"Yo, V.I.P. Let's kick it"

I know you're already singing it "Ice Ice Baby."   It's okay.  We ALL know the words to it.  So one night when a microphone gets put in my face and I'm trying to think of something to sing;  Ice Ice Baby was all I could think of.  So I preformed it.  No, I'm not the best rapper out but for a white guy, I do okay.  Of I guess I should mention that a little alcohol was involved.  Now my co-workers had encouraged me to do it because they got a kick out me rapping at work.  I guess a older white guy spitting out Ice Cube, Dre, Too Short, BDP...(the list is end list) wasn't something they were accustom to seeing.  But once again, it's Shane just being Shane.  So, I preformed the song and even added a few extra words to make it my own.  All of that would have been sufficient.  But I didn't stop there. I (unfortunately) had to take an extra step. Several actually, as during the instrumental part of the song I busted out into full  running man as if it's 1989 all over again.  Yes, I went there.   Did I mention alcohol was involved?  Unbeknownst to me, two co-workers recorded the "performance" on cell phones and were than happy to share the recording with those who had missed it.  Fortunately, the video has yet to find it way to YouTube or Tosh would be calling for a web redemption.  Anyway, it's a moment that some won't let die.  That's fine.  I laugh about because it is funny.  I have been ask for a repeat performance quite often.  I have been hesitant.  I guess I need to be in the moment.  And I don't like the idea of being recorded.  YouTube is full of videos of people who were just having fun but are now embarrassed constantly  because someone posts the video just to be cruel.  Anyway, will there be a repeat performance?  I don't know.  However, I am rather fond of this Gangnam Style thing.


  1. In today's world, it is not paranoid to worry about if there is a camera somewhere. It happens all the time.

    1. Yup. Although the cameras don't bother me so much. It's the posting of videos that irritate me.
