LL Cool J, 1985, Maine high school gym

This is 100% my wheelhouse. I find this more interesting even than those colorized photos of early 20th century Paris. My love of this video also accurately dates me. I, right now, sound exactly how my dad did in the 80’s when he’d see footage of some doo wop show from the 50’s. Funny.

I can’t get over all of the little kids in the audience (I’d say crowd but that place is empty).
