    Thug Notes: Pride and Prejudice Explained By A Gangsta

    A modern-day summary of a classic tale: Pride and Prejudice   I’m digging this new short YouTube series where classic literature is broken down by a ‘gangsta’. The contemporary storytelling method is designed to assist millennials and younger generations to understand and appreciate the universal themes penned by Jane Austen, from what might otherwise be inaccessible prose as the vernacular changes more and more with the digital age. This video breaks down Austen’s second novel, Pride and Prejudice, which just happened to be announced yesterday as the “The Nation’s Favourite Second Novel” by The Royal Society of Literature. With so many modern adaptations and appropriations such as the one featuring Keira…

    [Video] Twerking in the Rain by Todrick Hall

    Hilarious. I’ve been a fan of Todrick Hall since his ‘Beauty and the Beat‘ video just over a year ago, mixing up fairytales with modern beats to create mini-musicals on YouTube. He got famous with a musical McDonald’s order and recently he’s been featured on Forbes and listed on the 30 under 30, Entertainment industry.

    Study shows what women want on the dancefloor

      So when I saw this article about the study, I thought it sounded interesting and had expectations of detailed dance moves e.g. bboy moves versus a popper’s moves. Boy was I disappointed. They recruited a bunch of random men and told them to dance to random beats, and out of that showed that larger movements were favoured by women as opposed to small, walking types of movements. I was truly having a WTF moment. This also reminded me of conversations I’ll have with my girlfriends around dating standards – as a dancer, we’d usually have certain standards of guys and dance skills are up there. It is quite cute…
