Hmmm. I didn't see that one coming.
 
2008-12-12 10:08:58 AM
Uh, no. Stevie would be lucky because he wouldn't have to watch it.
 
2008-12-12 10:13:12 AM
Still not interested
 
2008-12-12 10:31:33 AM
I wouldn't watch that drivel even if Ron Santo were competing!

She won't be on next season.

I only watch it for Kym Johnson.

Well, lessee here. He's not only blind, but he's old. I'm thinking he's doing this for the excuse to grope some young dancer, which is generally a good thing and something I wish him the best of luck at.

He'll probably break a hip or some crap, though.

I don't see it happening.

I wonder if they make these in braille.

On another note, the only song he'd be able to dance to would be the Hokey Pokey, or potentially the Time Warp.

That's shiat ain't funny muthafarker. That's just terrible man. Subby, Yo mamma has a wooden leg with a kickstand muthafarker. Stevie Wonder is a musical genius.

Okay, they have had:
the religious sect (Marie Osmond)
the old person (Love you Cloris)
the deaf person (waves to Marlee)
the one legged (the former Mrs. McCartney)
the gay (but why wasn't Lance partnered with one of the guys?).

What other protected groups are left other than the blind?
 
2008-12-12 12:21:10 PM
Funny thing is, we know a couple in their 60s where the husband is blind, but one of their favorite hobbies is ballroom dancing. They are pretty good as long as the dance floor isn't too crowded.
 
2008-12-12 12:23:30 PM
Just say NO to competition shows. American Idol, Dancing With The Stars, So You Think You Can Dance, America's Got Talent, etc. ALL of them are for the mundane.

Have some dignity. Don't be a pawn. Demand SCRIPTED shows that don't feature washed-up stars from the 80s, or B-listers from the 90s.

I watch that show with my wife. Only because I can't get her to watch real pron with me.

Not too long ago, some friends and I were discussing great dead young comedians... I named Eddie Murphy.

For some strange reason, I would think Stevie Wonder would have a blast on the show.

K3rmy: For some strange reason, I would think Stevie Wonder would have a blast on the show.

Really? Because if I was blind, I'd do shiat like this all the time, just to mess with people. Plus, the number of physical things you can do safely while blind are somewhat limited (there are some dances you couldn't do, but most of ballroom has contact so he should even be able to lead).

Alternately: at least he's an actual celebrity instead of some minor ex-athlete no one's heard of.
 
2008-12-12 12:47:15 PM
...or so he's been told.
 
2008-12-12 12:47:35 PM
so he has to take his shoes off to go braille then?

First, I think Stevie Wonder would do better than Jerry Springer.

It's a wide open dance floor, with no obstacles. And his partner wouldn't be blind, so she would be able to 'lead'.

Second, Eddie Murphy doing the Honeymooners bit. The language is NSFW, but just the word "Norton!"...

/Half!

Came for pics of Edyta. Was saddened when there were none.

/What, no Edyta love?

Even blind, he'll find a way to give his dance partner Herpes.

/You can feel it all oooooooover.
 
2008-12-12 01:01:59 PM
I envision him getting separated from his dancing partner and starting to Tango with Tom Bergeron.
 
2008-12-12 01:04:18 PM
Ahhhh... gorgor. I don't care what they think of you. You make me lol...

the submission is dumb, why do people keep repeating it?

it's like how deaf people make great lifeguards. they're not distracted by what is heard. they don't have to filter out all the fake 'i need help' noise. they pay more attention to what can be seen.

i would assume blind people would be great dancers. it's all about rhythm, not about what you can see. they concentrate on what's important (the beat). i also assume the deaf can also be great dancers, if they can 'feel' the rhythm, right?

Beatle_Matt: Hmmm. I didn't see that one coming.

Well, the writing was on the wall.
 
2008-12-12 01:15:52 PM
I see !
 
2008-12-12 01:16:02 PM
I wouldn't watch that show if the end of every episode was Salma Hayek and Monica Belluci double penetrating Jennifer Tilly with double-headed dildos.
 
2008-12-12 01:17:27 PM
Is this post about the blinds?

Hm, I'd watch that.
