I’m back, I’ve watched the show… And what in the hell was Val thinking? It started out OK and then it turned into a bad parody of Derek’s fox trot with Nicole that happened in like week three or four combined with the dumbed down version of his Singin’ in the Rain with Bethany. Good lord. What happened to the good old days when bad freestyles actually got like 8s?? Cuz that was bad…and everyone was pretending it was great. How annoying can you get? …Read more

I am on the road and hopefully will be in my hotel room in time to watch the show…if not, Courtney will hopefully jump in. I can’t decide if me missing the show would be a good thing…or a bad thing. 🙂
T-minus 30 minutes…
I found out I can’t watch live, so Courtney will be at the helm this evening. Before I go, here’s the dance order per George Pennachio:
Court reporting for duty 🙂 I’m currently trying to tweet, take notes for the power rankings, update this post, and make a gender reveal cake for a coworker. Needless to say, I’m getting pretty adept at spreading myself too thin these days…thank god the show is only an hour tonight!
Erin looks kinda matronly in that dress tonight. Really ages her. I’m just kinda over Ginger, so none of this package is really resonating with me.
WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST WATCH???!!! What a bizarre, uninspired, un-cohesive mess. It was like they did a half-assed freestyle (that was really just cherry-picked props and moves from other routines this season) and then decided to call it a contemporary. And the judges are seriously gonna gush about how great it was?! Good god, I’m not sure I want to see what else is coming…
Pleasantly surprised that Carrie Ann & Bruno gave it 9’s (although I think that was even kind) while Len falls in line with the narrative and gives it a 10. And I’ve already heard enough about Ginger’s back spasms to last a lifetime.
Errrr…that was a pretty rough quickstep from Nyle. Felt like he never got 100% on top of the beat, and was bouncing out of sync with Peta. I really wish she had given him a better growth arc over the course of the season.
Paige just schooled both Ginger & Nyle on how to do a redemption dance. Mark also showed Peta & Val what a good choreographer can do.
Len’s critique is utter bullshit. Guess we know who he’s been instructed to prop up…*cough*GINGER*cough*…but 29/30 is still good.
Val, I’mma give you a piece of advice, free of charge: if you yourself do not know how to tap dance with any level of proficiency, DO NOT CHOREOGRAPH A FREESTYLE THAT HAS ANY LENGTH OF TAP DANCING IN IT!!!! That was almost comically bad to watch – Val flailing around doing a tap dance pantomime. The rest was pretty white bread, nothing remarkable. But it’ll prolly get a 30…
…and it does. I guess the best we can hope for at this point is all 3 freestyles getting a perfect 30, and the judges tossing it to the audience. If they undeservingly shaft Paige, though, I’m guessing they’re reeeeallllly pushing hard for Ginger to win.
Not 100% sure how I felt about Nyle’s freestyle. He danced it well, but I feel like it’s just yet another angsty routine we’ve seen from him. Wish we could have seen something more fun, upbeat, and celebratory.
“Best dance on the show ever”, Carrie Ann? Bitch PLEASE. Go smoke some more crack.
Paige, PLEASE knock this outta the park…
…and she does 🙂 Just lovely. Anyone else get the impression that we may have just witnessed Mark’s last freestyle on DWTS, though? I have never seen him get so emotional.
And now I’m stepping away for a bit, kids – look for the power rankings in a bit. Also got a cake to finish. Aaaaack.
Since this past week won’t actually result in an elimination all on it’s own, I took my time writing this and I’m doing it on my new MacBook, so I’m learning at the same time. 🙂
Well, last Monday sucked pretty bad – the one bright spot being that Paige got through to the final which makes me very happy. Last Monday was the first week that I was mostly wrong on who was going home. Wanya was my third choice – bummed about that, but at least we lost Antonio. We still have someone in the final who really shouldn’t be there and that’s Ginger. I would say “that’s how it goes sometimes” but I won’t because the pimping has been relentless. The takeover of every single DWTS segment on GMA is one thing…but the DWTS official twitter accounts are sickening with their focus on Ginger. Have you seen their latest photo of the finalists with Ginger right out in front? It’s not even subtle any more. I don’t get it. She seems like a nice woman, sure – but she’s not all that as a dancer and Val is doing nothing for her in terms of choreography. Their motives are pretty transparent – she’s family. …Read more

“All Is Number” – Plato
“Numbers are the universal language offered by the deity to humans as confirmation of the truth.” – St. Augustine
It’s a Tight One, Folks!
Undoubtedly you know who Pythagoras was. Well, if you don’t, surely you remember his theorem that you labored over in geometry class, a2 + b2 = c2. Remember him now? Well, this guy Pythagoras was a well-renown Greek philosopher who taught all of his students how to “read” numbers. In fact, he’s considered the first “pure” mathematician (math that has no practical purpose), and also he was the originator of what we know as numerology today. But, Pythagoras had other credits too. He was a philosopher, scientist, astronomer, musician, and a spiritual teacher. He taught his followers that a person’s entire destiny could be read from the numbers of a person’s birthdate and name. His foundational premise was that everything in the universe vibrates to its own frequency and is represented by a number.
Pythagoras and his followers were not the only group that believed in the impact of numbers on one’s life. Enter the Chinese, the Japanese, as well as the Chaldeans, Hebrews, Egyptians, Phoenicians, even the early Christians. And of course, we all know about the Mayans (and their famous calendar), and the Incas.
After a thousands years or so of the use of numerology by Roman Catholic theologians, in 325AD, the church’s first Council of Nicaea removed numerological practices from church orthodoxy. Despite this removal, however, the practice and the fascination with numerology continued to grow to this day. And it’s this science that we will use to predict the winner of Season 22. Well…we’ll give it the good ole college try anyway. ☺
Let’s get started, shall we? Read more..
