Coming Attractions

by Janine Ashbless

All this week I've been obsessed with Rammstein. Now, heavy metal by enormous sweaty German badboys wearing eyeliner isn't everyone's cup of tea. Hell, it wasn't mine until it happened. One moment I was an innocent, the next hooked. I've bought 2 DVDs. I've listened to them incessantly as I worked. I've worried about the political implications on my blog.

Sometimes it happens like that. You step out of your comfort zone. You try something new - something you know in advance you have no interest in. And suddenly you discover a diamond.

Lust Bites is always showcasing new stuff, things you may have never thought about before. We've had slash fiction and flash fiction, e-books and evangelicals, vibes and etymology, BDSM and cross-dressing, Alpha males and skinny boys, T-shirts and fuck-me shoes, love and lust. Lots of lust.

And without Alison Tyler's helpful links, how would I ever have stumbled across fisting gloves and ball-stretchers? (Ow!)

This week we are bringing you more delights: on Monday Portia da Costa will be revealing a steamy excerpt from her e-book Wild in the Country, proving that there is more to rural life than baling twine and grumpy farmers.

On Crush Wednesday Anne Tourney will be sighing over Brooding Existentialist Men - and interrupting their soul-searching to throw them roughly to the crumpled sheets and tear off their clothes, I suspect.

And on Friday Deanna Ashford will be kicking off an ongoing series, Work in Progress, in which you get a sneaky preview of the projects us Lusties are currently working upon. Because we don't all sit round downloading tanz-metal from YouTube most of the day, oh no...

In the meantime I leave you with Rammstein as dwarfs having their bottoms spanked by an enormous scary Snow White. Play it loud!

Wow, I'll have to listen to these guys.

A dirty, sweaty madman - moi?

Oh, OK then. You got me. Jeepers, that video is amazing. I go away for a few days and come back to that. It's deliciously disturbing and nuts. I must go away more often. And that Wiki link is the best. Great to hear about on-stage antics such as *Till Lindemann unzipping his pants and pulling out a dildo with a hidden connected hose, which in turn sprays water onto the crowd and band members during Bück dich ("Bend down" or "Bend over", lit. "Bend thyself")*

Bück dich. That's a very nice phrase. Thanks for improving my German, Janine.

Ooh, Rammstein. Yes. I do like Rammstein.

And I never thought of looking them up on You Tube. Ta.

Alison Tyler said...

Introducing people to fisting gloves and ball stretchers since 2007. Just one more service I offer.


Janine Ashbless said...

Lust Bites: it's a real education.

Have you noticed? - Till Lindemann is pointing at Deanna's bottom.

Ally said...

Congrat's Eloise.


After watching the video and checking out more I realized there was a song that I had heard a while back on the movie Triple XXX that I really liked, Feuer Frei. Thanks for leading me to it.

I love Rammstein and have seen them 4 times.

Check out the video for "Du Reichst so Gut!" too!

Janine Ashbless said...

Ah - lucky Sara. Rammstein and Kasabian are the two bands I'd like to see live. The rest are better on video.

How bizarre. The giant tools, the spanking Snow White... like nothing I could have imagined.

Look at all you nice girls accepting Rammstein into your lives!

I can't wait for the brooding existentialists. I hope Angel's in there somewhere - or even just another photo..
