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.
