Friday Night Videos

So this song, and this video, just stick with me. It’s one of those things where the beat tends to intrude into the mind at the most unusual times, and I must come back and watch it again. Note that while this is from a US Movie (when the feathers hit) and is purporting to show Black Africans, the average skin tone is more like 1/4 black, but the hair is clearly shouting African. It’s that peculiar American mix of Plantation Owner and Slave, a generation or two on. The “Shadow Family” of the South… In Dance. Yet Nu Skool is a bit hard to nail down. A comment says New Zealand, yet web searches say a group in San Franciso, go figure… or just watch the dance and enjoy it:

Bongo Dance! Safri Duo Played Alive

I don’t know why. I don’t care why. The song / tune just sticks with me.

Then, from a more “out there” genre:

New Order – Blue Monday (Remix)

Women are the reason men do most of what they do. If you are a woman and can’t handle being the center of our universe, Oh Well… maybe you ought to join the Army…

Holly Dolly Dolly Song Finland polka – leva’s polka )

Why do I say men ought to be men and women ought to be women? Because we are genetically programmed to love and protect women. That does not demean women, it raises them above our own life.

IMMORTAL – Thomas Bergersen (Extended Mix)

So it goes…

Dami Im – Sound of Silence

Any doubt? Just ask “What about this is not worth more than me?”

Amadeus Electric Quartet – Carmen (Habanera)

So, just Dance On! OK?

Snap! – Rhythm is a Dancer

    Then, sometimes, you have categorization issues…
    Do I call this “Strings”?
    Or “Dance”?
    Or “Sensual”?
    Or bizarre… or what?

    Then there’s folks just having fun dancing…

    @UK (us):

    OMG! I gotta get me some of their coffee! That video is just great.

    FWIW, when about 12, I converted a 5 gallon ish propane tank into a giant flame thrower…. so I’m lovin’ that black guy on the front of the cart. Harder to do it now as they put liquid blocking valves in the tanks a few years back. Now instead of just inverting the tank, I’d instead make a gasoline driven one just presurized with propane…. old water heater tank, pipes, propane torch, valve hose nozzle…. ignite and enjoy 8-)

    Surprised I wasn’t visited by the police… then again, only lit it off a couple of times and they were during TV Time, so maybe nobody saw me :-) Either that, or they just said “It’s just that Smith kid again…”

    Looks like Amazon has it rifle coffee

    I just had to put that link/video up somewhere, so out of the 15 (or so) sites I visit everyday, I had to decide whom was the most deplorable (and might enjoy it).
    You won.

    You really shouldn’t encourage me “Smith kid” :)
