“Baby Man,” the Mad Caps

Director Ryen McPherson of Shoot to Kill (a Wendoh sister company) produces arresting videos for Las Vegas bands. Who can forget Dude City confronting bikers in a desert tavern in “Technology”? Or Candy Warpop battered by a sadistic birthday princess in “Smilefucker”? Or Deadhand blowing up the Magic Kingdom in “Places”? Add to that the image of twin pregnant blondes belly-bashing each other until one births a disco ball in blues-rock duo the Mad Caps’ “Baby Man.” Framed by a hilarious Masterpiece Theatre-esque host, the video is set in an abandoned warehouse. There, drummer Jon Real and singer/guitarist Ted Rader churn out a gutbucket ode to virile manhood as the siblings synchro-gyrate and grind. “Nothing short of despicable art,” the host concludes. Yes, the best kind.

Shania Twain Ain’t Horsing Around

“I was having too much fun. I just wanted to ride around the whole town,” Shania Twain said when she finally climbed down from the horse she rode in on. The black beauty was one of 40 horses corralled down Las Vegas Boulevard by nine wranglers for Twain’s official arrival ceremony on Nov. 14. Police officers, also on horseback, cordoned off the city’s main drag to kick off the country singer’s two-year residency Shania: Still the One at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
