I have always thought that it is genius to fall down on the floor while dancing. Like an accident, stumble, fall, but quickly stand up, just to fall down again. In the middle of the dance floor, just to laugh about it. I did it a couple of times last Saturday, just that no one was dancing anymore.
The videos below are on a different level. Falling down never looked better.
Vogue Femme at the Philly Awards Ball two weeks ago (via):
Of course, I’m partial to the harlequin costumes.
The following clip of Tandi Iman Dupree has been all over the interwebs, but I thought it is a good fit. Still one of the best entrances and the exit is to the floor. From the Miss Black America pageant 2001:
This was the first Mel Gibson movie I saw. When Kevin invited me to join him for the press screening I happily agreed, I thought I’m going to be in for a treat in fantasy language. So not. No fantasy blabbering here, however the Yukatek Maya kind of did the trick for me.
The film has a lot to offer: a man is forced by his friends to eat tapir balls (very disgusting, I know. It happens within the first 10 minutes of the film, right then I knew, this is going to be good), a woman has a water birth (I love the German word Unterwassergeburt) and in the zenith of the film, we get a total eclipse of the sun.
What more can you ask for?
Most violent scene human to human:
Men are sacrificed in the name of the Maya god. Their hearts are ripped out.
I didn’t want to see all the veins.
Most violent scene human to animal:
A tapir is killed and the innards are shared between the hunters. As I mentioned above, one guy is tricked into eating the balls. Turns out later, they aren’t an aphrodisiac.
Most violent scene animal to human:
A panther, with his mouth open wide, jumps into the face of a man and enjoys his dinner. I closed my eyes.
I haven’t seen so much blood and violence in a movie for a very long time, maybe ever.
So, how does this sound? When are you going to see the Apocalypto?
