Nascar Ballet


Fascinating, I would totally go see this (from NewYorkish)


NASCAR ballet

“How do you get people in a small Southern city interested in the performing arts? You do what a ballet company in Roanoke, Virginia did and develop NASCAR ballet, a show where “modern dancers (who represent cars) circle a forty foot horseshoe track that banks around the corner complete with break away railings.” And how do you fund such an unusual project? You follow NASCAR’s lead, of course: “As the dancers gracefully careen around the track, collide and are rebuilt, logos of sponsoring companies are displayed prominently all over their bodies.”“

I brought this up during my TechEd Dallas talk, but Nascar and technical product demos have a lot in common. You don’t go to high speed performance, you go to see the crashes.

    Why are they going the wrong way?

    NASCAR is LTO – Left turn only.

    Leave it to a bunch of oddballs to mess up one of the most popular "sports" in america.

  2. Jason H – NICE CATCH! I totally didn’t notice that, you should email them and complain!

    This is just disturbing. I’m feeling embarrassed, nay humiliated. I’m remembering my days in fifth grade, when I raced my good friend O.L. (we rednecks love to be id’d by our initials)up and down the hallways at Oak Grove elementary. Down the Mulsanne Straight we’d charge, past Mrs. Sharitz’s classroom, hopping the three stairs to a bone-jarring conclusion at the finish line (aka the cafeteria entrance). We had our STP jackets and we made "motor noises" as we slingshotted past the slower traffic (girls). My face is surely flush as I recall the requisite tire-squealing sound effects that came naturally from our prepubescent larnyxes. NASCAR ballet? Old hat. We had it pegged in the late 60s/early 70s. And we were GOOD, man. DAMN good!!

  5. Nothing to say, interisting point of view.

    Program on the emergence of civilization.

    "14 species of large animals capable of domesitcation in the history of mankind.

    13 from Europe, Asia and northern Africa.

    None from the sub-Saharan African continent. "

    Favor.

    And disfavor.

    They point out Africans’ failed attempts to domesticate the elephant and zebra, the latter being an animal they illustrate that had utmost importance for it’s applicability in transformation from a hunting/gathering to agrarian-based civilization.

    The roots of racism are not of this earth.

    Austrailia, aboriginals:::No domesticable animals.

    The North American continent had none. Now 99% of that population is gone.

    AIDS in Africa.

    Organizational Heirarchy/Levels of positioning.

    Heirarchical order, from top to bottom:

    1. MUCK – perhaps have experienced multiple universal contractions (have seen multiple big bangs), creator of the artificial intelligence humans ignorantly refer to as "god"

    2. Perhaps some mid-level alien management

    3. Evil/disfavored aliens – runs day-to-day operations here and perhaps elsewhere

    Terrestrial management/positioning:

    4. Chinese/egyptians – this may be separated into the eastern and western worlds

    5. Romans –

    6. Mafia – the real-world 20th century interface that constantly turns over generationally so as to reinforce the widely-held notion of mortality

    7. Jews, corporation, women, politician – Evidence exisits to suggest mafia management over all these groups.

    Movies foreshadowing catastrophy

    1985 James Bond View to a Kill 1989 San Francisco Loma Prieta earthquake.

    Our society gives clues to the system in place. We all have heard the saying "He has more money than god." There is also an episode of the Simpsons where god meets Homer and says "I’m too old and rich for this."

    This is the system on earth because this is the system everywhere.

    I don’t want to suggest the upper eschelons are evil and good is the fringe.

    But they have made it abundantly clear that doing business with evil (disfavored) won’t help people. They say only good would have the ear, since evil is struggling for survival, and therefore only the favored could help.

    The clues are there which companies are favored and which are disfavored, but they conceal it very hard because it is so crucial.

    I offer an example of historical proportions:::

    People point to Walmart and cry "anti-union".

    Unions enable disfavored people to live satisfactorly without addressing their disfavor. This way their family’s problems are never resolved. Without the union they would have to accept the heirarchy, their own inferiority.

    Unions serve to empower.

    Walmart is anti-union because they are good. They try to help people address and resolve their problems by creating an enviornment where there are fewer hurdles.

    Media ridicule and lawsuits are creations to reinforce people’s belief that Walmart is evil in a subsegment of the indistry dominated by the middle and lower classes.

    Low-cost disfavored Chinese labor is utilized by corporate america to maximize margins. They all do it. Only WalMart gets fingered because they are the ones who help, and those who seek to create confusion in the marketplace want to eliminate the vast middle class who have a real chance and instead stick with lower classes who may not work otherwise. So they dirty him up while allowing the others to appear clean.

    The middle class is being deceived. They are being misled into the unfavored, and subsequently will have no assistance from their purchases with corporate america.

    I believe the coining of the term "Uncle Sam" was a clue alluding to just this::Sam Walton and WalMart is one of few saviors of the peasant class.

    Amercia is a country of castoffs, rejects. Italy sent its criminals. Malcontents.

    Between the thrones, the klans and kindred, they "decided" who they didn’t want and acted, creating discontent and/or starvation.

    The u.s. is full of disfavored rejects. It is the reason for the myriad of problems not found in European countries. As far as the Rockafellers and other industrialists of the 19th century go, I suspect these aren’t their real names. I suspect they were chosen to go and head this new empire.

    Royalty is the right way to organize a society. Dictatorships and monarchies are a reflection of the antient’s hierarchical organization.

    Positions go to those who have favor with the rulers, as opposed to being elected.

    Elections bring a false sense of how the world is. Democracy misleads people.

    Which is why the disfavored rejects were sent to the shores of America::To keep them on the wrong path.

    Jesus Christ is a religious figure of evil. These seperatist churches formed so they could still capture the rest of the white people, keeping them worshipping the wrong god.

    And now they do it to people of color, Latinos and Asians, after centuries of preying upon them.

    Simpson’s foreshadowing::Helloween IV special, Flanders is Satan. "Last one you ever suspect."

    "You’ll see lots of nuns where you’re going:::hell!!!" St. Wigham, Helloween VI, missionary work, destroying cultures.

    Over and over, the Simpsons was a source of education and enlightenment, a target of ridicule by the system which wishes to conceal its secrets.

    Since Buddism doesn’t recongnize a god, the calls are never heard, and Chinese representation is instead selected by the thrones.

    Budda was the Asian’s Jesus Christ::: bad for the people. "They came up at the same time for a reason."

    Jews maim the body formed in the image of "god", and inflicted circumsision upon all other white people, as well as the evil that is Jesus Christ.

    I think about how Jews (were used to) created homosexuality among Slavics, retribution for the Holocaust.

    Then I think of the Catholic Church and its troubles.

    What connection is here between Jews and the Catholic church???

    If it is their sinister motives that’s behind the evil that is Jesus Christ are they being used at all?

    Perhaps it is them who are pulling strings.

    Their centuries of slavery in Egypt proves their disfavor.

    The Jew leaders decided to prey on the up-and-coming Europeans to try to fix their problems with the ruling elite, a recurring aspect of their methodology.

    I believe Islam is the one true religion, and those misled christians who attack "god"’s most favored people will pay dearly one day.
