Mick Jenkins – “Your Love” (Video)

So much creativity is coming out of Chicago right now.  Mick Jenkins is one of the artists that is making this statement true.  His latest project Wave[s] is out now and one of my favorite tracks is “Your Love”.  So I was pleased to see that he did a visual for it and he keeps the creativity going doing a 70’s tribute.  From the fashion to cars in the video it is a playful video with beautiful women who are not dancing around in thongs.  Just a fun loving video for a good feeling track.

Have a Dream in New Orleans, Fall in Love in Chicago

Shade Balls: Los Angeles Is Fighting The Drought… With Science (Video)

How about that? Engineering (e.g. applied science) solves another real life problem. The world is better when more and more smart people are around to think about and fix problems. Los Angeles (California, USA) has been in the grips of a deadly drought. And in the rest of The States, we have looked on helplessly. But I think they are onto something here.

For months, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power has been releasing the black plastic balls to float on the surface of the 175-acre Los Angeles Reservoir in a massive drought relief project. The final 20,000 went in on Monday, with some assistance from LA Mayor Eric Garcetti.

“Shade balls are a great example of how engineering meets common sense,” LADWP general manager Marcie Edwards said in Garcetti’s press release. “… As we make updates, we are mindful to be wise and practical with our investments. Shade balls are an affordable and effective way to comply with regulations, and help us continue to deliver the best drinking water to our customers.”

This is a good case of ‘black-balling’… deters water loss from evaporation, development of algae, wildlife contamination… PLUS, I cannot stop watching the cool clip of a big batch of shade balls being dumped into the LA Reservoir.

Jarv Dee – “Water” (Video)

The Seattle Hip Hop scene is one that is on the rise.  Jarv Dee reps for his city as a solo artist also a member of The Moor Gang group.  His new video titled “Water” has gritty visuals to match his rhymes.  Many images of police brutality and protests.  This is timely with all that is going on with the police in this country right now.  So if you think all that people do in Seattle is smoke weed and drink coffee then think again.  Although Starbucks is from Seattle and Weed is legal there too but you get my point!

How To Remotely Unlock Your Car Using Your Brain (Video)

Might be the coolest vid you watch today. Like a ‘Mr. Wizard’ (or ‘MythBusters’ for you young’ns) clip… on steroids! Sooo… Dr. Jean Grey (of the X-Men) has a head full of water. Well, so do you (sorta). And while starting a stalled stealth jet might be easy for the ‘mutant’ powers in her head, physicist Roger Bowley shows you how you can unlock a key using that powerful thing inside yours. He heard mention of this on BBC Television’s show Top Gear, but couldn’t believe it. Only one thing he could do.

The only way to find out if something is true is to do the damned experiment… disprove your prejudices.
Roger Bowley

Ain’t that something. Science meets social commentary. One clip; boiled down to one poignant statement. Told you it’d be cool. Watch, learn, and enjoy doing so.

Matt Damon Does Ice Bucket Challenge With Toilet Water! (Video)

Matt Damon was challenged to do the Ice Bucket thing… and he responded. Boyyy did he respond. Y’all do ice water. Matt does cold TOILET water. WHY????

“It posed kind of a problem for me, not only because there’s a drought here in California, but because I co-founded; and we envision the day when everybody has access to a clean drink of water — and there are about 800 million people in the world who don’t — and so dumping a clean bucket of water on my head seemed a little crazy.”

So…how about genuine toilet water? Ewww, right? Well, toilet water in the West is still cleaner than much water billions have to drink! Get it now? Great video showing Matt accepting the challenge…and challenging three friends to do the same. Clooney, Bono, Brady…it’s on you now!

Texans Will Soon Be Drinking Treated Waste Water. Who’s Thirsty? (Video)

How thirsty have you EVER been? Would you ever consider toilet water? What if it was guaranteed purified at a higher quality than the tap water you drink now? What if local authorities made it so that, very soon, treated waste water (including that reclaimed from sewer reservoirs) was pumped directly into your home’s water pipes? Businessweek reports that that is the deal in Wichita Falls (Texas, USA) now. The nightly news telecast clip above, from a while back, talks about another Texas town about to do the same thing. Okay, get all your ew’s out now… Done yet? Good. Drink up! It’ll be alright.

“You can take any water and turn it into drinking water. There is the technology out there to take out everything.”

Joseph Cotruvo, Washington water consultant

Now, I grew up drinking well water (still do, when I get home to Tuskegee) with a basic filter on the capture tank and another on the faucet… no treatment, chemicals or nothing… I have also had the “cleaner” bottled water. I suppose I could get used to something in between. I know I could if I lived in constant drought conditions and there was no other choice (especially once demand for bottled water drove its price higher than gas at the pump).

How about you?
