Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA Breaks Down His Kung Fu Samples by Film and Song
Kung-fu’s influence on hip hop has been around since the ’70s, when B-boys busted Bruce Lee moves while break-dancing. But in 1993, gritty rap supergroup the Wu-Tang Clan released Enter the Wu-Tang (36-Chambers), the first chart-topping album to kick up raw rhymes with dialog sampled from underground Hong Kong flicks. RZA gave WIRED the dope on Wu-Tang’s cinematic source material and sounded off on a selection of rare movie clips.

Vom Viewmaster zu Beowulf
Robert Zemeckis’ “Die Legende von Beowulf” verbindet das ältere 3D-Kinobild mit den neusten Techniken der komplett digitalen Objekt- und Bewegungssimulation. Auf diese Weise entsteht eine Art integrierter Holo-Film, der das Erzählkino mit seinen zeitlichen Bildmontagen ablöst. Fortschritt oder Rückschritt?

Aaaaaw. Mit dem Delorian, Hoverboards und der beknackten Dampflok.

Fox News Porn
Fox News Porn is a collection of raunchy outtakes from the Fox “News” Network, where hypocritical prigs like Bill O’Reilly revel in prurience while condemning it. This condemnation is largely indistinguishable from a celebration — as when Sean Hannity visits a brothel and asks snotty, explicit questions of the workers there while his camera lovingly pans across their bare flesh.

Copyright Infringement Nation: we are all mega-crooks
By the end of the day, John has infringed the copyrights of twenty emails, three legal articles, an architectural rendering, a poem, five photographs, an animated character, a musical composition, a painting, and fifty notes and drawings. All told, he has committed at least eighty-three acts of infringement and faces liability in the amount of $12.45 million (to say nothing of potential criminal charges). There is nothing particularly extraordinary about John’s activities. Yet if copyright holders were inclined to enforce their rights to the maximum extent allowed by law, he would be indisputably liable for a mind-boggling $4.544 billion in potential damages each year. And, surprisingly, he has not even committed a single act of infringement through P2P file sharing.

Daniel Düsentriebs Real Life Helferlein
Das Helferlein von Daniel Düsentrieb gibt’s jetzt auch in echt, leuchtet sogar in 7 Farben und hat einen USB-Anschluß. Nennt sich aber „Baby Moppel“, was ja auch irgendwie ein unglücklicher Name ist und noch dazu wird Disney oder Düsentrieb mit keinem Wort erwähnt. Tss…
