dancing again

I am learning a new dance, a challenging one, for me at least. This is something that I haven’t done in quite a while now. It’s tough. But it’s fun. And exciting. And painful. And I am loving every second of it.

My knees are sore from all the kneeling that’s required in the dance. My back is aching from all the arching and contracting that I have to do. My neck hurting from whipping my head left and right, up and down. But despite all these aches and pains that I feel, I am still excited, very much looking forward to the next dance session on Tuesday.

Four nights! I still have to wait four nights to learn the choreography to the next part of the song.  (more…)

Aaaaahhhh! These promos from Fox featuring the all-stars have got me all excited about the new season of so you think you can dance! As a frustrated dancer, I have been a fan of the show from the very first season where Melody, a Filipina, came second to Nick Lazarini! Can’t wait to see the show and what new things they’ve decided to put in. I hope they retain much of the format and rules from the previous season though! Aaaaahhh!

The promo features (from 7 to 1) Kathryn, Robert, Witney, Twitch, Lauren, Mark and Neil.

Currently addicted to this game – 2fuse. It’s available for iOS and android for free.

It’s a game that tests the speed of your eyes and your fingers. And based on my results on playing this game, neither my eyes or my fingers are fast enough. Haha.

That’s my sister’s score there on the top left of the photo – 490,140. She can do up to 500k ++.  Her husband’s high score goes up to 600k++.  A few friends have scores of at least a million.  I, on the other hand, can only manage up to 300,000 even with full upgrades. Hehe

I am still very much enjoying the game though despite my modest scores.  I think it helps rewire my brain somehow. Haha. Hopefully, it can restore lost neural connections and make me smarter.

How about you?  What’s your high score?

The Voice Season 4

When the show “The Voice” first aired. I immediately took to its format. It was refreshing, different from the rest of the singing competitions.  But I didn’t like the judges they chose.  Well, I like Adam Levine. I didn’t know Blake Shelton then but eventually, his funny antics and comments made me like him, too. It was Ceelo that I thought was off as a judge. But that’s just me. And while Christina Aguilera can easily out-sing anyone, in the battle of the pop stars, I still prefer Britney over her.

So in the fourth installment of The Voice, Usher and Shakira were very welcome changes to the judge line up.  The dynamics, chemistry among the four was way better. It was fun to watch the banter, the exchange of playful jibes.

But I only do enjoy The Voice during the blind auditions.  I don’t really quite understand why they have to pit their chosen singers against each other. Let’s see if this season will be able to capture my attention till the very end of the season…
