When Holly Silva Richard, owner of C'est Bon Reception & Banquet Facility in St. Amant, Louisiana saw a contest on Facebook to 'Name Our Sex Column,' she hurriedly entered her suggestion. Silva and her husband, '...had a get-a-way to Virginia planned [and] wanted to take the Deluxe Over The Door Sex Swing (Grand Prize),' with them for a fun time.
The contest ran for nearly 6 weeks with Facebook fans of adult romance company, The L Bar (www.facebook.com/thelbar) chiming in to make their suggestions in hopes of winning. It was Silva's, "Things That Make You Go Ummm," that raised the eyebrows of The L Bar CEO and Romance Expert JP Dunbar. "All I kept thinking was, "Wow - folks out there would love this! I couldn't wait to get the column going."
'Things That Make You Go Ummm' will begin featuring romance topics and tips weekly starting May 30, 2013. If you have a question that you'd like answered or need ideas to keep your bedroom play spicy, drop us a line at email@example.com.

Its been a popular event rolling around town for the past few years. But like all great things, in order to grow, it has to evolve. To that point, The Baton Rouge Gallery's "Movies on the Lawn" series now adds, "Music" to its title.
This newest offering will be showcasing its usual classic films, but now local musicians will accent the films and entertain the crowds afterwards. The series begins May 25th with the film, "The Artist."
“This year, we’re opening our series with a silent film made in modern times,” says Jason Andreasen, the gallery’s executive director. “And we’re excited to be able to get it for this year. The Artist is a perfect fit for the gallery to kick of its 2013 Movies & Music on the Lawn series, because both the film and the series reinvigorate our love of silent film with unique presentation.
Local artists, Captain Green will accompany the film with an original score.”
Captain Green rocks out
The group was formed in 2010 and has been a favorite at festivals and local music venues, proclaiming its genre as “intergalactic space funk,” a high energy fusing of electric jazz and New Orleans style funk.
This will be Captain Green’s third year to perform at Movies & Music.
The series will continue with monthly events through September with five screenings: The General, starring Buster Keaton and featuring Righteous Buddha performing a new score on Saturday, June 29; The Black Pirate with music by The Breton Sound on Saturday, July 27; Nosferatu, with a score by England in 1819 on Friday, Aug. 30; and Clara Bow starring as the original “it girl” in It with music by bluegrass darlings Polly Pry on Friday, Sept. 27.
Movies will begin at sundown, and as always, visitors show up early with food and beverages, and blankets to spread on the ground. The $5 admission will include free popcorn.
“This series has been breathing new life into silent film for local audiences for 20 years,” Andreasen said.
Making the world safer with the funk!

Many high school kids dream of graduating and spending their lives hanging out, making music with friends and traveling the world. Flow Tribe is living that dream. The six friends, born and raised in New Orleans, are classmates from Brother Martin High School who see themselves as cultural ambassadors for the Big Easy.
Flow Tribe’s lead vocalist, K.C. O’Rorke, said the band is infused with the myriad sounds of the New Orleans music scene. “Our earliest musical memory was second line at a parade, hearing the bass drum boom,” O’Rorke said. “You’re raised in an environment where music is such a part of the culture that it permeates everything you do. That’s the big thing for us. We try to be cultural ambassadors for New Orleans. We should be getting some tourism kickbacks.”
The lineup of Flow Tribe is O’Rorke (lead vocals/trumpet), Mario Palmisano (guitar), Chad Penot (bass/vocals), Russel Olschner (drums), Bryan Santos (guitar, percussion) and John-Michael Early (harmonica/washboard/vocals).
The sextet officially settled on the name Flow Tribe in 2006. For seven years they have been a relentlessly touring band, blasting fans away with bluesy rock with a flare of funk and the occasional breeze of Havana air. They call it “backbone-cracking music.”
With three full-length albums in the bag, Flow Tribe is embarking upon a new journey with their latest EP, “Painkiller.” The official album release will be at the Maple Leaf Bar in New Orleans May 18.
The band will be stopping is Baton Rouge and touring on a festival-filled summer that includes New Orleans Food & Wine Experience, Riverfest in Arkansas, Bay Bridge Fest in Mississippi and Wakarusa in Arkansas.
“We’ve got to show Baton Rouge some love, because they’ve always supported us,” O’Rorke said, so Flow Tribe is doing a sneak peek of the album at the Chelsea’s show on the 17th.
