I Guess I Didn't Know (And I Never Will)

There is a show called Cirque De Shanghai in town at Navy Pier. While I’m working, running photos up and down the stairs, I go by the stage, and it SOUNDS like one hell of a show. But I never get to see it for myself . . .

Judging by all the gasping in wonder that I’m hearing in there, I’m just assuming that there are one hundred little Asian acrobats doing back-flips onto a one hundred man human pyramid, or better yet, a human sculpture of Godzilla, complete with fire breath.

The musical accompaniment is traditional Asian music, as expected, but at one point that “I guess I didn’t know” song by Crystal Method kicks in. “Get busy time!!” I suppose that truly is the get busy time portion of the show, because it SOUNDS really awesome in there at that point. I was thinking of weaseling my way into the show, or even paying for ticket, but I think I’m just going to assume, like I always have, that they’re swallowing fire, while juggling atomic warheads, and carrying anvils with their scrotal sacks.

As piracy runs rampant in many Asian countries, I think one can make an educated assumption that "Cirque de Shanghai" is exactly like "Cirque du Soliel (sp)."

RevRee said...

Maybe it's an asian orgy? It's just a thought...

Cherry- You're probably right, but I just have to see it for myself. I'm like the guy in Mallrats that can't see the sailboat.

Revree: If I'm missing out on an Asian orgy I'll be REALLY pissed. Acrobatic orgies! No we're getting somewhere.

I think you should audition for that show and bring some diversity up in that bitch. You could help take that human flame throwing pyramid bit up a notch by making it fight a chinese star throwing Mothra.

Classy: Chinese star throwing Mothra?? That would be a dream come true. Remember those two pint-sized Asian gals that would sing and control Mothra somehow?

Cherry Ride said...

What ever happened to those to women, anyway? I think they became the Pink Ladies from "Pink Ladies and Jeff" show in the 70s (seriously, google it).

Gancer: I feel your pain re: leaving comments. I wish they'd fix that shit. When I leave comments on people's sites, it is my old profile. WTF?

RevRee said...

Cherry, why must you be hot and gay? this is so unfair!

NAME: Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Cherry: I think those Mothra babes are due for a comeback. Maybe they can bust those Mothra songs over some phat, Jay Z beats. As far as the beta blog stuff goes, I'm getting super pissed.

Revree: He's hot AND funny, but gayer than the Ice Capades. Life is unfair like that, isn't it?

RevRee said...

The only thing wrong with being gay is, thats one less man for me... HA!

Cherry Ride said...

Now just hold on a second - I am not GAYER than the ice capades! I'm about AS GAY, but not GAYER!

(Yes, I'm flamboyantly gesturing and using my hands as I say this.)

RevRee said...

Cherry, you're gay, but not ice capades gay... So, you're saying I still have a chance? YES!!!!

PS thanks for the love in Dyckerson's post!

NAME: Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Cherry: I guess I don't know you well enough to make that Ice Capades analogy. I laughed my ass off at your hand gesture line!

Rev: What's up with Dykerson? He doesn't comment on my comments. I hate people that do that. What do I have to know a hand shake? Well, at least you're cool. I think you can sway Cherry back into hetero-style. I think he likes the black gloves.ms

RevRee said...

Dr. Ken darlin', I'm not sure why he's done that. I'm pretty sure he's not doing it on purpose. Insult him more, he loves that, I swear!

Cherry Ride said...

Gancer:
FYI, I voted for you in Revree's poll. Not becuase I want to sleep with you (you READ like you're a handsome guy and all, but I'm already in a relationship) but because you need some representin'!

NAME: Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Rev: Okay, if I make it back to his page I'll diss him like no tomorrow.

Cherry: Thanks for the props! That boosted me up to 5% of the popular vote! There IS a pic of me on the the World According to Frank Zappa post. http://thegancer.blogspot.com/2006_03_01_archive.html
Well, at least I still READ like a handsome guy, right?

laura said...

That picture of you is too much hotness for this blog's own good.

However, it's not your fault that God decided to make you irresistible, right?

RevRee said...

Dr. Ken,

Ummm...you do know that you're hot, right? I mean, I know you're taken and all...I'm just sayin', thats all...

NAME: Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Hey, Laura. Glad to have you back. Yup, that's me on the toilet alright.

Thanks, Rev. I've been growing the moustache for a while. I'm glad you like it.

laura said...

Oh, Dr. Ken. I never left! I don't always comment on your posts but I always read them.

I think my last comment was on your "kids and genitals" post.

Steph said...

Beta blogger sucks arse. I posted a comment three times!

Anyhoo, I love Asians. They're crazy in a fun way. I'd go see that show for sure.

NAME: Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

Sorry all. My internet has been down. I'm back in action and I'll post again really soon. Steph, I can't comment on your page anymore because of my beta status. : (
