14. Gin Blossoms, “Found Out About You

When you’re trying to launch a new act, especially one with a debut album as strong as New Miserable Experience, definitely make a video where all of their faces are hidden in shadow. It’s just Marketing 101.

So here’s my memory of this song: In 1994, the conservative Catholic college that I inexplicably voluntarily attended assembled a support group for its gay and lesbian students. (Not a social group, mind you. Not even an activism group — a support group, like we all had the same disease …) I enthusiastically signed up, picturing it as the field of Bee People at the end of Blind Melon’s “No Rain” video; at last, the iron gate would swing open, and we’d all hug and laugh and dance. “There you are” we’d say.

In reality, of course, it ended up being me and two very serious women from the field hockey team. Until a month or so later, when a shatteringly handsome sophomore joined the group. We had coffee after the meeting, and I told him I was in love with him approximately three hours later. You see, to be a gay kid of the ’80s who bumbles out of the closet in the mid-’90s is to grow up with no fucking idea how to behave. Your basic human need to give and receive love bumps around inside you for years before you’re ever able to express it; you’re like a single can of beer that’s been in the trunk of a car, and when someone finally comes and pops your top off, your insides spill out everywhere. After a few weeks, he realized that he was in a relationship with an unstable person, and — as “Found Out About You” played in my Jetta — wisely broke it off. I reacted by smoking all of the cigarettes and listening to Lisa Loeb’s “Stay” 8,000 times in a row.

He drops a line on Facebook every couple of years, and when he does, I get the pang of remorse you feel when you see a picture of yourself with your worst haircut. (via)

I can’t wait to read a book by Dave Holmes.

"

I love celebrity encounters. The best was in a hotel in London.

I was in the lobby and saw Lucy Liu. She’s, like, this tall. She looked up at me and saw a tag sticking out the back of my sweater. She reached up, tucked it in, and said, ‘Now you’re perfect.’

I would die on a battlefield for Lucy Liu.

I guess Carlos’ dream journal got a bit poetic and surreal there for a while.

#5: “The Garden” (Courtney/Mark jazz), Top 6

The Sonya fight jazz to end all Sonya fight jazzes. Or, rather, the one to begin them, as this was the first time she did jazz on the show! The other two were contemporary. Like Tore My Heart, this manages to stand out from all the others in a perfect combination of dancers, music, and performance.

Courtney and Mark were perfect for this. They were the two dancers that season that made themselves fit into every routine regardless of what it was, so the amount of commitment in this is through the roof. I don’t think they even notice that there’s a crowd. A lot of those positions that they hit could have been awkward or silly, but in the hands of these guys, everything worked perfectly. 

Like Mark walking forward with his hands on his waist at the beginning. Or Courtney on the floor and headbanging to the beat. Or when she bends over in front of him while he has this ridiculous smile on his face. Or that part where Courtney walks over his body. I’ve always though that part would look ridiculous on anyone else, but not on Courtney. 

Can you imagine if there were ever a Sonya episode like there was a Mia episode? Those poor dancers that would try and fail to recreate The Garden. This routine is perfect and Courtney and Mark are perfect and Sonya is perfect.

Omg, you merely bought new coat and scarf, no need to be this sassy.
