Sarah Dances – “Monster” (feat. SJ and Corinney-binny), also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY SJ & THE BLACK LASER!!!

Today is SJ’s fifth birthday!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY SJ!! Which means it is ALSO The Black Laser’s 5th Birthday!!! Happy birthday, The Black Laser!!!!!

What better way to celebrate than with yet another Sarah Dances, this time featuring the birthday girl and he sister? You’re right. There is no better way. We shot this bad boy WAY back in May, but for this reason and that, I didn’t get around to finishing it until September. Oops! But, the delay makes it a perfect way to celebrate this momentous occasion.



Happy 4th birthday, The Black Laser! And happy 4th birthday to Sienna!

As I have mentioned in the past, November 11th is The Black Laser’s birthday. It is also the birthday of my darling niece SJ. So, happy birthday to the both of us.

First, things have been slow here for the last few months. I regret this, but sometimes life is in the way and things get held up, you know? Let’s make this coming year a good one for The Black Laser.

Second, SJ, I am sorry I didn’t get to see you recently, but our trip home was cancelled because of a hurricane and it was out of our hands. Fortunately, we were credited the flight so we will be back in February, which is really not so long from now. I do understand, however, that as a four year old four months is an unbelievably long period. I implore you to be patient.

What are you going to do to celebrate The Black Laser’s fourth birthday? I know what I am going to do: I am going to work and then go home and fall asleep. I’m a class act, ladies and gentlemen.

Total Ghost’s “Happy Birthday”

I’ll let you all in on a little secret: I absolutely loathe the happy birthday song. Every time I hear it I cringe and want to crawl into the darkest, dankest hole imaginable and die a million painful deaths only to be reborn each time to live in utter agony again until the next moment I am forced to hear the happy birthday song at which point the cycle repeats and repeats and repeats as if some hellish ouroboros of pain. It is the most embarrassing piece of regularly-mangled music I am ever forced to hear, much less sing, which you will never hear me do. Ever. I will sing everything else, all the time, anywhere, but you will never hear me sing the happy birthday song. Never. And don’t get me started on having to hear some poor group of waiters and waitresses being forced to sing it to someone at their table.

I shudder.

With that in the forefront of your consciousness, I introduce an alternative song for birthday celebrations: Total Ghost’s “Happy Birthday”. Sure, it’s not as easy to remember, and it’s about 800 times as long, but it is so superior that I hereby move to have it utterly replace all instances of the original happy birthday song by Jan 1, 2013. Do you not agree? Are you not enticed by their faux-German superelectropopness? Does the multimedia display turn your stomach? Do you disapprove of smoking? Are you joyless? Then I don’t see why you might protest.

Enjoy and remember the next time you sing the old happy birthday song that you might just be causing someone horrible anguish and that person might be me.
