If you’re not going to comic con clap your hands.
*clap* *clap*
If you live no where near it clap your hands.
*clap* *clap*
if your favorite cast is showing and you’re dying ‘cause you’re not going.
then go ahead and cry and clap your hands.
*clap* *clap*

My second favorite show was canceled so I don’t think the cast is going either.

Okay, my fellow swing dancers and jazz enthusiasts - I need help finding a particular version of Bei Mir Bist Du Shein/Schoen. I know for a fact that it is not the Ella Fitzgerald, Andrews Sisters, Swing Ninjas, Girls From Mars, The Blue Vipers of…

I agree… Janis Siegel seems to fit the description. I tend to describe it as “starts off east coast, blues in the middle, ends with Lindy”. The only other modern recording I can think of is The Puppini Sisters, but it’s a bit fast and certainly doesn’t have a blues element to it. 

I’d also try looking up Jennifer Keith (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1yK_9CtJ74)…if not as a match, then as another fun version to dance to.

Me: “What browser are you on?”

Client: “Google.”

Me: “Google Chrome?”

Client: “No, just regular Google.”

Me: “That’s the site. I want to know the browser.”

Client: “Google.”

Me: “No.”

Client: “Look, we can have this conversation forever, man. But when I hit the internet logo, Google comes up!”

Me: “Okay…What does that “internet logo” look like?

Client: “…A fiery fox, I guess. But that’s irrelevant.”
