So.. unfurtnately I has been a busy, busy bunny, so I do not have a Geek Friday batch of goodies for you today (as yet). However, may I offer to make amends, via this INSANELY KICKASS troupe performance, here..?
Pretty, pretty please..?
Hole. E. GODS this performance, this troupe, those costumes.. the staging.. the dancers as a group and as individuals.. -everything- about this was simply UNREAL!! LOVE love loVE this. Imho, these-guys-kick-BUTT!!! Lllllilililililili-yiiiiIP!!
Drag queens + bellydance..? Why HELLS YES!! I am a very, very happy li’l fishie right now. ^_^
Because this image has recently gotten so much buzz (thanks to all my readers here, the wonderful people in the Big, Beautiful Bellydancers forum on FB, and The Dancers Eye Photography page- on FB as well), I thought I’d make physical copies of it (per a few requests). :) So to those of you who’d like a nice fancy-schmancy print, (80lb acid-free archival cardstock giclée, hunneh! ;D), you can now find 2 different sizes (8x10” & 5x7”) on Etsy. :)
There are only 8 copies for this first run (as I gauge how major the interested will be), but if it looks like folks want more, I’ll happily get others made. :)
Beyond all that sales-y stuff though: Thank you guys -so much- for the support and positive feedback that this one little doodle has gotten. As both a fluffy bellydancer and as a VI artist, the reception this has garnered just blows me away, n’ to see how it’s spread and how people interpret the piece.. y’all bring tears to my eyes n’ a lump to my throat.
Made w/my own art, then altered for text using MS Paint, Word 2010, Windows Live Photo Editor, and Zamzar file converter, to take it from Word .doc to .pdf to .jpg. :) (Oh, how I’d kill for a decent image editing program again! ;D *lol*) Skin tones and other elements which could denote differences omitted- on purpose. ;)
And lastly, (because robots, jazz/ragtime and Irish Step Dancing mixed with bellydance will NEVER be out of fashion here on Geek Fridays :D), I bring you the Dakini Dance Company. ^_^ I love their travels here, how they mix robotic “deactivation” drops, twitches and moves w/bellydance, and all that personality they show- even w/their faces dead straight! ^_^ (Plus that last Daft Punk song was especially fierce, don’t you think? :D) And you gotta love those linked moves! *beams*
Way to rock the science, ladies! Lililililili-yiiiIP! ^_^
Now, that’s the last of this week’s GF fix! I shall likely see you tomorrow, ..when I very probably SHOULD be doing something else. ;) Love y’all, and happy weekend!

There is so much fantabulousness in this (and in so many layers) I can hardly process. Seriously.. there are moments in this video where I got honest-to-God/dess chills. (Especially the face-to-face, “duel/duet” sections. -And the part where the zills start up..?? *shivers* GUH!! XD) SO- MUCH- FIERCE, gentlemen!! SO MUCH FIERCE!!! *applauds and tries to invisi-zill along delightedly* Plus I love the way they let each member shine!! My favorite is the tall man in the yellow, because of his flair, his intensity, and his awesome energy. ^_^ (As well as his showmanship, and how cheeky he gets! :D) But every single ONE of them is awesome. Love the ‘stumes, love the moves, love the choreo, love the smiles, love the vibe, love the music- and love their spirit!! —-♥—-
Gentlemen, I know you can do it y’own damned selves, but for what it’s worth, I would happily tote your bellydance bags around- ANYTIME. ^_^ (And for those who don’t get the reference; that’s something lots of kind, generous gents often end up doing for us ladydancers- ‘cause we bellydancers tend to carry a TON to our shows. ;) Skirts and props and makeup and and and and—- it all gets HEVEH!! So men can frequently be seen prior to engagements helping tote giant bags and suitcases of belly-goodness. :))
Acgh.. Y’ALL KICK SUCH BUTT!!!
This awesome image has inspired an idea in me: Let’s whip out (n’ share- preferably here ;)) our favorite pics of us w/our sharp & pointy babies!
-And by that I mean, our SWORDS! XD
What girl doesn’t love a glistening, keenly sharp dancing companion, ready to cut down her foes or entrance her every onlooker with but a simple turn of the head, hip, shoulder, or wrist..? (And yes, for those who haven’t discovered the joys of sword dancing yet; a sword can be balanced on ALL those things- as well as much, much more! :D) I say we should share our best sword-wielding pics! -And if you don’t have any atm? Take some brand new ones! ^_^
Let us see those sharp n’ shinies! XD
Images like this make me happy like you would not believe. ^_^
And thanks to sihayadesigns, I now know who this is! *does a happy dance* These are two members of WildCard BellyDance! (I beliiiieve maybe Kristen and Robin, but don’t quote me on that. ;)) Their troupe does gorgeous work. Go on over n’ check ‘em out! ^_^

My little student bellydance club will be having a Spring Hafla April 25th, from 5-8pm. I know it’s an odd day being on a Wednesday, but it’s the only day we could reserve a space, so if you’ve a mind to come to a little town in SW VA somewhere near the end of April, we’d love to have you! ^_^
You can find our little club’s page on FB at https://www.facebook.com/ruhipnotixx,
and the page for our wee event can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/125037414294471
Two wonderful dancers from DC’s premier gothic bellydance troupe Mortifera will be joining us on our little brick stage, as will a few amazing ladies from around the local area. ^_^ Plus, there’s still time to register if you’d like to perform, too! If you’re interested, just drop us a line on either of the Hipnotixx pages above, and either the president of the club or I will get back to you in a flash. ^_^
It’s going to be a relatively informal event, but man, it’s our first big independent to-do, so we’re super excited. Hope to see you there! ^_^
* * *
Oh! And if you can’t come but would still like to help out, we have a little page on GoFundMe here. We’re trying to order our club t-shirts before the year is out, so we’d appreciate any support you can offer there, too!
Thanks so Much!
These videos are RUDDY AMAZING. I only wish we could see more!!
Does anyone know where to find this documentary on DVD? I think someone’s gonna have to check Amazon or NetFlix! XD
