N.E.R.D. - She Wants to Move

N.E.R.D (short for ‘No-one Ever Really Dies’, stylized as N*E*R*D) is an American rock, funk and hip hop band. Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo were signed by Teddy Riley to Virgin Records as a duo, The Neptunes. After producing songs for several artists throughout the late 1990s and early 2000s, the production duo formed the band with Shay Haley as a side project of The Neptunes in 2001.

N.E.R.D’s debut album, ”In Search Of…”, sold 603,000 copies in the United States and was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The album debuted at number 61 on the Billboard 200 and peaked at number 56. It was also awarded the second annual Shortlist Music Prize. The album’s lead single, “Lapdance”, peaked at number 36 of the Hot Rap Tracks chart and number 85 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. The second single, “Rock Star”, peaked at number 36 on the Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart.

The band’s second album, ”Fly or Die”, sold 412,000 copies in the United States and was certified Gold by the RIAA. The album debuted at number six on the Billboard 200. The first single, “She Wants to Move”, has gone top 5 in the United Kingdom, top 20 in Norway, Ireland, and Denmark, and top 40 in Australia and the Netherlands.

In 2005, N.E.R.D ended their contract with Virgin and disbanded. Three years later, the band reunited under Star Trak Entertainment, a subsidiary of Interscope Records established by Williams and Hugo.

The band’s third album, ”Seeing Sounds”, sold 80,000 copies in its first week. The album debuted at number seven on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling 80,000 in its first week. It peaked in the top 20 in Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, while also charting in the several other countries.

N.E.R.D released their fourth studio album entitled “Nothing” on November 2nd, 2010. The album debuted at number twenty one on the US Billboard 200 chart, with first-week sales of 20,000 copies. The first single from the album, “Hot N’ Fun” featuring Canadian recording artist Nelly Furtado, was released on May 18, 2010. “Hypnotize U” the second single off the album was produced by Daft Punk.

Mungo Jerry – In The Summertime

Mungo Jerry – In The Summertime

Mungo Jerry - In The Summertime

Mungo Jerry – Ray Dorset (Raymond Edward Dorset, 21 March 1946, Ashford, Middlesex, England; vocals/guitar), Colin Earl (b. 6 May 1942, Hampton Court, Middlesex, England; piano/vocals), Paul King (banjo, jug, guitar, vocals) and Mike Cole (b. Michael Maurice Cole, 19 March 1943, Perivale, Middlesex, England; bass) – was a little-known skiffle-cum-jug band that achieved instant fame following a sensational appearance at 1970’s Hollywood Pop Festival, in Staffordshire, England, wherein they proved more popular than headliners the Grateful Dead, Traffic and Free. The band’s performance coincided with the release of their debut single, ‘In The Summertime’, and the attendant publicity, combined with the song’s nagging commerciality, resulted in a runaway smash. It topped the UK chart and, by the end of that year alone, global sales had totalled six million.

Despite an eight-month gap between releases, Mungo Jerry’s second single, ‘Baby Jump’, also reached number 1. By this time Mike Cole had been replaced by John Godfrey and their jug band sound had grown appreciably heavier. A third hit, in 1971, ‘Lady Rose’, showed a continued grasp of melody (the maxi-single also included the controversial ‘Have A Whiff On Me’ which was banned by the BBC). This successful year concluded with another Top 20 release, ‘You Don’t Have To Be In The Army To Fight In The War’.

Paul King and Colin Earl left the band in 1972 and together with percussionist Joe Rush (b. Joseph Rush, December 1940, England), an early member of Mungo Jerry, formed the King Earl Boogie Band. Dorset released a solo album, Cold Blue Excursions, prior to convening a new line-up with John Godfrey, Jon Pope (piano) and Tim Reeves (drums). The new line-up had another Top 3 hit in 1973 with ‘Alright Alright Alright’ (a reinterpretation of Jacques Dutronc’s ‘Et Moi, Et Moi, Et Moi’), but the following year the overtly sexist ‘Longlegged Woman Dressed In Black’ became the band’s final chart entry.

