And now for something completely different ...

Not the usual thing I post on my blog, but I just wanted to share this here for anyone with an interest in musical talents, alternative news and something to make you smile and laugh a little (hopefully).

I've been wanting to post this on the blog for a while but it always gets put to the back of my mind, so today I will share with you a talented man, a relative of Alex's - Hugo Farrant and friends who have created Juice Media: Rap News.

Taken from the website, Hugo

"fills the role of the amiable Rap News anchorman, Robert Foster -
as well as all the guests who appear on the show.
Hailing from Branksome in the UK, Hugo is a prolific rhymer and orator,
MC and spoken-word poet who regularly graces the stages and
festivals of Melbourne. Having spent six years rhyming and rapping, he now
co-writes ~TheJuiceMedia: Rap News."

"TheJuiceMedia Rap News - the news source for the discerning viewer,
delivering a bulletin to restore your faith in the fourth estate; make you nod
your head to the beat, even as you shake it in disbelief"

"TheJuiceMedia also broadcasts key Indigenous views from Australia,
providing a valuable and growing archive of otherwise-marginalised Aboriginal voices."

For a while now we have enjoyed watching these rap news videos online, they really do deliver an alternative look at some of the crazy stories you read about or see in the news. The latest one features the recent Wiki-leaks news story with a very special guest appearance later in the video! It's now reached an audience of over 112,000 mostly by word of mouth, twitter, etc, etc

He lives and works in Australia now, but is from Dorset and also did a very funny rap about Branksome a couple of years ago.

Please check them out if you like alternative news, rap music, poetry, or just to see a real talent. Hope you like them too.

Here's the latest video on YouTube
