I’m running late with my FGF post today but I want to share this song that you guys may or may not have heard. It’s MGMT’s “Electric Feel” and it’s this week’s Feel Good song b/c #1–it’s happy beat!, #2–my boyfriend and I jammed to this album all summer and I’m all about thinking warm thoughts right now; #3–We listened to a MGMT song during hoop class, so this band is definitely hoopable!
Just try to not dance when you hear this, I dare you. Bonus points if you can tell me what the riff is from….I’m hearing some Rod Stewart but my boyfriend insists it is something else.

Hooping practice video (1/8/09) to Lostprophet’s “We Still Kill the Same Way.” First published video of me hooping, enjoy it while I’m sober. 🙂 It’s hosted on Vimeo b/c I don’t want to crash WordPress.com by uploading it to this server…..it probably wouldn’t happen but it could…..ah, just go to the link and watch it.

Last Saturday I purchased 2 tix to summercamp music & camping festival (may 22-25) for my boyfriend and myself. One of the scheduled acts is Dark Star Orchestra, a Grateful Dead tribute band that is so deep in the Dead they will play an entire show as a setlist from a particular show (i.e., New Year’s Eve 12/31/2008 Baltimore show was a re-creation of the 12/31/78 Winterland Arena set) *and* use the instruments and gear for the particular era they are re-creating. While taping my Dead-inspired twin hoops Sunshine & Daydream, I chilled out to the sounds of Dark Star Orchestra and caught this gem of a tune.
Here is the Grateful Dead, 10/9/89, @ Hampton Coliseum performing “Jack A Roe.”
