Another rare New Orleans bounce music classic track, N.O. Block Party (aka Hot Boy Hot Girl) by Partners N Crime (PNC from Pump Tha Party) featuring DJ Jubilee. The Mardi Gras Indian in the picture is significant because of the way this song is sung, it's based on the Mardi Gras classic Iko Iko. "Iko Iko" is a New Orleans song that tells of a parade collision between two "tribes" of Mardi Gras Indians. The lyrics are derived from Indian chants and popular catchphrases. The song, under the original title "Jock-A-Mo", was written in 1954 by James "Sugar Boy" Crawford in New Orleans, but has spread so widely that many people take it to be a much older folk song. The story tells of a "spy dog" or lookout for one band of Indians encountering the "flag boy" or guidon carrier for another band. He threatens to set the flag on fire. Here are the lyrics (I removed some sections) [Kangol Slim] My Hot Girl, and yo Hot Girl, Were sittin' by the Bayou, My Hot Girl, told yo Hot Girl, I got a Hot Boy that is fire, Talkin' bout a Hot Boy [Hot Girl] Hot Boy [Hot Girl] Every where we go [Say what?] Upper Label Take Fo, and now you know how it go, Representin' Down-South, Fa'sho, [Break it down] [D.J.

"Indians have reacted with anger and disgust over video footage of a young woman being sexually assaulted by a laughing mob of more than a dozen men in a busy street outside a bar in north-east India. Not only did no one intervene for up to 45 minutes during the attack, but an off-duty TV journalist filmed the incident on his phone and called a cameraman to join him. The footage was then broadcast on news channels, prompting a debate on women's safety in India and whether journalists have a duty to help in such situations."

B&S Ball refers to a dance held in rural Australia for single young adults who can sometimes live up to a day's drive from their nearest neighbor. The "B&S" stands for "bachelors and spinsters" and the balls are notoriously drunken and raucous. Most of us take contact with the opposite sex for granted, but for these people, it's not always so easy. We drove up to the B&S ball in Elmore, Victoria. Our guides were Ashlie, a shy young country girl hoping to win her second consecutive wet t-shirt competition without the aid of alcohol; and Glenn, an abattoir worker looking for love.
