Tiny dancer - Sing With Me If It's Just For Today... — LiveJournal
If I should fall behind, Guyster, wait for me.
Tiny dancer
I can’t remember whose idea it was for Billy to wear the red wig, but it looked funny with his bristle of a mustache sticking out and I remember he wanted to wear his shirt backward, so I buttoned it up for him. It was Billy’s first and last appearance on television. Our friend Mickey hosted and produced a cable access show that was a purposeful train wreck, and on this episode, she booked Francine Dancer as her guest.

Francine was an LA-famous, yet homeless woman with a fondness for garish clothes and bouts of spontaneous street dancing. I believe she had her own cable access show, too. Mickey asked Billy if he’d like to dance with Francine on the show, and while Billy said yeah, sure, he was still too shy to do it without some sort of disguise.

That Herman Munster laugh you hear in the background is mine, egging him on, proud as can be.

When Mickey gave me this clip a few days ago, I asked her when it was done. She looked it up and said it was November 21, 2001, which makes it two months to the day before Billy left. Two fucking months later…

And I still can’t believe it.

I know that for all practical purposes I don't know you, but that doesn't prevent me from missing you anyhow. So I am beaming warmly in your general direction.

That's very sweet. Wonderful that you have Billy's voice and dance steps to watch.

The thing I usually miss the most when I think of lost loved ones is the ability to hear their voice.

The video made me laugh this morning...just what I needed to get my day started.

My heart goes out to you T. Even though you and I have never met I have learned so much from you...which helps me to cope, on a daily basis, with Ted no longer being in my life. BUT he is still so much alive in my heart.

Hope you had a great Christmas!!!
