A Mix Of Pride And Shame: Ken Burns The History Of “The West” To Life (Video)

The legendary documentary film producer Ken Burns brings us the real story of “The West” in eight parts for PBS America. Might be able to get to see this on-demand from your local cable provider. You can definitely see it on Netflix.

The series explores the region from the times of the earliest Native Americans to the 20th century. Monday’s episode, The People (to 1806), looks back to the emergence of a new world with the arrival of the first Europeans. On Tuesday, Empire upon the Trails (1806- 1848) tells the story of the Americans who headed west, following the fur trade into the mountains, fighting for self-determination in Texas or seeking a better life along the Oregon Trail. In Speck of the Future (1848-56) on Wednesday, the landscape changes dramatically with the discovery of gold in California. The Gold Rush brings the whole world to the West as prospectors scramble for a share, littering the hills with mining towns and creating the West’s first metropolis. But in the push to strike it rich, many are violently displaced. Conflict comes to the West in Thursday’s episode, Death Runs Riot (1856-68). In Utah, federal troops march against Mormon polygamy while along the Rio Grande oppressed Mexican Americans rebel. The war between North and South unleashes brute savagery in the West, leaving behind an army prepared for total war against the native peoples of the plains.

Centuries Ago, A “Witch Hunt” Was Not A Metaphor. It Was State-Sanctioned Murder (Documentary Trailer)

For all the things we can say about living in society today… at LEAST “witchcraft” is no longer a crime (and look above to see why the quote marks were necessary; lots of room for interpretation in those ‘laws’ that can get someone f*ck*d UP)! Of course, there is still enough frivolous prosecution and unfair persecution today to go around twice.

Historian Suzannah Lipscomb investigates the witch hunts that plagued Britain in the 17th century, examining common myths about their origin.
– Netflix

A Channel 5 two-part documentary that you can catch on Netflix (no chill).

The Smithsonian Channel Opens Its “Mystery Files” On Italian Innovator And Icon Leonardo da Vinci (Trailer)

More often than not, when someone makes reference to someone being a “renaissance man” they are talking about (or giving a nod to) Leonardo da Vinci. That is, someone who is and/or does ‘everything’ and is ideal to have for most every occasion. The leader of the Italian Renaissance, Leonardo, painted iconic works like the “Mona Lisa” and “The Last Supper,” sketched designs for early versions of the bicycle, helicopter, and other flying machines… sculptor, architect, military engineer and more. And his work and reputation have survived throughout the centuries. Dude was all that. BUUUUT, there’s a documentary available from The Smithsonian Channel (and on Netflix) that sheds more light on the man that may well dim the lights on his myth and legend. Wow. File this under ‘keep it real.’

Click on the pic above or the link below to check out the trailer (and full documentary, if you desire) for “Mystery Files: Leonardo da Vinci.”

Learn About Humanity’s Journey Out Of Africa And Into The Wider World In The “Great Human Odyssey” (Trailer)

Humanity started in Africa. We’re on the same page with that, right. Science!

But let’s go deeper in depth with NOVA’s and PBS’ help. How did ancient humans make their ways to all corners of the Earth; not only surviving Africa but leaving it and coming to thrive as distant disparate populations in the various regions in which they finally settled? HUGE question. And there are more that will be addressed in the “Great Human Odyssey” documentary (available on PBS, and now on Netflix).

Keegan-Michael Key And Cobie Smulders Are “Friends From College” Trying to Get Each Other Through Mid-Life (Trailer)

Bwaaaahahaaa! It’s like you turn Key & Peele loose, off the censored Comedy Central airwaves and onto the big screen… and they LOSE THEIR MINDS in the best ways. The stuff Keegan-Michael Key says and does brings forth a hilarity that borders on the edge of insanity (like what Keegan would give to get the drug store dude to open back up at the end of the trailer above). Check out the teaser for this Netflix series above.

