For those of you who haven’t seen any of the clips of Snoop D.O. Double G narrating “Planet Earth”, those viral videos simple feature the BBC’s award winning animal documentary, with Snoop describing whats happening on screen.  It may not seem like much of a concept, but it is amazing to hear the Doggy Style rapper be naturally enthused about nature.  A petition sprung up to get Snoop to OFFICIALLY narrate a “Planet Earth” sequel, which was immediately swatted down by the BBC.  Since then, “Snoop Planet” has evolved, with smaller clips for Snoop to narrate.  Check out one of the funniest ones below.

Key & Peele: Sex With Black Guys.


Obsessed2Since Comedy Central’s ‘Key & Peele’ debuted, It’s been the next best thing since ‘The Chappelle Show’.  They’ve had quite a few skit’s that have pushed the envelope and created moments that people at either school or work come back the next morning with an itch to talk about.  One of their latest comedy triumphs is a sketch about white women discussing an interest in relations with black men, and the reactions of the men over-hearing them.  Much like anything that strikes comedy gold, there’s much truth in their observations.  Believe me, I’ve heard things like this said out loud in the past.  Check the sketch below.

Check out these stunning images of poster artwork for the Doctor’s latest adventures. For people who do not follow the show, Doctor Who is a British science-fiction television program produced by the BBC. The program depicts the adventures of the Doctor, a Time Lord—a time-travelling humanoid alien. He explores the universe in his TARDIS, a sentient time-travelling space ship. Its exterior appears as a blue British police box, which was a common sight in Britain in 1963 when the series first aired. Along with a succession of companions, the Doctor faces a variety of foes while working to save civilisations, help ordinary people, and right wrongs.

Any up-and-coming artist longs to get a shot at a feature with a major artist, and there aren’t too many people red-hot in the rap game like 2 Chainz.  In an interview with the BBC he explained exactly what it would take to get a feature from him, and why.  Check the method below.

Jay-Z Performs ‘Public Service Announcement’ At Carnegie Hall.


Amex has recently unveiled previously unseen footage of Jay Z performing his Black Album cut “Public Service Announcement (Interlude)” during his gig at Carnegie Hall back in February.  This further serves to whet apetites for his upcoming interactive concert at next weeks SXSW and, of course, for the UK based readers his ever approaching Watch The Throne tour. It has also recently been announced that the superstar will be headlining BBC Radio 1′s Hackney weekend.  Excited is an understatement.

Stupidity… The Movie.


Personally I love finding the meaning of things that people tend to skip over, the primary example being the meaning behind certain words.  Not too many people know that both “f*ck” and “sh*t” are acronyms for things people used to do every day, and over time developed into taboo words that you use excessively starting at the age of 10.  This documentary about “Stupidity”, tells us the history of the word “moron”, the difference between stupid, moron, smart, intelligent, genius and questions the regular practice of classifying peoples intelligence through standardized IQ tests.  Of course also our former president Bush is examined in this report.  A well educated guy who, nevertheless, acts in a completely dumb way.  If you have the time, check out the entire documentary below.

 

 

The Human Planet.


It shouldn’t be any kind of secret and that I get my nerd on pretty often, but I was suprised to know a few of my close comrades were just as excited as I was to watch the preview for a new BBC special titled ‘Human Planet’. The BBC and its affiliates are the same folks responsible for bringing the specials ‘Life’ and ‘Planet Earth’ to TV screens and DVD players all over the place. This mini series however doesn’t focus on the strange, unseen world of the animal kingdom, but it focuses on foreign cultues that are rarely seen, observed or documented, which makes the ads for ‘Human Planet’ extremely intriguing.

My BlackBerry Is Not Working!


They say all good comedy has a modicum of truth to it, and there’s no denying that the jargon that’s built up around technology is littered with opportunity for mockery, fun-poking, and general satire.  My sister and I are both huge fans of British comedy and this video sparked my interest quickly.  Leave it to two old pros from the UK, then, Harry Enfield and Ronnie Corbett, to summarily dispatch Apple, BlackBerry, Orange, Microsoft and everyone in between in one of the better tech-related sketches we’ve seen. See them do their thing after the break, but be warned: the video contains more than your recommended daily allowance of fruit puns.

The Drunken Monkeys.


As a known drinker, I’ve always been curious as to what makes certain people more susceptible to the “temptation” of liquor than others.  I found some possible answers in a very unlikely source.  I realized this add for liquor isn’t far from the truth, after seeing this BBC documentary on monkeys on the island of St. Kitts. Some of them have tendencies much like humans, which leads me to believe that certain actions may be genetic, not just general behavior.  Check the method below.
