Hulu Findings

So, I have become an avid user of Hulu.com and I discovered this documentary on Freestyle Rapping. My question is: When did rap become no longer and free expression of thought, but a compile of insulting each other? From the documentary stated how freestyling was a form of poetry and used to deliver one's thought in a musical way, but in the "competitions" it is more of a "Who can deliver the best insult to the other and 'please the crowd'" contest. It is like Slam Poetry, but you need to rip someone apart lyrically to succeed. Disappointing.

Furthermore, I also rediscover an old cartoon favorite: Inspector Gadget. Funny enough... Penny, niece to the great Inspector, was one step ahead of her time with her "computer book" currently know as "a net book/macbook." What appeared to be "fantasy" in a cartoon actually became "reality."

Hahaha, I heart Hulu!
