Wow, I am tired. Went out dancing. I am pleased to have found some shoes that work well and look good, I didnt throw a shoe at all last night, I rarely remain shod the entire night when dancing.

I sort of let the hair down on a pair of Etienne Aigner oxfords with a 2.5 inch heel. They fit well, have a heel and are secure enough that my feet dont slip inside or come off the soles. I hate walking out of my shoes when I dance. And, suprisingly the outer sole was perfect for dancing, enough slip but not too much slide. Plus, they are available at Macys so I didnt have to go search for dance shoes that look good with jeans.

One of my friends has been working on his bachata so we danced 2 very nice dances, I was about to ask him when he said. “i’ve been practicing”. That was pretty awesome, we (I) looked hot. And my other friend and I did a perfect merengue set, 20+ minutes and not a misstep, no bobbles, no pauses, no fucked up turns.

While looking for info on square foot gardening this am I saw a frog and decided to look up coqui tattoos which somehow led me to a video I hadnt seen in ages.

THIS, is what Mr Spectacular should have been doing.

I’ve written a lot of stuff about men grinding and the “THATS GAY” comments it inspires. Well, sometimes it is a style that is not the female style of dancing, definitely male, but maybe a little NOT male. But usually, from what I have seen, young women think it is sexay. My ex boytoy does this stuff all the time with the comment, “Im secure in my sexuality”.

Ok, I’ll agree that this first one is a bit gayish, not that it at all matters, because of his hands and arms. But like many of the female commenters, I think the boy can move. I wish I could turn it around and swing it down in one fluid motion like he does at :18 and then at 0:20 he still doesnt have to stop when he switches up. He is very good at being fluid AND still popping at the right beat, his motion is neither too sinuous nor too angular.

Next guy, more in line with what one would see at a club playing reggaeton and filled with Boricuas and Dominicanos. I dont know what it is, but Im sayin the DomiRican blend is fiah. Either alone is cool but I think some of the wildest shit comin out of PR these days is there via the DR.

He looks so young it burns my eyes to watch this, but he is good. He rocks and pops his hips well and everytime I watch him get into it I start dancing in my chair.(If you slide the rump toward the edge of the chair you can move your foot enough to get some good hip motion, and its easy to do the torso stuff while sitting. Ask anyone who is unfortunate enough to be in the car when I drive) The female commenters all have the same reaction I do- they want to dance with him. He really does make you want to jump in and join the fun.

I get irritated watching it because it feels like his shorts are keeping his knees from moving.

Um, papito, put on some draws.His later videos suffer from his notoriety, most of it involves his dingle dangle doin the Boricua Bounce. MORE DANCING! We need more dancing less peen. OTOH, we girls do appreciate some eye candy, IMO “gringo” media producers FAIL when making content for women. We may not want to see naked genitalia, but there is definitely an appetite for male SEX objects. Not heart throbs, man meat. Junk. Stuff.

Talk about arroz com beans, what the hell is the name of this song? I keep wanting to call it Mujeres in the club.

This song is pretty fuckin hot and amazingly, the addition of an english language rap artist doesnt totally fuck up the flow. Folk have seemed to figure out how to integrate the rap into the existing flow and not just paste some shit on top. “YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHUHHHHHHH”

I saw this video today on tv and had a moment of my usual distaste for 50 Cent. I think I called him a thug ass mofo. Now, I dont think of W&Y as thug as mofos, why is that? Is it because 50 is a negro? Actually, being an American rapper is only part of it, its that he wears Fred Flintstone tshirts and athletic shoes. W&Y have tucked in shirts and boots on. Actually, I think one of them does have on tennis shoes.

I suppose I am showin my age, or class or both.(I was going to say Im just a fuddy duddy, but I do know ppl my age who do wear tennis shoes all the time) Because I hate athletic shoes worn as street wear. I can tolerate them with shorts, thats ok. But I cannot stand athletic shoes with jeans or khakis. And I cannot stand untucked tshirts. Not long untucked ones. I can tolerate it like if you have to pay your Walton tithe,or get your car fixed or something. On men. Women are only to wear athetic shoes at thegym, the park and the plant nursery. I have spoken.

Seriously, I have a guys number in my phone and I never called him because he was wearing a baseball cap, LONG shorts (WTF?? I guess they were manpris, didnt Jams go out of style 20 years ago?) and some sort of tennis shoe. Even my brother, even my “kids”, even my idiot former boytoy wear real shoes and a tucked in shirt when going out to a club or party.

I perceive men in casual clothing at night as overgrown teenagers, and I perceive men who are overgrown teenagers as thugs and hoodlums. AND I consider it disrespectful for a guy to step to me in his play clothes when I have taken the time to get dressed in “appropriate” attire. And yes, based simply on his shoes and being tucked or untucked, I make an instant judgement and decide we won’t click. I am trying, though it may not seem that way, to keep it from being a negative judgement and not ascribe negative attributes to men simply because they appear to not be a good fit. “Just because it aint what I would do dont make it wrong”

I encounter a lot of $150 jeans and $80 tshirts, I am quite aware that wearing this is not an indication that a person just threw any old thing on and that some “too casual” outfits probably cost more than my dressier ones. But hell, until this year my family still got dressed up in our holiday best (old school style) for Easter, Christmas and other family gatherings and I still blanche when I drive to my mothers at the holidays and see people gathering at other homes, all decked out in jeanery. *shrug* I need time, thats all.

(But 50 is still a thug ass mofo, ok?)

I have TOTALLY ruined the fun. Oh well, let me continue. I’ll post the video before the blahblahblah to save you the trouble of searching for it in all this chatter.

Ok, so to the ppl who made this video. Listen, the Apocalypse Dembow? Its over. Done.Dead.Old.Tired.
I’m sayin I dont want to see ANYMORE FUCKING IMAGERY THAT REFERENCES THE FALL OF CIVILIZATION. Yes, W&Y, that means you. Franco- I’m talkin to you too. NO MORE BOMBED OUT EARTH, NO MORE WAR ZONES. OVER. DONE. Tired. We need a new vision. Can I see some sun? I’ll be happy with some old school beach party or poolside videos.

Other than that, the song is pretty good and I don’t want to admit it because I was trying to blacklist W&Y because of the last cd they did which I didnt even bother to review.

Old school, new school- either way you arent learning anything nice.

Sir Speedy, Dj Blass and allll that….

Come to the marquesina, look in the cooler and get a few Heinekens and some Medalla, take off your chancletas and do things that will offend your elders. I probably am one of the elders, but considering the things I did when Patra was popular, I am not easy to offend.

This is killing.
