Whole lotta labia.
[how ya feelin'? |amusedamused]

Every year I wait for this. Every year I get all twitchy hoping that today will be the day. And today? It's the day. Pennsic University Class list is up. And you know what that means!




  • The Hulc, The Ship Forgotten By Time - You wouldn't like it when it's angry.

  • Relics and reliquaries; or, fun with body parts - A sure sign of an instructor with a sense of humor. Yay!

  • Male Raqs ("Bellydance") 101 - How many times do we have to say this? NO! NO NO NO!

  • Throw Away Your Wristwatch - Aim for the male bellydancing class.

  • Peppercorns and Protection Rackets - Seriously? I'd take this one.

  • Songs that Ought Not to be Sung - I have a list. Did you guys need a list? Cuz I have one. Just mentioning.

  • Sonnets for Stickjocks, or The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Poets - AHAHAHAH!! Oh.. crap.. that's Steve's class.




Possibly more later. But for now, I'm amused.

Steve's teaching four classes in one day. He's going to be one tired puppy, but he's so excited!

YAY PENNSIC!

Actually, I know the guy teaching the Raqs class - it's something he's been studying for years, to get it period-appopriate and what not. And he's good at it. Of course, the class means that the knowledge will fall into what may be the WRONG hands, but such is Pennsic.

::grin:: Though otherwise, your list is Very Funny.

Is that the guy who posts rather often to LJ ethnic_fashion? "Wrong hands" ehrm, wrong bellies. Big Scadian boy bellies. Under Scadian boy boobs. *t w i tch*. On the other hand, I am very much hoping the folke of the reign will bring back the woad party this year. Which had that terrific girl fire dancer, and topless (girl) belly dancing. High, high art forms. And they were skilled as well as luscious.

Not on that community, but I don't think so - it's asim, and he doesn't really post much anymore.

See, and that's my issue. Not the fact of the class, more the clenchingly bad aftereffects. I have the same opinions of the beginning dumbek class as well. Which makes me a flaming hypocrite, I'm aware, but I can't help but think that bad female bellydancers get lost in the crowd (except for that one woman.. in the chainmail.. I don't think she gets lost anywhere) until they find their feet.

I've seen some incredibly talented male dancers out there. The kind where you just stand there with your drink going warm and flat and think "yes... but what about ... oh my... yes..." But only a couple. I've also taken tribal workshops with your average ducal paunch and thought "Oh for the love of little baby Jesus tell me he never wears an open vest an a hip belt.." I guess it comes down to keeping an open mind and letting talent progress at it's own pace and knowing that in 5 years or so there will be a bunch of very talented male dancers to watch and appreciate. Until then, you're right, it's Pennsic, and if the men can watch me jitter out there like some kind of caucasian chicken with a seizure disorder, then I can let them into the circle too.

(But I'm bringing deoderant. I am. Because some of them need it. Bad. And that's not about talent, it's about biological warfare. ;) )

Seriously, Lori. Make me tell you about Nearly Naked Boy one of these days. He's so... seriously... it's like the African Anteater Ritual scene from "Can't Buy Me Love."

(I just outed myself as a dork, didn't I?)

Is that the skinny guy in the bunny fur thong at the bogside bottom of ya'll's hill?

PS, You are very smooth - no seizure disorder in evidence when you dance. "Caucasian chicken"? So not either.

No no.. it's the adorable little guy from the Camp Formerly Known as Black Rose. He's a lovely boy, he is, it's just that sometimes he gets a little carried away with the music.

If you just outed yourself as a dork (most adorable dork evah! *mwah*), then I just outed myself as clueless! :)

Nearly Naked Boy? Gets carried away? Ehehehe! Oh do tell!