Bill Nye Speaks On His Mission To ‘Save The World’ And On How Political Science Has Become (Video)

The hero we have been waiting for to return… It’s Bill Nye The Science Guy! He’s here to “Save The World” with not only the spread of scientific interest & knowledge, but apparently promoting a point of view. Science is political. You actually know that. Think about great socio-political battles we have fought. They have been over questions that put politics smack dab in the middle of what should be apolitical pursuits: When does life begin (e.g. pro life vs. pro choice)? Are slaves really people or something ‘less than’ that should be owned or controlled (e.g. pre- through post civil war, the battle for civil rights in courtrooms and on congressional floors)? And there is a ‘less uncomfortable’ (but no less important) battle that Bill mentions here… Is Climate Change (e.g. Global Warming) a man-made phenomena that we can/must stop?

As Flavor Flav would say, “We got some nonbelievers out there!” So the fight is on. Save us Science Guy… with KNOWLEDGE… not politics!

The Science Guy sits down with Bridget Carey to talk about his new Netflix show and the three biggest problems the world is facing.
– CNET

Great interview! Take away two things: (1) Most important, Bill is back, now on Netflix, AND (2) Bridget Carey is hella cute…had to be said.

Robert Glasper – “The Cross” feat. Lianne La Havas x Common

If Jesus died on the cross why I gotta carry it?
Common

Wow. The mark of good instrumentation… the levels to which it pushes accompanying vocalization. Like, just LISTEN to what that music Robert Glasper put down for “The Cross” pulls out of Lianne La Havas and Common. The singing. The lyrics!

Might have to watch that “Burning Sands” this weekend just because of this.

This song was written by Robert Glasper and Karriem Riggins, and Common for the film “Burning Sands” on Netflix now!

Naked (Netflix Trailer)

Mm mm mm. Why not have sexy azz Regina Hall waking up in the raw on the elevator though… because equal rights!! We’re here for you, Regina. WE support your right to bare(ness), even if Hollywood doesn’t (haaaa)! For seriously though, this trailer is like that Bill Murray “Groundhog’s Day” movie mashed into everyone’s worst wake up at school in your draws (or less) nightmare. What is it with that dream anyway?

When Rob Anderson (Marlon Wayans), a charming man-child, arrives in Charleston the night before he is about to marry the woman of every man’s dreams, Megan Swope (Regina Hall), he hasn’t written his vows, learned the steps for the first dance, or even remembered to bring the ring. Instead of taking care of his responsibilities, Rob goes out for a night on the town with his best man (Jonathan Todd Jackson). Then something unexpected happens… Rob wakes up naked in an elevator with no idea how he got there. When the elevator doors open Rob is shocked to find that it’s late in the morning and he has only one hour to get to the church or miss his own wedding. He tries desperately to get to the chapel, streaking through a city marathon, stealing clothes, avoiding capture by local police, a near death confrontation with a vicious motorcycle gang, and many other obstacles only to find himself waking up in the elevator again and again. Some unknown force has conspired to make Rob live this hour repeatedly until he finally grows up and becomes the man that his amazing fiancée deserves to marry. On Netflix August 11.

War Machine (Netflix Teaser Trailer)

Dude. Getting that Netflix account (or ‘borrowing’ that sub from someone who loves you) is gonna be the MOVE! Box office beast Will Smith is already doing something for the bingers. Now, monster movie star Brad Pitt with this “War Machine” trailer comes to Netflix?

An absurdist war story for our times, writer-director David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) recreates a U.S. General’s roller-coaster rise and fall as part reality, part savage parody – raising the specter of just where the line between them lies today. His is an exploration of a born leader’s ultra-confident march right into the dark heart of folly. At the story’s core is Brad Pitt’s sly take on a successful, charismatic four-star general who leapt in like a rock star to command NATO forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken down by a journalist’s no-holds-barred exposé.
– Netflix US & Canada

Ha! Feels like some “Ocean’s Eleven” meets “Inglorious Bastards” energy in the trailer above. Just replace any goriness with snarkiness and you’ll get it. Better yet, play the trailer and wait for May like the rest of us.
