[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:
