I Don’t Want To Make You Feel Old, Old Man….

I was at a church rummage sale today, and I picked up a copy of Ugly Kid Joe’s As Ugly As They Want To Be album.

“What’s that?” the old man taking the money said.

“Oldies,” I said.

The hit, of course, was “Everything About You”:

From 1991.

Twenty-six years ago.

I said, “Twenty-six years ago,” old man.

The title, of course is a take off of the title of 2 Live Crew’s 1989 album As Nasty As They Want To Be. Me, I’m just happy to have enough memory to remember 2 Live Crew’s name. Not many do these days since none of them got any roles in cop shows and didn’t die young or violently.
