Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

I remember a long time ago reading a comment comparing Tommy Tune to Charles "Honi" Coles.  Amazing eloquence in just a few words:

"Tommy Tune danced all around the stage; "Honi" Coles stood in one place and made the stage dance around him,"

sk8eycat I have not seen that movie before. I like Sammy's dancing and singing. He is wiry and agile. Thanks.

Patricia, I thought I did a pretty thorough search for Kelly dance scenes, but didn't find ones in which he shone. Singin' in the Rain is a favorite of mine as well. I looked again and still don't find a good video. The search is on!

Patricia, I bet you have a lot of dvd's; what is your favorite of Flatley? I couldn't find a piece I liked by Kelly, he was doing more acting than dancing. Do you have a favorite of his?

Carl, Nicholas Brothers in Stormy Weather are great! Such energy!  I wonder what condition their legs and joints were in as they got older? Can't even imagine doing such things with my legs at any time.

sk8eycat the Hope and Cagney dance routine is great! Brings back great memories. 

Carl, I like the old timer, "You're the cream in my coffee". My Dad's dance band used to play that when I was very small, before WWII. Dad on sax and clarinet, my uncle on banjo, and others of their buddies played at granges and for school parties. My Dad's name was Jules, and in the second grade they read a book called "Jules the Drake". He became Drake from that day on. His band was Drake and his Ducklings. I gave his sax to my great-granddaughter this spring. She said all the valves work and only needed new pads and a reed. 

Patricia, what a sight, a saddled moose! They can be mean critters. Did you ever see them ridden?

Sk8eycat, that's a GREAT clip.  Those two were very talented.  You never really saw Hope dance much....except for the occasion soft shoe.  He really was really a great tap dancer. 

You've reminded me of The Nicholas Brothers.  They are a favorite of mine.
