My Huh? moment for the day.

Rapper Foxy Brown's real name is Inga Marchand. I know it was probably common knowledge, but that was sort of a shocker to me.

If she performed R&B or in another genre of music other than hip hop... well, her real name is so much better than her pseudonym, because, let's face it, she certainly is no Pam Grier. To me, it seems to be a very unique name, and a shade more memorable as well, mainly because in my entire life, I've never met someone named Inga.

I am feeling so white and nerdy now for some reason.

Wow, I had no idea either. That's a pretty cool name. Well, as you said, for anyone but a hip hop artist. ;)

Inga conjures up, for me, a tall Swedish stewardess.

They don't make very good rappers.

That is a cool name, but I always found Foxy Brown attractive (And much better looking than her counterpart Lil Kim.)

But no one can beat Pam Grier in her prime

Jess: It would also be ideal for a Bond Girl.

Mr. Fab: Well, even under her stage name she wasn't that great of a rapper(my opinion on the matter after that mess that was Hot Spot).

semaj: Nothing wrong with eyeing the goods so to speak ;) And with Pam Grier... well, I think she could still probably show Foxy/Inga a thing or three.

First of all, I want to say sorry that I have not been around to comment as much; between my business trip and today's surgery, I have been so out of the loop and part of the horrid truth is that I have been avoiding blogs like the plague until I caught up with Reality TV, in case it was mentioned anywhere.

Anyway, I love her real name....Foxy Brown whatevah....Marchand is so tres French and all that shizzle.

Hilly: I know you've been unavailable as of late, so I wasn't sweating it... and as you know, I am not really big on the spilling of plot points about anything... and when I do talk about shows, I usually space it away from the original airing so people in the Tivoverse have a chance to watch it before I spill anything. I'm cagey like that.
