Race Bait

What if the biased stance, the pointed rhetoric, and the loaded questions were all focused on the white side of the spectrum?

Chris Hayes is a national treasure for this.



Props go to my buddy GG for bringing this clip to my attention by posting it on Facebook. The comment immediately after mine in the resulting thread was an older white woman of some familiarity with GG (who is also white). Her response? "People do crazy thing when in a crowd..regardless of their skin color".

I think that's the first time that someone missing the point has simultaneously served to highlight the point.

Throwback Thursday: "Tru Master" — Pete Rock ft. Inspectah Deck & Kurupt

For this '98 track off Soul Survivor, his first solo studio album, Pete Rock teamed up with two of the most brilliant—but least heralded—emcees in the game. Deck's star often got outshined by his Wu brethren, and Kurupt was perpetually deep in Snoop and Dre's shadows. But each of these two men were well equipped to spit straight fire, and took full advantage of the opportunity that Pete Rock handed to them.

Too Real

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go back in time and talk to your former self? Well, if technology ever gives you the chance to do it...maybe you shouldn't.

Monday Kickstart: Spit That Hot Fiyah

WHY'S SHIA GOT MORE FLOW THAN IGGY, THO?



When Mondays strike, you always know you can count on Shia doing some Shia shit. You may not know exactly what that Shia shit will be, but you know it will be straight Shia. Coincidentally, I'm beginning to think "Shia" is Hebrew for "cray."

You can also count on Candace Rae making your jaw drop:


Let's go.

Throwback Thursday: "Shook Ones" — Mobb Deep

If you don't know this one, there's no hope for you youngin'. "You're all up in the game and don't deserve to be a player."

Animal Behavior

I can't stop watching this. This guy's a straight g with it. That transition back to normal conversation is priceless.

Mother Nature's a Dick

If you're going to film yourself doing just about anything on the beach, you'd better keep one eye on the shoreline. Mother Nature ain't to be trusted.


When the Fur Flies...

From the Daily Mail:
This incredible video captures the moment a sleeping cat woke up to a nightmare after discovering it was flying through the air thousands of feet from the ground.

The black and white moggy had crawled into the wing of an open-cockpit glider - thinking it would be an ideal place for a nap.

But after two people took the aircraft out for a flying session, the cat can be seen crawling along the surface of the wing before emerging in the cockpit in terrified confusion.


Thankfully, the cat made it home safe. The look on its face when he first emerges in the cockpit, though, is fantastic.

Monday Kickstart: Faster Than You Think

*sigh* It's a good thing she's pretty.



When I saw the description of this video, I was certain this girl would be less than 10 years old. Who older than that can't answer that question? [...when they're sober, that is. Catch me late on a Saturday of day drinking and I might stumble a little too.] This somehow feels worse than the girl who couldn't figure out how far you'd go in an hour if you're traveling 60 mph. At least that chick tried to apply some logic, as hilariously flawed as said logic might have been. I feel like "60 mph girl" would ruin the curve for "80 mph girl."

Speaking of curves, this week's inspiration is Ms. Anastasiya Kvitko, whose beauty and figure render all math problems irrelevant:



привет там, красивая. Let's go.

Because Science!

I'm sure that you, like me, have often sat around your home thinking, "What would it look like if I shot gummy bears out of a giant air cannon at a beautiful woman's butt and filmed it all at 5000 frames per second?"

I mean, quite frankly this is one of the greater mysteries of the modern world. Thankfully, we now have empirical evidence to study. And study. And study. And study some more...

Throwback Thursday: "1999" — Common ft. Talib Kweli & Sadat X

This track's so good. I can't believe I'd forgotten about it before finding it again last night. These words just need to be played. And this beat...oh my gawd.

Darwin Was Right

Anyone harassing a horse—from behind, no less—is just wasting good oxygen that could be going to the more deserving living things on this planet.



Guess he didn't want that hat...?

Monday Kickstart: It's All in the Wrist

If this doesn't perfectly sum up Mondays...



I guess Frisbees are new in Bosnia. Of course, that would make the Frisbee the only "new" thing in this video. I can't tell if this was shot 20 years ago, or if that's just how Bosnia looks. The pumping Euro-techno beat isn't helping, either.

Maybe that wasn't actually music, though. Maybe that loud thumping was just my blood pressure, thanks to this week's inspiration, Ms. Arianna Varella:


Let's go.

Monday Kickstart: Do You Really Wanna Know?

Would you rather tell your ex what your friends and family thought of him/her, or down a shot of whiskey? Well...



I love the guys who pretend to not know what a body shot is. C'mon, man, she already broke up with you.

Maybe I'm just an honest person by nature...and maybe that's why I have so many of the exes I have. *ahem* Regardless, I don't think I'd have much trouble answering these questions. I'm not friends with any of my exes, though; that would definitely ramp up the awkwardness. And do I get to pick which ex I sit down with? I mean, otherwise you could end up with just a video of a lot of Spanish cursing.

Moving on... I wonder how many of Aja Dang's exes would be able to sit across a table without drinking shots...


...Lots of shots. I mean, imagine realizing you let that get away? Let's go.
