Here's another one for the Internet Needs This file: a performance piece/how-to on the art of snapping with attitude from the 1990 documentary...thing, Tongues Untied. The movie is kind of a melting pot of performances like the one above, monologues, spoken word recitations and interviews (with minimal affectation, for a change), all attempting to sum up what it was like to be black and gay in America at the time it was made. It's definitely something. The above clip stands out as a highlight to the point that I can't believe it wasn't on YouTube before I uploaded it. There is a younger generation of sassy gay (and gay-friendly) men that is missing out on this important lesson. If a choreographed performance piece doesn't teach them, what will?
(Also check out the video in My hero section for another very brief clip from the film. I thought that one needed to stand on its own. If you don't feel like rolling your eyeballs up...you are reading the wrong post! But also, I'm putting it after the jump for your ease...)
