Word to Your Motha

Edifying. Inspirational. Stimulating.
These adjectives accurately describe my Friday night culturally enriching experience.
For the first time in 18 years, Vanilla Ice and M.C. Hammer reunited on the stage for one night only in little Orem, Utah.
The event founders encouraged attendees to dress in traditional 80s/90s. There was a plethora of neon Ray Bans, glitter, side ponytails, and "Hammer pants."
Post-show, Dalaney, Bri, and I were left speechless.

I'm just so thrilled that I heard the classics (ie: Ice, Ice, Baby..Can't Touch This....Too Legit to Quit) performed LIVE. It was incredible.

Oh, and just so you know... if you're ever tempted to purchase Vanilla Ice's recent recordings, donate that money to a Romanian orphanage. Or burn it. Either way, the result will prove more entertaining.

How about a word from your Motha...what did you wear? I have fond memories of a side ponytail....

There was a time when Vanilla Ice came to Hammond. I couldn't bring myself to pay the exorbitant amount of money they were charging to get in the door of the club. I'm not even sure that he performed.

I think speechless is accurate...I was hoping that we were all speechless so we would never have to talk about that concert again. ugh.
