Ms. Liberty looks like she smells something awful.
Street performance is pretty goddamn cool in New York, I captured some footage around the city today, check it out. This is how smart people make money.

When Juanita and I arrived at our hotel, one of the first things we did is beeline to theA�ConciergeA�andA�inquireA�aboutA�BroadwayA�shows, and baseball games. About 40 minutes, and maybe $900 later, we had tickets to see Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark, Memphis and New York Yankees Vs. Boston Red Sox.
So tonight Juanita and I saw Spider-Man (sorry the pic above sucks, photography wasn’t allowed in the theater), and the big reason I wanted to see it wasn’t because it was Spider-Man (it wasn’t, shut up) but because I saw a behind the scenes mini-documentary on the plane from Orlando, and I was really impressed with the transforming sets they use – things like a giant building facade will split and fold into a school room scene, or a street scene will be comprised of 4 panels that folder into each other to give the impression of the scenery changing, while the actors walk on a stationary treadmill to look like they are constantly walking along. The music was really inspiring, a tad goofy (in a good way) at times – like watching The Green Golbin sing ‘A Freak like Me needs Company’. And don’t even get me started on the Wire effects, Spider-Man was stupidly convincing with how he used the ENTIREA�THEATERA�in his webslinging which made sure that NOBODY had a bad seat. They used 9 different Spider-Mans, to give the best effect of him swinging everywhere – best example would be Spider-Man swinging off stage, then suddenly he swings out from a balcony seat – giving the impression of movement.

Clarinex delivery New York City is a historic place. It is also dirty, busy and rude. But it’s an experience – You crane your head to even approach seeing the top of the buildings that surround you, and you walk block after block without the skyline thinning. There are hot dog vendors on every corner, and if you stop moving for a second the wave of people will engulf you without hesitation. Oh, and if you are a driver – if you don’t make that corner quickly, YOU ARE’N’T MAKING IT. There is now a wall of human beings that is thick enough to bury your stupid yellow cab. New York.

2 days, like 20+ rides, this place is nuts.
Hot, HOT Florida weather was finally becoming second nature to us, we weren’t cooking as bad as Disney, but it was still hot. Universal Studios is, for the most part, split into 2 distinct areas. There is the Islands of Adventure, and theA�Universal Studios FloridaA�which are split with a store front walkway withA�restaurantsA�and the like. Both parks are great, but logically we decided to go to one on each day.

Let’s not go there. (No wait, we did. We totally did.)
Best exit to a ride ever.
Disney, Disney, DISNEY!!!
Ok, so I amA�writingA�this post on the eve of our final day at Disney World, Florida. Three action packed days and no, we did not see it all! So day 1, we spent the day at Magic Kingdom– home of Cinderella’s Castle, Pirates of the Caribbean and the spinning tea cups. One of the most iconic parks of Disney, what wasA�meantA�to only be a 1/2 day- turned into a full day in a blink of an eye. starting in Tomorrow land, our first ride was with Buzz Lightyear andA�becomingA�a StarA�Commander followed by a visit to the Monsters Inc. laugh floor. With the day moving along, we headed to the Disney Hollywood Studios where weA�experiencedA�the Star Wars ‘Star Tours’ ride, watched the 3d Muppets show and got a autograph and photo with Buzz and Woody from Toy Story (autograph for Nephew Oliver).
