• Shock G (Digital Underground) drops crazy freestyle in an alley in Santa Monica (Popkiller.pl)

    We accidentally ran into the legendary Shock G aka Humpty Hump in an alley in Santa Monica, L.A., California and he blessed us with an incredible freestyle. During the 5-minute freestyle "off the top" he revealed for example that he's really homeless now (as rumors said some time go). He also rapped about the history of Digital Underground, putting 2Pac in the game, as well as threw a bunch of hilarious lines he's well known for. Then he went on to perform a tribute to 2Pac "I Ain't Mad At Cha" with the live band House of Vibe, since it was the night of Pac's birthday, June 15/16, 2016. You can watch the performance here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHA1Gh1lxus

  • Massive Underwater Entrance Discovered Off The California Coast

    A massive underwater entrance has been discovered off the Malibu, CA coast at Point Dume which appears to be the Holy Grail of UFO/USO researchers that have been looking for it over the last 40 years. The plateau structure is 1.35 miles x 2.45 miles wide, 6.66 miles from land and the entrance between the support pillars is 2745 feet wide and 630 feet tall. It also has what looks like a total nuclear bomb proof ceiling that is 500 feet thick. The discovery was made by Maxwell, Dale Romero and Jimmy Church, host of FADE to BLACK on the Dark Matter Radio Network on Monday, May 12th 2014 and announced on Facebook, Twitter and Church's radio program the following day.

The plateau structure is 1.35 miles x 2.45 miles wide, 6.66 miles from land and the entrance between the support pillars is 2745 feet wide and 630 feet tall. It also has what looks like a total nuclear bomb proof ceiling that is 500 feet thick. The discovery was made by Maxwell, Dale Romero and Jimmy Church, host of FADE to BLACK on the Dark Matter Radio Network on Monday, May 12th 2014 and announced on Facebook, Twitter and Church's radio program the following day. The underwater base has been a mystery for many years with hundreds of UFO/USO sightings...many with photographs...but the entrance of the base has remained elusive...until now. The entrance can support nuclear sized submarines and massive UFO/USO activity and allow access to different military installations that are inside the US such as the China Lake Naval Base that is in the middle of the Mojave desert and the Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Hawthorne, NV between Las Vegas and Reno. In the photographs you can see its relation to the coastline, Los Angeles and its natural surroundings which to not match up with the structure itself...which is massive in scale. The support pillars to the entrance are over 600 feet tall. Malibu, California, is known the world over for its scenic beauty and as the playground of the rich and famous. Few people know that it is also the land of UFOs. Read more here: http://worldufophotosandnews.org/?p=7330 Special thanks to Mr Dale Romero for sharing the links bellow.

Elon Musk's Boring Company reveals the 'underground buses' pedestrians will use to travel on its tunnel network Musk says the entry hole, staging area and starting tunnel for Boring Machine 1 'Godot' is complete Tunnel will run from LAX to Culver City, Santa Monica, Westwood and Sherman Oaks, Musk pledged He hopes to increase the speed of the boring machine by a factor of ten to dig tunnels across LA Elon Musk also offered a look at a test run of the tunnel's 'electric sleds' in a track used to develop Hyperloop Elon Musk's 'Boring Company' plan to build a network of tunnels under major cities - but so far has only shown car owners using them. Now, the firm has revealed its own vehicle - an underground electric bus. The vehicles, based on the same 'electric sled' that owners will drive their cars onto, have space for seated and standing passengers. They are mainly glass - even through they are designed to travel underground. Musk has come under fire repeatedly from experts claiming it is impractical and would be impossible to implement. Earlier this month the firm published an FAQ on its website outlining how it plans to achieve his vision. 'The key to making this work is increasing tunneling speed and dropping costs by a factor of 10 or more – this is the goal of the Boring Company,' it says. 'Unlike flying cars, tunnels are weatherproof, out of sight and won't fall on your head,' it explains. 'A large network of road tunnels many levels deep would fix congestion in any city, no matter how large it grew (just keep adding levels)' Musk recently revealed it has begun work on its first tunnel beneath Los Angeles, which will stretch from LAX to Sherman Oaks when complete. It has been just six months since Musk first revealed his radical plan to beat LA's notorious gridlock – and now, the entry hole, staging area, and starting tunnel for the first Boring Machine, 'Godot,' is complete, Musk says. Critics have slammed the plan as completely unrealistic as it would require a mass of permits and huge disruption as hundreds of tunnels and access 'lifts' are dug. It is also unclear if the machine has actually been used to dig anything - with images of an electric 'sled' having been filmed in another nearby tunnel SpaceX has been using to test pods for Musk's Hyperloop. However, Musk says the area is ripe for innovation. 'Currently, tunnels are really expensive to dig, with some projects costing as much as $1 billion per mile,' the new FAQ says. 'In order to make a tunnel network feasible, tunneling costs must be reduced by a factor of more than 10.' The key to this is smaller tunnels that can be dug more quickly, the FAQ says. 'To build a one-lane road tunnel, the tunnel diameter must be approximately 28 feet. 'By placing vehicles on a stabilized electric sled, the diameter can be reduced to less than 14 feet. Reducing the diameter in half reduces tunneling costs by 3-4 times. 'Secondly, increase the speed of the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM). 'TBMs are super slow. 'A snail is effectively 14 times faster than a soft-soil TBM. 'Our goal is to defeat the snail in a race.' Musk envisions a new breed of smaller, more powerful TBMs with triple the power of current machines that can tunnel continuously. 'In the United States, there is virtually no investment in tunneling Research and Development (and in many other forms of construction). 'Thus, the construction industry is one of the only sectors in our economy that has not improved its productivity in the last 50 years,' it concludes. In a series of posts today, Musk revealed a glimpse at the processes that are bringing the first tunnel to life, in the first stages of a network that will 'cover all of greater LA.' Musk also offered a look at a test run of the tunnel's 'electric sleds,' which will ferry cars at 125 miles per hour to bring passengers from Westwood to LAX in just five minutes. Last week, Musk solicited help on Twitter to come up with names for his boring machine. And, after a flurry of suggestions ranging from 'Snoop Dug' to 'Tunnely McTunnelface,' Musk settled on a theme of 'poems & plays.' Boring Machine 1 has now officially been dubbed 'Godot.' In several photos and videos shared on social media today, Musk revealed that work on Godot is well underway, with the entry hole, staging area, and starting tunnel complete. 'First tunnel for The Boring Company begins,' Musk wrote, alongside a photo of the entryway. 'Full length of first tunnel will run from LAX to Culver City, Santa Monica, Westwood, and Sherman Oaks. 'Future tunnels will cover all of greater LA.' In the posts, he also gave a look at the boring machine segments being lowered into the starter tunnel. These are now 'going through final assembly,' according to Musk, and will eventually be 'a few hundred feet long.' And, Musk shared a video of the rotating cutterhead, which is currently operating at standard industry speed Music: http://www.bensound.com
