I Dance Because You Care: Leviathan 5 Donations Dance

Jeff VanderMeer • March 8th, 2011 @ 9:59 pm • News

Yes, I followed through on my promise to dance–an interpretative dance based on my story “The Third Bear”–because you donated over $1,000 to the Leviathan 5 translation fund in February. Damn you all! (No, not really–thanks, even though I look like a complete fool.)

Um, didn’t really mean to have a soundtrack in the background, but what you can hear is from Murder By Death’s latest, which you can buy here.

    Encore! Encore!

    (well, I hope you’ll sing a ballad with Sting next time, or something)

    Woo! American Carny Theme by MBD!

    Excellent. Ended strong!

  5. Harry Markov says:

    An interpretative dance! Hooray! My only complaint: too short. You needed to walz with the penguin. Use your props.

  6. Anne S says:

    Crazy! Very funny.

  7. Samuel S says:

    I wish all my favourite authors would do this! Excellent!

  8. Robert WaliÅ› says:

    Neat! But I’m still hoping for a slow dance with the penguin to Murder By Death’s “Spring Break 1899″ :P

    This will henceforth be known as the Vandertrot.

    Certainly required viewing for the added insight into the pathos of Seether’s existence! ;)

    (Even after three viewings, I still can’t believe you’re such a good sport! You’re a better man than I, Gunga Din – *tips cap*).

    It helped that we recorded it relatively late last night and therefore my normal self-consciousness had been neutralized by tiredness. LOL

  12. Andrew Cooper says:

    Jeff, you were born to dance.

  13. Paul Jessup says:

    Brilliant! *applauds*

  14. Steve Turner says:

    Yaaaay!! More!
    Scary in so many ways, but not because of the bear.
    good on you for making the effort, you are a man of your word.
    All the best,
    Steve T

    Jeff, we are forthwith going to raise money for dance lessons for you… ;) I bet you didn’t want to dance with the penguin because he always tries to lead…
