krumping 101

No blogging tonight. I threw my back out krumping.

OK, that was a joke. I don’t krump. Actually, I don’t do any “clown dancing.”

Truth be told, for the most part, I just sit still and stare out the window when I have my clown makeup on. (It runs when I sweat, so I try to keep the activity down.)

As for krumping, I just learned about it this morning from my friend, Dave. (I think he’s taking an introductory class at his local community college.) Now, I’m just cruising around the net, looking for video documentation of krumping battles and wondering how I might be able to edit myself into a few of them. (note to self: As soon as possible, enroll Clementine in a blue screen course.)

    Apple has a larger, longer version of the trailer.

    According to the sign outside, the bowling alley arond the corner from me now has “white krumping” leagues on Tuesday nights.

    I always get krumping confused with noodling.

    I bet you could kill a hell of a lot of fish krumping underwater.

    OK, that is the most bad assest thing I have ever seen. Move over Rosie Perez “Do the Right Thing” prologue, “Drumline”, and “The Warriors”. To bad I’m fucking 40!

    So, shall we let him krump in the upcoming competition? I get the sense that he’s damned good.

    …If anyone does call Montay, do me a favor and let me know how the conversation goes.

    FYI… Area code 562 is Los Angeles.

    And, if you do call Montay, let him know that we’re only looking for old school clown krumpers for our competition.

    I just did a reverse lookup and it looks as though the number is registered to:

    McGuire, Claricamore
    13801 Paramount Blvd, Apt BI
    Paramount, CA 90723-2696

    I guess, now that we have an address, we could send a formal Krump-Off ’06 application… Or a letter telling Montay that we’ve heard a lot about his skillz… Or, better yet, we could just all send nice letters of encouragment.

    “Keep on Krumping, Montay.”
