every day i want to get on my camel and ride
DO YOU PEOPLE HEAR ME?! Steveland Hardaway Judkins on Sesame Street when BOTH he and sesame street were at the apex of their powers. i mean, what's the equivalent today? are we, like, going to have Kanye on Sesame Street? he's probably already done his cameo with Elmo. but you know what? something tells me that mr. college dropout -- as sharp as his production skillz be -- doesn't quite measure up to Stevie Motherfucking Wonder. what other stars does society have to offer our kids today? Fiddy Cent? T.I.? T.O.? Snoop? Fergie Hagface? Yawn Mayer? Gwen Stefani? Justin Timberlake (yes, he was a mouseketeer, but now he's bringing sexy back ... )? Ruben Stoddard? ninja, please.
sorry. nobody's going to measure up to Stevie Wonder. (Boogie on Reggae Woman, anyone? I Was Made To Love Her? AS? all of Innervisions? Cash in Your Face? Do I Do? I Wish? Songs in the Key of Life? Love Having You Around? to quote no lesser authority than MC Hammer: YOU CAN'T TOUCH THIS!). so, check this out. i mean, really, really check this out. check it all the way out, up, backwards and down. flip it over, slap it, rub it and respect it. watch this 36 times in a row like i did and love every second of it:
CAN I GET A WITNESS????
and your extra-special bonus round is right here. the bad-assest version of Superstition that you never heard. on sesame street?!!? what the fuck? this is like Mother Teresa coming back from the dead, waking up at 5:30 am with you and your toddler, taking your hand and telling you that everything in the world is going to be OK forever. bad things will never happen to anyone ever again. this is beautiful.
i want to know what became of that kid in the orange sweater. you didn't see him? guess you better watch both clips again.
