Influential Media, Part I

I am pretty sure that when I saw West Side Story for the first time, it was the first time I had seen "dance" in any formal or significant way. I am also pretty sure that this is the first time I saw "love" and "romance" portrayed.

So the dance influence has served me well. Jerome Robbins was the man. I am not so sure about the "love" part. I still think the world should fuzz out while I lock eyes with an impossibly unattainable man across the room, and then we will dance a bit, and fall madly in love, until he, well ... you know the end. Not a good romantic imprint.

But the dance imprint, check it out. It remains 100% awesome.
