dance floor politics

a la spliff politics from the movie human traffic, i decided to adopt the idea and adapt it to the dance floor. How many times have you been rippin the dance floor only to have someone come by, stand in front of you, while you wonder if this person is a dog and you have a treat in your pocket, or better yet a sketcher and you have an 'e' in your pocket.
or better yet you are out there ripping it like it's no one's business, ofcourse there is a sweet lady you are persuing or courting, or man for you ladies, and then they plop down in the middle just standing there, i don't get why people do that. if your going to get in the middle of it you better be ripping it just as hard or better yet harder.
it is by far the biggest peeve of mine while at the club, besides ofcourse the mobs that would sit down in the middle of the dance floor at big parties.
as far as these people go, what do you do, do you give them the ever so famous dancing elbow, or do simply state, 'bro, if your going to be here ya better rip it', or do you simply say get the fuck out of my way.

peace out,

nate!

i usually bust out my gat and fire a couple of warning shots in the air... that pretty much clears the room out and im free to continue ripping it up

I prefer the light elbow tap to the back or head area depending on the individual’s height. When they look back gracefully let them know they are in your space.

I spin around with my arms out doing a human helicopter. I try to knock out as many people as I can before I fall over from being dizzy.

Here's my contribution to the politics of dancing...

No fuckin glow sticks (or anything else for that matter) on strings! They are far too dangerous....and a big waste of dancing space if you ask me.

The politics of ooo feeling good
The politics of moving
Is this message understood?


Sometimes I do this dance that involves throwing my 'bows up to take out people in my way, but I've been called on it too many times.

I hate it when i'm dancing and having a good time and some guy will come up and start asking me silly questions. I don't mind if strangers come up and talk to me, but not when i'm in my dance zone i like to be left alone. Oh well, i think i piss people off too cause sometimes i step on peoples feet by mistake and don't notice.

i guess that is what you get for looking good and having fun. an easy target for a sketcher!

It used to be there was an unspoken understanding about respecting ppl's space, included pestering ppl while they were dancing.
That seems to have almost disappeared along with the words "sorry" when ppl bump into you/step on feet.

Party manners aren't what they used to be.

At your height, you don't need to lift your 'bows too high to bag a guy.

I'm the biggest target. I was at gov't in the Charlies part 2 weekends ago and I just wanted to dance to the funky breaks i hadn't heard in so long. This Russian exhange student kept talkin to me for about an hour. He was so sweet and I could barely make out what he was saying so I just smiled and nodded. I didn't have the heart to try and dance away from him.

man_slut rocks. he once tapped someone, who had planted themselves right in front of me and was inching his way backwards, on the shoulder, and said "excuse me, you are taking my friend's space. do you mind?"
best dancing buddy ever!
