Sometimes the OCD in me thinks that it would be interesting if I had kept track of when I had bought each of my records and CDs. That fine line between extreme detail and near insanity. High Fidelity, anyone?
But I didn’t keep track so I don’t know. But I’m 99% sure that the first 12″ single I ever bought was Feel The Spin. It’s from the soundtrack to Krush Groove. I don’t remember it being used in the movie Krush Groove but then again, I don’t remember much about the movie Krush Groove even though I know I saw it. I remember going to see it because it starred Run-DMC. I remember LL Cool J had a cameo. Wow – Sheila E was in it – don’t remember that. Well, it was probably still a step above Breakin’ and nowhere near the classic Beat Street.
And no, I’m not being sarcastic about Beat Street. I love that movie. If that movie had been just a little more serious, it would be truly great like 8 Mile. But it jumped around a little too much from drama to music to silly comedy.
But now I’m rambling. Play me out, Debbie.

I know that every person, community, company, and project in the world wants to be Facebook friendly and send Twitter updates to the world. But am I the only one who finds this idiotic and insulting? You’re telling me that you can’t determine where this money will go based on community needs and the capabilities of the hospital? Instead, money for a cancer center will be determined by internet ballot-stuffing and who has the most influence on 4chan?!?!
Can we leave internet voting to things like ‘Choose the ugliest dog’, ‘Name this baby elephant’, and ‘Pick the color of Kayne’s new teeth’.
