Boston Urban Ceilidh

January 10th, 2009
dance  [html]
On friday Julia and I went to the boston urban ceilidh at springstep. It was fun, but is always a strange dance. They generally have a different few opening bands each year; this year they had "in fine fettle" start, who have been playing for judy erickson's excellent "step lightly" english dances at springstep. Emerald and Hannika Cassle (sp?) called the final two sets, and while they tend to call the same thing each year and never call particularly exciting dances (example: whole set dance; 1s swing for as long as they feel like, then start stripping the willow down the set. Repeat with the new 1s as soon as the old ones are out of the way), the amazing (Laura Cortese!!) music was enough to make it really fun. And the simple dances meant that the never-danced-before people seemed to be having as good a time as the experienced dancers.

One Night Ultimate Werewolf

I really like One Night Ultimate Werewolf (ONUW), and recommend trying it out. The Daybreak expansion is also good (but I’d skip the later games in the series). App For those who’ve played a lot and wish the night took 20 seconds rather than a few minutes…
