Valais blacknosed sheep. Although the earliest mention of it dates back to 1400, this large, docile mountain sheep was first recognised as a separate breed in 1962. It has adapted particularly well to life in the high Swizz mountains and grazes even on the steepest, stoniest slopes. The black patches on its nose, eyes, ears, knees, hocks and feet and otherwise light woolly coats make it quite unmistakeable.

Earlier Swizz Beatz and Just Blaze had a battle on IG Live, which turned out to be an epic occasion for the culture. Both producers have worked with Jay Z extensively and given him multiple hit beats over the years; as well as each having extensive producing careers beyond Hov.

The battle is well-worth the watch, and you will be rewarded around the two hour 27 minute mark with an unreleased Hov/DMX/Nas/Jadkiss track. Goddamn!!

Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland. Literally Rivendell.

J. R. R. Tolkien hiked to the Lauterbrunnen valley while on a trip to the Continent in 1911. The wonderful landscape of the valley later provided the concept and pictorial model for his sketches and watercolours of the fictitious valley of Rivendell, the dwelling place of Elrond Half-elven and his people.
