Retro Ice


I just can’t get over it. It’s my April Vibe Dingbat.

After recently reporting (ha!) the comeback Tour of Vanilla Ice WITH MC Hammer, the interest I had as a 12 year old has been re-perked.

Turns out there’s some remixes out there. And some bloody good ones.

Vanilla Ice went house. This mix fukn rocks. Granted, I’m a tekno junkie.

Even JT aka Justin Timberlake jumped on the bandwagon, albeit so lamely. Embedding is disabled by request, but thank God, since JT, with exponential production values coming out the proverbial, manages to completely remove all passion from the song. FAIL.

And the bloke still raps live.

Arguably, his cred was lost not by himself but by a million plus paycheck offerred when he was 19.

Anyway it turns out it took another 10 or so years for white rap to emerge properly.

But check out the mashup.

And speaking of mashups… Gunners and Snoop Dogg… shit, it actually works… but only just.

(There you go Angus. Is the countdown clock off the first page now?)

PS Still Not Sorry, Queen.

Oh BTW This is where house is really at.

And really AT…

And AT

UPDATE

The destruction of the main page at Tizona’s had to stop. Hence the clips have been put below the fold. BTW, apart from the last three clips, the rest are meant to be very tongue in cheek. Seriously, what kind of a name is ‘Vanilla Ice’??? It’s almost as bad as ‘bingbing’. And to think, Hammer pants were all the rage once. Ahhh, early nineties pop. Such a tragedy. So much so that the record industry got the shits and the next year shat out Nirvana and Rage Against The Machine.

UPDATE II

The Eminem/Vanilla Ice mashup now has been visualized. Bet that made you’re days, didn’t it?

    Gunners and Snoop? Leave it out. I prefer Jay Z vs The Verve: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guh06NPgNmQ

    Some great mashups out there. Search YouTube for ‘jirbo’ and you’ll find a few classics including this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgVpgVsz2B4

    And of course I meant ‘jirob’ not ‘jirbo’. Ai ai ai…

      Is it safe for work?

      Cool bottles, btw.

      “Is it safe for work?”

      Language warning, perhaps: words typical to rap make a few appearances. Videos themselves safe as houses.

      All good now, anyway. Back at home with the subbies! (My poor neighbors – it’s an apartment).

    Whenever I see vision of Kevin Rudd trying to act & sound all “cool” and “with it,” I get 90’s Offspring flashbacks.

    Friends say he’s trying too hard and he’s not quite hip
    But in his own mind he’s the, he’s the dopest trick
    Give it to me baby, uh huh, uh huh
    Give it to me baby, uh huh, uh huh
    Give it to me baby, uh huh, uh huh
    And all the girlies say I’m pretty fly for a white guy

    What a seriously tragic little try-hard Australia’s PM is. Howard wasn’t cool, but that was cool, because he knew he wasn’t cool.

    Wonder what Kev’s like at dancing?

    “Uno dos tres cuatro cinco cinco seis…”
