deviance

Reflecting on my time in the South (and specifically, at Vanderbilt), I’ve come to the conclusion that one of the very worst inclinations in human behavior is to celebrate conformity to a very boring, old fashioned notion of “proper behavior” (which, it should be noted, often features racism, sexism, homophobia and a variety of other not-very-proper behaviors). I’ve noticed in this time this blog has increasingly featured videos that celebrate the odd, eccentric, unusual, and creative. Today is no different. I hope that all of us will respond to the lone, odd dancer by joining in.
