Ryan Staake x Booka Shade – 360 Panoramic Music Video

Not too long ago we posted up a video of Jonas Ginter who mounted 8 GoPro cameras above his bicycle to create a “tiny world.” In similar aesthetic, Ryan Staake uses the same model of camera rigging and goes up in the sky for this new music video for German house duo Booka Shade entitled “Crossing Borders.”

Dave Brockie (aka Oderus Urungus) – Found dead in Home

According to a number of online sources, Dave Brockie the lead singer of GWAR, also known as Oderus Urungus was found dead in his home Sunday, March 23rd, 2014 at approximately 7pm.

Fierce Kingz – Yo Majesty

For this post, we decided to get a little bit funky with it. We have a newly released song entitled “Yo Majesty” from a rap duo who go by the name of the Fierce Kingz. The evidently schizophrenic artists rap about medieval and royal cultures using what we think is correct terminology and also dress up to fit the part. The song reminds us of something like BANGS who had that hit single “Take U to Da Movies” or the guys from the comedy group Workaholics who have a parody rap group called “The Wizards” with songs such as “Potion Mixin“. Love it or hate it, we think you’ll get a laugh. Watch the peculiar video “Yo Majesty” after the jump!
