Most Facebook like me know about its On This Day feature. On This Day displays anything you’ve posted post on your own page from previous years. As an avid, I almost typed rabid – pretty close, Facebook user of eight years it is now rare to come across any given day that does not have at least four entries.
For the most part it’s a lovely trip down memory lane. All the jokes, the quips and memes, blog posts that I’ve chosen to share bringing memories. The only major downside is a bittersweet revisit when I come across where I’ve posted on someone who has left this realm – a loved one, a friend or a favored celebrity. One can choose to delete the any upsetting posts to avoid such in the future revisits, but I do not delete mine. I feel if I deemed it important enough to post in the first place, then I should live with it. After all I’ve have learned the hard way everything heals with time. And speaking of avored celebrity RIP Chuck Berry – who left us yesterday after 90 years and is now playing with his Ding-a-Ling for all eternity.
The other occasional downside is when I share something from another website —
I click looking forward to revisiting the fun of it only to see–
— it gone. It’s not my content so I have no control over it when this happens. For the most part when someone else decides to delete the content or the site altogether – it’s gone. I have had posts where my only descriptor was “HAH!” and I’ll never know what was so funny on that date – now those I will delete as it serves no purpose to connect to a dead link. However, this is YouTube where there is almost always duplicates of everything – especially things that amuse and delight. In this case it is a compilation of scenes from movies in which Christopher Walken is dancing. It underlies with C+C Music Factory’s “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” and I adore it. So I knew, KNEW there was no way there were not other posts of this out there, so – to the Google! My trust in this clip amusing others, as it does me, was valid. At least this is one dead post I can edit and keep the fun going.
And now for your and especially my own entertainment:
Christopher Walken Dance Now
Let’s see how others are getting through their Sunday:
Glad you found the video and were able to share it. Definitely entertaining. I had read somewhere that he was a dancer, but other than Hairspray Live, I don’t remember ever seeing him dance in anything.
Fun to read! I know what you mean about being reminded of those who are no longer with us….it’s bittersweet, but important to not fogret them. ~JudyK
LOL – an entertaining post. I know what you mean about seeing posts that make you a little sad because the person is no longer with us, but you’re right. It’s good to keep them.
That was really fun to watch. I had no idea he had danced in so many movies…but after watching this, I’m glad he did.
