And They Are Still Dutty Wine’n

Posted by thelense on Wednesday, October 15, 2008

I remember when the Dutty Wine dance first came out. Or rather I remember when I first saw it. I was browsing through youtube one day in 2006 and saw a girl doing an odd dance. Now despite me finding the dance odd I still thought she looked hott doing it so I was like hmm maybe it has a song to go with it. Long story short Dutty Wine went on to become one of the biggest songs and dances on FAMU campus Fall of 2006. Anywhere and everywhere you looked or didn’t look there was a contest going on. It was huge, it was everywhere, it was great. Apparently its making a resurgence on campus’s across the nation. Last Set Friday (the 10th) featured a sporadic Dutty Wine battle. I believe the girls dancing are in Kollage (FSU Dance Group). Of course I had my camera and the rest is history.

Note: The beat to the song is still as fiyah as ever though!

Rattlers…. Orange and Green!

Posted by thelense on Sunday, October 5, 2008

I like this chant/song, for some reason it gets me hype. I don’t think they play it that often though, because I didn’t even recognize it at first. But maybe that is my shortcoming?

Rattlers Orange and Green

I see you junior class!

“Whatever You Like” FAMU edition!

Posted by thelense on Sunday, October 5, 2008

It is my opinion that the FAMU Marching 100 can play any and everything. I think the Marching 100 could play the phone book and it would sound on point. They played “Whatever You Like” at the game and all the TI fans and random people went nuts!

Whatever You Like

Soulja Boy is playing on the radio and um, what that has to do wtih this post I am not sure. But imma guess since TI and Soulja Boy are both from Atlanta it all correlates? Okay its late. Dont mind me.

Rattlers SOS At Football Game

Posted by thelense on Sunday, October 5, 2008

If you didn’t graduate from FAMU or currently attend FAMU you may not know what the heck i’m talking about in this post. But that gives you even more of a reason to…

A. Send your kid to FAMU if you couldn’t attend

B. Attend if you can!

That way you can know what an SOS is and how you do it. Until then well if you don’t know you better ask somebody!

FAMU SOS

Note: Soultrain would not approve of anyone who doesn’t know this dance.

Boys of Poison Perform at FAMU Birthday Jam

Boys of Poison

Light Bulb Moment: Me and my homegurl Nykon have come to the conclusion that human beings especially black ones get excited as hell when they see a big person dancing. Even though big people are just as good at dancing as skinny people. Everyone just loves to root for the big dancer killing it!

Dancing Moms Support Obama

Posted by thelense on Sunday, September 28, 2008

While the crowd prepared to hear from Jill Biden and Michelle Obama, the Rickards High School band kept us entertained. But while everyone else was watching the band I noticed this woman getting down to the music the band was playing. She was hitting the dance moves and just having a good time. I dont know if she is a mother or not but I imagined her to be a Dancing Mom For Obama lol.

I guess this is dancing parents for Obama because the dad holding the baby in the video was getting funky with it too!

Rickards High School Fills In For Marching 100

Posted by thelense on Sunday, September 28, 2008

The Richards High School band had to fill in for the Marching 100 toay. The high school band was given the task of warming up the crow for the arrival of Future First Lady Michelle Obama. I mus say the high school ban really showed up and showed out. I really believe their band director is a former member of the Marching 100 because the band really bought it. From SOS to Damaged to Got To Be Real to Spolight the band played a slew of hits that kept the energetic crowd on its feet!

Job well done to Rickards High for holding it down!
