Dubstep Dancing….

8 Jul

What is Dubstep and am I to late to learn?

Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music. Its overall sound has been described as "tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals".

Translation it’s a string of noises and sounds that makes no sense at all.

Here is sampling of Dubstep Music.

 

I don’t know about you but I myself couldn’t make it thru 2 minutes of it. Sure I’ll be the first one to stand up and raise the volume on the radio, I’ll also be the first one to dance at a club or party. But this? Is this really music or just a bunch of odd sounds put together?

Granted some, dubstep music or is it songs? Are remixes of popular songs.  I was able to enjoy (ummm tolerate)  a bit more and was able to make it thru the whole video.

 

Now that I’ve decided what kind of dubstep music I’d rather listen to, comes the most important question of all.

Can I dance to it?

Am I to old to learn dupstep?

How do you dance to it?

Well it turns out, nobody seems to be very certain how exactly you dubstep dance.  After an intense  search on youtube. I found that sometimes it’s the robot, sometimes it’s a pop-and lock,  a move in slow motion  dance  and then there’s the just swing and flail your arms around dance.

 

 

After watching these videos I’ve decided that my old age joints wouldn’t be able to handle it nor could my brain handle the so called dubstep music. Although the flailing arms one seems easy enough if I don’t mind looking like a fool.  So will any of you be dubstepping soon? Who’s with me? Should we form a crew? Can we get matching outfits?

To apply please send me a video of your best dubstep moves.  I need a good laugh every once and a while.

P.S the use of a walker as a prop is a big plus Winking smile

Spring Concert?

6 Jun

If you follow me on Twitter then you might know that last Thursday I went to one of my daughter’s school Spring Concert. My teen is in Advance Band and plays the Saxophone on footballs off season. During football season she plays the bass drums in Marching Band.

I’ll be the first to admit these kids are not in way the future players of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra nor will we find the next Justin Beiber  here at her school.

While the kids did try their best and  we as parents/fellow students and audience should have given them the proper courtesy and attention they deserved. It was astonishing how rude people were acting. Would it have killed anyone to shut the hell up! To sit quietly and listen to the music, granted at times it sounded more like cats in heat were singing on stage and maybe  the noise made while  washing pots and pans produce better rhythm. But still the kids deserved a better audience!

Really,  I’ve never wanted to punch people more then that night. Yeah, I’m sure whatever was in the crack between the ceiling and the wall to your left was much more interesting than your son or daughter playing on stage, and certainly  the loud comments hollered across the auditorium were much more important then the kids performance.

I know personally  I was really  impressed by the loud bubble gum smacking and popping abilities someone in the audience was sharing with us all.

While I am a fan of being able to speak your mind and speak freely, I’m not a fan of doing so rudely or acting like a jack ass at school events or any sort of event that is to be enjoyed.

I did get to record my daughter’s band playing and have posted it on YouTube to share with family and friends. Don’t worry I wont hold it against you if you don’t watch it, but come Christmas time don’t expect a gift from me  in the mail Smile