Dorset continued to work with various versions of his creation into the new millennium, but was never able to regain the band’s early profile. A short-lived collaboration with Peter Green and Vincent Crane under the name Katmundu resulted in the disappointing A Case For The Blues (1986), but Dorset did achieve further success when he produced ‘Feels Like I’m In Love’ for singer Kelly Marie. This former Mungo b-side became a UK number 1 in August 1980. Bio and picture source…..www.oldies.com

Erectile dysfunction - Joke


A Biker walks into a chemist shop in Sydney and asks to talk to a male pharmacist.
The woman he was talking to said that she was the only pharmacist and that as she and her sister owned the store, there were no males employed there.

She then asked if she could help him.

The biker said that it was something that he would be much more comfortable discussing with a male pharmacist.

The female pharmacist assured him that she was completely professional, and what ever it was that he needed to discuss, he could be confident that she would treat him with the highest level of professionalism.

The biker then agreed and began by saying, ‘This is tough for me to discuss, but I have a ……permanent erection.

It causes me a lot of problems, and severe embarrassment, and I was wondering what you could give me for it.’

The pharmacist said, ‘Just a minute, I’ll talk to my sister.’

When she returned, she said, ‘We discussed it at length, and the absolute best we can do is:


1/3 ownership in the shop ….

A company car…

Five home cooked dinners a week ..

And $1,000 a month living expenses.’

Reggae stars UB40 declared bankrupt

Reggae stars UB40 declared bankrupt

Reggae stars UB40 declared bankrupt

Former chart toppers UB40, who notched up more than 50 chart hits in Britain, have been declared bankrupt.

Despite their glittering 33-year career, four leading members of the reggae band have been declared penniless.

Saxophone player Brian Travers, drummer Jimmy Brown, trumpeter Terence Oswald (known to fans as Astro), and percussionist Norman Hassan were all declared insolvent.

Tax officers can now seize property belonging to the band to pay off their outstanding debts.

There was a bitter bust-up over band finances which split the group following the collapse of their management company DEP International.

A judge sitting at Birmingham County Court ruled that they are bankrupt.

District Judge Richard Musgrave gave liquidators the green light to chase debts and royalty payments on UB40’s hits including chart topping Red Red Wine at a previous hearing in July.

He warned the reggae outfit they would have to pay costs in the case, believed to be in the region of £57,000.

In the week that they were declared bankrupt, they played a gig to fans at the pub where they first performed together in 1978 – the Hare and Hounds in Kings Heath, Birmingham.

The band – whose name comes from the Unemployment Benefit form 40 from the then Department of Health and Social Security – were honoured with a Performing Rights Society plaque at the event.

Former frontman Ali Campbell, a founding member of UB40, acrimoniously split from the group in 2008 following ongoing wrangles over finances.

Last night, his spokesman said the bankruptcy court case showed Ali was right to quit the band.

‘It is ironic that the very week they celebrate their first gig they have been declared bankrupt, after administration began in 2006, vindicating both Ali and Mickey Virtue’s decision to leave UB40,’ she said.

‘Ali did not personally receive an invitation to the Hare show and, as such, did not turn it down.

‘He most definitely would have liked to have been invited as it is where the journey began and Ali is proud of the fact that UB40’s music has been honoured.’

Despite being declared bankrupt, the remaining band members are understood to be recording a new album at a studio in Redditch, Worcestershire.

A fifth original member of UB40, Robin Campbell, Ali Campbell’s brother, was also involved in the Birmingham County Court case although is not listed as bankrupt.

Aussie Mum confronted PNG killers

An Australian woman stood up to a group of bandits even as two of her colleagues were hacked to death on a walking trail in Papua New Guinea.

Bathurst-raised Christiana King, 38, has been hailed a hero by injured survivors after she presented herself as the leader of a group of Australian ex-soldiers hiking the Black Cat Trail.

As the military men curled up in the foetal position, Ms King offered the armed killers money in an effort to get them to go away, the Daily Telegraph reports.

The attack on Tuesday left two porters dead and four Australian tourists seriously injured.

Trekker Jon Hill, an ex-soldier who served in Somalia, said Ms King showed “pure, selfless courage”.

“She offered herself up as the leader. Not so much to be taken away. But to defuse the situation,” he said.

“She got hit, we all got beaten, but she got us out safe.”

Melbourne man Glen Reiss described the attack as completely quiet save for some thumping noises.

“It was silent. Except for hacking, slashing and some moaning,” he said.

