The Right Stuff

While we all eagerly await Teejay's New Kids on the Block concert review, the G:TB editorial staff wants to make sure our readers are prepared to properly celebrate. Thanks to the always-helpful folks at WikiHow, a few tips on properly breaking it down:

How to Do the 6 Step (Breakdancing)

  1. From a pushup position, extend right leg under left. Lean on the outside of your right shoe. Take your left hand off the floor.
  2. Put your right leg over your left leg (around your left knee).
  3. Go into the crab position. Bring your right leg out from behind your left leg. Plant your right foot down next to your left foot (shoulder width apart). Put your left hand on the floor behind you.
  4. Bring your left leg behind your right leg (around your left knee). Lean on the outside of your left shoe. Lift your right hand up.
  5. Move your right leg behind you.
  6. Extend your left leg back and put your right hand down, going into a pushup position again.


    Do everything as above except that instead of going into the crab position, put only your right hand on the floor behind you (not both). When you go to the next step, you quickly switch your hands (lift your right hand off the floor, put your left hand down as you're moving your legs).

The helpful WikiHowers would also note that proper stretching is critical to the success of this move.

I guarantee one of you knows how to do this. My money's on Zoltan.

I carry cardboard and a windbreaker with me at all times. I had my office floor replaced with linoleum too. I'm old now so I mostly just do the wop.

My entire break-dancing repertoire consists of this:

Pop Rock -> Worm

I've performed it a couple times at weddings, when I am in the sweet spot* of drunkennes.

*Too drunk to care that you're doing a worm at a reception and wallowing on a dirty dance-floor in a suit and tie, yet sober enough to maintain the coordination to (somewhat) pull it off without bruising a chin and/or kicking a female on/near the dance floor.

When the hell were you ever in the sweet spot of drunkenness? I've seen you drunk a million times. It's like a light switch - you go from sober to hooligan with no detectable sweet spot inbetween.

Everybody who's played drunken pool knows that sweet spot....and how your coordination falls off a cliff after those fleeting moments.

That's me in a darts game. When I'm 5 or 6 beers in, I am often unbeatable. Unfortunately, most of the time I cruise through those beers to 7, 8, and 9, and pretty soon I am missing the board.
