addition to previous post

 

I had to stop in the middle and as the previous post was long and I didn’t want to loose it for various technological reasons (which either I don’t understand, or the techno doesn’t understand me, please see this as a SHORT continuation of the previous post : “He stuck his hookah,WHERE?”

Dancing was the theme if you remember.Arabic, Greek-Cypriot, Irish-Celtic, Turkish dancing with an actual hookah on his head.blubberauch

I have so many other dance videos I could show you, and wanted to end it with a few of these…

Now this will be quite heavy to dance with on your head, and dangerous to smoke. Brass. Brass is quite dangerous.

Nice looking though.

I showed various “ethnic” dancing. With narghilas on the head but mostly not. “Ethnic” is what is termed¬† loosly “not of my culture, or clique of friends, my inner circle”. Ethnic Arab belly dancing to a member of the vast and large 21 Arabb nations is not “ethnic”, but “Mine”.

So here goes folks, I am not going to spend much more time searching for videos, but as the previous post had to be sundered for sundry reasons (very small pun, yes?).

I now give you the Jewish version of ethnic dancing. (With more added Scots, Mexican)For many¬† this might be termed “ethnic”, but its what my hommies and I do at weddings.Dance, eat a bit, dance, drink a leh Chaim a bit and then with that fuel dance for around 3 hours. Its a great Deed, Mitzvah Commandment¬† to “Make the Newlywed Husband and Wife happy” by dancing before them, singing, music,¬† wild jokes an some amazing antics that you’ll see here by watching. These are Chabad Chasidim (Hasidim) of which I am, (that’s not a stable state of being, but a constant working effort! Mainly to Serve G-D, and to Serve G-D with Joy with all our mental¬†, emotional, spiritual and physical actions).

Here is the Yid’s Vid ! I think I see¬†one of my sons ¬†here in the wilder dance¬† scenes.This is New York, Brooklyn and I’m in Israel.

I’ll finish with a song from the famous Chasidic (Hasidic) singer Avraham Fried who I remember as a part time librarian 28 years back and is world famous¬† already 25 years. He is still a very modest person offstage!
