Why I love zumba

Zumba demands you take up the room, grab more space for your limbs, stretch every muscle you've protected while living in a tiny cubicle. It demands you be noticed. If only by your tentative glances in the mirror.

And for those not sure, zumba is dance exercise. Between the pulsing salsa beats and mimicking the energized instructor, you only briefly notice your muscles burning and lungs gasping for breath. It combines fun and exercise...words not usually seen together.

Falling Skies—second season this June

I loved watching the first season of Falling Skies last summer. Yes, it's slightly overly intense drama, but it's an end of the world senario with survival realities and delightful explosions. This is Steven Spielberg's Hollywood special effects intertwined with a TV season's gritty and intriguing character development. Totally worth trying out.

...I'll admit to still slightly holding my breath though. I loved watching Lost until I realized the writers were most likely rolling dice with random words on them for plot development. I'm hesitantly optimistic that Falling Skies will have a story arch, and with any hope, take a cue from Asian dramas and actually have an ending. Writers, please listen: we want a good ending. Not a drawn out, stupid, you-killed-all-my-favorite-characters-and/or-changed-the-genre-so-eventually-got-cancelled ending. There's no shame in creating a good story and ending the show strong fourth season. As all other Hollywood writers have shown, you can still cash in by creating a prequel.

It's been a year and a bit since I've written here. Lots of things have happened which facebook makes easy to track, so I'll start by revisiting some things I love.
