Ok, ok, ok!!
I've been on a slightly verbose trip the past few days, so let me lighten the atmosphere by sharing this very particular aspiration of mine...
If all I achieve this year is to learn and replicate this routine* in it's entirety, I will be beyond satisfied with myself.
If you are not a particular fan of Mrs Jay-Z (and I count myself amongst this number) then you may be quick to navigate away from this page. Don't. Give the dance a chance my friend. Give it two perhaps. There is truly something for everyone in here.
I would like to point out that the moves displayed at 1:32 are particularly spectacular and impressive.
Sometimes, just sometimes, pop music is all that will really do.
*Clearly I could go on at some length about my conflicted feelings regarding the lyrics - commodified version of commitment and so on and so forth - but in this case, I'm just going to let it all go and DANCE. And if you think for a moment that I am not going to be bopping around this room as soon as this is posted, then you would be sadly mistaken.
