Man, that takes me back.

But Humpy, why no love for Lineout? I know it gets less traffic than Slog, but perhaps part of the reason is that it gets a lot fewer posts? Put the music posts in the music blog!

Bone Thugs n' Harmony. Fuck. I saw the nod to Easy-E in the video, but for some reason I thought his image appeared in a cloud. Was that a different Bone Thugs video?

1996 was the year I graduated high school, moved away from home and became a man. And you fags wan't to commemorate that with a fucking Spice Girls video? Kiss my hairy black balls, son.

re: #4 - I remember sitting at home late at night watching The Box, a precursor to MTV2 that ran on network TV in the Midwest in the mid-1990s. They used to air the Bones, Thugs & Harmont video..."It's the first of the get your check and c'mon..." or something like that. So damn catchy.

But nothing holds a candle to the Spice Girls. Awwww yeaaaah!
