Men dancing is often a cause of confusion, bemusement and shame. Your writer used to opt for the crowd move, wherebye you wait for the dancefloor at the wedding or Bar Mitzvah to fill before heading into its centre. The human shield makes dancing almost enjoyable. But I say used to do because when the song changes and enough people leave the floor, and you’ve not noticed, you can end up as the only dancer to Animal Nightlife’s Mr Solitaire.
To avoid the pain you need a set manly dance anyone can do. So. Here are two Swedish gentlemen demonstrating ‘The Bear Dance’. The soothing background music only adds to the wonder:
EVER been to a disco that made you feel awkward, terrible and upset at the realisation that you were among your people?
TWO lines to listen out for in this video of a man on a bike doing a 22mph wheelie in the City of London and the policeman telling him off:
Our favoutite is, “Get out the SQuare Mile and don’t come back”. John Wayne would be proud.
That narrowly beats, “You can tell your friends about the big telling off you got from a policeman on a horse”.
WE’VE had this on loop all day:

JEREMIAH McDonald explains the creative process:
HOW do you cut a very tall tree in a very tight space. Scott Augur explains:
“I walked around this thing with a plumb bob. I got back at various angles and looked at it. There was no limb weight to one side or the other. It was just, if you were going to try to shoot a tree between two buildings with five inches of clearance on both sides, this would be the tree to use,” he said.
Measure twice, cut once.

THOUGHT For The Day: Champagne, By Jim Jarmusch:
THIS is the most accurate toy representation of a real cat ever:
PRANKSTER pranked. No, it’s not fake blood pouring from the nose of the fool who pretended to rob someone using an ATM machine.
The ‘Reckless Youth’ merry pranksters are Sydney’s Daniel Maran, 19, Robert Milazzo and little George Proestos, both 16.
Daniel was playing the victim. He says:
“The reason we made the video was it was a social experiment and what we wanted to try prove was that there are people out there that are going to help in a robbery. Literally in every clip someone came and pulled George off me except in the last clip where it went a bit far. We don’t blame anyone for that, we expected that.’’
Did George expect that?

EVGENI Plushenko’s Pony Bomb Routine has been remixed to Ginuwine’s Pony. It is unforgettable:
While sitting on his dad’s lap, this happy 16-month-old boy has his eyes glued to the screen, quietly watching Man of Steel. When Superman takes first takes flight in the film, this little guy gets really excited and adorably emulates his hero by throwing his arms up in the air.
HOME Movies. Not the sort you record on your smart phone and show off to strangers in Facebook. We’re talking about those 8mm home movies filmed on clunky, whirring cameras. YouTuber Lance R has compiled some old homemade films into Scary Home Movies.
The story is that where I used to work, we did home movie transfers. After the film transfer, we would add classical music to the videotape. For this particular one, we only listened to the beginning of the CD, and didn’t realize that later in the album the music turned…shall we say, a bit “dark.” The combination of the music and the film content made for a very interesting result. Needless to say, the customers came back in and demanded to know if we thought this was “funny.” I don’t know if they believed us when we said it truly was just an unfortunate accident.
