Holy crap, dude!

You've got to pray just to make it today.

By the way, isn't his name just "Hammer" now?

I'm really sad that I missed Hammer for lunch.

Steve said...

I guarantee you nobody in this meeting ever owned "Let's get it started." That tape, along with 'Swass' and 'Seminar' were in heavy rotation back in the day. MC Hammer, Mix-a-lot, Ice T and some crew down in Compton were putting the west coast on the map.

Damn, can't believe I missed the chance to meet the only guy to ever challenge Michael Jackson to dance off. As Hammer would say, "It ain't proper!"

It would seem that I definitely wasn't properly credentialed for this meeting.

Just to clarify, Steve(J), it was lunch with Hammer. Hammer wasn't for lunch.

cool. what was he like?

Chester said...

Let's Get It Started was his masterpiece -- Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em was for the Johnny-come-latelies (though it might be the best album title in history). And, yes, Seminar was on eternal repeat. All enemies hush, let the seminar start.

I can't believe you got to lunch with Hammer. I hope someone was there to properly represent the 510.

Jason Goldman said...

Uhh ... I lived in Berkeley for about a year. 510 in the house!

The best moment came when Hammer was trying to explain his thinking on certain topic. He said, "You gotta put on your Hammer hats."

Eric Case asked, "Can we put on our Hammer pants too?"

Hammer said...
Case, you can put the Hammer in your pants anytime.

Jonathan said...

I bet those pants he wears come in handy on the all-you-can-eat buffets. ;-)

My thoughts on music

Are You sure, that this is MCHammer? It is a very log time ago, that I saw him.

Jason Goldman said...

That is totally MC Hammer. The man threw down a free style about visiting Blogger.

It was awesome.
