Moving Right Along
We're finally moved out of our old apartment, but we haven't been able to get a new place yet, so we're staying at an Airbnb. Contrary to the name, it's actually underground. There's an abstract nude on the wall, and two copies of Ozma of Oz on the shelf (the owner's daughter apparently likes fantasy). We don't have everything sorted out yet, but most of our stuff is in storage. Now I just worry that something I'll want is in there and I won't be able to access it. We had help from Beth's mom in packing up our stuff; she's a very hard worker and I don't think we could have done it without her. It's exhausting to just watch her work, though. The cats are staying in New Jersey for the time being. We hadn't taken them in the carriers for a long time, and I don't think they're over it yet. It really does make a person feel like a total creep, but what would have been a better option? Now who can explain that to the cats? I miss having them around; I'm glad I don't have to clean the litterbox for a while, but it's kind of lonely without them.


Last Thursday, Beth and I went to see another Kevin Geeks Out, this time about dance. Included were a lot of clips from dance-related movies, including Step Up 2: The Streets, Stayin' Alive, Grease 2, and Magic Mike XXL. One performer discussed the waltz, and how at the time it was the fun, exciting dance because the neighbors were doing the really complicated madrigal. Another segment defended bitchy dance divas in film, discussing how they're rather unfairly disparaged. Kevin Maher talked about dances related to pop culture that never caught on, including the Lurch (from a novelty single featuring the Addams Family character), the Batusi, and the Urkel. The thing is, I don't know that the last two ever really worked as dances people actually did, but I'd certainly HEARD of them. Maybe that's just because of when I grew up with the Urkel, but the Batusi was referenced in The Simpsons and Pulp Fiction. Maher mentioned the Bartman as one that was successful, presumably in terms of being a novelty dance song based on a popular TV show that made money, not in that the Bartman was ever a hit at dance clubs. Also included was the Bug from Hairspray, which was a real dance in the fifties, but I don't know that it was particularly successful even then. There were also a few clips from commercials and such, including a Hershey's ad from the eighties with break-dancing.

Yesterday was the Fourth of July, but we didn't do much other than ride a bus and eat at KFC. There wasn't any time for cookouts or fireworks, but I can't say I was in the mood for either one anyway. Celebrating the country seems kind of wrong when it's currently showing off all its worst qualities, but that isn't even why. Also, it was way too hot out. Still, it was nice to get the day off from work. I have a ticket to see Solo tomorrow, and on Saturday night I'm going with Beth to see Hereditary. I want to see Ant-Man and the Wasp at some point, but I guess there's no hurry on that one.

Current Mood: blah
