SeMeN SPeRmS UnCut BET Retro Twerkfest

BET Uncut

BET: Uncut was a television program that aired on BET. The music video program contained highly sexualized imagery. Because of its content, the show was rated TV-MA and accompanied by an on-air message stating that it is not suitable for children under the age of 17. The show aired on Wednesdays through Fridays at 3 a.m. EST. Though some of the videos were from well-known hip hop artists, most were from lesser-known artists, and the production value of the videos were often quite poor.

Its last episode aired on July 8, 2006 and was hosted by Jermaine Dupri.

While the videos are lightly censored, its content has been the focus of controversy. For example, MSNBC has reported that even some hip-hop artists such as Big Boi of Outkast thought the show was distasteful and could constitute soft porn.Likewise, individuals affiliated with historically black institutions such as Spelman College and Essence Magazine have publicly stated that the erotic imagery of the show falls outside of acceptable standards. Regardless, the show maintained a degree of popularity.

Reggae: The Story of Jamaican Music – BBC Documentary

Reggae The Story Of Jamaican Music

“Reggae: The Story of Jamaican Music” was an impressive documentary made by director Mike Connolly for the BBC.

It was originally shown in 2002 and the documentary traces the evolution of Reggae Music from Mento and Ska, all the way up to Roots, Dub, and Dancehall. The film traces the story of how Jamaica conquered the world through its music. With interviews and commentary from reggae legends this is well worth investing some of your time in watching.

Interviews include Buju Banton, Shaggy, Sly and Robbie, Capleton, Max Romero, Bunny Wailer, Jimmy Cliff, Gregory Isaacs, and many many more.

The documentary has been hard to find in recent years, and doesn’t get too many repeats, so it was with great pleasure that we found it had been made available to watch online. We have aggregated it into 3 parts below……so enjoy!

1/ TRAIN TO SKAVILLE
The early roots of reggae music, and its rise to popularity. How the music was used to recount experiences and songs of social commentary were written. In the sixties immigration from Jamaica to the UK increased and brought Jamaican music. Ska picked up a white fan base. The programme also covers both the music scene and the social climate in Jamaica during the sixties. By the end of the sixties reggae had established itself as mainstream pop music in Britain, and was increasingly recorded in this country by Dandy Livingstone, Eddy Grant and Greyhound etc.

2/ REBEL MUSIC 
A look at reggae in the 1970s, when, ten years after independence from Britain and the harsh economic conditions were taking their toll, the disillusioned and dissatisfied Jamaican youth channeled their anger into roots music. The era gave rise to Bob Marley, the country’s first superstar, Lee “Scratch” Perry, reggae’s most notable producer, and King Tubby, who popularised ‘dub’, the remixing of existing records. In Britain, black youth latched on to the roots sound to create their own version, Brit reggae, with bands such as Steel Pulse and Aswad emerging.

3/ INNA DANCEHALL STYLE
Examines the progression of reggae after the death of Bob Marley, including the start of dancehall. In America reggae had a connection with hip-hop and DJ Shabba Ranks saw his popularity rise and fall. Looks at how Jamaican street styles have achieved a dominance in Britain and the rise of New Roots in Jamiaca.

BiS

BiS – Brand New Idol Society – Splatter JPop
BiS (the name is short for “Brand New Idol Society”) are an intense Japanese idol group, sort of like a dark and dysfunctional AKB48 in serious need of shock therapy and/or happy pills. With ham-fisted promo images like the one below, it is initially kind of tempting to laugh them off, but BiS music – which is a mix of metal rock and more traditional jpop songcraft – continues to be oddly compelling.

Susan Crawford on Why U.S. Internet Access is Slow, Costly and Unfair
Susan Crawford, former special assistant to President Obama for science, technology and innovation, and author of Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age, joins Bill to discuss how our government has allowed a few powerful media conglomerates to put profit ahead of the public interest — rigging the rules, raising prices, and stifling competition. As a result, Crawford says, all of us are at the mercy of the biggest business monopoly since Standard Oil in the first Gilded Age a hundred years ago.

