POP QUIZXZ

Q: What do these videos from Technotronic, L'Trimm and MC Luscious have in common?

\
No, not that they look like they were directed by the Paper Rad collective.

Not that Chuck Eddy perplexingly included their album in his book about metal.

No, not a thorough reminder that humping the ground is an underused dance move.

A: Cropped jacket + bike shorts + fannypack = a killer look for summer-- For dudes, ladies and those that dispute the assertion of binary gender. Judging by the amount of yoga pants and tear away track pants I see on folks, I think people are taking the "casual but active/athletic" look in the wrong direction. Let these videos serve as inspiration; try "bougie bike messenger" or "the hussy of Tae-Bo class" -- or limit yourself to spandex, leather and peace-sign medallions...you can thank me for this later.
