Wow! What was the project?

I directed the show open and package for Vh1’s Hip Hop Honours while I was based in New York.

I used to be so cool. I think my coolness left sometime around 2012 (and took most of my hair with it).

That's really is pretty cool HBT. I'm thinking of stealing it and incorporating it into my own background.

For verisimilitude, when recounting your experience directing that crew, make sure you add that Eric b and Rakim's album Paid in Full is arguably the greatest hip hop album, and the title track is arguably the most influential hip hop song ever.

And, to avoid any tricky questions that might poke hole in your story,  quickly say the phenomenal coldcut remix is even better than the original (and is also super influential in the way that it blended hip hop and electronic, paving the way for DJ Shadow, Nightmares on Wax and arguably even super producers like madlib, MF Doom and jay dilla)

No one has mentioned that rapper who wore a clock round his neck.

He would never have an excuse for being late to an appointment.

That’d be Public Enemy. There was a thread on here a couple of months ago called Fill the ‘G and I always thought it sounded like a Public Enemy song title (think, Fight the Power).

The band is public enemy.

The fella with the outsize clock like a bling necklace is Flava flav.

Not really a rapper, more an old school hype man.

'Yeah boyeee'

My go to albums for Rap as Paid in full, PE - takes a nation, NWA -Straight outta, Ice -T - OG, Ice Cube - Lethal Injection, Geto Boys -Til death do us part.

Snoops early stuff, Cypress and Warren G’s first lot are always good to throw on too.

Back on the topic of usernames, I assume Mincho Mania is an Gardner Minchew/NFL fan when I see the username.

@Mincho Mania

Sorry, can't stand NFL, comes a close 2nd last to Horse racing re. sports worth watching for me.

Rjay knows what I'm talking about, the genius that is Kanami Tono, shreds like Satriani, looks like an angel

This is the first full thread I’ve read through in months. Lol what a journey. 
 

old55 never came back with his black metal verdict. Anyone checked on him?

 

Back to the user names thing, @Ethan Tremblay’s short stint as GingerGuitar still makes me chortle once a week.

I've always felt disappointed, even sad, for anybody too young to see Robbie Flower play. Having read this thread, I now have a second reason to feel disappointed. Anyone too young for Robbie Flower is also too young to know The Beatles in their prime. I've tried to explain the influence on contemporary music and the seven glorious years of Beatlemania to my children and they just don't understand. All the discussion comparing metal bands in this thread is rather like discussing the merits of Neitz versus Schwarz when Robbie Flower towers over them majestically.

The Beatles were obviously very good but if I had a choice to see one of the 2 i would chose The Doors over The Beatles.

Still mining the ore DA.  Saw the ghost of Anton LaVey down there humming along to a few of the tunes.

I quite liked his previous avi, too. The one where he’s lying seductively on the beach in a rather fetching low-cut number. 😁

He was actually often late to appointments. Was due to looking at the clock in mirrors or upside down with his chin to his chest

Sad story

I always return to “Enter The Wu Tang (36 Chambers)”. It’s got such a dark, subterranean mood throughout, and just drops you into their world. It’s the “Exile On Main St” of hip-hop.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    It's Game Day and it very well could be the last roll of the dice for the Demon's finals aspirations in 2024. A loss to the bottom side would be another embarrassing moment in a cursed year for the Dees whilst a win could be the spark they need to reignite the fire in the belly.

    THE HUNTER by The Oracle

    Something struck me as I sat on the couch watching the tragedy of North Melbourne’s attempt to beat Collingwood unfold on Sunday afternoon at the MCG.    It was three quarter time, the scoreboard had the Pies on 12.7.79, a respectable 63.16% in terms of goal kicking ratio. Meanwhile, the Roos’ 18.2.110 was off the charts at 90.00% shooting accuracy. I was thinking at the same time of Melbourne’s final score only six days before, a woeful 6.15.51 or 28.57% against Collingwood’s 14.5.89

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    PREGAME: Rd 15 vs North Melbourne

    After two disappointing back to back losses the Demons have the bye in Round 14 and then face perennial cellar dweller North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday night in Round 15. Who comes in and who goes out?
