Re: What's wrong with highschool dances?

I skipped out on senior prom to see The Offspring and Mighty Mighty Bosstones in concert. It was pretty awesome. Also, I mourn the fact that many people of our generation have a pretty major phobia against dancing. I used to be super shy about it myself, but then I started taking lessons in swing/Li...

iTunes: mono vs. stereo

One of my speakers has decided to quit playing, although it's still adjusting the volume just find. This means that I only have one working speaker and my subwoofer. Since nearly all music is done in stereo, this leads to some really odd sounding songs (e.g. "When I'm 64", where the instru...

Considering how many years I've spent working on movement technique and control for Lindy Hop, it's a bit sad how often I walk into things or hit my head on things. I think it's actually due to lack of paying attention, though, rather than a lack of grace.
