Today in Awesome Jobs You Didn’t Know Existed and Had You Known They Existed Then Maybe You Wouldn’t Have Gone To Dental School To Follow In Your Father’s Footsteps And Instead Would Have Followed Your Own Dreams, Like Becoming One Of The Limp Bizkit “Rollin’” Girls, And Maybe Then You Wouldn’t Have To Drink A Magnum of Barefoot Chardonnay Each Night Just To Feel Something Because Maybe Then You Wouldn’t Be Drowning In Mediocrity And Goddamnit, Mom, Why Couldn’t You Have Let Me Be My Own Person, I Told You Hip-Hop Was Here To Stay, You Never Understood Me And You Never Will!! News: ASL interpreters are increasingly being hired to work at festivals and concerts and the resulting videos are transfixing. Take Amber Galloway Gallego‘s interpretation of Kendrick Lamar’s set at Lollapalooza: her performance is as spirited and passionate as the rapper’s own. Watch her translation of “F*ckin’ Problems” below, which may be slightly NSFW. I mean, not only do you have Kendrick talking about how he loves f#%king “bad bitches,” but there’s also an interpreter turning it all into some very suggestive hand motions (especially for the line “girl I know you want this dick”) so… proceed with caution.
