He pursued a solo path two years later and attracted a special attention from the rap world when he debuted Hai Thế Giới (Two Worlds) and Khu Tao Sống (Where I Live) which he collaborated with young rapper Karik. But the rap hit that brought him fame was Buddha in 2012. … [Read more...] about Rap makes its way to national TV
Britain has its own black comedy circuit, which exists beyond the mainstream and has its own superstars. I have been a comedy critic for 10 years and had never visited Kojo's Comedy Fun House in London until last weekend (thus demonstrating Yashere's point about the white middle-class bias of UK comedy). A three-time winner of the best male comedian at the Black Comedy Awards, Kojo spearheads a fast-growing circuit that's "giving our community a way to express themselves other than music", he tells me. His West End club night is broadcast on MTV; guests have included Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle. And it is to America, and not to his Real McCoy forebears, that Kojo looks for inspiration. "For me," he says, "New York is the mecca of comedy." … [Read more...] about Heard the one about the black standups?
“Trustees found it hard to imagine circumstances in which this broadcast at any time or on any day would not have given rise to significant unjustified offence,” said the BBC Trust in its ruling. Obviously it’s hard to judge without having heard the episode. But it’s not beyond my imagination to conceive of a time, or a day, when a less lickspittle Britain might have let mild monarch-ribbing pass. The 1970s, say, when sitcoms more closely resembled Citizen Smith, about a (hopeless) Marxist revolutionary, and pop culture squawked “God save the Queen / The fascist regime” at us. Or indeed the 1990s, when British art was Sensation, theatre was in-yer-face, and bedazzlement with the ruling class seemed like yesterday’s news. … [Read more...] about Not heard the one about the Queen: why don’t comedians criticise the monarchy?
The rest of this pilot episode nimbly connects other early '80s dots, including a great story from the children of engineer Jerry Lawson. He's largely credited with developing cartridge-based gaming while making the otherwise unsuccessful Fairchild Channel F console. Some of the episode's stories—particularly that of Ms. Pac-Man's origin as a "speed-up kit"—won't be news to savvier game-history fans. But they are at least told in polished, humorous fashion, and their montage sequences' pixelated art are a clever touch. Join the Nintendo Fun Club today! But let's get back to Heineman—her experience in the games industry, as far as High Score is concerned, is relegated to her victory in a Space Invaders tournament. The series makes no mention of Bard's Tale, Wasteland, or even Heineman being hired as a 16-year-old game-studio programmer. And as the series rolls along, more lapses in game-history storytelling emerge. … [Read more...] about review: Netflix’s story of gaming’s “golden age” is honestly solid
