Kardashians – Smardashians

I invented reality TV.

Long before The Real World, Survivor, Big Brother, or KUWTK (yeah, I used the initials) I was ‘filming’ reality TV in my house.  As a kid I played many games of make believe.  Some of my favorites included kid classics: school, office, grocery store, library, and restaurant.  But those all involved having a friend playing with me to really properly set the scene.

When I was on my own I pretended I had a movie camera following me around documenting my every move.  Sometimes I would talk directly to the camera (“confession cam” style) but most of the time I would just be going about my day as “they” followed me.  In a significant amount of this footage I was a dance teacher.  So they would follow me to my studio (aka, our playroom above the garage) and film as I choreographed or taught class.  I did most of this to the Bette Midler The Divine Miss M album.  If you are not familiar with this album you should be.  Seriously, she truly is divine.  I still have the album and listen to it regularly.

And now, for your listening pleasure, “Do You Want to Dance?”
