feel alive

In 1974, Phillipe Petit took a walk between the two towers of the World Trade Center on a cable 1450 feet above the street. His film, "Man On Wire", released in 2008, tells the story of this breathtaking event and is as artfully made as as any documentary I've ever seen. In another words, it is art. I highly recommend seeing it.





I'll bet 

Phillipe puts 

this on 

his omelet.

I bet he leaves the shells in the omelets. Good ruffage! He must have specially designed pants to hold those kahunas.

You betcha, Brian -- cargo pants full of cracked-shell kahunas.

Number one: concur that Man On Wire was a terrific, riveting, personal, well done documentary. And I lived in NY when he did this. Never knew the details.
Number two: Mega Death hot sauce sounds like it could kick the butt of a sauce someone just gave me called
" Slap Your Mama ".
Number three: love the painting of the moon between two roofs, thinking it's from another post.
Being away and devoid of the internet leaves too much blog catching up to do.

Hi Bonnie-
1) I thought of you when PP was in the dentist's office ripping up magazines while kack kacking.
2) With a long life in mind, I've never let the Mega Death genie out of the bottle, but I bet he'd kick Slap Your Mama in the butt.
3) The moon and its roofs and I thank you and are all happy to get strokes whenever/wherever.
P.S. Blogs are like babies: they always need to be fed and changed.