“The thumping was the sound of a bush knife hacking into human flesh.”

A former trauma nurse at Sydney’s Royal North Shore hospital, Ms King is now helping with the treatment of the injured porters in a Papua New Guinea hospital.

F3 freeway renamed M1 Pacific Motorway

F3 freeway renamed M1 Pacific Motorway

F3 freeway renamed M1 Pacific Motorway

The name may be different but the traffic remains.

The “F3” is no more, with the freeway between Beresfield and Sydney officially renamed as part of the M1 Pacific Motorway yesterday.

It forms part of the state government’s roll out of an alphanumeric system to tell motorists whether they are travelling on a motorway (M), route of national (A) or state significance (B).

The switch is to make road names consistent with those in Queensland and Victoria, but comes at a cost of at least $15 million

An RMS spokeswoman said the motorists would notice new signs being revealed that display the new name.

“Work to update routes across the state started in May this year and is expected to be complete by the end of this year,” she said.

“Electronic signs will remain in place for several weeks to advise motorists and help them transition to the new alphanumeric road numbering system and road names.”

NRMA Hunter director Kyle Loades said road users would need to familiarise themselves with the new names but that the changes made sense.

“The NRMA does endorse it because it will make it easier for motorists not only across the state but Australia,” he said.

The opposition has described the change as a waste of money.

During budget estimates last week, Roads Minister Duncan Gay struggled to supply on the spot some of the new names, but said the government had reduced the costs from the original estimate of $20 million

Labor said it showed motorists would struggle.

Daft Punk – Get Lucky ft. Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers

Daft Punk – Get Lucky ft. Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers

Daft Punk - Get Lucky ft. Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers

Daft Punk is an electronic music duo consisting of French musicians Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (born 8 February 1974) and Thomas Bangalter (born 3 January 1975). Daft Punk reached significant popularity in the late 1990s house movement in France and met with continued success in the years following, combining elements of house with synthpop. The duo is credited with producing songs that are considered essential in the French house scene. It was managed from 1996 to 2008 by Pedro Winter (Busy P), the head of Ed Banger Records. Early in the group’s career, the band members were strongly influenced by groups such as the Beach Boys and the Rolling Stones.

Bangalter and de Homem-Christo were originally in a band called Darlin’, which disbanded after a short period of time, leaving the two to experiment musically on their own. The duo became Daft Punk, releasing its critically acclaimed debut album Homework in 1997. The 2001 release of Discovery was even more successful, driven by the club singles “One More Time”, “Digital Love”, and “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”.

In March 2005, the duo released the album Human After All to mixed reviews. However, the singles “Robot Rock” and “Technologic” achieved success in the United Kingdom. Daft Punk toured throughout 2006 and 2007 and released the live album Alive 2007, which won a Grammy award for Best Electronic/Dance Album. The duo composed the score of the film Tron: Legacy and in 2010 released the soundtrack album of the film. In January 2013, Daft Punk left EMI Records for Sony Music Entertainment’s subsidiary label Columbia to release its next album.

Daft Punk is noted for its elaborate live shows, in which visual elements and effects are incorporated with the music. The group is known for its emphasis on visual and story components associated with their musical productions. Daft Punk is also known for its use of disguises, particularly the ornate robot costumes, while in public and/or performing.

UB40 – Can’t Help Falling in Love

UB40 – Can’t Help Falling in Love

UB40 - Can't Help Falling in Love

UB40 are a British reggae/pop band formed in 1978 in Birmingham, England. The band has placed more than 50 singles in the UK Singles Chart, and has also achieved considerable international success. The band has been nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album four times, and in 1984, they were nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Group. One of the world’s best-selling music artists, UB40 have sold over 70 million records. Their hit singles include their debut “Food for Thought” and two U.S. Billboard Hot 100 number ones with “Red Red Wine” and “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. Both of these also topped the UK Singles Chart, as did the band’s version of “I Got You Babe”.

The story of UB40, and how this group of young friends from Birmingham transcended their working-class origins to become the world’s most successful reggae band is not the stuff of fairytales as might be imagined. The group’s led a charmed life in many respects it’s true, but it’s been a long haul since the days they’d meet up in the bars and clubs around Moseley, and some of them had to scrape by on less than £8 a week unemployment benefit. The choice was simple if you’d left school early. You could either work in one of the local factories, like Robin Campbell did, or scuffle along aimlessly whilst waiting for something else to happen.

