Sir Mix-A-Lot Sings 'Baby Got Back' with Seattle Symphony
from UPI BreitBart ^ | June 9, 2014 (UPI) | from UPI

Posted on 06/10/2014 4:52:25 PM PDT by equalator

Mix-A-Lot invited women to join him onstage, where he was backed by an orchestra.

"Since tonight is orchestral movements from the hood night, I'm going to leave some of this open if a couple of ladies would like to get up on the stage," he told the audience. "Many musical innovations have been made in hip-hop music that can bring new energy, sounds and rhythm to the classical world."

You can do all that, but unless you want a censorship style government like China or Iran, or a theocracy, you aren't going to back the train into the station.

America was a wonderful experiment— and it worked just fine for quite a while, before among other things, we became a giant company. Once you trade with the entire Earth, you can’t offend anyone, because they will stop buying your products. Best to build a wall and take care of your own. We can be a magnificent people, we just have to get frosty and start over.

A great civilization can have about 200 years before it starts to crap out, and we had a good run. If you’re realistic and understand it isn’t going to last forever, you can give it a whirl and you have a chance to make something amazing. The materials are still here— we just need our minds, and some focus. Oh, and that wall.

I disagree. It began in the 50’s when people decided to incorrectly push God out of public life and that they (simply by being born into a superior culture) were smarter than God and would define morality.

It's the story of the Old Testament. Those who love God worship God, build great societies, once there decide they know better and forget God, and everything goes to hell and suffering follows until they turn again to God.

It would have to be one hell of a wall that encompasses internet and media.

America's cultural values were founded, basically by puritans in the 17th century. Their influence shaped this country, and is still felt today in many areas (blue laws, dry counties etc..) . But puritans were a tiny, tiny minority of European society. Most people were not puritanical in England, Europe, and certainly not the rest of the word.

Once large scale immigration began, in the 19th century, and population growth exploded, it was over. A minority belief system cannot keep hold on a nation this big, even if your wall existed.

It’s a classic rump-shakin’ good song, and looks like everyone was having a great time. Can’t see the problem here.

I have to agree...looked like fun. He’s a Seattle native and I just can’t get worked up over this harmless display.

Bigger fish to fry,

But, pardon the pun, no way, no how, I’m going to go up on stage for anything...let alone to shake my backside at anyone. Not. Going. To. Happen.

A song, backed by a symphony of all things, of a man who casually screws any woman he sees that has a large butt. That he can't help but womanizing any woman he sees with a large butt. Explicit lyrics of his fetish of large butts. And women dancing to this like imbeciles. This you see as normal and fun loving?

It’s pop music, Red. Not a hymn. Everyone I saw on the video looked like an adult, and if it was so degrading to women why were they turning the women away from the stage? Very classy, well-dressed women from the video I watched. Just a lot of people cutting loose and having fun, including the orchestra!

puritans were a tiny, tiny minority of European society. Most people were not puritanical in England, Europe, and certainly not the rest of the word.

Puritans were quite influential in England during the seventeenth century, especially during Oliver Cromwell's republic of 1649-1660. The Huguenots, their Calvinist counterparts in France, were also influential, as were Calvinist sects in Scotland, Switzerland and Germany.

"But puritans were a tiny, tiny minority of European society. Most people were not puritanical in England, Europe, and certainly not the rest of the word."

See the English Civil War. Granted, northern European Protestants (from Huguenot locales in France, northward) eventually became tired of fighting in Europe and moved to America. In early and revolutionary America, they were the majority by far.

In 1785, a Catholic bishop named John Carroll reported on the state of Catholicism and numbered Catholics in America then at about 25,000. That was about 6/10ths of a percent (0.6%) of the population of the thirteen original colonies in 1790 (about 25,000 out of 3,939,000).

"Once large scale immigration began, in the 19th century, and population growth exploded, it was over. A minority belief system cannot keep hold on a nation this big, even if your wall existed."

True, and that trend led to what we see in politics, business and academia in America today.

Such cavalier trends tend to be straightened out once in a while. Idolatrous empires were built, somewhat, over long periods of time punctuated by repeated depositions that happened within days, each, and eventually, final depositions. It appears that cheerleaders for such empires have been unopposed at setting themselves up as imposters of moral authority since about 722 BCE. Ethnic vestiges continue to exaggerate vainglories of those fluctuating empires in ongoing revisions.

See the changes coming in our countries of northwestern culture, momentarily usurped again—changes to possibly spread throughout the world. Many folks, currently influential at various levels, are very afraid of those possible changes ahead. It shows in hysterical, licentious outbursts in contemporary political speech and entertainment. In sum, they’re shrieking about the end of the world (”as seen on TV”), when they only feel the end of their kind of world (see bouncy empires) coming and vainly lack the ability to analyze the situation honestly.

Good Lord - I heard the Seattle Symphony do their first ever performance of Walton’s “Belshazzar’s Feast” back in probably 1967, when a quarter of the audience got up and walked - hope at least that many left this performance.....

I was referring to the European foreign culture that has already taken over during the past few decades in politics, business and academia. It flowed into the northeast, and much of it hopped over to California. Although some descendants of those folks are ingenuous, the future will be built by the kind of people who brought more encouragement toward ingenuity to early America.

My point is that we should all try to be Americans like those who founded our nation instead of turning it into some extension of southern European or associated Balkan culture. Slavery is not suitable for us. Assimilate before leading.

I am very familiar with this song, as I was teaching teens when this came out and had teenagers of my own. It is, IMO, a disgusting, disrespectful song. As for the women putting themselves up on stage to be degraded, well, that seems to be a big trend these days.

I am, BTW, a boomer lady who had a passion for what we called rock ‘n’ roll in her teens and who has always loved to dance to popular tunes. But I see a difference between having fun dancing and being suggestive and profane in one’s movements.

I guess we will have to agree to disagree.

Guess it is the Libertarian in me. The guy who is doing the womanizing is surrounded by women who are more than happy, for free, to shake their butt. If the guy singing and the rump shakers are having fun, who is to say it is wrong? He clearly says he doesn’t touch. He isn’t going around copping a feel.
