Mild Obsession

I guess I have sorta been into weird dancey industrail house shit for a while, but I just rediscovered this song and its adding fuel to the fire. I know Prodigy is back in fashion now (old prodigy), I called that shit like 2 years ago. I knew hipsters were gonna take that and run with it and would think it was cool to dress up like old ravers. Nothing wrong with that, I mean, Chris had a RAD tye-died prodigy shirt which i encouraged him to wear at any/every opportunity. This is next, I think.

WHAT WHAT IN THE BUTT!

OK, seriously, if you did not watch the video I posted on March 1st. Scroll down and watch. I am obsessed with this guy.

My Friend Joe

An old co-worker of mine, Joe, came to Argentina a couple of weeks ago to visit some family he has here. I had a really good time taking him around, and since I can't seem to manage taking pictures myself, here is Argentina through the eyes of Joe.

Everything I Do Gon' Be Funky

Yeah
Can you feel it baby
I can too

Come on swing it [4 times]

1-2-3 - Now we come to the pay off

It's such a good vibration
It's such a sweet sensation [2 times]

Yo! It's about that time
To bring forth the rhythm and the rhyme
I'm a get mine so get yours
I wanna see sweat comin' out your pores
On the house tip is how I'm swingin' this
Strictly Hip-Hop boy, I ain't singin' this
Bringing this to the entire nation
Black, white, red, brown
Feel the vibration

Come on come on
Feel it feel it
Feel the vibration

(Chorus)

Vibrations good like Sunkist
Many wanna know who done this
Marky Mark and I'm here to move you
Rhymes will groove you
And I'm here to prove to you
That we can party on the positiive side
And pump posititve vibes
So come along for the ride
Making you feel the rhythm is my occupation
So feel the vibration

Come on come on
Feel it feel it
Feel the vibration

(Chorus)

Donnie D break it down

Donnie D's on the back up
Drug free, so put the crack up
No need for speed
I'm the anti D-R-U-G-G-I-E my
Body is healthy
My rhymes make me wealthy
And the Funky Bunch helps me
To bring you a show with no intoxication
Come on feel the vibration

Yeah
Can you feel it baby
I can too

(Chorus)

Now the time has come for you to get up
The rest had you fed up but Yo, I won't let up
On the rhythm and rhyme that's designed to
Make your behind move to what I'm inclinced to
Pure Hip Hop, no sell out
If you ain't in it to win it
Then get the hell out
I command you to dance
I wanna see motivation
Come on now feel the vibration

{Piano solo}

It's such a good vibration
Come on come on come on
It's such a sweet sensation
Feel it feel it

(Chorus)

{Piano - out}

It's such a good vibration
Come on come on come on
It's such a sweet sensation
Feel it feel it

(Chorus)

{Piano - out}

Few Random Thoughts

1) The other day when I posted that Jessica Simpson and Ricky Martin looked like the same person, the title of my post should have been Ricky Simpson. It's got a nice ring to it especially when you say it in Spanish - "reek-eeee"

2) I remembered when I used to go to school here, 1st and 2nd grade, that this girl in my neighborhood took me as her show and tell once. Actually, I had a Casio keyboard that had a pre-programmed version of the song "Greensleeves". I had picked out the notes and was able to play it. She took me, and my Casio, and made me stand in front of the class and play Greensleeves. I think she got an A, but I do specifically remember that I fucked up the song in front of the whole class.

3) When you drive a public bus here, that bus is essentially "yours". Which means that you can pimp it out however you see fit. Tonight I saw a row of buses coming down the street. Nothing out of the ordinary really. Then the 4th or 5th bus that passed, had black lights inside instead of regular fluorescent lights. It also had red and pink lights up by where the driver is. Since I saw it, I have seen one or two more like that. I promise I will take a picture. It's the disco bus.

Lois

Gerrit loves his mother very much. However, Gerrit has a problem sometimes with her emailing habits. She likes to forward chain letters and whatnot. I think its hilarious but, I am also new to the list of people she forwards stuff to. In anycase, I received an email from her called "Time To Paint The Cat". Here are some of the pictures (just to give you an idea of the type of stuff that is constantly coming through on Gerrits blackberry). I say, if gettin' these emails is wrong, I don't wanna be right...

Job Market

My cousin here in Argentina is currently looking for a new job as an administrative assistant. She has been going to mucho interviews and whatnot. In this process I have learned some insane stuff about what it is like to be an Argentine worker here. (the following does not happen to Americans, or so I've been told. Maybe because they know they would get a swift kick in the ass if they did):

To get a job, in most cases you must first submit a resume with a photo. If you get called for an interview the process goes something like this:

1) First interview
2) Second interview
3) Psychological test
4) Have a physical performed
5) A home visit from a representative of the employer. They check to make sure your living conditions are adequate. They take pictures to go show to other people at the office of the employer
6) An extensive review of your finances and a credit check.

THEN...You may or may not get the job. At this point, you will still be up against 4 or 5 other people.

My cousin is going to a job interview today where they will make her play "games". Leadership games or something. This will take the place of step 1 listed above.

Once you get the job, I'm sure there are many other ridiculous things that take place. The only one I know of for now is that when you call in sick, they send a doctor to your house to verify that you are, in fact, sick.

Chris Otto and I would never be able to hold down jobs here if we were Argentine. Well, Chris would never actually get the job. The interview process would be halted at the home visit.

Same Annoying Looking Person

G had a very keen observation today. That Jessica Simpson and Ricky Martin are the same person. I am laughing because he's right and also because in the pictures he sent me for comparison, you can see her nip...

I Miss...

This guy...



These guys...



And this place...



On another note, My cousins 4 yr old daughter showed me this dance called "BUTTER". There is a song that goes along with it, that is called Butter and is sorta racy. Here she is (her name is Sol) doing the butter for me...



I haven't been taking many pictures mostly because I think people are out to rob me and partly because I have not my had my computer until about 3 days ago. I am going to try to take more pictures. I had lice last week, I should have taken a picture of THAT. It was so gnarly. Sol gave them to me which is why I am not angry. You can't be mad at a 4 yr old for giving you lice, I suppose. I thought about it though...

RIP Anna Nicole

Awards shows will not be the same without you....

On another note, I had lice last week.
