A few days ago I was in Turntable.fm DJ’ing in one of those “Anything” rooms, when the songs were trending to the nostalgic (and sometimes cheesy) variety. As my brother-in-law Tony said, I swung for the fences but luckily got a good response with Vanilla Ice’s “Ninja Rap”. As if the song isn’t classic enough, the music video really drives it home.
It does scare me a bit that we’re starting to look back at things in the 90’s – the era of my teenage years – with the same patronization as we are with the 80’s. Does this mean I’m getting old?
