Total World Domination

China is going to take over the world. What? You don't believe me? Well, I didn't believe that you could ride a unicycle on top of an umbrella before last night. But then I saw the Peking Acrobats. And they finally settled the question; yes, you can ride a unicycle on an umbrella.

So, what else did I see. I saw a man balance on one end of a teeter totter and use the other end to fling not one, not two, not three, but four bowls into the air and land in a stack on top of his head.

I saw one girl stand on top of two girls heads, while two other girls walked underneath. Not impressed? Oh, did I mention everyone was spinning six plates at the same time.

I saw people bend in ways that I'm pretty sure are illegal in most states. I saw more people ride on one bike than can comfortably fit in my living room.

I heard more audience members mutter, "Oh, hell no" than any time besides when I watched Black Knight at Steve Wilkens' place.

If the Peking Acrobats come to your town, you should check them out. Or you can just wait till they take over the world and see them then. Its really your call.

SF Sketchfest 2007

Where are you going to be this Friday?

That wasn't a rhetorical question...

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, you should be at the Eureka Theatre checking out "Growing up is Tough" by Neil Campbell and Paul Rust at SF Sketchfest 2007.

As an added bonus, you'll get to see that dude from the Daily Show. No, not Craig Kilborn, that other guy, what's his name? oh, yeah, Bob Corddry.

Best of 2005

I've had some questions about whether I'm still planning on riding RAGBRAI this summer. Well, I want to lay all of the Donald's nasty rumors to rest: the answer is no. Due to scheduling conflicts with my riding team, a bike that doesn't have all its spokes, and most importantly that jerk Lance Armstrong stealing my thunder. What this all means to you dear reader, is that you have more time to prepare for RAGBRAI 2008 (or least come up with our team name).

Instead of riding all the way across Iowa, I will be running across the Golden Gate Bridge this summer during the San Francisco Marathon. So if you aren't doing anything else on July 29, you should come run 26.2 miles. Here are some pictures of what you can look forward to (WARNING: you might not actually want to click that link, its for San Francisco's more popular race Bay to Breakers Don't say I didn't warn you!)
