Been checking out Pharrell's 24 Hours of Happy and some of the people don't seem to care what they look like and totally go with it and have fun. Others are decidedly apprehensive. I would probably not even volunteer to do this sort of thing myself. For those of you who can dance like nobody's watching, or do or say something funny that might grab the attention of the room, or sing karaoke at a bar, etc, I am curious to know what goes on in your head before, during, or after you "perform." Other ways to phrase this question: What makes you a ham? Do you think about what you are doing or going to do, or just go with it? Why don't you get embarrassed when you do something fun and crazy? Or do you? What is the payoff for you? Were you born this way or did you learn it somehow?

Hello, this is my first question! I have a super cool friend visiting me from the east coast. We used to go dancing back in the day and would like to go out this weekend. We are looking for recommendations for a nice place to go dance in Portland, Oregon. We are hip chicks in our early 40's, and we used to dance our booties off to house music in NYC but are now sadly out of touch. Last year we danced at Halocene, which was pretty fun, but we are wondering if anyone has a favorite place to go get sweaty.
Can anyone recommend good clubs in Japan (especially Tokyo) that play music that would appeal to your typical Pitchfork reader? I'm thinking along the lines of indie electro/pop/rock music, a bit of hip hop in there, and maybe some older favourites.
In approximately two weeks, I will be holding a Blanket Fort Goodbye Party on almost the entire top floor of an apartment building. Given the excellent ideas I got from this previous party thread, I thought I'd ask what you crazy kids: what would you want to see at a blanket fort party? [more inside]

SWFloridaFilter: Is there anything fun to do at night in Ft. Myers, Florida? I'm 30-something from the SF Bay area, and I'm having a hard time finding anything online or in the local paper. Thanks!
