Vuitton and Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) Honor 'the Greatest'


Honoring boxing icon Muhammad Ali
The videos for the poems "Dream" and "Word," [Niels Shoe] Meulman uses a broom to paint the words in calligraphy-style letters on a boxing-ring floor. Bey recites some of the famed boxer's greatest words while jabbing the air around him. The soon-to-be-released videos for other poems -- "Float," "Life" and a special "Ali" -- will be in a similar form.

I Am Bruce Lee

I Am Bruce Lee tells the amazing story of one of the most iconic human beings ever to enter the public consciousness. Voted as one of the most important people of the 20th century in Time Magazine’s Time 100, as well as one of the Greatest Pop Culture Icons by People Magazine, Bruce Lee continues to be honoured and remembered for his enduring legacy.
Bruce Lee’s often revolutionary and sometimes controversial thinking on a multitude of planes has become a source of inspiration and debate for a generation of philosophers, actors, filmmakers and athletes. The film is a compelling and visually stunning uncovering of Bruce’s life, his enormous impact, and his ever-expanding legacy in the world of martial arts, entertainment, and beyond—despite his tragic and sudden death at the age of 32.
 I Am Bruce Lee features interviews with people who knew Bruce intimately, along with a broad array of international icons from the entertainment and athletic fields – people whose lives, careers and belief systems have been forever altered by the legend who UFC President Dana White calls the “Father of Mixed Martial Arts.” Interviews include basketball superstar Kobe Bryant, acclaimed actors Mickey Rourke and Ed O’Neill, world boxing champions Manny Pacquiao and Ray ‘Boom Boom’ Mancini, UFC’s Dana White and world champion Jon Jones, MMA fighters Cung Le and Stephan Bonnar, as well as actress and MMA fighter Gina Carano.  Other interviews featured in the film include celebrated writer/director Reginald Hudlin, pop music superstar Taboo, pro skateboarder Paul Rodriguez, Bruce Lee’s daughter Shannon Lee and his wife Linda Lee Cadwell, as well as a host of Bruce’s friends and associates including legendary martial artists Dan Inosanto, Bob Wall and Gene LeBell, in combination with rarely seen archival footage, classic photos, and cutting edge visuals and graphics. The film goes more deeply into the story of this legendary master than ever before.
 In select theaters Feb. 9th & 15th ONLY Image        Hosted by ImageShack.us

Will Sessions – Mix Takes: Take One & Two (Videos)



Will Sessions:
Bryan Arnold: Drums
Sam Beaubien: Keyboards
Ryan Gimpert: Guitar
Eric Kacir: Percussion, MPC1000
Tim Shellabarger: Bass, Synth Bass
impressed with the meticulous craftsmanship of their studio re-workings of the classic tracks on “The Elmatic Instrumentals.” With their new two-part video “Mix Takes,” the five-piece band is taking a similar approach in recreating some of their favorite songs--only this time it was all recorded and filmed live in real time.    Whether referencing music by jazz greats Herbie Hancock and Bob James or reinterpreting beats by J Dilla, Madlib, and Black Milk, it’s all presented with seamless transitions in the style of a mixtape, and “Mix Takes” both showcases the band’s individual talents and reflects the airtight performances that have made them one of the hottest live bands in Detroit.
The "Mix Takes" LP is available as a limited edition vinyl pressing.

Etta James, Powerful Voice Behind ‘At Last,’ Dies at 73

NYT :
Ms. James was not easy to pigeonhole. She is most often referred to as a rhythm and blues singer, and that is how she made her name in the 1950s.
She was also comfortable, and convincing, singing pop standards.
She is in both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Blues Hall of Fame.

The curative force in psychotherapy - man's tendency to actualize himself, to become his potentialities...to express and activate all the capacities of the organism. ~Carl Rogers
