in reply to Rap Star I would most like as my Project Manager

Hmm .. being as I was alive to enjoy Abbey Road when it was released, I can't really identify with questions about Rap Stars. About the only one I can recall enjoying (let alone identifying) is Will Smith, at the end of Men In Black and also as his persona DJ Jazzy Jeff with Parents Just Don't Understand (a great video).

I've heard of Run-DMC and some of the other artists (TuPac, Dr. Dre), but apart from that, most Rap is beyond my musical horizon. All it brings to mind is huge attitude, guns and violence. Hmm, sort of like rock'n'roll in the 70's, I guess.

I prefer hands-off Project Managers. Tell me what to do, give me the resources to do what I know how to do, let me give you a demo every once in a while (weekly at the current job -- it's great!) and everything will be peachy.

Can't really relate that to a Rap Star. You could have asked about Spanish matadors or Australian Rules Football stars and I would have been equally baffled.

    It's refreshing to see someone from the same musical era as me. I too was around when Sgt. Pepper's and Abbey Road were released. I also remember punched cards - my first programs were submitted on decks of cards.

    If Ali Gee were an option, I would have picked him, as he is parodying the whole DJ and rap thang. As it is, I would go with joshua's suggestion - "What?"

      Uh-oh - old-timer's reminiscing about punchcards alert!

      Just nod your head and say "Yeah - those Burroughs B 5000's sure were keen" and you'll get out of this alive. :)

        B7900's, best thing Burrough's ever did. Anyone managed to use Lynx on a T27?

      Punchcards?!?! At least you had punchcards...all we had were knitting needles and army surplus toilet paper...

    Umm DJ Jazzy Jeff was his partner. As in his buddy in the "Fresh Prince of Bel Air".

    And I hate (silent-c)rap.

    In that case, I'd suggest Snoop Dogg. Up until recently, he'd be too stoned to get in your face about anything. If he did, you could distract him with Cheetos.

    Still can you imagine George Clinton as a PM? He'd assemble a fat funky team that would move, flow, groove, and shake it's ass all over Planet Funk. And Bootsy'd be a developer.

    "What do I want? I'm an American. I want more."

      Now yer talkin' .. George Clinton did a wicked song called something like Do You Want Fries (With That Shake) that came with a very funny video. Very funky and groovy. If there's music in it, that's cool. The same beat pattern looped ad nauseam, a single bass note, people shouting attitude over top of each other .. I can't really get into that.

      Of course, Guess Who's American Woman was totally different from that, right? :)
