The Day I Spun Around

Last night I was part of a Vultron-like puppet master. We held people by strings and made them move around in rhythmic patterns to the beat of a drum. I didn't sound a war drum though certain people did attack the dance floor in quite vigorous ways. White people are scary.

I was brought into a junkie-like state where every three minutes I would need a fix of other people's joy. Seth and I would flip through pages of Rachael's songbooks to pick just that right song to continue the movement. The art required intensifying it at certain times, and bringing it down a little also. I was all about the intensifying. I wanted to just keep going up up up as Rachael braced me and suggested a dancing break. In an almost Frankenstein of Dance manner I screamed out: "We cannot let the people down!! Dance motherfuckers!!! Dance!! Don't Stop Til You Get Enough!! Mhuahaha!!"

Transitions beautiful as Scarlett Johanson had songs segueway from one highlight to another. It became the major drug-release moment of "Will they respond to this one or will they go for a bathroom break"? Last night I tried to keep people from peeing.

This was what happened on the wheelz of steel when I was pushing the buttons.

A few things...

Why didn't I notice that you moved to blogger? I've been in a daze recently. Welcome and all that.

I will have to be in attendance next time you DJ. There's nothing like a funky Dutchman at the helm of a couple of turn tables... or disc changers... or whatever.

And, yes. White people are scary. But I love you all regardless.
