How To Survive A Zombie Apocalypse (Video)

Think AMC’s The Walking Dead is a joke, man?! It’s actually fiction; not a whole lot of funny. Many might say prospect of a zombie apocalypse is scary. And some of them would say… the threat of it is REAL… at least real enough to go to a training camp to learn the basic survival skills of living with all kinds of undead walking around.

‘The Daily Show’ Host Trevor Noah Makes Fun Of His Very Serious Emergency Room Experience (Video)

So, the host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, had to have an emergency appendectomy just days ago. See his comical recount of what was a f#cked up emergency room experience. Besides the ‘waiting room’ shot, this was my fav quip from the above clip: Asked for more info to fill out endless forms while in excruciating (near blackout) pain, Trevor responds,

“What more information do you need, other than the fact that I’m dying?”

Ever a political hot topic in the U.S., many always bring up the fact the MANY nations abroad provide free/better healthcare than America’s. But you may have wondered if folks from other countries say U.S. healthcare is better somehow. Well, let’s hear from someone who has now experienced both.

Play the clip. Laugh through the pain. Welcome back, Noah. Get better soon.

‘Chi Raq’ Documentary Highlights Chicago Death Tolls That Mirror Iraq & Double That Of Afghanistan (Video)

“Chi Raq” is a compelling video portrait of life in South and West Chicago by London filmmaker Will Robson-Scott. Shout out to my homie Hustle Simmons who appears in the mini-documentary/video portrait to speak on his own personal loss & offered some positive words about the escalating problem in Chicago.

“For the past decade, Chicago has been enduring a violence epidemic, with a death toll in the thousands and casualties mirroring the losses experienced by the US Army in Iraq war over the same period. Allowing its subjects to take center stage and tell their stories in their own words, Robson-Scottʼs film is unflinchingly honest in its depiction of life on the streets of one of the most dangerous cities in America.”

50 Cent Orders Investigation Into the Death of Chris Lighty (Video)

Without question, the loss of Violator founder and CEO Chris Lighty left us in the Hip-Hop world saddened… stunned… and puzzled. What could have led Chris to commit suicide. It has been echoed by several long-time associates that it just did not seem likely that Chris would take his own life. Well, at the request of Chris’ mom, 50 Cent has brought his star power and resources to bare; hiring a high-powered legal team to drive an investigation on the particulars of this tragic case. This should bring truth to light… and answers to questions. Linked after the jump, the article by Fox 5’s (NYC) Lisa Evers highlights some points for concern: Chris was NOT likely suffering financially (often a driver for suicidal depression); and for someone still in his 30s, he was VERY well prepared in end-of-life matters. One such preparation the article notes was that, save a relatively modest set-aside for his kids, Chris’ entire fortune would pass to his widow – with whom he was said to have argued with just before his demise. Moreover, autopsy results have not shown anything… other than the cause of death was a gunshot wound. Other facts of the are still being gathered. As such, maybe 50’s legal team can, at least, keep the push for answers on.
