I’m a huge fan of Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover, you know the geeky black guy who used to write for 30 Rock and is an actor on Community. I love his personality and his swag is geeky fresh. I heard the remix of his track “Freaks and Geeks” a few days ago on DC Mumbo Sauce and I had to go check out the official video by Childish Gambino. The remix was nice with it, but the Childish Gambino track is hilarious and dope. He really has some skills on the mic and I love how he makes fun … Continue reading Freaks and Geeks
The first trailer for Dead Island, hands down the best trailer of 2011. A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post about a new zombie game coming out called Dead Island. The trailer above was the first introduction to the game and it made gamers anxious for information. We began asking questions concerning it’s release date, platforms, and what actual gameplay looked like. We weren’t give much information, especially considering that the game has been in works for 5 years and finally has a publisher. With E3 right around the corner and so many great new games coming out, … Continue reading Dead Island Finally Shows Us Some Gameplay!
While I was working out the other day, I heard this song on the Music Choice Dance/Electronica channel. I was working up a major sweat and had my eyes close while knocking out the last 5 minutes of my time on the bike. I was so exhausted, but this song came on and it caught my attention. I finished my work out and got off the bike, then danced around my room like a happy little girl (I do that a lot, just dancing around my room and singing…it’s fun!).The song is sung entirely in French and it has been … Continue reading I’m a Lil’ Rusty on My French, But Great Song!
SNL’s season finale was quite hilarious last night, especially since Justin Timberlake hosted. In my mind he was always an unspoken cast member, I mean he has been on SNL a lot! Justin is a very funny guy and last night’s digital short “Three Way” featuring Andy Samberg and Lady Gaga was hilarious! The matching multi-colored jumpsuits, the hairstyles, sunglasses, and the mustaches were such a 90s throwback. In my opinion it was almost as funny, maybe funnier, then the duos original skit “Dick in a Box”. I love how Justin Timberlake was singing and Andy Samberg had this deep … Continue reading SNL Digital Short: “3-Way” ft. Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga
Every now and then I’ll find myself tuning into MTV Jams and laughing at the same old videos being shown. Not so attractive guys rapping, video chicks dancing and all over them, and a beat that sounds like most mainstream stuff, except maybe more bass or the inclusion of some bells. While most of the music sounds the same and the videos are usually cliche, I saw this interesting video the other day. Instead of a bunch of girls shaking their butts and some average guy rapping, it was a video with Mexicans carrying watermelons and the bouncing words at … Continue reading Really?: Mexicans and Watermelons
So the other day I was reading Essence or Ebony, one of the two magazines, they both start with E and feature black women, so you can see how easy it is to confuse the two. Anyways, both had this section on hot music in 2011 and I read a small section featuring this interesting looking man named Toro Y Moi. He’s interesting looking, not really sexy in my eyes or cute, but to some he may be. His real name is Chazwick Bundick and he is Filipino and African-American. His music is part of the chillwave movement, a genre … Continue reading Chillwave:Toro Y Moi “Talamak”
