music Burt Bacharach (though only kinda) lyric Hal David
performance Debbie Shapiro Gravitte
A bizarre, disorienting, and unexpected arrangement. What is this even?
(ps: expect posts from basically this whole album come December)
OMG. Huge thank you to me2ism for having this on Tumblr. My mom had this CD and played it relentlessly when I was in middle and high school, and I just neeeeeded to hear this song RIGHT NOW—this particularly goofy version. It’s a hard one to find. :)
I’ve had to do this with some of mine now too. Especially the twins. How ridiculous is it that I have four LED hoops and yet I want MORE!? I want one larger one (for tha slow jams), one that’s got some different colors than what I’ve got (aqua/green/purple or blue/green/white), and some minis…
I love this photo. I feel gorgeous in this photo. And I love that it looks quiet and a bit serene even, but I was hooping in front of an audience of about 5,000+ people with a blaring cover band.

Just took one of these. Spent about 15 minutes moving around my living room in a hoop, trying to find the shortest songs in my playlist and see what came of it. “Fugue for Tinhors” was really amusing to hoop to.
Another of my submissions to HooperProblems. :) Patience new hoopers! It takes time and practice. You’ll get there.

Just found a photo of myself on F*ck Yeah Hooping. I think I posted this either on my Tilly Whirls website or on HoopCity. The photo on the left is the month I started hooping (Feb. 2011). The one on the right is six months later (Aug. 2011), after losing 25 pounds. I didn’t practice as much in the winter months so my weight loss is still at 25 pounds. But I imagine that might change now that the weather’s getting warmer again.
