I'm a clown, stiltwalker, juggler, musician, starting to work on some acrobatics, and I work for a (circusfreaks.org) I have a BA in German, and am hoping to start practicing speaking with people more often in German. I was invited to come and try out Mastadon by @RussSharek and have been enjoying it thus far.

Welcome to my friend @alittlekennaart !! I'd suggest making a post and taking a look through the hashtag to find some cool people to put in your feed :) Russ is @RussSharek , and Marie is @naugeleh

And some days, you refresh the gaff tape on your stilts, reminding you that this circus is much like any other theater project. Held together with gaff and determination.


A terrific night in the clown lab this evening, followed by some time in the gym where @Avalon and I landed some acrobatic tricks we've been working on for months.

Tired and sore, and happy.

One of my dear friends re-recorded some of her songs as a kid-friendly mixtape!

I absolutely adore "Cheshire Kitten"

I used the original song as encore music in a show earlier this year.

“It wasn’t the farmers. Through an increasingly bold set of experiments, involving remote-controlled boats, computer simulations, a makeshift dam, and vast tankers of excrement-filled water, Dutton and Subalusky identified the real culprits: hippos.”

And yes, we did get her home safely.

@RussSharek and I sat down at our local coffee shop before heading to a class he teaches. We started chatting with a couple of young ladies sitting near us. By the end of our chat about what we do, one of them agreed to come along to class. With us, in our car. This boggled my mind as I grew up being told to NEVER get in the car with strangers. But I guess in the world of Uber, having strangers drive you somewhere interesting is more normal than I could have imagined.

"What a nonsense" was my first thought. But their arguments... make sense. Maybe it's not such a bad thing.

There are plenty of thirty year old computers around, but, you know what? I'll bet their survival rate is lower than 30 year old people, even when those people in question subsist on gas station hot dogs and coca cola.
