Freestyle 101: Insane Clown Posse »


 

Yes kiddies, it’s Halloween and Freestyle 101 has a special, blood-splattered, painty-face double feature for you. First up are those wicked clowns out of Detroit, the ones the Juggalos revere and your parents despise, Insane Clown Posse! Then it's ICP affiliates Twiztid, the next wave of hip hop crazies!

Insane Clown Posse have been creating horror-driven hip hop for nearly two decades now and are one of the most successful group to ever grab the mic. Sure, all your hip hop snobs will cry foul that they wear makeup and rap about fantasy and sci-fi stuff instead of “keeping it real,” but while your bust hatin’, ICP is busy makin’ millions. Yup, say what you will, but ICP owns their own label, owns their own masters, tour constantly, and make more money of t-shirts in one night than you and your whole crew do in a year. Seriously. Plus, KISS, Alice Cooper and Marilyn Manson were criticized for dressing up like ghouls and making music that wasn’t “serious” and those guys are all legends now. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope mean business and give their rapid following what they want, time and time again. They are the Grateful Dead of hip hop…except they dress up like killer clowns. And they are from Detroit. And they will kill you. So go pick up ICP’s recent effort, The Tempest, and don’t say we didn’t warn you.

In a cinematic landscape riddled with studio slapdash and remakes galore, its refreshing to see a movie like Brad Anderson's Transsiberian, which is coming to DVD & Blu-Ray on November 4th from First Look Studios.  G4tv.com is proud to present an exclusive clip from the Special Features on the DVD release.

Anderson first made a splash with the romantic comedy, Next Stop Wonderland, and has evolved into one of cinema's more interesting genre directors, taking on haunted houses with Session 9, small-screen terror with Masters Of Horror and a skeletal Christian Bale in the minor-classic The Machinist. Anderson is always working on the fringe of mainstream moviemaking, and Transsiberian is the next step in his quest to make thought-provoking and original genre fare.

This Hitchcock-tinged mystery thriller follows an American couple (Woody Harrelson & Emily Mortimer) traveling from Beijing to Moscow on the legendary Trans-Siberian Express train. Along the way, they find themselves sharing a cabin with another couple, who are not what they appear, and the web of lies, drugs and murder begin to spin from there. Did we mention "The Bald Badass" himself, Sir Ben Kingsley, is also entangled as a hot-on-the-trail ex-KGB detective? What follows is a taut, tense and terrifying train ride that was one of the better films of the new year and very much worth a spin in your player.

We consider ourselves honored to present to you an exclusive Behind-The-Scenes clip from the snowy thriller's special features, which shows Anderson and his crew hard at work (and play) while filming the snowy thriller. Give this man the next Bond film, STAT.

Mozilla Labs, the company that makes Firefox, has been working on an experimental service they hope will change the way people interact with the Internet.

The service, called Ubiquity, is currently in an open alpha test and allows users to try out features that could eventually become Web 3.0 standards.

The service differs from anything else available by using advanced scripting to actually change the content of a page, which could include inserting a Google map of an address directly into an email or translating Japanese into English without requiring a translation service.

For a better idea, watch this video. Ignore the opening as it gets better once they start demonstrating the features. 

 

Ubiquity can be downloaded and tested by Firefox users by going to this page or downloading it directly here. It's a little tricky to get the hang of, but we think it could very well be the future of the Internet.

Thanks to some smarties in the digital design boutique division of Sony/BMG in London, we may now have the world's first music video in Excel format. Phil Clandillon and Steve Milbourne have created a music video for AC/DC's new single, "Rock n Roll Train", that is animated through an Excel spreadsheet. This is not only just plain cool, but it serves a purpose for us working stiffs stuck in a cubicle for eight hours a day.

"Basically, it's come about because we recognized that a lot of people have fairly restrictive internet and security policies at work," Clandillon told Wired.com. "What we really liked was that we could actually subvert the corporate firewalls by including AC/DC's music in an Excel spreadsheet, because that's allowed through every corporate firewall there is."

So thanks to these two Brit geniuses, anyone working in an office anywhere on the planet can enjoy some stadium rock to break up their day. If your boss is looking over your shoulder, just tell him it's a new presentation you're working on that will reinvigorate the working force. With rock!

