Hey-yo Flipsiders! Sorry for the blogging hiatus. I'm happy that my colleagues were able to satisfy your crazy social appetities while I was on vacay in San Francisco -- and what a wine-and-thai-food-filled weekend it was.
Alrighty, let's get to it. On October 27 (or on October 28, in other parts of the world), a group called Thrill the World is attempting to organize the world's largest simultaneous dance to MJ's "Thriller." (Stuck in your head now, isn't it?) Why, for the love of God? To break the Guiness World Record, of course.
According to Thrill the World's website, there will be 60 dancing events in 15 countries. The Boston team will boogie down at 6 p.m. on October 27 at a to-be-determined location. Zombie dress is optional, but c'mon, anything less is weak sauce.
[Michael wants you to dance. Or else he will dangle you over a balcony.]
Get your ghoulish self to the first rehearal this Saturday, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. at Harvard's Longwood Campus in the Vanderbuilt Gym. If you want more info, you can contact Thrill the World Boston's organizers Dave and Janice at firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you want to brush up on your skills, check out these tutorials on YouTube.
