It’s been a while…

I meant to write about Lindyfest a few weeks ago and now I don’t remember what I wanted to say about it. I do remember having an amazing time, and having a few dance-revelations and awakenings. Sorry I’m not able to get more specific, because it’s really just boiling down to a new “feeling” I’m […]

Black Swan

Yes, I know I’m a bit late to this party, but I finally saw this movie, and I must state just how much I loved it. After being informed that it was from the same director that brought us Pi, and Requiem for a Dream, it made perfect sense. He did brilliant work with this […]

Lone Star Championships 2011

Man, what a way to get the new year rollin’!  This was my second Lone Star Championships ever, and it was sooo good! It was going to be tough to beat last year’s awesomeness but Scott and Tena somehow pulled it off. Ok… where do I begin… Thank you’s: — My houseguests (Gina, Breanna, Mary, […]

Lindy Focus IX!

Ok…. this is a temporary post….. most likely…. that is, if I don’t get lazy. It’s the last night of Lindy Focus — aka, New Year’s Eve/Morning … 7:35am precisely. I’m exhausted but still wired from all the dancing tonight and how much fun I’ve been having. And I just couldn’t keep it to myself. […]

Stompology 5

Every year, I write my words or praise over Stompology… and this year is no different. Why?  A bunch of reasons: 1. Rochester. I spent 6 years of my life there and made some really great friends. All of whom I get to see again when I go back. It feels like going home. 2. […]

My First Lindyfest

Most people were pretty surprised when I told them that this was my first ever Lindyfest. The event has been around for many years, is widely loved,  and I tend to travel a decent amount. How did I never attend before?!  It was either too far away, and therefore, too expensive to get to, or […]

Thursday Nights are the Best!

I love being in Austin. And last night was awesome. The Fed had a great DJ lineup for the night: Heather, Brooks, and Mike. So much fun dancing. But the night wasn’t over then. Some of my favorite musicians were playing at East Side Showroom till 2am. So we went, and danced like mad. Here’s […]

Just your average Thursday night…

Except it wasn’t! For those who don’t know, Thursday night is Austin’s usual weekly dance night over at the Fed. It’s usually a pretty good time. But tonight was a particularly amazing night, at least for me. Allow me to explain… Sometimes a lot of dances means I’m having a really good night. But, me […]

Lone Star Championships

My body still aches from this weekend. Man, Tena and Scott threw one hell of an event. Where should I begin with my praise? The music? So awesome! The bands were two different configurations of local Austin musicians, both which included Ryan Gould, John Doyle and Oliver Steck. I feel so lucky to be able […]
