The Old To The New,
The New To The Old


Well,
Some Of You Might Remember
That Magnificent Italian Cartoon From The Seventies
La Linéa

video

if You Don't
It Seems That
Lil X
One Of The Hip Hop Video's Top Notch Directors
Remember It Quite Well

He Put A Little Hip Hop Twist In It
(Too Much Hipster Flavored Maybe?)
For This New Common Video

video

Hopefully Common will Get The Success
(Money?)
He's Been Strugglin' For This Last Decade
And Will Get The Chance To Have His Own Tour
And Not Opening Young Kanye Show,
Hopefully...

After No ID, Dilla, Kanye,
It's Pharrell On The Board This Time,
The Tracks That Have Leaked Here And There
Give A Preview Of What Could Be A great Album
Better Than "BE"
Hopefully...


I'm Sure At Least
Martini And Jopparelli
At
Music Selections Blog Extraodinaire
Do Remember

Don't You?

Of course I do remember it!

I watched that cartoon for hours and hours when I was a kid...

We had some really cool graphic stuff in Italy back then, nowadays it seems most of the trademark italian creativity is missing...

Anyway, props to Mass for bringing back La Linea to people's attention!

Yeah, I used to laugh a lot for this simple but totally smart cartoon.

He speaks Milan dialect (where we are from) in a really funny way.

Thanks to bring back some good old memory.

Take care

Jamiroquai used "la Linéa" concept before common did: clip of his "Don't Give Hate a Chance" (2005)
