Blue Man Group – awe and wonder

The Omaha Film Festival attends the Blue Man Group, live in concert in Omaha. That’s right Jeremy, Jason and I just got back from one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen/heard. If you’ve seen them, you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, it’s a must. Oh, did I mention that we were in the second row, right in the middle? It’s one thing to be that close to a concert or show, but to be literally ten feet away from the spectacle that is BMG is really something to behold. And given their proclivity to pulling people from the audience and otherwise getting the crowd involved, I attempted to not maintain eye contact on the several times when they looked directly at me from the stage. The girl directly in front of me got pulled up after they all came down and went through her purse looking for a credit card. A gal four seats over went up at the end to read from a book introducing the band. And a guy 7 seats over had the camera-down-the-throat treatment (you’d have to see the show to understand – nasty).

Oh, did I also mention going back stage and hanging out with the Blue Men afterward? Yeah, they’re just a creepy in person. I got their “autograph.” And a picture. And I might have nightmares tonight.

What a trip. I’m ready to go again right now. Thanks Jeremy. Merry Christmas.

In its original sense this was a group of individuals defined mainly by
their membership of some formal body, but the concept has been expanded to encompass the customers of a range of retail outlets.
I have more than once looked down to find my shoes untied and quickly realized I had unconsciously reverted to my old ways.
A dignified look can be instantly received with
such a tie.

Another available treatment option that can be done at home without
a prescription is a topical ointment. This is a great font for use
with winter designs as you prepare all your Christmas artwork.
Click OK and wait a second or two for the effect to be applied.

Everything published made a bunch of sense. But, think on this, suppose you typed
a catchier post title? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added something that makes people want more? I mean "Blue Man Group - awe and wonder" is kinda plain. You could glance at Yahoo's front
page and see how they create post headlines to get viewers interested.
You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get readers
excited about everything've got to say. Just my opinion, it might make your blog a little bit more interesting.
