stormtrooper-greeting

You’d figure that we had enough of the twerking craze in 2013, especially with Miley Cyrus and her flat ass (seriously, she has no cakes) exploiting the dance.

Well, the viral twerkfest isn’t over. Now, Stormtroopers are joining in on the fun.

That’s right, Stormtroopers are twerking. Apparently, it’s officially a thing. This video could have easily bordered cheesy or cheap, But much to my surprise, it actually is really cool!b You haven’t seen twerking look so geeky, yet so fresh, until you watch this video of a group of Stormtroopers showing off their hip-hop moves.

Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) Forced-Fed, Shows Support For Hunger-Striking Guantanamo Detainees [VIDEO]

627

In a powerful demonstration, Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def) attempts to withstand force-feeding techniques that are currently used at Guantanamo.

This video might be difficult for some to watch, but I highly recommend you watch it. The demonstration proves to be too much for Yasiin and he cries out for them to stop inserting the tube.

Yasiin made the choice to stop the demonstration, but the detainees at Guantanamo don’t have a choice. Clearly, the treatment of the detainees and the living conditions are an inherent human rights issue, and Yasiin made a powerful move in bringing even more awareness to this issue.

Watch the video below…it’s quite emotional. When Yasiin breaks down in tears, I found myself shedding a few as well. Such a sad situation facing these Guantanamo detainees, who are currently on hunger-strike in attempt to fight for better living conditions.

Color Explosion: Holi in Slow-Motion

holi-4One of the most beautiful things about the world we live in is the diversity of cultures. Everyone has something they hold close to their heart, whether it be religion, a particular lifestyle, or even a creative talent, and it’s amazing when culture is caught on camera.

One of the most fascinating cultural celebrations I’ve seen caught on camera is Holi, the Hindu festival in celebration of spring and other sacred meanings. Holi takes places every Spring and this year’s festival already has taken place, but TheAwesomer.com posted a beautiful slow-motion video from a year ago that truly captures the beauty of the cultural celebration.

Watch the beautiful color explosion in slow-motion and get inspired to embrace your religion, your spirituality, your heritage, and whatever else you hold dear and near to your heart.

‘WHATEVEREST’ – The Inspiration Behind Todd Terje’s Dance Hit ‘Inspector Norse’ [15 Min Film]

Screen shot at 2013-03-26 2.02.03 PMLast year one of the biggest dance tunes to storm the electronic dance music (EDM) community was Norway-based producer Todd Terje’s infectious single, “Inspector Norse.” The song is arguably one of the best releases of 2012, and it’s a track that you can’t help but to dance to. I myself have been out dancing and a few DJs have played it; forcing me to dance like a maniac and jump up and down with a smile on my face. :)

“Inspector Norse” is a tune that inspires many to get up and dance to the good vibes, but apparently it was actually inspired by Marius Solem Johansen–who goes by the internet alias Inspector Norse. According to the short “documentary” by director Kristoffer Borgli, Todd Terje was inspired by this failed musician  Inspector Norse and his passion for dancing and making drugs out of household chemicals. Thus, the song was born!

The short film, WHATEVERESTwas well received by audiences and was even winner of Special Jury Award at AFI Fest 2012. But after careful research, it seems that this documentary is actually more along the lines of a mockumentary. Videos of Inspector Norse making drugs on Youtube and dancing never existed prior to this movie. Terje claims that he was inspired by the hundreds of videos of Inspector Norse, but there is actually only one video…which was upload around the same time this film was in the making.

So it appears it might all be clever creativity that is the driving force behind this story and the song, but one thing we do know is that whether merely fiction, fact or a combination of both (more so along the lines of fiction,) WHATEVEREST is still a beautiful short film. The film just gives us a glimpse into the sheer brilliance of Todd Terje and his witty sense of humor. He’s not just an amazing producer, but a creative guy with a vivid imagination of a guy named Inspector Norse who loves to dance. Do I approve? Yes, this gets my seal of approval. Great song, excellent film! :)

Watch the music video, which features clips from WHATEVEREST and then be sure to check out the full 15 minute “documentary.”

Harlem-Shake

The Harlem Shake: Don’t Fight The Craze, Embrace It [Videos] x [Original Video]

Harlem-ShakeThe Harlem Shake craze is getting strong…very strong. It might just be as popular as the “Shit Girls Say” video craze last year. Remember, everyone and their mama was making videos of “Shit [Insert Group of People] Say.” Well, with that phase dead (for now), the next big thing is getting a group of folks together and recreating the original Harlem Shake viral video.

Now, if you haven’t seen the video, then you truly must be anti-web culture or perhaps living under a rock. About a week ago, this guy on YouTube got together with his friends and made a viral video to Baauer’s hit song, “Harlem Shake.” Basically, he has a mask on and is dancing, while his buddies are calm and slightly bouncing. Then when the beat drops they all wild out and just dance like maniacs. It’s pretty awesome.

Yes, the original is awesome…but the viral videos of this internet meme are quite impressive! Everyone is gathering their friends and doing The Harlem Shake. Heck, I need to get my buddies together and film one just because!

Check out some of the videos below. T-Pain even put together a video. The Best Week Ever did one and even Skryim does the Harlem ShakeI’m telling y’all, this trend isn’t going to die anytime soon. I give it a lifespan of a month, maybe 2 months…or longer!
