Notes on Bayadere Ballet (the word/s flow/z below like the lyriç of ballet.

.

Youtube allows us to see tons of art that we may not usually get exposed to.

Like, ballet for me. Alvin Ailey is one among many other state, city, and national ballets that are familiar to most us, in theory. When was the last time you watched a ballet start to finish? Never for me; until, I saw the above performance. Thanks to youtube.

The Balanchine tradition cannot help but be my personal fave.

It reminds me more of yoga poses, the breathwork, physicality and poise are enough to usually bring a tear or two, though it is a very uncynical thing to admit. It is also super brutal looking. The practice and repetition of the same basic movements over time enables this art to enliven through proper breathing to oxidize muscles while balancing precariously.

The European and western ballet companies cannot hold a candle to the art expressed by the Boshoi Ballet. Alchemy in action.

I wrote letters from the words in the opening/closing credits, the subtitlez,and the actual youtube info on my screen. It contained characters in another language.

A meditation for sure.

Cheers.

Watch “Blinker the Star – Top Of The Pops (Official Audio)” on YouTube

Howl, yes. Like reluctant headliners, look who is back on the scene?

Still clear and up to their resources. No doubt.

I hope they never change their attitude.

Their dog says that he will try anything, don’t you know.

Help ’em out.

They are kind enough to share on YouTube.

You can get more music here. Like their entire catalogue for $30.03. That has to be someone’s lucky number.

This goes out to the Wheeze L. Legg…. “kelis i hate you so much right now” on YouTube

‘Member how we loved this song as young un’s, sis o’ mine?

In your bedroom after moved into the back room. Door closed. Wilding out like idiots.

Being joyful to hear such a song,

“Curtis Mayfield. “Hard Times” (There’s No Place Like America These Days. 1975)

Ayup.

Uh huh.

Feeling this

Bet you don’t know as much Mayfield as you should.

I know i don’t know enough.

Future rabbit hole.

It’ll help synch ya groove to ya time.
