Loving this SO HARD!!! XD
Srsly.. how badass is this piece??? And when they start doing the drops and windmill kicks??? *dies* I -absolutely- lost it, y’all. *chuckles* I was quiet up until then, and suddenly- WHAM- total fan-girl. No joke. Of course I was loving it throughout, but at that point, I was -literally- hooting & hollering at my computer, and when it finally ended, I unabashedly cheered.- Like.. IRL. *lol* LOVE THIS!!! ♥♥♥
To those who think you need to be one gender or another to bellydance, I say check THIS out!!! ^_^ We’ve got rather butchy gents, rather femmy gents, gents who seem somewhat gender fluid, and they are ALL freaking YUMTASTICLY FIERCE. How can you go wrong??!! ^_^
Out of the whole beautiful bunch (of whom I adore every one, btw), I think my particular faves are the guy in all the scarves (on wrists and draping from his noggin) w/the face fuzz, the 2 short-haired gents often dancing side by side in the pointy-hemmed, sleeveless crop tops (especially the smaller one- his attitude, energy & moves were sublime!), and of course, that fluffier dancer in the mix, who TOTALLY rocked it out center stage at one point! Yee-ESS!!! (And can I just say right now how much I adore that they included a fuller-figured dancer in this? Thank you guys for that, too! ♥♥♥) ..Just.. LURVE!! XD *cheers insanely*
-And if you DO like what you see, you should check out this li’l photoshoot I featured of the amazing, the incomparable (and the imcomparably sweet) Bagoas here, long ago too. :)
Oh! Plus if YOU”RE a gent (or know of one) who’s interested in bellydance (or if you just dig ‘em and wanna find a list), I have an ever-growing compendium of male bellydancers (alongside resources for our dancing male friends) available here. ^_^ (So if you know of one I’ve missed, please, drop me a line! I wanna catch ‘em all! ;D)
Hope y’all dig, and no matter WHO you are, happy dancing! ^_^
I’m workin’ on the next bellydance-inspired ep. of Eclectica, and suddenly it dawned on me to get YOUR input, my booful bellydancing community, for whom this show is made, before I do. :) So; has anyone got any suggestions or requests to put in for the next show, before I start recording tomorrow..? :D
I’ve already got a little Oum Kalthoum on the way, as well as some Corvus Corax.. and others. ^_^ Plus I have a good li’l pool of podsafe & permitted musical bits available, and can always make requests of the bands YOU request. ^_^ But in case people have specific bands or songs they want, or should there be a band or two out there who wanna submit their work for the show, I thought I’d inquire. ^_^
So saying: Might anyone want to hear anything specific..? *tightens screws on headphones & listens closely*
Inspired by Mother’s Day. :) I hope you guys like! ^_^
I so dig her musicality, presence, and flair for dramagic accents & poses here. ^_^
(Ooh! And I just made up a new word! A would-have-been typo became somethin’ I’m leavin’ here on purpose- ‘cause it SO fits! Magical + dramatic = DRAMAGIC! ^_^ Squee! #bellydancewordsmith ;D)
Joline Andrade peforms Fusion Belly Dance at The Massive Spectacular!
Next for our Geek Friday video games theme, we’ve got this BADASS concoction by 2 of the members of Raks Geek, a troupe that SPECIALIZES in geeky bellydance! ^_^
Using the game Assassin’s Creed as inspiration, this is a -chill inducing- Fusion sword piece that’s beautifully staged, artfully choreographed and delightfully dark; with sharp movements & dramatic, loverly accents. ^_^ I positively adore this piece, and wouldn’t mind learning it m’self! ^_^
In fact, this reminds me a lot of Night, the president of our former bellydancing club at RU. She’s a BIG fan of computers, anime, and other awesomely geeky stuff, loved our nifty swords (that we got at MissBellydance.com- in BLACK XD), and often wears costuming like this- as well as a hoodie in her “daily duds.” ^_^ (Plus, her dancing style is somewhat similar in its form & intent, so I can -totally- see her pulling something like this off. ^_^) I bet she’d PLATZ over the costuming, choreo & intensity here, too. ^_^
So for all my darkling divas, video gaming vixens, and especially you, Ms. Night, this is for you. ^_^ I hope I get to do something like THIS w/you someday, ‘cause it is WICKED! ♥♥
Now, get ready for one strong & super badass sword piece, and hold on to your scimitars (carefully ;)), ‘cause it’s gonna be one deadly ride-with an awesome soundtrack!. ;D
Today our theme for Geek Friday is… *drumroll pleeeeaaaase!* VIDEO GAMES! :D To start off the vids for today, we’ve got this adorable dance, inspired by the game Portal. XD
I’ve never played it m’self, but I’ve seen it played, and I -adore- all the merch, fan vids, and music people have created that’re inspired by it, as well as the idea/object of the game. If y’all haven’t heard it before, I -highly- recommend checking out Jonathan Coulton’s song “Still Alive,” which was written by Mr. Coulton, and done by GLADOS- and then I believe got used in the credits of the game. ^_^ It is adorable and twisted just like the video game, and if you don’t like the version I’ve linked to, you can also find vids w/just one of them singing, should you prefer. :) (But the one above plays the version w/Jonathan & GLADOS singing together. :))
But before you go and check out the game (comically dark and creative as all get-out), stay for a few and peep this bellydance, which uses sword, veil, and lots of spirit. ^_^ Hooray for creative, awesome, smart n’ spunky bellydancing geekygirls! ^_^
STUNNING performance here. *applauds* Love the dancing, love the intensity and mood, love the outfit, the lighting, and of course, love the tune! (It’s on of my old-time favorites. ^_^) GO Rajuli! ♥♥ YIP YIP!!
Pretty Mardi Love! I think this is my favorite picture of her evar. ^_^ She looks so divinely blissful, energetic, and just.. glowingly happy. ^_^ The golden light looks beautiful on her, w/her golden hair and shapely, womanly curves, and on that lovely, ornate outfit. She’s just.. -shining.- *beams* Go Mardi!
The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
Next, to REALLY get your geek in gear, we’ve got a mix of dance styles featuring some truly fun bellydance. ^_^ Don’t expect traditional belly-fare though; these girls rock it in hip-packs, side ponytails and taped-together glasses! :D You GO, ladies!! ♥
