    me and globatron used to do that trick back in college behind the BFA warehouse. he he , just kidding. i’ve been to 2 CDS shows and i find the spectacle absolutely exhilarating. isn’t it nice that we have re-imagined the notion of ‘the circus’. well, not we, they, the royal we, the editorial…

    No Akbar that was basketball we played. It felt like a circus trick though for sure.

    To be honest I had no idea what to expect. None. I honestly thought there were going to be animals there. I was hoping my toddler could have seen some circus animals performing then was told by my wife how inhumane they are treated and how I should be ashamed of myself for thinking that.

    With that aside, it was spectacular. There was this one performer on a bike that blew my mind. Never in a million years did I know you could do tricks like that on a bike. I could go on and on but it would give it no justice.

    Morrison has an interview also that we’re going to post as soon as we can get together and compress it. Wish I could have made the final run through. I had to work and such. Really stoked Morrison was able to attend and I’m excited to see the other video footage he took.
