Never Forget: The Olsen Twins Teach Us To Dance

So this past weekend was the family reunion which was great fun.  In addition, I got to see Dash and Overactive Blogger which is always a delight!  While at the seductive pool hall, OB reminded me of what is one of the greatest discoveries of all time.  Take it away, Mary Kate and Ashley!

Western line dancing, vogue, AND HIP HOP FREESTYLE?!?!

Shockandawe

I can’t wait!  Let’s start…

“Let’s get totally retro!” (00:54)

Bodyroll, bodyroll, bodyroll, bodyroll.
Step touch, step touch, step touch, step touch…
Bend, arms, bend arms, bend, arms, bend, arms
twirl, snap, twirl, snap!

Listen.   I just wasn’t ready.  I didn’t know they were going to keep it so sensual.

Next the ladies show us how to Charleston.  (01:45)

Meh…it’s no retro.  But I live for the green-screened effects.

One of them tells us we’re going to like this one big time as it’s our first solo! (2:22)

yass

Get in to her flawless footwork and hip movement! Karina Smirnoff could never!  So polished and professional!

We’re intro-ed into our sock hop dance with the greeting “Major Fun!” (03:00)

No thanks Ashley Kate.

“This one is hard!  Don’t stress!” for our 60’s dance lesson (03:37)

You can’t take this twist and shout!  Nor that take it to the floor girls.  Your fave can’t even compete.

SCORE! (04:02)

Ummmm…Mary Ashley?  That’s the electric slide.  Now, far be it from me to question our two intrepid dancing divas.  But really??  Those little turns aren’t going to distract me.

Try a little harder next time my dear.

Line dancing is totally the coolest, Mary!  (05:08)

Nothing to see here.  I do enjoy that she used the whole dancing space.

Holy shit, one of them is about to Vogue.  (05:52)

Get into the fierce hand movement.  The seductive steps.  The side to side with the Walk-Like-An-Egyptian arms.

This is what I am talking about.  COME ON SEASON SIX!

And now for our grand finale, it’s time for iconic hip hop freestyle!!!!! (07:07)

Yes.  Yes.  Yes.

Gravevine left, arms up.
Grapevine right, arms down.

A wonderful callback to the bend and snap from the opening number.

 YASSSSS FANCY FOOTWORK!!!!!

Don’t be jealous of their boogie!!!! Though I see why you would be.

And turn, LEG!

I don’t think anything will ever top that.

What was your favorite routine??  How inspired are you to be a dancer now??

My New Favorite Person: O’Shea Da Model

Hey People!

So before we get into the meat and potatoes of this entry, I want to talk a bit about Zendaya in the Aaliyah biopic. Now I don’t mind the casting seeing as how she is a singer and acts these days. My hope is that she gets positive press for it because she came across sweet on Dancing With The Stars and I love her song, Swag It Out.

But that’s enough of that. Time for my new bae, light of my life, and fruit of my loom. O’Shea Da Model.

Yes! O’Shea believes in you! So this king came into my life via Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. He was introduced when Young Joc tried to steal him from Erica at the bowling alley. He then volunteered to pay only to ask Erica for the money.

What a gentleman!

But then strife! Last night, Erica and Scrappy Doo met and O’Shea felt a way about it. So they fought and he left in a huff. Bye Ashy!!!!

But you see, O’Shea runs out of gas in his 2004 Ford Explorer. And has to call Erica to help. Erica finds him by some train tracks.

They argue about how he NEEDED to know about the meeting. Erica is all, you tried to make this dramatic ass exit and couldn’t do it because your car was E.

So at this point, Erica has pulled out her card and HE GRABS FOR IT WHILE ARGUING HE DOESNT NEED IT!!!!

I. Die.

EDIT: I was just reminded that he screamed “I KEIR!!!! I KEIR!!!!” during the argument.  He’s just so sensitive, you know!

Let me tell you that this is my absolute favorite scene from the show. I have not laughed so hard at so much struggle since Karlie Redd hit the Louis, Prada, Gucci on Season 1.

Listen, we all hit hard times. And we all need a little help sometimes. But to get on national television and run out of gas while making your dramatic exit?

Welcome to my heart!!!

Have you all been watching?  What do you think of trashy season?  Let me know!
