Yet Another Blog Post About Dead People

(Wow, I am a HIT at parties)

Today's blog post is brought to you by the letters W, T, and F.

Pina Bausch died today. What the--? Are you serious? I told you, famous people, quit dying already.

(That said, it was pointed out to me that this was probably my fault, since my last post was titled "Rocks fall, everyone dies." Oh, whatever.)

Anyway, in honor of Pina Bausch/because I am a gigantic fan of Le Sacre du Printemps, let's watch a movie in her honor:

(Yay, awesome)

Also: my old dance company did a project that was loosely inspired by her Fur die Kinder von Gestern, Heute und Morgen. I don't have a copy of the video, but I assure you that it was both awesome and amazingly fun.

There's also this great video from dancemedia.com. Oh, and guess what? That music that they're dancing to at the very beginning? That was the music for my Caterpillar dance. Whee! And, while you're at it: Here's a great story about Pina from Guardian.co.uk.

Hey... remember how yesterday, I blogged about a possible Michael Jackson tribute? Well, it's going to take place this Thursday (July 2nd-- as in, two days from now) at Discovery Green Park from 6-8pm. My very-awesome friend and colleague LP will be teaching the "Thriller" dance. It's sponsored by Discovery Green, Dance Houston, DSH, and A Certain Dance Company that A Certain Blogger happens to perform with. If you live in Houston and are cool, I expect you to be there. Come on, it'll be fun!

That's all I have for today, folks; and I'm off to bed. I would appreciate it if nobody else died between today and tomorrow. Thanks!
