Irish coffee is a hot coffee beverage that includes liqueur and whipped cream. The cream can be whipped although some recipes do state that it should not be whipped.

The coffee is drunk through the cream in much the same way as a cappuccino.

The beverage was said to have been invented by an Irish chef known as Joe Sheridan while there are also GermanAustrian, and Danish varieties.

There is also a tendency to name some other varieties of coffee beverages after the region in which it originated such as adding rum to make Jamaican coffee or Scotch whiskey to makingHighland Coffee.

Blondes Ambition

The house music pumping pair of Sam Haar and Zach Steinman, better known as Blondes has been creating a stir in the underground with their second album Swisher. The album has been talked about a lot lately with its A and B sides “Business” and “Pleasure” and “Hater “and “Lover”. The full-length album is a mixture of German sounds from the early 1980’s.

According to Steinman, who was speaking to Electronic Beats, the pair takes a conceptual art approach which goes back to their days in college when they were part of a band called Misty which was all percussion instruments.

Haar and Steinman both graduated from the Oberlin College over ten years ago.

And Steinman says he isn’t quite sure if they are a better live band or playing in the clubs because they get mixed reaction from fans. Some prefer them live; others prefer them in the club.

Haar does admit thought that he doesn’t know if the music works in the club scene as the pair started out with the intention of doing live electronic playing although it was also always intended to be dance music.

moderat

The Berlin techno super group Moderat is preparing to release its second album entitled II later  this year. The group, made up of Modeselektor with Sebastian Szary and Gernot Bronsert and Apparat (Sascha Ring). The trio has been working together for the last ten years after coming together to find ways to explore electronic music after meeting at a festival in Berlin.

One of the highlights of the new album, which was written in the dead of winter, is that all the beats were done from scratch using both sampled and re-sampled music from the studio – analog and looped.

The new album features synths, warm bass tones and rolling drum programming, as well as melancholy vocals. The group says it continues working together because of a shared past in the German city attending illegal parties following reunification.

In an interview with Electronic Beats, Moderat said that all the members worked on getting the album together. “Everybody did everything, it wasn’t like one person was the drum programmer and the other one was making the melodies. It’s really mixed,” said Sascha Ring. “We wanted to resample stuff and use it over and over again. We wanted to wear the sound out on purpose,” Ring added.

robert_pattinson2

It seems Robert Pattinson thinks that Twilight fans should have moved on by now from the series which made him famous.

The British actor who starred in five Twilight saga films told a German magazine that he couldn’t understand why persons were so fascinated with the movies and asked what these people do with their days.

The 27-year-old Pattinson told “Interview” magazine: “The real odd thing about this Twilight target group is that they aren’t really teenagers. Most of them are older”.

This isn’t the first time that Pattinson, who also starred in the Harry Potter franchise, has insulted his fans.

He once said that the book by Stephanie Meyer was one that wasn’t supposed to be published.

The English actor, who broke up with fellow Twilight star Kristen Stewart and had dated her friend and Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, Riley Keough, wants to break away from his association with the vampire character that made him famous – Edward Cullen.

The actor hopes to break into the music industry. He is currently in Los Angeles filming the thriller “Map To The Stars”, a movie being directed by David Cronenberg.
