- The Infamous Exploding Whale - How do you dispose of a beached whale carcass? Find out at TheExplodingWhale.com or perp.com. ExplodingWhale.com has the most information, but perp.com has the highest resolution video of the unforgettable event.
- Cirque du Soleil - I've never seen Cirque du Soleil live, though I hope to one day. Of their shows on DVD, my favorites are Quidam and Varekai, both featuring the talented John Gilkey. (Other “old friends” from Quidam I was pleased to see in Varekai are hand-balance artist Olga Pikhienko and acrobat/dancers Tatiana Gousarova and Oleg Ouchakov). Whenever the unlovely world of human behavior gets me down, watching a Cirque DVD reminds me that we are capable of sublime beauty, as well. “Body Skating,” from Varekai, is one of the most joyful performances I've ever seen. If you like Quidam, be sure to visit Katiydid's excellent Quidam Fan Site.
