I’m very, very slowly writing my [livejournal.com profile] summer_of_giles and don’t really have anything new to report. But for the sake of waving to people ,I thought I’d share one of the few clips on YouTube that I actually have bookmarked.

I am a terrible dancer, but I love watching people who really can. And if it’s a bunch of gorgeous boys (and a few girls) who are doing the dancing, so much the better. Check out Al Blackstone’s Not For Me from the 2015 Fire Island Dance Festival. You could say it’s a tale of self discovery in dance that’s funny, sweet, hot, just a little naughty and generally gorgeous. And at just over 8 minutes, it’s not going to take a huge amount of time out of your day.

And the bonus for me is that it’s got the divine Jakob Karr in it – he’s the first guy to appear in a towel and not much else at the start of the locker room scene. The things that boy can do with his legs…

Check it out and enjoy the fun.

I'm a hideous dancer as well (and how I ended up as a dancer in a band's stage show is still a question with no good answer), but I love to see the job well done. I got to see Gregory Hines onstage in Sophisticated Ladies. Oh my god. You can't imagine. I was in the 2nd row... I will never forget it.

Well you can't have been that hideous if you ended up in a show! *g*

The Gregory Hines show must have been wonderful - I'm very jealous!

Bless your heart. But, with all the love in the world I still have for the late lead singer/drummer... they were about as gifted musically (in the technical sense) as I am at dancing. Oh did he have presence, though, and the fans simply adored him. Also, no one ever commented on my klutzy awkwardness.

Gregory Hines... it was like seeing something from another world. You can't imagine.

Hey love, well this just shows I haven't been online much as I've just noticed your comment.

I'm fine thank you.Busy, busy but gradually getting settled back into west coat life - it's 30 degrees here today - melts!

Hope you are doing well yourself!

Waves madly.
