Hey Regina.

Great choices! You know I especially like dthat Will-I-Am video. I loved it when it first came out because I think it does such a great job of capturing the spirit of this thing.

Happy OSF!

Learning something new everyday. Had no idea Donnie and Kirk remade Ooh Child. Nice pick! And I certainly hope that is the case!

Also loving the Will pick.

Happy OSF!

Regina, great choices!!

Malcolm 31 October, 2008 13:51

Solid choices this week. I really enjoyed the remake of "Ooh Child".

At about the 1:15 mark of the "We Are One" clip, I thought believe the guy who says "I would like to see us in a world without fear" is actor Troy Garrity (Jane Fonda's son). You may remember him as Isaac in the "Barbershop" movies.

I LOVE IT...of course Regina you know "iriegal" had to do the REGGAE MON!
