Still a winner, that GIFReplyDelete
Googlegerät searching for the ur-video this .gif comes from yields many references to 'Salt 'n Pepa'. So:ReplyDelete
Q: Is it true that Ishiguro is responsible for Salt 'n Pepa? And, do Cheryl and Sandra, Spinderella and Latonya read his work?
A: Yes, famed novelist Kauzo ("Wasabi") Ishiguro has been a siginificant influence on the Hip-Hop phenomenon known as 'Salt-n-Pepa'.
Ishiguro's involvement with pop music can be traced back to 1972-73, when he was touring the United States, solo performing and sending demo tapes to record companies (Wikipedia). Choosing between a music or writing career was a tough call for young Kauzo, but the typewriter won out over do-wop backup vocalization and he began work on a Bachelors in Literature in the UK in 1974 (Wikipedia).
The connections between S&P's albums and "Wasabi's" novels are amazingly clear to the discerning and sensitive reader.
Dog, you're multi-lingual: the May speech piece is utterly more interesting and informative than what the Brit media has been serving up, regardless of perspective.Delete
