Guilty Pleasures

The easiest thing about PCP is diving into some of my guilty pleasures... of which I have so many. Like listening to music I usually would be embarrassed to have on my ipod, like the new Brittany Spears album, awesome beats for working out.

I don't watch much TV at all, in fact I limit myself to 1 night a week, every Thursday I go to my Mom's house (because I don't have cable) to watch my stories, the office, big love, flight of the conchords, and 30 rock. Some how weeks ago after 30 rock I was just flipping channels and came across America's Best Dance Crew on mtv, at first I thought it was a dance American idol (and I hate American Idol so much that I refuse to even be in the same room when someone is watching it). I was wrong, well kinda wrong, it is a similar set up, but the dancing was so cool that it actually got me out of my seat and now i'm hooked. I watched it almost every week this season. It was action packed and featured several all girl crews. My favorite was the Beatfreakz. They often talked about how hard the have to work out just so they can do the break dancing moves as well as the guys. Every week of this show I was inspired to get up and move with the music (and I can assure you that it looked seriously embarrassing) because of all the groups' energy. Here is the full compilation of the Beatfreakz dancing on the show, I couldn't find a shorter one but it's worth skimming through to see some of their stunts.

Last night was the season finale and they were in the top 2, but ended up losing to quest crew :(

Sounds like a new hobby coming on?

Wow that was amazing. I used to work out at a gym that had a B-boy crew who would come in and work out together, and they did these dynamic stretches that looked crazy painful. Glad to see they work out together!
