It’s Saturday morning, which means that I have one empty email inbox and another filled mostly with messages from myself. Most of these have either the subject line “Tweet forwarded by @trailerpilot,” which are shares from my phone’s TweetDeck app; or are in an ongoing, very long thread titled “Linkage” which, as you might guess, contains links.
This Saturday’s harvest is particularly robust and, in lieu of flooding Twitter or Facebook with its crop, here we are at Ye Olde Trailerpilot Dot Com.
Select Internet I Emailed to Myself Between January 30 and February 3, 2012
This BuzzFeed post about Nancy Upton, who punk’d an American Apparel model search.
Via @magickaleva, I checked out the listing for I’m Nobody! Who are You? at New York Live Arts. Carla Peterson is one of four panelists at Monday’s Chicago Dancemakers Forum Salon.
@pointe_magazine and many others shared this Joan Acocella piece about onstage injuries in ballet, occasioned by Jennie Somogyi’s unfortunate Achilles tear during Polyphonia on January 28.
@Dance_Teacher shared this Daily Herald article about this month’s flamenco festival at North Central College.
Research for an item about Joffrey: Mavericks of American Dance led me to this 1989 article in The Los Angeles Times about Tina LeBlanc and Eddie Stierle guesting in classics at Ballet Pacifica.
I realized I had completely forgotten about Ballet Pacifica.
I don’t remember where it came from but this Galleycat post about self-publishing is interesting.
I emailed myself a “Shit [person type, plural] Say” video for the last time, probably; and a Dance Magazine feature about real-life couples who perform together.
On Wednesday, there was an impromptu memorial Soul Train line in Wicker Park, in memory of the show’s creator and host, Don Cornelius, found dead earlier that day. I attended the line and danced down it myself a few times and, on Thursday, emailed myself links to photos and stories about the tribute that I found. Kristie Kahns, whose photos I often publish in Time Out Chicago, posted her images on Facebook here. Chicagoist published a few sepia-toned snaps and a video. The RedEye posted eight pictures. I’m sure there are more; feel free to drop ’em in the comments.
I sent myself this review of Margaret Jenkins Dance Company’s Light Moves, whose Chicago premiere I preview in next week’s Time Out Chicago.
Also of unknown origin but pretty great are these posters of well-known dances from television and film.
And now I have two empty email inboxes. Time for lunch.
