*or maybe just my gym
Why do you think that playing Marilyn Manson songs from 2006 over Germany's Funniest Home Videos on mute provides for a motivating gym atmosphere? It doesn't. At all, actually. My iPod is so much better than you. May I introduce you to Weezy, Yeezy, Jigga, Girl Talk or - dare I say it - Willow Smith? Seriously, though, people. When I play Lil Wayne's "I am Not a Human" or Kanye's "Power" (remixed or original, doesn't matter...or both, back to back), I could run on that treadmill all day long. Funnily enough, watching a cat fall into a toilet on the TV screen in front of me doesn't quite have the same effect. Or let's talk about "Monster", shall we? When Nicki Minaj opens her mouth in that song, my adrenaline reaches unprecedented levels. But you falter between the genres of confusingly out-dated death metal and lullaby-ishly slow R&B, which upsets me. Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are"? Come on, now, that's just counter-productive! I didn't want to have to say it, but....you make me miss the US of A and the kind of gyms that come with a mini TV and DVD player on each machine. Just for that, I think I'll run my next 5kilometers to the tune of "America the Beautiful".
And in the spirit of the red,white and blue (or rather red, gray and blue),
I present to you the following photo:
I can't remember why exactly we're all sporting the AA deep V,
but I can recall that this photo was taken during the weekend
we saw Rihanna, Kanye and M.I.A.
back to back to back.
And we're obviously making those gang signs
in honor of M.I.A.'s 'Paper Planes'.
And that makes it a fitting photo for this post...right?
