5. Late 90s/Early Oggts Music Videos
I was born in ’84, so by 1999 I was completely at the age where I could appreciate TRL [MTV’s Total Request Live]. I would watch TRL every day while doing homework and learn to dance – Janet Jackson, ‘N Sync, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Destiny’s Child, TLC. He spent time and money on these music videos because they were the best marketing for his music at the time. It’s not quite the same anymore—I watch a lot of lazy music videos.
6. Video Games
I think video games are a real way for me to be cool. If I have time to play it means I have Time, which is rare. I play Super Smash Bros. in Abt in the lounge during lunch break. I love video games because the structure reminds me of classical ballet. There are a lot of similar story elements and musical structures, and the main characters are equally heroic. “The Legend of Zelda” would be such a good ballet. It has everything you could want – magic, beauty, great music.
7. Musical Numbers from the Golden Age of Hollywood
I often go to YouTube and watch great dance numbers from Old Hollywood. I love “AbrahamTap the number from “White Christmas”, where Vera-Ellen is in a yellow dress. He has another name”Mandy“That’s really cool. There’s one with Bob Fosse and Tommy Rall called “street dance, where they’re in an alleyway and it’s this virtuoso sort of “I-can-do-it-better” jazz number. And “Cabaret” is classy, tense, perfect.
8. Gay Bars
You never know what’s going to happen, and that’s a good thing. I have some favorites Phoenix in the East Village; Holiday Cocktail Lounge, which is not a gay bar, but it is frequented by gay people; And Julius’ in the West Village. in uk, Villagehandjob Gay is funny, Eden – They are my club.
9. Fire Island Pines
my first time Pines Was in 2017 for a dance festival, and every time I’m there I meet people who are innovators in their field, or independent thinkers, or just fascinating people with interesting histories. It reminds me of Andy Warhol and his faction – that element of all these creatives coming together.
10. Clothing Basics
I moved to Boston when I was 18, and as a young man, I struggled to find a comfortable look for myself. I was railing against the extreme, collegiate, straight looks of Bostonians, so I’d buy all this garbage from H&M and just wear ridiculous, sharp, obnoxious outfits. But it got to the point where I was like, “Oh my god, I’m tired and all these clothes are made of plastic.” So I turned to simple clothing as a way to acknowledge that the noise was inside for me. I’m not saying I don’t like to look noisy every now and then, but I do find comfort in easy, casual clothes like Levi’s, Converse, Adidas Sambas, plaid L.L. Bean button-downs, and vintage T-shirts.
