|That's really me... in Jr. High in all my Band Uniform glory.|
We weren't allowed to listen to rock music in our house, no rap, no rock, no metal bands, but my brother was good to me and would slip me tapes marked "Bach" that were mixes of banned music. There was one thing all the kids in Band loved, and that was Queen Latifah and Beastie Boys. While we were lining up on the field to march and practice, all the kids would be beat boxing and rapping. Meanwhile, I would stand off to the side, praying that band practice would be over with soon and that my dad wouldn't pick me up in a car with cases of toilet paper strapped to the roof.
I loved everything about the show, the format, the guests, and especially the set. The set was designed by Lenny Kravitz and is a total feast for the eyes. I'll show you more of the set in another post, it is unbelievable. I had to pinch myself while I was wandering around on the set. I am incredibly lucky, and feel my good fortune has come from learning to say "Yes" to the opportunities that came my way during "The Yes Project."
I want to know if you ever had one of those, "If they could see me now moments... " Tell me about it in the comments!
