Goodbye

Saying “goodbye” is one of the hardest things to do in life.

That is why I like to say “goodbye” with awkward dance moves and a little bit of sweat.

Enjoy!

Thanks to David and Jen for hanging out, having some fun, and not laughing at my “dance” moves (too much). It’s pretty funny that we filmed a video for “Bye Bye Bye” and “Gangsta’s Paradise” on the same day. Diversity is the spice of life. Yo.

Goodbye

On a related note, which is the best boy band of all time? Here is your answer.

Awkward White Guy Rap (IX) – DMX

If I had to choose one song that defined my childhood, it probably wouldn’t be the “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem” by DMX.  However, I love this song and once I even used it as a “cheerleading” chant at a student council leadership workshop (after a few lyrical edits, of course).

International Pool Tour World 8-Ball Championship

The “Anthem” was DMX’s first big hit.  Although he’s largely been left out of the pantheon of rap legends, he filled a huge void in the rap game after the deaths of Biggie and Tupac.  He also helped pass the torch from those icons to guys like Eminem, Kanye, and Jay-Z in the 21st Century.  So, DMX, wherever you are (jail, I think), thanks, dude.  We miss you.

So here’s the newest edition of “Awkard White Guy Raps.”  I would have normally done a few more takes to find one that was less awful, but Amanda made this cut pretty memorable.  Enjoy!
