Fat Laces and Big Rope Chains

Yeah, I guess I'm in a "retro" mood....

I realized yesterday that I needed to get the kid some sneakers for his trip; couldn't send him out to Cali with his Payless Stinky Sneaks, so we did a quick run on 225th street. We were there; I had to make a stop in Target on the way home from Karate.

The Sun has a thing for futuristic sneakers, preferably black, but I refuse to pay more than $40 for sneakers cuz he's so hard on them. So we saw the new hardshell Adidas in black with sort of silverish graffiti on them, and they were cool, but we both liked the white ones. I liked them cuz they reminded me of BackInTheDay... so I was thrilled he liked them enough for me to buy them.

On the way home, I told him why I liked them, and today, since we're home, I went to YouTube to show him some old Run DMC video.

My kid is cool. He LOVED Run DMC, and sat at the computer for a good 20 minutes, watching "It's Tricky" and "Walk This Way" , "Run's House" and "Sucker MC's". His favorite, though was "King of Rock". I can't embed the video cuz Sony is stingy like that... but click on the links and go bring back memories....

I have to find him some fat laces.

Walk This Way", I love that too. Me and my BigTiny have much in common. He's the coolest. I have the best grandkids and Great-grandkid in the world. That Tiny1,I guess I won't be like my Mom, a lonely old lady drinking scotch and losing my marbles in a big apartment. Poverty does kind of keep one connected, you always hustlin' and babysittn' some snotty nose brat...I like this side of the Divide. I get emails from an old friend, very sucessful lawyer involved deeply with Bam and the campaign, but he got no snotty nosed brats running him raggedy, or daughters with big mouths and tomcats and such and cetainly no DIVA who keeps us all spinning and no beautiful MMB.

Here's another thought, me and the Professor know hat Simba took off his cat suit one night,and jumped into the TomCats nostril, so, he finally did it became HumanCat....The Professor said hat the Stealth bomber did a fly over in connection woth the All Star GAme, but harlemites thought it was a "UFO, son". that's cause they get their news reports for Lil' wayne...Earth to Weezy..Earth to Weeeezzzy...

Rock Box... terrible video, but awesome song, I remember hearing it all the time frosh yr in college... blazing guitars made the rap very cool to this 17 yr old metal head...

we've been hitting YouTube for old 80s videos, the boys crack up at all the old Duran Duran vids
(they are kind of pretentious at that)

thanks for the flashback!

ROTFLOL "Walk this way" is what we would sing to Gimli when he first started walking! Speaking of YouTube, today I introduced Legolas and Gimli to the satire and parody of Weird Al Yankovic. They were on the floor.
