100 Facts in 100 Days: Fact 90

Posted on January 28, 2007 @ 8:13 am

90. When I was nine years old, I ruined my parents’ collection of Beach Boys 45s — and my own turntable — because I was certain I could learn to cut and scratch like a hip-hop DJ if I set my mind to it. I can’t recall Phase Two of my plan, but I assume it involved finding an MC willing to bust a few rhymes over the looped guitar riff from “Help Me, Rhonda.”

    Well, at least you had a valid reason…

    Tee hee! I swear to God when I have kids I’m going to put everything I love into storage until they have LEFT HOME! I hope they forgave you in the end :) Roo x

    If those had been Beatles albums and I had been your parents I would have immediately put you up for adoption. The Beach Boys I can forgive. BARELY. ;D

    That’s funny! I ruined my record player, because I thought I could turn clay made out of flour and water and make some killer pots or something. It didn’t work too well.

    What a great concept for a post! I love little factoids and if those factoids can better help learn and understand whom I am reading, all the better.
