Blank On Blank: Nina Simone 1968 Interview (Video)

Back in the day renowned Italian national radio on-air personality Lilian Terry recorded a favorite, long-sought celeb interview – of Nina Simone – by the skin of her teeth. See, Nina being Nina… She did not make a habit of talking to White people. And Lillian almost missed out, because she had the complexion for rejection. However, once Nina found out Lillian was ‘from Egypt’ though (born in Cairo to a father from Malta and a mother from Italy), the two were formally introduced and found themselves talking about Nefertitti and the Pharoahs in no time. Only days later Lilian went to Nina’s house in Mt. Vernon, New York, and recorded this conversation.

Tom Clancy’s “Ghost Recon Wildlands” Trailer: Open World Of The Wildlands (Video)

The once beautiful South American country of Bolivia is now a perilous narco-state; its citizenry suject to lawlessness, fear, and rampant violence every day. But you, Ghost Recon, are going in to change that… armed with your wits, any arms you can get your hands on, and absolutely no support or acknowledgement of your mission. So, are you in?

You may say no in real life, but in the realistic Wildlands, you would definitely consider it. And after you play this latest “Ghost Recon” trailer, you will probably be ready to join up (or at least play the game)!

Damn. That’s a strong lineup. AND L-L-LOOK! It’s StaHHr! She’s ’bout to snap on a track again! That alone was occasion enough for me to take a look-see (and listen).

Your Plane Might Get Struck By Lightning! It Happens More Often Than You Think (Video)

Welcome back to the work-week, Americans. Did you enjoy the holiday? Did you travel…by airplane? If you did, what are the chances it got struck by lightning? Probably a lot higher than you think! Peep the science.

Although the idea of your next flight being struck by lightning may be terrifying, it’s actually pretty common. Every airplane is stuck by lightning about once a year. The lights may flicker, but thanks to some smart engineering, the danger is low.

Science: Why Don’t Ants Get Stuck In Traffic? (Video)

More smart programming produced by PBS Digital Studios. Brilliant insights in this vid on what ants have to teach us about building efficient traffic networks. Such simple solutions, but many seem impossible. Because they are? NO.

Because…us!

Blank On Blank: Stevie Wonder 2005 Interview (Video)

Incredible interview of the legend, Stevie Wonder, by British journalist Barney Hoskyns. The audio is good enough, but you know PBS Digital had to juice it up with animation in the best way. It is short but impactful nonetheless, esp. with Wonder talking about his first brush with racism.

“I think I discovered, you know, the whole thing of color when I went down South once, when my grandmother passed away,” the musician says in the video. “There were some kids, White kids that lived nearby or whatever, [that said], ‘Hey, n!gger!”

Wow.

What Happens After A Bullet Is Fired Straight Up (Video)

Straight up. The question of whether or not firing bullets into the air is harmless is one worth answering, especially with the occasions we have for revelers to pop that kind of firework on holidays. Well, most of us did not actually need a video to tell us but… if you are or aren’t sure, watch.

By the way, on this whole gun rights and gun control discussion: RESPONSIBILITY is part of it. Obey our laws! Beyond that, discussion of what criminals may or may not do is noise. For those who have the guns lawfully, though, responsibility is a MUST! Buy and use fireworks properly (or go to a ‘show’) if you just want to hear loud pop-pop-pop. Better yet, take in a movie. Rent “Heat” and watch Deniro and Pacino ‘n’em let them thangs go! Nobody gets hurt. But if you point and shoot in the air, chances are someone could.

(That music though. Whyyyyy?)

Floyd Norman: An Animated Life (Trailer)

An intimate journey through the celebrated life and career of the ‘Forrest Gump’ of the animation industry: Disney legend Floyd Norman. Hired as the first African-American at Disney in 1956, Floyd worked on such classics as SLEEPING BEAUTY and 101 DALMATIANS before being handpicked by Walt Disney to join the story team on THE JUNGLE BOOK. After Walt Disney’s death in 1966, Norman left Disney to found Vignette Films, where he developed the original FAT ALBERT TV special and produced segments for SESAME STREET. He would later work at Hanna-Barbera on many classic cartoons, including SCOOBY DOO. After Hanna-Barbera, Floyd’s talents took him to Pixar to work on TOY STORY 2 and MONSTERS INC. On Mr. Norman’s 65th birthday in 2000, Disney HR forced Floyd to retire. Refusing to leave his “home,” Floyd has “hijacked” a cubicle at Disney Publishing, unpaid, for the past 16 years, picking up freelance work when he can. At 81 he continues to have an impact as both an artist and a mentor. Mr. Norman plans to “die at the drawing board.”

(Still hella cool.)
