Took in a performance of Cirque de Soleil's Zumanity in Vegas on Sunday night. Incredible performance of acrobatics, humor and great music. The band is elevated above the stage with the drummer on a separate balconey and the bassist on his own little stage below the drummer. This particular Cirque's theme is sexuality, so there was lots and lots (and lots) of nudity. About 15 minutes into this assault of lights and sound and imagery, my wife leans over and asks me why I was staring off into the rafters. I told her I was trying to check out the Alembic (an Excel I believe) that the bassist was using...she just rolled her eyes, shook her head and gave my leg a pat.
