Matt Damon Mixes It Up, A Lot, In “Suburbicon” (Trailer)

Not all the way sure WTF this movie is gonna be (a “crime comedy” though?). But I know that Matt Damon is a solid movie bet (e.g. he does not make trash) and this trailer has me hooked! Plus the title: “Suburbicon.”

Yooooo! PLUS… mad people get f*cked the f*ck up in this flick quick (looking at the trailer)! YUSSSH!!! Hitting folks dead in the FACE, hitting screens October 27th!

George Clooney directs (he doesn’t make trash either, he and Damon have that “Oceans Eleven” franchise connection, too).

Kountry Wayne Loves The Kids, And He Went Viral And Got His Comedy Grind On To Keep His Fed (Video)

Y’all know Kountry Wayne, right? He started on the Facey-Space. And he was hustling before, but with EIGHT kids to feed… he had to REALLY be about getting his bag BIGGER (like $70K a month bigger, daayumm). More on Wayne after the jump.

Interesting the level of success at several ventures Kountry Wayne has had thus far (like never having a bad night in stand up comedy? Wow). Positive attitude, confidence, forward motion, working hard & smart for the right reasons. Good stuff.

There was a Guinness World Record for largest basketball lesson? Yup, and there is a new one now! Shout and respect to KD.

How Did Teenager Luke Thill Afford His Own Home? Well, He Started By Mowing Lawns (Video)

Not bad. Actually, kind of very cool! Think back to when I was 13… Was I doing anything remotely this bright? Nah. Not anywhere near. Hahaaa!

Now, you armchair conservationists and construction engineers should take note: (1) Luke’s built and “financed” this house on his own, (2) using LOTS of reclaimed/repurposed material, (3) for less than $1500, and (4) HE IS 13 YEARS OLD!

Meet Luke Thill, who at age twelve started working on his very own tiny house- one a mere 5′ by 10′, but with a sleep loft, transforming dining table, and even a small kitchenette. At age thirteen, using money from summer lawn-mowing jobs, and bartering (electrical wiring help in exchange for cleaning out a garage in one case), Iowa’s Thill completed his tiny house – one that he calls the practice precursor to a future “real” tiny house he plans on designing and eventually living in.

Shannon Sharpe Says, “Let Me Celebrate!” So Remix God Suede Dropped This Beat And It Was On (Video)

For some reason, this does not seem to have gone as viral as the “Evaculation” mash. But please believe that this “Milds & That Yak” clip flip is just as much a trip.

Remix God Suede went HARD and brought out them Sharpe BARZ for Shannon! Hahaaaaa!

Future Farm: Growing Food With No Soil And 95% Less Water (Video)

Vertical farms use less land, less water, less energy… and seem to be more efficient at producing food. Facts. But don’t take my word. The video says so, and I am sure the claims are verifiable if you want to go looking.

Me? I hope the authorities are looking into vertical farms. We have almost 7 billion people on this rock, and a lot are going malnourished and hungry.

The SquADD Debates The ‘Best Chocolate Bar’ Ever (Video)

The struggle is SO real in this All Def Digital clip… the struggle not to laugh until you cry! Every candy bar in this “discussion” is someone’s favorite, so that’s not up for debate. But just like any food review panel the squADD convenes, the joning/cracking/bagging/janking is EPIC. They just cannot resist going in on each other, can they?

Look. Make up your mind about which candy you like early, then enjoy the hilarity of the panelists giving each other the business! Bwaaahahaa!

Christopher Meloni Stars In SyFy’s Original “Happy!” Coming To Starting December 6th (Trailer)

Well, would you look at this… Elliot Christopher Meloni Stabler from “Law & Order: SVU” has got himself another gig. Looks like a cross between “Roger Rabit” and “Sin City” – like those two flicks had a fling and abandoned the baby. And it grew up with no home training, unhinged and macabre af! Probably helps the aura of this movie; the fact that Meloni also starred in the very graphic “Sin City” sequel.

But enough of the past. This trailer is for “Happy!” (based on New York Times best-selling author Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name). The series follows Nick Sax (played by Meloni) – an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hitman – who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit gone wrong, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named Happy (Patton Oswalt).

Apathy x O.C. – “Soviet Official” (Prod. By MoSS) [Video]

The killer lyrical combo Apathy & O.C. let another one off “Perestroika” though? Ha! Trying to act ‘fake surprised’… C’mon maaannn! When the music is this dope, the EASY way to promote is to keep leaking heat to the street, little by little. This leak is in visual format – “Soviet Official” (produced by MoSS).

Method Man Remembers & Praises The Excellence Of Prodigy (Video)

Meth says Prodigy was ‘Top 5’ in his day… PLUS he was a fan. Dopest and most real thing a colleague can say in almost any field of endeavor; but esp. so in Hip-Hop. One more RIP to Prodigy of Mobb Deep.

Yasiin Bey On Politics And Rap, And Weighs In On The Possibility Of Another Mayweather/McGregor Event, “No. HELL NO!” (Video)

Interesting point Yasiin made, speaking on Mayweather vs. McGregorConor just took a page out of Floyd’s book. We saw it. Barking it up, making it an event (rather than a fight, we saw it was NOT a fight).

Yasiin Bey Talks opens up on the Mayweather/McGregor fight, South Africa Travel Issues, his thoughts on Colin Kaepernick’s stance, tearing down of the US monuments, the current state of rap and more!
– HOT 97

Of course, esp. now that we are far removed from the ‘event,’ we can see what Yasiin sees: That FloydConor do not keep doing business (e.g. that was a one-time thing).

Eljay Williams Presents The Soundtrack For His “Pathways” Movie (Mixtape)

Dope movies ought to have dope sounds associated with them, right? Yes. Like this “Pathways” flick. Good movie. Confirmed because the squad saw and approved (you should if you have not already). Now, for the tunes. Listennnn!

All music on this soundtrack either appeared in the film Pathways (Sean’s Lament), has been used to promote the film or has been inspired by the film. These are some of my favorite songs from some of the dope artists I know and were part of my backdrop while writing the film. These artists’ words and sound inspired me and I am grateful that they lent their talents to my dream. Thank you all.
Eljay Williams

Peep the trailer after the jump.

Civil Rights Activist James Baldwin At Cambridge University Union In 1965… Speaking Like He Is With Us Today (Video)

Is 400 years of slavery building this country (and oppression thereafter) plus many wars of service not enough to justify our right to have some say in its running… without having to hear, “You can leave it if you don’t love it”… Well, isn’t it? Answer: YES! Moreover, we are not going to be ousted by anyone. We helped BUILD this place ‘they’ say we can ‘leave’ (like it isn’t OURS, too)! Sure, this declaration has an angry tone. So I will let activist/scholar James Baldwin say it. Words from so long ago. Could he have known they’d still be so applicable today?

Prior to the UK release of the Oscar-nominated documentary, I Am Not Your Negro, we take a look at a seminal speech by the film’s subject – writer, essayist, poet and civil rights activist James Baldwin. At Cambridge University Union in 1965, Baldwin debates whether the ‘American dream’ has been achieved at the expense of African-Americans.
– The Guardian

Yeah. And Baldwin even has something to say about the flag in this. So on point.
