I have some sad news: Dancing Dave has passed away

There was this local guy in houston, who had chemicals poured on him while working years ago.

And then started dressing real weird. Like, wearing pink vests and a cape, and yellow spandex with a belt that had turn signals on it, and a big purple 10-gallon hat, and some superman underoos on the outside and gardening gloves and 1990's style sunglasses and big orange boots.

And he legally changed his name to Dancing Dave.

And he'd go from club to club at night and dance by himself, and talk real loud, about how 1982 was the best year in the world, because that's the year his wife left him.

Note that I didn't lie nor exaggerate in any of that description.

Anyways, he died the other day, doing what he loved: sleeping. My brother called me up and told me. Let us pay our respects to Dancing Dave.

    I remember previous posts about Dancing Dave.

    I hope he's in Heaven right now, dancing with Wesley Willis.

    My brother has some video footage of him. I'm gonna try and get it later today and maybe upload it to youtube in his memory. I can't express how fucking awesome this guy was - he was like a real life super hero.

    hmmmm

    He would always talk about how he was working in Texas City and had chemicals poured on him, and then he decided to change his name.

    I dunno if there's a relation. Maybe it was just something that sparked an epiphany moment?

    Try talking to the rash one of these days.

    Also, Dancing Dave sounds like he was the raddest.

    Maybe he'll come back as a zombie. You know, those chemicals and all.

    He'd go to this local club called "The Hop"

    and he'd yell out "Everybody let's get dancing now! Dancing Dave will show you how!"

    I am being 100% fucking serious. Now if thats not badass, what is?

    One time my sister, who was quite visibly pregnant at the time, was walking down the street to her appartment and Zanta Claus was on the other side walking the other way.
    He stopped, pointed and yelled, "Ya! Ya! Ya! You're gonna have a baby! Ya!"
    Then proceeded to do presumably thousands of pushups on the sidewalk.
