1: a persistent disturbing preoccupation with an often unreasonable idea or feeling.
~ Webster's online dictionary
Well, I must say I don't find this definition of obsession very flattering at all! In fact I'm quite offended! Do you guys think obsession is disturbing or unreasonable? Yeah...me neither.
I don't find my adorable friend JennyKate's obsession with Edward at all disturbing, or unreasonable. Okay, she did get a Twilight tattoo...hmmm.
And what about my dear friend Tanielle? Just because she vacuums a minimum of once a day, often twice, does that make her disturbing or unreasonable? Of course she has gone through 6 vacuums in her 6 1/2 years of marriage....hmmm.
And my obsession with NKOTB is in no way disturbing or unreasonable, right? I mean just because I did a weekly video countdown to their Vegas show (which I had to miss in the end!), c'mon...I was just copying my fab friend Amanda's video countdown to So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD)!
That brings me to my current obsession. I kind of have obsession ADD....I have multiple obsessions, none of them ever leave, but I kind of rotate through them depending on what's goin' on in my life! With the new amazing season of SYTYCD, my obsession with this guy has been rekindled:
Aside from the late Michael Jackson, I don't know that there ever has been, or ever will be, a man as brilliant on the dance floor as Wade Robson.
By the age of 5, he was performing professionally. By age 12 he was teaching dance classes in Hollywood. He received his first professional chorography job at 14. By the age of 16 he was choreographing music videos and commercials for the likes of Britney Spears, and *N Sync. He also became the director of both Britney, and *N Sync's world tours at 16.
He has been a judge and choreographer on SYTYCD, and has won multiple Emmies for his work. I have barely scratched the surface here with this post, you can look him up to see the looooong list of his amazing accomplishments. All this and the guy is only 27 years old!
I'm hookin' you up with some of my favorite Wade youtube videos. there are lots of great dancers, and some talented choreographers out there...but the way Wade moves his body is magical, almost supernatural! Even when compared to the other dancers he's performing with. Have I said brilliant, or genius yet?
Since some of them are super short, and I can't decide which I love best, there's gonna be a bunch...just watch whatever you want from the selection! I highly recommend maximizing the video and watching it full screen!
First up, Wade's Power Commercial to promote his new dance shoe.
Here's Wade in the studio... the other dancers pale incomparison.
One of Wade's award winning numbers, he choreographed this piece for Season 2 of SYTYD, and did a surprise guest perfomance in this encore edition. He's the one at the head of the stairs, with the long white sleeves, and buttoned up brown vest.
The Hummingbird and The Fl0wer. This choreography also won an Emmy.
This is just a fun compliation of some of Wade's fabulous work, choreography, performances and show's he's directed.
