“To The Beat”: Anderson .Paak X Kurt Hugo Schneider

What happens when you make music with random things you can find?  I tell you, you get an amazing rendition of “Come Down” by Anderson .Paak.  The company go90 got together with .Paak and Kurt Hugo Schneider and made a nice remix of Anderson’s hit “Come Down” using random things they could find.  Scissors, hands, and a flashlight just to name a few, are some of the “instruments” that are used in the making of the song.  Of course there is a bass and a kick drum, but the duo also used a zipper on a sweatshirt.  Just plain genius.

Check out the video below.  Enjoy how the song is remixed and let us know what you think in the comment section below.

Stranger Things Season 2 (Trailer)

First off, Thank you Netflix.

The first trailer for Stranger Things 2 is here. It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still in shock from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.

Set to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” the trailer shows a handful of supernatural events that are still causing havoc all over the town of Hawkins, Indiana, despite the group already taking down the Demogorgon at the end of season 1. With the trailer not giving away too much information, we’ll have to wait and see what kind of surprises the squad is in for.

Check out the trailer down below and let us know what you think of the trailer.

Still KD: Through the Noise

First of all I wanna say that this is an amazing thing to watch.  Being a huge fan of basketball, I just love seeing a good person win.  With all the backlash Durant got, he still went out and worked.  Can’t help but appreciate a person that puts in the work and gets the award.  He deserved the finals MVP and the “chip”.  So check out this documentary about KD working “Through the Noise”.
