Really liking (and understanding, albeit from the complete opposite perspective…) this Rap Genius post on Rappers’ Obsession with Jewish Culture:

 *[Rick Ross] is the self-proclaimed “only fat nigga in the sauna with jews”

*Hov had a black Bar Mitzvah
And he’s also “That Martha Stewart that’s far from Jewish”

*Kanye isn’t worried about going to court over samples, because if he gets sued, his lawyers jews

*Nas defends the Jews and is disgusted by anti-semitism

*DOOM refers to himself as the black jew and Jay Electronica can also be known as Jay Elec-Chanukah

*The Black Eyed Peas use Hebrew expressions when they’re getting fucked up

*Shit, Shyne even decided to convert to Judaism

Quite the gem I found here, I won’t lie; it’s a video of Kanye from 2002 (we’re talking pre-College Dropout here) when he actually pulls up in his other other Benz for the very first time (and by “pull up” I mean “purchase for the first time”…not quite as cool but, nonetheless, quite dope) -  turns out it’s also the same day he recorded his verse for “Bounce,” the first song on which he ever rapped alongside Jay (as opposed to just producing the track), off The Blueprint 2:

 

 

“They say I’m crazy, but I’m about to go dumb again,
They ain’t seen me cause I pulled up in my other Benz,
Last week I was in my other other Benz…”

- Kanye West – “Otis” – Watch the Throne

 

Also:

“Tell ‘em I just want my racks, racks on racks on racks/
Maybachs on bachs on bachs on bachs on bachs

- Jay-Z & Kanye West – “Gotta Have It” – Watch the Throne

This shit is awesome if you like that brand of Onion-type humor and/or appreciate how easy it is to make fun of a sport that we Americans don’t understand:

…no homo though

Considering I haven’t posted on my blog in almost two months, this video has to be pretty awesome….and it is.  The funniest thing about my taking a blog-hiatus is that in my absence I’ve actually managed to see an increase in views from when I actually was posting…maybe that says something about my blogging abilities (or maybe it says something about the people reading it).  I’m not really sure. Regardless, I’ll take my 100,000+ hits* a day whichever way I can.

Moving on, the following video is called “SF to Paris in Two Minutes” and is a time-lapse video put together by someone who took a picture out the window about every two minutes for the entirety of the 11-hour flight from San Francisco to Paris.  The results are stunning and, without ruining it, just make sure you see what he captures around the 1:09 mark; it’s amazing:

 

Here’s a little bit more on how he made the video, from the photographer’s blog:

Shot a photo roughly every two miles between take-off in San Francisco and landing in Paris CDG to make this airplane time lapse. Made with a 5d2, a time-lapse controller, and a 16mm – 35mm, mixed with some iPhone shots. The music is a modified demo track “Gain” by DETUNE ltd. denkitribe on the Korg iMS20 iPad App. I’m pretty sure the track is copyrighted but it’s My First Synthesizer score so I’m hoping denkitribe is cool with it. Edits and pans in After Effects CS5 and iMovie.

The photos during take-off and landing are all computer models and totally rendered because I would never use an electronic device during times which the FAA prohibits them. I did get lucky and have a whole row to myself to setup the tripod and gear.

As an early Valentine’s Day present to you, my faithful eight readers, here is an important current event about a 12-year-old in California who recently found a candy heart that said “Nice Tits!”:

Nice Tits Heart

A 12-year-old girl says she found a naughty adult message on a piece of kids Valentine’s Day candy.

“I thought it was kinda shocking,” said Ciara Bush, “I was reading them and I brought it to my mom after I saw it.”

Her parents were stunned at what they saw.

“Nice Tits,” said Derrick Deanda, reading the message printed on the small piece of candy that referred to a woman’s chest.

Man, the last line of that article is just amazing.
