Video of the Day: Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra Performs Fantastic Renditions of Classic Hip-Hop Tracks


Polish orchestra conductor Radzimir Debski, also known as JIMEK, wins the award for best encore ever. This is the best video on the entire Internet today as far as I’m concerned.

Debski and the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra perform a 30-song medley of hip-hop classics (and one original piece) as an encore following concerts at the Polish Nation Radio Orchestra Concert Hall in Katowice, Poland. I love that this is edited together using mostly footage shot by fans in the audience.

Watch the video below!

“Happy Breakfast” by Artist Gary Card

“Happy Breakfast” is a psychedelic zine by set designer and artist Gary Card. Filled with colourful and chaotic images that blur the line between cute and creepy, what began as a commission for Japanese magazine Them, has turned into something of an ongoing experiment thanks to London-based publishers Katie Bagley and Ferry Gouw of New World International.
