*tone: gentle, friendly, empathetic musing*

For what it’s worth, I upvoted all your comments in this thread. I understand what you’re trying to say. Something that you *meant* to be a flippant comment about an era of music was misinterpreted to mean you were idealizing something else entirely.

That’s often my issue with commenting on reddit (and partly why I have this “novelty”, to help circumvent misunderstandings) — unless you go out of your way to reassure people that you *don’t* mean all possible tangentially-related topics, someone may inevitably twist what you say and accuse you of meaning something totally different.

*tone: friendly, a touch nonchalant*

And to respond to your original comment, because I think that’s a conversation worth having: I totally agree with you on music and dance of then versus now. I love “oldschool” music and dance so much more than anything modern. (And yes, I’m making sweeping generalizations that aren’t meant to be taken as absolutes.) It makes me happy to see dances like this, where people have to really practice and learn the particular dance to get good at it.

Of course there are good things about our modern social dancing, which is much more freeform; but I have a lot of respect for people who can dance with a partner like this. It’s so much fun to watch!
