You know Clay,
Your hat is on backwards. . . I know, your favorite Hip Hop "artist" wears it that way but.............
My bet is that one of those guys saw a photographer turn their hat around because the bill gets in the way when you try to look thru the viewfinder. Since they're not overly creative they tend to look for ways they can take clothing from years ago, make them disfunctional and pretend that is style. That is definitely the basis for what they do to their cars. Four wheel drive trucks that are lowered and have spinners with ultra low profile tires. . . good idea.. . cough. Or what that ass did to the Porsche in Denver, hideous.
I was shooting a golf course in California, standing by the 18th green when a father and son walked up. The kid had his hat on backwards and when he got behind his ball to line up the putt the sun was in his eyes. Rather than turn the hat around so that the design would work for him he held his hands up to block the sun so he could see. I had to bite a hole in my lip to keep from laughing out loud, here was a definition of the difference between 2 generations in 1 photograph(the father's hat was worn correctly so he didn't have a problem with the sun) and my camera was in the cart. I guess I could have got him to pose for a shot but it wouldn't have been the same.
Anyway, glad to see you don't have one of those shell neclaces and you haven't f* up that Mazda by putting spinners on it. You look like a decent kid, you should leave the dark side and join us on the more conservative side. You can be way ahead of your peers if you do, everyone knows that when you hit 40 and you have a brain, you become a conservative.
Oh and one other thing, advice from an old guy, get rid of the hat and let the hair grow out while you still can. When you get old and lose it you can always wear a hat to cover the bald spot but while you have it enjoy it. My hair was below my shoulders when I was your age.
How do you know it's a 2005 Zoom??????
Backwards hats aren't really a "hip-hop" thing as they are part of this generation's fashion. Just like the Beatles had everyone cutting their hair different. Now if I had a really ostentatious hat with the price-tag still on it, that would be more hip-hop influenced.
I don't do long hair well, it annoys me, just like growing a beard does.
Thanks for the rest of the advice, I suppose.
So I was trying to look up the origin for why people started wearing baseball hats backwards, and while the only explanation I could find was because catchers wear them that way, I did find about 5 or 6 excerpts where people were really pissed off when they saw someone with a backwards hat on.
I had no idea. Seems kind of silly to me, but I guess as I age I'll find something about the generations after me to hate as well. So goes the cycle of life, no?
Your hat wasn't backwards...it was worn fireman's style.
Sometimes a hat with a bill to the back just 'looks better'
Before that bowel movement known at the time as rap appeared, nobody but photographers and baseball catchers wore their baseball hat backwards. It was also rare to see a black person driving an SUV. Rap videos changed all that. There were some people that wore their hat sideways but it was usually an ass ridiculing a mentally challenged person.
I don't believe that for one minute...My brother wore his hat backwards in 1979...
You're so very bitter about this, and I don't really understand why.
