Kanye West All of the Lights video by Hype Williams

I haven't heard of Hype Williams doing anything since...well...since music videos became irrelevant sometime in the early noughties. Maybe before that, actually; I think the last clear memory I have of him doing anything was that first Missy Elliot joint or maybe Ma$e. Obviously he was at his patent leather best in Mo' Money Mo' Problems.

Anyway, I posted this video because the intro with the little girl followed by the neon type is just disgusting and amazing and great and ripped off from Enter the Void's opening credits, video below.

Hip hop is great and totally has a place in music, but come on. MAKE UP SOME OF YOUR OWN SHIT. This isn't even a sample from 20 years ago, this is a film that was released in 2010. Like, last year. If I was Hype Williams, I'd rather sit on my patent leather laurels than be in any way credited with producing this wholly unoriginal cut-and-paste disaster.

Saving grace: that Rihanna's a bit of all right, isn't she?

Uncontacted Amazon Tribe: First ever aerial footage

Jose Carlos Meirelles, an employee of the Brazilian government's native affairs agency FUNAI, leads a BBC film crew into a remote part of the Amazon in order to film one of about 70 uncontacted tribes left in the rainforest.

While he has watched these people for 20 years from the air, recent events have forced his hand, and he brought the film crew with him for the purpose of proving the tribe's existence to the government, who according to Meirelles would rather deny the existence of these natives than take steps to curtail the illegal mining and logging operations which threaten their survival.

I think it's quite amazing that there are even 70 uncontacted tribes left, I thought there would be far less. As a wise fictional pirate captain once quipped, "the world didn't get smaller, there's just less in it."
