New Music: J. Cole “Want You To Fly”

Vari… vari

Yeah…

Yeah, ugh

God is real and he using me for a bigger purpose
So fuck the world that will have you think that a nigga worthless
Sometimes I think that these verses can help a person way more than the ones they readin’ in churches on days of worship
No disrespect to the lord and savior that ain’t just ego
I just observed that them words no longer relate to people
Cause modern times be flooded with dollar signs
And social media stuntin’ my niggas just want to shine
They frame of mind so far removed from the days and times of nazareth
Like these days is a labyrinth and the maze so elaborate,
We barely get through half of it fore it’s to late,
My niggas is felons from sellin’ weight in more than two states
Two-two in his waist before he can even shoot straight
Quick to draw on you like Aaron McGruder, nigga, who fake?
All of that to say maybe the hood need a new faith
A new story about a boy from not too far where you stay.

—  J. Cole

HBO has released the trailer for Beware the Slenderman, a documentary about the true story of two 12-year-old girls who stabbed a classmate 19 times in the name of Slenderman, the popular internet character, in 2014.

Directed by Irene Taylor Brodsky, the film will premiere on HBO on January 23.

Beware the Slenderman tells the story of the internet’s elusive Boogeyman and two 12-year-old girls who would kill for him. Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier lured their best friend into the woods, stabbed her 19 times, then set out on an odyssey to meet the tall and faceless man known online as Slenderman. Shot over 18 months with heartbreaking access to the families of the would-be murderers, the film plunges deep down the rabbit hole of their crime, a Boogeyman and our society’s most impressionable consumers of media. The entrance to the internet can quickly lead us to its dark basement, within just a matter of clicks. How much do we hold children responsible for what they find there?

VICE Offers An Intimate Look At The Lives Of Transgender Children
"We hope that viewers walk away from this episode feeling differently."

I haven’t seen it yet… VICE usually does a good job of going beyond the norm in coverage, though i’m afraid this will follow the usual tropes. (Maybe I’ve just seen too many of these and I’m jaded.)

HBO will confront the Slenderman

HBO’s upcoming documentary Beware the Slenderman isn’t about uncovering the existence of the Slenderman. Rather, its primary focus is on the 2014 case in which two then-12-year-old girls who were charged with attempted first-degree homicide after stabbing their friend 19 times. When asked why they did it, they said it was to prove that the Slenderman was real. 

However, Beware the Slenderman isn’t presented as an indictment of the two girls — it’s a horrifying look at the whole problem.

Wow..once again I am speechless. 4 Your Eyez Only Documentary was the most heartfelt and extremely real docs I have watched in quite some time (and I’ve watched alot) the amount of emotions I felt watching this film was crazy. Hearing his words and the people that live in these urban communities was something you can’t make up and write a script for. THIS IS REALL SHIT. Never knew it was possible to love and respect someone even more. Thank you Jermaine so much. Honestly.
