Ah,yes, The Sound of Music

Too tired to write my own blog today, but I don't have to because this is much better.

Here's some street theater from an Antwerp train station... 200 dancers descend on unsuspecting commuters. I used to do this kind of surprise street theater almost every week while I was at Berkeley, and there is nothing more gratifying than seeing people light up as they realize that reality has just shifted, just a little, but that life could always be just this amazing...

And by the way, THIS is why people lined up around the block to see Julie Andrews at BEA. What a talent!

Enjoy!

Like the Central Station vid in NYC where people froze in place, but a little more joyful. Thanks.

Like that great scene in The Fisher King... Nice remix too, this made my day. Thanks!

Eric, yes, I loved that Grand Central piece! That's more mind-bending, but this Antwerp one is, as you say, joyful.