Gospel Singers Say ‘Fair Use’ Does Not Include Obscenity-Laced Hip-Hop Version

Warrick and Weary complain that the defendants filled their religious tune with foul language: “Defendants have hijacked music and lyrics that were written by plaintiffs to be performed only as spiritually uplifting gospel music and have laced plaintiffs’ gospel work with unsavory language such as ‘[i]f you real motherf***er scream cheers,’ ‘[i]f the b**** bad I got her in red bottoms,’ ‘I only love her when that a** fat,’ ‘[c]ome and suck a d*** for a millionaire,’ ‘N****s couldn’t f*** with my daughter’s room,’ ‘I whip the coke [cocaine], let the lawyer beat the case,’ and ‘spray these n****s baby just like daddy taught ya.’ [Spelling and brackets as in complaint.] “Defendants’ use of plaintiffs’ work in the manner used continues to destroy the commercial value of the song in gospel circles. Defendants’ use of plaintiffs’ work is also destroying rather than enhancing the overall integrity and longevity of plaintiffs’ gospel song. After the current use of plaintiffs’ copyright…

Darlene Flatoff being removed from home for letting rats run wild

Authorities in Wisconsin said a woman found to be living with more than 300 rats running loose in her trailer home is being evicted. The Portage County Sheriff’s Department said Darlene Flatoff will be evicted from her Birch Tree Estates home in Plover within the next 10 days after health officials discovered the woman has been keeping more than 300 rats loose in her home since March of last year and possibly longer, the Wausau Daily Herald reported Thursday. Officials said the rodents and their droppings are posing a health risk. They said Flatoff bought her first rats from pet stores and they eventually reproduced with wild rats.

Is There Pesticide in the Weed You’re Smoking?

Dan Tomaski, who runs northern Michigan’s most comprehensive medical marijuana testing lab service, found that some marijuana contains mold and pesticides at levels more than 60 times those allowed for store-bought spinach. Yet, unlike pesticides on produce, there are zero regulations for pesticides on marijuana, and no single pesticide has ever been approved for use on marijuana. Despite the lack of regulation, some marijuana growers continue to maximize profit by heavily spraying their marijuana to grow as much pot as quickly as they can — so much so that Agent Patrick Foy of the California Department of Fish and Game estimated that 1.5 pounds of fertilizers and pesticides are used for every 11.5 plants. His message to weed smokers is: “You ain’t just smoking pot, bud. You’re smoking some heavy-duty pesticides.”

‘Cannibal cop’ Gilberto Valle prospective jurors see shocking photos of naked women on questionaire to weed out the squeamish

One shot showed a hog-tied woman with an apple in her mouth kneeling on a roasting platter. ‘Many of Mr. Valle’s communications with others took place on sexual fetish websites in which people discuss, view and post images and videos of sexual, sexually violent, and sexually deviant conduct, such as necrophilia, sexual asphyxiation, genital mutilation, rape fantasies, bondage and various forms of sadomasochism,’ Judge Paul Gardephe told them.

Renewables now cheaper than coal and gas in Australia

A new analysis from research firm Bloomberg New Energy Finance has concluded that electricity from unsubsidised renewable energy is already cheaper than electricity from new-build coal and gas-fired power stations in Australia. The modeling from the BNEF team in Sydney found that new wind farms could supply electricity at a cost of $80/MWh –compared with $143/MWh for new build coal, and $116/MWh for new build gas-fired generation. These figures include the cost of carbon emissions, but BNEF said even without a carbon price, wind energy remained 14 per cent cheaper than new coal and 18 per cent cheaper than new gas. “The perception that fossil fuels are cheap and renewables are expensive is now out of date”, said Michael Liebreich, chief executive of Bloomberg New Energy Finance. “The fact that wind power is now cheaper than coal and gas in a country with some of the world’s best fossil fuel resources shows that clean energy is a game changer which promises to turn the economics …

Software that tracks people on social media created by defence firm

A multinational security firm has secretly developed software capable of tracking people’s movements and predicting future behaviour by mining data from social networking websites. A video obtained by the Guardian reveals how an “extreme-scale analytics” system created by Raytheon, the world’s fifth largest defence contractor, can gather vast amounts of information about people from websites including Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare. Raytheon says it has not sold the software – named Riot, or Rapid Information Overlay Technology – to any clients. But the Massachusetts-based company has acknowledged the technology was shared with US government and industry as part of a joint research and development effort, in 2010, to help build a national security system capable of analysing “trillions of entities” from cyberspace.