By the summer of 1978, something else did happen, and the nucleus of UB40 began rehearsing in a local basement. Robin’s younger brother Ali, Earl Falconer, Brian Travers and James Brown all knew each other from Moseley School of Art, whilst Norman Hassan had been a friend of Ali’s since school. Initially, they thought of themselves as a “jazz-dub-reggae” band, but by the time Robin was persuaded to join and they’d recruited Michael Virtue and Astro – who’d learnt his craft with Birmingham sound-system Duke Alloy – the group had already aligned themselves to left-wing political ideals and forged their own identity, separate from the many punk and Two Tone outfits around at that time. The group had nailed their colours to the mast by naming themselves after an unemployment benefit form. Their political convictions hadn’t been gleaned secondhand either, but cemented in place whilst attending marches protesting against the National Front, or rallies organised by Rock Against Racism.

Sean Connery

Sean Connery

Sean Connery

While one might dispute the actual number of people who would qualify for star status, no one would dispute the premise that Sean Connery is one of them. Moreover, he is not merely a star – he is a super-star.

He began his theatrical career as an extra in the chorus, playing bit parts, and modeling. From those modest beginnings, he has become an international film icon. Many believe that his talent and appeal continue to improve with time.

His humble beginnings, growing up in a working class neighborhood in Edinburgh, gave no indication of the achievements that were destined to come. Sean was born into a working class family in August of 1930. The oldest of two boys, he spent much of his youth working at menial jobs, just to get by. He left school at an early age and went to work fulltime.

At sixteen, he enlisted in the Royal Navy. Like many young men in the Navy, he opted for a tattoo. However, unlike many tattoos, his were not frivolous – his tattoos reflect two of his lifelong commitments: his family and Scotland. After six decades, his tattoos still reflect those two ideas: One tattoo is a tribute to his parents and reads “Mum and Dad,” and the other is self explanatory, “Scotland Forever.”

After three years of Naval service, a long bout with a stomach ulcer shortened his “naval career”. He returned to Edinburgh and seemed to settle into a life of hard work: bricklayer, lifeguard, and coffin polisher. Sean spent much of his free time bodybuilding, a pastime that eventually started his acting career. His hobby of bodybuilding culminated in a bid for the 1950 Mr. Universe title where he placed third.

From his early acting days until his first superstar role, Sean’s stardom was certainly not an over-night success story. From his first work in modeling, bit theatrical parts, and chorus appearances, it was almost eight years before he was cast opposite Lana Turner in Another Time, Another Place (1958). It would be another four years before he first uttered those unforgettable words, “Bond, James Bond.”

Connery skyrocketed to international fame as the suave, confident (and many say definitive) Secret Agent 007 in six of Ian Fleming’s Bond movies over the next decade: Dr. No (1962), Goldfinger (1964), From Russia, With Love (1964), Thunderball (1965), and You Only Live Twice (1967), and Diamonds are Forever (1971).

He then broadened his career with an Agatha Christie whodunit, Murder on the Orient Express (1974), John Huston’s adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s adventure, The Man Who Would Be King (1975), the medieval romance, Robin and Marian (1976), and Peter Hyams’ sci-fi film, Outland (1981). He resurfaced as a much wiser and more mature Bond in the 1983 adventure, Never Say Never Again. For a complete list of his films, see the filmography page.

The 90’s brought such great films as The Hunt for Red October (1990, as a Russian sub commander); and 1993’s Rising Sun (as an expert in all things Japanese); Dragonheart (1996); and the successful contemporary action dramas Just Cause (1995); and The Rock (1996). In 1999, Connery starred in and produced (Fountainbridge Films) Entrapment, a love story-thriller, costarring Catherine Zeta-Jones. The year 2000 brought what many have said to be one of his best films, Finding Forrester. Sean’s latest movie “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” was released in 2003.

Many critics and fans alike have said that the quality of his acting has only improved with age. Certainly his personal appeal has. In 1989, at almost 60 years of age he was voted People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive.” When advised of the award, Sean seemed to be unaffected as he replied, “Well there aren’t many sexy dead men, are there.”
