Here’s another musical posting! The latest online craze is the Harlem Shake, where people record (mostly) 30-second clips of the dance. It always starts with one lone head-geared dancer amongst a sea of normalcy and switches quickly to a room full of movers and shakers. I can’t help but smile! The video above is one of the tamer workplace versions, but some get pretty wild and/or funny.
For me, this is a perfect opportunity to reflect on:
—the positive; what makes people happy, if only for a brief moment, but has a lasting effect afterwards.
—the awe of a worldwide sense of community; these videos were created in places where anyone had a video camera. On a small scale, it builds camaraderie amongst the people in each video. On a grand scale, it’s a shared positive experience amongst strangers who otherwise may not have things in common. Sure beats war.
How did I not know about this show earlier?! By total accident, I happened upon this while browsing my cable’s on demand. I watched the one with Judd Apatow and Lena Dunham, and now I want to watch all the others in all 6 seasons. Here’s their description: ”Each half-hour episode of the innovative six-part series, which will air on Sundance Channel, pairs two creative visionaries from different fields who come together to discuss their lives, influences, passions and creative processes.” Right up my alley. It inspires me to think about all the great collaborative relationships I’ve had in my life that has brought me to this point, and excites me to think about collaborations yet to come.
