Hey everybody, it's that guy. Doing that thing he does again. [8 Meg wmv] Look at him go, he sure does that thing well, that guy. Remember when he did his thing in that orange shirt?

I've got in the habit of busting out whenever my body and mind are not occupied. While I'm waiting for my lunch to heat up in the microwave or when I'm browsing through the aisles at the supermarket I'll usually be practicing something.

I would also really like to watch him microwave a burrito at the 7-Eleven.

That has to hurt. If it doesn't now, it will in a few years when his joints all disintegrate due to being stretched too far in the wrong direction. Way cool to watch, though.

Even if I ate 20 hotpockets a day, my running man will improve. Woe is me.

I think the key qualifier I forgot there was NEVER.

My running man will never improve.

Holy crap, that was cool.

Looking for influence beyond dancing - Dancing is an Art form that is based on movement. Beyond the scope of dancing there is a world of movement to be inspired by: machines, nature, kangaroos, etc.

Okay, now that's just silly.

Calling Warp "one of the bigger IDM labels" is a bit of an understatement.

I recognize the Kraftwerk from Kollaboration 2001, but anyone know the track for Elsewhere2.avi? I rather like it.

abcde - the track used is from the artist mu-ziq... either from the 'lunatic harness' or the 'brace yourself' ep... can't recall which.

Great artist, buy/download all his stuff.

This kid is the Da Vinci of dance. He's controlling his body from the outside.

Not so much with the wordsmithing, though.

He seems to have more moves in the latest clip but nothing beats the shock value of the first clip (2001). Something about seeing him in contrast with "normal" dancers still makes me shiver, plus the audience reaction is more moving in the first clip. They seem a bit jaded now. Hopefully he will expand his repertory so he doesn't turn into a sideshow act.
