Watching South Park Drunk.
Drinking and watching South park when feeling down is something I highly recommend. I was feeling down about certain things Sunday night and I couldn't sleep. Monday was a holiday and I also had this craving for something filling. Now I confess that I am a cheap date, I don't really drink so it actually doesn't take much to get me feeling tipsy. I don't have much choice out here in the country tv wise, I was watching the news and when it ended South Park came on. I was feeling pretty light headed by then so all the stupid jokes were that much more stupid. It was the perfect episode for me, it was a spoof on illegal immigrants but being South Park, instead of Mexicans coming in across the borders, it was hordes of Canadians, ( you have to watch those Canadians). I nearly wet myself when they were teaching people the alphabet song in Canadian, stupid in real time, hilarious in tipsy time. At some point I felt sleepy and went to bed.
Just before the news at eleven came on, I caught the end of some awards show. They brought out the rap group Salt & Pepper to receive an achievement award. Now being a white boy from a farming community up in Canada, I am not qualified to judge rap music. I don't like most of it to be honest but it's probably because I don't have a cultural connection, except Drake maybe, I like a lot of his pieces (a good Canadian boy). I felt there were a lot of good rap songs back in the day when I could still shake my little asset. It's funny how back then rap, dance and hip-hop were fighting to get recognised, now they are part of the main stream with pop music and it's now rock that has been scrubbed away from awards shows.
They said it was thirty years ago that Salt and Pepper came on scene, thirty years that really shocked me, after thirty years Sa Sa Salt and Pepper is still hip (I think maybe only Maddie will get that). The ladies performed a bunch of their hits and I think they proved my point about good rap songs back in the day, every star and singer in the audience was on their feet shaking booty to the sisters great tunes, I will also say even as a gay man, I noticed the ladies still looked delicious after thirty years. It was like the show ended with a party, they deserved the award, good job. I don't think too many places in thirty years will be jumping to today's rap songs screaming "slap the b..ch"! Wow, thirty years... where did it go?
