View Full Version : I have no rhythm

What is up with that?

I was at a bar/pseudo club and I just couldn't pull off the whole schtick. How come being tall and white equals absolutely no rhythm at all? Even the people's chick had enough and walked away. Hell, even the rat looking motherfucker next to me was getting more play. I suck.

How many times do I tell you that I swing for the fences. I don't waste time on the little groupie chicks. But that dance floor was like a meat market and I was the guy trying to sell olive loaf.

And I was drunk and I blame my severe lack of rythym on being tall and white. I ended up doing the white guy shuffle and that isn't very appealing. Could have been worse I could have done my Steamer dance, and THAT would have been embarrassing.

I guess that is why I normally stick to bars.

Darling, as long as you have rhythm in one important area, namely the bedroom, chicks won't care if you can't dance.

Bastard, I'm not Tony Gwynn I'm more like Rob Deer. I either am going to hit it out or strike out. And when I hit that homer its not going to be just a generic homerun its going to be like the homerun in "The Natural", crowd going wild, lights exploding, all that shit.

Did u grow up listenin to hard rock and heavy metal? I ask cuz the white boys I know who aint got no rhythm are the one who be more into head bangin music. Metal aint got no groove and that why u stiff on the dance floor. The white boys who been listenin to rnb, freestyle and house since they was kids got more rhythm and some of them (not all of them) can even turn some brotha's out. :cool:

Ronny and I are white - and we tear up the dance floor. That is what attracted me to Ronny in the first place (at first sight)- And he said he noticed me also because of my dancing - I can dance for hours. And it is only when I dance that I feel so free (sounds like a Madonna song).

"Only when I'm dancing can I feel this free....at night, I jam the dance floor for everyone to seeeeee....I'm not tired of dancing and I'm not by myself - tonight I wanna dance with no one else."

This was a mad bootlegged club anyway. Way too many Joe High School/College types whose main interest was guarding the keg. Extremely ghetto.

Every single nightclub that I've ever been was badly overcrowded and too noisy to have even the simplest talk. And the music was the kind of that makes you deaf for a week after.

I've been going to dives lately because my friends all smoke and they started the smoking ban in Florida a few months back. You can't smokes in clubs/bars/restuarants etc....
Some places can get away with customers smoking if 10% or less of their revenue is food sales. So that's where we end up going! YUK, I need to get some friends that won't cause cancer!! :tape:

I have decided not to dance anymore. I just go to watch the spectacle.

Back in college, everytime I was drunk for the most part I would start dancing. It was AWFUL but people were amused and kept requesting me to "do the Steamer". It was basically me with my hands out palms down moving down up and down while bouncing a bit. Putrid.

So, in general, clubs suck and so do I.

I'm working on my statement of cash flows, and I have a bit of a dilemma...in my investing activities section, I bought some fixed assets on account...now, I know that's not a cash transaction, but my check figure for net increase in cash INCLUDES the cost of the purchase of these fixed assets. should I just ignore whether or not it's cash or noncash and include it in my investing activities or go ahead and add the the schedule of noncash investing transactions at the bottom of the SCF?

erm, let me check....

okay, I paid off one of them already...the second one I bought on Dec. 31st...hmm, apparently I debited fixed assets and credited accounts payable for the full amount. so...what should I do about the second one? My check figure (the answer for net increase in cash) includes my total investments in fixed assets.

Well, the entry putting it on the books was obviously right. I haven't done any of those statements in a long ass time and haven't started studying again for my CPA exam which I'm going to take in May.

I don't understand how purchasing fixed assets really effects your net increase in cash. You have to pay cash to obtain the fixed asset and most likely the terms on the sale is short-term. And what the hell do investments have to do with fixed assets? What did you buy? You would think that all your fixed assets will depreciate in time and not increase (unless of course you bought land).

aren't fixed assets included in investment spending? therefore, they're filed under cash flows from investing activities, yes? unless you sign a note for part of the purchase, in which case they go in the noncash investing activities section at the bottom on the SCF. or something. ah, fuck it. i'm gonna wing it, terence isn't gonna flunk me for one little thing like that. thanks, steam.

Sorry that I could be of no assistance to you. I haven't looked at that stuff in so long since I don't deal with it at all. The only fixed assets I know anymore are the ones that we need to calculate now due to GASB 34. Good luck with it though.

you dont get a refund?? thats bullshit.

Well, if no one reads my shit, why would they pay me? I'm paid for what I write, and if it doesn't get printed, it's like it never existed.

And this particular article was about the hurricane, so it's not like they can run it afterwards. Tough for beaters to get their shit held; if it doesn't run tomorrow, it's dated and will never run. Oh well.

At least everyone doesn't get paid. Well, I guess the copy editors would still get paid. :mad:

I only read your thread title but aren't you a white boy?? A straight one at that, i would see the :confused: if you were gay :p Maybe someone somewhere in this thread already tackled your race issues asscioated with rhythm :D I have a theory on this but it might be considered racist :D

Ah, the well-known myth that straight white males are amongst the most rhythmically challenged of folks. I fear there is an element of truth to it ;) Next time you go to a club, take an E. You still wont be able to dance, but you'll do it anyway, and wont be in the least bit self-conscious :p

don't worry about it steam. every guy friend i have who's met his lady love in a bar/pseudo club was glad to see it end eventually. if what you're looking for is a dance and a lay, then that's probably where you'll find it (which means you might need dancing lessons). but if it's something of substance you're trying to find, the bar/pseudo club is your worst bet.

