“What duh phuque is this “Southern Girl”? How do Dallas be the south and why do it with a Philly beatbox? But beyond that, what should we call the remix, which is done by a Hungarian-born Swede? And what does it matter whatever are the answers to these questions?”

Hey Kalamu;

Nuthin’ matters…but then again everything does. In this existence that we call life, things ain’t always literal. She/we /thee speak in meta4. Not babalonian babble. We make this borrowed tongue our own through Pun/ the P Fun(k).

Southern is the direction we hail from, back in our beginnings. We all got our roots from *down South* here in the “use-us-eh” – from slave array.

What you say?

We be industrialized
Detroit read, mowed down,
philly bread,
MOVED around
trying to do better
in a blue collar town
like grandma said.

Got our hair dyed & fried, fore our Nation got downsized
with de smoke in our eyes, we didn’t see the remix as a techno spell

but we still be.

Sun people. Southern folk. children of Punt/ Ptah’s dark stars. No matter how far we wander. Or where we be so-called “living”.

Our South is an inward direction. It’s home.

southern girl, 2.

Yes indeedy, from a DeeCee baybee who’s now taken temporary root in Illadelph, I’m feeling this.

Me? Not Southern in the least, yet I manifest more than a few traits and ways that can be distinctly referenced as being carried genetically from my Southern (& transcontinental) connections.

And how about a Hungarian giving the remix a gogo-like swing? Music is a universal language, indeed!
