Check out Lonestar Texabilly Radio for good rockabilly, psychobilly

Well, loyal reader, by now you have noticed that the music features have been pretty irregular recently. I won't spend too much time bemoaning that fact. I will only say that I haven't been getting much response from music artists. But the show must go on, right?

I recently found a podcast (so much better than commercial radio) called Lonestar Texabilly Radio. I caught up with the podcast in episode 6, which begins with a cover of "La Isla Bonita" by Happy Drivers. To be honest, I cannot stand Madonna, but this song was pretty good, enough to keep me listening.

This podcast features hard-to-find rockabilly and psychobilly tunes. Episode 6 features songs from Cave Catt Sammy ("Your Money Makes You Purty"), King Sickabilly, Hillbilly Moon Explosion, and others. Overall, the host plays a lot of worthwhile tunes that are bound to keep your toes tapping. In episode 6, he did talk a little more than he needed to, but I'm interested enough to check the next episode when it comes around.

Fox of the Week (7/28/10): Chi Chi Bonita

Chi Chi Bonita is a model who was born in Germany and lives in Charlotte. She discusses a perfect evening, the challenges of modeling, and the modeling job she would never decline.

Complete the sentence. Chi Chi Bonita is...

Determined to be great, don’t be jealous, embrace her! (laughs)

Thong, boyshorts, other or none?

None, I really don’t like underwear, my friends hate it when I walk around them naked. (Author's note: Ummm...really? Why?)

Describe your idea of a sexy (day or) evening.

My idea of a sexy evening would be started off by cooking dinner together with my significant other. Then we would sit at a candlelit table and just talk until our food was finished. Next, we watch a funny movie and just hold each other while finishing dessert. Then maybe we make some magic. (laughs)

Describe how you felt at your first photo shoot.

At my first photo shoot I was pretty scared because I didn’t know what to expect but once that camera started clicking I knew this was it. I found my niche and I just went with the flow letting everything come natural.

What is the most challenging thing about modeling?

The most challenging thing about modeling is the prejudices you have to deal with. Everyone thinks that they know what type of female you are just because of the pictures you take. It’s very hard to make a name for yourself in this business so you have to make sure you are doing things to set yourself apart from the wannabes.

Who are some models you admire? Why?

I admire any and all models that are doing things right in the business. I feel like any woman who is modeling and still living by her morals and beliefs is a rarity nowadays so I salute them!

What is the one modeling gig you would not turn down?

Fox of the Week (7/21/10): Kaeo Black

Kaeo Black is a model from LA (and yes, she is a knockout, isn't she?). She discusses her first photoshoot, cooking for her man, and a model she admires.

Give us a quick course in Kaeo 101.

My name is Kaeo Black (pronounced K.O...I know I'm a knock out right). My name actually means "The Victorious" in Thai. I'm a model looking to network, work with you, or be of some service. I'm a cool, down-to-earth chick and I like to chill and hang out. I love the Lakers. I love to travel and I am hoping to be able to go backpacking around Europe one day soon. That would be amazing! Other than that I can chill and hang out with my friends and loved ones. Some of my hobbies include sewing(so everything can fit like a glove), cooking, hiking, and my new found love pole dancing. (Not that I want to be a stripper or anything but its really good cardio and it just upgrades your sexy). I just love being the center of attention where ever I go! I am a chemistry and womens studies major at Santa Monica College, hoping to transfer fall 2011 to UCLA. I want to do research in the women's health field, probably on lupus or sickle cell. I am a very intelligent, well spoken model and I want to prove to the world that a model can have both brains and beauty.

You enjoy cooking. What would you cook (the entire meal) for your
significant other for an occasion like a birthday? What would you wear for
the occasion?

I love to cook and bake just about anything! First off, the birthday dinner would be the favorite dish of my man at the time. But if I had to pick, I'd pick one of my favorite dishes. I always like to start off with a fresh salad before any meal. I love mixed green salad with Italian dressing. For dinner I'd make him shrimp penne pasta with a creamy basil pesto sauce, and garlic bread on a sourdough loaf. And I'd add a little fresh basil and chopped dried tomatoes on top for garnish. To drink, I'd probably choose a French Chardonnay or an Italian Pinot Grigio. For dessert I'd hand make him chocolate covered strawberries and feed them to him. As far as my wardrobe goes I would wear a wife beater and a pair of his boxers. I think if a woman can pull this look off and still be sexy she's a keeper! I don't always have to be in lingerie to keep my man's attention.

Describe how you felt at your first photoshoot.

My first photo shoot was a DISASTER! The photographer was such a pervert and made me feel so uncomfortable! He was growling and making sexual passes at me the entire time I was shooting. I think he thought he was making me feel sexy, but he was actually making me feel uncomfortable and nervous. I was so happy I brought a friend with me to the shoot though. After that I was done with modeling! Luckily about a month later a friend of mine shot with a photographer I'd been talking back and forth to on Myspace and told me how sweet and professional he was. So I decided to give it another try with him. I am so happy I did because I haven't stopped since!

Who are some models you admire? Why?

