Chapter Eleven: Walking Around in Paris… Again:

Simone looked up at me. “Do you want to do more shopping or go get dinner?”

I shrugged. “Depends on you.”

“Sometimes, I would like you to lead the way,” my love says. I would love to, my dear. But, you have all of the power. I just happily follow you wherever you go. Simone snuggled up to me in the rain lightening up.

“I feel like walking around some more,” she said. I nodded a little bit.

“Sounds good to me,” I said. Simone smiled and giggled. Good thing that the rain is starting to stop. Paris still looks good in this weather. Texas looked so dull in the rain. I felt Simone’s head against my shoulder. More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Eight: Strange Beauty)

Chapter Eight: Strange Beauty:

I still can’t figure Simone out at times. We’ve been dating for four months now. Somehow, she still manages to surprise me. I looked at a vintage movie poster on the wall of the record store. The woman looking all sensual in the splashes of bright pink, orange, and yellow reminded me of Simone in way. Speaking of which, I felt someone tapping me on the shoulder. I glanced out behind me from the corner of me. Simone stood, smiling.

“Want to go upstairs?” she asked. I turned around with my eyebrow raised.

“Upstairs?” I asked. “There is an upstairs?” Simone giggled and took me by the hand. Okay, my sexy witch. Where are you taking me now? More

City Lounge: Paris (Book Three, Chapter Four: Fun Night)

Chapter Four: Fun Night:

Last night was amazing. Simone came over and lured me into a hot night. She’s been coming around my apartment more and more often lately. I’m not complaining. Simone’s always coming up with fun stuff for us to do. Last night was no different.

-Last Night-

I hadn’t planned on doing anything for the night. My video game felt kind of dull, but I pushed myself to keep going. The French campaign mocked me. The enemy kept trying to kill me. What was I missing here? I checked every place around me in this level.

Suddenly, my doorbell buzzed. I lifted my head. Hm?  Who could that be at this hour? I got up and walked over to the door. More

City Lounge: Paris

Chapter One: Nothing to Do Around Paris:

-Will-

Six months in and we are still together. I am pretty much used to Simone’s wild and adventurous ways. I look forward to where she’s going to be taking me each day. Her family and I get along very well. (Okay, Charlotte still isn’t fond of me. But, she doesn’t count for this.)

I woke to find my lovely in the kitchen. Simone was turning on the coffee pot as she hummed. She’s been staying over at my place lately. I couldn’t remember a night when I was alone. I snickered to myself as I crept up behind her. I embraced her from behind and kissed her on the neck. Simone giggled as she bunched up. More

Controversial Album Covers IX (End)

Year: 2015

Justin Bieber: Purpose

ssuijof

The Problem: An alternative cover was reportedly created by Justin Bieber’s team for his Purpose album after several Muslim nations across the Middle East, North Africa as well as Indonesia, took issue with Bieber being shirtless in the original artwork and flaunting his cross tattoo, promoting Christianity.

My Take: Oh, no one likes Justin Bieber anyway.

Controversial Album Covers IX (Pt. 25)

Year: 2013

Beady Eye: BE

u08qy5m

The Problem: Album covers get banned for all sorts of grisly reasons, and in Beady Eye’s case in 2013 the reason it was pulled from supermarkets was a simple nipple. Liam said: “It’s not porn, is it? It’s classic, man. Classic nipple.”

My Take: It’s not bad. It’s just a nipple. We haven’t seen that for the millionth time. What is it with people freaking out over boobs? It’s okay for a man to be topless, but not woman? That’s just dumb. What’s more shocking to me is that Beady Eye broke up in 2014. Shows how much out of the loop I am.

Year: 2012

Kanye West: Cold

ja1zklf

The Problem: The cover designed by George Condo features a woman body with bare breasts. It was intended to be the cover art of the song when the name was “Theraflu”. When Kanye West changed the name of the song to “Cold”, a new cover was revealed, which also caused controversies for bare breasts.

My Take: Oh Kanye, Kanye, Kanye, Kanye… You will forever be a joke to us all. Just you and Kim go far, far away and never come back.

Cradle of Filth: Thornography

t7lim0c

The Problem: In news posted on the official Cradle of Filth website in mid-May 2006, it was revealed that the planned artwork for Thornography had been vetoed by Roadrunner Records. A replacement was soon forthcoming, although numerous CD booklets had already been printed with the original image. The controversy was over the nakedness of the female figure’s legs on the original cover.

My Take: Legs? Really? They were upset about her legs? That just seems like a dumb reason. It’s not like it was showing her genitals or anything. It’s just her legs. Get over it, people! Also, I wasn’t sure if I had gotten the right version of this cover. I think it’s right. Let me know if it isn’t.

Year: 2004

Leftover Crack: Fuck World Trade

dqdm3o6

The Problem: Political punk pot-stirrers Leftover Crack released a shocking album cover to accompany their Fuck World Trade album cover. Released just shy of three years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the album features a collage of the World Trade Center towers in flames with a gas pump labeled Haliburton pouring the flammable liquid onto the towers as politicians look on and laugh. The album’s title pre-dates the attacks and were used as lyrics in 1999 to members’ previous band, Choking Victim.

My Take: Very bold move especially in the Bush-era. Pretty bold. Pretty bold…

Controversial Album Covers IX (Pt. 21)

Year: 2002

Impaled: Choice Cuts

fzy8k0y

The Problem: When it comes to goregrind, there’s not much that can be considered shocking given the grotesquery found within the lyrics. While overtly violent, the genre has always maintained an aura of fun with tongues firmly in cheek. However, that doesn’t make album art like Impaled’s Choice Cuts compilation easier to look at, as it features a newborn baby lying in a pool of blood and guts with a hacksaw placed to its throat by the doctor.

My Take: Well, that’s one way to control the population. The gore doesn’t really surprise me at this point. (Just go back and look through this project through all of the gory album covers.) At this point, I am so numb to the shock.

Lore Gore: The Autophagous Orgy

dzgtadw

The Problem: Lord Gore tapped Japanese hentai artist Waita Uziga for their debut record, The Autophagous Orgy. Uziga needed no inspiration considering the word “autophagous” means “self-devouring.” The album cover is a particularly brutal take on hentai (anime porn) with caricatures of women drenched in blood in a sexual feast of human flesh. Lord Gore certainly live up to their band name with this album cover.

My Take: Ero Guro rules this cover. This would make Dir en Grey proud. A little note here: “hentai” means perverted. Americans are the ones who decided call Japanese animated porn as such. I believe it’s egore. I have to look it up later. I tried to look up Uziga-san, but couldn’t find much about him. He does have a manga called, Mai-chan’s Daily Life. It’s just like this album cover. So, yeah… (Plus, there was a live-action movie too. Oh buddy…)
