oh, what a feeling!, OR, "anything to feel again"

there are downsides to performing... there aren't tons really, but there is a major one for me. my fourth wall has been broken whenever i watch anyone else perform. maybe it's just me, but watching plays and movies - well, everything is affected. it's like having the curtain pulled back on Oz, and you see how all of it can't stop thinking about the process instead of just enjoying the art (or spectacle) all the way.

this brings me to the RIO PARADE! OF! LIGHTS! and! SHOWGIRLS! and! CEILINGS!; here at the rio, there's a parade "ON THE CEILING" every hour or so five times a night. i walked into it, not having any idea what the hell it was, so i stuck around for most of it. pretty much, it's like an electric light parade with floats hung from the ceiling instead on a track, all while dancers shimmy to "she bangs" or "hot,hot,hot" or "fill in that song here, you know the one". people ooh-ed and aah-ed and really were very interested in the whole thing, for the most part. i watched them more than i watched the show, because these poor entertainers looked like the characters in Polar Express (read: dead inside).

keep them in your hearts.
she bangs.
