This picture is an accurate representation of exactly what happens every time Flans tries to take John out somewhere
I want to know: Does he assume no one is watching him, or does he just not give a shit?
My theory is that he’s at least partially doing it because he’s awkward and still kinda nervous about being on stage and so he just kinda freaks out and tries to come up with some random thing to do to deal with being nervous, but it’s rather…counter-productive? haha. JOHN, IF YOU THINK PEOPLE ARE GONNA BE LOOKING AT YOU AND THINKING YOU’RE WEIRD, BEING REALLY WEIRD DOESN’T REALLY HELP.
So one thing about me is that I never ever dance, even when I’m really getting into music, because I just feel too self-conscious and awkward. I bop around a fair bit when I’m at a TMBG show cos I just CAN’T NOT then but that is it.
But today I was repeating “No One Knows My Plan” (forever) and I was like “WHAT THE HELL” and was dancing around alone in my tiny apartment a bit and IT WAS PRETTY DAMN FUN ACTUALLY. And I was like “God you must look like such a DORK” but then I thought how THAT DOESN’T STOP A CERTAIN SOMEONE and I was too busy giggling/thinking about how adorable he is too care.
Then later I was joking with Apollo that I’m going to get to where I can exactly mimic John’s dancing (“dancing”) in the “They’ll Need a Crane” video and then we can go to Central Park and re-enact it. Then I was like “But we gotta find some old guys” but then I immediately thought of AT LEAST TWO WE CAN SNAG. Awwwwwwwwwww. OUR LITTLE BABY JOHNS GREW UP.
I want to make so many TMBG gifs and I just realized that almost all the ones I currently have in mind are just JOHN BEING A SPAZZY WEIRDO and that that already gives me material for like 3,273 gifs so yeh I’ll be busy for a bit
In Cowtown we were talking about this post and I was saying how I hope John does inexplicable spazzy things like that in his everyday life all the time and god Henry must be constantly embarrassed by what a dork he is and Apollo reminded me of this time years ago that people were discussing on LJ whether he was “old enough to be embarrassed by” his appearance in Gigantic and she said “Forget Gigantic, I wonder if he’s old enough to be embarrassed by his dad’s dancing in ‘They’ll Need a Crane’!” and this is why you should all love Apollo
(BONUS: Firefox just spellchecked “spazzy” as “snazzy” and now I am picturing John in an outfit that could be accurately described as “snazzy” and being very amused
and also turned on)
