The Roland 808 – A Documentary on the Machine that Revolutionized Electronic Music

The Roland 808 gets its much deserved moment in the spotlight with a new documentary, 808 , celebrating this legendary piece of equipment, “the heart of the beat that changed music.” Released in the early ’80s, one of the first programmable, flexible, drum machines, its far from realistic sound and ability to create low frequency beats made it perfect for back in the day hip hop tracks and soul classics, its greatest contribution made to “Sexual Healing” by Marvin Gaye and most famously, “Planet Rock” by Afrika Bambaataa.  Its subsequent use across modern dance, house, drum and bass, techno and anything else that needed a shot of electronic goodness cemented the 808′s iconic status. Produced by You Know Films in association with Atlantic Films, the likes of Arthur Baker, Pharrell, Hank Shocklee, Questlove, Lil Jon, Afrika Bambaataa, Todd Terry, Rick Rubin, Armand van Helden, Goldie and more pay their tributes in 808, due next year.

These 10 Tips Will Get Her Hornier Than Ever

For some women, the thought of giving up responsibility for their sexual satisfaction is a powerful turn-on. Prepare her by telling her what you will do to her tonight (you can leave her a note or a voice message or send her an e-mail). Demand that she prepare for it by wearing your favorite « slave » outfit and making herself beautiful

How To Get Her Hornier: Improve The Ambience

We sometimes have difficulty tuning out loud noises like your barking dog or blaring TV lights, or ignoring the noxious smells of rotten food emanating from your messy kitchen.

How To Get Her Hornier: Be A Great Kisser

How To Get Her Hornier: Use Verbal Reinforcement

In our society, which idolizes perpetual youth and often sets unrealistic beauty standards, many women feel insecure about their looks and self-conscious about their naked bodies. When a woman feels insecure, she is unlikely to be in the mood for sex. To increase her sexual responsiveness, tell her between kisses and as you touch her body that you find her beautiful and sexy, that she turns you on, and that you want to enjoy every part of her body before making love to her.

How To Get Her Hornier: Consume Erotica Together

Many women prefer aural to visual erotica.

How To Get Her Hornier: Explore Her Fantasies

Ask her to tell you her fantasies or to email them to you.

How To Get Her Hornier: Try Role Playing

Pretend you are a Penthouse photographer and invite her to pose for you, or a pizza delivery guy who has a secret crush on her, or a policemen arresting her as she is about to get out of her car. This is another variant of exploring her fantasies (and yours). One great way to indulge in what is likely a mutual fantasy is to ask her to play a stripper or a call girl with you as her patron
