1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I was a pretty good dancer but that was many moons ago. It's terrific excercise, I think it kept me thin.

    I think Usher is the greatest dancer of the last decade.
    How can you have Breakin' and not Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo?
    I was waiting for someone to mention it.

    My 5 year old daughter has forbidden me to dance or sing in her presence - apparently, I do too much violence to her aesthetic sensibilities.

    It had to be said, c'mon.

    And props to gamelan for dancing lindy. I wish I would have stuck with my west coast swing classes.

    Ditto. I went to dancing school for two and a half years here in Germany and am really fond of the Waltz (the faster the better when you have a good partner); cha-cha\\ rumba; foxtrot and so on. I dance whenever I find the opportunity and have a partner (about once a week on average- also there are enought balls to attend and the infamous dance tea).

    For some reason, Swedish TV4 is showing crap movies from the 80's every afternoon right now, and the other day, that one was on. I actually saw a bit, and it was very crappy indeed. I really enjoyed the "dumb-guy-learns-how-to-dance-in-5-minutes" montage, though.

    "We need a montage!"

    This is kind of old, but I laugh everytime I see it:


    Actually a decent band.

    I can do basic moves and I have a good time with it so I do it often. Nothing fancy but the girls I hang out with love dancing so I like to do it when we go out.

    The longer I dance, the closer to miming it gets. I do:

    eating a bowl of oatmeal
    the sprinkler
    the manual gear shift
    the horse ride
    the motorcycle
    the lost in a fog---aka Velma groping for her eyeglasses
    the "land ho" complete with telescope and pointing finger
    the windmill
    the angry gorilla punching the floor
    the lonely native in a canoe
    the deflating Snoopy balloon at the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade
    and the rusty robot AKA the Tin Man

    I prefer the closely related, but infinitely more pretentious version (you know, for hipsters!): the "Johnny Depp in Dead Man floating away in a canoe" Also, @ Quirk: LMAO. I love that scene so much.
