In honor of the holiday: It''s Turkey-Lurkey Time!
The original Misses Polanski of Accounts Receivable, Wong of Mimeograph, and de la Hoya of Petty Cash show us how it''s done.\
btw, this is a recently put-up version of the Tony Awards clip that''s MUCH clearer than the one that''s been up on youtube for years.
This may be a silly question, but don''t these gals get terrible headaches?\
The dark haired woman in the white shirt and dark vest is repeatedly THROWING her head from side to side.\
I know that they were all Breck girls in the 60''s, and it was all about flipping the hair, but...OUCH!
Seth says everyone BUT Donna needed chiro every week - Donna says, "What''s so hard? What''s so hard?" as she''s yanking her neck around. Seth is not the queen of enunciation and speaks very quickly but it''s a great bit.
r17, that''s the original production on the Ed Sullivan Show with some replacement performers. Julane Stites had moved up to McKechnie''s spot. Subsequently, both Lada Edmund and Baayork also danced that role.
r 15 & 16: Isn''t he adorable? And he''s doing it BAREFOOT which has to kill his feet.%0D\
What really makes the clip for me is to see how much joy he''s getting out of the number.%0D\
He''s having a blast!
Turkey lurkey lumpy bumpy
DAMN, those guys at r14 ROCKED the shit out of that number!!! Yes, it''s the gayest thing on DL today BUT they learned every bit of that choreography and were just incredible! Danced their cute little asses clear OFF!%0D\
You ignite silly and gay and campy and fun with TALENT and that''s what you get! Awesome, fellers! The tall guy has some Tommy Tune action going on.
Xmas-Eve Eve bump!
I love r11's the best.
Gay men -
There is nothing admirable, funny or worthy in mimicing women. Be proud of who YOU are, not what you think you want or should have been.
As a gay man myself, I hate it that so many of us have such low self esteem that we resort to pretending to be female. There is nothing useful in it, nothing about a female any of us should want to be like.
Women only use this shit to mock us and laugh behind our backs. Stand up, be proud and be a man, girl.
In my next life, I want to dance on Broadway.
Stop stuffing people in your little boxes, r31.
R33 - What is it about calling on gay men to be aware of their own male identities and asking them to consider idolizing females is putting them in "little boxes"?
Why are we expected by you to be jesters and minstrels and to ask and parody women when we should be redefining the rules of masculinity and taking pride in how men entertain?
People like you are the ones who want to keep us in boxes. That's your comfort zone. I'm saying we should come out and break the bonds of stereotype and reject living, idolizing and acting like women. There is no pride in that.
R33, is this salute to the holidays acceptable to you?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
