This time we are going to examine, if the grass is greener on the other side of the music fence?
You know those well dressed and groomed, Boys from the Blockstreets, who's singing talent was only evident while they were stationed in the sink, relentlessly popping up everywhere in mid- '90, like mushrooms after the rain. Yeah, those Boys. You were probably wondering where the heck were they coming from? What was their pedigree? Who are these boys, not affraid to expose to the world their feminen side?
The Plumber Boys phenomena.
Well... let's see.
It was much earlier than that, when I overheard a conversation amongst few guys during the recess; how there is a new music movie playing in theaters near us, with a bunch of Village Characters put together. Immediately, I thought: That must be great! I, even imagined; a Redneck, a Hillbilly, a Karl Marx look-alike rowdy pesant with a strong foreign accent, a Local Yokel straight from the Ingmar Bergman movie who mostly hum's and ocasionally puffs, a flamboyant Amish Mennonite, and of course the unmissable Village Idiot, on their rise to stardom. Boy, was I wrong. Throughout the whole presentation I couln't think of anything else but HOW TO STOP THE MUSIC. And it was keep playing and these Characters were keep dancing, and singing like someone was seriously squizing their testicles in harmony. I'm telling you it was once in the lifetime experience. Yet, they managed to influence the Y Generation imensly. Y? Why? Oh, Y? Apparently it was all for the Milk Shake. With todays technology, one would asume they should be able to just stop the Music, and digitaly remove all those Characters that bare no resemblence to my visualization of the Farm Folks, and leave the rest of the personage intact to do the shaking. However, this hasn't been done, yet. Until then, you'll have to do that, with your mind's eye.
