Freedom '96
2001-06-08 - 2:01 a.m.

Isn't it weird how certain songs can make you think back to certain times in your life?

For instance, they were playing "Funk Phenomena" by Armand Van Helden on the radio the other day and all I could think of was the very first time I heard it. It was at an outdoor rave called "Freedom" and it used to be held yearly during the summer at this motorcycle dirt track way out in the middle of nowhere, smack dab in the heart of farm country... anyways, it was like either July or August of '96 (or was it '97???) and I (barely) remember that it was like around 12:30PM and I was already peaking on my first hit of E that night, dancing on top of a a dirt mound (I think those motorcross guys call them berms or something)... then this song came on, and I swear to God people must've thought I was hella trippin' because I was dancing like there was no tomorrow.

I was like, "Damn, that song was the shit..." and then I grabbed my water bottle, emptied it down my throat, and went back to my tent to drop again.

And like 8 months later, St. John played that song on the radio, saying it was a "new" jam... HA! go figure...

...damn i miss those days...
