  1. Lindy hop workshops and pain

    Well, DT and I went to a Lindy Hop workshop on Saturday. Our first one, even after all this time because they're always on Sundays and we can't do Sundays! :mad:
    Anyway, Swingland had a Saturday one upstairs at the Bedford in Balham.
    Not knowing what to expect (never having been to one of their classes), I was pleasantly surprised to find that they stuck to 8-count and Charleston footwork; Maybe I'm turning into a Lindy snob, but it annoys the cr4p out of me when people teach 6-count! ...
  2. Interesting News ... please add your comments

    [url=]Oh No the Daily Mail[/url] has attracted a record number of complaints about their reporting after Stephen Gatelys death. Jan Moir's article said Gately's death struck a blow to the "happy-ever-after myth of civil partnerships". Um...being dead will tend to bring any relationship to a halt, what else can she mean?

  3. wot i watch at the weekend

    Saturday night. Went to the pictures - as they say in Scotland. Went to see "Fame" in fact. For those of you too young to know, its been done before as a TV series and Film.

The "lives outside achool" were mostly pointless/unresolved/lame/cheap plot threads - so story wise I'd give it ...
  4. Observations on New York/ers

    Well, my first visit to the good ol' US of A is over and certainly some of my ideas of what it would be like have been blown away.

    [LIST][*]I certainly didn't see as many burger-eating fatties as I expected.:blush: In fact, the majority of people I saw were fairly fit (including a lot of joggers). There were fast-food places and coffee bars all over the place, but they all had the calorie content of everything printed too.[*]Before I left, I read a report that said that the Subway is ...
  5. More Jump, Jive n Boogie

    I nearly forgot, a new experience this weekend...
    We decided to do as many lessons as we could, regardless of whether they were needed or not; but before the beginners MJ class could even start, DT had an idea. Why don't we fix partners and swap roles?
    Well, apart from being thrown around by a sozzled snowwhite once, I've never tried following. For someone who's used to leading, it's not easy to let go and be led. :sick:
    But DT did an admirable job shoving me around ...
