[This is the Jamaican crab that I wasn’t able to scan into my walking-sideways-like- a-crab post the other day. I got my scanner to work today, so there he is, suitably inserted in this post, also having something to do with being sideways.]
My post about moving sideways like a crab made me think of Paul Wall’s video, Sittin’ Sidewayz. (I think it means sitting sideways in the car?) I do love that video. It went through my head while I typed that post. You know how the brain works. I wanted to insert it in the post but thought then that it would distract people from the monumental message I was trying to convey. Plus, he speaks of sitting sideways, I’m talking about walking sideways – people would get confused.
Someone posted a picture of Paul Wall on fb – that helped with this video renting space in my head.
I love the background sample in this song — it’s so ghetto. I find the repetitiveness of these kinds of samples insular yet transporting in an odd way — exactly how homies in the hood would describe it of course. Hereitis:
“Exactly how homies in the hood would describe it” — HA!
Hehehe! Yeah! 🙂
If I walked sideways, I’d probably tear a ligament. I guess I’ll have to stick with my aimless stumbling…
Fu-nny! ‘Tear a ligament!’ Thanks for the imagery!
I love the crab! Never thought I’d say those words. Word on the video, sister. I couldn’t fit a stereo like that in my car, though.
I don’t know how, or why they do it! The speakers these cats have in their cars are earthquake inducing!
Funny how the crab walks sideways without blinking an eye. Maybe it knows a few things about humans
Hmmm… Maybe I’ll do just fine to walk like a crab then.
as long as your pen is your sword, you’ll be fine
sweet rides in the video… head bobbing with my cup o joe this morning.
I’m glad you liked the video. I just think it’s so hot!
for some reason this song was in my head too
For some reason it didn’t play out — I tried listening to it on youtube but the one I clicked wouldn’t play either. Now I’m intrigued and will have to find a version to listen to eventually.
Thinking about how songs like this get stuck in our heads — all kinds of things floating in and out…
I LOVE GHETTO MUSIC!
For some reason, it makes me dance in a way that really works my abs and quads.
Which is good.
I love being sideways. It’s really not a bad place to hang.
This just cracked me up Lisa! I need to dance to this more often if it works for abs and quads!
I tried commenting on your latest post twice but it didn’t appear. I’m thinking maybe it’s just the format of the new blog? I dunno — I wanted to send my prayers out to you and your family and I’m hoping for your son’s speedy recovery. I also liked your waiting room observations, especially the tinkler lady! Take care Lisa — I also eat when I’m stressed which sucks! Yeah, how about those people who lose 30 lbs!
Thank you SOMUCH.
I appreciate it more than you could know!!!
