We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Back then you could take your kid to most any movie, darn near, and not have much worry that you were corrupting them to a hedonist future. Sure, if they were of the right age or inclination they saw what you saw. But if not they just saw light, color, and heard music.
I guess anyway. As I can't remember ever missing a swervy sway.
heh --can't help but remember Norm on 'Cheers': "Women! Can't live WITH 'em, can't live with 'em."
--yuk yuk --but this 1949 clip is from back when we were ''repressed'' --remember --what the 60s were about, shakin' off that 'repression'?
that dance number is repressed?
Good point about, your kids could watch it and enjoy the music and motion and zany costume steps, while an adult would catch the ...uh, hmmm, stylized female sex act. I figured it out on about the 4th or 5th viewing. They start off visiting the museum, and are all just chatting away.
But the Prehistoric Man gets her motor running, and she throws in an extra verse at 00:36 --punning on 'bear skin', she looks at her bare skin arm, and says "I really LOVE bare skin" --and the laugh is in the guys' reaction, they all head swivel, and at once the dance begins. She's starting to own them.
1:19, another extra verse, "I LOVE self-expression!" --and up goes the volume, tempo, the big band crashes in, and it's showtime! Oh yeah, she owns 'em alright --
1:55, another extra verse, "I REALLY love tom-toms!" --and yikes, they all go monkey-dancing in a circle around her, she REALLy owns 'em now!
4:00, it don't need no words anymore, no extra verse anymore, she's pulled in close, they're laying on hands, and she starts a 25 second dance orgasm FINALE --
