(I was going to write dialogue for these repeating vignettes - some sort of art doll Kibuki theatre - but I just couldn't do it. These dolls got their mojo workin' and are full of such palpable juju that I don't think I could touch one of them. Yesterday I snapped a Barbie's knees - they cracked audibly, like knuckles - and that was freaky enough.)
The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins, as sung by our favorite vocalist of the '60s. . .the only man besides Sonny Bono (and maybe Illya Kuryakin) who can really rock those bangs.
This is a unique form of choreography known as the Bilbo Bop.
"He fought with the dragons! He fought with the trolls!" This involved someone throwing some kind of jumpsuit up in the air.
Yes! They're here. Last night my son showed me how to convert
YouTube videos into gifs. After much fiddling around on a site called Y2gif, I came up with these, excerpts from one of my favorite videos.
This is only the beginning. . .
Go, Lauren, Go! The original Gangnam Girl appears on the Jumbotron at the Canucks Superskills 2013. Love that bouncy pompom (and the bouncy hair!).
In this version, Daddy sees them on the screen and Lauren's glee increases. Daddy happens to be my son Jeff.
