Talk about arroz com beans, what the hell is the name of this song? I keep wanting to call it Mujeres in the club.

This song is pretty fuckin hot and amazingly, the addition of an english language rap artist doesnt totally fuck up the flow. Folk have seemed to figure out how to integrate the rap into the existing flow and not just paste some shit on top. “YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHUHHHHHHH”

I saw this video today on tv and had a moment of my usual distaste for 50 Cent. I think I called him a thug ass mofo. Now, I dont think of W&Y as thug as mofos, why is that? Is it because 50 is a negro? Actually, being an American rapper is only part of it, its that he wears Fred Flintstone tshirts and athletic shoes. W&Y have tucked in shirts and boots on. Actually, I think one of them does have on tennis shoes.

I suppose I am showin my age, or class or both.(I was going to say Im just a fuddy duddy, but I do know ppl my age who do wear tennis shoes all the time) Because I hate athletic shoes worn as street wear. I can tolerate them with shorts, thats ok. But I cannot stand athletic shoes with jeans or khakis. And I cannot stand untucked tshirts. Not long untucked ones. I can tolerate it like if you have to pay your Walton tithe,or get your car fixed or something. On men. Women are only to wear athetic shoes at thegym, the park and the plant nursery. I have spoken.

Seriously, I have a guys number in my phone and I never called him because he was wearing a baseball cap, LONG shorts (WTF?? I guess they were manpris, didnt Jams go out of style 20 years ago?) and some sort of tennis shoe. Even my brother, even my “kids”, even my idiot former boytoy wear real shoes and a tucked in shirt when going out to a club or party.

I perceive men in casual clothing at night as overgrown teenagers, and I perceive men who are overgrown teenagers as thugs and hoodlums. AND I consider it disrespectful for a guy to step to me in his play clothes when I have taken the time to get dressed in “appropriate” attire. And yes, based simply on his shoes and being tucked or untucked, I make an instant judgement and decide we won’t click. I am trying, though it may not seem that way, to keep it from being a negative judgement and not ascribe negative attributes to men simply because they appear to not be a good fit. “Just because it aint what I would do dont make it wrong”

I encounter a lot of $150 jeans and $80 tshirts, I am quite aware that wearing this is not an indication that a person just threw any old thing on and that some “too casual” outfits probably cost more than my dressier ones. But hell, until this year my family still got dressed up in our holiday best (old school style) for Easter, Christmas and other family gatherings and I still blanche when I drive to my mothers at the holidays and see people gathering at other homes, all decked out in jeanery. *shrug* I need time, thats all.

(But 50 is still a thug ass mofo, ok?)

I have TOTALLY ruined the fun. Oh well, let me continue. I’ll post the video before the blahblahblah to save you the trouble of searching for it in all this chatter.

Ok, so to the ppl who made this video. Listen, the Apocalypse Dembow? Its over. Done.Dead.Old.Tired.
I’m sayin I dont want to see ANYMORE FUCKING IMAGERY THAT REFERENCES THE FALL OF CIVILIZATION. Yes, W&Y, that means you. Franco- I’m talkin to you too. NO MORE BOMBED OUT EARTH, NO MORE WAR ZONES. OVER. DONE. Tired. We need a new vision. Can I see some sun? I’ll be happy with some old school beach party or poolside videos.

Other than that, the song is pretty good and I don’t want to admit it because I was trying to blacklist W&Y because of the last cd they did which I didnt even bother to review.
