That’s when people could dance without having sex on the stage. LikeLiked by 1 person Peggy: Quite right. Not one guy caressing his crotch or one gal whose boob “accidentally” flew out. LikeLike Great video. It took a lot of work to sync those movements to the music. Lagniappe is a Cajun thing, you know. LikeLike Carole: A Cajun thing?! You do recall that you’re talking to a guy who lived almost two decades in New Orleans. Do you know what lagniappe means? LikeLike Yes, I know what I believe it means. A little gift a store owner gives a customer. Usually LA or East TX. Cajun French. LikeLike Carole: It can have a wider meaning: “something given or obtained gratuitously or by way of good measure.” That’s how I use it here. A gift. LikeLike I first heard lagniappe used as the name of a charter sailing provisioning company. LikeLike Carole: We have a word in Spanish that means, among its other definitions, the same thing. Pilón. LikeLike Yes, I was going to write that but the word wouldn’t come off the tip of my tongue. LikeLike Carole: I suppose pilón would have been more appropriate here, but there are two reasons I did not use it. One, I did not think of it. Two, I like the sound and look of lagniappe. LikeLike That was terrific! I was smiling at all the fabulous dance moves. Many, many thanks for sharing this. Saludos, Don Cuevas LikeLike My pleasure, Señor Cuevas. I too thought it was great. LikeLike Thanks for putting a smile on my face tonight. 😉 LikeLiked by 1 person Terri: Putting smiles on faces is one of the mission statements in the Moon’s charter. I guess I should print the entire charter one day. LikeLike Felipe, Glad I took the time to watch the video. Excellent. Some very talented people in those old movies. Troy LikeLike Troy: At about the 0:34-second mark, Fred Astaire is dancing with a woman I think is Eleanor Powell. He said she was the best dancer in Hollywood at the time, including him. I had a video of her dancing on here back in April. She’s absolutely wonderful. https://unseenmoon.wordpress.com/2017/04/10/the-doggie-dance/ LikeLike Gives new meaning to the term “sync” … and a good one it is. LikeLike Ricardo: The mind reels at the work that went into making that video. LikeLike How nice it is to see people actually dancing instead of appearing to be in a constant epileptic seizure while either flaying their arms or spinning on their butt on the floor. I am too old to appreciate the art of whatever they do now, with the arm jerks and spinning around like a top. I went to a show back a while in Northern California where they actually devoted 15 minutes or so to this person who did this weird gyrations on the stage. Weird, or now the butt moving around like a target for some mating animal. Oh, send me back to the old days. Great clips of great performers who actually had talent. LikeLike Tancho: That butt spinning is called break dancing. You’re just behind the times, old boy. I don’t think badly of it though I’m not a fan. It’s just a different style. It does require talent and practice. LikeLike Break dancing can’t be done with two people arm to arm because they would stop spinning, just an observation. LikeLike And an accurate observation it is, Tancho. LikeLike Comments are closed.
