OK, the Bond film is out, Thanksgiving is over, and we now return to the standard mix-tape format of Friday Music:
First, though, one last quick bit of Bondage (heh) for
I hit the soul motherload this week — I picked up four double-CD compilations from the UK called “Blaxploitation: Soul, Jazz & Funk from the Inner City”, which , despite the title, are not just tracks from blaxploitation films, but a fantastic general sampler of early-to-mid-70s urban music. Really excellent stuff. Some really great album cover art, too. Anyway, here’s a good track from Vol. 2: Bill Withers – “Use Me.”
Found another great mash-up. The UK’s Go Home Productions mixed AC-DC’s “Back In Black” with Queen’s “We Will Rock You” — along with a bit of Outkast and more. GHP – “Rock in Black”

I am free to focus on my own business, and no longer have to tip-toe around my fellow publishers for fear of reflecting poorly upon RPGNow. In tribute to this liberation, I post the following: Joan Jett and the Blackhearts – “Bad Reputation.”
Aw yeah. Bring it on, bitches. :)

Woo! Triple entendre!
Congratulations and good luck on your new found freedom.
A little Joan Jett is always lends itself well to an attitude adjustment…thanks, I needed that.
Listening to White Rose Movement now… I like! Thanks! Must buy…
There are things you could do, to, you know, have it back…

Dag nabbit! The “Rock in Black” is not downloading. Mrrf!
The Storm Trap song is tight.. Looking now to purchase some downloads of their stuff.
