I know what you are saying, who the hell is Childish Gambino? Well to start his real name is Donald Glover and he is an actor on the hit comedy series Community, and he is also a writer for the show 30 Rock, where he writes most of the material for Tracy Morgan’s character. He is also a comedian and a ton of other things but lets get back to the rapping thing. Childish Gambino is his rap alter ego and he has the rhyme talent that is refreshing to say the least. He is not your generic rapper, he has a hipster side to him mixed in with the swagger of the streets mixed with being a nerd who raps about girls, whiskey, and clothes. His music is the start of another movement, where he is making all the beats and doing the producing and mixing himself. Today he released his latest EP called just that, which included 5 brand new tracks available for FREE. Yes all his music is available for free which is even cooler. I promise if you download this CD and listen to the 5 songs you will understand why I believe he is going to be the next big thing in rap music. (Download the CD here)
Below are a few videos you will want to check out to get to know him a little bit more, and a few of my other favorite songs from his previous albums.
It has gotten national media coverage on the internet, radio, and television. A man with cancer announced on the popular website Reddit that he only had 51 hours to live. He went to the site, which acts as a huge forum of some sort, so take questions from anyone that wanted to ask him about dying and his life.
This is from Reddit:
On Tuesday I’ll finally end my battle with cancer thanks to Oregon’s Death with dignity act. As part of my preparations I’ve ended my pain medication and am trying to regain what little dignity and clarity I can.
Who I was doesn’t matter. I’m in pain, I’m tired and I’m finally being granted a small shred of respect. Feel free to AMA if you’re so inclined.
Other than answering our questions, what are you going to spend your last hours doing? And most of all, good luck, my friend. May you have the peace you deserve.
I’m going to live. This is as close to travel and meeting new people as I can get now. I’m sorry if that sounds dumb but this is my world tour
Seeing my nephew beat cancer. He had it as a child and the doctors at Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia cured it. 9 years and it never came back. A close second, the summer my dad and I saw a baseball game in every AL city.

Its no secret how off the deep end Charlie Sheen has been the last few weeks. Im not even hating on it though, I think this guy is the best right now because hes being real. Why should he apologize? Hes never been late for work, cost them any extra production costs, and not to mention his show is the highest rated on TV. Hes getting paid 2 million an episode, what the hell did everyone think he was doing with his money? Stacking his 401K plan hoping the studio matched at least 50%? Lets get real. This dude is living, and tiger blood is pumping though his veins. But what if Charlie’s half brother Emilio was the one who decided to go off the deep end? What if the great Gordon Bombay decided to expose to the world how much Hawks Blood hes been drinking to keep up his life style. Lets not forget, Gordon Bombays license plate did say JUSTWIN. Coincidence? Doubt it. WINNNNINGGGGG.

10. Blind Date Party
If I didn’t know this party took place in Paris, would I still think it was so scandalous? Um, yes. Held in early March at the Bar of the Plaza Athenee, this isn’t just your normal masquerade party. There is a special, ahem, “blind date room.”
In order to participate in the Blind Date Party, you must follow these guidelines:
1. Wearing a mask is strictly requested to participate.
2. Please do not accept the hostess Invitation if you are in a couple, or in a relationship, or don’t feel like it.
3. Please do not forget to be respectful with the other guests inside the blind date room.
4. Blind date time: 7 minutes.

There is a point in everyones life we they try to identify with a counter-culture, try to rebel against the norms and what society tries to make them. Whether it’s hating authority, loving bob marley, living reckless, a tiny tattoo or the way your dress. Everyone has some form of expression to take their shot at saying “I’m different!” “I do what I want!” There are few groups in the US that take this to limit, individuals do all the time, but not groups. The religious compounds maybe, but they live by a gods rules. The hippie communes of 60′s perhaps, but even they followed guidelines of love and a respect for nature. Or maybe the “off the grid” people living out the desert. Either way there is a fascination and near respect for those willing to truly rebel and show zero care for what others think of them. If there wasn’t we all wouldn’t have our own little acts of rebellion. A group of people like this is mesmerizing. The White clan of West Virginia is the true family of the counter culture, living lawlessly with a devotion to each other and no care for outsiders. “The Wild and Wonderful Whites” is a documentary released in May 2010 by Dickhouse Productions that follows the clan in their home Boone County WV for a year. Shoot-outs, robberies, gas-huffing , drug dealing, pill popping, murders, and tap dancing – what do these all have in common? These are just a few of the parts of being a member of the Wild and Wonderful White Family. If you think your standing apart from the world with your tattoo or your 80′s t-shirt this doc will put things in perspective.

While both of these videos easily deserve their own spotlight I think it is fitting they go hand and hand today for pure awesomeness. Remember that break dancing video we posted here a while back (seen here), well that was from the 2010 Chelles Battle Pro, and the video below is the highlights of the 2011 battle, pure dopeness. Underneath that we have a history making surfing move, the first ever kick flip recorded on a surfboard, epic gnarly gnarlingtoness going on right here.
Zoltan “The Magician” Torkos pulls off the first ever documented kickflip, making him the first surfer in four years to nail the trick on camera for Volcom Stone’s $10,000 Kickflip-Off Contest.
One clever person decided to intermix footage of the recent revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia of “Pale Blue Dot” to give an entirely different and immediate feeling to Carl Sagan’s classic narration. Very well done. We have featured Carl Sagan’s awesome narration before in those NASA videos, but if you don’t know who Carl Sagan is then google him and read about a genius.

How About a Tall Cool Glass of Winning? I Give You the “Tiger’s Blood with a Dash of Adonis DNA” Cocktail07 Mar 2011, written by Revelation
We found the secret to Charlie Sheen’s endless win streak: Tiger’s blood and Adonis DNA have been hacked, and the recipe is below.
A take on the traditional Bloody Mary, this cocktail was created by the mixologists at the Moroccan restaurant Fifty Five in New York City. And just like Sheen himself, the cocktail is extremely potent. Besides the Bragg Aminos to give you a protein energy kick, there’s heat from ginger, chili peppers, wasabi, and two types of radish. The Glenmorangie Sherry provides the punch, while the olive juice, citrus and balsamic vinegar kick in some high-end flavor. So grab your Goddesses, mix up a few glasses, and prepare yourself for some winning.
Recipe is below, it is friggen gnarley gnarlington
