I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

THE DAHL HAUS PRESENTS: BODY 4 DAZE




























































U CAN'T TOUCH THIS





"U Can't Touch This" is MC Hammer's
1990 super hit signature song, from his album Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em. The album
sold more than 10 million copies,[1] due primarily to this single, and gaining multi-platinum certifications from the RIAA, and other Recording
Industries.





Rick James sued Hammer for infringement of copyright, as the song
basically consists of the prominent openingriff of
"Super Freak", which is constantly repeated throughout.
The suit was settled out of court when Hammer agreed to credit James as
co-composer, effectively cutting James in on the millions of dollars the record
was earning. James was accordingly credited as a co-author.





The song
received its debut live performance on a late 1989 episode of The Arsenio Hall Show.[2] The lyrics describe the rapper as having "toured
around the world, from London to the Bay" and as being "magic on the
mic", which Hammer says combines with Rick James' "beat that you
can't touch". It secured the Grammy Awards forBest R&B
Song
 and Best Rap Solo Performance in
1991, a brand new category at the time. The song was a huge success chart wise:
it reached #1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles &
Tracks
 and #8 on the Billboard Hot
100
.[3] The single was also a big success in other parts of
the world, peaking at #1 in Australia, the Netherlands and Sweden, and #3 on
the UK singles chart.[4]





A 1990 compilation
album
 of then-current chart hits was released in Australia by EMI under this title,
which also featured the song as the first track. The German translation Halt!
Hammerzeit is a known internet meme.[5] "Weird Al" Yankovic's parody of
the song, "I Can't Watch This", overlaid lyrics
about bad TV-watching over the song's music track.





The song's
lyrics and catchphrases became common pop culture references,
making sometimes obvious, sometimes subtle appearances on TV, movies, and pop
culture generally. "You can't touch this" and "Stop... Hammer
time!" in particular, were widely used. Hammertime,
from a lyric in the song, became the title of a reality show,
featuring M.C. Hammer, on the A&E
Network
 in the summer of 2009.[6]





During 2008,
the song ranked as number 26 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop and number 16 on
their list of 100 Greatest Songs of the '90s.[7]


Most
recently, in 2010, the song ranked as #6 on AOL Radio's
list of the 100 Worst Songs Ever, with Matthew Wilkening telling the late Rick
James in spirit: "If someone did this to your wonderful work of music, you
might choose crack, too."

Gems

million
















When human
forces discover the existence of the Vampire and Lycan clans, a war to
eradicate both species commences. The vampire warrioress Selene leads the
battle against humankind.








What's Good About the
Movie: 
Kate
Beckinsale still looks supernaturally good in a patent leather cat suit in Underworld:
Awakening
, the franchise's fourth chapter, which was shot in 3-D, but is
one-dimensional in every other sense. The movie is set amidst a battle between
humankind, drop-undead gorgeous vampires, and feral werewolves. Why are they
fighting again? Never you mind. Just sit tight till the next action sequence
(it won't be long), and get ready to laugh — with equal parts scorn and fanboy
joy — as Beckinsale strikes another Rodinesque pose under a slo-mo shower of
inhuman innards





What's Bad About
the Movie:
Just the fact that Scott Speedman opted out of
this film.





Overall
Grade: A-
