I'm Whitey and I Apologize!

Today was such a weird day. I had global health, which is totaly different than what I had hoped for. Instead of learning about... well learning about Global health, we're learning about social health through inequality and privilege. It's a class full of crazy "I have 9 children named after solar systems" type people. It's very very weird in there.

Today the professor was talking about consumerism and what that means for American's. Then she asked how many people in the class had an iPod with them, and a bunch of us raised our hands. The guy I sit next to and I both thought that it was to make a point about how we've been conditioned to consume. Nope, WRONG!

She asked us to pull up our music and tell her and the class the first 5 songs that came up and tell them what it's about. Some other people went first, and we learned that it was all to make a point about Music being racist. I was kind of interested in what she was saying, but disagreeing with some of it too. Then it got to my turn.

I need to explain that my History of Rock Music class is freaking amazing.  In it he gives us a playlist of 15 songs from the period or genre that we're studying, and then we eventually take a test on it. The genre we're studying right now is funk music. I've been listening to it pretty much non stop.

Back to the story.

It's my turn and I pull out my iPod and this is the list of songs that popped up.
1) Love Train by the O'Jays. She tore it apart. It's from the viewpoint of American's who think they have it all figured out. Not to mention it's a song by a Black group, no big deal though.

2) Family Affair by Sly and The Family Stone. Again the class pointed out problems with this song and blah blah blah. I was surprised that two motown funk songs had popped up in a row.

3) Super Freak by Rick James. Well that's just sexist! You've probably figured out what I had figured right about now. I HAD IT ON MY FUNKIN BRAINFEEDER MIX FROM MY MUSIC CLASS. It's a bunch of funk songs that are... well not the happy go lucky type of song prefered by the people in this class.

So I discreetly switched playlists over to a more general one.

4) Working on a Dream by Springsteen. I was happy this popped up. It's a good song. Surely there isn't something wrong with it. WRONG! It's written from a white perspective, and only applies to other whites. A colored person could never hope to "climb the ladder" towards a dream. Well Fuck.

5) If The Government Could Read My Mind by The Vandels. Well they loved this one of course. haha.

It's such a weird class, and I felt like an idiot for not realizing that my playlist was the one from class. I got some pretty weird looks for my music tastes. I should have busted out some Dr. Horrible's sing along blog, they wouldn't have known what to say.

The required post about spring term classes.

Global Health MW
US History 203 MW
Physical Anthropology TR:
History of Rock Music TR: I'm so excited for this. Rock music from 1975-95. Pretty much my fun class of the term.

I'm so happy to be back in school. This past term has sucked! It's a full load but I know it's going to be worth it in the end.

I've got a story for you

There's a wonderful world where all you desire
And everything you've longed for is at your fingertips
Where the bittersweet taste of life is at your lips
Where aisles and aisles of dreams await you
And the cool promise of ecstasy fills the air
At the end of each junk food run he's waiting there

I'm in love with the guard of the supermarket
As the evening sky turns blue
A dream awaits in aisle number two

With my shopping cart I move through the heart
Of a sea of fools so blissfully unaware
That they're in the presence of something wonderful and rare
The way she moves behind the counter
Beneath his grey uniform his secrets remain his
As he guards the groceries, his eyes so bored
And sure he is unobserved

I'm in love with the guard of the supermarket
There's nothing I can say
Each night I take my groceries and I drift away, and I drift away

With guidance from the gods above
At night I pray for the strength to tell the one I love
I love, I love, I love him so
I take my place in the checkout line
For one moment his eyes meet mine
And I'm lifted up, lifted up, lifted up, lifted up, lifted away

I'm in love with the guard of the supermarket
Though a security cap covers his hair
Nothing can hide the hottness waiting there
The hottness waiting there

As I lift my groceries into my cart
I turn back for a moment and catch a smile
That blows this whole fucking place apart
I'm in love with the guard of the supermarket
I'm in love with the guard of the supermarket

.... So now you know. hahaha. Ok no more sugar for Kali. Ask Angelina, the guy is not bad looking. The young one, not the old creepy guy. That would be a completely different song.

Step in Time!

We went and saw Mary Poppins tonight. AWESOME! Putting aside the fact that it's my favorite childhood movie, it was so much fun. Not to mention that it was 2+ hours of Dick Van Dyke. You can't go wrong with him, ever.
