Which is why this song left me scratching my head. It's a serviceable, pleasant enough r&b pop song, but it seems the producers or whomever had an identity crisis and couldn't decide whether to make it a club banger or a crooning r&b jam for the ladies. Well why not both? Hence, lil' jon screaming "hey" and "do you remember" at various oddly placed parts of this song. I hear it on the radio in the morning and it just puts me off. Then again, maybe they cut a deal with lil abner/jon and had to find a place for him in the song. Maybe he's the producers cousin? I don't know but it doesn't really work. It just makes me nervous when I hear it. Quit screaming at me lil buddy, I just want to smooth out with the r&b jamz. Got it?

In many ways, little john (not from robin hood fame) reminds me of that guy in the mighty mighty bosstones who would just dance on the stage the whole concert. Hard enough work, I know. He was one of the first rock hype men. Which is really what little buddy is. Now we live in the age of the multi millionaire buddy who shouts in the background and gets paid lucratively for it. It can't last forever I guess, hence the foray into soda pop/energy drinks. Keep it up buddy, I don't think many have gone so far on so little. And besides if it wasn't for him we wouldn't have chappelle's impersonation. So i guess the world balances itself out.
As you can tell I have big ideas on the mind. On with the entertainment...

I just watched this documentary last night. Luckily, you can find the whole thing on youtube. It's about a child evangelist who started preaching at the age of 4, marrying people and whatnot, left preaching for a while in the 60's and came back to it, just to make money, which is what he was doing in the first place. Anyhoo, it's entertaining. Enjoy. Here's the first ten minutes. If you're interest is piqued, the rest is on youtube. search for "Marjoe", which by the way is a sweet combo of Mary and Joseph.

While we're on the subject, I also offer you this great entertainment that is Benny Hinn. You might wanna mute the volume as the soundtrack is "let the bodies hit the floor" but then again maybe you won't. Enjoy.

It seems we've hit a time warp and we're back in 1994. Or at least that's what you'd gather from listening to the radio. Yeah, I know. You probably don't listen to pop radio. But I do. This isn't a complaint, just an observation. But we're back in euro pop/disco clubland all over again.

You don't believe me? You don't care? Either way...

Ok, so now we've got better drum machines and synths, but hot damn if it isn't pretty much the same thing. And to think you thought the tandem of Nirvana/hip-hop had terminated this stuff, or at least relegated it to the club/dance music ghetto?
Wrong. Now it's back in full force on top 40 clear channel coast to coast. Your little brother/sister is probably bobbing along in the mirror to this as we speak, if not yourself. I wonder if there's any link between europop/dance music becoming popular during recessions? Calling all sociologists.
What a joke! This will always be around. As long as there are mesh tank tops, Redbull, hair gel and Long Island, this type of music will always exist. Got any poppers/GHB?

Now's the time in Sprockets when we dance.
