Dancing Fool (Well, half right at any rate...) [May. 15th, 2004|08:19 pm]

Just before I typed this entry, I was doing something I almost never do...

I was dancing.

"Mama Told Me Not to Come" by Three Dog Night (from the Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas soundtrack, hence the userpic) came on iTunes, and I just had to get up and then...get down. Why I was struck by the dancing mood, I have no idea, since my life is fairly crappy right now (more details on that later tonight, in all likelihood...).

Unfortunately for me (and for anyone who is ever forced to watch me dance), my moves are somewhat stuck in the 70s. That's right, all of my dancing moves were learned from Saturday Night Fever, Staying Alive, and old episodes of Dance Fever.

I really was born 15 years too late...

Paul DiFilippo has a short story titled "Mama Told Me Not To Come" in this collection. It's such a good story that it made me feel even better about the song, if that makes any sense. In fact, that was a selling point for the abovementioned soundtrack for me.

I understand. That's much like the way that Sports Night affected my appreciation of the song "Eli's Coming", also by Three Dog Night...
