Dear Phoenix, -fucking REALLY?!

The idea that street performing is regulated anywhere in the United States pisses me the fuck off.<p>
REALLY?! <p>
Fucking really?!!<p>
It can be illegal to juggle? <p>
Read that again, I'll wait.<br>
It's illegal to juggle sometimes. What the shit?!<p>
I was recently asked to remove myself and my props from a public street. The alternative was jail time. <p><br>
I am planning to do a show as an act of dis-civil obedience. <br>
I will obey the "do not perform here" law with such silliness that it should force the issue.<p>
I intend to direct the audience into an act (which is actually pretty good, and can work right away) which I will watch. <br>
The audience will become the performer, and I will become the spectator.<p>
With any luck, the police will ask <b>ME</b> to shut this down and move along. ME! The audience member! Haha!<p>

So yeah. First Friday. Second And Roosevelt. In the street, where it's blocked off. Right in the middle, where I'm not supposed to be.
Let's sayyyyy, 9:30 pm?

Back from the International Super Side Show in Las Vegas.

We had a great time in Las Vegas.

Eight minutes of our show got cut due to fire restrictions last minute. It's always tough to come up with a great show with no materials. Especially when you're expected to do so in the hour that you should be sound checking. I think we did pretty fucking well anyway. <p>
This was the third performance of the rake act, and it went off perfectly. I don't know how a person can be sitting in the audience, see a rake on stage, and not instantly think "somebody is going to get hit in the face with that". So far though, the glass-rake-face-explosion has been a surprise all three times.

It's a shame that something that I like so much only occupies about 3 seconds of stage time (including my stumbling after the hit). I love it though. Come see the show soon, things are getting exciting. <p>

Here, have some pictures from Las Vegas!!
