Okay friends – this is going to be hard but if you could bring back ONE person for a final concert, who would it be? My mom/dad picked the same person although it was a tight call between three. You see daddy LOVES him some Freddie Mercury – who does’t like Bohemian Rhapsody huh? Even my mom belts that song out in the car when it comes on the radio. And everyone has to agree that Michael Jackson knew how to rock. But our winner here at the Hotel Thompson was Elvis Presley. Mom said it was something about those eyes and hips. I don’t get it.
So who would YOU bring back for one final concert?
Hello my spooktacular friends. Count Baconula here with Day 18 of my 31 Days of Spook. Are you still with me in my adventure? Still being brave or are you holding someone’s paw or hand by now?
Today, I want to share something wickedly scary. Something that scared my mom so badly when she was just a mere girl. Something that she had nightmares about. Something that was way beyond it’s time and deserves a place on my 31 Days of Spook.
If you dare, if you are brave enough, if you are not scared yet, you must watch this video attached. Shivers – there is no other than Michael Jackson performing Thriller with the voice over from Vincent Price. Enjoy my little spooks!
Check out my jazz hooves – I gotta keep it moving – shaking it to the right – shaking it to the left – shake your hiney. No need for a reason – come on my friends – shake your hiney – uh huh – that’s it – move it – move it.
I think I can busta move like no one’s business. They call me the party pig. I’ve even been known to get mom up from the couch and shake her bon-bons with me. You know you want to get up with me now and dance, don’t you? Go ahead, no one’s looking.
I like ballet.
I’ve seen some famous Russian ballet dancers like Anna Pavlova, Mikhail Baryshnikov and Rudolf Nureyev perform. They are totally awesome! I can’t believe they dance and move so freely on their itty bitty toes. I’m not a big fan of the tights because well we all know that my pot belly is not made for them. It would show all of my fat rolls in a bad way. Also, my hooves won’t allow me to dance like them but I found a sweetheart that looks great in a tutu. If only I could meet her in real life – I think we could dance the night away. Hubba Hubba my sweets
I like square dancing.
This type of dance is done all over the world! Hey, when they play the upbeat music the announcer tells you what to do. As long as you know the moves, your’re good to go. And if you don’t know the moves, it’s easy to pick up and flow. I think it’s fun when they say things like: swing your partner; bow to your partner and bow to your corner; do sa do; promenade and partner trade. So much fun!
I like tap dancing.
This I *can* do. In fact, my floor in my bedroom is like a tile that echoes nicely when I attempt to tap dance. I’m not calling myself a Sammy Davis Jr or a Gregroy Hines but I think I can keep up with them. Every since I watched Mumble in Happy Feet, I absolutely knew that this dance was made for me – for sure!
I like Broadway dancing.
Of course I can’t hold up to the greats like Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Ann-Margret or Patrick Swayze for that matter. I’m not what do they say – light on my hooves. Although I do love to watch them on television. They don’t just dance – they float! It’s remarkable to watch them. They make it look so easy. Very talented people – very talented!
I like to WATCH belly dancing.
Snort – that’s right I said it. I like to *watch* belly dancing. Did you really expect me, a male pig, to say I like to belly dance – snort. Nope, not me. Although, like I said – I do like to watch it when mom attempts to do it. Again, I said attempt. I like it when she wears that shiny noisy thing around her waist and makes it sing. That really piques this pigs interest.
I like Pop dancing.
I have to bow out of this one though. My hooves really hold me back on this style. And really, this little pig can not compare to some wonderful, talented people out there. You know the ones like: Michael Jackson, MC Hammer, Beyonce, and Janet Jackson just to name a few. I love to watch them on MTV and I dream of one day performing like that, but that’s just it – a dream.
I hope you enjoyed my dance breakdown. Which one do you prefer?
I read about you all of the time and your cape fascination. I just wanted you to know that I have one too. My master made me this cape and I wear it ALL OF THE TIME. It’s like what the humans call a security blanket. It gives me special powers. I thought I would share a picture of me wearing it. Signed Super Snoopy
Dear Super Snoopy,
I absolutely love that cape. Is it silk? I’m going to have to leave a picture of that on my pillow in hopes that someone at the Hotel Thompson will see it and ask Santa for it for me. I think you look simply marvelous my little friend! Wear it with pride!

Quick, what’s the first thing you think of when you see us in this picture? Come on, you gotta be thinking the same thing we are! I knew it! You think you can dance and do this too? Signed Rockin’ Hamsters
Dear Rockin’ Hamsters,
That’s pretty cool dudes. I like the way ya’ll move and think. I think I’ll ask mom to put on some of that cool music and see if I can’t busta move tonight in my room. I’ve got the perfect floor for it. Keep rocking!
Look at this little face. How could anyone be in fear of me. I see grown adults jump on a table and scream. I’m not scary looking, am I? I’m kind of taking things personally now. Can we all just get along? Signed Harmless
I have to admit that you do look a little cute there in that picture. I’m not sure if it’s the cute ears, adoring eyes or those cute little hands. No, I wouldn’t be afraid of you my friend. You are priceless! I would definitely be your friend. Hugs
Do you like play an instrument dude? We put together a little band and we play once a week for all of our friends. Perhaps you can join? Signed Singing Merkats
Dear Singing Merkats,
I play a wind instrument but I’m not sure it would fit in your band. You look good though in your picture with all of your little band instruments. Maybe send me a CD to listen to. That would be awesome! Keep jamming!
