Oh So You Think You Can Dance, how I love thee!
Did you watch it tonight? Did you SEE the dancing? Met the cast? Why does this show bring me such joy? I mean really, I can't even explain the happiness and rapture that I feel knowing that it will be a SYTYCD show night. And you should know, I am NOT a dancer in any way shape or form. In fact, I can safely say....I suck. But, I so love it. You should also know...Wade Robson is TOTALLY my boyfriend. Something about him and his choreographing is just so freaking hot and bizarre, and wrong and wonderful! So, imagine my joy when the opening number of the show began and I could just TELL it was a Wade Robson number. It was, in a word.....AWESOME!
Well, let's discuss the cast. I'll share MY opinion and then YOU can tell me yours. Like, who is your favorite? Why?
My favorite Boy: Neil. Oh what? He's not a new contestant? My bad. But, i do love him. Ok, if you MUST know, I think my favorite is a tie between:
Kent - He's just adorable, and I think he's rather talented.
Awkward moment: Kat asking him "what his ideal woman is." Ummmmm, did she mean to ask "man?" Just sayin.
Alex - His body is beautiful, his dancing is stunning.
My favorite girl: Alexie. She is just adorable, and she reminds me VERY much of one of my students.
Rest of the cast:
Lauren - she's from AZ, therefore, automatically awesome and worthwhile of my support. I have this thing, if anyone is ever from AZ, I am crazy diehard supportive! I like a person to represent YO!
Ok fine, the rest of the girls escape me. i guess that's because I really don't care about them. The tapper girl is just wierd. One of those "artisty" type that takes themselves and life WAY to seriously.
Billy Bell - he dances amazingly, beautifully, stunningly. I'm sure he's the sweetest boy ever. However, i'd appreciate it if he just didn't speak, because, to quote a favorite movie line ever "he's too gay to function." I'm not judging, simply observing. The end.
Jose - I was surprised by him tonight. I think I shall actually quite like him. Though I could really do without the corn rows. I HATE corn rows. 'nuff said
Rob - He's pretty. Don't know anything else about him at all.
Adichik - or whatever the hell that name is. Again, don't know much about him. Other than, DID YOU SEE the bright neon pink curtains hanging in his house when they came to deliver the news? YIKES! But, I'm sure he's a delight and I'll be anxious to see how he does.
All-stars: Happy to see them all back, especially Neil and Allison. But, I could absolutely do without Comfort. REALLY? Allstar? I think not.
Tonights dances: I liked them all, except Mias. I know right? But I felt like it was mostly just flopping around, as opposed to som real dance moves. I mean, this is just my professional opinion. hee hee
Realllly liked the naughty threesome ballroom. Surprisingly good. And the last one about the freaks.
Ok, there you have it. My official and first review of the summers GREATEST show. Please, feel free to join in the discussion.
Change of topics:
For enquiring minds, the gym I go to is:
24 hour fitness.
It's a rather nice and lovely gym. And though I have handpicked out a few "special" cases, I PROMISE that it really is full of a lot of normal exercisers of every kind. I enjoy going there A LOT. But, I did see this morning Sister flower pants and Sir Flops, sweatin and workin it. And you're right Urban Cowboy...he is TOTALLY a 70's porn wannabe. Oh, and crazy purse lady, she was there....WEARING the purse on her shoulder on each machine she did. Seriously?
MANY of you have INSISTED that I somehow take pictures of these people at the gym. And while I can understand your desire to see my "friends" I would pose this question. How in THEE heck do you propose I procure said pictures. I just can't see Floppers (did I mention he also likes to wear an awesome "weight belt" cinched around his waist?) being ok with me just pulling out the Canon and yelling "say cheese." Well, come to think of it, he just MIGHT be ok with it. BUT, would my camera survive. Anyway, I just don't know how to accomplish it stealthily enough. So, in the meantime, you will just HAVE to use your healthy imaginations.
In other gym news....I did sprints on the treadmill today at an 8.5. It was awesome. Truth is, it actually feels much better for me to sprint, rather than just run at a 5.5. It's wierd, but true.
Workshop is allll ready to go. I finished the lighting today, and i have to give a huge shoutout to my nephew Jamyn. He literally learned how to do it (program the light board) in 1/2 hour and he was soo quick and genius at it. It has made my job soo much easier. So, tomorrow night is our first show. I think it's gonna be a good one.
With that said, I must sign off, check my workout for tomorrow, and perhaps go to bed.
