Why yes, I'm doing a bit of belated spring cleaning, why do you ask? It's all a bit of yak-shaving; I needed to find something in the basement, and surfaced not only with that item, but a big pile of stuff I realized doesn't need to live in my basement any more.
As an adult child of packrats, I try to listen to the little voices when they tell me to get rid of items. :-)
I admit, it's awfully good cheese. But, somehow, the description makes me think of crotchety little old farmers sitting in beerpubs, complaining about how Standards have Declined and how the Times have Changed and whatnot. Except in swiss german. (And possibly complaining of Great Existential Angst.)
I haven't seen any notifications through more-official Emperor Norton channels, so I'm going to jump the gun here and make my own:
This Saturday and Sunday, Emperor Norton, aided by some of our Madcap Rumpus Society, will bring our circus magic to this year's SummersDay Revels. We'll be playing on both Saturday and Sunday, from 5-7pm each day. The festivities occur along the Fort Point Channel, near the Boston Children's Museum.( More info... )
coraline and I stayed home and joined the circus (which is like running away and joining the circus, only different) and the show goes up this coming weekend (5/30-6/1). Tickets are now on sale; see the bottom of this post for info on getting yours -- I'd love to see you there!
Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band presents...
Through our signature blend of live music, theater & circus arts, Mischief in the Machine tells a tale of the re-emergence of hope in a dilapidated world where everyday life has been crushed under an oppressive regime of silence. The story follows a haphazard hero who uses playfulness and absurdity to rally a misfit resistance.
Mischief in the Machine is an adult theatrical-style circus performance, which includes acrobatics, aerial performance, dance, and an all-original musical score composed and performed by Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band, along with a special appearance and composition by HUMANWINE!
Due to mature themes and imagery, Mischief in the Machine is recommend for ages 16+.
Friday, May 30th - 7:30PM doors, 8PM show

If you plan to go, I strongly advise buying tickets IN ADVANCE -- we sold out our last full-circus performance a year ago and had to turn many people away at the door.( You can buy tickets ONLINE via Paypal )
