Watch This Hilarious Sesame Street Remake Of The Beastie Boys’ Classic “Sabotage” Video

Watch This Hilarious Sesame Street Remake Of The Beastie Boys’ Classic “Sabotage” Video

first_imgIn 1994, The Beastie Boys’ released the first single off their fourth studio album, Ill Communication. “Sabotage” as a track unto itself is already well-known, with the opening riffs recognizable to near everyone and the number having made Rolling Stones list of the 500 greatest songs of all time. However, its music video, which was directed by Spike Jonze, has been similarly influential in pop culture.The Album That Changed My Life: Beastie Boys’ ‘Ill Communication’The music video for “Sabotage” invokes the cop dramas of the 1970’s, with each of the Beastie Boys introduced as fictional actors playing archetypal roles from the throwback police show genre — the late MCA plays a fictionalized guest star playing himself as well as “Nathan Wind” as a character named “Cochese,” Ad-Rock plays “Vic Colfari” playing “Bobby, The Rookie,” Mike D plays “Alasondro Alegré” playing “The Chief,” and DJ Hurricane plays “Fred Kelly” as “Bunny.” The now campy video received a bunch of airtime on MTV when it came out, eventually sweeping the MTV Music Video Awards for its groundbreaking narrative style and overall badassery (for example, the video that aired on television had a knife fight, a man falling off a bridge, and a man being thrown from a car edited out).Genius Producer Remixes Beastie Boys Tracks With Only Daft Punk Samples [Listen]Yesterday, a new take on this classic Beastie Boy music video was released, and it’s immediately one of our new favorite things. Created by Mylo the Cat, the mash-up music video combines some of our favorite Muppets from Sesame Street with the drama, music, and intrigue of the now-legendary “Sabotage” music video. Dubbed “Sesametage,” the new video sees Big Bird flying the coop and on the run, as The Count playing “Cochese,” Super Grover as “The Chief,” and Oscar the Grouch as “The Rookie” chase him down. The parallels between the original and the Sesame Street rendition are hilarious, so you can check out both the original 1994 Beastie Boys “Sabotage” music video and the new Muppet-heavy mash-up below.“Sesametage”“Sabotage”[H/T NPR]last_img read more

James Corden recently paid a visit to the touring production of the legendary tuner under the impression that he would be playing his dream role of The Phantom (his “Night time sharpens” will stay with you, we can promise you that). After learning that the musical’s headliner Chris Mann wouldn’t be handing the mask over (despite Corden being a Tony winner, as he didn’t hesitate to point out), The Late Late Show host throws himself into the role of Fop 2.

Letters to the Editor for Monday, May 6

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionStop the slander and get more informedToo often, we fire words with reckless intent to smear and demean.A recent writer’s brash claim, “Many Americans are surrendering their values” supporting a president whose “motives are driven by narcissism” trashes both our president and voting citizens exercising their right.Is the writer privy to the president’s motives, or uttering the mantras of a hostile media?Continuing to “illustrate” surrender of “values,” the “horrified” writer asserts, with nary a shred of evidence, that appointing William Barr as attorney general was a “sinister plot” by Trump to gain a protector in the position of the office. She then declares, in an unclear and unsubstantiated statement, “he has forever tainted and dishonored the office of United States Attorney General.”We bear the responsibility to be informed. Though we no longer rely on the media to report facts, we have easy access to information. Bill Barr’s Memorandum of 8 June 2018 on Mueller’s “Obstruction” Theory addressed to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is online. You will find more than 18 pages of articulate, carefully measured and weighed reasoning, referencing many legal cases. Kids get a taste of reality about vapingHere’s a lesson for you.One of my daughter’s friends, a teacher, stopped by and told me about a recent lesson she taught at one of the local middle schools.She started her lesson by saying to her 13-year-old students, “Today, we are going to make milkshakes, and we are going to use some of the same ingredients that are used in making e-cigarettes. Let’s start with blueberries. Flavor is important to both concoctions. Next, a little formaldehyde. It’s used to manufacture the colorless, gaseous stuff that makes the smoke in e-pens. Yes, it’s used in fertilizers and embalming fluids, but only large amounts are harmful.Next is the e-liquid. That’s the propellant used to get the smoke into the lungs. It causes cancer in rats and heart disease in humans, but only if used to excess. How about a little arsenic? It’s used in rat poison, but it keeps the ingredients in vape machines free of rodents in stores. Then, a little cyanide. It’s only dangerous in large amounts, but it, too, adds flavor to the smoke inhaled. In keeping with that flavor, let’s add a little yogurt. Our milkshake is complete and just as tasty as those trendy little e-pens. Now, who wants to try my milkshake?”  No hands went up, but a great discussion took place on whether to vape or not to vape.Allen R.

