The Junk Drawer (September, 2011)
HBO trying to throw away money so much it buys a vintage train to run in New York.
Boardwalk Empire is fashioning a 1920s train to make some subway stops in new York during September for a publicity stunt. And, the reviewer mentions Oxford Bags.
The Artist Preview
A new film done in the style of a silent movie is coming out soon, and the preview is below. Try to ignore the “Sing, Sing, Sing = Old Timey” equation Hollywood always uses in previews. It’s actually quite annoying—imagine how much prettier the preview would be with silent-era Chaplin piano-style music, perhaps? Anyway, the film has gotten great reviews and looks very exciting. As these movies often inspire, a new, small surge of beginner dancers may be coming to swing soon. (Especially because, on the plus side, every time Sing, Sing, Sing is played in a preview, a swing dancer is born.)
P90X 2 is coming out soon
That’s right, the makers of P90X are putting out P90X2,and pre-order is open today (though it won’t come out until november/december, probably) supposedly, though I’m still trying to hunt down the info. And we here at Swungover will be one of the first to receive it, and will write reviews. You know, on top of juggling our dancing schedule and Grad school writing classes. Er…my God, what have I done.
Also, I’m on Facebook and Twitter
You can contact me or friend me on Facebook under the name Robert White (Bobby White), or, follow me on twitter, if you’d like to see something I write that’s not three pages long. (Robertwhiteiii)
