Finally a post on old school cool that deserves to be here. Fresh as hell.

I still have Stevie wonders harmonica that my mom passed down to me. I’m an up and coming trumpet player in the Davis family line!

Yes sir! Maurice Davis! He played with them.

Ohh shit your grandpa is a fucking legend my man.

She has such recognizable eye/cheek bone area. I could’ve guessed the actress from just that

She’s such a phenomenal actress.

Haha downtown

And clenching your fist for the ones like us Who are oppressed by the figures of beauty You fixed yourself, you said, "Well never mind, We are ugly but we have the music".

"Ah but you got away, didn't you babe You just turned your back on the crowd You got away, I never once heard you say I need you, I don't need you I need you, I don't need you And all of that jiving around" L. Cohen

Happy Birthday to her! She would have been 75 yesterday...

Well, she wasn't a looker, but she had a lot of charisma when singing

Samurai of the Satsuma clan (1863)

Samurai of the Satsuma clan (1863)

Left to right: Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, Raphael

satsuma was the name of a large region in south japan

the samurai from satsuma were the hardest of hardcore. they were really nuts. they were famous for using incredible strength when cutting with their swords, as opposed to other samurai in japan of the time who were mostly relying on form and technique.

you can get an idea of what they were like by checking out "jigen ryu" on youtube. they scream like maniacs but imagine if someone started swinging a sword at you and screaming like that, it wouldn't be so funny anymore.

Take this piece of paper. I dare you.

Are they named after their orange groves, or are their orange groves named after them?

You're not kidding. I don't really mind that this sub has turned into "hey look at my hot parents/grandparents!" But for fucks sake it is not the place to guilt-trip Reddit into increasing your mom's self esteem.

This is sad.

I hope my kids never get this idea.

Wilt, Arnold, and Andre, 1982

Wilt, Arnold, and Andre, 1982

Try not to forget that Arnold is HUGE.

Note: This is from the set of Conan the Destroyer. A lot of people were surprised to learn Andre was in that movie. He's inside the monster suit of 'Dagoth' at the very end but his face is never shown. They had trouble finding a stunt man big enough for the monster suit, so on a whim they checked to see if Andre was available. He was and said he'd come down and knock it out real quick 4 them.

TL/DR: The time Andre the Giant did Arnold a solid.

love the darts in Andres pocket.

I remember when they changed the camera angle of the player receiving the serve, because Martina had the most marvelous muscular ass and legs.

That caused some controversy just now. I'll be right back.
