I may have mentioned that I had a presentation that I was giving this morning to the Trade on growing one's design business. I think it went very well. Feedback seems to suggest this. It was also unexpectedly cool to see my name up in big lights at the Internation Centre. I would have taken a picture but I got all shy suddenly. It was actually shocking in a good way.
I'm pretty passionate about this design biz thing so it was great to hang out with people who suffer/celebrate/struggle with the same things I have or continue to waggle a finger at. If you are in the Trade in and around the GTA (sorry it's not open to consumers) you should really check out SOFA. Great things in the works there. I totally look forward to speaking there again. My mind is in overdrive...
Speaking of overdrive okay well driving actually. As I was driving back to my office I was thinking about last night's So You Think You Can Dance or #SYTYCD. I was incensed by a comment that Nigel Lythgoe made to Cyrus. Now if you don't know what I'm talking about the skinny on it is this: Cyrus is an Animator. No I don't mean he draws pictures and makes them into cartoons - it's a type of dance. Not quite hip hop or B Boy but there are definitely similarities at times. Think Hip Hop in slow motion. It's insanely cool. Like brilliantly so. Moreover, this guy has the biggest heart and oozes charisma. He is beyond watchable. His competition is fierce and equally as talented. In fact, the top 4 on the show should all win if I could make it so. However, only a top guy/girl can win.
So why on earth am I blogging about this?
I love love love the show and evil Fox Network reduced the series from two shows a week to one. It has sucked this season format wise especially with SO MUCH TALENT. Fox you guys are morons. Okay that's not why I'm blogging but I'm taking the opportunity to tell Fox to sod off. Jerktastically. So Nigel, big judge/exec producer for the FIRST TIME EVER told Cyrus that he wasn't going to vote for him (despite the show being about America's favourite dancer not best dancer) and that he was voting for Chehon. I think that's how you spell it. He apologized to him for it... you know in the way I'd say to Nigel - "Hey Nigel you are BRILLIANT for coming up with this show but in this case MAN are you DIM for saying such a thing to someone...." You see how I did that. I was chuckling to myself in the car as I drove because I came up with that. You see I tweeted to him last night to tell him what an ASSHAT he was for saying that to Cyrus who had to stand there and basically be HUMILIATED . I mean what can a dancer say to that. He had to stand there while Nigel was unburdening himself while atop a soapbox. I had other dim types tweet to me saying that he HAD apologized. I mean these gene pools aren't so deep ya know??
Anyway, perhaps my own wading pool needs to be refilled for blogging about this but I JUST HAD TO. I hope it backfires against Nigel. Though Chehon is the most gorgeous dancer I'd let both guys win over the girls who are amazing as well. I just really like the guys this year.
If you haven't seen either of the guys shirtless, I totally recommend. I mean HELLLLLLOOOOOOOO.
Me thinks it's time for an early day here at MHD. Je suis Le Fried.
