No Excuses

The teeth can say nothing without the tongue...
Because your tongue is mine! Mine! MINE!

These are the closing lyrics to Violenza Domestica, by Mr Bungle, the 1980's experimental band from Eureka, California.  Some people seem to have taken said lyrics literally.

I am one of those people.

Would you like to be one of those people, too?  Would you like to be like me, to do everything I do?  If you're reading this blog, I can only assume you are intelligent enough to answer, "yes." 

Fair enough, but you're going to have some difficulty following in my footsteps, because for the next 72 hours, they will be choreographed.  If you haven't been at rehearsal, you're not going to know where to step.^   I know, I know.  You didn't know about rehearsals.  You weren't cast in this show.  You don't live in this city.  All standard excuses, but I'm not accepting them.  Because I could be making excuses, too.

I'm not a dancer.  My hips don't work.  I had never heard of Mr Bungle.

So let's both quit with the bullshit and just show up this Tuesday at Martyr's, all right?  I'll be there at 6:30, but the dancin' doesn't begin until 8.

"But I don't even know anything about this show . . ."

No.  If you are the first to click on the first link in this entry, you will win a FREE BEHIND THE SCENES SNEAK PREVIEW of the show.

"But I didn't get a personal invite to the show . . ." 

No.  If you are the first to click on this link, you will get your very own invite to the show!

"But I don't have any money."

No.  If you are the first to contact me, you will win a free ticket to the event.  And you will

Dance with me
I want to be your partner. 
Can't you see?

But I won't sing.  I'll leave that to Mr Bungle.*

^ First is the entrance looking all sexy-like (11 counts).  Then, there's the back-and-forth head thing  (5 counts).  Then there's the pose for 2 counts, followed by the middle couple spinning, followed by our spin.  Then, we tango (kind of) in every direction.  Then . . . You know what?  Just come Tuesday and try to follow along.
