FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE...

I watched a fantastic programme about Rudolf Nureyev the other night. (You can still see it on BBC iPlayer if you're in the UK.) And I love that he was apparently the first proper *star* to appear on the Muppet Show, opening the door to lots of others following suit. He definitely has a place at my fantasy dinner party.

Couldn't agree more. What a fantasy dinner party that would be. Having just recently read 'Dancer', Nureyev is also on my mind.

this is awesome on many levels-- but one of them is because the pig is obviously a trained ballet dancer, but is good at physical comedy as well. not very often you see the former willing to to the latter!
