A Study In Movement

Interesting video timelapse of a vision for architecture.

The boring designer realizes that the glory isn’t in putting their personal stamp on everything they touch. In fact, most of the time, it’s about leaving no trace of themselves.
I think I finally found a watch I would wear. This thing is a fucking masterpiece. Metro

All-Star Lindy Hop Jack & Jill: The International Lindy Hop Championships

This will be a social dance competition open to competitors who compete at a high national/international level. Dancers have consistently placed in the top 5 at national or international level competitions. Leaders and followers will be randomly drawn to dance together to several songs of varying styles and tempos and judged as a couple as they compete in spotlight format. 

Competitors are not allowed to dance with “regular” partners, (one that they dance and/or have competed with in a choreographed routine in the last 4 years. Team routines do not count.) Social dance partners are accepted and will be considered “luck of the draw.” - from ILHC

Ann Mony & Carl Nelson

If you guys missed Ann’s Classic with Ryan Calloway, go watch it right now. Seriously. This post will still be here when you get back. I keep finding myself thinking about it and coming back to it. So good. 

Anyway, she and Carl are great together. They are just fucking dancing, you know what I mean? Like…they are just going for it. And they have such nice and, sometimes, surprising musicality not just with their footwork variations but also with the actual movement patterns that Carl is leading. This is the kind of spotlight that makes me wish the competition was over so I could just get up and dance immediately. I just really enjoyed it. 

  • 0:30 - This right here is what I am talking about! Those turns take you totally by surprise! When I was watching this, I felt like I expected one spin, then I got two and I was like, “Hey! That was nice,” but then it kept going and it just fit the music so perfectly and you can tell the audience clearly loved it as much as I did. 
  • 0:39 - The spinning chase pattern into tandem feels like a reference to the first moment that I mentioned, because the turns have such a similar feel, and again - this move felt unexpected. I love it and I fully expect people out there to be taking note and filing this one away for future use. 
  • 1:05 - I feel like they are just having so much fun dancing together! Seriously. I just want to hop in the video and dance with them. 
  • 1:13 - This little hold is perfect and I love it. That is all. 

Also, not for nothing, Ann’s bouncy hair and tulip style wrap dress make for great dance-wear and Carl looks super sharp in his suit. 

Winners: 

  1. Pamela Gaizutyte & Jamin Jackson
  2. Hyunjung Choi & Mike Roberts
  3. Moe Sakan & Felix Berghall

“Special Salad” with poached egg tonight.

Apple, avocado, spinach mix, heirloom tomato, and chèvre all mixed together with a basic homemade vinaigrette.

This was the first time I added an egg and it really rounded out the dish.
