Discussion in 'Dancing on TV' started by Laura, Jul 9, 2005.
Quoted (in full) from Salon.com:
I love Heather Havrilesky!!!
ROTFL! This is hilarious. I guess I must be at least 3000 years old, myself. :roll: :lol:
I for one, noticed the bunnies taking over the world comment right away....
Absolutely busted a gut laughing while reading this . . . great stuff!
And, big bouncing boobies . . . hell, no wonder I voted for Kelly!
Finally . . . who's Lawrence Welk???
The Lawrence Welk show was one of televisions's most enduring musical series. The show debuted as a summer replacement show in 1955, and went on to last an amazing 27 years. Lawrence Welk's format was simple: easy-listening music, what he referred to as "champagne music," and a "family" of wholesome musicians, singers, and dancers.
LOL . . . that show was way "before my time."
Well, I guess I must also fall into the 3,000 year old category, because I remember the show.
Me too! Tiny bubbles in the wine! Make me feel happy! Make me feel fine!
Tiny bubbles make me warm all over
With a feeling that I'm gonna love you 'til the end of time.
Do I fall into the 3000 years old category even though I was born 6 years before the show ended? I do remember it though!
I'm J/K . . . I "had" to watch it every weekend with my parents, but you know . . . I remember those nights when the "right" song came on . . .
especially those faster songs that could be Jitterbugged to (which, if I recall, was seldom on that show) but my Mom (NY State Jitterbug champion, two-years in-a-row) would grab me, and a-dancing we went . . .
"Thanks, Mom."*tears swelling*
The warm fuzzy good memories.... :together:
I loved Lawrence Welk. It was cheesy, but lots of fun. Plus it was the only thing on TV early on Saturday evenings for years and years when I was little. And it was a heck of a lot classier than Hee-Haw. :lol: :lol:
I admit to loving Hee-Haw too...
No comment. :roll: :lol:
I knew you were joshing way back here.... :tongue:
Yea . . . you know how old I really am . . . now we both are "legal drinking age, eh?"
OMG! Hee Haw??!!! LMAO!
I remember being at my grandparents' house and them watching Lawrence Welk. I take it he's no longer alive?? Or maybe I'm thinking of Merv Griffin. And do y'all remember Dinah Shore??
Oh boy. Major flashbacks. I'm even bearing to mind my Vinny Barbarino book covers. Man was I popular that September *LOL*
Me too! We were made to watch it. We only tolerated it because if we sat quietly and behaved through it, we were allowed to stay up past bedtime and watch "To Tell The Truth" which came on afterwards.
