Briefcaseit Network Presents the Harlem Shake in HD:
About the Harlem Shake HD
“Harlem Shake”, not to be confused with the hip hop dance style, is the title of a 2012 heavy bass instrumental track produced by Baauer. In February 2013, the song spawned a series of dance videos that begin with a masked individual dancing alone in a group before suddenly cutting to a wild dance party featuring the entire group. Despite what the name suggests, the videos present a wide range of hip hop dances, including the Bernie,Twerking as well as improvisations.
“Harlem Shake” by Baauer, the stage name of American music producer Harry Rodrigues, was uploaded to YouTube on August 23rd, 2012. The lyric “do the Harlem Shake” is a sample from the 2001 track “Miller Time” by Philadelphia party rap crew, Plastic Little. The lyric was taken from an incident in member Jayson Musson’s life where he got into a fight and finished by getting up and doing the dance. Bauuer’s song was met with positive reception from electronica & trap music blogs, as well as other artists including Diplo, Brodinski, and Flosstradamus. On January 30th, 2013, video blogger Filthy_Frank uploaded an episode that opens with four people dressed in latex suits dancing to Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” (shown below, right).

The Necronomicon originated as a fictional book in the works of H.P. Lovecraft, and grew into an extended literary in-joke as other horror writers organically added to the Cthulhu mythos. According to Lovecraft, it was written by Abdul Alhazred, ‘a mad Arab poet of the Yemen’, in 950 A.D. in Damascus. In many of the stories written by Lovecraft and his successors, merely reading or possessing the Necronomicon leads to insanity …or worse.
How Lovecraft conceived the name Necronomicon is not clear — Lovecraft said that the title came to him in a dream. Although some have suggested that Lovecraft was influenced primarily byRobert W. Chambers‘ collection of short stories The King in Yellow, which centers on a mysterious and disturbing play in book form, Lovecraft is not believed to have read that work until 1927.
Donald R. Burleson has argued that the idea for the book was derived from Nathaniel Hawthorne, though Lovecraft himself noted that “mouldy hidden manuscripts” were one of the stock features ofGothic literature.
Lovecraft wrote that the title, as translated from the Greek language, meant “an image of the law of the dead”: nekros – νεκρός (“dead”), nomos – νόμος (“law”), eikon – εικών (“image”). Robert M. Price notes that the title has been variously translated by others as “Book of the names of the dead”, “Book of the laws of the dead”, “Book of dead names” and “Knower of the laws of the dead”. S. T. Joshi states that Lovecraft’s own etymology is “almost entirely unsound. The last portion of it is particularly erroneous, since -ikon is nothing more than a neuter adjectival suffix and has nothing to do with eikõn (image).” Joshi translates the title as “Book considering (or classifying) the dead.”
Lovecraft was often asked about the veracity of the Necronomicon, and always answered that it was completely his invention. In a letter to Willis Conover, Lovecraft elaborated upon his typical answer:
Now about the “terrible and forbidden books” — I am forced to say that most of them are purely imaginary. There never was any Abdul Alhazred or Necronomicon, for I invented these names myself. Robert Bloch devised the idea of Ludvig Prinn and his De Vermis Mysteriis, while the Book of Eibon is an invention of Clark Ashton Smith’s. Robert E. Howard is responsible for Friedrich von Junzt and his Unaussprechlichen Kulten…. As for seriously-written books on dark, occult, and supernatural themes — in all truth they don’t amount to much. That is why it’s more fun to invent mythical works like the Necronomicon and Book of Eibon.
Reinforcing the book’s fictionalization, the name of the book’s supposed author, Abdul Alhazred, is not even a grammatically correct Arabic name. The name “Abdul” simply means “the worshiper/slave of…”. Standing alone, it would make no sense, as Alhazred is not a last name in the Western sense, but a reference to a person’s place of birth.

Juan Rogelio was born in 1987 as a product of The Bronx. Ever since he could remember jazz, rnb, hip hop and gospel boomed the house. He believes the impression of the music took it’s toll on his character. His mom was a poet also and he feels it was only right for the art of rhyme to flow through his blood. In 1998 he moved to the beautiful city of Atlanta and took his music to whole new level. He networked with some of the best hip hop artist in the local rap game, since then he has been on a mission to create a genre of his own music. His mission now is to be a breath of fresh air to the hip hop community. He feels music changes lives and for you to be a true artist you gotta ” Put ya soul in it”. Originally from the Bronx but now in Atlanta for over 13 years. Most people say he is well rounded and has a strong east coast bar with a southern business mind frame.
Known in the streets of Atlanta by the alias Lyrical Terror, Juan Rogelio And Lyrical for short. He believes that dreams can come true and everything happens for a reason if pursued. The game itself has been the same over a number of years and has been missing an impact ever since Tupac and Biggie perished. His quest is to “fill those shoes and it’s going to be journey, but if I didn’t love what I did then I couldn’t in no way or form call myself a legend”. At the end of the day fans know whats real, so when you see him and wonder why he looks so chill its because the real deal is back.
