City Lounge: New York (Book Two, Chapter Ten: Izzie’s Mental Game)

Chapter Ten: Izzie’s Mental Game:

Izzie raised her eyebrow at Neil.

“So, talk to me,” she said. “Who exactly are you?” The butch woman lowered her eyes.

“Uh, I like bikes,” she said.

“Do you?”

“Yeah.”

“What kind?” Izzie leaned in with her eyes fixed on her target. She had only heard the stories of Neil from Hayley. The way she talked, this butch lesbian sounded like Michael Myers. But from she saw, Neil looked like a shy little bunny rabbit aching to run away.

“Harley-Davidson.”

“Ah. Suits you well.”

“Uh… Thanks.”

Izzie tilted her head. “You don’t talk much, do you?” Neil looked away, blushing. Izzie sat back with her arms behind her head. More

City Lounge: New York (Book Two, Chapter Nine: Neil)

Chapter Nine: Neil:

Izzie looked around her neighborhood. What did she want to do today? She looked around at the tall buildings towards the sky. Yes, today was going to be her day. Izzie’s lips curved into a smirk. Maybe she could go down to one of the neighborhoods and hang around for bit. She moved her arms behind her head. The best part was she would have all day too.

Izzie made her way down to Brooklyn. She suddenly felt like a having a slice of pizza. Keste West Village sounded just perfect right about now. Izzie could taste that hot melted cheese to her lips right now. Okay, she settled on that. She stuck up her arm in the air. More

City Lounge: New York (Book Two, Chapter Eight: Izzie’s World II)

Chapter Eight: Izzie’s World II:

Izzie rules her world. She knows what she wants and will chase it down. Kris and Dianne try their best to keep up with her crazy. How does she keep them in her life? That’s all her secret.

This morning, she danced around in her room to Roy Ayers. Dianne walked up to her open bedroom door. She knocked on the hard white wood. Izzie spun around and froze.

“Yeah?” she asked. Dianne seemed to be shouting something at her.

“What?” Izzie asked over the loud music. Her girlfriend shouted louder again.

“What?!” the writer asked again. Dianne sighed and rolled her eyes as she reached over to turn off the stereo. More

City Lounge: New York (Book Two, Chapter Seven: South Side Crush)

Chapter Seven: South Side Crush:

Hayley stood in the library with Neil’s eyes on her back.

Noooooo! Nooooo! How did this happen?! Why is she here? Oh god, why? Why? She turned around and forced herself to smile.

“Uh… hi…” she said. “Neil… I wasn’t expecting to see you here.” Hayley nervously laughed.

“Shhh!” the old librarian hissed. Hayley ducked her head and clenched her teeth.

“Sorry,” she whispered. The big butch black lesbian stared at her the whole time. Hayley rubbed the back of her head. Oh crap! Why does she have to be here? I don’t know what to say around her. It didn’t help that Neil had to look so attractive too. Hayley looked around for something, anything. More

Controversial Album Covers IX (End)

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.

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.

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.

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…

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…)
