the dj's take: Song #3 in our chapter 56 mix (4:00):
Can't lie - that shade of green in the underwater scenes from the video gave me a flashback to the first time I got stoned in the early 2000s. Was lying in my bed, feeling like I was at the bottom of the ocean, staring up at the sky (i.e. the ceiling).
Five minutes felt like an hour. Called a more experienced friend on my Nokia cell phone, asking if this was normal. They assured me everything would be ok. Had to call in sick to a gig in downtown Boston that night, because my ability to beatmatch by ear was compromised. No regrets.
As for the song itself, I like it quite a bit. May do a video on my decision to mix this into Ginuwine's Pony. More interesting than you might think - stay tuned.
