Now Playing: It’s Like That – Run-D.M.C.

Don’t you miss the old MTV? That period when they play music videos all day, every day until you have memorized the order of videos they’re going to play, and the exact time when they’re going to play it? Yeah, MTV used to be badass.

There wasn’t YouTube in the 1990s and early 2000 (at least that’s what I think) then. So if I wanted to watch a current music video favorite, I’d wait for MTV to air it. Literally. I’d stay up late just to catch MTV Most Wanted, MTV Diyes, or MTV Asia Hitlist etc–It was agonizing! Youngsters are lucky nowadays. Very lucky, indeed.

Nostalgia-ing aside, I’m sharing you a video from Run-D.M.C.‘s It’s Like That. It’s the mother lode of all hip hop videos and movies. This spawned my interest in the culture of hip hop culture so it holds a special place in my heart (naks!).

And did you spot Vanness Wu? I know, new-found respect to the man. Totally.

Now Playing: Look at Me Now – Chris Brown ft. Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne

Wowed at Busta Rhymes’s rap part. Must memorize! I have the lyrics up and I still can’t sing along.

Day 10 – Songs I listen to when you I'm happy, sad, bored, hyped, mad etc.

It’s my birthday week, you guys! If you have been paying attention to this extremely silly blog of mine, I have been incredibly late in posting my entries. It’s a good thing I don’t have an editor as strict as Miranda Priestly; No one to rush me to meet deadlines! Ah, the joys of keeping a personal blog.

Anyway, on to the challenge! My little third generation iPod Nano (Remind me to name her. Yes, it’s a girl.) accompanies me wherever I go. In fact, it has become part of me, I feel naked when I forget my iPod at home.

Because I am moody as the Philippine  weather, I always put my iPod on shuffle. I play songs whichever fit my liking at that moment. But it’s usually:

Eraserheads, Paramore, Slipknot, Parokya ni Edgar etc. when I feel rocking my brains out.

Timbaland, T-Pain, Flo-rida, Justin Timberlake, and the like when I need some perking up in the morning and sleepy afternoons.

Usher, Trey Songz, Ne-Yo, Chris Brown, and such when I just want to chill out.

How ’bout you? What songs do you listen to? Maybe we have something in common.

I wonder how many bones were broken

I cannot remember the innumerable times my jaw dropped to this dance video, but there is something about it that still gives me chills whenever I watch it.

Do you happen to know the title of the music they used on their routine? I’m pretty sure it’s a Broken Social Scene song. Google isn’t giving me any clues. Help.

And oh, if, by chance, you know the girl dancer, please tell her I love her. Thanks.
