May 15th, 2013. 2:30 PM. Los Andes, Chile.
I sat down in the teacher’s lounge for my usual coffee and mid-afternoon break. For some reason, the basic cable TV had been flipped on— the first time I’d seen it turned on all year. It had on a Chilean reality show known as Mundos Opuestos 2. I’d never seen any Chilean reality TV, so it seemed like a good time to watch a bit of the show. This first thing that I noticed was the strangely derivative Real World meets Survivor format— there were two teams full of 20 to early 30 somethings, living together and competing to win a physical challenge each week. The second thing I noticed was the voice of a cast member with an extremely gringo accent. I turned to the janitor sitting next to me, “Who the hell is that? He’s a gringo, right!”
“Yes!” He told me. “Rieeeeeechard!” He laughed to himself. ”He’s a comedian from the US! They said he was on a show about geeks there, so they decided to bring him over to be a member of Mundos Opuestos.”
NOTE: This post is a departure in that it has nothing to do with my excursions in Chile.
I don’t know why…but I have a strange fascination with audacious rap lyrics. How many ways can someone describe an ass? Rappers have found thousands and thousands, and many of them quite artfully awesome! If you can appreciate over the top rap, then you have a good appreciation for language. I know it’s been over 3 years, but let’s just take a second to review some of the lyrics of Young Money’s song, “Bed Rock.” Like most Lil Wayne/Nicki Minaj/Young Money music, it’s chock full of sexual innuendo (this is actually tame by their standards):
“My room is the g-spot,
call me Mister Flintstone,
I can make your bed rock.”
“I’m attracted to her
for her attractive ass.”
“Okay I get it, let me think, I guess it’s my turn.
Maybe it’s time to put this pussy on your sideburns.”
