Feel Good Friday – Don’t Get Me Wrong

I watched the movie version of “The Avengers” a couple of weekends ago. What dreck that was. I wanted it to be really groovy, what with Ralph Fiennes and Uma Thurman on board, but no. The dialogue was stilted. There was absolutely zero chemistry between the leads. Rotten to the core.

The Averngers original television series had such style and, lord, was it sexy. Looking back, I realize now I had a huge crush on Emma Peel as played by Diana Rigg. Wow! She was some hot, hard-to-handle stuff.

I bring all that up because I was reminded of one of my favorite lines from a song this morning.

And when I went to pull the video for Feel Good Friday fun, lo and behold, I had forgotten the original video had an Avengers type of theme.

So, today, I present to you Chrissie Hynde and The Pretenders with “Don’t Get Me Wrong.”


Oh, and that favorite line. It’s this one –

“Don’t get me wrong
If I split like light refracted
I’m only off to wander
Across a moonlit mile”

10 Most Embarrassing Moments In White People Dancing History

I have told you people before that I have no musical ability nor rhythm.

I’m flogging a dead horse here at the SQ nest lately with all this musical talk it seems, but when I do flog it’s in a staccato and non-rhythmic way of course.

Despite that information, I do enjoy dancing whether anybody else enjoys my efforts or not. I think Elaine from Seinfeld captured my mojo magic perfectly.

Granted, I’m not the lone purveyor of party dance fouls, but fortunately no video exists of my smooth moves (fingers crossed.)

However, thanks to the glory of the innerwebs, other people’s dance disasters have been shared with the rest of the world.

Manofest has clips of the 10 Most Embarrassing Moments in White People Dancing History (not including Elaine).

The list includes celebrities, politicians, athletes and just folks trying to step in style with poor results.

If you’re in need of a laugh today, it’s funny stuff.
