You know what I was thinking about the other day? That little dingy bar in Belfast—the Black Sand Pub.  [Michael Westen]

You mean where we met. [Fiona Glenanne]

And I made the mistake of asking—[Irish accent] “Would you like to dance?” Then you pulled a snub-nose revolver on me. [Michael Westen ]

That I did. And you said— [Fiona Glenanne with an Irish accent]

“I assume that means yes.” [Michael Westen]

* Take my hand and I will pull you through *
* the light is gone, but I am still here with you *
* And can you feel me *
* Feel my reach? *
* Oh, honey, take it easy *
* Honey, just feel **

A ‘What If’ scenario that wouldn’t leave my head. I really doubt anything like this would ever happen, but what if Bendy and Boris had really different points of view on the whole studio and what happened there. Boris willing to forgive, forget, and move on, and Bendy…very much the opposite of all that!

So if Henry started working together with Boris things could get bad…really fast. With how irrational I usually think of him, Bendy would probably feel quite betrayed as well.

Meet Jelanii Kabita, a transgender man who dances to be free

  • Jelanii Kabita has dedicated his life to two simple principles: authenticity and dance. As his body syncs to the music, the boombox tattoo scrawled across his stomach dances along with each downbeat. It’s immediately clear that he was made to move.
  • “I dance to be free,” Kabita told Mic in an in-studio interview. “I dance to eat. I dance to live. I guess I perform dance to show other people that there’s other ways to express what’s going on inside of you.”
  • Kabita set himself on a path to freedom early on, after experiencing a rocky childhood in Kingston, New York. The 23-year-old first came out as bisexual to his mother in middle school. From that moment on, he endured severe abuse and was ultimately forced out of his home and into foster care. After finding his way to New York City, he found a sense of identity and belonging within the dance community.
  • Now, Kabita is the leader and founder of the Raiders of Concrete, a street dance crew composed of dancers from several different countries and backgrounds. Mic sat down with Kabita, who shared that he came out as transgender two years ago, and learned more about the story that brought him to where he is today. Read our interview with Jelanii.

“I’m a terrible dancer. I need to be really drunk and see a beautiful girl over there. It was a way of getting close to a girl without having to speak because always, whenever I opened my mouth, they would leave. So, dancing was a chance to keep them close.”