Bill Gates Starts New Company

sjohnson
Posted October 23, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

Microsoft founder Bill Gates has started a new company, and no one is 100% sure what it's going to do. According to tech blog techflash:

"Public documents describe the new Gates entity -- bgC3 LLC -- as a 'think tank.' It’s housed within a Kirkland office that the Microsoft co-founder established on his own after leaving his day-to-day executive role at the company this summer."

A Gates insider quoted by tech flash says it's not a commercial venture. It's a vehicle to "coordinate the software mogul’s work on his business and philanthropic endeavors," so don't look for another Microsoft in the next few years!

In the past, Gates has said he is open to supporting breakthrough ideas where he sees a chance to advance the state of mankind.

All that philanthropy is awesome, but the fact is, according to the Attack of the Show video below, Bill Gates Runs Like a Girl.

Microsoft's Surface, the touch-sensitive, light-sensitive display scheme that will soon rule our lives, has many uses, but the newest one we've heard of is the best: It will get you drunk.

Specifically, if a saloon has a SurfaceWare table or bar, it could keep track of how much liquid is in your glass in real time, and send a waitress over when you're a quart low. That way, you need never face the unbearable heartbreak of an empty Rock 'n' Rye ever again. Our hearts say "rad," but our livers say, "Oh, no!"

Check out how the thing works in the video below:

Freestyle 101: Kool Keith + Kutmasta Kurt »


Kool Keith is many MCs to many people. Some know him as the frontman of one of New York’s most respected and beloved groups, Ultramagnetic MCs. Many know him as Dr. Octagon, the alias he used for 1996’s Dr. Octagonecologyst album, which birthed the Nerdcore Hip Hop genre and launched the careers of DJ Q-Bert, Kutmasta Kurt, Dan the Automator and DJ Shadow. Yet others know him as either Black Elvis, Dr. Doom, Keith Korg, Dr. Nogatco, Mathew or The Spankmaster, depending on which of his many albums you’re talking about, under his many aliases, as part of his many groups. Whew!

Keith has collaborated with everyone from The Pretenders to Ol’ Dirty Bastard to Ice-T in the past, and releases more albums and side-projects than just about any MC alive. The man is a workhorse! And have no fear, he has even more albums under different names planned, just to keep ya guessing! Most recently though Keith teamed up again with frequent collaborator Kutmasta Kurt for Dr. Dooom 2, released Sept 23 on Threshold Records, the twisted sequel to his beloved Dr. Dooom effort. You should pick it up, as well as last year’s Ultramagnetic MCs reunion album, Best Kept Secret. Both are quite good.

Mila Kunis Plays 'World Of Warcraft'

Posted October 21, 2008 - By jmanalang

There are plenty of reasons to adore the entity known as Mila Kunis. Aside for being "feign-death" gorgeous, she's quite the comic, voicing the character of Meg Griffin in Family Guy. Not only that, but she played the sexy Mona Sax in the recent Max Payne feature film.

And, folks, to top it all of, Mila Kunis is an avid player of World of Warcraft, complete with raid-talk and "Twink"-build characters. Here's what Kunis had to say during the Jimmy Kimmel show:

“The problem is, if anyone plays Warcraft… I’m really good, I’m a really kick ass Mage… We’ll you’re your own person and you can get into a guild… You gotta be in a guild, because you gotta do raids that require thirty or forty people. But now with the expansion pack, they’re gonna have raids that require only like ten people. So that’ll really make things a lot easier… Oh my god, it’s such a good game. I love it.”

We love you too...

The world has lost a great man today: Rudy Ray Moore, also known as Dolemite, has shuffled off this mortal coil and gone to Heaven with the angels. He died of diabetes at 81.

The comedian/actor/singer is best known for his portrayal of Dolemite in classic blaxploitation flicks Dolemite and The Human Tornado. Moore popularized the pimp archetype, and so was instrumental in the creation of 87 million-zillion rap songs and hip-hop personas. Plus, he "has an all-girl army that knows what to do. They're foxy as hell and practice kung fu."

He will be missed.

If you're more like "Rudy Ray Who?", you should check out the trailer to Disco Godfather below, another Moore vehicle that is too awesome for your puny mind to comprehend.
