world is closing in on you. Then, of course, there are the other times when you are in the middle of too much new and you’d do anything to talk to a good old …

At one point in the midst of this big presidential primary hoopla, Obama wondered allowed why he would trade his number one position for a lower spot: why he should step down to vice presidency when he could be president? While in his case this was a valid question, we Boinkologists know the pleasure of switching positions…

BoinkMusic: Duran Duran

LL Cool J insisted that we not call it a come back, but we persist anyway, don’t we? Whenever our favorite old stars of yesteryear break from an extended hiatus to put out something new, it just seems like they’re back from the dead (and sometimes their new ideas make you wish they stayed there). But in a music climate where a new band can go from…

BoinkMusic: Hercules and Love Affair

Watching someone writhe on the dance floor can sometimes be a way to assess how they move between the sheets, and, indeed, dancing has been a precursor to many a pleasant tussle in the bedroom. So it is a strange fact that most dance music cannot make the trip from feet on the dance floor to clothes on the bedroom floor. Alas, most dance music is just …

BoinkMusic: B.O.B.

While we here at Boinkology are flexible and open to a lot of things, there are some things we are resolved not to try. Sometimes it’s just obvious to see certain things won’t be good for you, and you have to draw the line…

BoinkMusic: Erykah Badu

The fact that the month has started with the drama of Super Tuesday kinda upstaged the fact that February is supposed to be the month of romance and love. I mean that high drama and verbal jousting just isn’t conducive to kissin’ and huggin’, is it? Well, actually it might be. According to a recent University of Michigan study…

BoinkMusic: Siobhan Donaghy

Sometimes it’s utterly impossible to reinvent yourself. You try and try but people just know you as a certain thing and won’t let go. In cases, like this it might be good to take the lead of Siobhan Donaghy, who was a founding member of saccharine Brit pop group, The Sugababes, but decided to leave, have a break down, and reappear years later …

BoinkMusic: Jay-Z

It’s a new year and all my resolutions have to do with being good and getting my shambolic finances in order. In an effort to cut back in a major area of spending, I’ve resolved to greatly reduce my traveling this year. Of course, I just moved to Europe so staying home is not the insane sacrifice I make it out to be. Nonetheless, for a globetrotting …

BoinkMusic: Georgia Anne Muldrow

At any given moment there are so many strange and terrible things going on in the world, so many conspiracies unto violence, corruption, and human suffering that it can get you down on the whole idea of weirdness. Luckily, in the world of music there are still so many fantastically bizarre and good things that we can open our arms wide …

BoinkMusic: Daniel Merriweather

Every once in a while I find myself slipping into grumpy old lady mode with music, losing interest in anything new. I go into dusty basements and digging my head in boxes to pull out my cassette tapes and old LPs, content to listen to the oldies, certain nothing worthwhile will ever come out. Two to three months of non-stop Christmas music …
