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.

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. 😁

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.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then
