Busted a nutt with some guys jacking at the gym earlier and then in the bathroom by the theater in Atlantic Station with some more guys! Damn I nutted hard both times! Where else is there to Jack in Atlanta?
NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg shot this amazing picture of these volcanic islands, along with Von Karman vortices in the clouds flowing around them. These form as masses of air split around protruding objects such as islands sticking out of the sea. Only four of the seven main islands are visible.
Started the day with the SouthE Fannibals at the Bodies Exhibit at Atlantic Station. Many new head-canons were lit (and I expect y'all to tag me in any that get written) 😂
Then we played Wendigo Bingo created by @laura3c273 who very generously brought prizes too!
Hannibal Mads Libs were played (video to come) before sitting down to dinner at Rosa Mexicano where there was this wall of naked men diving into the ocean that ain’t none of us were gonna complain about.
Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect Saturday! Definitely planning another one of these when I’m back in December. If you live in the South and want to be added to the email alerts, please message me cause we’d love to have you along!
On this day in music history: October 30, 1979 - “Just A Touch Of Love”, the fourth album by Slave is released. Produced by Jimmy Douglass, Steve Washington and Slave, it is recorded at Atlantic Studios, The Power Station in New York City and the House Of Music Studios in West Orange, NJ from June - September 1979. Having made their breakthrough with their self titled debut album with the R&B chart topper “Slide” in the Summer of 1977, the Dayton, OH based R&B/Funk band quickly follows it up with their sophomore release “The Hardness Of The World” in December of 1977. The album is only a modest success compared to Slave’s Gold selling first album, as is their third release “The Concept” in August of 1978, fairing significantly better due to the single “Stellar Fungk” (#14 R&B). It is with that third album that the band makes significant personnel additions, including vocalist and drummer Steve Arrington, guitarist and vocalist Curt Jones, vocalist Starleana Young and keyboardist Raye Turner. With this line up of Slave solidified, the band return to the studio in the Summer of 1979 to record their fourth album. Led by Arrington’s singularly unique and brilliant singing style, which band members jokingly call “singing so wrong, but sounding so right”, gives the Ohio funkateers another edge to their sound, that sets them apart from their peers. The albums title track “Just A Touch Of Love” (#9 R&B, #26 Club Play), featuring Mark “Sir Hansolor” Adams’ signature and much imitated bass line is an instant smash on R&B radio and club dance floors, becoming one of the bands signature songs and a cornerstone of late 70’s funk. The song is also later covered by R&B singer Keith Sweat, who also sites Steve Arrington as an influence on his vocal style. It spins off one further single with “Foxy Lady (Funky Lady)” (#55 R&B) in early 1980. Long out of print for years, “Love” is remastered and reissued on CD by Get On Down Records in 2010. “Just A Touch Of Love” peaks at number eleven on the Billboard R&B album chart, and number ninety two on the Top 200.
