funny women

Catching up on  Jezebel last night the very well written ‘How to Make  A Rape Joke’ included an appropriate example from the rather funny Ever Mainard , who then led me on a very enjoyable youtube sidebar trail of female comedians old and new,  thought id share the ones that tickled me most :) (more…)

a vague memory of last night

Before the vodka kicked in we were watching videos on Youtube i recall this was one of the first…its a giant game of snake that a college student created for his project by rewiring the lights in this block of flats…im guessin he got an A?

Been a while since i checked in on Japanese artist Tadaomi Shibuyas‘ myspace site, he’s got up loads new works up including some really cool videos for a few Japanese artists this is my favourite musically and visually. Nice one Mr Shibuya ;)

Blu Mar Ten – If i could tell you

I dont know why all of a sudden im obsessed by this mans music but i am. Really like his choice of film footage for his youtube videos, brilliant break from the norm of dnb track visuals. This song for the day in particular is haunting me at the moment, im tryin to place the vocal sample ‘I will not ever try to hurt you‘, where the hell is that from its so familiar and such a beautiful melody. Im daydreaming to this one, hope you do to…

Hip Hop Video Classic’s

Am up late watchin MTV Base Takeover of all things…its like Yo MTV Raps without the cool ID’s in between the videos.
Their playing some pretty dope tracks, alot of 90′s classic. I even got on down with my bad self to Arrested Development…the two arm African skank…you know the one!

Anyways its crazy the stuff they got away with back in the day in terms of visuals…theres no way you could make a video nowadays with full body bags, desert eagles, working bongs or whatever else you might fancy, that actually would get played on the popular music channels!

Mostly this is due to heavy censorship, thanks to all us hip hop fans running round selling crack, gang banging and gatting people. We spoiled it for todays street poets who now have to bargin with video commissioners and music execs on if they can be smoking on camera, let alone brandish a steel baseball bat during every chorus in a ominous beat down shot…however it didn’t mean a thing but a chicken wing back in the day.
