Something I've Never Understood

With Swee'pea doing half-days at daycare while I continue my work frantic work in Operation Organize the Whole House by Wednesday (Today!), I've been revisiting some of my old cds. I used to be/still am quite the disco freak, which I think I've mentioned here today. Listening to the soundtrack of Saturday Night Fever, I am reminded of something I have never understood.

Why did they choose such a cheesy slow song for their competition number? How could they ever expect to win when you can't really bust a move to it? They should totally have used Disco Inferno...

And... the other day, through a supremely talented South African flickrite who I really really admire, I discovered this guy. And I can't help but feel jealous/disheartened that he's only 17!!! Check out his portfolio of homeless people and the photojournalism stuff, which he just shot in India (with the flickrite). I'm really curious to know how they hooked up... he lives in Lindsay, Ontario.

Lindsay? That guy is from Lindasy? Those photos are amazing but it is so hard for me to acknowledge that b/c he is from Lindasy. I grew up believing that LCVI sucks. Ya, our football team can take ya!!!

It's amazing how petty childhood prejudices linger.

I can't believe that that guy is 17. I just spent a good 20 minutes at his site. Now I have to check out the other person.

It's amazing how this blogosphere brings people together.

It's always shocking when you encounter someone talented so young and so nearby. Lindsay has a funny repuation around here but I'm not going to write what that reputation IS.
Disco! I've never watched Saturday Night Fever, for one reason or another.

Beck, SNF is not really worth watching as far as the story goes, but I love the dancing! I don't even really know what the story is...
