Boys and Girls: Duffer's Guide to the Difference
« on: October 06, 2017, 10:27:06 AM »

Fall in love with the Femlin and understand how simple to tell which is which and what's what. Howerer, as Saul is reputed to have said, roughly: nobody knows what's what, and by the time they know what's what it's too late.

Rob, you'd probably love this. I do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9RpxjI3AtM

If I tried that nowadays they'd have me on a stretcher.

Thanks, Russ, I am familiar with that clip for it's been on my list for quite a long time. The video, not any attempted dancing! Even young I could never have moved at that rate, even if I'd been able to remember the steps. I had this difficulty with synching my eyes and my feet: as a child of perhaps thirteen, I was once put in goal and when the ball came rolling towards me I ran at it and kicked and missed. I wasn't in goal again after that.

It has always interested me to see that this sort of dance appears, today, to be far more popular in parts of European where they have contests, and also on the Internet, than back where it all began, in the States. At least, Europe sems to provide more such videos as far as I can discover them.

But then France was very much more into jazz than other parts of Europe, and the UK only got back into the New Orleans style of music during the late 40s, and the 50s saw it boom and bust. As with so much, it appears that the people who originate something lose interest early: why otherwise would black Americans ignore jazz music today, and go for rap and stuff like that when their heritage has such depth of emotion and so many skilled musicians to its credit. Jazz, swing, blues, it all came from the same source even though some white guys were pretty good at it too. I suppose I can answer my own question: they follow the money; they have to.

Salsa, not what you would expect. Britain's got talent.

Cheers,

I admire the old chick's athleticism and wish I could compete! At 80, we share a number, but not our preservation levels.

On the other hand, I hate the show format and the ego-fighting for camera time with all the false enthusiasm and gestures; it's what stops me watching tv apart from news and some few foreign (non-British/US) series such as the French Engrenages, whose sixth series I await with growing impatience.

Entertainment tv is a classic case of sparkle overtaking content.

My observation on life for today. ;-(

P.S.
Actually, the clip demonstrates a point I made in a post elsewhere about the horror of make-up on lived-in faces. It does zero for the "older" woman who almost invaribly looks better with her honest personality than a ridiculous fake.
