“The Get Down” shows a similar mastery for sampling and tagging, borrowing from every possible source — the imaginary conflict ballets of “West Side Story” to the situational junkyard ethics of “Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.”. To that you can add the Eastern mysticism of martial arts movies, the full glory of Travolta-era disco, and the “Ford to City: Drop Dead” days of New York’s urban malaise. It’s the very grit that gave life to so much late 20th-century culture; the same grit “Vinyl” tried to harness as a narrative backdrop.
Getting closer to the achy-breaky end zone, there’s also Prometheus Brown of Seattle rap group the Blue Scholars’ rebuttal to custom made wood monogram personalized ballet shoes ornament ballet christmas ornament Brad Paisley and LL Cool J’s country-rap misfire “Accidental Racist,” called “Racist Accident.”, “Achy Breaky 2,” however, falls down utterly as an answer song because it is neither timely nor pointed, In fact, Buck 22 has nothing to say about the original “Achy Breaky Heart” except for Look!

ACHIEVEMENTS. SCHOOL NEWS. • The Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA is offering a free Animal Camp to children 9-12 years old who live in East Palo Alto and surrounding areas, July 3 through July 7. (No camp on July 4.) “For years we’ve held our Animal Camps at our shelter, but realized many children may not be able to make it to our shelter every day, so we have taken the camp on the road to the East Palo Alto area,” said PHS/SPCA Communications Manager Buffy Martin Tarbox. Children can learn about animal welfare, interact with animals and make pet toys. The camp will be held at Willow Oaks School, 620 Willow Road, Menlo Park. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis, and is limited to 20 students. Camp is from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each day.
