Taylor Swift Makes A Savvy Business Move And Purchases Porn Domains

Taylor-Swift5

(PCM) In an incredibly smart business move to help protect her brand, pop superstar Taylor Swift has purchased two porn domain names: TaylorSwift.porn and TaylorSwift.adult. It is the hope that by her owning those domains it would put a stop to any internet trolls who would make an attempt to dirty up the singer’s image online.

Over the past few years the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers have significantly expanded the amount of generic top-level domains that one can purchase. In early days you could purchase the normal .com, .net, or.org, but now there are some more interesting choices available such as .adult, .porn, .xxx, and .sucks.

We are actually kind of surprised that Swift and her team did not purchase .sucks as well! While not open to the general buying public yet, certain individuals were given an opportunity to register these new generic top-level domains before everyone else. They will be open for public consumption on June 1, 2015.

Doyle Interview And Concert Review: Reverb In Reading, PA

Doyle-55

(PCM) Doyle may be a man of very little words, but his music speaks volumes and trust me, it was turned up full blast during the band’s recent show at Reverb in Reading, PA.

Doyle-138

Doyle is currently out on the road in support of his debut album “Abombinator” and he along with the rest of the band are gearing up to release a follow-up due out later this year. The band consists of frontman Alex Story of Cancerslug, drummer Anthony “Tinybubz” Biuso (previously T.S.O.L., The Dickies, Hed (pe)), and touring bassist Dietrich (Die Trich) Thrall (standing in for Left Hand Graham), and of course the almighty Doyle himself!

The crowd at Reverb that evening may have been small, but they were no less mighty and Doyle delivered a set that was chock full of raw aggression and emotion. So much so, that it literally filled the entire room. Watching Doyle and front man Alex trade-off both slithering and stomping about the stage was hypnotic and overall I was lost in the music from beginning to end.

Doyle-44

Doyle is a true monster with his guitar, as he pounds the strings in animalistic fury and never misses a beat. The band overall had an excellent stage presence and truly commanded the attention of the audience from start to finish.

Doyle-12

The band played through the “Abombinator” album at break-neck speed and of course die-hard Misfits fans were pleased, as several classic Misfits tunes was spliced into the set. The tour is just beginning to get underway and Doyle has several upcoming shows with both Mushroomhead and Dope that will last throughout the early spring.

Prior to the band’s performance we were able to catch up with Mr. Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein himself to learn some details about the upcoming second album, his delicious “Hotter Than Hell” hot sauce, as well as, touring plans for the rest of this year. Check it out below :

The Light Continues To Shine For Daryl Hall And John Oates

Hall-and-Oats-21

(PCM) Every time I have had the pleasure of seeing Daryl Hall and John Oates perform live, I know that I am in-store for a fantastic evening of stellar musicianship and of course some delightful catchy melodies.

When Daryl Hall and John Oates take to the stage, they churn out hit after hit from beginning to end. To this day, they still have the ability to cause the women in the crowd to lose their minds and more panties were flying at the stage than I have seen at any other rock show in quite some time.

There is a reason that Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famer’s Daryl Hall and John Oates are still the number one selling music duo in history. They always knew just how to craft the perfect song and their 14-song set spanned the entire length of their extensive career. Opening up with “Maneater” and “Out Of Touch” to closing their second encore with “Kiss On My List” and “Private Eyes”, there was not a single song that I wanted to hear that was left out of the evenings incredibly tight set list.

Hall-and-Oats-41

The women in the crowd went truly wild during both “She Gone” and “Sara Smile” and I personally had the best time ever dancing my heart out to hits such as “Rich Girl” and my personal favorite “You Make My Dreams”. I adore hearing these songs in the live environment and a lot of the new arrangements do a fantastic job at enhancing an already phenomenal song.

The pair appear to be having a fantastic time on stage and while many artists who have been in the game as long as these two could afford to “phone it in” so to say, Daryl Hall and John Oates sounded both fresh and energized and put on a truly outstanding performance.

