I don’t know too much about the entity known as Ryan Celsius. I know that Ryan Celsius is a lover and manipulator of Hip Hop, Trip Hop, Glitch Hop, not to mention all sorts of experimental and vaporware musics. Ryan Celsius takes video from popular media, warps and edits it, and then adds music that he has also granted his golden touch to. The result is beyond parody, homage, or mashup. Ryan Celsius is this time’s end result of the interpreting and refashioning of already made art into something new. Andy Warhol would be proud…and pissed off he didn’t know music well enough so that he could have made that next step.
It is no surprise that as gaming and eSports has expanded in legitimacy and coverage on television, internet, and podcast, so has representation in it by peoples of all races, genders, cultures, and ethnicities. As there has been an increase in diversity in the participants, so should there be a fair share in the leadership and management in the business side; this is where Divertega comes in. Divertega is an organisation which seeks to be a voice and unifying agent of diversity in all aspects of gaming and eSports. Divertega hopes to make sure that there is no underrepresented groups of people in gaming and eSports, while promoting competitive and fair play.
