"Das Racist is a rap group based in Brooklyn, composed of Queens-born Himanshu Suri and San Francisco-born Victor Vazquez joined by hype man Ashok Kondabolu, known as Dap, for live performances and in music videos. Known for their use of humor, obscure references, and unconventional style, Das Racist has been both dismissed as joke rap and hailed as an urgent new voice in rap."
"My Best Friend's Birthday is a black and white amateur film written by Craig Hamann and Quentin Tarantino and directed by Quentin Tarantino, while he was working at the now shuttered Video Archives in Manhattan Beach, California. The project started in 1984, when Hamann wrote a short 30-40 page script about a young man who continually tries to do something nice for his friend's birthday, only to have his efforts backfire.
Tarantino became attached to the project as co-writer and director, and he and Hamann expanded the short script into an 80 page script. On an estimated budget of $5,000, they shot the film on 16mm over the course of the next four years. Hamann and Tarantino starred in the film, along with several video store and acting class buddies, and worked on the crew, which included fellow Video Archives employees Rand Vossler and Roger Avary. It is the most overtly comedic film that Tarantino has made. In an interview with Charlie Rose (available on the Region 1, Collector's Edition DVD), he referred to it as a "Martin and Lewis kind of thing."
The original cut was about 70 minutes long but due to a fire only 36 minutes of the film survived. The 36 minute cut has been shown at several film festivals. It has never been officially released. Several actors in this film later appeared in Tarantino's other films Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and Kill Bill.
Tarantino has referred to this film as his "film school". Although the film was by his own admission very poorly directed, the experience gained from the film helped him in directing future films."
"This season's All-Star festivities are being held at Staples Center. The slam dunk contest is slated for Saturday, Feb. 19."
"There's so much more to look forward to than the annual letdown, or the increasingly tired debate over whether in-game dunking has outmoded the contest, or the contest outmoded itself. There's Griffin, who is dunking personified this season; McGee, a constant source of amusement, amazement, and confusion; Ibaka's good vibrations; and Jennings, even if he just ends up playing hype-man, or sidekick, to all the bombast. This year, for the first time in a while, the dunk contest really will be must-watch television."
"Gonsalves injects a sense of magic into realistic scenes. As a result, the term "Magic Realism" describes his work accurately. His work is an attempt to represent human beings' desire to believe the impossible, to be open to possibility."
"Olympic organizers have said the Rio 2016 brand was created to reflect the city's culture and represent its natural wonders and joyful residents. Organizers said the logo was based on four pillars: contagious energy, harmonious diversity, exuberant nature and Olympic spirit.
Nearly 140 agencies initially participated in the process to design the logo and only eight made it into the final phase. A multidisciplinary team of 15 national and international members of Rio 2016's organizing committee made the final decision a few months ago, selecting a design created by the Rio agency, Tatil."
