DUST Explains George Clinton’s Role In Afrofuturism New Animated Video [Watch]

first_imgDUST, an online media company focused on all things science fiction, has recently rolled out a new series. Titled Afrofuturism, the short videos within the collection explore how specific black artists and figures helped shape afrofuturism, an aesthetic that combines science fiction, African history, magical realism, with the past, present, and future experiences of being black in our society. For their newest installment, DUST has produced a new video focused on George Clinton. The short, vibrant video is narrated by Little Simz and looks at Clinton’s out-of-this-world aesthetic and impact on music. Previous segments of Afrofuturism have focused on Sun Ra and Star Trek’s Uhura, and episodes on Jimi Hendrix and Missy Elliot are slated to come out in the future. Check out the new video below, courtesy of DUST.[H/T Okayplayer]last_img read more

Cameroon Coach Angry at Traffic Delays

first_imgCameroon coach Hugo Broos complained of team buses arriving late and then getting stuck in traffic as he vented his anger over the organisation of the Confederations Cup yesterday.Broos called on organisers to sort things out for next year’s World Cup, saying he had twice been angered by logistical glitches. “We have a programme, we train at a given time and when you arrive at the hotel and don’t have dinner until 10 o’clock in the evening, it’s really unpleasant,” he said.“I think things must be reviewed for the World Cup next year… How are you going to move teams around from the hotel to the training stadium to the match stadium?”Broos said the African champions had arrived one hour late for their training session in Moscow after their bus got stuck in traffic.He said there was a similar incident in St Petersburg, Russia’s second city, on Tuesday when the bus turned up 45 minutes late at the hotel and got further delayed in more traffic.”The Belgian coach made his comments after a Russian journalist asked why his team had turned up late for training and for a news conference and sarcastically reminded him that today’s match against Australia would be at 6pm local time.“I’m very glad you asked the question because I can tell you it’s not our fault,” replied Broos, whose side lost their opening game 2-0 against Chile in Moscow on Sunday.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