Daryl Hall & John Oates are soul survivors. Signed to Atlantic by Ahmet Ertegan in the 1970’s, from the mid-’70s to the mid-’80s, the duo would score six #1 singles, including “Rich Girl” (also #1 R&B), “Kiss on My List,” “Private Eyes,” “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do) (also #1 R&B), “Maneater” and “Out of Touch.” By 1987, the R.I.A.A. recognized Daryl Hall and John Oates as the number-one selling duo in music history, a record they still hold today. In May 2008, the duo was honored with the Icon Award during BMI’s 56th annual Pop Awards. In 2014, the two musicians hit another high as they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

(PCM) We are deeply sadden to report that Twisted Sister and Adrenaline Mob drummer A.J. Pero has tragically passed away at the age of 55.

A statement regarding Pero’s passing was posted on the official Facebook page for Twisted Sister which read “The members of Twisted Sister are profoundly saddened to announce the untimely passing of our brother, AJ Pero. The band, crew and most importantly the family of AJ Pero thank you for your thoughts and prayers at this time.”

Miss-May-I1

“The Honeymoon Tour” Featuring Ariana Grande And Rixon At The Wells Fargo Center

Ariana-Grande2

(PCM) It’s always nice getting over to the big arena for a spectacular show.  When in the Philadelphia area it’s always a treat to check out the large production shows that the Wells Fargo Center brings. Known by many as the face on some of Nickelodeon television’s most popular programs Ariana Grande has made her way from the screen to the stage. It would be easy to say that her popularity from these shows helped, but truthfully it’s her talent and shining star that helps keep her relevant to her many fans.

Opening was Manchester, England natives, Rixton. Making the most out of every second they had on stage the four pack made up of Jake Roche, Charley Bagnall, Danny Wilkin and Lewi Morganpiece group went right to work. Rixton opened with “Wait on me” to an appreciative Philadelphia audience following with their hit song “Make out”. It was great to hear a song that I recognized, and one I won’t forget as many of fans in attendance sang along with them.

Though most boy bands have to go through the motions of connecting with fans there was a real genuine energy and charisma that the group showed. They were entertaining to watch and looked like they were having a good time. Rixton played seven songs, my favorite being the cover medley of “Fine China / Uptown Funk / Crazy in Love”. The dancing and stage presence of these guys is something you don’t want to miss. I am sure this will not be the last time we talk about Rixton. Rixton will soon be hitting the road for a summer tour with Ed Sheeran, so we absolutely can’t wait to catch these guys when they are around again this June.

After a 20 minute changeover it was time for Ariana Grande to hit the stage. The lights went down and a roar of 20,000 screaming girls filled the air at the packed Wells Fargo Center. The girl we used to know as “Cat Valentine” is all grown up now. The innocence she showed on “Victorious” and “Sam & Kat” have been replaced with beautiful sparkled dresses and stiletto heels. Aided by a full group of back up dancers Ariana showed why she is making her way up the pop charts. Opening with her popular hit “Bang, Bang!” — Ariana went into full dance mode, leading her dancers like a true pop star. The way Ariana took control of the stage was very impressive leading her dancers like she has been doing this forever.

Each song came with a full costume change with sparkled dresses and stiletto heels being the theme of the night. Though she was singing to a parent in tow younger audience I always had the feeling that Ariana was performing like she is trying to shed the teenage innocence of her TV character and enter into adulthood as a pop superstar. As she performed through her one and half hour set Ariana showed a comfort in being on stage using props like clouds and beautiful chandelier’s to carry her through the air into or out of each song. The background light screens and lights also played into her performance, using perfect light and video combinations to build up each song. The fans sung along as she performed flawless versions of songs like “Be my Baby”, “Best mistake”, “Tattooed heart” and “Love me harder”.

If the fans in attendance did not get enough interaction with Ariana the highlight moment of the night came when everyone sang happy birthday to one of her back up dancers. There was so much child parent bonding at this show you couldn’t help but leave with a song in your heart. Catch Ariana Grande on “The Honeymoon Tour” in a city near you!
