Entry: Extreme Papaya November 16, 2007



< jolography once more >

   I have the sudden urge to turn on this here webcam and shoot a video of myself dancing to the tune of Urszula Dudziak's "Papaya."  But not today: not ever.  Edu Manzano's "dance moves" are viral, in that they speak of a certain resurgence of jologs.  The other day at GMA-7's morning talk show "Sis," a dance step as familiar as an old sock was performed: the steps made by the Universal Motion Dancers for Erasure's "Always."

   I remember how Wowie de Guzman once described UMD's "philosophy" of dance moves: "Yung ginagawa naming moves, yung madaling masundan, para masayaw ng lahat ng tao."  Trust me: I have long since tried to imitate the "Butterfly Step," but I never really got it.  Having "two left feet" is an understatement: not to be judgmental or bigoted or anything, but a blind deaf-mute paraplegic with the intelligence of a lima bean can dance way better than I could.  Given the chance, I would be thrown out of the "Wowowee" set because I do a horrible performance of Willie Revillame's populist dance moves for "Boom Tarat Tarat," "Iyugyog Mo," and heaven forbid, "Sayaw Darling."

   Granted that we all can't be a Vhong Navarro or an Iya Villania (in the case of aged folks reading this, consider Vilma Santos), but I know a few dance moves.  While my brother is a more able dancer than I am, we pride ourselves on such moves as the Butter Churn, the Overhand Hammer, the Underhand Hammer, the Robin Gibb, the Rope Pull, the Electric Banana, and just about every dance step you can get from a bad disco movie.

   Pressure me enough and I'll probably demonstrate them.