I really admire Suelyn Medeiros. She's extremely beautiful and she seems really sweet even though I don't know her personally. None of her posts on twitter are ever bitchy or negative and I love that! I am a very positive and humble person and I feel like she has that same attitude. I hate a woman that thinks shes the baddest chick in the world because there is always a woman in the world that's prettier. I know we should all be confident but there is a way to show your confidence without being arrogant and cocky. I think she's gorgeous and I would love to meet her one day!

What is one modeling job you would never turn down?

I'd never turn down a modeling job that I could potentially learn and gain experience from. Gaining knowledge and meeting people is more important to me than the actual job itself, because in this industry sometimes you can get farther solely on who you know.

If you could only accomplish one more thing, what would it be?

If I would accomplish just 1 more thing, it would be to be in a fashion add on a billboard on Sunset. My ultimate modeling goal is to be on a billboard and I would love for it to be where everyone can see it, so why not have it on Sunset Blvd!

    Describe a perfectly sexy evening.

    A sexy evenin for a nice fitted dress (no underwear) with the tallest stillettos possible. Inside of a South Beach club surrounded by the stars and friends.

    Who are some models you admire? Why?

    Buffie the Body because she changed that light-skinned versus the dark-skinned modeling stereotype. She is a great example of taking what she has to get what she wants. She has workout videos, books, comics, and more. She basically stepped out of the box and did something other than the norm. Also Tyra Banks to pick her brain and absorb all of the information she was offering to release. She has gone above and beyond everyone’s expectations.

    What one modeling gig would you never turn down?

    Music Videos because it allows me to be even more creative by becoming a totally different character.

    If you could only accomplish one more thing, what would it be?

    My own dvd titled, ALL THE WAY LIVE.

  • The Sumner Brothers: singin' like hound dogs

    The Sumner Brothers is a band from Canada, currently working on a new album with a tentative release sometime this fall.

    What is essential to every Sumner Brothers song?

    Hopefully...that it's worth listening to

    Why should I have your music in my collection?

    So you can support a couple poor fellas from Canada who got no other skills other than pluckin at a 6-string and singing like hound dogs

    If you could write and perform a song with one artist, who would you choose? Why?

    The Streets - just think they're the best thing going right now, that I've heard - there's a lot of good stuff, but they're the best. And I'm speaking for myself of course. My brother Bob might have a very different opinion.

    What would you be doing if you weren't making music?

    Mailman, city worker, delivering papers, truck driver - something where I had to work with as few other people as possible.

    Check out "Ant Song" by The Sumner Brothers.

    Fox of the Week (7/7/10): Caramel Coated Chrissy

    Caramel Coated Chrissy is a model originally from New Orleans. She was referred to us by Fox Tracks favorite Kitty Kennedy. You're in for a treat this week, dear reader.

    Give us a quick course in Caramel Coated Chrissy 101.

    I’m a 29 year old full-time mother & part-time model originally from New Orleans. I began modeling only about a year ago when my best friend & now manager Kitty Kennedy got me started in the business. I’ve been published quite a few times since then and have plenty of features that I’m presently waiting on being being released.

    Describe how you felt during your first photoshoot.

    My first photoshoot was a scary, but fun experience for me. I was really nervous in the beginning, but both Kitty & the photographer Ralph Lenard made me very comfortable. Ralph is a great photographer to work with and he made me feel sexy, which calmed me down and brought out something in me I didn’t know I even had. I know that sounds crazy!

    What do you find most challenging about modeling? What do you find most rewarding?

    In the beginning the most challenging thing for me was how to control my facial expressions. Even after all of this time, I’m still working on that. I sometimes struggle with the things I’m dealing with in life while shooting, and I’ve learned that’s a big no-no! Everything you feel shows on your face, so I try to leave the outside world on the outside so that I can focus on being a beautiful fantasy in someone else’s eyes. The most rewarding thing is seeing myself published. I love that!

    What is the one modeling gig you would never turn down?

    Either to shoot with someone in the business that I admire, or to have to travel to a place I’ve never been to do a shoot.

    If you could only accomplish one more thing, what would it be?

    I’d like to be on the cover of a major publication, not just featured on the inside.

    Naked and Shameless = Drunkabilly

    Complete the sentence. Naked and Shameless are...

    Drunkabilly (good times and strange salvation).

    Describe how the Beer-Naked wedding came about.

    Buck realized how much he loved beer. Dave said, "if you love beer so much, maybe you should marry beer." It was a phenomenal event.

    What is essential to every Naked and Shameless song?

    A theme or a concept and a boatload of references.

    Every Naked and Shameless show?

    A quorum of drunks to whoop and holler.

    Why should I have your music in my collection?

    Because there will be times where you'll have to tell someone to check something out...because it really shouldn't exist...the kind of stuff you'll remember at 3am when the party makes that turn...

    If you could write and perform a song with one artist, who would you choose? Why?

    Buck: Tom Waits. He has a man crush on Tom Waits.
    Dave: Mojo Nixon. Unbeknownst to Mojo, he's the godfather of drunkabilly. Or William Shatner.

    What would you be doing if you weren't making music?

    We get into plenty of trouble, even without the music. We're always looking for other ways to document the madness.

    Fox Tracks model update: Coli Hellraiser

    Petite model Coli Hellraiser was featured here in December. Recently she was featured at Model Mansion and Cutie Central. Can you think of any model who is more suited for a site called Cutie Central? The photo you see here is just a taste of what you'll see in her feature.
