One 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.
Ever wondered what happens when a group of guys get together and decide to read books? Well the new web series The Book Club shows us what happens if you take four guys and bring them together to discuss “assigned” reading.
From the creator of the pop culture blog You Offend Me You Offend My Family (YOMYOMF), Justin Lin (Executive Producer for Fast & Furious franchise) brings us this hilarious new web series about bros reading books. But it’s more than just a bunch of guys reading books. The show has great moments of laughter, classic “bro” literature (no chick-lit in this book club,) and it even has ninjas. Yes, a show with ninjas.
The Book Club is a show starring: Danny Pudi (Community),Parvesh Cheena (Outsourced), Thomas Fowler (2 Broke Girls), and Chris Marrs (Hot In Cleveland). It’s a great cast and I’m glad to see Danny Pudi aka Abed from Community branching outside of Community and doing something new. Of course, I still love him on that show, but I do hope this The Book Club series gets a good following and doesn’t disappear anytime soon.
I started watching the first episode yesterday and I was immediately hooked! The comedic timing is perfect and it’s was super cool watching the guys fight ninjas. It all begins with this ancient relic that someone brings to the book club, and then out of nowhere these ninjas appear and start fighting the guys. All they wanted to do was read books, but I guess that isn’t going to happen…
So, if you’re looking for a funny mini web series to watch, then you should totally watch YOMYOMF’s new web show, The Book Club. These guys make book clubs look pretty badass!
One of the many reasons I watch Community, is because perhaps it reminds me of the few semesters I attended community college. There was always this unrelenting atmosphere of attempting to make community college “spirit-filled,” but majority of people just wanted to get their classes done and go home. There usually isn’t anything really exciting community college, which is due to the lack of football teams, parties, and a wide range of academic opportunities you typically find at a four-year college.
Yet, NBC’s Community still does a great job of reminding us that two-year colleges can still be a lot of fun, especially if you have Troy and Abed as your classmates. And on the latest episode, the crew relied on some inspiration from Law & Order to take the simple task of figuring out who smashed their potato, and going on this in-depth investigation that could have easily been an episode of Law & Order.
I really liked the episode, and I actually kept laughing at so many points. It was great! Usually Community has it’s hits and misses with me on a comedic level, but I was pleasantly pleased with the episode, which was titled “Basic Lupine Urology.”
Thanks to Hulu.com, you can watch the full episode below. If you like Community and/or Law & Order, then you’ll surely want to see the crew of Community hit a home-run with their spinoff of the classic crime series, Law & Order.

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 of the typical rappers by trying to be so swagged out and hardcore, while coming up with silly rhymes that still go hard.
I been listening to a lot of hip-hop lately even though a few months ago I declared a sabbatical from hip-hop. I can’t help it! I write for hiphopextra.com and I just started writing for another hip-hop magazine. For some reason I’m good at what I do when it comes to writing about the art of lyricism infused with catchy beats. I doubt writing about hip-hop will ever become a full time job once I graduate, it doesn’t pay the bills but it’s valuable experience and more accolades to stack on my resume. Once I’m out of school in Spring I plan on getting a job in the DMV writing for the government or a non-profit organization, some sort of job I can do that pays excellent and allows me to still enjoy my weekends and blogging.
Writing about music is something I love with a passion and I don’t plan on ever quitting. There are so many good artists out there that bring something fresh to the table, which is why I’m digging Childish Gambino. His music is legit! Check out the track for “Freaks and Geeks” and enjoy the dope visuals from Mr. Donald Glover, simply a black geek with swag who loves to hang out with his N-words. Haha I love it when he says that on the track, like seriously who says I’m hanging out with my N-words? LOL….too funny!
