Living in This Crazy Little City By The Bay: San Francisco
the Nicholas Brothers,
tangobaby.... i laughed out loud in front of my computer!! is that "the office"?? remember that episode when they were discussing the difference between an elf, a fairy, and a dwarf? that scene was such a classic... hehe...
Ah, yes...that would be Season Two, Episode Five. Simply the best thing to ever happen to television, and I don't even own a TV. God bless the BBC.We are one our second set of The Office DVDs, including the Christmas special, because we wore the other ones out. I didn't even know you could wear out a DVD.Yes, I love the part about the midgets, dwarves and elves. And Gareth's Ultimate Fantasy...priceless.When you decide to come out to SF and live with me and/or Ms. Tango Hours, we can have Office marathons on our projection system with the pull-down 10' movie screen.
Love those videos. Astaire with absolutely anyone. Or anything :-)And the tapdancing brothers? Incomparable. I especially like the shorter one's "do" after they're done.
Sadly, the Nicholas Brothers are not as known as they deserve. They starred in just a handful of films, some on DVD, some not, but anyone who's come after them, including Fred Astaire, James Cagney and Gene Kelley (all of them amazing talents in their own right) owe a debt of gratitude to these brothers, who electrified audiences and paved the way for musicals and dancers on the silver screen.I have a documentary about the Nicholas Brothers that had an interview with Mikhail Baryshnikov who said that in his opinion, the Nicholas Brothers were the greatest dancers who ever lived.
