My Inner Lolita

Tuesday, August 12, 2008

I was 12 the first time I was seriously attracted to an older man. I had just seen White Nights, and fell in love with Mikhail Baryshnikov. And man, did I want to be a dancer! I wanted someone with his eyes and accent and body to hold me and dance with me the way he did in the opening sequence of that movie. And I wanted to dance to Say You, Say Me by Lionel Ritchie.

Misha's (I can call him that) grace, beauty and passion are legendary and unparalleled. He oozes sex appeal. I watched White Nights whenever it was on cable. The politics of the story was lost on me, but the dancing! The dancing was so moving. I am a fan of ballet (and Misha) because of that movie.

There's more August Movie Madness over at Jen's. (photo from here, movie sequence from You Tube)


  1. Oh my gosh, I totally loved him in that movie too! I love watching dancers. Thanks for the great post! By the way I love the look of your website:)

  2. So, I guess you were a fan when he was on Sex and the City? I'll have to check out this movie. Thanks for the recommendation and for playing along!

  3. Oh, tell me about it! I read Gelsey Kirkland's autobiography three times for all the trashy details of his life in the 70s.

    Got to meet him a few years back too. He's very short.

  4. I once had an erotic dream with Mikhail Baryshnikov as the leading man.

    It's amazing what I'll give up in someone's comment section, isn't it?
