Vacation in England

I took a week off and flew to England to see my better half.

Here are some pics from that trip.

London is a big place and I often need to look for directions...

Weekend at the Circus

June 12-14, 2009

This past weekend was the Circus weekend for me. Cirque du Soleil was in town for Luminato - there was major confusion on what type of performances they were going to be doing and when. Little detail was released until Thursday - day before the start of the shows and still there were confusions.

They could have learn a thing or two from Pi-Leau about street theatre, who were in town for the Wintercity festival.

Cirque du Soleil is 25 years old and I think they have moved away from street theatre - they specialize in the sit down big shows - not the interactive street theatre anymore. This is what they are known for today and this was what was expected - by providing little details on what they were going to be doing they set expectations too high and there were alot of disappointed people.

The final show was on Sunday and I don't know who picked the place to put the stage on but the HTO park was a bad choice - trees that blocked prime viewing areas were all over the place. Performance seemed to be shorten due to the rain delay - maybe their permit ran out - I am not sure.

Here are some pics from the show.

The other Circus I was at was the iFreestyle 4th Anniversary party. Well planned and attended, fun was had by all. Hope they have many more anniversary parties in the future.

Here they were having a strong man competitation.

Cannibal Girls

When I saw this picture - I just though of an old 70s Canadian low budget film (yes -Canadian low budget not US low budget, so you can image how low budget it really was) called Cannibal Girls. Its about three woman who lure men to their homes using their charms and then has a big feast out of them.

From the original movie trailer
"They are young, beautiful, and very very sexy..."

Angus may think he is going to have the time of his life but really he is going to be Angus burger for the girls.
