Embracing the ideals of the French Revolution, yet despising the tyranny of the new Emperor Napoleon, Francisco Goya y Luçientes was a man of contrast and conflict. Braggart, court painter, war journalist, and political, as well as religious but a satirist, he lived much of his life in the shadow of the Inquisition, yet he enjoyed the patronage of a conservative Catholic king.
In his paintings he depicted all aspects of late 18th and early 19th century Spanish life: the leisure class enjoying a day on the banks of the Rio Manzañeras, a traditional bullfight, a tavern brawl, common people dancing a bolero or fandango . . .

On the heels of releasing his new song "10/10" in the summer of 2019, Rex Orange County announced his newest album, Pony- the highly-anticipated follow up to 2017's Apricot Princess. The album was written, recorded, and performed almost entirely by Rex himself at Strongroom Studios in East London with frequent collaborator Ben Baptie co-producing, engineering and mixing the album. Pony includes "10/10", which Rolling Stone called "triumphant" and a "song you need to know" and was described by NPR as "a sincere, sad-boy gem." The album follows standout performances at a handful of major festivals in 2019, including UK's Glastonbury (where he first debuted "10/10"), Paris' We Love Green, Berlin's Lollapalooza, and Australia's Laneway Festival.

WHOREible Decisions Live
@The Improv - Houston
Sunday 2/23/2020 7:30PM
Last year podcasters Mandii B and Weezy grossed over a quarter of a million dollars from their weekly podcast WHOREible Decisions. This best friends duo branched out to "live" performances and this weekend (Sunday, February 23, 2020) they're in the Bayou City at the Improv on the Katy Freeway.
Last month Essence.com interviewed the pair about their zany and absurd sex talk concerning sex while on vacation.
Why do you think it’s important for women to explore their sexuality when they’re on vacation?
Mandii B: Girl, we did a whole podcast on that! I think that, because a lot of women are scared of what people think, when they’re on vacation around people who don’t know them and won’t be able to run back to their cousin or your lover, they’re able to explore more. When you’re on vacation that is when you can let your inhibitions go and just kind of be free and you know, do some things.
