Body Rolls High Kicks Music Video, Leslie Hall is cool


When I place my legs in a cage of spandex I dance like hell to release the madness! – Leslie Hall

This gal is Leslie Hall. She seems like a cool gal!

Here r the lyrics so u can sing along:

I was walking through the forest of Moccasin breath
when I saw a troll boy wearing tight pants
I want to own them, but can you even dance in those pants?
“Watch me, woman!”

They made him move like a vessel of shimmy,
All sweet and tender like a tiny baby kitty.
I need to get some! Put my body in them, then I will rule the world!!

Is that an angel baby? No! That’s his dance moves! Yes!
Watch my lady honey grooves! Feed me lots of Jamba Juice!
Call me lady tiger, but I never eat my young, no!
My legs in those pants, a dream! When I would move, I’d scream:

Watch out for my body rolls!
Watch out for my body rolls!
High kicks!
High kicks!
This is how we do it!

Watch out for my body rolls!
Watch out for my body rolls!
High kicks!
High kicks!
This is how we do it!

I begged that boy to make me some
Gotta dance like that where I come from
Grab a partner form a line
Cut and stitch and make ‘em shine
Work that elastic it’s looking fantastic
P-p-please stitch ‘em pretty ‘cause my body can’t handle that
It’s just the power of the lycra
Tickles my tigra
Let me get inside of ‘em and stretch, stretch, stretch!

And tell yourself you’re a vessel of shimmy
And activate your dance floor kitty

When I place my legs in a cage of spandex
I dance like hell to release the madness
Watch my feet pound holes in plywood
Watch my hips crush plates of baked goods

Watch out for my body rolls!
Watch out for my body rolls!
High kicks!
High kicks!
This is how we do it!

Watch out for my body rolls!
Watch out for my body rolls!
High kicks!
High kicks!
This is how we do it!

‘Twas the last stitch on the final seam
He placed onto me, my leg hairs quivering
I know I needed them more than ever
But then he looked at my legs and said “NEVER!”
I was already wearing tight pants
I just did not activate them!

Wow!

Body roll body roll high kick high kick
This is how we do it

Body roll body roll high kick high kick

I’m a dance floor tiger lady pumping everything she has
Touching every single lad
Rubbing every lady blad?
Work that dance floor they may vote you mayor jazz
One day have a plaque that says “She wore the tightest of pants”

Watch out for my body rolls!
Watch out for my body rolls!
High kicks!
High kicks!
This is how we do it!

Watch out for my body rolls!
Watch out for my body rolls!
High kicks!
High kicks!
This is how we do it!

this corbel was made in 12th century AD. could it be the 1st cuteoverload post?


wowsers. looks like something from like 19th, 20th or 21st century.

i’ve never seen anything from the middle ages (or whatever 12th C qualifies as) as cheeky as this.

maybe it is the earliest known cuteoverload.com post. u know, in 12th century b4 the interwebs, there were no “bloggers” as we know them today. instead, people built buildings and posted images on them as public art.

maria bamford’s youtube series = brilliant.


i fucking love the interwebs for things like this. this is the 1st of a 19 part youtube vid series. watch them all.

so this commedienne actor grrl has a breakdown in LA and lands back at home in her 30s at her parrents’ house while she gets her meds stablized and gets her shit together.

first, i love that she admits to taking psych meds and having incapacitating neuroses. humor it totally the best way to deal w/ it. and it brought a ray of sunshine to my day.

she’s lucky she has a supportive family. many families wouldn’t b so supportive.

second, she is fucking fun! i want friends and coworkers like this. i want her in my office doing something.

i wish she’d done more vids like this.

this is her web site. she’s a fucking hoot.

etsy featured a ring of mine on their homepage today. coolio.


i like jared spool


i’ve never written about work-related stuff here because this retarded blog is supposed to be a fun place. but, the following was so fun and enjoyable that i am compelled to post about it. it is in no way retarded, so i might have to rename my blog.

the illustrious mr. jared spool gave a talk at a NYC UX org a few weeks ago but i couldn’t make it.

i’d never heard him speak before but i’d read his nerd-famous blog brain sparks which is ok.

luckily for us netizens, the presentation slides and audio are on the intertubes —
http://www.slideshare.net/jmspool/revealing-design-treasures-from-the-amazon

this is an especially remarkable talk because most IA/UX speakers are overly-serious and uptight and at times boring  (imho). but, mr. spool is not any of those things which is a great relief! its like phew someone like me to whom i can relate.

and of course, he’s a smart guy so he’s worth listening to.

i loved young victoria the movie!


looooooved it!

a teenaged grrl becomes queen and tells her mother to f* off. she bosses around old grown men. ppl bow to her constantly. she does what she wants, not what they want her to do. and she falls in love for real with a really nice guy who supports her being queen. and they both want to help ppl. it all brings a tear to your eye. why can’t my life be like this.

when it ended i was like what its over already? i wanted it to go on.

check it out.
