Beez in trap w Schoolhouse Rock electricity


at about 3:15 of a 4 min song, minaj mentions the place of my birth, Chicago, but she calls it “shy town”

In my youth although I did watch too much tv, we had Schoolhouse Rock, especially the Bob Dorough meloldies. People my age still be quoting “conjunction,junction” and “i’m just a bill” for instance. The other day I was channel surfing, 40 years later, and just to stay current I taped a Nicki Minaj special, a compilation of her videos. I notice that this one, “Beez in the Trap” in the end of the song, she shouts out the names, perhaps even by heart, 21 geographic references: Chicago, Hoboken, St. Louis, et cetera. Maybe there is a 10-year-old reciting somewhere this list for her geography class.
(Maybe I’ll update with the complete list; and I sort of missed the part but can edit to add which states Miss Minaj says has the most bees. The version on the internet has more info than the one I taped off tv. (Mommy, what does “explicit” mean?)


This was wholesome educational art media but in this context, even as the “before” it looks a little kinky, or is that just me? This is Schoolhouse Rock, with music by Bob Dorough. “Electricity” featuring Ben Franklin

Don’t watch this unless you think you can last the full 4 minutes, and if you have the permission of your parents, if they are still alive:

Interestingly, this starts by wanting out of “the dark”.

CNN showed last night the “RBG” film that I had seen most of in the theatre one night, at Palo Alto Square and I noticed it had music by Dessa.

andand but not anaconda: ten minutes later, and I’m a trying to get out of here, to get to the city, to the Performing Arts Library and the Phil ElWood archive, but I peeped my Ann Powers book and sho nuff it refs Nicki and sends me to see, as the 800 millionth visitor “Anaconda” and I only lasted two minutes of the four but maybe we can sequel to “Conjunction, junction” assuming, once I check my Webster’s Ninth that “but” qualifies, w “Anaconda” which wood be a visual pun.
