HumpDay Video: Adina Howard “Freak Like Me”

Id love a ride, thanks!

We here at Broke-Ass remember a kinder, gentler, funkier time when there was an entire network devoted to playing awesome new music videos. Men named Pinfield and women named Idalis would introduce block after block of original music videos from various genres interspersed with interviews with musicians and video directors, which would be followed by news and pop cultural updates delivered by an aging rocker in a suit and tie. Those days are gone, videos have given way to shows about dating, being from the Jersey Shore and the monotonous reality of blonde haired girls sipping lattes and texting people named Brody. Good music videos are being made though, and our mission is to bring you one a week on Wednesday to help you get over that hump!

You probably thought I was gonna post something like “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” or “Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time”. But you thought wrong.  Today’s is a flashback video suggested by one of my oldest and dearest friends Adam Ronald Jones.  The man knows a good 90’s dance track.  For my own part I remember watching this video in 1995 and  thinking that this was probably what adulthood was like: being comfortable talking about the “freakiness” that was inside you and driving around in  Mercedes with your girls on your way to a house party where inexplicably, all the lights are on.  Oh, and peasant blouses.

Well it was a pleasant fantasy while it lasted.

Have a Merry Freaky Christmas.  Cause it’s all about the dog in you.

Like most kids, Ashley grew up in New Jersey. Unlike most kids the Friedman's televison set acted as a third parent, imbuing young Ashley with the stern moral values of Claire Huxtable, the dramatic tendencies of Brenda Walsh and the earnest hopefulness of the blond kid on Silver Spoons. After graduating from Sarah Lawrence Ashley made her way to the Park Slope area of Brooklyn where she can currently be found reading foreign fashion magazines, scouring ebay for vintage heels, eating out in restaurants and otherwise stretching her meager income as far as it will go in NYC.
