Animated 2Pac Interview

The single most influential and captivating Hip-Hop artist of our time, Tupac Shakur has left a legacy that still overshadows the musical landscape. Blank on Blank brought a new angle to the man’s words by animating a very honest interview with the deceased artist. As a fan, I’ve heard damn near every interview the man has done in his career. But, I must say the images add shade to his words, casting new meaning and emotion to his offerings. Nice little video. Enjoy.

250lb Bodybuilder vs. 150lb Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt

Muscle isn’t the most important weapon in a fighter’s arsenal especially when technical prowess can overcome physical advantages like size and strength. If you know how to properly maneuver and divert damage in an attack, you can ultimately dominate the affair. When this bodybuilder, Lance Bachelor, faces off with Jiu Jitsu black belt Pedro Sauer, it becomes a matter of technician versus athlete, skill against muscle, brain facing brawn. Sauer showcases a cool hand in the mouth of fire by using technique to best a rather intimidating brawler.

Caution: don’t assume you can just kick a bodybuilder’s ass because you took karate lessons when you were little. That’s a surefire way to get your face broken. Sauer is an 8th degree Gracie Jiu Jitsu red and black belt. He’s been training in various martial arts since he was five years old and practiced with the Gracie family including Royce Gracie, arguably the most influential figure in the history of modern mixed martial arts, on a daily basis. It took a lifetime of training for him to learn how to operate against bigger and more powerful men intent on punching his head off.

Nonetheless, enjoy the video.

Geek Heaven: Goku vs. Superman (No, For Real)

This video just reawakened my inner nerd. As a kid, I watched every episode of Dragonball Z I could get my filthy little hands on. The epic fights, the magical blonde Super Saiyan hair, the energy oras and levels. The long, drawn out expressions that took up half the episode. God, it was truly awesome. I don’t know anyone my age that isn’t familiar with the anime series.

Then. there’s Supes. The God of the comic book world. The prototype that can’t and won’t be improved. I mean, the guy is sheer perfection down to the curl. Initially, I saw Superman the same as a lot of other comic book heads who chose to spend their time on other heroes because he was just too omnipotent. Where’s the excitement when you know for a fact Superman is going to win every time? But, in actuality, Superman is more than an crime-fighting alien. He’s a symbol of equality, justice, and peace. Everything else was just a bonus.

But, the question was always who would win in a fight, Goku or Superman? I thought I knew the answer. Boy was I wrong! I stumbled upon this YouTube video and it enlightened me on all things related to these two mega warriors. I just had to share. Weigh in on this clash of the titans and tell me what you think.

Dallas Buyers Club. 12 Years A Slave. Captain Phillips. This Is The End. The Great Gatsby. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Thor: The Dark World. Gravity. 

That’s a tough line-up to follow. I hope 2014 is cool under pressure. Let’s see some trailers for up and coming movies set for release next year and see how they stack up. Let me know what you think in the comments.
