Kickin' it old school... kinda...

So, while in American Eagle the other day, I heard a song that sounded familiar. It reminded me of another time...

When I was in fourth grade, I had this bad ass tape player...






I brought it to school and would play this newly released, super cool tape...



Man, I thought I was so super cool. I got in trouble for playing it at snack time. The grouchy teacher said I could only play it at recess. Where was the love?? And, we used to have that wax candy that had that juice inside it. We would chew them up and form the wax in to fake nails. Gross, huh?

Back to shopping in A.E... (Yeah, for the record, I'm a clearance rack shopper only in that joint) Anyway, I was listening and I realized I was listening to a remake of "Beat It". You've probably heard it. If you haven't, check it out on that playlist to your right. It's by Fall Out Boy. I don't know how you feel about Pete Wenz, but he doesn't do too bad of a job. Personally, he wears a little too much eyeliner for me and he's a little young... I'm more a fan of the older set... Anyway, if you're from the "Thriller" era, weigh in on this for me, would ya?

So, as far as my playlist goes, I'm going to comment on a few of the songs... Buttons and Promiscuous Girl - if these don't make you want to dance around your house (possibly on your kitchen table) like the MILF you know you are, then I don't know what would... Shut Up and Apologize are some of my theme songs... Come Undone and Sadness - damn, just give me a black light in a room with a black poster board bed and a white comforter and a hot guy... Meet Virginia - pretty sure I'm her long lost sister (as well as the other 1,000 women who think that because, although Pat Monahan is short, he's hot)... Right now, I just can't get enough of the Jason Mraz song, I'm Yours... When me and the guys get in the car, they ask if I'm going to put in my 'happy song'... It's just so carefree and island-like and cool... "well, you done done me and you bet I felt it... I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted..." yeah, you know who you are...

I'm curious as to what you're into right now. So, let me know what moves you. I might end up finding something else that moves me... I'm always on the look-out...

BTW, for y'all from the "Thriller" era... My, how time changes things???? This is a current pic from his site, I think. He really does kinda look like a young Liz Taylor or something? Sorry if you're a fan. I won't judge; you don't either...

Oh I do love this post! Ok, I think I start all my comments on your blog by saying that.

I can't believe I don't remember the tape player, but I totally remember the wax candy fingernails. (Remember playing poker with funyuns in study hall?)

I had a necklace charm that was a sparkly glove, and my cool cousin from Chicago had a gown with that pic on it that said, "I only sleep with the best." Ugh...so tacky. It was cool then though.

BTW, I love the Jason Mraz song too!
