    Aha! Tekken. Now I have a visual on capoeira, although I cannot pronounce it. Thanks!

    John

    I met John about 8 years ago through my best friend who was his highschool sweetie. He is a really funny and unique person (certainly not average!) and I am so excited to see how this all turns out for him! He can't say anything about the show unfortunately! Its just interesting and scary to find out how everything is edited together in the end!

    P.S. "Hi John's mom!"

    Hi Paul!

    I saw your pic on www.baumsquad.com. Yeah, I remembered that capoeira was on a video game but couldn't remember it, and I didn't know that they had a scene of it in Zoolander! I know they also have a scene of capoeira in the horrible scooby doo movie. Just a glimpse, but it's there. I'm totally hoping that John busts some moves on the show because that'd so impress her!! Any guy who can move like that is totally hotter than they were before!! So, are you proud of your bro being on Average Joe? Does everyone at your school know who your bro is? Well, be proud of him if you're not already. He's a total gem and I'm sure you are too!

    Here Lucy,
    This is from an article that our local newspaper did on our capoeira group. If you want to see the whole article, let me know and I'll send it to you. But it has a pronunciation of capoeira in it for you! It also gives people a pretty interesting description of what a capoeira gathering (roda - pronounced "hota") is like. - Talia

    Before DJs and turntables, people would breakdance to the beat of the berimbau.

    Of course, they didn't call it breakdancing. They were African slaves in Brazil, and their art was a game they called "capoeira" (pronounced capo-wera).

    They gathered in a circle and created a rhythm with drums, tambourines and a bowlike instrument called a berimbau. Two by two, they entered the circle, demonstrating a blend of dance, acrobatics and martial arts.

    It was a ritualistic secret among the slaves _ an energetic, communal release that also prepared them to fight. It was rebellion. So it was outlawed in Brazil until 1930.

    Capoeira landed in America, on the East Coast, in the 1970s, around when rap music and breakdancing were born. The art made its way to the South Bay about six years ago, and now it could be coming to a YMCA near you.

    Thanks, Chorona. That pretty much satisfies my curiosity.

    I saw an awesome dance group from Bahia perform in Atlanta. The perfomance included many different styles of South American native dance. They ended the performance by dancing and playing steel drums off the theater stage in a parade down the streets to a downtown park. I really enjoyed hanging out in the park watching them.

    He seems so familiar! I think he is one of the funniest, probably most sincere one on the show. How tall is he anyway? Thanks for your insights!

    As far as I know none of the Joes are being paid.

    I can only speak for Craig, but the guys are not being directed on this show. What you see is what you get!
