Be still your bleat-ing heart, Erik. What Luke meant to say is, "... haggis ain't baaaad."
Today was fun. I was giving archery lessons at the club today and had the pleasure of introducing a pair of 9-year-old twins to the sport.
I've been fighting with two rack mount servers, both trying to determine power issues and get a new system installed. Programmers demanding a full 8 core server for a test system that will only be used to get an app approved for the apple store.
Finally got the rails installed, the new (old - they wanted a new system, they get a refurbished one) server installed, and starting the host system install now.
I'd rather have had @Sara-s's day. I haven't done archery in years, other than mini-crossbows in the back yard.
I went out for dinner the other night to a local Vietnamese place that, among other things, offers a number of different pho . They all have anglo-friendly names and I wanted to order the "pho sizzle" (pho with char-grilled chunks of flank steak instead of the shaved raw beef... whole new flavor dimension.) Somehow, I ended up ordering the "fo' shizzle" and getting an embarrassed giggle from the Vietnamese waitress. FML, as they say.
Fo rizzle? Lol
Snoop Dog (or whatever his name is this week) started it. As in, " Fo' shizzle my nizzle." ("Certainly, my (word that will get me in trouble but is an ethnic term beginning with "'n'")).
Huh. Well, Snoop Dog popularized it and I learned something tonight.
I agree. Snoop owns it now.
Sounds like Cameo (and others) um ... borrowed ... pretty heavily on lyrics and rhythm for "Word Up."
The Korn version is better than the original, imho, so here it is:
Frankie Smith wrote his in 1979. Cameo was 1986. Interesting wardrobe in the video.
I remember hearing the Double Dutch Bus on white-boy radio (NY station) in the '80s when the whole rap thing started to go more mainstream. (Rapper's Paradise Delight, Funky Cold Medina, etc.)
As for the wardrobe... it was the '80s and videos were new. So was spandex.
Double Dutch Bus was 1980. Rap truly hit mainstream in 1985 with Run-DMC. Funky Cold Medina wasn't until 1989. Coolio was 1990.
Just for fun:
The first song containing rap elements to hit #1 in the USA was Blondie's 'Rapture'.
I knew the one about Blondie. Otherwise, I was just giving examples of what came to mind without burning too many brain cells trying to recall.
First rap song to chart:
Where are my roller skates?
Ah, memories. But sorry, better version here:
The long version. No skating. Some classic moves and lotsa bad fashion.
Yeah, he needed a good slap for coming up with that.
Starting my new job today; didn't sleep much last night. Finally got smart and chatted with God and fell to sleep at 2 am.
Everyday above ground is a great day. Thank you God for another one.
