I have the distinct impression someone recently offered me the loan of a PA system. I suddenly have a reason to borrow one. Can you please remind me who you were? :-}

the NYT says: Obama wins, McCain concedes at 11:15pm

Just dug up an AP story claiming McCain called to concede defeat
(If you have a better link, I'd love to hear about it.)

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. :-)

Free stuff. All you have to do is either come get it, or be willing to pay shipping. Comment here to claim stuff.

TWO copies of "Vision: the Life and Music of Hildegard von Bingen" (aka "Hildegard: the dance remix")

L'Etivaz Cheese: "Named after the village where in the 1930's, 76 farmers, fearing that the gruyere consortium was not upholding age-old standards, withdrew to produce their own authentic cheese."

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... )

That was a beautiful, wonderful thing. Thank you all for participating, no matter which side of the curtain you were on. :-)

The show is coming together wonderfully; last night's dress rehearsal gave me shivers (in a good way) at several points.
Don't miss it! More info on the show's web site.

[livejournal.com profile] 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...

Mischief in the Machine - A Circus Folktale

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+.

When:
Friday, May 30th - 7:30PM doors, 8PM show
Saturday, May 31st - 7:30PM doors, 8PM show
Sunday, June 1st - 2:30PM doors, 3PM show
Where:
Boston University Dance Theater
915 Commonwealth Avenue
Boston, MA
(Directions: Green line, B train, to St. Paul Street; parking also available.)

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 )

I just sent email about this to friends I thought might be interested.... but in case you haven't already somehow heard about this:

ENSMB Auction THIS THURSDAY! )

In case you're not already reading it, I'd like to do a little plug for Dresden Codak, which stars Tiny Carl Jung as a recurring character (he can climb inside your brain!), and has just put in throwaway references to Feynman's bongos and popularizing of the "electron cloud" model, AND to Albert Einstein. And if that doesn't grab you, maybe this mashup of D&D, world religions, and philosophy of mind will. =)

Tonight I made a yummy chipotle vodka sauce. Because our farmshare gave them to us and I thought it would be tasty, I substituted tomatillos for some of the tomatos. I think it gave a very pleasant tart/lemony flavor to the sauce, which integrated well with the warmth of the chipotle as well as all the other flavors.

For my future reference, here is the recipe... )

Emperor Norton is performing this Sunday night with the Boston Babydolls (link NVSFW!).

In the future, I might not post announcements of every ENSMB gig in my LJ; if you want to hear about them, you should put the [livejournal.com profile] ensmb community on your friends' list.
