Scoble posted a link to BBD's video of Poison on Holly's fb wall and it reminded me about that time I was trying to be a dancer in Vegas. Have I told you all that story yet?
Not that I recall. Do tell, please! ‎- Kirsten
I need to hear this story. ‎- k8s
So here I am trying to project a sense of calm detachment and mild interest whilst inside I'm all "I KNEW IT!!!!" ‎- MoTO Babycakes
Settled in with a glass of wine and so ready for a story ‎- jsholman
There was a choreographer who had a slot at the Shark Club who was looking to put together a group. He asked if I would be interested. I was so in. So, so in. ‎- orgmonkey
Over the summer four of us, and him, would meet, and we'd work through choreography that he developed, to Poison. ‎- orgmonkey
After about a month of nightly practice we were getting somewhere, it was looking SHARP. ‎- orgmonkey
But then one time I turned up to our practice area ahead of schedule and got held up (knife, I was fine). It made me reconsider what I wanted out of life, as stressful situations like that do. ‎- orgmonkey
So I dropped out of the group. ‎- orgmonkey
But to this day, when I hear that opening sequence of Poison I kind of can't help but do the choreography. ‎- orgmonkey
~fin~ ‎- orgmonkey
Understandably so. Also, wow. So did you head directly onto your current career path? ‎- MoTO Babycakes
Nah, I finished college in fine arts (printmaking), then grad school in photography, and then over to librarianship. ‎- orgmonkey
Dang. You did the damn thing. ‎- MoTO Babycakes
Wow. Now that's a story. Also this ^^^ ‎- jsholman
