I’m A Red Hot Mama

May 17, 2013

“You were on the news!” two people informed me before I left for work this morning. Since I’m pretty sure I didn’t get arrested, I went a-searching for this fabled footage. Good old New On 6 was down at Mayfest last night, and while I knew that they were there, I reckoned that they would capture the smooth moves of…I don’t know…anyone else with more experience. Like Jamin Jackson, who you can see in the background for a moment, who is a lindy instructor of international caliber. Instead there’s this:

As most people do, my eyes immediately found every wrong move and flaw in my camera readiness. However, let this be a testament to anyone who tsks at the lack of consistency in my blogging (because you’re all so invested in my blogging). I’m super busy making the news.


P.S. I will give a pair of Faux Suede earrings to the first person who gets the title of this and how it relates to the video, I swear it.

    You look fantastic! And you’re a red, hot mama dancing like Mary Pickford in My Best Girl. We need to watch that again.

    Were you dancing to “I’m a Red Hot Mama” by Victoria Spivey (one of my faves, wink wink)? I did check the definition of “red hot mama”… you’re gonna want to check that out!

      So close! But Hannah Tranberg has it for the win. The line is paraphrased from Mary Pickford’s character, Maggie Johnson, in the silent film My Best Girl. She also drops gems such as “None of that bunk for me. A jazz life every time!” in the same monologue. So I feel that I identify pretty strongly with her.

      Hannah, you win! A pair of earrings for you!
