I respect my readership, and trust that you are up on the latest pop cultural phenomenon called Jersey Shore. A new season of the show debuts tonight. As the Book of Revelation states, after Pestilence, War, Famine, Death, vision of martyrs and Cosmic disturbances comes Jersey Shore.
Unfortunately, I will not be watching tonight, but as a service, here's a little Top 5 list of guido fist pump anthems to get you, ummm, pumped. If you never heard of the term "guido fist pump", it's when a group of Rhodes Scholars from Oxford stand in a group and rise their clinched fists in the air in unison.
As somebody who resides in the Garden State and is of Italian origin, I am well familiar with the practice. All joking aside, the guido scene hasn't changed since the late 80s and early 90s. Even Springsteen sang in 4th of July, Asbury Park -- "And the boys from the casino dance with their shirts open like Latin lovers along the shore. Chasin' all them silly New York girls"
Likewise, their music of choice hasn't changed. Grab your FourLokos, bros:
5. Technotronic, Pump Up the Jam
4. 20 Fingers & Roula, Lick It
3. Outhere Brothers, Boom Boom Boom
2. La Bouche, Be My Lover
1. Reel 2 Reel, I Like To Move It
