General update on projects I'm involved with

Zine - looking for a new place to house the printer/computer/scanner. c{space was seen as temporary to begin with, and it's looking like it needs to be more temporary than first anticipated. The deadline for getting it out of c{space is Feb 17th. If nothing comes up I'm just going to rent storage space, but I'd rather only move the Printer on more time... it's a bit of a chore!

Proposal - Ten Principles for The Sideshow

Please read the following and leave your thoughts in the comments. This is a proposal for the adoption of principles which would guide the participants of The Sideshow. It is adopted and modified from similar principles used at participatory art events around the world, including the Burning Man festival in Black Rock City, Nevada. While already doing most of these things actively, it answers some of the questions we get as to why we do what we do.

Ten Principles for The Sideshow

Radical Inclusion
Anyone may be a part of The Sideshow. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.

AWESOME flash mini-game

I really like this for the music, and playing this game is like discovering paintings. It's a little weird at first, but give it time! It only takes about 20 minutes to play through, maybe less, and it's totally worth it, especially if you're nostalgic at all for metroid or castlevania (the originals)... This is more art than game, though.

I hate mini-flash games. This came highly recommended, so I tried it. Fantastic.

Really Really Free Stuff (online)

In the tradition of the Really Really Free Market and Freecycle, I'm going to be posting stuff I'm giving away to the Solicitations and Opportunities Forum over the next two weeks... check back frequently! Have something of to give away? Join in the fun by posting your own free stuff.

Circus Blog Contributors

Would anyone besides Rich like to contribute to the font page of our site? We could use a couple more moderators to promote good posts to the front page, too.

Update

It's been a productive week for the ExtraTerrestrial Circus Experiment - We've been working in two different states! Adam (the leader) is working with a production of Barnum - a musical about life in the circus - at Penn State, while Olivia, Matt L and myself returned to Boston to assist with the big Open Air Circus kids' show. Tricia and Bee returned to Arizona, but we'll be meeting up again with them soon.

UN Dignitary visits my Master

a Dignitary from the UN visited with my Master in India recently. This is what he had to say:

“ There are many commonalities between the Shri Ram Chandra Mission and my organization, the United Nations. Both enshrine universal values, values of peace, values of tranquility, values of development, values of fraternity, equality, and dignity of every individual. ”

- Mr Rajiv Chandran, Spokesman for India and Bhutan at the United Nations

All aboard the FAILboat (kinda)

Well, to all of those who doubted me... um, you know me better than I know myself.

Sideshow Awesome

The public drum jam on the corner last night was among the coolest things I've witnessed/participated in here in Dayton. People of different races, backgrounds, old and young, all coming together to create music, dance, laugh, and enjoy. That would have been awesome in any city, anywhere in the world. Adam and Christine did a very cool job setting that up! A special highlight was a little kid, he couldn't have been more than three or four, keeping the beat for like twenty minutes. The drum was almost as tall as him!

email inbox: 0

Holy crap, I just answered all the mail in my e-mail inbox for the second day running. It's a weird feeling... I'm so used to having at least 10 or 20 unread messages at the end of the day. I read all my online comics, browsed Digg, caught up on my favorite blogs, updated the Circus website... there's nothing left to do on the internet! WTF!!!1!

Thank God I got rid of StumbleUpon, that thing is like internet crack.

Well, I guess there really is nothing left to do after I post this blog entry. Um, sleep? read a book? meditate? play a song? who knows what kind of adventures lie ahead!
