I don’t know who Melissa Harris-Perry is but I salute her for this.
She breaks down what is the Harlem Shake, cultural appropriation and why those crazy fun dance videos shouldn’t be called the Harlem Shake.
I know I reblogged earlier, but did y’all catch the shade she threw (twice!) talkin’ bout (white) folks dancing to any old beat??? Yes, MHP is my shero and better than your faves!
MHP don’t play!
“Feel free to fling, jerk and toss yourself around to any beat you feel like…even if you’re the only one who can hear it.”
Also? The dancing? Holy. Crap. That one guy with his hat? Damn.
Do You Believe - Deftones (originally by The Cardigans)
One of my most favourite covers of all time.
Oh heaven, oh heaven
I wake with good intentions
- ‘Heaven’ by Emeli Sande.
The Mast - UpUpUp (official video feat. Pandora Marie)
Frank’s Death - Soldiers (Requiem in D Minor)
From 28 Days Later
- ‘Car Song’ by Spank Rock feat. Santigold.
I am seriously starved for new Santigold stuff.
Also, the album this is from is called ‘Everything is Boring & Everyone is a Fucking Liar’. I identify with this.
This advert makes me so happy.
- ‘You Don’t Trust Anyone’ by Sparrow & The Workshop
This song is the best thing about today.
Actually, scrap that last video. I like this choir’s performance better. (Sorry, Warsaw)
David Mitchell’s hysterical laughter over Rob Brydon’s ‘Cuddle Jumper’.
This makes me go all hand-flappy and squeeish every time I see it. Y SO ADORBS, MR MITCHELL???
- ‘Not In Love’, Crystal Castles feat. Robert Smith.
Sometimes it feels like Mr. Smith has a direct insight in to my brain.
