Wanna see Jimi Hendrix’s schlong? Vivid Entertainment – home of such cinema classics as Secrets of Titty Fucking, Gang Bang Angels 4, and Poonies -- has just released Jimi Hendrix The Sex Tape, a silent movie made about 40 years ago featuring the guitarist getting his freak on with a pair of ladies.
Famous groupies Pamela Des Barres and Cynthia Plaster Caster (who makes plaster molds of rock star’s dicks) provide running commentary throughout the film. The tape – which comes out today -- gives a whole new meaning to “Dolly Dagger.” --Michael Gallucci

Blogger Todd Forsgren is a Bay Village native who, unlike C-Notes, doesn’t consider traveling east of Willoughby to be adventurous. So the 1999 St. Ignatius grad is spending the better part of the year in Mongolia. (That’s by Buffalo, right?)
Forsgren is the recipient of a Fulbright grant in photography. He’s based in Ulaanbaatar, but he’s been gallivanting around the Mongolian countryside since February. His project involves photographing the community gardens of Mongolia, and his experiences thus far have included ice festivals with ridiculously cute horses, observing the constructions of gers, traversing frozen taiga forests, and drinking reindeer milk tea. ...

Tuesday night's B-52's/Eagle Seagull show at House of Blues is sold out (although you might be able to snag some tix on craigslist or elsewhere.) If this makes you really sad, click the video above for "Love Shack," the 1989 single that rejuvenated the career of the veteran band, which was founded way, way back in 1976. And click here for a vintage performance of their first big song, 1978's "Rock Lobster." Caution: Though it has extra cowbells, you'll also see singer Fred Scnheider, rail thin, and with an oversized mustache. It ain't pretty. -- D.X. Ferris
Remember Urge Overkill? Come on, dig deep. They’re there somewhere between those Soul Asylum and Breeders songs you've buried. That’s right – they had a radio hit with “Sister Havana,” right when alt-rock was busting out in 1993. Their cover of Neil Diamond’s “Girl, You’ll Be a Woman Soon” was in Pulp Fiction. Apparently, they’re still around. And Scene photographer Walter Novak caught their show (with the Suede Brothers) at the Beachland on Friday. Check out Walter’s slide show. --Michael Gallucci

Time was when winemaker’s dinners were a rare treat. Then distributors figured out what a great marketing tool they make. Now you can’t pop the cork on a bottle of Veuve Cliquot without hitting some visiting winemaker in the noggin.
Not that we would ever suggest such a thing. For novice and connoisseur alike, the dinners offer a fine opportunity to sample new wines, learn about food pairings, and develop a broad appreciation of the winemaker’s craft.
An upcoming Kokomo Winery dinner at Boulevard Blue (12718 Larchmere Blvd.), on Monday May 19, sounds worth a taste, thanks to the educational presence of winemaker Eric Miller, a roundup of the winery’s top vintages, and savory dishes from BB chef Matt Mytro. ...
