Daft Punk | Random Access Memories | The Collaborators: Nile Rodgers

I’m not gonna lie. The first time I heard about Daft Punk was ==>

Couple random thoughts real quick –

1. I don’t remember watching this video at all. Not in like a hating on the video cause it’s fire, but more in a what the fuck why can’t I remember watching this video?
2. Cassie.
3. Think about all the random shit you’ve done in your life that you’ve forgotten. If you’ve forgotten it and it’s not in your current memory, and blah blah … Space & Time continuum, did it really happen? #FAKEDEEP

You remember this shit?

THIS VIDEO IS EASILY TOP 10 VIDEOS I’VE EVER WATCHED.

First time I saw this. I was like HOLY SHITTTTT what a sample! This was when Kanye’s music was the soundtrack to my life. Takes me back to my dorm room. Mookin haze and playing Halo 3. Getting bodied and and skipping class. Running around NYC with no worries. I remember seeing this and just being so impressed first sonically and then I realized how crazy this fiend’s hand gestures were on point with the song.

Kanye West introduced me to Daft Punk. That’s what makes good hip-hop music awesome. Daft Punk have been off the grid for a minute. I can’t even do them justice so I’ll most likely find someone who can do a profile of them before their new album Random Access Memories is released. But before then watch this video to get a feel for the music. Nile Rodgers is an OG in the game and I think if music is something you are passionate about, you should watch this.

@oakshades

PS. The Creator’s Project is one of the coolest things in the world cause they understand culture and try to be creative catalysts. We will collaborate with them in some shape or form because that’s one of my life goals. FUCK WITH US.

PPS. Wave gotta do some more Sample Battles

#NP Dreams – @JColeNC

I was just walking one of the fiend pups that I pupsit this morning. It’s cold and rainy and shit. Dreams came on my iPod and it brought me right back to 2010. Dreams is one of my favorite joints Cole ever made. It appealed to the creepy 13 year old Eminem fan in me. I also was crushing hard on a curly haired Jewish chick that lived with my homegirl at the time. She had the lamest fucking boy friend who got to smash and motorboat her amazing tittays. If I had a motherfucking driver’s license and wasn’t deathly afraid of getting raped in prison, maybe I would … NO I WOULDN’T HAVE CAUSE IT’S JUST A SONG. PLEASE DO NOT KILL ANYONE YOU FUCKING FIENDS.

@oakshades

PS. Do ya’ll understand how crazy it is that Cole wrote this song, then fast forward three years continued the story of this chick in his new smash hit single with Miguel and then paired the new song with a visual that depicted the story of Dreams?

That’s some deep shit yo.

PPS. MTV Interview Bout Dreams/Power Trip

Shit White People Do: Light Wakeboarding

I just wanna know what kinda mook these fiends were mooking when they thought of this. And how dope is Red Bull? Came outta nowhere in the beverage industry, fucked up the caffeine game and have consistently used tweaked out shit like … LIGHT WAKEBOARDING to remain as a cool brand. This is another case study I plan on teaching in 20 years when I’m an adjunct professor at NYU.

Ants Are Mad Smart Yo

redwoodantmounds

Ants with the world’s worst taste in real estate seem to sense earthquakes before they strike, according to research presented today (April 11) at the European Geosciences Union annual meeting in Vienna.
Active faults, fractures where the Earth violently ruptures in earthquakes, are the preferred housing site for red wood ants in Germany. Researcher Gabriele Berberich of the University Duisburg-Essen in Germany has counted more than 15,000 red wood ant mounds lined up along Germany’s faults, like candy drops on a conveyor belt.

For three years, Berberich and her colleagues tracked the ants 24-7 with video cameras, using special software to catalog behavioral changes. There were 10 earthquakes between magnitude 2.0 and 3.2 during the study period, 2009 to 2012, and many smaller temblors. The ants only changed behavior for quakes larger than magnitude 2.0, which also happens to be the smallest quakes that humans can feel.
During the day, ants busily went about their daily activity, and at night the colony rested inside the mound, mirroring human diurnal patterns, Berberich said at a news conference today. But before an earthquake, the ants were awake throughout the night, outside their mound, vulnerable to predators, the researchers found. Normal ant behavior didn’t resume until a day after the earthquake, Berberich said.
So how do ants know an earthquake is coming? Berberich suspects the insects pick up changing gas emissions or local shifts in the Earth’s magnetic field.

“Red wood ants have chemoreceptors for carbon dioxide gradients and magnetoreceptors for electromagnetic fields,” she said. “We’re not sure why or how they react to the possible stimuli, but we’re planning on going to a more tectonically active region and see if ants react to larger earthquakes,” Berberich added.

When I was 14 my biology teacher told us he could predict where Earthquakes would hit. Nigga was wrong as shit. He had no way of predicting this. Fast forward to this morning when I read this shit and it turns out red ants can predict Earthquakes? I don’t know what this means, and I don’t know if this shit interests you fiends but I think Ants are creepy as shit but equally as fascinating. Like peep game about Aspartame. We’ve all had a Diet Coke or a Sweet N Low before. That shit is made with Aspartame.

smart-ants

So ants will look out for eachother and tell other fiend ants not to grub on Aspartame but Humans make this shit and advertise it as healthy. I’m bout to cop an ant army. They finna protect me from Aspartame and Earthquakes.
