Bill Shannon is a dancer/media artist who was born with a degenerative hip condition where his legs cannot support his weight so he must use crutches to get around. He’s developed a personal style of skateboarding/breakdancing that implements the crutches.
Check out the RJD2 video featuring one continuous shot of Shannon in NYC:
There’s also a short doc on Shannon with more footage of his performance art:

Mr. West is back with another single. Double negative aside, this is classic (cliche?) Kanye. Addictively melodic sample? Check. Lyrical lamentation over the materialism of hip hop with timely references to diamonds and handbags? Check. Uninspired flow with awkward rhyme schemes? Check.
From the look of the video, Mr. West got a deal on the set (or digital composite) Linkin Park used for What I’ve Done and hired a crew, model, and wind machine to recreate …

Politically responsible hip hop? Yessir. I defy you to not like Mos Def.
So now I ask you, what’s beef? Bust a freestyle in the comments.

Music video for the song “D.A.N.C.E.” by Justice. Great disco vibe and a kicking bass line. I love the 80s style to the video and some really good effects. Someone needs to invent these t-shirts for real.

I think Leah showed some talent (hell, she won last week, that must have been one hell of a roller coaster for her) and just needed to come out of her shell. This seemed to be taking awhile, too long apparently. When they focused on her and Casey’s ‘lifelong friendship’ I knew one of them was getting the ax.
Maybe it was residual angst over Camille’s exit last week, but I had a hard time getting …

This is old-school SNL, a really classic fake commercial.
Robots are everywhere and they eat old people’s medicine for food.
And when they grab you with those metal claws you can’t break free, because they’re made out of metal and robots are strong.
It’s a friendly robot…this time.
Don’t cower under your afghan any longer. Make a choice: Old Glory Insurance for when the metal ones come for you. And they will.

The Next Food Network Star has become a bit of a guilty pleasure for me this season. Last year, I watched it as a marathon of repeats one Sunday while I was visiting home. This year, I’ve tuned in every week. Rory Schepisi’s “aw shucks” approachability made her an early favorite for me, which proved to be a clairvoyant choice. It’s like Ghandi said, vote for the girl with the biggest…smile. She’s got some humility …

Not since Sam’s dismissal last year have I been so sad as I was this week when Camille Becerra was eliminated from Top Chef. For those who haven’t seen it, the chefs were split into groups of three and each were responsible for an individual course in a four-course tasting menu. Camille’s team went last, and Dale decided they needed to do a dessert. Good idea, if any of them had pastry experience, but …
