Which makes this dance video made by my future-sister-in-law’s brother extra super special. And, given this site’s affinity for dance videos, I feel compelled to put it up.

This is the single finest piece of work I have ever done. Never again shall I reach such dizzying heights or experience the rush of seeing something so beautiful pour forth from my fingers. This is it. This is the last video I will ever edit in my life. I am putting down the proverbial axe and walking away. There is nothing else for me to gain here.
First you must watch the utterly insipid inspiration here. Go ahead.
Now you can watch Sarah’s take on the video.
I think the best way to describe it is just to quote her description.
Snazzy and uncomfortable in her own crappy clothes, Sarah is ready to get drunk with her friends and maybe hook up with a dude, and hopefully remember it this time. Almost ready to go, she’s stares at you through the camera lense and intensely dances to the best song ever written.
SUPER FANCY YOUTUBE
I have an interesting relationship with dance. As a thing to do, I love it. Unabashedly so. If you and I have not gone dancing together, we should, because it’s fucking awesome and fun and great exercise and all that shit. As an art form, I’ve never really been able to get into it, particularly with interpretive dance. I just don’t get it at all. I’ve tried, oh lord how I’ve tried, but it’s just not for me. Anyone out there willing to prove me wrong? I’d be happy to learn.
Girl Walk // All Day is a preview of a film that combines my love of dancing with a presentation of dance on the State Island ferry and terminal and the music of Girl Talk
Here’s what the creators say about it.
What is Girl Walk // All Day?
We’re making an epic, 71-minute dance music video set to All Day, the new album by mash-up musician Girl Talk (aka Gregg Gillis). The idea behind Girl Walk // All Day emerged from our desire to expand the boundaries around the idea of the traditional music video, which usually spans the length of a single track. This album-length piece will feature a talented group of dancers across a range of public and private spaces around New York City, turning the city’s sidewalks and obstacles into part of an evolving improvisational dance routine.
The piece will be available for free online in short, serialized segments and we also plan to screen the full-length film in public spaces, and at festivals, concerts, parties, and beyond, inspiring an interactive viewing experience that will evolve into a series of dance parties around the globe.
I’m totally in love with it. It is just great. I only wish I could be one of the dancers. I feel confident that I could do this. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this little preview of what is going to become a 70 minute film so much that I nearly sent them funds on their kickstarter project. The only reason I didn’t is because they’re already at double their goal with 38 days left for donations.
Check this shit out. I can’t wait to see the finished thing. If you feel compelled, kick them a few bucks. I might end up doing so.
Note to self: start an electro dance band so you can make a music video where you dance with really hot chicks. I suspect that it’s actually a double doing most of the dancing, but one can always dream, right? Right now I’m dreaming about fried chicken and a beer. Shit, what was I talking about again?
