So the other day, I check MySpace. My friend Nikki left me a video in my comments. it was a song that, until that day, i had not heard for at least a better part of decade and half. while i was living in Ohio, somehow, when we got on the topic of old school rap i would always bring this song up. i would always get blank stares. people would look at me as if i was insane, and of course, since i could never remember who the artist was it made it all the more difficult. and i was adament i was not going crazy. so i would sing the hook for them:
B stands for
Bronco, Benz, BMW, Bass,
Bangles and a pair of bars.
When you see us pullin up down the ave
you'll act like we are stars.
We're not tryin to make a joke,
We're just tryin to make it known,
that people of the world
that we call B Girls
Like Bars on a Cadillac Brougham.
And i would go on and on on how i know that the song "B girls" actually existed. I was not crazy. I swear. So I began to think it was a local thing, a song only played in the Metro Detroit area. Then, as if by miracle, it appeared in my comments. With videoy goodness. And it was good.
So anyhow, I have been listening to it intently, and obsessivly for last few days, and it makes me smile every time I do. takes me waaaay back. well, for those of you who wish to hear/see the marvel that once was "Young n da Restless - B Girls"(click here). Ahhh, the good ol' days.
also, i googled the hell out the song, and the artist, i wanted to know what the fuck bars on a cadillac brougham meant. there is nothing on these people. the only lyrics you can find are just bs that people typed on a discussion board. it's almost as if myself, and a small sect of people around the coutry were the only ones ever exposed to this song and government cover up went into effect shortly thereafter. hrmm... strange things are afoot at the circle k.
on a totally unrelated note. after watching an oprah show on how things work, my friend La La is now weirded out by her microwave, i came up with a way to improve on the microwave:
[07:24] FindlayTex: how did opera creep you out about the microwave?
[07:25] La La: She showed how it actually works and the whole particle thing and stuff and I don't know... It just did
[07:25] FindlayTex: hmm... ok
[07:26] FindlayTex: you're not right sometimes. you know that?
[07:26] La La: I just cooked something and I thought about the moving water/fat particles and yeah...
[07:27] FindlayTex: lol
[07:28] FindlayTex: yay agitating only the organic substances.
[07:28] La La: I will NEVER microwave organic foods...
[07:28] La La: That's just be crazy! Shit groovin and shakin all over the place!
[07:28] FindlayTex: lol
[07:29] La La: It'd be like soul train with carrots and broccoli. Put on some "Get down Tonight" and press start.
[07:30] FindlayTex: lol!
[07:30] FindlayTex: you just need Don Cornelious.
[07:30] FindlayTex: or however you spell that
[07:31] FindlayTex: hahahaha, that's what they need, a picture of don corneleous'
[07:31] FindlayTex: head as the start button
[07:31] La La: Oh god...
[07:31] La La: I"m never using the microwave again
[07:32] FindlayTex: and then when the microwave starts up, all you hear is "Soooooooooooooooooul Traaaaaaaaaaain!"
[07:34] La La: Come on Ride the train...
[07:35] FindlayTex: ride it.
[07:35] La La: Oh god, I gotta go to bed soon.
