Somehow, Aloe Blacc can sing about an oppressive relationship â€“ as he does on Loving You Is Killing Me â€“ and still make me smile. You can’t watch this video and not smile. It’s impossible.
In an update on the album version of the song â€“ a little faster and a little tighter with a sprinkle of hand claps â€“ Blacc finds himself in a bit of a dance-off with one of the coolest kids I’ve ever seen. And if there was any doubt about that, his name is Baby Boogaloo and he has a Twitter page, on which he says he loves to “pop, lock & breakdance.” Do your thing, Baby Boogaloo.
Watch the video and then pick up Blacc’s standout album Good Things, which would be on a list of my favorite albums of 2010, if I ever got around to writing such a post.

Duuuude! This is amazing! Really like the up tempo version and his moves are killer (the kid that is)
I prefer novel writing. It just seems more poetic and real to the reader. I can imagine it better than if I am scripting it.
No, critically, a good way to put it to use is always to connect with local theatre groups, either neighborhood or schools. They tend to be more receptive to new functions. Then you can see your work performed, and learn from and refine it from there.
Jack from Blackish. Still the coolest kid. â˜ºï¸
