awesome stuff

Arcadian Broad you made me cry a river.

May 13, 2010

the other day i was watching an episode of America’s got Talent, an episode that i had pvr-ed. anyway one of the contestants was a 13 year old little red haired boy called arcadian, who made me cry like a waterfall on a tuesday. i balled my eyes out while i watched him dance to elton john’s ‘i’m still standing’. i literally sat on the floor and sobbed. now you’re probably thinking that i’m a complete and utter nutcase, but i’m not mad i promise and i wasn’t drunk either. it was just a combination of this kid’s passion for dance, the fact that he was mocked and left out of everything at school, his sweet little red-haired head and the idea that i will never ever ever again be a little kid. no way, no how, which is a little sad in my eyes…….i have watched this clip, no lies, like 23 times and last night i taped it off my tv so i could show you guys. he has the best moves i’ve ever seen on a fanta pants x x
