C.I.R.C.U.S. now has a Mac Pro!

Guess who just saved $2,500 on a quad-core mac?

Utilizing my L337 h4xx0r sk1llz I have installed Mac Leopard 10.5.6 on the Circus computer, giving us the capabilities of a $2,500 Mac Pro. It has Aperture and Final Cut Pro Express installed, a quad-core 2.66 intel with 6GB of RAM, a DVD-burner with Light-scribe capabilities, and over 2 TB of storage. Mac people, rejoice! You now no longer have to deal with windows (ugh!) or learn the vagaries of Linux to enjoy the luxurious storage and sleek super-fast computational powers of the Circus computer.

The Swamp (another short story)

About forty cigarettes into the semester, we were referred to as “the cancer kids.” It’s funny that they called us that, because the cruelty of the statement actually didn’t faze us, nor the validity of the statement. The others just really didn’t understand; they didn’t know how we worked. There was an air about us so-called cancer kids, and it wasn’t just a cloud of thick smoke. We had something other than a pack of Marlboro’s and a lighter. The Swamp was our haven, our paradise…in a way, the Swamp made us feel like smoking cigs was a decent way to make friends.

New Improv group starting in Dayton, Ohio

We are a new Improvisational Comedy Troupe called "Free Range Turkeys." We have four members now and are looking to expand to at least eight total. The founding members of the FRTs are George, Jarrod, Travis, and Ron. We want to make Dayton our home base of operations and need a place to have weekly practices, auditions, and performances. Will will also be writing and performing sketch comedy. We will be holding auditions for the remaining four spots (as soon as we find a place to have auditions).

exhibits at the cincy art museum in eden park right now are effing awesome.

all exhibits are free, but if you park at the museum it's four dollars.

SCRAP PAPER

Poetry by Me :)

Virginia
(a tribute to Virginia Woolf)
You lavishly described language as the wine upon your lips-
It was poisoned.
What happened to your country, your feminine country
Slipping through your fingertips, like your sanity—
Drowning in their taunts and drug down by the rock—the man.
Instead of telling the voices what’s what… they were your one escape,
Your only guarantee for pure bliss.
INSANITY-it is always better when drowning
And love is always better when only one person is hurt
Was the wine too strong, Virginia ?
Intoxication of metaphors, of poetry,

Homemade instrument making party!

So my large wood scultpures I have been talking about are not only things to engage your body in movement but they are also instruments. They all make different sounds but require the entire body to make them work. I'd like to have some get togethers before the sideshow in the garden where people can come make their own homemade instruments that they can use in conjunction with me pieces at the sideshow. Would anyone be into something like this?
