Flying Lotus - More (feat. Anderson .Paak) MV [directed by Shinichiro Watanabe]



Flying Lotus and Shinichiro Watanabe’s creative kinship was cultivated while working on BLADE RUNNER: BLACK OUT 2020, the mutual respect led to them collaborating on this video.

Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Space Dandy) had this to say about their connection - “Flying Lotus’ sound and Anderson Paak’s rap on this track are just incredible. Their work greatly inspired me to direct this music video for them with some of the finest anime talents in Japan. Flying Lotus is such an amazing talent, so it is a great honor to work with Flying Lotus again after our collaboration on BLADE RUNNER: BLACK OUT 2022. We like working with each other so much that we are already collaborating on another series project of mine called CAROLE & TUESDAY. Our creative team worked really hard to create this video for Lotus and we hope we did justice to this wonderful new track. Please enjoy!"

A judge ordered a “730 evaluation” for Britney Spears and her family at conservatorship hearing




On Friday, Britney Spears made a rare court appearance with her parents. Since sensitive subjects were going to be discussed such as Spears’ medical records, her two sons, and her trade secrets the court room was cleared and closed off to the public.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny wrote in an order afterward that all had agreed on a “730 expert evaluation,” a process that is usually used to determine the mental health and competence of a parent in a divorce case.

It was not made clear who would be examined, and whether it would relate to Spears’ relationship to her two sons or her parents’ oversight of her.

#FreeBritney supporters waited outside the steps of the courthouse but Spears and her parents entered from a private entrance. Britney was also seen leaving the courthouse barefoot.

On Wednesday, Spears was also granted a temporary restraining order against Sam Lufti. He must remain 200 yards away from Britney and not make any “disparaging public statements” about Spears, her family, or anyone in her inner circle.

“In the last week alone, Mr. Lutfi has made dozens of disparaging and threatening comments on social media and in interviews,” says the recent filing against him. “He has sent threatening texts to Ms. Spears’ family, he has leaked confidential information, and is considering leaking more of Ms. Spears’ (actual and fabricated) private information.”

A court hearing for September 18th has been set to address the ongoing matter.

Columbia Business School Professor Talks About Daenerys's Leadership Abilities




- Columbia University professor Bruce Craven (who wrote a book called Win or Die: Leadership Secrets from Game of Thrones) argues that Dany's ability to build a loyal following is unparalled
- He calls her a "loyal freedom fighter" unafraid to confront danger to protect those who follow her
- He points to Missandei's line "she is the queen we chose"
- However he argues that her weakness is that she doesn't know what her purpose is. If she wants to protect the vulnerable, she shouldn't care about who sits the Iron Throne, but if her goal is the throne she must confront that she may be harming vulnerable people.
