Black History Facts Plus Random Thoughts

Hey y’all! It’s been a minute, now I’m back with the jumpoff.

I saw this on our dear friend Brash’s Facebook and thought it would be important to keep up with the important Black History facts she’s sharing here on the blog.

Feb. 2nd – Meet Alexander Miles. He is credited with an important evolutionary upgrade to the elevator. You know how the doors close automatically so you can ignore that coworker you don’t like or avoid the serial killer who’s after you? And also how you don’t have to close them when you get off the elevator? Thank Mr. Miles. He also improved the closing of the elevator shaft when the elevator isn’t on a floor.

Now some cobbled together thoughts…

Empire is still the greatest.  I’m going to get up some more detailed thoughts this week.  (Finally!)

RuPaul’s Drag Race is FINALLY back!!! Best believe I’ll be here recapping it with you all.

The Super Bowl was a good game.  Missy Elliott is the queen of everything. Let’s enjoy a retrospective of some of her greatest hits.

I listened to Work It so so so so many times.  One of the greatest songs of the early 2000’s.  The amount of practice to get the backwards lyrics is why I didn’t do well in Pre-Calculus.

One Minute Man with Trina PLUS The Get Ur Freak On Remix with Nelly Furtado has me about to flip a table.

Stone. Cold.  Classic.  If you don’t know this song by heart, rectify this immediately.  This is music video history.

 

That’s all for now.

These legs are EVERYTHING!

But tear yourself away from the sassy elegance and let’s focus on some of my favorite dance crazes from that past few years.

Every few years or so, some dumb dance craze comes out that everyone does.  If you are that person in the club who can’t keep up, you just end up sitting on the sidelines sipping your drunk cursing that you didn’t have rehearsal before you hit the club!

So let’s crip walk down memory lane!

1) The Heeltoe w/Alyson Stoner (AKA the fly girl from the Missy videos)

2) The Bankhead Bounce (set to Wassup, Wassup by the A-Town Players)

3) The Original Harlem Shake (Where is G-Dep??)

4) The Stanky Leg (too busy bopping to talk here)

5) Walk It Out (DJ UNK!! I’m a sophomore in college again)

6) Halle Berry (this happened!!!)

7) The Dougie (the original.  Because yes)

8) Flex (All of this!)

So what are your favorites?? I didn’t include the Soulja Boy, The Roy which is a personal favorite, or the Snap.  I love them, but they just didn’t make my life the way these did.  Hit us up on Twitter at @ClassNTrashShow or leave us a comment.
