One thing I’ve always wanted to do is go all out adrenaline style and skydive in a bright red jumpsuit. But the fear of dying or my parachute failing has kept me from taking the leap, but perhaps a good place to start would be indoor skydiving. They don’t have a place here in DC, but I’m sure I can travel somewhere in the states and take a simulated leap.
But one thing I wouldn’t want to do is “Fall,” all the way to hell and that’s what The Presets are doing in their new music video.
Okay, not exactly a bunch of flames everywhere, but they are skydiving while the addicting single “Fall” plays during their fall.
Check it out, watch the video now!
Growing up I’ve always had this desire to see the world, but never quite knew how to make that mission a reality. And as I’m embarking on my 22nd birthday next week and still dealing with life after college, in the back of my mind (and in my heart) I long to see the world. Yes, I’ve seen most of the United States, but my glimpse of the world over the years has come from National Geographic (amongst other sources) and I thank them for their breathtaking 125 years of bringing travel into the homes and hearts of those of us who have yet to go abroad.
However, in 125 years of photojournalism and discovery throughout the globe, National Geographic has kept thousands of images a hidden secret up till now. In celebration of 125, National Geographic recently revealed a brand new Tumblr, FOUND, which is the new digital home for rare pictures dating back to the 1900s.
FOUND, which is set up in a minimalistic design that allows the pictures to speak to you as you scroll down the page, has some riveting pictures that capture the beauty life throughout the various eras.
From culture to technology and innovation, the pictures from some of Nat Geo’s best photographers are bound to inspire you to grab a camera. I know that it truly caught my attention and has spoken to my love of photography. Culture is a beautiful thing to experience, and documenting it is even better; it’s priceless.
What are you afraid of? Perhaps you’re like the little kid in Monsters Inc. who is terrified of the monster lurking in the closet. Or maybe your fear is walking at night by yourself, or being too close to the edge of a cliff.
Fears vary, but one thing that remains the same is the desire to ease the fear. You don’t want to linger in fear too long, because then it warps into panic. So calm your nerves, and try some Herbaria Calming Tea to get rid of those pesky fears, and those unwanted nightmares.
Well, I’m not sure how “calming” the tea is, but the innovative new commercial sure did sell me on the idea of “drowning your fears.” No, literally drown your fears. Serial killer or clown, watch it drown.
Now I’m not sure how’d you go about this, but apparently Sugarboy knows how it’s done. So let Sugarboy tell you a little ol’ story on how to “Bike To The Future.”
Now after watching this video, I think I should have everything I need to hook up my bike and take a ride to the future. But I’d hate to get stuck there. Oh, and I’d need to get a red vest and a shirt, apparently that’s the style requirement.
If there is one thing I wish I knew how to do, that thing would be vogueing. Man, I so wish I knew how to vogue! I mean, I think I could learn, but I’m always so in the moment and then I’m like “oh shoot, I should have watched YouTube and learned some basic vogue moves.” Well maybe this year, I will learn how to vogue. But there is so much to learn, but luckily Javier Ninja shows us how it’s done.
From the legendary House of Ninja, which is iconically associated with the legend Willi Ninja, the fabulous Javier Ninja is known for his insane vogueing skills. Simply type his name in YouTube and you’ll be amazed by what you see; perhaps fits of jealousy will settle in. Argh, I want to vogue! But in order to truly learn how to vogue, you have to understand what vogue is.
There is an art form behind vogue and their are so many different styles (new, old, waacking, etc) and Javier Ninja took some time out at Waackfest 2011 to discuss all things vogue. It’s a great Vogue 101 for those who love vogue culture or those who want to learn more. Either way, watch it! Javier Ninja is fabulous!
*UPDATED WITH RIGHT TRACK. HAD A MOMENT WHERE I FORGOT WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT* Been a long week!
When it comes to male vocals that know how to serenade a house beat to soulful unique perfection, I would be an idiot not to include Stee Downes in my list. First off, I been a huge fan of his voice ever since falling in love with the Lovebirds track “Want You in My Soul.” If you haven’t heard that song, then you need to go listen to it over and over again. Lovebirds are awesome.
So once you hear the voice of Stee Downes, you’ll understand why his new track with Mario Basanov — “Say What You Want” — is stuck in my head. From the first few pulsating moments you know that something good is right around the corner, and then Stee Downes comes in with this awesome chorus that has so much sass about people saying what they want about you, but you just don’t care.
The lyrics are simple, but the tone of Stee’s voice makes them even more powerful. And it is just such a good song that I can personally relate to. You know, the whole thing of trying to please someone and you do what you can, but they they say stupid stuff and you’re just like “dude, whatever, I don’t care.” Yeah, you know what I mean? Or maybe it’s just me…
I digress, so let’s just say that this song is awesome and you need to listen to it on repeat over and over again. Please, trust me on this, it’s a really really good song! I’ve heard it over and over in so many different podcasts and I just can’t get enough!
I first ran across Plastic Plates, I’d say about hmmm…a year ago? I’m always stumbling upon so much music that it becomes hard to keep up! But falling in love with the remixes of Plastic Plates (and originals) have served me well in the past year, and I’m truly loving the new Plastic Plates remix of The Presets “Promises.”
As usual, Plastic Plates always keeps the music fresh and the remixes are often really good, might I even say epic? It’s really hard to dislike the remix. And for some reason you don’t like, then oh well, that’s your loss! Alright, it’s not that serious. But at least check out the remix for “Promises.” Promise me
My favorite remix by Plastic Plates
