Documentary Watch: Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels Of A Tribe CAlled Quest

If you’re like me, you grew up listenting to A Tribe Called Quest, and loved the shit out of them. Michael Rapaport’s documentary “BEATS, RHYMES & LIFE: THE TRAVELS OF A TRIBE CALLED QUEST” takes you back to that magical time in Hip-Hop when guys rapped about daisies, El Segundo and Seaman’s Furniture. It was a time when Hip-Hop was adventurous and Tribe Called Quest made it cool to march to the beat of your own drummer.

“BEATS, RHYMES & LIFE: THE TRAVELS OF A TRIBE CALLED QUEST” captures the nostalgia of a time before New York City had caught affluenza and was a hot bed for aspiring artists of all genres. The use of archival footage, vintage photos and clever animation rounded out this thoroughly entertaining journey through the history of one of Hip-Hop’s most seminal groups.

Bulgarian War Memorial Vandalized… And Never Looked So Damn Good!

 

According to Gawker‘s Seth Abramovitch a public monument to the Soviet Armed Forces in Sofia, Bulgaria was vandalized spectacularly over the weekend. The statues of the Second World War soldiers were painted to resemble such candy-colored figures of capitalist iconography as Superman, Ronald McDonald, Santa Claus, Captain America and The Joker. The spray-painted writing beneath it says the hack now puts the statue “in step with the times!”

Today, Bulgarian Minister of Culture Vezhdi Rashidov denounced the act as “vandalism…We are the only ones led by some kind of destructive force when it comes to monuments of socialism.” The kid in red on the skateboard just thinks it’s awesome. [sofiaecho.comphoto via AP]

Gerald Davis Is A Perv And We like it

At first glance you might write off Gerald Davis as another pervert painting his sick thoughts on canvas but this LA based artist has some serious painting and drawing chops. I recently saw his work in person and was blown away with the richness of his work and his glowing use of light. Gerald is a serious artist taking our funny and dirty thoughts and creating bold and imaginative works out of them.
