Slow time

So this weekend I went back to the land of no daylight savings time and few hills to see Bestest Bro in a dance performance. Now, I love Wesleyan dance of course, but this show was like if you took the best (and, admittedly, some of the worst too) of WesDance and put it all in one show. And then if the activists added a couple numbers too. Any show that includes a ballet piece to Bullet with Butterfly Wings, belly dancing to Mysterious Ways, and modern/ballet to New Kicks by Le Tigre is, by definition, *amazing*.

The best part, of course and by far, was The Richmond Dance Explosion's Seeking the Apex of Masculinity: Attempts at the Construction and Biography of Normative Man through Dance, the one my little bro (shown here) was in. It wasn't as pretentious as it sounds. Or, it was, but it was also *hilarious*. And pretentious in a gender-studies/sociology way, not in a dance way or anything. But you get that more by reading the MANalysis.

We also discovered some kick-ass hangout spots in Richmond. Like the old broken piano factory. And the coffee house/art gallery in some other old factory building. And the park by the river. And the movie theater, when it's showing The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. And anywhere there's lots of people wearing eyeliner.
