This is going to be a super strong season, I think--I hate to see pretty much any of them go, because I want to see more from each of them!

and the winner is... )

I got less than five hours of sleep last night and I forgot my glasses today.  It's going to be a long, headachy day...  In my own dance news, my new dance sneakers arrived last night and I wore them around the apartment to break them in a little--so glad I bought them!  They are not at all attractive, though as M said if I ever take up hip hop I'm all set for footwear.  But they provide a lot of support while still allowing flexibility, and the turning spot on the ball of the foot is pretty excellent.  I was doing pirouettes all night.  They will get a lot of use this weekend.

Wow, I am going to get soaked tonight.  I have an umbrella, but.

I have had no time to write my varied thoughts on SYTYCD; this morning started with an overflowing clogged toilet, and it hasn't gone far uphill from there.  On the positive side, I did keep the toilet water (not remotely to be confused with eau du toilette) from flowing out onto the hardwood floors, and I have kicked Access' arse at work today.  Anyway:

Argh, not only I am going to get soaked but my meleya and veil and fans are going to get soaked too...

It was an interesting show last night.

How annoying that Project Runway and the SYTYCD results show are on at the same time tonight.  Fox and Lifetime must be affiliated, because commercials for PR were running before SYTYCD--why set up that conflict?  Bad TV execs!

so you think you can dance... dance... dance... )

In other news, I've listened to the new M.I.A. album, and I like a lot about half of it, the loud abrasive non-autotuned half.  Not so convinced by the softer side.  As far as the singing and autotuning go, her unique voice has always been a major draw for me, and this material detracts from that.  Only listened to it through once though, so I'll give those songs some more chances.

I am currently reading China Miéville's The City & The City--to the writer of the cover blurb that says the book is the lost love child of Philip K. Dick and Raymond Chandler raised by Franz Kafka, I say yes, that's exactly it, and oh yes, I am loving it.  About a third of the way in so far.

Oh, and last night was SYTYCD.  SYTYCD spoilers )

It made it all the way down to 82 in the house this morning, so the ferrets got to come out and do their own dancing for a bit.  Happy weasels!

Alex Wong was off the hook last nightif I were mary murphy I'd scream! )

One of the numbers was to the second new M.I.A. single, XXXO, first time I'd heard it.  Not so impressed, rather commercially bland for her.  That probably wasn't the whole song, though.

This earl grey and lavender tea I am drinking is so good I might have another cup, but then my tummy will hate me :-\

I have not been able to do my usual SYTYCD posts as I've been busy at work and also exhausted.  But brief thoughts on this week...  thoughts )
Looking forward to dancing myself all weekend, with the Mohammed El-Hosseny workshops and show.  Working on my piece last night was eh, but I had just walked a mile in the 90 degree oppressive pre-thunderstorm heat and I haven't slept much this week, so I hope that old maxim of poor rehearsal, great show holds true.  I'll be good and warmed up by 5pm on Sunday, that's for sure!

Whee, the season kicks off for real now!  Read more... )

I so do not miss Mary up on that judges' panel.  I was never a Mary hater, but Mia is so much more insightful, genuinely funny and warm, and also her face moves when she talks.  It's a fun and more relaxed panel now, but just as tough.

I already disagree with the judges! )

Had to take an extensive break partway through watching, as Sisiutl managed to tunnel her way into the couch and couldn't/wouldn't get out.  I had to rip a seam out of the seating to extract her.  Then we had to tip the couch upside down, find where she got in and fix it.  Life with weasels, never a dull moment!

yay!

in which I have a strong opinion )

Feh.  At least the roasted cauliflower, potatoes and parsnips with garlic and sage that I made while watching the show turned out delicious...

About a month ago I bought a pair of calf-height, shiny (fake) patent zip up boots made by Earth and felt guilty about spending the money on them. Today in the slush and rain and snow, I am ever so glad that I have warm, comfy and above all waterproof boots to wear!

I reluctantly accept the female results this week on the basis of the solos, but I massively disagree with the male results.  I believe Nigel is with me on this one.

SYTYCD, not much here as I'm busy at work )

Loved the technical focus in Najmat's class last night--it was one of those classes with lots of ah ha! moments. Nothing new per se but executed with more thoughtfulness. Time to retrain muscle memory, again...

The laptop and the router feel like conversing tonight, so I am liveblogging the SYTYCD results show! )

I'm very glad I bought that iPod. I was never unhappy with the sound quality of my Creative Zen Sleek, but the iPod Classic's sound is noticeably better. Can you delete tracks from the iPod, without going through the computer to do it? I haven't figured out how to do that yet. I wasn't thrilled with the initial import procedure as I wanted more control than it gave me. But that's a small quibble. I'm very happy with the new device.
