Roller Skating with Biz Markie 6/24/2017

Last night I decided to trek down to Penns Landing for my weekly skating. I didn't realize there was also a carnival going on the DJ for the evening was Biz Markie. Biz Markie was known as the clown of hip-hop in the 1980s and his hit was "Just a Friend." As a refresher:

Naturally, the rink was crowded. Very, very, very crowded. I was shocked with how crowded it was. I even took pictures of the crowds:

I still skated and I was amazing. I skated without holding on! After a few times around the rink, I heard my name being called. I thought I was hearing things because I didn't know anyone on the rink. I turned around and it was my co-worker from the full-time job calling me. I skated over to her and her boyfriend and we chatted for a bit. They were enjoying Biz Markie. Of course, I had to get a selfie.

I spent the rest of the evening skating and dancing before I fell. I went to fast. It was so crowded that there wasn't much room for dancing.

I had such an amazing time!


  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    You weren't kidding. It really was crowded down at Penn's Landing, but it looks like a great time was had by all. I wasn't into rap nearly as much in the 80s and I don't remember Biz Markie or his song/video "Just a Friend." It was fun to watch and the message rings true. I had a g.f. who pulled that "he's just a friend" bit on me and it turned out the guy she was hangin' wit was much more. I can tell you had fun listening to Biz doing Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" and other rap classics while you skated.

    Have a wonderful week, dear friend JM!

    1. I remember when some rapper remade Biz Markie's "Just a Friend" in 2002 and I remember liking it. That is when I first had a burner and I remember discovering Biz Markie then. I was only familiar with "Just a Friend." Good times back then. :)

      I know I've been guilty of that! And I know guys have been guilty of that as well. I think we are all equally guilty with pulling that stunt.

      I love classic rap. :) It was so much fun!

      Thank you, dear friend! You too!
