The Questionable Victory of Eminem

Last Sunday were the MTV EMAs 2017. With winners on the night including Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes and Kendrick Lamar, one of the more surprising victors was Eminem, who bagged the first award of the evening for Best Hip-Hop.

In his defence, he did drop a single two days before and opened the night in Eminem style.

They are beaming mathematical music from 33 artists into space. The transmission will travel over 70 trillion miles to one of Earth’s nearest habitable planets in the hope of reaching intelligent extra-terrestrials. Even if they respond, or not, someone sure is having a celestial party.

It represents everything that is wrong in this world.

Stunning Film of The Land of Ice and Fire

Wow. Just wow. It’s almost hard to believe this is real footage and not some CGI fantasy. You truly get lost in it and question how Iceland is even a part of this planet. Artists, Jonathan Besler, Kevin May, and Florian Gampert recorded this breath-taking drone footage of the Nordic island nation using various devices such as a Phantom 4 Drone, a Sony A7SII, and a Nikon D850. A stunning portrayal of the land of ice and fire.
