Old School

November 30, 2007

OK, so a couple of old friends stopped by the club the other day, and I’m talkin’ “old friends”, I’ve known these two since Jr. High or longer. We got on the subject of music and what we used to listen to “back in the day”, and… well, lets see if these don’t take you back to a “Jr. High Dance” or two (if they don’t, then your too fuckin’ young to be reading my blog anyway, LOL).

Candyman

I remember when I first realized how old I was: I was on Napster (when it used to be free) looking for a song by Slick Rick, and I couldn’t remember the name of it. So I figured that I would just pop into the rap chat room and ask. Everybody in there claimed to “know” old school, so I tried to explain how the song went, and was met with “Slick Rick? Who’s that?” “I wasn’t even alive in the 80s” “I thought you meant old school like Dr. Dre – G Thang!”

Fuckin’ twerps! I was still listening to that album at that time.

Anyway the song I was lookin’ for was Slick Rick – I Shouldn’t Have Done It and apparently they won’t let me post it in my blog, so you have to click the link to see it, or just enjoy this other video

    Damn, that was fun! My dad wouldn’t let us watch MTV when I was growing up but I had all these on cassette. (side note: do you know how hard it is to find a cassette player anymore? When I started studying French a few years ago, I found that that the audio portion of the books were on cassette tape; it took weeks to find a player.)

    c’est impossible! Best bet is to hit up a flea market or garage sales and get one used, it’s a bit of a “Holy Grail Quest” to find one new in the store. lol
