Day-to-day Irish dance
Uncanny, innit.

Uncanny, innit.

And here’s my Intimate Indispensable GIF creation video. :)

Here’s a link to my GIF post.

Here’s my intimate indispensable GIF for The Art Assignment. My main idea was to make a purely visual (non-audio) representation of a short ID combination.
Here’s a link to a vlog about how this GIF came to be.

Irish dancer’s pick up lines

For the gents:

  • I was as drunk as a gauger, but seeing you is such a sobering experience!
  • Who knew? That a girl can be as pretty as a garden of daisies!
  • I want you to feel safe, and I will never let you go, if you LET ME BE YOUR SOCK GLUE!
  • Honey, you light up the room brighter than a Gavin!

And for the ladies:

  • Have I ever told you how sexy you look in those heels? ;)
  • Let me slip into something more comfortable.
  • I will gladly be your lady, if you will be my gent.
  • You are like the vanishing lake at 70 - I’m happy to see you again, even after a thousand times.

Feel free to add more. :) Let’s try and keep it decent, though.

Sorry, this is kinda whiny. xD But seriously bro, it’s so difficult to like just stay relaxed at an important feis, let alone have fun with it.
I should mention I may be guilty of giving this advice once or twice myself, though. I’m not saying it’s bad advice, just that it can feel kinda frustrating to be on the receiving side. <3

I feel that it’s way easier to focus on your performance and enjoying your performance and being satisfied with it than it is to focus on placements and results. If you feel like you’ve done your best, you get this amazing feeling… And no one can take that away from you.

Seriously, it’s more fun to think about your performance and have fun than to stress about placements that are gonna be there anyways. I wanna kill the judges with confidence as much as I wanna pound out some awesome technique

I honestly don’t mind placing badly as long as I feel that I danced well. However, that doesn’t make the pressure go away. :D Cause when I’m at a feis I simply want to be able to dance close to my best.
So in my case, it’s not so much stressing over placements, but rather simply wanting to put on as good a performance as I can. When I dance at a pub or like any informal gathering, I really don’t mind making a mistake in my rhythm or messing up my steps, so I simply do have fun with it, and it often turns out quite ok, but sometimes it’s really horrible, obviously. XD
So basically what I’m saying is that when I’m at a feis, even if I know my steps to perfection, and am aware that no amount of thinking about it is gonna make it better - there will always be a bit of a nagging voice in my head telling me that I should focus on this or that part of my technique, otherwise I will mess it up…
BTW I’m so happy to have this kind of talk with you guys. :D Feel free to keep at it.
