As per the request of one of the DanceNet readers, here are copies of the past ramblings of the DanceNet Webmaster.
When you are called to meet your Maker, if you're given a choice between Heaven and Hell, we all know you'll ask "Which has more dancing?"
Another weekend, another successful roadtrip.
As I've said before, the big dances out in the 'burbs are more diverse in their offerings because their crowds tend to enjoy a variety of dances. It might also be due to a smaller crowd of dancers than the bigger cities. It also encourages a wider community of dancers to dance together.
I like the hall at this event. It's smaller than some of the venues here, but it has the right proportions so that the sound carries well so there are no dead spots or bad sound effects. The band had good energy and I think people up this way should give them a listen. As far as I can see, they play what the promoters tell them to play.
The dance got out at 11:30 pm so I got home by about 2:00 am in the morning (which included detours in search of an open Dunkin' Donuts and McDonald's. You know those roadside signs that indicate restaurants and gas stations at the next exit? I think they should offer computerized signs with LED lightning that tell you if those places are still open late at night. I had a craving for french fries at the Golden Arches.
Having an MP3 player along for the trip made the drive more enjoyable. I was able to charge up mine at the dance so I'd have music for the drive home. And that radio transmitter made it more enjoyable to hear it through the car stereo.
I gotta talk to Roger Weiss about having a reservation list for the big Boston Swing Dance Network dance on April 14. I'm spreading the word on my travels and I know a bunch of out-of-towners will be showing up for this event and I don't want them to get shut out.
