Bowie Ballads

Heyyyy everyone! Guess what?
That’s right, I’m back at Yale.  For my senior year. Ah, the inexorable passage of time.

Is that an unfair description? It seems accurate to me, but somehow John Oliver thought ‘foreplay with horse’ was a credible way to sum up dressage and I just… no.
Dressage is dancing with horses! And if all dancing is foreplay then I’m fucked, what with the hip hop, jazz, burlesque, competitive ballroom, and all. Continue reading “Les jeux olympiques”
