What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?



It’s Election Day, and I just can’t think about it anymore. Beloved, besties, and I all made use of early voting in NY, so now we’re all trying to put it out of our minds for a few hours before the nail biting begins anew.

So I thought today was a perfect opportunity for something completely mindless (and utterly non-political). These are the wonderfully-edited movie dance mashup videos by kingofkungfu2002. The user’s YouTube channel is full of martial arts compilations (which do not interest me in the slightest), but when he? she? turns their talents to dance compilations, it’s pure magic.

Enjoy, and if you’re in the U.S., please get out and vote!

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

  1. Maybe I’ll watch these instead of election results 😉 Far less stressful and the costuming is as much a treat as the dancing….

  2. Hang in there, Lovely. Ella and her friends (she’s in 8th grade) have been having actual panic attacks (like the kind that send them to the ER). Her “tribe” is all LGBTQ kids, and they are terrified. I’ve always been a bit nervous on election day… but never SCARED before this year. And I was certainly never scared as a kid. But hey, it’s not constant: Sometimes the fear is supplanted by overwhelming sadness. 😦

  3. These are great. Some I have never seen . Dancing used to be an art but todays kids just shake their booties and don’t have a clue about real dancing.

  4. YUCK, this got me thinking of the Radio City Rockettes. They are probably out of work and that is sad. One of the all-time great dancers. I know what it takes to be a good dancer and taking 6 to 12 months off does the body harm. You need that daily exercise so I hope somewhere they are still working out. Yes, the ones that Donna posted are great also.

  5. Hope there is some relief now and certainly there can be some respect from those of us outside the USA. People went out in great numbers and voted. I shall now get up and dance!
