i love tribe called quest but i dunno if i know that song.
the pta song sounds familiar. i'll have to look it up. i like the other ones a lot. so whatcha want is my 3rd favorite beasties song. i love check your head. that is probly my favorite beastie album. i think the 2 songs i listed were on that album too. it was their grunge/rap album. same year cypress hill put out their album with "insane in the brain" (black sunday?) that was the other grunge/rap album i still love.
connected is way cool. makes me think of hackers... the movie, but i'm sure u knew what i meant
another song like that, only i think from the 80's that is awesome is fascinated. i forget at the moment who sang it, but i love it. do u know the song i mean?
Jul. 27th, 2007 08:13 pm (UTC)
hmmmm, I'm not sure I do. The only song that comes to mind is (Keep Feeling)Fascination by Human League.
Jul. 28th, 2007 03:40 am (UTC)
no. its like "i'm fascinated by your love boy... i'm fascinated by the way you make me feeel"
Jul. 28th, 2007 03:43 am (UTC)
but i know the human league song.
i think i have a tape worm.
either that or my food is just not nutritioning me well enough.
i am dirty. not in a sexy way, but in a, i am covered in the dirt from my apartment blowing around and sticking to my sweaty because its so friggin hot out, body.
uh huh uh huh.
i swear whenever i stop drugs i am more confused and wacked than when i'm on them.

oohh .. Arrested Development - I love them ... *goes off to search You Tube for some video*

is soul II soul Hip Hop? They were always a fave. As were De La Soul ... :)

awesome list Jymi

i dunno if soul 2 soul is considered hip hop, but that is TOTALLY weird that we were both thinking of them... really. i mean who ever thinks of them anymore? and here we are as far away as 2 earthlings can be from eachother and we both bring them up at the same time....wacky i tell ya.
de la soul on the other hand is definately hip hop and one of the greeatest. i love those hippy hip hoppers.

lol .. our brains must have been in sync! :)

very wacky.

do you like house?
here's a classic
Jul. 26th, 2007 04:49 pm (UTC)
i cant watch videos right now unfortunately. thats why i havent been posting them lately. i cant watch videos, use my printer, use my cd rom drive, flash, photoshop, i cant even listen to lj voice posts.
i'm getting a new computer hopefully cuz its driving me friggin nuts!
but i'll watch the videos you posted when i go to my parent's house.
and yes, i do like house.
my gender therapist who i am going to see in a few minutes (well i see her in an hour, i leave in a few minuts) she kind of reminds me of house. at first i didnt like her cuz she was kind of cocky and narcisistic seeming, but the reality is that she is brilliant at her job and if she's acting like a know it all, its because she knows she's right, and she usually is.
i wonder if the people who write House put any thought into what star sign House is when they were character developing. He seems like a virgo. i'm a virgo. my therapist is a virgo. a lot of cocky, anal retentive creative/smart people are virgos. i like being a virgo but i wish i were not so anal sometimes. although, it does keep me out of trouble a lot.

oh yo meant house MUSIC! ha. i thought u meant he show. i never heard that song before but it was cool

i've heard of TY and i DO know and like dizzee rascal.
i would like to hear some more canadian rap. i have heard a few really good canadian rappers tho i dont recall who they were
Jul. 26th, 2007 05:08 pm (UTC)
