1997 Talent Show



For a lady who claims to dislike house dance music, it's interesting to note that this is what Best and I danced to at our 7th or 8th grade talent show. Looking back, we were actually quite subversive for Catholic school students, and couldn't have chosen the furthest thing from a mainstream song to perform. I remember several details about this peculiar performance.

They didn't fade the music out the way I had planned toward the end of our show, rather it came to an abrupt stop. Needless to say, we weren't pleased. Our outfits consisted of the same thing we wore to the Magic Mountain class trip- Forever 21 tank tops with stripes across the bust, baggy jeans and shell toe Adidas. We included some of the announcer intro into the dance because we felt it created a nice build up effect. I could be completely lying though because I also remember vividly wanting to begin right before "Stand up put your hands to the skyyyyy..." Maybe that never happened.

It was between that song or Notorious B.I.G.'s "Hypnotize" which we thought was too "expected". Although when we got up there no one, including us, really knew what was going on. Upon finding it on YouTube about 13, 14 years later, yesterday, I couldn't stop giggling with disbelief. One week of recess, lunch and secret after school practices so that I could shake my head at the past with uncontrollable laughter today.

My photo
I'm an LA transplant now living in Brooklyn. I develop film projects by day, write at night, and have a dangerous predilection for vintage Robinson Golluber scarves- this blog serves as a tiny window to everything else I do when I'm not satisfying those first three passions. I'm trying to blog more and tweet less @annabelleqv. What about you?
