There aren't enough 'pauses' on the planet to cover this.
This shit is gold. The homie Thrizz put me onto the first video (below) during a recent discussion about Arcade Fire. I decided to check out the rest of the videos from the Skills In Time folks and the shit is classic. I've been using them to prove to Canadians that myself and Notion aren't making up how us Aussies talk. All the stuff about shelfing, wristies, cunts and other assorted shenanigans are part of our culture, goddamnit. Go have yourself a giggle after the jump...
Even though I fucks with the skinnies, I'm lovin' the parodies of these shits. This joint right here is GOLD. Peep game.
This is some seriously creative shit. Watch it unfold...
OK. I cannot express how important it is for you guys to see this. It's been the core of my life the last 24 hours.
First up, watch the below news story:
NOW. This is quite possibly the greatest thing you'll witness in your life. I'm serious. Please watch it immediately.
Amazing eh? This tune has been in my head non-stop since me and Thrizz discovered it last night, after he showed me the original news story. I need the MP3 of this, they need to release it as a single and it needs to be number 1 all over the globe.
Ya boy Bangs is back with a new video, this one dedicated to social networking and innocent chatting with the shorties.
This continues on Bangs' classic music video steez, but sans green screens and a little bit less emphasis on the chains. However, the shorties are still uber present.
Watch the views; it's currently less than 10K and it went up yesterday...let's see how it goes.
Today there was so much shit going on that I thought it'd be simpler to wrap it all up in one special Hectic Friday post. First up, the decision on the recent Oscar Grant murder trial was made today. Long story short, a white policeman shot a young black man point blank in front of a crowd at an Oakland BART station, and the cop got off on a couple years for 'involuntary manslaughter'. This case had serious race overtones, hence the uproar.
The worst part was that it happened on the same day as the Lebron announcement (see below) so half my Twitter feed was about a cop getting off for murdering a human, and the other was about an athlete deciding where to earn his billionth dollar.
Oscar Grant murder/verdict
And this Lebron shit has been wild. I'm not even really a huge sports fan but it was all over Twitter today so I couldn't avoid it.
My two cents: Players leave teams and get traded EVERY FUCKING YEAR. Yeah, the Cavs lost Lebron, but so what? Shit happens. Mike retired, too. Get over it. Good on him.
That said, majority owner Dan Gilbert wrote a scathing public letter about Lebron's decision, saying such sore loser bullshit like "I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WILL WIN AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP BEFORE THE SELF-TITLED FORMER 'KING' WINS ONE" and "You can take it to the bank." Wow. What a tool.
Majority owner Dan Gilbert's reaction
And to wrap up all this seriousness with some awesomeness, check out this video (if you haven't already seen it). Never seen a human so excited about a rainbow. And aside from the video hilarity, the description reads "It was rainbowing for at least an hour on January 8th 2010." I had no idea 'rainbowing' was an adjective.
I think I mentioned recently the fact that I'm not one for taking the piss of Hip Hop. Usually it's corny and stupid as fuck, and it shits me. However, this lil joint, courtesy of misscoca, is classic.
Dude is hilariously awesome. Apparently the boss heard him rapping and told him he could make videos to promote the company. And now he's a mini internet celebrity. Bangskis.

I've been copping a LOT of shit from the homies lately for my adoption of skinny jeans. It ain't really a reflection of fashion for me, it sorta came to be due to my burgeoning taste in music. But for some reason, it just ain't that accepted in Hip Hop.
Check out Cipha Sounds going shopping in Harlem for his own pair of skinny jeans. lol @ Snooki!
Normally any piss-take of Hip Hop makes me cringe. I fucking hate it, always have. I guess as a Caucasian dude from Australia, I kinda copped it growing up for my love of the culture (yup, I need a tissue), so I'm a tad sensitive to this type of shit.
The Rapping Weatherman, however, entertained the hell outta me. Dude spits a 2 minute verse over Young Money's 'Roger That' beat for the Austin, TX local Fox station. Can't front - it's corny yet clever, and it's clear they're taking the piss outta themselves too. Word to his 'posse' and getting the news anchors involved too. Gold.
I have no words...
