MUSIC VIDEO: Thong Song?

It's a new song! Thong Song! Wait, isn't that...wait, that is! And he, oh yes he did! It's Sisqo giving a fresh spin on his absolutely ICONIC song!

THONGS!


The comments are hilarious on the video, people are unhappy that there are no dumps like trucks in the video, but I don't think Sisqo cares, this song will do well and introduces Thong Song to a whole new generation. It takes the original and adds all the trinkets pop music has made us used to now. It's not the best song, but like Wild Thoughts, plays on nostalgia to hook you in. I'll have it.

Watch the video here (not, semi NSFW because of ample bum shots):

VIDEO: Batman Vs Superman (Pokemon)

The question still stands, who will win, Batman, or Superman? It really depends on who you're a fan of hey!

There should be no way that Batman should beat Superman, but Batman fans will tell you otherwise. He's a genius, he'll figure out a way, he's BATMAN! Superman is a boring hero, too bland and powers are wide-ranging.

So one talented team of YouTubers took it upon themselves to settle this debate...by doing a Pokemon parody of the battle! You can check it out here!

VIDEO: Zygote

Neill Blomkamp has always been cutting edge and trendy with his work, and originating from South Africa, it's great to see his ascent in Hollywood. His latest work is a collection of short films, under the moniker 'Oats Studios', with the newest one being pretty intense.

It stars Dakota Fanning and it is dark, intense, and if you don't like creepy monsters, quite scary! I haven't seen the others, but will do so soon, but this one, shows again why Blomkamp is so highly-rated.

So go into a dark room, get your popcorn and nestle in for this dark fantasy.

Is Moana a demi-god too?

Moana is not only one of the biggest Disney successes in the last few years, it's one of the biggest animation movies since the dawn of the 2000s, with a story that is gives all the warm fuzzies we expect of Disney/Pixar film. It's amazingly animated, well researched and funny as well, with a soundtrack that will stick in your brain for long to come.



But if you've seen it, and you're an adult and not a kid that just looks out for bright colours and catchy songs, then some parts of the story might've bothered you a bit. One of my favourite Youtube channels, 'Film Theory' breaks down a very interesting theory on why and how Moana can do the things she does, and why she is so closely connected to the ocean, and almost impervious to dying. You must check it out!

Jingle All the Way

Last few days I had a mini epiphany. I'm good at making jingles



I have been doing video content for over 10 years already and because of copyrights and me being an actual muso, I always just whip up something for my stuff, and I've never thought of doing anything more with them than actually using them in my stuff.

So Now I'm offering jingle-making to the collection of things I do on a freelance basis, if you know of anyone who needs something jingly, and they like what they hear in this jingleocalypse, they should contact me and we can chat. One has to hustle all over the show these days with the junk status and our tanking economy so why not. Jingle All the Way!

Spider-Man: Homecoming new trailer

Spidey is up against it and this new trailer fleshes out the previous trailer, showing why Peter fights in a home-made suit, a bit more on why the Vulture is doing what he's doing and shows some cool new stuff about his suit and even debuts spider-bots, along with a whole butt-load of action and quips.

And also more Tony Stark. I wonder (and hope) there'll at least be a few more Avengers cameos (we see Cap in the trailer to fleetingly)

This movie is gonna be wild, I wish I could pre-book my Imax ticket now already!!

Planetary Space

I personally feel that back when I was at school, we were taught a lot of unnecessary things, like where was the how-to-do-SARS Module 1, and Understanding-Car-Payments-Watch-For-Balloons 101, and so forth in school?

Not only that, I feel many of the things we learnt were either outdated or no longer valid, and I don't think that irrelevance or incorrectness has changed for school in this day and age, I'm about 33.3% sure of that! Take the Solar System for instance, we got fed pretty pictures and stale information about space and the moon but do we really even understand the basics?

I had a vague idea that the planets were pretty far away and spaced well apart from each other, but how cool is this website that really does an epic job of giving you an idea of how far apart everything is, and how far from us (on Planet Earth) things are; spoiler, very VERY far!

You can see the excellent site here, but do it in your lunchtime or after work because you'll be scrolling reading the fun facts in-between for a while!

DragonBall and who inspired the villians

Life inspires art, and art inspires life. Anyone that is artsy in anyway, knows this is true, and many of our favourite movie and series characters have been inspired by real life.




I grew up on Dragon Ball in high school, and was enthralled by it, little did I know that this axiom was true for ol' DB as well. This video really opened my eyes to some really awesome things. Now I'm really clued up on my favourite comic and super hero back stories and easter eggs, but back when you were a kid, you don't always know these things, just have a look at this video that really goes into some cool details about how Dragon Ball was made and who inspired some of the villains and backdrops.

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR begins

As one of many who have been absolutely glued to the MCU since Iron Man did the impossible and build a franchise out of literal scrap metal, it is so amazing to see that the culmination of it all has begun. It's fascinating to think that all these characters with story arcs developed over so long will now all be in one big story together.

I am so amped to see how bad-ass Thanos is going to be and you can bet he will be because it's gonna take two whole movies to actually take him down, that's if they do eventually take him down, the Mad Titan is one of Marvel's most epic villains so I hope he reigns terror and Death down on the Avengers and that there are real risks and high stakes and that some of the older Marvel characters actually get killed off. With several contracts running out, you can bet (and hope) that's the case!

Enough from me, hear what the stars have to say!
