Official feelgood track for the season... (any season, really)

The Pacifics & Illmind - Black Book

The Pacifics are from Chi-Town. And on this EP "The Case", they team up with one of my currently favourite producers, Illmind.
Great flows, positive vibes. Enjoy.

Daily Show

One of my favourite shows on TV ever.
Jon Stewart and his team have a way of putting the finger exactly where it hurts. And on top of that, their "fake news show" is a lot less fake than what we get served as "the real news".

Too bad we mainland Europeans can't catch that on a daily basis, as the name suggests. ComedyCentral Germany (which I do get) is a dubbed piece of shit, plus it doesn't air The Daily Show at all. Our only chance to catch it on the telly is the weekly international edition on CNN, which is a sort of "best of the week" show. So I have to resort to stamp-sized screens on the net. But anyhow...

Here are two of the most recent pieces. One where they gauge the problems Canada is facing with Mexican immigrants (and the problems they bring seem to go so much without saying, the interviewees can't really say anything about those problems...).

And then Jon meets Bolivia's President Evo Morales. Morales is a former coca farmer and at the same time the first indigenous Bolivian to make it that far up the ladder. And what Morales has achieved in Bolivia makes the US look real shite. ;)

Bust My Ass

The documentary below was on BBC3 the other month and I've been telling everybody I know about this. It's a one-hour episode in a series called Mischief where the presenter Sam Delaney tests how far one can go and bend rules and conventions. And this one's called Bust My Ass, a highly political documentary with a nevertheless humourous approach to how the New Labour government in the UK has introduced a ton of laws that can easily make everybody a criminal.

You're wearing the wrong T-shirt? You're standing on the wrong corner while exercising your right to say your opinion? You dare to contradict the Lord High Chancellor during his speech, just cos you've had it up to here with his blatant lies? Then get ready to get your ass dragged out of the hall, down to the police station and your mugshot taken...

"Freedom of speech... just watch what you say."

You need to see this. It's both shocking and very entertaining. And it reveals the true faces of those people who take every opportunity to double-talk about democracy and freedom. And when you're not looking, they're taking away these rights from you, in the name of [insert current threat here]. Your country will be next.

I don't say that so easily, so best believe if I tell you this is one of the best things I've seen on TV for a long time.

Read up on the show here.

"What I gotta do to get in tha game, man??!!"

This is most likely the dopest skit in the universe.

It's off Prince Paul's "Politics of the Business" (what an album!). Not sure which of the voice is which, but it's Bimos and Ryan McKnite on this skit. Whatever his name, the guy doing all the pleading has an ill voice. This shit made me chuckle out loud yesterday when I was in town, surrounded by people.

My favourite line is definitely the last one about Cee-Lo and grits...

Enjoy, 9@home
