So, as I was perusing Youtube (as I do) I came across this bit of Christmas Music from the a cappella band Straight No Chaser. The first thing that caught my eye was that the track features Kristen Bell. That's right, that Kristen Bell, the one that most of us didn't realize could sing until she was in Disney's Frozen. Well, she joins the group as the female voice for this "modern" Christmas song. 1748
When you go to the movies a lot it's impossible to completely avoid seeing trailers. When you go a lot in the same time frame, you're bound to see the same trailers over and over again. In the past month or so, two trailers have had music that has caught my attention. The first is Birdman, which uses a slow version of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy". The 2nd is the preview for 50 Shades of Grey, which uses a slowed down version of Beyonce's "Crazy in Love". 3196
So, normally, I try not to rely on racial humor but this is such a funny combination of a premise and a realization of that premise that I had to share it. First, watch this clip from Aziz Ansari's special Buried Alive, which is available on Netflix: Now, watch this video from the youtube channel "Disturb Reality", where this dude shows some street magic tricks to some black audiences. I think this video took place in Compton. If that's the case, I give this dude a lot of credit for walking around with that much money out in the open. Some people may find this racist because of the title or the idea that it's a stereotype about a specific race. While this is a stereotype, I don't find the video to be particularly harmful or racist as no one is being belittled in the process. Bottom line, it's pretty funny.
The BYU acapella group "Vocal Point" performs this medley of songs from the Disney Broadway show and movie Newsies. If the singing wasn't hard enough the stage elaborate choreography using over 85 student performers from the university and then try to do everything in one shot.
