The Eastenders Christmas special episodes are always explosive and last years was no exception. The show bidded farewell to one of it’s oldest cast members, Pat Butcher. After 25 years of dedicated service to the square she passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on New Years Eve. Rapper Jester Jacobs has decided to release this timely hip hop eulogy to celebrate and remember her life, from beginning to end. Clocking in at almost 8 minutes in length, we think it does the job well. With Eastenders being one of the most iconic BBC programmes, hopefully even non rap fans may identify with the content. The Huffington Post have already picked up on it.

Life is more fun in real-time. This might seem a tautology, but you’d be surprised how many SXSW hopefuls talks do little more than review recent history, while others speculate on some far-off tech future. We want real-time demonstrations and chaotic fun. We want a panel talk that can practice what it preaches. Our tips for this years Panel Picker include live battles between man and computer, interactive demonstrations WITH LASERS, crowdsourcing experiments and collaborative app-building. There's even the odd meta-Panel, attempting to tweet and trend it’s way into influence. Give them your vote and you won’t just get to watch: you’ll be part of the talk as well.