5 Homeland Security ‘Bots Coming to Spy on You (If They Aren’t Already)

DHS funds research and development for surveillance robots. It provides grant money by the hundreds of thousands to police agencies to buy their own. And sometimes it’s bought and deployed robots — for their skies, the ground and the waters — of its own, usually concentrated along the border. It’s not clear how many of those robots police operate, and law enforcement isn’t by any means the only domestic market for the ‘bots. But the trend lines point toward more robotic spy tools for law enforcement in more places — with more DHS cash.

Florida couple are ‘addicted’ to coffee enemas

You certainly won’t find this at Starbucks. A Florida couple has a shocking way to get their coffee fix: through multiple daily enemas, which they administer to themselves in their home. Mike and Trina of St. Petersburg (who haven’t given their last name) are addicted to the icky process, they revealed to TLC. They appear on the season premiere of the network’s “My Strange Addiction,” set to air Feb. 13. Neither of them drink coffee, but they sometimes spend about five hours a day flushing out their colons with fresh-brewed joe. “[Once] in a 24-hour period, I probably did nine or 10,” Trina said.

Your privacy on OkCupid: the unromantic truth

More than 7 million OkCupid users trust the site with their most intimate details in exchange for potential dates. You lay your heart on the table (or more accurately, in your profile); your disclosures nab you a romance. After all, it’s hard to get a date without showing who you are. But to connect with other members, you also have to share with OkCupid. And the site, which was purchased in 2011 by corporate giant Match.com, is famous for making the most of its users’ data, whether to analyze on its OkTrends blog or to make money. Is this “data for a date” relationship that so many of us have with OkCupid worth it, or is it a privacy heartbreak waiting to happen? We researched OkCupid.com to see how it collects and uses its members’ information. In Facebook parlance, it’s a little complicated.

Another Weird Shiny Thing on Mars

The Curiosity Mars rover has found some strange-looking little things on Mars – you’ve likely heard of the Mars ‘flower,’ the piece of benign plastic from the rover itself, and other bright flecks of granules in the Martian soil. Now the rover has imaged a small metallic-looking protuberance on a rock. Visible in the image above (the green lines point to it), the protuberance appears to have a high albedo and even projects a shadow on the rock below.

Mayor Will Kill SPD’s Drone Program

Later this afternoon, Mayor Mike McGinn will announce that he is grounding the Seattle Police Department’s controversial drone program and returning the two remotely controlled planes to the vendor, according to sources at City Hall who asked not to be named. “The mayor and chief had a conversation and agreed it was time to end the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle program,” one of the sources tells us. “It had become a distraction to the two things the department is working hard on, general public safety and community-building work.”

Vaginas Of Craigslist Project

I am working on an art project that will be named “The Vaginas Of Craigslist”. What I am doing is that I am collecting pictures of anonymously and voluntarily submitted vaginas from craigslist users and putting them on a tumlbr page. I am looking for pictures of all vaginas as long as you are over 18. I really do not care if it is a shaved, hairy, or whatnot. I do not care if you think it is an ugly Vagina (after I look at it I will definitely disagree with that assessment because I firmly believe that there is no such thing as an ugly vagina). I need all kinds and types of Vaginas as long as they are your vagina (do not submitt someone elses) and as long as you are 18 or over. Please send me an anonymous picture of your vagina (vagina only, no other parts of your body needed) and place a caption on it that you would like for the website to say. I will send you the link to your vagina after it is posted so you can see yours and all of the rest of the submissions. Thank you for your …

Octopus On Dolphin’s Genitals (PHOTOS)

The tentacled hitchhiker was attached to the dolphin’s genital slit. Photographer Joan Gonzalvo isn’t sure what the octopus was up to, though he told New Scientist that perhaps the dolphin tried to eat the octopus and the animal lodged itself along the dolphin’s genital slit to escape. The dolphin may have been leaping from the water to detach its uninvited guest, Gonzalvo, the project manager of the Ionian Dolphin Project, wrote on the organization’s blog. After shaking the octopus loose, the dolphin continued to swim with no signs of discomfort, he added.