Heat, water woes and coronavirus: India’s perfect storm

Heat, water woes and coronavirus: India’s perfect storm

first_imgBollywood stars and political leaders have urged Indians to wash their hands to protect against coronavirus but that’s a pipe dream for slum-dwellers like Bala Devi, now sweltering through a summer heatwave.The 44-year-old widow and her family of eight are among tens of millions of people facing months of torrid weather while stuck at home, in lockdown, without regular access to clean water to keep cool and wash.”It is so hot the children keep asking for water to drink. How can I give them water for washing their hands when we don’t have even enough water to drink?” Devi said at her cramped home in New Delhi. “Already our children are falling sick,” she added, her half-naked toddler hanging from her arms. Liquid gold Even before the coronavirus pandemic, water was in short supply for the 100 million people living in India’s urban slums.Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government has listed water infrastructure as a key priority, promising to reach 145 million rural households by 2024.But currently roughly a third of the country’s 1.3 billion people cut back on washing and bathing during summer as taps run dry.Trucks deliver water to areas suffering shortfalls during the summer months but fights regularly break out in long queues to the tap.Last year the southern city of Chennai ran out of water entirely.Heatwaves are increasing in frequency, and this week the mercury hit 50 Celsius in western Rajasthan state. Parts of Delhi recorded their hottest May temperatures in almost 20 years.Heat stress has killed around 3,500 people around the country since 2015, according to government figures, while farmers have killed themselves because of droughts ravaging their crops.Only around seven percent of Indian households have air conditioning, despite rising incomes making the luxury more affordable for some.Tarun Gopalakrishnan from the Centre for Science and Environment think-tank said India must brace for frequent periods of extreme heat in the future.”When we look at the seasonal averages we sometimes miss the picture that the extremes are increasing, causing massive social disruptions,” he told AFP. “Every drop of water is a luxury for us. We can’t afford to spend it on bathing,” she told AFP, pinching her nose at the waft of clogged drains as unwashed children milled around her.Outside it is around 45 degrees Celsius (113 degrees Fahrenheit) but her one-bedroom tenement house has just an improvised ceiling fan to keep its occupants cool.There is a piped water connection but the supply is extremely erratic and a pump connected to the groundwater mostly spews air. Her family uses a common public toilet and their “bathroom” is a bucket behind a curtain.”If we can’t wash and clean and there is filth everywhere, obviously the virus will attack us, but what can we do?” asked Devi’s neighbor Anita Bisht.center_img More misery India’s coronavirus lockdown is slowly being eased but the restrictions have compounded the miseries of the current heatwave.In Delhi, a sprawling city teeming with 20 million people, demand for water outstrips supply by an estimated 200 million gallons (760 million litres) per day.The daily wait for water trucks in the capital has become even worse since the pandemic hit the city.Lining up for hours with plastic buckets and bottles, slum dwellers are now meant to stand a suitable distance apart — if the government truck ever comes.Lakhpat, a resident of the Sanjay Niwas slum settlement, recently waited in vain for over two hours with dozens of others for the scheduled water tanker to arrive.”Because of the water problem we can’t follow social distancing rules. People stick together closely in the mad rush to get their buckets filled first,” he said. Topics :last_img read more

Team Van Oord: Birmingham Scheme in Full Swing

Team Van Oord: Birmingham Scheme in Full Swing

first_imgWork is underway on the second element of a £4 million flood prevention scheme in Birmingham, being carried out by Team Van Oord on behalf of the Environment Agency.The works are being carried out in two phases – Selly Park North and Selly Park South – and when complete will significantly reduce the risk of flooding from Bourn Brook, a tributary of the River Rea, for hundreds of local homes and businesses.Work is well underway on the Selly Park South flood defense scheme which comprises the construction of an embankment and a pile cladded wall to prevent water from overtopping the left bank of the River Rea, and creation of an area to store water during storm events upstream of the Dogpool Lane Bridge.Downstream of the bridge new reinforced concrete walls will be constructed to protect the properties directly affected by the works, which started in September 2016 and are scheduled for completion in autumn 2017.The scheme’s design was produced by Calthorpe Estates working closely with the Environment Agency, Birmingham City Council, Team Van Oord and other stakeholders as part of the Rea Catchment Partnership.[mappress mapid=”24212″]last_img read more

Former foes endorse Martelly

Former foes endorse Martelly

first_imgNewsRegional Former foes endorse Martelly by: – March 14, 2011 Share 32 Views   no discussions Share Sharing is caring!center_img Share Tweet Five candidates who were defeated in the first round of Haiti’s presidential election have given their support to pop singer Michel Martelly in the second round run-off.Mr Martelly will face former first lady Mirlande Manigat in the 20 March vote. The five candidates said Mr Martelly was the candidate most likely to promote democracy and development. But they said the best solution would have been to annul the first round because of widespread fraud.In a joint statement, defeated candidates Josette Bijou, Wilson Jeudy, Genard Joseph, Chavanne Jeune and Eric Smarki Charles praised Mr Martelly for the “spirit of openness” he had shown in his campaign. “We urge all our supporters in all corners of the country to go out and vote in mass for Michel Martelly to become president on Sunday 20 March,” the statement said.ControversyThe Martelly camp also received a boost at the weekend when hip-hop star Wyclef Jean performed at a campaign-rally concert for the candidate in Gonaives, Haiti’s third largest city. But the candidates added that the “best solution for democracy” would have been to annul the “masquerade” of the first round. Ms Manigat won the most votes in the first round, but opinion polls give Mr Martelly a slight lead ahead of next weekend’s decisive vote.The election to chose a successor to outgoing Haitian president Rene Preval has been mired in controversy. International observers said the first round on 28 November was marred by fraud and intimidation.Violent unrest broke out when Haiti’s electoral authorities announced initial results that put the governing Inite party candidate Jude Celestin in second place.Pressure from abroadThe second round was postponed, and experts from the Organisation of American States and the Caribbean Community (Caricom) were called in to assess the result. They found there had been large-scale fraud in Mr Celestin’s favour, and recommended he withdraw. After sustained international pressure, the electoral authority announced new results which put Mr Martelly through to the run-off against Ms Manigat.Whoever wins the election faces the task of rebuilding Haiti after last year’s huge earthquake, which killed around 230,000 people and left the capital, Port-au-Prince, in ruins.Source: BBC Caribbeanlast_img read more