That's right. If you're goin to clubs lookin to find a serious boyfriend or girlfriend then it aint gonna last. Some folk get lucky but usually it don't work out. I always feel sorry for folk who go to the clubs hopin to meet "the one". :sad:

i agree with you ys. i too love to dance. i hear music and i start moving no matter what i'm doing. and it's not dancing i was talking about, but in fact the whole nightclub atmosphere. too meat markety for me.

Girl I feel u on that. There are only 2 clubs I luv cuz almost all the folk are there just to get their dance on which is the reason to go to the clubs in the first place. U can meet up with your crew first and get the talkin out the way cuz when y'all hit the club it gon only be bout shakin your tailfeather. ;)

Every single nightclub that I've ever been was badly overcrowded and too noisy to have even the simplest talk. And the music was the kind of that makes you deaf for a week after.

Chile it don't sound like clubs are for u if the music too loud. :o If u wanna meet new folk u should see if there are any singles clubs where u live where u can meet a buncha folk your age who every week go out to dinner or somethin. My sista is in a club like that and they go to see plays once a month and things like that. She aint feelin the clubs just like u so she like that better cuz u can talk without screamin, kee-kee. :)

clubs are a waste of time. i hate sweaty people and shitty techno music.

Girl I disagree. :p ;) They are only a waste a time for folk who don't like to dance which should be the main reason why u goin there anyway. :cool: I cosign on the techno music!! I hate that ish but I aint hatin those folk who get their groove on to it. Gimme some rnb and some hip hop and I am good to go. :dance: <----- They need to get a better dance smiley. :lol:

I envy u girl. :o That the kinda life I always wanted but I just was neva good at keepin in touch with folk and lotta my friends were just peeps from work so u know when we was hangin we was always talkin bout work. :rolleyes: :lol:

Ok, this thread is nearly two years old and I STILL lack any rhythm. My friends keep dragging me to the dance floor and try to get me to follow their lead but my awkward gangly ass keeps moving so totally out of sync. Its to the point where one of them outright refuses to dance with me.

So I think I can conclude that not only do I not have rhythm but I will never in my life have rhythm. So what do I do? Do I play up my lack of dancing skills and go for the cheap laughs or do I just sit down and not do a damn thing. Either way, I suck.

Anyone can dance, all you need is a little confidence. You'll never be able to dance if you're too embarrassed to!

I'm not a very good dancer either, but who really cares? All that matters is if you have fun.

I know but I just find it all so silly and arbitrary.

My friends keep trying to give me confidence and show me what to do but I just find myself laughing at the whole thing. At this point though I feel like I have to learn so my friends efforts aren't in vein.

Either that or I can just remain on the sidelines making fun of everyone else.

I prefer bars but my friends prefer clubs so I cater to the majority. The bar that I went to with my friend back home had a few of the type that you mentioned and it was sad. The bad thing is that that makes average looking girls hot by comparison and you make bad decisions.

I have no musical talent whatsoever, although I was in chorus in the third grade.

yeah, jersey is infamous for those type of girls, esp north jersey.

i got dragged to a few clubs over the summer. my favorite one thou, is the sawmill in seaside heights. yeah, yeah, nasty town. but upstairs in a club/dancefloor and downstairs is a huge bar with yummy pizza and LCD screens everywhere. i like it cos i can go there with friends and sneak downstairs. it's very rare that i dance. i have to be completely trashed, and even then, i will only dance with girls. i usually just sit at the bar by myself cos it's impossible to actually have a conversation with someone in a club.

maybe you should try to pick up an instrument. it supposedly helps find the beat. or just take simple dance lessons. althou, that might not help cos all dancing is nowadays is dry humping vertically.

In spite of that, I still love North Jersey.

Haven't been to the Jersey Shore in years. Went there a few times as a kid and that was enough. I've never been a big beach fan (but am being forced to go to one July 4th weekend). But I like those kinds of clubs where there are different levels and you can go about your own way. They had a semi-decent one in Long Island that I went to last year.

I was thinking about dance lessons but I dont' think that would help too much especially with the cost. I think I'm just going to sit it out more often than not.

sitting it out - is that really an option? you do get labelled eventually.

aww your post made me laugh, in a good way. you're right about that banana smiley having some hot dance moves! i think pretty much everyone can dance, if they stop worrying about trying to dance a particular way. as for their being hope for straight white males, i'm sure there must be. if not you're not the only ones that can't dance. i'm a black female, and although i can dance decently, i never feel like i'm a great dancer but it can still be fun. i hate going out with people that don't want to dance, it's so boring. i'm in college and all people want to do is go to lame frat parties and stand around a keg it's so stupid. :(

I chaperoned my daughter and a few of her friends to an Nsync concert back in 2000 and I thought Justin had rhythm. He wasn't as good as Usher overall but he definitely had soul in his movement. I was surprised. :lol:

I know what you mean but eventhough I canít dance a lick, I still like going clubbing just to hear music I love played at high decibels. :D Out of courtesy to my friends (I donít wanna spoil their night by not dancing), I wander off alone and just take in the whole vibe of the club. Itís fun to watch everyone dancing, too. :)
